The riots are not about the police

Original Article

Posted By: Magnante, 5/30/2020 5:32:59 AM

Judging by extensive photo and video documentation from the scene, the looters and arsonists in Minnesota were up to one half white, largely of the (forgive the crude expression) "scrawny commie stoner" variety. The same is true with respect to the latest mayhem in Atlanta; New York; and Washington, D.C. These events have little in common with the race riots of the 1940s and 1960s. The majority of these young people, of all races, seem to be having a good time. (snip) What I am getting at is that the kids are going crazy.

My god, look what is happening. Riots in all the cities where there are liberal leadership. They are destroying everything that is in their path, very similar to locust invasion. Police/National Guard are doing nothing. They either leave or run. Most of these places, guns are not allowed or the city makes it almost impossible for you to own a gun. I would bet my last dollar, there would riot in my neighborhood. Remember, Pennsylvania we cling to our guns and bibles. What a devastation!!!! My bet this was paid for by George Soros....rent a thug.

I'm so glad I live where I do. My town's population is 70,000. We have about 20% immigrants, almost all of whom are hard workers. For the most part, people get along just fine and are too busy to burn up stuff and run riot. A lot of the immigrants have started restaurants, good ones, and they have been hit by our governor's edicts. I am doing my best to patronize local business. I would die if I had to live in one of those blue hell holes.

So the author contends that 1/2 of the Minneapolis looters were white? He must not have seen the same footage that I was watching.

When we have said the democrats will do anything to win this election, my goodness I had no idea that they would be willing to sacrifice their people, cities,and livelihoods to do it. Don’t tell me this is just an organic multi-city protest. There is organizational rioting at work here and I believe we know exactly who and what is behind it. Antifa and anarchist groups like it that are funded by America’s domestic enemies are having a field day. This is what they dreamed of and worked hard for. The video of the guy dressed all in black with a real gas mask on, carrying a black umbrella and a hammer and nonchalantly breaking every window in the Auto Zone while a protester was following and asking him why and to stop it. How many more sinister characters like that have been working within the mob to stir things up. Sadly, so many are willing to destroy their own communities when these agitators come in and validate their frustration, gin up hate and then we’re off to the races. While much of this is just thugs being thugs, you cannot discount the organizations that desire nothing more than complete chaos and anarchy. What better way to destroy this Presidency than continual violence, rioting and mayhem. These evil strategists know race is a way of driving a wedge between our people and they are determined to use it. If it takes our cities burning, so be it. Their ability to gain power and defeat this President is paramount and everything else is collateral damage. Look what they have been willing to do. They tried everything under the sun to destroy Donald Trump and so far, it has not worked. They took advantage, if not participated in the manipulation of this virus in order to destroy the economy. Now they have decided to finish us off with violence, rioting, and mayhem. These people are wicked. The stakes are as high as they ever will get. We are looking at cabal of conscienceless individuals who welcome the complete destruction of this country in order to halt the threat that the America First agenda poses to their new world order. Just when we honestly thought it could not get any worse, it has. If this destruction does not get under control, we are in a world of hurt. As a rioter said on television, we are coming for the suburbs next and that is when the violence will explode. My heart is heavy with worry because I now see just how evil the people are who perpetuate this, feed it, and fund it. The potential for civil war is more imminent than I ever thought possible. God help us, give our leaders wisdom and protect them from these angry mobs. If you pray, the time is now.

I noticed in the footage last night there seemed to be an inordinate number of young white girls with tank top shirts and their bra straps hanging out, running for every mob of color they saw. Maybe its exciting to them, to jump in the cage with the animals. No doubt at least some will regret it for the rest of their lives.

But hey! Our tough guy Governor extended our "stay at home" order another week!!! LOL!!! While thugs and criminals burn our cities down, this idiot is worried about normal citizens staying home? I didn't notice any arrests for rioters violating your order Governor? Our pathetic Governor and Mayors of Minneapolis and St Paul need to resign NOW!!! They are limp wristed soy boys who are hiding under their desk and pop out at 2:00 AM after everything has been torched and PLEAD with the citizens to please go home! Until I see these protestors put in jail for violating his order, it is null and void in my book! And I will sue him into next decade if he wants to arrest me!!!

In the 60s the riots and marches were not really about the peace movement, anti-war this or that, liberal or conservative. It was a selfish reaction to a possible inconvenience of having to do something to support your country. As soon as Nixon did away with the draft, the streets emptied. The profs, pols, and business leaders who came of age during this period remember what works and what doesn't in order to get their way and have taught their offspring well. Heck, I know a guy down the road who would be considered conservative and he dodged the draft and brags about it. So, the author is essentially correct. It's back to the "me" generation thing.

If the black communities were really behind these riots, they should be rioting against the Democrat run states and cities where this crap happens. Not to go off topic, but I hope the DOJ unit created under Obama to support and stage the Ferguson riots are not involved. I did see the Justice Brothers, Jesse and Rev. Al, are out there with Antifa and other communists. Minnesota is no greater example of decades of total Democrat rule where this racism exists and flourishes. The simple reason is that Democrats want black Americans as an underclass so they can claim they are the only ones who “care”. Because that is what liberals do - they “care” - which of course makes them better than everyone else, and they make sure to point that out, Blacks need to totally devastate the Democrats in November and see what happens under Republicans. The best proof is the Trump presidency. MAGA 2020.

I'm all for peaceful protest to bring attention to issues of concern to ensure justice for all Americans regardless of race, creed, color, education, financial status, even reading levels. However, due to the pervasive influence of progressive/liberal ideology, it is time to go absolutely Medieval on these rioters. The gentle hands-off style favored by most Dems for these young, idealistic pre-brained individuals, perpetually aggrieved races, and anarchist enabled soy-boys is not sustainable. Those of us old enough to remember the college protest in the 60's over the Vietnam war remember and as ugly as it was it took a couple of come to Jesus moments to get the message through their thick skulls. You won't see these demonstrations/riots in a red district, gov/police/sheriffs will not tolerate it. Plus citizens are armed and will defend their persons/property. Time for the blue side to man-up, grow a set and stamp this down now. There is only so much tolerance available before this grows to into martial law territory.

The gist of the article is 'the natives are restless' and poor old George was just an excuse to riot, burn and loot. Many of the natives had liquor bottles in their hands like it's some kind of tailgate or street party. Minneapolis is a free shopping zone with no push back by any authorities and all the dumb mayor cans say is, "wear your corona virus mask and practice social distancing". The article claims the youth were locked up for months now and ready to party in the streets 'big time'. Set my people free has a new meaning like 'burn this mother down' while in the process of looting.

Booker T. Washington said in his book My Larger Education, written in 1910 (and using the racial nomenclature of his time): There is another class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs—partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs.

I have said this elsewhere (and been lambasted on 'social' media). We didn't have these before the lockdown. People worked. With the work, came respect for business owners and the chance to meet them as humans/service providers. And with the lockdowns, the polizei had their 'orders'.... orders to stop thinking, using logic, and crack down.

The weak leftist and liberal Democrat politicians, especially in Minnesota now, but sure to be in other leftist and liberal Democrat run inner-cities in the days ahead, do not have the intestinal fortitude to swiftly overcome the violent rioters, who in a great part are their constituents who they depend on to get elected, with those Democrats now in full CYA (cover your ass) mode. Even fraudulently claiming that the riots are being orchestrated covertly by White Trump supporters, while actually the riots are being perpetrated by Black Ghetto dwelling looters, joined by factions of the so-called “Snowflake” generation, some of them just curious non-violent types, but also a good number of anarchists and very violent types who are trained and ready upon any pretext, like the death of George Floyd, to cause as much havoc in the inner-cities as they possibly get away with. What has not yet been recognized by the so-called mainstream (liberal) media is that there is a massive “Silent Majority” out there across the country watching those leftist and liberal Democrat politicians stumble around politicizing mass criminality, and that “Silent Majority” will make their statement on that in the General Election in November.

President Donald Trump tweeted that he was designating Antifa as a terrorist organization. That followed Trump and Attorney General William Barr earlier pointing to anti-fascist organizers and anarchists as culprits behind the mayhem following the death of a 46-year-old black man, George Floyd, at the hands of Minneapolis police. Others said right-wing extremists such as Boogaloo followers, who hope to bring about a second Civil War, were pushing for such uprising in the protests.
