Newspeak: They're not rioting … it's called 'reparations'

Chicago riots (August 2020)An author and conservative analyst is making the case that the arguably reasonable protests against police brutality across the U.S. have been hijacked by radical anarchists.

BLM- and Antifa-led riots in Portland, Seattle, Washington, DC, and several other American cities – most recently Chicago – are showing little sign of going away. Some in the media and on Capitol Hill describe the open anarchy as simply a dedicated few whose passions have gotten the better of them, but conservative author and commentator Dr. Carol Swain sees through that façade. She contends that those doing the rioting are much more organized than is being portrayed.

"These people have ear pieces just like the Secret Service, that when they do these protests, that one person is assigned to break out the windows and the other one to deliver the bricks. It's not spontaneous uprisings in these cities," she emphasizes.

Speaking Friday on American Family Radio, Swain said the public is being deceived with the help of Democrats in Washington and the mainstream media.

"The political left has always been very good at naming things in a way to disguise what they're really about," she explains. "The slogan 'Black Lives Matter' [for example] – it's a statement of truth in the same way that all lives matter.

"There are people out there who care about black people. They want to show their support for blacks, and they believe that they have to affirm Black Lives Matter," Swain continued. "So, they are confusing the slogan with an organization that I would say is terrorist in the same sense as Antifa."

She argues that the rioters' end game has very little to do with police brutality. Their ultimate goal, Swain says, is "to overthrow the U.S."

According to Fox News, one BLM organizer justified Sunday night's looting and rioting in Chicago as "reparations" and rationalized the $60 million in property damage along the city's Magnificent Mile by saying: "Anything they wanted to take, they can take it because these businesses have insurance."
