The Free Speech Rally in San Francisco highlights the media’s bias

On October 17, 2020, people tried to exercise their right to free assembly by attending a “Free Speech Rally” in San Francisco’s Civic Center.  They were instantly surrounded by a mob that freely identified itself as Antifa, and several people, including police officers, were badly injured.  Looking at the event in retrospect, what’s apparent is that, as between two violent groups, the media are entirely on the side of the one that hates America.

I covered the event in this post, including the fact that the AP treated the Antifa militants with the utmost gentleness, calling them “critics” and “counterprotesters.”  The videos show that what happened was classic brownshirt tactics: Antifa showed up and instantly began throwing bottles and physically attacking participants.

Since then, the Antifa fighters have justified what happened by saying Philip Anderson, who is black and organized the event, is a Proud Boy.  Therefore, he deserved to lose two teeth when someone sucker-punched him.  Antifa even has a video of Anderson talking about “beating the living s—” out of those who oppose him before the video abruptly cuts off.  That would seem to be the last word on the matter.
