Journalists Rounded Up by Police During Daunte Wright Protest

First amendment fans are not happy.

Published

on

We live in a nation predicated, first and foremost, on the principles of freedom.  The only way to preserve the overarching freedom of the United States is by guaranteeing…you guessed it…even more freedom.  Like the freedom of speech, which allows us to let each other know when things need addressing, politically.

On top of that all important right, we built the freedom of the press, which allows for organized informational freedom to exist.  And while the advent of the infotainment industry has certainly tainted our idea of what journalism is, we mustn’t ever let our guard down when it comes to the restrictions being put on those looking to inform us in earnest.

That’s why the latest news out of Minnesota is so troubling.

Journalists covering a protest in a Minneapolis suburb Friday night were forced on their stomachs by law enforcement, rounded up and were only released after having their face and press credentials photographed.

The incident occurred hours after a judge issued a temporary order barring the Minnesota State Patrol from using physical force or chemical agents against journalists, according to court documents. It also barred police from seizing photographic, audio or video recording equipment, or press passes.

The police defended their actions.

Minnesota State Patrol on Saturday said in a statement, “troopers checked and photographed journalists and their credentials and driver’s licenses at the scene in order to expedite the identification process.”

While some journalists were “detained and released during enforcement actions after providing credentials, no journalists have been arrested,” MSP said.

The incident, while having ended peaceably, should serve as a powerful reminder of just how precious our first amendment truly is.

Megadeth‘s Dave Mustaine broke out in an anti-mask rant on stage during his Sept. 15 concert in New Jersey.

As the concert came to an end, before the last song, Mustaine took a moment to comment on the coronavirus masking mandates flooding the country.

“I just wanna tell you how great it is. Look around you, guys. Look to your right, look to your left, and look how wonderful this is. We’re all here together. We’re not freaking out, and we’re not yelling at people, ‘Wear your fucking mask,'” he said from the stage.

“Listen, it starts with this kind of a sensation that we build right now,” he continued. “We feel together, we feel like [there’s] strength in numbers. We feel like we are invincible. People will not be able to stop us.”

Then he called the whole thing a “tyranny”:

“Right now, what’s going on is tyranny. This is called tyranny. Look it up when you get home. And tyranny isn’t only in government. Tyranny right now is in the schools and tyranny is in the medical business,” he said.

“We have the power, especially us … heavy metal fans, we have the power to change things,” he concluded.

Megadeth’s soon-to-be-released 16th studio album seems set to carry that theme onward. It will be titled, The Sick, The Dying and The Dead.

One ‘Armed Person’ Arrested During J6 Rally… Turns Out to be Undercover Cop

Police in riot gear surrounded and detained a man who was armed at the J6 rally on Saturday.

Published

Police in riot gear surrounded and detained a man who was armed at the J6 rally on Saturday, but putting a fine point on the face, it turned out he was an undercover cop.

There were only a few arrests during the J6 rally. Indeed, there were thousands of police — both in riot gear and undercover — not to mention thousands of reporters, but very few “dangerous” J^ rally goers.

Not many turned out for the rally because most knew that the corrupt law enforcement services in Washington D.C. was looking to take down anyone, for anything, real or fictional. Few real J6 supporters wanted to be mistreated by a corrupt militarized police presence, so the stayed home.

In fact, President Trump even warned people not to go to this thing. Trump called the whole event a “set up.”

“On Saturday, that’s a setup,” Trump said. “If people don’t show up they’ll say, ‘Oh, it’s a lack of spirit.’ And if people do show up they’ll be harassed.”

And he was exactly right. To show what a farcical situation the whole thing was, cops in riot gear surrounded and detained a man because he looked to be armed. And “journalists” were there to lap it all up.

Reporter Ford Fischer recorded the confrontation on video:

But then it was discovered that this doofus was an undercover operative, and the riot cops blew his cover:

What a complete joke:
