Last weekend, David Nelson and Nicole Anderson spread black paint over a yellow BLM mural displayed on the street in front of the Martinez courthouse. The mural had been sanctioned by city officials.
Nelson, who grew up in Martinez, said he has “no problem with Black people,” but is bothered by the BLM movement because “they have a hidden agenda” and “we’re sick of the narrative.”
Carlson, who has described the Black Lives Matter movement as a “terror organization” and “poison,” wondered aloud what they thought about a statue that was ripped down in San Francisco, which he attributed to “BLM activists,” and spray painted with “Kill Whitey.” …

“It’s because we decided to stand against an organization we don’t agree with,” Nelson replied. “… We’re being silenced. It’s a cancel culture that we’re living in.”
Nelson then called on more Americans to “band together and actually take to the streets.” He added that urgency is required “because we are starting to lose ground here.” …
Carlson concluded the interview by saying he hopes conservatives rally to their defense because their situation “is outrageous.” […]
