A Minneapolis city council candidate urges BLM to burn down the rich section of the city. Naturally, she is a liberal. Margarita “Rita” Ortega wrote on her personal Facebook page that the poor neighborhoods are not the oppressors, the rich are and she suggests they burn down the affluent neighborhood of Lake of the Isles. Ortega is now being investigated by the police for credible threats.
Actually, Ortega may be onto a winning strategy because BLM runs the city, not the elected officials who race each other in their bid to stand down against the violence. This is a city that saw 1,500 of its buildings burned down by Black Lives Matter. Do you hear a single official or media talking head condemn BLM for their violence? Their silence is deafening.
Margarita Ortega, running for #Mpls City Council Ward 9, suggests that those who want to burn things go to Lake of the Isles area.

Prior to running for City Council, Ortega was a policy aide at Minneapolis City Hall. She spent ten years working for the city government which could explain why the city is in such bad shape. In a separate post, Ortega made the case that the rich have plenty of insurance and will have an easier time rebuilding.
FOLLOW UP: A resident from the Lake of the Isles area (and others) contacted MPD about @ritaforward9's comments & summarized the reply they got saying that it's being considered a "credible threat" & that person/s in MPD have forwarded the info to other units for investigation. pic.twitter.com/5pPbgaioil

“Division has been created and continues not by my hands. I’m not the greedy one living in million dollar mansions while people are sleeping in tents and on the street,” she said.
“The only way forward is abolishing the police,” she said on Twitter shortly after Wright’s death. “No institution should be allowed to murder in our communities with impunity.”
Black Lives Matter militants in Minneapolis are going off the rails, even though they got the verdict that they wanted and Derek Chauvin was seemingly convicted just to appease them.
In a speech before a crowd of far-left activists who stood in apparent agreement, a Black Lives Matter militant declared that they are going to burn the city down if they don’t get the change they are demanding.
“I need all the white liberals to keep caring,” the man shouted.
He went off on some more unintelligible screaming before asserting, what sounded like, “they gonna let us burn this motherf-cker to the ground before they give us systemic change.”
