Gutless, cowardly mainstream media
The mainstream media – that same MSM that was so in the tank for Hillary – has proven again how blatantly one-sided their “coverage” of events has been.
The same MSM that skewed the polls by oversampling Democrats are also the same ones that consistently tried to tar middle class Americans by calling them “racists”, “bigots”, “xenophobes”, “misogynists” and so forth.
Even when they weren’t saying so or implying it themselves, they were constantly interviewing all the usual race-baiting suspects to call Donald Trump and his followers “Nazis”, “KKKers” and that Trump was “Hitler”.
They even let their “guests” say or imply that Trump supporters would be in favor of lynchings – without challenging these outrageous statements whatsoever.
Then there was Hillary Clinton herself, who referred to Trump supporters as a “basket of deplorables”. Let’s not forget that when violence broke out at some Trump rallies earlier this year, the MSM blamed Trump supporters when we all knew these were professional left-wing agitators.
This was proven to be absolutely the truth through the videos from Project Veritas. Due to the excellent, and courageous work of James O’Keefe’s organization, Democrat operatives with deep ties to Hillary Clinton and George Soros were exposed plotting to violently disrupt Trump rallies.
The MSM’s “journalists” never questioned this narrative that Trump and his supporters were “haters” and “violent”.
It is obvious to all with a functioning brain that the truth is quite the opposite.
Now that Trump has been elected, we are witnessing thousands of “loving”, “peaceful” left-wingers wreaking havoc in cities across the nation. There’s been looting, burning, destruction of property and violence.
And now comes word of a violent incident in Chicago where a black mob was videoed assaulting an older white man – hitting and kicking him repeatedly, and dragging him through the streets. Their motive was that he was a “Trump” voter – whether he was or wasn’t isn’t known but it was their excuse to engage in senseless violence.
The video – which was posted on YouTube, has evidently been removed but other sources have it. (Warning, it is shocking.)
Now, let me posit this…
Suppose this had been a group of white people beating an older black man senseless, because he was a “Hillary voter” – what do you think the media would do?
Rhetorical, but I will answer it.
The alphabet networks would have shown this to the exclusion of all other news 24/7 for a month to “prove” their narrative that Trump voters are “racist” and “violent”.
So far, all we have heard from these gutless wonders at the networks are crickets chirping.
Ladies and gentlemen of the MSM – and I’m being very generous with those appellations – your selected candidate was rejected for two primary reasons… first was the fact she was the most corrupt politician in modern times. The second motivating factor was that millions of hard working, decent middle Americans who simply don’t like socialist, globalist policies – have become sick of your incessant, lying labels about who they are.
Americans not only do not trust you, they are coming to despise you for your pointless smears and your ridiculous double standards.
I’ve seen some of your “analysis” post-election of what went wrong for Hillary, and the more honest of you have (grudgingly) even admitted that it was partly a referendum on the press.
Millions of Americans finally said “enough” – and they went to the polls in droves.
What you in the MSM need to realize is that we will no longer sit silently while you attempt to label us. Your pet names for us no longer work – and even the independents have seen through your lies.
Your lack of coverage of this appalling incident on video of pure hatred speaks volumes – and it proves that regardless of whatever lip service you have given to become more balanced, you haven’t learned a damn thing.
Rest assured, there are many in the alternative media like myself who will continue to point out your double standards and your hypocrisy.
Ronald Reagan was fond of saying (correctly), that government doesn’t solve problems – it is the problem.
Now it appears that the same can be applied to MSM “journalists”.
