CNN’s Mostly Peaceful Riots

If they will lie this much about stuff at home, imagine how much they can get away with reporting on somebody else's conflicts

In a remarkable act of woke doublethink, a CNN report has described Black Lives Matter protests in Wisconsin as ‘fiery, but mostly peaceful’, while burnt-out cars and a building in flames were visible in the background.

This is not the first time mainstream media outlets have sought to downplay the violence and rioting that has often followed or gone hand in hand with BLM protests. Over the past few months, the US has experienced its worst riots in decades, but this has been largely glossed over.

In May, an MSNBC reporter commented on what was apparently ‘mostly a protest’ and ‘not generally speaking unruly’, while standing in front of a burning building.

In June, in the UK, the BBC ran an astonishing headline: ‘27 police officers injured during largely peaceful anti-racism protests in London.’

These absurd and transparent attempts to downplay the chaos the BLM movement has unleashed show just how devoted to woke identity politics much of the media have become. That journalists are prepared to openly deny obvious truths in this way is a worrying indication of the collapse of impartial reporting. If the violence was committed by right-wing thugs, would they report it in the same way?

Thankfully, viewers can see with their own eyes what is really going on.

CNN, like all of the other members of the mainstream media, use the basic scripts that are provided to all of them by TPTB and only add their own spin. This is easy to see if you watch more than one source simultaneously. Sometimes they’ll do the same stories at the same time, as if in harmony.

arson is considered a bbq in USA—-vandalism is consider good manners by Emily Post; looting is democratic anarchism in USA and now BLM is now Robin Hood in tights

The violence *is* being committed by right wing thugs. The Amerikastani “left” is far right wing Big Business friendly capitalism wearing a pink pussyhat and wrapped in a rainbow flag. It has nothing to do with the left anywhere else in the known universe.
