The nationwide riots over George Floyd’s death have gotten way out of hand and not just a protest. It’s one thing to protest, but to harm people and burn down business and rob and loot is not protesting. They are thugs of the highest order even though libs get mad when you call them that. I agree with Geraldo for once when he said last night on Sean Hannity’s show that many of these small businesses are immigrants who came here legally for a better life and made a successful business for themselves to be proud of and these people just burn their business down. They don’t care. They attacked the white house too and the Secret Service had to use tear gas against them. . More than 1,000 demonstrators massed along Pennsylvania Avenue, only dispersing after 3 a.m. when the Secret Service began to fire chemical agents.That shows you how ignorant they are. Trump condemned the cop right at the beginning and spoke with the family and praised them and these people attack the white house..They are thugs, savages, and animals in my book. When you destroy buildings and burning them down you are destroying the memory of George Floyd.
Protesters surrounded a police department Friday night chanting, “Prosecute the police!” That same mourning the officer responsible was charged with murder. How can you protest something when one of the things you’re asking for is being done. These protests are pure mindless anarchy.
Attorney Benjamin Crump, who is representing Floyd’s family, asked to take custody of Floyd’s body for an independent autopsy.
The doctor who will do the autopsy is Michael Baden, former chief medical examiner of New York City, who was hired to do an autopsy for Eric Garner, a black man who died in 2014 after New York police placed him in a chokehold and he pleaded that he could not breathe.
State and federal authorities also are investigating Floyd’s death.
Criminal charges filed Friday morning against the white officer who held his knee for nearly nine minutes on the neck of Floyd, a black man, did nothing to stem the anger. Derek Chauvin, 44, was charged with third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter
President Donald Trump said on Saturday that he believes leftist organizations such as Antifa are responsible for the widespread rioting and looting on Friday after the death of George Floyd.
“It’s ANTIFA and the Radical Left. Don’t lay the blame on others!” Trump wrote on Twitter. The president asserted that the violent protesters had nothing to do with protests of Floyd’s death after he was detained by police officers. “These are ‘Organized Groups’ that have nothing to do with George Floyd,” Trump wrote. “Sad!”
Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz announced Saturday he will activate the full National Guard to respond to the looting, rioting, and violence in Minneapolis after the city was overrun on Friday night.
Walz said officials will release identities of individuals involved in organizing the riots, whom he said were using the “dark web” to plan violence.
He also said the majority of violence is coming from individuals from outside the state.
“I think our best estimate right now that I heard is about 20 percent is what we think are Minnesotans, and about 80 percent are outside”:
Gov. Tim Walz activated more than a thousand national guardsmen early Saturday, promising a massive show of force to protect the city.
It wouldn’t surprise me one bit if George Soros was involved in this and paying off certain groups to start a race war in this country leading up to his New World Order planned for 2030.
This is a Communist uprising that is exploiting blacks to take the blame. This is all too well coordinated and has money behind it with people being bused in from out of state. Follow their paychecks and go after whomever (George Soros) is paying them to riot.
In cities across the United States, protesters angered over the killing of George Floyd faced off against heavily-armed officers, with some smashing police cars, ransacking businesses and setting fires that smoldered through the night.
Fears of another cycle of violence were palpable on Saturday as cities from Atlanta to Minneapolis grappled with the scope of the damage, and pleas for calm from elected officials and others seemed to do little to dampen the anger.
Protesters were seen vandalizing CNN’s logo outside its offices, breaking the building’s glass and entering the center. Protesters were also heard chanting anti-media rhetoric.
Naturally CNN’s Chris Cuomo took the liberal; side and justified the attacks on his station saying, that “CNN is not being victimized” by the attacks and “They’re attacking a lot of things that are going on. This isn’t about us. It’s about our ability to tell the story. That’s not going to change.
According to Breitbart, after airing a clip of Atlanta’s mayor discussing the riots, Cuomo stated, “CNN is here to tell the story. That’s what we do. CNN is not being victimized, alright? People are attacking the building. They’re attacking a lot of things that are going on. This isn’t about us. It’s about our ability to tell the story. That’s not going to change. There are different situations, different dynamics, in different cities. This is Atlanta. We showed you Minneapolis. It is reverberating in different spots around the country. Because what happened with George Floyd is not unfamiliar to communities, and let’s be honest, it’s not unfamiliar to you either.”
Here is a clever take-off on the Twilight Zone opening comparing it to the Minneapolis riots I saw: “You unlock this door with the key of….Lack of Imagination !! Beyond it,….. is a Leftist dimension:……….. A dimension of Loud Screaming,…… A dimension of Smacking people you disagree with,……….. A dimension of A Lost Propagandized Mind !!!
You’re moving into a land of both Mayhem Fires and Intolerance,……… with Crazy Progressive Things……….. and Lack of New Ideas…. You’ve just crossed over into… the Democrat Zone !!
“Liberal Faith” or “Progressive Faith”…… is the surrender of the mind….. it’s the surrender of reason,…… it’s the surrender of the only thing that makes us different from other mammals !
It’s their need to believe, and to surrender their skepticism and reason,…. Their yearning to discard that and put all their trust or faith in someone or something!
That’s how sinister these people are!
