There is a lot of angry noise right now but also a noticeable, disturbing, silence.
The noise is coming, of course, from Black Lives Matter / Antifa activists and their supporters and enablers.
The silence is coming from people who are normally happy to share their views but who are keeping their heads down and their mouths shut.
Many people are afraid to express their opinions.
And not without reason.
aise your voice against riots, statue smashing, police acquiescence, political opportunism, and the accompanying corporate virtue-signaling; express any kind of concern at all about the street activism and divisive identity politics that appears so potent, and you run the risk of being accused of racism. But it seems these protests were hijacked! Back in June attorney General William Barr said Thursday that the federal government has evidence that the radical left-wing Antifa movement, as well as other extremist groups, have “hijacked” legitimate protests around the country to incite violence, and said certain “foreign actors” are seizing on the unrest to sow discord in the U.S.
“While many have peacefully expressed their anger and grief, others have hijacked protests to engage in lawlessness, violent rioting, arson, looting of businesses, and public property assaults on law enforcement officers and innocent people, and even the murder of a federal agent,” Barr said. “We have evidence that Antifa and other similar extremist groups, as well as actors of a variety of different political persuasions, have been involved in instigating and participating in the violent activity.
Barr added, “we are also seeing foreign actors playing all sides to exacerbate the violence.”
The mainstream media labeled this as conspiracy theory but one video that surfaced on the social networks seems to confirm what Barr said back in June.
The Antifa terrorists in Portland are being donated riot gear from out of state donors.
They’ve organized out of state donations for their nightly riots.

There are laws on the books that local PD can confiscate that equipment before it is distributed! Then the Feds can break up the logistic supply chain! Why is there no reaction from anyone?
