The Minneapolis Disaster has
Democrat Fingerprints All Over It

Original Article

Posted By: Harlowe, 6/1/2020 2:14:18 AM

After leftist riots killed an African-American Federal Protective Service officer, caused severe injuries, destroyed businesses and vandalized churches and synagogues across Democrat cities, some difficult questions are being asked about what Democrat elected officials could have done to prevent this.(Snip) Despite these false claims by Democrat politicians, the riots were and are purely a Democrat product.(Snip)Trump didn’t create the atmosphere in Minneapolis, New York, Los Angeles, or any other blue city. Generations of Democrat mayors, as chronicled in John Perazzo's The New Shame of the Cities, fouled the civic air, tainted the cultural water, and have been happy enough to blame the riots on Republicans.

Comments:

Mr. Greenfield’s assessment rings clear and true, “...Democrats created the atmosphere...They spilled the gasoline, lit the match...” Democrats embraced Black Lives Matter and Antifa. City authorities and police force administrators in Minneapolis “are their people.” Rush Limbaugh has often referred to a Democrat playbook and Mr. Greenfield reiterates that observation writing, “...with the pandemic fading, they dug into their old playbook and decided that it was time for a new crisis...after locking down the country didn’t work, the Democrats decided to set it on fire instead.”

1) Demonrats are running up the bills in their corrupt cities in the hope that they'll get a big fat bloated check to bail them out courtesy of every single taxpayer in the U.S. 2) CV-19 was orchestrated by demonrats and China to reduce population and kill businesses, thus killing the economy - all to get a groundswell so PT is not elected. Look at who funded the lab - Fauci, the demonrat with our tax money; Gates, the demonrat, Soros, the demonrat and all his fellow demonrat minions courtesy of demonrat money handed to them as grants (the same way they give tax money to BLM and Antifa). 3) Demonrats purposely keep their states locked down to keep killing businesses and the economy for the same reason as 2).

Speaking of fingerprints, if we had a real FBI, which we don't, they would be building credit card trails of all of the travelers to the hot spots. The vermin have to buy gasoline or public transportation tickets to get there. Many have to sleep in motels. Search the records of all travelers from last week to the applicable cities and you will have a big list of suspects. Then check bank accounts and police records.

Mr. Greenfield's assessment that the Dems were using the office of Mpls Police Chief as one of their many displays of diversity, is spot-on. He refers to the current chief's predecessor, but does not mention that she was touted by the Dems as the first openly gay Mpls police chief.

Black persons are not under assault by whites, but obviously, this is a paranoia that has been nurtured by leftist politicis, by identity politics. Instead, we see people of both races starting to come together to oppose this outlaw behavior.

Antifa has been around for years. They are well funded along with BLM. These groups all started under the Obama Administration and became strong. The democrats cuddled these groups and this went on for some time. This did not happen overnight. Now the puppy grew up to be a vicious dog, we are going to have to treat them like we do Al-Qaeda. These animals should not get protection, need to be in Gitmo. I say utilize the Gitmo facility and send all of these animals that will serve time there. If this is true, that this is a democrat orchastrated event or action, my god what will they do next for power. When will the people of the U.S. stand up and say it's enough. This is very frightening that democrats would do this to us.

I no longer go to Drudge Report but Pro Trump News. They have an article (Strange Connections Surround The Death of George Floyd) about George Floyd and the police officer knowing each other. After reading the article, it makes me realize how deep the "Deep State" is and wonder how many Presidents have been aware of all of this. The fact that Nancy Pelosi won't speak out against these violent riots and protestors says it all for me.

So, rioting and looting is actually a good form of protest, according some of Minnesota's leaders, and their children. And apparently the citizens like it, too. Who knew!

When this is over what will be left? Burned up neighborhoods, massive property damage, more dead. Nothing will have been gained and much lost. Those that were peaceful or just stayed home will be asked to pay for it. The country was unified in their horror of what happened to George Floyd. His name is now barely mentioned by the media. The Democrats spent decades trying to create this. As a result, Trump will be re-elected.

Aside from the obvious action of black thugs, black-dressed white punks and black and white oppoortunists (sorry, enemedia, our lying eyes can't unsee what your cameras showed us), the other obvious element here is the ineptness AND the complicity of the Democrat Governors and Mayors. They clearly and irrefutably have ordered their cops to initially stand down, and even now, just stand around and incredibly ALLOW these looters to burn and loot their blue cities. Hey, it's "reparations" on steroids. By policy, not accident. "Black stimulus." Black Friday...every day until they get enough big screen TVs, Air Jordans, and new clothes for their baby-mamas to act semi-civilized again. For a while. NO NATIONAL BAILOUT for these states and cities!

#6, not just Pelosi but every single demonrat in any position of leadership or power. Not one of them on any level has condemned the violence. Violence is exactly what they want. See Freddy Grey, Michael Brown, Trayvon Martin, etc, etc, etc. For me, the most insane thing about this is that they believe that this is going to actually help them. And the thugs on the streets who are inflicting all of the damage also believe that. I’m with #9 - no bailouts! They created these beds, let them lie in them or rebuild them with their own sweat and money.

Of course, this has the dims fingerprints all over it. And thanks to the Soros-funded hate organizations who financed it. And all this because the dims and msm still can't get over the outcome of the 2016 Presidential Election. Put this rioting on top of the pre-planned pandemic and you have a real temper tantrum, right dims and msm?

Thanks ARK. This whole thing makes absolutely no sense at all. Eight minutes of Chauvin knowing that he was being filmed, obviously wanting to be filmed with his knee holding down Floyd? For eight minutes, knowing he's being filmed the whole time? And now the biggest result is that America is on fire (not here in Oklahoma cattle country) sure would focus attention away from on why a bunch of cops and EMT people watched Chauvin kill Floyd and purposely did absolutely nothing about it. I don't believe racism is why but with the Chicom virus disaster on our country and the world, the nation will believe anything and roll over and soil itself for anything and for any reason. Like the Chicom virus, we're being played with this Floyd murder and whatever the play, we're falling for it again exactly on cue.

Now that Antifa is a terrorist organization: Admit we are in an internal war and accept that Antifa is an enemy. Round up and isolate all the terrorist leaders. Roosevelt interred all the Japanese and put them in camps out of harms way. Cut off the head of the snake. Cut off all of Soros's funding mechanisms. Jail all the local government officials who aided the Antifa movement and sort it out later with no legal push back against military. Cut off all anti American communications. We do not need another Tokyo Rose on American networks. Let peaceful demonstrations happen according to enforced local laws. Hold serious meetings with the demonstrators without Antifa.

The leftist and liberal Democrats speak with forked tongue, and covertly support the riots that are being carried out by their largest identity based political constituency group, the inner city Black population. The leftist and liberal Democrats will never speak out about the criminal acts of that Democrat constituency group, and will always try to change the focus on some isolated abuse of authority by local police as a pretext, because the Democrats must rely on their Black identity based constituency to keep them in political power in the inner cities. Those facts should not even be considered to be controversial because they are a fact of life in the inner cities. Since those leftist and liberal Democrat advocacy groups want the local police departments to be abolished, so obviously the answer should be for local leftist and liberal Democrat politicians to set up procedures addressing situations when anyone in a Black community calls 911, instead of sending armed police to sort out the incident, in the spirit of community service, not policing, Democrat sanctioned community social workers should be sent to the incident scene, to calm the perpetrators and victims, and after that, if the community social workers find it necessary, the social workers should then call for a rescue squad, ambulance or the coroner as the social workers deem necessary. Once that becomes the system there will not be any reason for armed police to confront violent Black criminals in those “communities” because the community social workers will have calmed the immediate situation down. Then the armed police can go about their business serving and protecting other communities that appreciate their presence, and those Black “communities” can live happily and peacefully ever after, until a future pretext arises for more violent riots that can be perpetrated and designed to burn down, loot, and generally destroy the grocery stores and other critical businesses that have served those low income and minority communities. Anyone see anything wrong with those proposed social changes?

As a clueless leftist college student in the late 60s, I once sat in with some very hard-core radicals at a big meeting in Chicago. I was basically a peaceful anti-Viet Nam protester type (I know. I'm sorry) and I was shocked by how seriously many young radicals in the meeting were about creating a violent "revolution in the belly of the dragon". Those same radicals went on to take over the Democrat party, as well as our educational system and news media. Make no mistake, this current mess has long been planned and the "revolution" has begun. As others noted, the initial goal is to force Trump to use force to suppress the violence. They have exact plans in place for what happens after that. I worry deeply about my granddaughter's future.

Yes, seeing the virus did not work they rolled out prefabricated ANTIFA and BLM racial riots. If this rubs us the wrong way they will come up with something else (tank the stock Market?). These are devious professional community terrorists. Downtown Minneapolis will not recover for decades. Enjoy your “communities” and social workers. In Santa Monica and Los Angeles ANTIFA directed them the nicest areas. Sad part is that most were just reopening after 3 months of unnecessary lockdown by Fauci and Birx. They even looted Gucci in Rodeo Drive. What they really, really like like are sneakers. Ironically, went after Nike stores in particular. These organized racial riots set our country back. Vote straight Republican ticket, if the cultural Marxists win on November 3 our future is Anarchy. In 1992, sadly, the Rodney King racial riots elected Bill Clinton. MAGA again. Trump 2020. Last night, just to show the Others, we donated to Donaldjtrump again.

This is a fine article about how we can connect the dots and see how things evolved in Minnesota to bring that state to the point where they are today. We can see that things just don't happen in a vacuum. Read a great article today on The Vortex, "Trump and the TechTyrants", which explains the difference between social media sites being considered a Platform or a Publisher. If it's a platform, it's just a place where you submit material, and if it is accepted, the media site cannot be sued because they do not make judgments about the submission by choosing to censor it. If the site behaves like a publisher, then it could have its own journalistic philosophy and choose to censor or edit what is offered dependent upon that philosophy. They are behaving like publishers who make editorial decisions on whether they edit or censor the material. and so they can be sued. I hope people can read the article because it says it all and I am afraid that my interpretation is incomplete. These techtyrants are running all over us, so it is important that we do the best we can to understand how it happens. As you can read in the article, Trump's action last week proved, once again, that he understands the problem and is trying to correct it. And how can Twitter have the right to promote these cattle calls for anarchists to travel around the country and destroy people's lives and property? Is that legal? Just because these techtyrants are billionaires does not give them the right to take away people's rights.

Donald Trump just gave one of the strongest speeches of his career. He promised to protect peaceful protesters and to seek justice for George Floyd, but demanded that Governors deploy the National Guard to stop the rioting, looting, and destruction of neighborhoods. Trump said that if Governors did not act, he would invoke his federal authority to send in the National Guard and other military assets. He didn’t indicate which authority he was invoking, but contrary to popular belief, a president has fairly wide power to put down an insurrection. I’ll post the transcript as soon as I can find it.

A shift to mail voting is increasing the chances that Americans will not know the winner of November’s presidential race on election night, a scenario that is fueling worries about whether President Donald Trump will use the delay to sow doubts about the results. State election officials in some key battleground states have recently warned that it may take days to count what they expect will be a surge of ballots sent by mail out of concern for safety amid the pandemic. In an election as close as 2016's, a delayed tally in key states could keep news organizations from calling a winner.

In an address made from the Rose Garden on Monday, Trump described the violent protests as “domestic acts of terror” that law enforcement must “dominate the streets” in order to quell. “If a city or state refuses to take the actions necessary to defend the life and property of their residents, then I will deploy the United States military and quickly solve the problem for them,” Trump said.

Sen. Lindsey Graham raises doubts

Sen. Lindsey Graham on Tuesday questioned how much blame should be directed at Antifa for the violent protests and looting in the wake of George Floyd’s death in police custody. Mr. Graham, who chairs the Senate Judiciary Committee, said Antifa has played “a part” in the civil unrest. 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.”
