For months now, the liberal media have been downplaying and, in many cases, lying about the widespread violence and destruction caused by Antifa and Black Lives Matter. Calling them “mostly peaceful protests,” so-called journalists like MSNBC’s Ali Velshi and CNN’s Omar Jimenez would stand in full view of burning buildings and claims things were “not, generally speaking, unruly,” and “fiery but mostly peaceful.”

Well, according to an Axios report featuring data from the Insurance Information Institute, those “mostly peaceful protests” have left behind upwards of $2 billion of destruction and stolen property in their wake.

Shockingly, CBS Evening News anchor Norah O’Donnell actually reported the statistic during Wednesday’s newscast. She was the only broadcast journalist to report the statistic on-air. “Nationwide unrest sparked by the police killing of George Floyd could lead to the highest insurance payout of its kind in history,” she announced.

Despite this admission, O’Donnell still had to squeeze in the liberal media’s favorite qualifier, adding: “The protests in late spring were mostly peaceful, but damage from looting and arson will cost $1 to $2 billion in claims. That’s according to the Insurance Information Institute. And that would eclipse the previous high, the 1992 riots that followed the acquittal of four officers in the beating of Rodney King.”
