At roughly 2:30 am, mere blocks from the White House, prominent Christian, conservative activist Bevelyn Beatty and several Proud Boys were stabbed while trying to stop an attack on another man. According to police Beatty and two other men sustained serious but non-life-threatening knife injuries but are expected to fully recover. The incident was caught on video.
In the video, Beatty is seen clutching her back while saying, “They stabbed me.” Another man walks toward the camera holding his bleeding ear. They are also seen flagging down police for help and asking bystanders to call an ambulance.
DC police are investigating the incident and have declined to identify any suspects or their political affiliation. They are looking for three suspects: two black males wearing all black clothing and one black female wearing black sweatpants, orange leggings, and a dark gray coat and armed with a knife.
The D.C. police initially identified the men who were stabbed as Proud Boys and the attackers as Black Lives Matter activists. The police then walked back that claim, saying that reporting the affiliations was premature and that they “don’t know who they were affiliated with.”
“At 2:30 in the morning when officers are trying to gather information on the scene, that information is preliminary in nature, and oftentimes, unfortunately, it changes,” Chief Peter Newsham said in a Wednesday afternoon news briefing. “So all I can say is that after more extensive investigation with the victims of the crime, we don’t know who they were affiliated with.”
As reported by Gateway Pundit, “Proud Boys founder Enrique Tarrio [says] . . . that he was slashed in the stomach, Beatty was stabbed in the back, and multiple other members of the men’s social group were stabbed and are now hospitalized with serious wounds.” Tarrio has identified his attackers as Black Lives Matter protesters.
Tarrio and witnesses to the attack confirm they believe they were stabbed by “Black Lives Matter” protesters.
From the hospital, Beatty posted a video confirming she was stabbed three times. The wounds punctured a lung and grazed her liver. Beatty also confirms that she and members of the Proud Boys were attacked by “kids” encouraged and protected by the Black Lives Matter movement:
Black Lives Matter D.C. has denied any direct involvement and demanded a retraction of the initial local media reports of the stabbing attack.
However, as an organization, Black Lives Matter, has encouraged violence towards police and oppositional political groups. In essence, when the organization supports this kind of violence, how are they not responsible?
In her video, Beatty talks to the heart of the problem when BLM only addresses law enforcement issues and never talks about the violence and crime in black communities committed by black youth. Beatty says, “It was three black kids from the hood who stabbed us tonight . . . and when they get shot by police [for future crimes] you want to make them martyrs. They’re the ones who are dangerous . . . they are ruthless and don’t care . . . BLM will protect them.”
