In a scenario that gives a new meaning to the term “woke,” BLM protesters staged a late-night, raucous march through the Washington, D.C., upscale Georgetown residential enclave.
The noisy midnight event, which was captured on a series of Twitter video clips by various individuals, prompting Newsmax correspondent Emerald Robinson to quip that “Unemployed interns from the Obama Administration decided to march through the neighborhood of their parents last night asking for an increase in their monthly allowance.”
BLM protests ordinarily occur in downtown areas, so this turnout may represent a shift in tactics from assembling in commercial districts to showing up at people’s homes to put forth the social justice message.
Separately, when Antifa showed up at Fort Collins, Colo., residential neighborhood, it didn’t go well for them.
Assisted by megaphones and cymbals, the D.C. BLM demonstrators chanted “if we don’t get no justice, then you won’t get no sleep,” among other things, as they conducted their march.
At one point, they also repeated “we shut this down” over and over, as well as simply “get up,” with a few expletives thrown in for good measure.
A similar “no justice, no sleep” mantra also appeared to be in play.

D.C. is a solid Democrat city, and Georgetown is a liberal precinct where many progressive-oriented politicians and political operatives live.
Thus, it is far from evident how the BLM protesters are winning friends and influencing people by interrupting the Deep State’s deep sleep.
In one video, one or more of the marchers say “Black Lives are mattering right out here, but you have to wake up to see it.” (**Warning for language)

History has shown that most of the police brutality incidents have occurred in municipalities controlled by Democrats for decades.
That aside, many Twitter users were quick to pick up on the irony of the situation specifically in regard to Georgetown. Here is a sample.
BLM protesters are now walking through Georgetown (it’s close to midnight) telling people to “wake up” over megaphones, while also creating a ton of other noise.
This is not how you get people to support your cause.

This is a complete waste of time. There are probably close to zero Georgetown residents who don’t already support BLM.

Cool. Do these fools know that Georgetown is mostly liberal supporters of BLM? 😂😂😂

BLM and other rioters already chased away most of the businesses on Wisconsin Avenue and M St. in Georgetown months ago. If that was not disgraceful enough, they are now threatening Washingtonians in their own homes.

I guarantee that the vast majority of those Georgetown residents are Lefty Democrats who supported BLM, defund the police, the Antifa riots and all the rest. So you know what? Screw them.

Everyone that lives in Georgetown is a wealthy Lib-Democrat (I’m from DC).
They shouldn’t complain at all because they voted for this.

Interesting public relations strategy. I predict it won’t work.

Oh my God Jack my eyes are tearing up and I’m exasperating. The deep ironies here are stunning.
Georgetown is the swamp. This is like the @cnn headquarters being looted and burned in Atlanta.
The hallowed homes of the Clintons, Kerry’s Kennedy’s and Pelosi. Peaches. Kiss.

Georgetown tries to sleep in the bed they made.
