The claims are getting more and more absurd from the Left. MSNBC’s Joy Reid is not spreading the claim that white supremacists were behind the riots in Minneapolis. Disregard the fact you see locals and radical leftists rioting and looting, Reid’s apparently got the real scoop and apparently so does CNN’s Josh Campbell.
Josh Campbell recently tweeted the following: “Minnesota officials say many of the violent protesters who have caused widespread damage are from out of state. Authorities have been monitoring alleged criminals online, including postings by suspected white supremacists trying to incite violence.” CNN Host Reza Aslan then later amplified the tweet by saying it is the Trump Supporters who are burning and looting.
Now in the tweet Campbell doesn’t actually say that white supremacists are behind the riots. He only says they are monitoring the websites. In security reports, it is indicated that most of the hard-core protests in Minneapolis are actually far-left or anarchists, and that far-right groups have not yet made a significant appearance. Leggat, security consultant, said that looting is usually done by locals, people with no criminal record who just get caught up in the moment.
Direct conflict has come from both local and outside groups. Many are targeting banks, chain-type businesses and even luxury cars as symbols of corrupt institutions. Even peaceful protests can turn violent if agitators try to alter or hijack the overall message.
Bill Barr has also confirmed in many places it appears that the violence is organized and driven by anarchic and left extremist groups using Antifa-like tactics. Then the Twin Cities DSA has “Freedom Funds’” having people donate for bail…wait a second. The local DSA is now asking people to donate for white supremacists? On top of all this, Josh Campbell said his colleague Omar Jiminez, who is black and latino, was arrested by police the other day and forgot to mention that the white crew was ALSO arrested. But he tried to make a point that he, as a white male, was treated “much differently.”
I would first love to know why white supremacists would be rioting over a white cop killing a black suspect? Too many twistable assumptions to get a workable explanation here. Second of all, this is all happening and being reported by Democrat governors, Democrat senators, Democrat media, and Democrat protestors. Yet they’d still love to twist the blame and point the finger at President Trump. I wouldn’t be surprised if there were some tweets or white supremacist sites encouraging these groups to do bad things but they are not organizing the riots. They are not burning communities to the ground and attacking the police. This is purely antifa and other left-wing marxist groups.
It’s the white supremacists, it’s Trump, it’s everyone but the Liberals. Shocker.
