As protests continue around the country in the wake of Minneapolis resident George Floyd’s death, it has become increasingly obvious that many so-called ‘demonstrators’ are really just hoodlums and thugs out to attack people.
Countless video clips have been posted to social media showing attack after attack, but instead of focusing on those, which are commonplace at this point, the so-called ‘mainstream media’ remains laser-focused on police brutality and racism.
This was pointed out in an early Monday morning Twitter post from Lara Logan, an investigative journalist who hosts “No Agenda” on Fox News’ streaming network Fox Nation.
Logan retweeted a video clip from Andy Ngo, who has regularly covered outbreaks of violence during so-called ‘peaceful protests.’ In it, younger males who appear to be black are beating and kicking what appears to be an older white man, who is seen lying on the ground and begging for the men to stop assaulting him.
“These people are not ‘peaceful protesters’ – why does the media not show the many scenes like this that are easily found?” Logan wrote in her tweet. “Watching MSNBC and CNN all day talk in shocked terms about police over-reach and police using force – but they are not talking about scenes like this.”

In another view of what looks like the same attack, the white man — who looks to be carrying a hockey stick — appears to be trying to defend a person who fell off a bike when he is swarmed and attacked by a mob.

Other Twitter users chimed in, many voicing disgust and anger about what they saw.

Other Twitter users have noticed the volume of clips posted online showing wholesale violence — incidents that are not being talked about much on cable news networks that are instead preoccupied with a rare, albeit heartbreaking, case of police use of deadly force.
This video, like 1000s of others, shamefully shows in effect wholesale, indiscriminate serious physical assault and battery violence by hardcore people that have deep seated hated, a hardened heart, and sadistic traits within themselves. America deserves so much better than this

CNN and MSNBC will never show this. It doesn’t fit into their agenda.
These networks and their reporting are fueling a complete meltdown of our society.
Ask yourselves, why are they doing this?

Again, scenes of businesses being destroyed and people randomly attacked and beaten are literally everywhere online.
A man in Dallas was nearly beaten to death by a mob Friday night. After the savage pummeling, he was left crumpled and bleeding on the ground.

An unedited version of the assault shows the man carrying a machete and making an aggressive move — quite possibly to defend a store or property he owned. But it nearly cost him his life.
Full unedited video for editorial requests. Please attribute to Elijah Schaffer of Blaze TV. I cannot confirm he was the store owner, but I pulled out my camera when I saw him appearing to defend a store, then he was rushed, then made the move that might have cost him his life pic.twitter.com/8oGa2obBbp

What’s more, there are reports that the violence is being staged — that Left-wing factions are using the sad occasion of Floyd’s death to cause more mayhem and destruction.
BREAKING: tonight’s Dallas riot was pre-planned
Organizers were directing the crowd where to go
They had pallets of 100 bricks ready for rioters
They were yelling to the crowd “go left, there are 100 bricks on the corner over there”
This wasn’t random chaos
More info to come

On Saturday, Attorney General William Barr said that those factions were using “Antifa-like tactics” to burn, loot, and victimize people under the guise of protesting.
“Accountability for his death must be addressed, and is being addressed, through the regular process of our criminal justice system, both at the state and at the federal level,” Barr said during a press conference. “That system is working and moving at exceptional speed. Already initial charges have been filed. That process continues to move forward. Justice will be served.”
He added: “Groups of outside radicals and agitators are exploiting the situation to pursue their own separate and violent agenda. In many places, it appears the violence is planned, organized, and driven by anarchistic and far-left extremists, using Antifa-like tactics, many of whom travel from out of state to promote the violence.”
President Trump declared Antifa a terrorist organization on Sunday.
