From Adam Shaw’s article at (gasp!) breitbart.com, here is a story about yesterdays’ deadly Charlottesville riots you won’t hear much about from mainstream media:
A female reporter for the Hill was allegedly punched by an “Antifa” protester in the wake of a deadly car attack in Charlottesville, Virginia Saturday as she tried to film the ensuing chaos.
Taylor Lorenz was filming the site of the incident that left at least one person dead — after a car was driven into a crowd of “anti-fascist” protesters responding to a parallel white nationalist protest in the city. The suspect was identified by police late Saturday as 20-year-old James Alex Fields Jr.
According to video given to DailyMail.com by Lorenz (who is a former reporter for the outlet), a nearby shirtless protester objects to her filming the resulting pandemonium and is heard asking her to stop filming. When she refuses to put her camera away, he appears to punch her and yells “stop fucking recording.” Lorenz can be heard yelling as her phone hits the ground, and others intervene.
Oh? There were “antifa” people there?
Isn’t “antifa” the same group that wreaks violence and property destruction everywhere that people dare to openly state beliefs which disagree with theirs?
So when President Trump said “We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry, and violence on many sides, on many sides”, there really was more than one side to condemn.
One other thing: when media report Mr. Trump’s condemnation how many of them also report the next sentence***?
In case you don’t know what I’m talking about – and that’s a good bet, since it is almost always being left out – Trump said:
“Above all, we must remember this truth, no matter our color, creed, religion or political party, we are all Americans first.”
So how come almost no media provide the public with that part of his statement? Anyone have a guess?
***This was much worse than I thought.
They actually left out a lot more than that one sentence. Here is the full quote from President Trump, made before he said what I originally characterized as the second sentence:
“We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides. On many sides. It’s been going on for a long time in our country. Not Donald Trump, not Barack Obama. I’s been going on for a long, long time. It has no place in America. What is vital now, is a swift restoration of law and order, and the protection of innocent lives.”
The reason I didn’t know about it until today (Monday)? I didn’t see it reported anywhere. I only know about it from seeing a video.
This is yet another of the countless reasons it is impossible to trust mainstream media anymore.
