MN Mayor: We Urge Rioters to Wear Masks and Practice Social Distancing

As the city is being looted, destroyed, and burnt to the ground, Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey asked the rioters to wear masks and practice social distancing.

“The City encourages everyone to exercise caution to stay safe while participating in demonstrations, including wearing masks and physical distancing as much as possible to prevent the spread of COVID-19. The City has made hundreds of masks available to protesters this week,”

Well that’s awfully nice of them.

What we have seen out of Minnesota is an absolute failure of leadership.

While they police were being urged to arrest anyone who was not practicing social distancing or was attending church services, rioters were burning Minneapolis buildings to the ground and assaulting innocent business owners.

But apparently what was more concerning was the practicing of social distancing.

MN Governor, Tim Walz (D), finally ordered the Minnesota National Guard to help put an end to the rioting and looting. Meanwhile City Council Vice President Andrea Jenkins called for an emergency declaration to declare racism public health issue.

“As we stand here grieving, yet another loss of black life, I am asking my colleagues, the mayor, and anyone else who is concerned about the state of affairs in our community, to declare a state of emergency declaring racism as a public health issue,” Jenkins said.

Mayor Jacob Frey went on to justify the actions of the mob.

“What we’ve seen over the last two days, and the emotion-ridden conflict over last night, is the result of so much built-up anger and sadness, anger and sadness that has been ingrained in our black community not just because of five minutes of horror but 400 years,” Frey said, according to The Washington Examiner (my former employer). “If you’re feeling that sadness and that anger, it’s not only understandable. It’s right.”

Notice what's missing from these statements?

Accountability. Acknowledgement of a terrorist organization trashing the people and city of Minneapolis.

  1. Yes! You wouldn’t wanna catch a cold while you are rioting, looting and burning the city to the ground!😂

    1. Of course we wouldn’t want you to be recognized in the camera shots ,you might be arrested !

  2. Minnesota’s Mayor’s statement: “Ok thugs and other valued citizens…let’s practice “Safe Looting!” As mayor of the progressive Utopia of Minneapolis, it is decreed LLM — Looters Lives Matter!

    Looters hereafter must practice Safe Looting. Please use masks and practice social distancing in your noble efforts to equalize your disadvantaged social standing by directly acquiring stuff those white supremacists denied you.”

  3. This is no longer about some black dude dying at the hands of police. this is using this as an excuse to TERRORIZE LOOT, destroy private property, injure, or kill people.(following the demcommunist “playbook”, alinski’s rules for radicals) Most of these PAID “professional protestors” are not even from the cities that are destroying, don’t even KNOW, or care about why or WHAT they are “protesting” about. They have been HIRED to do what they are doing by the likes of soros (and his “shell” companies) that has been proven to provide the financing and “transportation” to bus them where they are “needed”, and in MY opinion, it would be a “safe bet” that the DNC, hitlery, FRAUD obunghole, piglosi, schumer, and the “deep state alphabet agencies” are also providing “funding” and logistics.

  4. Minnesota is a Democrat state,it has the greatest number of Muslims living there,compared to any US state. The Muslims want to create Shire Law in Minnesota. It’s unbelievable that this has happened in Minnesota but don’t forget it is a DEMOCRAT VOTER LIBERAL STATE. NOTHING will change in Minnesota until the state gets rid of DEMOCRATS,We’ve seen this POLITICIAL problem from THE MINNESOTA DEMOCRAT GOVERNOR,who has NO POLITICAL EXPERIENCE,YET THE MINNESOTA VOTERS PUT HIM IN OFFICE. We’ve seen this with the rioting in Minnesota along with the Democrat mayor of Minneapolis BOTH POLITICIANS HAVE NO POLITICIAL EXPERIENCE AND BOTH SHOULD NEVER HAVE BEEN ELECTED.

  5. ” “What we’ve seen over the last two days, and the emotion-ridden conflict over last night, is the result of so much built-up anger and sadness, anger and sadness that has been ingrained in our black community not just because of five minutes of horror but 400 years,” ”

    No, what you have witnessed is the COMPLETE FAILURE of city government to address and REMOVE RACISM IN LAW ENFORCEMENT, as well as city hall.

    When ‘government’ (THAT IS YOU mayor) is HELD ACCOUNTABLE for your FAILURES AS A PERSON and YOUR FAILURES as an ELECTED OFFICIAL to hold those under you ACCOUNTABLE for POOR TO BAD PERFORMANCE and ALLOW/DEMAND one set of Citizens be treated as LESS THAN EQUAL the problem NEVER ARISE!

    Instead of arresting Protesters, CITY OFFICIALS should be treated EXACTLY THE SAME AS THE RIOTERS, LOCKED UP in the SAME CELLS!

    Let REALITY take its own course.

    1. How do you know it was racism that killed Floyd? Or are you saying the democratic leadership ( the preferred party of rioters) are racist and that is the reason Floyd was killed? I will look forward to the proof of your unfounded statement because your statement is confusing.

      1. What could the possible reason be for 3 cops to hold down someone who’s already in handcuffs, unless it has some basis in racism?

        On top of that is the over-reliance on the absolute power of the police to run things the way they see fit. The only recourse people have is months/years away in court, and hardly a cop in the country worries about that.

        The law needs to be changed to remove the cover police have when a suspect is handcuffed. The law needs to SPECIFICALLY add penalties for police who assault or brutalize prisoners. Maybe even allow citizens to “restrain” police that are actively assaulting prisoners.

  6. Two Peas in a Pod!! It is painfully obvious that democrat political leaders (Mayors & Governors) have their heads on backward. Every City or State where a democrat is in charge has seen their community destroyed by these Urban Terrorists. The black man who died was just an excuse to riot, destroy, rape & burn everything in sight while the democrat leaders wring their hands with not a clue as to stop them. Pathetic at best!

  7. Is he a nut? What the hell. They are destroying your city and what you worry about is masks and social distancing? The federal government should Not give you one cent in federal aide. You can’t fix stupidity!!’

  8. Yes social distancing while his city burns. He has and had no idea what to do when talking nicely didn’t work. A ravaged city is what you get when a city elects a left wing flower child. You reap what you sow. I have one word for all of the cities: RECALL!

  9. What different do it make about the virus when rebel protesters are going to kill cops and white people , these mayors and governors need to put these protesters out of their cities and towns, this is not a stand for justice.. this is a bunch of people not letting justice do their jobs..

  10. I going out on a limb here but your laws only apply to WHITE surfers or WHITE Fathers playing tee ball in the park with there daughter RIGHT.. don’t you dare apply those laws to riotous crazed black looters- thieves ,arsonist and assaulters.. heavens no you would offend YOUR base..

  11. what a bunch of idiots for leadership you are burning down there city but they want you to social distance and wear a mask and no mention of the unlawful looters and rioters or the consequences what a bunch of fools

  12. Frey is a total jerk, but Minneapolis gets what it deserves, eg. Omar. Molotov cocktails don’t ask what race owns a building before burning it to the ground. But as long as the thrower wears a mask and maintains social distancing, it’s OK.

  13. The Wisdom of a Supreme Blue-City-Elected-Idiot . . . more violence is rewarded by more violence. Looks like he’s looking out for their welfare while they burn his city to the ground.

  14. People that are this out of touch with reality should not be allowed to hold any public office. He and anyone that voted for him should be held accountable for the destruction that these liberals have caused!

    1. There will always be immoral imbeciles running for political power.
      But that doesn’t mean we should vote them into power.
      How many voters take the time to get familiar with the candidates resume and find out their positions on any number of issues?
      Usually people get the kind of politicians they deserve.

  15. Mayor Frey,
    You are a freaking IDIOT!!. Your damn city is being burned to the ground and you want the ones doing the burning to wear masks and practice social distancing. You asshole, I blame you for much of the rioting being done in other cities. When you surrendered a police precinct without any push back whatsoever you emboldened these thugs around the country. I would love to see them come for city hall while you are there. If the Alamo had been filled with gutless people like you then Texas would still belong to Mexico. You should hang your head in shame.

  16. You’d think some of these Dem Mayors or Governors would wise-up, get some common sense, and GET TOUGH… very TOUGH, with the rioters. But you’d be wrong.
    They never learn. How about here in Baltimore, 13 of our city high schools have ZERO STUDENTS performing at grade level according to the state testing. Stunning. Mayors and Governors have NEVER learned how to improve incentives for our own poor (often fatherless) citizens, decrease illegal immigration, cut taxes and government pensions. Never, not one bit.

    1. A jewish mayor. We must not blame the police but those who train them. Our guys are obliged to go to Israel, or are obliged to listen to a member of the Israeli Defense Forces harangue them here to learn crowd control. Look it up.
      And who but Schiff, Schumer, and Nadler spent two years trying to impeach the POTUS. Our once great republic is no sovereign. Weep for America lost!

  17. I wish I could say, “These people are insane.” The problem is, they are not. They are supporters and enablers of the terrorists The fact that they are in public ofice in an American state and city is a disgrace–and a danger to every citizen in their jurisdictions..

  18. Minneapolis has not had a Republican mayor since about 1973! The city council of 13 members has NO Republican members. The Chief of Police is African American. How then did the city get into such a mess?

  19. If black lives really matter, why aren’t they protesting abortion? Most abortions are killing black children.🤔

  20. I don’t understand, all of this is over a death of a black man, and all black lives matter as the rioters say. I have seen where rioters have killed for sure two black men, and maybe more. So I guess these black men that had lives and families too just weren’t black enough. Where is the outrage, do the rioters now riot over their actions? What a load of crap these people spew and pretend to care about. Looking at all the white people at the riots it definitely makes you think that all this and the corona virus lockdown is just a way to destroy and overthrow the government in this country. When you look at all the fake investigations, the name calling, the hate that the left spews everyday, that everything they accuse the right of they do ten fold. God help us if they take control of this country!

    1. I agree 100%, mam, Abortions kill many black babie, not just one, …..well I guess that black man, breaking the law, is not justifying to u rioters , was this man’s more impoetNt than all those black babies little lives?

  21. With these Politicians in Power, taking this course will never end. Arrested people will not be punished anyway.
    I fly the American flag in the suburbs. I will advise these Rioters to not come here.

  22. Instead of urging them to practice social distancing and wearing masks, why don’t you urge them to GO HOME!!!
