We all know that certain media personalities had made a point of Expressing fear that President Trump calling them purveyors of “fake news” puts them in danger.
Would it be fair to assume that if Trump supporters profanely spoke about their children, and screamed that they know where the chilfren live, this would be thought of as an escalation of that danger?
With the above in mind, please read this excerpt from John Binder’s article at breitbart.com:
In exclusive footage captured by Matt Perdie of Breitbart News, protesters with Never Again Action, Miramar Circle of Protection Friends of Miami-Dade Detainees, Food Not Bombs Fort Lauderdale, Students Working for Equal Rights, and the Black Lives Matter Alliance of Broward County shouted threats at workers and former employees of the GEO Group, a private contractor used by ICE for facility and detention space.
One protester specifically threatened GEO Group’s former general counsel John Bulfin, shouting the locations and addresses of where his children live in the United States.
“We know where all your children live throughout the country … John Bulfin you have kids in [bleeped out], you have kids in [bleeped out],” the protester shouted. “We know everything about you and you won’t just be seeing us here.”
“We know where you sleep at night,” another protester shouted. “We know what kind of dog food you buy your dogs.”
“We’re not actually joking,” the protester said before shouting the location of where Bulfin lives. “John Bulfin you go to [bleeped out], you go to church on [bleeped out], you live on [bleeped out the] road. We are not joking.”
The threats came just a day before gunmen allegedly fired shots into local ICE offices and GEO Group offices in San Antonio, Texas in what the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is describing as a “targeted attack.”
Is there any doubt that this poses a danger to the people being threatened?
Is there any doubt that if similar threats were sent, say, Jim Acosta’s way, we would be reading about it in the newspapers and hearing about it on broadcast media?
But as I’m sure you know, it is unlikely you will see or hear even one word in almost any mainstream media venues.
The reason? Because it is directed not at media, but at people most of our media, think of as the bad guys…thus not worthy of coverage.
And they still wonder why fewer and fewer people trust them?
