    I'm hearing a choirs of bleating from the right who will paint all protesters as violent thugs who are committing assaults and vandalism to protest the George Floyd murder. They are lying or they are stupid. Most protesters understand the value of non violent peaceful protest and are conducting themselves accordingly. But the far right knows the value of fomenting trouble in order to promote an entirely different agenda then that of the protesters.

    Boogaloo Boys are far-right police-hating anarchists just like Antifa are far-left police-hating anarchists. Neither group is particularly focused on race as a key issue. Both want to overthrow the government, and think that violence against the establishment (not against race) is the way to accomplish their goals.

    The "establishment" law enforcement....police, sheriffs, and National Guard need to shut down any individuals or groups which are destroying peoples' property.

    Care to provide some documentation/ source for that, or is it an opinion disguised as fact? But even if true, it does not change to reality of the fact that these are agitators who don't give a **** about Floyd.

    True. The rioters and anarchists are burning cars, houses, and businesses and don't care about "racial injustice". Extremists are opportunists, and media fomentation and attention presented a huge opportunity for hate and chaos.

    These arent protestors, they are rioters. The worst scum on earth.

    As far as civil war goes, its happening. I’m not happy about it, but its happening. Might as well just prepare yourself for that inevitability. This is what happens when dems and the MSM foment hatred over nonsensical, objectively incorrect narratives.

    I don't what news sources you use, but all of the white people I see getting the crap beat out of them is being done by people who would in no way be considered white supremacists.

    Right. Boogaloo Boys do "hate the police"....so they might target police officers, not burn down buildings and go looting.

    The fires and property destruction are mostly being caused by a bunch of self-loathing, America-hating white Antifa thugs.

    The young black men looting stores are just opportunists. While the police are standing down, their odds are being caught and punished are pretty slim right now.

    Democrats insisted on a lockdown which would deeply harm the most vulnerable.

    Now we have the inevitable Lockdown Riots.

    No surprise.

    The End

    Fomenting trouble?

    So the people staying at home are fomenting trouble while the rioters and looters are the heroes saving us from them. Ain't liberal logic grand? :roll:

    With or without the lockdown, these bastards would have engaged at the first opportunity(seeing as how they prepared all of this.). The lockdown simply gave them that time to prepare to attack America.

    It is you painting the right with a broad stroke. I would hope that opposing abuse of power by law enforcement would be common ground for both sides.

    While rioters and looters do not represent the majority of protesters, they do come from your side. I do not see anything from the right opposing peaceful protests. I did notice a lot of noise when people peacefully assembled against government abuse of power in other cases, but I am not painting the left with the same broad stroke. Im sure you supported those men carrying their rifles, right?

    "The media has a herculean task of making Democrats look good in an election year. Well, you can’t do that when all Democrat-led areas are on fire because their leadership is weak and allowed portions of their cities to be surrendered to the mob for destruction."

    Democrats have been getting votes by repeating the narrative that America is endemically evil and that we're just a bunch of tribal races pitted against each other in an unsolvable and endless battle which has not changed one bit between the years 1619 and 2020. Democrat leaders, who are mostly white and wealthy, are going to come to the rescue and solve the intrinsic evil racism. That's the main platform. The white people on one side of the aisle are saviors and angels, and the white people on the other side of the aisle are evil oppressive devils.

    Now that they've convinced most of their voting base that the "white establishment" is the boogey-man enemy of the poor oppressed people of color in an entirely racist society, they can't use police resources against the angry mobs which they created without looking like hypocrites. On the other hand, most Democrats (and Republicans and apoliticals) are really wanting them to stop the rioters and looters from burning their property, businesses, and cities.

    Dem leadership have painted themselves into a corner with several decades of false rhetoric ever since the Civil Rights Act produced very positive change. The Frankenstein monster turned against its maker. These rioters and lootings are a creation and a result of the left's racial propaganda which foments division and hatred.

    There are always bad apples, but this is mostly general civil unrest over Democrat-inflicted misery.

    The whole "Antifa and/or Nazis did it!" narrative is as silly as it is dangerous.

    Facts. A slight racial bias surrounding "feelings of warmth" toward one's own "tribe" is just about even across blacks, Hispanics, Asians and conservative whites. The only outlier, of self-loathing and shame is in white liberals, who apparently don't like white people very much. LOL

    1) I'm sure that the vast majority of protesters are peaceful and a small minority are rioting. We should then not blame the majority of protesters for the rioting.
    2) I'm also sure that the vast majority of police are not racist and a small minority are killing black people.

    Assuming number 1 and 2 are true, why are they protesting?

    I'm not the protest type personality, but I was outraged when I watched the George Floyd video. That kneeling on someone's neck until they are unconscious is acceptable use of force is just horrible. If I were the protest type, I'd join peaceful protests for reform as to what methods of restraint are allowed.

    It is a bit of a turnoff that the politicized message is that "Racist police kill black people," when the real problem is that this country appears to be using methods of police restraint from some caveman era when we now live in high-tech, modern times. I'm sure there's got to be a safer and more humane way to arrest people.

    Oh nonsense. You hear no such thing.
    You know what they say about pointing the finger at others.
    Yet, oddly, the folks geting getting arrested for looting, bombing, assaulting and property destruction are from the Left. Looks like you are making up your claims as you go along.

    These black lives don't matter, as far as the national Fake News media are concerned: 82 shot, 22 killed over the weekend in Chicago.
