The Black Lives Matter movement has seen many phrases and messages repeated throughout their various riots and protests. One of the most common for the Leftist Group is “Say His/Her Name”. That particular chant may need to be retired after riots broke out in Minneapolis on June 3rd.
Unicorn riot was reporting from the scene as literal dumpster fires were lit near the intersection of Lake and Hennepin aka ‘George Floyd Square’, The Post Millennial and The Federalist Papers took up the story, (that should give you a clue). A young rioter being interviewed by the leftist publication couldn’t for the life of him remember the name of the man they were rioting for.
Leftist, Lawless, Clueless
:: Language Warning::
“We’re just holding space obviously for…I’m not gonna lie, I forgot his name”.
The young man then had to be told his name by the Unicorn Riot ‘reporter’ (ugh.) who told him “Winston Smith” before asking permission to record him the unidentified masked rioter the microphone,
“So we here you know, showing solidarity for Winston Smith. And uh, I didn’t even know about it. I don’t think like any fucking media knows about this shit either. So just so ya’ll know, the person that was shot in up there his name was Winston Smith. Don’t forget that name. Winston Smith. Say his name. Make sure ya’ll remember that shit. Because we’re gonna fight for him just the same fucking way we fought for George Floyd.”
This particular young man’s eloquence was only equaled by his staggering lack of self-awareness.

Burning In The Name Of?
Here we’ll help: Winston “Boogie” Smith, 32 was in the process of being arrested in connection with a murder investigation, Smith had a lengthy rap sheet and a past felony conviction.
- FOX 9 reported that according to law enforcement sources said Smith was a murder suspect.
- Officers opened fire on Smith when he “produced a handgun” and “failed to comply with officers’ commands,” the US Marshals Service said in a prepared statement obtained by WCCO.
- The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (BCA) investigating the shooting stated that “evidence indicates Smith fired his weapon from inside the car and a handgun was recovered at the scene. Spent cartridge cases were also found inside the driver’s compartment.”

But none of that matters when there is looting to be done in the name of social justice. Before the night was out a Target, a T-Mobile store and a CVS Pharmacy would be broken into and looted. Dumpster fires would be lit and multiple arrests would be made. Minnesota has seen more rioting and civil unrest for three nights since.

Sure over the weekend many on a’ right-leaning pundit had a good hard laugh at this. But in the cold light of a Monday morning, it’s just a sad indicator of how far our ideological opponents, about 40% of the country, have fallen.
