The situation in Kenosha, Wisconsin is getting worse after the officer-involved shooting of Jacob Blake. Blake was wanted on multiple warrants and police were attempting to arrest him during a domestic disturbance call when he refused to comply and tried to reach for something in his vehicle. Some video evidence also points to Blake having a knife.
The fact that this case is incredibly gray hasn’t stopped Black Lives Matter from taking to the streets. Looting, rioting, and burning of businesses have engulfed areas of the city over the past two nights with no signs things are slowing.
One example of just how heated things are getting was caught on camera. Elijah Schaffer from The Blaze was filming when a man literally pulled a gun and pointed it in his face.
HOLY SH*#: while interviewing this #BLM rioter in Kinosha he pulls out a real pistol and points it at my camera while explaining what we would do to cops if they rolled up on us right now
It’s been a while since I had a gun pointed at me even if it was just to make a point pic.twitter.com/hjQqO9Ccbb

You won’t see this video played on CNN or the broadcast networks because they are too busy hiding the reality from the public of what is happening in these cities. The latest theme via the media this morning was to say that the “peaceful protests gave way” to violence. There were no peaceful protests in Kenosha. They’ve been violent since the very beginning of the first night of demonstrations. Also, if these protests are so peaceful, what made them give way to rioting? If people are peaceful, they don’t just start burning things down a few hours later, otherwise, they are, in fact, not peaceful.
Regardless, the person in this video claims he wants to shot cops who “roll up.” That seems a little insane and is an obvious result of the over-heated rhetoric coming from the left right now. Even the Governor of Wisconsin didn’t wait for the facts before stoking the flames. The news media are obfuscating to paint their own narrative. Meanwhile, national Democrat politicians are throwing gasoline on the fire by making proclamations they have no evidence for.
We are in a bad place as a nation right now. As I said at the beginning of this article, there’s just too much unknown about this shooting to respond with anything other than patience. Yet, BLM doesn’t care about that, nor do they care about an honest adjudication of the facts. They just want to cause chaos and destruction. That such a group has been mainstreamed is a disgusting indictment of our current political environment.
