The media has tried to criticize Trump over the government’s response to protects in Washington, D.C. They even slammed law enforcement for allegedly using tear gas on “peaceful” protestors. But Attorney General Barr tells a different story. What went on in our capital was far from peaceful and he says the media knows it.
Even during a time like this, why should we expect the mainstream media to actually do its job? Protests, riots, and looting happened all over the country. It was a prime opportunity for reporters to rise up, do their job, and prove to America just how vital they are.
Instead they pushed lies to hurt Trump. Typical.
The media told us a fairy tale that all the protests going across the country were nice and peaceful. But we all watched the numerous video clips, revealing widespread looting, Antifa-inspired violence, and the destruction of many (black-owned) businesses. For anyone to believe the media’s hogwash, they’d have to be willfully stupid.
At beginning of last week, riots hit Washington, D.C. Instead of focusing on how these anarchists and left-wing activists burned a historic church and nearly destroyed parts of the city, the media claims Trump used tear gas on “peaceful demonstrators.” Attorney General Barr sat down to explain how utterly dishonest that was.
“They were not peaceful protesters,” Barr said. “And that’s one of the big lies that the media seems to be perpetuating at this point.”
“…On Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, okay, there were violent riots at Lafayette Park where the park police were under constant attack…”
“On Sunday, things reached a crescendo,” Barr continued. “The officers were pummeled with bricks. Crowbars were used to pry up the pavers at the park and they were hurled at police. There were fires set in not only St. John’s Church, but a historic building at Lafayette was burned down.” [Source: Daily Wire]
Barr explained that tear gas was only used to clear away rioters so that fire fighters could reach St. John’s Church—before it burned to the ground. Meanwhile, rioters were ripping up pavement with crowbars to hurl at police. They broke into the Treasury Department. And they tried to overthrow the barricades to enter the White House. Barr reveals that one hundred and fifty law enforcement officers were injured. None of this was discussed by the media.
Why would our media cover this up? Why would they portray violent anarchists and thugs as “peaceful,” when these same people attacked reporters and assaulted CNN’s headquarters?
It’s simple. The media (the propaganda wing for Democrats) is pushing the narrative that all cops are violent and racist. And that these peaceful protestors are being wrongfully beaten, arrested, and abused. Even as we watch Antifa and BLM burn our cities, Democrats want us to think that it’s the cops that are the enemy.
Not the scum who burn the American flag.
This is all so they can push the insane idea of defunding and outright eliminating police departments. Something that would have been unthinkable just a few years ago is a now a major demand by Democrats across the country, thanks to the propaganda spread by the media.
The media does not want you to know about the violence in D.C., because that might stir up sympathy for President Trump and law enforcement. So, they spread the lies that only a few people were violent, and the rest were boy scouts singing “Kumbaya.”
That doesn’t explain the widespread destruction across the capital and major cities. A few lone looters don’t burn down churches, police stations, and apartment buildings.
Try as the might, the media cannot hide that fact that it’s their side causing all the trouble. And they will be held accountable for it.
