    AOC / Omar / Talib / Waters and their ilk are undoubtedly giddy behind the scenes over the violence in Minnesota seeded by agitators from outside the state. Just as bad is the increasing violence in other states, not far behind.

    They, on their shameless political march are rapidly dissolving any chance at a decent standard of living they promise to those whose votes they are banking on.

    Sheer stupidity . . . on the part of the agitators, and on the part of the politicians who put them up to it.

    MN Gov said protests are being infiltrated by white supremacists
    Crime cartels and anarchists. Walz spoke at about 2:30am ET with the Mayor . He said that some of the arsons were strategic and professionally set and that various groups were burning and looting for their own agenda. Seeing tons of videos on Twitter of white guys dressed in black destroying and smashing.

    Very interesting Joe . . . I take it your title, “MN Gov said protests are being infiltrated by white supremacists“ are your words.

    I watched that presser, and don’t recall any reference by Lanz to white supremecists.

    I saw this stupid, fabricated story on another blog. I guess "He who shall remain nameless" is spreading it. I don't think that "He who shall remain nameless" could not be stupid enough to believe it, but perhaps he is. He lives under a host of other misconceptions. If there are any White folks who are stiring up the violence, they are wearing ANTIFA black.

    If there are any moderate voters left in Minnesota, perhaps they will see the error of their ways and not vote for Omar and the rest of bigots who run the Democrat Party. Walter Mondale would be reactionary in that crowd, but I’m sure old Wally has moved to the left since he took the Democrats down the tubes in 1982.

    It’s hard to believe that farmers can be stupid enough to think that they have any stake left in the “Farm and Labor Party” the way it is today. How can you own real property and be a member of the Socialist Democrat Party?

    It isn’t the party of Hubert Humphrey any more. If he were alive, I don’t think that old Hubert would be happy with the way things are going in Minnesota.

    Two people more outraged by vandals than by police murdering citizens in the streets. Typical Right-wingers.

    I'm outraged by both, and nearly as outraged at your attempt to divert attention away from radical leftists toward other radical groups (I'm no fan of white supremacists either).

    Frankly, you've undermined your own credibility so many times that I'm really not surprised.

    Your opinion of my credibility is irrelevant.

    To you, of course. To most of America, doubtful.

    More importantly, my opinion has little to do with what YOU have done to your credibility.

    You can see why I ignore him. He hates this country, its system of government and concepts of freedom upon which it was founded. He is an agitator and a complainer who has no solutions for any problems that we face. In reality he doesn’t what any of those solutions, which are within the present system of government, to succeed because he wants a revolution, not reform.

    Your the only one pretending to judge my credibility. How about I say that I heard from a large majority of Americans that your credibility is crap.

    "It was not clear if the outside groups suspected to be playing a part in the mayhem are made up of white supremacist agitators, left wing anarchists, or both."


    The governor cites the presence outside agitators 'to destabilize civil society.'

    Gallery: People surveyed the damage along Lake St. near S. 27th Ave. in Minneapolis on Saturday morning.

    Shaken by another night of chaos that overwhelmed law enforcement, Gov. Tim Walz said Saturday he will fully mobilize the National Guard to combat what he called a “tightly controlled” group of outside agitators, some of them from out of state, who have turned city streets into scenes of looting and arson.

    The struggle to control the mayhem could bring another 1,000 National Guard soldiers into the cities, supplementing a force of 700, already the largest civil policing authority in the state’s history. Law enforcement officials said it would be the first full mobilization of the Guard in Minnesota since World War II.

    “Our cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul are under assault,” Walz said, suggesting that a growing number of rioters are coming from outside the city, and possibly outside the state, in what he called “an organized attempt to destabilize civil society.”

    Walz said as many as 80% of the people causing destruction and fire in the cities could be from elsewhere. He distinguished the wanton looting and vandalism from the legitimate and mostly peaceful protests that began Tuesday, the day after the death of George Floyd, an unarmed black man who died at the hands of Minneapolis police.

    It was not clear if the outside groups suspected to be playing a part in the mayhem are made up of white supremacist agitators, left wing anarchists, or both.

    At a news conference just after noon Saturday, Minnesota elected officials and faith leaders urged people to abide by the curfew. U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., asked people to stay home tonight instead of taking to the streets: “We cannot move forward when people are burning down our city, burning down our state. That’s what we are united behind here today.”

    Part of your problem Joe, is that you constantly fail to read critically, and come away with the wrong impression. You need to take more time, really digest what you read, and think deeper into the future about the implications of what is suggested before taking the positions you do.

    A single example is the article you cited above . . . where the statement you attributed to the governor of Minnesota in your first post, "MN Gov said protests are being infiltrated by white supremacists" was based on a statement, "It was not clear if the outside groups suspected to be playing a part in the mayhem are made up of white supremacist agitators, left wing anarchists, or both," made not made by the governor, but by the writer of the article, David Joles.

    Walz was unable to comment definitively at the time. Safety commissioner John Harrington confirmed they've found online activity from white supremacist cells planning to go. More info will come soon. They are also looking into drug cartels and other branches of organized crime.

    I don't have a lot to say on the topic at the moment. Living in Minneapolis, it's been insane, dizzying, and terrifying. Tonight will be rough.

    Who wears black outfits to riots and agitates more violence? ANTIFA, the radical group that smashes windows and starts fires. If the Governor of Minnesota doesn’t know that, he has been under a rock for past three + years. Democrats are dumb enough to think that members of ANTIFA are allies they can control. They might be supportive of far left politics, but they are not controllable.

    I did not know you live in Minneapolis.

    You have my best wishes for your well being, and for far less damage to your city in the future than has already been done.

    Antifa...is that the new "ACORN" boogeyman for all the 80 year old fox news watchers?

    Not at all. ACORN is a radical community organization that advocates super low utility rates and cheap consumer goods “for the people” I think that they are totally unrealistic in their aims, but they are not violent.

    ANTIFA is a violent organization that out to harm people and destroy property. You do ACORN a major disservice when you compare them to ANTIFA. ANTIFA claims that they are anti-fascist when they are, in fact, like the Nazis brown shirts dressed in black.
