Remember when media people were up in arms about the danger President Trump was creating for them when he called their reports “fake news”?
How many attacks on media people have you heard about, for this or any other reason? Even one?
But, since our media are so worried about political retribution in the form of physical attacks, can you explain to me why there was so little coverage of gregory timm – who decided that his opposition of President Trump was a good reason to drive his car into a voter registration tent being set up by Republican workers.
From Myah Ward’s article at politico.com:
A Florida man who drove his van into a Republican voter registration tent was motivated by opposition to President Donald Trump, according to a newly released police report.
“The suspect advised that he does not like President Trump,” the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office report of Gregory Timm’s arrest says. The report detailed more motivation for the Saturday attack, in which no one was injured, but it was redacted. The report does say Timm “advised the other reason was ‘it’s like someone shitting on your grave.’”
Timm, 27, reportedly accelerated his vehicle toward the canopy tent and tables, while victims moved to avoid being struck. Timm then knocked over several tables, chairs and the tent with his car, according to the report, and got out of his vehicle, took out his phone and “flipped them off” before driving away.
This happened almost a week ago. But, other than local coverage and political, mostly conservative, websites, how much media attention did it get? Did you see it on the network news? In major newspapers?
A Trump-hating lunatic tries to run over Republican workers for the “crime” of attempting to register voters, and the same media that shed crocodile tears over how dangerous it was for President Trump to dare challenge their accuracy look the other way and ignore it.
What hypocrites. What frauds.
But, then again, why would we expect more? Over the Trump years we have seen dozens of videos showing physical attacks on Trump supporters, that were either completely or almost completely ignored by these same media….and who knows how many more that weren’t recorded. Attacks on Trump supporters are, pretty clearly, no problem to these hypocrites; these frauds.
And now we have another one, as reported by Brooke Singman at foxnews.com:
A New Hampshire man was arrested Thursday afternoon after allegedly assaulting a 15-year-old Trump supporter and two adults at a polling site during the state’s first-in-the-nation primary earlier this week.
Police said the incident happened Tuesday as Bradley exited the voting location inside the high school and was walking by a Trump campaign tent occupied by several supporters. As he passed by the tent, police said, Bradley slapped a 15-year old juvenile across the face and then assaulted two other adults who attempted to intercede.
Bradley is also accused of throwing Trump campaign signs and attempting to knock over the campaign tent, police said.
“My son was standing outside on the sidewalk and he said ‘have a nice night,’ he said it to everyone. But this man was triggered,” (the child’s mother) explained. “He said ‘f— you’ to him and wound up his hand as fast as he could and slapped him across the face.”
Campbell said that a man, also wearing a MAGA hat, came over to intervene. According to Campbell, that man now has a fractured jaw.
Do you think this violent attack on a 15 year old child for daring to support the President of the United States and on two adults for trying to stop the attack, would be enough to generate some mainstream media interest?
I’ll wait a couple of days and report back on whether it is treated as major news…minor news…or even reported at all. But I’m not betting on it.
Wrong political party.
