One of the interesting developments from Wednesday’s circus that was another outburst from Black Lives Matter rioters at the Capitol was a retweet by the Des Moines Register’s reporter Shelby Fleig.

Matthew Bruce, the organizer of Des Moines Black Lives Matter who has already been arrested once for damaging a Des Moines Police Department vehicle, put out a tweet asking for as many people as possible to come to the Capitol.

Fleig retweeted Bruce’s tweet, saying she was on her way.

Later in the day, Fleig tweeted out a video and said protesters were “getting pushed around by police.”
