After attending a protest last week in support of Black Lives Matter, Ellen noticed a key difference between that, and every other protest she’s attended.

“I’ve been to other protests. I’ve never seen police with machine guns [there],” she noted in her Instagram Story. “I’ve never seen the National Guard with machine guns. We’re at a march for black lives, and we’re here to talk about the fact that they matter. And there’s machine guns—big ones—and aggression.”

Ellen continued that that police presence was everywhere: “They’re on rooftops, they’re in cars, they’re in tanks, and I haven’t ever seen that show of force and that show—not that it’s as forceful as a lot that we’ve seen, but, I mean, we’re in the middle of the day here.”

“At other protests, I’ve never seen that amount of ammunition. So, I’m just wondering why that is: Why at the Women’s March there’s no machine guns. Why at Pride marches there’s no machine guns. But the Black Lives Matter march, machine guns everywhere. I don’t know. You tell me.”
