New York City Police Department officers under the leadership of far-left city Mayor Bill de Blasio were forced Saturday to arrest a black woman for the alleged crime of “defacing” his beloved taxpayer-funded Black Lives Matter mural on Fifth Street.
Video footage from the arrest showed the woman, identified as proud Christian conservative activist Bevelyn Beatty, 29, pouring black paint on the mural as she lectured bystanders about how defunding the police would only hurt black people.
“Black lives matter, but you want to defund the police for black people? You’re lying. No, we’re not standing with Black Lives Matter. We want our police. Refund our police. You don’t care about black lives,” she said.
I love this woman

As the officers — one of many who’ve been assigned to watch over the mural as the city suffers through an unprecedented actual-crime wave — tried to grab Beatty and pull her away from the mural, one officer wound up sustaining a minor injury.
“The scene turned chaotic as police officers tried to arrest the woman, but she apparently resisted, causing one officer to fall hard to the concrete on Fifth Avenue, injuring his shoulder and writhing in pain,” local station WCBS reported.
Witnesses said it “seemed like he slipped on the wet paint.”

As all this occurred, one bystander shrieked at Beatty.
“F—ing stop this idiot! F–k you, b—-rd a–. F–k you!” he angrily screamed.
Ironically, when the officers finally got hold of Beatty and arrested her, the pro-BLM bystander didn’t utter a single complaint about police brutality or whatever.
According to WCBS, Beatty’s cohort, Edmee Chavannes, 39, was also arrested.
The duo’s whole operation, including Chavannes’s part in it, were captured in a longer video posted to Beatty’s popular YouTube page.

The duo have long been known for their commentary and activism.
As the George Floyd riots were raging around the country in late May, the two instead showed up outside an abortion clinic in Manhattan to protest on behalf of the lives of babies. And for this act, they were reportedly handcuffed and arrested.
“This is a clear statement of their bias now. It’s blatant now. It’s really truly biased against Christians, against pro-life abolitionists,” Beatty said to Fox News at the time, angry over she and Chavannes being arrested but so many rioters being let off the hook.
“We’re black women but we do not support Black Lives Matter because they’re hand-in-hand with Planned Parenthood that kills African-American babies,” she added.
“They’re fraudulent hypocrites… and I believe all lives matter because God created them. There are thousands of George Floyds that die every day in their mother’s womb and it’s just as injust as when he died at the hands of that police officer.”
Beatty’s also been seen in Seattle educating locals about the Democrat Party:

And in Florida being arrested for “disrupting” a city council meeting on face masks:
And so it begins.
“Three arrested in Cape Coral, Florida for not wearing a mask. City Council meeting was to decide whether or not to mandate masks, yet unmasked were not allowed to enter building.

She’s been doing what most conservatives are too afraid of or too busy to do, which is actually hitting the streets and confronting far-leftists to their face.
When not busy fighting for change, Beatty can be found on YouTube sharing words of wisdom and advice, including the advice that conservative whites stop being afraid to tell liberal non-whites the God-honest truth, no matter how “offensive” the truth might be.
As for de Blasio’s beloved BLM mural, it was “defaced” a total of at least three times this weekend, with the first incident happening on Saturday.
That afternoon, a diverse group of Trump supporters — including a black woman, a “transgender woman” and a Hispanic man — poured blue paint on the mural in honor of the police and were subsequently arrested (and also berated by bystanders).

And then later on Saturday, after Beatty and Chavannes’ arrest, yet another act of “vandalism” reportedly occurred.
“CBS2’s camera caught a man in a red hat throwing what appeared to be paint at the mural. He tried to run but was taken into police custody almost immediately, handcuffed and placed in the back of the cop’s SUV,” WCBS reported.
“Police say 42-year-old Wesley Davis, of Hempstead, was charged with criminal mischief and received a desk appearance ticket.”
All this happened days after a still-unidentified, still-on-the-run suspect was seen splattering red paint on the mural

Following the first act of vandalism Monday, de Blasio reportedly ordered seven city-paid workers to fix the mural and a team of police officers to guard it.
