Anyone into fringe politics should oppose this. A “right-wing” administration will target the Antifa, and then a “left-wing” administration will target “alt-right/lite” groups, and then the cycle will repeat.
This could set a dangerous precedent.
Even Sean Hannity isn’t going to bat for the pigs who killed George Floyd. Forensic pathologist Dr. Michael Baden’s independent autopsy finds that George Floyd died by homicide caused by asphyxia.
By Jon Parton Courthouse News Service (CN) — As Minneapolis underwent a fourth night of protests over the death of George Floyd, Minnesota Governor Tim Walz said Saturday that most rioters arrested are from outside of the city and sought to take advantage of the chaos.
There’s some pretty hard-core riot footage in this.
Kim predictably nails. What we are experiencing right now is a class-based insurrection against an authoritarian state. The ruling class media (the new clerisy) is trying to deflect attention from that by fueling political/racial/cultural divisions.
There is some pretty hard-core footage of police brutality in this. Apparently, the cops at a police station in Cincinnatti took down the US flag and put up a “thin blue line” flag. Fourth-generation warfare and tribalism have arrived.
They are. And it’s hilarious. By Colin A. Young Metrowest Daily News After a weekend that saw police clash with demonstrators across the country and in downtown Boston, President Donald Trump told governors on a conference call Monday morning that many of them are “weak” and need to […]
The big question is how will the state hit back when the dust clears? Journalist Zaid Jilani compares the looting in the U.S. to the looting that took place in Baghdad after the Iraqi army was disbanded by the Bush administration.
I really hope they’re not just now realizing that. I don’t really consider poor, urban (or rural) blacks to be part of the Blue Tribe. The Red/Blue tribal civil war is between the left and right wings of the upper-middle class, with both sides aligning themselves different factions […]
Who cares if they move away? Fuck ’em. Good riddance. I’m not at all someone who thinks that “tax the rich” is that way to solve the problem of plutocracy. Taxes are merely a means through which the state extracts surplus value from subjects (extortion) in the same […]
Of course. That’s what they did with the uprisings of the 1960s and 1970s. Ryan Grim offers some pretty good commentary on how the corporate class has co-opted the cultural left. I’m glad to see someone who is not on the far right besides me is finally noticing […]
Of course. “Stimulus plans” and “bailouts” work at all levels. Krystal Ball discusses the systematic inequalities as the catalyst of the mass riots over George Floyd’s death.
That’s what the Bircher-types used to say about the urban riots of the 1960s. The Democraps are blaming the insurrection on Russians and white nationalists while Donald Milhous Trump is blaming Antifa and anarchists. Saagar Enjeti blasts the mainstream media for identifying the riots over George Floyd’s death […]
This really is so 1968. Riots, chaos, and space travel. They are absolutely right when they talk about the total abrogation of leadership, “left, right, federal, state, and local,” which they lament but which I think is great. The ruling class is falling.
A few years back, when I used to speak to Alt-Right groups, leftist friends would ask me why I was interested in them. I used to always say, “Just think of them as the Communist Party of the Right.” I even presented what was essentially a Maoist interpretation […]
An emerging crack in the left-coalition? Welcome to America, where everybody hates everyone else. Funky academic and doctoral student at the University of Georgia Irami Osei-Frimpong explains his perspective on Central Park ‘Karen’ Amy Cooper and white feminism.
Newt, what is happening now is blowback against policies that people like you put in place. Remember the “crime bill” passed when you were Speaker of the House? Remember NAFTA, also passed when you were Speaker? Remember the “war on drugs,” of which you were a major champion? […]
Wow. Rising actually interviewed Joel Kotkin. I’m impressed.
The usual finger-pointing begins. Antifa, “Boogaloos,” Three Percenters, Proud Boys, and, of course, the Russians. By COLLEEN LONG, ZEKE MILLER and MICHAEL BALSAMO Associated Press WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. officials are seeking to determine whether extremist groups had infiltrated police brutality protests across the country and deliberately tipped […]
From what I have seen so far, many of the attacks have been directed at localized municipal police targets but where are the attacks on the federal alphabet soup agencies?
Giving cops “qualified immunity” is like giving physicians exemptions from malpractice lawsuits. By C.J. Ciaramella Reason The killing of George Floyd by a Minneapolis police officer on Monday has reignited calls for national reforms to policing, including ending qualified immunity, a legal doctrine that civil liberties groups say has […]
From the owner of an Iranian-American owned restaurant that was vandalized by rioters. As a small business, we’ve been hit very hard during this pandemic. Last night, we were hit even harder. I came to the U.S over 50 years ago from Iran, a country where there is […]
By Troy Southgate People have every right to fight back against the corrupt US system and its brutal mercenaries, but let’s not pretend that police violence is reserved for Black people. At the same time, the Right’s predictable response to Black Lives Matter is to claim that most […]

There is an 8 pm curfew in my city that virtually no one is paying any attention to. A strip mall a block away got looted and torched two nights ago. There was a shooting three blocks from my residence along with a series of dumpster fires and […]
Why not? Those places are mostly just colonies of US Empire anyway. By William Booth and Loveday Morris Washington Post Street protests over the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis went global over the weekend, as demonstrators in London, Berlin and Toronto gathered under banners declaring that Black […]
These kinds of things happen during uprisings. Here in Richmond, there was been a predictable wave of vandalism against Confederate monuments. I don’t think these kinds of actions are a good idea. Attacking and destroying the monuments, flags, places of worship or veneration, temples, sacred books and artifacts, […]
Serious facepalm. By Chris Riotta The Independent A Seattle police officer was seen kneeling on the necks of suspected looters amid protests against the death of George Floyd, who died after an officer kneeled on his neck in now-viral footage. The police department was responding to reports of […]
Between the COVID-19 pandemic and lockdowns, Great Depression Two, the current joke of an election campaign, and now the uprising, is a military dictatorship on the way? It looks like the whole system is failing. By Alan McLeod MintPress News The national security state and the military are […]
Apparently, some cops are defecting to “the other side.” FOX29 Philadelphia CAMDEN COUNTY, N.J. – A very different scene and approach to the protests witnessed in recent days was observed in Camden.

By Austin Williams FOX 29 FLINT TOWNSHIP, Mich. – As demonstrations condemning the death of George Floyd continue across the U.S., some local officers and deputies are being praised for crossing the lines and participating in the protests.
