A white woman was smiling while holding a pro-police sign when she infuriated a Black Lives Matter protester, who decided to harass the blonde over her stance. With cameras rolling, the BLM supporter issued a threat. Don’t miss this.
Following a police-involved fatal shooting of a black man last week, protests erupted in Omaha, Nebraska, where a smiling woman was spotted holding a pro-police sign. Her message struck a chord with the opposing side, which had gathered to protest against cops. Very quickly, she found herself on the receiving end of harassment and threats for her stance — and it was all caught on camera.
“I [heart] OPD,” the blonde-haired woman’s sign read. Her message was presumably short for “I love the Omaha Police Department,” and it was in stark contrast to the sentiments shared by the BLM supporters who had gathered. Dressed in a light-colored “Nebraska” sweatshirt, she stuck out prominently among the mob of protesters dressed in black, and it wasn’t long before she became the target of their outrage.
In one of the multiple videos emerging on social media, the white woman weaves around the anti-cop crowd that was growing around her. “Baby girl, you’re not walking away anywhere!” one protester yells before continuing to holler at her just feet from her face. When the woman dares to smile in response, things only go from bad to worse as her opposition loses it. “Do you think black people being murdered is f***in’ funny, bitch?” her adversary asks.
As seen in the clips below, the woman with the pro-cop sign attempts to put distance between herself and the obviously angry protester, but she’s followed by the protester, who continues to yell at her while intruding into her personal space. After the accosted woman appears to push the protester’s arm away from her face, the protester threatens her. “Put your motherf*ckin’ hands on me, bitch!” the protester dares the smiling woman with the pro-police sign.

As the woman with the pro-cop sign is attempting to get away from her adversary, the camera pans away, attempting to capture another commotion occurring out of frame. According to The Blaze, “it appears police used pepper spray on the unruly crowd, several of whom yell at cops for their actions and run away coughing.”
“Two women were arrested during a protest outside of the Omaha Police Department headquarters Saturday night,” NBC’s 6 News Omaha reported with The Blaze adding that “the arrests stemmed from assaults against a man and woman who came to the protest with pro-police signs.” Before arriving at the police headquarters, protesters were chanting “Black Lives Matter,” the outlet added.
According to NBC‘s report, one of the two women was arrested for disorderly conduct and destruction of property while the other was arrested for misdemeanor assault and disorderly conduct after officers went into the crowd and removed the two women, who allegedly assaulted the pro-police group. Police reportedly removed the pro-cop group, as well.
The outlet said that a man and woman, who arrived at the scene at 10:20 pm, holding “pro-police” signs, were not obstructing the protest against police. Five minutes later, however, protesters allegedly used a large cloth sign to block officers’ view of the pro-cop crowd. When officers repositioned themselves, they saw the pro-police people being assaulted and their signs being torn.
The crowd eventually dispersed after pepper balls and pepper spray were used on the sidewalk “in front of agitators” while controlling the crowd and during suspects’ arrests. Although it’s unclear whether the arrests were related to the threatening episode involving the blonde woman, one clip does show a man, who appears to be with her, getting his sign taken from him.
Meanwhile, Black Lives Matter founder Patrisse Cullors — a self-described “trained Marxist” — wants Joe Biden to enact radical, far-left legislation that would lead to the abolition of police and prisons, as well as other radical proposals under the BREATHE Act. Calling the controversial act, which was announced in July by Democratic Reps. Rashida Tlaib of Michigan and Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts, “landmark civil rights bill,” Cullors wants the “next Presidential administration to prioritize the passing” of the legislation.
The BREATHE Act wouldn’t just abolish the police and prisons, though. The drastic legislation also calls for the end of life sentences as well as all mandatory minimum sentencing laws and the dismantling of the Drug Enforcement Administration, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Customs and Border Protection, and immigration detention centers, demanding the repeal of federal laws that “criminalize human movement and border entry.”
In addition, the act also calls for the elimination of “surveillance tactics that are disproportionately used to target Black, Brown, and Muslim communities by prohibiting predictive policing, racial recognition technologies, drones, and similar tools,” as well as “eliminating the use of electronic monitoring, including ankle monitors, smartphone applications, and any other tool used to track location.”
It would remove all police, school resource officers, and armed security from schools, as well as ban the metal detectors and surveillance equipment, but that’s not all. Did I mention reparations? Yeah, the BREATHE Act calls for a “commission” to “study” proposals for that too, but that’s not even the most shocking part.
The BREATHE Act also calls for “repealing and replacing the 1994 Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act.” That’s ironic, to say the least, considering, Biden — who Cullors has called on to pass the BREATHE Act within the first 100 days of his administration — “largely wrote and shepherded through the legislative process” as chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee.
I don’t know whether that’s funny or sad, but Cullors’ comment about the 2020 presidential election speaks volumes: “Black people — especially Black women — have saved the United States. Whether in Milwaukee, Detroit, Philadelphia, Atlanta, or Los Angeles, Black voters showed up in huge numbers to turn this country around and remove the racist in the White House.”
And, who do they want in the alleged racist’s place? None other than those who created the problems they are allegedly fighting to fix. You can’t make this stuff up.
