The city of Washington, DC is putting a fresh coat of paint on the Black Lives Matter street mural, despite the recent controversy of some BLM groups showing support for the terrorists of Hamas.
You would think such a thing would make the BLM brand toxic, but apparently not.
The people who run our capital city still revere the group enough to refresh this public show of support.

DC Freshens Up ‘Black Lives Matter’ Street Art Despite Hamas Endorsements
The District of Columbia is freshening up its massive “Black Lives Matter” street mural even as the Black Lives Matter organization faces intense backlash for social media posts aligning with the Hamas terrorist attack on Israel earlier this month.
BLM affiliates have expressed solidarity with the “resistance” against Israel, compared attacks on Israel to racial struggles within the U.S., promoted imagery apparently depicting the paragliders who slaughtered Israeli concert-goers during the attacks, and more.
The controversial mural, commissioned by D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser following rioting over the death of George Floyd, features the words “Black Lives Matter” painted in 50-foot-tall yellow letters along a two-block portion of 16th Street NW, just outside the White House. That area has been dubbed “Black Lives Matter Plaza” by the city.
In an October 2021 news release, the city said that the work to “transform Black Lives Matter Plaza cost $4.8 million,” promising that another $3 million would be spent on the plaza in the following months.
People have thoughts about this.
GP Should probably just add “… and Jewish lives don’t” to the (literal) street sign to take into account liberal sensibilities. https://t.co/diD2AWTaFn

Glad to DC spending $ on this when 13 year old kids are regularly committing armed carjackings. https://t.co/5zSRBae7z1

Congressmen are getting carjacked in DC and this is their priority… https://t.co/gTp1Bs0BOC

This should not be a priority. Washington, DC needs new leadership.
