(NewsGlobal.com)- Did you know that on February 4, a car plowed through a group of Freedom Convoy protesters in Winnipeg, Canada?
That’s because the mainstream media doesn’t want you to know what happened.
As working-class Canadians come out to protest Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s controversial and authoritarian COVID-19 restrictions and vaccine mandates, a driver of a white Jeep Patriot sped up past a long line of cars and drove straight into a group of protesters. In video footage that was shared online, one protester can be seen being struck by the driver, just as the driver steers the vehicle into other protesters.
See for yourself:

Luckily, nobody died. Those hit by the car escaped with injuries, and the driver was arrested by Winnipeg police. The 42-year-old man now faces 11 counts of assault with a vehicle as well as a count of failing to stop at the scene of a crime.
It’s exactly the kind of story the media would pounce on if it were to happen to Black Lives Matter protesters – who literally protest made-up anti-Black “systemic” racism – but for some reason wasn’t covered by the mainstream press.

Only Fox News and a handful of local media outlets in Canada covered the story. But nothing from CNN, nothing from Joy Reid, nothing from The New York Times. And it’s curious, too, because in the wake of the January 6 riot in D.C., anchors, and newspapers claimed to oppose extremism and violence.
So, where are they on this extreme violence?
