These Black Lives Matter activists are completely ill-informed. Are you surprised by this?
Corporate Media continues to push a dishonest narrative and the consequences of these lies are dangerous.
Independent filmmaker Ami Horowitz was in Minneapolis, Minnesota asking BLM protesters on the street what they expect would happen once the Chauvin verdict was announced.
“Burn the whole city down! What does it matter?” one protester told Horowitz.
Another said, “I say burn the city down, ya know? So they can see that we’re here — continue the movement.”
When Horowitz asked one young woman if she thought that the city would burn she said, “Yes, absolutely.” Horowitz said, “No question about it.” She responded, “No. And that’d be the least of our problems.”
Horowitz asked a different woman, “By burning all the city down, we’ll teach them a lesson?”
She responded, “I’m all for burning it down. There shouldn’t even be a trial. He should be convicted just as is.”
So just abridge the due process rights of the defendant. Great job, everyone.
He then asks, “If Chauvin got off, do you support street justice on him?” The response was, “Yes.”
Another said, “Y’all should’ve fed him to the wolves a long time ago.”
He continues his questioning by asking protesters if they know how many unarmed black people were killed by police last year.
“A hundred… plus?” says one woman, then asks, “In just Minnesota?”
“No, around the country,” responds Horowitz.
“Oh, thousands!” she replies.
“Unarmed black people,” clarifies Horowitz.
“Thousands!” she repeats.
While he doesn’t mention the statistic to the protesters, text appears on the screen stating that 18 unarmed black men were shot and killed by police in 2020.
“Seems like you’re trying to erase our — like, like — destruct the whole race of… y’know the African American race,” said another.
Taking the cue from this last response, Horowitz asks protesters if they thought that the killing of unarmed black men was equivalent to genocide. He explains it as “an eradication of an entire people.”
“That’s a good question, and now that I’ve been confronted with it, I’m going to go ahead and say yes,” said the woman who said that the city should burn.
When asking other protesters Horowitz says, “Genocide means, like, the targeting of one race for its destruction. Do you think that’s what they’re doing?”
“The genocide of anyone that’s not white,” says one.
“Yeah, I think that’s one word for it,” said another.
A third responded, “Yes, most definitely!”
But it gets even worse.
Horowitz then asks if another civil war is needed to have “true justice” in the country.
One woman said, “Yes, if that’s what it takes, then we have to do it.”
“If that’s what it takes, then I believe so,” says another.
A third said, “If that’s what it takes to revamp everything. For everything to be equal, at least equal for us to have justice, then I believe so.”
“Will it happen? Probably,” said another.
He asks, “What percent of this country are white supremacists?”
“I would say most of the country. I can’t give you a number but like…”
“You’d say the majority of the country?” asks Horowitz.
“Should we just gather up the white supremacists and do street justice?” asks Horowitz as a follow-up.
“That would be ideal! Again, I’m not saying anything that would directly incriminate me, but I would say that would be a good idea.”
Another responded, “I don’t want to say that we need to start killing all white folks but it’s like…but… Maybe they need to feel the pain and the hurt.”

This is truly heartbreaking that people see their fellow Americans this way. But let’s not forget that it can be directly laid at the feet of Corporate Media who push a narrative that police are deliberately targeting black people to kill them when that’s not what’s happening. That’s not to say that there aren’t individual racists behaving in a racist manner.
While their violent rhetoric is disturbing, we cannot blame our fellow Americans for falling for this narrative when it gets wall-to-wall coverage in the left-wing Corporate Media, pushed by massive activist organizations, is stated breathlessly by radical leftist politicians, and the actual numbers are going unreported.
This is what a steady diet of MSNBC and CNN can do to someone.
If the fake Corporate News Media doesn’t like the label “Enemy of the People” they should stop acting like the enemies of the people.
