Black Lives Matter protesters reportedly crashed a Christmas charity fundraiser for children with cancer this past weekend.
The fundraiser, protest, and march took place on Candy Cane Lane in the city of West Allis, Wisconsin.
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that “a group of about 50 Black Lives Matter supporters” marched at a Christmas light show of houses on the street which “has raised money for the Midwest Athletes Against Childhood Cancer.”
The Sentinel notes that there were “no arrests or citations” issued during the protest and that “there were no reports of violent activity.”
The protesters marched down the street chanting, “What do we want … Justice,” threatening to “shut it down” “if we don’t get it,” and holding Black Lives Matter signs.
The protest, organized by a group known as The People’s Revolution, a BLM organization, posted a video of their protest online.
Black Lives Matter Harasses a Christmas Fundraiser for Children’s Cancer
At least one observer didn’t find the Black Lives Matter protest interrupting a fundraiser for children with cancer to be all that delightful a demonstration.
According to the outlet ‘Wisconsin Right Now,’ some of the protesters shouted profanities, particularly as they came across homes still sporting signs in support of President Trump.
“These people saw my ‘Back the Badge’ sign and ‘Trump 2020’ sign and began to shout at us,” one observer alleged on social media.
“They began to give us the middle finger and shouted, ‘F*** YOU F*** THE POLICE F*** TRUMP!’” they continued. “Uhm really? I am holding my ONE-year-old son in my arms.”

The Sentinel reports that “Since 1984, Candy Cane Lane has raised money for the Midwest Athletes Against Childhood Cancer. So far this year, organizers have raised more than $121,000.”
Reaction to BLM Crashing the Fundraiser
Not too many people were all that impressed with the Black Lives Matter group choosing to interrupt a Christmas fundraiser for children with cancer.
Protesting a a children’s cancer fundraiser. Way to go, clowns. They should have to make a donation from the millions they got in donations. https://t.co/PONy58HvMx

They do NOT care. It’s ALL about them.

At one event this past summer involving Black Lives Matter, a protester was heard inciting others by shouting, “If you kill one of us, it’s time for us to kill one of yours.”
Prior to that, a group of non-peaceful protesters in Madison, Wisconsin tore down a statue of Hans Christian Heg, a Norwegian-American immigrant who died fighting to end slavery during the Civil War.
When not being ignorant of facts, they’re ignorant of time and place, protesting a children’s cancer fundraiser during the Christmas season. Pathetic.
