White supremacists surrounded the Houston, Texas NAACP chapter Sunday afternoon while holding a “white lives matter” banner, CW39 Houston reports.
The protesters said that they wanted to voice their concerns amid popularity of the black lives matter movement. They insisted that NAACP leaders and the organization denounce the movement, which they said is responsible for riots and violence in certain cities.
One protester was holding the sign 14 Words, which is a white supremacist slogan meaning, “We must secure the existence of our people and a future for white children.” It comes from the late white supremacist David Lane, who was a member of pro-white terrorist group called The Order.
Those that live in Houston’s 3rd Ward were shocked by the protest and uncomfortable with the use of the Confederate flag. Police were on the scene to prevent any violence but Twitter users still managed to mock the protesters with disgust.
'White lives matter' protest? Outside an NAACP office in Houston?! At least try 'poor white lives matter' & protest the Trumps of the world.

Why would "White Lives Matter" protesters choose Houston's NAACP? Because their goal is black lives not mattering. https://t.co/35kQNKtXoR

The View’s Whoopi Goldberg blasts Trump for waging war against Biden’s children: ‘I thought kids were off limits’
"The View's" Whoopi Goldberg has been trying not to say President Donald Trump's name for the past several years that he's been in office. But on Thursday she was so annoyed with the president she let his name slip out.
At issue was that Trump has decided instead of going after Vice President Joe Biden he's attacking Biden's children, who have no role in the campaign and won't work in the White House as Biden abides by nepotism laws.
The conversation began by the confusion the hosts had over undecided voters and how anyone could possibly be undecided at this point.
"When you listen to them, some of these people are having a hard time stomaching voting for the first time in their lives for a Democrat and they're looking for just enough to say, 'this is definitely the way to go,'" said Sara Haines. "I also can't relate to that because I decidedly know where my vote is going, but I think that's where they are. They need just a little to tip them over the edge."
