There is no level to which our corrupt political media won’t stoop to destroy anyone who is a threat to the Democrat Party. This includes outright lying about rank-and-file civilians — everyday people who attend various political events. I’m not talking about biased reporting here. I am talking about the political media being caught red-handed straight-up lying.
Smearing Republican events as Klan rallies is a classic left-wing tactic. The media’s goal is obvious: to make right-of-center types fit the media’s desired caricature. With Trump on the ascendancy and refusing to play by the media’s rules, this Playbook has returned.
As Breitbart News reports earlier this week, the DC Media is either directly or indirectly collaborating with Black Lives Matter protesters to disrupt Trump’s campaign events. In order to portray Trump as Hitler and his supporters as Nazis, a deal between the media and leftwing activists has been reached: You disrupt the events and we’ll cover the melee in a way that damages Trump politically.
In what I’m sure is just a wild coincidence, just one day after the New York Times described Trump’s supporters as “goose-steppers,” wouldn’t you know it — the media just happened to be right there when a Trump supporter (who was probably a left-wing plant) yelled “Sig Heil!” at a Black Lives Matter protester.
If that sounds a little too neat to you — a little too perfect, it should. Based on the political media’s sordid, lying history, you have every right to be suspicious. Because on these five occasions the very same media that is reporting the “Sieg Heil!” was caught bald-face lying about “dangerous” conservative crowds.
- Washington Post Lies About a Heritage Foundation Event
“Are you an American?” Gabriel demanded of Ahmed, after accusing her of taking “the limelight” and before informing her that her “political correctness” belongs “in the garbage.”
“Where are the other [Muslims] speaking out?” Ahmed was asked. This drew an extended standing ovation from the nearly 150 people in the room, complete with cheers.
The panel’s moderator, conservative radio host Chris Plante, grinned and joined in the assault. “Can you tell me who the head of the Muslim peace movement is?” he demanded of Ahmed.
[A]s the video proves, that’s not at all what happened. The first person who spoke was Frank Gaffney, who not only thanks her for the question but seems to agree with her. “I can say safely that there isn’t anyone on this panel who believes that all Muslims are the problem,” he says softly, before adding, “I certainly don’t.”
Moreover, Brigitte Gabriel, the woman [The Washington Post] accuses of “pouncing,” did not pounce. Her first words, which [The Post] chose not to share with his readers, were, “Great question.” Gabriel then assures the woman that no one on the panel was talking about Muslims or Islam. The panel is about what our government is doing with respect to Benghazi.
- Palin Supporter Screams ‘Kill Him!” About Barack Obama
At Palin rally, reporter hears threat to Obama: ‘Kill him!’
The Scranton Times-Tribune reported that someone in the crowd shouted “kill him” after the mention of Obama’s name during a rally Tuesday for Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin in Scranton, Pennsylvania.
News organizations including ABC, The Associated Press, The Washington Monthly and MSNBC’s Countdown with Keith Olbermann reported the claim, with most attributing the allegations to the Times-Tribune story. …
[Secret Service] Agent Bill Slavoski said he was in the audience, along with an undisclosed number of additional secret service agents and other law enforcement officers and not one heard the comment.
“I was baffled,” he said after reading the report in Wednesday’s Times-Tribune.
He said the agency conducted an investigation Wednesday, after seeing the story, and could not find one person to corroborate the allegation other than Singleton.
- NBC’s Racist Tea Partier Carries Firearm
On Tuesday, MSNBC’s Contessa Brewer fretted over health care reform protesters legally carrying guns: “A man at a pro-health care reform rally…wore a semiautomatic assault rifle on his shoulder and a pistol on his hip….there are questions about whether this has racial overtones….white people showing up with guns.” Brewer failed to mention the man she described was black.
Not only did Brewer, Ratigan, and Toure fail to point out the fact that the gun-toting protester that sparked the discussion was black, but the video footage shown of that protester was so edited, that it was impossible to see that he was black. The man appeared at a health care rally outside of President Obama’s speech to the Veterans of Foreign Wars in Phoenix, Arizona.
- Tea Party Hurled N-Word at Black Congressmen
Don’t forget that the big story occupying the news cycle the weekend of March 20, 2010 was that racist Tea Party protesters in Washington DC yelled the “N-Word” at civil rights icon Rep. John Lewis (D-GA)22%
as he walked across the mall to the capitol building that sunny afternoon. The story led all the cable shows, the Sunday shows and was the main lede in every print column about the historic events that weekend.
The media repeated the lie without ever asking a single question of the dubious man who made the audacious claim, Rep., Rep. Andre Carson.
Only one man dared to question the bogus tale, Andrew Breitbart. He offered $10,000 to the United Negro College Fund for any evidence of the slander. He upped it to $100,000. Nothing. … Andrew didn’t let it go. He found four individual videos that proved Carson’s tale was a lie. The media ignored it. They still do. More here.
- Sandy Hook Dad ‘Heckled’
Tuesday morning, many in the media went all in with a sanctimonious attack against gun-rights supporters, whom they accused of heckling Neil Heslin, the parent of a six-year-old boy murdered in the Sandy Hook massacre.
If you look at the full, unedited tape (which was first obtained by Twitchy), you’ll see that after 15 minutes of the audience remaining respectfully silent as Mr. Heslin spoke out against assault weapons, he then turns to ask the audience a direct question:
I ask if there’s anybody in this room that can give me one reason or challenge this question … why anybody in this room needs to have one of these assault-style weapons or military weapons or high-capacity clips.
Mr. Heslin then pauses waiting for someone in the audience to answer. His question is respectfully asked but no one says a word.
Then Mr. Heslin says:
Not one person can answer that question.
And it’s only then that a few people do answer the question, and do so respectfully.

*BONUS* 6. Kenneth Gladney Beaten By Obama’s SEIU Thugs:
After a health care town hall meeting in August, Kenneth Gladney was beaten, kicked and called racist names by Rep. Russ Carnahan’s SEIU supporters. Gladney was hospitalized after this unprovoked attack in South St. Louis County.
Gladney, a cancer survivor, was selected for the beatdown because he was handing out “Don’t Tread On Me” flags and because he was black. …
Kenneth Gladney was beaten by several SEIU thugs after the meeting let out. He was working outside the town hall event selling flags and buttons when he was attacked.
I replied “I am Sir, would you like a flag or a button?“
He shouted at me, “What kind of nigger are you?!” Then, he grabbed my board, so I quickly grabbed it back, then the man punched me in the face and charged at me . I put my hands up to block the second blow from the large man, when two other people from that group grabbed me and threw me to the ground and started punching and kicking me. I was kicked in the head and in the back, legs and buttocks. Then a white woman ran up to me while I was on the ground and began kicking me in my head as well. A few people came to my rescue for which I am forever grateful.
Top White House aides gave Senate Democrats a recess battle plan on Thursday, arming the lawmakers with tips for avoiding disastrous town hall meetings[.] …
They showed video clips of the confrontational town halls that have dominated the media coverage, and told senators to do more prep work than usual for their public meetings by making sure their own supporters turn out[.] …
“If you get hit, we will punch back twice as hard,” Messina said, according to an official who attended the meeting.
That very evening, Kenneth Gladney got his beating.
After the story blew up in New Media, SEIU donated $50,000 in blood money to Media Matters, who proceeded to demand the DC Media ignore the story. It worked. The media either ignored or outright dismissed actual violence done to an actual black man at an actual political event.
The political media is a den of abject, utterly shameless liars who will invent, fabricate, lie, and then lie again.
And they are just getting started on Trump.
Outside of the above examples, we have already seen CNN, ABC News and NBC News fabricate evidence to destroy a Hispanic man.
With the political media, we are dealing with the most dishonest and corrupt group of left-wing extremists ever assembled. They have no ethics, no conscience, and if it will in any way further the left-wing narrative, they will not even hesitate to fabricate a lie to destroy innocent people.
It’s gonna be a long year.
