  • Will It Be Riot Season Again in 2024?

    City Journal ^ | 4 Dec, 2023 | Christopher F. Rufo
    Conservatives must learn the lessons of 2020—and prepare. The resurgence of public protests in support of Hamas has revealed a disturbing truth: the left-wing rioting following George Floyd’s death in 2020 was not an anomaly, but a tactic that activists can repurpose for any cause. Whether by coincidence or design, these recent outbursts could be a dress rehearsal for possible violence during next year’s election campaign. Conservative leaders must prepare for that prospect. To prevent 2020 from repeating itself in 2024, conservatives need to consider what might spark a riot, how it can be prevented, and how to understand and...
  • Those Who Cry “Far Right” Have No Idea What’s Happening in Dublin

    You might think that a government faced with a barbaric public stabbing of schoolchildren and an unprecedented night of rioting in its capital city would extend condolences to the victims, take a deep breath, and try to figure out how a city managed to spiral out of control on its watch. But instead, Thursday’s riots in Dublin were met by a shallow, one-dimensional analysis by all of the key authorities involved: to blame the “far right.”For example, Garda Commissioner Drew Harris blamed the violence on the streets on a “hooligan faction driven by far right ideology.” Taoiseach Leo Varadkar pledged...

    Two far-left rioters who pleaded guilty to burning down an Atlanta Wendy’s during the Black Lives Matter riots in 2020 have been sentenced to five years of probation by a Fulton County judge. The Wendy’s was the site of the fatal, officer-involved shooting of Rayshard Brooks on June 12, 2020. Brooks had fallen asleep in the drive thru and attacked the responding Atlanta Police Officer, Garret Rolfe, when he was detained. Brooks was shot and killed after he tried to grab Rolfe’s taser, leading to riots not long after George Floyd’s death in Minneapolis. Atanta’s BLM chapter, along with other...

    A former FBI informant stabbed Derek Chauvin, the ex-police officer who was convicted for murdering George Floyd, according to court documents filed on Dec. 1. John Turscak, 52, stabbed Mr. Chauvin 22 times with an "improvised knife" in federal prison in Arizona, according to the documents. Mr. Turscak was subdued by responding corrections officers. Mr. Turscak later told officers he would have killed Mr. Chauvin if the officers had not responded so quickly, federal prosecutors said in the documents. The stabbing took place on Nov. 24 at about 12:30 p.m. Mr. Turscak waived his Miranda rights and told FBI agents...

    DUBLIN — Overlooked in the chaotic situation that unfolded in recent days, Irish citizens made history as they engaged in violent rioting while completely sober for the first time ever. "This is truly unprecedented," said Professor Blake Rumsey, sociologist and lead historian at the Institute of Knowledge. "Throughout recorded history, we've never seen this type of Irish upheaval in the absence of copious amounts of beer, whiskey, and Bailey's Irish Cream. It is both surprising and impressive to see Irish citizens proving their collective ability to stage a riot while not the least bit intoxicated." Irish citizens in Dublin began...
  • Yes, there was violence inside the Capitol on J6, but the police committed it

    American Thinker ^ | 11/25/2023 | Andrea Widburg
    The newly released J6 footage is a revelation because it shows that the “insurrection” was not by, of, and for the people, it was by, of, and for the government. When it comes to events inside the Capitol, there’s growing evidence that the violence came not from the people peacefully and reverentially wandering around but from law enforcement. Certainly, the most recent footage appears to bear that out. There are two narratives about January 6. The dominant one is the Democrat narrative. Practically within minutes of events on January 6, every Democrat politician and media outlet was claiming an “insurrection.”...

    Disorder has broken out in Dublin city centre, amid anger about the attack. One of the children and a woman are being treated for serious injuries, police said. A suspect has been detained. Police have said a "complete hooligan lunatic faction driven by far-right ideology" is behind violent protests in Dublin after three young children were injured in a stabbing outside a primary school. Protesters have let off flares and fireworks at police as one of the children, a five-year-old girl, and a woman in her 30s are being treated in hospital for serious injuries. Officers with riot shields...

    A sobering new documentary aims to debunk the false narratives surrounding the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis and the trial of Officer Derek Chauvin.“The Fall of Minneapolis,” produced by Alpha News journalist Liz Collin, also examines the tragic impacts of the Black Lives Matter riots, including the collapse of law and order, that continues to this day.Before the George Floyd riots, Collin was a popular Emmy-award-winning news anchor for WCCO-TV in Minneapolis.In 2020, she faced withering criticism over her marriage to Bob Kroll, then the head of the Police Officers Federation of Minneapolis. Collin told talk show host Megyn...
  • You’ll Never Guess Who’s Helping to Fund and Coordinate the Radical Pro-Hamas Protests Happening in America Right Now

    American cities and college campuses are being overrun by radical leftists protesting in favor of Hamas. These protests are not organic. They are being funded and organized and you’ll never guess who is helping to do it.It’s not George Soros, although no one would be surprised if he was involved in some way.No, this is being done by Code Pink activist Jodie Evans and her Marxist multi-millionaire husband.
  • Glenn Beck, on 8/30 show, exposes leftists’ plans for October chaos in D.C.

    Tuesday, August 30, 2011, 3:25 PM Glenn Beck opened the first hour of his three-hour show today by calling attention to a plan by extreme leftists to bring disruption to daily life in Washington, D.C. during October. (It is presumed that the mostly white “duuuude, let's like protest” crowd in October will not have the level of equal-opportunity courage require to venture toward creating chaos in predominantly-black areas of predominantly-black Washington, D.C.) Beck, who for much of the previous two weeks, was in Israel as part of his “Restoring Courage” solidarity event, started his show by saying “There’s a disturbing...

    End of The American Dream ^ | 10/23/23 | Michael Snyder
    Really bad policies lead to really bad consequences, and our leaders have been making absolutely disastrous decisions for decades. As a result, the streets of America are now teeming with thieves, drug addicts, prostitutes, violent criminals and sexual predators. We have raised an entire generation of young Americans that has no moral foundation whatsoever, and every day we are adding even more immigrants from third world countries to the mix. Many of those immigrants have no intention of following our laws, and they are fueling the explosive growth of criminal gangs all over the nation. On top of everything else,...

    Over the Christmas weekend, Chicago surpassed the 750-murder mark for 2016. But as blacks lay dying on the streets of Chicago’s South and West Sides, a Black Lives Matter offshoot is more interested in traveling overseas to learn “resistance” from terrorists. The Dream Defenders bills itself as “an uprising of communities in struggle, shifting culture through transformational organizing.” But an investigation conducted by the Haym Salomon Center reveals the group’s embrace of anti-Semitism and collaboration with a State Department-designated terror group. In August, Black Lives Matter singled out Israel for condemnation, declaring it an “apartheid” state engaged in “genocide.” These...

    Justin Christopher Moore was sentenced on Wednesday after being convicted in a plot to burn down the Seattle Police Officers Guild during the BLM Antifa riots in the summer of 2020. Moore was sentenced to 41 months in prison for manufacture of homemade bombs with intent to burn down government property. "Moore’s offense was extremely dangerous and created a substantial risk of injury to numerous bystanders," said Assistant US Attorney Todd Greenberg. "Moore carried the box of 12 Molotov cocktails in a crowd of over 1,000 people who were participating in the protest march. All of them were in harm’s...

    The chair of the Minnesota Freedom Fund board was arrested late last month for fentanyl possession. The Bloomington Police Department confirmed with Alpha News that Valentina McKenzie was arrested Aug. 31 at 78th Street East and 12th Avenue East at 10:35 p.m. “She was booked and released from our jail pending out of custody charges,” said Deputy Chief Kimberly Clauson.

No charges...

    American Action News ^ | 07/21/2023 | Alexander J. Williams III
    The recent resolution of a class-action lawsuit in New York City has ignited a fierce debate, challenging the core tenets of justice and social order. The settlement, which involves the city agreeing to distribute $13.7 million to individuals who partook in the 2020 George Floyd unrest, has been met with significant backlash. This is largely due to the perception that the decision is disproportionately lenient towards the involved rioters, many of whom were not legally held accountable for their actions. Under the settlement, the 1,380 plaintiffs, who allege that their rights were violated by the New York Police Department (NYPD),...

    It happened on the 13th in New York City where some group of boys in an area of Manhattan began to go around removing and stomping on the hats factory workers were wearing. It ended up turning into an all out brawl when they moved on from the factory workers to the dock workers’ who immediately fought back. The brawl ended up stopping all traffic on the Manhattan Bridge! Nobody died, but the violent riot did have to be broken up by the police and people were sent to jail (not for long though! Most of those boys were teenagers...
