‘What we’re dealing with is more than a mere unruly mob… It’s a well-planned rebellion playing out on the streets of urban America’
JUNE 22, 2020
Never underestimate your enemy.
The mainstream media would have us believe that the protests and riots that have swept the nation after the death of George Floyd are spontaneous demonstrations whose large turnouts validate the notion that the ideas they argue for— such as abolishing the police — are widely popular.
The average American does not have a full understanding of how much time and money it takes to pull off mass organization such as the one currently taking place. But at The New American, we have long reported on the vast amount of money and institutional resources being poured into Black Lives Matter and Antifa by global elites such as George Soros.
That these radical insurrectionists are so highly funded, organized, and armed should be a cause for concern among Americans and inspire patriots to greater involvement in the well-being of their local communities.
Nevertheless, many continue to write off Antifa, BLM, and other left-wing revolutionary groups as nothing more than unorganized college kids who, should they turn violent, could swiftly be dealt with by a lone gun-toting patriot.
Yet reality presents a far different picture. A recently published document by rioters in Minneapolis who successfully ran police out of the Third Precinct reveals an understanding of the principles of fourth-generation warfare, along with a well-honed level of coordination.
In short, what we’re dealing with is more than a mere unruly mob. It’s a well-planned rebellion playing out on the streets of urban America.
Published at the blog CrimethInc, which describes itself as a “rebel alliance” and a “think tank” for “anonymous collective action,” the article is titled “The Siege of the Third Precinct in Minneapolis: An Account and Analysis.”
“In this anonymous submission, participants in the uprising in Minneapolis in response to the murder of George Floyd explore how a combination of different tactics compelled the police to abandon the Third Precinct,” reads a summary of the breakdown, whose author remains anonymous.
The author explains that the key to their victory over police was the combination of violent members of the “crowd” with nonviolent ones, the latter giving the former cover to attack police while making law-enforcement officers hesitant to hit back with lethal force:
We call the battles of the second and third days at the Precinct a siege because the police were defeated by attrition. The pattern of the battle was characterized by steady intensification punctuated by qualitative leaps due to the violence of the police and the spread of the conflict into looting and attacks on corporate-owned buildings. The combination of the roles listed above helped to create a situation that was unpoliceable, yet which the police were stubbornly determined to contain. The repression required for every containment effort intensified the revolt and pushed it further out into the surrounding area. By Day Three, all of the corporate infrastructure surrounding the Third Precinct had been destroyed and the police had nothing but a “kingdom of ashes” to show for their efforts. Only their Precinct remained, a lonely target with depleted supplies. The rebels who showed up on Day Three found an enemy teetering on the brink. All it needed was a final push.
As the author noted, the radicals’ goal was to stir the police to violence: “It’s important to note that the dynamic we saw on Day Two did not involve using non-violence and waiting for repression to escalate the situation. Instead, a number of individuals stuck their necks out very far to invite police violence and escalation.”
But once officers moved to engage, the mob employed their “peaceful” members to discourage reprisal, “interrupting police violence with strategically deployed ‘innocence’ (‘Hands up! Don’t shoot!’).”
The analysis goes on to relate that the crowd learned to quickly deal with tear gas by setting up eye-flushing stations with the help of on-scene medics. Once they learned that concussion grenades are not physically harmful if one is more than five feet away from them, the crowd remained calm when confronted by that type of weapon.
The insurrectionists also used looting as a battle tactic. “Looters can help feed and heal the crowd while simultaneously disorienting the police. In turn, those going head to head with the police can generate opportunities for looting,” the article reads.
“Employing stores of looted bottled water, many people in the crowd were able to learn and quickly execute eye-flushing,” it states about their response to tear gas.
Of course all this ignores the biggest weapon in their arsenal: Sympathizers in the government who keep the police from taking decisive action against them.
The analysis closes with a section titled “Visions of the Commune,” a description of the agitators’ reveling in the mayhem they created:
As the police made their retreat, a young Somali woman dressed in traditional garb celebrated by digging up a landscaping brick and unceremoniously heaving it through a bus stop shelter window. Her friends — also traditionally dressed — raised their fists and danced.
A masked shirtless man skipped past the burning Precinct and pumped his fists, shouting, “COVID IS OVER!” while twenty feet away, some teenage girls took a group selfie. Instead of saying “Cheese!” they said “Death to the pigs!” Lasers flashed across the smoke-filled sky at a police helicopter overhead.
A young kid who couldn’t be more than seven or eight years old walked up to us with a whiskey bottle sporting a rag coming out the top. “Y’all got a light?” We laughed and asked, “What do you wanna hit?” He pointed to a friendly grocery store and we asked if he could find “an enemy target.” He immediately turned to the US Bank across the street.
If the nation’s patriots don’t cease their underestimation of the Marxsist revolutionaries and rise to the occasion, the “Commune” will soon come to every neighborhood in America.
They say it enforces negative stereotypes.

There is a growing trend of newspapers across the country that are refusing to publish mugshot galleries because the pictures of minority criminals are supposedly reinforcing negative stereotypes.
The Tampa Bay Times announced on Monday that they would stop publishing mugshot galleries due to concerns that they “disproportionately show black and brown faces.”
“The galleries lack context and further negative stereotypes,” Tampa Bay Times executive editor Mark Katches said in a statement.
“We think the data is an important resource that our newsroom will continue to analyze and watch carefully, but the galleries alone serve little journalistic purpose,” he added.
They followed suit shortly after the Orlando Sentinel announced that they were making a similar decision.
“We’ve come to realize that without context, the galleries have little journalistic value and may have reinforced negative stereotypes,” the Sentinel wrote about the paper’s decision to censor their mugshot database.
In addition, all Gannett-owned papers have announced that they will no longer publish “mugshot galleries, or mugshot photos that are not associated with a story or other editorial content,” according to a Poynter report.
This is part of a broader campaign to suppress facts about crime from being known by the greater public. Big League Politics has reported about how tech corporations are censoring crime statistics from being shared on their platforms:
Instagram is banning federal crime statistics, which drive a stake through the heart of Black Lives Matter’s narrative regarding supposed racial disparities, from being shared on their platform…
The murder rate is incredibly skewed with whites being killed by blacks at a extremely disproportional rate.
In a survey conducted by the Bureau of Justice Statistics, they found that there were a stunning 593,598 instances of documented interracial violent incidents last year, counting black-on-white instances as well as white-on-black instances. The findings are absolutely stunning.
Blacks committed an incredible 537,204 instances of interracial violent attacks against white people, accounting for 90 percent of the violence. White people only committed 56,394 attacks against black people over the same time period. Considering how many more white people there are in the country than blacks, these numbers are staggering.
In addition, data from the Justice Department recorded from 2017 indicates that black people are over-represented when it comes to hate crimes as well while white people are under-represented by 24 percent…
The Silicon Valley titans are at war against the truth. They want the left-wing mob to loot, riot and destroy without the public ever understanding what’s really going on.

On Wednesday night several Atlanta police officers called off after .
From the Atlanta Journal Constitution:
“There are officers saying they are not going to leave the precinct unless to help another officer,” Vince Champion, Southeast regional director for the International Brotherhood of Police Officers, told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “Some are walking off and sitting in their personal vehicles.”
And the Atlanta Police confirmed there was a “call out” tonight.
Decaturish was first to confirm the reports of the police call out in Atlanta.
On Thursday morning far left activist Michael Eric Dyson, who has no love for cops, cheered the news and hoped they all get fired.
Time to start thinking about leaving the city.
BLM protester tongue-lashed at mostly peaceful counter-demonstration in Bethel, Ohio
A Black Lives Matter protest that descended on the small rural town of Bethel, Ohio, this week was met by over 700 mostly peaceful counter-protesters affiliated with motorcycle clubs and “Back the Blue” groups.
The counter-demonstrators, some of whom were armed with rifles and baseball bats, were filmed by the BLM protesters, and several videos have circulated on social media that were posted with the intent of doxxing counter-protesters.
One heated exchange between the two sides was posted to Twitter by a Black Lives Matter account which captioned the video, “Ohio Trump supporters & counter protesters to the Black Life Matters movement threaten and scream to protesters ‘This is a Rublican State’ and a host of other racial slurs.”
While no distinguishable racial slurs or threats can be seen in the video, one man can be seen firmly telling a Black Lives Matter protester “Get this on your phone. This ain’t Seattle, this isn’t a Democratic state here, we don’t put up with your shit. All lives matter here.”
“This is a mother f*cking Republican state, b*tch, we don’t play here,” another man added.
The video was also posted to YouTube.
The counter demonstration was mostly peaceful, save for one instance when a Black Lives Matter protester was struck in the head. Various verbal altercations between the two groups ensued, and one female Black Lives Matter activist who marched into the counter-protest had her Black Lives Matter sign removed and destroyed.
Black Lives Matter protests throughout the country were cited as the impetus for the massive turnout amongst counter-protesters on Sunday. Protests that have devolved into violent race riots in Minnesota, New York, Georgia, and Illinois have seen countless instances of property damage, robbery, and politically motivated assault.
The death toll from the 2020 riots has exceeded the total number of unarmed black people killed by police in 2019, despite police brutality often being cited as justification for the violence by rioters:
While organizers, bolstered by allies in the corporate media and governments in Democrat run areas, claim the lethal riots unfolding across America have come in response to police killings of unarmed black men, the nationwide upheaval has now surpassed – in just over one week – the number of unarmed blacks killed by police in all of 2019.
According to data compiled by The Washington Post, American police killed a total of 1,004 people in 2019. Of those, 371 were white, and 236 were black.
Of the 371 whites killed by police, 20 of them were unarmed at the time. Of the 236 blacks killed by police, 9-15 of them were unarmed, depending on definition.
At the current count, at least 17 people have lost their lives as a result of the nationwide riots, in which looting, savage beatings, and gunfire have become commonplace, with radical organizations like Antifa, which President Trump recently vowed to designate as a domestic terror organization, and Black Lives Matter leading the charge.
