BLM activists forced the closure of a popular restaurant after a quarrel over a social media post and a breakfast item named after a Civil War general in Omaha, Nebraska.
The 11-Worth Cafe was a staple of its neighborhood for 44 years, but it is now forever closed. The Omaha World-Herald reported police and city officials are investigating what caused the closure of the cafe, which was targeted over a breakfast item named after Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee.
Approximately 75 activists infuriated over the menu item blocked traffic and banged on the restaurant’s business for two days earlier this month.

The BLM activists also reportedly were infuriated over a Facebook post by the owner’s son, Tony Caniglia Jr., that called for lethal force to be used by police against rioters in other cities.
WOWT-TV reported the activists demanded a donation of between $500 and $1,000 to a black organization. Caniglia reportedly agreed to do so, but then someone with the BLM group allegedly demanded a six-figure payout in order to allow him to operate in peace.

Never thought I’d see the day when America would be ruled by violent anarchist mobs. It’s hard to comprehend why this is being allowed and even encouraged by state and local governments. We are seeing extortion, arson, looting, rioting, and outright terrorism by Black Lives Matter and Antifa with no protection for common people and their businesses.
As long as they are screaming and bullying and attacking, no thoughtful, productive, healing measures can be enacted. This is certainly a lose-lose circumstance and needs to be brought to an end so we can move forward with the solutions all of America wants to see.
