A three-person leftist think tank has proved that the Peaceful Protests have been overwhelmingly Peaceful (except for the approximately 600 riots in the more than 200 cities that they have recorded).

Corporate Twitter.com is pushing this story:

Report finds that 93% of Black Lives Matter protests in the US were peaceful

A report produced by the Armed Conflict Location and Event Data Project (ACLED) found that of the 7,750 protests linked to the Black Lives Matter movement that took place in the US between May 26 through August 22, only 220 were not peaceful. The report further states that for those considered “violent,” the upheaval was “largely confined to specific blocks, rather than dispersed throughout the city.”

I’m reminded of the scene in Mars Attacks! where the President encourages the public to look on the bright side of the Martians ray-gunning a joint session of Congress:

Update: iSteve commenter res points out that Twitter.com’s assertion that the report say that “only 220 were not peaceful” is not true. What the reports says is that there were riots in fewer than 220 different locations around the country. Of course, many of these not quite 220 cities have suffered multiple riots, such as Portland.

Here’s some background from this leftist organization’s report:

Blue dots represent protests, orange dots represent protests that were riots. The bigger the blue dot the more the number of protests, the bigger the orange dot the more the number of violent protests. For example, Portland has had a huge number of riots. And, as you can see by comparing the size of the orange dot (riot) to blue ring (protest), virtually every demonstration in Portland has been violent.

Also, keep in mind that the dates mapped are just up through August 22, which was two days before the Jacob Blake riots started.

From the report:

Between 26 May, the day after Floyd’s death, and 22 August, ACLED records over 7,750 demonstrations linked to the BLM movement across more than 2,440 locations in all 50 states and Washington, DC.

An Overwhelmingly Peaceful Movement

The vast majority of demonstration events associated with the BLM movement are non-violent (see map below). In more than 93% of all demonstrations connected to the movement, demonstrators have not engaged in violence or destructive activity. Peaceful protests are reported in over 2,400 distinct locations around the country. Violent demonstrations, meanwhile, have been limited to fewer than 220 locations — under 10% of the areas that experienced peaceful
protests.

So, America has had far more than 220 riots this summer (there have been approaching half that many in Portland alone). What this leftist group found were violent demonstrations in nearly 220 different locations around the country. If we knew the average number of riots per location we could calculate the total number of riots, which might be approaching four figures.

The leftist group’s report doesn’t mention the total number of riots, but when I go into their underlying data I see them listing 617 riots from May 25 thru August 29, the vast majority involving BLM, Antifa or other leftist groups.

Please note, though, that not every single one of these 617 riots was related to the media-proclaimed “racial reckoning.” For example, there was an Armenians vs. Azerbaijanis donnybrook that broke out at a protest in Los Angeles on July 21st. But the vast majority of the 617 riots (so far) of the Summer of George have been BLM-related.

So, let’s call it approaching 600 separate riots by the Peaceful Protesters in nearly 220 locations.

Is about 600 riots a lot?

Yes.

  1. I’m willing to bet that police interactions with blacks are non-violent more than 93% of the time.

    The idea that you can be diagnosed with racism and it is a public health crisis has no merit at all

    Massachusetts senator and failed presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren has, along with two congresswomen, introduced a bill to declare racism ‘a public health crisis.’ Much of the bill seems to be oriented around the idea that it is attempting to provide more healthcare to minority communities that have been disproportionately affected by Covid-19.

    … What Senator Warren wants most is to establish an element of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) focused purely on researching what she defines as racism.

    She even wants an element of the CDC to address police brutality. Bear in mind that the CDC and their focus are supposed to be diseases, whereas what she’s suggesting is more to do with law enforcement. So, beyond any nonsensical beliefs about America’s founding, it seems that senator Warren doesn’t even know how the government she works in actually operates.

  3. Well… If you think about it, depending on the percentages of what’s considered “mostly”, almost anything can be defined as “mostly peaceful”… Even death… Even war… I mean there are many times were soldiers are just moving to one place or the other, or eating, or waiting… You know, “mostly peaceful”… Except when there’s shooting and bombing and raping and so on.

  4. 1 – (220 / 7750 ) =0.972

    What that 93% in Twitter’s headline means is anyone’s guess.

  5. My understanding is the car that drove over BLM supporters in Times Square was driven peacefully in excess of 93% of the time. Furthermore, the violence was “largely confined to specific blocks, rather than dispersed throughout the city.” So I’m sure it will drop from the news cycle momentarily.

    Peter Turchin says that political gridlock and civil wars/revolutions tend to be caused by elite strivers surpassing the finite number of elite positions. So chastened would be elites funnel their energy toward political activism and conflict in a desperate lunge for more influence and power. Gen X and Millennials were told by their Silent and Boomer parents that *any* form of higher ed was a ticket to the middle to upper class. What the older generations got so wrong was that they didn't realize that their generation benefited from higher-ed precisely because few(ish) people went to college before the late 1980's (when status striving began to explode). The General Social Survey shows that even small community colleges became much more popular by circa 1990.

    Turchin also says that the trend to corruption was visible starting in the 70's (more MBAs being sought and awarded, women entering the workforce in large numbers, an increase in immigration and polarization, etc.), but it took 15-20 years before these trends fully took effect.

    And noticeably the alt media people are really on edge now. From Carlson on down to bloggers and twitterz.

    The letter correspondence between General Milley and the two colonels last week (they asked for a military coup “if Trump refuses to leave office”) has people concerned.

    I see alt media anxiety spike across the board. Think there is inside info not openly discussed re increased behind the scenes moves. Is it hashish? Threats of hashish?

    More media people need to go public with the threats they receive. Think a massive wave of serious deep state threats has hit the alt media and they are angry and a bit rattled.

    Bannon sounds highly agitated today. Episode 169 is a new level of call to arms. He is a former Naval Officer. Says the letter from the two colonels is a bad sign and Milley’s response is a wake up call. Says we need to dig in for 5 months of trench warfare until inauguration day.

    Last night we got good news —– a defused timebomb outcome in Portland. That idiot could’ve mounted a huge legal defense and media campaign that might’ve pushed the country into a very dark place. Instead he blew the opportunity.

    Funny but this good news is not registering much. There is something else big going on.

    The brass and beautiful people are mostly true believers, though there are still plenty of conservatives in the biz; but nowadays, they rarely speak. They remember what happened to Brendan Eich and James Damore, and the grunts mostly can't afford to act like Peter Thiel or Palmer Luckey.

    I think another important factor is that conservatives tend to have families more often than liberals do. The risk of saying the wrong thing and suddenly not being able to feed your kids for a while isn't worth it.

    If you're a talented liberal with no family, you can spend a lot of time on your job, which will probably help you advance; and as you advance, you'll be around other liberals without families; and even if you don't start out very liberal, you'll probably wind up there, because that's the crowd you hang out with, and anyway it will be good for your career.

    The result is organisations run mostly by childless liberals, who employ a lot of silent, fearful, often basically Christian conservatives with families, who will never rise out of middle management, if they even get that far.

    Barnard, it starts in HS where marginal students are promoted and then given a diploma based on attendance, not achievement. These two managed to graduate college, many more drop out without a degree but debt. There are plenty of articles about students who were the first in their family to attend college where they were overwhelmed by the work load. These stories usually feature a minority student who was ranked in the top 5% of their HS. I mentioned before that I personally know three young who attended Community College to become Linemen. Two year course and then a job with the local electric grid company. One year on probation and then locked in. Hard, dangerous work for sure, but now making $100K plus.

    Obviously right. The fact that 7% of these demonstrations turn violent is actually shockingly high when you consider that most of them were in the suburbs and consisted of a few dozen teenage girls holding signs by a roadside. Also, are they counting the more straightforward looting events? I don't think the mag mile looting a few weeks ago or the Minneapolis Target looting (after that black guy killed himself) were connected to any prior protest, but BLM was clearly the catalyst in both cases.

    I expect the violence-to-demonstration ratio to only get worse, as the BLM cause boils down to the true believers. The sort of apolitical normies who had been supporting BLM have been backing away from it, deleting their black squares and such, since late June/early July, but the true miscreants are still coming out every night.

    Every time something like this happens I feel I should reiterate the following :

    PRO TIP: To avoid being roughed up, shot or killed by the police...

    1.)Do not engage in criminal activity.
    2.)Do not resist arrest.

    In this case I'll add...

    3.) Don't be a Prude.

  19. Much like the black run cities murder rate is only 30 per 100k. Doesn’t sound too bad! Until you realize the rest of the civilized world’s is approaching zero.

    Only 1/14 riots are violent and all of them are mostly peaceful. Yay…

  20. … for those considered “violent,” the upheaval was “largely confined to specific blocks, rather than dispersed throughout the city.”

    OK, so no 100% citywide riots. I’m so relieved. The Mayor’s housees are probably some of the good spots, well, just not in Portland, Oregon.

    I’m reminded of the scene in Mars Attacks! where the President encourages the public to look on the bright side of the Martians slaughtering a joint session of Congress:

    I don’t get this analogy at all, Steve. Riots are bad, so …

    Thanks for the map, Res. Where I live it shows just a little smudge of a riot in a place that I did know about, so it seems accurate from that one data point. We have had quite a few “strategic developments” apparently. That’s news to me, because I don’t know what strategic developments are supposed to mean. Maybe that describes groups of protestors funded by George Soros.

    Good catch. I was being intentionally vague. The intended target was the idiot good thinkers who are trying to minimize the significance of all of this rioting.

    The basic idea behind using phrasing like that is to divide people into two categories (are there any in between?).
    1. Those who respond "of course."
    2. Those who respond by pointing and sputtering followed by "look, a squirrel!" or equivalents.

    Just like police "restraint" killed George Floyd.

    The only point that matters is that their "restraint" was not restrained.

    In Austin we had one “protester” who brought a rifle to the local “protests” every night. He was video taped boasting that opponents were too big of pussies to do anything about it. That very night he was with a group that blocked a street. When he directed his unslung rifle toward the car, the driver got out, shot the man with the rifle and took fire from another “protester.” The driver got back into his car, sped off on the now-clear street, called 911, and turned himself over to the police, to be released a short time later. The rifleman who called others pussies was dead. He learned that some of those pussies have claws and fangs and are willing to use them.

    Alleged Boogaloo members face terrorism charges in Minnesota

    …Michael Robert Solomon, 30, of New Brighton, Minnesota, and Benjamin Ryan Teeter, 22, of Hampstead, North Carolina, are members of the “Boogaloo Bois,” authorities say.

    They are charged with conspiring to provide and attempting to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organisation, for allegedly building firearms suppressors that they believed they sold to Hamas, and for allegedly offering to fight as “mercenaries” for the group.

    Assistant Attorney General John Demers said in a statement that people who seek to engage in terrorist activity will be held accountable, “no matter what witch’s brew of ideological motivations inspire” them…

    The last paragraph in that piece is great:

When discussing possible security, Teeter said he could shoot from a distance and "you can't stop threats that you can't see", the affidavit said.

    I found this version of the story from the Daily Mail, which as many readers probably know is a UK right-leaning website. I don't know how accurate the information is, but it portrays the two arrested men as openly sympathetic to George Floyd and BLM. Some excerpts from the article:

    Solomon and the men he was with said that they supported the protests and demanded justice for Floyd, but were opposed to riots and looting and wanted to protect private property.

    ....

    According to the indictment, Solomon and Teeter first came onto the FBI's radar when a witness came forward and reported disturbing encounters with the two men, who were staying temporarily at the witness's home with firearms and 'substantial quantities' of ammunition.

    The witness said that Solomon claimed his group, the 'Boojahideen', was opposed to the police, white supremacists and looters, and that his ultimate goal was to remove the police from Minneapolis and overthrow the U.S. government, prosecutors say.

    ....

    According to the indictment, Solomon and Teeter also told the informant -- and an undercover FBI agent posing as a senior member of Hamas -- that they had plans to kill politicians, journalists, and white supremacists.

    .....

    There are also several pictures of the two men posing with Black people in front of pro-George Floyd signs.

    I live a few blocks from a big federal building. Most of the workers coming and going seem to be black in a state where only 5% of the population is black according to the census.

    The cafeteria is a separate building, glass walls on 3 sides. At lunch time it is Blackety blackety black black .

    The federal police at the entrance are all White though. Perhaps because competency is required to keep all the useless big fat black women safe??

    The brass and beautiful people are mostly true believers, though there are still plenty of conservatives in the biz; but nowadays, they rarely speak. They remember what happened to Brendan Eich and James Damore, and the grunts mostly can’t afford to act like Peter Thiel or Palmer Luckey.

    I think another important factor is that conservatives tend to have families more often than liberals do. The risk of saying the wrong thing and suddenly not being able to feed your kids for a while isn’t worth it.

    If you’re a talented liberal with no family, you can spend a lot of time on your job, which will probably help you advance; and as you advance, you’ll be around other liberals without families; and even if you don’t start out very liberal, you’ll probably wind up there, because that’s the crowd you hang out with, and anyway it will be good for your career.

    The result is organisations run mostly by childless liberals, who employ a lot of silent, fearful, often basically Christian conservatives with families, who will never rise out of middle management, if they even get that far.

    Steve, several months ago, you used Manaus as evidence against the notion that humidity protects against COVID. Well things in Manaus are looking very, very good. The death rates from COVID were far less than anticipated. Humidity is possibly the best way to reduce the COVID case fatality rate and Manaus does not refute this. Manaus did fairly well in the final accounting.

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/the_americas/brazil-coronavirus-manaus-herd-immunity/2020/08/23/0eccda40-d80e-11ea-930e-d88518c57dcc_story.html

    “The human destruction in the Brazilian city of Manaus would be “catastrophic,” physician Geraldo Felipe Barbosa feared.

    But then, unexpectedly, it started to let up ­— without the interventions seen elsewhere.

    These neighbors were hospitalized with coronavirus. Their vastly different journeys show the depths of Brazil’s rich-poor divide.

    Hospitalizations of coronavirus patients plummeted in the state from a peak of more than 1,300 in May to fewer than 300 in August. Excess deaths in Manaus fell from around 120 per day to practically zero. The city closed its field hospital.

    In a country devastated by the novel coronavirus, where more than 3.6 million people have been infected and over 114,000 killed, the reversal has stunned front-line doctors. Manaus never imposed a lockdown or other strict containment measures employed successfully in Asia and Europe. And what policies did exist, many people ignored.”

    It's true that since the 80's, in North America most serious acts of political terrorism have been committed by either Muslims or McVeigh type white guys. But after Obama was elected, the white Left got emboldened (as have black criminals), rather similar to what we saw with LBJ-Carter (1964-1980 saw a massive growth of Leftist opposition culture and street crime).

    But back in the early 80's, we still had enough political strength and cultural resolution to avoid a civil war or revolution (even if elements of the right wing wanted this in the 80's-2000's). Forward to 2020, and America has essentially ceased to function. You'd have to back to the 1890's to find such cynicism in our culture.

    ...Michael Robert Solomon, 30, of New Brighton, Minnesota, and Benjamin Ryan Teeter, 22, of Hampstead, North Carolina, are members of the "Boogaloo Bois," authorities say.

    They are charged with conspiring to provide and attempting to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organisation, for allegedly building firearms suppressors that they believed they sold to Hamas, and for allegedly offering to fight as "mercenaries" for the group.

    Assistant Attorney General John Demers said in a statement that people who seek to engage in terrorist activity will be held accountable, "no matter what witch's brew of ideological motivations inspire" them...

    The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is set to label white supremacists as the most serious terror threat facing the United States.

    In three draft reports reviewed by Politico, DHS says the threat posed by white supremacists is more significant than the immediate danger from foreign terrorists...

    Russia “probably will be the primary covert foreign influence actor and purveyor of disinformation and misinformation in the Homeland,” the documents add...

    None of the drafts refer to Antifa, the loose association of anti-fascist groups that President Trump and Republicans have described as dangerous anarchists and terrorists, though two drafts discuss groups who want to exploit the “social grievances” driving lawful protests.

    DHS to label white supremacists as the ‘most persistent and lethal threat’ to the US: report

    The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is set to label white supremacists as the most serious terror threat facing the United States.

    In three draft reports reviewed by Politico, DHS says the threat posed by white supremacists is more significant than the immediate danger from foreign terrorists…

    Russia “probably will be the primary covert foreign influence actor and purveyor of disinformation and misinformation in the Homeland,” the documents add…

    None of the drafts refer to Antifa, the loose association of anti-fascist groups that President Trump and Republicans have described as dangerous anarchists and terrorists, though two drafts discuss groups who want to exploit the “social grievances” driving lawful protests.

    Even after 4 years of Trump in the White House we’re living in a Permanent Bureaucracy/Deep State-controlled country with a marionette media and tech industry.

    Eh, not so much. This cultural split has been going on a long time. Doesn't take much to show up on that chart. It only takes 10 or 20 Goodwhites plus one token black to put on an Only Black Lives Matter! protest in front of city hall or a courthouse and get some time on the local TV news...which still exists, believe it or not. If there's a state uni or even a junior college, then there's bound to be a handful of black athletes and their girlfriends to be the core group.

    That's what my local Only Black Lives Matter protest looked like. Fat, aging Goodwhites; fat middle aged Goodwhites, a couple of girlfriends-of-athletes, one or two black college scholars, a couple of skinny old church ladies and maybe someone from the county D's. Plus, oddly enough, two pudgy dudes across the street half-dressed in go-gear with carbines ... who told every reporter that asked them "we're boogaloos here to protect things". I asked around, nobody knew who those guys were. Curious.

    There was also a pallet of pavers reported early in the morning of the protest maybe 50 meters from the protest site, but when I drove downtown I couldn't find it. Also curious.

    Peter Turchin says that political gridlock and civil wars/revolutions tend to be caused by elite strivers surpassing the finite number of elite positions. So chastened would be elites funnel their energy toward political activism and conflict in a desperate lunge for more influence and power. Gen X and Millennials were told by their Silent and Boomer parents that *any* form of higher ed was a ticket to the middle to upper class. What the older generations got so wrong was that they didn’t realize that their generation benefited from higher-ed precisely because few(ish) people went to college before the late 1980’s (when status striving began to explode). The General Social Survey shows that even small community colleges became much more popular by circa 1990.

    Turchin also says that the trend to corruption was visible starting in the 70’s (more MBAs being sought and awarded, women entering the workforce in large numbers, an increase in immigration and polarization, etc.), but it took 15-20 years before these trends fully took effect.

That very night he was with a group that blocked a street. When he directed his unslung rifle toward the car, the driver got out, shot the man with the rifle and took fire from another “protester.” The driver got back into his car, sped off on the now-clear street, called 911, and turned himself over to the police, to be released a short time later.

The fact that 7% of these demonstrations turn violent is actually shockingly high when you consider that most of them were in the suburbs and consisted of a few dozen teenage girls holding signs by a roadside. Also, are they counting the more straightforward looting events? I don’t think the mag mile looting a few weeks ago or the Minneapolis Target looting (after that black guy killed himself) were connected to any prior protest, but BLM was clearly the catalyst in both cases.

    I expect the violence-to-demonstration ratio to only get worse, as the BLM cause boils down to the true believers. The sort of apolitical normies who had been supporting BLM have been backing away from it, deleting their black squares and such, since late June/early July, but the true miscreants are still coming out every night.

Forward to 2020, and America has essentially ceased to function. You'd have to back to the 1890's to find such cynicism in our culture.

    It’s true that since the 80’s, in North America most serious acts of political terrorism have been committed by either Muslims or McVeigh type white guys.

    And seldom it would seem without some kind of foreknowledge by various government agencies. The most serious acts of political terrorism have benefitted nobody but the security-state itself. It is therefore reasonable to consider – especially given the numerous suspicious facts that pile up around these cases – that the security-state might have something to do with them.

    Eh, not so much. This cultural split has been going on a long time. Doesn’t take much to show up on that chart. It only takes 10 or 20 Goodwhites plus one token black to put on an Only Black Lives Matter! protest in front of city hall or a courthouse and get some time on the local TV news…which still exists, believe it or not. If there’s a state uni or even a junior college, then there’s bound to be a handful of black athletes and their girlfriends to be the core group.

    That’s what my local Only Black Lives Matter protest looked like. Fat, aging Goodwhites; fat middle aged Goodwhites, a couple of girlfriends-of-athletes, one or two black college scholars, a couple of skinny old church ladies and maybe someone from the county D’s. Plus, oddly enough, two pudgy dudes across the street half-dressed in go-gear with carbines … who told every reporter that asked them “we’re boogaloos here to protect things”. I asked around, nobody knew who those guys were. Curious.

    There was also a pallet of pavers reported early in the morning of the protest maybe 50 meters from the protest site, but when I drove downtown I couldn’t find it. Also curious.

    DHS to label white supremacists as the 'most persistent and lethal threat' to the US: report

    The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is set to label white supremacists as the most serious terror threat facing the United States.

    In three draft reports reviewed by Politico, DHS says the threat posed by white supremacists is more significant than the immediate danger from foreign terrorists...

    Russia “probably will be the primary covert foreign influence actor and purveyor of disinformation and misinformation in the Homeland,” the documents add...

    None of the drafts refer to Antifa, the loose association of anti-fascist groups that President Trump and Republicans have described as dangerous anarchists and terrorists, though two drafts discuss groups who want to exploit the “social grievances” driving lawful protests.

    Alleged Boogaloo members face terrorism charges in Minnesota

    ...Michael Robert Solomon, 30, of New Brighton, Minnesota, and Benjamin Ryan Teeter, 22, of Hampstead, North Carolina, are members of the "Boogaloo Bois," authorities say.

    They are charged with conspiring to provide and attempting to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organisation, for allegedly building firearms suppressors that they believed they sold to Hamas, and for allegedly offering to fight as "mercenaries" for the group.

    Assistant Attorney General John Demers said in a statement that people who seek to engage in terrorist activity will be held accountable, "no matter what witch's brew of ideological motivations inspire" them...

    I found this version of the story from the Daily Mail, which as many readers probably know is a UK right-leaning website. I don’t know how accurate the information is, but it portrays the two arrested men as openly sympathetic to George Floyd and BLM. Some excerpts from the article:

    Solomon and the men he was with said that they supported the protests and demanded justice for Floyd, but were opposed to riots and looting and wanted to protect private property.

    ….

    According to the indictment, Solomon and Teeter first came onto the FBI’s radar when a witness came forward and reported disturbing encounters with the two men, who were staying temporarily at the witness’s home with firearms and ‘substantial quantities’ of ammunition.

    The witness said that Solomon claimed his group, the ‘Boojahideen’, was opposed to the police, white supremacists and looters, and that his ultimate goal was to remove the police from Minneapolis and overthrow the U.S. government, prosecutors say.

    ….

    According to the indictment, Solomon and Teeter also told the informant — and an undercover FBI agent posing as a senior member of Hamas — that they had plans to kill politicians, journalists, and white supremacists.

    …..

    There are also several pictures of the two men posing with Black people in front of pro-George Floyd signs.

    Howard, I was General Foreman on the construction of a boiler house at a Kodak plant in Rochester, can't remember the street, as the plants were right in the city. This was the first year of the layoffs. So sad to watch as security actually had to lead people out to their cars. Everyone thought they had a lifetime job. Good to hear Strong and RIT are going, well Strong. Thank you.

    From the Bureau of Justice Statistics home page's "featured" tab:

    In 2018, the combined state and federal imprisonment rate (431 sentenced prisoners per 100,000 U.S. residents) was the lowest since 1996.

    The total imprisonment rate fell 15% from 2008 to 2018.

    From 2008 to 2018, the imprisonment rate dropped 28% among black residents, 21% among Hispanic residents, and 13% among white residents.

    In 2018, the imprisonment rate of black residents was the lowest since 1989.

    PS: Some say it doesn't matter who's president.

    At the direction of President Trump, the White House Office of Management and Budget will move to identify and eliminate any trace of “critical race theory” activities in the federal government.

    "The days of taxpayer funded indoctrination trainings that sow division and racism are over. Under the direction of @POTUS we are directing agencies to halt critical race theory trainings immediately." https://t.co/dyMeJka9rt

    — Russ Vought (@RussVought45) September 4, 2020
     

    All agencies are directed to begin to identify all contracts or other agency spending related to any training on “critical race theory,” “white privilege,” or any other training or propaganda effort that teaches or suggests either (1) that the United States is an inherently racist or evil country or (2) that any race or ethnicity is inherently racist or evil.

    “The divisive, false, and demeaning propaganda of the critical race theory movement is contrary to all we stand for as Americans and should have no place in the Federal government,” concludes the memo.

    I found this version of the story from the Daily Mail, which as many readers probably know is a UK right-leaning website. I don't know how accurate the information is, but it portrays the two arrested men as openly sympathetic to George Floyd and BLM. Some excerpts from the article:

    Solomon and the men he was with said that they supported the protests and demanded justice for Floyd, but were opposed to riots and looting and wanted to protect private property.

    ....

    According to the indictment, Solomon and Teeter first came onto the FBI's radar when a witness came forward and reported disturbing encounters with the two men, who were staying temporarily at the witness's home with firearms and 'substantial quantities' of ammunition.

    The witness said that Solomon claimed his group, the 'Boojahideen', was opposed to the police, white supremacists and looters, and that his ultimate goal was to remove the police from Minneapolis and overthrow the U.S. government, prosecutors say.

    ....

    According to the indictment, Solomon and Teeter also told the informant -- and an undercover FBI agent posing as a senior member of Hamas -- that they had plans to kill politicians, journalists, and white supremacists.

    .....

    There are also several pictures of the two men posing with Black people in front of pro-George Floyd signs.

  141. Thanks for the reply. What’s amazing is that the two articles have no overlapping information. The Unz article has several Twitter posts from Teeter, the skinny guy. The Daily Mail has several images marked with the Facebook copyright that show Solomon (the fat guy) posing with armed Black people with pro-George Floyd messages. It also details information apparently coming from the FBI about the two’s support for George Floyd protests and their desire to kill police and white supremacists that I mentioned in my first post. All of this information should be easy for the press to verify. Somehow, I have the feeling that only if the evidence is debunked will we hear about it from the MSM.

    In Austin we had one “protester” who brought a rifle to the local “protests” every night. He was video taped boasting that opponents were too big of pussies to do anything about it. That very night he was with a group that blocked a street. When he directed his unslung rifle toward the car, the driver got out, shot the man with the rifle and took fire from another “protester.” The driver got back into his car, sped off on the now-clear street, called 911, and turned himself over to the police, to be released a short time later. The rifleman who called others pussies was dead. He learned that some of those pussies have claws and fangs and are willing to use them.

    As a retired attorney, and sometimes legal consultant, who occasionally worked on criminal cases, in both capacities, and who has a couple of master’s degrees, to boot, I am guessing that my expertise, to the objective observer, is quite superior to your own, Black man. The fact that a death was labeled as it was does not prove that it was, indeed, as it was labeled; but, as long as the police restraint was legal and justified by the circumstances, any death resulting from that restraint is a justifiable homicide.

    Regardless, George Floyd died of an illicit drug overdose— period!

I would get a family friend— the former head of the local CYO— to vouch for me, but two of your fellow Black men forced him and his wife off of the expressway in Chicago, on or about January 22, 1978, shot him dead, and pistol-whipped his wife into unconsciousness, leaving her for dead, on the side of the road, late at night, in the middle of winter. So, with all due respect, Black man, go fuck yourself in your well-worn Black asshole!

We moved nearer to my father's job, at Bethlehem Steel's Burns Harbor plant, where he ended up working under Chief Justice John Roberts' father. That was shortly before my 11th birthday, in between Richard Hatcher's first primary win and his winning of his first mayoral term, on November 7, 1967. Feel free to look up Mark Furman's obituary, in the archives of the former Gary Post-Tribune. He was my priestly brother's best friend; his father was my first Little League coach, in 1965, and his youngest brother was on my team, the Red Devils. I spent an evening playing Risk with Mark and his wife, my priestly brother, and one of our cousins, some months before the murder, which took place as I was starting my final semester as an undergraduate at Purdue. The two murderers each got sentences of over 100 years, from the trial judge, to make sure that they would never be eligible for parole. I graduated from the University of Washington School of law in 1985, along with the current mayor of Seattle, Jenny Durkan, and the current King County Prosecuting Attorney, Dan Satterberg; the latter's wife, another classmate, is an in-house attorney at Microsoft.

    Your moronic argument was that if a (Black) criminal winds up dead, after being restrained by the police for resisting arrest, that homicide is a murder.
