  • NPR allegations of right wing extremists.
During the Leftwing insurrection of 2020 NPR made the false claim that alleged "white supremacists" were using vehicles to run down alleged "peaceful" rioters based on an edited video from Louisville, Kentucky.[12] The allusion was intended to bring to mind a 2017 Charlottesville incident in which a protester was run over. In Alamosa, Colorado a 27-year-old white Black Lives Matter protester shot an innocent driver in the head who was trying to avoid protesters blocking the street at an intersection.[13] Another was shot in Provo, Utah.[14] After riling leftists with false reporting,[15] NPR later had to walk back its claim about the Louisville incident when it was discovered that the driver, who was black, was in fact the victim of a violent BLM assault.[16]
