    White supremacists involved in the violence of BLM demonstrations
    Today, 09:40 AM
    I became curious when in Raleigh demonstrations this weekend those arrested for violence were mostly white.

    Police: Richmond riots instigated by white supremacists disguised as Black Lives Matter


    RICHMOND, Va. – Riots in downtown Richmond over the weekend were instigated by white supremacists under the guise of Black Lives Matter, according to law enforcement officials.

    Protesters tore down police tape and pushed forward toward Richmond police headquarters, where they set a city dump truck on fire.

    Police declared the event an “unlawful assembly” and ordered people to leave, later deploying tear gas.

    Six people were arrested. The mayor of Richmond thanked the Black Lives Matter protesters he said tried to stop the white supremacists from spearheading the violence.

    “Their mission is simple, not the Richmond we know,” said Mayor Levar Stoney.

    Besides the police department, damage also occurred in and around the VCU campus.

    I watched the short video.
    One of the "white supremacists" (Wendell Lundy) is black.
    Perhaps he joined as part of an affirmative action program?

    Affirmative action requires one raisin in every loaf of white bread.

    Careful. That may be overstating the case.

    Read this: Did white supremacists really orchestrate riots in Richmond? It’s complicated.

    According to the link there were some boogaloo boys identified. That is not quite the same thing.

    Ultimately, there will have to be some sort of federal commission set up to investigate the riots and who did what, to sort all this out. I'm not sure how it could be done as we get close to an election and a great deal of internal political dissension, where they argue over who gets to investigate whom.

    There have been Jewish, black and mixed neo-Nazis and neo-Confederates. LGBT, too.

    For example, Candace Owens is a Black woman publically espousing and advertising what are, essentially, Neonazi talking points.

    Definitely. You didn’t know the amazing progression that has been made in racist relations to promote a more fair and balanced racist.

    Look at the history....

    He is the stereotype of a token black guy. He's always trotted out when white racists with a love for the Confederacy need a black face to deflect charges of racism off of. It only fools the ignorant. They won't have him to show off for too long since he's up there in age and he seems to be the only black nutter they can find to publicly espouse such nonsense.

    I find that amusing because BLM and Antifa are both white supremacist groups (they both believe that minorities are inferior and 'need help' to function normally in society, as well as support segregation). Besides, if it's a real white power group or people who are they? This is false report as far as can tell. The names aren't mentioned because then this becomes a liable defamation or slander case. Fake news.

    They're just creating an enemy out of thin air to deny any responsibility. Anywhere Antifa and BLM show up there are riots and violence, and that's about the end of the story. There are some people who are groupies that really do just want to protect lives. But, they're just roped into the cause, lol.

    I don't support BLM because it's anti-white overtly, just like I wouldn't support anyone that was anti-black, brown, yellow, and so on. Antifa & BLM both condone violence, so they all can suck it, lol.

    The ones I know of were consumed by self-hatred.

    The above is false, and not meaningful 'Fake News.'

    It was law enforcement that determined the active role of white supremacists.

    I wouldn't go all out derogitive yet I think the term is House ~~~..

    I actually looked into the black confederacy from a historical standpoint and concluded there will always be that paradox of advocacy no matter what is in the reticle.

    Yes, that is the term for people like him. The black community appears to mostly view him as an embarrassment.

    That alone doesn't mean they're telling the truth. We've had plenty of DA's that have lied about cases or fabricated contexts. If a group is responsible I want names... Saying 'someone' did 'something' isn't going to be enough. You really have to be a fool to believe this these days there have been so many false reports and without the whole who, what, where, why, when, there just isn't a story. I can say 'Antifa' did anything I want, but it doesn't mean they did unless I can supply proof. Local officials have been caught lying several times in recent months and it's just not believable in the first place. First of all, you just have to get on twitter for about five minutes to see what BLM and Antifa do to people they think of as white supremacists and then think about how unbelievable one of them sneaking into their ranks is. Most of the protestors/rioters know one another directly... I find this completely absurd...
