Default ‘Umbrella Man’

With an umbrella in his left hand and a hammer in his right, the man in black lobbed his weapon so nonchalantly into an auto parts shop’s windows that it surprised many others in Minneapolis marching nearby in a May 27 protest after George Floyd’s death.

Soon after the abrupt attack, the mostly calm demonstration near a police precinct erupted into looting and arson — the first fire in riots that eventually caused $500 million in damage and left two people dead, the Associated Press reported.


For weeks afterward, activists and Internet commenters homed in on a viral video of the figure nicknamed “Umbrella Man,” speculating that his intent was actually to turn the peaceful protests destructive.

On Tuesday, Minneapolis police identified him as an affiliate of a white supremacist group that allegedly sought to “incite violence,” according to a search warrant affidavit filed in the Hennepin County District Court. The Star Tribune first reported of the warrant. The 32-year-old man has not been charged.
The Minneapolis Police Department declined to comment on the case, citing the active investigation.

The news comes amid rising fears of right-wing agitators purposefully stoking violence at protests. Last month, federal prosecutors charged supporters of the right-wing “boogaloo boys” movement in incidents including the killing of a security officer at a federal courthouse and plotting firebombs and explosives at a government building and peaceful protests — all with the aim of stoking racial conflict.

That story is constipated. So now the AntiFA and BLM monkeys have been incited to riot by a White supremacist, eh? I got this from the opening post above. I'm not subscribing to a POS rag like the Washington Post to read more.

Reasonable people would have trouble sleeping bouncing between "Protests are peaceful!" followed by "Protests are violent, but it's not their fault!"...

...but these aren't reasonable people...

This story is laughable. They are somehow able to ID a man who is literally covered head to toe with his face obscured and they have yet to arrest him even though they supposedly know who he is. This is nothing more than desperation on the part of the leftist media trying to make it seem as though its not the protesters themselves doing the rioting, looting and arson. Its always been the protesters doing the rioting, looting and arson. Rodney King riots, Fergason riots, Occu-tard riots, Keith Lamont Scott riot and sorts of other riots it was the protesters. It wasn't outside groups. Amazing how lib-tards were trying to justify these cocksuckers rioting, even placing claiming the police were escalating the riots and even claimed Umbrella man was a cop. Now they are trying to claim its a biker gang member and not only a biker gang member. But a racist biker gang member who is responsible for the riots all across the country as though somehow the protesters actually needed someone to push them to riot,loot and commit arson.Which is even more laughable when they didn't need any help what ever in the past to incited to loot,riot and burn down buildings.

This is what I mean in the other thread on how the mainstream media is trying place blame for these riots on right wingers and racists(racist doesn't equal right winger).

reasonable people who've learned about civics in school know that a protest in America is not equal to violence. Protests can become violent also spark violence in others. Guys walking a picket line are protesting an employer's practices but they are not violent in nature. In the 20s when companies hired goons to crack heads strikes did become violent. due to these goons. and it wasn't till jimmy hoffa era that unions really took hold. those people who died in the original strikes got nothing. then there were viet nam protests. some were very peaceful. till cops showed up with guns -real bullets btw.
teaparty was a form of protest of taxation w/o representation. pouring tea into the ocean. I imagine the British cracked some heads that night.
protest do become violent on their own as in watts riots times two.
but no protest is an American right, duty and tradition in a free country.

So they take away is, people believe that the protesters are so weak of mind that they cannot control their actions, and can be lead around and told what to do?

And you claim the Democrats actually care about people, while everything proves they think minorities, and specifically in this case, Blacks, cannot think for themselves.

I grew up with the phrase 'just because your friends jump off a bridge, means you have to also?'. I guess I was raised with that horrifying experience of 'White Privilege' that taught me critical thinking and how to think independently of others.

Whomever wrote that piece of toilet paper, is sucking you in. You don't even use your own 'God given' abilities to read something, analyze it and realize it's garbage. And this is what the DNC panders to.....

That is exactly what they believe. They are saying that when people are out protesting peacefully, all it takes is one person breaking a window, and they all become compelled to loot and break more windows, and then start the buildings on fire.

You know GG, that's probably not very far out of line.
