Actual News Report From Lansing: ‘The protests were mostly peaceful’

Posted by on Dec 12, 2012 at 11:30 am

We’ve been using that “mostly peaceful” gag for some time now, usually stemming from the violent Occupy rallies in 2011. Of course any time leftists agitators erupt into violence,–which is pretty much any time they get together–invariably there’s always some lamestream media outlet that calls the violence mostly peaceful.

There was a heavy police presence, but the protests were mostly peaceful. There were a few isolated incidents of clashes between protesters and police.

Michigan State Police said pepper spray was used to subdue one protester outside the Capitol who had his hands on a trooper.

Capt. Harold Love says the female trooper was being pulled into a crowd Tuesday. Love says a male trooper standing nearby gave two short bursts of pepper spray to end the incident. There was no arrest.

Captain Love says two people were arrested when they tried to get into the George Romney Building, a state office building that was closed.

On the Capitol grounds, a big white tent erected for supporters of the legislation collapsed. There were no injuries, but union protesters reportedly helped bring down the tent.

Of course it wasn’t the media reporting that, heaven forbid.

Naturally, not a single mention of the “mostly peaceful” assault on Steven Crowder.

If today’s media were around in the 1930’s they’d have reported Kristallnacht as a “night where a few windows were broken but the brownshirts were mostly peaceful.”

Update: Here’s more peace breaking out.

Then there’s this disgrace.

    So a tent collapsed. Almost all by itself. Okay, maybe it had some help. But, what, you wingnutz have a problem with that? Maybe you should have made sure the tent had a union label on it and not some cheapo non-union piece of crap tent. Didya think about that? Huh?

    In related news, German reports said the ‘Kristolnacht’ event was “mostly peaceful” with only a few broken windows by accident. No mention of violence.

    So nice of those Union chaps; when they see a tent about to come down they lend a hand to help. And being so helpful to the people on the other side of the issue no less. Bless their hearts.
