From Teens To Trump, Media Doxes The Right
Published : January 21, 2019
There is no care about the real issues at hand, be it security of American citizens or the furlough of federal employees. The only thing the media cares about is that everything is the president’s fault. In the past week, the media has twisted the narrative on topics from Catholic teenage boys to college football players to the ongoing Mueller investigation.
It started with President Trump taking the bull by the horns and making a “tough decision,” which was whether or not to feed the members of the Clemson Tigers football team, who visited the White House after winning the national championship. But really it was an easy decision for the president. Because of the furlough, there was no catering available, so President Trump used common sense and thought about what college students would enjoy eating: fast food. The only misstep was seen in the lack of Chick-fil-A available. Maybe next time.
But CNN took grave offense to the president’s actions. Erin Burnett and Joan Walsh, in usual CNN fake outrage fashion, went full crazy kale when the president joked to the football players that First Lady Melania Trump would serve some salads.
“That’s appalling,” Walsh said. “It seems to me that the president will not be happy until there is one single female Republican voter in the country. It’s incredibly sexist.”
Salads are sexist, and it is all Trump’s fault. To top it off, the Washington Post spent time and column inches detailing the layout of the food on the table, ran a statistical analysis, and concluded that Trump was clearly in the wrong for giving those young men food.
It is clearly Burgergate 2019. The FBI could investigate this, but they are busy with Robert Mueller’s investigation. And in a rare instance, Mueller’s office made comment on Friday, Jan. 18, about the ongoing investigation. However, it was only to smack down the media for another instance of trying to blame Trump for something without evidence. BuzzFeed made claims that Trump’s former lawyer, Michael Cohen, was ordered by the president to lie to Congress.
All the media buzzed right on over to it, calling for Trump’s impeachment louder than they already had been doing. It was 179 times louder, to be exact.
But Mueller’s team refuted it. “BuzzFeed’s description of specific statements to the Special Counsel’s Office, and characterization of documents and testimony obtained by this office, regarding Michael Cohen’s Congressional testimony are not accurate,” Peter Carr, a spokesman for Mueller’s office said in a statement.
With even more egg on its face than usual, the mainstream news was quick to turn the narrative from the BuzzFeed blunder to some teenage boys from Covington Catholic High School in Kentucky and an elderly Native American man. In a shortened video that went viral on Saturday, Jan. 19, it appears that a male, Caucasian teen, while wearing a MAGA hat, was smirking at the elderly man while he was beating on a drum and standing near the Lincoln Memorial.
Seeking redemption for the BuzzFeed blunder, the media pounced. CNN released a tweet stating, “Video shows a crowd of teenagers wearing ‘Make America Great Again’ hats taunting a Native American elder after Friday’s Indigenous People March at the Lincoln Memorial.”
But, per usual, the media outlets that joined CNN, failed to fact check. Instead, they selected just a short bit of video that went viral rather than finding the entire story, including the statement from Nick Sandmann, who has received death threats as a result. Go watch for yourselves all of the videos, not just the one that shows the narrative the media wants you to see. Because there are many trying to destroy the lives of these young men so as to fit the narrative they so desire. (See: Kathy Griffin seeking to dox the students.)
There is a lot happening every single day, but no matter what it may be, it will somehow be brought back to President Trump. More than ever, make sure you take time to read, watch, and learn about the so-called news from multiple sources. Because right now it is about narrative, not news.
