Christmas Day race violence that didn't make the national media

The left-wing racial agitators have been working overtime to exploit every incident involving fatalities and injuries to black perpetrators, and it is having some effect.  In Oakland, California, where a dedicated cohort of a couple of hundred hard leftists use any opportunity to violently demonstrate, a Christmas Day outburst of violence saw windows smashed and the city’s Christmas tree vandalized.  Joel Pollak of Breitbart writes:

The protest was called “No Time Off,” in defiance of the holiday: “The idea is to give no time off to police in the context of racial discrimination and state violence happening every day,” one demonstrator told the local NBC News affiliate.

Activists from “Occupy Oakland” called the anti-police protests the “Best Xmas party of the year,” but for police forced to control dozens of violent protestors, it was anything but. Likewise for a photojournalist who was struck on the hand and injured by a bottle thrown by demonstrators, according to Evan Sernoffsky of the San Francisco Chronicle.

AT contributor Colin Flaherty has produced a video chronicling 3 other incidents involving black violence directed at cops on Christmas Day.

It is time to face facts: the left sees an opportunity to achieve its goal of revolution by fomenting widespread racial violence and will stop at nothing to, in Alinsky’s words, “rub raw” the wounds that afflict our past.  They will not succeed, even with occasional support from political figures like de Blasio, Holder, and Obama.  But they can inflict pain and suffering, and that they are doing.
