The So-Called Peaceful Protests Destroying Major American Cities

af branco cartoon peaceful protests

If you watch enough mainstream news, you’ll know that protests and riots across the country are definitely peaceful.

C’mon, the news says they’re peaceful, so it’s gotta be true, right?

“Peaceful Protests”

Here’s a mashup of the mainstream media rubes repeating this line over and over and over again. This video was played during the recent hearing with Attorney General William Barr:

Portland Riots Carry On for 2 Months — “Peacefully”

Unfortunately for the knuckleheads in the media, what they say and what’s actually happening aren’t the same.

Independent reporter Andy Ngo has been on the ground in Portland, Ore., for nearly the duration of the ongoing civil conflict in Oregon and posts to Twitter regularly with scenes that are anything but peaceful.

And based on his most recent posts, the “peacefulness” is only getting worse.

Here you can see ANTIFA thugs peacefully kicking a garage door and throwing things at federal officers as they retreat:

A “peaceful” fire is set on the street in Portland:

Here are federal officers cleaning up some of the trash dumped by the federal courthouse in Portland. Sorry, forgot to mention that the trash was tossed peacefully in front of the courthouse:

Peaceful rioters rip off the barricades to a business in downtown Portland. You know how businesses are always putting up wooden barricades in front of their doors and windows when peaceful people are gathering outside …

This is just a clip of some ANTIFA nutjob peacefully trying to lob a firework into the federal courthouse in Portland. It kinda backfired, literally:

And this is just from one night in Portland. So peaceful and serene.

The “Wall of Moms”

To perpetuate this narrative that these ongoing protests are somehow peaceful, the media is now trying to convince everyone that it’s not ANTIFA and other crazed leftist radicals doing all the damage. It’s right-wing extremists and white supremacists.

And when federal agents fire pepper spray into crowds, they’re actually firing on moms and other non-violent protesters.

How convenient. And how very untrue.

Earlier this week, President Donald Trump called the Wall of Moms a scam and that they aren’t in Portland to help protect violent protesters.

    you folks are either badly misinformed or insane. I live in Portland, the “violence” in the protests consists almost entirely of graffitti (!). Yeah, some nut cases lighting fires or throwing a water bottle, about the same as you’d get at almost any large gathering of people outside (like, say, a sports event). But Portland a hotbed of “terrorism”? Don’t make me laugh

            Ok there Canary. I’m a progressive, we are Populists. We’re through. You’re a waste of time. It’s just like John O’Hara said about this area in the 1920’s. This area is scared of change. And you certainly are.

            Who’s scared of change? Just scared of the changes you’re suggesting because you’re a Communist.

            August 2, 2020 at 4:24 pm

            You’re scared of change. That’s why you are ignorant to BASIC facts in an attemt to defend you’re obsolete ideology.

            Democratic Socialism is not communism. We just don’t sacrifice the needs of the many for the wants and desires of the few. It’s illogical to think that the few are more important than the many. In democratic socialism the top 1% just doesn’t horde everything. We pay workers and make sure that even at the bottom of the economic scale your basic needs are taken care so you still have a decent standard of living. Do some research before you open your mouth.

            August 2, 2020 at 9:42 pm

            It’s Democratic Socialism and it most certainly does work like in the Euro countries such as Denmark and Sweden. Germany was a far right country under Hitler and Russia was communist.

          • Canary Commenter

            August 2, 2020 at 11:05 pm

            Maybe you should look up the truth on Sweden. It’s not socialist at all … or Democrat Socialist or whatever other sort of clever Marxist marketing scheme you want to call it. Socialism failed the Swedes and the people dumped it (and quickly). Again, you’re just reading from the AOC playbook.

          • Jason Bourne

            August 2, 2020 at 11:27 pm

            I’ve been to Sweden you haven’t. Our standard living isn’t even close to theirs. They have universal healthcare and also redistribute wealth. Denmark is the better example of what we’re about. That you’re right about.

      Floridian, I’m tired of people like you. You’re the same people who tell me how religious you are. To think Jesus was some fun totin’, healthcare cutting, social security cutting racist is beyond me. Why don’t you read your Bible. Also you tell me how constitutional you are. Obviously, you never read it because if you did you wouldn’t be for Donald Trump. Face it, you’re just a stupid neocon. That’s why you like Trump. His political platform is on a fourth grade level.

      • PTFloridians

        August 2, 2020 at 6:00 pm

        Your just mad that everyone here has a more comprehensive knowledge and understanding of things, in a mature way. You’ll catch on one of these days.
        …oh BTW, I’m not religious and i don’t believe what you said about this jesus guy, I’m not a Neo-Conservative, not racist, and i worked with all skin colors, religious types and languages in prison system, for decades. I’m simply a voter that never liked the political “establishment”, so President Trump is the obvious choice, economically and otherwise. Borders, language, culture…this is America.
        I’m not, and neither is President Trump, on the 4th grade level at anything. He beat the biggest political machine on the planet, and has done a wonderful job thus far.

        Usually, when Leftists can’t debate or discuss, they’ll deflect. You seem to be quite the deflector.
        Also, when Leftists call people with opposing views certain names, like idiot for example, the irony is that they are describing themselves while saying it about another.
        …your choice of screen name (Jason Bourne) seems to describe you well, “an operative, suffering with dissociative amnesia who must figure out who he is…”

    What do you do for a living Jason? Let’s see how you feel when your surreal 3rd world country visions materialize.

    Naive…showing innocent or childlike simplicity and candidness…..
    That’s the boy Jason!
    You’re probably young enough to see what it will be like living in a 3rd world country. So get ready. If you, and all the never Trumpers succeed in destroying the USA I am sure you will feel good about living in a 3rd world country, because that’s what you and the Marxist left will create. I personally don’t think your cause will succeed. Reading what you have posted. I imagine you don’t even KNOW the root of the Antifa and BLM movements are Marxist in nature, and if you do, you don’t know the results of it. Look at Venezuala. You’re just naive and caught up in the rapture. Stupid stupid people. You don’t realize their will only be 2 classes. The rich and the poor. Did you ever read about
    Agenda 2030 and Agenda 2050? Did you….dummie?

    Mike, I’m so impressed with how you regurgitate other people’s bullshit because your a low I.Q., low info type of guy who can’t think for himself. So I’m going to enlighten you.

    We Progressives are for the return of REAL wages. You know, when your money was actually green. See, when you phase in a living wage while cutting the people’s debt by going to a universal healthcare system such as m4a and make colleges free, this means that 75% of our population won’t be cash poor, living paycheck to paycheck and be able to actually participate in the economy. You won’t have to Walmart for everything by default and you will be able to go downtown and support the small businesses of your area. Low wages are not good for small businesses. Low wages are only good for corporations, that’s why they like low wages. So you idiots can call us communists all you want, we know that we’re more capitalistic than you. You live in an anti-capitalist system run by a set of corporate masters who you love to bend over to because you, Frank, Pt and Canary are fucking moons who can’t think for themselves. Join the movement!

      August 3, 2020 at 10:15 pm

      Talk about regurgitating BS…move to Cuba, Sweden, or wherever if you dont like it here…you’re “movement” does nothing but reveal your hatred for America. Your $ won’t mean squat if there are no corporations to work for. Oh, i guess that works too, universal basic income for lazy bums that smoke, drink and play video games all day, and free healthcare when you’re pale, weak and mentally unstable to do anything. What a waste…you’re more valuable than that.

      Seems you may not be qualified to find a salary to fit your lifestyle Jason. It takes time and effort. Try to focus your anger on investing in yourself for the long haul, and you too may make wages you feel you need, some day. In the meantime, you are free to give to those you feel are being ripped off by corporate masters.

      Frank, this isn’t about me. I’m not in medical bankruptcy, I don’t have student loan debt and I get paid pretty decently. And no, I’m not unemployed due to the coronavirus and need unemployment either. The system is in decay and people are struggling to stay alive. Fascism is destroying the country and people can’t afford to lose their healthcare or social security. We live in the richest country of all time but can’t afford anything. Now, we can’t even afford the post office. Obviously BULlSHIT, Obviously, we are being ripped off by a fascist President and the Grand ol Party. It’s not all about me and it’s certainly not all about you either. People matter. Are lives have value.

        I apologize for my horrible spelling. I always fuck up little words like Are and Our. English was never my strong suit.

        • Frank

          August 4, 2020 at 9:34 am

          I don’t mind the spelling, but the profanity surely isn’t needed. Our country is the 2nd largest welfare nation per-capita in the world. The US spends wayyyyy more than it should. You could certainly argue too much is spent here rather than there. But the bottom line is, too much is spent and too few are paying federal income taxes (the rich pay by far the most).

          Federal spending has only risen since Trump has been in office. Not sure exactly who is getting ripped off by the huge sums of money the federal gov’t is doling out.

          If you see people around you struggling to stay alive, help them. It’s much easier to blame Trump though. And it’s always easier to spend other people’s money. I get that. It would be nice if these angry liberal keyboard warriors spent a teeny bit of their time helping those they say are “dying” because of Trump, rather than rant nonsense and profanity.

          Nobody lost their Social Security that I am aware of. Are people being turned away from healthcare at hospitals and clinics? Maybe if we go full socialism.

          Fascism died after WWII. What you are promoting is the old Socialist movement from like 1915 – 1930’s. It died in Eastern Europe in 1989-91. There are less people in poverty today than ever in human history. But you would have us think people are dying in droves all around us due to poverty.

          You seem like an intelligent young man, but a victim of left wing educators.
