How many stories have we seen indicating that destruction, violence and rioting is a deliberate effort by opponents of BLM to smear the movement or instigate other bad acts?

Black Americans followed the lead of a white supremacist?

The peaceful protesting turned into looting and rioting because of an agitator with malicious intentions?

I feel embarrassed for them.

#2 How many were actually black Americans and not more false flaggers like this guy? Guess you aren't willing to explore the facts.

"Black Americans followed the lead of a white supremacist?"

They're finally assimilating to white culture!

Boaz must be so proud.

He was an obvious agent-provocateur.

Who is surprised?

I am.

I figured he would have been a cop.

I am sure he was a very fine person.

Guess who isn't a terrorist organization according to Trump and Barr?

Right wing white supremacists.

Trump-Barr for prison 2021.

So the police know who he is, but charges have not been filed.

Destruction of property and vandalism is a local matter. County sheriff can handle it. Local DA will file charges before too long and he will get arrested.

"County sheriff can handle it."

This happened two months ago.
They should have handled it when it happened.
Pretty sure they were happy to just let the flames rise higher.
Serves their political agenda.

They don't name him or his occupation, only that he's a member of a white supremacist group so he could still be a cop. It's not like police departments have a solid record of cleansing racists from their ranks.

The man is a suspected member of the Hell's Angels biker gang, as well as the Aryan Cowboy Brotherhood, according to the Star Tribune.

Typical MAGAt.

He is Hell's Angels according to the original article linked in this short one. The original article is pretty detailed and kind of a must read for another perspective.

Black Americans confronted him asked what the hell he was doing and who he was and chased him off.

I am embarrassed for you.

It took the police two months to find this guy.
Any embarrassment there?

You really can't believe that the police just weren't that interested in finding him, can you?
I could try feeling embarrassed for you, if it would help open your eyes.
Let me know.

How many people demanded to know who the guy was and how many people followed his lead?

I'm horrified how easily lead astray the vast majority were and how many people replicated their behavior in other cities.

The white supremacists got just what they wanted and then some.

Just now noticing who's in the White House?

Trump's being in the White House wasn't enough for them apparently.

Massive numbers of black people being violent?

It plays right into their narrative.

"I'm horrified how easily lead astray the vast majority were and how many people replicated their behavior in other cities."

You mean like, you can smash windows out of a store, and the police won't bother tracking you down for two months?

"Until the actions of the person your affiant has been calling Umbrella man,' the protests had been relatively peaceful. The actions of this person created an atmosphere of hostility and tension. Your affiant believes that this individual's sole aim was to incite violence."

And then, police let that atmosphere hang in the air for two months.

"Police have reportedly identified the man through an email tip, but he has not yet been charged with any crimes and the Star Tribune is not naming him."

And the police still haven't even charged him or arrested him.

Now, tell me, whose fault is that, Tor?

You got what you wanted, didn't you, Tor?

You are aghast at confederate monuments being torn down. You cite non-existent ACLU statements on it. You rationalized it by saying "all monuments."
You questioned Bubba Wallace' and the noose situation, even blaming Wallace himself for actions he never took.
Now you're blaming the ensuing looting on the Black folks and saying the White Supremacists are smart because they got what they wanted.
All I hear when I read your reaction is "those dumb black folks."

You are an enigma to me. You aren't a right-winger, that's for sure, but you do hold some views I couldn't possibly reconcile if I had them.

Who was doing the looting?

How many rioters are black versus other races?

Why are you so focused on black people?

#20 | Posted by JOE at 2020-07-29 12:56 PM | Reply | Newsworthy 1

You left out the second part of the sentence.

What are the looters and rioters after winning a football game?

You're making this about race and less about the circumstances of the people in that neighborhood and what they've endured for decades.

Whatabutism is the hallmark of russians.

Enjoy the block.

#19 | POSTED BY TOR

Criminals.

Criminals loot and riot.

Protesters protest.

Police are supposed to arrest the one and protect the other.

Crowd control is a tough job. Not everyone can do it. It's easy to make a bad situation worse. Criminals take advantage of chaos.

Just like the President is doing.

Hope that answered your question.

Donner your answer makes alot more sense than the hysteria I'm seeing from others.

Tor,
Aren't the police setting the example that smashing out windows and other acts of vandalism and looting will not be punished, by not arresting this guy for two months?

I am sure that Dear Leader Trumpy will make sure this guy gets the longest prison sentence possible.

Before he pardons him and gives him the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
