It’s a common thing for cities who have been hit by the riots for officials to say that they don’t believe it’s local residents behind it, that they believe it’s “outside agitators.”

But in the case of Kenosha, a small town, compared to some of the other cities that have been beset with BLM virus, the residents insisted that it had to be outsiders.

Turns out there’s now some evidence to back that up, that most of the people were in fact, from outside Kenosha.

The Kenosha Police made a statement on Sunday about the make up of the people they had arrested.

From Townhall:

“As of 12:30 p.m. August 30, 2020 a total of 175 people have been arrested,” the department said. “Of the people processed during this week, 102 listed addresses from outside of Kenosha.”

People were arrested for curfew violations, carrying concealed weapons, burglary, and drug possession, the police said. Additionally, more than 20 firearms were seized.

The estimated damages to businesses, many of which were set ablaze or looted, is still being calculated, they added.

They came from 44 different cities.

It’s clear from what we have been seeing that people have been traveling from one riot hot spot to another.


How do we know that? Take the activity in Washington, D.C. this past week, there were people from Portland and Seattle that I could recognize, even some of the live streamers followed.

Andy Ngo identified this guy who was from Portland.

Here’s the “Snack Van” vehicle that provided provisions for ‘protesters’ in Portland, it went to Kenosha and to D.C.

Here’s this guy who admitted he was from New York, albeit in D.C. to cause trouble.


Riot Kitchen folks who came out of Seattle and then Portland were busted in Kenosha, allegedly with “riot gear” including helmets and illegal fireworks.

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) who was harassed and threatened by BLM people after leaving the Republican convention has called for an FBI investigation and Rep. Ken Buck (R-CO) has called for an investigation into the funding of the riots. The interstate travel and providing of support and supplies, can provide a basis for a federal investigation. Attorney General Bill Barr has already indicated they have federal terrorism task forces looking into some radical left actions and they have charged many already.
