(1) Preface: Our condemnation of the killing of George Floyd, and our hope for responsible corrective governmental action

On May 25, 2020, George Floyd, an unarmed black man, was stopped by police in Minneapolis, MN because he allegedly attempted to use counterfeit money, and appeared intoxicated.

Videos show that Mr. Floyd did not resist the arrest — yet he was brutally killed by a white police officer who held him down, with a knee to his neck for almost nine minutes, as he desperately pleaded, “I can’t breathe.”

The video of Mr. Floyd’s senseless killing went viral, and huge protests broke out shortly afterwards in numerous cites by outraged citizens. Initially, the protests were peaceful, They were depicted by participants as a reaction not just to the murder of Mr. Floyd, but also, to allegations of American police officers using excessive, unjustified violence against alleged criminals — especially black people — for many years.

We at SaveTheWest are outraged by Mr. Floyd’s murder, and hope that the police officers who have been charged — Derek Chauvin, Thomas Lane, Tou Thao and J. Alexander Kueng — all receive fair trials, and if found guilty, will receive severe sentences.

(2) What began as Constitutionally-protected demonstrations almost instantly morphed into violent seditious anarchy

The First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution declares:

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

During the first few days of the national horror at the video of Mr. Floyd’s murder, people organized and participated in peaceful rallies in their communities, that focused on demanding that the Minneapolis and federal government do two things:

(1) Launch a criminal investigation of the police officers who killed Mr. Floyd, or stood by while their fellow officers killed him — and if justified, try and convict them

(2) Investigations into allegations of police brutality across America, particularly against black people — and if justified, enact reforms that will correct these abuses

Americans from across the racial, political and economic spectrum, from celebrities to laborers, politicians to media figures, shared many of the peaceful demonstrators’ concerns, and expressed this unity on social media.

Within two days, however, of the first reports of Mr. Floyd’s murder, these peaceful protests were transformed into violent anarchy, that:

  • Quickly spread across America
  • Then, quickly spread throughout the Western world

Mr. Floyd was killed on the evening of May 25.  The first reports and videos of what happened emerged on May 26.

By May 28, however — barely 48 hours later — evidence began emerging of dozens of acts of violent anarchy being perpetrated in cities across America, and in the coming hours, the number of locations in which this was occurring skyrocketed:

  • May 28: Violent anarchists* began looting and torching businesses throughout Minneapolis (*whom local and national news organs called “protesters,” instead of rioters):

  • May 31: A Chicago alderman recorded a call with Mayor Lightfoot, in which he complained about the violent anarchists that were taking over the city, and told her, “My ward is a s**t show… they are shooting at the police!!!” Another alderman asked Lightfoot, “How [are] seniors and vulnerable populations were supposed to get medicine and food if “every CVS, every Walgreens is shutting down?” Still another asked her, “How do businesses recover and why would they want to recover in our community?” Then, Lightfoot acknowledged Chicago is facing a “massive, massive problem,” and said the violent anarchists “as just f***ing lawless right now.”

From then on, with each passing day, in large and small cities across America, entire commercial districts were burned to the ground — including hundreds of minority-owned businesses. One notable example was black Minneapolis firefighter Korboi “KB” Balla, who worked and saved his whole life to create a sports-themed bar and restaurant, which the violent anarchists looted and torched:

Within four days, however, a GoFundMe campaign to raise donations to help Mr. Balla rebuild had raised more than $1 million, from people across America.

Another black man, Billy Ray Todd, publicly decried the destruction of black businesses in Minneapolis:

Soon after the violent anarchy against police officers and private businesses took hold in dozens of American cities, on May 28-29, hours after it emerged in Minneapolis, those perpetrating it began murdering and attacking anyone who stood up to, or whom they believed opposed them.

There are innumerable, often extremely graphic videos available on YouTube and social media that validate this claim. Below is one from New York City, after violent anarchists attempted to loot a Foot Locker, then beat up an unarmed volunteer security guard so severely he was blinded in one eye (note how the local news organ refers to this incident, and similar attacks across America, on screen, as “unrest”):

And the attacks on police officers — for doing their jobs — are skyrocketing too, not just in numbers, but in the variety of locations around America. Here is one example, from Miami, FL:

(3) Local, state & federal government officials from across the political spectrum say there are clear indications that the violent anarchy engulfing American cities is highly-organized and coordinated

A notably diverse array of government officials now claim there are strong indications that the violent anarchy engulfing our cities did not go from zero, on May 26, to where it is today. Rather, they claim that there was some force (or multiple forces) that have been inciting, coordinating, supporting and possibly even funding the violent anarchy.

Here is a small sampling of these officials’ statements, and where possible, the evidence upon which they base their speculation:

May 29: Former NYPD Commissioner Bernard Kerik, a conservative, said the following during a radio interview:

“Riots and protests across multiple metropolitan cities are coordinated. […]

I think the FBI has to investigate, especially this time, [when] you have enormous coordination between what’s going on in Minneapolis, then L.A., Houston, Atlanta. There’s a bunch of coordination going on.

I would say 10 to 15 percent of the people in Minneapolis that started protesting were from Minneapolis. Eighty to 85 percent of the people there were bused in. They came from somewhere else, and out of that group, you have a core group in a leadership role.

These aren’t protesters. These people are paid radical left-wing anarchists that come to instigate and engage in extreme violence, arson, and looting.

When you look at some of these people that were in Minneapolis last night, for example, some of the leaders in the group were young white men all dressed up in black with military-grade radio communications, who were central command posts with earpieces.

Look around the country. [In] every one of the cities we’re talking about, you’re seeing the same exact thing. […]

When are we going to treat these people as [the] domestic terrorists they are? Because that’s what they are. This is terrorism. This isn’t civil disobedience.

May 31: Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot, a far-left Democrat:

“There is no doubt. This was an organized effort last night. There were clearly efforts to subvert the peaceful process and make it into something violent.”

“There’s no question that both the people who were fighting who brought the weapons that was absolutely organized and choreographed. It seems also clear that the fires that were set both the vehicles and buildings… that that was organized. That wasn’t opportunistic. Somebody driving up with a U-Haul, having crews jump out, breaking the windows going in and literally hauling out the merchandise in coordination… car caravans doing a similar thing, people jumping out using a metal device to pop the window, jumping into the stores and then loading up the cars on like an assembly line.”

May 31: According to Richmond (VA) Police Chief Will Smith, political affiliation unknown:

‘We have people from across the country who have traveled many states to be here. We know that this is an organized effort. We’re committed to try and identify those that are behind it. And we’re doing our very level best to arrest those that are perpetrating the violence on our community, our city, and against our citizens.”

“We do have anti-fascists, we have some anarchists, to a large degree… When you look at the things that they’re targeting… I think we can all understand attacking the symbols of the past and of the racist past. But when you look at trying to burn down a VCU dormitory, or burn down people’s homes, or burn down and loot the stores that we depend on every day. Those things don’t correlate at all. So, you know, I think there is a much more organized effort, and we’re doing our very best to determine where that’s coming from and who’s pulling the strings.”

May 31: Former NYPD Commissioner Bernard Kerik, a conservative, Tweeted:

June 1: Via the Wall St. Journal:

New York Police Department investigators said Sunday they believe outside anarchist groups coordinated efforts to incite violence at the city’s weekend protests, citing communications between members on social media and encrypted platforms.

“We’re seeing a lot of outside and independent agitators connected with anarchist groups who are deliberately trying to provoke acts of violence,” said NYPD Deputy Commissioner of Intelligence and Counterterrorism John Miller. […]

Minneapolis Public Safety Commissioner John Harrington said Sunday evening that police found caches of flammables and incendiaries, some planted days ago and some in the last 24 hours. He said he couldn’t confirm any specific extremist groups were tied to the violence.

June 1: Via Fox Business:

NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea said Monday that the SoHo area of Manhattan “had a significant number of stores broken into” overnight, and the department has seen evidence that organized groups were behind the crimes. […]

“When you see organized people showing up to protest — we had individuals again last night showing up with Molotov cocktails, we had an incident where a police car was shot last night in Queens — when you see incidents like this, turn in a very rapid fashion, there is evidence of an organization at times behind some of these activities.” […]

John Miller, the NYPD’s deputy commissioner for counterterrorism and intelligence [said] “They [organizers] prepared to commit property damage and directed people who were following them that this should be done selectively and only in wealthier areas or at high-end stores run by corporate entities. They instructed group leaders to tell the people following them that this was not meant to be orderly activity.”

(4) How certain members of our “news” media, and federal, state and local governments are aiding and abetting this violent seditious anarchy

(5) The legal provisions pertaining to the violent seditious anarchy we’re witnessing across America



Seditious conspiracy is defined by the U.S. Code as follows:

“If two or more persons in any State or Territory, or in any place subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, conspire to overthrow, put down, or to destroy by force the Government of the United States, or to levy war against them, or to oppose by force the authority thereof, or by force to prevent, hinder, or delay the execution of any law of the United States, or by force to seize, take, or possess any property of the United States contrary to the authority thereof, they shall each be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both.”


“There is only one means to shorten, simplify and concentrate the murderous death throes of the old society and the bloody birth pangs of the new, only one means—revolutionary terrorism.”
– Karl Marx
