Democrat Stronghold Still Allowing BLM Mobs To Extort Local Businesses

In early August, we reported on an extortion racket in Louisville, Kentucky. Local businesses are expected to give 1.5% of sales to approved non-profits and meet various other demands. If you refuse? you get a visit from some toughs, possibly a mob. It’s illegal, but local Democrats have done nothing to stop it.

We featured an immigrant business owner, Fernando Martinez, in our original reporting. He refused to bow down. This time around, it is a Jordanian immigrant named Fadi Faouri.

He’s living in his shop to protect it from thugs and looters. He sleeps there when he can sleep and plans to move a few blocks away until the mob burned down his new property.

 

“Stuff is being damaged on a nightly basis, people are shooting at each other every night,” said Faouri, who’s had the shop for eight years. “Every night we have a new store that got looted. They break in, they take whatever and go. They walk away.

Business is so bad right now because of the protests, Faouri planned to move his shop a few blocks away starting Monday.

The new location was torched Thursday night.

 

This Democrat stronghold (in an otherwise red state, has not done a thing to stop the illegal extortion, protection payments, purity tests, compelled speech, property damage, or the violence – much of it affecting minority business owners.

This is their new normal, and guess what? Democrats appear to have no problem with making it yours.
