Your Moral And Intellectual Superiors

The facts were known within hours. That didn’t stop mainstream media from choosing the lie;

For more than a year, it has been consecrated media fact that former President Donald Trump and his White House, on June 1 of last year, directed the U.S. Park Police to use tear gas against peaceful Lafayette Park protesters, all to enable a Trump photo-op in front of St. John’s Church. That this happened was never presented as a possibility or likelihood but as indisputable truth. And it provoked weeks of unmitigated media outrage, presented as one of the most egregious assaults on the democratic order in decades.

This tale was so pervasive in the media landscape that it would be impossible for any one article to compile all the examples. “Peaceful Protesters Tear-Gassed To Clear Way For Trump Church Photo-Op,” read the NPR headline on June 1. The New York Times ran with: “Protesters Dispersed With Tear Gas So Trump Could Pose at Church.” CNN devoted multiple segments to venting indignation while the on-screen graphic declared: “Peaceful Protesters Near White House Tear-Gassed, Shot With Rubber Bullets So Trump Can Have Church Photo Op.”

ABC News anchor George Stephanopoulos “reported” that “the administration asked police to clear peaceful protesters from the park across the White House so that the President could stage a photo op.” The Intercept published an article stating that “federal police used tear gas and rubber bullets to clear protesters from Lafayette Square in front of the White House,” all to feature a video where the first interviewee said: “to me, the way our military and police have behaved toward the protesters at the instruction of President Trump has almost been Nazi-like.”Nazi-like. This was repeated by virtually every major corporate outlet…

  1. To the leftist media operatives, the ends justify the means. Would anyone of 99% of the left have a problem with lying if it was against Trump? Absolutely not. Honesty is for others and in politics today, the others are losers.

  2. Meh. Trump ordering the teargassing of peaceful protesters so he can stage a photo-op still has the ring of truth to it, innit?

    1. Yes, even though it’s a complete lie, if you believe it, then it’s true. OTOH, examples abound of something being completely true somehow being a lie, though the truth later when it can no longer be denied, with the cover of time in place.

      Russian Trump collusion. Hunter Biden’s laptop. Joe’s involvement with Ukraine. Covid lab escape. Limiting travel is racist.

      A long list, getting longer by the day. Any lie they assert becomes fact. Any fact proven is censored to become a lie. Twits rule.

  3. The Washington DC Police Department bravely, fearlessly HID the fact that their police officers were the ones that used tear gas in the park.

    They let the feds take the blame. For months and months.

  4. Such fine people, those lying, thieving and conniving fascists. Goebbels, Lenin and Mao would have blushed at such treachery.
    Only in a democracy. Ironically, tragically and perhaps irredeemably, yes. Oh darn in the US against a well armed populace.
    Root causes never defined. Climate change never defined. The existential threat of white domestic terrorism, never defined.
    Common “goals” – impervious to concise articulation, so immune from accountability, them all knowing, even of the future.
    That’s how you get clods like Barack Obama lecturing Americans they must change to mollify a radical sect of 13% of the country.
    Somebody must be at fault and only collectivist rescuers are fit to save citizens by those entirely culpable for their misery.
    Too much criminals getting caught. Too many idiots resisting arrest. Defund the police.
    Want to make the country safer and promote higher wages. Open the border to drugs and cheap labour.
    Want to save the world from climate change. Cancel pipelines and give China license to pollute the world.

  5. Little mea culpas will never make up for the damage they’ve done, and they don’t care.

  6. Lawsuits. Against every single one of them. Major publicity, too…expose them for the shameless liars that they are.

    These people understand nothing else. Hit them in the wallet until they scream…

    1. As if.

      In the American “Justice” system?

      Where they can go judge shopping and find their fave DeMarxist party operative in black robes, to dismiss any charge against his party frenz?

      Lies by the media have no repercussions, they just get memory holed. We live in a fact free society today, where only fantasy, wishful, magical thinking counts as “real”.

      Men pretending their women.
      Women pretending they are men.
      We’re gonna die from a trace gas.
      We’re gonna die from a virus where well over 99% of people that get it survive, but ya gotta get jabbed or else you’re a hater of other people.
      Homeless people are just like you and I.
      Addicts, are just like you and I.
      Trudeau is a quantum physicist.
      Freeland is a finance minister.

      I could go on and on. This is a make believe country, run by idiots, for idiots. When it crashes, it’s going to be BAD.

  7. In this world, now, we have multitudes of idiots, that would swoon at the feet, of that little boy who cries “wolf wolf”, and ask him politely, please tell us again, about the wolf “sir”, without reservation…or suspicion. .Listening to these liars in the media, and believing one utterance from their bile infested lips,, simply classes one as a “dullard”, sucks, doesn’t it dullards, sucks to be a stupid dullard I’m sure it does, keep reading the herald, or listening to CFR or Qr, you are right over the target, only trouble is , you are the target.
