Response to Aldean. What most EVERYONE still gets wrong about Floyd protests.

The worst of the violence and destruction at the protests, and ALL the murders of law officers were committed by members of RightWing terrorist groups using the cover of the protests to add chaos. Their intent was to get BLM and antifa blamed, escalate the chaos and tension, and trigger the race war they’ve been working towards for many years.

These terrorists left their ‘small towns’ in Texas, Minnesota, and NC and traveled to Minneapolis to start a civil war with black protestors taking the blame - blamed as they were blamed in Aldean’s video.

A man who had been part of a far-right group that wants to foment a civil war admitted in federal court Thursday he traveled to Minneapolis from the San Antonio area to sow chaos after the police murder of George Floyd.
Ivan Harrison Hunter, 24, of Boerne, Texas, pleaded guilty to a single count of rioting. The charge carries a maximum prison term of five years.
………

Hunter admitted that he fired 13 rounds from an AK-47-style rifle into the 3rd precinct police station on May 28, 2020, as other rioters looted and set fire to the building after police evacuated. No one was struck by the gunfire.

After shooting at the building, Hunter was recorded on video high-fiving another person and yelling "Justice for Floyd!”….

Prosecutors say Hunter came to Minneapolis in the days following Floyd’s murder after corresponding on Facebook with Michael Solomon of New Brighton, Minn., and Benjamin Teeter of Hampstead, N.C. The men had been part of the “Boogaloo Bois,” a group that exploits tensions to further violence.

GeorgeWBush, HunterBiden, and Republican Party's 2-Tiered justice.

As a drug-addicted fortunate son, Hunter acted foolishly, sometimes criminally - used heavy drugs, alcohol, hung with strippers and hookers, under-reported income to dodge taxes, and constantly tried to score money-making deals while high as a kite and while his father was VP.

It didn’t bother Republicans one bit when George W Bush acted that same way in the 70s and 80s.

Republican voters didn’t think GWBush’s decades of bad behavior rose to any disqualifying level in politics or governance in 2000.

Republicans made Bush President.

Hunter is facing charges.


Republicans are hypocrites. Remind them at every opportunity.

Youth vote should know what Dominionist Republicans have in store

for this country. I think once this Supreme Court strips all the barriers of church and state, it will be more like what happened in Iran in the 70s.

Iran shortly before theocracy took full control of the nation:

Iran before the Islamic Revolution of 1979 was quite a different country from the one we see today. It was secular, Western-oriented and allowed a fair amount of cultural freedom. After the revolution, Iran turned into an Islamic state abiding the Sharia law. This not only changed the country’s foreign relations, political climate, and economy but also the lives of common people, not to mention how it changed the women’s role in the new society.

It might seem unbelievable today, but Iranian women of the time before the Islamic Revolution also took a modern approach when it came to 70s fashion. They would dress up just like their Western counterparts and would even show some skin. These vintage magazine scans give us a rough idea of what a woman could wear at that time.
