Black Lives Matter thugs assault reporter covering riot in St. Louis: ‘Scariest moment in my career’

Dan Gray, a local news reporter in St. Louis, Missouri, saw his life flash before his eyes when an angry mob of Black Lives Matter thugs surrounded him on Friday afternoon.

“Scariest moment in my career,” Gray recounted on Twitter. “Protesters upset about not-guilty verdict for an officer accused of killing a suspect, turn on me and media.”

Gray later told Fox 2 he was hit by three water bottles, including one hurled at the back of his head.

The protesters were furious after federal judge Timothy Wilson found Jason Stockley, a white police officer, not guilty of first-degree murder in the 2011 shooting death of Anthony Lamar Smith, a black man.

During his 28 years on the bench, Judge Wilson has ruled both for and against police, and has a reputation for fair-mindedness.

As protests and angry confrontations with police erupted across St. Louis, Gray was besieged by Black Lives Matter thugs simply for doing his job. And apparently, for being a white male.

“You know you shouldn’t be over here!” one angry man yelled at Gray. “You should get your ass back where you belong! Get ‘yo ass away! Get the f-ck out of our movement!”

Dan Gray escaped uninjured. But the incident is emblematic of the escalating racial tensions raging across the United States.

Fueling the racial animus is reckless, inflammatory rhetoric by the irresponsible mainstream media, which label anyone they disagree with as “racist,” “white supremacists,” or “neo-Nazis.”

Case in point: ESPN’s Jemele Hill, who maliciously defamed President Trump and his entire administration — including renowned black neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson — as “white supremacists.” You don’t even have to be white to be labeled a white supremacist by today’s radical-left moonbats.

The anti-police Black Lives Matter movement started in 2014 following the shooting death of black youth Michael Brown by white police officer Darren Wilson.

Rioting and violent protests erupted nationwide after a grand jury refused to indict Wilson, saying he acted in self-defense. Residents of the predominantly black community of Ferguson, Missouri, claimed officer Wilson was let off because of systemic racism.

In 2014, then-president Barack Obama’s Department of Justice — whose head was black U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder — later cleared officer Darren Wilson of any wrongdoing.

As Black Lives Matter and leftists protest alleged police brutality, they ignore the staggering number of African-Americans who are killed/shot every weekend in Chicago, the murder capital of the United States.

Almost all are black-on-black crimes. Where’s the outrage over these senseless murders?

While you and I enjoyed a relaxing Friday evening after a long week, this is what alt-left moonbats and Black Lives Matter hoodlums were up to.
