It was actually a week ago that Minneapolis Democrat Party Chair Devin Hogan saw his op-ed piece, “The cops started it,” published at Southside Pride. Someone at the NRCC managed to catch it and publicize it Tuesday, and it’s something. Hogan writes about the rioting in Minneapolis following the George Floyd video, and as the headline suggests, the cops started it.
Example of Democrats' defense of political violence by their partisans: Minneapolis Democrat Party Chair praises burning police precinct to the ground as "pure righteousness to open new worlds of understanding." https://t.co/ZsEjcNYo4v

The youth of Minneapolis have grown up seeing the police murder people who look like them without consequences. They are out of f**ks to give. Deliberately antagonizing them was a cruel excuse to give an opportunity to knock heads. Everything that followed was a proportional response.
Like it or not, setting the Third Precinct on fire was a genuine revolutionary moment. An act of pure righteousness to open new worlds of understanding. The people declared themselves ungovernable and unilaterally took their power back. The largest international human rights movement in modern history had begun. The youth of Minneapolis carried all of this. The cops started it.
“The largest international human rights movement in modern history had begun.”
Let's focus on the line in the article, "The people declared themselves ungovernable." Boy, is that an understatement.

It seems that people never destroy their own possessions and property to open new worlds of understanding.

Exactly. A complete moral and reality inversion has taken place in what was the greatest country to ever exist.

Of course comrades will praise revolt, no surprise.

He probably has some high praise for carjackers as well.

I get a clearer understanding every time I watch the radical left purposely destroy property.

What the hell has happened to Minneapolis that they have lunatics like that in position of power?

The cops started it by killing Floyd, and burning down Minneapolis was just a proportional response. And this is the city’s chair of the Democratic Party.
NPR does a fact-check on Mike Pence saying there was ‘rioting and looting’ in Minneapolis (Hint: ‘Taxpayer-funded gaslighting’) https://t.co/sXNLCj7LNO
