Japanese Reporter Tries To Prove BLM Is Peaceful, Leaves With A Black Eye 15 Minutes Later

Video: A Japanese Artist, Activist, And Reporter Headed To The CHAZ Protest To Prove That Black Lives Matter In Seattle Was Peaceful. 15 Minutes Later He Left With A Black Eye.

Taro Osamu, a Japanese artist and activist, headed to the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone (CHAZ) in order to prove that the occupied community was “peaceful.” Things didn’t quite go as he planned.

When he arrived, Osamu noted that there were multiple instances of gunshots and that “at least one boy died,” but hilariously maintained that it was otherwise a nice place.

Then tragedy struck! Osamu was attacked by a rioter on scene and beat to a pulp. Who could have seen that coming? Everyone that has been paying attention.

“I was beaten up in 15 minutes,” Osamu tweeted shortly thereafter. “I will go home for today.”

Unfortunately, Osamu didn’t seem to quite learn his lesson. The next day he was patched up and back out on the street, fighting the power with the same hooligans that left him in a bruised pulp.

One Twitter user commented on his video that other (American) reporters have also been attacked in the Seattle, and that the rioters might otherwise be peaceful if they weren’t “reacting” to the camera. Apparently, we’re to believe that these are some uncharacteristically violent Amish protesters who explode in sudden rage when filmed.

Osamu: “A black grandmother who is three times as heavy as me…”

Osamu has been zipping around the country attempting to seed Japan’s press with propaganda favoring the side of Antifa. He described President Trump as using dog whistles, commented that he was shocked that George Floyd wasn’t killed in “the ghetto”, and made one odd reference to the weight of a protester who was thanking him for his coverage:

The following is machine translated from Osamu’s report.

“When asked, “Where did you come from?” he said, “It’s from Japan.” A black grandmother, who is three times as heavy as me, came up in tears and asked, “I want to thank you! But now I have COVID-19, can I shake hands?” It was “Of course,” I shook hands. It was a hard, rough, but warm, gentle hand. I somehow remembered what life she had lived. The warmth of this hand. I felt that I had an obligation to convey it to the world.”

A defiant Osamu returns! With A Picture Of A Smiling Black Man To “Prove” The Protests Weren’t Violent

Apparently getting bashed in the face isn’t enough to prove to a determined Japanese leftist reporter that these are not simply peaceful protests. Some people just can’t be saved.

Osamu returned to CHAZ and defiantly took a picture with a black man in order to prove that “this was not a violent protest.” His words, not ours.

The hilariously subtle racism of his own reporting will forever be lost on him.

Video: “Delete That Sh*t” CHAZ Organizers Rush To Purge Evidence Of Latest Shooting

Another Night In The Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone Ends In Gunshots—Organizers Attempt To Steal Phones And Delete Footage

Organizers of the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone in Seattle have been attempting to delete footage of the shootings that are plaguing the makeshift community now occupying the lawless streets surrounding Cal Anderson Park.

The shooting occurred right as the streamer began to walk away:

Tonight’s second shooting left at least one individual in serious condition according to spokeswoman Susan Gregg of the Harborview Medical Center where the victim was brought. An account dedicated to updates on the situation in CHAZ bemoaned the lack of a police response, sidestepping the irony of wishing for a greater police presence at a protest dedicated to defunding the police and occupying one of their precincts.

Then the streamer had his phone stolen…

In the latest tampering with evidence and attempt to censor important news from the public eye, one member of the zone snatched the phone out of a streamers hands then brought it to the armed security who had been responding to the shooting that happened just moments prior to the altercation.

“You delete this footage, man,” Oscar Freeman, the thief, warns the streamer, unknowingly broadcasting his face on the ongoing live stream. “I don’t give a f*** who you with.” Freeman then jogs off to the John Brown Gun Club security detail that have become the enforcers of the CHAZ.

Freeman continued to record throughout the entire ordeal, accidentally showing the face of at least one member of the security detail who had lowered his bandanna.

Freeman eventually got in touch with a member of the club LARPing under the nom de guerre “James Madison” and the two scurried off together in order to attempt a deletion of the footage. The camera continued to roll throughout this process.

CHAZ is “too much of a bullet magnet” to continue, says streamer:

Shawn Gui, the victim of the theft, says he believes that the protest zone is finished. Describing CHAZ as “way too much of a bullet magnet right now,” he told his audience that he had no intention of returning to film streams at the location later on.

Later that evening, “Madison” tweeted out a string explaining his actions, stating that it wouldn’t be good for CHAZ to have mass media all over the shooting and that’s why he asked for the streamer to delete the video. He seems to have ignored the part where he and Freeman were attempting to access the device, likely to delete the video on their own.
