Some positive moments amid all the turmoil
Some positive moments amid all the turmoil by Simon Black for Sovereign Man
Look, things aren’t feeling so bright and cheery in the US right now. And the sad truth is that there are some tough times ahead.
We usually bring you stories on Friday that are absurd or even infuriating.
I’m sure you’ve seen enough of that this week.
So we thought we’d share a few moments of character and integrity shown at protests across the US, which shined through all the tragedy.
There are bad apples on all sides– some bad apple protestors who loot and burn and destroy. And some bad apple cops who engage in terrible acts of violence.
But there are plenty of good apples on both sides too.
Protesters tackle man breaking up sidewalk for projectiles
Peaceful protesters sprang into action when they saw a man destroying a sidewalk.
The man was dressed in all black, like Antifa, and was apparently destroying the sidewalk to create projectiles to hurl at police and businesses.
But rather than let things escalate, peaceful protesters tackled the man, took his hammer, and handed him over to a group of police who were nearby.
In fact, the police were right standing there, with the man in clear view. And yet they did nothing to stop him.
Cops even almost arrested one of the peaceful protesters who handed the man over. But they let him go after someone explained the situation.
Protesters hold line in front of business to stop looters
Undoubtedly there has been way too much violence, looting, and property destruction. Nothing takes away the moral high ground from a movement like seeing a bunch of guys walk out of an electronics store with big-screen TVs in hand.
And in the early days of these protests, the rage was palpable. Cars were torched, businesses were destroyed, and so much property was stolen.
But people are starting to take a stand against that type of chaos.
In Brooklyn, a group of protesters intervened a few days ago when looters and vandals approached a Target store.
The protestors formed a line in front of the store to stop the looters from smashing windows (and stealing store inventory).
