Looters Wipe Out Fifth Avenue in NYC

Gov. Cuomo went on CNN to Trash Trump for calling out the military to crush leftist mobs and looters - And this while "Looters Wipe Out Fifth Avenue in NY City!"

Governor Cuomo: "What the president today did, was he called out the American military against American citizens. That’s what they did. They used the American military to push back a peaceful protest which everyone watched on TV just so he could have a photo-op of walking to a church. When was the last time you saw the American military called out against Americans?" https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2020/06/governor-cuomo-goes...

While Cuomo was speaking, his so-called "American citizen looters" were plundering numerous stores in Manhattan on Fifth Avenue including The Macy’s Store. https://twitter.com/EammonAtkinson/status/126729300585109094...

Here we have Cuomo's peaceful protesters looting a "Nike store with police nowhere to be seen." https://twitter.com/_Crypto_Maniac_/status/12676406211347619...

In case you watch Fox and missed these details, the looting on 5th Avenue had no connection to the protests. It, like 90% of the other looting, was the work of organized criminal gangs.

 

Mayor Cuomo's response was 100% valid.

ToadPOTUS response was 100% UNCONSTITUTIONAL.

 

GOPers like what tRump did because it set up the military to wage war on protesters, many of whom were poor and all of whom want to end the creeping Fascism in our Police.

 

Fascist cops appeal to tRump supporters for the same reason they like tRump - the Fascism both espouse. Poor people remind the Republican base how near they are to being poor, and since they worship and cannot blame the Oligarchs who have stagnated their wages for the past 40 years, they lash out at those who have no power to respond.

No one supports looting. But then, most of the looters aren't actual protesters.

 

Why does the far right say more about the looting than they do about blacks getting murdered by bad cops or about tRump threatening to order our own military to strike the Americans practicing their Constitutional right to protest?

You do not think you know what others think. You stated your opinion as a fact..it's not!

This thread is about the looting that has happened.

I said nothing about what you or anyone else "thinks". I "stated" no "opinion" or made no statement.  I asked a question, did you not see the question mark at the end of my sentence? Do you care to answer it?  If you do then I'll know what you think:

The poster never stated that.  He actually asked a question regarding what others were thinking.

You stated your opinion as a fact..it's not!
Wrong again, the poster actually asked a fact based question.

Its failure to address the root cause is very much on topic.

Sorry you feel that way but most people are sorry for the way Floyd died and accept the demonstrations but the looting/rioting by the bad people is unacceptable.  You Progressive regressives should learn that.

 

 

I can't help it. I always get the giggles when the regressives try to call the progressives "regressive-progressives". It just sounds so much like in 8th grade when somebody gets hit with a really good burn and the only comeback they can find is one of the dumbest things ever said......but  they are stuck with it.  HEY, kind of like Trump's responses.

It's NOT regressive Progressive - it's Progressive regressive!  If you're regressive and a Progressive, you're stuck with that title!

So, did Trump send special units to Fifth Ave to keep the peace or was that just for the peaceful protesters in Lafayette Square?

Wrong ... it was for using "American military against American citizens" as documented in your very own next paragraph!

And the mobs and looters were people instigated by Trump supporting White Supremacists posing as Antifa on Twitter .... that's why Twitter removed their falsified account!

 

 

Governor Cuomo: "What the president today did, was he called out the American military against American citizens. That’s what they did.

I'm guessing 99% of protesters are peaceful. But what does the Fox Propaganda Network show their viewers 24/7? You guessed it, the 1% who are looting. Therefore, in Fox World, everyone protesting is a thug. 

 

Meanwhile, they never talk about the real issue, the murder of George Floyd. Why? Because they couldn't care less.

Agreed. Destruction of property is more disturbing to them than the destruction of a black life.

So one should ignore what is happening to the business that have been destroyed and or looted?

Destroyed by Trump supporting White Supremacist instigators posing as Antifa on a bogus Twitter account!

Fortunately, Twitter removed that account and since then most protests have been peaceful.

You should care MORE about George Floyd. Your media should care MORE about George Floyd. Conservative news viewers should care MORE about George Floyd.

 

Do you know how bad it looks when conservative media covers all the white guys going apoplectic demonstrating because the government took away their freedom to eat in restaurants and get a pedicure? But ignores the fact the government took away a black man’s life?  That is the ultimate denial of freedom. You all relate more to the loss of property than to the loss of a black man’s life. And Fox knows it and profits off it.

They very plainly state the death of George Floyd was wrong, but the looting/rioting by bad people is wrong. Why are they wrong to say this? I don't see it as putting property value above the value of a life.
Seems like you are saying one can only see wrong in one thing at a time.

Kidboy was the one who originally quoted the line "Property Rights Matter".  We all agree that looting and rioting is bad but the regressives want that to be the entire story.  Remember that this started with Colin K "taking a knee" to protest how blacks are treated in this country and Trump vilified him. As always, everything Trump touches, fails so we now have mass protests leading to rioting in the streets.  Instead of promoting the peaceful protests, Trump attacked them with tear gas and pepper rounds.  If the regressives stop trying to make this about the few looters, they might see the justice being denied.

No one is ignoring the fact that we had a killing of a black man by a police officer. Its time you see that..its a over the news, including FOX. As it should be.

FYI This thread is "Looters Wipe Out Fifth Avenue in NYC".

You can ignore what the looters have done but it does not change it.

You can post" Destruction of property is more disturbing to them than the destruction of a black life." I think most are disturbed over both the needless killing of a human and the needless destruction of property.

For those of you unfamiliar with NYC, 5th Ave. is 6.2 miles long. It runs through one of the most expensive shopping districts in the world, it includes Museum Mile and Millionaires row.

 

5th Ave. runs from Washington Square park in Greenwich Village to West 143rd St. In Harlem. To say "looters wipe out 5th Avenue" is ludicrous.
