Aside from black-clad Antifa-like domestic terrorists with backpacks and hammers curiously showing up in cities across America, there’s another odd consistency that centers around bricks.

With the protests over the death of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police devolving into political mayhem, where rioting and looting are the order of the day, a strange phenomenon of random piles of bricks appearing is talked about online.

But it doesn’t stop there.

The Kansas City Police Department took to Twitter to talk about “stashed of bricks.”

“We have learned of & discovered stashes of bricks and rocks in & around the Plaza and Westport to be used during a riot,” KCPD tweeted. If you see anything like this, you can text 911 and let us know so we can remove them. This keeps everyone safe and allows your voice to continue to be heard.”

Hell, even MC Hammer is talking about “free bricks,” warning followers that they are being set up.

“It seems that free bricks are conveniently turning up at most of the protest 🤔💭 Don’t take the bait. It’s a SETUP !!!!” he tweeted.

The question is, who would be setting them up?

The protests over the death of George Floyd have been hijacked by those pushing a political agenda and racial justice taking a backseat to revolution, what we’re seeing is a reflection of the organization strength of the institutional left.

However, even though MC Hammer won’t go quite that far, the race-baiting left will have you believe that white supremacists are randomly dropping pallets of bricks in a clever plot to bait black people into becoming violent.

On the other hand, those on the right suspect it’s the protest organizers strategically placing the bricks to add teeth to their dissention.

Regardless of who may be responsible, the bricks keep showing up.


It all may be just an inconvenient coincidence, as construction of some sort is almost always going on in bustling cities.

At the same time, everyone has a theory. Some even think the cops are behind it!

In the end, social media users are convinced that “they” are behind it, whoever “they” may be.

Here’s a sampling of responses to the story from Twitter:
