    Bone Spurs dream is to be a War President. 🤣

    • @Leonie Romanes The park police state no tear gas was deployed. They state smoke canisters were used. If you have evidence that tear gas was deployed instead of smoke canisters, then you could make a name for yourself with the media.

    • @El Cruzer55 That’s unsurprising. Antifa pulls that stuff all the time. Louder with Crowder did a hidden camera undercover infiltration a couple of years ago and you can watch and listen to antifa folks near a planned protest against Ben Shapiro in which they talked about using guns and melee weapons to attack people during the upcoming event, talked the plan, and gave the spy an improvised weapon. LWC turned the video and audio over to the police who arrested the group. I seem to recall they got to walk, but it prevented them from causing violence at that event. Whether it’s Antifa, white supremacists, or the actual initial “protestors” themselves becoming violent in any given incident depends on that particular incident. Although it would help me rationalize my opinions by thinking Antifa is behind these, or it would help someone on the Left rationalize his/her opinions by thinking white supremacists are behind these, the truth is what is important, and we do not have enough in the current situation to know either way who the violent parties are in the protests. Whether white supremacists, Antifa, or any of the other terror groups claim responsibility, we have to remember that they are TERROR GROUPS. Even if they did nothing, they would take pleasure in taking credit for a violent incident because they are terrorists. I think these groups are awful people. You probably think they’re awful people. As such, it makes no sense for us to believe anything they say that’s unproven which would further their agenda in spreading fear and terror.

      @Mr. Matt does that really make any difference? Trump smoked out peaceful protesters. So he could leave the safety of his bunker for a photo op. Once any leader has to hide from his own people in a bunker, he’s finished.

    • El Cruzer55 | June 2, 2020 at 8:39 PM | Reply

      @Mr. Matt
      I’m not accusing anyone because I wouldn’t know who to accuse. I think it’s important to know what’s going on. I saw for myself or probably wouldn’t given it much thought. These riots are being started and orchestrated by some organization. I find that I’m surprised at having peaceful protests hijacked by undercover elements of chaos. It sounds so fictional, but this is our time and country. Nothing should be surprising anymore..

    • @Leonie Romanes The police claim the protesters were becoming violent. As for which gas was used, yes, of course it matters. Tear gas has the potential for harmful medical effects, whereas generic smoke does not. As for hiding in a bunker, smart leaders generally do not risk themselves by going out and exposing themselves to people whom the police state are acting violently toward the authorities. That’s like moving a pawn out of the way in chess then sending your King up ahead on the board where someone can take him out in one move. This is the same reason why generals in battle stay at the back of the battle: not cowardice, but maintaining a distance so that the leader is not killed to sow chaos.

      @TOM SMITH PROOF? These people are obviously Looters. When’s the last you watched a car being driven slowly through the peaceful demonstration, and further. When’s the last time you watched someone standing up in a car, while holding a massive television, taking part in a peaceful protest? Well ? No, me neither.
      However, I’ve seen a very large fat guy at a large political rally, shouting out to the crowd to take a swipe at a guy who had done nothing, just moved (video evidence on here ) “knock him out I’ll pay your legal .bills ” or saying that he could shoot someone on 5th Avenue and nothing would happen. Don’t you see what’s going on ? He provided the shooters, you’re to pick them up, if they fell to the ground. Still think he’d provide any of your legal Bill’s? He’d deny any knowledge to connect him to you ? PS I didn’t mean to write a very large fat guy. I should have said a big morbidly obese guy. Sorted.

      @Dave Schultz False. No one has declared the virus dead. I’ve seen plenty of vid and news articles indicating we should expect a spike in the wake of, and attributable to, these protests. Personally, I think that they protestors, being young, will many be asymptomatic. But there will be secondary infections and I see a spike in about four weeks due to all this. Add on top the shouting which will propel droplets FURTHER than the recommended six feet social distance.

    • @TOM SMITH Your ignorance is unzipped…Trump doesn’t get a chance at a 3rd term…no one does.

    it’s deeper than a law enforcement problem.

    • Crystal Giddens | June 2, 2020 at 12:22 PM | Reply

      @Nicole Cordova We are supposed to be a free market economy, meaning less regulation, freedom to pursue our own interest, communism is NOT the answer and these so called capitalist are in fact communist. I have read plenty Noam Chomsky and in fact I believe we are experiencing a communist overthrow of our government. If/when that happens, you will wish it never did. We are just one step away as it is…Same pukes will be ‘in charge.’ A limited government is the only answer and we are losing it and have been for a long time. You have been subverted. Textbook subversion

    • @Carpenter -The problem is that only the symptoms have been looked at and not the actual problem. There has to be deeper discussions around the core issue in order for anything to change. Anything outside of that won’t change a thing.


    • Emsley Wyatt | June 2, 2020 at 6:59 PM | Reply

      Maybe, but solve the law enforcement problem and the rest can be resloved a whole lot easier.

    Focusing on the looters and arsonists is playing into dt plans for martial law.

    • @Justin Wilson go ask the boogaloo bois who are instigating violence, looting, and destroying buildings that later gets blamed on peaceful protesters.

    • @Mr. Matt why are you trying to defend white supremacists who are trying to create a race war? Are you for their cause or something?

    • @Maip video I am not. You have not countered my point. Them claiming they are doing something doesn’t mean they’re doing something. The possibility exists that they’re simply eager for attention and want to feel special, even by means of infamy. Produce evidence that there is any validity to the claim that white supremacists went undercover to start these riots. No one has done so yet, including the media. And you are being silly asking me if I’m for the white supremacist’s cause. Technically, if you’re wrong about this and are pointing the finger at white supremacists who are falsely trying to take credit for something they didn’t do…then YOU are helping to create a race war. 😉

    • @Mr. Matt them claiming they’re doing something could mean…that they’re doing something 😱 you’re trying to discredit what white supremacist groups are admitting to doing themselves?? Why should I produce anything when someone else made that claim? Go ask them.

    • @Maip video I don’t believe white supremacist groups’ claims blindly because I don’t trust them. Do you trust the white supremacists? You’re trusting them right now without any evidence that they did what they’re claiming to have done. Their goal is fear. They are accomplishing their goal even if they didn’t do the attacks by making people think white supremacists did the attacks. The anonymity of the Internet helps such groups threaten people and claim to have done terrible things while making it difficult to hold them legally accountable.

  11. Law enforcement needs more training and more repercussions for excessive force.

    When Bill Barr came out, a couple of days ago, I don’t know what I expected? But, honestly, when he just called this a, “left-wing, Democrat plot,” and had NOTHING else to offer, I knew . . . The government (at least, at the top) actually WANTS a Civil War. That wasn’t just the usual pandering to an audience of one; that was pouring gasoline on the flames. Your government is a Clear And Present Danger, America. Admit this to yourselves, or lose your Republic forever?

      Cyrus Hansen : I fear that, not only might you be right about that, but that any hopes of restoring it, may just evaporate in an already rigged election? We are not dangerously naive enough to imagine that this coming election will be the one and ONLY exception to the GOP’s record of desperate cheating, are we? Actually, I think we are. America’s problem is that even the best of us, in positions of power, just can’t bring themselves to bight the bullet and accept that some of America’s finest institutions are already GONE . . .

      @Steven Makell I “believed my eyes” until i found out they worked together – *“You are young yet, my friend,” replied my host, “but the time will arrive when you will learn to judge for yourself of what is going on in the world, without trusting to the gossip of others. Believe nothing you hear, and only one half that you see.* And now it seems he has a twin?

    • @Steven Makell here is a question… why did the government m.e. come up with heart disease as a cause of death while the family hired m.e. came up with asphyxiation as a cause of death?
      The latter seems more probable to me.

      @Steven Makell one, it was a quote from an edgar allen poe story. I wasn’t calling you “young” perhaps still naive but I have no clue how old you are, hence, the quotation marks…. I too was horrified at what I saw. I only questioned what I saw after learning they worked together as bouncers prior to covid. That raises serious questions in my mind. I feel certain America is being subverted, that nefarious forces are behind all of this, including covid etc. What happened? I no longer assume that I know just because of what I saw.

      You guys give too much credit to Vladimir Putin and the Russians. It wasn’t Putin who put millions of blacks and Latinos into prison, it wasn’t Putin who declared a war on drugs, or break up black families, or institute racial profiling, or ignore housing discrimination, or tolerate police brutality. That was done by American politicians who were elected by the American people. Don’t blame someone else for your racism, the only one responsible is you.

    • @Abhishek Mhatre All this just sets the stage. Americans in general are not accustomed to the degree of disinformation and division that has been waged the past 5 years, older generations especially who are not so sophisticated with social media. You should not underestimate it. US intelligence also found that these efforts have organized real events in person as well, not just online. Don’t underestimate it. It takes users to disseminate disinformation, but it’s a small investment to get it started and trending.

      ​@Abhishek Mhatre I wish you weren’t right and I could argue with you. I can’t. No one here to point blame at but ourselves.

    • @Abhishek Mhatre Spoken like someone who doesn’t live in America but only gets their news from outside sources. While you are right that it’s the politicians whom are responsible for much of what is wrong with America, the issue being discussed here was tDump and Putin’s desire to destroy this country. You clearly don’t know what you are talking about when it comes to Russian aggression, and US politics. They have been instilling hatred into our lives via fake news and social media trolling for years and that has only gotten worse since tDump and Putin became best buddies. You should learn the facts before attempting to debate them.
