    'White Supremacist' umbrella-guy is entirely responsible for the rioting! /sarc

    Remember the umbrella guy?

    He's a white supremacist and the riots are all his fault!

    Some sources are saying he's a Hells Angel member.

    Note: Umbrella-man is not Police Officer Jacob Pederson as had been claimed earlier.
    They're saying his name is Mitchell Wesley Carlson. He has not been arrested.

    Remember, attorney general Keith Ellison said on that first day - prior to any investigation - that this was a "white supremacist".

    "Mitchell Wesley Carlson, 32, hasn’t been charged with a crime, although a judge granted police permission to search his phone records..."

    Man who helped ignite George Floyd riots identified as white supremacist: Police
    The suspect wore a mask and carried an umbrella, police said.

    A masked, umbrella-wielding man accused of helping incite riots and looting in the aftermath of George Floyd's police-involved death has been identified as a member of a white supremacist group that aimed to stir racial tensions amid largely peaceful Black Lives Matter protests, according to police.

    The 32-year-old, dubbed "Umbrella Man," was captured in a viral video back in May wearing a black hooded outfit and a black gas mask as he smashed store windows with a sledgehammer and encouraged people to steal, according to a search warrant affidavit filed in court this week.

    His actions quickly led to the first of several arson fires that police say transformed peaceful protests into local danger zones, the affidavit said. He's also accused of spray painting the words "free s--- for everyone zone" on the doors of an AutoZone before he allegedly smashed in the windows. The store was broken into and set on fire shortly after, the affidavit said.

    "This was the first fire that set off a string of fires and looting throughout the precinct and the rest of the city," Erika Christensen, a Minneapolis Police Department arson investigator, wrote in a search warrant affidavit filed in court this week. "Until the actions of ... 'Umbrella Man,' the protests had been relatively peaceful."

    "The actions of this person created an atmosphere of hostility and tension. Your affiant believes that this individual's sole aim was to incite violence," she added.

    Investigators said the suspect is associated with the Aryan Cowboys, which the warrant describes as a "known prison gang out of Minnesota and Kentucky." The Anti-Defamation League lists the Aryan Cowboys as a white supremacist prison and street gang, although the group's Facebook page claims it doesn't care "about a person's color."

    No charges had been filed as of Wednesday afternoon. The investigation is ongoing.

    Christensen, the arson investigator, said police identified the suspect after an emailed tip last week. The tipster described the man as someone who "wanted to sow discord and racial unrest by breaking out the windows and writing what he did on the double red doors."

    Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz and Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey warned residents of the possibility that white supremacists could be trying take advantage of increased racial tensions, but those claims were never proven.
