White House Press Secretary unleashed on the mainstream media for its inability to cover Antifa violence.
According to Town Hall:
After being pelted with a series of questions about President Trump’s condemnation of white supremacy Thursday, White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany berated the press for their lack of interest in accurately covering violence perpetrated by leftist organization antifa.
“[President Trump] wants to prosecute the KKK as domestic terrorists and make lynching a federal crime. Again all of that lost on the media as they misreport, take out of context, ignore the verbatim words of this President when he denounced white supremacy yesterday, when he denounced it at the debate, when he’s denounced it more than any president in modern history,” McEnany said. “Something else lost on the media is an absolutely turning of a blind eye on Antifa. Carrying the water for Democrats the media apparently agrees with Jerry Nadler that Antifa violence is a myth. In August Senate hearings Democrats refused to condemn antifa. Again no journalistic curiosity here despite the fact that Andy Ngo, who is a victim of antifa said Democrats have mastered, Democrats, he should add the media too, have masted the art of making its violence appears innocuous.”
“Their violence isn’t innocuous. Antifa is not an idea. Any Ngo can tell you that because he was beaten by a group of protestors, antifa protestors, suffering brain bleed. Another man can tell you this who in 2019, the victim, his name is Adam Kelly, suffered from a concussion and had 25 staples in his head but still silence from Democrats, ignoring this group,” she continued. “In fact, as we saw recently, there was a Trump supporter who was killed by a ‘100 percent antifa man,” that is how he described himself and again, no reporting here but I guess I did the job of the media here by getting this information myself…ideas do not target police officers. Ideas do not burn down buildings. Ideas do not kill innocent Americans. Organizations do and Democrats should condemn this shameful group in the same way President Trump continues to condemn white supremacy.”
“They’re basically a collection of liars. Most of the mainstream media. They’re a collection of liars and they know exactly what they’re doing. A perfect example of that were the riots. Right on the street it was clear as day what was going on, anyone observing it, reporters observing it, it could not have escaped their attention that this was orchestrated violence by a hardened group of street fighting radicals and they kept on excluding from their coverage all the video of this and reporting otherwise and they were doing that for partisan reasons, and they were lying to the American people. It wasn’t until they were caught red-handed after essentially weeks of this lie that they even started feeling less timid,” Barr recently told Townhall in an interview. “The press has dropped, in my view – and I’m talking about the national mainstream media – has dropped any pretense of professional objectivity and are political actors, highly partisan who try to shape what they’re reporting to achieve a political purpose and support a political narrative that has nothing to do with the truth. They’re very mendacious about it.”
The media is now focusing on a slip from Trump at the debates instead of the elephant in the room that is ravaging American cities.
