I’m not sure exactly what Elijah Cummings said about Trump that set him off–nor do I care since it was probably a bad-faith lie–but Trump was not having any of it:
….As proven last week during a Congressional tour, the Border is clean, efficient & well run, just very crowded. Cumming District is a disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess. If he spent more time in Baltimore, maybe he could help clean up this very dangerous & filthy place
Why is so much money sent to the Elijah Cummings district when it is considered the worst run and most dangerous anywhere in the United States. No human being would want to live there. Where is all this money going? How much is stolen? Investigate this corrupt mess immediately!
As you probably are aware now, this set off a frenzy among the Blue Checks. Everyone knows white men like Trump are not allowed to criticize black politicians like Elijah Cummings, no matter how valid the criticism is.
….a look, the facts speak far louder than words! The Democrats always play the Race Card, when in fact they have done so little for our Nation’s great African American people. Now, lowest unemployment in U.S. history, and only getting better. Elijah Cummings has failed badly!
2. Baltimore is infested with rats. Animal Planet once ran a special on the “Top 10 Rat Infested Places” in the world and Baltimore was in it, along with a place in Alaska literally named “Rat Island.” Here is the entry for Baltimore:
“Baltimore’s rat problem is bad enough that at one point, rats tunneled so intensely beneath a particular area of pavement that when garbage collectors drove over it, their truck sunk up to its axles. Rats in the vicinity took full advantage of the mishap and swarmed the truck, gorging on the garbage inside.
Baltimore also enjoys the dubious distinction of being a hotspot for rat-related research, beginning during World War II and continuing today, much of it carried out at Johns Hopkins University.”
Last year there was even a documentary made about Baltimore’s infamous rat problem:
Elijah Cummings has done such a wonderful job representing Baltimore that people made a documentary about its Rat (aka vermin) problem.
Not only that, but there’s video of former Baltimore mayor Catherine Pugh literally walking through a slum in West Baltimore and ripping the place, saying among other things, “Whoa, you can smell the rats” and “Oh my God, you can smell the dead animals”:
3. Elijah Cummings is a corrupt scumbag who has been in Congress since 1996 and was a State Representative from Baltimore for 13 years prior to that. During those 36 years his city has fallen apart. Not sure how it’s controversial to blame Baltimore’s problems on someone who has been in power for three and a half decades. What has Elijah Cummings done to make Baltimore a better place? You’d think that after 36 years there would be some improvement–in the crime rate, in tackling the rat infestation, in rebuilding the dilapidated slums–to show for his time in power–anything at all.
But no. We’re instead told to believe that Cummings is doing a great job and that Baltimore is in such bad shape because of Racist White People. Anyone who thinks otherwise must be a Racist.
I’m glad we’re finally asking the important questions here: Why are Democrats given a free pass for lining their pockets while their districts are unlivable warzones that never get any better? It’s not just Cummings’ district in Baltimore, either. It’s urban districts all across the country–notably here in Chicago.
How come we’re not allowed to point out that Democrats have had single-party rule over most American cities and yet the cities are a mess?
“Rep. Elijah Cummings’ wife runs a nonprofit that has taken millions from interest groups with business before the Oversight Committee that Cummings chairs.
Cummings’ wife did not answer a request from The Daily Caller News Foundation to review the forms, which a lawyer said was illegal.
A watchdog group filed a complaint with the IRS saying that Cummings’ family could be trading favors for money, and told TheDCNF about the wife’s “creepy” and “weird” conduct when it spoke with her.”
I’m sure it’s racist to point this out, too.
As usual, Democrats are not angry because Trump lied. They’re mad because he dared speak a truth most Republicans would be terrified to broach.
However, it was none other than Bernie Sanders who said Baltimore was like a third world country in 2015:
Bernie Sanders visited Rep. Elijah Cummings district in 2015. He was shocked by what he saw.
"You would think that you were in a third world country," Sanders said. "We're talking about a community in which there are hundreds of buildings that are uninhabitable." pic.twitter.com/nqlCJS34RM
— Trump War Room – Text TRUMP to 88022 (@TrumpWarRoom) July 28, 2019
But when Trump says it, it’s racist.
Crazy Bernie Sanders recently equated the City of Baltimore to a THIRD WORLD COUNTRY! Based on that statement, I assume that Bernie must now be labeled a Racist, just as a Republican would if he used that term and standard! The fact is, Baltimore can be brought back, maybe……
Now, of course, because Trump dared to point out that Baltimore is a rat-infested warzone, all of the sudden the left has rallied around Baltimore as this wonderful utopia. They just love Baltimore so much now:
On a flight back to Baltimore.
Flight attendant welcomes passengers flying to the “spectacular, beautiful, amazing city.”
We’re supposed to criticize him for telling the truth? Got it.
Again, these Dem Blue Checks aren’t angry at Trump for mischaracterizing the city of Baltimore. They’re mad at him for daring to call attention to their decades upon decades of failure and corruption in the city.
Even Fox News’ Chris Wallace tried to get on the Blue Check Outrage Bandwagon and lie about what Trump said:
No, "vermin" is a reference to "vermin" — the rats etc. that infest Democrat-run cities. Especially Los Angeles, which, according to Dr. Drew, is near bubonic plague because there's no plan for rats (and CA is about to ban rodenticide). https://t.co/dySCZzvMRH via @BreitbartNews
What a dishonest rat this Chris Wallace is. Trump has a way of getting people to show their true colors, and our supposed ally at Fox News, Chris Wallace, has shown his. Disregard anything this lying Uniparty shill says.
Of course, this is what the dishonest left has to do all the time. They have to distract from the real issues because their continued reign depends on people either ignoring or being afraid to discuss the real issues in this country. They have to conflate Trump’s criticism of the people in charge of Baltimore with criticism of the everyday people who live there because they know the people in charge are indefensible.
They have to muddy the waters. It’s all they can do:
The current state of Baltimore is a real thing the impeachment inquiry is a phony, political stunt.
“How dare Trump talk about the real problems in Baltimore instead of our stupid, cooked-up Witch Hunt over a crime that never happened and investigation that shouldn’t have happened!”
Translation: WE control the conversation, damnit! Stop letting the Orange Man distract you from what WE want to talk about!
Trump summed it all up:
There is nothing racist in stating plainly what most people already know, that Elijah Cummings has done a terrible job for the people of his district, and of Baltimore itself. Dems always play the race card when they are unable to win with facts. Shame!
Bottom line: it’s long past time we started talking about the sorry state of America’s inner cities. Baltimore is just the beginning. There are parts of this country that are virtually indistinguishable from third-world hellholes, and that’s unacceptable. We need to start pointing the finger at the culprits, even if they shriek RACIST when exposed to sunlight.
Trump is right to point out the Rule of Law aspect, as this should never have been a matter for the courts to decide in the first place. There is no genuine constitutional question as to whether President Trump can do this; it’s only become a question because leftwing Open Borders federal courts accepted the case after it was filed dishonestly by leftwing Open Borders groups.
No matter what sort of legal jargon this gets bogged down in, never lose sight of the main point: should we have a border wall or not? Democrats are doing everything in their power to stop the wall from going up and make it seem like this isn’t ultimately about the wall, but it is.
Now 100 miles of fencing can go up:
Now, the US-Mexico border is almost 2,000 miles long so we’re going to need a lot more than this to get it fully secured, but I’ll take this nonetheless.
For a while I’ve been trying to find a graphic that shows the most porous sections of the border and after some time I was able to find this:
My initial assumption was that the Rio Grande portion of the border was the most naturally secure due to the presence of the river, but apparently the opposite is true: the Rio Grande is where the highest number of illegals are apprehended.
Perhaps that’s because southern Texas is the southernmost part of the US mainland and thus the closest part of the border for most Mexicans.
Also, Google Map’s terrain view shows that much of the US-Mexican border and especially northern Mexico is a desert, meaning it’s far more difficult to traverse than the Rio Grande valley:
Mexico’s population density map bears that out: nobody really lives in that north/central desert region. The population is mostly concentrated in the southern/central part of the country:
So of course the southern tip of Texas would be the most common destination for most illegals coming from (or through) Mexico.
“Our country should be more fearful of white men across the country, because they are actually causing most of the deaths within this country. We should be profiling, monitoring and creating policies to fight the radicalization of white men.”
Quite a claim, and I’m sure the masses who have been brainwashed to Hate Whitey (including a lot of white people themselves) believe it instinctively.
But are white people really “causing most of the deaths in this country?”
“According to the Department of Justice, white people (not just men) commit about 45% of the murders in the U.S. That seems high until you consider that white people are over 60% of the population. Whites are therefore underrepresented in the homicide department by about 15%. Blacks commit a little over 50% of the murders in America, despite accounting for only 13% of the total population. Those are the simple facts of the matter. Facts cannot be racist.”
I rate Ilhan Omar’s comment: FALSE.
She’s either racist against white people and was trying to stir up racial animosity against whites, or she’s totally oblivious to the hard data and was just talking out of her ass.
Me? I don’t give her the benefit of the doubt. She’s trying to provoke anti-white violence.
The collapse of the Russian Collusion Conspiracy theory is a stark lesson for a whole new generation that the media and supposed authorities in this country are complete and utter liars.
Watch as the media spends nearly two years boldly proclaiming that “the end” was near for Trump, that the walls were closing in and that Trump was finished due to a Russian Collusion “scandal” that the media made up:
Today, the left’s last best hope to impeach Trump after all else had failed, Robert Mueller, was summoned before Congress by Desperate Democrats because apparently they believed Mueller had more to say about Trump’s supposed criminality than he wrote in his office’s 448-page report, released several months ago.
I really have no idea what the Democrats thought today would achieve for them. Mueller has long since released his office’s report and it concluded there was no collusion, no obstruction and no reason to impeach Trump. Did they think Mueller was holding out? Or were they looking for some soundbite they could, through their dishonest accomplices in the media, misconstrue and manipulate into a justification for impeachment. It’s probably the latter.
But unfortunately for them, their champion Mueller looked like a doddering, senile old man who was used mainly as a legitimacy-granting figurehead for the Special Counsel investigation, which was staffed up and carried out by hardcore partisan Democrats.
Mueller gives the impression that he was hidden away in an assisted living home while other people conducted his investigation and wrote his Report
The old man was completely lost during today’s hearing. At one point he apparently claimed (or admitted, your choice) that he did not know what Fusion GPS was. Fusion GPS was the origin of the Steele Dossier, which itself was the basis for the entire Russiagate conspiracy theory and subsequent investigation:
Robert Mueller literally just said he wasn't familiar with Fusion GPS. My Lord. My Lord.
He was either lying or telling the truth and I’m not sure which is worse.
Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), who is turning into a real superstar, took Mueller to task over Mueller having hired Peter Strzok and an unnamed FBI agent who said “Vive La Resistance!” to the Special Counsel investigation. This exchange between Gaetz and Mueller was really indicative of how the whole thing went:
Just brutal. I almost felt bad for Mueller. He was left stuttering.
Gaetz had more highlights as well:
Mueller Is Finished. Toast. Done. Rep. @mattgaetz buried him.
Gaetz: Can you state that the Steele dossier wasn't Russian disinformation? Mueller: Dossier is before my time. Gaetz: So were Manafort's crimes. You charged him. Mueller: Not my purview. Gaetz: IT IS IN YOUR REPORT! pic.twitter.com/e0hHqW0wcC
The whole thing was just an embarrassment for Democrats.
Humiliating: Rep. Hakeem Jeffries spends five minutes trying to get Mueller to agree that Trump committed obstruction. At what was supposed to be the climax of the questioning, Mueller responds: "I'm not supportive of that analytical charge"
So Russiagate is now officially over, dead and buried. Of course Democrats are going to keep trying to dig it up and breathe life into it endlessly–I’m sure they’ll want to summon other members of the Mueller team to Capitol Hill after Mueller himself didn’t give them what they wanted. But the verdict in the court of public opinion is in: this whole thing was bullshit.
I hope most Americans realize today that they were lied to about Trump and Russia for nearly three years by the media, the entertainment industry and the political establishment. It was all lies.
I also hope most Americans, having realized that the elites lied to them about Russiagate, now start to wonder what else the elites have been lying about. Russian Collusion was not the first lie, nor will it be the last.
In conversations over the course of the two-plus year Russian Collusion Witch Hunt, people asked me if it’s really true that Trump colluded with the Russians. I said all along absolutely not. It’s all been made up.
People had a hard time believing that when I would tell them. They just couldn’t believe that the big cable news channels, the major newspapers, Hollywood and the late night talks shows were all lying.
Yet they were.
Most people in my generation are too young to remember the WMD fiasco during the Iraq War, but now we have our own version of it in the Russiagate Hoax.
The mainstream media should be forever discredited now that the conspiracy theory they bombarded the nation with for two years has gone down in flames. No one should ever again trust CNN, NYT, Bezos Post and all the rest given the absolute certainty with which they promoted Russiagate. Tune them out forever.
And then ask yourself, “If they lied about Russiagate, what else are they lying about? How far back does the lying go?” Because that’s the real rabbit hole.
Lately it seems that in many major American and European cities, the forces of chaos and barbarism are winning, while the common folk, seeking little more than peace, prosperity and order, are losing ground.
The collapse of advanced western civilization will not be a sudden, abrupt process but rather a gradual deterioration followed by some final blow which will put us out of our misery.
While I don’t know exactly what that “final blow” will be for America (for 5th century Rome it was the sack of Rome by the Visigoths, for 21st century Europe it will likely be formal conquest by Islam), this is what I mean by gradual deterioration:
This is lawlessness. When the police are helpless to enforce the law–both because they’re afraid to themselves and because the barbarians among us have no respect or fear for the police–it’s basically over. At that point the only thing the police can do to regain control is enact a brutal crackdown and basically begin a reign of terror to make people fear them again.
But we all know that’s not going to happen. The media and black race hustlers will shriek racism and the police will cower even further. The end result will be an ever-growing list of all but uninhabitable danger zones in major American cities where police fear to tread.
Before too long our cities will be small, heavily-guarded (by private security) wealthy enclaves surrounded by vast lawless, dystopian urban sprawl.
Day by day the foundation of Western Civilization crack more and more. Law and order are an integral part of that foundation, and without them we will descend into lawless chaos.
You can tell it’s real because she’s crying. Wow, so powerful. Local Upscale White Blue Checked Liberal NPCs reported to be “literally shaking” because they just care so freaking much about People Of Color and their plight in this miserable hellhole of a country.
“A Georgia state lawmaker has walked back — then doubled back down on — a significant part of her viral claim that a white man told her to “go back where you came from” during a testy argument in a supermarket checkout lane, after the man denied the encounter unfolded the way she described.
The episode, hot on the heels of a national controversy over President Trump’s remarks directed at four progressive Democrats, quickly made the rounds on social media.
Multiple news organizations on Sunday portrayed the episode as a plausible instance of racism using the lawmaker’s original claim, though she already had tried to clarify her accusations.”
As usual, the Mainstream Press is part of the problem and wasted no time spreading the false story, because the media collectively wanted her story to be true so it could spend another couple days screeching about Whitey.
“He said, ‘go back,’ you know, those types of words,” Thomas said on Saturday. “I don’t wanna say he said ‘go back to your country,’ or ‘go back to where you came from,’ but he was making those types of references, is what I remember.”
“So, you don’t remember exactly what he said?” a reporter pressed.
Thomas answered: “No, no, definitely not. But I know it was ‘go back,’ because I know I told him to ‘go back.'”
It gets even better:
“Sparkes has forcefully denied making the racially charged comment, and in a dramatic moment, showed up in the middle of a television news interview featuring Thomas outside the Atlanta-area Publix store where the initial confrontation had unfolded.
“Did I say that? Is it on video?” Sparkes asked Thomas in front of reporters. He acknowledged calling Thomas “a lazy b—h” because she had taken too many items to the express checkout lane, but he denied the incident had anything to do with race.
He’s right. She is a lazy bitch.
And an entitled one, too.
And a lying one on top of all that.
“Sparkes later told WSB-TV that despite Thomas’ claim he’s white, he is of Cuban descent — and, like Thomas, is a Democrat. Sparkes said Thomas’ accusations were politically motivated.
Pretty rich. The link at Fox News has a video of Sparkes being interviewed by a news crew, and while he’s calmly telling his side of the story, this Erica Thomas interrupts and starts aggressively pointing in his face and lecturing him, “You don’t get any kind of a spotlight, you don’t get anything at all, because you degraded me, you berated me.”
I’m sure she wouldn’t want him to be able to tell his side of the story, because it blows her’s to bits.
Erica Thomas: I can make unfounded accusations of racism against random people and they’re not allowed to have a platform to tell their side of the story because if I call someone a racist that means they’re a racist, period.
She then said, “You think you’re gonna get away with this? No. You’re going to jail.”
Good to know exactly what we’re dealing with when it comes to our cherished Public Servants: anyone who disrespects me goes to jail!
Is Erica Thomas a full-blown fascist, or just really, really stupid? Does it even matter?
So she “walked back” the main part of her story, which was that she was told to “go back where you came from.”
In reality she was just involved in a grocery store dispute with a random guy because she was in the express lane with too many items.
I don’t know about you guys but I still consider Erica Thomas a Victim of Institutional Racism™. We still live in a deeply racist country where a black woman isn’t even allowed to break the “ten items or less” rule at the grocery store.
Notice something interesting going on: the vicious left is no longer only trying to frame and sabotage public figures.
Who was this man that allegedly yelled at Erica Thomas? Was he a prominent politician or public figure?
No, he was just some random guy shopping at a supermarket.
They’re now coming after random average Americans.
You could be the next person who winds up on the news for a supposed act of racism.
We are now at a point where you can just randomly accuse some white (or white-looking, as in this case) person of racism and it becomes a national news story.
Because racism is so prevalent and pervasive in this country that any unfounded accusation of even the slightest bit of racist rhetoric becomes a national news story.
If racism was as widespread and regular as they say it is, why are the Democrats and their accomplices in the media desperate to invent Racist Stories out of thin air?
If what they say about America is true, they shouldn’t have to fabricate Racist Incidents. There would be plenty of real instances of racism to highlight.
Really makes you think. . .
So instead of going after right wing politicians in attempt to smear the right in general through guilt by association, the idea now is to feed into narratives about society at large, specifically the idea that minorities are extremely oppressed and mistreated on a regular basis.
For instance “white person did something mean to black person, thus it’s confirmed that America is racist/sexist/xenophobic, etc.”
That’s what this Erica Thomas story was. It was an attempt to smear white people writ large as racists.
No one is safe anymore.
A day or so after I published this post, an employee at the Publix where the confrontation between Erica Thomas and Eric Sparkes took place came forward and said that it was actually Thomas who told Sparkes to “go back where you came from”:
BREAKING: A Publix employee told police that it was Georgia Democrat State Rep. Erica Thomas who told Eric Sparkes to "Go back where you came from" https://t.co/jWVBd03ptD
It is so incredibly racist and bigoted and un-American to question an immigrant’s allegiance to this country. Immigrants are every bit as American–perhaps more–than you and I. Questioning an immigrant’s patriotism is beyond the pale. It must never be done. It is xenophobic and wrong.
In a letter addressed to Trump, Nadler cites a report in The Forward, an American Jewish news outlet, linking Gorka to a far-right group in Hungary, saying that the judiciary panel needs to “be assured that he did not enter this country under false pretenses.”
“If Sebastian Gorka is indeed a member of this organization, as high-ranking leaders of the organization claim he is, he would have been required to disclose this information on his immigration application, and on his application to be a naturalized U.S. citizen,” the letter reads.
“Failing to do so, he may have been withholding important material facts about his background from the United States, in violation of the law.
Gorka, a top counterterrorism adviser to Trump, was born in the United Kingdom in 1970 to Hungarian parents. He became a U.S. citizen in 2012. He fervently denied the allegations in The Forward’s story on Thursday.”
Where was the shrieking and gnashing of teeth when Democrat Jerry Nadler tried to Send Gorka Back? Where were the howls of RACISM and Xenophobia? Why was the media not irate that a politician would dare question the patriotism and allegiance of one of our treasured Immigrants, who are are all so pure and wonderful and bless us with their mere presence?
Because Gorka’s a Trump supporter. And he’s white.
The media–and their Conservative, Inc. lapdogs–only get upset when anyone questions the patriotism of America-hating, leftwing Somali Muslim immigrants like Ilhan Omar.
This gives me hope for the future. Despite the bombardment of politically correct multiculturalist propaganda, Americans still aren’t afraid to stand up for their country against invaders and subversives:
It gives me hope to see that not all Americans have been bullied into accepting the lie that we have to welcome and accept foreigners who don’t even try to hide the fact that they hate us.
This is a woman who has referred to 9/11 as “some people did something.”
Ilhan Omar has said that America is “not going to be the country of white people,” and we’re supposed to sit here and act like that’s not blatant racism and support for white genocide.
How come it’s racist to say America, a country that was consistently 87% white/13% black for two centuries, is a white country? It’s just a fact. But Ilhan Omar wants to change that fact. It doesn’t make you a bad person if you disagree strongly.
We are under no obligation to accept “refugees” who come here and want to implement a demographic replacement of the historical majority of the country.
If I went to her native Ethiopia and, after some time living there, I ran for political office and won and upon taking office I confidently pronounced that “this is not going to be the country of black people,” people would be rightfully pissed. They let me in, and I repay them by basically telling them it’s my country now, not theirs.
The fact that we didn’t send Ilhan Omar packing the moment she said that is extraordinary and shows just how conditioned Americans are to accepting foreigners who obviously hate this country and everything it represents.
But as last night’s Trump rally showed, not all of us believe the lies.
Outside of the fact that she went through a citizenship ceremony, where is the evidence that Ilhan Omar is an American? It should be obvious from her words and actions, but it’s not. In fact her words and actions indicate someone who hates America.
But she went through a citizenship ceremony so according to the Politically Correct cowards she’s Just As American As Anyone Else!
She is the first invader member of Congress and thankfully there’s still some people who see straight through it. They don’t buy this bullshit that says stepping on to America’s Magic Soil automatically makes anyone as American as Elvis Presley.
“Send her back” is the visceral reaction of patriotic Americans who instinctively recognize a traitor in their midst.
Oh shut up. Quit playing dumb.
You know exactly what this is: Ilhan Omar is not only unAmerican, she’s anti-American. This is way more than simply “saying something President Trump doesn’t like.” This goes way beyond mere disagreement.
This woman committed immigration fraud by marrying her brother in order to gain citizenship, then used that wrongfully-gotten citizenship to run for Congress, where she was able to win because her district is full of Somali Muslims just like her who simply voted for her in ethnic solidarity, and now she uses her ill-gotten political power to subvert and destroy America from within. And she has the tacit approval of leftist elites who hate America as much as she does, as well as cowed “conservative” media who through years of shaming and psychological abuse by the media and Democratic Politicians, have genuinely come to be as pro-immigrant as the Democrats despite not benefitting from it like the Democrats do.
This woman–who hates white people, flippantly dismisses 9-11, and committed immigration fraud to gain her citizenship here–does not belong in America.
I’m glad there’s still some Americans out there who aren’t afraid to say so.
I said a few weeks ago that I would be making a concerted effort to hold the American media accountable in cases where it has either directly or indirectly led to violence and bloodshed. This is one of those cases. Tacoma, Washington:
“Police inWashington statesay an armed man was shot and killed early Saturday after trying to attack a local Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE)detention center. The Seattle Times reported that the unidentified man appeared outside of the Northwest Detention Center in Tacoma with a rifle and threw incendiary devices at both the facility and nearby propane tanks, at one point setting a vehicle on fire.
Officers responded to the incident around 4 a.m. and called out to the man before shots were fired. It was not clear how many shots were fired or whether the man fired at police. The shooting took place hours after a rally in front of the detention center to protest plannedmass deportation raids around the country. The Tacoma facility, which is run by the Department of Homeland Security, holds migrants pending deportation proceedings.
The 69-year-old armed man killed by Washingtonstate police as he attacked a localImmigrationand Customs Enforcement detention center Saturday sent a manifesto to friends the day before the assault in which he wrote “I amAntifa,” and was being lionized by members of the leftwing group as a “martyr.”
The group Seattle Antifascist Action described assailant Willem Van Spronsen a “good friend and comrade” who “took a stand against the fascist detention center in Tacoma” and “became a martyr who gave his life to the struggle against fascism.”
These people watch too many movies and their lives are too boring, so they pretend they’re battling “fascists” in the streets and saving America from Tyrant Trump. Unfortunately for them they weren’t alive during World War II, and so they must play Make Believe and tilt at windmills in order to satisfy their envy of prior generations.
The worst part of it is, there is a great insidious enemy that is oppressing and immiserating untold millions not only here in America but all around the world, only it’s called the Globalist Uniparty and the so-called “Anti-Fascists” ironically happen to be its unwitting foot soldiers and enforcers.
But the main point here is that this man was radicalized and spurred to violence by the U.S. media and its reckless propaganda:
“GEO Group, which runs the 1,575-bed Northwest Detention Center, in an email to The Associated Press said baseless accusations about how detainees are treated at its facilities “have led to misplaced aggression and a dangerous environment for our employees, whose safety is our top priority.“
Wonder where all those “baseless accusations” leading to all that “misplaced aggression” are coming from?
The media, of course.
The media radicalized this guy to attack an immigration detention center with dangerous explosives, where he was ultimately shot and killed by police.
The media believes it can say anything, no matter how dishonest, reckless or incendiary, and not be responsible for the real-world consequences of its viewers who actually believe the media’s lurid claims.
Who could have ever predicted that the media telling Americans that ICE is running a network of concentration camps where it tortures illegal immigrants would compel someone out there to go attack an ICE detention center?
The media itself knows its content is all propaganda and sensation, but lots of people out there don’t. There are people out there who hang on the media’s every word and believe everything they see on cable news.
You can’t just have the hyperbole turned up to 11 every single day. “Trump is a fascist! Trump is a Literal Nazi™! ICE is running death camps! America 2019 has become Nazi Germany!!!!!!!!”
People out there actually believe this stuff.
And some of those people not only believe the propaganda, but act on it.
After all, if you truly believed ICE was maintaining Nazi-style concentration camps, wouldn’t you think it’s not only appropriate but imperative that you storm those ICE detention centers with guns and firebombs and try to liberate them?
Just a couple of weeks ago, Shaun King, aka the Fake Black Guy, aka Talcum-X, tweeted this:
And you’re surprised about what happened in Tacoma, Washington?
No one should be surprised that this happened, and no one should be surprised when it happens again.
