Not Woke Enough: Black Lives Matter Activists March On Beverly Hills ‘Eat The Rich!’

by Paul Goldberg

Several arrests were made in Beverly Hills after Black Lives Matter activists marched through a Beverly Hills residential neighborhood.

The group of marchers was chanting “Eat the rich!” And “Abolish capitalism now!”

The Beverly Hills Police Department tweeted: “The unlawful assembly in the area of Rexford Dr & Carmelita Ave has ended with arrests being made. Protesters have now left the City.”

Human Events Managing Editor Ian Miles Cheong put together video highlights  of protestors as they moved through the residential neighborhood and tore down American flags screaming “Eat the rich!” And abolish capitalism now!.”

“The Black Lives Matter mob shut down Santa Monica Boulevard, Rodeo Drive, and intersections around the city center,” wrote Cheong. At one point the group “seized a privately owned American flag in a residential suburb, shredding it and pulling it down.” In the residential areas, video shows, the group played “loud music and blocked the streets.”

“The police showed up in full force to arrest members of the Black Lives Matter mob making a nuisance of themselves across residential Los Angeles streets,” Cheong captions one post with video of police arresting members of the group. “One pretended to be injured by the police and forced them to drag him.”

There was no reported looting or fires being set to businesses.

The police in the city of Beverly Hills issued an order a couple of weeks ago to try and keep protests people.

“To preserve the peace and tranquility of residential neighborhoods, effective tonight and until further notice, no more than 10 people shall gather in an assembly in a public right of way in a residential area between the hours of 9 p.m. and 8 a.m.,” the City of Beverly Hills said in a statement. “An assembly is defined as any gathering or group of 10 or more people on a public street, sidewalk or other public place if those 10 people have a common purpose or goal.”

“Any assembly that is silent, such as a candlelight vigil, and gatherings on private property are exempt from this emergency order,” the city added.
