Member of a local Black Lives Matter organization called, The People’s Revolution harassed a charity event in West Allis, Wisconsin.
Since December 1984 a neighborhood in West Allis, Wisconsin go all out and decorate their home for Christmas and rename their neighborhood “Candy Cane Lane.” The neighborhood collects donations during the Christmas season for the Midwest Athlete Against Childhood Cancer Inc.
“The neighbors worked in concert in decorating their homes and encouraged visitors to make a small donation as they drove through the festively enhanced neighborhood. All of the money raised went to supporting research, treatment, and the eventual discovery of a cure for childhood cancers and related blood diseases.”
Videos on social media showed people chanting “no justice, no peace” and holding “Black Lives Matter” signs.
The activists marched up and down the street blocking traffic and played loud music to disrupt the event.
One activists wrote, “It was the week before Christmas, and all through the streets… TPR family as loud as can be. Waking up each block with holiday cheer, screaming “NOJUSTICE, NO PEACE”, until all around hear. Giving the gifts of our demands for Black and Brown lives, yet many around us would spread them lies. Santa has his list, the naughty and the nice, will our houses get skipped these following nights?” TPR stands of the People’s Revolution, the group that has protested for months in Wauwatosa; a TPR member is accused of a felony for discharging a firearm at former Police Officer Joseph Mensah.”
West Allis police released a statement:
“Last evening, starting at about 6:40 pm, we received a handful of calls of a protest group moving through Candy Cane Lane. The callers indicated that the group was causing traffic congestion and noise disturbances. West Allis officers responded to the area and monitored the situation. There was heavy traffic congestion related to Candy Cane Lane. There were reports of protestors walking in the roadway and using a bullhorn. Officers did not observe any violence or vandalism. No arrests were made and no citations were issued.”
Residents were furious and if BLM was hoping to bring people over to their side they failed.
Last I checked cancer doesn’t discriminate and all BLM did was disrupt people donating because they were too scared to get out of their cars. I hope they are proud of the fact their activism may have prevented someone from giving money that could have gone to help a black or brown child.
