Bill Ayers, one of the groups leaders, participated in the Capitol bombing, as well as the bombings of a New York City Police Department headquarters in 1970 and the Pentagon in 1972. Ayers is now celebrated as an education expert. Barack Obama’s political career was launched in his living room.

In 2020, in late May, tens of thousands of Black Lives Matter supporters laid siege to the White House following the death of career criminal George Floyd. More than 60 Secret Service officers and special agents sustained multiple injuries in three days worth of violent clashes in Lafayette Park and near the White House.
Some demonstrators repeatedly attempted to knock over security barriers and vandalized six Secret Service vehicles. Protesters threw bricks, rocks, bottles, fireworks and other items at officers and some Secret Service personnel were also kicked, punched and exposed to bodily fluids. Sixty Secret Service agents were wounded; 11 needed hospital care. This was the worst attack on the White House since 1812 and it was perpetrated by people the Democrats support and continually apologize for.
