Those Violent Protesters

AG Barr stepped up and blamed most of the violence in the streets on Antifa Movement….about now most Americans will be asking….what the Hell is Antifa?

I have your answer…..https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/articles/X56rQkDgd0qqB7R68t6t7C/seven-things-you-need-to-know-about-antifa

Or if that was not enough…..https://www.firstpost.com/world/antifa-explained-all-you-need-to-know-about-the-movement-donald-trump-wants-to-declare-a-terrorist-organisation-8432291.html

He as “Ball Boy” for Donald the Orange has stepped up to help make the protests political…..

As officials warned that extremist groups may have infiltrated the protests over George Floyd’s death, President Trump on Sunday asserted that the US would declare antifa a terrorist group. “The United States of America will be designating ANTIFA as a Terrorist Organization,” he tweeted, after days of tweets about “LAW & ORDER!” and “ANARCHISTS” and the need to use the “unlimited power of our Military.” The New York Times notes Trump has no clear authority to actually do that, seeing as antifa, which stands for anti-fascist, is not an organization but “a diffuse movement of left-wing protesters.” Even if it were an organization, there is no law granting the federal government authority to declare a domestic group a terrorist organization; it can only do so for foreign entities. (Politico has more on the ins and outs of this.) After Trump’s tweet, Attorney General William Barr said the FBI would partner with state and local police to identify domestic terrorists who are instigating riots.

The AP reports that federal officials and experts who track extremist groups have both warned that far-left and far-right groups appear to be at work “stoking violence” amid otherwise peaceful protests, and that foreign agents might be behind a disinformation campaign on social media aimed at increasing political tensions. One expert explains to the Washington Post that while the role of outside groups is likely being exaggerated by the administration, it is true that some people simply use situations like this as an excuse to loot stores while others infiltrate the protests in order to turn them violent and thus discredit them. That’s what some Minnesota officials think is happening, warning, per CNN, that white supremacist “agitators” appear to be attending protests in the state. But one expert says she sees evidence of groups hoping to start a second civil war: “They want to co-opt [the protests] in order to start their war. They see themselves as being on the side of protesters and that the protesters themselves are useful in causing anarchy.”

But you know how pathetic this action is…..why?

Department of Safety Commissioner John Harrington said they are contact-tracing the arrested and added that an investigation is underway about white nationalist groups posting online to encourage their members to use the protests as a cover to create chaos.

He said some of the 40 arrests made in the Twin Cities Friday night were of people linked to white supremacist groups and organized crime.

“The people that are doing this are not Minneapolis residents,” Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey said. “They are coming largely from outside the city outside the region to prey on everything we have built.”

  2. There’s a memory stuck in my mind from the Charlottesville protest in 2017 of neo nazis goosestepping with arms raised in that nazi salute & chanting “Heil Trump”. Those are among those labeled “very fine people” by the facist-in-chief. Should he lose the election, & subsequent inauguration of our new president i fear that the violence we’re seeing will be minor compared to what dRumpf’s facist followers will carry out.

    1. Good point…..they will not accept defeat just like the Civil War….remember they got their butts handed to them by Antifa at that time in 2017…..chuq

  3. The right-wing neo-nazis infiltrated the protests to incite looting and shooting. That was just so Trump could blame the Left. Classic Nazi tactics, from the 1930s.
    Best wishes, Pete.

      1. Yes, I have seen this. After the terror attacks around this country, this is actually a very popular move. Many people thought the previous sentences had been too lenient.
        Best wishes, Pete.

      2. In some respects I do. Those terror attacks have to be experienced to fully understand their impact. I would ‘throw away the key’ on those involved. I am also a supporter of reintroducing the death penalty, which might seem strange to you, chuq.

      3. Yes…I have always opposed the death penalty no matter the offense….our penal system is broken and cannot be repaired….all we can do is bitch and moan. chuq
