The Democrats are trying to cover up the terrible violence that happened in the riots.
And they’re using one of their most vicious tactics.
William Barr crushed a shocking lie of the protests with a single sentence.
The Democrats can’t let Americans realize just how bad the violence and the rioting were.
The “mostly peaceful” riots caused an estimated half a billion dollars in damage in just Minneapolis alone.
Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey is asking for a federal bailout.
What is the mainstream media showing people? Police push a man down and police slash protesters’ tires.
When the mainstream media mention those facts,they try not to mention the numerous attacks on police officers. There was the federal agent who was killed, the retired cop who was killed checking on his friend’s business, the man who was killed trying to stop two women from being mugged.
The media have an agenda and they’re doing their best to feed the idea that the peaceful protesters were victims of more police brutality.
Attorney General William Barr defended the police’s choice to disperse a crowd near Lafayette Park because they were “not peaceful protesters.”
Barr said that the incident “has been totally obscured by the media” on CBS’s “Face the Nation” with Margaret Brennan.
“Did you think it was appropriate for them to use smoke bombs, tear gas, pepper balls, projectiles at what appeared to be peaceful protesters?” Brennan asked in a loaded question.
“They were not peaceful protesters — and that’s one of the big lies that the media seems to be perpetuating,” Barr insisted.
Brennan said that her CBS colleagues didn’t see any violence.
“There were three warnings given,” Barr said of Monday’s protest. “But let’s get back to why we took that action. On Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, there were violent riots at Lafayette Park, where the Park Police were under constant attack behind the bike rack fences. On Sunday, things reached a crescendo. The officers were pummeled with bricks. Crowbars were used to pull up the pavers at the park and hurled at police. Fires were set not only at St. John’s Church, but a historic building at Lafayette Park was burned down.”
An official CBS transcript shows that CBS made the choice to cut some of Barr’s description of the violence that happened on Sunday night.
“They were battling over the fences. They were trying to get entry. They were throwing bricks and inflammable liquid at the police. One-fifth of the — there have been 750 officers hurt in the last week. One-fifth of those have been in Washington, D.C. Most of those have been federal officers at Lafayette Park.” Barr said.
Crowds can become dangerous very fast and given the protests the day before, the police made the right call to clear a crowd that was becoming rowdy.
The left wants to claim that the police are completely corrupt because of a few instances of violence, yet they support the protests.
America should condemn police brutality when it happens but we should also decry the violence of the protesters that the mainstream media is trying to hide.
