America won’t soon forget Friday, May 29th 2020, for this was a day in which Americans of all shapes and sizes and political leanings came together to demand justice for George Floyd of Minneapolis.
Floyd died in police custody earlier in the week after having his airway obstructed by a Minneapolis police officer who kneeled on his neck for 9 minutes, all while the handcuffed and prone victim was pleading with officers and letting them know that he could not breathe.
Protests sprung up around the nation in a hurry, including in Altanta, Georgia, where CNN’s headquarters were vandalized.
At the White House, it was Fox News’ turn to take the heat.
An angry mob of rioters stoked by the death of a black man at the apparent hand of a Minneapolis cop turned its rage on a Fox News crew early Saturday, chasing and pummeling the journalists outside the White House in a harrowing scene captured on video.
Veteran reporter Leland Vittert was covering protests in Lafayette Park just before1 a.m. with three crewmembers when as many as a dozen masked protesters surrounded them, in footage caught by the Daily Caller.
After a protester lunged at Vittert while he was reporting on air, the team made a beeline out of the park, with the hostile and growing crowd in pursuit.
Vittert and the crew were punched and hit with projectiles as they fled, and a Fox News camera was broken when a member of the mob tried to grab it.
Video of the incident was quickly going viral on social media, but we must warn you that what you are about to see is littered with vulgarity.
There is no telling what’s in store for the nation’s capital tonight, as Americans continue to unite and gather in the name of George Floyd.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
