UN Says US Should Consider Journalist Scum Above the Law

The United Nations is like the bizarro world Jewish mirror universe of the United States. It serves the same function, going around the world telling people what to do. But the UN can also tell the United States what to do, from its office in New York.

The United Nations of course shills for the Jewish journalism industry, and thinks they should be allowed to start riots.

The Independent:

Journalists covering protests in the United States should be permitted to do their jobs without fear of attack or arrest, the United Nations human rights office said on Friday.

A mounting crackdown on reporters by authorities has been seen in recent weeks as the Trump administration has deployed federal agents to several cities where demonstrators are calling for racial justice.

And now, UN human rights spokesperson Liz Throssell has spoken out to protect the press.

“[The protests] must be able to continue without those participating in them and also the people reporting on them, the journalists, risking arbitrary arrest or detention, being subject to unnecessary disproportionate or discriminatory use of force or suffering other violations of their rights,” she said at a news conference in Geneva.

Her comments come after weeks of US authorities attacking and arresting the journalists who are covering the historic racial protests sparked by the police killing of George Floyd.

On 1 July, Andrew Buncombe, chief US correspondent with The Independent, was arrested in Seattle while covering the police clearance of the Capitol Hill Organised Protest (CHOP). He was charged with failure to disperse despite repeatedly identifying himself as a journalist. He was held for at least eight hours before being released.

In response, The Independent launched a campaign to protect journalists called Journalism Is Not a Crime.

Why should journalists be above the law? Why would we give them special protections and make it legal for them to riot?

Someone should have answered that question when they started promoting the concept. These people go out there and say “a press pass should be a license to riot” – yeah, okay, why?

Everyone knows these journalists do riot.

They have to get beaten up and spend their eight hours in jail before being released without charge like all the other rioters.
