Man Rams Van into Trump Volunteers - MSM Does Not Blink

Mon Feb 10, 2020 4:55 pm

In a stunning portrayal of the state of our media, a Florida man plows his van into a Republican voter registration tent tent, gets out, makes a video, flips off the victims and leaves. I noticed the headline on Google News for about half a day on Sunday and then it quickly disappeared. If this had been a Bernie tent, or any other campaign or movement, it would be front and center for weeks as a civil emergency, just as the ramming in Charlotte. We would see plenty of hand-wringing by the usual pundits about how Trump instigated violent behavior by one of his supporters. Twitter would be in a frenzy as every "celebrity" chimes in against "hate perpetrated by Trump". We know this because it happens every time a republican insults some protected person - reporters camped out on lawns for a week. Today? Nothing. A search of the headlines reveals only three outlets even reported the arraignment of a suspect - MSM does not care when the roles of political violence is reversed. This is not unlike that attempted mass-assassination of Republican Congressmen and Senators by a deranged leftist that is never mentioned.

This is why media has been thought as biased for years, it is not always how they report something, it is often more to do with WHAT they report.

What "victims?" There were no injuries.

And yet you cited a media source.

Immigrant children are being taken away from their parents, imprisoned in cages, deprived of adequate nutrition and hygiene and yes, even raped.But you're clutching your pearls over one bad actor and how the media handles it.

It's very revealing you get worked up about this and rant about media bias.

This post is trash. It was all over the media, and there is no real discussion other than an ignorant thread starter that needs to clean out their browser cache.

Considering there are multiple media sources in the link provided, the entire premise of this post is flawed. Locked.
