It has now morphed into an insurrectionist movement, just like the confederates.The BLM movement are the anarchists. They not separate from the movement. It is an inherently racist movement, and you are supporting racism if you support it.
Methinks the majority of Americans disagree with your views there Danukoz.Were the soccer mums destroying federal property Andy?

I know Trump is getting desperate to create a different narrative as a distraction from his incompetent handling of Covid 19 but trying to use the military against his own people is probably not going down to well with most Americans and will be a massive over reach and you will probably find resistance in both Congress and in the Military itself.It has now morphed into an insurrectionist movement, just like the confederates.
As it grows it is going to threaten the fundamental stability of the USA. Military action may need to be taken.
I would agree with your first statement, if so many peaceful BLM protesters didn’t support the violence.The small number of anarchists in Portland are a hindrance to the BLM movement and their mayhem plays into the hand of the likes of Trump and Danukoz who will use them for their political ends to discredit all the legitimate protesting. The trouble for Trump and his fanatics was the over reach of sending in the Feds who being heroes went up against veterans and soccer mums.
I know a lot of protesters who went to the Melbourne BLM protest (which was completely peaceful.)What about the peaceful protestors in Atlanta? Or Brisbane? Or Sydney?
One track mind again I see.
Social media tends to bring out the worse in some individuals but I believe the American general public who came out in support of the movement don't share those more extreme views yet want change.I would agree with your first statement, if so many peaceful BLM protesters didn’t support the violence.
It’s very hard to separate the peaceful and violent arms of the movement, when there is a distinct absence of genuine criticism of the violent acts from the peaceful side.
A scroll through social media shows how broad the support is for the violent acts amongst BLM supporters, and the apparent inability within the movement to accept any level of police intervention as appropriate.
Ahh yes you are, you’ve continually tried to downplay the issue, like it’s just a few people here and there who are doing it, and “look the Australian protests didn’t have violence” which demonstrates it’s a great noble movement (it did have some btw). And it’s not. It’s a facist, racist, anti American and anti democratic movement. Meanwhile Andy lives in an alternate reality where it’s not really happening at all and characterises it as some mums who are standing up to the Nasty Feds, and is somehow all Trumps fault.Noone is willfully ignoring illegal behaviour being undertaken by the rioters. However you are willfully ignoring the opposite.
Andy Ngo is only highlighting the elements that are well known, and also ignoring the other side.
I don't know what you expect to be honest.
The divided polarization in America is frightening.America is looking more dystopian and divided more every day and it is unfortunate its leadership fans division, accepts police brutality and race baiting in order to try and stay in power, add a gun loving culture and entrenched inequality it is a recipe for disaster.
