In September 2020 then-President Trump warned that Antifa and BLM were throwing cans of soup and tuna at police during their alleged peaceful protests. The media mocked Trump for his “baseless claims.”
Everyone thought it was funny until CNN reported last night with a video of a rioter in Minneapolis. One protestor was interviewed with “soup for his family,” complete with a wink at the camera.
The protestor had been rioting and damaging property for the four days since protests began following the shooting death of Daunte Wright, a black man shot by an officer during a traffic stop in suburban Minneapolis.
While CNN, who admitted in the sting Project Veritas video they are trying to help BLM, might find the humor in the interview, many Americans do not. Any protest resulting in vandalism, attacks on police, and looting stores is not helping the nation. It’s criminal activity, plain and simple.
The liberal leftist media doesn’t seem to mind the occasional break-in or arson, so long as it’s not by a Trump supporter. But much of what happens under the BLM banner has nothing to do with justice. Just ask the organization’s leader who recently took a luxury home shopping spree. Seems like systemic racism is treating her just fine.
Racism is wrong, but throwing soup cans or looting stores doesn’t make it right. It makes it worse. Check out the video and see for yourself today.
