As countless videos emerged of black lives matter thugs smashing up property, looting, assaulting reporters and innocent bystanders, and even SHOOTING each other, MSNBC claimed that the ‘protesters’ were peaceful, were hugging each other, and complained that police were reacting too violently.
As Infowars has detailed in a report this morning, footage from the unrest in Charlotte shows rioters stealing and looting cash registers from local businesses, smashing apartment windows and buses, physically attacking reporters and trying to set a photographer on fire, throwing rocks off bridges at passing vehicles, beating up innocent people for being white, attempting to hijack cars and terrify their innocent occupants, and engaging in gun violence against each other.
The situation in Charlotte is nothing short of absolute chaos, with legitimate reporters on the ground comparing the scenes to the West Bank unrest between Israelis and Palestinians.
Fox News reporter Steve Harington, who made that comparison, was relaying the violence he was witnessing.
“Earlier, this started out as peaceful protest. A lot of families, a lot of young children with signs coming out and walking and marching. Now, it’s turned violent. The swearing and looting about 10 feet from me. A souvenir store was just looted. I have seen some cars smashed. The Ritz Carlton smashed out in front. Police trying to establish order with tear gas.”
CNN also reported prominently on the violence and looting, after one of their correspondents, Ed Lavandera, was attacked. Fellow CNN reporter Boris Sanchez, amid debris, tear gas and utter carnage, described the scenes as “totally out of control.”
The scenes of violent mobs marauding around while police resort to using tear gas look like something out of an apocalyptic societal breakdown.
Yet everyone’s favorite black lives matter apologist media network, MSNBC, painted a very different picture.
Host Rachel Maddow and correspondents Gabe Guiterrez and Tammy Leitner repeatedly told viewers that the scene consisted of “a mostly peaceful group of people” with only “some agitators.”
They claimed that the ‘protesters’ were “hugging and they’re being very peaceful”, and even claimed they were “cleaning up trash on the street”.
The ‘reporters’ then suggested that police were being too heavy handed in their response and were arresting those on the scene too violently.
“Well, on this issue, as you’re talking, we just saw a very violent arrest by a number of police officers in heavy-duty riot gear going after an individual protester. They sprung out of the line to go grab somebody specifically and then arrested that person,” Maddow complained while speaking to interim Democratic National Committee chairwoman Donna Brazile.
MSNBC has a history of skewing coverage of black lives matter protests. In the past the network has given air time to BLM advocates who say that the movement is not anti-police, despite numerous videos of such protesters shouting slogans like “When I say ‘Oink, oink’ you say ‘Bang! Bang!’” and “Pigs in a blanket, fry ’em like bacon!”
The network regularly gives airtime to attempting to debunk the violence and criminal activity that occurs at practically every prominent BLM gathering.
