Thanks to George Floyd and Black Lives Matter (BLM), it is now a serious “crime” to pump gas after curfew in Minneapolis.
Mayor Jacob Frey, who says “white nationalists” are responsible for Floyd’s death, imposed the curfew after the death of Daunte Wright, another black man, at the hands of police officers.
Two women who were caught pumping gas after dark in Minneapolis learned the hard way that when a government official orders you to do something, you do it obediently and unquestioningly – even if the order is against the law.
According to reports, the two women were filling up their car when heavily armed goons from the military and local police department swarmed the vehicle and ordered the women to get down on the ground.
With rifles pointed at their heads, the SWAT-like band of government thugs terrorized the two women, one of whom was wearing yoga pants. Neither of the women was armed or constituted any kind of threat.
“The scene was akin to a raid on the Taliban in Kabul but happened in Minneapolis, and instead of the Taliban, it was innocent women in yoga pants,” writes Matt Agorist for SHTFplan.com.
On Twitter, many expressed similar sentiments about the gross abuse of power on display that night. In what parallel universe is harassing and terrorizing innocent women going about their business acceptable in a country that claims to hinge upon freedom and liberty?
“Whoever ordered this idiocy shld be unceremoniously & summarily removed from office,” one person wrote. “Arresting ppl at a MN gas station – pointing military grade assault rifles in their faces – is just outrageous. No elected official shld ever get away w this.”
“When there is widespread civil unrest, a state basically has 2 options: 1 – make a few concessions to public demands, or 2 – use tyrannical force to quell the unrest,” wrote another. “And it’s quite obvious the direction our ruling class wants to go as public anger and despair continues to grow.”
Militarization of police and growing martial law is a bipartisan affair
Both political parties are guilty of bringing us to this point, by the way. Blaming Joe Biden or Donald Trump completely misses the point as police state tyranny has been burgeoning under the rule of both Democrats and Republicans for many decades.
“It was here long before Trump and began ramping up under George W. Bush during antiwar protests and came to a head under Obama during the Ferguson unrest,” Agorist explains.
Because this most recent incident in Minneapolis occurred under Biden as opposed to Trump, however, the heavily politicized mainstream media did not even pick up the story. This is noteworthy as there is still an agenda at play that seeks to either ignore or glamorize the police state under Democrats while amplifying its horrors under Republicans.
“This is the ‘return to normalcy’ people were wanting,” someone on Twitter pointed out.
“Because last year … what’s happening in Minnesota, Portland, and Chicago right now would be on every news station and would be the top topics on Twitter. But now that the orange man is gone … we can talk about cats again.”
Had this incident in Minneapolis occurred under Trump, it would have been broadcast nonstop for days on end as a means of vilification. However, because Biden is occupying the White House, the media is completely silent.
“They allowed mass burning, looting, and senseless destruction repeatedly with almost zero police intervention” last year, pointed out one SHTFplan.com commenter about the hypocrisy of how this latest incident was handled. “Bravo, Minneapolis.”

One Sick Day Proves We Need More Voices in Truthful Media
On October 19, I was sick. It crossed my mind that I had finally gotten the ‘rona, but my wife’s cream of chicken soup and a few extra hours of sleep into mid-afternoon had be back up and running after a sleepless night before.
When I finally stumbled over to my computer in the evening, I was met with a deluge of concern from readers. They asked what had happened as only one article had been posted that day. Generally, we post between 10-20 daily between all of the sites, not included curated and aggregated content. Seeing that we’d only posted my super-early morning article before taking the rest of the day off had readers assuming the worst.
We have a wonderful and talented group of writers who volunteer their time for the sites and their readers. Sharing their amazing perspectives has always been a blessing to us because we cannot afford to hire anyone at this time. But having great writers is meaningless if we don’t have great editors, or at least one additional. My wife helps me read and edit stories from time to time, but I’m a one-man show when it comes to getting the stories posted.
Whenever I highlight our desperate need for donations, I note that we do not receive money from Google ads even though most in conservative media are beholden. I often ambiguously note that the money donated will help us grow. Today, I’m highlighting a specific need. We must get an editor to help take some of the load and to expand on our mission of spreading the truth to the world. One sick day proved that.
The great news is that there is no shortage of people who CAN help. I am emailed variations of resumes every week by people who are much smarter than I am. As much as I’d love to hire some of them, we simply cannot. That takes money and as blessed as we’ve been to receive donations and collect ad money (though not from Google or Facebook), we have still fallen short.
Those who have the means, PLEASE consider donating. We have the standard Giving Fuel option and people can donate through PayPal. We are also diving into what we believe is extremely disruptive technology at LetsGo.finance, the world’s first major donation portal for crypto. I’ll be talking a lot more about them in the near future. Those who prefer Bitcoin can send to my address here: 3A1ELVhGgrwrypwTJhPwnaTVGmuqyQrMB8
We can get the voices out there and we’re willing to shine a spotlight on new talent. We just need the resources to make it happen. If you can help, we would be extremely grateful.
Thank you and God bless!
