Deray McKesson Schools Wolf Blitzer

Activist smacks down Wolf Blitzer: ‘You are suggesting broken windows are worse than broken spines’

CNN host Wolf Blitzer seemed determined to make the focus of his Tuesday interview with Deray McKesson about the amount of trouble protesters had caused in Baltimore, but the community organizer managed to turn the tables on the veteran journalist. “You want peaceful protests, right?” Blitzer began his interview by asking McKesson.

“Yes,” McKesson replied, after being momentarily taken aback by the obvious nature of the question. “Remember, the people that have been violent since August have been the police. When you think about the 300 people that have been killed this year alone. Like that is violence.”
