You may remember hearing about the May Day melee in MacArthur park in Los Angeles, during which the LAPD was drawn into a situation where they found it necessary to use force against a crowd of thugs and rambunctious illegal aliens holding a so-called "peaceful protest" calling for special privileges and amnesty for illegal aliens. The LAPD has undergone a lot of criticism for their handling of the situation, especially as a lot of bystanders and press members who failed to comply with police orders were caught in the crossfire.
Of course, what the liberally biased media often fails to report is that the police were provoked by a group of slime-ball agitators and anarchist terrorists, who hurled insults, frozen bottles of water turned into rock-hard missiles of ice, bottles filled with urine, and other peaceful protests at the heroic officers, all the while hiding behind a wall of "peacefully assembling" accomplices (with children!) who acted as a shield during the seditious attacks on police officers. Buying into the politically correct but factually erroneous version of events, LA's mayor, city council and police chief also refuse to lay any blame on, or make much mention of, the rioters who were directly responsible for causing and escalating events. TV camera-persons claiming that they were attacked by the LAPD can be seen on tape being pushed over by their reporter colleagues. Everyone refuses to acknowledge the fact that TV reporters on the sidelines hit with rubber bullets were most likely hit by accident, and never take into consideration that guns and rubber ammunition are hardly 100% accurate, nor that sticking around during a melee in order to grab some footage when they've been ordered to leave puts oneself at risk of getting hit by stray bullets. And that this is a risk the media chose to take by ignoring police warnings.
To add further insult to injury, as the public, the media and city officials take the side of the criminal rioters and foreign invaders over our own brave and much maligned protectors, another incident occurred this past weekend further proving that the media and the LA city government is in league with criminals, pandering to the interests of illegals over their own citizens.
An anti-illegal immigration rally was planned in Leimert Park on June 24. However, another group of violent agitators were allowed to take over this park, and the groups with the legal permit to hold their rally had their right to peaceful assembly violated. The LAPD, stinging from a lack of community or official support, were justifiably unwilling to clear out the terrorists a second time. And the police blocked access to the park so that the anti-illegal immigration could not enter, fearing a "mini riot." Read a slightly slanted story on the events here. Of course, a group of people not in line with the leftist view on illegal immigration being violently intimidated by radicals and morons like ANSWER Los Angeles will not generate as much news as perceived infringements against the rights of the press or antagonistic leftist organizations.
Totalitarian, bullying and violent leftism wins again.
