A Tale Of Two Protests: One’s A Riot, The Other’s Mostly Peaceful

Remember back in the day when the Associated Press, along with most news outlets, were calling the violence, looting, arson, assault (including against police officers), and other criminal activity “mostly peaceful”? It’s a little different when people are “protesting” COVID authoritarianism

‘Orgy of violence’: Dutch police open fire on rioters

Police opened fire on protesters and seven people were injured in rioting that erupted in downtown Rotterdam around a demonstration against COVID-19 restrictions. The Dutch city’s mayor called it “an orgy of violence.”

Mayor Ahmed Aboutaleb told reporters in the early hours of Saturday morning that “on a number of occasions the police felt it necessary to draw their weapons to defend themselves” as rioters ran rampage through the port city’s central shopping district, setting fires and throwing rocks and fireworks at officers.

“They shot at protesters, people were injured,” Aboutaleb said. He did not have details on the injuries. Police also fired warning shots.

A number of police officers also were injured in the violence and officers arrested dozens of people and expect to arrest more after studying video footage from security cameras, Aboutaleb said.

Photos from the scene showed at least one police car in flames and another with a bicycle slammed through its windshield.

Riot police and a water cannon restored calm after midnight.

You know, it was a riot. Period. Regardless of their intentions, things were bad, really bad. And no one is complaining about the cops being heavy handed, as they were when police attempted to stop the violence in U.S. cities during BLM/Antifa protests. Cops sure didn’t shoot anyone. Or pull out water cannons. The most was tear gas. In a lot of cases the political authorities pulled the police back. Heck, what happens when people are committing acts of violence during “protests” last night?

(NY Post) Protests sprang up in New York and other cities across the country Friday night in response to Kyle Rittenhouse’s acquittal, resulting in at least five arrests and some property damage in Queens, according to the NYPD.

Police tweeted a photo of vandalized vehicles in Queens, including a car with handicap plates that had “F–k you” graffitied on the back in black spray paint.

“The NYPD takes its responsibility to protect the 1st amendment rights of peaceful demonstrators seriously,” the tweet said. “Just as important is the safety of NYers & the protection of property from people breaking the law in the name of protest. As seen tonight in Queens, they will be arrested.”

Could the NYPD give a squishier message?

Queens Councilman Robert Holden told The Post that protestors tore through Crowley Park, and were also “jumping on cars and stealing American flags” on residential streets in Middle Village and Maspeth.

Sure, not committing arson and mayhem like previous BLM/Antifa protests, but, treated quite differently

Nothing says social justice like looting and pillaging, eh? Of course, in Portland they got violent

(KATU) Several individuals dressed in all black with their faces covered attempted to keep a KATU camera crew from recording the events unfolding downtown Friday night after the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office declared a gathering of people a riot.

The individuals demanded the crew stop recording.

The group then attacked the KATU camera operator when the crew asserted their right to record in a public space. A confrontation occurred between the individuals and the TV station’s security guards.

Portland police said deputies declared the riot when people started damaging a gate to the detention center.

Will the DOJ go after these people like they have the 1/6 folks? Anyhow, there were many protests, most which did stay peaceful, just a bunch of people who hate the notion of innocent till proven guilty, burden of proof on the prosecution, and self defense (for Other People). They want The Law to be based more on feelings than hard law, to be able to treat people engaged in Wrongthink differently. That’s how you get articles like one at CNN saying we need to question the law. Because Kyle was found not guilty by a jury after the prosecution could not make their case to support the charges.

    I have no understanding as to why all the knee-grows are so bent out of shape. Kyle and the three people he shot are all white. Why would Burn Loot Murder even care? I thought they loved whites getting killed.

    I watched MSNBC yesterday until I became ill. The TV stations have been populated by the most white hating, racist and angry black (mostly) women they could find. It seems like a competition to see which network can get the filthiest, nastiest white hating knee-gresses in America to represent them. These broads are so offensive they should literally be removed not only from the network but from the nation. Plus, they use a split screen with two or more other like-minded morons who all sit there and continuously nod agreement to all the filth, hate and insults spewed by these harpies. No wonder their ratings are below reruns of football games.

    The left has done yeoman’s work in poisoning the minds of so many blacks and dull-whited whites on so many topics from climate change to Covid to race it’s pathetic. The disgusting display of hate and desire to harm Kyle Rittenhouse for defending himself just because he’s a white guy is amazing.

    Fortunately for Kyle real Americans interested in justice and not revenge were on the jury. Imagine juries filled with BLM supporters. Do you believe they would be just.?

    The Jury timing was just right. Now all the outraged can get their Christmas looting done pre Black Friday.
