In the midst of all the #BLM and Antifa destruction and mayhem, a vandal intent on defacing a public statue (in London?) and a man who sets a police car on fire learn the hard lesson:
Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.
BlackLivesMatter riots continue to blaze across America.
Mobs in paroxysms of blind rage and demonic glee topple statues of our Founding Fathers, presidents, and historical figures Confederate or not, which belie the rioters’ ostensible cause of anti-racism.
Tbis is no longer about racism.
What we are witnessing is not just anarchism, it is chaos for chaos’ sake, destruction for the sake of destruction. Like the Taliban in Afghanistan who tore down and defaced Buddhist statues, the rioters today are tearing down historical symbols to obliterate American history itself.
If they could, they would topple the Statue of Liberty.
Amidst all the statue-untoppling, rioting, looting, burning, and occupation of city blocks, mayors and governors do nothing.
Democrats in Congress, especially their leader House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, not only do nothing, they are silent — their silence an unspoken acquiescence and approval. The Republicans are little better.
The only public figure who is vocal in his condemnation of all the anarchy and mayhem is President Trump, but he receives little to no support from his own party.
It is no wonder that the latest Rasmussen poll found that as many as 34% of U.S. likely voters, i.e., one in three, think that civil war is likely sometime in the next five years. 9% believe civil war is “very likely”.
Last year, 31% of Americans thought civil war was likely; the year before, in 2018, it was 11%.
The national phone and online survey of 1,000 likely voters was conducted one June 11 and 14, 2020 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is ± 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence.
WARNING! MIND BLEACH ALERT
As Paul Harvey used to say,
“And now you know the rest of the story”
Yesterday morning, Portland police dismantled the city’s copycat Antifa “autonomous zone”.
The Antifa thugs had occupied what they called their zone overnight.
The chatter on Twitter is that Portland mayor Ed Wheeler, a Demonrat, had the police dismantle the autonomous zone only because the Antifa thugs had set up the zone in the city’s Pearl District right in front of his condo.
Pearl District is Portland’s central business district.
Another Demonrat mayor also did a 180° (I refuse to call it a “change of heart” because it’s not) on the thugs who were vandalizing businesses in downtown Olympia, WA, because her own home was vandalized.
Sean Hannity reports yesterday that Mayor Cheryl Selby “had a change of heart this week regarding the anti-police protests sweeping the nation; labeling the demonstrators ‘domestic terrorists’ after they vandalized her home.”
Mayor Cheryl Selby plaintively whined: “I’m really trying to process this. It’s like domestic terrorism. It’s unfair. It hurts when you’re giving so much to your community.”
Blah, blah, blah.
Meanwhile, Antifa’s “autonomous zone” in Seattle is still there. See:
George Floyd, 46, was the black man who was arrested in Minneapolis on May 25, 2020 for allegedly using counterfeit money to buy cigarettes. We are told that Floyd was then choked to death by police officer Derek Chauvin kneeling on Floyd’s neck for nearly 9 minutes.
Floyd’s death has become the casus belli for violent protests, riots, looting and killing across America (see “America Under Siege: George Floyd rioters burn, loot, kill” ), as well as Antifa terrorists’ occupation of six city blocks in Seattle, WA, as their “autonomous zone” fiefdom.
From Wikipedia (I supplied the bold color emphasis):
The official autopsy classified Floyd’s death as a homicide attributed to cardiopulmonary arrest caused by subdual and restraint. The toxicologist found several psychoactive substances or metabolites in his system, and the medical examiner noted fentanyl intoxication and recent methamphetamine use as significantly contributory to his death, though not the cause. A second autopsy, commissioned by Floyd’s family and performed by Michael Baden, without access to various tissue and fluid samples, found that the “evidence is consistent with mechanical asphyxia as the cause” of death, with neck compression restricting blood flow to the brain, and back compression restricting breathing.
Floyd’s death has also sparked many questions and skepticism about whether we have been told the truth. See, for example, the post by FOTM‘s Deplorable Patriot, “Evidence points to CNN and Shaun King guilty of fabricating George Floyd video“.
I came across this very disturbing video of what appears to be George Floyd’s body on a gurney being carried by police officers and paramedics from an emergency van to, presumably, the hospital. I cannot vouch for the authenticity of the video, other than that the video was tweeted by @SirWilliamScott5.
As you saw for yourself in the video, the George Floyd on the gurney appears to be legless. How can that be?
So I went on the net to see if I can verify that footage of seemingly-legless Floyd on a gurney. I found this Fox8 news video where, beginning at the 0:48 mark, Floyd on a gurney is shown.
I had a GIF made of the Floyd-on-gurney segment, so we can better see if the body was legless or not.
I also took this screenshot from the Fox8 video, and painted red arrows pointing to Floyd’s head and legs.
To me, the body in the Fox8 video does appear to have legs. What do you think?
Questions are also raised about Floyd’s funeral casket.
On June 4, 2020, hundreds attended a memorial service in Minneapolis for Floyd, ignoring all COVID-19 safety rules like wearing masks and 6 ft. social distancing. Here’s CNN’s live stream of the service.
Here’s a meme questioning whether Floyd’s casket looks like a 6′ 7″ body could fit into it.
Below are two other images of the casket from established news sources: Getty Images and Time magazine. Can you compare the length of the casket to the heights of the pall bearers?
Then there is twitterer @SeaShell072 who posted an alleged pic of the body of George Floyd in open casket, which seems to show it’s not Floyd, but a man with much lighter skin color.
@SeaShell072 gives no source for the pic. So I tried to verify her pic by searching for pics and videos of the public viewing of Floyd in open casket at the Fountain of Praise church in Houston, Texas, on June 8, 2020.
I, therefore, conclude that @SeaShell720’s pic of Floyd’s body in the casket is not believable.
Last weekend, Antifa — the radical left group whom the Obama administration had identified as domestic terrorists four years ago — took over, barricaded and occupied six city blocks in the Capitol Hill region of Seattle, WA, and declared the territory as their “autonomous zone” — Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone (CHAZ).
Antifa then proceeded to act like the terrorists that they are by declaring local rapper Raz Simone as their first warlord, “defending” CHAZ with armed guards and homemade chemical weapons (chlorine gas), and terrorizing the hapless owners of businesses within those six blocks, demanding they pay for “security” and “protection” to the tune of, in one case, as much as $500.
President Trump immediately issued a warning to Demonrat Washington governor Jay Inslee and Seattle mayor Jenny Durkan that if they did nothing, he will stop the occupation — a warning that Inslee and Durkan blithely ignored.
It gets worse.
Cristina Laila reports for The Gateway Pundit that instead of dispatching the police or calling the National Guard to dispel the Antifa occupiers, Mayor Durkan, 62, is coddling the occupiers.
Denouncing calling Antifa “terrorists,” Durkan declared her solidarity with the occupiers, insisting that their takeover and occupation of six city blocks to be a “lawful,” constitutional (“first amendment”) and “peace[ful]” “self-expression” of “patriotism,” “free speech” and “community”.
Durkan even oh so thoughtfully provided the terrorist occupiers with port-a-potties.
Durkan also directly defies President Trump’s authority by declaring she will not “allow” the military into Seattle to dispel the occupiers.
The next move is yours, President Trump.
If you do nothing to stop this, this will be the beginning of civil war and the long-predicted break up of the no-longer United States of America.
America has descended into rampant lawlessness.
On May 31, 2020, President Trump said he “will” declare Antifa to be terrorists.
Why the future tense?
Doesn’t Trump know that more than four years ago in April 2016, the Obama administration’s DHS/FBI already had identified Antifa as domestic terrorists?
Antifa are more than terrorists: they are taking over Seattle to set up their own territory.
Last weekend, Antifa took over six square blocks in the Capitol Hill region of the city of Seattle, WA, declaring the blocks to be an “autonomous zone” that belongs to Antifa.
Gateway Pundit reports that Antifa erected barricades around the border of six city blocks and asked “folks with firearms” to take shifts “defending” the barricades.
Antifa are also demanding the businesses within the zone to pay them for “security”. Yesterday, business owners reported threats by the Antifa thugs if they would not pay for their “security”.
Ian Miles Cheong, the managing editor of Human Events, tweeted this social media post by Marcus S., a Seattle business owner:
Emboldened by the inaction of Seattle’s mayor and police, the Antifa terrorists say they will expand the zone and invade police precincts. The Post Millennial reports:
Following the surrender of the East Precinct of the Seattle Police Department to an Antifa mob and the occupation of Seattle City Hall, a source on the ground in Seattle says that other police precincts around the city are preparing to be the next targets.
Regarding the autonomous zone established by the Antifa-led mob, the source—whose anonymity we are protecting—says, “They bar media from entering and screen people coming in. They are walking around fully armed. Talking about making their own currency and making their own flag. SPD is talking about abandoning the west precinct now.
“West precinct has the 911 call centre. This is just like the Occupy movement. Soon we will have feces and drugs everywhere and people getting assaulted and raped in the encampments.
According to Andy Ngo, the editor-at-large of The Post Millennial, who had battled Antifa thugs in Portland, OR, the Seattle Antifa have a sub-Reddit forum on which they are posting about making homemade chemical weapons (chlorine gas), how to maintain water supply, and how to use volunteers armed with guns to push police back.
Last night, President Trump warned Washington governor Jay Inslee and Seattle mayor Jenny Durkan — both Demonrats — that if they don’t immediately take back the city, he will.
