REALLY?!? 

Are you honestly asking that? Do you have no idea of the violent, ugly history of the Civil War, the protests required so blacks could sit in the front of the bus or eat in a restaurant with whites? How it cost them at the time ~$150 just to vote when they were finally allowed to?

 

And to be absolutely clear - they are PROTESTING, not rioting. The agitators come in to distract simple minded people.

Exactly Trump's point, from his speech, cut out by some of your MSM.

 

My administration is fully committed that for George and his family justice will be served. He will not have died in vain,” Trump said. “We cannot let the righteous cries of peaceful protesters to be drown out by an angry mob. The biggest victims of the rioting are peace-loving citizens in our poorest communities, and as their president, I will fight to keep them safe.”

So he gases PEACEFUL protesters by the church across the street from the White House, walks over, holds the bible up, click, photo taken, walks back to the WH and with bangs heard in the background, h

Amazing how hypocritical the US is. Supports protests in Hk but not in USA. Threatens sanctions etc if China imposes national security laws in Hk but is ok using the military against protesters in the USA.

And with all the rot in politics, one could even speculate that far right white supremacists could be disguised in such gatherings as antifas or whatever just to manipulate public opinion ? 

Oh please, they were not white supremacists dressed up as antifa, it was Antifa outright:

 

"On Sunday night, New York's top terrorism cop, Deputy Commissioner for Intelligence and Counterterrorism John Miller, detailed his office's analysis and investigation into why the New York City protests have become so violent and damaging at times.

 

"No. 1, before the protests began," Miller said, "organizers of certain anarchist groups set out to raise bail money and people who would be responsible to be raising bail money, they set out to recruit medics and medical teams with gear to deploy in anticipation of violent interactions with police."

He added, "They prepared to commit property damage and directed people who were following them that this should be done selectively and only in wealthier areas or at high-end stores run by corporate entities."

 

"And they developed a complex network of bicycle scouts to move ahead of demonstrators in different directions of where police were and where police were not for purposes of being able to direct groups from the larger group to places where they could commit acts of vandalism including the torching of police vehicles and Molotov cocktails where they thought officers would not be."

Lesson? He'll get both of them fired. Reality is that both of these gentlemen would be better presidents than the man hiding in the bunker. And his next election opponent. Presidents are there to show leadership, unite people, put the well-being of the citizens first. They don't send army on their own people. Despearate dictators trying to cling to power do that.

 

That said - I am absolutely not supporting the lawless gangs smashing, burning and robbing anything that they can get their hands on.

it's possible that could postpone the November elections, suspend the constitution? 

It's possible that 45 will try and who is going to stop him if he does?

There are left extremists as well. It's all sickening, and by the posts defending this as a non-racist protest, it just shows how absolutely divided this whole issue has become.

That's why I said 'partly'.

What is the possibility that elements of the right wing, basically hijacked the protests, and turned them violent, which then encouraged the rampant looting and rioting. It would not take much with the powder keg environment, the anger towards law enforcement that already existed throughout the US, and the graphic Floyd murder caught on video. The more I consider the possibility, the more it makes sense. It feeds right into trumps agenda. Distract from a massive Covid failure, and a stagnant, do nothing presidency at this point, and make himself look strong and decisive. Could have been sponsored by elements from within the administration, to any of the national security agencies, even the CIA or NSA. Who knows? The protests sure started out peaceful, and quickly degenerated.

 

Makes one wonder. These days in America, I believe anything like this kind of thing is possible. It is then so easy to blame the black man, the people of color, the poor and the others. By casting blame, they do not attempt to fix anything, address the inherent issues, discuss the inherent issues, or make lives better. 

 

Is there anything more cynical, than Trump using force to disperse protestors in front of the White House, to walk across the street to a church, and hold up a bible? As if he was a man of God? Wonders never cease. 

this was my thinking as well, Trump is sitting in the white house watching this with glee.  he relishes this opportunity
