MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. — “The intersection in south Minneapolis where George Floyd died in police custody on May 25 has become a quasi-religious shrine. It is a shrine not just to Floyd, who is honored here as if he were a saint or a martyr, but to the Black Lives Matter movement’s political power and the ascendency of the radical left in this city.
The whole intersection has an apocalyptic feel. Firewood is stacked up around the gas pumps for use, I’m told, by the steady stream of “people experiencing homelessness” who often “occupy” the intersection at night. Every smashable window is boarded up, and every board bears some spray-painted curse directed at the police or Trump — and if not a curse, a call for justice in the name of Floyd.
One of the thousands of signs and placards posted about the square reads: ‘Reconnect, this is a place of peace.’ But it is not a place of peace. It is a place of tension and racial resentment and suffocating progressive orthodoxy. It’s the kind of place where you don’t want to be seen asking too many questions. Source: johnlocke.org
Plenty of customers have also stayed away, and business has suffered terribly. An older black man behind the register at Cup Foods tells me it’s been prolonged, partly because there’s no traffic coming through the intersection now and partly because some people are afraid to come. And no wonder: when the Abumayyaleh brothers reopened in August, a mob formed outside demanding they stay closed,” Breitbart reports.
Minneapolis’s dangerous conditions present a focal point for Biden/Harris backers to rekindle their efforts to move the violence to neighboring suburbs and rural areas throughout Minnesota. In short, the Biden/Harris mob is attempting to hold honest and hard-working Minnesotans, hostage. Citizens express fear over putting a Trump sign in their yard because the thugs will retaliate. And they do.
