Culture Wars, MSM Bias ← Previous post Next post → Comments JTC Jan 22 2019 at 12:23 am Not really retracting…NBC Nightly still casts blame on the boys, and a long leading interview by CNN with the poser/drummer/valor thief defends the actual racist instigators and antagonists as just getting their free speech on while the gang of young strong men were full of hate and very threatening. Again I will ask, if the screaming racist thug protestors had been “White Nationalists” and the Catholic kidswith MAGA hats were instead a group of pussy hatters…what would be the narrative now? DCE Jan 22 2019 at 12:56 am ABC News stayed with their ‘hatchet job’ story line, blaming the kids and holding the Native American elder blameless. What do you expect from the House of Stephanopoulus? Tessa Jan 25 2019 at 10:54 am A voice of reason and sanity. THANK You. Tessa Jan 25 2019 at 10:56 am @JTC Pamela Jan 22 2019 at 12:24 am There was a time that children were off limits. cmblake6 Jan 22 2019 at 12:26 am Remember who/what you’re talking about here. RegT Jan 24 2019 at 9:30 am Indeed. It is the Left who has been trying for so many years to get pedophilia normalized, removed from the DSM as a disorder. Itis another reason why the Left loves it muslims – islam encourages pedophilia, both little girls, who can be raped at nine years old if they are “married” and little boys during “bacha bazi – “boy-play”. Not only that, but little girls and boys and can be sodomized at any age, including as infants. The former religious leader of Iran, the Ayatollah Khomeini, wrote a book on proper muslim conduct, according to the qur’an. In this two-volume book (the “Tahrirolvasyleh”, in Farsi) he states, “A man can have sexual pleasure from a child as young as a baby. However, he should not penetrate vaginally, but sodomising the child is acceptable.” Proving that pedophilia is actually encouraged, “It is better for a girl to marry at such a time when she would begin menstruation at her husband’s house, rather than her father’s home. Any father marrying his daughter so young will have a permanent place in heaven.” Anyone want to place a bet on whether or not Khomeini partook of these “pleasures”? kadaka Jan 22 2019 at 1:32 am Melania works hard at keeping Barron away from the cameras after he was lambasted for wearing a T-shirt. NotYetInACamp Jan 22 2019 at 1:40 am Child blood lately is $6-8000 a pint in The Los Angeles area I heard Doesn’t the Queen use that?? Also a rumor. Now deceased BBC long time BBC icon child Television “star” Saville is said to have been child procurer to the elite and royalty in the UK. bill, Hillary, and many others used to take Epstein’s Lolita Express to his child rape island. Mueller supposedly to have blackmailed Epstein into a allowing FBI(?) taping of the perverts to get leverage like J Edgar had on almost everyone in Washington DC. Democrats as an organization appears to support child raping and rape that is Sharia compliant. I have complained to Congress members about the drugs, murders, child rape and sexual traffic by the border invaders and the support structure around them since the 1980’s. It is easy for Democrats to do what the right avoids as immoral and wrong and just not polite.Remember whe4n JFK nailing Marily Monro when wifey was away was hidden by the Secret Service and all of the press from everyone else not ‘cool.’ I should get some new live sources. I have too many memories of evil things from press, myself, and people reports over the years. The Democrats would win by, as Hillary’s alleged one time squeeze said in his Rules for Radicals book, BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY. Democrats stomping verbally on children who escaped their mass brainwashing that some many are subjected to as children due to the Marxist critical theory long march through education destruction of the schools and of children’s minds would be considered fair game for any hostile acts. kadaka Jan 22 2019 at 2:09 am We know what Progressives do. Adults throw dollars at 11-year-old drag kid who performed at gay nightclub The boy, known as ‘Desmond is Amazing,’ danced at the 3 Dollar Bill in Brooklyn, New York … Desmond’s parents have not only supported their son’s interest in dressing in drag, but they have also promoted his choices by allowing him to be featured in magazines and on websites, social media, and national television. … RuPaul has reportedly called Desmond the “the future of America,” according to CNBC. RegT Jan 24 2019 at 9:35 am Whatever happened to “contributing to the delinquency of a minor”? DCE Jan 22 2019 at 11:11 am That ended when Sarah Palin came on the scene. The Left unminded itself when she was named McCain’s running mate and the first thing the MSM-DNC did was go after her kids. Now it’s in the MSM’s playbook. Henry Jan 24 2019 at 1:41 am There was a time when pizza was just a tasty treat. kadaka Jan 22 2019 at 12:25 am CBS Nightly News actually did a balanced piece tonight, presenting both the online frenzy and what really happened that has led to many apologies and some personal retractions. So the NY Daily News has picked up the racist beater stick and shown footage of the high school’s basketball games from earlier years of students and doing a blackout (all dressed in black, like Penn State football does whiteouts) and declared it was blackface and sufficient evidence of rampant racism at the school. It was REAL RACISM from those MAGA kids at the memorial, they knew it all along, stop lying with the clear video evidence that shows otherwise! People who know sports and what a blackout is have complained on Twitter. One guy who was at that game says it was seven years ago, meaning the memorial kids weren’t even there. https://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/ny-sports-covington-nathan-phillips-nick-sandmann-20190121-story.html Deplorable B Woodman Jan 22 2019 at 12:41 am I am SO glad I live in a peaceful quiet neighborhood and city, otherwise I would constantly be in jail for cudgeling these Libtard thugs. Actions should have consequences. The more stoopid the action, the more painful the consequence. (I wonder if I can get a Letter of Marque from President Trump giving me carte blanche on these Libtard assholes?) Kafiroon Jan 22 2019 at 1:00 am Obviously the how many hours before and after the Catholic teenagers presence were the “Black Hebrews” insulting and condemning everyone and anyone has none of the perpetually offended, offended. JTC Jan 22 2019 at 1:00 am Shouldn’t those kids get a meet ‘n greet at the WH? WayneM Jan 22 2019 at 1:15 am That would be amazing!! I hope DJT invites them!! GWB Jan 22 2019 at 7:19 am And feeds ’em, Chick-Fil-A! JTC Jan 22 2019 at 12:17 pm GWB, perfect! And it just might happen, and should. https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/trump-defends-covington-students-calls-media-coverage-%E2%80%98evil%E2%80%99/ar-BBSAl6e?li=BBnb7Kz Meanwhile the fake injun/’nam poser “doesn’t want to meet with the students” and they had to cancel school due to violent threats, and the media fails to disavow, continues to push their original script, and NONE of them have called for criminal hate crime charges against the POS black racists who are the cause of all of this shit…have you seen them interview the loudmouth who couldn’t shut up when he was on camera? The mediots are afraid to run him live now, protecting both the thugs and their own narrative. WayneM Jan 22 2019 at 11:21 pm Ask and you shall receive… https://www.dailywire.com/news/42522/breaking-covington-kids-going-white-house-hank-berrien JTC Jan 23 2019 at 1:09 am Hell yeah! Now somebody call Chik Fil A to send a load of Chikin sammiches to be ready for them there. Calvin Jan 22 2019 at 1:05 am I wonder if Harvard will spend some time with Nick Sandmann like they did David Hogg? PaulS Jan 22 2019 at 9:29 am Not anymore… The kids are going to have great standing for some lawsuits most likely. CJB Jan 22 2019 at 2:09 pm I am hoping what these young folks went through will have created Conservative Adults out of them. Amazing, how that young man just stood his ground. WayneM Jan 22 2019 at 1:24 am I’ve heard that the “verified” leftists who were calling for blood on Twatter are purging their accounts of any mention of Nathaniel Phillips and/or students of Covington Catholic High… With any amount of luck, the kids get one of the lawyers who’ve offered their services pro-bono and teach the leftists a lesson… Given how there was literally nil fact-checking by the lamestream media, maybe those lawyers can go after them too? JTC Jan 22 2019 at 1:25 am I knew I recognized the boy…that’s Joey Logano! https://www.nbcconnecticut.com/news/local/NASCARs-Joey-Logano-Heading-Home-to-Connecticut-275228911.html JTC Jan 22 2019 at 1:30 am And “Joey” and his mates are still being threatened… https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/covington-catholic-school-center-d-c-march-video-facing-threats-n961056 Old Codger Jan 22 2019 at 10:30 am I’m not sure who you’re referring to as “the boy” but the young man whom the valor thief was trying to incite has a last name of “Sandman”. You should look up his response to the media’s lies. JTC Jan 22 2019 at 12:46 pm I’ve read his responses from the beginning, very articulate, measured, and controlled. He’s still a kid though which is what makes the threats and the “evil media” attacks that Trump says was perpetrated on him all the worse. Nothing wrong with being a boy, I wish I was one again, only not having to deal with what these kids will…good to know that some of them are still getting effective love and moral direction from their parents…in spite of their other “mentors”…their school, church, and city blindly joining the attack against their own to save their own pansy virtue signaling asses. One of the things the fake injun ‘nam poser said in his extensive rambling (as coached by his interviewers) was, “where are these young people’s parents or chaperones?” Answer, doing their damn job and doing it pretty well it seems. Too bad all of these professional protestors, attention whores, and agents of destruction don’t know what a job even is. But of course that represents what the brave new globalist slaver regime and its media accolytes think they desire, if they can just get these damn Trumpists and their guns out of the way. And now there’s more of them, smart young Christian males to keep them from realizing their nirvana. Our young people are the future of the Republic if there can remain one. I and most here won’t be around to see if they succeed but we can do the best we can to keep their options open in the meantime. There is still reason for optimism that our boys will become the (white-ish heterosexual faithful) men that are necessary to succeed. T Paul Jan 22 2019 at 3:19 am Here’s a Democrat quote for the liberals who insist on going after the Covington minors: “Have you no decency? At long last… have you no shame?” May the MSM choke on it. Daniel Allen Butler Jan 22 2019 at 3:29 am And concurrently there is the CNN- originated fiasco of Areva Martin accusing David Webb of possessing and exercising “white privilege,” then throwing her staff under the bus in an effort to excuse her ignorance when Webb pointed out that is, in fact, black…. Daniel Allen Butler Jan 22 2019 at 3:30 am Should read “that *he* is, in fact, black….” PaulS Jan 22 2019 at 9:34 am Funniest clip of White privilege shaming Evah! It’s all ridiculous, but that one was double dumb, even the Odiots can’t not see it. Fronk! Jan 22 2019 at 4:32 am The incident at the Lincoln Memorial on Friday afternoon has made it abundantly clear just how far our political opposition is willing to go in order to demonize their victims, as well as just how dangerous they are. The time has come to hit back, and hit back very hard. It’s the only thing these pathetic bullies understand… Fronk! Jan 22 2019 at 5:03 am BTW: If Nathan Phillips, the so-called “Marine Viet Nam Veteran” is in fact, 64 years old, that means he turned 18 sometime in 1972 (or possibly in January of 1973.) The Viet Nam War ended in January of 1973. How could he have completed basic training, undergone deployment and served two tours of duty (six months each, I believe) within that brief time frame? Additionally, the last Marine combat units left Vietnam in 1971. Busted!! GWB Jan 22 2019 at 7:22 am His phrasing was “Vietnam Time Vet”, iirc. He knows better than to *actually* claim to have done a tour. (Though he might have gone that far in the past.) Someone (don’t recall who) has a FOIA in already for his service record. Dr. Mauser Jan 22 2019 at 11:16 pm They got it. Turns out the closest that guy got to Vietnam was Lincoln Nebraska. And he didn’t start until after we were out of Vietnam anyway. Redleg Jan 22 2019 at 7:22 am Probably like Richard Blumenthal, Democrat Politician, did. Oh, did I say I served in Vietnam? I meant that I served during Vietnam. Bill G Jan 22 2019 at 7:31 am The peace treaty was signed in January of 1973; the last troops left in March of that year. He could be, like I am, considered a Vietnam Era Veteran which is a creation of our congresscritters. For my part, I always make the difference clear. Wotan Jan 22 2019 at 6:11 am Fronk! – While facts are either irrelevant or “outdated” to SJWs and the Mean Girl Media types, they help center and ground the Ones wearing Big Boy pants. Many thanks for laying out the timeline and then ….. *listening …. waiting for it..* “Dropping the Mic!” Halley Jan 22 2019 at 6:34 am Are there any “truth in advertising” laws still in effect? If you advertise your business as an objective “news agency” yet 97.4% of what you do is obvious and egregious propaganda and cover-ups for a certain anti-American political party, is this not illegal? Not a lawyer – just asking. eon Jan 22 2019 at 7:51 am Technically, truth in advertising laws only apply to the advertising of goods or services. In this, U.S. law generally follows British law. As Dorothy L. Sayers (who worked in advertising in England) once put it, if you say your pear juice is made “from only” pears, there must be nothing but pear juice in it or the statement is legally actionable. If you just say “from” pears, the assumption is that it’s made mostly from pears. But if you call it a “pear drink made with pears”, you can use a pound of pears to a peck of turnips and the law cannot touch you. There are no such laws for news. Period. News is, literally, whatever those printing or broadcasting it say it is. The nearest thing to laws about “truth” in news is the right of an individual, group or business to sue a news agency for libel, slander, and/or defamation of character. Which is a civil law action, not a criminal law action. The model is Reynolds v. Pegler, 223 F.2d 429 (2nd Cir. 1955); https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reynolds_v._Pegler But even that was purely a financial settlement. So no, there really is no law that prevents the “news media” from lying. and never has been. And most of the time, the best you can hope for after a front-page banner headline lie, is a one-column, two-paragraph retraction at the bottom of page 40. Right under the “lost dog” items. BTW; I am actually trained in criminal law and civil law, both, due to my former profession. I’m a retired “crime lab geek”, and yes, we had to know this stuff. (Yes, the various “CSI” TV shows often get it wrong.) clear ether eon Alan Jan 22 2019 at 11:39 am Seems to me what the press and social media were doing to these kids is awfully close to riot – in how it works & in how it damages the victims. Probably requires an adjustment to law, to include media and pundits communicating electronically as people who can be accountable for incitement to riot… But I’d sure like to see it! (Their best defense, then, would be “we waited, gathered evidence, and presented it as news, independently of all others” — which is exactly what would prevent internet mobbing.) JTC Jan 22 2019 at 2:11 pm My last pawn/gun shop was formed with my help by the retired (full DROP program benefits after 25 years beginning at age 20) Dep. Sgt. who started at the SO as a jailer and as my regular customer/acquaintance in ’86. Tom was smart and aggressive, he joined CSI and was forever attending advanced training schools and seminars which culminated in him being senior in the department, but he was passed over to be its head as punishment for his support of a new sheriff’s (first female elected sheriff in Fla and the only Dem who won that year in the whole county…blind feminism is not new…) opponent. Anyway, he took his retirement and had a pocketful of money and told me that hanging around my shops all those years made him want to start a kind of cop-themed gun and pawn store and asked for my help. He was a smart guy if slightly too leo-oriented and his timing put him in the middle of the Zero’s gun boom so he did well. After about five years that female sheriff’s patronage had caused some serious gaps in her crime scene squad expertise and offered Tom a pretty sweet deal to come back as head of the unit. Since he did miss it anyway and her offer was pretty rich he asked me to buy him out for a good cash deal and take his shop over either to find another retired cop to train and set up in the biz or to liquidate it over time, which after a year of the right situation not presenting itself is what I did, as I spent enough years behind the counter and it’s not really a business that lends itself to management and operation by employees. Anyway, that’s long-form to say Tommy is a friend, smart and very capable at what he does and also at being a businessman, especially with his interest and knowledge of firearms. The shows are of course a joke and I got a lot of real-world exposure to the truth of the job…a job that I could/would never do. But. I wouldn’t want him deciphering the intentionally obscure, unfair and opaque labyrinth of law for me…he is NAL. And I’m not only NAL, but also mostly fucking hate ’em. But if I need one which I occasionally do, I’ll get me one with a JD cert on the wall with his ESQ on it. eon Jan 22 2019 at 4:18 pm Anybody who doesn’t have a real lawyer when he goes into court is a damned fool. That’s like having open heart surgery performed by somebody who played a doctor on TV. (I’m looking at YOU, George Clooney.) The worst type is the one who represents himself. Benjamin Franklin was right when he said that sort had a both an idiot for a lawyer and a fool for a client. I know the law pretty well. That’s why I have a lawyer, just in case. cheers eon JTC Jan 22 2019 at 5:51 pm “I know the law pretty well. That’s why I have a lawyer…” That’s pretty good right there eon. But how pathetic is that? And it’s not just court; of the few dozen significant property deals I’ve done over the years for instance, most could be very simply and logically structured so that any intelligent businessman could draw them up and execute them. But of course the folks whose job it is to actually construct these absurdly complicated and redundant documents are the same ones who will then be needed to decipher them at $150 hr. Job security…I guess that and the ambo chasers who scam zillions from (our) insurance, skim half and use the rest to perpetuate the whole free money meme among the slaves does explain my general animosity. That was not intended to be critical at all btw…it is excellent to know your shit so as to know when you need help with your shit and also that the help you get knows his shit too and doesn’t try to hustle you out of your shit himself. 🙂 Bill G Jan 22 2019 at 7:39 am They were wearing MAGA hats, or with others wearing MAGA hats. That’s all that is needed today for the left’s hatefests to start. One semi-retraction I read acknowledged the boys didn’t perform the vile acts they were accused of, but went on to, essentially, justify much of the hate because of those evil hats and what he feels they automatically prove the wearer stands for. I wonder how many Che t-shirts and other stuff these haters have/have had. FC in NH Jan 22 2019 at 9:01 am They were a leftist’s jackpot. White, male, Catholic, pro-life, conservative (apparently), Trump supporters, from a private school (i.e., privileged), from a red, flyover, hillbilly state, who were attacking an elderly, Vietnam Marine veteran Native American. They were only missing the victim being disabled, gay, female and Muslim (though that latter would complicate the gay and Native American part.) A positive cornucopia of deplorableness. Much, much too good to question, though the conservative side should have been more judicious. But then NR and all the others seem to always be seeking the approval of the Left, for reasons that completely elude me. Delilah T. Jan 22 2019 at 8:25 am Phillips is a self-made attention whore. He’s done this before. He refers to his service as Vietnam times and marine times (yes, lower case “m”) which casts some doubt on his claims of service. Marines, whether career or short-term, refer to themselves as Marines, not any other way. My guess is he’s looking for money for his “bio” (the oh, pity me story) so always follow that trail. Going after a bunch of kids who were waiting for their bus is beyond my comprehension, but Phillips is an opportunist, and the black radicals who were there made it even nastier. Stay tuned. It ain’t over yet. Fronk! Jan 22 2019 at 9:40 am Sigh… WayneM Jan 22 2019 at 9:36 pm When interviewed by Vogue after the Standing Rock protest, Phillips claimed he was a “recon ranger” and, again, used the “Vietnam times” expression. Here’s a good collection on the subject… https://100percentfedup.com/holy-fraud-did-nathaniel-phillips-lie-about-being-a-marine-recon-ranger-in-vietnam/ WayneM Jan 22 2019 at 11:26 pm https://youtu.be/CIXIzvyAlLA Old Codger Jan 22 2019 at 10:34 am Interesting little piece here of an alleged “journalist” who formerly was awarded CNN’s Journalist of the Year award who was outed as a fiction writer. https://tinyurl.com/yac76njk Old Codger Jan 22 2019 at 10:44 am I found a link to Nick Sandmann’s (the young man confronted by the valor-thief) statement in response to the false media charges. https://www.waynedupree.com/covington-student-releases-statement/?source=right-rail-trending merlyn d. eckles Jan 22 2019 at 1:04 pm The MSM should do a background check on the indian activist at the Washington, D.C. mix up…. He was born in 1955 and claims two tours in V.N. with the USMC, whose tours are normally 12 to 13 months long. With time attending boot camp and advanced training, he would have had to enlist at the age of 15, kadaka Jan 22 2019 at 1:39 pm On this frigid bone-chilling day, let us pause for prayers for those in the maldeveloped lands who must wait for puffs of wind on turbines and glints of sunlight on panels before they are permitted to use scarce electricity for minimal heating, per governmental decree based on common propagandized fear that our planet could not survive being not quite as warm as it has been in the very-recent geological past. May this never come to pass here, so help us all. Amen. Lyle Jan 22 2019 at 2:53 pm This is the “dialectic method”, as the Marxists put it, on full display, the attackers and defenders being largely on the same side. Trump; national socialist The papacy; world’s oldest operating authoritarian power, advocate of global coercive redistribution, says private property is “immoral”, promoter of the anthropogenic global warming hoax, supports the erasure of borders. The lying media; characteristics of all of the above. Step right up, Folks, take your pick, and defend it to the death! JTC Jan 22 2019 at 6:19 pm Defense doesn’t have to be fatal, though it can be better than some alternatives. There’s also fact, which is its own defense, and there can be some agreement and some not. Trump; national socialist. Pretty subjective statement. Please elaborate. The papacy; well you didn’t go near far enough with that. These boys’ catholic school immediately threatening them with expulsion, their diocese expressing outrage at these evil punks, and the mayor disavowing them from their hometown. That has nothing to do with these boys’ faith or Christianity though, they have proven theirs but were abandoned by the “church”…and the latter is irrelevant to the former. The lying media; not only the characteristics of all of the above, they ARE all of the above. So yeah, really just the Trump thing. He’s an odd dude with some strange methods, but I guess I just don’t know exactly what is meant in this context by “national socialist” or what the negative of that is. John Jan 22 2019 at 3:43 pm And all this happened because some high school kids were told to wait for the bus on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. I wonder what kind of tempest-in-a-teapot will come from Meuller’s exoneration of Trump? interventor Jan 22 2019 at 9:47 pm When Mueller exonerated Trump, I fully expect to see the left to charge that Mueller is a Russian agent. Pamela Jan 22 2019 at 5:34 pm Do you think their collective forked tongues are pierced and tattooed. Maybe be nose rings for being led around like cattle… JTC Jan 22 2019 at 10:05 pm Turns out, it’s all the fault of all y’all big meanies picking on the poor little media for just trying to do their job… https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/a-viral-story-spread-the-mainstream-media-rushed-to-keep-up-the-trump-internet-pounced/ar-BBSBCLK?li=BBnb7Kz …which of course they still haven’t done yet because they are deathly afraid of the truth of the real evil and racism in the whole affair, and calling a spade a spade. markm Jan 23 2019 at 12:14 pm Congress defined a “Vietnam Era Veteran” as anyone who served between 1964 and 1975, except for those with dishonorable discharges. Less than half of them served in Vietnam, and far fewer were in combat. So a man born in 1955 could easily have been a Vietnam Era Veteran even if he enlisted after the troops were pulled out and never got closer than Nebraska. And that gives activists like Phillips lots of room to be misleading while not actually lying.
