Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani says the Black Lives Matter movement puts a target on the back of police officers. Giuliani adds, “When you say black lives matter, that’s inherently racist.”
It is becoming harder and harder to see what is the difference between what the Black Lives Matter people call “protests” and actual riots in the street. In the name of protesting brutality, they have become fairly brutal themselves. Stores are being looted and set on fire, police are being assassinated in the streets, with civil unrest at it’s highest levels since the late 1960’s. It shows no signs of slowing down, and in fact is anticipated to reach new highs during both the Republican and Democrat conventions which are coming up soon. Is it time to designate Black Lives Matter as a domestic terrorist organization?
Before you answer that, that a quick scan of some of the activity during just the last 24 hours across America.
While thousands of demonstrators flooded the streets of major U.S. cities again Saturday night — protesting the recent killings by police of black men Philando Castile in suburban St. Paul, Minnesota, and Alton Sterling in Baton Rouge, Louisiana — a demonstration in St. Paul took a particularly violent turn, with participants hurling Molotov cocktails, fireworks, rocks, glass bottles, concrete slabs, and bricks at riot gear-wearing police officers.
And between demonstrations in Baton Rouge and St. Paul alone, there were more than 200 arrests.
The St. Paul protesters, who kicked off the night at 8 p.m. from the governor’s mansion, forced the closure of Interstate 94. Some threw objects and dropped liquids from overpasses on officers below. Others directed laser pointers at officers.

Multiple gunshots were fired at the San Antonio Police headquarters building Saturday night, and police are seeking a suspect who was seen running from the area, SAPD Chief William McManus said.
The shots were fired just before 10 p.m. Saturday. There were no reports of injuries, but bullet marks were found on the exterior wall of the building, McManus said. Shell casings were discovered in a nearby alley.
New Black Panthers and BlackLivesMatter activists protesting the deaths of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile were arrested and weapons were confiscated Saturday evening in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
