Trump admin blames far-left extremists in hijacking protests, stoking violence

AG William Barr blamed the violent protests following the killing of George Floyd on ’anarchic and far-left extremist groups’. Barr said the violence appeared ’planned, organized’ by ’many of whom travel from outside the state’. President Trump in a tweet Saturday laid the blame on the ’ANTIFA and the Radical Left’.

I wonder if Chinese intelligence throws a little money into funding groups like antifa and the kkk in order to foment strife?

The left is and was always violent. The therm left and right came from the french revolution. Who rioted then? Why do the commies (left) want revolution?

I think extremists from both the left and right are involved here. Whoever they are these rioters do not have the best interest of the USA or the American people.

Although I agree, I also think extremists from both factions are a part of this. Too many coincidences. As well as agitators only wanting to spark the destruction and violence were seeing.

Maybe he should start with blaming a corrupt and racist terrorist police state first.

Pretty sure those are not "protests". It's people sick of not working, sick of being stuck at home, sick of stagnation. They do not know George Floyd. His death is just a useful excuse. If these were actual protesters then wouldn't they be targetting the government buildings instead of private property?

Violent protestors were heard chanting “Bringing the boogaloo” in front of CNN in Atlanta. Sounds like Q anon and 4chan stuff, not Antifa.

Politicians need to quit politicizing the issue of race and actually do something about it but that's all on us for electing officials that argue instead of working together for a solution

The perfect analogy of modern America is black folk protecting black businesses from being burned down by white kids protesting on behalf of Black Lives Matter.

I am skeptical that a majority of the rioting can be laid at the feet of groups like Antifa, BLM, etc. That being said, it is fairly clear that members of these groups have ignited and exacerbated many of these destructive incidents, even if I do not think they make up more than a quarter of the participants.

Watch this video from inside Target the first day. Black looters, but white Antifa destroying shelves with sledge hammers. https://youtu.be/TIjKZskJFaw Video White antifa dude breaking AutoZone windows before starting fire. Black kid trying to stop him. https://youtu.be/-evjkVfJ7HY Is it ok for white people to go into a black neighborhood, and spend hours of hard labor to destroy buildings and infrastructure. The Democrats are back to destroying black communities like in the 1920's https://www.nytimes.com/2018/10/04/us/mass-graves-tulsa-race-massacre.html Mount Zion Baptist Church was one of hundreds of buildings attacked in Tulsa during a spate of violence in 1921

I want to see Trump’s innovative solution to the problem. Blaming on the left was too easy and could fail to be any solution. Let’s see what else is new.

It's more far right extremists that are causing the violence. These are the groups Trump supports and makes comments like "there are good people on both sides." Trump is probably thrilled to see these riots and protests knowing how much Covid-19 affects the Black community. He's probably figuring a good many of them will catch the virus and die, thereby reducing that population. Being a racist, nothing more would please him.

If course he does. Guaranteed sone of those violent protests were a DIRECT result of his presidency. He incites violence. He’s a very dangerous lunatic and everyone keeps letting him do whatever he wants. Theses politicians don’t care about us. They care about how big their bank accounts are. We’re their money making pawns. Wake up America!!! The government is in this together against us. Have been since it’s inception. We pay people that lie constantly to us. They’re the scum of the earth. We must stand up because nothing changes if nothing changes.

Trump might want to blame a history of oppression, inequality, and violence toward black people. That is the root cause for the riots, not extremists on either side. This is the straw that broke the camel’s back. Find a way to eliminate the root cause, stop treating symptoms.

As usual, Trump and all his so called Loyalists, are just full of crap! Trump's comments alone should express outrage over the murdering actions. Instead, he uses his staff to back his cowardly, narcissistic butt! Shame on them all!
