(TheLibertyRevolution.com)- The mother of Jacob Blake, the black man who was recently shot by police officers in Kenosha, Wisconsin, after he resisted arrest and allegedly reached for a gun, has apologized to President Donald Trump and begged left-wing rioters to stop the violence.
Julia Jackson spoke out after extreme left-wing rioters began destroying the city in response to the incident. 29-year-old Blake refused to cooperate with the police after they were called to address a report of a domestic incident. Blake is accused of criminal trespass, domestic abuse, and even third-degree sexual assault.
Despite this, far-left extremists have chosen to label the police incident a “racist attack” and have since burned down much of the city’s black business district for “justice.”
“My family and I are very hurt and quite frankly disgusted,” Jackson said during a TV interview on CNN. “And as his mother, please don’t burn up property and cause havoc and tear your own homes down in my son’s name. You shouldn’t do it. People shouldn’t do it anyway, but to use my child or any other mother or father’s child, our tragedy to react in that matter is just not acceptable. And it’s not helping Jacob. It’s not helping Jacob or any other of the men or women who has suffered in these areas.”
A little bit of sanity and a call for calm is nice to hear, isn’t it? But the rioters don’t care. Despite calling members of the National Guard to help de-escalate the violence, Kenosha faced yet another night of violent protest by Antifa and Black Lives Matter activists.
CNN anchor Don Lemon asked Jackson if she had anything she wanted to say to elected officials, and what she said probably wasn’t what he was hoping to hear.
“For our President Trump, first I want to say a family member – and I don’t know if it was heard or not – said something that was not kind. She is hurting and I do apologize for that,” she said with regards to anti-Trump attacks from other members of the family.
“Our outburst does not reflect our behavior. And also, for President Trump, I’m sorry I missed your call because had I not missed your call, maybe the comments that you made would have been different. And I’m not mad at you at all. I have the utmost respect for you as the leader of our country. Like I said before, and I’m not saying this to him directly, we should always get the details from the right source before we start throwing bricks.”

The question now is…will the violent protesters listen? Will the Democrats stop calling this a racist attack before getting all the facts?
Will Joe Biden tell his supporters to stop destroying American cities?
