No justice for Ashli Babbitt.

Tucker Carlson, of Fox News, says, “America is now one nation with two very different justice systems.”

I would say this has been the case for quite a few years now!

“The people in power crack down on their enemies and give their allies a soft landing.”

“The ironically-named ‘Civil Rights Division’ of the Biden Justice [InJustice] Department announced Wednesday [4/14/21] there will be no charges brought against the man who shot and killed protester Ashli Babbitt in the Capitol back in January. No one who pays attention was surprised to hear this.”

If it was a black woman, or a liberal protester, who got shot by a white cop, there damn sure would be charges being brought, and lynch mobs forming, just like in Minnesota these days.  

Just sayin’.

Please see my prior blogs on this matter for a better frame of reference:

 “In cases like this, the benefit of the doubt usually does go to law enforcement, and as we’ve often said, we’re fine with that. It should. But still, in a free society, the rest of us have a right to know roughly what happened. In this case, who shot Ashli Babbitt and why?”

You forget, Tucker, that the new deep state “Gestapo” doesn’t have to answer to anybody. 

“No one will tell us. The Biden administration says the man who killed Babbitt is a Capitol Hill police officer, and he did the right thing. That’s all they’ve said.”

“Did the right thing?”

“Did the right thing” where?

Nazi Germany, Communist Russia, Communist China, North Korea?

Does the United States fit in with this group now?

“We know that Ashli Babbitt was short, female [an Air Force veteran] and unarmed. There’s no evidence the officer who killed her gave any kind of verbal warming before he pulled the trigger. Is that standard procedure?”

No.

“We’d imagined the rules of engagement for federal agents limited the use of deadly force to situations where law enforcement has reason to believe they or the people around them are in imminent danger of being harmed. You can’t just shoot people without warning because they’re in the wrong place. That’s not allowed.”

“Except now, apparently, it is allowed.”

“When did these rules change?”

When the Democrat Nazi Party assumed power.

“And, once again, who exactly shot Ashli Babbitt? Journalists exist to ask questions like these, but they’re not.”

“The Washington Post wrote a long story about the DOJ’s [Ha! You the “J” in DOJ stands for justice?!] announcement in the case and never raised a single one of these questions. The Post didn’t name the shooter or even acknowledge that the government is withholding his name.” 

Why would the government be able to withhold his name?

How is the government able to withhold his name?

‘“Authorities determined that there was insufficient evidence to prove Babbitt’s civil rights were violated,’ the Post declared. That was it. The rest of the piece was a personal attack on Ashli Babbitt and her political views. She deserved to die. That was the point of the Washington Post story.”

Regardless of whether her civil rights were violated or not [they were], she was murdered by a Capitol police officer, and there’s plenty of evidence to prove that.

This officer has obviously been offered protection as long as he keeps his mouth shut, concerning the circumstances of their response to the protesters and the shooting itself.     

“How amazing to read something like this, especially now. Eleven hundred miles from Washington, in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, a police officer accidentally reached for her gun instead of a Taser and killed a man called Daunte Wright. It was a tragedy, as all shootings are. But we know that officer’s name because every news organization in the country printed it immediately. She has now resigned and is facing charges. Her mugshot is all over the Internet. Two nights ago, a mob showed up at her house, forcing her to flee.”

Quite a difference between how the two cases are being handled.  

Like Tucker said, “America is now one nation with two very different justice systems,” although neither is affording any justice.

“She’s not the only one. Last August, a police officer in Kenosha, Wisconsin shot a man called Jacob Blake. Remember that? Riots erupted immediately. Yesterday, that officer was cleared of all charges. When that story broke, NPR put that police officer’s name and photograph on the front of their website.”

“So that’s the standard, except in this case where they are still hiding the identity of the man who shot Ashli Babbitt.”

Ashli, of course, was white, a conservative, and a Trump supporter, deeming her unworthy of any rights or consideration at all…, just like a Jew back in the days of the Nazis and the Third Reich.  

“Sensing a theme here? The standards that big news organizations use to cover shootings depend entirely on the political views of the people who get shot. When The Washington Post doesn’t like the candidates you vote for, they suppress the details of the case. In the case of Ashli Babbitt, we’d know next to nothing about how she died, and we wouldn’t know anything if her shooting hadn’t been captured on video by people who don’t work at the Washington Post.” 

“One of those people is a video editor from Texas called Samuel Montyoa. Montoya was in the U.S. Capitol that day. Montoya doesn’t look much like a White supremacist, and he has no criminal history that we’re aware of. On Jan. 6, Samuel Montoya took what may be the clearest video of Ashli Babbitt’s death:

https://mssl.fwmrm.net/m/1/382114/77/9982029/21NFM134830H_ENT_MEZZ_HULU_2968404_578.mp4

“When you watch the video, there are a lot of things to notice. Ashli Babbitt had no weapon. She wasn’t attacking anyone. She couldn’t attack anyone, because she was climbing through a window at the moment she was shot. But what’s most striking is that several Capitol Hill police officers in paramilitary gear were standing directly behind Babbitt when she was killed. They were carrying what Joe Biden refers to as weapons of war — loaded AR-15s.”

In addition, as you watch the video, you can see, initially, there are three Capitol police officers standing between the group of protesters in the hallway and the doors.

At this point, everything seems to be relatively under control.  Then for some reason the three officers abandon their position in front of the doors and move behind the group, seemingly allowing, or even inviting, the protesters to have their way with the doors.

Then, you can see the officer on the other side of the doors, who is black, step out and shoot Ashli Babbitt.

The officer shoots at Ashli Babbitt, who is in a crowed of people, with the three other armed officers directly behind her!

The three officers behind Ashli apparently didn’t think she was a threat.

They didn’t lift a finger to stop what was going on.

And anyone of those three could have been very easily hit by the officer firing the shot as well.

Even if Ashli did manage to get through the doors, what was she going to do that justified her being killed?   

Tucker continues, “So, tell us again how Ashli Babbitt posed an imminent physical threat to anyone when she was shot. She didn’t. Samuel Montoya’s footage proves it. And we’re grateful we have that tape. If we didn’t, The New York Times would be telling us that Ashli Babbitt was beating people to death with a fire extinguisher when she was killed.  Thanks to Samuel Montoya, the New York Times can’t claim that.”

The story about the guy beating an officer with a fire extinguisher turned out to be made up propaganda as well.

“We’d love to have Montoya on ‘Tucker Carlson Tonight’ to describe what he saw that day, but we can’t do that, because he’s in jail.”

“Yesterday, a large group of armed federal agents showed up at his house in Austin. They smashed Montoya’s front door, confiscated his electronic devices and threw him in jail.”

Sounds like the new democrat “Gestapo” to me!

“He’s behind bars right now.  What was his crime?” 

“Well, to find out, we read the Biden administration’s arrest warrant application. The FBI says it began investigating Montoya after one of his family members provided ‘proof that Montoya was physically inside the U.S. Capital near the shooting of a woman on January 6, 2021.’ To be clear, Montoya didn’t shoot the woman. He just happened to be nearby.”

So, the guy who took the video of the shooting is arrested, but the guy who actually did the shooting wasn’t?

“But wait a second. Weren’t there plenty of journalists inside the Capitol on Jan. 6? According to CNN, yes there were. CNN ran a piece telling us that, ‘Congressional reporters became the country’s eyes and ears as rioters stormed Capitol Hill.’ So why hasn’t the FBI arrested the people CNN identified in its story — the photographers from Getty, the political reporters from NBC, the congressional correspondents from CNN and the AP?”

Those people were all authorized to be there by the democrat “Gestapo,” silly! That’s why.  

“Well, that’s a good question. The FBI explains why in the warrant affidavit. ‘At times during the video, Montoya describes himself to others inside the Capitol Building as a “reporter” or “journalist” as he attempts to get through crowds.’ And yet, the FBI concludes, ‘The director of the Congressional press galleries within the Senate Press office did a name check on Samuel Christopher Montoya and confirmed that no one by that name has Congressional press credentials as an individual, or via any other organizations.’”

The nerve of this individual to “identify” himself as a reporter!!!

Form the firing squad immediately!

“So, that’s the standard. If the U.S. Congress’s credentialing office says that you’re not a journalist, you’re not a journalist. Did Samuel Montoya have strong personal political views? Apparently, he did. But you may have noticed that’s not so unusual in journalism right now. So why is journalist Samuel Montoya behind bars tonight? Well, he committed a crime? ‘Interfering with government business.’ In other words, trespassing. If this happened in Ukraine, what are the chances NBC News would describe Samuel Montoya as a ‘dissident journalist,’ and then describe Ashli Babbitt an ‘unarmed pro-democracy demonstrator?’ The chances are roughly 100%.”

“But this is America, and they’re not saying that. Instead they’re telling us that Ashli Babbitt deserved to die.”

“Joy Reid, of MSNBC, said, ‘She embraced conspiracy theories. Her name was Ashli Babbitt, 35 years old. She tweeted about Pizzagate. She tweeted thousands of tweets to Fox News hosts. She engaged [on] social media with the conspiracy news Internet site Info Wars. In 2020, she began to tweet with QAnon accounts and use QAnon hashtags.’”

“Oh, see, not a pro-democracy demonstrator, not an unarmed military veteran. So, she sent tweets to Fox News hosts. No problem. Ashli Babbitt got what she deserved.”

“What’s amazing is not simply the grotesque cruelty of assessments like that — a young women is shot to death and the media applaud — but what’s more amazing is the contrast between this and the coverage of other violence that’s now in progress.”

“Tuesday night, Biden voters burned a police building in Portland, Oregon. Did you know that? Probably not, it didn’t get much coverage.” 

“In the wake of Daunte Wright’s death Sunday, riots broke out all over the country, in New York, Philadelphia, Chicago, and Minneapolis.”

“People were stealing stuff off store shelves, but don’t call it looting. It’s a peaceful demonstration. We know that because the mayor of Brooklyn Center, Mike Elliott, told us so. Tuesday night, Mayor Elliott tweeted a picture of himself on the scene.”

‘“Earlier this evening, I had the opportunity to go talk to these peaceful protesters,’ he wrote. ‘Our city is calm now.’”

“Here’s the funny thing: the mayor’s wearing a Kevlar helmet in the picture, which was not taken in Syria, but in his own town. That’s how peaceful it is. He was wearing a Kevlar helmet. Whatever else he is, Mike Elliott isn’t a very effective liar.”

“Laws have no meaning if they’re not applied equally. When they are not applied equally, they are not even laws. They’re just tools of political persecution. You don’t want to live in a country like that, even if the people you don’t like are the ones being persecuted.”

“Rashida Tlaib does want to live like that. Tlaib is a member of Congress, so her security is never in doubt. She’s protected by bodyguards, weapons of war, and now thousands of federal troops you’re paying for. She’s fine. But in your neighborhood, she’d like to see the police eliminated.”

‘“No more policing, incarceration, and militarization,’ Tlaib wrote on Twitter this week. ‘It can’t be reformed.’”

“Again, militarization is fine if the military is protecting her. She’s got federal troops. But not for you. You get mob rule. We’re not making this up, we’re not misquoting her. She’s demanding this in public as a member of Congress. Many are.”

“A panel of privileged people tell you to abolish the police. But they’re not saying actually abolish the police. We often claim they are, but listen very carefully. They say they want to abolish American policing as it currently exists. And that raises the question: how does policing currently exist?”

“Here’s how: local communities get to control it. So, the cops walking down your street, you hired them. That’s what Rashida Tlaib doesn’t like. That’s what offends MSNBC. The thing they hate about it is that they don’t control it. They can’t use your local police department to punish you for your political views. For that, they have to go to the FBI. It drives them crazy.” 

“Abolishing the police doesn’t mean getting rid of people with guns. It merely and specifically means stripping you of any control over local law enforcement. It’s just a more ambitious form of gun control, meant to disempower the citizenry, not protect them. When your police department answers to them, things will be very different.” 

“To get a sense of how different, take a look at what the Biden administration is doing in the state of Oregon. In the past few days, federal prosecutors have essentially dropped half a dozen federal felony cases that arose from those famous riots in Portland last summer. The feds reached non-prosecution agreements, which ensure that people who committed felonies will walk away with no criminal record of any kind.”

“What are the defendants in Oregon accused of doing? More than trespassing.”

“One of them, a woman called Alexandra Eutin, was charged with beating a Portland police officer in the head with a wooden shield while he was trying to make an arrest.”

“Now that’s bad, obviously. But it’s not quite as bad as, say, voting for Donald Trump, or walking around the Capitol building with a camera. Alexandra Eutin won’t have a criminal record by the end of this. Samuel Montoya could spend the next seven years in jail.”

“You see what’s going on. Two systems of justice — one for the allies of the people in charge, and a very different one for their enemies. These aren’t traditional liberals. They’re not calling for a peaceful utopia where no one uses violence. This isn’t the tradition of Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King. That was the old liberalism. We used to make fun of it, when it was going on. We could use a lot more of it now. This stuff is scary.”

Agreed.

This stuff is very scary.

Our country is being hijacked right before our eye by “the deep state,” a razor thin majority in the House of Representatives, no majority in the Senate, and an illegitimate president.

Thank you, MrEricksonRules.

Here we go, again, with rioting, looting, and burning.

According to David Aaro of Fox News, “Minnesota police and rioters clash after Daunte Wright shooting.  The Police shot and killed Wright, a 20-year-old Black man, during a traffic stop Sunday, after female police officer mistakes firearm for taser and fatally shoots him.”

I’m not sure how you mistake your gun for a taser, but that’s her story.

“Minnesota authorities arrested about 40 people after rioters and police clashed for a second night in Brooklyn Center, Minn., authorities said during a news conference early Tuesday.”

“Hundreds gathered outside the Brooklyn Center Police Department Monday and defied curfew. They demanded justice for Daunte Wright, a 20-year-old Black man fatally shot by police during a traffic stop.”

No matter what happens, Daunte Wright is dead, and there’s no bringing him back. 

I’m sure the officer who shot him will pay for her “mistake.”

I’m not sure what these crowds want.

Do they want to see her dragged out into the street and lynched?

Is that their idea of justice?   

“The crowd chanted ‘Daunte Wright!’ Some shouted obscenities at officers.”

“Authorities fired tear gas, and flash-bang grenades into the crowd after warning them that they were in violation of curfew. Some rioters retaliated by throwing smoke canisters back toward law enforcement, while others launched fireworks at the police lines, according to reports.”

I’m sure they were all shaking in their boots when they were reminded they were braking curfew.

“Authorities said officers were shelled ‘pretty significantly,’ with objects thrown from the crowd. A few officers were hit by debris and suffered minor injuries during the unrest, police said.”

“Minnesota State Patrol Col. Matt Langer said law enforcement officials made attempts to talk with protest leaders about figuring how to peacefully disperse the crowds, but ‘unfortunately, those efforts weren’t successful … so … [we] stood and protected that building.’”

“Looters also broke into several businesses at a strip mall near the police station, including a Dollar Tree store, according to reports.”

“Brooklyn Center Police Chief Tim Gannon described the shooting death Sunday of 20-year-old Daunte Wright as ‘an accidental discharge.’”

Again, I’m not sure how you mistake your gun for a taser, but that’s her story.

It’s just a shame that this all could have been avoided if Wright would have just cooperated with the police rather than deciding to fight them.

That being said, he still did not deserve to die.

But that still doesn’t justify the actions of the rioters.

“Police shot and killed Wright during a traffic stop in a Minneapolis suburb on Sunday. The bodycam footage showed three police officers gathered near a stopped car that was pulled over an expired registration. Police attempted to arrest Wright for an outstanding warrant, leading to a struggle, followed by the fatal shooting.”

So, you’re telling me that three officers can’t control this one guy without having to taser him or shoot him?

They had the guy up against his car, with his hands behind his back and, somehow, he is allowed to get back into his car?

I would say these cops were guilty doing a very poor job of controlling the situation as well.  

“Vice President Kamala Harris took to Twitter late Monday to comment on the shooting and said Wright’s family needs ‘justice and healing’ as the investigation plays out.”

‘“Prayers are not enough,’ she tweeted. ‘Daunte Wright should still be with us. While an investigation is underway, our nation needs justice and healing, and Daunte’s family needs to know why their child is dead—they deserve answers.’”

Nice job, Kamala.  Way to diffuse the situation!

NOT!

At least she managed to not burst into laughter for once.

And, the words “prayers are not enough,” seem to be a new catch phrase for the Godless, democrat Nazis.

Keep your ears open.  I’m sure this won’t be the last time we hear these words.   

“Brooklyn Center Police Chief Tim Gannon said the officer who shot and killed Wright had intended to fire a Taser, not the handgun.”

“The officer was identified as Kimberly A. Potter, whose career with the Brooklyn Center Police Department has spanned more than 25 years, the Star Tribune reported. The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension said Monday night that Potter is on standard administrative leave.”

On a side note…, it’s been over three months now, and we still don’t know the identity of the Capitol police officer who shot and killed, an unarmed, Ashli Babbitt, in the Capitol, on January 6, 2021.

Just sayin’.

“Wright died of a gunshot wound to the chest, the Hennepin County Medical Examiner’s office said in a statement.”

“Attorney Ben Crump confirmed to Fox News that the families of George Floyd and Daunte Wright will hold a joint press conference outside the Hennepin County Courthouse at 12 p.m. CT Tuesday amid the trial for Derek Chauvin.”

We can only hope they can find it in their hearts to plead for a stop to the violence.  Even if they do, it probably won’t help matters.

“Brooklyn Center, Minnesota Officer Kimberly A. Potter, who got her police license in 1995, was reportedly training a new officer at the time she fatally shot 20-year-old Daunte Wright.”

‘“She’s just a very dedicated, passionate, good person. It’s completely devastating,’ he told the newspaper. ‘She [is] just a good person, always willing to help out.’”

Well, that’s another shame, because her life is basically over now.

“Daunte Wright’s mother and father, Katie and Aubrey Wright, as well as their attorneys Ben Crump and Jeff Storms, appeared in an exclusive interview on ‘Good Morning America’ [GMA] on Tuesday.”

Again, way to go GMA.  Way to throw gas on the fire in exchange for ratings.  

Not to be outdone by GMA, “Brooklyn Center Mayor Mike Elliott appeared on NBC’s ‘Today’ Tuesday morning after demonstrators defied a curfew on the second night of unrest since Daunte Wright’s shooting.”

‘“In this country if you are Black and you get pulled over by police you have a higher chance of being dead,’ Elliott said. ‘That is a fact.’”

No, this is NOT a “fact.”

The fact is, in this country if you get pulled over by police, and you don’t cooperate with them, or fight with them, you have a higher chance of being dead, regardless of what race you are.

The fact is, that way more white people are killed by the police, than black people.

The facts are, according to Statista.com, “In 2020, the number of people shot to death by the police were: Whites 457, Blacks 241, and Hispanics 169.”

Those are the facts, Mayor Elliot…, not your bit of racist, violence inciting, misinformation.

And, just a note to all of the rioters:

No one is saying what happened to Daunte Wright is acceptable. 

And, you are not helping an already sad situation by looting business, and burning businesses, who had nothing to do with the situation.

In many ways, your actions are worse than those which apparently incited you.

Thank you, MrEricksonRules.

Your definition of “peaceful” is shameful!   

According to Brian Flood of Fox News, “CBS News’ Norah O’Donnell says ‘mostly peaceful’ protests caused $1B to $2B in damage from looting and arson.”

That’s a pretty general statement, and as we will learn, that only reflects damages over a two-week period, not for all “protests” in total.

‘“Peaceful protests don’t leave behind death, destruction, and shattered lives in their wake,’ media analyst Nicholas Fondacaro says.”

“Many members of the mainstream media have made sure to paint nationwide protests as ‘peaceful’ in recent months– and ‘CBS Evening News’ anchor Norah O’Donnell demonstrated how far they’re willing to go on Wednesday night.”

Let’s stop and think about this for minute.

Is that really the job of the mainstream media and “CBS Evening News” in this particular instance, to “paint” events which are happening in our country or around the world?

Aren’t “news organizations” supposed to report what’s happening and let the public decide what to think about it?

“Axios [Axios is an American news website, founded in 2016, and launched the following year by former Politico team members.] reported earlier in the day that damage caused by ‘riots and civil disorders’ from May 26 through June 8 would cost insurance companies between $1-2 billion.”

‘“The vandalism and looting following the death of George Floyd at the hands of the Minneapolis police will cost the insurance industry more than any other violent demonstrations in recent history,’ Axios reported.”

Please note that it still hasn’t been determined that the officers were responsible for George Floyd’s death.

“When O’Donnell reported the overwhelming figure, she made sure to insist the protests were mostly peaceful.”

“Overwhelming figure?”

The real “overwhelming figure” would be the figure that takes into account ALL of the “protesting,” rioting, looting, burning, and vandalizing which has occurred over the past four months.

I would conservatively, no pun intended, estimate those damages to be in the tens of billions of dollars…, which taxpayers and people with insurance will end up paying for, I’m sure.

‘“The protests in late spring were mostly peaceful, but damage from looting and arson will cost $1 to $2 billion in claims. That’s according to the Insurance Information Institute. And that would eclipse the previous high, the 1992 riots that followed the acquittal of four officers in the beating of Rodney King,’ O’Donnell told viewers.”

In truth, the “protests” were mostly NOT peaceful.

“Media Research Center analyst Nicholas Fondacaro pointed out that NBC’s ‘Nightly News’ and ABC’s ‘World News Tonight’ didn’t bother to report the alarming statistic. While O’Donnell at least informed viewers of the damage, Fondacaro doesn’t understand why she needed to add the disclaimer.”

Has the Media Research Center mentioned that the mainstream media has failed to report much, if any, of the violence tied to the “protests” of the last four months?

It’s not really surprising then that most of the media failed to point out these “alarming statistics,” is it?

That answer would be a big, “no.”

‘“Earth to the liberal media, ‘peaceful’ protests don’t leave behind death, destruction, and shattered lives in their wake,’ Fondacaro wrote.”

What death, destruction and shattered lives are you talking about?  Don’t you realize, Mr. Fondacaro, that if the liberal propaganda fake news media doesn’t report something it didn’t really happen?

“Insurance Information Institute (or Triple-I) compiles information from a company called Property Claim Services (PCS), which has tracked insurance claims related to civil disorder since 1950, and other databases. It provided reports to Axios that the damage from unrest between May 26 and June 8 will be the most expensive in the nation’s history, surmounting the Rodney King riots of 1992 in Los Angeles.”

“The price tag could be as much as $2 billion and possibly more, according to Triple I. But the protests related to Floyd differ from others the database has tracked – never before have they been so widespread.”

‘“It’s not just happening in one city or state – it’s all over the country,’ Loretta L. Worters of the Triple-I told Axios. ‘And this is still happening, so the losses could be significantly more.’”

That’s a real good guess there, Ms. Worters.

I guess Captain Obvious could be a woman, although I never really thought about it before!

“The last time PCS compiled insurance losses for a ‘civil disorder event’ was 2015, when riots erupted in Baltimore after Freddie Gray died from a neck injury in police custody. But those riots did not even accrue $25 million in damages.”

Not even $25 million?

Well that’s hardly even worth mentioning then!

Ya know, I’ve seen that rich liberals and Biden staffers, encouraged by Kamala Harris, are raising a lot of money to bail some of these violent “protesters” out of jail. Quite a few in fact.

I keep reading about some of these scared companies donating millions and millions of dollars to the Black Lives Matter organization too.

Maybe the bail-out fund, the Black Lives Matter organization, and the rest of their corporate friends can help pay for some of the damage their friends have caused?

Just sayin’.

What in the Wide, Wide World of Sports is going on here?!

Okay…, so, let me get this straight.

A vice-presidential candidate, in the United States of America, mind you, is encouraging people to contribute money to the Minnesota Freedom Fund, which uses the money to bail criminals out of jail, who have looted businesses, burned down businesses and public buildings, and physically assaulted other people and police officers?

A current vice-presidential candidate, in the United States of America, is doing that?

Sadly, it is absolutely true.

Democrat candidate for vice-president, Kamala Harris, is encouraging people to contribute money to the Minnesota Freedom Fund, which uses the money to bail criminals out of jail, who have looted businesses, burned down businesses and public buildings, and physically assaulted other people and police officers.

This is not an issue at all for most democrats, but the Biden campaign has managed to recognize that a majority of the voters in America don’t see it that way.

So, as a result, they have sent their candidates, “Sleepy” Joe Biden and “Comrade” Kamala Harris, out to lie about their position, and pretend they care about law and order and protecting law abiding citizens.

David Marcus, of “The Federalist” website, reports, “Joe Biden and Kamala Harris have a problem. They know it, the media knows it, everyone knows it.”

“For three months they have ignored the deadly rioting that spread across the nation’s cities on both coasts and in between. They insisted that what we were seeing was ‘mostly peaceful’ protests and that Donald Trump and his evil allies were defaming decent Americans who just want social justice. Now they want to denounce these riots, but there is a problem: Harris is a financial supporter of the rioters she now claims to denounce.”

“Yes, that’s right, the Democrats’ vice presidential candidate was a huckster for a bail fund that sought to free violent criminals who were rioting on the streets of Minneapolis, and she was very effective at it.”

“In the wake of deadly fires and looting, Harris asked her five million plus Twitter followers to donate money to bail out the ‘protesters’ [criminals] arrested in the riots.”

Kamala wouldn’t want to help out any of the small business people who lost everything at the hands of these neo-fascist criminals…, she wants you to send in your hard-earned money to help get these neo-fascist criminals released from custody so they can go right back to destroying and looting more small businesses, and hurting more innocent people.

“Let’s meet a few of the beneficiaries of her [Kamala’s] largesse [generosity], shall we?”

“Fox 9 News in Minneapolis did the research for us. [That’s the kind of research MrEricksonRules likes!]”

“Here are a few of the criminals they found Harris did a solid for.”

“Among those bailed out by the Minnesota Freedom Fund (MFF) is a suspect who shot at police, a woman accused of killing a friend, and a twice convicted sex offender, according to court records reviewed by the FOX 9 Investigators.”

“According to attempted murder charges, Jaleel Stallings shot at members of a SWAT Team during the riots in May. Police recovered a modified pistol that looks like an AK-47. MFF paid $75,000 in cash to get Stallings out of jail.”

“Darnika Floyd is charged with second degree murder, for stabbing a friend to death. MFF paid $100,000 cash for her release.”

“Christopher Boswell, a twice convicted rapist, is currently charged with kidnapping, assault, and sexual assault in two separate cases. MFF paid $350,000 in cash for his release.”

And these are just a few of the many, many criminals Kamala sought to get released so they could get back to their business of destroying these cities and innocent lives.

“Kamala Harris and her friends in the corporate media, otherwise known as the propaganda arm of the Democratic Party [and fake news], will pretend this never happened and they are counting on voters to be too ignorant to know that it did.”

Definitely no shortage of ignorant voters!

“Harris was so eager to be on the rioters’ team that she literally raised money for them in the hopes that they could be released and foster further mayhem.”

And that’s what she thought was a good idea?

“That on its own would be bad enough. But the fact that she is now attempting to pretend she was against all of this violence, and looting, and arson, and destruction from the get go is an insulting joke. Did Harris really think that peaceful protesters obeying the rules were the ones arrested in Minneapolis? Of course she didn’t. She just assumed that justifying the unrest would help Democrats’ political chances. Now that this has been shown to be false, she is trying to change her position. But it’s way too late for that.”

“The American people aren’t stupid, they know exactly where Joe Biden, Kamala Harris and the Democratic Party stood on the riots.”

“They stood side by side with the rioters.”

“That they have now cynically come to regret that position is, I suppose, a good thing. But it does not erase the harm done in lives, property, and opportunity that their approval of rioting did.”

“We know whose side they were on, and it wasn’t the police.”

And it wasn’t on the side of law-abiding citizens either.

“The American people will not forget that.”

I hope not.

Looting…, it’s not just for criminals anymore…, radical liberals, Marxists, and opportunists in general like it too!

Natalie Escobar for National Public Radio (NPR), reports on “One author’s argument in defense of looting.”

Hmmm…, someone who feels they can defend looting?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KKYpS_Ro13U

I’m not sure why anyone would want to defend that, but be that as it may…

“In the past months of demonstrations for Black lives, there has been a lot of hand-wringing about looting. And just this week, rioters have burned buildings and looted stores in Kenosha, Wis., following the police shooting of Jacob Blake, to which Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson has said: ‘Peaceful protesting is a constitutionally protected form of free speech. Rioting is not.’”

I would say the rioting and the looting have been downplayed and, even ignored, to a great extent by the complicit, liberal propaganda, news media, who have followed the lead of their democrat friends and democrat co-conspirators.

I you recall, the democrats made no mention of the civil unrest happening across our country at their convention.

Propaganda by omission.

If we (the democrats) don’t acknowledge it, or talk about it, it didn’t happen.

“Writer Vicky Osterweil’s book, ‘In Defense of Looting,’ came out on Tuesday. When she finished it, back in April, she wrote (rather presciently [with foresight]) that ‘a new energy of resistance is building across the country.’”

aloot 16

aloot 14

Please note that Vicky Osterweil used to be Willie Osterweil, just in case Vicky looked familiar.

aloot 12

aloot 13

“Now, as protests and riots continue to grip cities, she argues that looting is a powerful tool to bring about real, lasting change in society.”

aloot 20

Oh…, it’s going to bring about change alright…, but not the kind of change that any of the looters are going to like.

They are not doing themselves or any associated “movement” they may have any favors.

“The rioters who smash windows and take items from stores, she says, are engaging in a powerful tactic that questions the justice of ‘law and order,’ and the distribution of property and wealth in an unequal society.”

Otherwise known as “stealing.”

aloot 1

Vicky apparently doesn’t know it, or doesn’t care, but these are the same principles that were promoted by the Nazi’s prior to World War II.

Natalie Escobar continues, “I spoke with Osterweil about this summer’s riots, the common narratives surrounding looting, and why ‘nonviolence’ can be a misleading term.”

No…, I would say that “nonviolence” is a pretty understandable word that means something not involving violence.

“For people who haven’t read your book [and that would be 99.999999% of America], how do you define looting?”

“’When I use the word looting, I mean the mass expropriation of property, mass shoplifting during a moment of upheaval or riot.’”

Ha!

“Mass shoplifting!”

That would be “stealing,” in other words.

‘“That’s the thing I’m defending. I’m not defending any situation in which property is stolen by force. It’s not a home invasion, either. It’s about a certain kind of action that’s taken during protests and riots.”

So, breaking windows and breaking down doors isn’t considered “stolen by force” in Osterweil’s opinion?

Escobar continued by asking, “Is Looting a Loaded Word?”

Vicky Osterweil responded, ‘“Looting is a highly racialized word from its very inception in the English language. It’s taken from Hindi, lút, which means ‘goods’ or ‘spoils,’ and it appears in an English colonial officer’s handbook [on ‘Indian Vocabulary’] in the 19th century.”

Excuse me, Vicky…, but, so what?

What does the word being taken from a Hindi word have to do with your claim that the word is highly racialized?

I don’t view the word “looting,” or “looter” to be racial at all, and I don’t think most people do either.

I view the word “looter” negatively…, but that’s about it.

aloot 15

“Can you talk about rioting as a tactic? What are the reasons people deploy it as a strategy?”

‘“It does a number of important things. It gets people what they need for free immediately, which means that they are capable of living and reproducing their lives without having to rely on jobs or a wage—which, during COVID times, is widely unreliable or, particularly in these communities is often not available, or it comes at great risk. That’s looting’s most basic tactical power as a political mode of action.’”

Ha, ya!

aloot 21

How are these people supposed to live without 15 pairs of Air Jordan’s?

How are these people supposed to live without 25 Rolexes?

How are these people supposed to survive without a couple big screen TVs?

I mean, c’mon…, let’s be reasonable!

‘“It also attacks the very way in which food and things are distributed. It attacks the idea of property, and it attacks the idea that in order for someone to have a roof over their head or have a meal ticket, they have to work for a boss, in order to buy things that people just like them somewhere else in the world had to make under the same conditions. It points to the way in which that’s unjust.’”

Excuse me, Vicky…, but it’s called MAKING A LIVING!

It’s what most people have to do, unless you spend all of your time “protesting,” rioting, looting, or playing video games during your downtime, while living with mommy, mommy and daddy, grandma, grandpa, or grandma and grandpa.

‘“And the reason that the world is organized that way, obviously, is for the profit of the people who own the stores and the factories. So, you get to the heart of that property relation, and demonstrate that without police and without state oppression, we can have things for free.’”

aloot 22

Huh!  Ya…, we could all have these things for free.  If it wasn’t for the evil people who own the stores and factories, we could all just pick the big screen TVs off of the big screen TV trees!

aloot 25

‘“Importantly, I think especially when it’s in the context of a Black uprising like the one we’re living through now, it also attacks the history of whiteness and white supremacy. The very basis of property in the U.S. is derived through whiteness and through Black oppression, through the history of slavery and settler domination of the country.”’

Ya…, I don’t know of ANY black people who actually own anything, or ANY black people who aren’t oppressed!

Please, give us all a break from your idiotic, racial, stupidness.

aloot 24

‘“Looting strikes at the heart of property, of whiteness and of the police. It gets to the very root of the way those three things are interconnected. And, also it provides people with an imaginative sense of freedom and pleasure and helps them imagine a world that could be. And I think that’s a part of it that doesn’t really get talked about—that riots and looting are experienced as sort of joyous and liberatory.’”

aloot 9

aloot 3

Wow…, where do I begin here?

aloot 23

First, YOU, Vicky, racialize the situation by negatively stereotyping both Blacks and Whites.

Secondly, when you say, “And, also it [looting] provides people with an imaginative sense of freedom and pleasure,” I honestly want to throw-up.

And then you go on to say, “And I think that’s a part of it that doesn’t really get talked about—that riots and looting are experienced as sort of joyous and liberatory.’”

I can tell you, Vicky, that riots and looting are not a “joyous” occasion for those who get assaulted, or even killed, while attempting to protect their livelihood and their property.

I can tell you, Vicky, that riots and looting are not a “joyous” occasion for people to see their community burn to the ground, taking jobs and places to shop and do business with it.

“What are some of the most common myths and tropes that you hear about looting?”

aloot 6

aloot 4aloot 5

‘“One of the ones that’s been very powerful, that’s both been used by Donald Trump and Democrats, has been the outside agitator myth, that the people doing the riots are coming from the outside.’”

This is not a myth, and it has been demonstrated and documented to be absolutely true on numerous occasions during many of these riots.

‘“Another one is that looters are just acting as consumers. Why are they taking flat screen TVs instead of rice and beans? Like, if they were just surviving, it’d be one thing, but they’re taking liquor. All these tropes [a figurative or metaphorical use of a word or expression] come down to claiming that the rioters and the looters don’t know what they’re doing. They’re acting, you know, in a disorganized way, maybe an ‘animalistic’ way [definitely in an “animalistic” way]. But the history of the movement for liberation in America is full of looters and rioters. They’ve always been a part of our movement.’”

And “The history of the movement for liberation in America” IS NOT “full of looters and rioters, and they [rioting and looting] have NOT “always been a part of our movement.”

I would challenge you, Vicky, to actually document these fraudulent and libelous claims against our American heritage.

‘“There’s also another factor, which is anti-Blackness and contempt for poor people who want to live a better life…’”

What in thee hell are you talking about?!

I don’t know anyone who has “contempt for poor people who want to live a better life.”

In fact, most people admire people who want to make a better life for themselves, as long as it’s legal and through being resourceful and/or through hard work.

‘“One thing about looting is it freaks people out.’”

Uh…, ya…, and pisses them off in most cases as well.

‘“But in terms of potential crimes that people can commit against the state, it’s basically nonviolent. You’re mass shoplifting. Most stores are insured; it’s just hurting insurance companies on some level. It’s just money. It’s just property. It’s not actually hurting any people.’”

aloot 7

Well, Miss Vicky, I must say your level of confusion is quite impressive!

I guess if you have never created something through hard work and sacrifice, you can’t appreciate its value.

And, “It’s not actually hurting any people,” except the owners, like I just mentioned, the people who worked at these places who are now out of jobs, and the people who may have liked patronizing these businesses, which may or may not ever reopen.

No…, it’s not actually “hurting” any people.

Idiot.

ANTIFA and BLM are sooo brave!

Yes, my friends, these two domestic terrorist groups, and anyone else who hides their ugly behavior behind their “right to protest” and “social injustice,” seem to display their true colors on a daily basis…, and their true color is yellow!

For the sake of this article, I’ll just refer to these lowlifes as “anti-American neo-fascists and cowardly opportunists.”

achicks 14

If you’ve been following the news, you can see a definite pattern to the attacks by these “anti-American neo-fascists and cowardly opportunists.”

What you’ll notice is they typically never attack anyone who could pose them any threat at all.

achicks 15

They either attack inanimate objects, like buildings, stores, businesses and statues, or they attack old men, old women, young girls, boys, or anyone when they outnumber the person by at least five to one.

achicks 1

achicks 4

Like I said, these “anti-American neo-fascists and cowardly opportunists” are sooo brave.

Below are some actual recent headlines from the news that demonstrate what I’m talking about:

“GRAPHIC VIDEO: 71-year-old man reportedly suffers broken jaw, blow to head as he defends Kenosha business.”

“Girlfriend of Portland man attacked: ‘They were trying to fight people.’”

“Woman Attacked at Philadelphia Church During Live-Streamed Mass.”

“92-year-old woman randomly attacked in Gramercy Park, Manhattan.”

“Elderly woman attacked, set on fire in Brooklyn.”

“Retired NYPD sergeant attacked in Garment District beatdown caught on video.”

“Chicago violence: Chilling video shows woman, 85, slammed during robbery.”

“Man attacked by group of 5 people near State Street, left with facial fractures, police say.”

“Aggressive mob of white BLM protesters threaten and film white diners at DC restaurants and DEMAND they raise their fist and show solidarity with them…. or else.”

“Oakland rioters torch courthouse, smash windows as unrest continues.”

“Crowds tear down statues outside Wisconsin State Capitol, attack state senator.”

“Minneapolis stores looted as mayhem erupts after gunman’s suicide.”

See what I mean?

How long do you think this type of behavior will be allowed to go on, unchecked, as the police choose to sit on their hands, and the city prosecutor’s office is just a revolving door for these criminals when they do happen to be apprehended?

I guess we’ll see, won’t we?

achicks 8

Oh, here’s another headline I wanted to share:

“Kenosha: teen charged with murder after two Black Lives Matter protesters killed.”

And so it begins.

achicks 6

Before this chaos across our country is resolved, you’ll be seeing some good people doing some bad things to bad people.

When a vacuum is created in our society regarding law and order, that vacuum will be filled, one way or the other.

The Portland Police are giving up on policing the “far-right???”

Policing the “far-right?”

How about policing the “far-left?!!!”

The last time I checked, Portland was into their 70th or 80th or whatever ridiculous number of straight nights of violence, burning, and looting, courtesy of the neo-fascist, radical, left-wing, rioters.

But, they’re giving up on policing the far-right?

How about even beginning to police the far-left?!

According to Andy Campbell for HuffPost [HuffPost is a liberal American news website], “The Portland Police Bureau [PPB] appears to have all but given up on policing the far-right factions brawling in the Oregon city’s streets, despite a recent escalation in violence that has seen those extremists throw explosives, brandish guns and in one case fire them at other protesters.”

apolice 1

“It’s common to see far-right extremist groups like the ‘Proud Boys’ exchanging blows with counter-protesters in Portland. They’ve been doing that for years, often as PPB officers watched until a riot was officially declared and then police cleared the streets using tear gas and other munitions.”

I must admit, I was not aware of these confrontations between the left and the right groups amid the rioting in Portland.

For some reason, it was a well-kept secret by the media.

And this is the first I’ve heard of “the proud boys” as well.

“But over the weekend, police took an entirely hands-off approach to the fighting, even as the demonstrations grew more violent than ever.”

Excuse me, but, you’re saying the Portland police taking a “hands-off approach” with the violence is news?

Just sayin’.

“As officers stood by on Saturday, the ‘Proud Boys’ and their far-right friends attacked and intimidated anti-fascist protesters using paintball guns, mace, fireworks, aluminum bats and various firearms, according to The Washington Post.”

The term “anti-fascist protesters,” which is used here, is a complete misnomer.

These radical, left-wing, agitators, are neither “anti-fascists” nor
protesters.”

They are neo-fascist terrorists.

And, oh, the poor, poor protesters!

They were being intimidated!!!

Can you imagine?!

The nerve of those ruthless “proud boys!”

apolice 6

Now, getting back to the “far-right” groups, as the HuffPost describes them, “One of them — notorious ‘Proud Boys’ organizer Alan Swinney — was seen pointing a gun at protesters, his finger on the trigger. Another ‘Proud Boy,’ Tusitala “Tiny” Toese, was present, per the Post, in apparent violation of his parole over an attack at a similar demonstration in 2017 (he wasn’t apprehended on Saturday, but a judge on Monday issued a warrant for his arrest).”

apolice 2

Now, this is a new wrinkle to the riot reporting.

They name the members of this “proud boy” group.

I don’t recall the media naming any members of the rioting group, much less attaching a name to the rioting group in general.

It’s obviously a preconceived propaganda strategy of the fake news.

apolice 3

“Meanwhile, over a loudspeaker, police encouraged those present to ‘self-monitor for criminal activity.’ In essence, the PPB had thrown up its hands.”

“Self-monitor?!

Ha!!!

That’s a good one I haven’t heard before!

“In a statement to The Washington Post, the bureau said that officers were tired from responding to ongoing demonstrations against racism and police brutality, which have kept Portland in the national spotlight for weeks. Officers wouldn’t intervene in small skirmishes between ‘willing participants,’ even if the clashes fit the city’s definition of a riot.”

Can you blame them?

Can you blame them one little bit?

The correct answer to these questions is “no,” just in case you were wondering.

‘“Each skirmish appeared to involve willing participants and the events were not enduring in time, so officers were not deployed to intervene,’ the bureau said of Saturday’s events. PPB members have been the focus of over 80 days of violent actions directed at the police, which is a major consideration for determining if police resources are necessary to interject between two groups with individuals who appear to be willingly engaging in physical confrontations for short durations.”

This is an interesting development.

Sooo, what we have here is a type of government sanctioned lawlessness.

Huh.

“Allowing local far-right groups to wreak havoc on the city isn’t a big departure for the PPB. As the ‘Proud Boys’ cheered, officers launched tear gas and other munitions at anti-fascist counter-protesters [Isn’t this a double negative?  Who are we exactly talking about here?] during a rally in 2017, which left one antifa protester with a gas canister lodged in his head.”

Ouch!

No pictures of this, of course.

And what’s this “allowing local far-right groups to wreak havoc on the city” stuff?

It would appear that the “far-right groups” are wreaking havoc on the neo-fascist terrorists, not the city.

“Police gave the ‘Proud Boys’ an escort out of the city following a rally in 2018 that saw the far-right demonstrators outnumbered by anti-fascists. A key officer had a friendly and ongoing relationship with the leader of ‘Proud Boys’ affiliate group ‘Patriot Prayer,’ judging from texts obtained by Willamette Week.”

Willamette who?

Is naming this person supposed to lend some kind of credence to the information?

Just sayin’.

Anyway, “But relinquishing the act of policing to the brawlers themselves is both new and concerning, especially given the context: Local extremists have escalated their violent tactics in recent weeks, brazenly introducing guns and a lot more weaponry to the melee.”

“Local right-wing protester Skylor Jernigan [Here they go naming names again.], who attended a conservative ‘flag wave’ demonstration in Portland earlier this month alongside Swinney, allegedly shot at Black Lives Matter protesters from inside a car. Nobody was hit.”

“He was later arrested and charged with two felony counts of unlawful use of a weapon.”

This definitely seems like a case of “selective enforcement” of the law here.

“During the same event, Swinney was seen spraying protesters with chemical irritants and shooting them with rounds from a paintball gun. He faced no immediate consequence for those displays or for pointing a pistol at protesters this past Saturday.”

Nor should he, based on the prior treatment of “the protesters.”

I feel like it’s time to interject a couple applicable sayings here:

“What’s good for the goose is good for the gander,” for example.

And, “What goes around comes around.”

apolice 9

Portland is a HOT mess!

Yes, folks…, Portland, Oregon.

Portland, Oregon is named after Portland, Maine. The Oregon settlement began to be populated in the 1830s, near the end of the Oregon Trail. Its water access provided convenient transportation of goods, and the timber industry was a major force in the city’s early economy. The city’s economy experienced an industrial boom during World War II.  Beginning in the 1960s, Portland became noted for its growing progressive political values, earning it a reputation as a bastion of counterculture.

“Counterculture,” huh?

A counterculture is defined as “a culture whose values and norms of behavior differ substantially from those of mainstream society, often in opposition to mainstream cultural norms.”

And, so it began.

Which brings us all the way up to 2020.

Brie Stimson of Fox News asks, “Has Antifa hijacked Portland’s police reform efforts?”

I would say the answer to that question would be “no.”

Antifa and the BLM organization didn’t “hijack” anything…, they instigated the whole thing and then took it to a whole new level…, a level which the liberal local government was more than happy to allow and support.

aport 10

“Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler Thursday evening condemned the actions of rioters who attempted to set fire to a police precinct and blocked the exits while officers were inside.”

apot 16

‘“When you commit arson with an accelerent in an attempt to burn down a building that is occupied by people who you have intentionally trapped inside, you are not demonstrating, you are attempting to commit murder,’ Wheeler said in a news conference with Portland Police Chief Chuck Lovell.”

‘“Don’t think for a moment that you are if you are participating in this activity, you are not being a prop for the reelection campaign of Donald Trump — because you absolutely are,’ he said. ‘You are creating the B-roll film that will be used in ads nationally to help Donald Trump during this campaign. If you don’t want to be part of that, then don’t show up.’”

Ya, Mayor Wheeler…, and beside committing the heinous crime of “being a prop for the reelection campaign of Donald Trump,” ISN’T ATTEMPTED MURDER A CRIME AS WELL???!!!

AND HOW ABOUT ARSON?!

aport 11

ISN’T ARSON A CRIME IN PORTLAND?!

HOW ABOUT HOLDING THESE PEOPLE ACCOUNTABLE FOR THE REAL CRIMES THEY ARE COMMITTING?!

How about that Mr. Mayor?

“A riot was declared Wednesday evening when agitators descended upon the Portland Police Bureau’s East Precinct building, spray-painted over security cameras, broke a glass door with a 2×4, lit a fire using an accelerant and threw fireworks and other objects at officers, according to FOX 12 in Portland.”

“Police said that a truck also attempted to run over officers.”

Again…, attempted murder.

“The front doors of the precinct were barricaded before the fire was started with more than 20 officers and civilian employees inside, police said, according to FOX 12.”

“Officers used tear gas to disperse the rioters and at least eight people were arrested. A federal court order bars police from using tear gas unless a riot is declared.”

“Unless a riot is declared?”

Is that like, “One, two, three, four, I declare a thumb war?”

‘“I believe that city staff could have died last night,’ Wheeler said.”

Excuse my French…, but, “No $h#t, Mr. Mayor!”

Portland’s police have been out there with both hands tied behind their backs for over two months!

aport 13

‘“I cannot and I will not tolerate that. This is not peaceful protests. This is not advocacy to advance reforms.’”

Oh, now you won’t tolerate it?

Hasn’t your wonderful city had violent riots in it for like SEVENTY NIGHTS IN A ROW???!!!

aport 12

Peaceful protests went out the window over two months ago.

“Wheeler also urged peaceful protesters to avoid gatherings that could turn destructive or violent, according to Oregon Live.”

‘“If you are a nonviolent demonstrator and you don’t want to be part of intentional violence, please stay away from these areas,’ Wheeler said. ‘Our community must say that this violence is not Portland, that these actions do not reflect our values and these crimes are distracting from reform, not advancing.’”

aport 3

Ha!

That’s a good one, Mayor Wheeler.

Where you been for the last two months?

And what are you talking about with all of this “our community” stuff?

The peaceful and law-abiding businesses and people in your “community” have all been burned out, looted, and run out of town.

The rioters you’re condemning now are what’s left of “your community.”

Enjoy.

“The clashes between thousands of protesters and federal agents sent by the Trump administration to guard the federal courthouse stopped after an agreement between Democratic Gov. Kate Brown and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security that called for the agents to begin drawing down their presence in Portland’s downtown on July 30.”

“Then some instigators moved on to other police buildings across the city to cause problems.”

“Wednesday night’s violence in a residential neighborhood on the east side of the city began after a group of about 100 people [I prefer to call them terrorists, or criminals] gathered in a nearby park for a rally advertised on social media by the group Pacific Northwest Youth Liberation Front.”

Cute.

Is that like the YMCA or something?

“[Their] slogan is, ‘No cops. No prisons. Total abolition.’”

Well, I guess not.

“The group then marched to the precinct.”

‘“Hurting people and trying to trap people in a building and burn them up, it’s just completely awful,’ Portland Fire & Rescue Lt. Damon Simmons reiterated in the news conference, according to FOX 12.”

Reeeeeeeeally?

aport 8

Thank you for that bit of insight, Lt. Simmons.

I can see you must be a real up-and-comer in the department.

“Wheeler said the city anticipates ‘additional planned attacks on public buildings’ in the coming days and said he was giving the police leeway to do what they needed to do to counter those plans as long as it can be done without threatening peaceful protesters.”

aport 9

“On Wednesday, Portland Police Chief Chuck Lovell said rioters aren’t forwarding the cause of racial injustice protesters. ‘Portlanders need to send a strong message that enough is enough,’ he said. ‘This movement is really powerful, but the violence has taken away from it.’”

Ya think?!

Yes, Portlanders…, we will only put up with our city being burned, looted, graffitied, and officers and other people being attacked, for seventy straight nights!

That’s our limit!

We draw the line at seventy-one nights!

If these liberals weren’t so sad, they’d be hilarious…, but no one is laughing.

Who’s paying to destroy America?

Lara Logan, of Fox News, says, and I also believe, that, “Paid professional anarchists are turning peaceful protests into riots.”

She believes these anti-America elements and agitators are hijacking protesters and groups, who are supposedly functioning in the name of social justice, and using them instead to carry out their Marxist agendas.

adestroy 14

They are going by the same playbook, and using the same tactics, that our government agencies and groups employ when trying to cause unrest and regime change in other foreign countries, according to Logan, who has discussed this with those very people.

The term “color revolution” is the term that has been used, in the last couple of years, to describe these techniques that are used to overthrow a government.

adestroy 4

Logan also points to graffiti she has seen recently, “ACAB,” which she has also seen in other countries.  “ACAB” stands for “all cops are bastards.”  And they mean “all cops.”  White cops, Black cops, Hispanic cops, Asian cops…, all cops, regardless of race.

adestroy 1

adestroy 2

adestroy 3

It’s not about racial injustice for these Marxists…, it’s about creating anarchy in our country and destroying America.

These riots are not just protesters venting their frustration.

Again…, these riots are being instigated by paid professionals.

The real question we should be asking is, “Who’s paying?”

Who’s paying for this destruction of America?

The really sad part about this is I believe the answer is already known.

How could “we” not at this point?

And if “we” know, why aren’t “we” holding these people accountable?

Is it for the same reason “we” don’t seem to hold any of these upper level democrats/liberals, and deep state vermin, accountable for their actions?

I guess that tells us that the democrat’s/liberal’s side, and the anti-America agitator’s side, and the people financing this anti-America activity side, ARE ONE IN THE SAME SIDE!

adestroy 10

IT’S TIME FOR PEOPLE TO STAND UP AND PICK A SIDE IN THIS FIGHT!

EITHER YOU WANT TO SEE AMERICA SURVIVE AS A BEACON OF FREEDOM IN THIS WORLD, OR YOU DON’T.

EITHER YOU WANT A GOVERNMENT “BY THE PEOPLE AND FOR THE PEOPLE,” OR YOU WANT TO END UP LIVING UNDER AN OPPRESSIVE COMMUNIST REGIME.  (NOTE: THERE ISN’T ANY OTHER KIND OF COMMUNIST REGIME.)

The words of Abraham Lincoln, to honor the soldiers that sacrificed their lives in order “that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth,” were spoken at Gettysburg, but these words apply as well to the countless soldiers that died for the cause of democracy in the following 150 years.

adestroy 11

EITHER YOU WANT TO SEE AMERICA, AS WE KNOW IT, PERISH FROM THE EARTH, OR YOU DON’T.

Our “big city” police forces have been liberally neutered!

The days of Harry Callahan (Dirty Harry), Riggs and Murtaugh, and Elliot Ness and The Untouchables are over!

Hollywood is definitely going to have to update how they produce these cop movies from now on.

Nowadays, all cops do is stand around and act as human road blocks or barricades, while they get pelted with all kinds of debris and all kinds of verbal obscenities.

Their hands have literally been tied behind their backs by their liberal democrat mayors.

People can shoot them, shoot at them, run them down with cars, throw deadly objects at them, torch their vehicles, and assault them physically, without having to worry about any type of response…, other than maybe getting arrested, only to be released in less than 24 hours.

These terrorists have destroyed whole police stations without a single shot being fired by the police.

Yes…, rest in peace Dirty Harry…, your days are looooong gone.

I really can’t imagine who would want to be a police officer these days in any big city.

I heard President Trump react to the whole rioting situation last night. He called for more National Guard troops to be deployed as well as regular military troops.

I’m sorry Mr. President, but unless these troops are allowed to use some sort of force to protect themselves and deter criminal behavior, we’re just putting more human road blocks and human barricades out there, and putting their lives at risk as well.

According to Chris Irvine of Fox News, “Rioters target police across US; 4 shot in St. Louis, 1 in Vegas, Bronx hit-and-run caught on video.”

“Police officers across the U.S. were targeted in shootings and vehicular attacks Monday night as protests continued in major cities for the seventh night despite President Trump’s vow to clamp down on violence.”

“The demonstrations on Monday marked a week of unrest since unarmed black man George Floyd died when a white Minneapolis officer jammed his knee into the back his neck in a shocking incident caught on video. Despite tens of thousands marching peacefully in demonstrations against police brutality and systemic racism, protests over Floyd’s death have been nonetheless overshadowed by violence, looting and vandalism that has engulfed U.S. cities.”

“In St. Louis, Mo., Monday night, four police officers were shot during protests in the city’s downtown area, two in the leg, one in the foot and one in the arm.”

“In Las Vegas, Nevada, an officer was shot in the head at the Circus Circus Hotel and Casino on the Strip. A source told ‘8News Now’ that the officer was in a fight with another suspect when someone walked up behind and shot the officer, who is now on life support.”

“Meanwhile, in Richmond, Va., two police officers and a suspect were injured after a shooting, according to NBC12.”

“RPD officers were called to investigate a report of an armed person on Semmes Avenue early Tuesday morning. When they arrived, gunfire erupted. The two cops and the suspect were taken to local hospitals.”

“In Buffalo, N.Y., an SUV plowed through a group of law enforcement during a Floyd demonstration, injuring at least two officers.”

“Video posted by a witness showed a line of officers, backed up by an armored personnel carrier, rushing and tackling a man who was being interviewed by a man with a TV camera about 9:30 p.m.”

“Moments later, officers ran as the SUV barreled through a cluster, with at least one appeared to go under the vehicle’s wheels. The SUV was then able to drive round an armored vehicle and speed off.”

“In a similar incident in the Bronx in New York City, an NYPD officer investigating reports of break-ins was struck by a vehicle early Tuesday in a hit-and-run. The officer is in a stable condition.”

“And in another incident in the Bronx, an NYPD officer was attacked by several men as witnesses recorded the incident.”

The incident was well recorded, of course, but no one managed to come to the defense of the officer.

“The latest wave of protests came hours after President Trump vowed in a Rose Garden speech to restore law and order, and police under federal command forced back peaceful demonstrators with tear gas so he could walk to a church near the White House known as ‘The Church of the President’ that was set on fire during Sunday night’s rioting.”

A World War II memorial was desecrated by these terrorists as well. What does a World War II memorial, honoring soldiers who gave their lives for this country and the free world, have to do with protesting police brutality?

The answer is it has nothing to do with it…, but then again, these terrorists are actually carrying out their destruction because they hate America, and want to inflict as much pain on America and her people as possible…, all under the guise of some political protest.

Steve Keeley of FOX 29 News, Philadelphia, reports that, “A looter was shot and killed by the owner of a gun shop in South Philadelphia, police say.”

“Officials say the owner of the gun store, Firing Line Inc, was inside his business guarding it because they had experienced a break-in attempt on Sunday evening.”

“When a crew of looters reportedly attempted to break in, the store’s owner saw them on surveillance video and then heard them coming up the steps of the store.”

‘“One of the individuals that broke into the property, pointed a handgun at him,’ Chief Inspector Scott Smalls told FOX 29’s Steve Keeley. ‘And that’s when the store owner fired his own weapon — striking the one perpetrator at least one time in the head and he collapsed, dropping his gun between his legs.’”

“Medics pronounced that man dead at the scene. At least two or three other individuals involved in the attempted looting fled the scene.”

“The investigation remains underway.”

Yes…, “the investigation remains underway,” and if he’s lucky, the shop owner won’t be charged with murder for defending himself or his property.

These days, we all see that only law-abiding people are held to the letter of the law.

The rest of these scumbags, at the bottom, and the top, of the liberal food chain, seem to get a pass.

Maybe the cops should go back to harassing Christians because they’re trying to attend church during this whole virus thing.  That seems to be more their speed these days.

To top it all off, I have seen where Sleepy Joe Biden’s staff, as well as other democrat politicians, and the liberal Hollywood elites are donating literally millions of dollars to help these terrorists post bail.

Like I have asked before…, whose side are these people on?

I think it’s pretty obvious whose side they’re on…, and it ain’t ours.
