From Fox9 in Minneapolis:

Jail records show most arrested in Minneapolis riots have Minnesota addresses
By Theo Keith Published 1 hour agoFOX 9

MINNEAPOLIS (FOX 9) – The overwhelming majority of people arrested in connection with the Minneapolis unrest have Minnesota addresses, a search of the online Hennepin County Jail log shows.

Of the 45 people arrested for rioting, unlawful assembly, stolen property, burglary or robbery on May 29 and May 30 so far, 38 had Minnesota addresses, according to publicly available jail records reviewed by FOX 9.

Six had out-of-state address, and one person didn’t have address information listed.

City and state officials have repeatedly said over the past day that most rioters are from out of state. Gov. Tim Walz said Saturday morning that as many as 80 percent of the people were outsiders.

13% being out-of-staters isn’t insignificant. I saw a tweet from somebody claiming they’d been at the Twin Cities airport on Thursday morning and lots of Antifa-looking people were getting off airplanes. I don’t have proof of that, but it fits the general timeline:

Wednesday night: Blacks loot Target

Thursday night: Mostly whites burn down the police station

Friday night: A combination

But the bigger issue is that after 3 nights of chaos, only 45 people have been arrested?

Meanwhile:

  2. Arrest them?!? And subject their innocent black bodies to being exposed t the Coronavirus®? That just wouldn’t be right. Minneapolis, nay all of America, must burn before a black body is exposed to Coronavirus® in county lockup.

    "Like this poor disabled black woman https://twitter.com/thauserkstp/status/1266766315911622663 who realizes that she now has nowhere to shop or do much of anything in her neighborhood. The worst violence and arson has nothing to do with the act of cold-blooded murder perpetrated by that Minneapolis cop, but the usual “anti-capitalist” riot. Very well organized; one video even showed a pile of bricks that had been mysteriously delivered to the front of the CNN building in Atlanta.

    "(I note that in some videos one third to a half of the crowd appears to be young, college-age white girls (social justice snowflakes) with their arms outstretched taking video selfies of themselves participating in and supporting this lawless violence that will once again ruin minority neighborhoods that may take decades to recover — if ever)."

    The bulk of the Declaration of Independence accuses King George III of a concerted and
    far-reaching conspiracy: the king’s actions “all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute tyranny over these states.” Since then there has been a steady stream of allegations, most of which have had considerable basis in fact, and many of which have been entirely true.

    Try doing a web search on the phrase "conspiracy theories that turned out to be true" -- but don't use Google, of course, because they are embroiled in various dastardly schemes. You may find that the heavily promoted results appear to be "limited hang-outs." Different scholars propose different lists of verified conspiracy theories.

    If you are correct about him, little Theo Paijmans has shown that he does not care about those tens of thousands of black men. Or a single white person who was killed by the police. People like him are not worth thinking about - pray for them, but do not concern yourself overmuch with their struggles to be less silly than they are.

    As far as the little politician in the Land of Lakes and his obviously lying claims about white Supremacists being the "real problem" , well, in a few years, the little creep can get a prominent position on the Unz review talking about how the Jews were responsible for the murders at Auschwitz, or the Poles were responsible for all those vicious Russian invasions. Same stupid reasoning.

    I don't like bullies, and while I regularly feel only pity for stupid people, when a stupid person is a bully I think they should be criticized and exposed for the idiotic moronic losers that they are.

  5. Dishonesty for the purpose of social justice is a virtue and is institutionalized and generally accepted. Our sincerity.net site shows and proves that, by written ethics codes, avoiding “prejudice” is a supreme goal of media and everybody.
    What is really really shocking is that after normalization of lying, disoebeying (immigration) laws and brute violence are justified to attain social “justice”.
    And some people still worry about ” minor” issues like free speech when police are under threat of being lynched together with their families and masses of people lose their businesses and shopping opportunities. Why nobody discusses if there is insurance coverage or it is a ruined 3 generation family business.
    I thought that even in a small government, the protection of innocent citizens from violence is the government’s main duty.
    Are there really many white antifa rioters? And the Blacks don’t attack them? I would expect the media to focus on white rioters and looters, whitepixel a few light colored quadroons, and call this a white supremacist riot.

  6. This is a great trial run for UBI. You’ve got dozens of millions of Americans who’ve not been doing anything productive for 2 1/2 months, that $600/week + state money, but the normal Bread & Circuses of eating out, drinking out, and the sportsball have been taken away. Now they’ve got nothing to do but raise hell. Our new Socialist country is gonna be great!

  9. Blacks seem unable to understand the irrationality of destroying their neighborhoods just because they do not like the way a black criminal was treated. Instead, such incidents can be seen by them as an opportunity to loot, which should be done quickly before everything has been stolen.

  10. Oh, sorry, now ON topic, regarding these Minneapolis snowflake officials going full Conspiracy Nut. I don’t think they believe their own words. They would love it were it true though, but the FBI is too busy trying to oust a sitting President to have enough manpower to fill the rosters of all the White Supremacist groups there actually are.

    Will the evidence against their theory change anything? No. They must stick to the narrative or feel the wrath of the GoodWhites. They are, after all, fragile little snowflakes.

  11. We all fail to point out that even the “racist” mentions of the official crime statistics are woefully biased in favor of “minority” crime underestimates.
    Let us suppose that 5000 looters commit 50 crimes each. Social distancing, not wearing mask, each stone throw, every swear word disrespect towards police, trespassing in stores, every item stolen … That is 250 000 crimes. Probably much more when multiplied by days and cities. How many black crimes will be shown by crime statistics??

    Black crime much worse than statistics  indicate

Let’s hope all that smack the “experts” toss about while decrying people in masses on the beach about the virulence of COVID-19 in open spaces is at least equally true about rioting, or at least travelling to riots.

  16. I am obsessed with this conspiracy theory about the wife of a staffer of Congressman Joe Scarborough, who was believed to have died from a heart attack.

    MSNBC show host Joe Scarborough is screaming bloody murder (pun intended) about President Trumps innuendo about conspiracy theories that the women was the victim of foul play.

    How about this theory: Mr. Scarborough and many other media people feel free to say the darndest things about Mr. Trump because Orange Man Bad and First Amendment and the right of a free press to be complete douches. Mr. Trump is “douching back”, skirting the edge of libel law by tweeting “others have suggested, but I don’t know the truth to this” or to that effect?

    So is this some version of the president giving media people “a taste of their own medicine”? Is this “suppressive fire” to get the media people to keep their heads down and get back to their fox holes?

    Or is President Trump finally off his nut on this one? “Responsible” conservative sources are claiming this? Is this 15-dimensional chess (are we up to that high a number), or is Mr. Trump just “winging it”?

  19. The Democrats are stuck- they either crack down on the rioters and looters, or they let them burn the city centers to the ground. I think the Democratic politicians and the media really believed that Trump could be plausibly blamed for this chaos, but the fact is that the videos put them in the position of having to say, “Believe us, not your lying eyes.”

    At some point, they will find and arrest at one of these riots some poor schmuck who once wore a MAGA hat in a Facebook post, and he will be blamed for all of it. Until that happens, Walz and all the Democratic mayors and governors will have to lie their a**es off and hope they fool someone, anyone.

    This rioting is way too organized and persistent. Also they are targeting government buildings- like the court houses in Nashville and Philly. An especially suspect group is the crowd baying to get into the White House. I mean most people, even stupid rioters, have the common sense to not fuck with secret service. Have read tweets suggesting that they are dumb Zoomers that are genuinely surprised they haven’t been able to get in yet and burn it down. I guess it’s possible they are that sheltered but shouldn’t they be tired by now? Not buying the explanation completely. I think there are a high proportion of very suspect people sprinkled (spooks? But for who?) into that crowd.

    LA Assholes thought they might get to rape The Grove. Police called "bullshit," and it looks like they’re taking a stand there right now. The Grove is a very nice outside mall in L.A with dancing fountains and an Apple store. It’s a miracle it wasn’t hit up last night.

    Plenty of skinny girls wearing tops showing off their flat bellies, and spandex pants showcasing their fine pert asses, counterpointed by fat white slob lesbians floating around. Many effeminate beta males keeping both company. Not a riot-like crowd right now. More like gaggles of Youtube "influencers." Not a lot of black folks either. Looks like a Bangles concert. White men in LA seem to be taking testosterone inhibitors.

    Anyhoo, police have their shit together on Fairfax and Fountain!

    This guy ironically enough was a Floyd.
    This article also details his connections to a Russian white supremacy outside agitator group:

    A former Seattle man was sentenced to 37 months in prison Friday for throwing five beer bottles full of gasoline at Seattle police during the May Day 2016 protests.
    Although the Molotov cocktails thrown by Wil Casey Floyd, 33, were not lit, one ignited Officer Paul Ducre Jr.’s pants when a flash-bang device went off. Ducre suffered burns on his right leg, according to court documents.
    Shedding his black clothing and a diaper bag containing a sixth Molotov cocktail, Floyd fled before police could arrest him. The FBI said he left Seattle shortly after the protests, which resulted in nine arrests and injuries to five officers.
    A nationwide search for Floyd ensued as he moved around the country.
    When investigators discovered that Floyd had booked a flight from San Diego to Milwaukee, they secured a federal warrant to obtain his DNA and fingerprints when he landed in Denver for a stopover. In April 2017, the FBI arrested Floyd at his mother’s house in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin.
    Investigation records show that two months prior to the attack Floyd sent a text saying, “Kill them all with fire,” referring to the Seattle police. After the May Day 2016 protests, he ridiculed images of injured Seattle police in online posts.
    Floyd was linked to a group of “black bloc” protesters who vandalized property and attacked police during an anti-capitalism march. During his sentencing, Floyd said that he “realized it was a mistake, but there was no turning back.”

    Hang on: are these cretins actually lighting Molotov Cocktails? As in setting fire to some sort of improvised wick?

    I ask because setting fire to a wick is the way make-believe "Molotov Cocktails" are shown in American films and not the way Molotov Cocktails were originally constructed. Rather, they relied on a chemical reaction and not an open flame of any kind (which is asking for trouble).

    Am I missing something? Or is this exactly as stupid as it sounds?

    Yes, this is intended to force the prospective employer to actually make an employment offer to the applicant before doing a criminal background check. If the rejected applicant sues on some sort of discrimination claim, he can now claim lost wages (not just mental anguish) as an element of damages. This is because we know now he would have been hired, "but for" the results of the background check.

    The FBI leadership is still hiding evidence about their attempted coup , trying to avoid being prosecuted by the attorney general.

    The FBI may support this conspiracy theory to blame white nationalists for these riots, just as they promoted the Russian conspiracy and refused to investigate the Steele Dossier , but used the dossier to spy on the Trump campaign during the 2016 election. Would not surprise me if the FBI promotes the white nationalist conspiracy , in the same way they used the Russian conspiracy to damage Trump. The FBI is a totally corrupt organization. They cannot be trusted.

  56. 13% being out-of-staters isn’t insignificant.

    That depends on the location of the city. New York is scrunched between New Jersey and Connecticut, and a two-hour train ride from Philadelphia. 13% would be rather low there. In Los Angeles, a day’s drive from the nearest sizable city outside the state, 13% would be quite high.

    Maybe 5% of the Twin Cities metro area is over the state line in Wisconsin, and a half-to-one-hour drive to Minneapolis. Half of the out-of-staters could have come from there (I can imagine my brother-in-law doing it 20 years ago, though he’s settled down since), leaving about 6% from the other 48. Which, come to think of it, is still pretty high for a hard-to-reach place like Minnesota.

    Then again, Bill Ayres’s Chicago is an 8-10 hour drive– didn’t the original incident happen on Chicago Avenue, obviously named because it leads there?– and were Chicagoland a state, it would have a higher population than either Minnesota or Wisconsin.

    We are now confronting white supremacists

    As far as I can see from the coverage, the antifa aren’t posing as anything but antifa. The ACAP posters and graffiti have the A letters circled. There is no need for them to pretend they aren’t because the authorities are Ok with that, and in fact if they posed as White Nationalists they would be lynched on the spot by the other protestors.
    Frey and his ilk are perfectly aware who they are and are sympathetic to their politics, so they are flat lying when they say they believe these are white supreeeeemists.

    This shows that TPTB are desperately trying to disengage from the monster they created. But they can't go after their little pets. So they prep it by trying to make the riots look white, which in the current climate is inherently bad, and then send the constabulary in.

    Replies: @Unladen Swallow

    Problem is if they are not white, can they even attempt to arrest them? If they are ANTIFA whites that’s going to be pretty obviously not Southerners, Drug cartel members, or Russians. All this non MSM edited video showing looting by black people can’t really be spun as white guys in black face, even by them.

  78. The NSA has got data analysis out the wazoo by now for everybody who was carrying a cell phone in their pocket at the riots. Race, Age, Sex, Income, Balance sheet, Prescription meds, Education-Employment-Criminal history.

    Basically everything. Of course they aren’t going to tell any of us. The way they organize, they aren’t even going to tell a tenth of the NSA. But the analysis is sitting there waiting for the appropriate use. Which is probably to sell it to marketing firms but there you go.

  79. Mayor Daley said that the 1968 riots at the DNC convention were caused by “outside agitators”. He was right. Abbie Hoffman and the Yippees were there in full force.

    Too bad night sticks are out of fashion. I’ve seen them used and they are quite persuasive.

    Yes, this is intended to force the prospective employer to actually make an employment offer to the applicant before doing a criminal background check. If the rejected applicant sues on some sort of discrimination claim, he can now claim lost wages (not just mental anguish) as an element of damages. This is because we know now he would have been hired, “but for” the results of the background check.
    His case is now worth more.

    Seattle's going up in flames now. I kind of thought that might happen, so I drove down to pick up a bike I had waiting for my youngest kid down there yesterday morning. I figured I might need to wait a couple more weeks if I didn't get it immediately. Man I'm glad I moved out of there. Beautiful, lush place, but what a mess...

    Antifa stole a couple ARs from cop cars. Fortunately, a very brave FOX security guy took one back from a skinny kid who was about to shoot someone or get shot. It's also raining pretty hard here in western WA, which is a very good thing right now.

    Seattle's lesbian mayor and police chief are in over their heads. Our governor is a moron, and most of the real men who used to live in Seattle left years ago. What a shit show.

    BTW, this is nothing like the WTO protests in 99. Back then, the overwhelming majority of protesters were righteous Americans protesting globalization while a minority were antifa troublemakers. These riots today are purely anarchist hard left.

    After the release of the Flynn transcripts, we can see that conspiracy theories are sometimes correct.

    My current conspiracy theory:

    Antifa is getting funding from the chicoms.

    The soros funding of BLM is documented.

    The chicoms have publicly mentioned arming Hawaiian separatists in the past.

    Antifa has communist roots and a desire to destroy America in line with the CCP's goals, so it is a natural partnership.

    Replies: @S. Anonyia

    This sounds plausible.

    I mean it’s obvious that there is some big money backing Antifa and BLM. Foreign countries aren’t beyond the realm of possibility either.

    This rioting is way too organized and persistent. Also they are targeting government buildings- like the court houses in Nashville and Philly. An especially suspect group is the crowd baying to get into the White House. I mean most people, even stupid rioters, have the common sense to not fuck with secret service. Have read tweets suggesting that they are dumb Zoomers that are genuinely surprised they haven’t been able to get in yet and burn it down. I guess it’s possible they are that sheltered but shouldn’t they be tired by now? Not buying the explanation completely. I think there are a high proportion of very suspect people sprinkled (spooks? But for who?) into that crowd.

    13% being out-of-staters isn’t insignificant.
     
    That depends on the location of the city. New York is scrunched between New Jersey and Connecticut, and a two-hour train ride from Philadelphia. 13% would be rather low there. In Los Angeles, a day's drive from the nearest sizable city outside the state, 13% would be quite high.

    Maybe 5% of the Twin Cities metro area is over the state line in Wisconsin, and a half-to-one-hour drive to Minneapolis. Half of the out-of-staters could have come from there (I can imagine my brother-in-law doing it 20 years ago, though he's settled down since), leaving about 6% from the other 48. Which, come to think of it, is still pretty high for a hard-to-reach place like Minnesota.

    Then again, Bill Ayres's Chicago is an 8-10 hour drive-- didn't the original incident happen on Chicago Avenue, obviously named because it leads there?-- and were Chicagoland a state, it would have a higher population than either Minnesota or Wisconsin.

    We are now confronting white supremacists...
     
    Far more likely Antifa types posing as white supremacists.

    As far as I can see from the coverage, the antifa aren’t posing as anything but antifa. The ACAP posters and graffiti have the A letters circled. There is no need for them to pretend they aren’t because the authorities are Ok with that, and in fact if they posed as White Nationalists they would be lynched on the spot by the other protestors.
    Frey and his ilk are perfectly aware who they are and are sympathetic to their politics, so they are flat lying when they say they believe these are white supreeeeemists.

    These Antifa folks like to travel. Seattle to Wisconsin and Minnesota is a regular route.
    This guy ironically enough was a Floyd.
    This article also details his connections to a Russian white supremacy outside agitator group:

    A former Seattle man was sentenced to 37 months in prison Friday for throwing five beer bottles full of gasoline at Seattle police during the May Day 2016 protests.
    Although the Molotov cocktails thrown by Wil Casey Floyd, 33, were not lit, one ignited Officer Paul Ducre Jr.’s pants when a flash-bang device went off. Ducre suffered burns on his right leg, according to court documents.
    Shedding his black clothing and a diaper bag containing a sixth Molotov cocktail, Floyd fled before police could arrest him. The FBI said he left Seattle shortly after the protests, which resulted in nine arrests and injuries to five officers.
    A nationwide search for Floyd ensued as he moved around the country.
    When investigators discovered that Floyd had booked a flight from San Diego to Milwaukee, they secured a federal warrant to obtain his DNA and fingerprints when he landed in Denver for a stopover. In April 2017, the FBI arrested Floyd at his mother’s house in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin.
    Investigation records show that two months prior to the attack Floyd sent a text saying, “Kill them all with fire,” referring to the Seattle police. After the May Day 2016 protests, he ridiculed images of injured Seattle police in online posts.
    Floyd was linked to a group of “black bloc” protesters who vandalized property and attacked police during an anti-capitalism march. During his sentencing, Floyd said that he “realized it was a mistake, but there was no turning back.”

    Hang on: are these cretins actually lighting Molotov Cocktails? As in setting fire to some sort of improvised wick?

    I ask because setting fire to a wick is the way make-believe “Molotov Cocktails” are shown in American films and not the way Molotov Cocktails were originally constructed. Rather, they relied on a chemical reaction and not an open flame of any kind (which is asking for trouble).

    Am I missing something? Or is this exactly as stupid as it sounds?

    Blacks seem unable to understand the irrationality of destroying their neighborhoods just because they do not like the way a black criminal was treated. Instead, such incidents can be seen by them as an opportunity to loot, which should be done quickly before everything has been stolen. But the long-term consequences leave them living in a wrecked environment. One does not see much of that type of behavior from whites, Asians, or even Hispanics.

    No problem. They’re counting on the guilt-wracked white majority to throw them even more money for rebuilding it even better than before… and using minority owned contractors to do it.

    Not really, because federal money will rebuild it. Like Bush-41 did after the King riots.

  96. Here in Minnesota the Democrats have decided that the looting and arson was from out-of-state white supremacists here demonstrating against unfair treatment of blacks by the police.

    So somehow we can avoid the scourge of white supremacy by giving special treatment to minorities.

    To remedy this problem, politicians are going to be giving away other people’s civil rights.

    It’s quite the strategy:

    1) Blacks enthusiasticly protest something.

    2) Anarchist whites infiltrate and destroy property.

    3) Media and government claim reponsibility really lies with legacy of slavery, white supremacy, or Trump.

    4) Progressive groups demand and receive preferential treatment from Democratic politicians.

    I am obsessed with this conspiracy theory about the wife of a staffer of Congressman Joe Scarborough, who was believed to have died from a heart attack.

    MSNBC show host Joe Scarborough is screaming bloody murder (pun intended) about President Trumps innuendo about conspiracy theories that the women was the victim of foul play.

    How about this theory: Mr. Scarborough and many other media people feel free to say the darndest things about Mr. Trump because Orange Man Bad and First Amendment and the right of a free press to be complete douches. Mr. Trump is "douching back", skirting the edge of libel law by tweeting "others have suggested, but I don't know the truth to this" or to that effect?

    So is this some version of the president giving media people "a taste of their own medicine"? Is this "suppressive fire" to get the media people to keep their heads down and get back to their fox holes?

    Or is President Trump finally off his nut on this one? "Responsible" conservative sources are claiming this? Is this 15-dimensional chess (are we up to that high a number), or is Mr. Trump just "winging it"?
