How long will Occupy Black Lives Matter last in DC?

There is no other word for what the two blocks in front of the White House have become other than a city-sanctioned Black Lives Matter occupation.

The two blocks recently deemed “Black Lives Matter Plaza” by Washington, D.C., Mayor Muriel Bowser, are closed to traffic that used to run north and south on 16th Street. In that space now are about two dozen vendors selling BLM-branded clothing, hats, pictures, and other novelties.

That might only be a minor nuisance if it not for the fact that those two blocks are also home to office buildings, two historic hotels, and one formerly busy restaurant. The Hay Adams, one of the beloved hotels of D.C., is completely shuttered, along with its basement-level bar, Off the Record. There’s no indication as to when it will reopen.

The same goes for P.J. Clarke’s, where locals have enjoyed visiting for lunch, dinner, and happy hours for the last decade. “Due to these unforeseen circumstances,” a sign says on the door, “we will be closing our doors for an undetermined amount of time.”

Until a wave of coronavirus sweeps over the encampment or winter sets in. One of the two.

That DC mayor is sure infuriating the businesses that depend upon DC tourism, isn't she?

Bet they would like to hang her up somewhere to shut her up.
