Claim: Democrat group claims people were injured during a Rittenhouse verdict protest by a “Trumper”. Verdict: False.

Share:

MANCHESTER,CT- According to reports, on the evening of November 23rd, a Democrat group tweeted out that a “Trumper,” emboldened by the recent Kyle Rittenhouse verdict, plowed into a group of protesters and got away.

The tweet also claimed that six people were injured during, with one fighting for her life.

The group, who’s Twitter handle is @OccupyDemocrats, tweeted:

“BREAKING: A Trumper ’emboldened by the Kyle Rittenhouse verdict’ plows into a crowd of peaceful protesters marching against Rittenhouse’s acquittal in Connecticut, injuring 6, including a 60-year-old woman who is now fighting for her life. He got away. RT TO HELP POLICE FIND HIM!”

The tweet makes the incident sound horrible, but the truth is reportedly nothing like their account of what transpired. Independent journalist Andy Ngo found the real video of what happened and exposed the group. Watch below:

First, what viewers will notice is that no one got hurt. The car slowed down to nearly a stop, but then gently pushed through until they got out of the car’s way. Second, the protesters were blocking the road with their illegal protest.

Lastly, the group made an assumption that the person was “emboldened” by the Rittenhouse verdict, since there is no actual proof of this. The person was probably just wanting to get home.

Ngo posted a follow-up tweet, saying:

“Update: @OccupyDemocfrats deleted their tweet after I informed their followers that video contradicted what they claimed. Occupy Democrats falsely said a woman was “fighting for her life” after a Trump supporter “plowed” into #BLM protesters in Connecticut.”

Occupy Democrats then issued a tweet stating:

“CORRECTION: Last night, we tweeted out initial reports regarding a possible car attack in Connecticut that turned out to be false. The motive/political alignment of the driver remain unknown. None of the victims were hospitalized. We sincerely apologize for the mistake.”

Fox 61 stated that there were several organizations at the demonstration, which was organize by Power Up Connecticut; all demonstrators were protesting the Rittenhouse verdict. 

According to reports, the Rittenhouse verdict has sparked demonstrations nationwide. In Kenosha, protesters gathered outside the courthouse, reacting in anger and frustration to the verdict. Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers had activated some 500 National Guard members to be on standby to support public safety efforts if needed.

In Portland, Oregon, the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office declared a riot after a violent, destructive group began to breach the gate into the Multnomah County Detention Center.” According to the sheriff’s office, about two dozen people had gathered in front of the gate around 9 p.m., with some allegedly heard saying, “burn it down.”

Police stated that the rear window of a Portland Police vehicle was shattered as well as the windows on a local business. Police issued five citations and 17 warnings, and one person was arrested for a warrant.

In New York City, hundreds of demonstrators marched across the Brooklyn Bridge and gathered outside the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, holding signs with photo of the two men killed by Rittenhouse. Nearly 100 people took to the streets in Oakland, California, shouting “revolution nothing else” while marching in response to the verdict.

Demonstrators gathered in Chicago and Columbus, Ohio to denounce the acquittal. President Joe Biden, who at first stood by the jury’s decision only to later back-step, said in a statement:

“While the verdict in Kenosha will leave many Americans feeling angry and concerned, myself included, we must acknowledge that the jury has spoken.”

Sources tell Law Enforcement Today that the group in Manchester that was “attacked” includes some of the same suspects who advanced a racial hoax at the high school recently.  In case you missed it, here are the details:

Another racial hoax? Protest planned at CT high school for “incident” that video shows probably never happened.

The following contains editorial content which is the opinion of the writer.

MANCHESTER, CT- We’ll take “Things that never happened for 1,000…Alex.”

Or at least never happened to the extent that is being alleged. Last month, a high school football game took place between East Catholic High of Manchester, CT., and Montville High School, located in southeastern Connecticut.

The contest took place on East Catholic’s home field.

After the closely contested game, which East Catholic won in overtime, it is alleged that a racially motivated incident occurred between East Catholic football players and fans toward the Montville cheerleaders, according to a Montville High cheerleader named Nadya Wynn, 16.

According to WFSB in Hartford, at the game’s conclusion, Wynn said they were getting their belongings together after the game when the alleged incident occurred.

 

“The student section came rushing down and over to where we were standing, and they were cheering on their team at first and we ignored them and walked to get our bags. The football team [East Catholic] came in and started stomping on our stuff.”

 

Wynn said the cheerleaders got their things together and started walking toward the bus.

“These three or four kids said, ‘Go home n-word, go home n-word’ to me and they were just screaming,’ she said.

We know that at least part of that story is not true. In exclusive video obtained by Law Enforcement Today, as well as photographs of the post-game, the East Catholic football team never went near where the Montville cheerleaders were gathered. In other words, the football team did not “stomp” their bags as Wynn alleged.

As might be expected, the superintendent of Montville responded to the allegations in a statement:

“Based upon the serious nature of accounts we have received regarding the incident which occurred at Friday night’s football game against East Catholic (which was hosted by East Catholic), I have requested that CIAC [Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference] conduct an external investigation. CIAC has appointed an investigator to gather the evidence necessary to gain a complete understanding of the event.”

East Catholic’s president, Sean Brennan issued a statement as well the following Monday:

“We continue to investigate issues raised at last Friday’s football game against Montville High School and, while we do not believe anything inappropriate was said, we take this matter seriously and have met with our student body to reiterate our Student Code of Conduct and the behavioral expectations we have for our students.

We have been in contact with the CIAC and will cooperate with any next steps, and I ask if anyone has information which would assist in our investigation, please feel free to share it with me.”

As one might expect, the alleged incident fired up the race hustlers, including a woman, Keren Prescott, who has made it her life’s work over the past year or two to insert herself into stirring up racial strife in Connecticut towns.

Last year, for example, she targeted a business in Somers, CT., for Black Lives Matter protests because they had the audacity to support police.

Somers, a rural town located about 20 miles north of Hartford is a sleepy, well-to-do community which is hardly ground zero for the KKK. Likewise, she also organized BLM protests in the adjacent town of Stafford Springs, also not a town known for racial strife. In other words, Prescott is a “solution” in search of a problem.

According to the Journal Inquirer, Prescott seized upon the allegations made by the Montville student to once again make matters much worse. After the alleged incident, Prescott and a group called PowerUp CT organized a series of protests over what they claim are continuing racial issues at East Catholic.

“All these acts are horrible, but when I saw spitting was involved that just sent me to another place,” said Prescott, who last year was spit at by a woman during a protest at the state Capitol building in Hartford.

Prescott was apparently unhappy with Brennan’s statement, saying he was “showing his true colors” by dismissing Wynn’s account of the incident.

“That means one of two things to me: That means he doesn’t believe any of what these girls say happened, or he believes this stuff happened, but he doesn’t deem it as inappropriate,” Prescott said.

During the incident at the state Capitol last year, the woman who was accused of spitting at Prescott was given accelerated rehabilitation and has to complete 100 hours of “anti-hate” curriculum over two years as a form of probation.

Prescott however wasn’t happy with that, probably hoping the woman would have gotten the firing squad. As a first-time offender, the suspect, Yuliya Gilshteyn had the ability to apply for the program.

“This just set a precedent that you can spit on black people if you’re white, you can call them a racial slur, and you can commit a hate crime and you will go unpunished,” Prescott whined. “All it did was pave the way for more hate crimes like that to happen.”

Prescott also hates herself some Donald Trump and supporters of the now former president.

A real wordsmith. 

Here’s another protest in yet another sleepy Connecticut community, Winsted:

Prescott wanted towns which play East Catholic to boycott playing against the school until students are held accountable.

She also said she was going to write the CIAC and demand disciplinary action for an incident of which there is no evidence backing the allegations.

For his part, Brennan said the school, which has a minority population of about 30% doesn’t have any type of rampant issues with racism, The Day reported.

He said any such incidents of racism are handled by the school, including one video from last year where two students used racial slurs on a social media site. He said any such incidents result in consequences for those who offend.

Brennan noted that last year, the school started a “Students of Color” union at the request of students, and said staff members have done diversity, inclusion, and equity training. He also met with and agreed to work with a group called Veterans for Black Lives Matter and the Connecticut Youth Forum.

According to The Norwich Bulletin, Montville High School officials released a letter last week in which they accepted an apology from East Catholic. The CIAC has said both schools will be sending student reps to an upcoming training session on sportsmanship.

“We look forward to bringing together student leaders from both of our schools to ensure we all learn from this incident,” officials wrote.

As far as Prescott goes, she is nothing but a professional agitator. Her Instagram account is full of pro-BLM, anti-police posts. While the organization is based in Manchester, CT., Prescott seems obsessed with trying to find racism in small Connecticut towns.

She also bought into another racist hoax, the discovery of “nooses” at an Amazon construction site in the town of Windsor, a suburb of Hartford.

They decided to show up for a Trump support rally in Glastonbury, another upper-middle class community just east of Hartford, again hardly a stronghold of the KKK.

A tour through her Instagram account found a number of protests organized throughout northern Connecticut, most not in response to any particular incident but because Prescott and her group are simply trying to remain relevant.

As expected, she is also a big fan of George Floyd. On the one year anniversary of Floyd’s death, she posted on her Instagram, referring to him as a “father, son, friend, brother and lover.” She forgot criminal and drug addict.

Prescott is planning a 12-hour protest at East Catholic on October 21 (honestly, does this woman actually have a job?). Despite there being zero video evidence (and face it, everyone has cameras on their smartphones) that what is alleged to have occurred after the football game did in fact occur, Prescott is intent on stirring up trouble and furthering the racial divide. It apparently must make her feel important.
