GOP continues to 'false-flag' Antifa as Trump still claims anarchists have taken over Seattle

3 min read

If they had taken over the city, Boeing and Amazon would have already been nationalized/syndicalized, so Trump is spewing more disinformation.

“There’s an obvious lesson here: reporters should be more careful before they blurt out uncorroborated nonsense on Twitter,” said Ingersoll. “Much of our media seem to be infected with that lack of caution. It’s not helping the country.”

NPR reported Tuesday that the Department of Justice has brought criminal charges against more than 50 individuals in connection with civil disorder following the police killing of George Floyd. None of those facing charges is accused of having any ties to the antifa movement.

[…]

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) has filed a lawsuit against the City of Seattle, claiming its mayor and police chief violated the First Amendment rights of its protesters by deploying “less lethal weapons to control and suppress demonstrations.”

[…]

Last week, the official White House Twitter account tweeted a video that showed random piles of bricks in several U.S. cities along protest routes. “Antifa and professional anarchists are invading our communities, staging bricks and weapons to instigate violence,” the tweet read. As Gizmodo reported, each pile of bricks, except for one, were placed there by construction crews, in most cases days or weeks before Floyd’s death. One of the images was of a security barrier erected in front of a Jewish community center intended to deter vehicle attacks.

The White House deleted the video approximately two hours later. The Trump administration has not responded to a request for comment.
