Ugly Race Riot in Milwaukee

I am just hearing about this right now, but it has been going on for a couple of days now ever since Saturday night, August 13. There was more rioting on Sunday night on August 14 and early this Monday morning on August 15.

This is a very ugly race riot. It reminds me of the Watts Riots and the LA Riots in 1993. The things that remind me of those riots:

  • Ongoing rioting for more than a day. A riot lasting more than a day is always an ugly riot.
  • Multiple buildings looted and seven businesses set ablaze or destroyed.
  • Eight police wounded. That’s a lot.
  • Heavy gunfire through much of the rioting. During the very bad LA riots mentioned above, there was usually a lot of gunfire such that police were often pinned down and unable to respond.
  • People wounded by gunfire. People getting shot is always bad news. A lot of people got shot in the Watts Riots.
  • Attacks on fire trucks and firemen. When they start attacking the fire trucks and firemen, you know it’s a bad riot. There were a lot of attacks on firefighters in both LA riots. The Watts Riots were especially bad in that regard.
  • Attempts to pull White motorists out of their cars so they can assault them. This is how the famous assault on Reginald Denny occurred in the LA riots. This sort of thing was also going on in the Watts riots. When a bad race riot like this breaks out, all Whites really need to stay the Hell away and not go lookie-looing at it.
  • Two police cars set ablaze and several more damaged. When they start setting police cars on fire, it’s always a bad riot.

When things like that start happening, it is more than just a police riot. Now you have an out and out race riot similar to the ones we had so many of back in the 1960’s.

August 13, Night

Several cars, including one police car, set on fire.

BP gas station, O’Reilly auto parts store, beauty supply store and BMO Harris branch bank set on fire. The gas station was looted before it was burned.

Supermarket and liquor store destroyed.

Metro PCS along with other stores looted.

When police arrived, gunshots were heard. Firefighters could not put out gas station fire at first due to gunshots but eventually got the fire under control. Rioters attacked fire trucks with bricks. One fireman injured when hit with a brick. Reporters and photographers attacked. One shoved to the ground and assaulted.

Four police wounded.

17 rioters arrested.

August 14, Night

Crowd threw objects at police.

White man shot and wounded near the rioting, apparently by Black rioters. Possibly targeted due to his race. Police needed armored car to retrieve him.

Rioters attempted to pull White motorists out of their cars in order to assault them them.

Gunfire reported. 30 shots fired during the rioting.

August 15, early AM

Three police cars and one BearCat vehicle damaged.

One vehicle and one dumpster set on fire.

Windows broken on store.

Four police wounded.

14 rioters arrested.

    Expect this stuff to get a lot worse after Trump gains power. Black Lives Matter etc… won’t allow it to happen without a backlash. Things will get so bad to remain moral integrity, as in Hitler’s Germany, it would be best to get out or get caught up in the hate.

    • Jason Y

      Some idiots on the web say a Trump presidency won’t produce a race war backlash. HA HA. I wish. That’s wishful thinking for sure.

      • TJF

        To Jason Y:

        Expect this stuff to get a lot worse after Trump gains power.

        I put the odds of a Trump presidency at less than 5% unless there is both a major Islamic terrorist attack and a nationwide race riot in October. Even then I would guess the odds to be less than 50%. He has publicly stated many times that he wants immigration restriction but I don’t see how a Trump presidency would trigger a large race riot or that the response under such a regime would be substantially harsher than in the recent past.

        Riots are managed at the city level unless they get out of hand, at which point the state governor can call in the National Guard (The National Guard is invoked by the state governor not the President). IF Trump were to follow through on his promises to deport illegal aliens, this would basically benefit blacks as manual jobs positions would become available, wages would rise, and housing costs will fall. Of course that would be a big IF … In reality Trump is a showman, enjoys the attention, but very likely would turn over day to day affairs to someone else. I see Trump neither fulfilling the wishes of his supporters nor the feared Armageddon of his opponents if he is elected – albeit I think we would see a substantial amount of drama in the press.

        • Jason Y

          I hope what your saying is true. However, polls have failed in the past as with the Brexit thing. Also, we don’t know what will happen between now and November and it could push Trump up more than you think.

          I suppose it’s possible but I would wager a double digit gap in favor of Hilary Clinton. The press gave sort of gave Trump a pass before it became clear he was going to be nominated but now they are hell bent to keep him out (even the conservative press is vacillating and sometimes even hostile..). Trump has also fallen into some obvious traps and made himself look foolish. He could have played the Khizr Khan speech to his benefit but he responded off the cuff in a boorish manner. I suspect we will see more gaffs like this between now and the election.

    Call out the national guard and start shooting people. It will stop. That’s what was done in L.A. .

    • Jason Y

      And that’s what Trump will do. Next, large groups of NAMS would cry racism and the situation will explode further.

        No – calling out the National Guard to suppress domestic riots is managed by state governors. The President can call up the Guard for an eternal threat but not for domestic disturbances. If Trump were to attempt to do so, circumventing state authority it would very likely be challenged in court.

        • Sam J.

          If I’m not mistaken the Patriot act made that null and void.

          My thoughts on the matter are,”The Nazis never burnt my town down. The Nazis never called me a racist. The Nazis never tried to pull me out of my car and kill me because I was White. Let’s put the Nazis in power”

          There were some attempts to weaken Posse Comitatus under GWB:
          https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Posse_Comitatus_Act#Legislation

          But it looks as if it still applies (with the exception of someone or some group in possession of nukes):

          https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Posse_Comitatus_Act#Exclusions_and_limitations

          That said in a serious panic Presidents can and do over step their authority .. but Trump simply will never have more than 55% of the support of the country so I strongly suspect his hands would be rather tied. I also think we would see multiple effective lawsuits from the ACLU limiting his powers.

          Possibly just the presence of Trump at the highest office, even though he doesn’t have power over state governors, would be enough to motivate radicals to cause mass rioting nationwide.

          Note things like the MLK death, Rodney King, and other incidents were all that was needed to spart riots in the past.

        • TJF

          To Jason Y:

          Martin Luther King was murdered while Lyndon B Johnson was in office (an ally of King’s and a major push behind civil rights legislation). In other such an even could possibly happen again but it could happen regardless of who holds the Presidency. The same can be said for the Rodney King riots – They could happen under any Presidency.

          Possibly just the presence of Trump at the highest office, even though he doesn’t have power over state governors, would be enough to motivate radicals to cause mass rioting nationwide.

          I doubt just Trump’s presence in oval office by itself would trigger riots but it would create a bit of angst among the intelligentsia. Note, the worst race based riots in 23 years occurred under a Black left of center President. Media frenzy (including social media) seems to be driving disturbances more than local or national politicians.

        • Jason Y

          HA HA If bad riots occured under a center left president (Johnson), then IMAGINE what will happen under a president endorsed by DAVID DUKE

      Most of this ethnically polarized conflict is where a large majority of one group exists. Note the blacks in Northeast Tennessee hardly ever think of things in racial terms. You would find that in Atlanta. However, in my area you have a lot of rebel flags being raised so definitely the white majority is thinking in terms of race.

      So in any place where one group is the majority, you have greater likelihood of racism by the majority group. Poverty has little to do with it, cause you see this nationalist stuff even in rich nations where the majority wants to be punk and all that.

      • Jason Y

        These black dip-shits who wrote “Whitey on the Moon” act like they’ve never been outside the south side of Chicago or Watts. It’s much like how some rural white people act like they’ve never been outside Moonshine hollow.

        • Jason Y

          Or to be fair no different than some liberal idiots who live in suburbia. People who are all for tolerance, but that never been outside of “Leave it to Beaver” land.

          Gil Scot-Heron was quite the cosmopolitan person – his mother was a college graduate, he attended a prestigious college prep school in NYC, and toured extensively around the globe. That said I didn’t really like his music.

        • Jason Y

          In response to TJF, you got two brands of black idiots. One brainwashed by anti-white academia, and the other isolated from white people and also brainwashed by anti-white academia.

          Also with rural whites, all of the far right wing types haven’t been isolated, but a lot of them have. Possibly the ones who havent’ been isolated have had only bad experiences, as with white in prisons or in integrated schools

        • Jason Y

          Perhaps Heron was commenting on the fact that vast amounts of money were spent sending people to the moon, but in his eyes, not a dime is being spent making life better for African Americans.

        • Sam J.

          Jason Y,”…Most of this ethnically polarized conflict is where a large majority of one group exists…”

          “…Also with rural whites, all of the far right wing types haven’t been isolated, but a lot of them have…

          You say the dumbest things possible. The people who live near or have had interactions with diversity are the ones most likely to hate diversity. [Proximity breeds conflict.] The Whites with the least amount of diversity, lots of places in the North, are much more likely to be in favor of diversity. The reason is simple. They believe, like all people, that their way of thinking is the same way that everyone else thinks. They don’t realize that other races sometimes think in completely diametrically opposed positions to them. When they actually come into close proximity with diversity for a decent period of time they are shocked by the behavior of diversity. Why you, Jason Y, write differently is mind boggling, foolish or a big hasbara disinformation ploy. Remember YOU are the one that wrote about the Northerner that went teach Blacks who was so in favor of Blacks but after a time thought,”They should all be killed[meaning the Blacks]”. Didn’t think I remembered that did you? So you’re lying. Just like the evil psychopathic Jews you’re lying and trying to stir things up.

        • Jason Y

          I suppose the answer is a combo of how I and Sam think. But I don’t think that to take either one of our views to heart is the wise way to go. OK diversity sometimes brings contempt. Also, sometimes isolation from other groups breeds ignorance (and hate coming from ignorance).

        • Jason Y

          OK Sam, if ignorance of other races and isolation from other races brings love, then how come so many in East Tennessee, which has few blacks, are such racist bigots?

        • Jason Y

          Perhaps racist bigots have never come into contact with good blacks, and liberals have never come into contact with bad blacks. That seems to be the golden answer.

    I’ll note with sad irony that the armed Black perp in Milwaukee was shot by a Black cop, in a county with a Black sheriff, in a country with a Black President who appointed a Black attorney general (Basically the nation’s top law enforcement officer).

    Why the hell are there racially motivated riots in the U.S. anyway? Is there any hope for integration?

    • Jason Y

      Note the hate and violence is generally coming from unofficially segregated areas where there is also a lot of poverty. The fact whites want to abandon these people to poverty filled areas is a major reason why they would riot.

    • Sam J.

      “Why the hell are there racially motivated riots in the U.S. anyway? Is there any hope for integration?”

      No or least not as long as Black people believe that they should be able to steal, rob, rape and murder Whites.

      • Jason Y

        The only blacks wanting to rob, rape, and murder blacks are ghetto blacks, and as you said, they’re 40 percent of the black population, not all of them.

  6. Lon Spector

    America’s limited shelf life is shortly set to expire. It should now be called “The United States Of Insanity,” because thanks to the media, the population can no longer differentiate reality from fantasy. I told you about the Mars-Max. Mars making its closest approach to Earth in 18 months. This will be in effect until Sept 13th.

    On Sept 10, Neptune will be square Saturn. Something of earth- shattering proportions could happen that day even surpassing Sept 11. I see a domestic radical/ISIS axis pulling off an attack involving a weapon of mass destruction, shocking the WORLD. This will remove America from the scene (Though people who know how to live off the land can survive) Europe will be shocked out of its doldrums, and Bible prophecy will be fulfilled.

  7. kareem

    Why are there racially motivated riots like these in the U.S?

    It’s all about narrative. It has become increasingly common that whenever a black person is shot by a cop, it becomes national news. Blacks in this country, regardless of where and why, feel like they are being are treated worse in situations because they are black.. Now, this sparks a narrative that blacks are mistreated and that there is a systemic effort to keep them down. Now, the number of blacks killed by the police effectively supports this narrative, which confirms the belief of it.

    Now that the narrative exists, it becomes hard to dispel. The people who attack it, have their motivations questioned. IT doesn’t matter who you are either. A white man who attacks it is a Klansman. Even a black person who attacks is merely suffering from internalized racism.,

    These problems are exacerbated by the fact that the actual racists will make the same points as average people who are merely questioning the narrative, but they actually have more negative motives. For this reason, it becomes easier to ascribe these motives onto them . Because you’ll have someone will say that “blacks aren’t killed in out of proportion numbers”, but also said, “Niggers don’t deserve any rights!” in the same breath.

    At the end of the day, it is extremely difficult to dispel narratives and there is little hope for full integration as long as the narrative exists.

    It will take a long time for the Michael Brown shooting (from the facts at hand) to be seen as anything other than an extrajudicial execution in the eyes of a lot of black people, because supporting the narrative is the most important thing.

    Politics. Race. Feminism Religion.. All of these things are built on narratives.

    Why is it that, when an innocent black man gets shot by a cop, nothing happens yet, when it’s a thug getting his deserts, there are riots? Why?

    • Jason Y

      There is no way to really tell the difference, as far as cops are concerned, between a thug and a ordinary black guy. Perhaps a big problem is so many blacks dress like thugs, even though they aren’t thugs (in order to be cool).

    • Sam J.

      “Why is it that, when an innocent black man gets shot by a cop, nothing happens yet, when it’s a thug getting his deserts, there are riots? Why?”

      • Jason Y

        I don’t know if it’s so much the Jews as racial politics. We have a lot of angry blacks, possibly because of poverty and jealousy. They don’t want any cops fucking with them.

        Note, also possibly some bad situation happened in the past where psycho white cops attacked an innocent black person, so now if the cops attack any black person, then they get a hateful response from most blacks.

        Jealousy is a stronger motivation than you think. Basically any place that hasn’t got shit, is going to hate places that have something.

        Also, naturally people resent armed police or army on their land no matter where it is. They view it as colonialism. Look how Western Europeans, like the British, are all smart-ass toward Americans, especially GIs. It’s because Europe is a colony of the US, and there isn’t even any poverty in Western Europe, at least as there is an US black ghetto..

        • Jason Y

          So a combo of all this stuff, and finally of course exploited by Jews to push their selfish agenda, seems to be the root of all the violence.

          But in truly integrated areas of the US, you don’t see this stuff going on, only in an unofficially segregated shit-hole, So that’s possibly saying integration is a good thing.

        • Jason Y

          Possibly a root of racial problems is hyper-sensitivity. Often the mistakes caused by psycho cops might take months or years for locals to get over.

          Look on Facebook how people complain about stuff 24/7 and expand it out of proportion. Isn’t that same among blacks? Isn’t that the same among anyone?

          Given this situation, a world where blacks in poverty filled unofficially segregated areas resenting police brutality on any black, even thugs is very easy to understand.

    • Sam J.

      “Why is it that, when an innocent black man gets shot by a cop, nothing happens yet, when it’s a thug getting his deserts, there are riots? Why?”

      This is done on purpose. It’s to inflame Blacks at the same time convince Whites that Blacks are completely irrational mass murderers. You think they didn’t know that George Zimmerman wasn’t White? You think they didn’t doctor the 9-11 calls to make Zimmermann seem to want to premeditatively kill Trayvon? You think they didn’t know about Michael Brown being a thug and hyping him anyway? Who owns and directs these TV networks? Who owns and directs these newpapers? Who owns and directs these magazines? These those people are responsible. Unfortunately for the Whites caught in this race purge and Blacks who are foolishly following the Jews if it comes to a screaming peak the Blacks are going to lose. This has less to do with “racism” than with simple survival. Whites just can’t let Black people keep murdering them no matter what their feelings. Your feelings are irrelevant when you’re pulling random Whites out of their cars and murdering them.

    I love these videos. Here’s probably the best or close anyways.

  10. TRASH

    Ghetto residents generally fear rural life and will not actually enter woodsy suburbs or outlying rural areas. They dislike all things not urban.

    They will not begin burning down the forests around rural areas. Where the city streets end, they stop. So who cares.

    A few former warehouses that are now used as crack houses will burn.

    Really, how many other ethnic groups live in urban centers-some gays who are basically ignored, a few Arabs and Hispanics (Formerly Jews and Italians or Koreans out on the West Coast) shopkeepers.

    If you live in Northern Wisconsin suburbs you do not particularly care. Or Idaho.

    • Jason Y

      True, it means nothing to white people. It only simply serves as justification (for white supremacists) to further claim that NAMs are inferior and in need of extermination, slavery, deportation, or some type of big brother control.

  11. TRASH

    Won’t it be cold in the winter with no buildings to live in? Are the rioters going to actually get in cars and set suburban woods on fire?

    It cannot be a “race riot” if other races do not show up and the days when “Market-dominant minorities” like Koreans having their laundries burned down or Jews having their pawn shops looted are in the past because these businesses are owned by the people who live in the ghetto and those other minorities are gone.

    Since no other group lives in the ghetto nobody is going to show up for the riot.

    Motorists stay on the highway.

  12. TRASH

    Anglos (With the exception of a few Germans) never lived in the urban centers. Italians, Jews, Koreans, Arabs are gone because community leaders insisted business be owned by the predominant group.

    So who is going to be harmed by this? Will the rioters venture out beneath the full moon to rural areas?

    Set forests on fire?

    Who really has any stake to lose?

  13. Tulio

    The black man shot in Milwaukee was shot by a black cop. Which makes this race rioting all the more bizarre.

    This has all been stirred up by the media. When the media focuses on something and starts a narrative, it can lead to a moral panic. Many blacks folks, even ones that have never had any violent encounter with the cops think they are currently under siege. Even if the statistics show that an innocent black man being killed by cops is more rare than being struck by lightening. Or that 95% of blacks die at the hand of other blacks. It doesn’t matter. The news shows it over and over and it whips them into a frenzy that feeds of itself. And then people overreact, and there are race riots, and retaliatory cop killings. And then race relations began a downward spiral. Whites turn on the news and see a blacks tearing setting buildings on fire and shooting cops which makes them more racist. Then blacks see whites becoming more racist and say, “see that, they hate us! Just like we said all along!” Cops who now have to deal the possibility of being shot on the job may be even more inclined to have hair trigger responses with blacks which then feeds into the notion that cops are out to get blacks and then you just have one big clusterfuck spiraling out of control. While I’m not a racist or a racial separatist, the separatists do make good points. If we didn’t share the same nation, we wouldn’t have to worry about intractable race problems. Or the differences in behaviors and perceptions that cause race problems. Dividing up the country into racial territories is never going to happen, but I see why some people would be in favor of it as a solution to race problems and it makes completely sense in a lot of ways. Peace in a multiracial society can be fragile. Everything can be humming along fine and all it takes is for someone to get shot by a cop and all hell lets loose and you see that this pent up resentment was there all along under the shallow skin of a “post-racial” nation(yeah right).

    Also, whites are capable of this moral panic as well. In their case, swap cops for Muslim terrorists. Even though the statistical likelihood of being killed by a Muslim terrorist on any given day is probably even less likely than being innocently murdered by a cop, Americans think they are in constant under siege from terrorists and that terrorism is more prevalent than it actually is in reality. We have a presidential candidate that doesn’t even want Muslims stepping foot on US soil and a large of America that agrees with him. Even though we’re on orders of magnitude more likely to be killed by a home grown mass shooter.

    So to whites, there’s a terrorist hiding behind every tree ready to kill you. To blacks, the nation is full of racist cops that want to shoot you dead over a broken tail light. And it’s not that there aren’t terrorists, or that there aren’t cops with an itchy trigger finger and racial biases. It’s that these scenarios are wildly exaggerated by the media and 99.9% of the Muslims living in America aren’t bothering anyone. And 99.9% of cops will never shoot an unarmed man that isn’t threatening anyone. But the news will keep harping on the .01% exceptions and brainwash people into thinking it’s the norm by running a narrative. And most people are too dumbed down and gullible to question it.

      This place is becoming tornado whirwind hell-hole of hate fed by the media, and with Trump coming in, it should increase 1000 percent.

      You’re missing the bigger picture. The internet has exposed all Americans to the crime, corruption and lies our government has been spewing for centuries and people are F_CKING P_ISSED OFF about it.

      It explains Donald Trump, Elizabeth Warren, Ron Paul and Bernie Sanders…a revolution is coming whether the aristocracy and politicians, media and world see it; American is on the brink.

      I am ready for it….

      It is way past time to blood, riots and destruction to resurrect the freedom we deserve and won in 1776. Could you not see this in the Bundy standoff when the government bucked? It’s boiling point on all fronts. I can tell you straight Caucasians are preparing for Civil War. It don’t matter what level of society they are at all of them are gearing up for war against the government.

      We are living in dangerous times…

      • Jason Y

        Time to get out of the US cause the war isn’t my war. I’m totally against the white nationalists wanting this war. I have nothing to gain from the war, because I disagree most of the stuff WNs say.

        Taking the other side won’t help either, cause I’m against the globalists who would oppose it also.

        but the problem, is that even not counting Jews, Straight White males still hold a healthy, if not disproportionate amount of influence in wealth and Government.

      • Tulio

        We have a fundamentally different view of the world. Compared with any time in history we are more free, less corrupt, more fair than ever before. Believe it or not, there are fewer wars not less. Crime has declined to about half what it was in the 90s. Things like travel are available to people even of modest means when in the past it was a luxury for the wealthy. We have longer lifespans, suffer from few diseases, there is less starvation. The world is becoming a better place. Large scale wars for the most part have been eliminated from everywhere except the Middle East and Africa which lag behind. War is a thing of the past in the Americans. There will be no more international wars in the Western Hemisphere. European nations will not go war against each other, those days are over. N. Korea is the only threat in E. Asia and they are pretty much contained.

        Sorry I don’t see the world as going to hell in a handbasket.

          If the world is going to hell in a handbasket, I think a lot of it is a self fulfilling prophecy largely helped along by people who think the world is going to hell in a handbasket. Think about it: If this is your belief, you’re going to be less helpful, more cynical, more likely to resort to violence and other counterproductive behaviors yourself, less likely to take any action at all to make things better, more passive, and so on. For perhaps the first time in human history, a lot of the responsibility rests with us, and I think people can’t handle that.

          I wish I could believe the world isn’t going to hell in a handbasket, but so many things say it is.

    I remember living through Baltimore in 2015. Most of my mom’s family has migrated there. It was terrifying.

    When people are THIS PISSED OFF, the way to go is not to escalate any more.
    “Space to destroy” ultimately “saved space” from the rioters.

    You don’t try to fuck with pissed off people, because they get more pissed off.
    The Media does not seem to understand this!
    With both Blacks and the White Working class!

      The problem is when you have Populist groups made at each other, there’s really going to be an inevitable conflict.

        Right so you see it whether or not it feels like a clear and present danger to you and yours.

        Then you have no excuse when it starts and your family is killed; you did nothing to assuage the anger felt by all sides.

        What Jesus do?

        What would Ben Franklin do?

        Abe Lincoln?
