While filming the anti-war protest two weeks ago a came across this group known as the Black Hebrew Israelites who are normally seen preaching in downtown Hollywood. Many BHI groups, such as this one shown in my pictures and videos advocate Black supremacy, the idea that Jesus was originally black, and that blacks (specifically those in the Western hemisphere) are the original Israelites from the Bible. They are also known to be highly confrontational and belligerent.

From wikipedia:

In late 2008, the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) described as black supremacist what it called “the extremist fringe of the Hebrew Israelite movement”. It wrote that the members of such groups “believe that Jews are devilish impostors and … openly condemn whites as evil personified, deserving only death or slavery”. The SPLC also said that “most Hebrew Israelites are neither explicitly racist nor anti-Semitic and do not advocate violence”.

The Black Hebrew groups characterized as black supremacist by the SPLC include the Nation of Yahweh and the Israelite Church of God in Jesus Christ. Also, the Anti-Defamation League has written that the “12 Tribes of Israel” website, maintained by a Black Hebrew group, promotes black supremacy.

In the video below is a group of Black Hebrew Israelites arguing with a group of people, including other African Americans. Near the middle of the vid they begin to argue with one of the members of the Christian group (the one wearing the hat) who were preaching to the anti-war protesters by the sidewalk.  He can also be seen in the second vid in Part 3 guarding the pastor who was preaching.

Here are some pics from me:

Sorry for taking so long in adding part 4. I had a lot to do considering school.

Anyways, by a little after 12 pm did the protesters began marching through Hollywood Blvd.

The march ended right outside Grauman’s Chinese Theater, and in a huge act of obvious hypocrisy that everyone could stop out besides the protesters, after hours of bitching over the supposed evils of capitalism they begin to left-wing oriented products.

Did I mention that some of the products were T-shirts that glorified left-wing militants, known terrorist organizations, and communist dictators?

Then, in a desperate bid for attention, some of the protesters with pictures of their sons or daughters, specifically parents who had loved ones who were killed or wounded in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, began squatting outside the entrance of the Chinese theater, which is private property and illegal, in an act of “civil disobedience.”

Also, the protesters placed boots that either belonged to dead soldiers who served in Iraq and Afghanistan or were used represent them in some way.

Here one of the officers tries to negotiate with one of the squatters in order to get them to leave. It was practically useless.

After a little while, one of the guys who worked security was fed-up with the trespassing hippies and began going around and throwing away the boots in a while plastic bag. One of the squatting protesters (the bald white guy below) tried to feebly grab the bag in order to get back the boots but it was in vain. Afterwards everyone except the protesters were thrown off of the premises.

Sorry for the quality in that last pic. That’s it for now. I may upload some more bonus footage and photos later so please subscribe if I’m interested.
