And here we see the North Korean cheerleading squad doing a pitch-perfect impression of the American press during the Obama years.

The difference being that American journalists did it out of sheer adoration, and not because the regime was going to murder their families if they missed a cue.

Iowahawk:

Normal person: How does a human mind allow itself to abandon free will and become a cog in an omnipotent police state cult?
Media: OMG the North Korean cheer squad is so ADORBZ

Update: The unveiling of the god-king Obama’s presidential portrait provided another opportunity for religious adoration. The American press did not disappoint.

Barack Obama’s portrait shows him not as a self-assured, standard-issue bureaucrat, but as an alert and troubled thinker.

The artiste who painted the Obama portrait prefers to paint black women decapitating white women. (Still better than the Michelle Obama portrait.)

Update:  The Social Justice left emulates North Korea: No criticism of the new social justice movie will be tolerated.

Points to Ponder Re: Trump and the Media

Two commentaries on PDT’s expert manipulation of the MFM. From Instapundit on how the media’s hubris has led them to a place where their squawking is profitable but irrelevant:

The Educated Class’s emphasis on intra-class virtue signaling — which is what all this smugness and ridicule is about — undermines every institution it controls. And it lacks the self-awareness and self-control to do anything about that.

Of a piece with that, an article at FrontPage arguing that Trump’s real genius lies in his understanding of the root motivations of the media — greed and arrogance — and how he exploits both of them to is advantage. He really is the first president to understand we live in an era of clickbait.

The media spent eight years declining into irrelevance under Obama. Even before Trump, Obama had bypassed the media for social media. The big stories were fed to the press by Obama Inc. cronies like Ben Rhodes or hidden hand political smear shops like Fusion GPS. Even its core mission of cheerleading the left had become meaningless as younger lefties no longer bothered reading, watching or even clicking on mainstream media sites. The media was running out of customers, money and relevance.

Trump revived the media. The young lefties helping monetize the media again are coming for him. And every time he attacks the media, he makes it more relevant. The ritually insincere public wails about the unique threat to the free press posed by snarky tweets from the White House mask the private celebrations in every newsroom that Trump is making them into the center of attention once again.

“Fact” Checking

Mike Pence made a statement about the American work force that was technically correct (the best kind of correct), but the Washington Post “Fact-Checker” called it a lie because he’s Mike Pence and we hate him because if you look at it in a certain context it’s … oh, Hell, they called it a lie because they hate Mike Pence. Full stop.

Meanwhile, Liz Warren gets a pass on claiming to be a Native American to take advantage of Affirmative Action hiring policies. No, instead of really examining her claim (which does not stand up to scrutiny), they just call people racist for pointing it out. The Washington Post admits it refuses to fact check Liz Warren’s claim. “We urge readers to look into on their own and decide whether Trump’s attacks over Warren’s background have merit.”

And this is why it’s called ‘The Democrat Media Complex.’

Fake News

Posted by V the K at 9:48 pm - November 26, 2017.
Filed under: Media Bias

In what is becoming an annual holiday tradition, the Democrat Media Complex tried to gin up a “controversy” by claiming that “Christians” were “seeing red” over Starbucks cups that allegedly offended them somehow. However, the various DMC news outlets had a tough time finding any actual Christians who were offended, so they just kind of got in a circle and jerked copy from each other to validate the alleged story.

The entirety of the evidence for this New York Times article appears to be — and I’m completely serious — a single tweet by someone with 16 followers as of press time. And that tweet isn’t even mentioned in the Times‘ article! It is included in articles the Times links to.

The next evidence — the one that mentions a “gay agenda” — is from BuzzFeed, also praising Starbucks.

The next “evidence” is a Fox News article that aggregates the BuzzFeed piece. Then it’s a Blaze article that does the same. Here’s how the New York Times sets that up: “The conservative site The Blaze also waded in, saying Starbucks had launched a ‘gay agenda campaign.’” Except that’s not what The Blaze said. It merely quoted BuzzFeed’s claim about a gay agenda. The same way that this New York Times article did. All three sites — BuzzFeed, Fox News, and The Blaze — posted the tweet from the person with 16 followers as evidence of people unhappy with the cup.

Mic.com published a story on Monday purporting that the cup design caused a ‘boycott from Christian groups,’ but the actual article cites exactly zero Christian groups calling for such a thing. The Los Angeles Times claimed evangelical Christians were ‘seeing red,’ but only cited a couple of random Twitter critics. The New York Daily News claimed that ‘Christian evangelists’ were angered by the cups, but they cited only a lone student pastor from a small church in Sarasota.

So, why do the media repeat this lame stunt every year? Honestly, it’s to belittle Christians and portray them as idiotic yahoos who fly into rage whenever they see anything that might be offensive. Also, they are intolerant and hate gay people.

“It’s Complicated”

Posted by V the K at 8:53 am - November 22, 2017.
Filed under: Media Bias

The Democrat Media Operation known as ‘Politico’ wants its readers to know that the $17 Million Taxpayer Fund that congressmen have been using to payout sexual harassment and discrimination claims… actually isn’t a big deal. You see, “it’s complicated.”

But the reality of what critics lambaste as a sexual harassment “slush fund” is more complicated, like much about Congress’ policy for handling harassment complaints. The money covers all sorts of settlements, just not for sexual harassment, and some lawmakers cut their own side deals with accusers.

 
What this tells me is that the payoffs for sexual misconduct were primarily on the Democrat side. The Democrat Media Complex has a pattern of simplifying scandals that hurt Republicans into tight soundbites, but working overtime to make Democrat scandals mundane, complicated, and products of Republican conspiracies. “Donald Trump colluded with Russia!” versus “Republicans attacked Hillary Clinton for alleged use of a private email server while Secretary of State.”

The Media Lie, and Nobody Trusts Them

Yup.

We were told that the black man shot in Ferguson was holding his hands up to surrender.

We were told that many women had been assaulted by Trump but the fact that they all apparently disappeared after the election makes reasonable people wonder if there was a wolf.

The media can’t stop talking about Russian colluding with Trump even though after months and months of investigation absolutely nothing has been found.

The media also told us that the Duke Lacrosse team raped a woman and Trayvon Martin was an innocent schoolboy shot in cold blood by a trigger happy racist.

The lies the media tell conspicuously favor one point of view over another.

We know that the media ignored a credible claim that Bill Clinton raped a woman.

We know that the media ignores the fact that thousands of blacks are shot each year in Democrat-run cities.

We know that the media has refused to cover the clear evidence that Hillary colluded with Russia when she was secretary of state and that her campaign colluded with the Russians to fake dirt on Trump.

Can we at least be honest enough to admit that — regardless of what the truth of the matter is — the Roy Moore story is a carefully timed hit-piece by a Democrat-run media apparatus intended to take down a Republican candidate before a major election and that the media would never do this to a Democrat?

David Alcon, who is running for an open congressional seat in New Mexico, was arrested this past Friday on a felony stalking charge after a woman accused him of sending her frightening and lewd text messages and showing up at her home. Alcon was previously convicted of stalking his exgirlfriend in 2007 and was described as “infatuated” and “clearly obsessed” by the judge in the case.

According to a search of the television database TV Eyes, CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, and NBC have given zero onair coverage to Alcon’s arrest. The networks have also not published any stories about Alcon’s scandal on their websites in the past week.

You don’t have to be a defender of Roy Moore (and I’m not)  to admit that the MFM hype some scandals and ignore others based on partisan bias, you just have to be intellectually honest.

The Hoax that Is TrumpRussia

Posted by V the K at 9:06 am - October 17, 2017.
Filed under: Media Bias

It’s always the same pattern: Big Splashy CNN headlines followed weeks later by an inconspicuous debunking of the Big Splashy Headline.

That story followed on the heels of another CNN “exclusive” about how “Russian-linked Facebook ads targeted Michigan and Wisconsin.”

This story began: “A number of Russian-linked Facebook ads specifically targeted Michigan and Wisconsin, two states crucial to Donald Trump’s victory last November, according to four sources with direct knowledge of the situation.”

It went on: “Some of the Russian ads appeared highly sophisticated in their targeting of key demographic groups in areas of the states that turned out to be pivotal.”

Had CNN finally found evidence that Russia tried, and might have succeeded, in swinging the election for Trump?

Hardly.

It was up to the Washington Examiner’s Byron York to provide the relevant facts and context.

He found that of the 3,000 Russian ads that Facebook turned over to Congress, most of them ran after the election and so could hardly be part of any “meddling.” The vast majority didn’t mention the election or any candidate. A quarter of them weren’t seen by anybody.

What’s more, out of those 3,000 ads, only a tiny handful targeted Michigan and Wisconsin, nearly all of them ran in 2015 — well before Trump was nominated — and most had fewer than 1,000 impressions.

In other words, there was nothing to justify CNN’s treatment of the story.

On the other hand, there is some evidence that the Obama Administration and Hillary Clinton were taking bribes from Russia.

They also obtained an eyewitness account — backed by documents — indicating Russian nuclear officials had routed millions of dollars to the U.S. designed to benefit former President Bill Clinton’s charitable foundation during the time Secretary of State Hillary Clinton served on a government body that provided a favorable decision to Moscow, sources told The Hill.

The racketeering scheme was conducted “with the consent of higher level officials” in Russia…

Rather than bring immediate charges in 2010, however, the Department of Justice (DOJ) continued investigating the matter for nearly four more years, essentially leaving the American public and Congress in the dark about Russian nuclear corruption on U.S. soil during a period when the Obama administration made two major decisions benefitting Putin’s commercial nuclear ambitions.

 

Collusion

Tennessee Republican Marsha Blackburn announced her run for the Senate yesterday, but the announcement was blocked on Twitter because they objected to the part where she called out Planned Parenthood for trafficking in dismembered baby parts (which leftists contend is a myth even though multiple Planned Parenthood executives and employees were caught on video discussing how they traffic in dismembered baby parts).

You know who works at Twitter? A former spokesman for far-left Democrat Senator Kamala Harris, who previously used her position of power as California Attorney General to persecute the investigative team that exposed Planned Parenthood’s practice of illegal trafficking in dismembered baby parts.

Planned Parenthood gets over $500M in taxpayer subsidies every year, and last year spent $38 Million on political activities intended to help elect Democrats.

Interesting, yes?

At last, some in Controlled Media slam the Alt Left

Let’s hope this becomes a trend.

  • Associated Press, Black-Clad Anarchists Swarm Anti-Hate Rally in Berkeley.

    Berkeley, Calif. (AP) — An anti-hate rally was disrupted when scores of anarchists wearing black clothing and masks stormed the demonstration in Berkeley and attacked several supporters of President Donald Trump…

    “Anarchist” is the wrong word for Antifa, AP; try “communist” (by philosophy) or “fascist” (by their actual behavior). But, baby steps.

  • The Washington Post, Black-clad antifa members attack peaceful right-wing demonstrators in Berkeley.

    Their faces hidden behind black bandannas and hoodies, about 100 anarchists and antifa— “anti-fascist” — members barreled into a protest Sunday afternoon in Berkeley’s Martin Luther King Jr. Civic Center Park…

    Shortly after, violence began to flare. A pepper-spray-wielding Trump supporter was smacked to the ground with homemade shields. Another was attacked by five black-clad antifa members, each windmilling kicks and punches into a man desperately trying to protect himself. A conservative group leader retreated for safety behind a line of riot police as marchers chucked water bottles, shot off pepper spray and screamed, “Fascist go home!”

    All told, the Associated Press reported at least five individuals were attacked. An AP reporter witnessed the assaults…

Not to be suspicious, but all this has only been going on for the past 18 months, so… Why report it this time? Why now?

Trump statements on Charlottesville

Since the media and the Left (but I repeat myself) have misled people so much on this, I thought I would collect President Trump’s statements on Charlottesville for future reference. Emphasis added. (more…)

Update from Ace:

“CNN doesn’t like PDT’s speech in Phoenix so they trot out Don Lemon to call it ‘unhinged.’ Don Lemon, the man who got sloshed on the air during New Year’s Eve. And who thought that that the missing Malaysian airliner got sucked into a black hole. The man is 100% certifiable. Listening to him complain about Trump’s mental state is like hearing a lecture on chastity from Bill Clinton.”

I hope whatever George Soros paid this guy to protest was worth it.

In footage captured by Phoenix, AZ CBS affiliate KPHO, an apparent Antifa protester in the vicinity of the Phoenix Convention Center, the site of a rally hosted by President Donald Trump, was hit by a pepper ball.

After kicking one of the pepper balls out of the way, the protester took the pepper ball in the groin and afterward was seen being helped out of the street another individual

More from the AM Grab Bag: Bill Clinton’s Wife says that it was creepy being onstage with him at the second debate, what with all the accusations that he groped women and stuff. She never complained about hanging out with Anthony Weiner.

Leftists are buying up “F–k Trump” lipstick. Yeah, they wish.

Exit Question: Does the Democrat-Antifa Alliance help Trump?

Controlled Media watch

  • Congress readies a bizarre resolution against WikiLeaks.

    It is the sense of Congress that WikiLeaks and the senior leadership of WikiLeaks resemble a non-state hostile intelligence service often abetted by state actors and should be treated as such a service by the United States.

    “Resemble”? The resolution is saying that if you *look like* anything Congress doesn’t appreciate, they can strip your First Amendment protections and take the U.S. to war with you.

    WikiLeaks, remember, is non-profit journalist service. They publish leaks. The traditional, First Amendment approach is that *the leaker* commits a crime and can be punished, but *the journalist or publisher* does not. Someone wants an exception, it seems, for super-effective journalists whom the government can’t control.

    More from Julian Assange, here.

  • CNN endorses the undercover journalism of Project Veritas. Indirectly.

    A journalist snowed Breitbart employees by pretending to be someone they would trust. The journalist gave the story to CNN, who gladly reported it. Very embarrassing. But that is undercover “sting” journalism, like what James O’Keefe and Project Veritas do, and CNN and many lefties fulminate indignantly about them. Can you spell h-y-p-o-c-r-i-t-e-s? 🙂

  • Google and Apple ban Gab (a Twitter competitor), censoring what you can do with your own phone.

    “Whatever is permissible under the First Amendment is what Gab allows onto its site.”

    …Gab’s Android app was available through Google’s app store until yesterday, when Google banned it, citing violations of its hate-speech policy

    While Android users can install unapproved apps, it’s a cumbersome process…

    It’s difficult to credit Gab as a white-supremacist site when its cofounder is a Turkish Kurd and Muslim…who says “I’ve never supported Trump for a minute in my entire life”…

    Google is being plain evil. They’re saying *you can’t use a non-Google app to say anything to anybody that Google would not like*. What’s next, Google censoring your private emails? Remember, email is a phone app.

  • Breitbart has more on Google’s other steps to punish conservative speech.

Flashback: When Facebook ex-employees admitted that Facebook routinely censors conservative news from their “Trending” section. Even if it was really trending.

Awan-a sell your secretz (and other scandals)

I’ve been thinking of a “List of hideous Democrat scandals that each new media frenzy serves to mask”. Examples:

  • Awan family / Debbie Wasserman Schultz.
  • The Bill Clinton – Loretta Lynch “tarmac” meeting, a potential obstruction of justice which is still being investigated.
  • How Trumprussia Came To Be, Part I: the activities of Fusion GPS, Christopher Steele and the Hillary/DNC complex (and possibly John McCain) in spreading the fake “Trump dossier”.
  • How Trumprussia Came To Be, Part 2: the Obama administration spying and “unmasking” domestic political opponents. (Probably under sketchy FISA warrants.)
  • How Trumprussia Came To Be, Part 3: the intelligence agencies making fake claims of Russian hacking, when even The Nation (a left-wing magazine) now agrees that Russia probably had nothing to do with the DNC leaks in 2016.
  • How Trumprussia Came To Be, Part 4: The Hillary campaign’s collaboration with a foreign government – Ukraine. (A government with neo-Nazi connections, btw.)
  • The Hillary e-mail scandal is still with us; Judicial Watch keeps uncovering new Hillary emails showing new corruption.
  • The Benghazi scandal, ditto. (They’re still uncovering stuff.)
  • The IRS scandal, ditto. (They’re still uncovering stuff. And, strangely, IRS Comissioner John Koskinen still hasn’t been fired.)
  • General pay-for-play corruption at the Clinton Foundation, ditto. (Still no Special Counsel investigation.)

Just to pick one, let’s talk Awan scandal. Its outlines have become more clear and it has hit the New York Post, at least:

Federal authorities are investigating whether sensitive data was stolen from congressional offices by several Pakistani-American tech staffers and sold to Pakistani or Russian intelligence, knowledgeable sources say.

What started out 16 months ago as a scandal involving the alleged theft of computer equipment from Congress has turned into a national security investigation involving FBI surveillance of the suspects.

Investigators now suspect that sensitive US government data — possibly including classified information — could have been compromised and may have been sold to hostile foreign governments that could use it to blackmail members of Congress or even put their lives at risk.

“This is a massive, massive scandal,” a senior US official familiar with the widening probe told The Post…

For more than a decade, Awan, his wife, two relatives and a friend worked for 30 House Democrats…members of the sensitive Intelligence and Foreign Relations committees.

The Democrats who hired the five suspects apparently did a poor job vetting them. Awan’s brother Abid had a rap sheet with multiple offenses, including a conviction for DWI a month before he was hired, and filed for bankruptcy in 2012.

Most had relatively little IT experience. Yet they hauled in a combined $4 million-plus over the past decade. One, a former McDonald’s worker, was suddenly making as much as a chief of staff…

On Thursday, a federal grand jury indicted Imran Awan on four seemingly unrelated felony counts including bank fraud, conspiracy and making false statements. They also indicted his wife, Hina Alvi.

Emphasis emphasied. The Awans did it at least partly by stealing equipment and having Democrats say “Nothing to see here”:

A chief of staff for Democratic Rep. Yvette Clarke quietly agreed in early 2016 to sign away a $120,000 missing electronics problem on behalf of two former IT aides now suspected of stealing equipment from Congress…

…the chief of staff signed a form that quietly reconciled the missing equipment in the office budget, the official told TheDCNF. Abid Awan remained employed by the office for months after the loss of the equipment was flagged.

Separately, the brothers are suspected to have orchestrated a long-running fraud scheme in which the office would purchase equipment in a way that avoided tracking by central House-wide administrators. They’re suspected of working with an employee of CDW Government Inc. — one of the Hill’s largest technology providers — to alter invoices in order to avoid tracking. The result would be that no one outside the office would notice if the equipment disappeared, and investigators think the goal of the scheme was to remove and sell the equipment outside of Congress…

Those fraud schemes are two major parts of the criminal case being built against Imran Awan, his wife Hina Alvi, his two brothers Abid and Jamal, and potentially others into their Capitol Hill IT work. Their work as IT aides gave them full access to all emails and files of dozens of members of Congress…

And on it goes.

Although the story has hit Fox or an occasional editorial page, it should be much bigger. Huge. The timing of North Korea, a small white supremacist march in Charlottesville, Muslim terrorist attacks in Europe, Alt Left protests…it’s all been amazing, huh?

By the way – Remember Debbie Perm-and-Eyeliner glowering at the Capitol Hill Police chief, back in May? Yes, that laptop she wanted back was bought in her office, for Imran Awan’s use.

Russian-Nazi racist helped Black colleges

Scott Adams has been pushing a certain list of Trump accomplishments as President. Adams says:

1. Identify your most lefty, Trump-hating friend or family member.

2. Share this link of President Trump’s accomplishments while you are in the same room so you can watch them read it.

3. Watch as your lefty friend turns “cognitively blind” to the list of accomplishments as if it is not really there. Your subject will KNOW President has accomplished nothing…

…The list will simply be “invisible,” but not in the literal sense, only the mental sense. If you check back in two days, your anti-Trumper will claim once again no such list exists. Watch their eyes when they say it. It will be freaky.

To be fair, some items on the list are a bit exaggerated. But others, I had no idea about. Most of the media never told me. For example, this one about black colleges caught my eye:

February 28… President Donald Trump signed an executive order Tuesday aimed at signaling his commitment to historically black colleges and universities…

“This is a great day for my membership and a great day for America,” said Lezli Baskerville, head of the National Association For Equal Opportunity in Education, an umbrella group for public, private and land-grant HBCUs…

Trump’s order moves the Initiative on Historically Black Colleges and Universities from the Department of Education into the executive office of the White House. It directs the initiative to work with the private sector to strengthen the fiscal stability of HBCUS, make infrastructure improvements, provide job opportunities for students, work with secondary schools to create a college pipeline and increase access and opportunity for federal grants and contracts.

Separately and also interesting, there’s the freeing of Aya Hijazi:

April 21… President Donald Trump hailed the return of Aya Hijazi, an Egyptian-American aid worker, in the Oval Office on Friday, telling the American charity worker she showed “great strength” in her ordeal.

“We are very happy to have Aya back home,” Trump said, seated alongside Hijazi, who returned from Egypt late Thursday. “It’s a great honor to have her in the Oval Office with her brother.”

…Trump was briefed on Hijazi’s case early in his term and directed his national security team to take steps to secure her release…

Obviously, this post’s title is sarcastic.

Alt Left does violence & destruction; media silent

If you’re with the Alt Left Media, you’re outraged – outraged! – that anyone would compare the Alt Left to neo-Nazis. Because “One side is racist, bigoted, Nazi. The other opposes racism and bigotry. Morally different universes.” (Mitt Romney, lying for them)

In the real world, it’s different. Recent example: Alt Left injures reporter, then blames the reporter.

Antifa protesters assaulted a reporter filming in Richmond, Va., on Sunday night, and later defiantly blamed him for the attack on their Facebook page.

The unnamed reporter at WTVR CBS 6 was filming the marchers, who were protesting a monument to Confederate general J.E.B. Stuart, when he was hit with a blunt object, WTVR reports. The protesters believed they could stop him from filming by “denying consent” even though they were in public, and video shows them blocking his iPhone camera before striking him in the back of the head…

An ambulance took the reporter to a hospital where he received four staples in his head…

According to the Antifa Seven Hills, the marchers were the real victims of the reporter who was “perpetuating rape culture” by ignoring their “denial of consent.”…

Antifa also argued that his presence as a white man was suspect…

“Due to the intensity and context of this time people are very scared of white men running full speed at them with iPhones as this is the exact behavior of a white supremacist [ed: or a responsible law enforcement officer]…,” Antifa Seven Hills wrote…

Antifa argued that the media does not have a right to report on them in ways they do not consent to.

Hey, Antifa: If you’re doing a public protest, by that action alone, you consent to be filmed. Too late to “deny consent”.

The media told us that, if Trump were President, reporters would be in danger! There it is…from the Left.

A quick search did not show this story covered on CNN, NYT, WaPo or any big-time outlet.

RELATED:

  • Missouri State Senator, Maria Chappelle-Nadal, calls for Trump’s assassination. To their credit, leading Missouri Democrats have called for her resignation. But she refuses.
  • A bust of President Lincoln is burned in Chicago. Locals say that locals did it, back on July 4. To his shame, a Chicago Democrat alderman now blames Trump via a fanciful tale of outside white extremists doing it.
  • Alt Left website, Vice, calls for the destruction of Mt. Rushmore.
  • Numerous Confederate monuments are attacked or destroyed.

    Remember, these monuments were put up to heal the vast wounds of the Civil War, making a statement that both sides were American and had fought well, with history worth remembering. To pull them down is to take a stand against national healing – and against America. Pat Buchanan is scathing about it:

    Two years ago, Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe called the giant statues of Lee and “Stonewall” Jackson on Richmond’s Monument Avenue “parts of our heritage.” After Charlottesville, New York-born-and-bred McAuliffe, entertaining higher ambitions, went full scalawag, demanding the statues be pulled down as “flashpoints for hatred, division and violence.”

    Who hates the statues, Terry? Who’s going to cause the violence? Answer: The Democratic left whom Terry must now appease.

Barcelona car attacks

As you know, terrorists killed at least 14 people in Barcelona on Thursday with cars, and injured at least 100 more in multiple attacks.

A group called “Islamic State” claimed responsibility, making them explicitly political and Islamic attacks.

By any objective measure, this is a much worse tragedy and problem than what happened in Charlottesville last weekend, although our thoughts and prayers are with all victims of both.

The LA Times article above phrases it oddly. LAT’s title says the attack is “blamed on ‘jihadi terrorism'”. The internal scare-quotes are theirs. The body says:

Spain’s Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy said Barcelona was the victim of “jihadi terrorism”…

In other words, LA Times won’t call it jihadi terrorism; it will only report neutrally the fact that, oddly, for some strange reason that one might not be able to fathom, others choose to leap to that conclusion.

This fits in with the [Left] Media Complex Playbook that V mentioned a couple days ago.

  • If the car is driven by a mentally-ill white supremacist and kills 1 person, it’s proof that Republicans are Nazis, America is in the grip of an epidemic of racism, Trump is the KKKing of racists, and lefties are correct to physically bash their opponents.
  • But if the cars (multiple) are driven by consciously-religious Muslims and kill 14 people, it’s not proof of anything except that Muslims are victims of hate crimes by Republicans – and lefties are correct to physically bash their opponents.

Malice or Stupidity?

CNN is apparently trying to create the impression that Charlottesville was the first time in history that anyone ever rammed a motor vehicle into a crowd of people in order to commit mass murder.

Triggering the media

I keep hearing that the media is heavily filtering President Trump’s comments yesterday. So let’s get a bit closer to the real thing.

Trump says why his statements on Charlottesville were the right statements, in the right way at the right time. A triggered melee of voices strives to interrupt him.

YouTube Preview Image

[before the extract above] “I didn’t wait long. I wanted to make sure, unlike most politicians, that what I said was correct…It takes awhile to get the facts. You still don’t know [all] the facts.”

I think the driver of the car is a disgrace to himself, his family and his country. You can call it terrorism, you can call it murder… The driver of the car is a murderer, and what he did is a horrible, horrible, inexcusable thing.”

“Senator McCain? You mean, the one who voted against Obamacare [replacement]? The one who voted against us getting good health care?”

“What about the Alt Left, that came charging at the Alt Right? …They came charging with clubs in their hands, swinging. Do they have any problem? I think they do… That was a horrible day…You had a group on one side that was bad, and you had a group on the other side that was also very violent. And nobody wants to say that, but I’ll say it right now. You had a group on the other side that came charging in, without a permit, and they were very violent.”

“This week, it’s [protesting a traditional statue of] Robert E. Lee. I notice that Stonewall Jackson’s coming down. I wonder, is it George Washington next week? And is it Thomas Jefferson the week after? You really do have to ask yourself, where does it stop?”

“You had a group on one side and you had a group on the other and they came at each other with clubs and it was vicious and it was a horrible thing to watch…I think there’s blame on both sides, and I have no doubt about it, and you don’t have any doubt about it either, and if you reported it accurately, you would say it.”

“George Washington was a slave owner. So, will George Washington now lose his status? Are we going to take down statues of him? How about Thomas Jefferson? …You’re changing history, you’re changing culture, and you had people – I’m not talking about the neo-Nazis and the white nationalists, because they should be condemned totally – but you had many people [who just wanted to keep the traditional statue], and the press has treated them absolutely unfairly. Now, in the other group also [who wanted the statue to come down], you had some fine people, but you also had troublemakers…with the baseball bats.”

“There are two sides to a story. I thought that what took place was a horrible moment for our country.”

UPDATE: Added some highlighting, to help the cognitively-blind.


The one thing that I would regret in the above, is that President Trump should (and didn’t yet) call for a universal, national pledge against political violence, that Left and Right alike would be required to take – if they want to be regarded as moral or responsible.

The media (like CNN) and the Democrats must be made to disavow the violence and bigotry of Antifa and #BlackLivesMatter.

Having the Right disavow the violence and bigotry of the #WhiteLivesMatter types is easy, a small price to pay, something that I’m happy to do. Because anyone who believes in tradition or God or liberty for real will know instinctively that #AllLivesMatter. (Plus the fact that the #WhiteLivesMatter types are crypto-leftists anyway.)

More Google updates

Just to round out today’s earlier post, we also have new interviews in Breitbart’s Rebels of Google series.

UPDATE – Everyone we don’t like is Raaaaaaaaaysist: CNN falsely smears the planned March on Google as a “White Nationalist”, “Alt Right” event.

To begin with, the organizers of March on Google are known to be pro-peace, anti-racist and anti-Alt Right. But they also say it pointedly, at this link.

Code of Conduct for March on Google

The March on Google condemns and disavows violence, hatred, and bigotry and all groups that espouse it such as White Nationalists, KKK, Antifa, and NeoNazis.
We will not use messages that are designed to incite anger, hate, or violence.
We will respect the law and the police and cooperate in all matters.
Any violation of these tenets will not be tolerated.
Is this an “Alt-Right” event? The answer is no. This is an event for First Amendment supporters from across the country, from all backgrounds, ethnicity, and walks of life.
