On Saturday morning, Minnesota Governor Tim Walz made an extraordinary claim during a press conference.

He suggested that the protests and riots that initiated from the death of George Lloyd were being fueled by foreign and extremist influences. His only course of action was to fully mobilize the state’s National Guard for the first time ever.

[DAILY MAIL] ‘Last night is a mockery of pretending that this is about George Floyd’s death, or inequities, or historical traumas to our communities of color,’ Governor Tim Walz, a Democrat, said on Saturday.

On Friday night, widespread looting and arson continued in Minneapolis and nearby St. Paul, in defiance of curfews there, and protests spilled into violence in 30 cities, as a federal agent in California and a protester in Detroit were shot dead.

‘The situation in Minneapolis is no longer in any way about the murder of George Floyd, it is about attacking civil society, instilling fear, and disrupting our great cities,’ Walz said.

‘As you saw this expand across the United States, and you start to see whether it be domestic terrorism, whether it be ideological extremists to fan the group, or whether it be international destabilization of how our country works,’ he continued.
