Wisconsin Family Business Burned to the Ground by BLM, Owner Speaks Out: “Why did we deserve it?”


In case if the mainstream media’s been hiding it from you, there’s absolute chaos going on in Wisconsin right now.

Black Lives Matter “protesters” ran through the streets last night, burning buildings and looting businesses.

One business owner decided to speak out after his family business was looted and burned to the ground:

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel has the story on the current riots:

The anger and frustration that has shaken Kenosha after police shot a Black man in the back seven times at point-blank range has left a trail of smoldering destruction from the city’s government campus to its Uptown area.

At least half a dozen buildings burned to the ground, including small businesses and a Wisconsin probation and parole office. Every car in a dealership lot was charred.

Countless other buildings had smashed windows and vandalized exteriors.

“This is numbing. This is our livelihood,” Christine Wallent said as she looked at the charred remains of B&L Office Furniture Inc. on 60th Street, which has been owned and operated by her family for 40 years.

One after another Tuesday, business owners and managers spoke with blank, unfocused expressions as they and others tried to clean and make sense of the mess.

Several related similar experiences of witnessing their buildings being damaged on Facebook livestreams, hearing their own alarms sound and watching their property be destroyed.

On Sunday evening, cars were set aflame and buildings were vandalized near the Kenosha County Courthouse after Jacob Blake, 29, was shot by police as he tried getting into a car with his three children. His father has said Blake is in stable condition but is paralyzed from the waist down.

Police and the public again clashed outside the courthouse Monday, but the property damage increased in devastation and spread further southwest, along a stretch of 60th Street and to the Uptown area of 22nd Avenue.

Take a look at the news on Twitter:

If the protesters are trying to send a message, burning and looting businesses is the absolute wrong way to do it.

And of course, Democrats don't want to do anything about the riots!

The riots in Wisconsin began after police shot a black man, Jacob Blake.

According to Fox News, Blake's mother has pleaded for the violence to stop:

The mother of a Black man who was shot multiple times by police in Kenosha, Wis., setting off two nights of unrest and looting that have mirrored nationwide protests seen this summer, pleaded for calm Tuesday.

Flanked by the family of Jacob Blake, Julia Jackson told reporters outside the Kenosha County Courthouse that her son would not be pleased by the violence unfolding in the city.

"As I was riding through here, this city, I noticed a lot of damage and it doesn't reflect my son," Jackson said. "So I'm really asking, and encouraging everyone in Wisconsin and abroad to take a moment and examine your heart. As I pray for my son's healing ... I also have been praying even before this for the healing of our country."
