iPhone : More open threats of violence against protesters. Our leaders are always condemning Venezuela and Iran and China for being mean to protesters (even when they’re not!). Meanwhile our president is celebrating setting attack dogs and other “ominous weapons” on them. twitter.com/realdonaldtrum…

iPhone : Why do police keep killing black people?

iPhone : No one made America this way, not the Russians, not the Chinese, not even Trump. It’s how it’s always been. Michael brown, Trayvon Martin, Tamir Rive, a massive expansion of our wars happened under Obama, remember? This is systematic. It won’t change until we get that.

iPhone : Violence against unarmed civilians deemed to be inferior is what America does, in Vietnam, in Afghanistan, in Iraq and here against black, brown and poor communities. This is who we are at home and around the world: a violent thieving brutal nation that murders unarmed civilians.

iPhone : It’s funny how easily the Empire’s mask falls off.

One of the many issues that Americans love to condescendingly preach to non-Western countries about is press freedoms.

A Target and a Wendy’s burn down and they start detaining CNN reporters live on air 😂 #minneapolis twitter.com/independent/st…

iPhone : Looting is what Americas oligarchs have been doing for decades. Whats happening in Minneapolis is an uprising.

iPhone : The US is lucky there isn't another world power out there with a dogmatic belief in its own inherent goodness combined with a Messianic obsession it has to spread its "goodness" to "lesser" nations.

If there was, chances are it'd be bombing the US now to "save it" from itself... twitter.com/jakelubb/statu…

iPhone : Horrific scenes in Moscow* as police beat protestors with batons. European governments, especially the British youd imagine, will be sure to call out the Russians & propose sanctions for this sort of human rights abuse.

*only kidding, it’s New York

iPhone : It’s always someone else’s fault. Imagine being so ignorant you think America before 2016 was just fine, that police murdering black people and a broken healthcare system and corruption and protests weren’t a thing until Trump and it’s all the fault of the Russians! twitter.com/andylassner/st…

iPhone : Look what I found outside #dcprotest. An obvious cop dressed like a protester getting out of an unmarked car and telling me he’s a CNN reporter. Beware of the lying provocateurs out here!

iPhone : NYPD commandeered a city bus for prisoner transport. The driver steps off the bus and refuses to drive it. Crowd cheering. #Brooklyn #BarclaysCenter #BlackLivesMatter #GeorgeFloyd

iPhone : There is nothing going on here that seems to warrant a military force. They have assault rifles, side arms, batons, zip ties, they are prepared for all out war.

The BT team has arrived in Minneapolis and will continue to serve as the media arm of the movement.

iPhone : “The Atlanta Police Department has a precinct inside CNN Center.”

What sort of media outlet embeds itself so closely with security forces? Very disturbing, then again almost all their analysts are former military or CIA or FBI or NSA

iPhone : Reminds me of “several officers from the US Army’s 4th Psychological Operations (PSYOPS) Group at Ft. Bragg worked in the news division at CNN’s Atlanta headquarters starting in the final days of the Kosovo War.”

iPhone : While unrest erupts across the US and protesters clash with secret service outside the White House, this US government official thinks he has the authority to moralize against the Venezuelan government... is anyone buying this? twitter.com/secpompeo/stat…

iPhone : The DC protest at the White House is intensifying #floydgeorge. Barriers downed, sporadic police clashes
