    This afternoon, there was a peaceful protest in my city. About 2 hours ago, the burning cars and looting began. It's going to be a long night here.

    I'm shocked.

    I condemn both.
    No, Trump and Barr, the President and Atty. Gen. of these United States, are blaming soley left wing radicals when they know better. That's the point. Now, why do you suppose that they would purposely lie to the American people like that? Think about it.

    They aren't all antifa, they're a variety of folks, but there are antifa members in the protests. It's a whole lot more accurate than the Minnesota governor claiming they're white supremacists and cartels.

    So, is it your belief that most of the rioting - the looting and the damage - is done by locals?

    Why shouldn't I unless I have evidence to the contrary? The riots were scattered across the country. Did some organization mobilize that fast around every major city in the country?

    Agreed. They're mostly opportunists who find safety in numbers. If 10 people storm a store and start looting, then 100 opportunists charge in behind them. The door is open, they know cops can't arrest them all. "Free stuff, wheeee!"

    Similar with rioters. They want to fight someone/anyone and they can more easily find a target in a riot. IMO.

    It's especially scary because they have social media (which is how I believe they're mobilizing so rapidly around the country), and that adds another ingredient to it all.
