USA: WATCH: This Past Saturday, Unhinged Newly Elected Marxist Democratic Politician Leads Angry Mob Outside Home of Minneapolis Police Union Leader And Terrorizes His Family And Neighborhood

THIS IS ABSOLUTELY UNACCEPTABLE in a civilized nation! The Marxist Democrat Party is trying to turn America into a lawless Marxist 3rd world nation. (emphasis mine)

In a disturbing trend, an angry mob targeted the home of Minneapolis Police Federation President Bob Kroll on Sunday. A Facebook post from the mob's organizer, Racial Justice Network, accuses "KKKroll" of defending "killer cops" and claims the union leader has "dozens of complaints filed against him for excessive force."

Video shows incoming Minnesota State House Rep. John Thompson, a Democrat, leading the mob, hurling epithets and obscenities at frightened children standing outside Kroll's home. The mob also took swings at pinatas that depicted Kroll and his wife.

"I'm a black man being terrorized by the f****** klansman right here," Representative-elect Thompson shouted. "We are terrorized by the grand wizard. Ya'll got the grand wizard living in your god**** neighborhood. All the klan exist in Hugo, Minnesota and it's right here. Don't run now. Don't run now, racist white people. I'm here. Oh yeah, we pull up. We pull the f*** up."

Does the guy terrorizing Kroll and his family actually believe he's somehow the one being terrorized?

The incoming state representative then addressed someone off-camera carrying a Blue Lives Matter sign, a pro-law enforcement symbol.

"Come on over here with your Blue Lives Matter sign," Thompson threatened. "Blue lives ain't s***. And if people in Hugo don't support black people, f*** Hugo, Minnesota."

This is the behavior of a Democratic politician.

Republican State House candidate Elliot Engen called out Thompson and the mob.

"This was not a protest," Engen said. "It was a mob led by a future Democrat legislator whose goal was to harass and intimidate someone at their private residence, putting the safety of Hugo residents at risk."

Engel called on Democrats in the State House to send a message that this type of behavior is not acceptable.

"Their silence is a tacit endorsement of these dangerous tactics."

Leftists are ratcheting up the harassment, targeting the homes of their political enemies to frighten and intimidate them and their families.

On Saturday, another leftist mob targeted the DC home of United States Postal Service Postmaster General Louis DeJoy. And last month, a leftist mob descended upon the home of Acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf.

This type of political thuggery should have no place in America.

A Black Lives Matter rally outside the home of Minneapolis Police Federation President Bob Kroll disrupted a suburban neighborhood over the weekend and might cause political problems for the DFL House caucus. That's because one of the DFL-endorsed candidates for the Minnesota House of Representatives made threatening remarks at the rally and repeatedly struck an effigy of Kroll's wife, a local TV news reporter, with a large stick.

"I'm glad you're making them uncomfortable here in Hugo, Minnesota," St. Paul DFL house candidate John Thompson shouted into a microphone, followed by a string of expletives aimed in the direction of some men and teenage girls. "Don't run now, don't run now racist white people."

Later, in video shot by Alpha News, a conservative media outlet, Thompson is shown repeatedly beating the effigy of Kroll's wife while others strike an effigy of Kroll.

It took three days, but DFL House Speaker Melissa Hortman and Governor Tim Walz, who has endorsed Thompson, both issued statements about Thompson's behavior. Walz doesn't mention Thompson by name, but says, "We cannot accept the threatening behavior or rhetoric we've seen recently in Minnesota's political discourse."

Hortman's statement did mention Thompson's name.

"John Thompson's comments and actions were inappropriate, and he has rightfully apologized," Hortman said. Thompson is likely to win his heavily DFL district and would be working with Hortman and the majority caucus in January.

Carleton College political analyst Steven Schier says Thompson's controversial behavior and statements could cause political problems for the DFL.

"I think it would be politically smart for Democratic leadership to distance themselves from this sort of behavior and draw a firm red line that this is not permissible behavior," Schier told 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS. "Otherwise the suburbs are a problem for the Democrats. I mean the future of Minnesota politics is determined in the suburbs and you cannot have your party known as a party that despises the suburbs and that's what this incident suggests to some people."

Hortman has criticized other lawmakers in the past for controversial language. Last year, she criticized Republican House member Rep. Cal Bahr after he made veiled threats to gun rights opponents who want stricter gun laws.

"They need to be kicked to the curb and stomped on and run over a few times," Bahr said in a speech in the Capitol rotunda streamed live on his Facebook page.

At the time, Hortman said of Bahr's comments, "Rep. Bahr's comments are reprehensible and have no place in civilized political discourse. Encouraging violence is irresponsible and dangerous."

A Republican Senate candidate in the same area of St. Paul as Thompson urged him to end his campaign for the House.

"This shouldn't have to be political," Alexander Deputie said. "It's clearly an act of terror and it has no place within our country."

Deputie fled Liberia with his family at age 8 where he says this type of behavior was more common.

The DFL Party denounced Thompson on Sunday, one day after the rally, saying, "The Minnesota DFL does not condone any rhetoric which is violent, hateful or inflammatory. We expect our candidate and elected officials to live up to our highest values when they represent the DFL Party."

Thompson told the Pioneer Press newspaper he's not doing more interviews on the rally because he's received death threats. However, he issued an apology on his campaign Facebook page.
Sociopath alert. Make a "positive difference."? Wth? He's apologizing for "inflamatory rhetoric"? It wasn't just his language that was an affront to society, but his terrorizing the community actions and those of the MOB HE LED. This was premeditated, well planned BLM attempt to terrorize the community that supports police aka LAW ENFORCEMENT and the Minneapolis Police Union Leader AND his family including his CHILDREN. 👇 (emphasis mine)
"I want to make a positive difference and my comments on Saturday were not helpful," he wrote. "Inflammatory rhetoric is not how I want to address the important issues we're facing, and I apologize. I'm not apologizing for my passion to fight injustice."

Thompson was a friend of Philando Castile who was shot and killed in (July 2016) by a St. Anthony Police officer who was later charged and acquitted in the case.

The Washington County Sheriff and County Attorney issued a joint statement Monday saying after an investigation they determined "comments made by Mr. Thompson, though grossly inappropriate, do not violate any felony statute."

UPDATE 8/19/20 at 5:26pm: Added info below.

MPR News published June 20, 2017: Squad car video: Officer Jeronimo Yanez pulls over Philando Castile. The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension on Tuesday made public the massive evidence file collected as part of the investigation into the shooting death of motorist Philando Castile last summer by St. Anthony police officer Jeronimo Yanez. The file includes the dashcam footage from Yanez’s squad car. It is the only video that exists that captured the shooting of Philando Castile. The other video, Diamond Reynolds’ Facebook live, captured the immediate aftermath of the shooting.
It was a standard stop to inform the driver that their break lights were out that poses a danger to themselves and the general public. The officer then proceeds to ask for the driver's license it's standard procedure to make sure the driver is actually licensed to drive on the road. The driver tells the police officer Yanez that he has a firearm on him. Officer Yanez tells him, "don't reach for it." and "don't pull it out." AND the driver DID NOT LISTEN. What could have been a simple ticket or a simple warning ended in this driver's unfortunate death that he caused.

Anyone living in the United States of America or any part of the world for that matter should know NOT TO TOUCH OR EVEN ATTEMPT TO WITHDRAW YOUR FIREARM while in the presence of a police officer. If you are carrying a firearm, tell the officer where the firearm is in the car and keep your hands in view. This is the main reason why Police Officer Yanez, who by the way is not White, was acquitted. SHAME on all of the well respected news outlets making it look like the police officer assassinated the driver. I watched a few of your reports making him and his girlfriend appear so innocent and poster children for everyone to emulate. Your irresponsible reporting and standing with people who hate LAW ENFORCEMENT is why more police are the ones actually being assassinated across America. In July 2016, Minnesota's Marxist Democrat Governor publicly stated that RACE PLAYED A ROLE in this police killing. That's so grievously irresponsible for him to say. (emphasis mine)

PragerU published August 22, 2016: Are the police racist? Do they disproportionately shoot African-Americans? Are incidents in places like Ferguson and Baltimore evidence of systemic discrimination? Heather Mac Donald, a scholar at the Manhattan Institute, explains

PragerU published July 24, 2020: Police Union Leader: Stop Vilifying Cops. Did you know?

A police officer is 18½ times more likely to be killed by a black male than an unarmed black male is to be killed by a police officer.

There is an average of 27 deadly-weapons attacks on officers PER DAY in the U.S.

These are good men and women doing a dangerous job that the rest of us can barely fathom.

PragerU published July 15, 2020: Are Police Targeting Unarmed Blacks? If you didn't know any better, the media's narrative would have you believe that police are brutalizing unarmed black men by the thousands across the country. But is that really the case? Will Witt went to Venice Beach to find out what these young men.

A Harvard Study concluded that last year 16 unarmed White men were killed by police and 9 UNARMED Black men were killed by police.
