Minnesota officials blame ‘white supremacists’, ‘foreign actors’ for race riots

Minneapolis officials on Saturday said that 80 percent of the people who had been arrested during the riots were from out of state. Governor Tim Walz - a Democrat - also blamed "white supremacists" for the mayhem even though #BlackLivesMatter had claimed responsibility for the racial unrest.

    Walz’s false claims were exposed within hours on Saturday after a local news outlet took the trouble to review the public jail records.

    FOX 9 Minneapolis-St. Paul reported that the overwhelming majority of people arrested in connection with the Minneapolis unrest have Minnesota addresses. Reporters did a search of the online Hennepin County Jail log to uncover the fake news.

    “Of the 45 people arrested for rioting, unlawful assembly, stolen property, burglary or robbery on May 29 and May 30 so far, 38 had Minnesota addresses, according to publicly available jail records reviewed by FOX 9.”

    Only six had out-of-state address, and one person had no address information listed, the newscasters said. In visuals from the riots, there were countless scenes of “black power” salutes.

    Despite the claim being false, Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey echoed Governor Walz’s curious statement: “We are now confronting white supremacists, members of organized crime, out of state instigators, and possibly even foreign actors to destroy and destabilize our city and our region.”

    City and state officials had repeatedly claimed that the majority of rioters were from out of state. Even President Trump, who reportedly does not want to hurt his campaign’s “chances at coalition building with minority communities ahead of the election,” repeated the fake news.

    It is not clear how Walz had arrived at these numbers anyway because on Thursday, no rioter was confirmed to have been arrested on the first three days of rioting. In fact, even on Saturday, Walz said he did not want any of the rioters “arrested,” he just wants them to “go home”.

    “We cannot arrest people when we are trying to hold ground because of the sheer size, the dynamics, and wanton violence,” Walz admitted.

    Shops put up signs announcing they were a “black owned business” in a bid to prevent BLM/Antifa rioters from destroying them.
