Why Did Protesters Block Rioters From Looting Target and Not Any Other Stores?

The looting seems to be nonstop over the past several days. Rioters want to rip apart cities to show their anger for what happened to George Floyd. However, as protesters announced the call to loot a Target in Brooklyn, organizers decided that hitting the popular store was not okay.

It’s funny how protective some people can be. Looting entire cities are okay but don’t touch my Target.

With some people moving forward to protect the Target, though, it’s encouraging. Perhaps there’s some good still left in the world.

Many stores are choosing to close temporarily until things go back to normal. Although this is happening across the country, many of them are located in Minnesota. The Target in Brooklyn has chosen to close temporarily, too, since it was on the hit list to be looted.

One of the protesters that were there to prevent the looters thought that they could be undercover NYPD detectives there to make the demonstrators look bad. What? Even when there is a peaceful demonstration, there’s always that one person or one group that has to make it worse. NYPD has said that they were not behind it.

Further, Target has seen a significant amount of damage from looting in the past week, not counting the event in Brooklyn. It’s why so many of the stores around the country are choosing to close for a little while. Their employees and their inventory need to be protected – and there aren’t going to be good Samaritans available to stand in front of every Target around the nation.

Maybe it’s the “right-wing conservatives” making the black protests look bad.

That’s one theory that’s going around. According to some of the protest organizers, it’s not the “black and brown folk” responsible for antagonizing the police. Many are quick to blame white people for throwing everything from water bottles to urine at the police. It’s when the police finally snap and start to tear gas everyone.

Is that what’s really going on, though?

There are plenty of videos out there to say otherwise. Often, it’s the white people who are looking to stop the looters and rioters. While there are always going to be those who want to riot for the sake of rioting, that’s not specific to one color. There are also YouTubers who are using these opportunities as a way to get noticed – and they’re the ones that are making it bad for both sides.

George Floyd wouldn’t have wanted this. He wouldn’t have wanted to see people fighting in the streets. Black-owned businesses have been broken into and looted by black people. There have been countless videos showing the footage.

Target seems to be feeling quite the brunt of the looting, and it’s because they’re based in Minnesota. If the killing of George Floyd or another individual had occurred in Seattle, it would likely be the Starbucks feeling the brunt of the looting.

While Target was quickly protected in Brooklyn, what about all of the other locations? What about all of the cities being torn apart and burned to the ground as people are angry about the racist killing that occurred? How does that help anything?

The looting continues, but who is doing the looting? It isn’t solely YouTube stars looking for some extra airtime. It isn’t undercover cops looking to start something. It also isn’t solely the “right-wing conservatives.”

What happened is horrible. It has identified that racism in the United States is still alive and well. However, if black people want to stop racism, they have to stop the looting. They have to work with everyone else to create a viable solution.

Right now, there’s a lot of blaming. There’s a lot of pointing the middle finger. The one thing that everyone can agree on, so it seems, is that Target should not be a target. Cities are okay, but please don’t touch Target.

  1. I am grateful for the people who protect the things of others. Devils will not do that. God is not blind. He sees the good hearted people, and they that are not good hearted. People who don’t fear God, will love darkness, thinking they can hide. They fool themselves. All of us had one language, at one point in time. We are one race.

    1. Probably because Target carries so many necessary items and if all the other stores are destroyed there is still somewhere to get food and other necessaries.

  2. That which is strange to people, is not of this world. Jesus was strange to everyone. I would that this strange was common. God does not want anyone to perish in his judging light.

  3. I hope the protectors were ARMED with AR15s . . . That should stop them COLD – literally. One disgusted Patriot. team Trump and his allies 2020.

    1. Coeur D’Alene, Idaho, a lake resort town also had BLM protester only we had armed people there to protect stores….and nothing was damaged. The protesters disappeared…google this.

    1. I mentioned that kneeling on the necks of some looters would slow down the riots and fb police wouldn’t let anybody see it.

  4. It’s NOT the protesters who are looting, burning, and destroying, It’s ANTIFA, and other anti-American groups who are bussing in rioters and looters. They are bringing in pallets of bricks and leaving them near the shops and businesses they want destroyed.

  5. The Democrats try to pretend that there is no Antifa and Soros does not fund them. However this is a pack of liberal lies. Soros fund all the Democrats openly and the Democrats fund Antifa, so what is different?

  6. There’s always a pathetic, selfish, creepy democratic behind these kinds of people. They show no leadership, they just want power and money, no love is ever shown for decency, personal matters whatsoever! You are not people in their eyes, but we are stupid humans who they’re trying to keep the wool over our eyes. We’re not stupid, in fact, we’re pretty smart to have gone through the last three years and already know everything they’ve done and tried to do. We also know the how the ending will come out. It’s in the Bible and the end of it tells us the end of the story. WE WIN. We might have to go through some trials but we still win the fight! AMEN

  7. “What happened is horrible. It has identified that racism in the United States is still alive and well. ”

    It says nothing of the sort. We don’t know what the cop was thinking, or those who were watching. It is an assumption that because the cop was White and the victim was Black that it was a racist act. I don’t buy that. There are any number of reasons why what happened did happen. All of them probably bad, but not necessarily driven by racism.

    The reaction by (mostly Black) rioters is not only not justified, it is very detrimental to the neighborhoods (which in this case are mostly occupied by Blacks). Their actions don’t help assuage relations between the races, either, as Whites could (reasonably) associate the rioting and looting with Black folk, which would exacerbate any lingering racist feelings.

  8. It’s a disgusting shame that anybody has to behave the way these people are. I don’t think Martin Luther King would be very happy right now. Antifa they should be locked up along with the mommy. The Soros I have a message for you Soros ain’t no water in hell echoes for all you Democrats to

  9. Soro’s and Antifa need to be locked up with the key thrown away, dont even feed the bastards.. Its time for this to stop, The democrats should be ashamed of themselves, but u have to hsve morals for that, and they have none.. The military needs to step in and have target practice, anyone there is a target.. Warn them, leave or be shot. PLAIN and SIMPLE. Any violence or looting should not be tolerated.. Put the National Guard or Military on a bonus system, The more points u get, the higher ur bonus is: Shoot them, Head shots are 5 points, Body shots are 4 points, Legs are 3 and Arms are 2 points, If u kill them u get a Bonus 10 points.. If u kill them and they are a leftie, 15 Bonus Points..

  10. The laws in this country should be changed when the police can’t, or won’t protect business owners, or home owners from thugs, or criminals . Wake up people, the politicians don’t give a damn about you or your family or your business. Their all protected by body guards with guns, or live in protected areas. It’s either the punks or you and your family. You choose, it’s the American way !!

  11. i think it is best for me to find some sort of personal defense. My country, my state, my city, my local law enforcement don’t seem to be able to provide the safety that I have come to expect from society. There are too many leftists, terrorists and ignorant people of every stripe that believe they can just “grab and go” without any ramifications. The “entitlement” attitude seems to be the philosophy of the day. ..no penalties for breaking the laws of man and G-d.
    I am truly afraid for my country and refuse to believe that the majority of people in this country condone the mass violence and the organized abhorrent Antifa movement so apparent in this week’s horrendous public indifference to our social contract with one another.

    I believe our Mayor and our Governor are weak, power grabbing socialists who have no concept of what is going on and what history will have to say about them…that they are only in it for themselves…for the power they “think” their inaction will bring to them. Their children and their children’s children will pay the price of their ignorance.

    1. I agree with your desire for Personal Protection. The America of Today is NOT the country that I grew up in, fought for, and once loved. This America belongs only to Satan and his Leftists.

  12. Racism? After riding their Coronavirus-terror horse to death, the Left has simply switched their Strategy to promote the Fear. The rioting and looting could be quickly quelled by armed local militias of patriots who still remember why God gave us triggers when He gave us the AR-15.
