The mainstream media has decided to start referring to violent leftist rioters as “peace activists”—after a crowd of them threw rocks and water bottles at police in Phoenix, Arizona.

International news agency, Reuters, tweeted on Tuesday: “Pro-Trump supporters face off with peace activists during protests outside a Trump rally in Phoenix.”

The Washington Post also referred to the rioters as “peace activists” in a headline.

Neither news agency explained how it had arrived at the term.

However, despite the media’s euphemisms, the rioters in Phoenix were anything but peaceful. They were protesting outside a campaign rally where President Trump was speaking—but things soon turned ugly.

"People in the crowd began fighting and throwing rocks and bottles at police," said Sgt. Jonathan Howard, of the Phoenix Police Department, in a statement. "They also dispersed some gas in the area. Police have responded with pepper balls and [pepper] spray in an attempt to disperse the crowd and stop the assaults."

Two people were arrested for aggravated assault, and one person was arrested for criminal damage. No officers were injured.
