Last night offered a warp speed example of mob violence triggered by utterly bogus charges of police misbehavior resulting in the sack of the premier shopping district of a major American city. (snip) Three was no doubt that police were blameless, but that did not stop bystanders from immediately castigating the police with the same sort of bogus claims that led to mob violence in Ferguson, MO and elsewhere, even as they attended to the bleeding corpse of the suicided perp.The mob began pillaging stores along the Nicollet Mall, the Minneapolis version of Chicago’s Magnificent Mile or New York’s Fifth Avenue.

Minneapolis- do you see what happens when your Mayor and Governor allow ‘peaceful protesters’ in your city? This is a Democrat run and approved method for behavior change- keep voting for violence.. defund police- There will be nothing left of Minneapolis- a formerly wonderful city.

The Minneapolis I grew up in was populated primarily by Swedes, Norwegians, Danes and some Finns. These articles never state any demographic info on who is looting. My money is on the Finns.

My guess the looters are primarily made up of Reformed Amish. Sort of like regular traditional Amish, but who now follow the Gangsta/Thug credo of weed, whites and wine. They be cool with their beard and black clothes and back packs. Now they packin and they just lookin for a sign. Just show em a sign. Apologies to Lowell George, Little Feat

Look, the only thing that will make blacks happy is to never be held to a standard or responsible for their actions. In their minds, the police killed this guy by trying to arrest him and making him shoot himself. In their minds, he nor any other black should ever be arrested again. Do you see how f$#@ed up that is? We cannot go forward as a nation with people among us who think this is okay. And corporations, Hollywood and sports teams are sanctioning this behavior.

Posted this earlier about Kenosa, but evidently, it fits here, as well.... Black thugs like this are right. By "resisting arrest" these days, they take momentum away from the police and put themselves in control. The consequences of whatever happens next -- their own deaths, included -- are entirely up to them, but the blame will be on the police! Ah, the twisted logic of our times.

Let's see BLM, Democrats, and the liberal media spins this mob riot and looting as another example of peaceful protesters and police violence. A suspected murderer kills himself and the mob blames police. They feel the need to riot, loot, and destroy. They rage like uncivilized savages with their ubridled hatred and urge to destroy over something, anything, that they perceive as "against them". They are reinforcing every negative stereotype that people are quickly coming to believe about young black people!

It should be obvious to everyone now. George Floyd and the other dimwitted victims have no connection to the rioting other than to provide a catalyst. Millions of people in this country have been duped into believing that the blacks and Antifa have some other motivation other than pure evil and the love of rioting, looting, murder and mayhem. The BLM appeasers hould be feeling really stupid for giving their money to a bunch of criminals.

In recent weeks, not only have we seen some very large holes punched in the narrative of what happened to George Floyd, but we’ve also seen the very thin veil come off, as the “peaceful protests” by Black Lives Matter and Antifa rapidly devolved into perhaps the worst string of violent riots the country has ever seen.

What planet does Joe Biden live on? In his campaign for president, he's promised more lockdowns if the "experts" tell him to do it, maybe permanent lockdown, lockdown as a lifestyle, which means shutting down the entire country. It's bizarre stuff given that it's already been done, with plenty of unintended consequences. It's a supposed leadership redo of President Trump's supposedly bad leadership on COVID. This, according to Joe, is how one really does it, so rewind the reel to March 2020 and let him start the lockdowns from there as if nothing had at all changed (snip) the call of someone still living in March 2020, embedded in amber

The news made for splashy headlines, but story behind the charges was more mundane. Brian Kolfage, a triple amputee veteran and Purple Heart recipient, used a crowdfunding website as part of a political gag aimed at raising $1 billion dollars to construct a U.S.-Mexico border wall. After unexpectedly raising $17 million dollars within the first week, Kolfage decided to hand off the suddenly real and ambitious initiative to someone with more experience, connections, and resources.

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

Biden, the two-term vice president, listed Arizona, Minnesota, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin as likely destinations during a fundraiser hosted by the Illinois Trial Lawyers Association.
