After years of the left going on about systematic racism, white privilege and white supremacy, it seems that they have become colorblind. Especially when news events don’t match with the narratives they expect us to believe.
Case in point is the media coverage of the parade massacre in Wisconsin. It seems the reporting by leftist media outlets like MSNBC, CNN, The New York Times and Washington Post are deceiving the public. Examples include:
CNN reported “Waukesha will hold a moment of silence today, marking one week since a car drove through a city Christmas parade, killing six people and injuring scores of others". Let’s be clear, a man drove the car it did not drive itself.
CBS News, Associated Press and the Washington Post reported the massacre as a “parade crash”. They must also believe that a rape is a “date gone bad” and a murder is just an altercation that ended with one winner and one loser.
No interest in understanding the motive for the alleged murderer. Despite social media posts and videos promoting racial bigotry toward whites and support for BLM, no legacy media is actually exploring why the perpetrator did what he did.
Downplaying the alleged killer’s criminal past, the District Attorney’s approach to criminal justice reform or eyewitness testimony that the alleged murderer purposely drove the car back and forth to kill as many as he could.
It seems the media would like to move on from the event all together. Unlike when a white supremacist drove a car through a protest killing a woman. That story went on for months. They really can’t wait to move on from the parade massacre because it seems a black man with some racial animosity killed dancing grannies and kids. No call for Joe Biden to go visit the grieving city or asking our Vice President to support a go fund me page for the victim’s families.
Yes, the legacy media wants to move on another local news event they can nationalize. One that better fits their narratives that the country is racist, and people of color are victims. It is amazing they have any viewers or readers at all.
This of course is not a one off for the left. We have seen over the last several years their narratives fall apart under facts and scrutiny. Let’s go back down memory lane and see how the left got it all wrong:
Kyle Rittenhouse was a white supremacist, had no ties to Kenosha and carried a gun across state lines.
Jacob Blake was unarmed.
Michael Brown was running away from the police saying, “hands up, don’t shoot”.
The Covington kids were aggressive toward a native American man.
Capitol police were killed by Trump supporters during the capitol riots.
Jussie Smollett was attacked by two white supremacists with MAGA hats.
More and more Americans are distrusting the political narratives around news events and the media that report on them. You see, we in America are at a crossroads. Most want a future where race is a non-factor. Most view are neighbors, friends and family as individuals. We approach others with a handshake and acceptance. We expect our kids to be color blind and unless indoctrinated they mostly are.
The problem of course is that unity and a shared vision does not sell advertising or make for good click bait. So, the media and the leftists that drive the lies and misinformation push more and more outrageous stories to stoke tension and win the battle for eyeballs.
Time to shut your eyes to their bullshit.
