Popular Livestreamer, Podcaster, and reporter, Will Johnson of Unite America First confirmed in a live stream from Washington DC at Black Lives Matter Plazza, that the DC Police do in fact believe consider that discussion between Trump supporters and BLM and Antifa Activists is violence.
“I can’t believe that the Police said that we are violent at a peaceful event; there is no violence here. We want to have a civil conversation with them, or nothing is going to change, ” Johnson said as the DC Police are overheard saying that Johnson and his group should not attempt to engage with the BLM members they were apparently protecting.
IS IT A ‘NO GO’ ZONE FOR TRUMP SUPPORTERS?
“I am just trying to have a civil conversation, I am not yelling, I am just talking to people,” Johnson tells a police officer. “Who is the one bringing the violence. We just want to have a civil conversation. They are the ones who want to be violent,” he said. Looking into the camera, Johnson said, “See, I don’t understand that Is it that some police officers believe that we are being violent? I constantly hear that we are inciting violence simply by being here. We are not inciting violence because we are here. We are in America we want to have free reign to walk where we want to go. This doesn’t make any sense,”Johnson said.
On Sunday night’s Livestream, Johnson, toward the last 15 mins, is heard talking with a man about Confederate statues and President Donald J. Trump’s comments about Charlottesville. The two do not agree on the circumstances or Trump’s reaction, but at the end of the conversation, they have a “fist bump” and part amicably, with Johnson taking the man for the conversation.
Johnson then moves down the sidewalk where he engages with a couple of members of BLM and Antifa who are in an area behind the police, which has been sectioned off and guarded by the police for many hours, giving the activist group a safe place to occupy the street, disallowing Trump supporters to enter.
As Johnson asks if any of them would like to engage in a civil way, the police officers standing guard over BLM ask him to move along.

Breitbart News reported on Sunday from BLM Plaza, that the activist group, who want to defund the Police Department, are complaining that the Police were not protecting them well enough.
“Black Lives Matter DC activists complained on Sunday that the Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) failed to protect them while continuing to call for defunding police. The apparently conflicting statements came during a press conference held in Black Lives Matter Plaza Sunday afternoon,” Breitbart reported.
That Press Conference:
Residents of DC say that the Mayor, Muriel Bowser, has created a situation where the Police Department is charged with protecting criminal elements in their neighborhoods, creating a population who are afraid for their own safety, and also inadvertently creating a public appreciation for the Proud Boys, as Citizen police force, which the Proud Boys sometimes feel obligated to respond to, because there are Americans who are feeling unprotected and unsafe.
Here is some footage of the same DC police force putting themselves in harm’s way to protect the far left radical activists:
