Unthinking Majority wrote:I think the white nationalists and racists are almost always the instigators of the violence, though not the only ones committing violence. There have been a few incidents of people on the physically assaulting neo-Nazis and white nationalists, as well as people attacking or killing police officers (ie: Dallas shooting in 2016) in retaliation for police shooting black people.
And again, this is comparing widespread violence with sporadic and isolated cases of violence.
There has been violence in terms of rioting by white nationalists (ie: Capital riots), and also rioting by both minorities (ie: BLM)
You keep repeating this unjust accusation that BLM rioted. This is untrue.
The fact that some people in black communities rioted at the same time as BLM protests does not mean BLM rioted.
and their supporters of all races (Antifa etc) during police protests,
Yes, protesters protesting police brutality always riot, according to the police.
And, according to the police, this justifies the brutality that always follows.
I personally know several people charged with assaulting a police officer during a protest. One was minding her own business when a cop grabbed her by her hair and pulled her backwards onto the ground. As she was falling, her arm brushed against him. This is why she was charged with assault.
To portray this behaviour as violence or rioting by protesters is to simply believe whatever cops say to defend their brutality.
Charlottesville etc. Race relations are very bad in the US country right now. And again yes I do believe that white racists are almost always the hateful instigators in this violence and riots.
Yes, Charlottesville is another example where the vast majority of the violence was perpetrated by the right, but people like to pretend that both sides were responsible.
