Shields, Supplies Unloaded from U-Haul Truck for Rioters in Louisville

'We handed out supplies. That’s it ... umbrellas, water, masks, goggles, gloves...'

Law enforcement were not the only ones who appear to have been preparing in advance for violent riots in Louisville, Kentucky, on Wednesday.

At least two police officers were critically injured in the riots after Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron announced that the officers involved in the shooting of Breonna Taylor would not be directly charged for her death.

Video that circulated on Twitter showed a U-Haul truck handing out shields, picket signs and other supplies to the rioters.

The operation behind the mysterious van was the California-based Bail Project, according to reports by the National File.

Among its wealthy patrons is Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, who contributed $11 million to social-justice groups via the #startsmall initiative with singer Rihanna’s Clara Lionel Foundation.

Despite its seedy objectives, the Bail Project was one of those beneficiaries, along with other groups like Black Lives Matter that have sought to mask their radical, anti-democratic objectives behind a thin veneer of civil-rights advocacy.

Other celebrity supporters of the Bail Project include Virgin Group’s billionaire founder Richard Branson, Lethal Weapon actor Danny Glover and musician John Legend.

The group also reportedly has ties to George Soros‘s Open Society Foundations, with some of its top officials having cut their teeth as Soros Justice Fellows.

The driver of the truck was Louisville-based “bail disruptor” Holly Zoller, whom Twitter users noted had a history of appearing on the scene during violent protests such as a 2017 clash in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Some reports indicated that Zoller was posing as a U-Haul employee and raised questions as to whether the van-rental company might also have supported the riot effort. However, there was no evidence to substantiate the speculation.

Zoller, herself, confirmed her involvement in a recorded phone call, downplaying the actions before cutting the interview off for legal reasons.

“We handed out supplies. That’s it,” Zoller said. “… Umbrellas, water, masks, goggles, gloves.”

According to prior Senate testimony from Homeland Security officials, groups like Antifa have often relied upon innocuous-seeming objects like umbrellas to engage in urban guerilla tactics.

While concealing sharp objects and weapons in them, the organized anarchist and domestic terrorism groups blend in with throngs of otherwise—presumably—nonviolent demonstrators in order to foment civil unrest and promote conflicts with law-enforcement.

The Bail Project’s most notable contributions to Wednesday’s riots appeared to be shields and banners with sometimes obscene anti-police messages that exhorted violence.

However, Zoller shrugged off the messaging, asserting her First Amendment rights. “What does it matter what I posted on a sign?” she asked.

Many on the Left, including members of Congress and prominent media outlets, have robustly denied that groups like Antifa are part of a broader, well-funded anti-government network, insisting that they are an ideology and not an organization.

However, the presence of trained agitators has raised suspicions and alarm since the recent spate of riots began in June following the death of George Floyd.

In the immediate aftermath, rumors abounded that pallets full of bricks were among the items being dropped off in the middle of inner-city hot-spots.
