Black Lives Matter terrorists burned Police Station in Minneapolis and get full support from a high-level Democrat party official in Minneapolis.
He even applauds the BML terrorist by saying an “act of pure righteousness” in their minds and a “genuine revolutionary moment.”
Devin Hogan, the chair of the Minneapolis Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party is defending a recent op-ed in which he argued that rioters’ burning of the Minneapolis Police Department’s Third Precinct headquarters last year was an “act of pure righteousness” in their minds and a “genuine revolutionary moment.”
Hogan wrote, “At this point the world was paying attention. Friends and family were reaching out. How come words won’t satiate people? Why Minneapolis? The cops started it, I replied. They killed George Floyd and took every opportunity to escalate, agitate and make things worse. The cops are rioting and the people are responding.”
“Like it or not, setting the Third Precinct on fire was a genuine revolutionary moment. An act of pure righteousness to open new worlds of understanding. The people declared themselves ungovernable and unilaterally took their power back. The largest international human rights movement in modern history had begun. The youth of Minneapolis carried all of this. The cops started it,” Hogan continued.
“The call from the streets was genuine liberation, truly and finally. The work continues until that day comes, eyes on the prize. Remember the demand of the streets. The blood and treasure spent. This is our job. Minneapolis must answer the call. For real this time. For real for real. Do it for the kids.” Hogan Added.
Hogan’s column immediately drew backlash and ridicule online from critics who claimed he was fomenting further violence.
And even after facing backlash for his endorsement of violent riots and arson, Hogan was unapologetic.
According to the Washington Examiner:
In a since-deleted Facebook post, the Democrat said the following, “The truth hurts. Accurately describing reality is not a call to arms. Explaining the conditions of violent repression with the reasons why and how people react to that oppression is not condoning violence. Fetishizing decorum over substance is a hallmark of white supremacy. If antiracism offends your sensibilities then please use this moment to examine the role you play in maintaining and upholding these systems. Which side are you on?”
In April, a rioter named Dylan Shakespeare Robinson, 23 was sentenced to four years in prison and $12 million in restitution for the arson.
A statement by Acting U.S. Attorney Anders Folk, whose office prosecuted the case said, “On the night of May 28, 2020, Mr. Robinson chose to depart from lawful protest and instead engaged in violence and destruction, the arson at the Minneapolis Police Department’s Third Precinct put lives at risk and contributed to widespread lawlessness in Minneapolis.”
