It’s truly sad. Imagine owning a family business that has been around for decades just to see your American Dream burnt and destroyed in a controversial police shootout in your hometown. You didn’t know the person who was killed, the rioters and looters didn’t even know the alleged victim and don’t really care who you are or what your business means to the community.
Blaze TV reporter Elijah Schaffer was and still is in Kenosha.
Wisconsin, to cover the criminal riots raging in the city following the shooting of Jacob Blake during an altercation with police. Blake is alive, but is said to be paralyzed.
During his extensive daytime coverage of Kenosha,.
which obviously sees the cowards who set this town on fire hiding until sundown, Schaffer spoke to a clearly distraught local contractor on Tuesday who was assessing the damage caused to its factory.
“What I see, I was not prepared,” the man told Schaffer. “I knew it was going to be a disaster, but I didn’t know what a disaster looked like until I saw it.”
After telling Schaffer how his business was started by his parents 40 years earlier and that the business had been in this particular location for 31 years, the owner spoke of his family’s disbelief.
“It’s emotionally hurtful, but we didn’t do anything to anybody. Why did we deserve it?”

“They are very upset about it,” continued the owner of the company.
“It’s emotionally painful. But we didn’t do anything to anyone. Why do we deserve it?”
It must stop.
The mafia wields too much power without too much reluctance on the part of the authorities, and local politicians must develop the backbone or abandon the ‘we care about peaceful protests’ lie and return to serving the communities they were put on. in place to serve – if ever. finished.
These are riots.
There is looting. There were very few protests in Kenosha after the Blake incident. If so, the actions of some can only be interpreted as a crime, as there doesn’t seem to be much difference between that and “activism” these days.
