The Philadelphia Eagles won the Super Bowl, and hundreds of fans rioted, tearing up the city and destroying property. [When you look at these videos of violence and looting, you cannot help wondering what the police were doing during this time. Is violence now tolerated in order to further condition law-abiding citizens that martial law is necessary? Please let us know if there is an explanation from police for not preventing this. That’s what they are paid to do.] -GEG

Imagine if people had this level of passion for something which actually mattered.

From RT:

A blast of unknown origin has occurred in Philadelphia and several people have reportedly been injured in street violence amid celebrations of the Philadelphia Eagles’ victory over the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LII.

Celebrations of the historic Super Bowl victory of the Philadelphia Eagles led to havoc on Sunday night, as cheering crowds damaged property and turned cars upside down, and an explosion was reported in the city.

Some people said on Twitter that Antifa activists had joined the rallies, attaching a video of men apparently attempting to hang an uprooted traffic light from a lamp post.

Earlier, a wild crowd reportedly attacked police, throwing bottles at them and forcing the officers to put on their helmets. One policeman was run over, according to social media reports.

A shooting has been reported on a highway and the police are requesting back-up. The situation in some parts of the city is apparently out of control, with most of the traffic lights taken out and people continuing to vandalize buildings. The central Old Navy store has reportedly been vandalized, with its doors ripped open and/or its front window broken in.

Many people turned to social media to condemn the violence in the streets, pleading with the crowd not to rip the city apart.

We hesitated to publish this fact and risk being accused of trying to cover up police brutality, which certainly is not the case. We have a long record of reporting on cases of police brutality when warranted.

Why Social Distancing Is Harmful to Children

The COVID-19 fatality rate for children is so low that the CDC calculates it at 0.0% for anyone under 19 years of age. Isolation creates depression, lack of sleep, poor cardiovascular function, cognitive decline, and impaired immunity. This is a must-watch.

The Origins of Black Neo-Marxism

The rioters should be arrested and charged and prosecuted. They need to learn to direct their energy in more productive ways.

“That’s what they are paid to do.” (“they” = police)

No, that’s not what the Talmudic-Hobbsian police state thugs are paid to do. Let me tell you what hey are paid to do:

PROTECT THE PROFITS OF THE “IDLE RICH”, AND ENSURE THAT THE NATION’S POPULATION IS ENSLAVED TO THEM through their corporate-financial hegemony.
