Is this really how a liberal thinks?
Recently, New York Times writer Nikole Hannah-Jones appeared on CBS News and stated that “destroying property which can be replaced is not violence.”
She said, “I think one, we need to be really careful with our language, um, yes it is disturbing to see property being destroyed. It is disturbing to see people taking property from stores, but these are things and violence is when an agent of the state kneels on a man’s neck until all of the life is leached out of his body.”
“Destroying property, which can be replaced, is not violence. To use the exact same language to describe those two things, it’s not moral to do that. I think any reasonable person would say we shouldn’t be destroying other people’s property, but these are not reasonable times.”

However, when a conservative site posted a story about her quote, she decided to retaliate saying that the story was false. Several commentators put her in her place after that.
This tactic is an attempt to silence black journalists and I will not cower.

You literally said, word for word, that destruction of property is not violence. It’s on video. A smarter, cannier communist would’ve found a more subtle way to declare that only his/her political allies have rights, but you clearly are not that person. https://t.co/sVfAgXm5s6
