Sen. Lindsey Graham raises doubts
about Antifa's role in riots, looting

Original Article

Posted By: Ribicon, 6/2/2020 10:48:56 AM

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.”

Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain, says Reliable Lindz.

That has to be one of the most politically out of touch comments ever made. You need to be denying a lot of reality to think that...... why would that be?

Graham was McCain's poodle. Mc Cain was involved in Russian dossier even sending a staff member to England to pick it up. The Deep State has alot on Graham and his "all bark, no bite" behavior proves it again and again. There are too many Republicans that don't vote our values when it comes down to it.

In the 60s it was the SDS and the Weathermen who either went to prison, graduate school and got jobs filling youngsters' heads full of mush (or both). Bill Ayers, Bernadine Dohrn and Kathy Boudin being prime examples. It is common practice for subversives to change their labels when the old ones get rightly stigmatized, witness how "liberal" has become "progressive." Antifa is old wine in new bottles - anarchists under a new name.

It dawned on me last night that these riots ae so well organized they were obviously pre-planned, though they most likely were intended to be carried out much closer to the election. The Floyd killing launched them earlier tan planned, which is a miscalculation on their part as it provided a Trump with the opportunity to displayough n crime leadership and Dementia Joe to show what a weak spined ninny he is.

Cell phones weren't around in 1968 either, but do you not think they have been used to coordinate and direct these protests across the country? And, how quickly they all popped up too, huh? Some organized group seems to have been waiting for something like what happened in Minneapolis to use as the excuse to unleash chaos and discord across the country. I trust the TSA has the phone records, and the FBI has been combing the phones they found on the protesters for useful information. It was just about 4 years ago, a group was actively working to undermine a presidential election, the peaceful transfer of power, and later an actual president's administration. Read the House Intel committee transcripts which all clearly state there was ZERO Russian collusion, and that is from the same people who were claiming Trump was a Russian assets, Putin was pulling his strings, etc... None of them, under oath, came even close to finding Trump or anyone in his campaign, working with the Russians.

Adam Schiff led an investigation into Trump's collusion with the Russians when he KNEW it was a load of BS, but you know nothing of the kind when it comes to Antifa. You are going to be voted out, you dirty RINO.

Once you understand the larger objectives, everything becomes a sequence of predictable events. The term “community policing” has been used for several years by groups advocating for radical changes to law enforcement; however, behind the innocuous phrase is really a much more serious agenda. If each community can determine the enforcement of law, then essentially all communities can eliminate the underlying law itself. Remove local enforcement of law and the local community can independently assemble a social structure separate from all other binding contracts that frame a larger societal compact.
