The Peaceful Protestor Propaganda Big Lie by Larry C Johnson

Larry Johnson-5x7

If you have dared to watch any of the cable news shows, the vast majority keep pushing the story line that the people taking to the streets across the United States are "peaceful protestors." One of the leaders of this delusional madness is New York City Mayor, Bill DeBlasio, who made the following comment about the violence sweeping through his city:

Mayor Bill de Blasio rejected criticism that the police force had failed to ensure public safety. “There were peaceful protesters who rejected the violent elements and forced them out of protests,” De Blasio said. “That ultimately is the big story here.”

Here are a smattering of incidents from the last four days. You tell me–Peaceful?

St. Louis— One of the people murdered last night was a retired St. Louis City Captain. He was murdered by looters at a pawnshop. He was the type of brother that would’ve given his life to save them if he had to.

St. Louis— A 7-11 store located at 201 N. 17th St. in St. Louis was looted and set ablaze by peaceful protesters Monday night who then lay down in the street to prevent firetrucks from reaching the store to put out the fire. The protesters also pushed trash cans into the street to block the firetrucks.

St. Louis— Cops come under fire during protest in St. Louis; at least 4 officers were shot in the gun battle & the scene remains active.

Minnesota—A protester from Chicago filmed himself handing out bombs to “peaceful” Minnesota protesters who then threw the devices at police.

Philadelphia— Philly Gun Store Owner Blasts Would Be Thief with AR-15 During Attempted Looting.

Philadelphia— 24-Year-Old Philly Looter Killed While Trying to Blow Up ATM.

New York City— Police officers in New York City were beaten and run over by a car in three separate attacks while upstate in Buffalo a car plowed through officers in the street.

New York City— After supporting Black Lives Matter, Nike on 5th Avenue in New York got cleared out by looters. Nike lectured America on racism after a Minneapolis police officer murdered George Floyd.

Seattle— On the fourth night of protests-turned-riots, the same verse was repeating in Seattle, where things got out of hand, police declared a riot, and used explosives and tear gas to break up the crowds. NBC reporter Jo Ling Kent, complete with gas mask was hit with what looks to be firework, launched from one of the antifa terrorists. And right before she went live it appeared as though rioters were trying to disable her equipment. You can one woman (?) shrieking “YOU SORRY BITCH!”

Los Angeles— L.A. rioters decided to mess with the wrong block during their rampage on Sunday. One rioter, in specific, decided to smash out the windows in a truck. That truck happened to be owned by NBA guard J.R. Smith, who bolted out of his house to confront the scumbag. Smith proceeded to kick the crap out of the thug white kid, and threw a few punches for good measure.

Omaha— A bar owner shot a protester on Saturday night after the mob came for him and his business. The incident was caught on video. You can hear the person taking the video warning the people to stay back, shouting “This n**** got a gun!… It’s not worth it, n****!” as the mob encroached on a backpedaling Jake Gardner, owner of The Hive bar in Omaha, Nebraska. The mob starts to tackle Gardner to the ground, and shots start to ring out.

Portland–After the Portland police successfully broke up crowds downtown earlier in the evening, thousands who had gathered in southeast Portland marched through the city and into downtown. It remained peaceful until the protesters-turned-rioters started attacking the federal courthouse. They breached the courthouse.

Portland–At some point during the riots in Portland over the weekend, a disabled man was dumped out of his wheelechair and assaulted by protesters. It looks as though the disabled man was actually one of the rioters, as it seems like he’s asking for something to break a window with. Then, just as he he starts to raise his arm toward the window, one of the other protesters comes along and drags his wheelchair away, and the disabled guy falls over, only to have another protester start throwing punches at his as he was on the ground. Then the guy who dumped him out of the wheelchair jumps in to fend off the guy throwing punches. THEN yet another protester jumps into the fray and starts kicking the disabled guy.

Washington, DC— Violent Leftists torched historic St. John’s Church across from the White House on Sunday night.

Santa Monica— Antifa Torches One Police Car in Santa Monica – Takes Control of Second Car – Police Chased Away.

Nashville–25-Year-Old Wesley Somers Arrested after being caught in the act of setting a fire a the Nashville city hall and courthouse building Saturday night by reporters from the Tennessean who posted video and a photo of the arson in progress.

Peaceful? The actions speak for themselves. The vast majority of this violence is taking place in Democrat ruled cities and states. These feckless, weak cowards masquerading as leaders are leaving their police and citizens out to hang and siding with those eager to loot the nearest business.

The stupidity of this democrats is having some fascinating blowback. First, the odds of economic recovery in those states/cities is lower with each brick tossed and business torched. That means fewer taxes being collected and massive financial problems in these jurisdictions.

Second, people who once favored gun control are now lining up to buy pistols and rifles. The previous claim that no one needed a 30 round magazine for their AR-15 because the police would arrive to save them has been exposed as total bullshit. Average Americans now understand that they are on their own when it comes to defending their homes, their families and their businesses

Third, the Federal Government with all of its power to snoop on Americans is now focused on these radicals and their infrastructure is now getting an investigation that was long overdue.

If you are one of those who are now getting your first firearm let me encourage you to get training on how to safely handle, load, fire and clean your weapon.

    Make America Great Again, President Trump. Go away, Nancy Pelosi, get out of the way. Armies of young men need a better chance than what you are offering.

  3. seb says:

    Surely the same bad apples logic applies to protesters, police and terrorists. There can’t be more than a few hundred people actively perpetrating the violence. There are hundreds of thousands of people on the streets, if a tenth of them were violent the body count would be in the hundreds not the single digits.
    To what extent are the non-violent protesters aiding and abeding and concealing the violent ones, well we’ve had this thought experiment with ME terrorism and everyone probably has their stance prepackaged on the matter by now.
    (Similarly for police brutality, if there were more than a few rotten people in the force there’d be hundreds of George Floyd cases a year not 2-3)
    Personally, I think all violent protesters should be identified, arrested and detained for the duration of the protests. I also think the rights of innocent citizens to assemble and protest need to be respected. If darker forces are in play organizing the violence(seems plausible, a lot of this seems straight out of cold war playbooks after all) identify those and crush them.
    I recognize that I have delusional expectations regarding the capacity of the state to both enforce order and preserve liberty in this situation 🙁

  5. Eric Newhill says:

    Watching hordes of zombie rioters commit arson, robbery, beat people to death or into permanent disability while democrat state/local governments do nothing other than release more criminals from prisons onto the streets, should make mincemeat out of the argument that you don’t need a semiautomatic firearm with high magazine capacity, but it won’t because the progressives want you dead if you’re white, dead if you’re of color and have actually worked and saved, dead if you believe in the Christian God. They want to take your stuff and kill you. Every progressive policy and ideology – including leaving you defenseless in the face of violent mobs that they sponsor and encourage – point to that conclusion. Some of them even say it out loud in no uncertain terms. The democrats cannot win an election without anti-American radicals and thugs voting for them (see Antifa and various black bloc groups’ statements on their own websites) . So they pander to the worst elements of society and then try to guilt shame the rest of us. Only a self-hating fool feels guilty for being successful or white or whatever the sin of the day is.

    There are always people that take advantage of mass movements or crowds to riot. Take sports riots for example. Here are example of riots caused during celebrations (or loses?) from sports events:
    Detroit – 1984 & 1990
    Boston – 2004, 2007, & 2013
    Chicago – 1999, 1992, and 1993
    Probably some from the west coast too.
    Chicago probably set the most egregious example:
    “Michael Jordan’s brilliance leading the Chicago Bulls to multiple basketball championships in the 1990s had a downside, the Windy city rioted nearly every time they won. The worst outbreak of civil disorder was after the team’s third consecutive championship in June 1993 when two people died. A woman standing on her balcony was shot and killed by a stray bullet and a man was pulled from his car at an intersection and shot to death. Nearly 700 were arrested as fans and police fought pitch battles. There was ‘random gunfire’ heard across the city when the Bulls beat the Phoenix Suns. After rioting in 1991 and 1992 (1,000 arrests, $10 million dollars damage) the authorities decided to flood the city with police officers in 1993 but this did not stop the rioting. However, the city might have learnt its lesson. When the city’s baseball team The Cubs won their first World Series since 1908 over a million people turned out to be one of the biggest congregations of humans in history, and it passed of peacefully.”
    Moral of the story: there are peaceful protesters or celebrating fans and there are rioters/looters. Don’t confuse them.

    Anyone who has undergone medical treatment in the Time of the Covidplague may have noticed, as I have, that people who do not look like you, may not speak or understand your language, and have expressed their disdain if not hatred for you, now guard access to your doctor; likely as not are the close assistants to your doctor who administer your care; and to an increasing degree, ARE your doctor.
    As far as medicine in USA. is concerned, you have been de-contextualized.
    Dr. Jordan Cohen is the father of Daniel Cohen, former law partner of Stuart Levey and Levey’s chosen successor as head of US Treasury Dept. Office of Terror Finance. Daniel Cohen is now at CIA. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_S._Cohen_(attorney)
    At the time of Daniel’s confirmation for the Treasury slot, father Jordan Cohen was President of the Association of American Medical Colleges. Among other things, that association sets guidelines for acceptance into American medical schools.
    In 2003, JAMA published Dr. Cohen’s article,
    The Consequences of Premature Abandonment of Affirmative Action in Medical School Admissions https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/12622585/
    Cohen claims that even though

    “URM [Underrepresented Minority — African Americans, Mexican Americans, Native Americans, and mainland Puerto Ricans] applicants often have lower GPAs and MCAT scores than their white and Asian American counterparts and have less chance of being admitted on academic credentials alone,”

    it is nevertheless essential that they be admitted to medical schools to maintain and increase the benefits of diversity.
    https://journalofethics.ama-assn.org/article/assessing-affirmative-action-medical-schools/2003-06
    Keep that in mind when an Indian neurologist refers you to a surgeon from Togo to resection the tumor on your brain, then refers you to a Kenyan oncologist to administer 7000 cGy of radiation to that brain, administered by a Colombian radiation technician in a corporately-owned Cancer Treatment Center endowed by an Israeli philanthropist.

  10. Laura Wilson says:

    Whoa…Artemesia, you really don’t like going to the doctor. So…don’t go. Too bad American students have failed you so badly. Perhaps the test scores of these “not like you” doctors actually counted for something.
    Perhaps these “not like you” doctors have actually helped you out from time to time? You ARE still alive. Does that count for anything at all?
    I find that if I ask questions and listen carefully to the answers, I often learn a great deal from health care workers and doctors with accents. Try it.

  11. Deap says:

    I am glad we have over 300 million registered fire arms in this country, most often owned by highly trained and respectful NRA members. The Founders knew they needed to enshrine the 2nd Amendment among our inalienable rights.
    America has never been a police state, like so many other forms of government; instead we asked to police ourselves, abiding by shared common purposes.

  12. BABAK MAKKINEJAD says:

    Artemesia:
    Otherwise qualified candidates to Medical, Dental, and Pharmacy schools are routinely denied admissions because they are not on the US Federal Government’s list of official designated minorities; including people from South Asia that went and got themselves added to that list and now benefit from it.
    (Iranians, being Beige, are not on that list. Neither are Arabs)
    Look at what happened in India with regards to Scheduled Casts in India. An effort to redress millennia of oppression of Dalits as well as lower caste Hindus led only to the strengthening of the Cast System.

    This is a fascinating video about the tactics and strategies of Antifa. Well worth the 21 minutes! FYI, Tim Pool is a center left youtuber who has been a journalist for over 10 years. He covered the occupy protests and has followed antifa and observed how they have matured over the past 10 years. He has known antifa members. He has experience covering riots and also in war zones. He sometimes points out the stupidity of today’s journalists regarding their ignorance of how to protect themselves in dangerous situations such as these riots/protests. He and his colleagues back in the day got safety training to prepare them for dangerous reporting situations which taught them situational awareness.
    Yes, Antifa Has HIJACKED The Floyd Protests, But These Protesters Are REVELING In The Destruction https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GnJBOSTZzSc (~21 min)

  14. walrus says:

    What are the chances of further insurrection provocations pivoting on the funeral of Floyd?
    I am also concerned that an agent provocateur or an upset militia member could cause major second amendment trouble, or worse, amplify the current situation if they loose a couple of magazines with lethal effect among genuine protesters.
    We are having a “sympathy” rally on Saturday and I’m concerned that it may get out of hand. There are a number of antifa admirers in our universities. I remember from watching local Vietnam war demonstrations how a protest can be turned into a riot very quickly by trained provocateurs. There is a high end sopping and business precinct very close to the government building target of the demonstration.

  15. Deap says:

    Valissa, thank you for this important link about the ANTIFA hijacking of the floating protest mobs.
    What he speaks of about crowd controls, reminds me of the very early covid-toilet paper panic. When asked why shoppers were suddently hoarding TP, the answer was because they saw other people hoarding TP.
    Chillingly this is the same phenomenon as we are now seeing with the misdirection of the Floyd protests – creating the mass arrest scenario just so ANTIFA “prove” police brutality. His point it well taken- leaders always need willing followers which we seem to have in legions among these armies of young people today.
    Which begs the obvious question, are their connecting seeds sprouting after the first mass compliance to authoritaianism test case- the covid lockdown –to now the floating mobs conditioned by the covid lockdowns and now manipulated into floating looting and street violence, 100% unrelated to the alleged Flooyd trigger.
    Conveniently, just as the covid lockdown is melting and people are regaining their sense of freedom.
    Sunshine is the best disinfectant- the video is a must see. A lot to think about. Thanks.

  19. Artemesia says:

    Whoa…Laura Wilson, You really didn’t get the point, did you, so don’t go there.
    The point was the politicization of selecting America’s medical service providers and the financialization of medicine and its delivery, with special focus on cancer — a booming business (ask yourself why; ask yourself about the effects of 5G EMF; ask yourself how many 5G towers are in your neighborhood; ask yourself why braggart Trump “quietly” signed legislation enabling expansion of 5G technology).
    “You don’t like doctors so don’t go.” Counting to 10. Make that 50.
    Nature, reasonable habits and a peasant constitution has more to do with my present presence on the planet than “doctors who have kept me alive.” Until 2 yrs. ago I hadn’t had need of a physician since my last child was born 44 years ago. Even as self-sufficient as I am, sometimes “don’t go” is not an option.

    Well, I just received an email from my credit union asking its members to stay away on Friday.
    Our town does have a university. It started out way back as a “normal school” to train teachers for the rural schools in the area and in the town when it was still quite small. When I attended it during my undergrad and grad school days, it did still do much of the teacher training in the state but had somehow morphed into a university.
    My credit union is conveniently across one of the main avenues into town on the west end of our town and near a large shopping center of stand-alone stores like Best Buy, Target, Hobby Lobby, and other stores like those. Therefore, the credit union mailed its members to let us know the police had warned the credit union and the shopping area since a group from the university had actually requested a permit to “peacefully” protest in the area.
    A large percent of the school enrollment is made up of “locals” from our county and surrounding rural towns and smaller rural counties.
    I’m not counting on much in the way of violence. In fact, I am counting on some farmers coming around to pull their kids by the neck out of the demonstration should it go awry.

    What America has experienced over the period running, so far, from roughly May 29th, 2020 to June 1st, 2020 is nothing less than White America’s Kristallnacht. It is, in fact, much worse than the one night event which took place on November 9th, 1938, in Germany. The property damage alone will vastly exceed that of the 1938 event. Whether the emotional shock to the targets of today’s violence exceeds what the Jews of Germany say they felt remains to be seen. To some degree, this will be determined by how our leaders and the media portray it. The stakes are extremely high, so there will be a rush to fill the interpretive vacuum. I have given my interpretation above. But millions of Americans have only now had their eyes opened to a problem which they did not know existed, or of which they may have been dimly aware, but had little idea how bad it was. Given what we know about our politicians and media, we can be sure they will try to shape the public’s perceptions of this in ways that will benefit politicians and media, not the victims.
    Most of these ways will be anti-White, slightly less so on the “conservative” side, but still conceding the moral high ground to non-whites and their whino (white in name only) enablers. Early results are in, and the blaming of Whites and grovelling before blacks have already reached proportions I have never seen before. For there seems to be another virus loose in the world, to go with the Chinese one, itself a threat originating with non-Whites with evidence to suggest it was purposely directed at Whites.
    This companion virus to Covid is the pandemic of hatred of Whites. We see it from the most rabid looter, to the cultured TV talker who tells us all Whites have a racism virus in their brain, to the savage black who stalked and murdered 86 and 85 year old Paul and Lydia Marino in the cemetery where they were visiting their son’s grave, a few days after the Floyd story broke.
    Opportunistic infections following in White-hatred’s wake are White self-hatred, hatred of police, and, that old fallback for revolutionaries everywhere, America-hatred. All over the world, people who have never met an African, much less an African-American, and still less experienced their cold, hard stare of hatred and the violence that so often follows meeting one, have discovered they “can’t breathe”. Nor, it would seem, do they want non-grovelling Whites to breathe the same air as they do.
    As another night promising to be full of broken glass here in Chicago approaches, I know these things: After the last four nights in America, I am going to be sure to mention these days to anyone proffering me another story about “Kristalnacht”. And, for what blacks and their whino hangers-on have done to my people, they must never be forgiven, and indeed, reparations must be demanded for generations to come.

    ******************************************************************
    The Bulls riots unfolded right under my living room window on West Madison Street, as did the ’65, ’68 and Rodney King riots. (I only heard about the ’68 riot from my parents, being as I was in VN). In ‘93, platoon-sized police response teams were forming up in the middle of the intersection with Springfield Avenue, all traffic being re-routed away from the area, and then dispatched to hot spots. I saw attempts being made by groups of would-be looters to get into buildings across the street from us; they’d wait until a team had been dispatched and there were only one or two cars holding the corner, and try to sneak by, but more cops kept coming and chasing them away.
    I was there, blissed out in the middle of that joyful crowd, for the Cubs celebration. It’s a lie that there were only one million people. I was standing in the middle of Michigan Avenue with a clear view up and down the length of it, and also with a long view to the west down one of the connecting roads, probably Monroe. For as far as the eye could see, which was from Roosevelt Road on the south to Chicago Avenue on the north, people were standing shoulder to shoulder and asshole to belly-button from sidewalk to sidewalk, and pressed right up against the buildings. To the west looking down Monroe a good quarter mile, same thing. Oh, and there were 900,000 more people (police estimate) waiting for the formal reception for the team, on the great lawn of Grant Park a few blocks east. And they were all one crowd: there was an unbroken sea of humanity from Michigan Avenue all the way to Grant Park. The lowest crowd estimate I saw was three million, and a couple of sources (sorry, lost the link) put it at a cool five million, making it the second largest crowd in American history, topped only by the New York City ticker tape parade for Ike at seven million. It took me probably an hour to inch my way from Michigan Avenue about two blocks east, hoping for a better view of the Cubs’ motorcade. At that point, all movement became impossible and I was stuck about 20 feet from the sidewalk. I just did get a glimpse of the team as they drove by, in the open top of a double decker bus.
    Aside from the size of the crowd, there was one difference – and it made all the difference – between the Bulls “celebration” and that of the Cubs, and it had nothing to do with the police being better prepared: we were White. We stood there pressed together without fear, welcomed and recognized by our tribe, and gave ourselves over for a few hours to our love of the Cubs, of baseball, and to memories of family who had passed away, never getting to see this day. And then we quietly went home.

    OBEE
    Mattis is USMC (ret.) not USA. I do not wish to take credit for him.
    He is incorrect. This is an attempted insurrection for which the police killing of Floyd was a mere excuse that had been anticipated as a contingency and for which country wide preparations had been made. The speed of reaction of the anarcho/antifa makes that clear. They have used the wave of sympathy for Blacks very skillfully. IMO Mattis hopes for a collapse in the Biden campaign.

  28. Kilo 4/11 says:

    @ turcopolier 05June 0924
    Colonel,
    I do not want him, either. He has now called Trump “the most divisive president” ever and a “threat to the Constitution”.
    The ignorance displayed in these remarks is breathtaking. Mattis was said, in Marine Corps publications, to have been a “warrior monk”; one who lived entirely for the Corps and had little going on outside it. The Marines have always attracted a kind of violence-prone, oddball romantic type, Lee Harvey Oswald being only the most notorious example. IMO, Mattis would have been better served to go former Marine Fred Reed’s route in retirement. Reed, while having some bad ideas about immigration, wrote a book titled “A Brass Pole In Bangkok, A Thing I’d Like To Be”. Some time spent soaking in the activities around a brass pole in Bangkok, though not doing his soul much good, might have given the general a better perspective on life on earth.

    Some accounts of “police brutality” in the media omit key precipitating factors.
    A glaring example is the much-publicized story of Buffalo police pushing a 75-year old man to the ground, injuring him.
    What is left out of all the MSM stories I have seen about this incident is
    a description of exactly what he was doing before Police shoved him.
    Sundance describes those actions here:

    See also this video:
    https://youtu.be/9CubkyIzygQ
    As Sundance describes it:
    “In this slow motion video, you will see Gugino using a phone as a capture scanner.
    You might have heard the term “skimming”; it’s essentially the same.
    Watch him use his right hand to first scan the mic of officer one (top left of chest).
    Then Gugino moves his hand to the communications belt of the second officer.”

    Sundance notes President Trump’s tweet on the Buffalo agitator Gugino, and gives some further information on the situation, here:

    Keith H –
    Gugino is NOT part of the Antifa movement. He is a devout Catholic and a passionate advocate for multiple causes on behalf of the poor and disenfranchised. He has spent his retirement lending a hand against poverty and injustice as a member of the Catholic Worker movement.
    Some here might say correctly that the Catholic Workers are lefties within the Church. But they are definitely NOT socialists, anarchists, or terrorists. And Gugino is NOT a lib, his facebook and twitter feeds criticize as many Dems as they do Republicans.
