Democratic leaders in Minnesota falsely blame outsiders for riots


Minnesota’s Democratic Governor Tim Walz has blamed the rioting in Minneapolis on right-wing “white supremacists” and drug cartels. The Democratic mayors of Minneapolis, Jacob Frey and St. Paul, Melvin Carter, blamed the mayhem on professional agitators from out of state. So much for the COVID-19 lockdowns.

However, evidence has emerged that proves that none of this posturing is based on any facts whatsoever.

Traditional attempt to blame riots on outsiders falls flat

Local reporters at KMSP-TV, have found that the “overwhelming majority” of rioters arrested in the greater Minneapolis-St. Paul metropolitan area are Minnesotans. This can be easily verified by searching the online jail log of Hennepin County. Most inmates have Minnesota addresses. At last count, the log shows 45 people arrested for rioting, unlawful assembly, stolen property, burglary, or robbery on the last couple of days of May. Of these, 38 have Minnesota addresses, as uncovered by reporters at KMSP-TV.

In the face of this news story, St. Paul Mayor Melvin Carter retracted his claim that only out-of-state rioters had been arrested in his city.

Fingers have been pointing in dozens of directions to lay blame for the riots. One security specialist believes the culprits are organized far-left and anarchist agitators.

Security consultants studying the riots have concluded that the most dedicated rioters are ‘hard-core protesters far-left or anarchists.’ Far-right groups have not participated in a significant way. People don’t travel out of state to loot big box stores like Target.

Anarchists tend to see violent confrontation with the police as a priority and a goal in and of itself. Past rioting has shown that peaceful protests can turn violent if organized agitators get involved.

Soros-funded anarchists to be branded terrorist group


Attorney General Bill Barr has expressed agreement that much of the rioting is to be blamed on “far-left extremist groups.” Antifa, for example, gets part of its funding from Democratic super-donor George Soros.

Barr has said that “In many places, it appears the violence is planned, organized, and driven by anarchistic and far-left extremists, using Antifa-like tactics, many of whom travel from out of state to promote the violence.”

Barr has also pointed out that, “violence instigated and carried out by Antifa and other similar groups in connection with the rioting is domestic terrorism and will be treated accordingly.”

President Trump has announced that America is designating Antifa as a terrorist organization. Antifa may actually pride itself on this move. The organization does not have centralized leadership, making it harder to pin down. How far left-anarchism has been quietly spreading in Minnesota remains unclear.
