Taking down America – brick by brick.
One of the key, if not the most principal (but unreported) aspects of these national riots is how well coordinated and well funded they are. These things don’t just happen, they are made to happen. These are targeted, well planned acts of war.
George Floyd suffered a miserable death at the hands of an abusive, violent racist cop.
A black man is arrested and murdered in an act of heinous violence while handcuffed and defenseless. Three fellow officers, in close proximity to the killer cop, watch the crime, listen to the black man plea for his life and do nothing to stop it. For the next several days angry mobs tear up American cities, looting stores, burning buildings, police cars and American flags and even killing individuals in their path. The rationale offered for their violence and criminal acts is that they are protesting a racist system – or in Senator Bernie Sanders more colorful words, “a grotesque system of ingrained racism and economic disparity that now more than ever needs to be ripped down.” These attacks on America are what the riots are really about. Sanders’ “grotesque system of ingrained racism” is a leftwing fantasy that fuels the rage of the rioters and their violence, which is directed not only against white Americans but also black Americans whose neighborhoods and shopping centers and businesses Sanders’ comrades are pleased to torch.
No one knows for certain the motives that actually led Officer Derek Chauvin to take George Floyd’s life and to do so in such a brutal manner. Chauvin was a bad cop with a long dossier of misconduct complaints and three killings already on his record. But let’s posit the most logical explanation: he was a racist. And so were his three accomplices. What does this say about “a grotesque system of ingrained racism” in America? Absolutely nothing.
Is there a cop, or a politician from the president on down, or a publication that in the week of George Floyd’s murder rose up to defend the murderer? Is there any public voice claiming that there were extenuating circumstances – that he was resisting arrest for example – that would justify the act? There wasn’t. The attorney general for the state of Minnesota is black; the police chief is black; the vice president of the city council is black, the congresswoman for the district is black. A normal view of this matter would recognize it as an isolated incident involving four bad cops who should long before have been removed from the force by the Democrat politicians who control the state.

NYPD Counterterrorism Head Says Organized Groups Planned Looting in Wealthy Neighborhoods
By Zachary Evans, National Review, June 1, 2020:
Widespread looting in New York City was planned advance by a coordinated group seeking to target wealthy neighborhoods, the head of the NYPD’s counterterrorism unit said on Sunday.
A number of stores, many of them in the upscale Soho neighborhood in Lower Manhattan, were looted on Sunday evening during protests that followed the death of George Floyd in Minnesota. One witness told the New York Post that “hundreds” of looters were “going systemically from store to store.”
Before the protests began, organizers of certain anarchists groups set out to raise bail money and people who would be responsible to be raising bail money, they set out to recruit medics and medical teams with gear to deploy in anticipation of violent interactions with police,” John Miller, Deputy Commissioner for Intelligence and Counterterrorism, told reporters on Sunday.
“They prepared to commit property damage and directed people who were following them that this should be done selectively and only in wealthier areas or at high-end stores run by corporate entities,” Miller continued. Looters “developed a complex network of bicycle scouts to move ahead of demonstrators in different directions of where police were, and where police were not, for purposes of being able to direct groups from the larger group to places where they could commit acts of vandalism, including the torching of police vehicles and Molotov cocktails, where they thought officers would not be.”
Stores including Nike and Gucci were targeted in Soho, while other areas of Manhattan and Brooklyn also saw looting on Sunday. Dozens of suspected looters were arrested.
