Mayor Cheryl Selby cheers anti-police protesters but had a change of heart when they struck her home

A liberal mayor, who expressed public support for Black Lives Matter and leftist protesters calling to defund the police, quickly changed her tune when rioters targeted her own home.

The mayor of Olympia, Washington, Cheryl Selby, has been cheering the anti-police protests in the wake of George Floyd's death, who was killed in the custody of Minneapolis PD.

But when her own home was vandalized by BLM protesters, Mayor Selby blasted the attack as "domestic terrorism."

Selby made the comments after her home was vandalized on Friday with Black Lives Matter graffiti though she already displayed support for the movement.

"It's like domestic terrorism. It's unfair," she declared.

Ironically, Shelby had hung a leftist-friendly rainbow flag outside her home and placed a supportive "BLM" sign in her window before being targetted.

"I'm really trying to process this," the mayor told the Olympian Saturday.

The vandalism was a part of a protest that turned to rioting in downtown Olympia, according to The Blaze.

Businesses were vandalized with spray paint, flags were burned, and windows were smashed.

Then they marched into Selby's neighborhood.

Surveillance video shows one black-clad rioter, who appears to be white, spray-painting "BLM," "racist," and "abolish" on her home.

"It hurts when you're giving so much to your community," she said.

Selby and her family were not home, but her neighbors began texting her when the protesters arrived at her house.

Selby, who is white, had previously issued a statement in support of peaceful protests that criticized police for the May 25 death of George Floyd in Minneapolis.

"Every day since his murder, our country has shaken," she said.

"Convulsing between fear, rage, and nausea. We should feel sick.

"Those of us who hold the most microphones in our communities should feel nauseous.

"Let me be clear," she concluded, "the city of Olympia supports the peaceful protests that highlight the racial injustices black people continue to endure at the hands of police in the United States."
