Skip to comments.The Police Identified The Masked Black Bloc “Umbrella Man” As A White Supremacist Using Anonymous Email Tip – He Hasn’t Been Named Or Charged

A man who vandalized an auto parts store in Minneapolis during protests over the death of George Floyd is believed to have ties to a white supremacy group and was trying to stir tensions, according to a new court filing.
They say he is a member of the Hells Angels biker gang and a member of the Aryan Cowboy Brotherhood, a white supremacist gang. Video circulated on social media in late May showing the Umbrella Man, dressed in black, smashing windows at an AutoZone store with a sledgehammer.
There is only one problem!
As Andy Ngo tweeted the Minneapolis Police say based on an email tip, the masked black bloc umbrella man seen breaking windows during the riots in May is allegedly a Hells Angels member & part of a neo-Nazi street gang. He has not been named or charged.
This is really weak evidence for Umbrella man being a Hells Angel member.
As we have heard from the mainstream media:
Authorities contacted the tipster, who said the information came from another person who wanted to remain anonymous out of fear of the man.
An email tip sent in last week alerted authorities about the mans intentions to sow discord and racial unrest, Minneapolis police Officer Emily Christensen said in the affidavit, which was filed Monday.
Until the actions of the person your affiant has been calling Umbrella man, the protests had been relatively peaceful, the warrant said. The actions of this person created an atmosphere of hostility and tension. Your affiant believes that this individuals sole aim was to incite violence.
The protests werent peaceful for sure even before the so-called umbrella man started rioting!
This is very confusing, are they saying he joined Antifa, that he just happened to be around and decided to break some things, or that he was trying to frame the people who were already burning down much of MN without his help?
Umbrellas are a very un-biker-ly type of weapon. Are they sure about this?
Heck, 60 mph in the pouring rain on the Interstate with no bridges to rest beneath make umbrellas seem somewhat superfluous./s
So Antifa is a white supremist group now? So hard to follow.
Probably a news release from jerry nadless’ office. He seems to know all about the underground movement to make the peaceful PROtests look violent.
This is the new narrative; that ‘white supremacists’ started the riots. He was much more likely Antifa, but they are using anonymous court filings to “authenticate” their lies.
They’re still trying to pin this on supremacist groups instead of antifa, I see.
It only took 2 months to finally come up with an alleged white supremacist that is responsible for ALL the rioting in this country. He is the one spark that ignited all the rampaging. Apparently.
Absolutely. And, as indicated in a post above, have you ever seen a biker carrying an umbrella! Antifa, umbrella is standard riot gear.
These are ANTIFA but the cops relabel them as "White Supremacists".
In Soviet camps antifa were Nazi war criminals avoiding trial by converting to communism and snitching on Russians, Ukarianians and other Germans for Stalin...
... and backpacks. What is it with the backpacks?
Any website that has to proclaim itself as True Conservative News you know is not true conservative by any means. Its a left wing site masquerading as a conservative site posting faux conservative information.
Umbrellas are used by Antifa to blunt the use of pepper spray. Backpacks are for storage of a change of clothing for when they vanish after action. The change to non-black and also its useful for carrying bottles of caustic liquid etc. They will also carry a bottle of milk for washing out eyes when they do get pepper sprayed or tear gassed. They can also conceal a collapsible baton inside the backpack.
I saw UMBRELLA MAN.....and there is NO WAY he’s a Hell’s Angel BIKER!! They would KILL him...he was SWISHY as hell.
You notice the article does not name the umbrella man? How then could he have been identified. This is BULL SH!T!
Inicidentally, MSDNC was making that claim on the day that video was first shown. . . They asserted he had to be either an undercover police officer breaking those windows, or some White Supremacists. . . Fomenting rioting. He couldnt be one of the oh, so peaceful demonstrators. That wasnt possible.
I was listening to the scanner that night and all the action started at Tar-ghetto across the street from the 2nd precinct.
It's as if they are trying to find a video to pin their benghazi on.
Walz was blaming white supremacists very early on without any of this crap evidence.
They're covering for Soros paid agitators.
Let’s just shoot them in action and whoever needs to mourn can do so, either way I’m good.
I always thought the umbrellas were used as a offensive weapon. Push forward with them having a sharp point on the end and hiding the identity of the pusher.
I never thought about a clothing change in the back packs. Thought they might be carrying water and food in them for midnight meals.
