Did Anyone Else Notice The Contrast Between How Smollett Hoax and The Antifa Terrorist Attack Were Covered?

Written by Wes Walker on July 17, 2019

One guy stages a ‘racist’ assault and it’s national news for a month, so why the crickets when a Leftist anarchist tries to trigger a ‘revolution’.

Remember Jussie Smollett? That got endless media attention. But a man dies in a violent standoff with police and suddenly nobody cares? Why are they so suspiciously silent?

Let’s compare how the two were handled, shall we?

Just a couple of months ago, Smollet was all anyone could talk about. Then, once his story became harmful to the narrative, and the national press lost interest, we all forgot about him.

But in that Bright flaming moment where he was all anyone could talk about, do you remember HOW everyone framed it?

It’s proof that we are a ‘racist’ nation. Proof that Republicans are bigots who hate minorities and gays. It’s probably Trump’s fault… and most certainly the MAGA crowd are guilty as charged.

All the old, long-since debunked claims of racism from the past bubbled back to the surface.

The only story that could even come close to touching it was the Covington kids story.

Between the two of them, the charged, Republicans-are-bigots language dragged on for what… a month? Here’s a recap. (Notice how not EVERYONE bought into that official narrative… but the ‘new media’ isn’t ‘credible news’, eh?)

For anyone who’s forgotten already, these stories give the quick contours of the Smollett hoax:

Compare that to one example among many after the self-proclaimed Antifa Anarchist mailed out his Manifesto, planned to go down fighting, and said he regretted that he would not live to see the rest of the revolution.

He was HOPING FOR a large-scale violent uprising.

He invoked ALL the same buzzwords that AOC and her little ‘squad’ like to use about concentration camps, kids in cages, etcetera (it should make any honest journalist wonder ‘who is borrowing ideas from whom’) and that rhetoric was the ‘justification’ for his violent attack.

And what did the networks say about it? Practically nothing.

As one example among many, CNN had the acting ICE director on at least two shows in 24 hours. Jake Tapper on Sunday (where he asked about Trump tweets, NOT cited in their full context) and Alisyn Camerota’s show where the topic she spent 7 of 10 minutes on was — you guessed it — Trump tweets.

She made no mention of the would-be bomber attacking a federal building in Antifa’s name. And she made no mention of the other attack in which the Stars and Stripes were pulled down from a flagpole at an ICE detention center and replaced with a Mexican flag, or where a flag celebrating law enforcement was pulled down, spray-painted with ‘Abolish ICE’ and rehung upside down.

Neither of those was as relevant to Alisyn as her chief aim of trying to get a ‘gotcha’ quote from the acting ICE Director calling Trump racist from a partial tweet quoted without context.

This pattern is hardly new.

They drop any talk about attacks either by leftist or against right-of-center targets pretty quickly too. A man motivated by opposition to their plans for Obamacare tried to assassinate elected Republicans. Rand Paul was hospitalized after being attacked by a neighbor while mowing his lawn. Crickets.

The Smollett Feeding frenzy was pretty similar to the media feeding frenzy over Covington… which ended with those who defamed them facing enormous lawsuits.

Well, you get the picture.

We’ve all seen the dishonest games the left have played with the power they’re entrusted with, they’re obviously unworthy of that trust.

But what about 2020? Could a moral person pull a lever for Trump with their integrity intact? Would Jesus himself vote for Trump? We’re glad you asked. There’s a brand new book that covers precisely that question:

“Would Jesus Vote For Trump?” by Doug Giles and Brandon Vallorani.

Would Jesus ever choose someone, with a less than stellar past, to be a leader? Would Jesus be cool with how Trump blasts CNN, The Left, and his feckless ‘compadres’ on The Right? What about Health Care? Would the Great Physician give Trump’s opposition to ObamaCare the ‘two thumbs up?’ Find out in this BEST-SELLER!
