Hey, Los Angeles Times, they’re rioters, not protestors
today at 8:20 am
Here’s the lead paragraph of a story in the Los Angeles Times:
PORTLAND, Ore. — The nightly standoffs in downtown Portland between protesters and federal agents continued early Sunday, with several dozen agents in camouflage deploying tear gas and other munitions as they waded into the streets beyond the federal courthouse to push back demonstrators who authorities said had breached a fence. [Emphasis added.]
Do these stormers look like protestors? Are they standing innocently, or attacking?
The Los Angeles Times isn’t alone in this propaganda-qua-reporting. It’s showing up all the time. But the media aren’t willing to recognize that even the rioters themselves have eschewed Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s strategy of non-violent protest. They say non-violence is ineffective–another glaring sign that they don’t know history. The non-violent civil rights movement accomplished one of the nation’s greatest reforms and cultural change.
What will the rioters’ violence achieve? The re-election of Donald Trump.
