Black Lives Matter activists tried to disrupt the Minnesota State Fair on Saturday and marched down the street, shouting a chant that called for the deaths of police officers: “Pigs in a blanket, fry ’em like bacon!”
The phrase “pigs in a blanket” refers to police officers in body bags and has been used overtly by a Black Lives Matter-influenced activist who murdered two police officers.
Video shows that, as the group happily chanted about murdering police officers, they had a police escort protecting their safety and First Amendment rights.

The chant is part of a pattern of Black Lives Matter taunting police after the deaths of police officers. As the Daily Mail reported at the time, the chant was used by Ferguson protestors following the excecution of two police officers by a killer who used the exact phrase “pigs in a blanket”:
Shocking video taken at a protest in St. Louis shows several demonstrators taunting police just hours after two NYPD officers were killed in an apparent “retribution” killing following the Michael Brown and Eric Garner grand jury decisions.
Bassem Masri has made headlines before for his protest tactics and Saturday he appeared to stay true to form in a video in which he chants at police, “Pigs in a blanket smell like bacon.”
Hours before, Ismaaiyl Brinsley shot and killed NYPD officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos after posting he’d soon be “putting pigs in a blanket.”
As Breitbart News has reported, the Black Lives Matter movement pays homage to cop killer Assata Shakur at every event.
