Skip to comments.Video: Journalists Beaten, Robbed By Black Lives Matter Protesters Live On Air
Posted on 06/01/2020 4:43:52 AM PDT by USA Conservative
Reporter Omar Jimenez has been arrested live on television in Minneapolis while reporting on widespread looting and riots throughout the city. He was live on-air speaking about the situation when police in riot gear arrested Mr. Jimenez, placing him in handcuffs. The police then led him to a waiting patrol car. The mainstream media was in shock and that was the news of the day, even do the reporter was released just on hour later without being harmed! But the mainstream media failed to report attacks on reporters when they are committed by the BLM.
During the latest protests in Alabama, reporters were physically attacked as vandalism and looting ignited in the heart of downtown Birmingham on Sunday night.
Once again the mainstream media failed to report a piece of news that would have been reported if the news suited their liberal narrative. From Yellowhammer:
During the later stages of a group of rioters vandalizing that building, one masked man who was part of BLM movement was recorded hitting Stephen Quinn with ABC 33/40 over the back of the head.
At least two masked men then began swinging at Madison Underwood of Alabama Media Group. The livestream cut out with Underwood on the ground, attempting to protect himself as the men kicked him, and another Alabama Media Group reporter yelling for help.
Protestors rallied at Linn Park at 7 to tear down the Confederate statues/monuments. Ivana was there covering for AL.com. The full video below: https://www.facebook.com/watch/?v=297910334549112
One of the reporters Stephen Quinn had his wallet stolen too.
Please share this article wherever you can. It is the only way we can work around their censorship and ensure people receive news about issues that the mainstream media suppress.
a very good argument for assualt weapons with large magazine capacity.
The liberals are finding they are no immune to the anarchy they have been promoting for so long.
No different from the ‘Rat Party stealing your money through taxation.
If anyone has a way to download and save twitter videos, can you pls FReepmail me?
If the US had gone to electronic money Swedish style, Floyd would still be alive.
Electronic money would make it tougher for drug dealers.
This reminds of a story of some small business owners pleading with the rioters not to burn down their businesses...because they voted and supported progressives.
Their stores were looted anyways.
I need to find a link.
Anti-assault(i.e. defensive) weapons
Wait a minute you cant attack me! Im on your side! you cant burn down my house, loot my business, beat me silly, Im on your side .... ha ha ha ha ha ha ha.
I have found that ALL the commonly accepted narratives of this case are in fact, exactly the opposite
Black youth are oppressed - in fact, they are highly privileged and entitled. Combined with the narrative of resentment they have been fed by white liberals, they demand, and receive, no consequences for their actions. This is the root of all their problems, and they have proven it with their behavior
cops are violent - in fact, in the face of such wanton destruction, looting and violence, the fact that no rioters have been summarily shot shows the extreme caution of Americas cops and their political masters
America is united in protest - instead, all I see on the streets are very young people, mostly men, comprised of low IQ looters and white hippies and make-believe revolutionaries. Hardly representative of the whole of America.
It is not anarchy.
The machinery of Democrats is hard at work.
The number of protesters in Tampa was amazing.
Is BLM shutting down the drug dealers that are killing thousands of blacks?
Hows that working out ?
YEp....it is very ORGANIZED!! SOROS money at work!! And Ton Stiers money at work!!
They have sown the wind, now they are reaping the whirlwind. But the libs will find a way, however twisted, to blame it on Trump/whitey/Repubs. Casting blame for their failures is what leftists do.
Black men are finding that Uncle Sam knows how to woo black women.
I wonder who the other reporter thought would come to help. A different network? Most likely filming the attack; it could be an exclusive, after all.
Apparently the nuances of the French Revolution are not a required subject matter in whatever history classes these people take while they are getting an education.
Trump should declare BLM a terrorist group too, but Jared wants to cater to black criminals.
beating “journalists”.....sounds ok to me.
This is result of coddling a whole segment of society. We money bomb them with subsidies waive taxes pay their bills etc. cut out the entitlement s. People who have to Lakeland or starve have no time for ranting about discrimination. I am beyond tired of hearing about the fag/lesbo/trans agenda. The BLM. ANTIFA. et al. As far as slavery goes it ended here over 150 yrs ago. Get over it. The last semi form of slavery was the draft but I dont see vets of that bombing anything. In summation I am a white old man who worked for everything I have, no one in my history owned slaves. Note to all of these bums: I am tired of taking care of you and hearing how bad I treat you. dont tread on me.
