You may not hear this on cable: Eric Adams is Brooklyn borough president. Before that, he spent 22 years in the NYPD.
In this interview with New York magazine, he describes who you're currently seeing each night in scenes from Gotham's streets:
ADAMS (6/1/20): We’re at a unique place, and many people don’t understand: The righteous protesters who deal with police abuse—what’s different now is that we have professional agitators, and their goal is not police abuse but to burn our cities. And that’s why you see fire-bombings—the people who are doing the Molotov cocktails. These are professionals who know how to do incendiary devices. They carry bags of rocks and stones so they can resupply agitators. We found a vehicle on Eastern Parkway in Crown Heights that had incendiary devices, a trunkful of gasoline. New York may not realize it, but they’ve never been here before. I’ve been speaking with some of the organizers and telling them they have to identify the people who are from outside the city that are here to hijack their movement, to destroy and harm the city.Last night, someone on cable defined the three groups now in the streets. Those three groups are these:
The protestersIn the passage posted above, Adams is discussing the second group. We can't tell you much about any of this, and some of our stars seem to be trying to keep our tribe from breaking through the Pabulum Curtain.
On CNN and MSNBC, you're being deluged with propaganda which says that the looters are only stealing all that stuff because they're so hurt and upset. When others see our tribunes saying such things, they line up to vote against whoever our tribe prefers.
That interview with Adams is well worth reading. In our view, Cuomo and Lemon spent hours last night turning our brains to mush.
More on the agitators: The next exchange reads like this:
NEW YORK MAGAZINE: So are those people sympathetic to the cause or are they alt-right people, or something else?Adams is Brooklyn borough president. There's every chance that he knows whereof he speaks. Or you can listen to Lemon as he flogs his disappointment with his know-nothing Hollywood friends.
ADAMS: No, they’re—I think it’s an interesting combination, with similar goals at opposite ends of the spectrum. There are far-right people who want to see a race riot between cops and young blacks, and they’re doing everything they can to aggravate that, throwing stones, throwing liquid substances that burn the skin. And then there are these sorta anarchists who are saying We want to destroy government, because government has been unfair, as they see it, to the poor. You have this mixture that’s really infiltrated these organizations.
