(PatriotHeadline.com)- It’s very easy for Democrats, Antifa, and supporter of Black Lives Matter to say that the looting taking place during their “racial justice” riots is just an example of opportunists taking advantage, but a Black Lives Matter organizer chose instead to justify the looting as “reparations.”
On Monday, Black Lives Matter activists held a rally in Chicago following nights of violence, looting, and general unrest. The attendees were showing their support with dozens of people who were arrested following the looting, and organizer Ariel Atkins even said that looting was acceptable.
“I don’t care if someone decides to loot a Gucci or a Macy’s or a Nike store, because that makes sure that person eats,” the BLM organizer said, assuming that the people looting are doing so in order to make money to buy food.
I’d love to know where she got that information.
“That makes sure that person has clothes,” she continued, without an ounce of irony.
Atkins went on to say that looting designer stores is effectively just taking “reparations” and argued that criminal action shouldn’t concern the businesses being impacted by the violent extremism because they “have insurance.”
Social media posts also supported Atkins’ claims, suggesting that people should come out on August 10 at 7 p.m. to “support the people arrested last night for protesting another police shooting & taking reparations from corporations.”
We will be rallying at jail support TONIGHT! 7pm at 18th & State

It kind of brings home the point that corporations can pander as much as they like but it will never satisfy the demands of far-left activists. Even Nike, one of the wokest corporations out there when it comes to Black Lives Matter, LGBTQ, and fat acceptance, was targeted by these extremists “taking reparations.”
The violence became so extreme in Chicago over the weekend that in the early hours of Monday morning, Chicago city officials ordered train and bus services to be stopped and for bridges to be raised to prevent further access for people hoping to join the riots. Sorry, I mean, “reparations.”
