Minnesota Lt. Governor Peggy Flanagan announced that the people who were looting department stores, setting them and other buildings on fire, firebombing police stations and cars, throwing glass bottles and bricks at the police, etc. were “white supremacists” and out-of-staters. She apparently spent hours checking I.D.s during the riots in Minneapolis.
After watching quite a bit of the rioting on TV, I’ve concluded that she may have gotten that wrong. So far I haven’t spotted a single one of the violent criminals doing these things sporting a “Trump 2020” hat or t-shirt, a Confederate flag, or any such thing. In fact, there does not appear to be a single likely Trump voter among them. Lots and lots of Antifa thugs and Black Lives Matter signs everywhere, but no sign of white supremacists surrounded by thousands of rioting (mostly) black people. I imagine it would be easy to pick out some guy in a white KKK hood in such a crowd. But what do I know? I’m not a professional politician like the Lt. governor of Minnesota.
One thing I’ve learned from watching this is that Democrats are very, very good at stealing. Stealing the election in November should be a piece of cake.
(I’m picking on Democrats here because the main perpetrators of the riots — inner city welfare parasites, Antifa, and Black Lives Matter — are integral parts of the Democrat Party machine. That’s why all those Democrat mayors do nothing when Antifa beats the crap out of taxpayers attending an Ann Coulter lecture, setting fires to buildings at UC-Berkeley whenever a conservative is invited to speak, etc. As most readers of this blog know, I am not exactly a fan of the “party of Lincoln” either).
