    Default Trump blames Antifa for riots, Minnesota officials point fingers at white supremacist

    “Trump blames Antifa for riots, Minnesota officials point fingers at white supremacists and cartels”

    “President Trump on Saturday blamed at-times violent protests that took place across the U.S. a day earlier on Antifa and other left-wing groups -- as Minnesota officials claimed that white supremacists and even drug cartels were involved in stoking violence.“

    “It’s ANTIFA and the Radical Left.” Trump tweeted Saturday, referring to far-left violent groups who often describe themselves as anti-fascist. Later, speaking to reporters before flying to Florida, Trump said a “lot of radical left, bad people” were to blame for the violence in Minneapolis and elsewhere and said “they have to be tougher” fighting back against the rioters.”

    “Meanwhile Walz, Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey and other officials have suggested that organized outsiders, including but not limited to anarchists, white supremacists and gangs from other states, were behind the destruction and chaos in Minneapolis.

    “We are now confronting white supremacists, members of organized crime, out of state instigators, and possibly even foreign actors to destroy and destabilize our city and our region,” Frey tweeted Saturday.”

    So let’s end this right wing rhetoric that it is “left extremists” causing all the destruction, point is, no one knows for sure who it is, especially Trump, but that ain’t going stop him, facts seldom do, figure a day or two and it will be Obama Biden campaign workers doing the damage

    Police provocateurs used to turn things violent and change the narrative from 'Police Brutality' to 'Rioters & Looting'. (Works every time)

    "Agent provocateur
    An agent provocateur is a person who commits or who acts to entice another person to commit an illegal or rash act or falsely implicate them in partaking in an illegal act, so as to ruin the reputation or entice legal action against the target or a group they belong to.Wikipedia"

    Wow, seems like an awful lot of black people have joined white supremacist groups. Who knew?

    Maybe you haven't heard of this new technology called the video camera.

    Everyone in the rioting isn't black, video carreras show that, and it only takes a couple of two three to turn a protest into a riot

    Just like Trump and Barr, you never offered proof it is a George Soros funded Antifa anti fascist element doing all the rioting, the leading accusation of the right, but the real point being, no one is sure who the provocateurs actually are or what is their purpose

    At this point, it strategically makes the most sense to blame white supremists. Any Minnesota official who actually blames black people or a left-leaning group is likely to get fired or otherwise harassed/attacked.

    Malarky, the Governor laid blame on several groups, point being he, unlike Trump, wasn't using the situation politically, he informed the obvious, no one knows exactly who the actual provocateurs are or what is their purpose

    And I'm sure Malarky and Vice don't have any political biases of their own that determine which groups and individuals they would prefer to blame.

    St. Paul Mayor walks back statement rioters were from out of state
    https://www.justplainpolitics.com/sh...m-out-of-state
    Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey said Saturday that officials think "white supremacists" and "out-of-state instigators" could be behind the protests in the wake of George Floyd’s death, but a report showed that "about 86 percent" of arrests so far are mostly of in-state residents.

    Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz also said Saturday that the majority of the protestors arrested were from outside Minneapolis and sought to take advantage of the chaos.

    However, a report by KARE 11 showed "about 86 percent" of the 36 arrests listed their address in Minnesota, and that they live in Minneapolis or the metro area, according to data the outlet analyzed from the Hennepin County Jail's roster. Five out-of-state cases came from Arkansas, Florida, Illinois, Michigan and Missouri,

    I’m reading black people in my Facebook feed saying it’s government officials and white people doing the looting in Oakland. Generally speaking you don’t get a lot of white supremists around here because it’s not a very welcoming environment (and I’m pretty sure most white supremists can’t afford it.). It’s possible of course they could have traveled here from other parts of the state.

    The Bay Area has its fair share of anarchists and I’m not all that familiar with Antifa but seems, on paper at least, that they would be welcome here.

    So I don’t know who is responsible but I’m not fully understanding the incentive of white supremists to come to the Bay Area, or even other areas, and loot during this time

    I keep coming back to past riots, where blacks attacked whites for just being white. That is not happening. Whites are able to freely walk among the supposed rioters. Many of the "riots" seem more like block parties than riots. Some are doing damage and looting, but many are littering as their worst crime.

    And everyone agrees that whites from outside the communities feel safe and comfortable entering the community.

    There is still racism in America, but it is hard to accuse the blacks of racism right now.

    they do it to keep the narrative of Black protestors are being violent criminals so police can continue to murder them.

    Which is my point, at this time, there seems to be evidence to go in any direction, so why is Trump only talking about one group and one political orientation
