A Democratic state legislative candidate called upon a Black Lives Matter mob “protesting” in a residential neighborhood of Hugo, Minnesota to “burn down” the Minneapolis/St. Paul suburban community.

“Don’t run now. Don’t run now, racist white people. I’m here. Oh yeah, we pull up!….Blue Lives ain’t shit. F*** Hugo, Minnesota.”
Thompson appeared to be directing his rant towards several teenage girls.
John Thompson claimed that a supposed “grand wizard” of the Ku Klux Klan was living in the city of Hugo, but it’s likely his claim is false, and that he’s merely referring to Bob Kroll, the leader of the Police Officers Federation of Minneapolis. The Black Lives Matter mob had been protesting outside of Kroll’s house, directing hateful language towards at least one family standing on the yard in the street intimidation event.

Thompson is currently a Democratic candidate for the Minneapolis State House, and recently won the primary for House District 67.
Kroll, a longtime police union in Minneapolis, has become a target of hate from Black Lives Matter mobs in the area. The legality of the confrontational street “protest” directly outside of his house is unclear, but urging a crowd to “burn down” an entire city is almost assuredly “fighting words” that can be legally prosecuted as an incitement to violence and riot under state and federal laws.
Southern Baptist Convention Reverses Course on Name Change After BLP Reporting
They say they’re not changing their name.
The Southern Baptist Convention has sought to dispel reporting from Big League Politics on the organization’s planned name change, arguing that the institution isn’t formally changing its name.
To correct multiple inaccurate reports, “We Are Great Commission Baptists” is the 2021 Annual Meeting THEME.
The GCB descriptor was approved in 2012 for churches to use if it would be helpful in their local context.
The Southern Baptist Convention remains our official name.

But a close look at the American Christian church’s plans relating to its name reveal that it’s played with the idea far more seriously than they’re making it seem.
Reports of a name change first emerged in a Washington Post article published on Tuesday. SBC President JD Greear told the Post that “hundreds of churches” affiliated with the denomination had “committed” to using the phrase “Great Commission Baptist” as an alternative to the denomination’s longtime moniker. The change would come as Greear touts his support of the Black Lives Matter, although he’s been careful in pointing out he doesn’t support any formal organization related to the movement. Greear also is renaming the church he personally pastors with the term.
The SBC’s 2021 convention will also organize under the motto of “We Are Great Commission Baptists.” Sounds a lot like a name change, even if the SBC’s leadership is steadfastly maintaining it isn’t.
The name ‘Great Commission Baptist’ is theologically sound in the Christian religion, but it’s somewhat questionable that the organization’s leader appears to be emphasizing it at a moment in which political correctness is making its entryism into many Christian churches and organizations.
It seems as if the organization’s figurehead is keen to present himself as a liberal-style suburban Evangelical to the Washington Post, but he changed his tune quite quickly when the rank and file membership of Southern Baptist churches learned that he was promoting the idea of a name change.
