Because he wants vigilante violence from his side. There was absolutely no other reason to mention 2nd Amendment in that speech. This is what fascists do, they replace the law with armed supporters who are only accountable to them.

Can the mainstream media end their cowardly deference to the Republican Party & admit if they still back  @Donald J. Trump now that they are also 100% responsible for all of his horrible actions? If they don’t challenge him now, there is no difference between Trump & entire  @GOP.

Is the military authorized to shoot and kill American citizens according to Trump’s Rose Garden declaration? Asking for a friend and the whole country. Are we at war ... with us?

This will be helpful to remember if Democrats regain the White House. Biggest domestic terrorists in America are almost all right-wing groups according to the FBI and ADL. Good to know we can use unlimited military force on them.

We spent a decade warning about pitchforks. The establishment thought we were the radicals. No, we were warning you this was inevitable if there wasn't systemic change. But you didn't do a thing. Now we have pitchforks in the streets. The powerful did this through their inaction.

Here is  @John Hickenlooper opponent, former Speaker of the House in Colorado,  @Andrew Romanoff with a much better answer, explaining the specific ways he has tried to help while acknowledging none of us have done enough because the same problem still persists.

WATCH: At today’s #RacialJusticeForumCO, John @Hickenlooper & I were asked what #BlackLivesMatter means to each of us. For me, it means acknowledging & addressing the structural racism that has plagued our nation since before its founding.

My answer below; Hick’s follows. #cosen

Every life matters is not a great answer by  @John Hickenlooper here. He said nothing about the unique and ugly way African-Americans have been treated by police & society. Moderate Democrats like him are exactly the folks who have not shown the courage to change the system.

... he screams into the ether from his underground bunker.

The president that is considered tough by his supporters, rage tweeted and threatened Americans' lives, then went and hid in an underground bunker. This is your alpha male? https://thehill.com/homenews/administration/500394-trump-taken-to-underground-bunker-during-white-ho...

“It appears the woman is walking out with a cheesecake after a Cheesecake Factory was looted. Unclear where she may have gotten that.” Where do they find these anchors?

Television is a compliance machine. The internet is a revolution machine.

This is the quote that the establishment most hates because they think they’re being so open-minded when they tell folks that they’re on their side but they’ll get to it later. This is what Democratic leadership says on every issue. Gee, I wonder if they really are on our side.

People wondering why frustration is spilling over into the streets when this same issue hasn’t changed in decades (centuries). If you’re not happy about the unrest today, you might want to fundamentally change some things.

Here is a gift to white people who insist they know what Martin Luther King Jr. would have said. A thread

Did you check with anybody to see if that’s legal? You know you run a giant government with thousands of employees. Also, you’re a terrorist organization. How I do know? I “designated” it earlier today. (Note to Secret Service: I’m being sarcastic)

You schmuck, the reporter is asking facetiously. He asked if the check was signed in blood. You really think Soros is sending personal checks to this doofus?

.@TheYoungTurks played THIS video, not any conservative news outlet, from MARCH 21 2017,  that talks about paid GEORGE SOROS protestors. 

From THE YOUNG TURKS—far leftists! @cenkuygur this is his political reporter, Michael Tracey!

We all want everyone to be safe. No one is in favor of looting, especially people taking advantage of the situation that aren't part of the community or protests. But local news gives the impression that is the main thing happening. Only experts on are propaganda for complacency.

Local news has been universally terrible in LA. They give no context or history whatsoever. In fact, they appear to be completely ignorant of it. One reporter said - all this over one cop. Wow. Instead, they've been doing riot porn 24/7 & trying to get everyone to comply.

On the other hand, there is this. Why? What’s the point of this stormtrooper knocking down an elderly man with a cane? Did it look like there was an impending emergency? This is unfortunately what most police are taught - when in doubt, use excessive force.

Video shows a SWAT team at one of the #protests knock down an older man with a cane.

This almost made me cry. See, that wasn’t hard. First thing you need is empathy. Stop dressing (and acting) like stormtroopers. Actually care for and serve the community, and we wouldn’t have any of these problems.  #BeLikeChris  #GeorgeFloyd  #BlackLivesMatter

Genesee County Sheriff (Flint, Michigan) Chris Swanson put down his helmet and baton and asked protesters how he could help. 

The protesters chanted "walk with us" so the Sheriff joined — and walked alongside the protesters in solidarity.

Leadership.🌎❤️

“The spark is police. But the kindling that made the house burn down was joblessness, unemployment, poor housing, concentrated poverty, people without opportunity who were just done with that and needed... to say, ‘This must change.’” —  @Keith Ellison https://www.thenation.com/article/activism/keith-ellison-george-floyd-police-brutality/

The military is monitoring protests in *six states* plus Minnesota, per Pentagon docs leaked to me.

“We’re a combat unit not trained for riot control or safely handling civilians in this context,” National Guard member deployed to Minnesota told me:

A few years ago, I was driving home from my teaching job at an elementary school in the Bronx, on my way to pick up my 3-year-old son and wind down for the evening. I saw sirens flashing in my rearview mirror.

Trump just said, "MAGA loves the black people." Gee, I wonder why he's polling at near zero percent with African-Americans?
