If everyday Americans had any doubt that the fake news media and Democrats are working together to lie and mislead the public, you need only look at widespread misinformation about riots in liberal-run cities. As violence, arson, attacks on police officers, and death counts rise, the fake news media continues to call these rampages “Peaceful Protests.” Instead of delivering fact-based accounts, they are even blaming the White House for sending agents to protect and serve. These are just samples of the propaganda fake news outlets are whispering in your ears.

And yet for all these peaceful gatherings that the media would have people believe are sit-ins, banner waving, and marchers holding hands while singing Gospels, the facts highlight a dark and opposing reality. In Minneapolis, so-called peaceful protestors caused upwards of $55 million in property damage to more than 1,500 buildings, destroyed or burned upwards of 30 small businesses to the ground, and overran police precincts by hurling projectiles at officers and tearing down fences.
But again, you wouldn’t know it from reading fake news headlines. Here are some more examples:

Minneapolis businessman Calvin Horton, a black man, was shot and killed during the Minneapolis “peaceful protests,” as reported by Fox News.
In Seattle, Mayor Jenny Durkan allowed radical extremists to establish an Antifa no-go zone that blocked police officers. Violence, intimidation, and shooting deaths were called a “Block Party” by the mayor.
But, what did the media have to say about it?

“The community is at grave risk and the men and the women that provide that public safety service, they’re at grave risk as well,” Seattle police union president Mike Solan reportedly said. “Even after gunshots rang out and at least two teenagers were slaughtered, the Democrat politician refused to allow law enforcement to protect residents.”
Those with financial means hired private security, others were left to fend for themselves. One African-American mother is now suing the city for wrongful death after police were banned from maintaining order or responding to imminent threats. Her 19-year-old son, Lorenzo Anderson, bled to death on a Seattle street as armed radical thugs prevented first responders from coming to his rescue. Her son’s body was eventually loaded into the back of a pickup truck by civilians and driven away.
Only after President Donald Trump informed the rogue Democrat mayor that federal forces were being deployed did she finally allow Seattle PD to reclaim the area and restore safety.
At a Congressional hearing in which Democrats sought to undermine U.S. Attorney William Barr, Rep. Jim Jordon destroyed the false narrative and demonstrated that many of these protests are anything but peaceful.
In case you missed it, here’s how that conversation went:
Rep. Jordon: Do peaceful protests destroy businesses?
A.G. Barr: No.
Rep. Jordon: Do peaceful protests injure officers?
A.G. Barr: No.
Rep. Jordon: Do peaceful protests burn down buildings?
A.G. Barr: No.
Reports indicate that “peaceful protestors” are responsible for more than $2 billion in property damage. Officers have been hospitalized, livelihoods ruined, and civilians murdered. Despite this, the media is hellbent on lying about precisely all of it.
