    Man who interviewed sign-bearing Trump supporter day he was killed believes shooting may be politically motivated -- a black man was shot holding a support-trump sign. Should the main-stream media continue to keep that a secret?

    How come these "names" - of people killed in these riots -- are not "publically known"? household names? -- is main stream media "keeping that a secret" too?

    key conjunction being "and". I'm am certain that conservatives will kill antfia if they walk on their property or threaten their families. Floyd's death should not be censored. Same can be said for the 24. Or those cops that are being persecuted by their own government. I'll take this a step further and say that CNN should not have been fire bombed.

    I dare say that a lot more than 24 have been killed since his death. Just take Chicago alone and you can double or triple the number 24 deaths you listed. Yes, the police have their problems. However, the vast majority of murders in the U.S. are not caused by the police.

    CNN should be shut down for contributing to riots and fake news. They are not news, but propaganda of the left and rioters.

    It's sort of an ironic justice. But at the same time. They have the right to do business, and have their staff NOT on fire.

    A study was done a couple of years ago and it was determined that if all lethal measures taken by police to restrain/stop criminals among the black population were to stop tomorrow (and assuming no spike in crime resulted from that "stop") - it would not make a dent on the vast number of black men who die due to homicide each year. 2300 vs 12 killed by police I think it was over a 6 month period of time across major cities.

    well I do agree that there should be a "no shouting fire in a crowded theater" law for news organizations who are overtly race-baiting and goading groups to riot for the sake of ratings and political agenda.

    I don’t suppose the name Cliven Bundy rings any bells, does it?

    Here are some tips for improving the quality of your post:

    1. Explain who Cliven Bundy is and provide a link to a page that contains information about him.

    2. Explain how this person is somehow relevant to my post that you quoted.

    3. Go on to make the point you wanted to make.

    If you disagree with me on a topic, posting vague one-liners isn't going to win you the argument.

    Cliven Bundy is a rancher in Utah who’s had a long running beef with the federal government regarding some bogus notions he has about whether or not he should have to pay fees to graze his cattle on public land. A few years ago, the feds finally had had enough and send some officers to seize some of his cattle to pay off his outstanding debt. He and a whole bunch of supporters decided to respond by staging an armed standoff in the middle of the desert. The feds took a very light touch and eventually backed down altogether, but there existed the very real possibility for things to get way way more bloody than anything we’ve seen in these protests. Fox News commentators were very much on the side of Bundy. A couple years later, some of Bundy’s kids and other associates took over a federal park building, which eventually led to a car chase and one of the associates being gunned down by feds when he tried to pull a gun on them.

    I mentioned him to rebut your claim that “conservatives don’t riot and kill.” Your ignorance of the Bundy standoffs suggests to me that, basically, you don’t really know what you’re talking about and that you ought to do some homework before making such assessments. Conservatives can and do threaten and engage in violence as a form of political protest. Had officers taken a harsher position (like they have at George Floyd protests) during the Bundy standoff or even during the armed anti-lockdown protests in Michigan, things could have gone much differently.

    He sounds more like one of those sovereign citizen hooligans than a genuine conservative. But even if he were a conservative, he is certainly an outlier because conservatives generally don't riot and cause chaos like antifa. Look at the Tea Party protests that happened while Obama was president. They were peaceful. The only people misbehaving at those events were the left-wing counter protestors who disingenuously berated the Tea Party conservatives as "racist" because there weren't a whole lot of non-whites with them.

    Conservatives caused quite a bit of chaos in Charlottesville.

    And it'd be interesting to see how conservatives would react if police reacted as severely to their protests as they often do to left-wing protests.

    White nationalists aren't conservatives.

    I see an eagerness to draw distinctions between “conservatives” and white nationalists or “conservatives” and sovereign citizens but no problems with conflating liberals and leftists with antifa and other rioters.

    I'm sorry if I conflated antifa with ordinary liberals. It was an accident. An ordinary liberal isn't an antifa for the same reason an ordinary conservative isn't a white nationalist.
