So You’re a Journalist Covering A Protest

I wonder if this post, written in this particular time and context, is intended to serve as a tacit excusal of journalists being assaulted by “antifa” or other radical left protesters because they wouldn’t stop filming upon request. Because that would be more than a little fucked up. Then again, I tend to be automatically suspicious of people who offer an unconditional defense of left-wing street militancy, especially since the whole point of “black bloc” and similar tactics are to enable people to go wild without fear of legal consequences. Under those conditions, it would be pretty silly to expect every single act of violence to be 100% righteous and justified.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
