Tens of thousands of people took to the streets across the country to protest the death of George Floyd, a black man who died on May 25 in Minneapolis after a white police officer pressed a knee into his neck. Many demonstrations have started off peaceful but turned violent, leading to nearly 1,700 arrests in 17 U.S. cities and sparking heated debates among partisan pundits, who blame the other side for the chaos. Who are these protesters, and what are their agendas? Here's what we know so far: Peaceful demonstrators The overwhelming majority of those at this weekend's protests are

Comments:

So all the leftist rioters are just 'undisciplined'. In the meantime the media keeps looking for those white nationalists who must have been hiding behind the grassy knoll.

"white nationalists"....I don't believe it for even an instant. Totally a figment of these extreme anarcho-leftist's literally demented fantasies. Let the people see what their "elected leaders" do to protect them. And see how they vote next time. Normal people do NOT like this stuff and they want to elect someone who says "we won't let this happen again". That isn't going to be your "good old" Dem-Farm-Labor Party hacks, THEY are the ones letting this happen and their kids are egging them on.

Didn't the coroner rule that George Floyd's cause of death was not due to asphyxiation or strangulation? The media is still struggling how to shape the narrative that Floyd bore no responsibility in the events that led to his death.

Don't let burning buildings and looted stores interfere with your little Leftist fantasy world where noble, peaceful protesters are standing up to white supremacists. Just keep on denying the obvious and conjuring up lies. And don't forget to blame it all on Trump.

They have yet to produce ONE actual white whatever they want to call them. We can see who it is with our own eyes, who these instigators are. Violent, angry scrawny white boys in black from head to toe and that is Antifa funded by George Soros! The media have been given their narrative by the Dems and they follow orders like the good lap dogs they are. And they whine that we don't trust them.

They may have overreached themselves because as of about 9:23am today, Trump designated Antifa as a terrorist organization. They have no clue what is going to land on them now. No Clue.

The overwhelming majority of those at this weekend's protests are racially diverse, peaceful demonstrators calling for change, law enforcement officials told ABC News. If that's what Law Enforcement thinks, they're even more stupid and corrupt than I could imagine.

Am tired of reading and hearing about the anger the rioters have. Most of them were having the time of their lives. Lots of fun to loot, destroy, etc. when you can get away with it. The Friday night Follies were telecast in Atlanta for all of us to watch. When the first thug started smashing windows and setting cars on fire the Atlanta police just stood there like department store dummies. The message was clear. No arrests. No attempt to stop or even slow you down. So we got a night of wilding.

The traditional Marxist strategy for "revolution" is to use mob violence to provoke police reactions which the Marxists will claim represent police brutality and repression that prove how evil the police are. They then use that myth to justify more and more extreme violence which necessarily evokes more stern measures until you have essentially a war against violent, self-righteous guerrillas, who are setting off bombs and killing police. I believe the Marxists who have planned this may be making their move against Trump and the Republic. Once Trump sends in troops, aided by our inane MSM, they will shift all focus and all blame towards the "racist, fascist" Trump in one more attempt to destroy him and our Republic. This is the reality of what is happening before our eyes.

Yeah, the majority of the FBI is honest too. I could not imagine traveling someplace to protest something this lame. The man is dead. Send the cop to jail for life if it placates the animals but I'm afraid that's too late. They could have tied the cop to a pole and let the mob have him. The violence would have been over in ten minutes. Eight minutes of knee-on-neck does not have to be deliberated in a courtroom.

Isn't it convenient that most of the country has been locked in their homes with temperatures rising and tempers wearing thin, bearing a rapidfire series of arbitrary, irrational, changing restrictions, many of them having been fired or furloughed... combining much of the membership of BLM and Occupy into a pressure cooker of sorts. Somebody ignites that bomb with another police killing... Presto! A made-to-order summer of riots to mold the masses to get rid of Trump in the fall. This may all have just been the coincidental assembly of a perfect storm. It's hard to be certain. But it does seem clear to be the very thing the Left needed, and when they needed it. IF somebody HAD intended to get this, they could hardly have devised a more systematic way to bring it about. So if it is deliberate, it's calculated and brilliant evil. If it is not deliberate, it's downright serendipitous. Either way, pray for God's help to heal this. Because humans have so screwed up things here that only divine mercy could possibly fix them at this point.

These thugs are professional activists ( that's what they like to be called). They are schooled and funded by the radical left...aka, George Soros and his many organizations disguised as benevolent. Their goal is cause disruption to our way of life. They could care less about George Floyd. When the word goes out to organize a protest, the activists jump into action. Back in 2000 I saw an ad in a small California publication distributed in a coffee shops around a popular college area. Since I always enjoy browsing local news I picked up one of these junk newspapers. I want to see if anything has changed since I was in college in the 60's. Nothing has changed, it's gotten worse with social media. n the classified section of the paper they run ads recruiting to become a professional activist or community organizer (agitator like Obama.) They send you to a boot camp, all expenses paid. Usually in the mountains somewhere. Many college students fall prey to this and join, especially over the Summer break. This has been going on for decades. Many that join are living on the edge and have come from a disadvantage family environment. They are seeking out to be accepted and meeting like minded disenchants that blame everything on the government. They call each other sister and brother. Many of them don't go to the college and hang out in those areas. They are vulnerable and malleable. It's a sad story and it's real. Soros has done more damage to this country than Satan himself. He hates the United States and everything we stand for and should be stripped of his citizenship. Those who he gives money to like Hillary, Obama, etc. think he walks on water....quid pro quo is part of the official language in DC. These thug/activists are bad hombres as President Trump would say, and we must protect our country from them. Don't trust the Dems to ever do anything about it. It will have to come from the right. Who will be the one to do it? We have several good reps in the House and a couple of good senators. The one who takes the lead on this will be applauded. Of course the leftist media will be called racist. That's when this person should attack those race-baiting mongers with all he or she has ( Candace Owens comes to mind).

A black Federal Protection officer at the Oakland Federal building was killed Saturday when "peaceful protestors" pulled up and sprayed the front of the building with an automatic weapon. Assuming he was a Federal law enforcement officer, I assume that unlike George Floyd he has never been in prison. Please tell me how this man's life is less valuable than Mr. Floyd's. He was at work doing his job and likely was killed by black on black crime, which I assume is why the leftists feel his life is less valuable. Blacks in America need to dump the Democrat party which runs the big cities and has set the tone for they way blacks are treated in big cities. Time for a change!

Many throughout the country agree with the sincere protestors about this tragedy. Their point has already been made. But now it is time for law abiding protestors to be aware of what these nightly gatherings have turned into and so, stop participating. The crowds are now actually providing cover for the anarchists who have conceiled themselves among them.

The so-called mainstream (liberal) media should find, interview, and show the nation all the supposed White Nationalists and White Supremacists (code for Trump supporters) who are at the locations of the criminal rioting goading all the “poor Black folks” to criminally riot, burn down, loot, and generally destroy most all of the commercial businesses that used to serve the nearby low income and minority “communities”. Until the media does that, anyone with any common sense should regard such unsupported media reports as politically based “fake news”

#15 I agree with you. I think that all these groups had a plan in place for immediate demonstrations and riots if some event were to happen that the leaders could trigger a reaction like this. They probably have other things planned to make the country seem as chaotic as possible, in hopes to beat Donald Trump in Nov. I don't believe the white nationalist theory. I do think we need to hear from the President, perhaps tonight or tomorrow AM.

Yesterday on another site I saw copies of two agreements these 'protesters' sign, stating the lengths they WILL go to to disrupt our lives. I also heard someone was providing them with pallets of bricks. Also, saw that one of the 'leaders' said there would be people wearing yellow vests to guide the protesters to a safe place if things turned rocky for them. They know exactly where to go, and what to do when they get there. How long can our country endure them. I'm waiting for PDJT to kick butt and take names. If the national guard should put some rubber bullets or bullets of another kind in their guns, bet it wouldn't take too many shots fired before they would re-think what they were doing. This is the first time LE has even done a little push back on them after all these years.

Even RT knows better: "Advocacy groups and media outlets that continually fall for this nonsense devalue themselves. By trying to convince the general public that the OK hand gesture or Pepe the Frog or now the word boogaloo are serious codes in legitimately dangerous fringe movements, these organizations give rise to more troll movements and prove how utterly inept they are at keeping up with modern culture.

Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms and U.S. Representative Val Demings of Florida have risen in prominence amid protests against police brutality as Joe Biden weighs whether to choose a black woman as his Democratic running mate for November's presidential election. Activists say such a pick would excite disenchanted African-American voters and demonstrate to a crucial part of the Democratic base that Biden is committed to criminal justice reform following the death of George Floyd, who was black, in Minneapolis last week at the hands of a white police officer.

In politics your friends are more trouble than your enemies. Joe Biden is experiencing this phenomenon right now. Even though Democratic voters and interests detest President Trump to an unprecedented degree, the squabbling factions of their coalition continue to impose demands on Biden and parse every word, making sure he doesn’t violate ideological norms and sensibilities — potentially costing him the presidency. America’s two-party system forces candidates for president to cobble together a big coalition of interests and demographics that sit uncomfortably under a big tent. The result is competing demands and constant jockeying for influence. These interests often lose

But the South Carolina Republican noted that rioting and looting happened during protests long before the militant anti-fascist group became a movement. “We will try to find out how organized this violence is,” Mr. Graham said. “But I am old enough to remember 1968, and Antifa was not around in 1968, that I know of.”
