MSM Decries the Use of the Word ‘Mob’ to Describe Left-Wing Protesters

The optics of angry Democrat mobs banging on the doors of the Supreme Court, chasing Republicans out of restaurants, and bullying drivers on busy streets are not helpful ones for Democrats seeking votes from mainstream Americans ahead of the midterm elections, so the Democrat media complex is doing what it always does when the facts don’t line up with their agenda — they’re telling you not to believe your lying eyes.

CNN spent much of the day Tuesday recasting what looks to most eyes like political mob intimidation tactics against Republicans as patriotic Americans practicing their First Amendment rights.


The New York Times discovers a use for hillbillies

The hills have gone high tech. Sniff. Fetch the air freshener:

Traveling through eastern Kentucky, American sociologist Arlie Hothschild, “who studies work, family and the American right,” chronicles the changes in work patterns [toward careers in programming]:

“Worse, some saw rural Kentuckians as dubious recruits — tooth-free, grinning, moonshine-drinking hillbillies. “It’s a terrible myth,” an Interapt administrator who is the daughter of an unemployed Pikeville coal miner told me. “A hillbilly can do anything.””

At present, says Hochschild, Ankur Gopal and Interapt are sourcing as many new hillbillies as they can find: “For now, there is so much demand for I.T. workers — 10,000 estimated openings by 2020 in the Louisville metro area alone — that Mr. Gopal is reaching out to new groups. “We’re talking with the Department of Defense about a 16-week, eight-hour-a-day coding training program for vets returning from Afghanistan and Iraq to Fort Knox,” he said.” More.

Maybe iGen really IS fragile Note: The point of the article at Mind Matters Today is not that the prof beaters and car rollers are somehow okay or justified but that they may really be as fragile as they claim. Of course, that may mean they are no use to themselves or anyone else. But consider what they have been raised with – and by whom – before you judge whether it’s true or not. – Denyse


Media double standard gives hijab-clad “coffee-tosser” at Marrisa Shen protest a pass

…While Thompson was speaking to media, a woman clad in a hijab threw coffee on her as she walked past!

A photo from Twitter confirms that media were right there, and yet there was no coverage of this incident. Why?


Why Are We in Media Hell?

One of my theories about the classic gangster television series The Sopranos is that creator David Chase recognized an important truth about the structure of TV storytelling. In normal stories, a protagonist is placed in a situation that uniquely challenges his character so that in traveling through the arc of the story he is transformed in comic or tragic ways. But in a TV series, the hero’s character is never really transformed — because otherwise the series would end — and he is doomed to repeat the same actions over and over without surcease. In short, he is in Hell, like the sinners in Dante’s Inferno who must repeat the same actions forever. Or like Tony Soprano.

“Enemies lists,” then and now

The Trump-hating mainstream media claims that President Trump has an enemies list. It’s possible that he has one, but the list of people whose security clearance is under review isn’t it. An enemies list would be longer and would include, for example, Jim Acosta. The list in question is simply a group of people who may not deserve the privilege of having a security clearance now that they are not in government.

Calling the list an “enemies lists” has its uses, though. It enable aging liberals to gloat about being on Nixon’s enemies list — the real thing. And it enables the Trump-hating mainstream media to push the Trump-as-Nixon theme.


MALCOLM: Antifa, encouraged by the media, grows by spreading fear and paranoia

There is a pattern of violence coming from Leftist activists, particularly those affiliated with the group that calls itself Antifa.

Antifa stands for “anti-fascists” — ironic, considering these thugs wear black masks, they don’t respect freedom of speech or private property, and they actively call for violence against their opposition.


The Savage Hypocrisy of the #FreePress Protest

…Let me start with something basic. Of course, I support freedom of the press, as well as all forms of peaceful expression and not just in words. My readers know that I have literally gone to jail for this and am fighting in several courts to protect that right, both as lawyer and citizen. They know I have defended the right to speak of people who cheered when my freedom of expression was suppressed. That’s not my problem with this #FreePress protest. My problem is the incredible hypocrisy involved and general stupidity about what freedom of the press and freedom of expression means.


End the Double Standards in Reporting Political Violence

Let’s take a short walk down memory lane. Not long ago, on January 2, 2016, a small group of armed protesters seized an unoccupied federal building in the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge. The refuge is located in a relatively isolated area in eastern Oregon, and the occupied building itself was far from any populated area. The protests were related to a long-running land dispute between the federal government and Steve and Dwight Hammond — a dispute that culminated in a vindictive prosecution against the Hammonds, under the federal Anti-terrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act, for two “burns” that caused a trifling amount of damage (less than $1,000) to public lands.

The occupation created a media firestorm.


A Canadian journalist was physically attacked for doing his job. That should be huge news: Robyn Urback

A member of the news media was assaulted by a protester in Toronto this past weekend.

The altercation happened on camera, in front of police, with dozens of people standing by. The incident in which a journalist was struck by an activist — ironically, at an anti-hate rally — seemed entirely unprovoked: a pathetic attack on someone who was just there to do his job.

Now I ask you, could this lack of coverage have anything to do with the fact our liberal-left media sympathizes with Antifa and their fellow travelers? They have shown time and again that they are willing to give these thugs a pass while focusing on their Neo-Nazi White Supremacist straw-man. Telling the truth disrupts the narrative after all.


Why Is the Mainstream Media Ignoring the New Mexico Compound/Islam Story?

News broke this week that a deranged man, Siraj Wahhaj, was arrested for training a group of starving children at a filthy New Mexico compound how to carry out school shootings. Still, despite the newsworthy aspects of the story, including a Muslim ringleader, children, and the potential for deadly school shootings, mainstream news outlets have covered it only briefly, if at all.


This seems redundant… Boston Globe Calls For All Media Outlets To Publish Anti-Trump Editorials Next Week

The Boston Globe has called for the coordinated publication of editorials by any and all news outlets criticizing President Trump’s rhetoric on the press, scheduled for next week.

They have asked a number news organizations to publish editorials condemning the president’s labeling of the press as “the enemy of the people.”


Candace Owens: ‘Leftist Media Is Inciting Violence and Hate’

Candace Owens credited “leftist media” with “inciting violence and hate,” offering her comments during a Tuesday interview with Breitbart News’s Curt Schilling.

Owens said Antifa agitators were “inspired” to target her and Charlie Kirk with harassment by a HuffPost article deriding the duo as “racist.”


Who’s Behind The Right-Wing “Québec Fier” Facebook Page?

QUEBEC CITY – Over the past few weeks, you may have seen an increase in the number of stories in your Facebook feed calling for the privatization of the Société des alcools du Québec (SAQ), suggesting an end to the registration of firearms in Quebec, or making fun of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

The activist group “Québec Fier” (“Quebec Proud”) was inspired by the “Ontario Proud” movement that helped elect conservative premier Doug Ford. However, the people behind the Quebec page insist they are a non-partisan group.

Looks like Lib media is getting nervous…
