ask jcmb81, he/she brought the group up including a former KKK member arrested in Seattle! I dont' mean to laugh but the KKK and Nazi movements...sorry...lol.

At least ANTIFA, missed named though it may be, is an original updated name for a radical group and dresses in ominous dark clothing and masked faces.

James Brown did the best Boogaloo...I'm sorry, just not that intimidating of a name and dudes wear bright colored Hawaiian shirts and sounds ike the name of the London club Austin Powers hung out in or a '60s British Invasion band. "Look out, here come The Boogaloos''...lol.

Nazis and Klan members are everywhere apparantly. Didn't know that. The last old school Klan organization had died out by the early '80s after a slow death.

Wonder when ANTIFA is going to infiltrate the national Boogaloos protest marches and manipulate the black community to loot high-end shopping districts and their own neighborhoods?

Cleveland has always been an iffy proposition, at least the past 50 or so years, but we saw all the blue progressive cities lack of leadership and control in dealing with protesters and widespread looting. The bad folks saw the lack of control and how easy it is to make cops the problem. The criminal element love this mentality.

But the white social justice warriors have the answers and solutions from their urban studies courses, so we're all in good hands. They're going to rescue the black community.

Good luck in downtown Cleveland.
Man, you right-wingers are relentless with your Antifa boogey man, your "social justice warrior" talk (aka, anybody who cares about equality and fairness is some kind of goofy tree-hugger, or whatever) and the like. And your snide remark about SJWs "rescu(ing) the black community" is offensive, almost to the point of being mildly racist in itself... And what do you mean by your constant refrain that Clevelanders should be somehow thankful that its not a 'progressive city?' Again I ask you: is a heavy-handed, police-state attack on peaceful protesters like what Trump did at Lafayette Square just so he could hold and upside down Bible in front of a church he never attends for a convenient photo-op, the type of system you would prefer? Note: I'm not talking about the vandals and looters, I'm only talking about peaceful decent people who are simply fed up with the racial cop killings a la George Floyd.

The boogaloo is a code word among white supremacist hate groups for a race war. Many of the knuckleheads actually believe if they infiltrate or otherwise ramp up violence and looting at the protests, white society will turn on them and foment a race war. It's about as sensible as the thankfully long-gone Charles Manson was spouting as a justification for the mass murder he perpetrated.

... and btw, contrary the previous delusional poster, hate groups and the KKK are far from being 'dead.' Certain individuals want you to believe that for whatever agenda they've got, who knows...?

This thread is infected by a poster who knows little about Cleveland. Here's the reality about the Cleveland riot and looting. Most of those arrested initially were from Cuyahoga County and Greater Cleveland, with just several persons from elsewhere in northeast Ohio and one person from Columbus.

<<Cuyahoga County Jail records, however, show no arrests of anyone from outside the state of from over the weekend.

Police arrested 15 people from outside Cuyahoga County during the protests, including people from Mentor, Elyria, Copley, Macedonia, Ashtabula, Columbus, Lorain Willoughby, Amherst, Kent, Stow, Cuyahoga Falls and Oberlin, according to jail records.

Most of those charged were from Cleveland. Dozens of others are from suburbs like Solon, Parma Heights, Maple Heights and Warrensville Heights.>>

https://www.cleveland.com/metro/2020...tatements.html

Perhaps seeking to deflect blame from his poor leadership, Cleveland Police Chief Calvin Williams initially blamed the rioting and looting on persons from "outside the area" and said some were from out of state, according to above article.

Two persons were detained in downtown Cleveland who were from Erie, and these persons now face federal charges, but were not apparently initially arrested.

I could find no reports of the Villa being looted on Monday, June 8. What is the source of this statement? This story says that the Villa was looted on Saturday, May 30, and again on Sunday May 31.

<<Several others face charges that accuse them of looting the Villa shoe store on East 79th Street and Euclid Avenue, once late Saturday and again Sunday morning.>>

Take it for what it's worth. But having listened to the scanners, there is a ton of stuff that goes on that never gets reported on.

Absolutely true. Listening to the Cleveland police scanner at night you would almost think there’s a battle going on. “Shots fired” calls all over the city.
The Hough riot and the Glenville shootout in the 60’s left scars on east side landscape that are still visible today.
The killing of George Floyd by a terrible human was absolutely terrible. But let’s not use this for a political dog and pony show for BLM,politicians,media,Hollywood,etc.. Where is the outrage of the weekly and daily killings in American cities, and high black on black murder rates? Don’t these killings mater? Or Is it just convenient when it’s a white cop killing a black person? If people want to have real dialect these are questions that should be dealt with. No sugarcoating. Let’s call it like it is. Open and honest dialect.
If we can reduce crime in what we perceive as the hood or a ghetto neighborhood, people would come back and people would again invest/develope. It happened in Tremont, it’s happening in Ohio city and Gordon Square for a couple examples. Like Jimmy said listen to those police scanners and you’ll know what a difficult job they face in our fair city of Cleveland. But rioting and looting is not the answer.

Your social math skills stink, but that's hardly surprising given your very memorable past posts, notably IMO regarding Tamir Rice.

Given the toll, both in mortality and economically, on African Americans of the COVID-19 crisis and indisputable examples of police brutality against African Americans, it's understandable why African Americans and a majority of Americans overall now demand respect for their woes. Black lives do matter, whether you like the movement or not.

This is not to excuse property destruction and looting, shootings, etc.

When we create cesspools of human despair, compounded by the easy availability of guns, what do you think will be the consequences?

Default Antifa presence in riots nil, despite Big Lie claims to contrary?

Big Lie propagandists are alive and well in both the upper echelons of the Trump regime and at Trump News (Fox News). The accusations, so far unsupported by evidence, in this thread are hardly surprising given the avalanche of falsity dumped on the nation's intellectually vulnerable.

<<“Corrupt politicians scared us into giving up control over the most basic questions in our own lives,” Carlson declared with aim directly at Democrats, even though the White House is held by Republican Donald Trump. “At the same time, they gave more power to their obedient followers like Antifa, while keeping the rest of us trapped at home and censored online,” Carlson asserted.

Despite such claims by Carlson and the former Celebrity Apprentice host, the anti-fascist group, which have become an obsession in FNC and GOP circles, has not shown up so far in any of the Justice Department cases of those arrested for looting and unrest following Floyd’s death.>>
