Baltimore "Purge": National Guard Arrives As City Burns, Rioters Warn "Nice Night For A Revolution" - Live Webcast

Tyler Durden's picture

This young gentlemen seemed to sum things up... "Nice night for a Revolution"

The National Guard has arrived...



Update: Rioters are cutting and stabbing hoses to damage them so Baltimore FD cannot fight fires...


*  *  *

As The Baltimore Sun reports,

The governor is sending 500 state troopers to Baltimore and requesting as many as 5,000 officers from neighboring states, he said in a press conference.


"I have not made this decision lightly," Hogan said. "The National Guard represents a last resort."


The incident stemmed from a flier that circulated widely among city school students via social media about a “purge” to take place at 3 p.m., starting at Mondawmin Mall and ending downtown. Such memes have been known to circulate regularly among city school students, based on the film "The Purge," about what would happen if all laws were suspended.

The situation is escalating quickly in Baltimore after police said they received "credible" threats from street gangs who have promised to ban together to "take out" cops in the wake of protests surrounding the funeral of Freddie Gray who died after suffering a spinal injury while being taken into custody by authorities. 

Now, the SWAT team has been called out to confront protesters.

Don't put it past TPTB to seek to exploit this tragedy to get the public onside with the police state.

What the State needs to do is prosecute these rouge cops... How could anyone with a functioning brain think that sending in a SWAT team when nothing was even burning yet help?

Sandy Hook psy-op, Boston Bombing psy-op?

Rich people don't necessarily have a better concept of property rights than poor people.

They are just in control. The police and the military have always been about protecting the controllers.

This is a very sad, its all a result of very simple politics and the blame game. While I will not say racism does not exist, I think when it is chronicled in a completely biased way it impact the judgement of otherwise decent people.  The fact that blacks are worse off under Obama does not seem to resonate with them as he blames the white man for all the problems.  Fomenting division and reverse racism have created dangerous rifts in this country. I worry that instead of healing that there will be a racial war where nobody wins.  And most of this is because of our Nobel Prize for Peace winning POTUS.  UFB!!

Why do these racist cameramen only show the black rioters and looters?  Where are the whites?  The Native Americans?  The Mexicans?  The Japanese?  The Chinese?  The Jews???

THere are some flaws in the foundation of the building. The "land of the free" was founded on 1. Expropriation of native Americans and genocide 2. Slavery of Africans. 3. Religious fanatics being expelled from Europe because they creating too much trouble there. 

In the middle of that emerged as well certain virtuous American people and great historical figures. Which one will prevail?

The gangsta ghetto thugs are not starting a revolution! They are using the Freddie Gray incident as an excuse to loot and steal property from innocent black people in their neighborhoods. Only a delusional white leftist libtard would believe otherwise.

My brother in law was a Navy demolition diver in Vietnam. He said, when on R/R, he only went to bars where the Roksy's ( Republic of South Korea ) had established as safe. They did this by drawing a circle of 30 meter radius, with powdered chalk, around the grounds of the bar. They then parked a couple of jeeps with a 50mm on back. Anyone besides them, Americans, and hookers crossed the line, they mowed them down!

They have a rich tradition of vigilanteism!

Why they are on Wall Street and in Washington DC.


Do you even pay attention? The looting is much better there.


Why waste your time where there is nothing of real value to loot?

Tall Tom,

I think you meant this....

Wish I could post the cartoon captures the whie versus black compairon perfectly! (also rich versus poor).

While you are absolutely right, but poor people are not so smart and they think day to day....and the system keeps them down for a reason worldwide.

See black people as frightened & impulsive children, not capable of getting by in white civilisation, then their behaviour makes sense

conscious being's picture

White peolpe are no longer capable of getting by in what passes for white civilization, so what's your point? Are you OK with no rule of law, droned wedding parties a discarded Constitution, rent farming the population, etc. if only people would keep it cool in the 'hood? Why?

I love the thug dude with the sign saying 'will I survive in America?'

Typical self entitled prick.  Its all about him.

Perhaps we should be holding a sign saying will America survive with thugs like you?

Seeing those crowds of thugs attacking as a mob one understands the need for machine guns in the USA.  The fucking liberals took away our ability to protect ourselves from the mob attack.

I wonder if George Washington would of turned back from his crossing of Delaware river if he had the foresight to see this shit.  Or what about the folks running the Underground Railroad back in the days.  Hmmm
