Viewers demanded to know why Newt Gingrich was told to not talk about Soros

Fox News host Harris Faulkner addressed the social media outrage over a bizarre moment when one of their guests appeared to be barred from speaking about George Soros.

Faulkner denied the show had censored speech in a statement made on air on Thursday.

“So, we had a little incident on the show yesterday that was not smooth,” said Faulkner.

“And while I was leading that segment we had interruptions and I sat silently while all of that played out, also not ideal. Our guest former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, who is beloved and needed to be allowed to speak with the openness and respect that this show is all about, was interrupted,” she explained.

“Do we debate with fire here? Yes! But we must also give each other the space to express ourselves. As the only original member of this six-year-old amazing daytime ride known as Outnumbered— I especially want to rock and roll with every voice and perspective at the table,” Faulkner said.

“We don’t censor on this show,” she concluded. “And that’s why we are winning weekdays at noon!”

Here’s what happened

Faulkner and her co-host Melissa Francis faced scathing criticism on Wednesday from viewers who believed that they had banned criticism of left-wing billionaire financier George Soros.

Gingrich pointed out, correctly, that Soros had helped fund left-wing organizations that aided many district attorneys in getting into power to soften law enforcement policies.

“Progressive district attorneys are anti-police, pro-criminal, and overwhelmingly elected with George Soros’s money. And they are a major cause of the violence we are seeing because they keep putting the violent criminals back on the street,” said Gingrich.
“I’m not sure we need to bring George Soros into this,” interrupted Francis.

Faulkner moved on after a very awkward and tense moment of silence between the panelists.

Some critics of the incident pointed out that many of the facts Gingrich listed about Soros’ meddling in law enforcement had been reported by Fox News itself, most notably in July.

On her official Twitter account, Faulkner retweeted a message on Thursday that reiterated that she did not apologize for the incident, but simply explained what happened to the viewers.

Here’s the video of Faulker’s comments:

So let’s get this straight – based on the recommendation of doctors Fauci and Birx the US shut down the entire economy based on 9,000 American deaths due entirely to the China coronavirus?
We were first to report that the Director General of the WHO on March 3, 2020 created panic with his highly flawed statement that the coronavirus had a 3.4% mortality rate and he compared this to the seasonal flue estimates of less than 1% mortality.

This statement caused a global panic. However, we knew this was inaccurate at the time and we wrote about it on March 17, 2020. Here is the video of Dr. Ghebreyesus’s remarks.

The WHO leader’s coronavirus death rate number of 3.4% was false and we proved this in our post at the time.

The Gateway Pundit reported, that the coronavirus fatality rate reported by the liberal mainstream media was completely inaccurate and the actual rate more typical to a seasonal flu – the media was lying again.

Doctors Fauci and Birx next pushed ridiculous and highly exaggerated mortality rates related to the coronavirus:

** Dr. Tony Fauci and Dr. Deborah Birx used the Imperial College Model to persuade President Trump to lock down the ENTIRE US ECONOMY.
** The fraudulent model predicted 2.2 million American deaths from the coronavirus pandemic
** The authors of the Imperial College Model shared their findings with the White House Coronavirus task force in early March
** Dr. Fauci and Dr. Birx then met with President Trump privately and urged him to shut down the US economy and destroy the record Trump economy based on this model

But the Imperial College model Dr. Fauci and Dr. Birx pushed was garbage and they recommended the destruction of the US economy using this completely flawed model.

Today we now have empirical evidence that the WHO, Dr. Fauci and Dr. Birx were all wrong. They were charlatans. They lied to the American people.

The CDC updated their numbers in August to show that only 6% of all coronavirus deaths were completely due to the coronavirus alone.

The rest of the deaths pinned to the China coronavirus are attributed to individuals who had other serious issues going on.

Also, most of the deaths are very old Americans with co-morbidities.

From the CDC.

And now a case study of death certificate data at the Center for Evidence Based Medicine out of England shows that false coronavirus mortality numbers have risen to 29% of the total reported mortality numbers in the last 8 weeks.

Via Dr. Andrew Bostom.

From the CEBM.net report:

World Health Organisation guidelines state that “COVID-19 should be recorded on the medical certificate of cause of death for ALL decedents where the disease, or is assumed to have caused, or contributed to death i.e. COVID-19 is the underlying cause of death”. Such an example would be someone who has developed pneumonia as a result of COVID-19, dies from acute respiratory distress. Alternatively, COVID-19 may be present on the death certificate as a significant condition contributing to death but not the underlying cause. These guidelines are clear that in such cases these deaths “are not deaths due to COVID-19 and should not be certified as such.”

We set out to determine how many COVID-19 deaths are were COVID-19 is the underlying cause and in how COVID-19 is not considered as the underlying cause, using Public Health England (PHE) weekly reports on excess mortality, published since the week ending 3 July 2020.

This allowed us to address the question of whether COVID-19 is the underlying cause of death when it appears on the death certificate.

What did we find

While we found that roughly one in thirteen (7.8%) deaths with COVID-19 on the death certificate did not have the disease as the underlying cause of death, this proportion has risen substantially to 29% (nearly a third) for the last eight weeks of reporting.

Despite the left’s constant demand that Americans vote by mail this election, Joe Biden was seen in Delaware, casting his vote early and in-person. When asked about why he was voting in person, it had something to do with him being “busy.” But when he tried to explain what he had on the docket for the day, he came up empty.

For months, Democrats pushed to acquire funding to pass universal vote-by-mail in every state. Nancy Pelosi and others claimed that COVID made it too dangerous for Americans to appear at the polling place. But their efforts to secure billions to shore up the USPS’s pathetic infrastructure failed, as news revealed that voting by mail was far from safe.

Add to that the fact that most states allow people to safely go to the grocery store, what danger is it for Americans to wait in lines to vote?

The left’s argument that mail-in voting is the only way got another blow, thanks to their candidate Joe Biden. Because despite all their doom-and-gloom, the former vice president was seen voting early, in person.

Joe Biden decided to vote the old fashioned way on Monday: by casting his ballot in person.

The Democrat nominee for president voted early at a polling location in Delaware.

Joe and Jill Biden visited the New Castle County Board of Elections to cast their ballots. Voters have the option to make an appointment and appear in person, or send their vote through the mail. [Source: Breitbart]

So much for the argument that voting by mail is dangerous, eh Nancy? If a man in his late seventies has no problem casting his ballot in person, why should anyone else?

Unless this is another instance where Democrats can break the rules, because they are better than the rest of us? As when Pelosi went to a salon, breaking lockdown rules? (We still haven’t forgotten, Nance!)

What’s even more troubling—though not surprising—is how Biden responded when asked why he was voting early.
Biden told reporters as he exited the building that he voted early because he’s going to be traveling tomorrow — 49 days before the election.

“You guys voted early today?” a reporter asked.

“Because I’m going to be in— where am I tomorrow? I’m in— ?” Biden said, looking for assistance.

“We’re traveling,” Jill Biden jumped in.

“Florida,” a staffer responded.

“I’m traveling tomorrow,” Biden said. [Source: Breitbart]

Uh… what? Joe said he’s voting early because he was traveling the next day? He does know that Election Day is November 3, right? There’s no reason to vote early… if you had plans 48 days before the election.

What’s even weirder is how he wasn’t even sure how to answer. As usual, his wife (i.e.: caretaker) and his campaign staff (i.e.: his overlords) had to bail him out.

Something tells me a man running for president should know his schedule better, right? If a reporter asked what Trump was doing tomorrow, don’t you expect him to know right away? Sure, he might not have the itinerary memorized, but he wouldn’t leave you with a bunch of “Uh. I’m going to be in… where am I?”

Even when trying to stump for early voting, the man can’t help but expose his crumbling mental faculties.

But I’m sure the Democrats were just pleased to see Biden prove that voting in person is perfectly safe. This proves there is absolutely zero reason to trust your vote to the whims of the post office.

I mean, I’m still waiting for Christmas cards from 2019—why would I let them handle by Constitutional right to vote?

Senate Republicans continue their own investigation into the origins of the FBI’s counterintelligence investigation into whether President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign conspired with the Russian government to steal the election.

As Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team eventually concluded, the Trump campaign did not collude with Russia, and a subsequent Inspector General report found that the FBI omitted evidence that would have called into question the years long investigation into the Trump administration as part of “Crossfire Hurricane.” Following the IG report, Senate Republicans and U.S. Attorney General William Barr launched separate investigations into the origins of the false collusion narrative.

As part of the Senate’s investigation, ex-FBI Director James Comey will testify on September 30. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, told Fox News host Sean Hannity Wednesday night that Comey had agreed to testify, while Mueller said he didn’t have enough time.

“The day of reckoning is upon us when it comes to Crossfire Hurricane,” Graham said.

The Daily Caller’s Chuck Ross reported that the committee would also interview the two FBI employees who spoke with the primary source for Christopher Steele’s dossier, which was used as the basis for the investigation into the Trump campaign. The primary source, Russia analyst Igor Danchenko, informed the FBI and the Justice Department in January 2017 that Steele embellished parts of his dossier, but the FBI didn’t include this information when applying for a FISA warrant to surveil Trump campaign aide Carter Page.

Graham’s decision to interview the two FBI employees is a chance, he told Hannity, to find out which FBI agents knew about what Danchenko said during his interviews that would undermine the investigation.

“Now who did the intel analyst and the case agent tell?” Graham said. “We’re going to talk to them in the next week to 10 days.”

More from Ross:

The case agent has been identified as Steven Somma, a veteran counterintelligence investigator in the FBI’s New York Field Office. Somma was involved in several aspects of Crossfire Hurricane.

In addition to interviewing Danchenko, he was the FBI handler for Stefan Halper, a confidential source who secretly recorded Carter Page and George Papadopoulos, another Trump campaign aide.

The IG report said Somma, who is referred to as “Case Agent 1” in the report, was the first FBI investigator to propose applying for a FISA warrant against Page.

As The Daily Wire previously reported, the IG report found 17 “inaccuracies and omissions” in the FBI’s FISA warrants against Carter Page, far higher than were found in dozens of other warrant requests as part of a random search conducted by the IG.

Among the omissions were information pertaining to Page’s past known communications with Russian officials. An FBI lawyer who is no longer with the bureau pleaded guilty to falsifying an email to remove the fact that the CIA told the FBI Page had worked with the agency.

Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden repeatedly refused to call China an “opponent” on Thursday when he was pressed multiple times by CNN anchor Anderson Cooper.

Cooper and Biden had the following exchange where Biden repeatedly refused to call China an “opponent”:

Cooper: Do you view China as an opponent? Because the president says you’ve been too cozy with China, too accepting of them in the international community.

Biden: I, I’m not the guy, look, China, we now have a larger trade deficit with China than we’ve ever had with China and in our administration when the World Trade Organization he keeps going on about, just ruled that his trade policy violate the World Trade Organ–we sued, we went to the World Trade Organization 16 times.

Cooper: Do you view China as an opponent?

Biden: I view China as a competitor. A serious competitor. That’s why I think we have to strengthen our relationships and our alliances in Asia.

WATCH:

Former Acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell responded by writing on Twitter: “China wants Biden to win. So he won’t criticize them. This is a scandal.”

National Counterintelligence and Security Center (NCSC) Director William Evanina said in a statement last month the following about China as it pertains to foreign nations looking to interfere with U.S. elections this fall:

We assess that China prefers that President Trump – whom Beijing sees as unpredictable – does not win reelection. China has been expanding its influence efforts ahead of November 2020 to shape the policy environment in the United States, pressure political figures it views as opposed to China’s interests, and deflect and counter criticism of China. Although China will continue to weigh the risks and benefits of aggressive action, its public rhetoric over the past few months has grown increasingly critical of the current Administration’s COVID-19 response, closure of China’s Houston Consulate, and actions on other issues. For example, it has harshly criticized the Administration’s statements and actions on Hong Kong, TikTok, the legal status of the South China Sea, and China’s efforts to dominate the 5G market. Beijing recognizes that all of these efforts might affect the presidential race.

A week later, National Security Adviser Robert O’Brien warned that China was “trying to elect Joe Biden” and that China had ” the most sophisticated global influence programs and strategies and abilities and capabilities in the world.”

Barr told CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer that China was more aggressive and assertive than Russia in terms of trying to interfere in U.S. elections, according to U.S. intelligence.

The NCSC added the following about Russia and Iran, which were the top two other nations that were deemed to be a threat in the upcoming U.S. elections:

RUSSIA – We assess that Russia is using a range of measures to primarily denigrate former Vice President Biden and what it sees as an anti-Russia “establishment.” This is consistent with Moscow’s public criticism of him when he was Vice President for his role in the Obama Administration’s policies on Ukraine and its support for the anti-Putin opposition inside Russia. For example, pro-Russia Ukrainian parliamentarian Andriy Derkach is spreading claims about corruption – including through publicizing leaked phone calls – to undermine former Vice President Biden’s candidacy and the Democratic Party. Some Kremlin-linked actors are also seeking to boost President Trump’s candidacy on social media and Russian television.
IRAN – We assess that Iran seeks to undermine U.S. democratic institutions, President Trump, and to divide the country in advance of the 2020 elections. Iran’s efforts along these lines probably will focus on on-line influence, such as spreading disinformation on social media and recirculating anti-U.S. content. Tehran’s motivation to conduct such activities is, in part, driven by a perception that President Trump’s reelection would result in a continuation of U.S. pressure on Iran in an effort to foment regime change.

After a handful of employees quit so they could speak out about Facebook’s insufficient internal ‘woke’-ness, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has finally decided how he’s going to handle what has been described as an internal rebellion.

The surge of anti-management sentiment within the company was likely provoked by accusations, spread by the mainstream press, about Facebook’s alleged role in spreading “Russian” disinformation to help sway the election to President Trump, a narrative that the New Yorker – a publication that’s almost revered by American intellectuals – quietly admitted was b***s*** just a few days ago.

Though Facebook has, like other social media companies, picked on conservatives, there’s little question that conservative voices are given more space on the company’s platform. That’s not wrong; it’s simply in keeping with American principles about freedom of the press.

Zuck showed surprising resoluteness in handling these accusations, until recently, when he finally caved, ordering a so ineffective-it’s-almost-humorous “ban” on new political ads during the final week of campaign season.

And now, the company has informed employees in a memo that was also promptly leaked to the press, that it has decided on a new strategy for handling internal dissent. Because while the US is governed by the Constitution, inside Facebook, Zuck calls the shots. And he’s decided that he will essentially silence all discussion about “sensitive” topics on the company’s internal messaging system, CNBC reports.

Ironically, Zuckerberg reportedly described these new rules, which will explicitly identify where conversations about certain topics can be held, as giving the company’s employees more freedom, not less. Facebook is couching this as giving employees “the option” of joining certain debates, rather than have them thrust into their feeds.

Even when these conversations are held, they will be “carefully monitored”.

“We deeply value expression and open discussion. What we’ve heard from our employees is that they want the option to join debates on social and political issues rather than see them unexpectedly in their work feed,” said Facebook Spokesman Joe Osborne to CNBC. “We’re updating our employee policies and work tools to ensure our culture remains respectful and inclusive.”

From now on, inside Facebook so-called “tense conversations” – as Zuckerberg himself described them – will simply not be held. Then, employees won’t have anything to get angry about.

Because that’s how we do things in contemporary America.

The news comes as Bloomberg’s Businessweek publishes a profile of Zuckerberg essentially lampooning him for Facebook’s alleged role in spreading “disinformation”.

The organizing groups behind the White House “siege” that is supposed to last until Election Day suffered a set back on the first day as they canceled the first event related to the protest.

Minutes before the “General Assembly” was supposed to convene in Lafayette Square at noon, Twitter accounts announced the meeting was canceled due to the groups receiving “MANY threats of death and violence from Trump supporters and white nationalists.”

NOTICE TO ALL PROTESTERS: After intensive talks and multiple considerations, we’ve decided to cancel the General Assembly scheduled for 12 noon in Lafayette Square. We received MANY threats of death and violence from Trump supporters and white nationalists. #Safety @Adbusters

— DC General Assembly (@DCAssemble) September 17, 2020

THE STATE OF OUR NATION: It is a dark day in the United States. Between the threat of violence from White Nationalists and Trump supporters, protesters have to face the threat of violence from police as well. This is NOT a free country. #Shame @Adbusters @OccupyWallStNYC

— DC General Assembly (@DCAssemble) September 17, 2020

THE THREAT OF VIOLENCE: Its very real for protesters in Trump’s America, the hypocrisy of his position leaves worlds to be desired. Good people are harassed and intimidated by thugs who care NOTHING for democracy or truth. #Shame #Fascism #WhiteNationalism @realDonaldTrump

— DC General Assembly (@DCAssemble) September 17, 2020

Despite the setback, it appears the organizers still plan on conducting some form of protests, but it appears to be heavily scaled back from what was being originally advertised.

We are still organizing to occupy and feed the homeless of Washington DC this evening. Currently in Lafayette Square standing with core group of peaceful warriors. Could use help feeding as many people as we can. $reoccupy on CashApp. #FoodNotHate #Service @Adbusters

— DC General Assembly (@DCAssemble) September 17, 2020

The “siege” was being advertised as a spiritual successor to the Occupy Wall Street protests in 2011:

“It’s time again for dramatic, decisive action. Which is why, on September 17th, in the original and enduring spirit of Occupy, we and tens of thousands of our fellow citizens will stream into Lafayette Square, in Washington. D.C.

“We will lay siege to the White House. And we will sustain it for exactly fifty days. This is the #WhiteHouseSiege.

“A siege only works if it is sustained. We witnessed this — the multiplying power of a strategic occupation — nine years ago. You dig in, hold your ground, and the tension accumulates, amplifies, goes global.”

The House Freedom Caucus, a group of GOP Congresspersons have attempted to push Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy to make a procedural move to replace Nancy Pelosi as Speaker before the upcoming 2020 Presidential Election.

The Freedom Caucus, which has played an integral role in the past in the fights for the Speakership, is attempting to tie moderate democrats in swing districts to the controversial Speaker, who has drawn quite a bit of criticism of late for her “rules for thee, but not for me” attitude when it comes to her style of leadership.

Politico reports:

“House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy is the only GOP member who can offer a “motion to vacate the chair” and force a floor vote on whether Pelosi can retain the speaker’s gavel, according to House rules implemented at the start of this Congress. McCarthy apparently has not yet decided whether he will support the insurgent effort. But McCarthy did agree to hold a GOP conference meeting next Tuesday to discuss the idea, according to Republican sources — a sign that he is at least giving serious consideration to deploying the procedural weapon.”

Should Republicans be able to make such a move, it would require that all members vote in support or opposition of the current Speaker. Unfortunately, though Progressive members of the House have motioned opposition to Pelosi in the past, it is unlikely that they will divorce themselves from the Speaker during the election season. Such a split could cause significant waves in the unity the Democrats have coalesced for November.

Forcing moderate democrats in swing districts to supporting Pelosi could make for an advantage for their Republican challengers in those districts. According to RCP and the RCP Average, Pelosi only has a 37.6% approval rating, below that of President Donald Trump. Pelosi remains more popular amongst voters than either Senator Majority Leader Mitch McConnell or Senator Minority Leader Chuck Schumer. Should moderate Dems have to take a position of support for the Speaker and commit to a vote, challengers could immediately use that vote as a point for media and mail hits on the incumbents.

While this is a long-shot bid, should McCarthy agree to the vote, it should make for some interesting fireworks in the House for a few days.

A fund created to bail out rioters in Minneapolis which was promoted by Democratic Vice Presidential candidate Kamala Harris used its funds to free a man who sexually molested a child – and Harris is silent.

Timothy Wayne Columbus, a 36-year-old-man, is charged with first-degree criminal sexual conduct for allegedly penetrating a girl in 2015 when she was about 8 years old.

The arrest warrant in the case states that the girl Columbus allegedly assaulted lived with her grandmother, who regularly spent time with her friend “Tim,” while the girl was seven and eight years old. When the girl was about eight, the victim told police, “‘Tim’ laid her on her couch and held her down as he unbuckled his pants and then pulled down her pants. Victim stated he then ‘put his thing inside me.'”

The warrant continues: “Victim states ‘Tim’ told her not to tell anyone and continued to penetrate her. Victim did not tell anyone what happened at the time but years later told a family member.”

The warrant also says that the grandmother said she has seen Columbus tell the girl “This is our secret” at one point and that the grandmother suspected Columbus had hurt the girl in some way. The girl’s mother said, ‘she learned years later ‘something happened.'”

A warrant was issued for his arrest on June 25. But he was later bailed out of jail and according to a court document, filed to have his bail money returned to the Minnesota Freedom Fund.

The maximum sentence for the crimes Columbus is accused of is 30 years in prison. Columbus denied the allegations to police.

In Columbus’ case, bail was set at $75,000 for conditional release and $300,000 for unconditional release. The document on which Columbus requests his bail money be returned to the fund does not indicate the amount. But a July 1 order recorded on the Minnesota courts website indicates that Judge Tamara Garcia ordered Columbus’ conditional release.

The fund which bailed out this alleged child rapist was promoted by Harris on Twitter on June 1st when she tweeted, “If you’re able to, chip in now to the @MNFreedomFund to help post bail for those protesting on the ground in Minnesota.”

The Minnesota Freedom Fund also received donations from Biden campaign staffers who bragged to social media about supporting the cause which was used to bail out further criminals such as a man accused of assaulting a 71-year-old woman while burglarizing her home, and another man who stomped on a victim in the streets as he robbed them.

Republicans and the Trump campaign have torn into the Biden campaign over their donations and vocal support to the fund responsible for bailing out countless violent rioters and other even more dangerous criminals.

“Joe Biden and Kamala Harris have to answer for why they supported a group that helped a man accused of sexually penetrating a child,” Republican National Committee Rapid Response Director Steve Guest said Thursday.

Black Lives Matter has been responsible for the lion’s share of destruction, violence, and mayhem this year and an independent research group now has the numbers to prove it.

The Armed Conflict Location and Event Data Project (ACLED), a nonprofit organization with a focus on global conflict, collected data over the summer supported by Princeton University. As the Federalist’s Joy Pullman reported, ACLED found that of the hundreds of riots that occurred this year, 95 percent were found to have perpetrators that that had an affiliation with Black Lives Matter:

Of the 633 incidents coded as riots, 88 percent are recorded as involving Black Lives Matter activists. Data for 51 incidents lack information about the perpetrators’ identities. BLM activists were involved in 95 percent of the riots for which there is information about the perpetrators’ affiliation.

Early estimates from insurance agencies say the cost of this summer’s rioting will set a record surpassing that of the 1992 Rodney King riots, which cost an inflation-adjusted $1.2 billion. Much of that will be paid by taxpayers in the form of overtime and hazard pay for police and EMTs, emergency room visits, destruction of public property, and more. Of course, rioters are inflicting these costs during a time governments, and the people who fund them, have fewer resources due to coronavirus shutdowns and pent-up entitlement obligations.

So not only is Black Lives Matter central to the destruction you’ve seen this year, it’s also costing us, the taxpayer, an exorbitant amount of money to fix.

The riots occurred most in places such as Portland, Oregon, and New York City, but riots also occurred across the country including Kentucky, North Carolina, Colorado, and Texas. Pullman notes that 47 states have had riots occur in their cities this year.

Pullman noted the report does try to blame law enforcement on the escalation of criminal behavior on several occasions:

A report accompanying the data project, however, reads like an upscale attempt to blame the police for criminals’ decision to steal, kill, and destroy. Several times the report explicitly does so, such as here: “Although federal authorities were purportedly deployed to keep the peace, the move appears to have re-escalated tensions. Prior to the deployment, over 83% of demonstrations in Oregon were non-violent. Post-deployment, the percentage of violent demonstrations has risen from under 17% to over 42% (see graph below), suggesting that the federal response has only aggravated unrest.”

This is a logical fallacy called post hoc, ergo propter hoc: Because one thing happened after another, the first thing caused the second. It’s just plain false. In science, this error is described as the difference between correlation and causation. Social scientists ought to be aware of and refrain from employing it, yet these did not.

The cause of violence is not the police. It is not poverty. It is not one’s race. To say so is in fact a smear against poor people and people of the racial group identified. The cause of violence is the people who have chosen to be violent.

Pullman is correct here.

The choice to destroy is up to the destroyer. If these protests were the “peaceful” kind they’re promoted to be then there would be no “riot.” Police have shown up to other protests that retained their peacefulness and there was no police action that was needed because the protest retained its peacefulness.

The question to ask here is why Black Lives Matter is so tied to the riots while other peaceful protests don’t seem to have trouble with police at all. We can’t boil it down to race since protests contain people from all walks of life. Black Lives Matter, in particular, seems to have an overwhelmingly white showing despite the protest supposedly being centered around black Americans.

According to Pew Research, 46 percent of Black Lives Matter protesters are white. Compare that to the 17 percent that are black.

The only thing it can be chalked up to is the fact that Black Lives Matter is actively and openly violent. Antifa, a marxist organization tied to Black Lives Matter, promotes violence openly. As such, police are going to do their jobs and try to stop them, which is a large part of why BLM wants police defunded across America. They’d rather not be interrupted.

Regardless, there’s no question at this point that Black Lives Matter is an organization bent on bullying, destruction, and supremacy. It preys on Americans. It certainly doesn’t help them.
