Protests Rage: “Fayetteville Street Is Destroyed”

This means that lockdown is over, right? I failed to hear any in the media decrying the failure to social distance at the protests, like they did with ReOpen ones (for clarity, Fayetteville Street is downtown Raleigh, separate from Fayetteville, NC)

‘Fayetteville Street is just destroyed:’ Looters set fires, break windows and steal from stores in Raleigh

Protests, fires and outrage over the death of George Floyd have broken out in more than a dozen cities across the country, with some protesters smashing windows, setting cars ablaze and clashing with police officers.

Tonight, protesters in Fayetteville and Raleigh have grown unsettled–and, in some cases, violent. A historic building was set on fire and vandalized, police cars are being smashed, flags have been burned and protesters have thrown bottles and other items at officers. By the end of the evening, it was unclear if the looters and people causing property damage were part of the original protests at all.

Protests began peacefully on Saturday afternoon, with protests scheduled in cities across North Carolina. Durham, Raleigh and Fayetteville had marches with hundreds of protesters chanting, “No justice, no peace.”

Over 1,000 protesters marched in downtown Raleigh.

I had the intention of going down to the Raleigh one after work to see what was going on, yet, tear gas was already being used because some were throwing stuff at the police. I actually watched this occur on TV, and the brave throwers would throw something then run away.

But, you know, if you’re yelling “no justice no peace” without setting the terms of what justice is, then people are going to take the “no peace” part literally. And there were more than plenty of white leftists involved, and I saw the TV pan past at least one Antifa spray painted logo in Raleigh. Some said the Proud Boys were around early, around 4pm, in Raleigh. Watching the video live, it wasn’t them looting and throwing things and destroying things and lighting things on fire

Several fires started in downtown Raleigh between Fayetteville Street and Moore Square last night, where crowds gathered and riding around on the top of cars.

“Almost every window down Fayetteville Street is broken,” said WRAL reporter Keely Arthur. Looting has begun in downtown Raleigh, as looters have broken windows in multiple businesses and set a fire in the CVS on Hargett Street and Fayetteville Street.

Looters broke into Cross Creek Mall in Fayetteville and appear to be going in and out of the JC Penney. Police arrived on the scene last night.

The Market House, where many protesters in Fayetteville gathered today, was set on fire and windows were smashed. Protesters added more fuel to the fire and threw wood pallets to encourage a larger fire in the Market House

In fairness to Durham, NC, there’s no reports of the things that occurred in Raleigh and Fayetteville. Right now in Fayetteville around 40K are without power, and they have no idea why.

4:30 a.m.: Police confirmed several businesses in Emporium Plaza were damaged during last night’s protests: AT&T, Raleigh Tobacco and Dr. Stylez. There’s a cash register on the ground and broken glass outside the buildings. There is also vandalism at the Gamestop on Capital Boulevard.

If you look at the map, that center is miles from downtown, so, someone took advantage.

3:00 a.m.: Fayetteville Police said things are beginning to quiet down, but they are blocking all roads around the hot zone. An officer said two Walmart stores and a Dick’s Sporting Goods are all ‘destroyed,’ among others.

Will those stores rebuild, or move on?

12:05 a.m.: An employee from Dollar General in downtown Raleigh spoke on camera saying she is concerned the damage, looting and fire will impact her job. As many local businesses were already struggling due to COVID-19, the destruction creates concern of more job loss during a time of economic hardship for many families.

Fayetteville St is destroyed. Not one business downtown is untouched. At a minimum, businesses had graffiti and/or broken windows. And there was damage on other streets in downtown.

Not white supremacists or such, eh? Also in fairness, the live video I saw last night had whites and Hispanics doing the bad things.

Because Conservative protests rarely become violent. The only times they do it is because groups like Antifa show up. And the Raleigh PD saw what was happening at other George Floyd protests around the country. The reopennc ones weren’t taking over the streets, weren’t yelling fuck the cops, weren’t spray painting buildings, weren’t throwing things.

    There’s police brutality in (ultra-liberal) Minneapolis, so that justifies rioting in NC?

    Sounds like liberal Logic (TM) to me…

    • formwiz says:

      The more we learn, the less likely that is.

      What gets me is how the cops in these cities run like militia in 1861.

    Believe it. Fayetteville is home to Fort Bragg, which means 82nd Airborne, 3rd SGF, JSOC, CAG, and Pope Field.

    Start something there an d your snowflake ass gets kicked into another dimension.

    • david7134 says:

      Had a relative in the 82nd, we visited and you can literally smell the testosterone. We also found that it is one of the more dangerous towns in the US on the weekend with all the bar fights. I agree, a little liberal in that town would be fun to play with.

    I couldn’t help but notice the major cities now ablaze and full of rent-a-ANTIFA all seem to be blue and/or in blue states. I wonder why? Is this the next chapter in the left’s efforts to bury Trump? Seems so. Suddenly wearing a fukin’ mask isn’t so damn important, but keeping small businesses closed is still in force. Wouldn’t want a bunch of Korean shop keepers shooting down Democommies now would we?

    Street simians gotta do what street simians gotta do. Elwoods commie friends are out looting our future and all the DEms can do is bitch that “it’s all Trump’s fault” just like they did about the CCP Flu. All they got is hate and lies.

    Trump 2020 Don’t let these animal bastards loot America like the did Minneapolis.

    • formwiz says:

      You and I are both old enough to know this hands the election to Trump, even if there were no tyrannical lockdowns or economic recovery.

      From top to bottom, this shows the Demos are all out for one thing and they’re on one side and America’s on the other.

      • Kye says:

        Well formwiz, the election has been Trump’s to lose all along that’s why I cringe every time the guy Tweets or gives a damn speech. When we see the same bullshit “polls” claiming the same bullshit numbers we saw in the last election we know the Fake News Media is just makin’ shit up or cookin’ the numbers. One or the other. Leftists lies always become more prolific the closer the election gets just like their formidable vote fraud planning does. Now is the time for complete unity and total awareness because they are getting more and more desperate. They will become cornered rats soon and they will try anything. Don’t put past assassinations of Trump, his staff and supporters (that means us). I put up three Trump/Pence flags and four similar lawn signs on Memorial Day along with my standard US flags. So far, none have been touched but bear in mind I’m in a predominantly Republican suburb. I doubt they will all last till November but I have back-ups so screw’em.

        Be prepared. If you have a concealed carry permit, us it. If not get one and use it. Do not be caught defenseless anywhere. Same goes with home security cameras.

        Trump 2020 Or the left will burn America if they don’t just lock it down.

        • david7134 says:

          Problem is that the Dems will cheat. They pulled millions of votes for Hillary out of the air or to be more accurate out of the ground.

          • formwiz says:

            Let ’em.

            They’re already getting sloppy about it. The more desperate and the more sloppy, the more get caught.

            I don’t think it will matter though, because Trump has too much going for him.

            The recovery, the lockdowns, these riots, and the fact most of what he’s done is what the average slob wants and constitutes the promises he’s kept.

  5. Kye says:

    We know this, david7134. We’ve ALWAYS known this but the fag leadership refused to do anything about it. Now, with Trump running our show there’s a chance he won’t tolerate that shit any more. That’e really the only hope for this Republic. We cannot allow the same people who deliberately caused a national panic over a flu, who openly tried to promote a coup against our government, who loudly proclaimed they wold then impeach Trump yet failed to indict on one single felony and who stand behind the ANTIFA and BLM thugs as they burn and pillage our cities like a bunch of 9th century Vikings. The Democrats have proved themselves the Enemy of the United States, Liberty in government and Freedom for people. In the real world they are the Non-essentials and the expendables and we need to keep them out.

    We already know they have banks of lawyers sitting at the ready to swoop in on any close or in other words challenging election in any state and any city. They have their racist and communist allies like the ACLU and BLM who will “create” votes out of thin air and submit court challenges in seconds after the polls close. We kno they will use their bullshit “motor voter” crap to register illegals to vote. We know they will use vote harvesting in conjunction with their newest scam, mail-in votes, to stuff ballot boxes across the country. We know this time they will not miscalculate the Electoral vote and may even manipulate that to win.

    Now we need to do something about it and stop this travesty of our sacred right to vote. Diligence, observation and the willingness to prosecute and demand recalls when “Frankin” style results occur. Trump is our man and if he expects to continue he best keep his eye on the ball. They rarely win fair but when they win by cheating and we allow then to it is we who are the enablers. WE are NOT “all in this together”. We are in this for to build the country we love. They are in this to destroy the nation they HATE.

    Trump 2020 Our Republic cannot endure corrupt elections.
