Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, June 05, 2020

Law enforcement agents have seized hundreds of cloth masks that read "Stop killing Black people" and "Defund police" that a Black Lives Matter-affiliated organization sent to cities around the country to protect demonstrators against the spread of COVID-19, a disease that has had a disparate impact on Black communities.

So Trump is selling MAGA masks and MAGA camo hats to his MAGA army, but the feds under his command are ceasing BLM masks?:

"The masks, reading "Stop killing Black people," were meant to quell the spread of the coronavirus, which has disproportionately affected Black Americans."

But but. "This isn't China! "

According to deplorables.

This is America! Or it was until King Trump arrived.

What a sad chapter in American history.

Hope it's not the last one.

How many American rights, guaranteed by the Constitution, has Trump violated just in the past several weeks?

What does the Bureau Of Land Management have to do with any of this?!?!?

Absolutely nothing to do with this.

They will have to hire an attorney and spend tens of thousands of dollars to get the masks back.

Welcome to Trump's America.

Bad move. beside the questionable legality, these are now the 'gotta have' accessory for street protesters. I thought Trump was a smart businessman. He is just helping a competitor...

Dry run for seizing the vote by mail.

Dry run for seizing the vote by mail.


Essentially yes. Because they can allege that the votes seized were being sent illegally. Then it will take substantial legal wrangling to get those released...which wouldn't happen until after the election.

Reminds me of an old Perry Mason episode. Mason: We all know the US Mail is inviolable, and the only person who can open it on a Judge's court order is the Postmaster General.

Enough that he should have been removed from office by any Senators who frame themselves as "patriots". They are in violation of their oath to protect and defend the Constitution. Instead, they are only trying to protect and defend their own rear ends. ---- them.

Thanks for posting that. At least when it got some press the trumplings decided seizing those masks wasn't such a bright idea after all.

I wonder what would have happened if a D governor had seized a shipment of MAGA hats?

Trumpy and his minions are like cockroaches.

Turn a light on them and they scatter.
