The narrative from rioters as well as media covering the riots is closing in on “if you don’t acknowledge your white guilt, you’re responsible for the riots.” To be clear, by definition no conservative person can possibly be a rioter, or the instigator of a riot. The definition of conservative won’t allow it: the belief in individual liberty that doesn’t impinge on others, the belief in personal responsibility, the belief in self-governance, and the belief in self-direction. Those beliefs are completely incompatible with riots.

President Trump is correct, it is the radical left-wing – groups like Antifa – who are rioting, and are responsible for the riots.
