The transparency of the fraud being perpetrated on Americans by the Black Lives Matter political movement is clear to see for those who care to look, which excludes the complicit liberal media running cover for it.
Portland is currently ground zero for the movement, and the radical anarchists and far-left revolutionaries in the street may be interested in little more than destruction for the sake of destruction, there’s a more organized force in place that understands the importance of driving the media narrative.
Not that former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino is willing to play along.
The chaos in the street is all but sanctioned by the Democratic Party and their media allies, who have their eyes set on November and think the unrest works in their favor. But they’re not the only one’s running interference for the mob.
There was an effort dubbed “Wall of Moms,” that led to a “Wall of Dads,” and then to a “Wall of Vets,” who try to present a clean face to the riots in the street, even as violent thugs set about attacking federal agents and trying to burn down a federal courthouse.
While the media loves the political theater represented by the various “walls,” which may be little more than the same activists changing t-shirts, it was the “Wall of Vets” that Bongino took issue with.
“Being a veteran, or claiming to be a veteran, doesn’t absolve you of the responsibility you bear for supporting a racist, fascist group such as ANTIFA. You will be treated NO differently for supporting a group of racist terrorists,” the former Secret Service agent tweeted, in response to a New York Times reporter’s effort to legitimize the maneuver.

In fact, Bongino felt so strongly about this that he doubled down, accusing any vet of aligning with the movement as being of the same violent disposition.
What is not being reported is that some participants in the so-called “walls” are also engaging in violence.

Those "moms" are linking arms with Antifa. Welcome to the Yellow Bloc.

There are also accounts from conservative journalist Andy Ngo of some people simply changing their shirts “for optic,” before changing back to traditional black bloc Antifa attire.
I recognize a lot of the so-called “moms” as the same antifa women who dressed in black as recent as a couple days ago. They just put on a yellow shirt now for optics. Most of these people aren’t mothers & many don’t even identify as female. #PortlandRiots pic.twitter.com/UPffcao0fv

In some cases, Antifa thugs are wearing clothing identifying themselves as press, not that you will find much about this in the media.
PPB has seen a number of people purporting to be “media” or “press” who are not in recent weeks. This is concerning and takes away from legitimate media efforts. https://t.co/mAfxHwyASj

The narrative being pursued by the media is to establish that the people are aligned against the Trump administration and its efforts to maintain law and order — those seeking to stop the violent rioting being cast as fascists, of course.
Along with pop culture and institutions of higher education, the media has been very been successful in persuading Gen Z lemmings to engage as foot soldiers, which helps explain why most Black Lives Matter protests consist of more white liberals than black Americans.
More importantly, they have managed to persuade weak-kneed corporate America to kowtow to the movement.
But informed Americans, black or white, are proving to be a harder target.
Men like Derek Knighton, a black man who posted a video on Tik Tok that has since gone viral.
While the language is coarse, very coarse, Knighton blasts young blacks taking to the streets in support of Black Lives Matter.
***Warning: VERY STRONG ADULT language
“See, I don’t need to go out in the street with a sign screaming this sh*t, like a f*cking idiot, and throwing a temper tantrum like a damn child,” he said.
Knighton blows the left’s narrative completely out of the water when he explained that he is not even remotely worried about being killed by a police officer.
“You know why?” he asked, before encouraging viewers to come closer. “Because I’m not a f*cking criminal and I don’t go around committing f*cking crime.
He went on to explain that when he does interact with police, he doesn’t “fight the cops and resist arrest.”
“Nobody cares about your f*cking skin color, nobody gives a damn about your brown skin,” Knighton said in conclusion. “It’s your f*cked up, shitty behavior is why people don’t like you. That’s why I don’t like you!”
Here’s a quick sampling of responses to Bongino from Twitter:
We all know, & Andy Ngo confirmed it, that these are the same blm terrorists that have been there all along. They are “dressing up” as vets, moms & dads into order to gaslight Americans into thinking middle America supports them. We don’t & we see the truth!

These probably aren’t veterans, just like the “moms” aren’t moms, or even women in some cases…
— Sam Flynn (@IM_IN_LIKE_FLYN) July 26, 2020
I fail to believe these are Vets! Most Vets are Patriots instead of instigators!!

Being a veteran doesn’t make you somehow infallible and always right, anymore than being a mother does.
Actions, merit, character—these are what matter. And regardless of what label the left puts on a person, if they support the socialist mob they are sadly lacking in the last.

Fake vets, fake moms. They’re all paid to do this.
— 🇺🇸 45 ⭐️⭐️⭐️ (@Qreat_Awakening) July 26, 2020
Its the Wall of Shame….alleged vets, alleged moms….They are all the same and need to go home…you had your time to protest. Now its just destruction.
— EJG (@EJGSH) July 26, 2020
There’s are not verterans imo, many are thin kids with no muscle mass, no meat on their bones, some of those moms are not real moms; same as those Antifa thugs are wearing PRESS clothing/signs when they’re not real journalists. This is all a farce
