As I reported earlier, Reuters tweeted out about the “mostly peaceful” riots in Louisville last night despite the the smashing of businesses, setting fires everywhere and the attacks on police including shooting two cops.

At least 127 people were arresting in the not at all peaceful rioting last night, as my colleague Jeff Charles has reported. The suspect who allegedly shot the cops was also taken into custody, as I reported last night and he was identified today.

Pro tip to Reuters? It ceased to be a peaceful protest from the moment they smashed the first window and lit the first fire. When you try to spin it otherwise, you are simply trying to push a narrative that has very little to do with the facts.

While the shooting of the police officers in Louisville was probably the worst event of the night, had rioters gotten their wish, it could have been much worse, given what they did in Portland.

A rioter threw a Molotov cocktail out of a group of press people at the line of Portland Police. It burst into a huge fireball.

It was only by the grace of God that the police seemed to not be seriously hit with it.

Donald Trump, Jr. knew immediately how to refer to it.

Yes, you know they would, as indeed they have.

This is flat out terrorism, fitting all the definitions for a terrorist act: violence/terror employed for political aim. Let’s start referring to it by its correct name.

Here are a couple of other different angles of the attack. It looks to me like a woman, but of course it could be a smaller guy too.

This isn’t the first time they’ve attacked the Portland Police with Molotov cocktails, it’s just the latest. They’ve also managed to light their own comrades on fire as we previously reported, when they gave two of their buddies hot feet.
