Per Jon Collins at MPR News- “South Minneapolis: I know this sounds crazy. But it’s 2020. And I’m working on story now about white supremacists coming to Minneapolis to foment race war under cover of the protests. I need your help, and your friends help. Please refer anyone with real, credible info (not rumor or speculation) or sources to me at (I’m gonna redact that)
What the heck – let’s give this a shot:
I’m Mitch Berg. I’m a talk show host at WWTC-AM in Eagan, and I write the blog “Shotinthedark.info”.
Last week you put out a call to your listener mailing lists, looking for confirmed sightings of “white supremacists”.
I’m genuinely curious – did you find anything?
While I am a very overt conservative (I went from Bob Collins’ Christmas Card list to…well, not on it over the past few years), I also spent time covering radical groups of all stripes back when I was in the mainstream media.
And while I realize this is very unlikely, I’d like to invite you on my show (Saturday, 1-3PM) to talk about your findings. Because it’s everyone’s city.
Thanks, and stay safe
Given that I saw a lot of “AmeriKKKa” and “Destroy the 1%” graffiti, but not a single swastika or “14 words” reference, I’m thinking the Twin Cities either got the most inept “white supremacists” in the history of bigotry, or they were the most ingenious – fiendishly tricking a whole city full of leftists into doing the job for them.
