      The whole world is scared of American Military, therefore America can never be free from Racism and They are the reason for violence worldwide.

    • The Brown Shirts and later Black Shirts used deplatforming, doxing, social justice, and identitarian politics to bring and keep NAZI power. Those are also currently leftist Democrat tactics.

      @Prayagi Basnet Thank god we have the best military in the world I don’t see why u would think everyone is scared of our military u should be thankful. Thugs don’t like them but its obvious why

    • Prayagi Basnet | June 8, 2020 at 1:23 PM | Reply

      Noles fan89 The best Military is interfering in other countries internal matters and destroying others land. It’s not good to conquer others land.

    • @SPZ Aruba How do you enjoy making a clown of yourself in public? Because you’re a complete joke to anyone who actually knows what nazism and fascism is.

      Point of story: don’t try to pass a fake twenty while on drugs and police won’t be called. Many police instill pride, integrity and guts.

      @JACQUELINE OTTO I got Rolex watch. I’m protesting police brutality

    • If you don’t wake up to far left looney tunes propaganda, you will be left with assault on humanity.
      Just who is Black Lives Matter?
      They sure ain’t in my Chicago protesting 149 shooting, 19 dead, black on black.
      Defund police?
      How about getting your very own black police force, paid by Black Lives Matter?
      Problem solved.

      Also, I have looked up his history and it seems he really hasn’t done anything except have a family since 2007.

      Is the idea of redemption that foreign to Trump supporters?

      wiremantw Freedom & Liberty Forever I feel more love coming from the left than I ever have from the right on this subject. Lived as a human on this blue sphere for 49 years. Single mom so I get poverty. I work hard to provide so I get that too. I have no family to speak of, since my mom died, and my dad, though I love him, he is a hard hearted Republican, and always has been. Now my Grandpa was a Democrat. And he was the most pleasant person to be around ever accepted every one. You say it’s organized from the left I say it’s a smoke screen. The first recorded rioter, the one that busted Targets window? That undercover White cop? Naw dude this smells of right wing racism inciting riots so they can say “ your burning down your own house” blame the black community then nothing changes and it becomes cyclical.

      @julio70585 There is no systemic racism against black people in America. They have the same opportunities to succeed as a white person. The fact black people can be doctors, lawyers, judges, police commissioners, mayors, governors and a black man was the US president four years ago proves that. Statistics show that more white people are killed by police than blacks again showing police brutality is not about race it’s actually more tied to a persons social economic status. The FACT is that black Americans have more opportunities and a better quality of life than white people do in Russia, Ukraine, Romania, Serbia, Bosnia, Belarus and Kosovo.

      @Freed Slave
      Did you notice that Acting president tRump was wearing a latex glove on his hand when he held up that BIBLE outside of the CHURCH?
      I guess the Coward in Chief was scared that if he actually touched a real BIBLE it would lead to a massive spontaneous explosion!
      SATAN’s SPAWN?????

    • its a wonder bunker boy didn’t stroke out in rage

    • @Bob Smith then why did he not meet with the non-violent protestors and clergy in Lafayette Park rather than attacking them?

    • @David C the people who attempted to burn down a church were not in the park. The time to attack and apprehend rioters was the night before as it happened in real time. Please give us a link to footage of the people tryingto burn the the church and attacking those troops trump sent out wit the calvary, rubber bullets and tear gas

    Washington D.C. being a state is way too overpowered…

      Yes, but never forget about the US territory of Puerto Rico. And never forget Trump would not be POTUS if we had been allowed to vote in 2016.

    • @WYSO Alums 2015
      That is absolutely correct. Also that is why Republicans will always deny Puerto Rico statehood.

  8. 🖕to the dictator in chief.

    Mayor Bowser is an incredable, brave, creative woman who chose to speak Truth to Power in a ginormous and permanent way!!!!
    I could not be more proud of, or gtateful to her for her bold act of postivity and unity!!!
    Such a powerful, postitve statement in a time when we are grossly horrified by the tiny-pawed paper tiger who stole the presidency! 💪🏾 💪🏼 💪🏿

    How is he leading in economy. What is it that he has done for the economy besides provide tax break to the rich when the country was heading towards record deficit. And for those of you who claim that he built this great economy, remember Obama reconstructed a damaged economy by the Republican party, made it great and handed it to him. Just like he was handed by his father 400 million dollars. If anything Trump should be calling Obama DADDY…

    • @B G right, regularly presiding while black despite winning electoral and popular votes ….TWICE and being seen in public wearing brown skin with that brown skin lawyer first lady and his brown daughters. His first wife at that.

    Well said, Mayor. A good leader.

  13. By next week….Trump will claim he came up with the name “Black Lives Matter”.

    • Carmelina Cappetta | June 8, 2020 at 9:10 PM | Reply

      @ford5522 So, you don’t agree with “ALL LIVES MATTER”?

    • @Carmelina Cappetta LMAO! Is that what the street says???? Is that what the street sign says??? I think not!

    • Carmelina Cappetta | June 8, 2020 at 9:34 PM | Reply

      @ford5522 No, but I think it should. Don’t you?

    • jim gunn Trump believes in BLM more than any pandering Democrat. Blacks are being fooled. Democrats want their vote. That is all.

    • I'm a Survivor | June 8, 2020 at 10:29 PM | Reply

      I will paraphrase this quote
      Saying all lives matter as a response to Black Lives Matter is like saying the fire dept should spray down all the houses in the neighborhood even though only one house is on fire b/c all houses matter…. BUT your house is not the one on fire!

  14. Racism needs to move to Russia Under dictatorship of putin .

    • Random Internet Person | June 8, 2020 at 2:57 PM | Reply

      Racism no need move. Racism everywhere. Therefore, marches everywhere!

    • Somebody should just punch putin right smack in his face.
      Theoretically of course, because I don’t usually condone acts of kindness like that.

  15. t’rump had to cancel his golf weekend and got trolled by this Mayor. No wonder he set a new record for rage tweeting this weekend. 😡🤯

      The fact a black woman can be a mayor in America proves there is no systemic racism in the US.
