Media takes heat for ignoring violent attacks on Trump supporters

| November 15, 2020


MAGA March Washington DC Yesterday

Mostly unreported, supporters of President Donald Trump protested the election results and marched to the Supreme Court. Later, nighttime clashes with counterdemonstrators led to fistfights, at least one stabbing and more than 20 arrests.

Videos posted on social media showed fights as pro-Trump demonstrators sparred with fascists demanding they take their MAGA hats and banners and leave.

Rep. Lee Zeldin, R-N.Y., said ‘media blackout’ was ‘terrible’ and ‘telling’

By Evie Fordham

Conservatives criticized members of the media for failing to cover violence against President Trump’s supporters at the so-called Million MAGA March in Washington, D.C., on Saturday.

“I want to hear Joe Biden and Kamala Harris condemn Antifa/BLM criminals who assaulted and harassed peaceful demonstrators in DC today, including elderly and families,” political strategist Doug Stafford wrote on Twitter on Saturday. “Of course they won’t. And ‘media’ won’t make them.”

“Watching video of people being assaulted and mobbed by BLM/Antifa in DC tonight brings back awful memories. Want an example of media bias? When Rand Paul and I spoke out about our mob assault, the AP reported our claim was ‘without evidence’ despite 10 minutes of video,” Paul’s wife Kelley Ashby Paul wrote on Twitter.

The Pauls were surrounded by what the senator described as a “crazed mob” after the Republican National Convention in August.

Rep. Lee Zeldin, R-N.Y., said the “media blackout” was “terrible” and “telling.”

“The President’s supporters have a right to peacefully rally supporting POTUS just like his opponents have that same right,” Zeldin wrote on Twitter. “The physical assaults today by violent leftists targeting his supporters is abhorrent. The near total media blackout of the violence is terrible… [and] telling.”

And completely unsurprising. Read the entire article here: Fox News

    No, the right doesn’t have the right to exist.
    Period……
    We might hurt someone’s feelings…..
    This shit is just getting started. If they want a civil war, this is how you get it….
    Us Veterans don’t want a war, period. We also want other Americans to have the same rights as we do, they don’t want anyone to have any rights, only things they agree with and that is subject to change at any given time at which point you will be fired, cancelled from FB, twitt’s etc….

    The hypocrisy of the left AND the media is so blatantly obvious. The inclusion, diversity, and tolerance that they speak of doesn’t include anyone that doesn’t have their mindset. Was reading up on this and watching the videos during the night. Everything seemed to be not just mostly peaceful, it was totally peaceful until the trash showed up. The restraint of the people being attacked was remarkable, I’m concerned that I would not have the same restraint.

    Who knew that we would be able to watch the destruction of our Country from domestic enemies in real time as it happened. Lock and Load! Prepare to repel boarders. Load double canister, 1/4 second fuse…Prepare to fire on Command!

    This BS pissing you off yet? Anybody still think this is about career dope headed criminals getting their damn fool selves killed by a dumbass cop or 2? Anybody? Bueller?

  3. STSC(SW/SS) says:

    Leftist mayors and governors will do nothing to protect free speech from the right. They will let the mob terrorize those who will not comply with the leftist agenda.

    If the Dems are successful of this kind of fraud they will do it again in 2024 and 2028. They will fill the Supreme Court seats by attrition with the possible retirements of Alito and Thomas. Breyer may retire and let a radical leftist fill the seat that will may Sotomayor and Kagen look like conservatives. This will make matters only worse.

    If Trump loses reelection it’s time to start thinking of secession.

    I’m shocked there is selective reporting in the media. Shocked I tell you.

  5. Wireman611 says:

    Kurt Schlicter called this, only he was 4 years early.

  6. 11B-Mailclerk says:

    Just wait. They will “deplatform” TAH if they can. No dissent or deviation is allowed by the Left. Folks have the freedom to agree and the right to applaud.

    Watch.

  9. Mason says:

    Democrats complain about Russia “collusion” for four years and the media lap it up. Trump and his supporters discuss obvious and documented vote fraud and it’s “without evidence.” They demand ironclad evidence during every two minute interview. They never once questioned Pelosi, Schumer, Schiff, or any of the others for proof of their wild conspiracy theories.

      Know what the smell of freedom is?

      The ripe aroma of a recently hanged “journalist” swinging from a lamp post…

      • rgr769 says:

        That works for me. Back in the old days they were reporters, who asked who, what, where, and when. Then they wrote their stories, irrespective of who’s sacred ox was going to be gored. Now, they are professional propagandists who know they better not deviate from the MSM approved narratives, no matter how bogus they are.

  10. A Proud Infidel®™️ says:

    Gee whiz, the snooze media using bias in their coverage? That’s business as usual to them and now Fox News has joined them! Let those fleabags mess with those of us who have been to war and want to be left alone and they will pay dearly.

  11. Thunderstixx says:

    Tell me we did n’t see this coming…
    The Durham investigation is closing down now, with nothing to show for the years of “investigation” because of biteme blowback….
    None of those fucks have anything resembling a spine…
    Why am I not surprised ?????

      Remember they are effing lawers, who are commonly cowards. Thank God I was a professional soldier before I became one.

      Do believe we called it ‘stixx! Hey Skippy, how’s it feel to find out we were right? Just like that water in the men’s urinal, the swamp is cold…and deep too.

      Good bye America, I Loved You. Sure wanted my Grand Children to grow older in the same Country that I did. Not.Gonna.Happen.Now!

      • Thunderstixx says:

        Yes KOB, we all did call it. I was trying to be patient hoping against hope that they actually would do something except fold their hand and run for cover…
        Sounds like Montgomery and his Market Garden plan…
        God, let’s not make the Nazi’s mad or destroy any property in our limited war…..
        That worked out really good, didn’t it…
        I’m telling you, unless we see some movement in the SCOTUS, all bets are off for getting out of this without a hot civil war….

          Don’t threaten me with a …. time.
          Not sure how I feel about the boog, on one hand I have a ‘certain set of skills’ and getting the ‘band back together’ would be neat(?).
          Yet having been to war, seeing the outrageous waste it all is…

              Or maybe we’re putting this band back together. You better see the light cause this time we ARE on a Mission from God.

                Word! My plan is to drink my final toast to Valor from the cup skull of mine enemies. Would be nice to have access to some of the toys that I did in my younger days. We do have a plan, a fall back position, and a few tricks. We will give a good accounting of ourselves. Just cause they may be able to find out where this laptop is, it don’t mean nuthin’!

      No wonder they kept “investigating” for so long…

  12. Penguinman000 says:

    I don’t get any of you being upset about this. They’ve been selectively reporting on cops for years. The news organizations don’t report, they spin out product to achieve their ends.

    Nothing new.

    What’s new(ish) is the death of MSM. Viewership rates are way down and revenues are cratering. No end in sight for them. This is a desperate attempt to correct their bottom lines. They can’t compete with everyone having a smart phone and access to the internet.

    • Ex-PH2 says:

      What Penguinman is saying, in case you can’t figure it out: is this: FOLLOW THE GODDAMN MONEY!!

      They’re all losing money and they know it. Can you watch any — ANY — YouTube show or clip without an ad interrupting it? I can’t find a way to shut those things off, and I get hit with more and more ads on my local news sites for what I politely term absolute crap than I have ever seen. And it doesn’t matter if I have adblockers or not. The ads? I just click “dislike this ad” or whatever the most negative thing is there.

      FOLLOW THE MONEY, PEOPLE!!! ALWAYS FOLLOW THE MONEY!!!

  13. Graybeard says:

    IF Trump is duly recognized as the elected POTUS, I want to see legal investigation into the media’s illegal and unreported “gifts in kind” to the Biden/Harris and other (D)ictators’ campaigns.

  14. The Other Whitey says:

    These leftist bullies are getting used to messing with people who aren’t looking for trouble. Things will get…interesting…when they try this shit on the guy who woke up wishing a motherfucker would.

    Where the fuck did Lars go? Radio silence.

  16. Skippy says:

    So I have a question for everyone
    With Durham dropping his investigation
    Does that mean Barr and Durham will be working
    For the new Biden administration????

  17. NHSparky says:

    Our ancestors would be shooting by now.

  18. UpNorth says:

    Trump should purchase the building, equipment and the network of CNN, which is rumored to be for sale, and then publicly fire Anderson Pooper, Jim Acosta, Don Lemon, Jake Tapper and all the rest of the empty heads that work there.
