People have been cooped up. Disenfranchised. Laid off. Limited with necessities. Overwhelmed by economic uncertainty and terrified by the virus. They see police brutality in the early days of reopening the quarantine. They saw banks and corporations bailed out and reopening while Main Street businesses do not have the support to reopen. There is no leadership from the one position in this country that has the power and the privilege to unite the American population, like no other movie star, rockstar, or state politician. That person has clearly been sending out dog whistles to neo-nazi bigots from the beginning days of holding that position. The double standards have been clear as day. The extreme bias against specific groups of Americans has been clear as day. Believe your own eyes and ears. Those who believe they are going to be “replaced” and are going to lose their dominance in society are the ones who are using the protests to reinforce their misguided beliefs of innate thuggery in those they believe they are superior to.

“Justice does not exist if it is selective.
If it only belongs to those who have privilege, those who have access.
That is not justice. And there is no validation of who we are as Americans if we cannot guarantee that every person who lives here deserves to have respect and to have the same value as ascribed their humanity.
You are speaking up for those who are silenced, but even more for those whose rage overwhelms their ability to articulate what they need to see.
The world doesn’t change when we cast a ballot but the world does change when we remain silent.
It gets worse. It gets colder, it gets more committed to silence of those who do not belong in their estimation. But when we work, when we fight, when we demand that our votes be counted, we do see change. We see people stepping up and saying that they want more, and we see young people who didn’t believe their voices matter finding the words to articulate what they need and you’re doing it.”

The truth is – Be white and you can refuse to comply, shout obscenities, threaten to “kill” the officer, throw your license at him, rant and rave and call him a “stupid fucking pig”, approach aggressively and retreat at will, have your spouse act like a self righteous bitch, express self righteous indignation about your “baby” being in the car and you will live to see another day. Just be white. We need massive police reform in this country and we need it now. #ThisIsSystemicRacismInAction #BLM #DemilitarizeThePolice

The MAGA movement hits the streets — and Trump latches on
Some Trump supporters have taken it upon themselves to police cities experiencing unrest. And Trump isn’t condemning the behavior as he pushes a law-and-order election message. At this point, Walter said, the racial aspect of the BLM movement might not even play into the criticism of protesters anymore, pointing out that Trump seemed to have lost little support among Black voters.
“Probably that’s because some portion of Black folks who live in these places that are already harmed, or in danger of getting harmed, are getting disturbed,” he claimed.
A Quinnipiac poll released Wednesday showed Trump had 11 percent support among Black voters — slightly higher than the 7 percent he’d polled at in July.
Trump’s push to peg the violence to Democratic policy failures will likely continue into the final leg of the election — and absent a sustained campaign to condemn militia action, there is no impetus for his militia supporters to stop infiltrating American cities, either.
“It’s just crazy to think this is going on in the heartland,” said Posobiec. “If we’re talking about Main Street, this is Main Street, USA being set on fire, and a political stalemate, and law enforcement at all levels wasn’t responding.” https://www.politico.com/news/2020/09/04/trump-maga-protests-409251?cid=apn
