91% OF RIOTS LINKED TO BLM

Lord, continue to give our president and other government officials wisdom and discernment. We pray that the fear of the Lord in their lives would cause them to shine as a light to the world.

Putting numbers to what most observers worldwide suspected, the Princeton-affiliated Armed Conflict Location & Event Data Project (ACLED) just released ACLED U.S. Crisis Monitor, revealing that, according to its criteria, 91 percent of riots in the U.S. over the last three months were linked to the Marxist organization Black Lives Matter.

The ACLED website describes its operational parameters as providing “real-time data and analysis on political violence and demonstrations in the United States for the first time, and aims to establish an evidence base from which to identify risks, hotspots, and available resources to empower local communities in times of crisis.”

And, after defining a “riot” as “demonstrations in which any demonstrators engage in violently disruptive or destructive acts (e.g. violence, looting, vandalism, etc.), as well as mob violence in which violent mobs target other individuals, property, businesses, or other groups,”, they also defined BLM demonstrations as:

“…demonstrations that have a local BLM group involved; when the main issue of the demonstration concerns the police killing of a specific Black person (e.g. George Floyd, Breonna Taylor;) when the main issue of the demonstration concerns police brutality against Black people in general; or when the demonstration is in solidarity with the movement in the USA against police brutality against Black people.” . . .

Peter Hasson, an editor with The Daily Caller noted the study, and this salient result:

Forty-nine states, not counting Washington, D.C., experienced riots during that time period, the study found. California led the nation with 86 riots during that time, closely followed by Oregon with 79 riots during that time period, the data show.

It’s important to lay out some more of ACLED’s criteria, particularly regarding violence. According to the group:

“ACLED systematically collects the dates, actors, locations, fatalities, and types of all political violence and demonstration events in the US using a methodology consistent with our global coverage of conflict and disorder around the world. ACLED also collects information on specific, contextually-relevant strategic developments that offer further insight into the political environment; these may be precursors to changes in patterns of political violence and demonstrations.”

And ACLED provides more context regarding police activity it covers:

“ACLED does not record all instances of violence. For example, criminal violence, defined as violence that is motivated by personal or purely criminal motives, is excluded from the ACLED dataset. Some mass shooting events fall into this category. Violence that takes place in the private sphere, such as domestic or interpersonal violence, is also not recorded in the ACLED dataset, even when these events could have wider repercussions among the public. Similarly, events that are categorized as standard police enforcement are excluded from ACLED’s coverage. These typically include incidents where law enforcement agencies appear to have used violence within the bounds of the legal constraints on their activity, either in reaction to an attempt on the life of a police officer or otherwise in the presence of a threat.” . . .

MRCTV’s Brittany Hughes just reported that a new poll appears to indicate that many Americans get it, and they aren’t pleased at all.

“…the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research found that as of this week, only 39 percent of respondents said they approve of Black Lives Matter protests, down from 54 percent back in June. Conversely, the AP found a full 44 percent now say they disapprove of the ‘protests.’”

And, as Paul Joseph Watson notes at Summit News:

“Despite attempts to spin the riots as peaceful protests, more and more Americans aren’t buying it. ‘A majority of U.S. adults (55%) now express at least some support for the movement, down from 67% in June amid nationwide demonstrations sparked by the death of George Floyd,’ reported Pew. ‘The share who say they strongly support the movement stands at 29%, down from 38% three months ago.’”

And Watson cogently observes that such polling data could explain the sudden reversal by prominent Democrats, who now, suddenly, decry the violence they could have – should have – noted in June.  . . .

It’s troubling to know that the pop media coddle these selectively blind Solons.

It’s even more troubling to know that this selective blindness to violence is not reserved to the actions of BLM, but also to those that AntiFA has committed for many years and to those anti-constitutional attacks on our liberties, businesses, and personal lives committed by many of those politicians. Until more Americans stand up for their rights, the violence – through rioting and legislation – will continue.

  1. PRAY THAT THE LORD WILL GIVE US WISDOM OF HOW TO DEAL WITH BLM ANTIFA MAXIST LIBERAL CORRUPT DEMOCRATS LIBERAL MAXIST PROFESSORS, MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD EVIL GOVERNORS MAYORS AND OTHERS. THEIR NEEDS TO BE JUSTICE GODS JUSTICE.

    Amen! 7
  2. The commentary written by Peter Hasson states:
    “The U.S. experienced 637 riots between May 26 and Sept. 12, and 91% of those riots were linked to the Black Lives Matter movement, according to the US Crisis Monitor, ”

    Yet I am having difficulty verifying that claim on ACLED’s website, especially since Mr. Hasson does not directly link where that information is in ACLED’s many articles.

    Are articles such as this verified before posting on IFA or taken at face value? It would seem prudent to have a link that specifically supports the veracity of any headline. Not that I don’t believe it Hasson’s headline, but those on the other side of the fence always challenge statements that are not specifically substantiated with direct links to the information, not just a link to a website with overwhelming amounts of data to sift through. <3

    Amen! 2
  3. Your Word, O God is Truth may you separate us with Your Truth from the ideologies of this world. May the Spirit of Truth begin to flood this nation that we would follow Truth. Jesus said ” all those who seek truth follow me”. May Your Glory fill the earth and may truth reign .

    Amen! 15
  4. Let Us Put on the Armor of God and Stand Strong Against the Wiles of the Devil
    “Do not be afraid…the LORD your God Himself will fight for you” (Deuteronomy 3:22).  
    We face a spiritual enemy who’s real. “Be alert and of a sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour” (1 Peter 5:8). The enemy wants to bring defeat, to steal, kill, and destroy us, but Jesus said, “I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full (John 10:10). God has a plan for our lives. “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future” (Jeremiah 11:29). We have to decide which voice we’re going to listen to, and who we’re going to choose to follow each day. If we don’t make a resolute choice to follow God, we may fall into the evil one’s trap. To help us, God has given us His Word, knowledge of His will, His wisdom to guide us, and the Sword of His Spirit to dismantle the enemy’s plans. He has clothed us in His holy righteousness and covered us in His mighty armor to defeat the forces of evil. We are exhorted to stay alert, pray always, and to stand strong. “Be strong in the Lord and in His mighty power. Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to remain standing. Stand firm therefore, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take up the helmet of salvation (to protect your mind) and the sword of the Spirit which is the word of God. And pray in the Spirit on all occasions, with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints” (Ephesians6:10-18).

    Amen! 20
  5. Heavenly Father, Your Word has much to say about everything. Your Word describes, powers of darkness as, “coming out of night, snarling like vicious dogs, as they prowl the streets.” “Filth comes out of their mouths.” “Their words cut like swords.” “They sneer, they defy You”. They defy law and order, also.

    But, You will “stagger them with Your power”.

    I pray they will not reject the call of the Holy Spirit to repent of their hatred,
    lawlessness, despair. I pray for their eternal salvation, Lord, for You desire all to be saved for eternity.

    Be with those in law enforcement. Protect them from harm and danger. Strengthen them spiritually, physically, mentally emotionally as their life and the life of their families are being put at risk by
    forces of evil. Deliver us from evil, Lord. Bring peace and civility back into our communities.

    Dissolve the intent of those misguided to gain power through anarchy. Dispel the belief that anything good can come from anarchy. Thank You, Lord, for hearing my prayer. In Jesus Name, Amen

    Amen! 26
