Liberal Press Still Lying And Culpable In The Anti-Trump Violence
The lying, liberal, biased press, the same people who badly and intentionally missed the American public’s sentiment in the recent presidential election, who failed to report the violent and criminal acts of union thugs who attacked Donald Trump supporters at the command of Hillary and the DNC, are still lying and not reporting the news, and instead continue to encourage violence and rioting by young anti-Trump protesters. If there were violent protests against Obama or Hillary the press would be red in the face insisting that they stop and behave maturely. But since it’s Trump that is being abused they have no problem with this “youthful exuberance” and actually enjoy reporting on it.
But doesn’t the press have a responsibility to encourage good citizenship and responsible behavior by all citizens, especially with young people who are still learning how to act in public? Evidently our friends in the press don’t believe that they have any such a responsibility, because they are encouraging the rioting and siding with the rioters by simultaneously declaring that the world is coming to an end because of the presidency of Donald Trump.
The press happily reported Barack Obama’s declaration that “I won” the vote in 2008 and his opinion that “elections have consequences” which he thought gave him the right to disobey the constitution and the written laws of the nation and issue destructive orders in line with his promise to “fundamentally transform America”, and when he did succeed in making America a failing place none of us had ever seen before, the press reveled at his cleverness.
But Donald Trump had better never say “I won” or indicate that he has leeway to act because “elections have consequences”, because these statements only work one way: in a left-wise direction in which the political left gets to set its own agenda and move swiftly to implement its desired changes, but when the political right wins elections they must proceed cautiously and slowly and not make any waves that the leftist press is not in favor of.
The press would be completely justified in giving some leeway to the anti-Trump rioters and their tendency to be violent, if it would remind its readers and viewers that the Hillary Clinton campaign set the negative example for the youth of America by hiring unions to beat Trump supporters and fire-bomb a Trump headquarters office in North Carolina. And don’t forget the rigging of the Democrat presidential nomination process that assured Hillary would win no matter how many Sanders supporters there were, nor how enthusiastic those supporters were. Someone had better shake you and wake you up if you think the press will ever report and condemn violence from a Democrat candidate or her followers.
I don’t expect the press to do a complete about-face and begin writing balanced articles telling the truth about both parties, because that would be a break with tradition for the liberal press. But when people’s lives and property are at risk the press could at least tell the rioters that what they are doing is wrong and that they need to express themselves in a peaceful way, not like professional Democrats behave.
Donald Trump won the presidential election fair and square, and the left had better get used to it because four years of a president you despise is a long time to fume, and those of us who are not Obama fans can vouch for that fact (and no one I know did anything violent to oppose Obama).
