Haaland claims President Trump is glorifying police brutality after he calls for end to violent protests

On Friday, socialist Rep. Deb Haaland (D-NM) took to Twitter to bash President Trump after he called for peace in Minneapolis, Minnesota, following violent protests in the street. The demonstrations, which include burning down and looting local businesses, appear to have started in response to claims of police brutality resulting in the death of George Floyd.

President Trump wrote on Twitter Friday morning, “I can’t stand back & watch this happen to a great American City, Minneapolis. A total lack of leadership. Either the very weak Radical Left Mayor, Jacob Frey, get his act together and bring the City under control, or I will send in the National Guard & get the job done right. These THUGS are dishonoring the memory of George Floyd, and I won’t let that happen. Just spoke to Governor Tim Walz and told him that the Military is with him all the way. Any difficulty and we will assume control but, when the looting starts, the shooting starts. Thank you!” 

Twitter later hid the tweet, claiming it was “glorifying violence.” Now, Halland is jumping on the bandwagon to hit Trump for wanting to end the senseless violence from rioters and looters in the streets. On Twitter, she wrote, “This is horrific. A President should never glorify police brutality. To our black community, know that I see you and you can count on me to stand up for justice.”

However, the President did not glorify violence. In reality, he sided with George Floyd and called for an end to the thuggish ravaging of the Minneapolis community. But this is not the first time Haaland has propped up violent protesters hurting people and property.

In August 2019, Haaland called a mob of violent “Antifa” domestic terrorists rioting in Portland, Oregon “peaceful protesters” despite 13 far-left rioters being arrested. During the protests, a young girl was maced while others had hammers thrown at them. 

After Haaland’s statement on Portland, The Republican Party of New Mexico Haaland called her out, with Chairman Steve Pearce writing, “Rep. Deb Haaland’s comments calling Antifa ‘peaceful protestors’ are reprehensible, and our Federal delegation should disavow Haaland’s irresponsible and incorrect statement that goes against our American values.”

  1. Lots of interesting details involved in the unacceptable, tragic death of Floyd. He worked with the cop who is being charged with killing him at a bar previously. Did you know it is policy to use that type of choke hold by that police dept and the city? This is not done in other places, for obvious reasons. Why would a dem city have such policies, if they claim to care so much about the people?

    Police brutality is not about race, and effects everyone and should never be allowed. Grisham expects the state police to threaten violence and commit violence, violate their oaths and force compliance for her unconstitutional, life killing orders, which are not law and unenforceable. She is also encouraging citizens to commit violence against each other. So who promotes violence?

    The sheriffs need to remember they are the highest ranking law enforcement in the county and have jurisdiction and authority over the state police, the governor, and all federal agencies who seek to harm the people they are supposed to protect and serve. They need to immediately arrest anyone who violates their oath per sections 3 and 4 of the 14th amendment.

    Are the riots all organic, or are there also provocateurs involved?
    There is video of a suspicious person in a very expensive gas mask and with a very expensive brand new hammer carrying a black umbrella breaking the windows of the auto zone, spraying “free – — for everyone” with spray paint, then leaving. When confronted by peaceful protesters who tell him to stop, he tries to knock their phone out of their hands and when asked are you a cop says does it matter?

    We know the dems lie, cheat and steal, and commit violence. They are alinsky followers and want death and destruction, no crisis wasted. They said they will do anything to get rid of Trump.

    We have several bad actors in MN. Gretchen, Ilhan, Ellison, and the joke of a mayor who looks like a bad impression of Trudeau, who encourages rioting and violence.
    Dem controlled areas continue to be ranked worst compared to blue areas.
    What does it all mean? Until the people unite, realize they are being played, and demand our Constitutional Republic be restored, and their God given rights protected, not violated, things will continue to get worse.
