The left-wing media has FINALLY started expressing outrage at political violence… but only because they think it is a Republican’s fault.
For over two years, now, people on the right have been subjected to shootings, assaults, threats, and general distemper from liberals. But the media has been utterly silent about the left’s attacks on America.
But on Wednesday, a handful of fake, non-working “bombs” were sent to a number of high-profile Democrats and suddenly the media has discovered that there is this terrible thing called “political violence” out there.
The Daily Wire’s Matt Walsh posted a piece noting four examples of liberals committing violence against Republicans that the media just didn’t care to talk about.
And while the media ignored these incidents and refused to pin the violence on Democrats, these fake bombs have already been defined as “the MAGA Bombs” despite the fact that we don’t have even the first clue who sent them or why.
Walsh noted four incidents the media has refused to properly define as violence spurred by the Democrat Party.
1) Ricin sent to President Trump and other administration officials
What is most amazing about this terroristic action is that it only happened two weeks ago and the media has already forgotten about it.
2) Attack on GOP at congressional baseball game
This was the incident in June of last year when Bernie Sanders operative (not just a supporter, but a campaign operative) James T. Hodgkinson tried to gun down as many Republican members of Congress as he could. The media not only quickly put this story in their rear-view mirror, they NEVER properly described it as Democrat-sponsored violence. If Hodgkinson had been a Republican and shot down members of the Democrat Party we’d still be hearing his name evoked by every single TV talking head today.
3) Mass murder of police at Black Lives Matter rally in Dallas
A Black Lives Matter-sponsored shooting that happened in 2016. Media has ignored it.
4) Riots in Ferguson and Baltimore
This was another left-wing sponsored assault on civilization.
Walsh has more at his post which is worth a read.
But Walsh isn’t alone in chronicling the left’s perfidy, violence, and hate. Indeed, Breitbart News’ John Nolte has listed an incredible 613 incidents of liberal violence or threats of same that has occurred since 2016.
“It is open season on Trump supporters, and the media is only fomenting, encouraging, excusing, and hoping for more,” Nolte wrote. “The media are now openly calling Trump supporters “Nazis” and are blaming Trump for a mass murder he had nothing to do with. This, of course, is a form of harassment because it incites and justifies mob violence.”
What follows that intro is a full list of every incident of violence or inciting of the same coming from the Democrat Party. The list is simply amazing, but what is more amazing is that the media has ignored ALL of this.
There is also a Youtube Video channel that is gathering up all the videos of liberals physically assaulting Trump supporters. This channel is worth keeping an eye on.
