A lensman for Seattle TV station KIRO, Jon Jussero, inadvertently came up with an actual journalistic scoop yesterday. He was headed for the King County jail in downtown Seattle for a story when his car was set upon by “mostly peaceful” protesters.
What’s documented above is actual journalism in action. Jussero managed to uncover — all by himself — one of the major factors behind the largest gun-buying surge in American history.
Civil unrest, lawless, frequently violent behavior, masked individuals threatening motorists in the middle of major cities…all without any pushback from police or prosecutors. They operate in the open — in broad daylight here — with total impunity.
Strangely, not all of the reactions to what happened to Mr. Jussero were sympathetic.
Welcome to what your profession has created. Your colleagues call this peaceful, justified, & sorts of things it isn’t. I bet you could feel their peacefulness. Normal Peaceful people don’t act that way, & don’t cause fear. Now you might start telling the truth of who they are.

They’re just peacefully protesting. That’s what you in the news keep telling everybody.

What are you complaining about? This is just the summer of love and peaceful protestors. It’s just a few bad apples, right? I mean, that is the narrative you have pushed for them for years, but now it has come home to roost and you don’t like it. Too bad

Some in the crowd photographed Jussero’s license plate, threatened to break his windows and come to his home to harass him (or worse) some more. He might have called the police for help, but, sadly, the local
politburo city council has already defunded the Seattle police department and driven the Chief out of her job. So who knows how long it would have taken the cops who haven’t quit yet to respond…if at all.
So there you have it. Actual journalisming in action, uncovering the basis for one of the biggest stories of the year, right before your eyes. As Uncle Walter would have intoned in his mellifluous baritone, that’s the way it is…so keep buying those guns and ammo (and get a carry permit) because there’s no sign of this changing any time soon.
