Outrage That Belarus Police Will Use Violent Weapons to Combat Violent Uprising

I don’t believe there is a serious person who believes Antifa shouldn’t be shot.


Belarus police will now be permitted to use combat weapons in the streets if needed to respond to what the Interior Ministry described as increasingly radicalised mass anti-government protests.

Police said they had detained 713 people at mass protests on Sunday in which security forces used water cannon and batons to break up crowds demanding a new presidential election.

Tens of thousands of Belarusians have demonstrated every weekend since an Aug 9 election in which President Alexander Lukashenko was declared the winner. His opponents say the result was falsified; Lukashenko denies rigging the vote. Most opposition leaders have fled the country or been arrested.

“The protests, which have shifted largely to Minsk, have become organised and extremely radical,” the Interior Ministry said in a statement.

“In this regard, the Interior Ministry’s employees and internal troops will not leave the streets and, if necessary, will use special equipment and military weapons,” it said.

This entire thing where the left and journalists can use unlimited amounts of violence but its evil when the right does it is as silly as any single thing on earth.

Well, it’s not as silly as the coronavirus or the racism hoax. Or the Russia hoax.

But certainly: everyone knows that Antifa is a violent terror group.
