Just saw a CNN interview. Apparent;y, the "outside agitators" befuddling the protesters minds, and forcing them to commit acts of destruction, and violence are... Wait for it...

The Russians!

Now, I've heard it all. Lets everybody off the hook. Not guilty your Honor, the Russians made me loot.

Volunteers flock to Twin Cities neighborhoods to clean up ravaged streets

Hundreds of people from around Minnesota and the country on Saturday flocked to the Twin Cities neighborhoods where massive protests took place for a fourth consecutive night on Friday despite the cities’ curfews in place.
What the "politicians"don't tell/ show you.

Story



Maybe they missed the line ups of vehicles, un-looting, and returning the merchandise to the burnt out shelves. They weren't looting, they were protecting all those big screen TVs, and Nike products from being consumed in the fires the Russians set.

And according to Don Lemon, the word "thug" is a "dog whistle" for racists. If you use the word "thug" to describe violent criminals, you are a racist I must have missed a meeting on that....


April 29 2015

President Obama doesn't regret using the term "thug" in describing the violent rioters in Baltimore this week, spokesman Josh Earnest said Wednesday.

"Whether it's arson or, you know, the looting of a liquor store ... those were thuggish acts," Earnest said.

In discussing the riots Tuesday, Obama assailed the "criminals and thugs who tore up the place," and described them as a distraction from the real issues of police brutality.



That racist bastard!

"failed" is a strong word.

But the international politic and economical movements are not very smart, see e.g. G7 news today.
Economy does not seem to be failproof, see 2008.
Export is far not strong enough, see Wiki.
Common health care seems not to work good.
Unemployment money, I dont know ...
Money for retired persons, I dont know ...
US rescue money for small enterprises?

And now this together with 105.000 dead people.
Sure, some people are start thinking now.

Putinstan has a history of exploiting American stupidity. Why wouldn't they want to jump in with both feet and stand shoulder to shoulder with freedom loving Nazis and outlaw terrorist groups like antifa?
If I'm ignoring you it's because you're fallacy impaired. Here's hoping you rectify your problem so that we might have a sensible conversation.

... and very good, when we remember the last few years.
But they are smarter:
they perhaps install a ring of problems in and around USA,
and that ring will be perhaps soon much tighter.

But this is thinking about very long time strategies.
This is not next month or next year.

I've read some similar stories with regards to Russian interference, but they were all refering to it as conspiracy theory. With that being said, if I were a foreign power looking to stir shit up, this would be a good way to do it.

For the record, ANY foreign power might have an agenda to dip their fingers in this shit salad, not just the Russians.

What I find most interesting, and disturbing, is the need the media has for finding a group to blame. It must be white nationalists, antifa, Russia, The Rothschilds etc. I guess people look for simple answers, but some of the most ridiculous nonsense I see online requires Olympic level mental gymnastics.

They are smarter but that's only proves how stupid Republicans are.

Dictatorships like Russia interfering with liberal democracies is a global problem with no end in sight. The good news is they're easy to spot. They will always be forced to side with conservatives because conservatives are naturally delusional and easily led.

Not just Republicans, the other party also.
They are just ineffective and much to slow to solve problems,
we see it now with Covid-19.
Why hurry? Just wait what happens, watch S&P, make investments.
In the meantime the rich play golf in Australia,
or live in a nice hotel in switzerland alps, Covid-19 protected.
