A motorcyclist decided that enough was enough today when he rode upon a group of protesters in his San Francisco neighborhood. They were having a “die in” to protest the new healthcare reform bill. This required them to lay in the streets for 10 minutes, pretending to be dead.
The game of pretend ended when a BMW sportbike’s driver revved his engine and carefully walked the motorcycle through. Protesters quickly awoke and began to flee; some chased the motorcycle stopping short of assaulting the driver.
The media was quick to report the story as “biker plows through protest.” The biker, however, did not “plow” through anything. He revved his engine. No one was hurt. His greatest crime was likely that he was sick of protesters blocking roads.
It didn’t take long for the media to paint the biker, who reportedly has an Asian descent wife, as a racist due to being the admin on a “white privilege” farce page on Facebook.
Watch the video, and then decide if this is accurate reporting:
Now video of Biker “plowing through protest.”
I’m not sure how this woman thought she was going to die.
