The Marxist Black Lives Matter (BLM) organization is like the whiny child that will throw a tantrum if they don’t get what they want, just on a more destructive scale.

Tensions are running high as former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin is tried for allegedly killing George Floyd. Many are eagerly awaiting a guilty verdict for Chauvin - a little too eagerly.

According to The Blaze, model and BLM activist Maya Echols uploaded a video on TikTok, informing her several hundred thousand followers that "If George Floyd's murderer is not sentenced, just know that all hell is gonna break loose. Don't be surprised when buildings are on fire. Just sayin'."

BLM is basically holding property hostage, and if the jurors fail to convict Chauvin, then they will destroy cities across the country. Additionally, Echols posted the warning in a video. Forget about their rioting and looting during the summer of 2020, BLM is acting like a terrorist group.

However, their violent tendencies should not actually be a surprise when one considers their history.

The Blaze recounted in the same article how Ashley Gantt, the leader of a BLM chapter in Rochester, New York, expressed sentiments that were similar to Echols’.

“I don’t care if the whole city burned down," Gantt said mere days after Floyd's death, "we need justice, and that's the story that needs to be told."

Never mind that BLM was wreaking havoc on multiple U.S. cities last year with violent riots in reaction to George Floyd’s death.

Black lives do matter, but so do their actions, which are strongly indicating that BLM is a violent entity bent on submission and destruction.
