This is a story along the lines of Winston Churchill’s take on appeasers feeding a crocodile, hoping it will eat them last.

Mayor Cheryl Selby, of Olympia, Washington, has been a vocal supporter of the Black Lives Matter movement that has exploded once again upon the American landscape in the aftermath of the death of George Floyd.

In fact, she even kneeled before the oft-violent mob.

But when these protesters showed up on her doorstep and vandalized her home, she called it “domestic terrorism.”

More from The Olympian:

On Friday night, two groups converged in downtown Olympia, and some became destructive, burning flags, smashing windows, and spray painting businesses and Olympia Mayor Cheryl Selby’s home.

The black-clad group eventually marched up Capitol Way and into the South Capitol neighborhood to Olympia Mayor Cheryl Selby’s house. There, the group chanted “abolish the police,” and a person spray painted her front porch and door with “BLM.”


Selby was not home at the time, nor was any member of her family, but she had a very different perspective of the movement after the incident.

“I’m really trying to process this,” Mayor Selby said, according to the Post Millennial. “It’s like domestic terrorism. It’s unfair.”

“It hurts when you’re giving so much to your community,” she added.

Ironically, Selby talked about leaders feeling “sick” earlier this month in a statement explaining that she would not institute a curfew for protesters and rioters, the paper noted.

“Every day since his murder, our country has shaken,” the mayor said in the release. “Convulsing between fear, rage, and nausea. We should feel sick. Those of us who hold the most microphones in our communities should feel nauseous.”

It’s fair to say that she’s feeling pretty ill at the moment.

Selby isn’t alone in her hypocrisy, former ESPN sports reporter Chris Martin Palmer was fully on board with the Black Lives Matter riots.

Responding to a photo of raging fires in Minneapolis, Palmer tweeted: “Burn that s*** down. Burn it all down.”

Yet, when the rioters showed up on his doorstep, he called them “animals.”

“They just attacked our sister community down the street,” he tweeted. “It’s a gated community and they tried to climb the gates. They had to beat them back. Then destroyed a Starbucks and are now in front of my building. Get these animals TF out of my neighborhood. Go back to where you live.”

Here’s a quick sampling of responses from Twitter reminding liberals that mobs are called mobs for a reason:
