Two days ago a policeman in Minnesota, who was well known for his brutality, murdered a black man, George Floyd, by suffocating him during an arrest for allegedly paying with a fake $20 bill. (video, longer version) It was one of many such murders.
Spontaneous peaceful protests against the regime ensued.
Yesterday afternoon the regime sent in its provocateurs. One of allegedly six was a white man in black cloths, masked with a professional gas mask and carrying a black umbrella. He was filmed as he started to smash shop windows even while protesters told him not do do that. (video). When people got suspicious of him the man walked away, his umbrella still up. (video). He was later identified as a member of the St. Paul police department.
Into the night the protests grew and took on a socialist tone when people started to communalize the goods offered at a local Target market known for its extensive survival (sic). Later the local McDonald’s restaurant was also liberated by fire.
The regime gave up. Police fled from the 3rd Precinct in a large convoy (video, video). Soon after that the precinct was set on fire. (video)
These are not race riots. Many of the protesters are young people of white color. (video, video)
Throughout the night more buildings were set on fire.
The local regime governor order his national guard to intervene.
The president threatened to kill the unarmed protesters:
…These THUGS are dishonoring the memory of George Floyd, and I won’t let that happen. Just spoke to Governor Tim Walz and told him that the Military is with him all the way. Any difficulty and we will assume control but, when the looting starts, the shooting starts. Thank you!
Trump’s wordplay had an historically racist undertone:
“When the looting starts, the shooting starts,” is a threat coined by Miami Police Chief Walter Headley, who promised violent reprisals on black protesters in 1967. He also said: “We don’t mind being accused of police brutality. They haven’t seen anything yet.”
Twitter marked the president’s tweet as ‘glorifying violence’ but did not remove it.
