There was a shooting at the 4th Precinct demonstrations, late Monday night. Three men, described by BLM as “white supremacists” – and in retrospect it appears they were, although to be fair some elements in BLM call everyone a white supremacist – shot five protesters. Thankfully, none of the injuries are “serious”, although let’s be honest, if I get hit by a bullet, it’s freaking serious.
But it’s the left we’re talking about, here. It’s a crisis. Waste not, want not.
How’s That Again?: The three shooters – apparently identifiable as “White Supremacists” by dint of wearing masks, were being “escorted away from the protest”, according to the media’s accounts, or (according to these two people in, er, masks), “escorted” rather more aggressively:
Anyway, the three men – whose arrest the Strib reports – ran, and then opened fire, hitting five. It took about 12 hours for the police to catch them.
They were apparently white men, some of whose Facebook pages bespeak some kind of Caucasianist sympathies, we’re told.
More on the accused later.
Until then, let’s talk about what happened during those 12 hours:
Thanks, Betsy!: Now, if you’re not in the Twin Cities, let’s set the stage for you; Mayors Betsy Hodges of Minneapolis and Chris Coleman of Saint Paul have done everything possible under, and beyond, the law to accomodate Black Lives Matter. They’ve allowed BLM to repeatedly block freeways and mass transit during rush hour; they not only let BLM block Snelling Avenue for four hours during the State Fair – one of the busiest days of the year – they gave them a full, aggressive escort on their march. And they’ve tolerated a protest around a police station that has at times blocked access, teetered on the edge of violence, and required drawing police from other parts of the city for nights on end. Rumor has it the police leave mints on the pillows of Rashad Turner and Nekima Pounds-Levy.
And yet, when the chips were down, Minneapolis NAACP boss Raeisha Williams knew exactly who to blame:
No word if the suspects are sleepers for the MPD.
What? You Thought There Was Going To Be An Article About Habitual Lying That Didn’t Include Heather Martens?: Heather Martens of “Protect” MN blamed carry permittees for the shooting.
The suspects apparently are not carry permit holders.
I’m not going to quote it. I’m not going to link it. Heather Martens doesn’t deserve the attention of any sentient being (which may be why the media gives her so much credence).
But if you’re in the media? Ask yourself why you keep citing this idiot.
