NPR Seems Upset About “Protesters” Getting Run Over

See, this is all your fault

Vehicle Attacks Rise As Extremists Target Protesters

Right-wing extremists are turning cars into weapons, with reports of 50 vehicle-ramming incidents since protests against police violence erupted nationwide in late May.

At least 18 are categorized as deliberate attacks; another two dozen are unclear as to motivation or are still under investigation, according to a count released Friday by Ari Weil, a terrorism researcher at the University of Chicago’s Chicago Project on Security and Threats. Weil has tracked vehicle ramming attacks, or VRAs, since protests began.

The 20 people facing prosecution in the rammings include a state leader of the Virginia Ku Klux Klan, as well as a California man who was charged with attempted murder after antagonizing protesters and then driving into them, striking a teenage girl. Video footage of some attacks shows drivers yelling at or threatening Black Lives Matter protesters before hitting the gas.

Yes, some are intentionally doing this, putting themselves in situations where this is self defense. But, aren’t the roads open to all? Perhaps Democrats and NPR should be taking the Democrats to task for inventing the KKK, and, weird, isn’t California a Progressive Utopia?

From May 27 to June 17, Weil recorded at least 50 vehicle ramming attacks nationwide. Of those, five were by law enforcement and 45 by civilians. At least 18 of the civilian incidents involved malice and another 23 remain unclear as to motive, according to Weil’s analysis of police and court records, as well as news reports. The bulk of the attacks occurred in the first 14 days of protests.

So, cops trying to escape from unhinged, violent mobs hating on police. The 23 “unclear”? Check the photo at NPR

Now watch the video

These are not protesters. They are a mob. A gang. Criminals. They were the aggressors. Seriously, if you are driving around minding your own business and these punks surround you, what do you do? Let them destroy your car? Yank you out of the car and beat you senseless? That’s happened. Or, do you run them over to escape? Perhaps NPR should be concerned with these “protesters” intentionally putting people’s lives in danger, intimidating them, assaulting them. A mob comes near me, I’m going. Sucks to be you if you get hurt, you shouldn’t have been the aggressor. I’m going to worry more about the damage to my car.

Oh, and when you get run over? Don’t call 911. You want to defund the police.

More: NPR has since changed their photo, tweeting out: Note: A previous version of this post and story included a photo of a protester being struck by a car in Louisville, Kentucky. The photo, chosen by editors, does not appear to be an example of the assaults described in the story, and has been replaced.

They’re now using this one

Good news: that photo is from the Charlottesville protests. You know, from 3 years ago. So, is meaningless for the claim of 50 incidents over the past few weeks.

    I believe the phrase is, “Don’t do the crime if you can’t do the time”.</i

    These animals are getting what they deserve.

    In the immortal words of William Tecumseh Sherman, “The more we kill today, the fewer we have to kill tomorrow”.

    Why are these “protesters” putting themselves in harm’s way if they don’t expect to risk harm?

    Maybe if they weren’t out playing in traffic, they wouldn’t get run over.

  3. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    Standing in the street, impeding traffic, is illegal. So is deliberately running over some one, even someone illegally impeding traffic.

    One of these things is not like the other. White supremacist James Fields Jr is serving life sentences + 419 yrs as evidence of this.

      So is pulling the occupants of a vehicle from said vehicle to beat them to death. However, running over some one illegally impeding traffic with the intent of murdering the driver of said vehicle is self defense.
