In the summer of 2020, America was under siege by radical ANTIFA actors across the country. But if you were only reading mainstream headlines, you probably have no idea just how bad it really was. As homes and businesses were being burned to the ground and livelihoods were being destroyed, corporate media engaged in a full-scale attempt to gaslight the American people, pushing Orwellian narratives about the violent riots by mislabeling them as peaceful, democratic demonstrations, all seemingly to bolster their biased political views.
But one intrepid reporter was on the ground at all the major riots and witnessed what really happened — and is telling the full story for the first time.
In his explosive new book, Fiery But Mostly Peaceful, Julio Rosas presents the definitive account of what really happened that summer, exposing the truth behind countless misleading headlines and taking readers inside the shocking and heartbreaking destruction the media refused to cover. Rosas’ groundbreaking reporting of the biggest and most destructive riots that gripped the nation in recent memory — including Kenosha, Minneapolis, Portland, Seattle, and more — decisively uproots the prevailing bogus narratives about destructive woke mobs and sheds much-needed light on the truth about what happened.
Small businesses and citizens of targeted cities are still sifting through the rubble left behind by rioters while the media continues to turn a blind eye. Rosas’ shocking account highlights the ways in which this fallout continues to haunt and devastate communities even to this day.
Thrilling, suspenseful, and packed cover-to-cover with jaw-dropping facts and never-before-told eyewitness accounts, Fiery but Mostly Peaceful pulls back the curtain and sets the record straight on a series of radical events across the country that, despite the media’s attempts to convince Americans otherwise, were anything but peaceful.
“In 2020, intrepid journalist Julio Rosas hit the ground running to bring the American people the truth about what would become one of the most destructive and costly summers in U.S. history. While most in media were lying about the facts on the ground, Julio was gathering them in burning cities across the country. Fiery But Mostly Peaceful is a narrative-busting, critical-truth exposé and accurate historical record of the turmoil repeatedly excused by the Left.” ~ Katie Pavlich
“Julio Rosas was on the ground during the most violent protests in a generation. From Minneapolis to Seattle to Kenosha, Rosas blows up the left-wing media narrative and shows readers the carnage, heartbreak, and destruction that occurred. This is a must-read book that raises the alarm about the destruction of law and order in America.” ~ Christopher Rufo
“I have known Julio for a long time — he is smart and tough! Wherever something meaningful is happening, you can bet Julio will be there to capture it.” ~ Charlie Kirk
“As city after city burned in the summer of 2020, America’s corporate media lied right to our faces about the destruction being done by left-wing radicals under the cover of ‘racial justice.’ The media’s lies might have become the dominant narrative if not for the intrepid reporting of Julio Rosas, who was seemingly everywhere a small business was burning, pen and camera in hand, exposing the lies. Fiery But Mostly Peaceful is a definitive and much needed account of the summer of violence from the one reporter who saw it up close and had the guts to tell the truth.” ~ Mollie Hemingway
