Orchestrated by the Democrats intentionally to force a (justified) armed response they can later portray as a racist attack by Trump on black Americans.

Before the pandemic, I was predicting this as the one thing they could do to pull out a win in the election. These people have been preparing and waiting in the wings for their opportunity.

Yeah, I could tell by the fact that my local popcorn supplier just issued a profit warning.

Civil unrest usually results in more conservative voting by the majority I think. If the democrats are behind this, it is pretty stupid. Not that stupid has ever stopped them before ...

The facts here speak for themselves. No one defended the cop who was fired and charged. The other 3 cops where fired and may be charged. The riots have continued, mostly by white outsiders in mostly black areas. At this point any claim of racism is a very hard sell.

I think it is very clear this violence is being used by some group to attempt some sort of violent political uprising. Most of those involved seem to be antifa, therefore this looks like their attempted "communist takeover" or some entity using them for another reason. All they are really succeeding in doing is destroying solid blue areas and hurting the people who live there. 2020 seems to be the year big cities political power is broken. If this was the brain child of any left leaning person they did not think it through.

The left has been quick to blame the "far right" but so far I have seen no evidence of anyone claiming to protest for anything remotely right of moderate left wing positions. So that claim makes no sense.

BlAcK lIvEs MaTtEr ... so lets kill black federal officers ... https://abc7news.com/george-floyd-protest-oakland-federal-officer-killed-patrick-underwood-in/6221576/

These riots are nothing to do with a black civilian that was murdered by the police. People a fucked off, really fucked off with the needed response to the Chinese virus. The initial protests were valid but then it was used to vent everything

This has just been a case of anarcho/communists trying to attain their goal of the destruction of the Constitutional government of the US, aided by the outside interest of George Soros.

It's going to backfire, just like the attempted impeachment, just like the attempts to exacerbate and prolong the economic damage caused by the pandemic.

Been enjoying watching worthless channer edgelords with katanas and compound bows getting the shit kicked out of them.

How about that Tanker Truck Of Peace barrelling down a closed road into a crowd, eh? Redneck fuckin' neckbeard at the wheel, shame they didn't off him when they dragged his pasty ass out of the cab.

It's always the people screaming "muslims" that turn out to be the real terrorists, ain't it? Not as anonymous as you think you are.

There is more truth in this article than many Americans are willing to embrace.

Regarding the death of Floyd. Deducting on bits and pieces of information we have it probably was like this. He was intoxicated, he had a heart or some other health problem, he was resisting arrest. Police pinned him down, that's what they do with offenders who resist, waiting for backup and transport. One should not fight police if his health is poor. To begin with, one should not try to pay with counterfeit money ...
Was this Floyd killed by cops? I'm not sure, all we know he died while in custody.

I was going to but then you get shot down by the far right in here who all jump in and say "he was just doing his job" :roll: Put it this way, no-one bothers to even post anymore when 20 kids in a school get murdered. Police murdering black people and school shootings seem to be the norm

Patrick Underwood was a Federal Law Enforcement Officer who was killed this weekend by Antifa. He was Black. Does his life matter?

NBC report shows the behavior of the police wasn't racism but defined by their cultural history. In this western cowboy state of Minnesota the police was encouraged to handle their male customers like cows.
