Rioters have attacked and looted numerous businesses in the city of Minneapolis over the death of George Floyd. The city’s leadership appears unable or unwilling to end the violence, despite the overwhelming damage it has already done to the community. President Trump called out Minneapolis’ mayor and vowed to take swift action.
I don’t think there was a single American who was not heartbroken and outraged over the death of George Floyd. Video footage appears to show police brutally mistreating the man, then ignoring his pleas for help. It was a clear example of police brutality and requires serious action from all levels of authority.
But that is exactly what’s happening. Not only were the men involved fired, but an investigation has been underway. Not only that, but the DOJ and FBI are also investigating. Not once have we seen anyone ignore this situation or try to dismiss it.
Despite the fact that justice is being done, hundreds of “protestors” have stormed the city of Minneapolis. Claiming they are acting in support of George Floyd, they are setting fire to numerous buildings—including a police precinct—and looting stores. Some business owners have been forced to stand guard with firearms to protect their livelihoods.
The pathetic mayor of Minneapolis appears unwilling to bring the situation to an end—despite the danger and massive loss to the city’s economy. Now, President Trump is vowing to take action.
President Trump took to Twitter early Friday to vow military support for the governor of Minnesota after another night of violent protest in Minneapolis, which included a police station being overrun and set on fire.
“I can’t stand back & watch this happen to a great American City, Minneapolis,” Trump tweeted. “A total lack of leadership. Either the very weak Radical Left Mayor, Jacob Frey, get his act together and bring the City under control, or I will send in the National Guard & get the job done right.
A second tweet continued, “These THUGS are dishonoring the memory of George Floyd, and I won’t let this happen. Just spoke to Governor Tim Walz and told him that the Military is with him all the way. Any difficulty and we will assume control but, when the looting starts, the shooting starts. Thank you.” [Source: Fox News]
It is wholly unacceptable for these rioters to destroy their own city over Floyd’s death. How is that going to bring justice for his family? How is that going to end police brutality or acts of racism? Attacking your own community is like shooting yourself in the head because you have a migraine.
But it’s clear these “protests”—now spreading to other cities—are not about George Floyd. His death is being used by political operatives to manipulate and stir up the black community just before the election. Or is it a coincidence this happened just days after Democrat nominee for president Joe Biden let slip his own racist sentiments?
Black Lives Matter and the rich Democrats behind it are trying to distract from reality. They don’t want black Americans thinking for themselves and making right choices. Instead, they want to stir up their anger, fear, and hate—all in the name of pushing their political agenda.
They don’t care how much damage this will bring to largely black communities. As Candace Owens wrote, “The race riots of the late sixties should served as a lesson: when black Americans began looting, burning, and rioting in Detroit and Chicago, the white business owners abandoned those flourishing cities, plunging them into the poverty and crime-ridden hubs that we see today. When we riot, we harm NO ONE BUT OURSELVES.”
Hopefully, the National Guard will bring order to this chaos. But it will not change the schemes the left uses to control and oppress black Americans.
The only solution is for all Americans to reject this party’s toxic, evil agenda.
