While many in the mainstream media are downplaying the protests and riots happening across the US, those who are directly experiencing it are seeing them differently. Recently, the New York Times reported on a demonstration that took place in Portland, Oregon headlining the article by saying protestors are taking “a more confrontational approach.”
Community activists had organized a peaceful “unity rally” in New York on Wednesday that included several police officers and clergy joining the march. However, several anarchists were laying in wait with bats and hijacked the peaceful rally injuring several police officers.
Except that “one person” in both instances is the same person, the progressive Mayor of Olympia, Washington, Cheryl Selby. The Daily Wire explains the conundrum: Olympia, Washington, Mayor Cheryl Selby has been a vocal supporter of Black Lives Matter and those protesting and rioting across the nation, yet when her own home was vandalized during the demonstrations, she called it “domestic terrorism.” She said: “I’m really trying to process this,” she told the Olympian. “It’s like domestic terrorism. It’s unfair.” READ: Progressive Mayor Who Supported Black Lives Matter Gets Home Vandalized During Riots, Calls It ‘Domestic Terrorism’
