    Why does it have to take 5 minutes to say ‘Yes’

  2. Who knows? Media quit telling the truth a LONG time ago 🤷‍♂️

    • @Baby Faye I thought, perhaps, IAmaPerson was Black, since some people think Blacks are not persons/people and have a history of trying to prevent them from voting, removing their 2A rights to self defense, pushing them into eugenics (abortion), and into slavery (Old South/Dem ghettos) and exploiting them for votes (quid quo pro vote/free money), etc…
      I’d rather trust FBI statistics than those from a MNM heavily invested in attacking Trump, our Republic and our Constitution.

      Besides, the cases you refer to, while heavily propagandized by the media, are not the rule but the exceptions. You’ve confused out 680,000+ police with the Red Guards, or the Republican Guards in Iraq, or the Stazi in East Germany. The inability of some people to think rationally leads them to conclude that they would be better off if the police were “defunded”. They obviously haven’t thought that one through. Just whom do they believe would defend them from gangsters and thugs like Floyd if there were no police around? The National Guard, or the US Military. And, the first time some thug takes a wack at a guardsman or soldier and that soldier responds with deadly force, who will they choose next to protect them?
      There is no such thing as a perfect human being. Everyone makes mistakes, and some make more than others. The police can be no better than the population they are drawn from. Imperfect people lead to imperfect police.

    • @GreyGeek GreyGreek-Sounds like Macadonian.

    • Besides who said anything about defunded? I didn’t.

    • @GreyGeek You left out the militsila.

    Remember when they said the white kids who went to the beach were putting everyone’s life in danger?

      @G 😆😆😢..Right !!

    • White Lives Don’t Matter FYI i don’t support the riots because it spawns more hatred from people like you, the people peacefully protesting are the ones that i support, the rioters are called “opportunists” and stand for themselves. Its also been well documented that white supremists “agitators” have been causing destruction in Austin at the capital. So cant hate black people for that.

      @White Lives Don’t Matter wow, you are so ignorant.

    • @Terell Chapman if white countries are so racist and evil and your lies are in danger why do you still choose to live amongst white people? that’s right because everything you say is black people are the most privileged, protected groups in the world every year millions of non-white or into white countries to cash in and get some of that sweet oppression in the form of Free Housing, food, Medical, education and affirmative action. Leave us in peace go back to wakanda!

    Covid-19 might spike because of protesting

    *Dam that’s crazy….*

  5. You think coughing, yelling, close contact, being jailed in a state of severe stress might spread the virus ?

    • Armando De Los Santos I wasn’t talking to you buddy I was talking to “LauraBeeDannon”. Read her comment

    • Armando De Los Santos and on top of that the flu kills way less than 100,000 people in a a year and there is no restrictions for the flu. When I was growing up half the kids at my school didn’t have the flu shot until the school nurse told their parents they had to take it. If covid 19 was treated like the flu we’d have a million dead

      Isn’t that a joke

    • @Armando De Los Santos add to that many of the so called who died of the virus more than likely died from something else.

      NO, NO NO,
      Not until The rules are blatantly broken like with the violent rioters. Or the group all gathered at George Floyds Memorial Service. Ya now that they rubbed the double standard in our faces, “Oh..in a couple days, lets open it up for the public”

    I like how people totally forgot COVID existed.

  9. Seems to me like someone is cooking the books

      There are people who make great bookkeepers. They make great lawyers also. They make great newscasters. They make great actors & actresses. They make great politicians. They cooked the books.

      @ohger427 Bunker Boy understands this as does the entire GOP.

    • https://www.researchgate.net/publication/341832637_All-cause_mortality_during_COVID-19_No_plague_and_a_likely_signature_of_mass_homicide_by_government_response

      “The latest data of all-cause mortality by week does not show a winter-burden mortality that is statistically larger than for past winters. There was no plague.

      However, a sharp “COVID peak” is present in the data, for several jurisdictions in Europe and the USA. This all-cause-mortality “COVID peak” has unique characteristics:
      • Its sharpness, with a full-width at half-maximum of only approximately 4 weeks;
      • Its lateness in the infectious-season cycle, surging after week-11 of 2020, which is unprecedented for any large sharp-peak feature;
      • The synchronicity of the onset of its surge, across continents, and immediately following the WHO declaration of the pandemic; and
      • Its USA state-to-state absence or presence for the same viral ecology on the same territory, being correlated with nursing home events and government actions rather than any known viral strain discernment.

      These “COVID peak” characteristics, and a review of the epidemiological history, and of relevant knowledge about viral respiratory diseases, lead me to postulate that *the “COVID peak” results from an accelerated mass homicide of immune-vulnerable individuals, and individuals made more immune-vulnerable, by government and institutional actions,* rather than being an epidemiological signature of a novel virus, irrespective of the degree to which the virus is novel from the perspective of viral speciation.”

  10. MSM 2 weeks ago: Do not go to the beach! Stay home to stop the spread!
    MSM 1 week ago: Large gatherings for protests and riots are fine. Don’t worry about it.
    MSM next week: Look at this spike! Look how bad Trump is doing!!

  11. This should’ve been news a week ago

  12. The satanic deep state cabal fake news. The enemy of the people.

  13. I like how the media already forgot about the lockdown protests.
    It was smaller, less chanting, less parading, more masks, but they were considered as murderers.

    • And the right wingers all had machine guns

    • Bernard Hargraves | June 6, 2020 at 9:10 PM | Reply

      Umberto2 Some rightfully had guns. MOST did not . Keep your fake news out of the conversation.

    • @Umberto2 Exercising their 2nd amendment right buddy . BUT NOTICE…..NONE OF THE ANTI -LOCKDOWN PROTESTERS WERE VIOLENT !

    • King Schultz | June 6, 2020 at 9:58 PM | Reply

      @Umberto2 NONE of the protesters had “machine guns”. The police might have had select fire weapons, but the protesters did not. There’s a big difference between semi-automatic and fully automatic.

    So one of two things will happen:

    Either 1) There will be a huge spike in COVID cases, and the news media is complicit in encouraging 1000s of people to endanger themselves by abandoning social distancing and exposing themselves to the virus.

    Or 2) There won’t be a spike, we learn the virus was more manageable than the media led us to believe, and it will be impossible to justify the shut down any longer.

    Congrats News Media. You are worthless and do more harm than good.

    • @lok777 Governor’s locked down our country, not trump. Media exaggerated the death toll and risk of the virus, which pushed bad public policy decision. Media has been fueling race issue in the U.S. since Obama became president. Here is an example EVEN YOU can agree with, news media call any brown person who kills terrorists, but if a white person does it they have a mental disorder. do you media is controlled conservatives?

    • ​@morgan mim I am in agreement that the media is not anyone’s friend, other than their owner’s interest. “Fake News” and politicized news stories are not going anywhere though, so people need to be aware and verify their news source. I meant to say that no-one should have been trusting the news blindly in the first place-. and the media has been fueling racial tensions in America since there was a “media” or “America”.

    • @lok777 ever since Nixon’s water gate, media presented itself to the liberal public as defenders of democracy, as champions of public interest. which is changing now, as truth about media is being revealed. Personally, i think we were menipulated by media even on Nixon’s watergate. I think the deep state used the media to bring down Nixon and put its agent (the media) as champion of public interest. Nixon knew the true nature of gov’t (watch his interview in youtube, he flat out says it president does not govern the nation, he can only try to steer it). Nixon did not order Watergate, he did not know about it, when he found out about it, he tried to hide it.

      @lok777 2 wrongs don’t make a right. All they need to do is simply get rid of the crooked cops tbh.

    • @lok777 okay but all 4 policeman are in jail so why they protests till now ?
