Protests are happening all over the US this week after the police lynching of a Black man named George Floyd. In several cities, white supremacists are showing up to these protests pretending to be allies to the cause. And there are several videos of white supremacists using unconventional weapons to launch ambush attacks on unsuspecting Black people in the crowds.
These white supremacists understand that the white media will help give them cover, by labeling any Black person at a protest as a “looter”. The looter label criminalizes the Black person, and whatever action is taken against the Black person, is therefore justified.
This week, there was a white woman in Minneapolis who tried to ambush several Black people with a knife in a Target store. In Salt Lake City this week, a white supremacist showed up to a protest with a bow and arrow, and he tried to target Black people as well.
In Dallas yesterday, a suspected white supremacist tried to attack Black protesters with a sword. Like many of the other white supremacists around the country who launch these ambush attacks, the Dallas Swordsman was quickly neutralized and brought to heel by the Black protesters he was trying to victimize.
Many alt-right publications and websites tried to lie and say the swordsman was a business owner trying to protect his business from looters. This is a complete fabrication. The swordsman does not own a business in the area where his failed attack took place. And it appears he clearly left his home with a sword, with the intentions of using it on someone.
Here is the video below.
