A man was shot while attacking a militia member in Albuquerque, New Mexico on Monday. Groups of ANTIFA leftists and a private militia force had been facing off at the statue of Juan de Onate, a Spanish explorer who had been the first governor of the province of New Mexico.
Left-wing rioters had gathered at the location with the hopes of destroying Onate’s statue, and were caught on tape attempting to forcefully dismount the public monument.
Video of the confrontation shows a large group of leftists swarming and attacking a man in a blue shirt, who attempts to flee from the scene of the monument. The leftists continue to chase, berate, and assault him, and eventually several mob him and prevent him from fleeing. At that point, he can be seen reaching for a firearm, and several shots can be heard.

Left wing vandals can be heard threatening the blue shirted man in no uncertain terms, stating that “we’re going to kill you.”
Will all the news outlets & blue check marks condemning the armed counterprotester make sure to report that Antifa screamed "We're going to f**king kill you!!" repeatedly as the mob punched & beat the man with a huge skateboard & unidentified objects? Didn't think so… https://t.co/wJQFH2caiI

The incident appears to be self defense. The man, who may be affiliated with the militia group New Mexico Civil Guard, who had arrived at the monument to safeguard it from vandalizing rioters.
The man who was shot in the incident was taken to an area hospital, where it’s been reported he’s in critical but stable condition.
Albuquerque police appear to be already chomping at the bit to blame the incident on right-leaning militia members who appear to have been forcefully attacked by left-wing rioters, despite video of the shooting revealing the man clearly trying to flee the scene of the monument and only drawing his gun when a group of aggressive, belligerent vandals pinned him to the ground and started forcefully beating him.
Message from APD Chief Michael Geier: “We are receiving reports about vigilante groups possibly instigating this violence. If this is true will be holding them accountable to the fullest extent of the law, including federal hate group designation and prosecution.”

Minnesota Governor Asking President Trump to Declare Riots a Federal Disaster In Hope of Receiving Bailout Funds
Weren’t they peaceful protestors?
Minnesota Governor Tim Walz is requesting that President Donald Trump declare the recent rounds of race riots in Minneapolis a federal emergency, so that the state may access federal bailout funds intended for communities affected by disasters.
Governor Walz and Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey largely stood by idly as race rioters destroyed and damaged more than 700 buildings in the riots, which occurred after the controversial death of George Floyd during a questionable arrest at the hands of the Minneapolis police department. The property damage from the widespread riots is estimated to range in the tens of millions, and Frey is already pushing a federal bailout to repair the damages enabled by his unwillingness to prevent criminality and support of the rioters’ “message.”
Governor Walz referenced the victims of the riots in a statement requesting the bailout, callously ignoring that the victims of the riots were not only victimized by criminal riots, but simply ignored in their hour of need by state and local officials unwilling to confront left-wing criminality in the name of “justice.”
“We’re asking our federal partners to step up and help our communities recover,” demanded Governor Walz. “We need to come together to ensure Minnesotans who were victims of this destruction have access to critical infrastructure they need so they can go to the grocery store, pick up their medication, and live their lives. Together, we will rebuild.”
The Governor’s estimate of property damage from the riots is considerably greater than what the mayor estimated, claiming that combined damages from the destruction could cost as much as $500 million.
In the new world of unabated criminality and violent destruction from vicious gangs in Democrat-controlled cities, Democrat officials will always be prepared to come cup in hand to American taxpayers with hopes of funding the repairs of the rioting that they enabled, allowed, and perhaps even tacitly supported. No responsibility or integrity.
