Protesters Throw Rocks at MSNBC’s Chris Hayes as Tensions Escalate in Ferguson

Andrew Johnson, National Review, August 18, 2014

MSNBC’s Chris Hayes dodged a few rocks thrown towards him and a colleague while reporting live from the scene in Ferguson, Mo., on Monday night. The incident took place as demonstrators appeared to move back in the face of a strong police presence.

“People are angry, man–they’re really angry,” Hayes said, assuring viewers that he and host Craig Melvin were fine. Protesters yelled at Hayes and Melvin to “tell the true story.”

At around 11 p.m., the situation in the Missouri city shifted from a more peaceful one to tense in a matter of minutes.

[Editor’s Note: Another journalist for a news source called Credo had his laptop stolen while reporting at the scene. The video is below.]

    I’d pay them to throw rocks at Chris Hayes.

    But seriously: so much for “peaceful protests.” That’s all I hear. Peaceful protests, peaceful protests. Give me a break.

    • B.A_2014

      Dey beez fightin for them cival rites, no wa mean?

    • John Smith

      Ah yes, Chris Hayes…typical liberal, leftist, “anti-racist”, effeminate anti-white male.

      The “people of color” that he pleasures himself to nightly have turned on even him.

      The “people of color” that he has spent a lifetime desperately trying to impress and curry favor with don’t differentiate between him and a klansman.

      He’s probably squealing, “but I’m on YOUR side; why are you doing this to me”.

      Hand wringing from Hayes to commence in 3…2…1…

    • Jack Burton

      Chris Hayes looks like one off those despicable and pathetic male feminists. He looks like Madow after a sex change.

      Throw rocks at him, throw one for me.

      • IstvanIN

        Hey, don’t insult Rachel Maddow!

        • Jack Burton

          He hosted her show, they’re BFFs.

      • benvad

        Sex change operation? Like turning Maddow from a man to the womanly figure of Hays?

      • Dave West

        I’m starting to think Hayes and Maddow are the same person with two slightly different disguises!

  • Dave West

    Maybe i’ve been a little harsh on these “peaceful” protestors, they’ve done one thing right; maybe they’re not as useless as I thought!

    • propagandaoftruth

      Please please please God or the Peacock Angel or Satan or whoever runs things here, please please please…

      Let Chris Hayes get clunked in the head real good on national tv live and wake up with some sense or too brain damaged to ever function again.

      Pretty pleeeeeeeease…..

      • Dave West

        I’d like to say that maybe it would knock some sense into him, but that is really a far-off pipe dream; especially given that he is paid to be a self-hating libtard.

        • propagandaoftruth

          As a former libtard traitor this is my prayer. Dark Enlightenment or Death. I pray for their dark enlightenment first, then their death if not.

          The wages of treachery are death, one way or another.

          Get it or get out of the way forever by getting made good, libtard traitors. Rock to the head. Death by your negro fetish. Very karmic.

    • John R

      Yeah, in that case, even I can thank Michael Brown for this!

  • 0bama is deeply concerned about the safety of a White journalist.

  • Incidentally, there is also a local eyeball TV news reporter in St. Louis named Chris Hayes.

    I noticed 250 people rallied and protested at CNN’s headquarters in Atlanta yesterday. Since this was an undertow-sympathetic crowd, I don’t know why. Still, fewer people were actually watching CNN at the time. (Rimshot)

    • Nancy

      They’re “protesting” every day down here. I think they chose the CNN building because they thought it would be the best way to get on TV.

      • What does getting on CNN have to do with getting on TV?

        Let me put it to you another way:

        If a tree falls in the forest, and CNN or MSNBC covers it, does it really make a sound?

  • MekongDelta69

    I LOVE when the Left gets a taste of its own DIE-versity they so cherish and grovel to so much.

    • Jack Burton

      Seeing white liberal traitors get their just desserts is the sweetest schadenfreude of all.

  • Dave West

    Blacks protesting don’t care that that Chris Hayes is a self-hating libtard and is “on their side.” To them he is a white oppressor filming them, it really doesn’t help that Hayes is also a dork who looks weak.

    • R L Buds

      The other night I saw him interviewing two clean cut black guys who went to some MLK Achievement Center or some crap; he asked if they ever had negative encounters with Ferguson cops. They hadn’t…..but once one was in a neighboring town and got pulled over for no reason (what we would call an inconvenience) which jaded him towards the cops.

      • Nancy

        “GASP!!!” He was pulled over for NO REASON whatsoever??? What do these crakka cops think they’re doing? Somebody call Sharpton and get this guy on camera!

        “We shall overcooooooomme!” (heheh)

  • ncpride

    Ha! Nasty little anti-White weasel got exactly what he deserved. Take your emasculated, diversity loving, worthless self back there tonight if you dare. Can you tell I despise this piece of work?

  • Larry Klein

    It’s beautiful thing to see the liberal weasel bombarded by the constituency he can’t stop groveling at.

    • DonReynolds

      Reminded me of the movie “Rawhead Rex”. The local priest in league with the Devil.

  • TruthBeTold

    This crisis has been a boon for black journalists.

    Every liberal news agency has sent their tokens to cover the scene.

    • Jim Kental

      The white liberal reporters are staying out of Ferguson with the same vehemence they use to keep blacks out of their own communities.

  • John Ambrose

    Awww… Pajama boy wanna‐be Chris Hayes gets pelted with rocks by some of his minority pets.

    BTW, Hayes’ father was a community organizer and his younger brother worked on Obammy’s re‐election campaign. And being such a hipster metrosexual, his children bear his wife’s maiden name and his own last name connected by a hyphen. How cute.

    • Dave West

      I hope he doesn’t have a son, the last thing the demising white race needs is a Chris Hayes clone!

    • ncpride

      I would think most men would find that insulting if a woman refuses to give up her last name. If I were a male, honestly, that would be a deal breaker for me.

    • John R

      He has a son? How could that be? I mean, for a man to father a child he has to, you know what, with a woman…..hmmm…..

  • Jim Kental

    Good. The leftwing media has been fomenting this anti-white hatred for a generation, it’s about time that some leftwing whites get some sense knocked into them via rocks, bottles, Molotov cocktails, etc.

    • Pro_Whitey

      Speaking of Molotov cocktails, I understand the cops confiscated one, and it was a COLT 45 40 ouncer. Just as I predicted it would be.

  • Adolf Verloc

    Oh, Lord, we call upon you to let those rocks fly straight and true.

  • Andy

    Personally, I think the police et al should give a day’s warning and then pull out of the area, so the nation can get an idea of the general effect of their presence.

  • journey

    Those savages are still going strong. What a waste of space.

    • Chasmania

      Let ’em burn it down I say. Lets let the un-enlightened get a ‘full frontal nudity’ shot of the feral urban black in his native habitat and at his most active.

      Someone should drop a few pallets of 40s , spiked with PCP, into that herd. Then sit back and watch the fireworks.

      • SoCal88

        Spiral viral

      • AndrewInterrupted

        Herd? I think they’re called “troupes”.

        • Extropico

          A troop of chimpanzees. A shrewdness of apes.

    • John R

      Ain’t like they have jobs or school to go to. So, of course they are still going strong. And we are paying them welfare. A “revolution” that is literally fed by the very society it seeks to overthrow.

      • journey

        Savages do not have jobs or go to school. Even animals would have moved on by now.

      • Dave West

        “A “revolution” that is literally fed by the very society it seeks to overthrow.”

        A revolution like this has been successful in recent times; see Zimbabwe for the disastrous results.

      • Irishgirl

        I actually saw a news reporter (don’t know his name) opine that people are “protesting” in the middle of the night because they probably have to work during the day. He was serious.

      • AndrewInterrupted

        That is also the reason why their birthrates are higher than Whites. And, of course, the Mainstream Marxist Media calls it low White fertility. Whites don’t have a fertility problem. Non-Whites have a fraud problem.

  • SoCal88

    Chris is stoned?? That explains a lot.

    • TXCriollo

      That it does

  • John R

    Chris Hayes getting rocks thrown at him by Negro rioters? LOVE IT! Almost too good to be true. It is good to see a libtard occasionally get a little bit of the street justice that they so richly deserve.

  • SoCal88

    This Ferguson thing is contributing to global warming and is causing a political climate change. Would someone please call Al Gore?

    • SoCal88

      Oh, I almost forgot. Al is busy suing Al Jazeera for $60 million. Never mind.

  • RHG

    To bad there wasn’t a beheading

  • Paleoconn

    MSM journos pelted by rioters’ rocks? I say, pass the popcorn.

    • Dave West

      Maybe Chris “leg tingle” Matthews will get the same treatment as Hayes, oh wait, he was to high and mighty to go to the protest in the first place!

      • Paleoconn

        I think Tingles once claimed to live in a heavily black area, but really he only drives by it on his way to work at a safe distance.

  • benvad

    I hope they (Bantus) knock him silly. Maybe a little Reginald Denny treatment for these MSNBC parasites is what white people need to see, so they finally get it!

  • MBlanc46

    Being angry. Perpetually angry. It’s one of the few non-sports-related activities that blacks excel at.l

    • benvad

      Ha ha!

    • DonReynolds

      Yes, MBlanc……and this is the point that bothers them the most……nobody really gives a hoot whether they get angry. Like…..who cares? They are always angry.

  • Billy Clinter

    This liberal white reporter responds to being physically attacked with rocks, by turning around and saying ‘people are angry’ and then he tries to reason with and ‘understand’ these people.

    Makes me want to vomit.

    What level of physical violence would it take to wake this liberal fool up?

    • DonReynolds

      Still want to reason with people who are determined to enslave or destroy the rest of us. Take no prisoners, then it does not matter whether they think straight or not.

    • John R

      I appreciate how you feel. But just consider this: In that one scene you and I can observe in microcosm the behavior of White Liberal America. It probably actually DID inform some people watching. And I don’t mean in the way that Chris Hayes, his employers, or those rioters envisioned.

  • DonReynolds

    My big thrill of the day is when the news bigmouths say that the “unarmed peaceful protesters” fought with police, who were under heavy gunfire, and tossed fire bombs at the police line……several people have been shot or otherwise injured, but none by the police….who have yet to return fire. Water cannons and tear gas was shot by police, to attempt to deal with the ongoing looting and arson in the community….by the “unarmed peaceful protesters”.

  • Poverty? I was able to watch a little bit of last Thursday’s episode of Survivor: Ferguson, which was a clown car parade slash block party on the evening after Governor Useless handed law enforcement control of the situation over to Captain Rastus and his merry band of overrated rural speeding ticket writers, so the blacks thought they won, and at one point, five black Escalades in a row paraded in the same direction. And there really didn’t look to be any old cars otherwise, not to mention that nobody in the cars or riding on top of the cars or in the beds of pickup trucks or lined up along the road looked like they were starving.

  • bubo

    This is probably the first time Chris Hayes has been around “hood blacks.” Those of us familiar with them already know that they are unpredictable and can go from calm to murderous within seconds.

    Just example 10000001 that they are incapable of living in an advanced society. They should be in Africa lazing around and picking low hanging fruit.

  • ElComadreja

    I love it when the vicious beasts turn on their enablers.

  • AndrewInterrupted

    He tried a modified Mike Wallace defense: “I’m not White, I’m Gay”. How’d that work for ya, Chrissy pooh?

    Paying attention, all you Libtards. Those stone throwers, those are your Demo-rat strange bedfellows you are so fond of defending. It will come time to start choosing whose side you’re on. Chris Hayes is banished to the wrong side.

  • none of your business
  • novictim

    MSNBC refuses to cover the story of the massive Pakistani Child Rape Squad/Sex Trafficking coming out of Rotherham England.

    Chris Hayes, this is a massive blot on your record, man.

    Rachel Maddow, how can you not cover the systematic rape of 1400+ white girls ages 11 to 14? Gang Rapes. Sex Trafficking. The comodification and objectification of young young girls on the basis of their religion (Christian) and gender? And the police, social workers, private child agencies and township politicians tried to hide the story and did so for nearly 20 years! HOW CAN YOU NOT COVER THIS?

    KPFA/KPFB? Amy Goodman? Hello? Where is your voice?
