I’ve literally been saying for years that reporters assigned to DC Echochamber news outlets have mischaracterized people’s actions. I’ve even left open the possibility that these mischaracterizations might’ve been intentional. This Greg Gutfeld monologue cuts to the heart of the matter. In his monologue, Gutfeld notes that “this last weekend we saw countless reporters in Hamburg and elsewhere refer to thuggish clans in black disguises as protesters. These were people destroying property and harming those trying to protect and serve the community. We watched cars burn, businesses looted, and police injured by disguised fascists. And we listened to them being referred to as ‘protesters.'”

When I picture protesters, I picture Martin Luther King staging a peaceful protest. What comes to mind when I see cars burning, I think of the race riots of the late 60s and early 70s. The mask-wearing thugs in Hamburg remind me more of the latter than the former.

It’s time we stopped calling the people in Ferguson, Baltimore and Minneapolis protesters. In Minneapolis, Black Lives Matter activists threw concrete blocks at police officers from a bridge spanning I-94. That isn’t what protesters do. It’s what rioters do. Also in Minneapolis, rioters chanted “pigs in a blanket, fry them like bacon.” Again, that’s what rioters do. That isn’t what protesters do.

Then there’s the riot in NYC where the rioters chanted “What do we want? Dead cops. When do we want them? Now.”

That’s before talking about the “hands up, don’t shoot” myth from Ferguson, MO and the riots in Baltimore that were fueled by race hustlers like Al Sharpton. It’s time we stopped thinking of these thugs as civil rights demonstrators. They’re nothing of the sort. They’re low-life street thugs, nothing more.

Gutfeld continued with this:

One CNN headline:
“G20 protesters set street fires, loot stores.”
“Protesters.” No, they’re criminal gangs.
“Street fires.” Otherwise known as “Arson.”

Then he really nailed the violent lefties:

When historians look back at this era, and the decline of the West, the media’s fingerprints will be all over the crime scene. They happily place every act within the identity politic paradigm – paving the road for the lawlessness seen in Hamburg (and elsewhere).

The left still deserves tons of criticism but no more than the media who stoke the tension by ignoring the truth. Then there’s this:

Leftism follows the same script. If your ideas cannot survive debate, what do you do? You advocate for force. Progressivism requires chaotic, violent rage to ensure their toxic ideas persist.

The chance that the MSM will stop following this script is virtually nonexistent. The only option thoughtful people have is to gather their information through non-traditional sources. Right now, that’s people’s best option.
