Lawful black business owners in Minnesota take up arms to protect what they work hard for

The chaos that has ensued on the streets of Minneapolis follows a familiar script, to include little media curiosity about the very real likelihood of professional instigators being brought in from outside the area to sow seeds of destruction.

A script that includes those allegedly outraged hurting their own communities with their lawless behavior, robbing their neighbors of jobs and businesses.

In that regard, a video depicting armed black Americans standing outside businesses they have spent their whole lives building made the rounds online Thursday. A video that smashes a left-wing talking point about how white gun owners get preferential treatment from police, who are allegedly eager to attack people of color.

Hoping to protect their black-owned businesses from the ensuing mob, a number of lawfully armed men are seen standing outside in the video. Unmolested.

And not only that, but cheered on by those who stand up for the Second Amendment, as seen above by former NRA spokesperson Dana Loesch.

There were other incidents where armed citizens, black and white, stood together to protect businesses.

The violence being seen in Minnesota has been largely aided and abetted by the liberal media, race mongers on the left, and even celebrities and sports figures, with all of the above running with emotion following the death of George Floyd, inciting an already agitated population who had the entire nation in their corner — until they began to destroy.

Add to the mix ever-familiar black-clad agitators who always seem to show up in our worst moments, and the end result is the City of Minneapolis in flames and the police being forced to abandoned precincts, as the nation shamelessly saw Thursday night.

With Ferguson and Baltimore as backdrops, America has seen this movie before — although, in today’s social media ignorance, there was an attempt to characterize the Antifa-looking man as an “undercover cop.”

And there appeared to be other organizers in the crowd.

*Caution: Strong Language

Thursday night was a predictable occurrence, given the inaction from police the night before as looters casually emptied a Target and burned several businesses, to include an AutoZone store.

Those hurt the worst left to tears, as seen in the video below depicting a black man, as he cries over the loss of his business.

“I worked so hard to get here,” he said, tears streaming down his face. “So hard.”

Lost in the mix in Minneapolis is that there will be times when Americans cannot depend on police to be there. When forced to abandon their precincts, law-abiding citizens are left to their own devices to protect themselves from the criminal thugs.

The Second Amendment is the only assurance Americans have to be able to do so.
