Tension between pro-police rally goers and Black Lives Matter protesters in Gilbert, Arizona, has evolved into fistfights, The Arizona Republic reports. Now, another rally is planned for this Thursday.

“Videos posted to social media and shared with The Arizona Republic show pro-police protesters waved flags and yelled about the threat of ‘antifa,’ referencing a loosely organized antifascist ideology that has no clear organization or membership but is often criticized by President Donald Trump,” AZCentral reports. “Several people were also caught on video threatening and punching counterprotesters gathered across the street with little police intervention. Some were heard making homophobic and racist remarks and Nazi salutes during and following the brawl.”

According to counter-protesters, police were favoring the pro-cop demonstrators, who they say largely instigated the violence.

“They’re propagating this antifa boogeyman,” said BLM protester Emily Hansen. “It’s terrifying.”

7. We need to re-vet every PD in the nation for supremacists and those prone to violence.

Those who make the cut need real training in how to de-escalate situations without resorting to force as the first option AND re-education to remind them who they serve—us!

6. Protest in downtown Phoenix called off after alleged threats of violence

 

PHOENIX — A Black Lives Matter rally in downtown Phoenix was canceled Wednesday night after alleged threats of violence against protesters.

ABC15 crews did see a small group of protesters who continued to march after the event was shut down.

Organizers say threats of physical and gun violence against victims, families and organizers of the march made it nearly impossible to guarantee the safety of those involved.

Members say in light of the shootings in Kenosha and heightened tensions locally, they encourage anyone who had planned to attend, to march in a local protest planned in coordination with the National March on Washington 2020 on August 28.

8. Yes they want a race war so mf45 can declare martial law and stop the election.

We need to ge that message out for BLM and it’s supporters to cool it on protesting and not play into their hands.

I would not be surprised if someone in this administration is instigating this with his followers. A good spy Inside or reporter should really expose this.

9. MSM needs to refer to "anti-fascist" movement instead of

Last edited Thu Aug 27, 2020, 07:05 PM - Edit history (1)

the ridiculous combined word they love to use. The word they use makes no sense, is not easier or quicker to say and does nothing but confuse.

I saw a meme: I am not against police unless they break the law. I am not agaonst the protestors, unless they break the law.

Here is my own meme: Police and terrorists have to stop shooting people of color. Terrorists infiltrating the peaceful protests need to be identified and arrested. People who are not participating in the protests need to do more than watch what the news is covering, because otherwise, they will miss the obvious meaning of BLM and antifa. This isn't a time for armchair quarterbacks.

12. Trump supporters have no idea what fascism is because they aren't very bright.

They just know that liberals are against it, so they’re for it. If Trump is a fascist, hooray! That’ll tick off the libs. The goal is not to preserve democracy for the future. The goal is to preserve white supremacy for the present, and it if takes another civil war to do that, all the better. Those millions of self-appointed militias have been training for such an event for decades, and they’re itching to get the killing started. They’re no longer willing to just let the police kill as many black people as possible. They want in on the action. As you can tell, I’m angry and disgusted!

16. If I didn't have a cat that would starve to death if something happened to me

And my work very much needing me, I would join in the fracas.

Yeah, Gilbert is on average VERY redneck conservative town, and very LDS.

18. All they have left is guns

Trump is losing, will lose and his supporters know it. Frustration + anger + guns. Vicious mix.

19. Too close to home...

Today I saw a Trumptard in a white pickup with 2 giant flags out the back. One American, the other a Trump 2020.

It was all I could do to catch up to him with a one finger salute....
