This is reminiscent of the rioting that I watched in the 60's when entire city blocks were burned to the ground in many of America's large cities.
In all honesty, it didn't do much to make me sympathetic to the "plight" of black people. There is absolutely no justification for this behavior regardless of their outrage against the march, just as there was no justification for the burning and looting that took place in the 60's.
Now this will finally get the attention it deserves... Michelle Malkin has posted... I wouldn't be surprised to hear mention of this on FNC this afternoon/evening now... Although, Malkin goes after the general media tone and less on the deliberate lie from the AP/ABC... so hopefully enough of her readers who have connections find that real point still.
by the way, here's where ABC still stands on this. No change on story:
and that is still the story you get when searching for "toledo" and same for "riot
How can they continue this known lie? I have emailed them a couple times insisting they should make a public retraction and apology... Not holding my breath because I'm just one guy... but I hope this thing gets on some bigger folks' radar.
Just got a reply from ABC News...
Thank you for contacting us.
The "Raw News" comes directly to our site on an automated feed from the wire service. Often it is out of our control when there are errors. The feature gives our readers up-to-the minute news, but there is a sacrifice with details, so it lives up to its name "Raw".
Thanks for logging on to ABCNews.com.
I'm totally fed up with the Poor Black Rioters and the News Media that Champion these scumbags!
The news on the situation definitely wasn't "raw". I heard hours before the ABC News headline came out that the Neo-Nazi group hadn't even shown up. Now maybe that wasn't exactly right either, but it should've given ABC pause to check out whether or not the Nazi's actually showed up or not. Later i heard that the Nazi's had shown up but left right away. Anybody know which story is true?
It's definitely BS that the Neo-Nazi group were the rioters. And ABC News knew it and decided to go with a lie because the truth didn't jibe with their view of things and the associated propaganda that they spew in order to propogate that view.

There. All fixed. :p
Hell, I was out of town for 4 days and kept up better than they did!
(I’ve returned to this thread hunting for a link I posted to one of the threads on this topic years ago). I must correct your post though for any future readers...
The victim did NOT invite the white supremacists to Toledo. They read his plight online and came to the Western side of Ohio on their own.
