      The Media must thinks Americans are really Stupid to use a deceptive picture of something that happened just 3 months ago, as if we aren’t going to remember something that was all over the news at that time when most people were in lockdown and very little other news happening.

      Propaganda!!!

    • @Night Shinesure just like in most repubs mind BLM is equal to the kkk.

    • Maybe I should have known. I live in the south and was married to a bi-racial man but, I’m shocked at just how many racist are still out there.. Racism may still exists until we’re all tomorrow people… I hope not because that’s a few hundred years away. Unless global warming gets us before then.

      You guys are so desperate for scapegoats that it makes you look even more guilty. There’s far too much rioting footage on YouTube for you to keep this up.

    • @cj p your daddy

  2. Since 9/11, radical right wingers have a monopoly on domestic terrorism

  3. According to FBI statistics, since 2006, 71% of all domestic terrorism was directly related to White Supremacist groups. 🤔

  4. Trump supporters aren’t trying to hear the truth or see the truth, because it doesn’t fit their narrative!

      Which is a legit mental illness

    • @Austin Myers you people don’t see the truth anytime we try to state facts to you you just keep on Yelling louder so you can’t hear anything but yourself you’re the pathetic ones

    • Jay C Feces ! FECES ! FECES! FECES !

    • @Austin Myers just like the Democrat reverting to name-calling when actually your party is the violent one you don’t know facts you don’t listen and don’t tell me you’re peaceful because you’re out at 2 o clock in the morning trying to burn down s*** you’re the problem

    • @Tf2knight you just proved my point moron

    Did the police actually find out who Umbrella Man was? Was he arrested? I thought a woman Identified him as her ex-husband, a cop.

    • TheActualTruth | July 29, 2020 at 6:29 PM | Reply

      Yeah it’s obviously the Minnesota cop Jacob Pederson, they’re covering for him.

    • The cop thing wasn’t even true.

    • TheActualTruth | July 29, 2020 at 8:14 PM | Reply

      @Scott T No it’s true, I looked up that cop and he looks exactly like that man. Any one with some common sense can think for themselves and realize it’s Jacob P.

    • Walter Bo not true, bro. It’s only in your dream. I know how you would love it, when a ws do it for you. But it didn’t happen. Deal with it

    This is all taken from the authoritarian, fascist playbook.

      Exactly..

    • madcheeseknight | July 29, 2020 at 11:24 AM | Reply

      Yeah, it is.

      Encourage activists to patrol the streets attacking anyone that doesn’t tow the party line and enforce a punishment/social cost for going against the party. Witch hunts and public shaming of the opposition in government (look at Barr’s hearing, or any Democrat investigation in the last few years).

      Creation of strife and problems in the country that would push people towards asking for more government and deluding the lower classes into begging for less freedoms and less liberty in exchange for security (“You don’t need guns when you have us, the government, to protect you”).

      Constantly spread propaganda encouraging people to be perpetually angry and encourage a lifestyle that makes the average person weak and incapable of responsibility. Erase the history and culture of the country over time so that people have no problem making the same mistakes everyone else in history has and people don’t realize that one group has been doing awful things for 200 years now.

      Scapegoat one specific group of people so that others can unite around hatred of the “people that caused the problems in the first place!” (white people). And when you’re caught doing something bad? Project. Blame someone else. Get the mob’s attention on the scapegoat so they don’t ask unpleasant questions.

      It’s all Authoritarian; it’s just the Democrats doing it.

    The man dressed in black carrying the umbrella and breaking windows was a Trump employee . SAD

    • @William Bailey
      I would suggest you go down to a Federal Building find the office of The FBI and bring a list of everyone you know who’s in a Militia.

      When, (and not if) they conduct a terrorist operation you’ll get Federal time as an accessory if you don’t.

    • @William Bailey
      They already know who you are so it would be in your best interest if you did the right thing and turn your friends in.

    • You are insane! Lol.

      @Neil R As insane as a person that thinks people should either ingest or inject themselves with bleach and Lysol , and lets not forget about a bright light , maybe that can go up your Caboose ? . Person , woman , man , camera , TV .. covfefe

    Standard tactics of ‘Agent Provocateurs’ in the Fascist Handbook!

    • @Bee Majic Now the FBI rounds up enemies of Antifa if you’re paying attention.

    • Marxists are experts on this tactic.

    • BLM rioters are white supremacists ? OK MSNBC we believe you .. really we do 🤣

    • David Smith-White another white supremacist buffoon who uses exclamation points to express himself

    • @Sera Stones I don’t think the portion of the FBI that helped Trump winning in 2016 seem plausible by pushing Comey to announce the renewal of the investigation into Hillary emails is on the same side as Antifa. Especially with Trump in charge of the country the last four years, the right wing leaning portion of the FBI probably has an even bigger voice now.

  9. Governments have used “agent provocateurs” to derail legitimate protests since the Roman Empire…nothing new under the sun!

    Wherever you see riots, it is usually infiltrators who start the fires.

    • madcheeseknight | July 29, 2020 at 11:29 AM | Reply

      @Enrique Ordaz Okay, so we had a literal commune forcefully created in Seattle for about a month where there was no law and order and at least 5 people ended up dead.

      Was that Trump too? And why are the Democrats supporting the violence if it’s Trump doing it? You go from saying there’s “no violence” to saying “there’s violence BUT-”

      Are the protests peaceful or not?

    • BLM rioters are white supremacists ? OK MSNBC we believe you .. really we do 🤣

    • Enrique Ordaz | July 29, 2020 at 1:23 PM | Reply

      @Andrew S Not all rioters are either black or from BLM. I know it is hard to fathom for…white supremacists.

    • Agrojester Plebwarrior | July 29, 2020 at 1:53 PM | Reply

      @Austin Myers Only if there is enough violence to blend in to…

    • No, never infiltrate.

    The man with the umbrella probably had ties to the white house. We don’t know if the so called federal troops are even federal troops or white supremacists.

  12. The man dressed in black carrying the umbrella was a Cop!

    • @B Bodziak just like Trump often says, “people are saying…”. Should be good enough for you amirite?

    • @Nam Pham what a garbage excuse. If Ellis broke the story of white supremacist causing riots across the country he would be a liberal hero, and made vp in a heartbeat. Any Democrat who broke this would be a superstar. They care about voters not cops.
      Explain to me why dems aren’t beyond ready to arrest rioters, comb through their internet history and expose them has agitators. But that’s exacly what’s not happening. Insted they cut them all loose.

      Go check snopes… There is zero proof of who umbrella man is.

      I’m not shopping for any more links tonight. Time for msnbc watchers to think like a truther for once in their lives. Ask real questions and dig.

    Don’t forget about the pallets of stones that magically appeared.

  14. There is a white supremacist in the White House enabled by the Grand wizard Barr and Republican enablers.

    His face says it all. “I don’t give a beep.”

  16. Didn’t the umbrella mans ex wife report him? Wasn’t he an off duty cop? Defund the police!

    there are a lot of videos of people like this being filmed mid-sabotage, ignoring the questions by onlookers of who they are.
