Sunday News Roundup: The Democrat-Sponsored Riots Will Continue Until You Take A Knee

What if they wrote a Tweet and nobody knew what it meant? – Well, you’d get a Tweet like this one from Breitbart this morning: “The Seattle Storm and New York Liberty, walked off the court during the playing of the national anthem prior to their game on Saturday.”

That was the first thing I saw when I got online this morning, and I have to admit to being baffled. What in the world is a Seattle Storm and a New York Liberty? Turns out that those are two teams in the WNBA, a league I honestly thought had folded years ago.

From the Breitbart piece:

The Seattle Storm and New York Liberty, walked off the court during the playing of the national anthem prior to their game on Saturday.

In addition, there was a 26-second moment of silence in honor of 26-year-old Breonna Taylor who was shot and killed by Louisville police.

Each player also wore Taylor’s name on the back of their jerseys.

“We are dedicating this season to Breonna Taylor, an outstanding EMT who was murdered over 130 days ago in her home,” Liberty player Layshia Clarendon announced before tip-off. “Breonna Taylor was dedicated and committed to uplifting everyone around here. We are also dedicating this season to ‘Say Her Name” campaign, a campaign committed to saying the names and fighting for justice of black women – black women are so often forgotten in this fight for justice, who don’t have people marching in the streets for them. We will say her name. Sandra Bland. Atatiana Jefferson. Dominique Remy Fells. Breonna Taylor. We will be a voice for the voiceless.”

So, a really good cause but a really dumb way to draw attention to it. The great news for the WNBA is that no one watches their games anyway, so walking off the court won’t cost them in the TV ratings.

The “peaceful protests” continued around the country on Saturday. – In Austin, Texas, a chubby, pasty-white 30-something doofus who was carrying an AK-47 was shot and killed when he reportedly aimed his rifle at a passing motorist. Turned out the motorist – who is cooperating with local police – was carrying, too. The BLM protester’s last words to a TV interviewer were “people who hate us” are “too big of p-ssies to actually do anything about it.” Guess not. Life comes at you fast, foks.

In Seattle, the “peaceful protesters” from the BLM/Antifa terrorist complex managed to burn a large warehouse building and injure 21 police officers. That finally prompted despicable Marxist Mayor Jenny Durkan to declare a riot.

From a report by KIRO Channel 7:

During a media briefing with Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best, she said Saturday’s protest was not a peaceful demonstration at all [Gee, you think?], and many people were put at risk. She described the path that rioters took.

What started with thousands of people gathering peacefully Saturday afternoon in Capitol Hill in solidarity with the ongoing Black Lives Matter protests in Portland changed later in the day.

The group met at Seattle Central College at East Pine Street and Broadway at around 1 p.m. before starting their march and loudly making their message heard to defund SPD.

Things shifted at about 4 p.m.

During the march, Seattle police said about a dozen people devolved into a rampage of destruction as they marched past the King County Youth Detention Center at 12th Avenue and Alder Street, targeting the site.

Some rioters carried sledgehammers and began shattering workers’ car windows in the parking lot.

At one point, a rioter grabbed a flagger’s stop sign and used it as a weapon.

So, just a bunch of peaceful kids having peaceful fun in peaceful Seattle, right, New York Times?

Meanwhile, the fun continued in Portland, Oregon for the 59th straight day. Here’s how terrific journalist Andy Ngo captured the peaceful action:

Oh, so much peace, so much fun, so much beautiful bonding, right, CNN?

But never fear! Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot has her priorities right where you’d expect them to be!

From a report at Breitbart:

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot deployed dozens of police officers on Thursday to form a human barricade around the block where she lives. This was the same day she ordered the removal of a Christopher Columbus statue in Grant Park in the overnight hours.

The local CBS affiliate reported on the scene in Chicago, where the Trump administration is sending federal police to help quell the ongoing violence, as shooting deaths occur on a daily basis:

About 1,000 protesters gathered in Logan Square Thursday night calling for racial justice and police reform. The protesters were gathered at Kimball and Wrightwood avenues, close to where Mayor Lori Lightfoot lives, as of 9:15 p.m.

The group included representatives of Black Lives Matter and Good Kids Mad City, and they are also calling for the defunding of police. 

The protest began at the actual Logan Square at Milwaukee and Kedzie avenues. It grew considerably as it moved through the neighborhood.

Honestly, every time you think Democrat politicians cannot possibly become more depraved, despicable and demented, they go and prove you wrong.

That is all.
