ANTIFA and BLM are funded. These people showed up in buses to different cities. They were organized and had weapons that were way to powerful to have in their back pocket. The riots had nothing to do with the death of George Floyd. These people live everywhere and are a home grown terrorist organization. Their chatter is encrypted. You saw the violence. They have now made up stories of right wing military people of trying to incite violence to take our country down which doesn't make sense since it's the left doing the violence and hates this country we all know that. Spread this word and give thanks to the black people who destroyed so many this past week for money.

That prog in Republican clothing fully demonstrated why it was absolutely necessary to can him. He would have continued to attempt to undermine the administration at every turn. Now in the private sector, he's letting his true colors show. Sickle and Hammer red.

Hey has Biden been allowed to speak in public by his handlers? Maybe he'll tell us who gets to be black again, that was a laugh riot. :)

Nobody has seen Trump in days. I don't think he's left the bunker. It's pretty scary out here and you know, him being a coward and all.

11:44 - don't think you want to get into all that because Biden has been out while Trump feels the need to teargas a path to do so. Otherwise, Trump's in the basement, you know, inspecting things.
