    Oh.my.gawd. Listening to the Idiot in Chief on his conference call with the governors that was recorded in bizarro world.

    Predictably the GOP governors are chatting Baby Trump up, agreeing that all the instigators are from some out of state, well organized, evil antifa group (makes one wonder just which state they are all coming from) and they hope to see them "taken out" (Rep gov. South Carolina). They are all going on about prosecuting "these people" yada yada. That half of the country wants an armed military response.

    One of the Democratic governors called him out, telling Baby Trump his rhetoric is making things worse. Trump's reply was predictable, he said the murder of Floyd was wrong, that should be all he needs to do.

    Enough of that, moving on to what Roxxsmom posted about:

    NBC News: White nationalist group posing as antifa called for violence on Twitter
    Other misinformation and misleading claims spread across Twitter on Sunday night and into Monday related to the protests....

    A Twitter account claiming to belong to a national “antifa” organization and pushing violent rhetoric related to ongoing protests has been linked to the white nationalist group Identity Evropa, according to a Twitter spokesperson.

    The spokesperson said the account violated the company's platform manipulation and spam policy, specifically the creation of fake accounts. Twitter suspended the account after a tweet that incited violence.

    As protests were taking place in multiple states across the U.S. Sunday night, the newly created account, @ANTIFA_US, tweeted, “Tonight’s the night, Comrades,” with a brown raised fist emoji and “Tonight we say 'F--- The City' and we move into the residential areas... the white hoods.... and we take what's ours …”
    But according to Baby Trump and his sycophants, there is some big national antifa group instigating violence. Maybe this nonsense is where Trump got his nonsense from.

    Then there were the WA DC atrocities because Baby Trump needed a photo op in front of the Episcopal Church.

    Twitter: Watch the shocking moment #7NEWS reporter @AmeliaBrace and our cameraman were knocked over by a police officer LIVE on air after chaos erupted in Washington DC. Quite violent.

    It gets worse: The Episcopal bishop of DC – who oversees the DC church Trump just stopped at – tells the @washingtonpost she is "outraged" and that neither she nor the rector was asked or told… “that they would be clearing with tear gas so they could use one of our churches as a prop.." 1/3
    Replying to @mboorstein..holding a bible, one that declares that God is love and when everything he has said and done is to enflame violence. I am beyond. We need moral leadership and he’s done everything to divide us and has just used one of the most sacred symbols of the Judeo-Christian tradition."2/3

    We so disassociate ourselves from the messages of this president. We hold the teachings of our sacred texts to be so so grounding to our lives and everything we do and it is about love of neighbor and sacrificial love and justice." @Mebudde Bishop Mariann Budde 3/3

    On the sane world front the Democratic governors and lots and lots of police and police departments were respectful and caring, doing the best they could to control the looters and vandals. Lot's of uplifting images in the news and on social media to counter the police that still don't get it, many of whom need to be fired.
