Video: TV Journalists Defend,
Excuse Five Nights of Riots

Original Article

Posted By: Imright, 6/2/2020 11:04:33 AM

From the start, TV news media have done their darnedest to paint the riots happening across the country in a positive light. While many journalists have glossed over the widespread violence by relying on misleading characterizations like “mostly peaceful,” others have outright defended and justified the rioting. Some of the these attempts to sanitize the rioting have bordered on parody. For a sampling of the media’s most desperate damage control, watch the video below: (Video) Last Friday MSNBC’s Ali Velshi stood in front of a burning building and absurdly refused to describe the scene as “unruly.”

Governor Newsom is excusing it, LA Mayor Eric Garcetti is excusing it, just about every Democrat so-called “leader” is excusing it. Crawling around on the floor, begging for forgiveness. The black community now has a carotid restraint on our state and local governments and our police forces. I watched young and not so young black thugs break store windows, climb or walk in, and clean out the stores, leaving what they didn’t want on the sidewalks and in the streets. Racing with their stolen wares to vehicles that had just swooped to a stop, timed to the minute to pick them up. I apologize to no one. There is no excuse for this. None. And if they think race relations will be improved after this, they are mistaken.

On Tucker Carlson last night he showed disturbing videos of the brothers attacking people, including a woman smashed with a 2x4 outside her antique shop. Then Tucker stated that there were even more violent videos of these black on white attacks but that he withheld them due to their graphic nature. Why? Why hide the actions of a segment of our society that is trying to destroy our society? Show what the residents and police of our cities are facing almost daily, and why this sociopathic behavior has to be condemned rather than excused. After watching the hordes of teens and men looting and assaulting made me realize that we need to encourage Planned Parenthood no matter how immoral we find its abattoirs. The 700,000 abortions this sick organization is performing each year is keeping our cities far safer than face masks and social distancing.

The press, and more importantly, the Democrat pols are excusing these crimes because they’re trying to get back the black vote for the upcoming election. They know that Trump is making progress in securing more black votes.

The graphic video of the mob of black thugs who beat up what appeared to be a white or Asian man outside his shop in Dallas, with one last kick at the downed man’s bleeding head as he leaped over him while running to join the others (the man was left in a grotesque position, in critical condition, on the sidewalk) told me all I needed to know about these “protesters”...

I have to add one note. Finally saw brothahs and sistahs being arrested in rather large numbers early last evening in - I believe - Santa Monica or maybe Hollywood. (We are numb. This is now on every local station, all day and into the night, all day, every day.) Anyhoo, it was good to see rather large numbers of now-subdued bad people being perp-walked across a street, their hands banded behind their backs. On live TV. Because there had been mostly looting in that area earlier, I assume these were looters. As usual, the reporters didn’t know.

Fox 5 in NYC last night almost bent over backwards to be unctuous to the protesters (meaning looters) as they cleaned out Madison Ave shops like Tourneau, the AT&T store, and looted Macys Herald Square. Much in contrast to the Fox News coverage of the same. I do hope that these local broadcasters have their studios invaded by Antifa and they're dragged off air, beaten, and their stations taken over by thugs. They deserve it.

This coming from the same crowd that tried to vilify the tea party protests who were always completely peaceful and generally left the areas they gathered cleaner than when they arrived. My anger builds daily for a multitude of reasons. I really despise the leftist media with the heat of a thousand suns.

Calling individuals who present No news, FAKE news, or CENSORED news , journalists , is completely misleading. They are highly paid purveyors of lies, fairytales, and horror stories; Lastly, their bosses are scum.

On May 21, CNN’s “Reliable Sources” newsletter mocked the governor of Florida under the headline “Stuck in his safe space: DeSantis hides on Fox.” The governor holds press briefings to take questions from Florida reporters, but he hasn’t said yes to CNN or MSNBC or CBS, who have all requested an interview.To conservatives, this kind of shaming fails to address that the entire rest of the national media are a “safe space” for Democrats like Joe Biden.

WASHINGTON— Former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein told lawmakers Wednesday that he would not have approved an FBI surveillance application for a former Trump campaign aide during the Russia investigation had he known at the time about the problems that have since been revealed.Rosenstein’s comments amounted to a striking concession that law enforcement officials made mistakes as they scrutinized ties between Russia and Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign. But even as he acknowledged the legitimacy of anger from Trump and his allies, he defended his appointment of special counsel Robert Mueller to lead the probe and affirmed his support for the conclusion that Russia interfered but did not criminally conspire

Mr. Graham, who chairs the Senate Judiciary Committee, said Antifa has played “a part” in the civil unrest. But the South Carolina Republican noted that rioting and looting happened during protests long before the militant anti-fascist group became a movement. “We will try to find out how organized this violence is,” Mr. Graham said. “But I am old enough to remember 1968, and Antifa was not around in 1968, that I know of.”

Black Entertainment Television founder Robert Johnson elaborated on his call for the payment of $14 trillion in reparations to African-Americans Monday on "Special Report." Johnson told host Bret Baier that Americans must look at the passing of time in "total context." "Part of that context is people have a right to protest when they see injustice. That goes all the way back to Dr. Martin Luther King," he said. "But on the other hand, we have to go to the root cause of people's protesting that leads to violence, whether it is agitated violence or just violence because people feel frustrated and bitter."
