Angry Texan Confronts Black Lives Matter Mob Blocking Traffic - WATCH
Frustrated motorist takes on BLM protesters blocking intersection
A Texas motorist has gone viral after a video of him confronting a Black Lives Matter mob appeared online.
Video shows the angry Texan confronting BLM protesters who were blocking a busy intersection.
In the footage that was uploaded to Twitter, a police officer appears to stand back and permit the protesters to block traffic from flowing through the intersection, prompting outrage from drivers.
The incident took place last Sunday, the Dallas Observer reported.
Protesters were blocking a busy intersection in Plano, Texas, causing traffic to back up for miles.
"Get the f*** out of my way!" the man screamed as he stormed over to the chanting mob.
"Where's the godd*** cop?" he yelled in disbelief.
He then found a cop standing by the intersection, who was seemingly allowing the protesters to block traffic.
"Get these f***ing people out of the way!" the man screamed at the cop.
"They can't be standing in the middle of the road!"
The protesters then swarmed the man as he squared up to fight.
One of the demonstrators, attorney Lee Merritt, attempted to intervene to de-escalate the situation, the Observer reported.
As tensions quickly rose, the officer escorted the angered motorist away from the protesters and back toward his car.
The video did not show the police officer clear protesters from the intersection.

According to the Dallas Observer, protesters were demonstrating after 26-year-old Marvin Scott III died while in police custody in March.
Seven of the eight police officers allegedly involved in Scott's death, which was ruled a homicide, were fired, while the eighth officer has since resigned.
Hava Johnston, who was involved in the protest, said demonstrators were making their way to a nearby Chick-fil-A when they crossed through the intersection and blocked traffic.
Johnston told the Observer the enraged motorist should have been arrested for his actions, claiming a black man would have been.
"The question is: Why wasn't that guy treated the same way that a person of color would have been treated?" she said.
The Plano Police Department has not publicly addressed the incident.
