    A Democratic mayor is blaming "white men" for the destruction in major U.S. cities as protests turned to riots over the weekend following George Floyd's death. After looting broke out across her city on Sunday night, Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan tweeted that white people had co-opted "peaceful demonstrations" that became violent as the weekend wore on. "I want to acknowledge that much of the violence and destruction, both here in Seattle and across the country, has been instigated and perpetuated by white men," she said. In a follow-up tweet, Durkan asserted that white protesters were utilizing their "privilege" to divert...
  • 'The Bible is not a prop': Religious leaders, lawmakers outraged over Trump church visit

    Lawmakers and religious leaders voiced outrage at President Trump after police used tear gas and flash bangs against peaceful protesters outside the White House to clear the crowd for Trump to do a photo-op at St. John's church. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said Trump is "ripping" the country apart. "Tear-gassing peaceful protesters without provocation so that the president could pose for photos outside a church dishonors every value that faith teaches us,” Pelosi and Schumer said. "The President’s continued fanning of the flames of discord, bigotry and violence is cowardly, weak and dangerous." Father...
  • Biden Proposes Training Cops to Shoot Attackers in the Leg to Reduce Fatalities (Not satire)

    06/01/2020 8:29:24 PM PDT · by PROCON · 113 replies ^ | June 1, 2020 | Zachary Evans
    Joe Biden on Monday suggested that police forces could train officers to shoot attackers in the legs in order to reduce potential fatalities. There is “the idea that instead of standing there and teaching a cop when there’s an unarmed person, coming at him with a knife or something, to shoot him in the leg instead of in the heart,” Biden said. “There’s a lot of different things [policies] that can change.”

  • Multiple Biden campaign staffers donated to Minnesota group that pays bail for rioters

    At least 13 Joe Biden campaign workers have donated to an organization called the Minnesota Freedom Fund that pays for people's bail, according to Reuters. The group opposes the bail system, and pays the fees that enable people to avoid pre-trial detention, according to its website. A Biden spokesman told Reuters that the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee stands against cash bail as a "modern day debtors prison," though the spokesman did not answer inquires about if the campaign coordinated the donations, Reuters reported. "It’s disturbing that Joe Biden’s team would financially support the mayhem that is hurting innocent people and...

    CNN’s Van Jones said a “white, liberal Hillary Clinton supporter” could pose a bigger threat to African Americans than the Ku Klux Klan on Friday morning when discussing the state of race relations in the United States following the violent protests that erupted in Minneapolis, and the false accusations made against an African-American man by a white woman in Central Park in New York City. “It’s not the racist white person, who is in the Ku Klux Klan that we have to worry about. It’s the white, liberal Hillary Clinton supporter walking her dog in Central Park who would tell...

During an interview on “The Breakfast Club” with co-host Charlamagne Tha God, Biden said, “If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.” Lee made the false claim during an appearance on Fox News when asked about the remark during an interview with anchor Bret Baier.
