A reminder, since this photo has been going around.

Yes, this was the police response to the Black Lives Matter protests. But this isn’t at the US Capitol, this photo was taken at The Lincoln Memorial. Behind these cops isn’t a building full of government leaders and staff. Behind them is a gigantic statue of President Abraham Lincoln. That’s right. The President who freed the slaves and waged a literal war against the white supremacists.

So maybe you’re confused.

Maybe you’re thinking, “All these SWAT cops are protecting Abraham Lincoln from Black Lives Matter? WTF?”

No. They’re not protecting a statue of Abraham Lincoln from BLM. They are protecting those steps from BLM. They’re preventing this historic steps from being used by BLM to make historic speeches.

That’s what they were there for. Martin Luther King Jr made his most famous and influential speech on the steps of The Lincoln Memorial. That’s what these SWAT cops were there to prevent. They were there to prevent BLM from using these steps to make another influential speech. They were there to stifle free speech, not to “protect” the memorial most beloved by BLM supporters.

The case shows how Apple is willing to help even where the context of the crime is controversial, namely the Black Lives Matter protests. That’s despite President #Trump and Attorney General William Barr lambasting the company for failing to help track down serious criminals while caving in to the demands of the Chinese #government.

Louisville police officers cleared of criminal charges in Breonna Taylor death

LOUISVILLE, Kentucky (Reuters) - Two white policemen who fired into the apartment of Breonna Taylor, a Black medical worker, will not be prosecuted for her death because their use of force was justified, but a third was charged with endangering her neighbors, Kentucky’s attorney general said on Wednesday.

Attorney General Daniel Cameron announced the Louisville grand jury’s decision at a news conference as protesters against racial injustice and police brutality massed in the streets of Kentucky’s largest city. ...

Nearly all Black Lives Matter protests are peaceful despite Trump narrative, report finds


In stark contrast to rightwing claims, 93% of demonstrations have involved no serious harm to people or property

The vast majority of the thousands of Black Lives Matter protests this summer have been peaceful, with more than 93% involving no serious harm to people or damage to property, according to a new report tracking political violence in the United States.

But the US government has taken a “heavy-handed approach” to the demonstrations, with authorities using force “more often than not” when they are present, the report found.

[I would like to know what fraction of all harm that has occurred during BLM protests was actually caused by right-wing infiltrators/agitators/murderers.

My guess is More than 90%.

Trump is the violent extremist. Trump does not care about black lives. Trump does not care about any lives but his own. Trump is the one who would rather let millions of Americans die than admit a mistake. It stands to reason that Trump and his zombies would be the ones committing all acts of violence at the BLM protests. Without evidence, any claim to the contrary is just propaganda.

Until I see Hard Evidence that BLM protestors are responsible for any of the violence, I will continue to assume that 100% of the violence at BLM protests was committed by white, right-wing extremists.

Trump and his followers have proven themselves to be such violent, ignorant subhuman pieces of shit that they have earned the presumption of guilt until proven otherwise: At this point, the presumption of Nazi guilt is simply a rational Bayesian inference, much like the presumption that the sun will rise tomorrow, or that gravity will still work an hour from now: It is just the way the universe works.]
