National Guard called out to
Kenosha as protesters wreck
largely black neighborhood

The National Guard was called in to quell fiery riots in Kenosha, Wisconsin—as protesters defied a curfew to loot and destroy a mostly black business area they are supposedly trying to defend following the police shooting of a local black man. Democratic Gov. Tony Evers summoned 125 members of the National Guard Monday after protesters set cars on fire, smashed windows and clashed with officers in riot gear Sunday after the shooting of Jacob Blake. But that and a dusk-to-dawn curfew did not stop the city from exploding once again on Monday night—with blazes set near the scene of Blake’s shooting

Comments:

Peaceful Marxist Demonstrators show us the exciting future in store for us once the Democrat Socialists assume full control. Will this play in Peoria? Or is the TV programming effective enough that soccer moms and soyboys think this is all about racial injustice?

Arsonists should be shot. It is unbelievable that not a single rioter has been shot, as far as I can tell from the news. If there is no forceful opposition to them, they will destroy, just like any other violent criminals.

Arsonists set a bunch of fires last night, and supposedly one of the fires is an apartment complex that trapped several families inside the flames. May those arsonists roast in Satan's presence for all eternity if this is true. Kenosha is going to be known as a horrible black mark on the democrat party if history is anywhere close to honest.

Here again we see ignorant Black rioters burning out, looting, and generally destroying commercial business areas including very critical drug and grocery stores that serve their own “communities”. That brings back an old memory of when I joined the Army over 60 years ago. One of the first things we were told was to never poop in our mess kits, and that is essentially what those Black rioters did in Kenosha, WI, as by wiping out those businesses they put their own “communities” in a bind to no good end. In a short while, after the smoke clears, local leftist and liberal Democrats will be out their complaining about those minority “communities” being “Food Deserts” and fraudulently blaming President Trump!

#6. I believe it was BLM rioters from outside Kenosha. Still, it was the Black neighborhoods that suffered. But, that is okay with BLM.

FTA: The fires, which destroyed much of the city’s black business district, were mostly set by white protesters, local resident Porche Bennett, 31, told Reuters. The clips I saw on the local news last night showed mostly young white thugs. They might live in or near Kenosha but I highly doubt it was their neighborhood they were destroying.

Kenosha, Wis.—A man was injured after attempting to protect a Kenosha mattress store before it burned down during violent protests Monday night, Aug. 24, a day after the police shooting of Jacob Blake. The man in his 70s was hurt while trying to stop people from burning the building down, but fire leveled the building and the longtime owners are angry and emotional. Pamela Moniz and her husband, Keith McCoy, watched as the building burned. "Is there words for it?" asked Keith. "The picture should say it all."

Here’s a shocking number: Democratic presidential candidates have received an average of nearly 90% of the Black vote for more than five decades. But why? Many Blacks live in big cities run by Democrats, and conditions there are pretty awful. What’s more, once Democrats get into the White House, they don’t deliver for the Black community. During the campaign, the candidates promise they’ll do a lot. Then when they win, they don’t. Every. Single. Time. And yet election after election, Blacks turn out in droves to support the Democratic candidate. It’s not like Republicans haven’t been trying to woo them.

It is sometimes underappreciated how new professional sports is as a dominant cultural phenomenon. For the vast majority of human history, sports has been overwhelmingly played by amateurs. And even in America, it is only in the past fifty years that this professionalized version of sport became a route to wealth. Baseball, which has the longest professional sports history in the United States, illustrates this: the average MLB salary is up an inflation-adjusted 3,000 percent since the late 1960s. Professional sports only became big money in the era of television, as a form of mass entertainment

Deciding to go Colin Kaepernick one better, the NBA's Milwaukee Bucks players decided to cancel their playoff game to protest the Kenosha, Wisconsin police shooting of Jacob Blake, a career criminal with a warrant out for 3rd degree sexual assault, who was resisting arrest. That act triggered racial grievance riots, along with lootings, destruction, and a likely permanent decline for Kenosha, as usually happens in riot-torn cities. But the NBA didn't want to leave it alone and let justice take its course. Someone in the locker room of the Bucks suggested a game strike, and then the rest of them, lemmings-like, jumped onboard.
