Video: Conservative Reporter Assaulted By Fake Press (BLM) In Rochester NY

I cannot say who came up with these anti-camera battle cries. But it’s easy to understand why protesters use them: to shape the narrative the country sees about the protests. And that narrative, in my estimation after many weeks covering street clashes in a city where I lived for 15 years, is 90 percent bullshit.

I wondered, the first time I attended the protests at the federal building back in July, who all these young people with PRESS emblazoned on their jackets or helmets were. I asked one such guy who he worked for.

“Independent Press Corps,” he told me. As it turned out, dozens of other young PRESS people happened to work for the same outfit, which I at first assumed was a fancy way of saying “I want to report stuff and stream it on my Instagram.”

This turned out to be naive. The IPC is an organized group in league with the activists, and it is usually their footage you see streamed online and recycled on the news: mostly innocent protestors being harassed and beaten by police.

But we have another wave of fake news reporters where they don’t bother to get credentials, they are BM rioters dressed up as reporters.

Last night conservative reporter Elijah Schaffer was assaulted by Black Lives Matter rioters dressed up as press in Rochester.

By dressing up as reporters, the activists can help to dox people who oppose the riots ideologically and spin a narrative of police “going after press” if they are arrested.
“Fake press is harassing me here. Assaulting me with their camera,” Schaffer tweeted with a video of the incident. He noted that they are putting his name and face in chat rooms “trying to get me jumped.”

Elijah managed to capture the moment where one police officer was badly injured.

ANTIFA and BLM use fake “press” and fake medics as human shields, it’s part of the black block tactics of warfare.
