“The omission is the most powerful form of lie, and it is the duty of the historian to
ensure that those lies do not creep into the history books.” —George Orwell,
author of ‘1984’
Is mainstream media complicit in mass murders? Spoiler alert. The answer is YES.
MSM (Mainstream media) has perverted journalism in order to promote the Democrats and demonize Donald Trump. The two mass murders are a prime example of the destruction that is caused by a biased media that acts as the propaganda arm for one political party. MSM has attacked Trump since the day he announced that he was running for President and at the same time has been soft on Democrats. Where was their disgust with Hilary Clinton when she referred to Republican Americans as Deplorable?
They were AWOL because they considered it their job to ensure that Hillary Clinton, heir apparent to Obama, would be elected. And when she wasn’t they shared their bias openly. Crying on election night. Journalists do not cry over elections. But the MSM made it clear that they were not happy and would do anything to besmirch this President. Including promoting a two year full frontal attack on his loyalty to America.
MSM rarely, if ever, mentions his accomplishments. Omission of facts. They don’t fit the left wing narrative. So half the country is left believing only the worst.
Let us not forget that Obama said manufacturing jobs were gone from America, never to return. Haven’t heard an interview with him about that monumental error. I will list a few of Trump’s accomplishments now. I wait for a journalist to interview blacks, Latinos and Hispanics about their feelings regarding illegal immigration and their wages, but I digress.
- Almost 4 million jobs created since election.
- More Americans are now employed than ever recorded before in our history.
- The Administration has created more than 400,000 manufacturing jobs since the election.
- Manufacturing jobs growing at the fastest rate in more than THREE DECADES.
- Economic growth last quarter hit 4.2 percent.
- New unemployment claims recently hit a 49-year low.
- Median household income has hit highest level ever recorded.
- African-American unemployment has recently achieved the lowest rate ever recorded.
- Hispanic-American unemployment is at the lowest rate ever recorded.
- Asian-American unemployment recently achieved the lowest rate ever recorded.
- Women’s unemployment recently reached the lowest rate in 65 years.
- Youth unemployment has recently hit the lowest rate in nearly half a century.
- Lowest unemployment rate ever recorded for Americans without a high school diploma.
- Under Trump’s Administration, veterans’ unemployment recently reached its lowest rate in nearly 20 years.
- Almost 3.9 million Americans have been lifted off food stamps since the election.
When you read the rest of the accomplishments you have to ask yourself; if this is the work of a racist, white supremacist kind of guy, what would a non-racist, non-white supremacist have accomplished?
Before Trump won the election, MSM was promoting lies, particularly that he was an anti-Semite. The lies and deceits shared by MSM led white supremacists to believe that he was their man. People like David Duke and James Mason, the man whose writings provide an ideology of virulent anti-Semitism for the group, the Atomwaffen Division were thrilled!
I wish all antisemites were like Trump, protecting and defending Jews and Israel and calling out antisemites in the Democrat Party, particularly Omar and Tlaib. Where is the media? Where is their outrage? Where are their calls to Democrats to call out the antisemites in their party? Where is President Obama? Why has the media not contacted him for a reaction? Or did I miss it?
David Duke realized after the election that Trump was not his buddy in racism and antisemitism and embraced Ilhan Omar. The former Ku Klux Klan Grand Wizard spoke out strongly in favour of the Muslim Congresswoman who has accused Jewish lawmakers of dual loyalty, attributed support for Israel to foreign money, and said Israel has “hypnotized” the world.
“By defiance to Z.O.G. Ilhan Omar is NOW the most important Member of the US Congress!” Mr. Duke wrote on his site, using the acronym for “Zionist Occupation Government,” a term anti-Semites use to refer to the U.S. government as secretly controlled by Jews.”
He shared this photo with the tweet.
Where is the hue and cry over Nazi tropes in the Democrat Party? That David Duke is supporting that party!
Now ask yourself, what does a white supremacist, KKK Nazi have in common with a Muslim person of colour? Hmmm? Jew-hatred. Yet MSM has said almost nothing. Did you see anything on CBS, NBC, ABC, or CNN, MNSBC in the Washington Post or the NYT? Where are Lester Holt and Jake Tapper? How about Norah O’Donnell and Gaye King? David Muir and Anderson Cooper? What about Mika and Joe in the morning? Where are the media mavens of the View?
Rather than standing with the President in his calls against hate, he was called a racist. I didn’t know that it is racist to call out people of colour for antisemitism.
MSM has been inciting hate against the President for years.
The lies about the President, that he was a racist, white supremacist and antisemite really began in Charlottesville with MSM twisting the words of the President following the terror attack. MSM, acting as the propaganda arm for the left, omitted half the comments. He did not say that the white supremacists and neo-Nazis were nice people. But so what. It fit their agenda.
“I’m not talking about the neo-Nazis and the white nationalists, because they should be condemned totally.”
He used the phrase “very fine people” to refer to non-violent protesters, both left and right, on either side of the question of the removal of a Confederate statue.
The President also specifically condemned the murder of Heather Heyer, calling it “terrorism” and “murder.”
Somehow this did not get as much airplay. Instead MSM used a portion of the quote-very fine people-to refer to the right. This is FakeNews that promotes hate. And MSM did that.
Even CNN’s Jake Tapper has admitted that Trump did not say that all were “very fine people” but the network continues to quote Trump as if he did. Why is that?
Recently, Trump was again accused of racism for calling out the infestation of rats in Baltimore. Seems this, too, was racist. It was an attack on Congressman Cummings. And then came the anger over the word infestation. How dare he say infestation? Because the neighbourhood is infested with rodents? CNN’s Victor Blackwell delivered an emotional monologue, holding back tears, in response to Trump’s tweets condemning Congressman Elijah Cummings’ Baltimore district as a “disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess.” Blackwell said “But when he tweets about ‘infestation,’ it’s about brown and black people.”
“‘Infested.’ That’s usually reserved for references to rodents and insects, but we’ve seen the president invoke infestation to criticize lawmakers before,” Blackwell began. He was referring to six legislators the president had recently attacked ― all nonwhite.
Apparently journalists find it appalling that the President attacks congress people, who are not white, for their failures. Why? Have they met with the residents of rat infested Baltimore and asked them how they feel? Ask them if they are hurt that President Trump called attention to their community?
With all the negative talk about the President, his hate for non-white people, which I find confusing considering the number of non-white people who work for him and with him, including the clergy, why wouldn’t Patrick Crusius, the El Paso murderer, believe them and act out? Yet, it seems that his “views predate Trump’s rise and that any attempt to blame the president for his actions was “fake news.”
Does MSM care that he was not affected by Trump? A resounding…No!
Just listen to national security analyst Malcolm Nance who suggested on MSNBC’s Hardball with host Chris Matthews that white supremacist “foot soldiers” are being brainwashed, somehow, by the words of President Trump as “subliminal orders in their head.”
He later apologized.
“I misspoke about Trump calling for an extermination of Latinos. My mistake was unintentional and I’m sorry. Trump’s constant assault on people of color and his use of the word “invasion” to describe the flow of immigrants is intentional and constant.”
Nice. But how many people heard the apology? More importantly, why did this man think it was acceptable to suggest that Trump had called for the extermination of Latinos?
The idea that anyone would say such things boggles the mind; that “journalists” would not confront these people and demand an explanation is the problem. Journalists are supposed to hold all people to account.
Did the media coverage of El Paso and the hate they say came from Trump, lead to the Ohio murder 13 hours later in Dayton?
The Associated Press reported that a Twitter account that appeared to belong to the murderer “showed tweets labeling himself a ‘leftist,’ bemoaning the election of President Donald Trump, supporting Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren and encouraging people to cut fences of immigrant detention centers.”
Understandable, as someone just like him, self-identified as an anti-fascist, or “antifa,” attacked a detention centre. He said he was motivated by the recent immigration raids and deportations launched by the federal government. A self-declared anarchist, he could no longer stand by as the government rounded up immigrants and placed them in “concentration camps.” “Concentration camps.” This man believed that the detention centres were as evil as the concentration camps set up by the Nazis; for the purpose of killing Jews,either by overworking and underfeeding them, or by sending them up in smoke thorough an incinerator. What did the MSM do to deconstruct the accusations of concentration camps by the Democrats, particularly AOC?
CNN reported “The Twitter account that appears to belong to Dayton mass shooter Connor Betts retweeted extreme left-wing and anti-police posts, as well as tweets supporting Antifa, or anti-fascist, protesters.”
In June 2019 Betts tweeted: “I want socialism, and i’ll not wait for the idiots to finally come round to understanding.” In November 2018, he tweeted: “Vote blue for gods sake.” He posted “F—- John McCain.”
Did he believe that Trump supporters were evil? That they had to be taken out? Maxine Waters has been calling for Democrats to go after Trump supporters.
“If you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere.”
I don’t recall MSM going after her and her incitement. Perhaps that was the reason that the coverage of Dayton was more subdued than El Paso. After all, he was going after Trump supporters.
Seems Betts supported Antifa. Why not? After all MSM lionized Antifa.
While MSM promotes lies about the President they say little about Antifa- a terrorist organization from the left. Chris Cuomo was outraged that people called Antifa violent. It is not that they are violent-there are some who are “the exception with the rule.” Really?
Would those “some include the people who attacked Quillette journalist Andy Ngo, who is also gay and was hospitalized, suffering from a brain hemorrhage, after being attacked by mask-clad Antifa activists, while covering a rally in Portland, Oregon?
“prominent media figures and politicians glamorize and even promote antifa as a movement for a just cause. CNN’s Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon have defended antifa on-air. Chuck Todd invited antifa ideologue Mark Bray on “Meet the Press” to explain why antifa’s political violence is “ethical.”
“Keith Ellison gleefully posted — and recently deleted — a selfie of himself holding Bray’s antifa handbook. Rep. Maxine Waters met hard-left political operative Joseph Alcoff in 2016. Alcoff is currently facing felony charges for his alleged involvement in an antifa mob beating of two Marines in Philadelphia.”
Are they also the exception? Where was MSM defending the right of a journalist to report on events in America without fear of being attacked? Where was the outrage from MSM journalists like their outrage over Jamal Khashoggi- a Saudi journalist, associated with the Muslim Brotherhood who was killed by the Saudis? Why did his murder garner far more attention that the attack on an American journalist in America? Is it because he was reporting on Antifa-the militia unit for the left?
Kamau Bell spent the May 5 edition of his show “hanging out” (his words) with a number of Antifa groups, including the JBGC, whom he dubbed the “good guy[s].” Quillette journalist Andy Ngo (who himself was recently hospitalized by a mob of Antifa members) discovered on Sunday that the man who attempted to burn down a Tacoma detention center was even visible on-screen in CNN’s trailer for the episode. Throughout the show, Bell was shown laughing (open the link to see the video)and joking with members of various Antifa groups. A woman showed off a pair of pastel brass knuckles and a tactical knife which she boasted about carrying with her when she engaged in “activism.” I watched as Bell caressed the knife and brass knuckles.
A week after the episode aired, Bell had not yet tired of praising the JBGC and “the good work they are doing,” even going so far as to encourage his viewers to “do what you can to support them.” This is MSM journalistic ethics, today. Promoting hate when it serves their agenda.
Kamau Bell is not the only CNN host to have adopted a soft stance on Antifa. In 2018, longtime CNN host Chris Cuomo tweeted an image likening members of the group to the American soldiers who fought on the beaches of Normandy during World War II.
It does not matter what the President says, or does, it is never good enough for MSM.
Following the attacks the President said:
“Hate has no place in our country, and we are going to take care of it. This has been going on for years, for years and years in our country and we have to get it stopped.”
But critics argued that the roots of the two massacres lay in the president’s language about immigrants and Mexicans in particular, and his opposition to gun control. Not the ratcheting up of hate by MSM.
And MSM goes out of its way to promote hate for the President and his policies. Here are comments made by Democrats-who did not call out Omar, AOC or Tlaib for their Jew hatred.
O’Rourke agreed that Trump is a “white nationalist.” He said:
“We’ve got to acknowledge the hatred, the open racism that we’re seeing. … We also see it from our commander in chief, and he is encouraging this. He doesn’t just tolerate it, he encourages it.”
“He is a racist,” said Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., “and we’ve seen the consequences of it.”
Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., said on Twitter about the president, “Your language creates a climate which emboldens extremists.”
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., declared that Trump was “directly responsible” for the shooting.
Frank Figliuzzi, who is also an NBC News national security contributor, told MSNBC that the president might be dog-whistling white supremacists by choosing to fly the national flag at half-staff until August 8.
As the former FBI official explained in the broadcast, “the number 88 holds symbolic importance for white supremacists because the letter H is the eighth letter in the alphabet. Thus, 88 is a stand-in for HH, which in turn is an abbreviation of Heil Hitler.” You can read the rest on the link.
And you wonder why unstable people kill?
I will leave you with a study on racism. I know this has been a rather long article and I appreciate the fact that you have come this far.
University of Pennsylvania political science professor Daniel Hopkins and research assistant Samantha Washington, the authors of a working paper on racism, who believed “Trump is “normalizing” the expressing of racist attitudes and that white racism against blacks and Hispanics is increasing,” discovered they were wrong.
“On average, anti-black prejudice dropped sharply among whites, from … just before the 2016 election to … two years later. … That marked the lowest level of anti-black prejudice since we first conducted this study in late 2008. Prejudice against Hispanics also dropped. … In both instances, declines were larger among Democrats, but they appeared among Republicans, too.”
Failure to report the facts, all the facts, has contributed to these attacks. It is time to hold journalists to account.
