FoxNews.com reports that
The White House was under a brief lockdown Friday night as protests erupted across the country over the death of Minneapolis man George Floyd, bringing tensions to a boiling point and forcing one of the Twin Cities to issue a curfew while demonstrators clashed with police across the U.S.
Fox News and other members of the press were immediately moved inside as the White House went into lockdown. A dozen reporters were said to be inside the West Wing. One of the protestors was later taken into custody by the Secret Service outside the White House Friday night.
Floyd, a black man, died in police custody this week after a white officer pinned him down by pressing his knee into the back of Floyd’s neck while Floyd repeatedly said he couldn’t breathe. The officer, Derek Chauvin, was fired and on Friday was charged with murder. Three other police officers were also fired but have not been charged.
Minneapolis authorities have imposed an overnight curfew in an attempt to prevent more destruction and, at time, violent protests that had pursued for three days.
The Minneapolis Police Department’s Third Precinct was broken into by a crowd of protesters and set fire, Thursday night.
Protests have broken out across the country. In Atlanta, demonstrators spray-painted and broke windows of CNN’s Atlanta headquarters.
One protester climbed up onto the CNN building and waived a “black lives matter” sign as hundreds of other protesters pelted police with bottles.
Police officers reportedly backed their lines away and ordered the protesters to leave, threatening arrest if they did not.
Several of the bottles thrown contained accelerate, and an American flag was lit on fire as protestors yelled at the police, “Quit your jobs.”
Protesters later threw rocks and smoke grenades into the lobby and fired BB rounds, according to reporters on the ground.
The protest reportedly started peacefully and quickly became destructive after there was an interaction between a police officer and a protester outside the headquarters.
Protesters climbed onto parked police vehicles, smashed the windows and lit one of the cars on fire.
A firecracker was also thrown at police officers barricading the CNN Center.
Several buildings in the downtown area in Atlanta have been vandalized, according to local news outlets.
Large crowds also took to the streets in New York City for the second day Friday. Roughly 70 people were arrested after the protests became rowdy, traffic was shut down and several police officers were injured.
NYPD officers reportedly became violent using their nightsticks and pepper spray outside the Barclays Center in Brooklyn Friday night.
Some of the protesters were said to be carrying brass knuckles and knives, while others reportedly threw trash and garbage cans at NYPD officers.
Protesters chanted “I can’t breathe” — the last words of Eric Garner, who died in police custody in 2014 after being taken down by NYPD officers on Staten Island, drawing a parallel to Floyd’s death earlier this week.
Hundreds of people turned up in Charlotte, N.C., to march in protest Friday night. But the demonstrations turned destructive as at least one police car tire was slashed and several windows were broken at the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police substation, according to a local news outlet.
Police officers responded by throwing tear gas at protesters and several people have been arrested, the police department said.
A demonstration in Denver also turned violent Friday and three people were taken into custody.
“Let not the story be about the riots and protests. Let’s keep the focus on the life that was lost,” Denver Mayor Michael Hancock said.
“I want to express our nation’s deepest condolences and most heartfelt sympathies to the family of George Floyd,” President Trump said at a roundtable Friday. “I spoke to members of the family, terrific people.”
Andy Ngo, the journalist who was attacked by an Antifa Group has reported that Antifa and Back Lives Matter are both involved in the riots we are witnessing.
If you go to RefuseFascism.org, an Antifa organization, you will find this statement
“Refuse Fascism will be in the streets demanding justice for George Floyd. We call on anyone, from any race, who is standing on the sidelines right now to join the chorus of outrage and raise your voices.”
On Thursday, April 27th, 2017, the following information was posted in an article found on gatewaypundit.com…
Violent domestic terrorist Bill Ayers is officially linked to Antifa through his group “Refuse Fascism”.
Ayers is infamous for the Weather Underground, a domestic terror organization he co-founded with other degenerates, and for bombing the Pentagon.
“Refuse Fascism“, a fascist organization that wishes to inhibit and deny the speech of conservatives, is partly funded by George Soros. It has organizers like Bill Ayers and is targeting youth across the country with the intention of indoctrinating and brainwashing individuals who nascent politically. We know Ayers was associated with Barrack Obama and is a big supporter of various socialists and communists as well as violent terrorists.
Today, it has come out that Ayers is partnering with Antifa in the spread of militant violence against pro-America demonstrators. Leftists have historically turned Ayers into a folklore figure who they cherish and respect despite his violent past.
The anti-police Black Lives Matter movement started in 2014 following the shooting death of black youth Michael Brown by white police officer Darren Wilson.
Rioting and violent protests erupted nationwide after a grand jury refused to indict Wilson, saying he acted in self-defense. Residents of the predominantly black community of Ferguson, Missouri, claimed officer Wilson was let off because of systemic racism.
In 2014, then-president Barack Obama’s Department of Justice later cleared officer Darren Wilson of any wrongdoing.
Billionaire investor George Soros has donated millions of dollars to Black Lives Matter through his Open Society Foundation.
George Soros has financed “protestors” for years now, going as far as trying to infiltrate Republican Nominee Donald J. Trump’s Campaign Rallies before he 2016 Presidential Election.
His deep involvement in the Ferguson Riots, along with his funding of Back Lives Matter and Antifa Groups like Refuse Fascism reveals a pattern of behavior which makes him the likely money behind the “spontaneous” protests which have erupted in cities like Minneapolis, Chicago, New York, Atlanta, and Los Angeles and across the street from the White House.
In my opinion, it is time to freeze the assets of George Soros and to deport him from our Sovereign Nation which he seeks to “radically change”…
…while we still have a Constitutional Republic left.
