The media and Left are running with a story about a BLM protester who was shot/ “murdered” in Austin, TX during a “peaceful” protest; BLM doing their typical thing of blocking traffic and intimidating drivers. What the media and Left all leave out of their “reporting” is Garrett Foster was heavily armed with an AK-47, but there’s more. This “peaceful” protester just a few hours before he was killed gave an interview calling those he stands opposed to ‘pussies’…
GF: It’s uh AK-47
Intvwr: Why’d you got it out tonight?
GF: They [Police] don’t let us march in the streets anymore, so gotta practice some.. some of our rights [2nd Amend]
Intvwr: Do you feel like you’ll need to use it?
GF: No, I think the uh.. I mean if I use it against the cops I’m dead. And I think all the people that hate us and you know want to say shit to us are too big of pussies to stop and actually do anything about it…
Here are the videos in order/ context:
YES, Foster legally owned the weapon and had a right to carry, but taking it to a “protest,” that is rarely peaceful, where the people he’s surrounding himself with are bonafide troublemakers was asking for trouble. And we know this from the past, the moment someone lays on their horn these monsters ATTACK. That’s what happened here. They blocked traffic, we hear the horn go off and you can see part of the crowd stops and turns toward the car, where moments later shots rang out. The driver of the vehicle, now in custody, must’ve felt threatened enough to pull their gun and start firing.
Did Foster raise his weapon at the driver? This photo says yes.
‘Austin Police Chief Brian Manley said reports indicated Foster was carrying a rifle when he approached the suspect’s vehicle. The suspect then shot out of their car at Foster, according to APD. Manley said that the person who shot Foster called 911 to report that someone had pointed a gun at his vehicle and that he fired at the person pointing the gun. That suspect was detained and cooperating with officers, police said Sunday morning.’ ~ KVUE
Surely there is more video and we will learn the truth as to what triggered this tragedy. That being said what did Leftists think was going to happen? Their ilk around the country have assaulted people for less! Did they really think this person in the car was just gonna let them talk them intimidate or possibly pull them out of the car like others? We already had a BLM “protester” fire into an SUV under similar circumstances in Utah several weeks ago, maybe this driver saw that and felt they were in the same situation when they saw Foster with his AK 47 and wasn’t going to take chances!?
I told you all this was coming and there will be more shootings. This will escalate into a larger armed conflict because the Left is showing no signs of backing down from their hysteria if you do not bow down to their agenda.
