Skip to comments.NPR: ‘Vehicle Attacks Rise As Extremists Target Protesters’
Posted on 06/21/2020 1:34:44 PM PDT by rintintin
Right-wing extremists are turning cars into weapons, with reports of 50 vehicle-ramming incidents since protests against police violence erupted nationwide in late May.
At least 18 are categorized as deliberate attacks; another two dozen are unclear as to motivation or are still under investigation, according to a count released Friday by Ari Weil, a terrorism researcher at the University of Chicago's Chicago Project on Security and Threats. Weil has tracked vehicle-ramming attacks, or VRAs, since protests began.

I am SO not upset with the leftists chanting outside of Mitchs house the other night. Im just confused why they regard him as an enemy. He doesnt fight against them. He fights against MAGA
Good. About time.
The title is a bald-faced LIE and they know it.
“Extremists” my foot.
These are mostly folks trying to get out of a lynch mob situation. I’ve advised my wife to run them over at 50MPH also if they corner her.
Right wing extremist vehicle attacks = drivers being caught in Left Wing Road Blocks and trying to maneuver their way out. Nothing more.
Even Twitter is railing against this crapfest of an article
How about you start identifying them as such, NPR?
Never mind. I'll do it myself.
These “attacks” would not occur of the roadway were not being illegally blocked. And no one wants to sit there while a bunch of protestors beat on your vehicle.
Ari Weill is a PhD student at U of Chicago. I would put significant dollars down betting that he is the typical social justice privilege ignoramus who has the right connections and parentally defined pedigree to get into U of Chicago. He should work on becoming aware of the reality of the world around him, instead of becoming another ‘higher education’ PhD parasite on society.
Did the GOP defund NPR when they controlled both houses of Congress?
No bias there.
Maybe the answer is to stay in your vehicle and calmly display a weapon?
I would be happy to explain to Hannah Allan why she is full of shit.
That’s more a case of self-defense by vehicle, since drivers know they’ll probably be beaten to death if the mob drags them from the car. So you either save yourself or you take as many with you as possible.
Antifa and BLM thugs and terrorists - “protesters”
Those resisting the terrorists and fighting back - “Right Wing Extremists”
Where did these so-called “journalists” go to school - Pravda or Chinese Communist Thought Police?
I know I would step on the gas if surrounded by a gang of vicious ferals.
Where did these so-called journalists go to school?
I dont know, but the GOP didnt defund NOR when the GOP controlled both houses of Congress
Thanks, Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan
Vehicle attacks. Could be, but the videos I’ve seen look more like ordinary people trying to avoid being yanked out and beaten to death by moving forward. To avoid being struck by cars, don’t play in the street, don’t block the highways, and don’t threaten people who are just trying to get somewhere.
