Finally some real good news for everyone


RICHMOND, Va. — Protesters demonstrating against the death of George Floyd, a handcuffed black man who pleaded for air as a white police officer pressed his knee on his neck, targeted Confederate monuments in multiple cities.

As tense protests swelled across the country Saturday into Sunday morning, monuments in Virginia, the Carolinas and Mississippi were defaced. The presence of Confederate monuments across the South — and elsewhere in the United States — has been challenged for years, and some of the monuments targeted were already under consideration for removal.

The words “spiritual genocide,” along with red handprints, were painted on the sides of a Confederate monument on the University of Mississippi campus Saturday, The Oxford Eagle reported. One person was arrested at the scene.

Ole Miss administrators, student leaders and faculty leaders have recommended moving the statue — installed in 1906 and a rallying point in 1962 for people who rioted to oppose the university’s court-ordered integration — from a central spot to a Civil War cemetery that’s in a more secluded location on campus, but the state College Board has delayed action.

Critics have said its display near the university’s main administrative building sends a signal that Ole Miss glorifies the Confederacy and glosses over the South’s history of slavery.

In Charleston, South Carolina, protesters defaced a Confederate statue near The Battery, a historic area on the coastal city’s southern tip. The base of the Confederate Defenders statue, erected in 1932, was spray-painted, including with the words “BLM” and “traitors,” news outlets reported. It was later covered with tarp, photos show.

The North's plan was originally to send them back but clearly reneged on that after seeing support for just having them free. This myth of the North planning to send all blacks back was struck down during the civil war. Bleeding Kansas militias did not plan on sending blacks back, they disagreed fundamentally with the institution of slavery.
The fact that they remained segregated for another 80 years or so after showed that they didn't intend to integrate with the blacks
Considering that it was federally legal to fuck over blacks and they weren't even considered human for years after kind of paints the situation these people were in after they were freed. These militias didn't coddle them and provide them homes and stuff, that's a huge monetary investment a lot of people can't make.
In other words, cope.
Amend my point then to you would either have been in favor of repatriating slaves to Liberia or would live in a society where you fucked them over and treated them like shit. Anyone who wanted to live as equals and had values that came anywhere near what you would find today were incredibly rare. If you're not, today, a radical vegan activist that bombs animal research clinics, you wouldn't have been that guy. You'd be a guy who your modern self would look back at as an abhorrent monster. In light of that, you should have some empathy for the people of the day and not hold them to the standards made common over a century later.

>This has to stop.

>The rioters in Portland savagely attacked a man for having an American flag, then brutalized a man who had tried to help him.

>The man with a flag was confronted by the rioters who sucker punched him and attempted to steal it. He refused to let go of it, even as the violent mob pounced on him.

>As the mob attacked the lone man, others on the outside threw projectiles at him.

>One man attempted to stop the horrific violence and was chased and beat down for it. The violent criminals attacked him from behind and he landed face first on the pavement.

>As he laid in the street unresponsive, one of the men kicked him in the head as hard as they possibly could. The man's face was left a bloody and mangled mess. Large fragments of his teeth were mixed with his blood on the pavement.

>"Knocked his motherf-cking ass out," a callous female rioter is heard saying as the man lay unconscious. One can't help but wonder how someone was raised that would make them so apathetic to violence.

Twitter once again sides with America over Trump and is forces of fascism.


Twitter said Monday that it has suspended an account named "ANTIFA_US" which it says was tied to the white nationalist group Identity Evropa. Over the weekend, the account had called for violence and its posts had widely circulated online.

Why it matters: It's the latest example of social media being used to exploit and sharpen the very real divisions in American society. It's also the latest example of Twitter more aggressively rooting out false information on its platform.

"This account violated our platform manipulation and spam policy, specifically the creation of fake accounts," a Twitter representative told Axios. "We took action after the account sent a Tweet inciting violence and broke the Twitter Rules."

>Twitter has previously taken action on other fake accounts linked to the Identity Evropa group, including ones engaged in targeted hate focused on race, religion and sexual orientation.

Context: As protests about the death of George Floyd spread nationwide over the past week, President Trump and his allies began charging, without evidence, that antifa — a label for a variety of far-left anti-fascist groups and activists — were responsible for the unrest.

>On Sunday, Attorney General Bill Barr said the Justice Department and FBI would treat antifa protesters as domestic terrorists.

Quiet, Karl Rove, nobody asked you.
I'm not saying it's not. I'm saying I want to know how this is linked to white supremacists.

I have no doubt it's not antifa and I have no doubt white supremacists are making moves. You would be a fool to think this isn't a prime opportunity for any radical political player to make a move, both foreign and domestic.
>Tonight's the night, Comrades

>Tonight we say "Fuck The City" and we move into the residential areas...the white hoods...and we take what's ours


The anti-American statement wouldn't be out of place in a real Antifa tweet, but this one's sus since they mispelled BLM and are actively encouraging looting/violence against whitey
Read the OP, White Supremacists were caught false flagging as Antifa.
/pol/acks on damage control now that their schemes were uncovered by glowfags.

A CBS News poll released on Tuesday, found that just 32% of Americans approve of the president's response to the events and protests in Minneapolis, while a separate survey from Morning Consult determined that nearly half U.S. residents think Trump is doing a poor job of handling the situation.


President Trump received net negative ratings when Americans were asked about his response to the protests and events in Minneapolis.

Nearly half (49%) of respondents in the CBS poll said they disapprove of Trump's handling of recent events, while just 32% approve.

Only 33% of those polled said they approve of the response by former Vice President Joe Biden, but his unfavorables were lower than that of Trump (25%).

The Morning Consult poll, released late Monday night, determined that the fallout from George Floyd's death and the subsequent protests could have significant implications for the 2020 election.

45% of registered voters think Trump is doing a poor job of addressing the situation.

When asked “are you more or less likely to vote for President Trump or Joe Biden as a result of George Floyd’s death and subsequent protests,” 45% said they are more likely to vote for Biden, with 31% more likely to vote for Trump.

>According to the United States Election Project, 49.6% of eligible voters (114,852,085 people) did not vote in the 2016 general election.
Half of the country doesn't even vote and they call elections legitimate. And the US calls itself the leading democracy of the world. Heh.
>cbs news poll
That's only because of Conservatives massive voter suppression campaigns.
Notice how they're hell bent against vote by mail even though it's perfectly safe?
You're right, but it's amazing just how effective they are at it to deprive and dissuade half the voting population from exercising their constitutional rights.


New polling shows that a majority of Americans, including nearly half of Democrats, support calling in the military to assist local police in handling the nationwide unrest that has accompanied peaceful demonstrations commemorating George Floyd, who died last week in Minneapolis police custody.

Morning Consult conducted the survey from May 31 to June 1 and found that 58 percent of voters support using the military to deal with protests and demonstrations across the country, alongside the police. Just 30 percent of respondents said they'd oppose such a measure.

Furthermore, 33 percent (one-third) of respondents said they "strongly" support sending in the military, while an additional 25 percent (one-quarter) said they "somewhat" support the move. Only 19 percent of voters "strongly" opposed deploying the military, while 11 percent "somewhat" opposed it. The survey's margin of error was plus or minus 2 percentage points.

Senate Republicans have launched politically loaded investigations into the Obama administration and presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden that are expected to carry on into the fall.

On Wednesday, the Senate Judiciary Committee begins the first of a planned series of hearings on the origins of the FBI's 2016 Russia investigation into possible ties with the Trump campaign. Republicans are particularly interested in the decision-making inside the Obama-Biden administration.

Further, the Senate Homeland Security Committee late last month approved a subpoena along party lines for Blue Star Strategies, a consulting firm that worked for Ukrainian energy company Burisma when Biden's son Hunter served on the board.

"The public deserves to know how a guy who was vice president of the U.S. who is currently trying to be president got away with using the U.S. government to force a foreign country to stop investigating a company that was paying his son over $80,000 a month," said Sen. Rick Scott, R-Fla.

Andrew Bates, a spokesman for the Biden campaign, accused the committee's chairman, Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., of abusing his power to aid Trump.

"We're in the middle of the worst public health and economic crisis in a century," he said, "and what is Senator Johnson focused on? Running a political errand for Donald Trump by wasting Homeland Security Committee time and resources attempting to resurrect a craven, previously-debunked smear against Vice President Biden."

Trump already broke the law to try to blackmail Ukraine into making shit up about Biden, if there was actually anything there he wouldn't have bothered with that. This screams pure desperation.
Their smear jobs worked against Clinton, it will work against BIden.
>could cost careers
Anyone else find it a little warped that it is no longer seen as a service to the country, but just another profession or a job?
And yet she still won the popular vote...

Also, a lot of Trump's advantage in 2016 was due to a lack of any previous political failures compared to Clinton. Now... not so much.
>"The public deserves to know how a guy who was vice president of the U.S. who is currently trying to be president got away with using the U.S. government to force a foreign country to stop investigating a company that was paying his son over $80,000 a month," said Sen. Rick Scott, R-Fla.
This didn't happen though, the prosecutor was corrupt in the first place and he was canned before Bidens son started working there anyway
The right wing is really grasping at straws


WASHINGTON — Inside the White House, the mood was bristling with tension. Hundreds of protesters were gathering outside the gates, shouting curses at President Trump and in some cases throwing bricks and bottles. Nervous for his safety, Secret Service agents abruptly rushed the president to the underground bunker used in the past during terrorist attacks.

The scene on Friday night, described by a person with firsthand knowledge, kicked off an uneasy weekend at the White House as demonstrations spread after the brutal death of a black man in police custody under a white officer’s knee. While in the end officials said they were never really in danger, Mr. Trump and his family have been rattled by protests near the Executive Mansion that turned violent for a third night on Sunday.

After days in which the empathy he expressed for George Floyd, the man killed, was overshadowed by his combative threats to ramp up violence against looters and rioters, Mr. Trump spent Sunday out of sight, even as some of his campaign advisers were recommending that he deliver a nationally televised address before another night of violence. The building was even emptier than usual as some White House officials planning to work were told not to come in case of renewed unrest.

>they're just out raising hell for the sake of seeing how much destruction they can cause
Nice strawman, protesters want police reform and for officers to be held accountable
>police reform
In what way? I haven't heard one mention of it.
>and for officers to be held accountable
Which they already are. Chauvin's preparing to defend against a murder charge as we speak
>In what way? I haven't heard one mention of it.
The general concussion would be better training and sticker screening, too many cops want to be johnny law bring justice to the wild west, or are cowards not fit for their jobs, both types are far to trigger happy
>Which they already are
Obviously not, I've seen way too many cases of cops blasting guys who weren't any threat to them get off on suspension with pay at the worse
Hell, Chauvin had 18 fucking complaints to his name before all this shit happened, dude should've been off the force or behind a desk, fucking fast food workers are held to a higher accountability standard
>The general concussion would be better training and sticker screening
What would that look like in practice? There's already a police shortage, so getting picky with who we hire would be hard
One of the reasons why there's a shortage is due to the dangerous nature of the job, which is exacerbated when people demand extra restrictions on what police can do to keep themselves safe.
>I've seen way too many cases of cops blasting guys who weren't any threat to them get off on suspension with pay at the worse
Can you offer examples? I've seen a lot of bodycam videos and there's many cases of guys pulling guns on cops and getting blasted away
>Hell, Chauvin had 18 fucking complaints to his name before all this shit happened
Did you look into what they were? Criminal attacked his squad with a shotgun, they all fired back. Another time, a criminal tried to wrestle his gun away to shoot him. If you make it so that cops can't defend themselves from the violent criminals they have to deal with, we're just not going to have cops anymore, just the violent criminals.


>Armed extremists are showing up to protests and urging a “boogaloo” — code for civil war — online.

Far-right extremists are showing up, with guns, to the protests against police brutality that have exploded across the country.

Others are egging on the violence from behind their computers, urging followers to carry out acts of violence against black protesters with the goal of sparking a “race war.”

Their presence makes an uneasy addition to the escalating unrest, which was triggered by the death of George Floyd, a black man who was choked to death by a white Minneapolis police officer earlier this week.

But there’s a range of motivations that’s driving far-right interest toward the protests, which are being led by community members and Black Lives Matter, and bolstered by antifascists.

For example, the so-called Boogaloo Bois — a group of armed anti-government extremists made visible by their Hawaiian shirts — have reportedly shown up to some of the protests.

Project Chanology was probably the first time anons really got involved advocating positions rather than just egging on both sides and laughing at shitstorms. More recently, there was GG, which redpilled a lot of otherwise apolitical anons. It was really a masterstroke from /pol/ though. Rally a bunch of people around a legitimate issue in a hobby they are passionate about, attack the usual hyperreactive dramacows from the safety of that crowd, deny these attacks while claiming noble motives, watch as liberals fire indiscriminately into the crowd and rabidly attack anyone who so much mentions a bad opinion of Kotaku, and then recruit all the angry and disillusioned people from the fallout into your movement. From there, it was just a vicious cycle as they fed you one red pill after another on why society was failing you and why the world sucked. I should know, because I was on GG's side back in the day. Even ended up following Internet Aristocrat, KoP, EdgySphynx, and Sargon for a time (started to get suspicious when guys like Milo "games are degenerate" Yiannopoulos was suddenly pro-GG). I think we're still experiencing the echoes of GG on 4chan's culture to this day.

Yeah. Thing is, we're already in a Cold Civil War, and it'll likely be that way for at least the next decade.

weird how he got arrested high on meth and fenatyl and extra weird that he resisted arrest? thought he was better than that :/
Even if you found out Floyd murdered 100 people, it doesn’t take away from the fact that the outrage here is for BLACKS. Police still killed and are killing thousands of innocent blacks. And apart from killing, they get treated differently in other ways. So Floyd past is irrelevant really, it’s not just about him. But his death caused him to become an icon of what instigated this anger.
Oh no a nigger who was a career criminal died. Time to root and loot and blame white folk

The FBI’s Washington Field Office “has no intelligence indicating Antifa involvement/presence” in the violence that occurred on May 31 during the D.C.-area protests over the murder of George Floyd, according to an internal FBI situation report obtained exclusively by The Nation. That same day, President Donald Trump announced on Twitter that he would designate “Antifa” a terrorist organization, even though the government has no existing authority to declare a domestic group a terrorist organization, and antifa is not an organized group. Following the president’s tweet, Attorney General William Barr said in a statement, “The violence instigated and carried out by Antifa and other similar groups in connection with the rioting is domestic terrorism and will be treated accordingly.”

>I love the sound of thug skulls hitting the pavement in the morning......

It would be the first time the act to deploy U.S. troops was invoked since the 1992 Rodney King protests.

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump could announce as early as Monday night that he’s invoking a 213-year-old federal law that would allow him to deploy active-duty U.S. troops to respond to protests in cities across the country, according to four people familiar with the decision.

The military police forces would come from Fort Bragg in North Carolina and possibly Fort Belvoir in Virginia and could arrive in Washington, D.C., within hours, these people said.

Trump’s decision to invoke the Insurrection Act, adopted in 1807, to deploy troops comes as his frustrations mount over the protests that have followed the death of George Floyd, a black man who was killed in police custody last week in Minneapolis. The people familiar with his decision said he was angry Sunday night at the destruction protestors caused in Washington, particularly the vandalization of national monuments.

Some of the president’s aides have been encouraging him for days to invoke the act, as he weighs options for exercising executive powers to address the crisis. The act was last invoked during the 1992 Rodney King riots in Los Angeles.

OMAHA — Nebraska Gov. Pete Ricketts (R) on Tuesday apologized for calling black leaders “you people” as fallout from the killing of a black protester by a white bar owner in Omaha earlier this week continued to fuel protesters’ anger over racial injustices.

On Monday, armed vehicles flanked the Douglas County courthouse in Omaha as County Attorney Don Kleine announced he would not be filing charges against a white bar owner, Jacob “Jake” Gardner, who allegedly shot and killed 22-year-old protester James Scurlock on Saturday night during a confrontation in the city’s popular Old Market area. The pair had scuffled, Kleine said, and Gardner had acted in self-defense in what he called a “senseless, but justified” killing
