Bat-wielding Michigan grandma tries to block George Floyd protesters


A bat-wielding 75-year-old Michigan granny faced off this week against George Floyd protesters, blocking them from marching down a street in her affluent neighborhood, dramatic footage shows. In the tense video, Karla Anderson waves the slugger at a crowd of dozens of demonstrators in East Grand Rapids on Wednesday — before one of them grabs the bat, and another tries to restrain her, according to NBC affiliate WOOD TV. “I’m gonna protect my property. You have no right to riot!” she can be heard hollering at protesters. Anderson later told the local station — which dubbed her a “bat-brandishing grandma” — that she was simply trying to protect her home turf from possible vandals and looters. “I just simply stated, you know, ‘You’re not going to burn down East [Grand Rapids],’” she declared, adding she believed the far-left militant group Antifa was involved in the protest. “This is not about Black Lives Matter, this is about racial division.”
