TERRORISM Riots in Minneapolis (now the main riot thread)

Molotov Cocktails = Deadly Weapon, Deadly Threat, Threat of Grievous bodily harm... and apparently a favored weapon of some.

Might want to check into how your States' Statutes define those terms and your legal ability to deal with it.
I think heavy bird shot, while still in the vicinity of the delivery agent. Sure to create some steppin’ n’ fetchin’.

Black Lives Matter and Antifa Rioters Are Pulling People Out of Their Cars In Santa Monica, CA And Beating Them

I will note that due to the anti-carjacking statutes in many states, if - in those states - someone attempts to pull you out of your car, you can shoot them completely legally and usually be immune to civil suits.

This is just one of the reasons that we don't see the rioting insanity in most of the so-called red states. In the blue states, where criminals are better-protected than citizens, the criminals understand that they've been given free reign to visit their depredations on the public. In the red states, they know that they'll likely stare down a muzzle!

Watch the TERRIFYING moment BLM protesters in Rochester surround & THREATEN a Blaze TV reporter
•Sep 14, 2020


Glenn Beck
BlazeTV reporter Elijah Schaffer has been on the ground covering BLM protests since they began months ago. But never before has his life been in such serious danger as it was last weekend during a Black Lives Matter protest in Rochester, NY. Schaffer details to Glenn the efforts one group of rioters went through to not only locate him, but then to turn the dangerous mob against him too. But, Scahffer says if the terrifying incident never occurred, he might not have been on the ground to cover later protests in Lancaster, PA -- which, he says, COULD greatly effect the upcoming election, too.

Who do we trust?! Because while a police chief in Oregon and a leader in the U.S. Forestry Service said there is no truth to the rumors that Antifa supporters started some of the wildfires in California and Oregon, officials elsewhere are telling a different story. In fact, several people in both states have already been caught, arrested, and charged with attempts of arson. So, we must pay attention to ALL sources because if not, we'll miss the truth.

Everybody with matches is an Antifa supporter? Well, I suppose so, but then again maybe not. Yea these many years ago, I was driving through No. Minn. And damn, a little fire along the road. Luckily I was pulling my camper so had a shovel. Put it out. Got a 1/4 mile down the road and another one! Put it out too. And another about a 1/4 mile. Each was a little larger indicating I was going against the grain.

Then a DNR sign, pulled in and reported. And the Dispatcher says Damn! That SOB doing it again? And he is on the radio to the State Patrol and everybody else. Then thanked me and we left.

Lots of people like to see fire. And not all of them are Antifa.

Yeah i don't understand why people in this day and age don't keep their car doors locked. I always used to lock mine, but now my 2008 car automatically locks driving past 15 mph. I like it, but in other cars i always locked them. I remember 40 yrs ago i had my car doors locked. We drove past the local nuthouse and were stopped at a light. A crazy girl walked right up to my car and tried to open the door. She got pissed and picked up her blouse to show her boobs. Nuts!

Cancel Culture BACKFIRES On Antifa And BLM Leftists As Their Arrests Go Public, They Lose Their Job

_______________________________


Portland Protesters Say Their Lives Were Upended by the Posting of Their Mug Shots on a Conservative Twitter Account

What Andy Ngo is doing is legal. The mug shots are public records. And Ngo told WW that it is his “duty” to report on protesters who have been arrested.
REPORTED AND BLOCKED: Ragina Gray says she’s received a slew of digital harassment since her mug shot was posted. (Christine Dong)

By Sophie Peel |
Published 5:42 AM
Updated 5:42 AM

On Aug. 7, Black activist Ragina Gray was tackled by Portland police at a protest and charged with disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, and interfering with an officer.
That same day, conservative Portland activist Andy Ngo shared Gray's name and mug shot on Twitter.

"Gray, 30, is charged with interfering with an officer, resisting arrest and more," Ngo wrote on Twitter. "She was arrested at the violent antifa protest in Portland and quickly bailed out. Gray is frequently photographed with kids at protests and rants about white terrorism." The photo was retweeted by 475 people.


Twelve nights later, on Aug. 19, a man showed up on the doorstep of Gray's mother's eastside home. "He was sweaty and nervous looking, and he asked for Ragina by name," says Lucinda Fisher, Gray's mom. "He mentioned [Gray's] son, and I noticed he had a gun in his hand." Fisher slammed the door and called the police.

Gray's children, 9 and 4, whom she brought to protests with her prior to her arrest, fear for her life.

"They're scared that someone's going to kill me," Gray says. "My first instinct is to say, 'No, that's not going to happen.' But there's a huge risk."

Gray has no direct evidence that Ngo's robust social media presence is the reason an armed man arrived at her mom's house.

Ngo's prominence has been catapulted by Portland's protests. He is editor-at-large at a Canadian conservative website called The Post Millennial and is also a regular guest on Fox News. Last year, he was assaulted at a Portland anti-fascist march, where masked assailants punched and kicked him in the head.

Ngo has more than 700,000 followers on Twitter, many of whom share the belief that Portland protesters are a threat to national security.

But Gray believes Ngo and his followers are watching her. And she is not the only one. WW has spoken with two others who have been arrested at Portland protests and had their names and mug shots tweeted by Ngo, and claim their lives have since been disrupted.

"We've been lying low, and to be honest, we've been staying at home with the blinds closed," says Phillip Wenzel, whose mug shot was shared by Ngo on Aug. 15. "I can get over Twitter trolls, but what gives me the most pause is the 1% of them that have genuine threats."
Critics call Ngo's posts "doxxing," or posting personal information about people to make their lives unpleasant.

But what Ngo is doing is legal. The mug shots are public records. The arrests happened. And Ngo told WW that it is his "duty" to report on protesters who have been arrested, "given the risk that violence and riots present to the public."

Ngo wrote WW via email: "I believe my duty as a journalist includes informing the public about individuals who are believed by criminal authorities to be sufficiently dangerous to the public that they meet the standard for arrest."

Portland couple Erin and Phillip Wenzel started their evening Friday, Aug. 14, as they have more than 10 times before that.

They donned their protest outfits: full gas respirators, masks, bike helmets, and a bulletproof vest for Philip, who had been in the front of protests as part of the drum line. Erin, a medic toting a first aid kit, usually settled in a few rows behind the line of drummers.

That night, Phillip was arrested when the two of them were sandwiched between two lines of officers during a smoke-filled, chaotic confrontation captured on video that shows several protesters cowering under yellow shields as cops push them to the ground.

A video of Wenzel's interaction with police shows him shielding his face on the ground as a half-dozen cops tackle him. He was arrested, charged with assaulting a police officer, resisting arrest, interfering with police, and disorderly conduct, and released the next day.

The next morning, Ngo posted his mug shot on his Twitter account, writing that Wenzel was "arrested at the violent #antifa protest."

Ngo also posted a biography of Wenzel from the law firm where he works as a paralegal. In Twitter responses on the thread, users added threatening comments and more personal information about the Wenzels, including the names and ages of members of his extended family.

One comment read, "I'm writing a letter to his employer right now." Another wrote, "Divorce and custody court paralegal scumbag who isn't even smart enough to be an attorney. Lol."

The Wenzels quickly deactivated all their social media accounts: Twitter, Instagram, Facebook.
The next day, Phillip Wenzel received a voicemail threat on his cellphone from somebody named John in Michigan, who said, "I'll have you know I'm 7 foot and 280 pounds."

The Wenzels alerted their employers. On Aug. 18, three days after Ngo posted the mug shot, Phillip Wenzel's boss at Elizabeth Christy Law Firm sent him a letter that the firm had received 50 threatening or harassing communications since his arrest.

"Because you have chosen to engage in activism that has resulted in violence, physical injuries, and negative publicity for [the law firm], there is now a major distraction from the business we are doing, a threat to my ability to gain new business, and a threat to our employees' safety," Christy wrote in an email provided to WW.

Three employees, after learning of the firm's response to Wenzel's arrest, announced their resignation in support of him on Sept. 10, in a letter shared with WW. The firm told Wenzel in a Sept. 11 letter that he would be laid off effective Sept. 16, citing a loss of work leading to a reduction in staff. Elizabeth Christy, managing attorney at the firm, told WW in an email that the layoff had nothing to do with Wenzel's protesting.

Both Wenzels say they now suffer from anxiety. Wenzel shaved his beard to change his appearance and now wears a hat when he walks his dog.

April Epperson, who works at a Northeast Portland public school, is another protester who was arrested for disorderly conduct and interfering with a peace officer on Aug. 24 and was greeted that same day by a Ngo tweet sharing her mug shot and Facebook profile picture with part of the caption reading, "Like others recently arrest[ed], she works with children at an elementary school." Several commenters on the subsequent Twitter thread shared the name of the school.
On Aug. 29, an email arrived in her school inbox: Attached were her Facebook profile photo and a picture of a toad in a dress with a caption reading, "So ****ing badass with your face covered? We can't wait to come to your employer and do the exact same ****ing thing you do to cops!"

Epperson alerted the school about the email. That weekend, the school canceled a laptop distribution event scheduled the following Monday, Aug. 31. A school text blast sent to families read, "We are pausing [device distribution] for tomorrow. We will resume as soon as possible and alert you when that is. As a reminder, school grounds, including the playground, are closed."

Although the school did not explain its decision, Epperson believes the laptop distribution was postponed because of threats. (Portland Public Schools didn't respond to WW's request for comment.) Still, the messages continued. "The school started getting a bunch of phone calls and emails," Epperson says. "People emailed [some staff members] my mug shot and told them I was arrested."

One email, sent Sept. 1 from a secure email address using the name "Jennifer Hartless" and shared with WW, includes a screenshot of Ngo's tweet of Epperson's mug shot. The photo is captioned, "This type of behavior seems a little unbecoming for a school teacher. Are standards any higher than this?"

Tim Gleason, professor of journalism at the University of Oregon, says Ngo's posts of mug shots are dangerous because of his targeted audience.

"There's some legitimacy to a claim of informing the public. But we have a pattern with this individual that his interest is in provoking violent reactions and doxxing," says Gleason. "It's a particular subset of conservative Twitter, and he knows that's who he's talking to."

In his response to questions from WW, Ngo contends he is taking on violent criminals that other journalists are afraid to confront.

"If you feel that transparency and public right to know should be outweighed by arrestee rights to privacy, this is a complaint for the Legislature, not for journalists reporting in compliance with state and federal law," he said. "A better question would be, 'Why do some journalists feel compelled to hide the identities of suspected criminals from the public?' Another would be, 'Whose interests does the suppression of criminal arrest data serve?'"

Ragina Gray continues to attend protests, despite threatening messages she receives on Instagram and Twitter. She says she deletes them as soon as she gets them, but says "people are calling me a terrorist, calling me a n—–." And the messengers, she says, are "Mostly white men. All white men."

Black Lives Matter co-founder teams up with pro-Chinese Communist Party group


Black Lives Matter co-founder teams up with pro-Chinese Communist Party group
By Jackie Salo
By Jackie Salo
September 17, 2020 | 1:51pm


Alicia Garza

A “trained Marxist” founder of Black Lives Matter has teamed up on a new venture with a pro-Chinese Communist Party organization.

Alicia Garza is now behind the advocacy group Black Futures Lab, which is backed by the Chinese Progressive Association, according to the website.

The group says it “gathers information about the ways that policy affects black communities” to educate and challenge lawmakers.

On a page soliciting donations, the group is described as a “fiscally sponsored project of the Chinese Progressive Association.”

The Black Futures Lab didn’t immediately respond to requests for comment on the partnership.

Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors once described herself and Garza as “trained Marxists.”

“We are super-versed on, sort of, ideological theories. And I think that what we really tried to do is build a movement that could be utilized by many, many black folk,” Cullors said in the interview with Jared Ball of The Real News Network.

The Chinese Progressive Association describes itself as working to “build collective power with other oppressed communities to demand better living and working conditions and justice for all people.”

But the group has ties to the People’s Republic of China, where there’s been a history of mistreatment of black people.

Recently, there were reports of xenophobia against Africans living in Guangzhou who were subject during the pandemic to random coronavirus testing or quarantined for 14 days in their homes, despite having no symptoms or contact with known patients, CNN reported.

The US State Department issued an advisory in May noting that law enforcement in China had ordered bars and restaurants not to serve people who appear to be of African origin.

“The US Consulate General advises African-Americans or those who believe Chinese officials may suspect them of having contact with nationals of African countries to avoid the Guangzhou metropolitan area until further notice,” the advisory said.

The Chinese Progressive Association, however, has held events with and supporting the government.

The group, which has been repeatedly praised by state-run media, backed raising the Chinese flag over Boston’s City Hall last year to celebrate the anniversary of the Communist Party’s takeover of China, and held a joint event with the People’s Republic of China to help Chinese nationals renew their passports, the Washington Timesreported.
