@normalice Ok? I don't know why you thought that would trigger me. It doesn't. I don't care.
Don't know why you thought I was trying to trigger you. Just letting you know it's not the protestors that are doing the damage?
@normalice Sorry. I received a blue downvote at right around the time you posted the link, and the language in the article seemed incendiary. So I assumed it was meant to provoke. As for the article itself. The only statistic it mentioned was that 80% of those arrested during protests in Minnesota weren't from Minnesota. I don't know what to make of that. If the outsiders arrested were aligned with the interests of the protesters, it's entirely conceivable that they were just so passionate that they traveled across state lines to protest along with them because protests hadn't started up yet wherever they were from. However, if the outsiders arrested were the ones committing the majority of property damage, that obviously wouldn't be right (the article doesn't offer anything to prove that though). The article also made claims like "most were white" and "most were right-wing", but didn't offer statistics to back that up.
The only intent was to alert people to the possibility that those doing the burning might just be trying to make the protestors look bad. Or might just be libertarians who have been tricked into thinking anarchy is an attractive idea. Who knows. The point is the mayor of Minnesota said all of their arrests were from out of state and many were linked to white supremacy groups. But when you see protestors standing next to something burning it's hard to not immediately make the leap to "setup."
