Protesters that appeared to be associated with Black Lives Matter in New York reacted to the Derek Chauvin verdict by harassing diners and demanding white owners of restaurants “get the f**k out” of the city.

Unruly protests broke out in numerous major cities last night despite Chauvin being convicted on all counts.

“We don’t want your money! We don’t want your f**king taquerias owned by white men!” the crowd chants before another demonstrator suggests that the mob “take 30 percent” of their income.

The group later marched across Manhattan Bridge while chanting “one solution, revolution” as they carried a banner displaying bloody handprints and the words “abolish the NYPD.”

Former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin was convicted of murder and manslaughter in the death of George Floyd on Tuesday afternoon.

Chauvin, who was charged with second-degree unintentional murder, third-degree murder, and second-degree manslaughter has been found guilty on all charges.

Beyond that, harassing people who are trying to eat their dinner has become a specialty of Black Lives Matter since the start of last summer.

Politicians, mainly on the Democrat side of the aisle, have seized the Floyd case and used it as a soapbox to call for more police reform.

Then there was California Rep. Maxine Waters, who caused controversy when she called for protesters to be “more confrontational” if Chauvin was not found guilty of murder.

After the prosecution and defense gave their closing arguments in the case on the death of Floyd, the judge in the case said that Waters’ comments made this weekend could be used if there’s an appeal.

Judge Peter A. Cahill absolutely scorched Waters in his response, in which he declined to declare a mistrial in the case.

“I’ll give you that Congresswoman Waters may have given you something on appeal that may result in this whole trial being overturned,” the judge said.

“I wish elected officials would stop talking about this case, especially in a manner that’s disrespectful to the rule of law and to the judicial branch and our function,” he said, adding that it is disrespectful to the “coequal branches of government.”

“Their failure to do so is abhorrent,” he said.

Last week, Waters was heard at a protest for Floyd and Daunte Wright, who was also killed in a confrontation with police.

“I hope that we’re going to get a verdict that says guilty guilty guilty,” she “And if we don’t, we cannot go away.”

When reporters asked what people should do if there was not a guilty verdict she said, “We’ve got to stay on the street. And we’ve got to get more active, we’ve got to get more confrontational. We’ve got to make sure that they know that we mean business.”
