Oakland, Portland sue over use of federal agents at protests

No, because the civil rights protesters complied with the law and were still beaten up, that's the difference. They didn't throw bricks and molotov cocktails at the police, loot businesses, smash cars, or attempt to burn down federal buildings.

In fact they roundly condemned violence in all its forms, the exact opposite of what BLM leaders advocate.

This is because BLM is modeled after the Black Panthers (their ideological guru is Assata Shakur, a member of the Black Panthers wanted by the FBI for killing a cop), who were known for being violent and opposing integration. They called MLK a house n***** because he condemned their violent methods. Why don't you try opening a real history book instead of making hyperbolic personal attacks against strangers online?

If the BLM activists are really just like the civil rights activists, why did they choose a cop-killing former Black Panther as their idol, and not MLK? Because they don't agree with MLK's ideas of non-violence. So stop comparing them to the civil rights activists who they don't even agree with.
