Fox News host Jesse Watters aired a segment called “Unmasking Antifa Violence” on his Saturday night show, which featured footage of a violent rally in Portland, Oregon.

“They’re the Brownshirts,” Watters said. “They’re the new street thugs that come in and start cracking people over the skulls.”

The problem? Most of the footage Watters aired was of violent committed by the right-wingers who had gathered, and who then assaulted counter-protesters.

Four people were arrested for violence at last weekend’s rally, two from each side. But the counter-protestors greatly outnumbered the Patriot Prayer crew. By some estimates there were only 20 right-wingers at the rally, meaning 10% of them were arrested for violence.

Specifically the footage Watters aired from the Portland rally showed rightwing violence.

At one point Watters yelped “Oh! he took a shot right there!” after one of the rightwing protestors sucker-punched a counter-protestor in the side of the face.

Watters interviewed a “journalist” named Tim Pool who covers Antifa, and who goes out to the bar with white nationalists after their rallies, but who maintains that he is an impartial observer.

The protest was organized by Washington State U.S. Senate candidate Joey Gibson, who runs an extremist group called Patriot Prayer. It was intended as a sendoff for pro-Trump brawler Tusitala ‘Tiny’ Toese who has been arrested for violent acts at several rallies.

Doctors are urging the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) to be upfront with the American public about side effects from a potential COVID-19 vaccine.

According to CNBC, the doctors are worried that people will refuse a second dose of the vaccine after experiencing the side effects. Vaccines being produced by both Pfizer and Moderna require two doses.

“We really need to make patients aware that this is not going to be a walk in the park,” Dr. Sandra Fryhofer of the American Medical Association told CNBC. “They are going to know they had a vaccine. They are probably not going to feel wonderful. But they’ve got to come back for that second dose.”

Trump’s bizarre Georgia play: GOP in chaos just so he can show he’s still the boss

Published

Despite having begrudgingly allowed the General Services Administration to issue an "ascertainment" that Joe Biden is the president-elect and the normal transition process could begin, Donald Trump is still relentlessly flogging the lie that the election was stolen by the Democrats and he is the rightful winner. And he's sending out a daily fusillade of emails begging for money, with the alleged goal of overturning the results.
