As I’ve said before, I have absolutely NO problems with peaceable protests by any group of people for any reason, memorials, etc. I won’t be joining them, but that is an absolute right to do so… PEACEABLY… That is guaranteed by the 1st Amendment.
These are the ‘white supremacists’ that are rioting…
Full article, HERE.
And they are burning bookstores… HERE.
And churches… HERE.
But I wouldn’t try that again at the Alamo… HERE.
And I wonder who is ‘conveniently’ placing pallets of bricks in various cities that ‘happen’ to be right in the path of the rioters???
Interesting to note that very little coverage is provided of the people who are defending their property/businesses anywhere with guns. That isn’t making the MSM at all. And it seems the rioters in LA are staying out of Koreatown… LOL

Common sense says don’t be where you may be caught up in an ongoing situation. If you are, get out/away as soon as possible. Carry a weapon if you can, or at least pepper spray. Be prepared to defend yourself and your loved ones. Now is NOT the time to play nice with the people who are not peaceably assembling!
