Earlier today Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz spoke on the situation in Minneapolis. In addition, the state’s Attorney General Keith Ellison, a former member of Congress, addressed citizens of the state and tried to give the rioters and others a reminder:
AG Keith Ellison, noting National Guard was doing COVID tests over weekend: “Don’t react to them the way you might react to Minneapolis Police.”

Attorney General Keith Ellison said the National Guard was, one week ago, administering COVID-19 tests to people. They are not the same as the Minneapolis police, he emphasizes for people protesting.

Ellison basically telling rioters to concentrate their violence towards the police, but leave the National Guard alone, because they helped administer corona tests.

Keith Ellison decided to support riots.
This is the same guy who posed with the book "Antifa: The Anti-Fascist Handbook" which promotes violent protest. pic.twitter.com/fEpPjLDi9O

I wonder if liberal Minnesotans are learning anything about the kind of wonderful, wise people they have chosen as their leaders

Perhaps Ellison isn’t fully interested in bringing an end to the chaos after all…
When the attorney general and chief law enforcement officer of Minnesota, is @keithellison, an exteremly left wing radical who has supported and promoted #Antifa and #BlackLivesMatter, it may be time for the federal government to take over to stop the violence. @realDonaldTrump pic.twitter.com/oujbu9voQy

In case you forgot, Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison loves ANTIFA… he lives for these types of riots. pic.twitter.com/QtteWS3Ddz
