2020 Leftwing riots
- See also: 2020 Leftwing insurrection
Left-wing riots rose in Louisville, Kentucky. Racist far-left militants threatened to assault any white people who didn't exit a local church that, out of cowardice, bowed down to the mob. BLM domestic terrorists, who are often unsurprisingly regarded as uneducated and possibly illiterate thugs, torched a public library. A man who shot two police officers amidst far-left riots there was arrested and charged. He apparently had been cowardly, as evidence shows that he used fellow rioters as human shields.
Breonna Taylor shooting
In the Breonna Taylor case, police executed the search warrant by knocking on the door. The warrant listed Breonna Taylor and two men. Both men were under suspicion of trafficking drugs. Taylor’s apartment was being used as part of a trafficking ring. Breonna Taylor and her boyfriend Kenneth Walker refused to answer the door after the police identified themselves. The police broke down the door. Kenneth Walker was armed and shot first at police. Walker used Taylor as a human shield. The police returned fire and Breonna Taylor was shot and killed.
The U-Haul truck captured on video distributing riot gear for Louisville protesters following a grand jury decision in the Breonna Taylor case was reportedly tied to the Louisville Bail Initiative, a left-wing activist group stacked with George Soros Justice Fellows. Almost immediately after the grand-jury announcement, protesters swarmed a U-Haul truck in a parking lot and took out riot gear, weapons, gas masks, and anti-police signs to use during clashes with police. Multiple journalists outed Holly Zoller, a board member of a Louisville Bail Project, as the person who allegedly rented the U-Haul and supplied the riot gear to protesters. Holly Zoller later appeared to confirm that she had rented the U-Haul truck in an undercover phone call published by The Gateway Pundit. A U-Haul employee leaked call logs, showing that it was barraged with complaints about the U-Haul truck supplying riot gear to protesters.
The Bail Project claims to have bailed out 12,096 prisoners to date. Zoller admits to being a supporter or member of Antifa. Two members of the Bail Project are Soros Justice Fellows, an activist group funded by left-wing billionaire George Soros.
Steven Lopez, a Black Lives Matter protester, was arrested for inciting a riot, disorderly conduct, harassment and possession of drug paraphernalia. His citation noted he was in possession of a handgun "with two full mags of ammo" at the time of the arrest. He was released. Ten days later Lopez was arrested again for murder and first-degree wanton endangerment. The murder victim was another Black Lives Matter protester. Lopez fired into an encampment of protesters wanting to defund the police. Bystanders returned fire, wounding the accused killer in the leg. Lopez participated in many protests, which rocked the streets of Louisville for a month. Media accounts referred to the BLM protester as a Hispanic white supremacist.
