A desperate Press Release from “Climate Power 2020”

From the “climate change is ubiquitous and omnipotent” department comes this desperate attempt to capitalize on a social crisis. I think the most likely reason this PR exists is that people aren’t paying much attention to climate change, so they are trying to be “relevant” in today’s brick-throwing activist street narrative. See our previous story on the topic.

Climate activists have been trying to link racial inequality, poverty, famines, wars, refugees, and just about anything socially problematic to “climate change” for years in an attempt to make it more “relevant”. Only the low-information types actually swallow that kool-aid.

For Immediate Release: June 2, 2020
Contact: Subhan Cheema   Climate Power 2020 Statement on Racial Justice   Washington, D.C. – Today, Climate Power 2020 issued the following statement: 

“We stand in solidarity with those demanding justice for George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and the untold number of Black individuals murdered because of systemic racism and white supremacy in this country.

“From police brutality to discriminatory housing laws, from a corrupt legal system to contaminated drinking water and polluted air, our country has been built upon racist systems that we must all work together to break down. 

“Climate justice is racial justice, and all those dedicated to fighting for a just America must stand together in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement.

“This year is the defining moment for our nation. We must do the work to empower our leaders to intentionally take the actions necessary to dismantle these racist structures and build a just and equitable future. We must also hold individuals, like Donald Trump, who further injustice and incite violence accountable.

“If able, we encourage you to support the organizations on-the-ground fighting racial injustice: Black Visions Collective, The Liberty Fund, The Freedom Fund, the Bail Project, and other organizations dedicated to creating systemic change.”  

Climate Power 2020 is putting the Trump administration on defense every single day for ignoring experts, refusing to believe in science, surrendering our government to big oil executives, and gutting public health protections, all at the expense of future generations. The 2020 presidential election is the defining moment for how our nation addresses the climate crisis—our leaders must be emboldened to take immediate action on climate change and to build a just and equitable economy. The time to act is now. Learn more: climatepower2020.org

  1. Yes heres the justification/ password in, “Climate justice is racial justice, and all those dedicated to fighting for a just America must stand together in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement.”

    So climate justice is out on a recruitment drive we surport are black bros at the same time indoctrinate them into the climate scam. Nice

  2. Climate Power 2020 is putting the Trump administration on defense every single day by ignoring experts, refusing to believe in science, surrendering to big money politics, and gutting the laws of physics, all at the expense of the truth.

    • your sentence seems to claim climate power is ignoring experts… is that your intention??

      • It’s the undeniable truth. They only listen to the ‘experts’ who say what they want to hear. If you’re going to listen to experts who hold a controversial position, you need to understand both sides and this insane group of useful idiots doesn’t even understand their own side of the science.

        • They also define an expert as anyone who says what they want to hear.
          That’s how political science and English majors qualify as “experts”.

    • That’s probably how they got infected in the first place…

  3. Let’s just hope that mainstreet America figures out what is going on the last few years, and returns DJT and the Republicans to the House and Senate with a full majority so as most of the agenda that President Trump promised in 2016 can be completed by 2022/24. Including another few appointments to the Supreme Court to cement these ideals into practise for the foreseeable future. This is the only hope to secure the future we have known the last 75 years, otherwise it is an unknown journey into some version of Socialism.

    At least no one can truthfully say that President Trump isn’t trying to fulfill his election promises he did make, including campaigning on a law and order agenda. It is time to not only restore law and order, but to bring to justice to all the domestic and international bad actors who are fostering this mayhem on the USA. To blame this on POTUS, who had planted the seeds of the greatest economy the world has seen just 3 months ago is a straight up lie. The depths of depravity that the Democrats are going to in this election year is stunning. Plan to get out and vote in 5 months, as these idiot protesters probably won’t bother to vote. It’s time to clean house, and put these dangerous anarchists in jail, on No Fly lists, and charge them with domestic terrorism.

    • Trump has not a chance of reelection . Wall street alone has given $29m to Biden,Trump has garnered just $6m.
      https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2020/06/02/joe-bidens-campaign-is-awash-in-wall-street-cash/
      Biden outpolls Trump already even before that cash is spent on ads.
      Then there will be all the cash from Hollywood, the media and internet giants and of course the likes of Soros.
      I had originally thought that the oft – stated senility of Biden would rule him out after the primaries and at the Convention, but either no one cares about the mental capacity of the leader of the free world, or the senility is just an act.
      The world will be even more unpleasant than it is now in 12 months time.

      • That’s what I thought in 2016, and lost a lot of money betting friends that he had no chance of winning the nomination. And then I lost even more money betting that he couldn’t win the election. Because I didn’t fully realize how fed up people were with the hollowing out of America and sending millions of jobs to China, amongst other grievances the people have and I suspect it is even more in Trump’s favor from a silent majority. Especially after this week. Remember 2016? He only raised half as much as HRC, while spending his own cash..

        From Bloomberg Press in 2016…

        https://www.bloomberg.com/politics/graphics/2016-presidential-campaign-fundraising/

        “He didn’t win the money race, but Donald Trump will be the next president of the U.S. In the primaries and general election, he defied conventional wisdom, besting better financed candidates by dominating the air waves for free. Trump also put to use his own cash, as well as the assets and infrastructure of his businesses, in unprecedented fashion. He donated $66 million of his own money, flew across the country in his private jet, and used his resorts to stage campaign events. At the same time, the billionaire was able to draw about $280 million from small donors giving $200 or less. Super-PACs, which can take contributions unlimited in size, were similarly skewed toward his opponent, Hillary Clinton. Ultimately, Trump won the presidency despite having raised less than any major party presidential nominee since John McCain in 2008, the last to accept federal funds to pay for his general election contest.”

      • Mike: Trump will not only win in a landslide, but until the Democrats get a complete makeover, successful presidents after Trump wil be those on the right who adopt the Republican makeover created by Trump.

        Democrats may have to wait a generation to get back in power. They need new blood that sees that they have drifted away from America and into EU/UN moldy marksbrothers politics voted in locally but committed to a global constituency.

        • Gary,
          Trump is unlikely to win in a landslide. Just as he is unlikely to lose in one either. The US is
          extremely polarised and so any Republican or Democrat running for president is likely to get about 48% of the vote. The winning margin in the electoral college might be quite different but
          that is only because the electoral college does not reflect the country as a whole.

          It is also worth noting that since 1988 Republicans have won the popular vote for the presidency only once. Which suggests that the country is far more left leaning that you imagine.

          • The electoral college does reflect the country as a whole. It’s the big Democratic run cities that don’t. This is why the electoral collage exists and why each state has 2 senators, independent of its population.

            The country is no where as far left as the MSM, or the current incarnation of the Democratic party. Unfortunately, many of those who vote for Democrats are oblivious to the positions their candidate have adopted as their party has embraced the lunatic left. All they hear, if anything, is ‘free stuff’, much like the looters.

          • Izaak, I understand what you mean, and had the left had a real retrospective on what went wrong with the last election and got some new blood in to put them back on the rails instead of doubling down and trying to overturn the election, they could have handily won the upcoming 2020.

            The Dems entirely burned up 4 yrs on a wasted exercise to de-elect a president and now the previous administration is going to get its skeletons dragged out of the closet re HRC, Comey and other FBI, Clapper, etc. wrongdoers that would have been left alone.

            Izaak, look, you are a smart guy. How is what the Democrats have put together for the 2020 contest better than what they had last time?

            As it is, putting forward the gaggling field of candidates they did and ending up with a bland worn out policy free guy with early stage alzheimer’s and roaming fingers seems like they planned to lose.

            Plus, under Trump, Blacks and Hispanics had the lowest unemployment percentage ever. The economy completely responded to Trump and grew like beanstock. He renegotiated trade deals that brought millions back to work plus stood up to China which isnt up to any good for America and the world. The economy is going to jump back up from Covid and the world is going to blane China for what theyve been through healthwise and economics wise.

            This is what I was trying to say more briefly. Ask yourself and your friends what they really think.

          • You are misinterpreting the Democratic “popular” vote and mistaking that for the majority vote of the Republic.
            Read your Constitution, the USA is a Republic, not a Democracy.

          • Gary,
            It is extremely depressing that after 4 years the democrats have not found someone better than Joe Biden. But they are still ahead in the polls and indeed remember that Clinton got 2 million more votes than Trump. Trump is more unpopular in 2020 than he was in 2016 when he was a relative unknown while Biden is a lot more popular than Clinton. So again while Trump might be the favourite to win it is likely to be quite close. And on average Trump has done significant to the economy — it has grown at almost exactly the same rate under Trump as it did under Obama.

          • Anyone who thinks that the “popular vote” actually reflects the mood of the country knows nothing about how elections work.
            First off, no candidate spends time in a state that leans heavily towards or away from the candidate.
            Secondly, voting behavior varies depending on your state. My state was polling for Trump by over 10 points, so I felt safe in wasting my vote by supporting the Libertarian party. Had it been a popular vote election, or had I lived in a toss up state, I would have voted for Trump.

            Like most socialists, Izaak knows nothing about how the real world works.

          • Biden is unable to attract more than a few dozen people to any of his rallies; worse Biden is completely unable to speak to people without a teleprompter and staged softball questions.

            President Trump attracts many tens of thousands to rallies. People who are smart enough to keep their traps shut when talking to idiots, fanatics, pollsters and press.

            Without vote harvesting fraud, long dead people voting, and nonexistent voters voting repeatedly, democrats can’t win these elections.

            As of April 30th, ‘President Trump has raised $125,246,918’. Funds raised across the range of Americans from poor through rich.

            President Trump was ranked third at raising funds for re-election, and that includes Bloomberg and Steyer as first and second thanks to their rich pals.

            Wall Street does not donate to elections unless they expect to get Quid Pro Quo in return. Given that Wall Street is gung ho globalist and President Trump is returning jobs and industries to America, one can expect Wall Street to donate to anybody but President trump; even Biden.

            Biden’s Burisma and Ukraine corruption will seriously harm his 2020 chances. Only advanced dementia allows Biden to continue.

            Making that $6 million claim completely fallacious. Which isn’t a surprise given the anti-Trump commenter sources.

      • I don’t think it is an act, there is another woman in the wings that I hear is being groomed for the VP role. I believe the intention is to get Joe “Uncle creepy” Biden elected and prep her to take over so the Dems get their “Female” president. IF note I used a big IF, Joe get’s in a year or two into his term, he will be pushed or just use the old “health” reasons to step aside and let the woman take over.

        • My betting pool is on whether Kamala Harris (or whoever) invokes the 25th Amendment on January 21, 2021 or January 21, 2023. The first gets her into power sooner, the second gives her a shot at 10 years. If course, that’s on the assumption Biden wins. He’s actively trying to lose the midwest with his promises to ban fracking and put Beto O’Rourke in charge of confiscating everyone’s favorite guns. No matter how many fraudulent votes the Media Party machine manufactures in LA, San Francisco, and NYC, those two states will still only be worth 84 electoral votes.

      • The anti-Biden commercials haven’t even started yet.
        There’s so much material on Biden, they could come out with a new commercial everyday from now til the election, and still have material left over.

    • Vote in person. The mail-in votes will be contested until Hell freezes over – remember the Chad Storm…

  4. “Climate justice is racial justice, and all those dedicated to fighting for a just America must stand together in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement.”

    Low-information types? The internet has made the information available to what is happening and how the manipulation is occurring. So it’s more like a dependency on low-IQ types to enable the convolution of climate change with the BLM movement. The common denominator is a Leftist ideology of control and power seeking, using emotional feelings of insecurity and fear to convince sheep to give up their freedoms in order to be fleeced or worse.

  5. Seen in duckduckgo:

    Climate Power 2020 is an independently run project created by the Center for American Progress Action Fund, the League of Conservation Voters, and the Sierra Club.

    So the usual suspects in the New Reich

    • CAP’s big donor for the last 17 years has been George Soro’s Open Society Foundation.
      https://www.activistfacts.com/organizations/528-center-for-american-progress/

      The Sierra Club for the last 15 years has received significant levels (millions) from the Tides Foundation and from the Rockefeller’s Bros Trust.

      The League of Conservation Voters is essentially an off-shoot of The Sierra Club, founded by former leadership from that organization. Its efforts are much more politically focused on defeating politician who don’t buy into their climate and environmental agenda nonsense. As such LoCV has kept its funding sources much harder to find, on purpose. One thing that jumps out immediately when you go to look at these groups is you can see their Boards of Directors all are common. The PResident of one, sits on the board of another, and so forth. Executives cross-pollinating both the human resources and cultivating the fiancial resources that are contributed, with everyone involved making fat 6 and 7 figure annual salaries while the electric rate paying customers and tax payers get fleeced to fund all the renewable energy scams.

      You can bet they all have the same common sets of funders, and also investment firms and hedge funds that invest in the wind and solar renewable energy scams. Much of this is also coordinated by Ceres.com as a clearing house to connect “green tech” investors with organizations that will lobby to help get politicians elected who will continue renewable mandates, tax code incentives as crony capitalism.

      The big picture that emerges from doing an investigation is the realization that Climate Change was never about climate. It was always the Climate Scam – a hustle of the entire economies of Western nations to screw the vast middle class and its affluence, and to then funnel that vast skimming into the pockets of the wealthy elites, their investment funds, as well as buying the politicians and deeply underfunded public union employee retirement funds into going along with the artifices they created in the name of climate and environment..

  6. It’s ironic that protests such as those in Los Angeles (and Minneapolis) are being held in cities and counties long run by Democrats, all within a State (s) controlled for decades by Democrats.

    • It is ironic that Black people vote for the Democrats…

      Inciting anger in the country for political purposes, would in some countries, result in a party losing its status. Anarachy is dangerous and it is not helpful when recovering from a pandemic.

      Riots and Green Scams destroy businesses, and businesses create jobs, and Black voters need jobs, and better paying jobs.

      Black lives matter. Black people are just like White people, we all want better paying jobs and businesses to help pay tax for services, to keep our tax bill low.

      The Democrats have zero solutions, if they must balance a budget. The Democrats are making promises for stuff that are Impossible to pay for. What will happen if they win and Biden has a health problem?

      • The common denominator that hasn’t changed in 190 years of the US Democratic Party is that is the Party of Oppression. It is a party of tribal politics, dividing people into groups and used to divide and conquer. And in that regards destruction of individual liberties and freedoms has been and always will their primary weapon.
        Like Foot Locker shoe store being looted in Manhattan today. It has something, a symbol of capitalist freemarket entrepreneurship, where those $200 Nike sneakers wouldn’t be found in Venezuela, the US Democrats effectively have told the rioters they deserve it, and they go loot it.

        So tomorrow both the store will be gone along with the jobs for the employees, and the shoes will have to come from Amazon or some other far off retailer. But then like AO-C running off though the Amazon HQ2 good jobs from her Brooklyn district, the Democrats only want what they can control and thus will feed money to them. And all those NY’s better just flee that Blue State because the Dems have rigged the voting schemes now to ensure their power remains.

      • “What will happen if they win and Biden has a health problem?”

        This is expected and the plan is that the even further left Socialist he picks for a VP will take over.

    • Even though they live in places that have been completely controlled by Democrats for decades, if not generations, they still manage to blame everything bad that has ever happened to them on conservatives.l

    • Invoking the ‘science’ is the meaningless imprimatur of the left to justify all their destructive policies. I think it started with Gore who says it all the time. Now all the Demo polits use it all the time and label their critics anti-science.

      Even the non degreed folk are seeing it for what it is. ‘Deplorables’ know more about what’s best for them than the legions of iseful idjits on the “pro-aggressives” side who have hell planned for them by the elites, once they are no longer useful.

  7. So, if you say, or write “science” that makes you morally superior. I’m agog at the stupidity out there. Truly running out of words. I see the left is now blaming the violence on Russians.

    The CO2 scam is incredibly flimsy and is outright admitted as a scam by people who started the whole thing. But if you pour enough money on a fire of stupidity it’s still hard to stamp out.

  8. What the Left calls science is actually just scratching the surface and is deceptively wrong. A more complete understanding of how the atmosphere works to determine temperature at the surface explains why CO2, in spite of being a ghg, does not now, never has and never will have a significant effect on climate. In simple terms, water vapor has been increasing faster than possible from feedback (temperature increase of the surface water) and has been 10 times more effective at increasing ground level temperature than has CO2 increase.

  9. Stupid sign says it all
    “We believe Science,Orangeman bad.”
    Duh,better if they practised science,using that strange thingy,the scientific method.
    Believe whatever they want,I await some evidence ,maybe even a falsifiable hypothesis,that deals with the known facts at hand..
    “We believes in “The Science”,along with six other impossible things before breakfast.
    The wonderful aspect of our times,the inclusion of the term Science ,into subjects where there is no evidence of any science being used.
    Political Science.
    Life Science.
    Social Science.
    Climate Science
    Gender Science?
    All “fields” where the scientific method is most unwelcome or inapplicable.

  10. I never knew “post hoc ergo propter hoc” was science. You learn something every day.

  11. What they fail to tell people is that the recent deaths of black people at the hands of police, the racial inequality has happened in some of our most progressive cities. The most recent, Minneapolis, Minnesota is governed(?) by an extremely progressive mayor and a very diverse city Council most of whom are Democrats. We find the same in New York City, Ferguson Missouri, and Baltimore, Maryland. There is a call for a systemic change but perhaps we should start by insisting the Mayor, the Police Chief of Minneapolis along with the City Council resigned immediately and let’s get somebody in there with some leadership abilities.

    • Police kill more whites than they do blacks. However since whites won’t riot over this, you never hear about it.

    • Teewee,

      I totally agree. It is surreal that the media is trying to blame Trump, for an outrageous police action, in a Democratic run city and state.

      Trump stated based on what he heard in the video, that this appeared to be an outrageous policy action. The action to correct the damage caused by the outrageous police action should have been local.

      The ‘riots’ are Obama’s legacy. Planned nightly ‘Riots’ are protests weaponized. Fascism light.

      • Police are controlled at the city level.
        The idea that Trump is to blame for anything city police are doing is something that is so stupid that only a socialist could come up with it.

  12. If they believe there exists intolerant, “systemic racism and white supremacy in this country,” then why does every minority ethnic, racial, and religious group desperately want to immigrate here? I am not suggesting things are perfect, but clearly we are ahead of the rest of the world in providing equal opportunity for all.

    The protests are totally unnecessary. No one supports the murder of innocent people of any race, and everyone wants those responsible brought to justice. The question that needs to be asked, answered, and addressed is, why do police of every ethnicity treat inner-city minority males more harshly than they treat others?

    • “The question that needs to be asked, answered, and addressed is, why do police of every ethnicity treat inner-city minority males more harshly than they treat others?”

      Yes, the elephant in the room. Inner-city minority males are more likely to have engaged in crimes, more likely to be carrying weapons and more likely to have been apprehended after an adrenaline fueled chase. It’s profiling, not prejudice and while the left doesn’t like to admit it, profiling works, as evidenced by the many adrenaline fueled chases that often end up with excess police brutality.

  13. This is pure BS. The number of Blacks murdered by Whites in this country is but a tiny tiny perentage of those Blacks murdered by other Blacks. Blacks only thing to fear is other Blacks. Blacks Lives Matter doesn’t give a damn about Black lives snuffed out by other Blacks – they are racist in trying to convince the public that Blacks have anything to fear from hites. When they mention the Ku Klux Klan as a danger, I laugh uproarously – the Ku Klux Klan hasn’t been a danger to any Blacks for the past 50 years. Any Black who buys into the lies of the rioters is certifying hemself/herself as an ignorant jerk.

      • Indeed you did. 🙂 My fault for clicking “post” before I finished reading your comments.

        It’s interesting how these cleverly-named groups keep poping-up from the same keepers of the Green Blob.

  14. The UK opposition party the labour party a left wing party have called on the USA to not attack lawful protest, at the same time calling for a ban of riot protection equipment to the USA.

    It’s not really a lawful protest anymore with rioting arson and attacking police officers I would of thought any thing to help protect the police would be rushed along rather than calling for a ban, still if the police cant cope then what other option have you =military.

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-52900204

    The global left supporting each other yet again.

  15. When something bad happens to a liberal, it’s always somebody else’s fault.
    It’s never the result of poor life style choices made by the liberal.
    It’s always racism, classism, sexism, rich people stealing, whatever.
    It must be nice being able to go through life with a built in excuse for every mistake you’ve ever made.

    • In a recent interview, Sanders refused to condemn the looters. Instead he tried to justify their looting by claiming that the rich had been looting the country for 40 years.
      In the mind of a socialist, any tax rate less than 100% is the same as stealing from the government.

  16. The beauty of “intersectionality”: All aspects of the Progressive agenda are tied to each other. So to deny the climate change agenda equates racial inequality, and vice-versa.

  17. From the article: ““We stand in solidarity with those demanding justice for George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and the untold number of Black individuals murdered because of systemic racism and white supremacy in this country.”

    This is the poison that the Left pushes on the nation.

    There is no evidence of systemic racism. For every unjustified killing of a black person, there are many more such killings of white people. Some by Black cops, but we don’t charge them with racism. It doesn’t even rate a headline.

    Just like other propagada, if you repeat “systemic racism” long enough and loud enough, some people will buy into it.

    There is no denying there are racists among us, and they can be found among all racial groups. But there is no evidence that “the system” is driving any racism. These are lone-wolf psychos. They are not involved in a conspiracy to hold Black people back, or worse. There is no such conspiracy. That’s a Big Lie.

    • Most of the “unjustified” killings aren’t as “unjustified” as the protesters make them out to be.

      • That’s true, and whether they are justified or unjustified is for the courts to decide, not a mob. Although George Floyd’s case looks cut and dried.

        Each circumstance is different and a judge and jury are the ones to decide. Justice is served when the jury decides. They don’t always get it right, but most of the time they do, and there are appeals that can be filed about any jury decision.

        Our laws will work if given a half a chance.

        It is reported that all four police officers involved in the killing of George Floyd are now criminally charged.

  18. A brief but complete summary of the whole of the climate power 2020 website.

    “Donald Trump bad.
    Climate science good.”

    … in so many breathless buzzwords and phrases.

  19. Here is a current banner headline on the Fox News Channel:

    “Riots Blanket Streets of American Cities”

    Now, at the present time no riots are taking place, although there are a lot of demonstrators out and about, but no riots yet.

    Yet, here we have Fox News Channel of all things, spreading fear and panic and completely distorting the current situation.

    And they have had similar headlines running all day long, and are showing scenes from yesterday and talking about them as though they are happening now.

    I don’t know what they are thinking but they are spreading misinformation which might encourage some to take part in riots who otherwise might not if they didn’t see a false headline saying it was blanketing American cities.

    Fox News is disappointing me. Why would they blow the situation out of proprtion like this?

    We need to keep our heads, when all those around us are losing theirs, even if it’s on the Fox News Channel.

    • Quoting myself: “Now, at the present time no riots are taking place, although there are a lot of demonstrators out and about, but no riots yet.

      Yet, here we have Fox News Channel of all things, spreading fear and panic and completely distorting the current situation.”

      It looks like the riots *have* calmed down considerably. I’ve been watching Fox News for the last two hours and they have not reported on any violent incidents that took place last night, so I assume there was not much to report on. Instead, Fox News keeps talking about what happened yesterday, as if it is still happening today.

      It’s almost like they want to keep the bad news in people’s heads and ignore the more recent good news.

      We have to hold the right wing accountable for their actions just like we do the left wing. If they distort the truth, then we have to call them on it.

      • I don’t think it’s such a terrible misstep to say “Riots blanket American cities,” since that’s exactly what’s been happening for days. Sort of pushes everything else off the front page, y’know?

    • Why do you assume that the headline is referring to present.
      It makes much more sense to assume that the headline is past tense.

      Your eagerness to find fault with Fox has caused you to make a fool of yourself.

      • “Riots Blanket Streets of American Cities”

        Why wouldn’t I assume that refers to the present? I don’t read the above as past tense.

        In your opinion, it makes more sense to see it as past tense. You are welcome to your opinion.

        I’m not eager to find fault with Fox News Channel, I’m complaining about their leftwing tilt.

        They are pushing the leftwing narrative on their banner headlines and their text that scrolls across the bottom of the screen. I assume since they acquired new leftwing upper management that this leftwing way of looking at the world is seeping into the Fox News Channel, and I don’t like it.

        We have enough leftwing lies on tv as it is.

        • Ave a read of this Tom see what you can see, taken from a mixed article on the BBC

          Far-right activists charged with inciting violence

          Three alleged far-right activists in Las Vegas have been charged with trying to exploit peaceful protests and incite violence, according to prosecutors.

          According to the local prosecutor’s office, the three men are alleged members of the “Boogaloo” movement, which prosecutors describe as “a term used by extremists to signify a coming civil war and/or collapse of society”.

          “Violent instigators have hijacked peaceful protests and demonstrations across the country, including Nevada, exploiting the real and legitimate outrage over Mr Floyd’s death for their own radical agendas,” US Attorney Nicholas Trutanich said in a statement.

          “Law enforcement is focused on keeping violence and destruction from interfering with free public expression and threatening lives.”

          The three men were apprehended late last month after attempting to use a molotov cocktail, officials say.

          • I’m not sure what point you are making, B d, but if they find righwing extremists involved they should arrest them and prosecute them, just like they should arrest and prosecute anyone else who is disrupting society.

            Btw, rightwing extremists are very small in numbers and are not embraced by conservatives. Conservatives would codemn them just as fast as they would condemn leftwing radicals.

            I’m doing that now.

          • My point Tom is the article is loaded

            It opens claiming 3 right wing antagonists fueling the fire of riots in one place, ok that’s fine if it’s TRUE

            Then the article refers to further wide spread riots across some cities in the USA without attributing any faction.

            Then the article at the end refers to the right wingers again.

            Its auto suggesting all the riots are caused by right wingers, its loaded to make people think in a particular way.

            We already know the BBC is a left wing rag, and is forever attacking the American administration.

  20. A week’s a long time in politics. In Oz it was the drought then bushfires then Covid then lockdown now opening up while National Reconciliation Weeksters tried to piggyback off US BLM but not police lives matter-

    The MSM dramas and hysterics come and go but come election time we all look up briefly and get a feel for who to anoint among the choices at the time and then mark the ballot. Yep lots of things matter but what are the incumbents and hopefuls really gunna do about them all and where’s the money coming from? Don’t get too far out there with the vision splendid and the big promises or we’ll sense the BS and overreach with our hard earned. Politics is the art of the practical and a long hard slog and not many problems get sorted before evening news time much to the chagrin of all the expert pundits paraded before us. The impotent are always so pure.

  21. “…all those dedicated to fighting for a totalitarian America must stand together in solidarity with the Marxist-Leninist movement.”

    There, fixed it for ya.

  22. How on earth can anyone use the phrase “believe in science” and not get laughed off the planet?

    Look very few can actually follow the science in detail but that does NOT mean we just blindly believe one side or another. Belief is for religion NOT science. We also are not allowed to go with what “the majority of scientists say”. Consensus is for politics NOT science. So what do we go with? Predictions, predictions and more predictions. That is the scientific method in a nutshell.

    Everyone can follow predictions. Copy, paste, save and check back later to see if it happened. Always get dates and values attached to the predictions. 2020 to 2040; Hotter? Colder? By how much?

    • Currently in France: pro-Macron, pro-EU, anti-Raoult types mock any person who believes HCQ might help with Covid, for allegedly using “polls” (of medical doctors) to come to that conclusion.

      The same people who for years have been using polls of “climate scientists” to “prove” the climate science was “the consensus”, and also accomplished, mature, stable…

  23. “We believe in science, Donlad Trump does not”

    Perhaps you can enlighten us as to how you know what Trump believes? Are you psychic? Do you use a Ouija board.

    Do you even know how science works?
