New conservative/media complaint is that the protestors appear to not have a unified message. Like the Arab Spring, this protest started out as a backlash against police brutality, but has now become part national mourning, part a movement to make US a global civil rights leader.

After 115,000 Covid-19 deaths over just 12 weeks, people are no longer ok pretending it’s all ok 👌. Intelligence officials are noting the signs of decline they were trained to detect in other nations: "This is what happens in countries before a collapse."  https://www.washingtonpost.com/national-security/cia-veterans-who-monitored-crackdowns-abroad-see-troubling-parallels-in-trump-handling-of-protests/2020/06/02/7ab210b8-a4f6-11ea-bb20-ebf0921f3bbd_story.html 

No other developed nation has as high unemployment as US — the mirage of a booming economy swiftly shattered, it put out on the streets thousands of unemployed — a giant cathartic release and a new civil rights revolution rolled in one. This is picking up where Occupy left off.

Protests are also a giant, “Pardon our dust while we remodel” sign meant for the world—where Trump failed to condemn Floyd’s murder in unequivocal terms (he retweeted attacks on Floyd’s character), protestors have decided that they will now take over leadership on civil rights.
