Four Police Officers Shot In St. Louis Protests, As Trump Stages Ridiculous Bible Photo-Op

Click to see full-size image

On June 1st, 4 St. Louis police officers were shot by protesters, hours after US President Donald Trump vowed to use the U.S. military to halt the spreading clashes.

None of their lives are in danger.

 

Trump, in another step undermining his own authority and further proving he is not the ally of the people, posted at a church, while holding a bible after law enforcement officers used teargas and rubber bullets to clear the way for him to walk there after he made his remarks in the White House Rose Garden.

In his address, Trump said that these were not “acts of peaceful protests” but rather acts of “domestic terror” and threatened that the army would be mobilized to curb the violence.

Separately, rioters set fire to a strip mall in Los Angeles, looted stores in New York City.

Trump has condemned the killing of George Floyd, a 46-year-old African American who died after a white policeman pinned his neck under a knee for nearly nine minutes in Minneapolis on May 25th.

He, however, said that protests shouldn’t be turned into an “angry mob” and that looting and violence would be met with even more severe response.

“Mayors and governors must establish an overwhelming law enforcement presence until the violence has been quelled,” Trump said. “If a city or state refuses to take the actions that are necessary to defend the life and property of their residents, then I will deploy the United States military and quickly solve the problem for them.”

Following the address, Trump walked through an area that had been cleared by police to nearby St. John’s Episcopal Church, where he posed for pictures with his daughter, Ivanka, and U.S. Attorney General William Barr.

It was an absurd charade.

Even the bishop of the Episcopal Church diocese in Washington D. C., Michael Curry criticized Trump for the photo opportunity.

A second autopsy ordered by George Floyd’s family and released on Monday found his death was homicide by “mechanical asphyxiation,” or physical force that interfered with his oxygen supply. The report says three officers contributed to his death.

The Hennepin County Medical Examiner later released autopsy findings that also called Floyd’s death homicide by asphyxiation.

George Floyd’s killer, Derek Chauvin, the 44-year-old Minneapolis police officer who kneeled on Floyd, was arrested on third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter charges. Three other officers involved in the arrest have not been charged.

      • occupybacon

        And how should they fight, if not with guns and planes, with claws and teeth like animals?

      • <>

        Okay shia boy, you said you were from an Asian country so you’re not even part of our region. I suggest you mind your own business, before you adress us.

        • Traiano Welcome

          You’re not part of the region white boy. How about you get out of the middle east?

          Even I suggest you the same thing tell you Zionist scum to stop poking thier shitfill finger in middleeast and asia otherwise they will end up eating thier own shit finger. world is round it will always comes back to its place.

    • Rafik Chauhan

      I pray American people rise up against this Zionist run goverment and police and wipe them out. there is civil war coming . between People and Zionist thugs goverment. and people will take over soon

      • d’Artagnan

        Well, western populations are facing Zionist war criminals who trained the racist police forces. At least the reality is coming home and the Zionist brutality and inhuman tactics can not remain hidden anymore.

    • LR captain

      i don’t see any connection to outsiders in this protests So, why is everyone in the comments blaming the Zionist government for these riots.

      These protest are the results of inequality and racism in the US and where brought to boiling point by Covid these might go on for a month but things will settle down.

      • <>

        You already know that most people here hate us LR, they don’t need an excuse and they will blame Israel anytime they can. Let them, it doesn’t affect us anywy :)

        • LR captain

          in bibi in a orange jumpsuit yet?

          • <>

            It can take up to 2 years, sadly.

      • zman

        That is true for the peaceful protestors. But not for those there to start shit. No, that’s the line the MSM and the government want you to see…’blacks are animals that deserve what they get, because they willingly burn their own city and businesses’. Obstensively because they would rather riot and destroy instead of going through the ‘proper channels’…which is the police…the very ones that create this situation. Is that not the real line on MSM? Yes, the minorities are targeted, but only as a tool to further the divide which is now occurring. They could not care less about anyone, including white, green or purple people. Division is the name of the game and anything they can do to encourage it is good by them. BTW, there are those that have been caught that are not at all local…just as in Washington state, Missouri and Baltimore. This is in a similar vein as the Boston Marathon FF where patsys were killed and convicted for a FF. Outside provocateurs have been caught before (by demonstrators) and let go after being arrested…with no mention in the MSM. What does that say? When martial law is finally achieved, condescending people (of every color) will find out what the real situation is. They’re goy and expendable.

  • Dick Von Dast’Ard

    The way I understood it, Trump more or less declared civil war, threatening the use of military force upon Democrat states that refuse to subdue social justice protests by way of policing brutality.

    This really is power authoritarianism and dictatorship, Trump style.

    State of Emergency next?

    • occupybacon

      Kind of, agree lol. Or he just want to trigger more riots and arguing with that. If so, he’s doing a pretty good job.

    • Porc Halal

      So, to be clear…the far-left led anarchy is the solution for you and the best path forward for America, isn’t it?!…the racist violent acts towards inocent white people which are going on right now instrumented and led by the BLM and ANTIFA thugs are…ok?!…

      • javier

        are you that stupid that you buy the mainstream antifa did it bullshit? or that it’s just stupid black people rioting? if so you are just another ridiculous self absorbed moron. They have the cia explosives expert seen training the ukranians against the donbass locked up in a minneapolis jail.

        • Porc Halal

          Hey dumbfuck, I don’t spend time and energy dealing w/ stupid people…

          • zman

            Then STFU and quit talking to yourself.

        • Ishyrion Av

          actually he is right, antifa was raised for the day when civil war is suppose to start in America
          but antifa is not a man, is a government, a deep government, a deep state government!

          • FlorianGeyer

            Antifa is also a George Soros tool.

        • Porc Halal

          Antifa, BLM and others are just straightforward subversive organisations played from the shadow by the global elite, which is basically of jewish origin…communism is actualy a variant of judaism ..

      • Dick Von Dast’Ard

        That far-left anarchy is most likely the doings of the CIA.

        • Ishyrion Av

          CIA is involved in the events, as a part of the far-left anarchy.

      • zman

        Far left? What F’ing world are you in? Take a look at those running the
        CIA…neocons. Look at Trumps PompAss…ex-CIA director, Bush 1
        ex-CIA…The provocateurs are not far left, they’re far right…as in
        Colombian death squads that are slaughtering the ‘far left’ FARC…under
        the direction of the CIA drug system. Those provocateurs that have been
        caught before were cops…and not a thing was done to them. The ‘left’
        in America is the rights excuse for anarchy. Next you’ll be calling them
        commies.Those innocent white people that were caught starting fires and looting? Are those the innocent white people you mean? Is it the ‘far left’ that is killing Syrians, Palestinians and sanctioning half the world and starving people in the name of ‘freedom’. Neocons are from the time of Nixxon..just look at who was in his cabinet. The same usual suspects.

        • Ishyrion Av

          You obviously have a problem understanding left and right in politics. Even if now the borders are blurry, you don’t have an excuse, you need to see the facts and the reasons. Facts are Trump is ”pro-life”, “nationalist” and “conservative”, which makes him RIGHT, opposite with, let’s say Obama who is “pro-choice”(=abortionist, unborn baby killer), “globalist” and “liberal”, which makes him LEFT.
          Pompeo is from another movie, he is there because deep state put him there and he is a “neocon”. A neocon is a GLOBALLY LEFTIST, who wants to control and enslave entire humanity. But, in his flock, Pompeo is merely an executor, not a decision maker.
          Syria and whole Middle East is an Israel problem (Greater Israel), and since Israel is Trump’s only ally in US, Trump has no other choice but to agree with Israel in this matter.
          And, in the end, nobody said white people doesn’t steal or murder. They do. But statistically, in US, 80% of the crimes are made by blacks, a minority of 20-30% of population.
          Numbers tell everything.
          Including the fact you are brainwashed.

          • zman

            Yet more total bullshit and divisionism. You expose yourself as the perfect vehicle for spreading such horseshit. The same horseshit Americans are fed daily by the Zionist MSM. You I would not say are brainwashed, I’d say you’re well paid. Just another righteous Zionist scum…the same ones that revel in usury, politician buying, pedophilia, human trafficking, organ stealing, slaughtering of women, children and old men, land and resource theft world-wide. But I did have to laugh when you call neocons (Cheney, Rumsfeld, PompAss, and Barr) ‘leftist’. That is gold. Fucked up, but gold.

          • Ishyrion Av

            Beyond the words, you see… letters.
            You’ve learned the word “neocon” but you didn’t learned that they should be called “neocom” instead. From neo-communism.
            You really need to learn some history before you open your mouth.

          • zman

            Just more bullshit.

        • FlorianGeyer

          Neo Cons and Neo Liberals are just factions of the same ‘ idiotology ‘ in my opinion.

          • zman

            Yep, just another version of good cop, bad cop. This moron Ish Av shows the value of L/R factionism. Some people are just too blind or stupid to know or see it. Then again, there are those whose job it is to promote it. I dare say he is one of them.

    • javier

      they put in these nightly curfews on top of the 2 month stay at home orders so yes state of emergency would not surprise

    • Ishyrion Av

      These are not “social justice protests”, they are extreme-left anarchists, that kind who started the Bolshevik revolution in Russia. And yes, like any revolution, left behind millions of massacred people.

      • zman

        What a true Fing moron. You need to get away from Faux news, it’s rotted you brain…if you ever had on. Those sick ass MFs that are doing this rely on idiots like you to spread their poison.

        • Ishyrion Av

          You need to update with history. But I bet your education is not finished yet. So you still have a chance.

  • Dick Von Dast’Ard

    MOSCOW, June 1. /TASS/. Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova has described the situation with ongoing mass protests and riots in the United States as an “American tragedy,” which has revealed all of Washington’s problems in the area of human rights.

    “It looks like a curtain has been drawn back to reveal the entire picture the United States has been seeking to hide from people,” she said in an interview with the Vecher (Evening) with Vladimir Solovyov program on the Rossiya-1 television channel. “They knew what was going on in the country, they knew about the contradictions and gaps but spared no effort to picture the situation in a different way. And continued to teach all others, imposing sanctions under the pretext of defending human rights.”

    This said, Moscow is not gloating over the situation in the United States, she stressed. “There is understanding that we are now witnessing an American tragedy of today,” Zakharova noted. “But how can we speak about the United States’ leadership in this area after what we have seen? After police violence, public opinion manipulations via the mass media, exchange of accusations. There can be no questions to others from the United States for years after such turmoil.”

    • occupybacon

      I bet Rice or some other woke will find this as a prove of Kremlin involvement in the riots

      • Xoli Xoli

        Rice Susan and her mom regards them as white and are very racist towards blacks.

    • zman

      She is wrong in her last sentence, as these vermin have no qualms about continuing their manipulations. Just look at Germany and now Austria declaring Hezbollah to be a terrorist organization…business as usual. All as the US continues our own color revolution FF. They have no morals whatsoever. Almost reminds one of the way Israel treats Palestinians. The only difference is that the Palestinians are being used as fodder and they know it…but American citizens , mostly have no clue.

    • Hasbara Hunter

      Riots will be everywhere in the West pretty soon…The Elites are goin’ down…The final Death Throes of an Empire…

  • Zionism = EVIL

    Zionist police cowardly tactics will cause a civil war in the Americunt shithole. Historically Jews have done more damage to western societies than others as they have infiltrated them. The Zionist agenda is a global police state and brutality, but now they want to kill westerners, so their will be massive backlash against Jew cunts, just watch.

    • occupybacon

      I wouldn’t put my money on that lol

      • javier

        yea backlash no, people are too stupid to realize who is behind all this

        • occupybacon

          Who cares when i found a free iphone, right?

        • zman

          You are unfortunately right.

    • Liberal guy

      They are trapped into their own trap

    • zman

      What do you expect from a government run by Zionists? Of course the backlash is to promote even more pro-Zionist restrictions, more laws infringing rights…and all in the name of liberty and freedom. Ain’t that a sick Fing joke?

  • World_Eye

    Really 4 bigs dead, oh plz keep them coming those are not police officers those are blackwater mercenaries acting as police, all that so-called police is fully militarized for what, for whom, against whom is needed that much force and weaponry Nasty evil NEOCONS

  • Ivanus59

    Look at his posture and his idiotic self-righteous expressions! Lmao he is like a cheap copy of Benito Mussolini (just with half the functioning brain cells of Benito, a lame wannabe, property of the zionist lobby)!

    TRUMP: I swore an oath to uphold the laws of our Nation”
    Hahahahahahahahahahaahahahhhhaaaaaaahhhhh
    You swore on oath, when you came to office you nasty wife bitch was holding the DEVIL’s BIBLE in her hands, cuz all that you do brings chaos LOL man, since you came on President of USA you start to fuck the world. Unbelievable LOL. You calling the people THUGS, RACISTS, TERRORISTS and you will defend the people, from whom? Have you asked your people does it need to be defended Especially from your administration. STOP TRUMP STOP> well this year you are going out of that BLACK HOUSE, the US need fresh new people to think and make the country GOOD and Prosperus, no Great Again and to ask for 1 trilion of dollars for defense expenditures. Nasty.

  • RichardD

    The laws allowing unnecessary police killings of the citizenry need to be changed to outlaw it like many other countries have done.

  • d’Artagnan

    American people are now the targets of Zionist brutality. The US police force of racist murderous cowardly thugs is trained by the Zionists.

  • Nazi police forces are literally genociding gentle giants, joggers and birdwatchers, that is why the brave antifa youth are showering them with bricks and bullets of peace.

    • guest

      Why do you think the Zionists want Antifascist movements banned? Zionism is worst form of oppression now globally.

      • Antifa is about as welcome as a fart in a space-suit, because of their wanton destruction, intimidation, and assaults against anyone who is to the right of Marx and Mao.

        If zionists like Trump want to wage war against antifa, it just follows the the rule of a broken clock being correct at least once per day.

        Antifa has reached critical mass at this point, but people of all sorts have been sick and tired of the antifa fussy babies for years now.

  • Kamīrusan

    It’s amazing how there are still people defending this wack job

  • guest

    Trump will destroy America for his Zionist masters.

  • javier

    people near the church were pepper sprayed so the freak could get the photo op from a place he has never been before

    • rightiswrong rightiswrong

      They shot them with rubber bullets, which are not the harmless weapon that rubber sounds like.

      All for Trump to make out he is some kind of tough guy.
      The cowardly bitch dodged military service ffs, he is the last person who should authorise military force against civilian protesters.

      • FlorianGeyer

        Trump also scurried to hide in the bunker under the Whitehouse during the protest. He was protected by hundreds of heavily armed US security goons and was still to cowardly to stand with his staff.

        • rightiswrong rightiswrong

          He stated that he went down there “2 to 3 times, just to take a look around”!

          The inmate is running the asylum, lol.

  • IMHO

    I sure hope South Front isn’t becoming like RT News. This article reeks of left wing liberal bias.

    • zman

      Maybe you prefer the ‘truth’ from the MSM?

      • IMHO

        What does the MSN have to do with my comment?

  • Ishyrion Av

    I assume everyone with a little common sense realize that these events are directed by the same people who want to unify the world below a single government. George Floyd was an anarchist, porno movie star and a bodyguard in the spare time. He was put out from the police car because he started to fight with the policemen in the car. This is what the movie filmed in the car shows. But of course, no many people propagate this part of reality to the social networks. It’s against the purpose.
    Of course killing the man is not justifiable and people guilty of it have to pay. But not all the Americans are guilty. And for sure, not all the police.
    And I’m not a fan of the US or its police and as a matter of fact, of any police which has become the oppressive arm of the oppressive governments.
    But for sure I’m against anarchy at any level: from the top level, created by mental sick people in charge with mass media and political leadership (multiculturalism, sexual revolution, lgbt and other animalic theories) until the lowest level, created by brainless punks, uneducated, violent and ultimately brainwashed.
    There is a movement right now to remove US as the “beacon of democracy” from the minds of the people. I have no problem with that, since US was not any moment any beacon of anything. But be aware that China, which is suppose to replace this “beacon” is a much worse devil.
    Don’t ever think someone wants your good as a human person. If you want to (completely) become a number, to be part of a society 100% electronically monitored and regulated, where government IS the Big Brother who takes care of all your needs, then yes, make a wish Trump will fall.
    But if you have at least a little brain unaffected by the continuous brainwash, then pray America doesn’t fall like this. Even for the sake of the half of the Americans who still embrace the culture of life, instead of the cult of death. And for the sake of your children, no matter where you live.
    And if you are American, take care of your country.
    Don’t trust in “revolutions”, these are bloody events which destroy natural order of the society. Like the French revolution.

    If that was happening in Russia or China CIA News Network -CNN and Pentagoon officials would already on it like flies on cow shit, they would send money, weapons, black ops to generate as much chaos as possible.
    Yet here we are… and what is Russia and China doing?
    They say its bad…, and thats all they do, a slap on the wrist.
    Only shows whom the real agressors are.
    Looting is not okey, beating people up is not okey, but….killing 1200 people a year while having the biggest prison population on the planet,…..lecturing the rest of the World is not okey either.
    U.S. is a dying Empire, but I have a feeling they wont go peacefully, silently into the night like the Soviet-Union, they will be kicking and screaming trying to take the whole planet with them :/

  • It really is like seeing Satan holding up a Bible.

    Trump is not in the least bit religious.

    But he knows a good 25% or more of his support comes from weird Evangelical Americans who /believe in the Second Coming and Noah’s Ark.

    • zman

      Yeah, but he missed out not holding old glory. he could have picked up another 20-30% approval with a good knee-jerk photo like that.

    “..to use the U.S. military to halt the spreading clashes.”

      As soon as the US Military starts shooting civilians armed with banners and stones, the US Hollywood myth of ‘American Military Heros’ will be blown out of the water.
