Protests Erupt Across Country; Black Militia Member Shoots Comrades In Park

4059

Update (2130ET): Saturday BLM protests unfolded across the country on Saturday, with tensions flaring in major cities including Portland, Seattle, Chicago and Louisville, Kentucky. 

In Seattle, the police department – which on Friday announced that they would effectively not be enforcing the law due to a City Council ban on the use of non-lethal crowd control measures – declared a riot, citing “ongoing damage and public safety risks,” according to USA Today. 16 protesters were arrested by Seattle PD for assaulting officers, obstruction and failure to disperse. One officer was hospitalized with a leg injury caused by an explosive, while the crowd launched mortars and rocks at the police.

In Chicago, hundreds of protesters called for abolishing ICE and defunding the police, while chants of “Black women matter” and “Latino lives matter” could be heard.

Meanwhile, dozens of pro-police protesters gathered in Grant Park, where Mayor Lori Lightfoot removed a statue of Christopher Columbus on Friday morning before dawn. Attendees of the “Back the Blue” rally could be heard chanting “We love CPD,” as counter-protesters gathered across the street.

And In Louisville, tensions almost spilled over into violence as two opposing and heavily armed militia groups faced off within yards of each other downtown.

More than 300 members of the Atlanta-based Black militia NFAC, or “Not F**king Around Coalition” came to Louisville demanding justice for 26-year-old Breonna Taylor, an ER technician who was fatally shot by officers in March.

The group came close to 50 far-right “Three Percenter” militia members, who were also heavily armed. Police kept the sides apart and tensions eventually dissipated. Both militias had said they wanted to avoid violence. 

Cries of “Black lives matter” were heard through downtown. One man yelled “Don’t fire unless you’re fired upon.” –USA Today

At one point gunshots erupted when one NFAC member accidentally shot three of his comrades.

The Seattle Police Department announced on Friday that residents and business owners are essentially on their own, after the City Council banned the use of pepper spray and other ‘less lethal tools’ to disperse crowds.

“Simply put, the legislation gives officers NO ability to safely intercede to preserve property in the midst of a large, violent crowd,” reads a letter from Seattle Chief of Police, Carmen Best – who added that thanks to the City Council, “Seattle Police will have an adjusted deployment in response to any demonstrations this weekend.”

And in anticipation of violent weekend protests coordinated over social media platforms (which ban conservatives for mean words), Seattle business and police have been boarding up.

Nationwide coordination

The Portland-based Pacific Northwest (PNW) Youth Liberation Front – which describes itself as a “decentralized network of autonomous youth collectives dedicated to direct action towards total liberation,” has issued a call to action for other Antifa cells across the country on Saturday – calling it “J25” (July 25).

In a Facebook ‘call to action,’ the anarchist group writes:

The Federal Government has already waged war against Portland, which has been protesting everyday for 50 days straight, and now feds are going to war against protesters everywhere in an attempt to take control and snuff out the fire of this uprising. We must become more powerful than them.

Form an affinity group.

  1. The Dems and MSM keep playing up to these rioters in a hope that voters will blame the president and vote him out in November. My prediction is that they will play into their own nightmare by getting not only the presidents supporters to show up on Election Day but those who are sick of the violence being perpetrated on American society for the single purpose of winning an election with another extremely flawed candidate. This may not only lose the Dems the White House but Congress as well. I can only hope that this happens as it will give the president 4 years where he can concentrate on putting America on the right footing again and release us from the continuous politically motivated fake plots against the president and his administration.

  2. Ok, It is Time to Call Out the National Guard and put a STOP to ALL of this Crap ! Round Up and Arrest every Member of the BLM Group for TREASON against the U.S. !!!!

  3. I am very disappointed that every politician from the Oregon democratic party, governor,Brown, Sen. Merkley, Sen. Wiyden, Rep Blumrnauer, all had the audacity to openly state that President Trump had violated the Constitution, Amendment X by sending in federal troops when they say that “Powers not delegated to the U.S. by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people.” what this means is that if there is anything going on and the constitution does not cover it, it must fall to the states or to the people. In this case it has been declared both by the protesters and the self proclaimed terrorist, antifa, and the federal gov’t, the President, that the activities are riots and looting and physical property damage with fires and against the law enforcement instructions to disperse and the protesters and terrorists have caused harm to the police that this action is cause against the U.S. and the guarantee by the Constitution to the U.S., Article IV, Section 4, ” The United States shall guarantee to every state in this Union, a Republican form of gov’t, and shall protect each of them against invasion and on application of the legislature, or of the executive against domestic violence.”
    It seems that these above dem politicians do not know anything about the Constitution or they can’t read or they never took this class in civics in HS, or they are just trying to pull a fast one over on the citizens of the U.S. and most of all their constituents of Oregon, just another episode in the fake news and obama lies that they will find someone else to be blamed, a staff member perhaps?
    But as you can see the verbage in Article IV, section 4, plainly gives the executive , the President the authority to protect the state, each and every one of them against domestic violence and a guarantee that we shall maintain a Republican form of gov’t.
    I guess that means the pledges that have been made by soros and obama and biden and all the hooligans in Congress that have determined to overthrow the gov’t to a socialist/communist form and destroy the Constitution and our freedoms and rights given to us from our God in order for them to form a dictatorship here in the U.S. and around the world with the KSA and with China involvement

  4. Blacks are only 13% of the population, less than 1% are democrat paid for BLM &Anita supporters most of which are cowards who infiltrate innocent protest, kill innocent older people, loot and burn each city using Marxist tactics, imagine what would happen if they really pissed off the other 87% of the population. MAGA supporters including our black, Asian and Hispanic bro’s are being cool as they watch BLM and Antifa shoot each other in power struggles as they descend into lawlessness encouraged by their Treasonous democrat mayors and governors. Kama is coming, watch them all go mad and blame each other when Trump wins,

  5. It’s about time for any protests for George floyd to STOP, since it was proven by the autopsy reports (two of them) that HE DIED FROM DRUG OVERDOSE! FENTANYL AND OTHER DRUGS!
