DEADLY RACISM, TWO PRESIDENTS, AND THE LYING “NEWS” MEDIA
Remember how the media praised Obama for not condemning Black Lives Matter after 5 cops were murdered?

August 28, 2017

What would we find, specifically, if we examined how America's most influential media outlets used their news pages ⸺ as distinguished from their opinion pages ⸺ to report on how Presidents Trump and Obama, respectively, responded to homicides that occurred in racially charged circumstances?

The Coverage of Trump

Earlier this month, on August 12, a group of white nationalists held a rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, ostensibly to protest the proposed removal of a statue of the Confederate General Robert E. Lee from a local park. Those demonstrators clashed with a leftist group of counter-demonstrators, many of whom represented the Marxist/anarchist movement known as Antifa, and one woman was killed when a young white nationalist rammed his car into a crowd of counter-protesters. Shortly after the mayhem, President Trump condemned “the egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides” in Charlottesville. In response, the left rose up like a chorus condemning the president for failing to specifically call out the instigators as “white supremacists,” and for choosing to assign blame not only to the supremacists but also to the Marxists and anarchists. Two days after that, on August 14, Trump specifically named “the KKK,” “neo-Nazis,” and “white supremacists” as objects of ridicule. But by then, it was far too late to mollify the left. He hadn't said exactly the right words, with precisely the right inflection, at just the right moment.

CNN reported that as a result of Trump's initial statement criticizing violence from “many sides,” various “Nazi, alt-right and white supremacist groups … were emboldened by the condemnation, which they saw as a defense, or even as a tacit approval.” “By refusing to name the white nationalist groups at the center of the conflict,” CNN elaborated, “the President left the definition of both 'hatred' and 'violence' up to interpretation and handed the groups a rhetorical victory.” Trump's subsequent statement of August 14, added CNN, “divided his white nationalist supporters,” some of whom “heard the diluted words of a man forced to bow to media pressure,” while “others found winking encouragement in between the lines.” Citing, in particular, former KKK leader David Duke's dissatisfaction with Trump's second statement, CNN noted that “not all of his [Trump's] supporters are pleased.”

...

The Coverage of Obama

Now, let's look at how CNN, the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, and the Washington Post dealt — on their news pages — with President Obama's highly politicized, utterly reprehensible rhetoric in the wake of a horrific multiple murder by a black racist in Dallas just one year earlier.


First, the backdrop: On July 6, 2016, Obama issued a statement saying that “all Americans should be deeply troubled” by the then-recent police shooting deaths of two black men, Alton Sterling (in Baton Rouge) and Philando Castile (in Minnesota). The president emphasized that “these fatal shootings [were] not isolated incidents,” but were “symptomatic” of the very “serious problem” of “racial bias in law enforcement” and throughout the entire “criminal justice system.” The following day, July 7, a black gunman in Dallas murdered five police officersand wounded six others during a Black Lives Matter protest against the Sterling and Castile shootings. During a subsequent standoff with police, the gunman made it clear that he wanted to kill white people, especially police officers, and he emphatically declared his solidarity with Black Lives Matter.

Founded by Marxist revolutionaries, Black Lives Matter is a black supremacist movement that depicts white police officers as trigger-happy bigots who are ever-prepared to gun down innocent black men, and it reveres Assata Shakur, the former Black Panther who murdered a white police officer in 1973 and has spent the past several decades as a fugitive in Communist Cuba.

Some Final Words

So, there you have it: a vivid illustration of how America's “news” industry has devolved into a collective propaganda mill. It's not a “news” industry in any sense of the word. It's a circus, and the “reporters” who wrote the “news” articles referenced above are merely a few of its many red-nosed clowns.

And now for the kicker: On July 13, 2016 — the day after Obama delivered his disgusting “eulogy” at the police memorial service in Dallas — the president hosted three Black Lives Matter leaders at a lengthy White House meeting. Another special guest at that meeting was Obama's chief adviser on racial matters, the legendary racist anti-Semite, Al Sharpton.

Dear, God, man! The Front Page article's first sentence makes clear the point of the protesters was not in fact about the statue.
...a group of white nationalists held a rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, ostensibly to protest the proposed removal of a statue of the Confederate General Robert E. Lee from a local park.
Click the link. Read the definition, both of them. Then click on "Synonym Guide" and read the connotation for "ostensible." That connotation applies to both definitions of the word.

The Front Page article writer knows damn well merely "bitching" about a statue isn't what that protest about, yet he has the gall to take exception with CNN stating that "Nazi, alt-right and white supremacist groups … were emboldened by the condemnation, which they saw as a defense, or even as a tacit approval." That even as CNN substantiated their assertion by quoting Andrew Anglin, which Front Page conveniently omits as follows:
Andrew Anglin, the creator of the Nazi site The Daily Stormer, praised Trump's response. "He didn't attack us," he wrote in a blog post on the site. "(He) implied that there was hate ... on both sides. So he implied the antifa are haters. There was virtually no counter-signaling of us all."
That looks to me like Anglin took "winking encouragement" from Trump's remarks. Moreover, CNN reported that white supremacist groups were as annoyed that Trump didn't call out Antifa as were "everyone" else who isn't a Trumpkin was that Trump didn't call out the KKK and Neo Nazis. Both sides are happy that Trump denounced violence; nobody has a problem with that part of Trump's statement.


The Front Page also makes the utterly unsubstantiated claim that:
Founded by Marxist revolutionaries, Black Lives Matter is a black supremacist movement that depicts white police officers as trigger-happy bigots
Um...I looked for the goals of the BLM movement/organization and found them. There are:
  • Ending "broken windows" policing, which aggressively polices minor crimes in an attempt to stop larger ones
  • using community oversight for misconduct rather than having police decide what consequences officers face
  • making standards for reporting police use of deadly force
  • independently investigating and prosecuting police misconduct
  • having the racial makeup of police departments reflect the communities they serve
  • requiring officers to wear body cameras
  • providing more training for police officers
  • ending for-profit policing practices
  • ending the police use of military equipment
  • implementing police union contracts that hold officers accountable for misconduct
I don't have a problem with those goals. It doesn't make sense to me that anyone would.

What a load of crap, hater dupe.
Wiki:
Black Lives Matter (BLM) is an international activist movement, originating in the African-American community, that campaigns against violence and systemic racism towards black people. BLM regularly holds protests against police killings of black people and broader issues of racial profiling, police brutality, and racial inequality in the United States criminal justice system.

In 2013, the movement began with the use of the hashtag #BlackLivesMatter on social media after the acquittal ofGeorge Zimmerman in the shooting death of African-American teen Trayvon Martin.

From the OP article:

So,
  • Do you think Obama did the right thing by not calling out BLM? Or was he wrong in not doing so?
  • Was CNN wrong or right not to have chided Obama for failing to call out BLM? That is, should they or should they not have chided him thus?

BLM don't follow their own charter, it's there for show...

BLM

The six platform demands are:

1. End the war on black people.

2.
Reparations for past and continuing harms.

3. Divestment from the institutions that criminalize, cage and harm black people; and investment in the education, health and safety of black people.

4. Economic justice for all and a reconstruction of the economy to ensure our communities have collective ownership, not merely access.

5. Community control of the laws, institutions and policies that most impact us.

6. Independent black political power and black self-determination in all areas of society.

In red is problematic...

...

BLM

While this platform is focused on domestic policies, we know that patriarchy, exploitative capitalism, militarism, and white supremacy know no borders. We stand in solidarity with our international family against the ravages of global capitalism and anti-Black racism, human-made climate change, war, and exploitation. We also stand with descendants of African people all over the world in an ongoing call and struggle for reparations for the historic and continuing harms of colonialism and slavery. We also recognize and honor the rights and struggle of our Indigenous family for land and self-determination.

Platform - The Movement for Black Lives

They want power, yes they're anti-capitalist BUT they want money from everybody on the planet, lol.
Fuck BLM and all who stand by them...

And fuck you, Jihad, you lying little bigoted asshole. Yes, the news media is very unfair to the treasonous fat senile old orange clown. They actually show the videos of him telling the constant lies that he tells. The clown tells them at the rate of 5 a day.
