Stevens Point, Wisconsin – “All Lives Matter” turns ‘Peaceful’ Protest Violent – Exclusive Interview with Ethan Carlson
In Stevens Point, Wisconsin there was a ‘peaceful protest’ taking place in support of Black Lives Matter and their standpoint about racism and police brutality. While attendees help up ‘Black Lives Matter‘ signs, ‘I Can’t Breathe‘ signs, and other similar statements, others were ‘speaking’ their opinions while others gathered around to listen. Makeshift mega-phones echoed out the voices and their sentiments. Locals along with out-of-towners were present. Here is where the story divides though. Accusations are flying about a handful of local young men that were present in multiple pick-up trucks. As one poster on Facebook explained their story : “Hi Stevens Point area folx – If you know this ignorant child please be sure to let him know that his actions will not go without consequence. Today at the PEACEFUL PROTEST in Stevens Point, this fool was throwing punches at the protesters from the bed of this truck and attempting to steal and vandalize a sign belonging to one of the protesters. One of them was also heard by multiple people to be yelling racial slurs as they drove away.
NOW IS THE TIME TO STEP UP AND HOLD YOUR RACIST “FRIENDS” ACCOUNTABLE. ALSO, STOP TEACHING YOUR KIDS SUCH IGNORANCE AND HATRED! RACISM IS NOT BORN, IT IS LEARNED.” … The comments following the post are not nice, as you can imagine, and at least 2 of the young men have already been doxed. Supposedly one was identified as Brendon Gollon, another as Ethan Carlson; both residents of Stevens Point.
We have an exclusive interview with one of the young men (Video Below); Ethan Carlson was kind enough to speak with us and tell us his version of what happened, which is quite different than the story above. Supposedly the sh*t hit the fan when one of the young men spoke out and said “All Lives Matter.”. … Take a listen to Ethan Carlson’s side of the story :

These kids have always been respectful from what I’ve seen of them. This is the exact same thing I’ve heard from the other kids that were there in the trucks. Also WSAW and WAOW both posted the trucks drove through in a peaceful manner without incident, except for the protesters felt scared. The videos on WSAW and WAOW does show the protesters running at the kids in the truck and yelling at them, you can not hear anything from the kids and most had their truck windows up.
You know the kids were yelling shit at them!? People dont just run after people for no reason. Use your brain. They drove past multiple times yelling shit. Maybe ask people who were actually there. The dude in the back of the truck had a bat!? What did he plan on using that on? Non of the protesters had a bat!?. They knew exactly what they were doin.
Why are you anonymous! Bet you were one of those protestors!
Who cares if they were there. I’m sure these kids were good kids but just not on that day. They didn’t make good decisions. Ask yourself why were they there with Trump flags flying. I believe everyone can express themselves but accept the consequences when your plans to be disrespectful to a group of people gathered do not accept boys being children and then crying about it and making up stories
Yeah, let’s listen to the news reports. NOT!!!! I was there, and the trucks drove around revving their engines, driving fast, calling out WHITE POWER and using racial name calling. My son went to school with them…….and in fact 1 wasnt even from point, so why does he care? I saw them punch my friend’s sign almost hitting her in the face. Everyone can have their own views and beliefs, but when cruelty is engaged its inhumane. That behavior is taught. Which doesn’t say much about their parents.
If someone was sitting in a bed of a pickup truck, the person holding the sign must have been very close to them and the truck itself for him to be able to reach a sign with his arm going in for a punch.
Why would a protester get so close to a truck like that? Just saying…there are two sides to every story.
The truck was driving in an area where the streets were filled with pedestrians. They knew well what they were doing.
That’s what happens when you try to start a race war? I thought it was about police Brutality? Yet here we are at the race card? Maybe next month you’ll start a religious war? Fine with me because I don’t believe in any of that brainwashing either😎
Kimberly you clearly WERENT there like I WAS. So take your bullshit comment out of here.
I’ll bet “kimberly” was in one of the trucks lol
These kids went by more than once. And once they saw tv crew recording them do you really think they’d get their bad behavior on TV? Next excuse is?
There was nothing but childish instigating by these boys in trucks. I was driving my 9 year old son through the square as a civics lesson. One kid in a truck actually tried to DRIVE AROUND ME in a one lane one way square. He drove into the parking spaces and into the outskirts of the crowd. Blasting the song Fortunate Son by CCR to drown out the young man with the microphone. I was not an official participant of the protest, in fact, after the idiot in the truck was stopped by a local DETECTIVE, I drove around and… Read more »
If these kids were respectful and considerate they wouldn’t have drove to the BLM protest and revved their trucks and provoked the group. If you weren’t there physically you shouldn’t be defending them.
There were about 40 eye witnesses saying what this disrespectful punk and his friends were doing. Shame on you for being racist and now lying about it.
Lol Jesus fucking christ grow up. PEOPLE aren’t going to run after someone for no reason. Of course the kids going to lie and say he did nothing, especially to a website like “unapologeticrepublican.com. They know what they did and now they want to skew the narrative and lie their asses off so they can play pretend heroes for all the poor Proud Boys.
Its sad to ser rascism used as a pawn for Leftwing agendas.
You sound like a sheep, Marla.
You sound like an idiot though
Its racism which is not leftwing or right-wing. IT’S WRONG. What are u trying to say?
If you view photos from numerous people’s accounts of this scenario you will see that the truck that was ‘surrounded’ that these kids were riding in, has absolutely no license plates on it and from other personal accounts, it did not have plates for numerous hours during this day. Starting with that evidence these people should not have been allowed to operate the vehicle in the first place. BUT Stevens Point PD seems not to care about this behavior? Interesting. Wonder what else they condone from these people? 2nd spectacle of wrong-doing would be yelling “all lives matter.” If you’re… Read more »
Don’t you sound intelligent?! SMH
Sounds like some racist Redneck idiot kids. I bet the parents are some ‘very fine people’ too.
*kids try to provoke protesters for hours*
*protesters shout them down, make them leave*
In all seriousness, I was there and saw what happened. I also saw pictures, videos, and live-streams that captured what happened before, during, and after the event in question. Everything was peaceful up until that point. No one got hurt, traffic flowed around the square, and y’all still had a way out of the square.
If y’all are so crazy about rights just let us protest in peace.
These are the same little assholes that drove around with confederate rags flying on their trucks and causing problems at Pride last year. Useless little lying fucks.
Eh. They’ll get a back alley beating one day. Attitudes like that always run across someone with a worse attitude ready to prove it.
What’s sad is these boys run around thinking they are men, they always have! But make them be accountable and admit what they were doing, they lie like boys and criminals. But let’s feed into it why not, praise them for being cowards, spread their lies like they we’re somehow victim. If they were not there to protest or watch and learn why were they there? Video shows they did not stay, they drove through and we’re obnoxious. My question is remove those boys from the situation does anything occur? No, nothing else did that day so be honest with… Read more »
Counter protesting is 100% the right of people to do. This was not a counter protest. These were online trolls in real life – sad, stunted people looking for a reason to feel important – everyday racists too mentally and moraly deficient as to even have an ideology. Sara Retzlaf who was in the yellow truck posted to her snapchat “time to piss people off.” Ask her – see if she is proud enough of her actions to admit it. Ask her too why that made her feel so good to do. You do have to admire the thought process that says “even though… Read more »
The fact that these boys removed the license plates from there vehicles is clear enough evidence that they had an agenda of causing trouble. I do not feel sorry for them that they have been outed. Also, the interviewer talked about CNN putting a spin on things… however, this interview is more trying to cover and defend bad behavior. Disappointing that the question was not asked…”Why were license plates removed?”. Central Wisconsin will stand together and make you and your racist ideals the minority. We will not look the other way! I hope that each of you learned exactly… Read more »
I could have sworn I saw the guy in this attached picture are the protest, but I am not sure whose ‘side’ he was on ….. Did any of you see him and recognize him?
looks like your mom
And the award for being the most childish goes to you.
Why’d you post a picture of yourself in this thread? Seems kinda irrelevant right now lmao
lol dude we get it. you’re into that kinda thing. all of us don’t need to know what you’re watching
Can anyone seriously provide links to videos proving this kid is a liar? … I keep reading that there’s a lot of videos, streaming videos, but I can’t find any where I can hear them yelling r*cist things or them being the original aggressor. I am open to both sides of the story until PROOF can be provided that will cast doubt on one of the sides … Just a real jury would ask for if this was in court. So, in fairness to all, I ask for links to videos please… Proof of either side’s story please. Also, you… Read more »
Both channel 7 and 9 had videos on their Facebook page.
You have to consider the fact that this protest was meant to be PEACEFUL. Those kids drove by not just once, but multiple times revving their cars, inciting fear. If they weren’t there to purposefully provoke, they should have done what any other considerate person would’ve done and left them alone. If they were there to check it out, they could have done that without revving their damn trucks.
That’s not what happened. What happened was some rude racist kids thought it was cool to drive past multiple times honking and interrupting speakers, yelling hurtful and rude things, and purposely antagonizing a peaceful and even tear filled protest of LOVE and UNITY. We just felt bad for you all honestly. Must suck to be such a jerk. Feel even worse now that I know God is mad at you for lying AND hating. You were not attacked by black people lord help me. You were surrounded by peaceful protestors holding signs and chanting. 🙄
You little bitches with your ‘peaceful protests’ are the problem. How stupid do you have to be to single out one individual race, protest in favor just for that one single race, and then call everyone else racists? Guess what smarty-pants, that’s called being a hypocrite because what you are doing is racist! The fact that you can’t see that you are all hypocrites makes you look even dumber. — “Black Lives Matter!’ .. “Yay!!!!!” .. “Uhh, don’t All Lives Matter?” .. “F-ck you, you racist redneck! Now we are going to kick your ass, expose you to everyone so… Read more »
someone: My house is on fire! Help me!
you: what about my house?!
That is seriously the worst analogy to use. Why not provide data instead.
what data would i find to counter “you little bitches?”
You racist hillbilly fuck. Why dont you have your actual name on here. Pussy. Dont want you friends and coworkers to know what kind of piece of shit you really are
You sound like the type of person that protested an entire pandemic while carrying an assault rifle… completely uneducated
Well now we know how the kids got the way they are. Not born a racist but raised a racist. Try and open your mind or a book. Because your posting screams ignorance
Not to jump to conclusions BUT with all your name-calling you must be a Trump klan member. My suggestion would be pick up a book and learn some big words. You haven’t made a point you’ve proven a stereotype
Sounds about white.
We don’t go to whatever parking lot these losers hang out in every night to yell at them, know what I mean? If they want their rights respected they should try respecting the rights of others. Sounds like we need to protest their gatherings with signs that say “We know what you did”
Lol this kid and his friends knew exactly what they were trying to do when they went down to the protest. They had every intent to stir things up and I can’t imagine why they’d want to stir things up other than they are just racist & I’m sure they were raised that way. Maybe they should have just let the peaceful protest, be peaceful rather than try to start trouble. I’m sure he was totally okay with all the protests to open the state back up, why do you think they chose this particular protest to start trouble? Can… Read more »
Tired of hearing whinny kids being victims. This interview was clearly done by a kid that was trying to pamper Ethan. He cannot clearly answer if slurs were screamed by his buddies. Put others ON BLAST by the interviewer. If they were showing up and not planning on any problems why would their LICENSE PLATES BE REMOVED. Bottom line more pity for the white boys…and I’m white. Next time stay home if you don’t want to be a positive participant. This story is why we need change.
The interview was a joke. Obviously they were friends or had discussions beforehand. The kid was being fed the answers that he wanted. The boys showed up with Trump flags and license plates removed from the trucks..nothing suspicious there. They lie and have made everything up. Once again they are the victims when they are simply racist. They didn’t show up to contribute something positive. Just more rants that echo the person hiding in the white house. So feel free to disagree but it would help if you were there and saw what transpired
Fuck him and all you racists who support him.
From personal experience almost 40 % of the white population in Wisconsin is at least a little racist if not extremely.. And definitely prejudiced against anyone from across state lines. If they are prejudiced based on your state imagine if you arent white. Kimberlys response is that of the same of a mother protecting her son and this situation is nothing new to me in WI.
Yall just as nasty as you calling them! yall supposed to be not violent and peaceful but look at what you saying! you just as nasty as you say those boys is. Look at you here, YOU NASTY! Be the bigger people. walk away. Now I hear the police are involved and investigating, so bein so nasty!
How is “Let’s me up” and “everyone knows now buddy” a threat lmao. Y’all crazy. They don’t have to “be the bigger people” and “walk away” man, if we do this racist shit will keep happening. We have to hold people accountable and this article is completely biased. Man shut up with your “you’re nasty too.” You’re just goofy man.
This site just posted the video of this, FINALLY! Go here … ’bout time someone posted a vid of it
Based on a quick read, this article was most likely written by one of these kids dads. The author is as intolerant and illiterate as his sons who were at the protest instigating shenanigans. Maybe get an editor or have someone who can actually read, proof-read this shit before you post it.
