Black Lives Matter Protesters Chant 'Death to America' in Kenosha - WATCH
Leftist mobs shout 'kill the police' and violent unrest continues in Wisconsin
As the violent unrest continues in Democrat-run Wisconsin, Black Lives Matter protesters were heard chanting "death to America" and "kill the police" while burning American flags on the streets of Kenosha this week.
Video shows BLM mobs shouting anti-American and anti-law enforcement slogans as they descended on the Kenosha County Courthouse during a Tuesday evening demonstration.
The protests were prompted by a police-involved shooting of a 29-year-old black man over the weekend, according to footage shared on social media.
Authorities were forced to erect a fence around the courthouse building to defend it from attack.

The National Guard was also deployed to the area in anticipation of further rioting in the city.
Photos posted to Twitter by Townhall reporter Julio Rosas show National Guardsmen protecting the courthouse behind a newly-erected fence.

Next, Rosas shared a video of a young woman shouting “Kill the police!” as she clutched an America flag.

Kenosha has been marred by violent unrest since police shot Jacob Blake several times in the back while responding to a domestic incident on Sunday.
Blake’s father told the Chicago Sun Times his son is paralyzed from the waist down; doctors don’t yet know if the condition is permanent.
Late Monday and early Tuesday, a group of rioters set fire to several Kenosha businesses and some looters made off with merchandise.
They set one fire at the Community Corrections Building and vandals targeted vehicles and street lights.
Kenosha is about 30 miles south of downtown Milwaukee.
Authorities arrested at least two people while investigating a fire at a library, officials said, and National Guard troops helped patrol the city Monday night.
Hundreds of protesters filled the streets of Kenosha some two hours past curfew.
Some tossed fireworks into a line of police officers at a courthouse, which drew smoke bombs and flash-bang grenades in response.
