Left Tries to Blame Riots on White Supremacists

2020 May 30

It’s hard to believe that white supremacists were so plentiful or powerful, but Minnesota claim they are the ones behind the protests and riots that have turned destructive and violent.

Prosecutor Calls For Patience in George Floyd Investigation ...

Rioting in Minneapolis

In an afternoon news conference, Minnesota officials asked residents to forgo protests and stay home after 8 p.m. Saturday night so that law enforcement could “remove those folks who are harming us.” Community and faith leaders – including reverends, rabbis, imams and representatives of the state’s Latino, Asian, and Native American communities, as well as the uncle of Philando Castile – encouraged residents to observe the curfew.

“We need to create the space for people to be able to grieve, to come together, to mourn the loss of George Floyd,” Lt. Gov. Peggy Flanagan said in an afternoon news conference. “We cannot do that until community can gather safely … Stay home tonight so that we can remove those folks who are harming us.”

Flanagan said that some of the protesters were “detractors,” “white supremacists” and “anarchists.”

“They are not from our state, and they’re coming from the outside,” and Sen. Amy Klobuchar. “We cannot move forward when people are burning down our city.”

It’s important to keep in mind that Minnesota’s FDL (Farmers-Democratic-Labor) Party is one of the farthest left Democratic state parties in the US and has long been so. Former Congressman Keith Ellison, a racist Muslim, is the state’s attorney general and heads the state’s law enforcement.

One of Ellison’s puppets was even more outspoken.

During a Saturday press conference, Commissioner of the Minnesota Department of Public Safety John Harrington said the state is analyzing information about those arrested during the violent riots in Minneapolis in reaction to George Floyd’s death, speculating they may be related to white supremacists.

“We have seen things like white supremacist organizers who have posted things on platforms about coming to Minnesota. We are checking to see do the folks that we have made arrests on and that we have information, are they connected to those platforms,” Harrington said. “We have seen flyers about protests where folks have talked about they’re going to get their ‘loot on’ tonight.”

Harrington said authorities are monitoring to determine if there are organized criminal attempts to incite violence in the middle of protests. Minnesota mayors Melvin Carter and Jacob Frey also noted to reporters on Saturday that those arrested in Friday’s riots were either not residents of the cities or state.

Notice that none of the Minnesota state officials Antifa, militant black groups or other left-wing organizations.  No doubt there is outside influence, but as US Attorney General Barr states, it’s likely Antifa and other left-wing extremists.

Well, Mr, Harrington, if you have evidence, please release it.

Clean-up in Denver after George Floyd protests

Once again, the left tries to shift the blame. By tomorrow, it will be the President’s fault.

Does anyone with an IQ over 50 actually believe that white supremacists have the power and the means to orchestrate protests in more than 50 cities across the US and turn peaceful protests into violent, destructive riots?

    Dems tried the “wrap-up smear” the old fashion way, through MSM with the shooting of Ahmaud Arbery few weeks ago.
    Since no one listens to MSM anymore, it didn’t stick.
    So they went high tech and used Twitter for George Floyd.
    This one worked, or so they think.

    And blaming white supremacists for engaging in the violence.

    I had an “interesting” discussion on Facebook last night with a woman who called for “Abolishing the police!” (since the band, the ‘Police’, broke up long ago I assumed she meant “law enforcement”).

    Why would someone call for “abolishing the police”? I was stumped until I realized she must live in Shangri-La. WOW! No crime of any kind, no violence, no drunk driving, no domestic abuse…heck, people don’t even spit on the sidewalk in Shangri-La.

    I did not ask her to disclose the location of Shangri-La…it must remain a secret else everyone would move there!!

    Sadly, those of us who do not live in Shangri-La must accept law enforcement as a necessary function…though there be bad cops amidst the good ones.

    I wonder if people live forever in Shangri-La…like in the movie??? I’ll have to ask her.

    24,

    As much as I recognize the need for law enforcement functions, I seriously doubt its proper operation under the current scheme of things. Sovereign Immunity is a shield that that all hide behind. It needs to be abolished. LEO’s need to carry personal liability insurance just as any doctor. (whether the muni pays for it or not is optional.) Many PDs should be privatized, taken out of the hands of government. Those communities that have done so have seen a marked improvement in operations.

    We still lives in SoCal when the Rodney King riots happened…and watched as whole sections of Los Angeles were destroyed. A couple years later, just before we escaped from SoCal, I had occaision to drive through one section…and I was amazed that it was still destroyed. Then almost ten years later on one visit down there I drove back through that same area…and with the exception of one or two stores it was STILL destroyed. And the couple stores that had returned looked like maximum-security prisons.

    Post-Rodney King LA reminds me of a tour of East Berlin I had in the early 1980s. We had a guide (very nice woman) and the bus followed the official tour route. Everything along the route was rebuilt, nice and clean. But, if you looked hard enough, you would see bombed-out buildings from 40 years previous that still hadn’t been rebuilt.

    CNN is loving this as it not only improves ratings, but gives the network an opportunity to propagandize. Interviewees are selected because they will tell the narrative CNN wants viewers to hear.

    It almost makes up for the surge in deaths in reopened states people like Brian Stelter an d Don Lemon were hoping for that hasn’t materialized.

    It will be interesting to see if there is a dramatic rise in coronavirus cases in cities with major protests. My guess is there won’t be. If so, it will show what a farce the lockdown has been.

    But all the deaths! Well ok, but 1) most of the chinese are 1 generation removed from 3rd world country status. Most of them had compromised immune systems from the start. 2) What the hell do the communists care about deaths? Mao killed some 80m during his reign. What’s a few more if it will crater the Western economic system.

    Good info here to pass on:

    https://www.targetliberty.com/2020/05/government-police-protests-and-violence.html#comment-form

    “I talked yesterday to a gold dealer who was reboarding his store. He told me that his store was attacked last night and that it was by all whites dressed in black.

    After he told me that, I showed him something. He looked at it and was shocked.

    His question to me was: “How did you get that?”

    Unfortunately, I can’t publish what I have (It would blow my sources cover and put his life in danger) but, let me just say this, I am confident it is lefty anarchists that are doing the damage.

    That said, it is not difficult to spot these guys. I mean, it was a black protest, there are some older white lefties in the crowd and some white college kids but they are taunting police. They are not around buildings that have been broken into and torched.

    Trump is close to having this right, he says it is ANTIFA. They are probably part of it but there are probably other lefty groups.

    It is clear that in Oakland, and this goes for other cities, the obvious targets were not protected.

    The police really just chased the masses of protesters around in circles and shot tear gas at them, leaving the lefty anarchists free to do their work.

    There is so much that could have been done to take these characters out of the picture that wasn’t done that it just emphasizes the incompetence of government.

    The last thing I want is these government clowns to “just start shooting.”

    What you are going to get is more of this: Minneapolis National Guard Shooting Rubber Bullets at People On Their Own Porches.

    In these situations, you really have to protect yourself. Letting the police loose will own be a clampdown on law-abiding citizens. Lefties, gangbangers and urban primitives are not going to follow the rules.

    I have two friends who have businesses in the downtown Oakland area, they both took different approaches but they knew what to do to protect their businesses. This stuff is not complicated once you stop thinking like a bureaucrat who thinks more regulations and more government of any kind is the solution.

    The country is shaking right now. It is because of government. The lockdowns across the nation did not play just a small role. You have people locked-down for months and the first chance they are allowed out, especially youth, they are going to run wild. Then you have the much more sophisticated radical “burn everything down” anarchist lefties. They study police vulnerabilities (Note: not hard to find).

    The response from government will be more crackdowns, which will result in more blowback.

    The only real solution is for libertarians to point out that government is the problem and that less government is the only answer. It should never be to call for more government or more “efficient” government.

    Governments do not play the freedom game. It is about gaining and consolidating power with them.

    We should never, ever, call for more government.

    Government has brought us very close to the brink of collapse.

    If we encourage government police to shoot more, they will eventually start shooting at us.

    It is a very unstable time, we should be spending a lot of time thinking about options for survival not calling for more government action that may ultimately limit our options and flexibility when we may need it most.”

    Glenn Reynolds got off the best line: “Looking at lefty takes on social media, it seems that these riots are entirely justified responses to systemic racism, and the only possible way to force social change, and they’re being instigated by white supremacists.”

    Many commenters looked forward to a big national party when the coronavirus lockdown ended, a spontaneous explosion of joy and relief. This was what we got instead.

    The lockdown was a moronic social engineering experiment.

    We confined 330 million people to their quarters from winter till summer under social pressure and the fear of death, with economic ruin piling up on the doorstep, and release repeatedly deferred from week to week.

    Young people, the material for every riot and rebellion, were turned loose from school in enormous numbers without occupation or structured interaction.

    We closed every social safety valve from church to card parties for two and a half months, never anticipating that an explosive decompression might follow.

    Exactly what form the blast would take depended on what kind of spark ignited the volatile mix, but the “government solves everything” crowd didn’t even seem to understand that we were playing with social dynamite.

    If they did know…….well they are criminals & murders

    There’s passivity and then there’s walking into a trap. I agree with that Trump should be wary of this being another pre-planned trap.

    Trump was very smart to leave decisions on lockdowns and re-openings to state and local governments, so public support or anger could stay right there. I think he’d be smart to do the same with riots.

    The rioters are mostly committing state crimes like arson and vandalism, so let state law enforcement do their jobs. Or not. Either way, the narrative stays about what local leaders do or fail to do, and citizens who are not crazy can see their leftist local leaders running scared with their own monsters.

    Their aim is to show President Trump as a present-day Hitler, a dictator who will marshal the military against the nation. He cannot fall for that ploy!

    President Trump needs to continue stating what he has been stating: It is the responsibility of the states and the cities to provide for the safety and protection of its citizens. The National Guard is available for you to use if you require further assistance.

    I fear that if he declared martial law, there will be one gigantic hissing of the ” WE TOLD YOU SO” by the media and liberals across the nation!
