Protests are only dangerous if the right-wing Americans hold them according to the media, although the right didn’t damage a thing and merely wanted to go back to work. Just ask Don Lemon, he said the right-wing protests were dangerous, but he has no problem with the Democrat riots, which he still refers to as protests.
Don Lemon fanned the flames on his show last night, continuing to blame President Trump for the Democrat riots. He believes the riots are all understandable and we are all to blame for this.
It’s our fault that criminals and rioters are going scorched earth. They’re just frustrated and their behavior is “tragic” and “understandable.” After all, we enslaved people.
Lemon tore into Trump because, of course, he’s to blame for Democrat riots since he didn’t like football players kneeling to show their disrespect for the flag, the country, the military, and law enforcement.
It’s everyone’s fault but the Democrats who are the ones rioting, led by Black Lives Matter and the all-white Antifa.
Democrats are using the riots to ‘prove’ we need Democrats in power. Everything you see is because of Republicans, according to Al Franken.
“The anger that you’re seeing, the frustration that you’re seeing is completely understandable,” says former Sen. Al Franken, reacting to protests erupting across the US over the death of George Floyd. “This is not Minneapolis. This is a national problem.” https://t.co/6t3pjv43z6 pic.twitter.com/HYJnVfpctd

Several of the black people killed by police and used as examples of police brutality were criminals in the act of committing crimes.
Don Lemon sympathizes with the looters:
.@DonLemon is lying and spewing venom and he knows it. Conservatives, white people, everyone is universally outraged about what happened to George Floyd. And yet he has this strawman built. Also, we’re apparently not allowed to say arson, destruction, looting, and rioting are bad pic.twitter.com/vfD10QW5S3

DON’T MOURN STORES BURNING, IT’S THE FAULT OF ALL POLICE
Later in the night, Lemon was back on the air as Minneapolis was burning.
“OK, so people should not be rioting. But do you understand what is behind that rioting? People should not be looting. Do you understand what is behind that looting? Do you have as much outrage for that, or for a man on the ground with a police officer with his knee on his neck… what are you more outraged by? What matters more… a highly insured store? No one wants to lose their business, don’t get me wrong. And don’t twist what I’m saying, and there is nuance…. I’m not encouraging rioting, I’m trying to explain what’s going on there,” Lemon said. “Why are you mourning a Target store or an auto body store… and you’re not placing that same emphasis, if not more, on the conditions that led to this happening on the injustice that man felt on the ground?”
Tell that to this man:

CNN: THEY’RE JUST ‘CROWDS OF PROTESTERS’
While reporting that the local police station was on fire, looting was underway, and the Minnesota National Guard was being deployed, @CNN's @donlemon still referred to the Minneapolis rioters as "protesters". This is CNN. pic.twitter.com/EzsO086XVk

BUT…BUT…IT’S ‘ENTIRELY PEACEFUL’
CNN is still reporting the riots are “entirely peaceful,” as in the case of Miguel here who said it and had a bottle thrown at him.
A CNN anchor just said on live TV that the riots in MN were “entirely peaceful” and a “merry caravan” and then seconds later someone throws a bottle directly at him.

As Ali Velshi said yesterday, it’s peaceful, don’t mind the burning building.

The College Football Hall of Fame in Atlanta has been destroyed.
The sport of football represents bringing people of all backgrounds together for a common goal. Last night, rioters obliterated the hall of fame.
