USA Today Columnist On Protesters: Run Them Down


GLENN REYNOLDS IS A BLOGGER
KNOWN FOR HIS WEBSITE INSTAPUNDIT. HE DECIDED TO PUT OUT A TWEET
LAST NIGHT, THERE WERE SOME PROTESTERS BLOCKING I-277 IN
NORTH CAROLINA, AND THEY WERE IN THE HIGHWAY AND HE HAD A VERY
SIMPLE TWEET HE PUT OUT. IT’S SAID, “RUN THEM DOWN.” THESE ARE THE SAME CNN
PEOPLE WHO PROTEST WHO ñ WHO DECRY VIOLENCE FROM THE
PROTESTERS. I CAN’T BELIEVE THEY WOULD BE
VIOLENT. I CAN’T BELIEVE THEY WOULD BE
VIOLENT. 1ST OF ALL, THEY ARE PROTESTING
THE SIX AMERICAN COPS ñ AFRICAN-AMERICANS THAT HAVE BEEN
SHOT BY COPS IN CHARLOTTE ALREADY. UNARMED BLACK MEN ARE SHOT EVEN
MORE DISPROPORTIONATELY. JUST BOW YOUR HEAD, FOLLOW
ORDERS. FOLLOW AUTHORITIES. OKAY, THAT VIOLENCE DOESN’T
COUNT. BUT THE PROTESTERS, THEY THREW
A ROCK, IT WAS LOOTING, WHATEVER WAS, MODEM DOWN, KILL
THEM ALL. ME NOT VIOLENT, THEY ARE
VIOLENT. NO GLENN, IT’S ALSO YOU. ONE OF HIS EXCUSES WAS, IT’S
TWITTER, I DIDN’T HAVE ENOUGH SPACE. REALLY? YOU ONLY USED THREE WORDS. YOU HAD MORE CHARACTERS TO USE,
I THINK RUN THEM DOWN WAS PRETTY CLEAR. HE’S ACTUALLY NOT BACKING DOWN
THAT MUCH. YES, TWITTER WAS REALLY
DEPENDENT ON YOUR FREE CONTENT GLENN. HIS IDEA IS, SELF-PRESERVATION. SOME OF THEM WERE DESTROYING
PROPERTY. WAS AT THOSE GUYS IN THE
STREETS? WHO CARES, THEY LOOK THE SAME TO
ME. RUN THEM DOWN. DID THEY DESTROY YOUR PROPERTY? NO, BUT LOOK AT THEM, LOOK AT
THEM. THEY ARE IN THE STREETS, KILL
THEM. WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE? THEY, WHOSE DAY? IN THIS CASE I’M ASKING THAT
QUESTION LITERALLY. OTHER PEOPLE MIGHT HAVE
COMMITTED VIOLENCE IN ANOTHER PART OF TOWN, SO I SEE A
BLACK EYE IN FRONT OF ME, JUST RUN THEM DOWN. I DON’T KNOW WHY BUT PEOPLE ARE
COMPLAINING. THEY SAY BLACK LIVES MATTER,
WILL OF COURSE, ALL LIVES MATTER. OH, BLACK PEOPLE IN THE HIGHWAY? RUN THEM DOWN. I DON’T KNOW WHY THEY SAY
BLACK LIVES MATTER, I CAN’T FIGURE IT OUT. AGAIN, HE DOESN’T RUN FROM IT,
HE GIVES US ANOTHER STATEMENT. “YES, THAT WAS MY POST. WAS BRIEF, SINCE IT WAS TWITTER,
BUT BLOCKING HIGHWAYS IS DANGEROUS AND I DON’T THINK
PEOPLE SHOULD STOP FOR A MOB, ESPECIALLY WHEN IT’S BEEN
VIOLENT.” THE WHOLE MOB, EVERYBODY ON THE
HIGHWAY IS VIOLENT. I’M GOING TO RUN THEM DOWN WITH
MY CAR, I’M NOT GOING TO STOP. I’M THREATENING TO KILL THEM,
BUT THEY ARE VIOLENT. I’M TELLING YOU TO MOW THEM DOWN
IN THE STREETS, BUT THEY ARE VIOLENCE. HE SAYS, “I’VE ALWAYS BEEN A
SUPPORTER OF FREE SPEECH AND PEOPLE ñ PEACEFUL PROTEST. I REALLY SUPPORT PEOPLE
PROTESTING POLICE ACTIONS, AND I’VE BEEN WRITING IN SUPPORT
OF GREATER ACCOUNTABILITY FOR YEARS.” “BUT RIGHTS AREN’T PEACEFUL
PROTESTS. AND LOCKING INTERSTATES AND
TRACKING BELOW ñ TAPPING PEOPLE IN THEIR CARS IS
NOT PEACEFUL PROTEST. IT’S THREATENING
AND DANGEROUS. I WOULDN’T ACTUALLY AIM FOR BE
WILL BLOCKING THE ROAD BUT IT WOULDN’T STOP BECAUSE I FEAR
FOR MY SAFETY, AS I THINK ANY REASONABLE PERSON WOULD.” I WANT TO BE CLEAR, IF SPECIFIC
PEOPLE WERE BLOCKING YOUR CAR AND THEY GOT ON TOP OF YOUR CAR,
AS HAS HAPPENED, AND YOU ARE SCARED, I GET IT BROTHER, I GET
IT. AND I UNDERSTAND, YOU ARE ON A
HIGHWAY IN YOUR CAR IS STUCK IN TRAFFIC, I MEAN THERE’S
BEEN NO SPECIFIC VIOLENCE TOWARD YOU, BUT STILL YOU ARE A
LITTLE FREAKED OUT BY IT. I UNDERSTAND. DOES THAT JUSTIFY RUNNING PEOPLE
OVER? HE’S SAYING, I WON’T STOP. SO WATCH OUT, IF GLENN REYNOLDS
IS IN THE STREET, HE WILL KILL YOU. I DIDN’T SAY THAT, GLEN, YOU ARE
SAYING IT. I WOULD RUN THEM DOWN, I
ENCOURAGE YOU TO RUN THEM DOWN IF THEY ARE IN THE STREETS. BECAUSE THEY MIGHT HAVE BEEN
PART OF A MOB THAT MIGHT HAVE BEEN VIOLENT IN OTHER
PLACES. HE DOESN’T SAY KILL THEM, BUT
EVERY TIME I TALK ABOUT GUNS PEOPLE TELL ME, CARS ARE
LEGAL WEAPONS. YOU SOME WHAT HAPPENED IN NICE,
FRANCE. IF YOU SAY I WILL RUN THEM DOWN
WITH MY CAR, WHAT IS THAT? YOU ARE THREATENING TO KILL
THEM. THAT IS THE OTHER THING ABOUT
THESE RIGHT-WINGERS, THEY ARE SO COWARDLY. I UNDERSTAND YOUR CONCERN IF YOU
ARE STUCK ON THE HIGHWAY, BUT THESE GUYS ARE SO SCARED,
THEY ARE LIKE OH MY GOD SOMETHING MIGHT HAPPEN TO ME! SOMETHING MIGHT HAPPEN TO ME! I’M SO SCARED, I’M JUST WANT TO
KILL EVERYBODY IN MY PATH. THAT PRETTY MUCH DESCRIBES A
RIGHT-WINGER RIGHT THERE. OH MY GOD SOMETHING MIGHT COME
AT ME FROM SYRIA OR IRAQ, LET’S JUST KILL THEM ALL! KILL THEM ALL BECAUSE SOMETHING
MIGHT HAPPEN TO ME. THIS UNARMED BLACK MAN, I DON’T
KNOW, HE LOOKS BIG. A 12-YEAR-OLD WITH A TOY, HE
LOOKS BIGGER THAN 12, I’M SO SCARED, SHOOT AND KILL! YOU SEE HOW VIOLENT THEY ARE. NO GLENN, NO RIGHT-WINGERS, WE
SEE HOW VIOLENT YOU ARE.

  1. I hate Cenk so much. I wouldn't stop either, get out of the damn road am I right?? Stupid people..
    "Oh you got hit standing in a road?" Says the dr treating this dumbass. Need a mental health evaluation as well. ????

  2. Just for fact, much more people are killed as civilian vs Civilian compared to cop vs civilian. As 342 people in the USA have been shot dead by police so far, and this was updated 2 days ago on the 16th May 2019, compared to 5,149 Civilian Vs Civilian shootings. This is very bias with everyone complaining about police shooting to many people, when most of them are justified, and people are ignoring the fact that there are thousands more Civilian on Civilian shootings and homicides/fatal shootings.
