MSNBC Reporter Says Riots Are 'Not, Generally Speaking, Unruly' - While Standing In Front Of a Burning Building


MSNBC wants you to know the riots in Minneapolis are “not, generally speaking, unruly."

Sure, they’ve shaken the city to its core, left at least one person dead and reduced multiple buildings – including the police precinct – to piles of ash. And yes, they’ve spawned multiple similar uprisings across the country where multiple people have been shot. 

But they’re definitely peaceful. Because that’s the narrative.

In fact, here’s an MSNBC reporter speaking live from the scene in Minneapolis, telling viewers that the situation “is mostly a protest. It is not generally speaking unruly” – even as a building is engulfed in flames behind him.

"I want to be clear on how I characterize this. This is mostly a protest. It is not, generally speaking, unruly," he said, as flames shoot up into the sky just feet from where he's standing.


The riots in Minneapolis have left many buildings completely destroyed, including retail stores adn privately owned businesses. The police precinct was torched after the mayor surrendered it to the rioters, citing public safety.

But yes, everything's fine. Nothing to see here, folks.

Just a "protest."
