CNN Guest Who Runs GoFundMe for Cop Shooter, Claims Atlanta Antifa Riots Were Not Violent
A CNN guest made the ridiculous claim the Atlanta Antifa riots featuring burning police cars, smashed business windows, and roman candles fired at police were not violent.

Freelance “Journalist” David Peisner, apparently sitting safe and secure in his apartment, told CNN’s Pamela Brown that the only acts of violence he saw were when police officers were arresting Antifa rioters as they destroyed downtown Atlanta.
“You keep using these words ‘violent, violent, violent, violent’… The only acts of violence against people I saw were police tackling protesters,” Peisner said.
Peisner continued to bloviate and added that the destruction of physical property is not the same as violence against humans, so it is acceptable.
“I think there’s a real blurring of the lines in the use of the word violence. Is property destruction violence? To some people, it certainly is. But, you know, this idea that breaking windows or other acts of property destruction are the same as actual violence against humans, it’s kind of a dangerous and slippery concept,” Peisner continued.
The interview was immediately the target of Libs of TikTok, who pointed out the Peisner interview, with one user comparing it to CNN’s coverage of the 2020 “Black Lives Matter” protests when a reporter said on-air that the riots were “mostly peaceful” as cars were ablaze behind him.
CNN’s guest suggests we shouldn’t use the word “violent” to describe the Antifa riots in Atlanta tonight.

Gov. Brian Kemp (R-GA) condemned the riots, vowing that people involved would not be tolerated.
“While the state continues to respect peaceful protest, acts of violence against person or property will not be tolerated. Those committing such unlawful acts will be arrested and prosecuted fully,” Kemp said.
The riots were in response to the Fool Around Find Out (FAFO) shooting of a man protesting against the construction of a Law Enforcement Training center. The man shot and injured a Georgia State Trooper, and the officers returned fire, killing him.
Strangely enough, the left continuously claims that Law Enforcement officers aren’t adequately trained, so a training center is being built to raise the training level to a higher standard.
Atlanta Mayor Andre Dickens stated that the groups doing the rioting are coming from outside the state. Shockingly Dickens isn’t concerned about naming the groups doing the rioting, Stating,
“I don’t get into the names. I don’t know all the organizations. I’ll let y’all decide who did it.”
