Here is a textbook illustration of how the corporate media’s sins of omission can be far more damning than the corrupted industry’s sins of commission.

Over the weekend, thousands of patriotic citizens descended on Washington, D.C., to protest election fraud and defend President Donald Trump. Left-wing “black bloc” mobs threw water bottles, bricks, and fireworks at cops and Trump supporters. Eight law enforcement personnel were injured by Antifa and Black Lives Matter anarchists; one officer received multiple severe lacerations to his face. At least 33 were arrested at the close of the weekend for assaults and mayhem, but countless victims received zero help from cops who stood down and did nothing.

So, what did national news outlets choose to focus on?

NBC News: “Black Lives Matter signs burned at D.C. churches; police investigate as possible hate crimes.”

The Washington Post: “Historic D.C. Black churches attacked during pro-Trump rallies Saturday.”

CNN: “Protesters ripped and set fire to BLM signs at two D.C. churches.”

Associated Press: “Vandals hit Black churches during weekend pro-Trump rallies.”

This much is true: As chaos broke out late Saturday night, some members of the Proud Boys stole and set fire to several Black Lives Matter signs that were on display at two D.C.-area churches. This isolated mischief was nowhere near on the scale of the wanton looting, shooting, terrorizing, and burning down of entire downtowns and neighborhoods across the country by Black Lives Matter and Antifa in the name of “social justice.”

But the media propagandists who have labeled violent left-wing riots as “peaceful protests” all year long seized the opportunity to stoke false narratives: Trump supporters are the real threat to civil order. The populist movement to “stop the steal” of election 2020 is rooted in hate. It’s “Jim Crow” all over again, “reminiscent of cross burnings” and the “rise of white supremacy,” according to one of the fragile black church pastors making the rounds.

Except that it’s not.

The idea that this was an “intentional targeting of houses of worship,” as another black pastor claimed, is nonsense on stilts — and a viral video of the incident proves it. The Proud Boys, a largely Christian men’s group led by Afro-Cuban activist Enrique Tarrio, chanted “f—- Antifa!” as they roasted a couple of the BLM signs. They were “targeting” symbols of those twin domestic terrorist groups, whom the Proud Boys have stood against when no one else would, not black church congregations.

ORDER IT NOW

Make no mistake. There has been a concerted campaign of terror against people of faith and their houses of worship this year, but it doesn’t fit the anti-Trump narratives of the propaganda media. Since the George Floyd incident in May ushered in the age of anarchotyranny, scores of Catholic churches have come under attack across the United States. You probably haven’t forgotten about it because you probably didn’t know about it in the first place.

Black Lives Matter leader and propagandist Shaun King instigated the anti-white, anti-Christian, anti-Catholic mob by tweeting during the first outbreak of post-Floyd riots.

“Yes, I think the statues of the white European they claim is Jesus should also come down. They are a form of white supremacy. Always have been,” he fumed. King’s call to violence was explicit: “In the Bible, when the family of Jesus wanted to hide, and blend in, guess where they went? EGYPT! Not Denmark. Tear them down.”

King is still spreading his venom on Twitter.

Catholic officials have tallied at least 39 incidents of “arson, statues beheaded, limbs cut, smashed, and painted, gravestones defaced with swastikas and anti-Catholic language and American flags next to them burned, and other destruction and vandalism” at Catholic churches across 19 states since June. Complicit Clergy, a Catholic watchdog group, tracked nearly 70 such attacks through the summer.

—In May, Our Lady of Mt. Lebanon-St. Peter in Los Angeles was spraypainted with “ACAB” (All Cops Are Bastards) “Kill All Cops,” “FTP” (“f—- the police”), and “Make America Pay For Its Crimes Against Black People” slogans.

—A statue of Jesus was decapitated at St. Patrick Cathedral in El Paso, Tex., after the bishop of the local diocese knelt before a BLM sign.

—Rioters tore down a statue of St. Junipero Serra, an 18th-century Franciscan priest and missionary, at San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park. A Serra statue at Mission San Rafael Arcangel was defaced and toppled. The mission church in San Gabriel, Calif., which Serra founded, was destroyed in July by a massive arson fire.

—”Statues of Jesus and Mary at churches in Boston, Mass., Miami, Tenn., and Colorado Springs, Colo., were set alight, beheaded, and defaced,” Carina Benton reported for The Federalist in October.

—Catholics praying the rosary to guard the King Louis IX statue in St. Louis were threatened and beaten by BLM and Antifa sympathizers.

A BLM leader unleashes a year-long, race-based “Tear them down” ragefest against followers of Christ. The anti-Trump, anti-white journalists are as quiet as church mice. Silence is not just complicity. It’s media malpractice.

  1. Thanks for the update. So much gets missed even when
    one is trying to keep up. Poor Galileo and his damned telescope.
    Imagine all those people,living life in peace.
    You may say I’m a dreamer,but I’m not the only one,I hope
    someday you’ll join us.And the world can live as one.This
    is only going to get worse, unless … we make more money.
    Gold on the ceilings,in the ears,on the fingers,diamonds and
    in the basements,banks and coins. It’s for the poor peaceful
    children, of love, in the next life, right?

  2. “Malpractice” has a connotation of being unintentionally stupid, doesn’t it? The Lyin’ Press of ’20 is stupid, as mainstream journalists have long been, but they make these lies of omission because they hate us too.

    I’m going to diverge from your opinion here, Mrs. Malkin. I don’t think the Proud Boys and like groups of Americans will get far playing defense against the violence that is encouraged by the Establishment. They need to realize that sometimes the best defense is a good offense. If a few Lyin’ Press types get caught in the fray, I won’t be all broken up about it either.

    In the meantime, have we even heard a peep about the historic Mayflower landing at Plymouth</b 4 CENTURIES ago yesterday?

  3. I recall reading about an incident where some (((Antifa/BLM))) misfit mistakenly attacked a synagogue, thinking it was a Christian church. No one said that these useful idiots were the sharpest knifes in the drawer. The reject member of (((Antifa/BLM))) was berated for it by one of his “superiors.” The misfit who attacked the synagogue was shamed so much after being chastised that he couldn’t apologize enough.

    So like the Jewish LED Bolsheviks in the old Soviet Union, where “anti-Semitism” was a crime punishable by death and only Christian churches were torched while synagogues were left unharmed, it seems (((the usual suspects))) aren’t anti-religion, but just anti-Christian. Considering that 80-85% of the leaders of the Bolshevik Revolution aka Jewish Revolution in Russia were Jews, this makes perfect sense.

    Are these “anti-religion” (((communist groups))) attacking any mosques or synagogues or are they AS USUAL ATTACKING ONLY CHRISTIAN CHURCHES IN AN OVERWHELMINGLY CHRISTIAN NATION.

    Had enuff, people? Are you willing to live in another (((Soviet Union?)))

    Do you know the history of the Bolsheviks, and how they quashed all religions? Some revolutionaries had religious backgrounds, but they ended up bowing to the supremacy of the politburo in godless Communism.

    'Bolsheviks, including Jewish Bolsheviks, were hostile to Judaism. From December 1918 to August 1919, the teaching of Hebrew was banned, religious instruction in Judaism was forbidden, the Kehillot (an umbrella organization of Jewish communists) was suppressed and the leaders of those organizations were rounded up and imprisoned.' - Bruce Walker

    That commandment about 'Thou shalt have no other gods before me' was not allowed. Only the State and the Leader were worshipped. As with the NAZIs, religious figures or pictures were taken down in schools and public places, and churches were closed.

  5. Anonymous[227] • Disclaimer says:

    “Racist” an antiwhite hate word. It’s used to deny borders, homogeneity, to all and only white peoples, even those in the Mediterranean and Eastern Europe, themselves colonized and enslaved for centuries by the very people invading them today.

    “Racist” was used by the Bolsheviks to demonize and then murder tens of millions of Russian Christians.

    “Racist” is used to justify the gruesome rape and torture of whites in South Africa, in a place they settled 400 years ago, long before today’s dominant Bantus showed up. Unlike the Bantus, whites did not exterminate smaller and helpess tribes on the continent, and nothing in their history is remotely as cruel and evil as what’s happening right now.

    Our real privilege is no borders. It was never antiracism, it was always antiwhiteism. It was never “diversity”, it was always something else.

  7. Clearly to the left, bobbing and weaving to avoid their punches is not allowed, much less counter punching like the Proud Boys do. They expect us to just stand there and get slugged over and over until we die, making our replacement all the easier.

  8. Taking Back Virginia. Candidate Kurt Santini is Taking Back Virginia.

  10. That BLM guy & his point that Jesus & family went to Egypt not Denmark is one point I must admit escaped me.
    Why didn’t they go to Denmark?
    Serious question, guys.
    Of course, Denmark per se didn’t exist, but that’s a poor excuse. Nor had it much connection to the Empire…which could have made travelling a bit trickier…. Not to mention a tad further.
    Funnily enough the BLM guy doesn’t realise that Egypt was run by white Europeans; the Greeks then the Roman’s. Perhaps that’s why they chose Egypt….? Oh, & the sizable Jewish community in Egypt probably played no part in their thinking either….

  11. I don’t understand how you always manage to misrepresent the facts before commenting on them. It’s not that difficult to understand what is going on, yet you seem to never be able to get it right. Your commentaries would be much more meaningful if they were based on the truth of the matter, but it seems they never are.
