"He [the armed white man] actually said, ‘You all just saved some lives tonight.'"

The Minneapolis protests this week—which resulted in fires and broken windows and reports of at least one adjacent shooting death—aren't just drawing racial justice activists. They're attracting attention from heavily-armed forces on the right. Some of them, members of a growing white supremacist movement, openly hope to co-opt the protests to start a race war. Others claim to make common cause with anti-police protesters, but may be inclined to turn guns on protesters when they appear to threaten private property.
