Marco Rubio Joins Democrat Hoax, Defends BLM Protesters, Blames ‘Far Right’ Agitators for Violence
Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) is spreading a media hoax that right-wing extremist groups are fomenting violence in the streets as the nation goes up in flames due to sustained rioting.
He released a groveling video on Sunday over Twitter in which he blamed nonexistent right-wing groups for causing violence along with left-wing extremists.
“The murder of George Floyd is both a tragedy and a travesty, and the anger we’ve seen built around that isn’t just justified, but is also more than just about Mr. Floyd’s murder. It is about the fact a substantial percentage of the American family believes and feels that their issues receive less attention and their lives are held with less value because of their race, because of the color of their skin,” Rubio said, echoing far-left Black Lives Matter talking points.
After making excuses for the rioters, he turned his focus to a conspiracy theory that right-wing agitators are instigating the violence.
“These protesters have been largely peaceful. They are not the ones looting and hurting and burning people,” Rubio said. “But something happens at these protests right around sundown. Suddenly they start to turn violent, and they start to turn violent because some people show up.”
“These people are violent domestic extremists and they range from ANTIFA groups who are radical to the Left to some other groups radical to the Right. In fact, groups that I would argue don’t even belong on the political spectrum as we know it… They share some common objectives. They hate the police. They hate the government,” he added.

What groups on the right? With all due respect, this is a cowardly response.

After Rubio was called out for his cowardly video address, he doubled down on his accusation against right-wing extremists even though he could not name any specific group or any specific instances of violence that they were responsible of committing at the riots.
With all due respect @LisaMarieBoothe what would be cowardly is condemning what Antifa is doing in the street but ignore what certain extremist groups on the far right are encouraging followers to do on telegram & facebook. I am against ANY group that undermines law & order https://t.co/c4Ak0e6SdM

Rubio has expressed sympathy toward ANTIFA terrorists in the past, such as after the Charlottesville disaster in 2017 when he justified their actions that led to several deaths:
When entire movement built on anger & hatred towards people different than you,it justifies & ultimately leads to violence against them 3/6

Yesterday, Big League Politics reported on the conspiracy theory concocted by failed Democrat leaders and the fake news media to pin the violence on white supremacists:
Minnesota’s Democratic Governor Tim Walz made a wild accusation relating to the Minneapolis race riots on Friday night, claiming that that he suspected “white supremacists” were instigating the chaos.
The governor also blamed drug cartels for allegedly instigating the riots, without explaining why and how the international criminal groups could’ve orchestrated the crowds of thousands of people committing crimes of arson and vandalism.
Walz went on to admit the state and local response to the riots had been an “abject failure,” an assessment that seems wholly unreflective as to what officials are ultimately responsible for the state response to the riots.
Neither the governor or his office have yet to provide any evidence for their shocking claim, which appears wholly unsubstantiated. The Minnesota Department of Public Safety later went on to claim that reports of supposed white supremacist involvement “have been confirmed,” but admitting that the law enforcement agency itself hasn’t confirmed them.
Walz would go on to openly admit that the state doesn’t want to arrest the riotous criminals causing extensive damage to the city of Minneapolis, evenly as he acknowledged that they were damaging and stealing the vehicles and cargo loads of working-class truck drivers.
RINO Republicans like Rubio are echoing some of the most idiotic propaganda in political history about the riots.
