    Fact check: Huntington Beach photos comparing coronavirus protest, BLM protest are real

    Even though reop protesters showed up armed, Huntington Beach police only showed up with a heavy presence at the smaller anti-police violence protest, then allowed racist counter protesters to disrupt the protest.

    The claim: A Black Lives Matter protest at Huntington Beach had heavy police presence with smaller crowds while a coronavirus protest in the same area had a larger crowd with light police presence

    A recent Facebook post compares two photos allegedly from recent protests in Huntington Beach, California. The first photo that claims to come from a beach closure protest appears to have larger crowds with no police, while a Black Lives Matter protest in the same area is shown to have a smaller crowd with police blocking off a main intersection.

    The bottom of the photo is captioned, “1. Huntington beach, covid-19 protest 2. Huntington beach, black lives matter protest.”

    Users noted their frustration with the differences in the photos commenting “one group brought weapons and one group didn’t…” Another comment reads, “In so many other cases involving white protesters, police were there to protect and the protest was allowed to continue. In this case, the police shut it down as an ‘unlawful gathering.’ It’s a double standard.”

    LOL. Conservative groups protesting to reopen the economy are not violent and have no history of violence. They also force out interlopers who are out to create chaos.

    Black Lives Matter has a reputation for violence and they do not force out interlopers who are out to create violence and chaos. Throwing bricks through a window as you chant "peaceful protest" only points out that Democrat protests ARE violent.

    6. police: "...we're not racist and violent !!" Black folk: "... here's some pictures" Police: "oops"
    Stop being violent and quit race baiting and making baseless claims. Jack*sses blame everything on their skin color. It doesn't take much to recall the violence, rioting, looting, and arson the past week.

    The black*ssed jack*sses couldn't even be non violent today.

    I can hold a gun all day and not be violent.

    Antifa/BLM can hold bricks, bottles, and matches and destroy a city.

    It's the person, not the weapon.

    Rioting, looting, and arson have consequences. Until the peaceful protesters separate/isolate the violent ones from their midst, police are going to respond in-strength and the violent ones will tarnish the peaceful ones because they are indistinguishable.

    Looks to me like the Huntington Beach Police know their audience and react accordingly.
