The Blue Cities Burn

George Floyd’s Death Brings Rage and Rampage

Submitted by InfoBrics, authored by William Stroock, author of military fiction, commentator…

On Monday 25 May, Dereck Chauvin was a respected officer of the Minneapolis police force. By Friday, he was unemployed and charged with one count of murder and manslaughter for killing George Floyd. Over the course of that time, riots erupted in cities across America. And, just like that, the Wuhan Coronavirus was no longer the number one news story in America.

The night after Officer Chauvin killed George Floyd, protestors took to the streets of Minneapolis to demand justice. Fearing a violent confrontation, Minneapolis mayor Jacob Frey ordered police to back off. Without strong police presence, the protests turned violent.  Rioters looted dozens of businesses in downtown Minneapolis, burned several buildings to the ground, and even overran the 3rd District Police Station. Americans watched as a long line of police cars fled the scene, rioters in chase. It was an anarchist’s dream. The riots spread across the country.

In Los Angeles, rioters battled the police, set fire to dozens of buildings, and looted stores along the toney Rodeo Drive. Police made hundreds of arrests. In Chicago, looters rampaged down Michigan Avenue and injured dozens of officers. Chicago police arrested hundreds. To contain the riots, authorities closed highway exit ramps into the city and raised the Chicago River bridges.  Rioters shot and killed a Federal police officer in Oakland and wounded another. In Nashville, rioters set fire to city hall. In Portland, rioters attacked banks, looted the city’s shopping mall, broke into and trashed the justice center municipal building. In New York City, rioters attacked police with Molotov Cocktails. Rioters broke the façade of CNN Center in Atlanta. In Washington, a mob tried to storm the White House grounds.

Amid the riots were acts of humanity. In Brooklyn, protest organizers stood in front of the entrance to a Target store and held off would be looters. In Louisville, peaceful protestors locked arms and formed a human shield around a riot cop who’d been cut off from his unit. Peaceful protestors in Washington stopped an agitator from hammering the sidewalk into throwable pieces of rock and handed him over to police. In Michigan, the Genesee County Sheriff took off his helmet, put down his baton, and walked in solidarity with the marchers. Newark protestors were entirely peaceful and danced in the streets.  In Minneapolis, hundreds of volunteers helped business owners clean up.

Eyewitnesses tweeted photographs of black clad rioters armed with bricks, rocks, batons, and makeshift shields in many cities. Internet sleuths posted screen captures of Antifa pages coordinating efforts throughout the nation. The NYPD intelligence unit concludes that Antifa has planned these riots for some time, has trained medics and bicycle scouts, and is using encrypted communications. Antifa operatives have prepositioned pallets of bricks and Molotov cocktails for use during the riots.

On Saturday, Attorney General William Barr announced that far left extremist groups using Antifa-like tactics had infiltrated the protests. On Sunday, President Trump declared Antifa a terrorist organization.  Barr followed with a statement that said, in part, ‘Federal law enforcement actions will be directed at apprehending and charging the violent radical agitators who have hijacked peaceful protest and are engaged in violations of federal law.’ He also said Federal Joint Terrorism Task Forces would identify and locate Antifa organizations.

After the police and National Guard reasserted control in Minneapolis on Saturday, Minnesota politicians tried to explain why they left the streets to the rioters all week. Mayor Fry justified abandoning the 3rd Precinct station to the mob saying, ‘The symbolism of a building cannot outweigh the importance of life.’ Governor Tim Walz said police and the National Guard weren’t in the city streets because they were protecting the Minneapolis Federal reserve and other important institutions. Walz ludicrously claimed the riots were the work of ‘white supremacists’ and ‘outsiders’. Publicly available records show the vast majority of those arrested in Minneapolis came from Minnesota. State Attorney General Keith Ellison urged rioters to focus their ire not on the National Guard but the police. Ellison also claimed outside ‘provocateurs’ were responsible for the chaos. Ellison himself is a former member of the anti-sematic nation of Islam and publicly supports Antifa. He’s not the only Democrat supporting the Minnesota riots.

New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio’s daughter was arrested over the weekend. Much of America’s cultural and political elite sympathize with the rioters. Thirteen Biden campaign staffers have contributed to the so-called Minnesota Freedom Fund, an organization helping rioters post bail which has already received thousands in donations from celebrities. Keith Elision’s son tweeted his support for the Antifa riots, as did Tim Walz’s daughter, and the daughter of Congresswoman Ilhan Omar the Islamic Firebrand from Minneapolis.

Minnesota is a blue state with a Democrat governor and attorney general. Minneapolis is a Democrat city that sent radical Islamist and Democrat Ilhan Omar to Congress. The cities’ last Republican mayor left office in 1961. The killing of George Floyd is a Democrat scandal, and these are Democrat riots.

As shown in this article, statistics clearly show how American police forces regularly use deadly force as part of their dealings with the public:

If by regularly you mean rarely but constant you are right…. If on the other hand you mean far more normal than other people, then you are wrong……. Just taking Chicago for instance and using 4 years as a way to defray a spike. There were 26 people killed by police (19 Black)…….. At the same time there were 915 murders and approximately 120,000 violent crimes. Over 90% were minority on Minority crimes.

every year 1000 people are killed by police in the US and that has been like that for years, decades even.

Most of them are white.
94% of black victims are murdered by black offenders.

How is all but on 27 days of the year rarely? Police is not supposed to kill ANYONE! They are the ones supposed to uphold the law, not break it. Most certainly not kill people. If you must ‘compare’, how do you justify 48 police officers killed in 2019 vs police killing 1100 people in 2019, in the US. That is more than 3 people per day.

A funny (perversely so) story about Nashville – One of the protestors toppled a statue and broke it to pieces. The statue was of a Civil Rights leader and the pieces were used to break into the 1st Black mayors office.

The killing of George Floyd is a CIA false flag scandal, and these are CIA false flag riots.

It also has Soros’ methodology as he gives money to both passive NGOs and to the DNC’s violent marauders.

Antifa are simply an instrument of The Global Zionist cabal. George Soros has ties to Antifa through a group called the Alliance for Global Justice (AfGJ). — As Benito Mussolini said “Fascism should more appropriately be called Corporatism because it is a merger of state and corporate power”. Antifa are a collection of unwitting and conscious Left Wing Thugs, set loose by Corporatism. The Antifa Anti fascists are a contradiction in terms. They are so called Left wing Anti Fascist ostensibly fighting against Right wing Fascists. In reality they are a bunch of Fascist Thugs doing the bidding of Corporatism.… Read more »

It has been reported that Floyd and Chauvin knew one another from previous employment as “security” at a Minneapolis establishment. See: https://www.realhistorychannel.org/communist-street-scum-protest-trump

Yes, I read that, thank you. It points in the direction of a prefabricated set up. Who planned all of this? CIA with Soros funding.

Pretty obvious from the pallets of bricks being placed near riot flashpoints that the rapid ‘Tet’-styled attacks all over the US were planned beforehand ( Many stashes have been photographed within sight of federal buildings and city administration offices. ) White folks and other traditional Americans take note: no one from the US Establishment oligarchy is lifting a finger to save you and your family from the looting blacks and Antifa street army arsonists. Plan accordingly.

All of this was planned long in advance, prepared and carried through with great precision. The “peaceful protests” were executed in all US cities at the same time, with the same methods. There was a planning hand behind it: false flag – CIA. This is foul play to damage President Trump’s chances of being reelected. But the calculation has gone wrong. Trump will come out all the stronger and will be reelected in November, I am sure of that;

Militant police tactics aren’t taught in police academies, unless you get a special visit from Israeli police, mossad etc who perfected it on unarmed Palestinians. Or in real special cases your “riot team” gets flown to Israel for training and ride along’s.

For years, the Exceptional And Indispensable Folk have been inciting, bankrolling and orchestrating far worse mayhem in Venezuela, Ukraine, Syria, Iran, China, and a hundred other places. They sure do like to dish it out. Let’s see how good they are at taking it.
