While Democrat lawmakers like Rep. Ilhan Omar (MN) demand that police forces across America are disbanded or defunded, the media backs them with glowing articles about “peaceful protests,” while ignoring the obscene violence and hatred by innocent Americans who only want #Justice4GeorgeFloyd.
In Riverside, CA, the local Press-Enterprise reported on the “peaceful” protests – At least 50 protesters, standing 6 feet apart in a socially distanced chain, lined both sides of Tyler Street in Riverside Saturday, May 30, to call for justice after the killing of George Floyd.
They called for justice and a recognition that black lives matter after Floyd was killed in Minneapolis after a white officer pressed a knee into his neck while taking him into custody.
Porsha Harris, 27, of Riverside, was at the protest, which was loud but free of violence as of early afternoon.
“We want justice,” Harris said. “Police officers think they can get away with anything they want. The whole world needs to hear the message.”
Protesters appeared to be mostly in their 20s and include people who are black, white, and Latino, with the vast majority wearing masks.
Protesters chanted “No justice, no peace” as cars roll by, many honking their horns. The protesters react with whoops and shouts.
Riverside police say they are aware of this protest. Typically, the department gives protesters their space but does monitor such rallies. There was no obvious police presence at the rally as of early afternoon.
Meanwhile, in Riverside, CA, a video that’s going viral on social media shows a very different story. The video, posted by Blaze TVE reporter Elijah Schaffer, shows a white man and what appears to be a Hispanic man being beaten unconscious and curb-stomped on the streets by a violent mob of young black men, while a BLM protester stands by holding an, “I Can’t Breathe!” sign.

Is it weird that the media missed this video, or did they choose to ignore it because it doesn’t fit their narrative?
