Oh, but it's a Gen Z organization that's doing the one in San Mateo! A bunch of teenie-boppers wouldn't turn violent, would they?

I think the San Mateo one is also organized by BLM. Too many to keep up.
The Redwood City one yesterday had 4000 people and no riots.

Here's some completely unsurprising news. Last night the KTVU 10 o'clock news interviewed the Alameda County Sheriff and he said that of the 100+ people who were arrested for rioting in Oakland, 70% of them were from out of town! Many of them weren't even from California! I never again want to hear any nonsense from people in other states talking about the Californication of their states by our transplants.

Someone (wasn't it you?) posted yesterday, that it was a Gen Z organization, that the protest permit was issued to.

This has been the case in many of the protests that have turned violent. Thank you for posting; I don't want to hear any more denial, that the violence isn't due to outside agitators. This is a very serious concern, that outsiders of some sort (whether radical Left or radical Right) are traveling around the country, going into, in some cases, placid, upper-middle-class suburbs not known for civil disobedience, as well as into major cities, and wreaking havoc. If we deny this is going on, then we can't do anything about it. It will continue.

For example, someone posted that BLM may be the ones, who got the protest permit for San Mateo. First of all, is BLM even an organization? I don't think so. Even if it were, how are permit applications vetted? What if it's someone else entirely, posing as BLM? And finally: how many AA residents does San Mateo have? Given the pattern of destructive protests around the country, local authorities IMO should decline permit applications to groups that aren't residents of the towns where they want to demonstrate. That would do a lot to stop the mayhem.

Bellevue, WA, is an upper-crust suburb the Seattle violent protesters travelled to, after wrecking Seattle's downtown. Bellevue doesn't get involved in issues like that, at least--not in the form of taking to the streets. Pretty much the same with Santa Monica, where violent elements who trashed downtown LA went, after their LA party. It's so obvious, that a lot of this destructive energy is coming from outside. The SPLC, Minneapolis and Minnesota authorities, and various news sources, have been saying this since last week.

So let's stop acting surprised, or shaking heads in denial, and instead, get down to the business of figuring out what to do about it, before the these protests become the final death knell for an economy already reeling from Covid19.

Seems to be pretty common in the Bay Area. I lived in Berkeley during all the free speech/Antifa protests of 2017, and people would be bused or flown in. They had GoFundMe accounts or whatever b.s. to cover their tickets. Totally ridiculous.

That's been reported since these protests began, too; some supremacist groups have encrypted messages and fundraising accounts, to cover bail in case of arrest, and other expenses. And that m.o. didn't start with those Berkeley protests; it started with the WTO protests in Seattle in 1999. At this point, it's an "old" m.o., but it's been taken to new heights, and it's much more than Antifa involved. Some analysts have questioned whether it's Antifa at all this time, or whether it's others posing as Antifa, to throw the blame on the Left.

There's also the additional mystery, of who was in the Black SUV's without license plates, cruising the inner neighborhoods of Minneapolis, apparently dropping off caches of incendiary devices and pallets of bricks, into random residents' yards. Why were they allowed to circulate unimpeded, in spite of residents calling police? Who are they? What's their agenda in literally fanning the flames of urban warfare?


Creepy stuff's going on, folks.

We have had non violent protesters here in Danville.
I am like a good 3 miles east of 680 off of Diablo road.
There were a couple of peeps politely sporting signs.
I actually dug it, honked my horn and waved at them.
This is a good thing and I support that.

The other day the wife said they were planning on doing a downtown protest and then cancelled because the out of the area maniacs were going to show up and do mayhem.

That **** don’t float.
I am glad we didn’t get a visit from out of town trouble makers.
Those people are rotten.

We live in a small “bubble” type area.
My wife is a calm Canadian but she asked if we had the means to protect ourselves.
I said yup.

It is a darn shame that us decent non hate filled people have to deal with this.
My dear wife should have never had to ask me if I could keep us safe.
That in it self is awful.

We are all angry and in shock but the trouble makers are there for their own agenda.

I whole heartily support non violent protests.
The scum factor makes it rather ugly.

That’s all I got.
Andy.
