Incoming demorat Tennessee state House rep calls residents “racist,” GOP voters “uneducated”

She’ll get a pass. Demorats always do…

From Fox News: A newly-elected Tennessee state lawmaker is apologizing after a video surfaced of the Democrat calling her state “racist” and claiming that most of its residents who “voted Republican are uneducated.”

The eyebrow-raising comments from London Lamar, a Democrat who is set to take office in January after running uncontested in the state’s House District 91 in the Memphis area, were made last week in a Facebook Live video posted the morning after the midterm elections.

“Let’s just call a spade a spade. Tennessee is racist. Period,” Lamar says in the video, which has been uploaded on several news websites after being taken off Facebook.

Most of the Tennesseans who voted Republican are uneducated. So, they don’t even know that they showed up to the polls to vote against their own interest,” Lamar says at another point in the video. “They literally voted on color lines.”

On Monday, Lamar, in a Facebook post addressing the footage, described it as a “statistical analysis of the midterm elections based on my numerous years of political experience.”

Her campaign website says she has served the President of the Tennessee Young Democrats and has been a vice-chairwoman of the Black Caucus of the Young Democrats of America, among other positions and recognitions.

“After a review of the numbers after the midterm election, I felt the need to record a Facebook live video to discuss the numbers from both Tennessee and nationwide,” Lamar wrote in the apology post. “My comments did not intend to make a generalization about every white person who voted Republican. The truth about a large number of those who responded with their vote for Republican candidates this election cycle is, they voted in response to the racially charged rhetoric that has come from our President.”

Lamar, however, provided no proof in her Facebook post to back up that claim, nor did she explain how she determined things such as the interests or motives of each of the voters who had cast their ballots in Tennessee last week.

She went on to say that Tennesseans “live in a state that is very racially polarized.

“In my video I made one mistake and that was an overgeneralization of white people and for that I sincerely apologize,” she said. “However, we must not discount the election day data. We live in a state that is very racially polarized. When you look at the needs of rural west, middle and east, the democratic values speaks to their needs. I sincerely desire for the great state of Tennessee to give the democratic values a chance to work for all people.”

Lamar’s comments have been blasted by critics on social media.

“Calling #Tennessee voters uneducated racists while holding that seat is unconscionable,” one Twitter user wrote Tuesday. “It saddens me to know that somebody who feels that way about her constituents has such a trusted position.”

“A person with that attitude should not be in the House of Representatives in the state that she trashed on Facebook,” another added.

Others, on Lamar’s Facebook page, came to her defense.

“Stand tall, little sister. Never surrender and always defend. We got your back,” one person wrote.

This is such baloney: “Crazy sh*t democrats want”

Demorats says the darndest things…

A liberal who lives in Georgia and goes by the name of “TDP” claims that demorats just want to “follow the law.”

His Twitter bio states the following: Middle-class white guy, small business owner, marathon runner, pseudo-intellectual political analyst, and garage sale aficionado. Blocked by @SebGorka.”

On Nov. 9 he tweeted the following:

“Crazy sh*t Democrats want to do:

  • make healthcare affordable
  • reduce gun deaths
  • defend the Constitution
  • follow the law
  • count all the votes”

Let’s do a check on each of the “crazy sh*t” points he claims demorats want, shall we?

Make healthcare affordable:

Obama’s biggest lie of the year (in 2013): “If you like your health care plan, you can keep it.”

In 2014, Forbes published an article that concluded “Obamacare Has Increased Non-Group Premiums In Nearly All States.”

From their article:

“However, a new study from the well-respected and non-partisan National Bureau of Economic Research (and published by Brookings Institution), overcomes the limitations of these prior studies by examining what happened to premiums in the entire non-group market. The bottom line? In 2014, premiums in the non-group market grew by 24.4% compared to what they would have been without Obamacare.  Of equal importance, this careful state-by-state assessment showed that premiums rose in all but 6 states (including Washington DC).”

After the passage of the Affordable Care Act in 2010, I saw my health insurance premiums rise each year while my coverage DECREASED to catastrophic-level coverage. My health insurance plan started out at $380/year and rose to $620/year (while my deductible rose to over $8,000/year and double that for out-of-network coverage).

In 2019, some consumers will experience a decrease yet premiums and deductible are still high. From Consumer Reports:

“If you’re shopping for health insurance through Affordable Care Act exchanges, the time to enroll for next year has arrived. After a few years of big price increases, some consumers will see relief.  

Still, what you end up paying will vary significantly depending on where you live. Rates will be lower in 19 states, and eight of those will see drops of 10 percent or more. But six states have double-digit premium increases. The variation reflects how differently states are trying to rein in the cost of health insurance. 

Premiums and deductibles are still high, of course, which means you’ll need to shop carefully and compare plans to find the best fit.”

Many, many people experienced the same consequences of having to “pass the bill to find out what is in it.”

Reduce gun deaths:

Progressives want to reduce gun deaths via the hash tag of #guncontrolnow. “

Yet many cities and states have some of the strictest gun control laws in the nation and for some reason, their gun death statistics are the highest. See the following demorat-government run examples:

The problem isn’t the lack of gun control laws but rather the ENFORCEMENT of said laws. See the following examples:

Defend the Constitution:

This, of course, doesn’t include defending the Second Amendment.

And the Constitution should be defended, as long as it meets liberals’ standards. For many years, progressives have stated that our Constitution is “outdated” and needs to be updated. See the following examples:

Follow the law:

This is rich. Many progressive-run cities and states blatantly ignore the law and have proclaimed themselves to be a “sanctuary” for illegal aliens. Why cooperate with the federal government when you can choose to ignore federal immigration laws? See the following examples:

Count all votes:

This is one point I do agree that demorats do want: To count all votes, including those of illegal aliens and dead people. And if the process has to ignore a federal court order, so be it. Demorats will find a way to win. See the following examples:

Anyone can tweet an opinion about their party. The tougher part is defending your statement with facts to backup your bullet points.

And that little fact irritates liberals. Just best to tweet your ignorance and hope you get lots of retweets!

The Apostasy of Pope Francis: Wiccan stang and an LGBT rainbow cross

Since his election and installation in March 2013 as Pope Francis of the Roman Catholic Church, we now have sufficient evidence from Jorge Bergoglio’s words and deeds to raise serious questions as to whether this pope is Catholic or even Christian:

  1. To begin, a legitimate case has been made that Bergoglio’s election as pope was illicit, being contaminated by lobbying in violation of papal law.
  2. Bishops, cardinals and archbishops who are Bergoglio’s allies are flagrant homosexuals and pedophiles. See “Pope Francis’ Vatican: a cesspool of pedophiles and homosexuals” and “Catholic Church in Crisis: Pedophile cardinal; Pennsylvania priests abused 1k children; homoerotic church service“.
  3. Bergoglio misuses the pope’s claim to doctrinal infallibility by claiming papal infallibility on climate change.
  4. He is a rank hypocrite:
  5. As pope, Bergoglio has made pronouncements that are contrary to both Catholic doctrine and Christian theology. As an example, in an interview with his longtime atheist friend Eugenio Scalfari, published March 28, 2018 in La Repubblica, Pope Francis claims that Hell does not exist and that condemned souls just “disappear.” This is a denial of what Jesus Himself said in Mark 9 about Gehenna of “unquenchable fire”, and the 2,000-year-old teaching of the Catholic Church about the reality of Hell and the eternal existence of the soul.
  6. Bergoglio’s reign as pope has been one of terror: His critics are censored and threatened with excommunication. Bergoglio’s most recent and most prominent critic, Archbishop Carlo Viganò, who calls for the pope’s resignation, has gone into hiding, in fear for his life. See also “Cardinal Müller: ‘Pervading sense of fear’ in Pope Francis’ Curia“.
  7. Most egregious of all is Bergoglio’s refusal to genuflect at the consecration, his joke about Christ’s crucifixion, and his concealment of the crucifix by stuffing it inside his waist sash so as not to offend Jews.

Pope Francis hides the Crucifix meeting Israeli rabbis

Here’s the latest — and the last straw for me — on the apostasy of Pope Francis:

(1) The Wiccan Stang

The pagan religion of Wicca or witchcraft uses a range of “magical” tools in its rituals — at an altar or inside a “magic” circle. Each of the tools has different uses and associations, but all supposedly direct magical energies.

The stang is one such “magical” tool — a pronged wooden staff, topped either with a naturally occurring fork or with antlers affixed (Wikipedia). Wiccans claim that witches not only rode on broomsticks, but also on stangs.

On October 3, 2018, Pope Francis opened the Synod of Bishops in Saint Peters Square in Vatican City, holding what appears to be a Wiccan stang, instead of the traditional papal ferula with a cross at the top. (PJMedia)

Contrast the stang carried by Pope Francis with the papal ferula carried by Pope John Paul II:

(2) The LGBT Rainbow Cross

It’s bad enough that homosexuals have appropriated the rainbow, which God sent after the Great Flood as a sign of His promise that He would never again punish humanity and other living creatures with “a flood to destroy the earth” (Genesis 9).

On World Youth Day on October 17, 2018, Bergoglio signaled his solidarity with homosexuals by adorning himself with an LGBT rainbow cross pendant (LifeSiteNews).

I second Archbishop Viganò’s call for Pope Francis to resign. If U.S. bishops have any integrity, they should do likewise.

When thoughts & prayers aren’t enough to end gun violence, wear a t-shirt!

Remember, progressives tell us that “thoughts and prayers” are not enough to end gun violence.

Guess the only solution is to wear a t-shirt that says “Enough.”

From Yahoo:  Last week’s Thousand Oaks mass shooting is still at the top of many people’s minds, and Los Angeles area athletes are no exception. Before the Los Angeles Lakers faced the Atlanta Hawks at the Staples Center, many were spotted wearing tribute shirts with the names of the 12 people murdered at the Borderline Bar & Grill on the back and the word “enough” on the front.

After the game, reporters asked LeBron James to give his thoughts on the shooting, and he obliged.

“Probably the same that went through everybody’s mind: ‘Not again.’ Or ‘Wow.’ ‘What the hell.’ Probably some more explicit terms that I won’t same right here. it’s just how do we clean up this … It all comes back to this gun situation that we have in America and gun violence. I don’t definitely want to go into that right now, but I can do it at a later point. We know that these people are just being able to go and buy guns and do things with them and innocent lives are being taken at young ages. Young ages. You know, when I was younger we didn’t really have to worry about gun violence too much. I mean, if you had a problem with somebody you kind of fist it out and move on. And now, it’s like people are like shooting it out and don’t even have a problem with somebody. They just got a problem with themselves or a problem with the situation they’re in. It’s just very troubling times for everyone and for parents. It’s just how can you be comfortable with sending your kinds [sic} to school or sending them to church or sending them to the movies or sending them to the mall? Those are kind of like the great havens when I was growing up: school, church, go to the mall, go to a sporting event. That was like heaven. You know? And it’s kind of scary at this point in time. So, sorry to go in depth with it. But you guys asked.”

Read the whole story here.

Hey LeBron, when you going to show up in Chiraq wearing that t-shirt?

Deception: NGO coaches migrants how to pretend to be Christian refugees to gain political asylum

The European Asylum Support Office (EASO) is an European Union agency created in 2010 to improve protection for asylum seekers and to coordinate EU Member States on political asylum. The agency has a process to identify real refugees among the hordes trying to legally migrate to Europe.

Ariel Ricker is the founder and executive director of Advocates Abroad (AA), an NGO (non-governmental organization) founded in Febrary 2016 in Northern Greece. AA’s 380 advocates provide legal aid to refugees and migrants seeking political asylum in Europe, as well as prepare them for their asylum interviews. Recently, University of Cambridge students and 12 British MPs helped raise more than $60,000 for AA.

Lauren Southern is a remarkable 23-year-old Canadian woman and political activist who is the founder of the “Borderless” documentary project on the European migrant/refugee crisis.

George, a producer of “Borderless,” went undercover and took a video of Ricker describing how she and other “refugee advocates” coach migrants on how to pretend to be Christian refugees. Ricker reveals that her organisation, Advocates Abroad, has studied transcripts of asylum interviews so as to generate stock answers to key interview questions for asylum seekers to use. Advocates Abroad teaches applicants to simulate emotions like crying, in order to appear sympathetic, and to display certain refugee characteristics asylum officers are trained to look for, including how to pray as a Christian.

In the undercover video, beginning at around the 2:26 mark, Ricker describes how migrants are coached to fool EU asylum officers into thinking they are genuine refugees:

Ricker: “So we teach them how to, like, literally [feigns being emotionally overwraught; deep sigh], sometimes as simple as this, and then how to tell their story, how to frame it, how to literally explain it, and how to keep their private emotions and their private trauma private, because all this acting is a shield.”

George: “Do you have to coach people on, like, physicality?”

Ricker: “Yeah, I see it like, um, I tell them that this is, um, acting, all of this is acting, it’s all acting, as though this is theater. So, for them to get through, they must act their part in the theater, and that [their part] is the refugee in trauma, because these EASO (European Asylum Support Office) officers are so fucking stupid, all they know is what’s written on the paper EASO says this is refugee in trauma, they have these characteristics. So we coach people how to have these characteristics.”

Beg. at 3:44 mark:

Rickers: “There’s a formula we came up with, which is ironic because I suck at formulas. But it’s [the formula] like significant event, date, and location . . . answer all the questions the same way. [As an example, the migrant should say] in December 2017, in Izmir, Turkey, I was threatened for being a Christian because my boss and his friends jumped me when I was leaving my church. This is the Bible they tried to tear up. This is the crucifix I was wearing that they tried to tear, and it made me feel unsafe as a Christian in Turkey. Baboom. And that way you’ve had the event, the date and the location. So you’ve given them a very specific answer, and you’ve kept it in a tight, short answer as well, rather than rambling about . . . and it’s much harder to refute because you have all the elements in there. So like our narrative timeline format, like, has a fill-in-the-blanks section at this point, and then we have, like, two examples for home country being significant danger in that location, and then ditto for Turkey. So consistency is the most important thing, even if you find yourself in a position where you have to lie, because you suddenly remembered something else. It’s best just to stick with what you said.”

Beg. at 5:40 mark:

Ricker: “They put in the decision whether or not you were acting with emotion, so you have to be, like [feigns sighing and crying], or crying, or stopping, or throwing up, or asking for a break. So it’s, um, it’s becoming an actor.”

Man: “You have to tell people to ask to take a break?”

Ricker: “Oh, we do. We actually do role play. So we prepare them a folder. So, like, the first roleplaying activity we do is, like, us being them, and they’re the officer, and then we flip around after they’ve had some practice, to see how should I walk into the office, how should I introduce myself, how should I give them the folder, and then how do I sit down, and then when do I stand up, when do I show them how to pray.”

Man: “Why would you need to show them how you pray?”

Ricker: “Because it’s a good way to show honesty. This is done in other places too, like, uh, not good places, to see if you’re truly what you say you are. If you can’t show how you pray….”

Man: “If you’re actually a Christian?”

Ricker: “Mmm.”

Man: “Oh, so if you’re saying that you’re fleeing persecution….”

Ricker: “Then you should probably know how to be, you know, praying that way. They also ask, like, what’s your favorite holiday? So, like, some people just say, like, Christmas. But, like, we explain you can’t just say this because this is not a sufficient answer. You have to say, uh, and you have to say this a certain way, which is, like, December 25th, which is Christmas, which is the birthday of our Lord and Savior.

Lauren Southern says that some of the “migrants” whom Advocates Abroad is teaching how to pretend to be “refugees” are wealthy Muslims who are not being persecuted, as well as criminals and ISIS terrorists.

Watch the video on Bitchute.

According to Borderless:

In an official statement, UNHCR (United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees) said it was ‘alarmed by these reports’ while the Sturm College of Law, a University of Denver school listed as a partner on the Advocates Abroad website, responded to say it was ‘shocked and repulsed’ by the comments made by Ms. Ricker and that the university has no official affiliation with the organisation and its students will not continue to work with Advocates Abroad.

Hypocrite: Rocker Neil Young blasts “climate-change denier” President Trump

Neil Young arriving at the airport via SUV

 

Neil Young’s very large Redwood home

Like most famous globe-trotting celebrities, Canadian rocker Neil Young blasts others for contributing to man-made global warming while spewing more carbon emissions in a year than you and I ever will in our lifetimes.

Young lost his Malibu home in the Woosley fire and, of course, blamed President Trump. From MSN:

Music icon Neil Young lost his home in the Woolsey fire Sunday and came down hard on President Trump for denying the devastating effects of climate change.

“California is vulnerable — not because of poor forest management as DT (our so-called president) would have us think,” Young posted on his website. “As a matter of fact this is not a forest fire that rages on as I write this. We are vulnerable because of Climate Change; the extreme weather events and our extended drought is part of it.

Young goes on to call Trump a “Denier,” saying he hopes the new Congress can bring a “reckoning” to this “this unfit leader” who he said doesn’t understand the seriousness of climate change.

“California is a paradise for us all. A gift,” Young wrote, adding that humans are defenseless against “Mother Nature’s wrath.”

“Fire fighters have never seen anything like this in their lives,” Young wrote. “I have heard that said countless times in the past two days, and I have lost my home before to a California fire, now another.

“Imagine a leader who defies science, saying these solutions shouldn’t be part of his decision-making on our behalf,” he continued. “Imagine a leader who cares more for his own, convenient opinion then he does for the people he leaves. Imagine an unfit leader. Now imagine a fit one.”

Young shared the Malibu home with his wife of three months, actress/director Daryl Hannah. He also owns a ranch in the Santa Cruz Mountains, south of San Francisco.

The Malibu homes of director Scott Derrickson and Robin Thicke were also destroyed in the blaze.

The 83,275-acre fire near the border of Ventura and Los Angeles counties, which has destroyed 177 structures and prompted the evacuation of 265,000 residents. According to officials, the fires were only 10 percent contained as of Sunday night.”

Read the whole story here.

While his Malibu home was destroyed, I’m sure Young will survive in one of his other homes. From what I was able to find he has a home in Redwood, California. No doubt he has a home in his home country of Canada.

He also flies (private jets) around the world to perform concerts. According to a report by Calgary Herald in 2014, Young talks a good talk about climate change while contributing to the problem. From their report:

“While Neil Young spoke to a Calgary news conference at the Jack Singer Concert Hall prior to his Sunday night show, five rock star-style motorhomes were left running outside, spewing fumes into the Calgary air, even though they were mostly unoccupied.

Inside the concert hall, the 68-year-old rock ‘n’ roll legend was talking about the “elephant in the room,” which he later explained was man-made global warming. The only elephant I could see was his enormous carbon footprint and his even bigger hypocrisy between his walk and his talk.”

Typical Hollyweird HYPOCRITE.

The double standard of the left: You’re either for civility and law or you just joke about it

The appropriately named “doofus” who jokes about “chocy” milk and battery…

Guess which side the proggies favor…

TDS-infected libtards change their rules every day. They claim to be the “tolerant” party yet cannot act in a civil manner in our society (just ask Tucker Carlson). See the following:

I came across this tweet by some “doofus” who tweeted the following:

“The right: you f*cking pussy ass liberal Cucks. Also the right: hello police, mean lady throw chocy milk at me.”doo

The “doofus” was referring to the incident that I told you about when an unhinged intern for demorat Andrew Gillum was arrested for battery for throwing chocolate milk on a group of College Republicans tabling on campus.

Granted having chocolate milk thrown on you is no big deal…or is it?

In a civil society, people can control their emotions and actions and not break laws. They can act civil toward one another. They can also respect personal boundaries.

Yet the left ended the rules of civility on November 8, 2016 when President Trump was elected.

Let’s take a look at the definition of battery that most civilized societies recognize, shall we?

The definition of battery, from Wikipedia: Battery is a criminal offense involving the unlawful physical acting upon a threat, distinct from assault which is the act of creating apprehension of such contact.

Battery is a specific common law misdemeanor, although the term is used more generally to refer to any unlawful offensive physical contact with another person, and may be a misdemeanor or a felony, depending on the circumstances. Battery was defined at common law as “any unlawful and or unwanted touching of the person of another by the aggressor, or by a substance put in motion by him.” In most cases, battery is now governed by statutes, and its severity is determined by the law of the specific jurisdiction.”

Given the unhinged antics of the left today, are we to assume that the unwanted touching of a deranged liberal with an unwanted substance is to be accepted?

I have a question for the doofus: Would you not be mad and do nothing if something was thrown at your girlfriend by an unknown person? Would you sit back and let her take it? Are you such a Soy Boy that you would allow people to freely throw things at your girlfriend in a threatening manner?

Do you care nothing about her personal safety? Are you not concerned about what the unknown assailant might throw at her or what they might do to her next?

Doofus can joke about “chocy” milk all he (and I use that term loosely) wants.

Real Americans care about the rule of law. And any real man would stand up and protect their gal from ANY kind of battery, instead of joking about it.

Yet we all know that demorats care nothing about the rule of law (see sanctuary status, Florida elections, Benghazi, private servers, etc.) unless it benefits THEIR ideals.

In my eyes the real p*ssy is one that arbitrarily condones legal violence against an opposing political party, as long as he can turn it into a joke. Such a brave doofus…

And that’s the double standard of the left.

“Liberal firebrand” Hillary Clinton to run for president in 2020?

Hillary can barely make it down/up a flight of stairs. How is she going to make it to Wisconsin in 2020?

According to a post from Twitchy:

“Get ready for Hillary Clinton 4.0. More than 30 years in the making, this new version of Mrs. Clinton, when she runs for president in 2020, will come full circle—back to the universal-health-care-promoting progressive firebrand of 1994.”

Go for it. Can’t wait to see her debate President Trump!

Illegal alien killed three people after release from sanctuary county in New Jersey

Illegal alien Perez got a free pass in Middlesex County/AP Photo

From Fox News: An illegal alien accused of a triple murder in Missouri was previously jailed and released in New Jersey on domestic violence charges, authorities said, putting the spotlight on the conflict between local and immigration authorities nationwide.

Luis Rodrigo Perez, 23, a native of Mexico, is charged with fatally shooting two men and wounding two others on Nov. 1 and fatally shooting a woman the next day.

He was being held on domestic violence charges at the Middlesex County Jail in New Jersey in December 2017 and was released in February, NJ.com reported.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials said they placed a detainer on Perez while he was in custody, but the request was not honored nor was the agency notified when he was let go, said Corey Price, acting executive director of ICE.

“Yet again, an ICE detainer was ignored and a dangerous criminal alien was released to the streets and is now charged with killing three people,” Price said. “Had ICE’s detainer request in December 2017 been honored by Middlesex County Jail, Luis Rodrigo Perez would have been placed in deportation proceedings and likely sent home to his country – and three innocent people might be alive today.

“It is past time that localities realize the perils of dangerous sanctuary policies and resume their primary goal of protecting their residents,” Price added.

In an email to the Associated Press, Middlesex County officials said the detainer wasn’t honored because it didn’t meet the necessary criteria. “This order would have authorized Middlesex County to turn over custody of Mr. Perez prior to, or upon completion of his sentence,” they wrote. “Instead ICE officials chose to do nothing, which places all responsibility of Mr. Perez’s actions squarely upon ICE.”

The county said it adopted a policy last year of honoring detainer requests from ICE if the inmate has convictions for first- or second-degree offenses or is ordered deported by a federal judge.

During Perez’s stint in jail, ICE never requested an order of deportation against Perez, county officials wrote.

Missouri law enforcement officials believe Perez and Aaron Anderson, 19, killed their ex-roommates Steven Marler, 38, and Aaron Hampton, 23, after they were kicked out of their Springfield home.

Perez is also accused of killing a 21-year-old Sabrina Starr the next day at her house. He is charged with eight felony counts in the shootings.

Americans turn against the biased Hate America Media (HAM) with open hostility

Americans already distrust the mainstream media (MSM). A January 16, 2018 Gallup Poll found that distrust of the news media has soared in recent decades, from 25% of U.S. adults in 1989 to 45% today saying there was a great deal of political bias in news coverage. 66% of Americans say that news media “do not do a good job” of “separating fact from opinion” (86% of Republicans; 44% of Democrats).

And no wonder.

Did you know that a study by Indiana University professors Lars Willnat and David H. Weaver found that in 2013, only 7.1% of full-time U.S. journalists identified themselves as Republicans? In fact, the percentage of Republican journalists continues to decline — from 25.7% in 1971, to 18.8% in 1982, to 16.4% in 1992, to 7.1% by 2013. No doubt the percentage is even less than 7.1% in 2018.

With the lawful election of Donald Trump to the presidency, the MSM have gone insane with vitriol and hate, showing that they really are the Hate America Media (HAM).

Here’s an example: a cartoon by New York Times editorial cartoonist Patrick Chappette, portraying U.S. soldiers’ mission as that of fighting Israel’s wars in the Middle East, and the soldiers refusing to defend America’s southern border against the impending invasion of thousands of “caravan migrants”.

No longer covert and sneaky, the Hate America Media have abandoned all pretenses at journalistic objectivity. An example of the HAM’s declaration of open warfare against Trump and his millions of “deplorable” supporters is the editorial board of the New York Times urging Democrats to go to war against a sitting President of the United States by deploying violent and unscrupulous “Godfather” mafia tactics.

Now, the American people are fighting back against the Hate America Media with open hostility, threats, and even physical attacks.

David Bauder reports for the Associated Press, October 29, 2018, that journalist associations are dispensing advice on safety and self-defense tips because of increasing anti-press incidents. The Radio Television Digital News Association (RTDNA) advise reporters to avoid one-person news crews; the National Press Photographers Association is developing workshops on safety. Chris Post, a photographer for WFMZ-TV in Allentown, Pennsylvania, said: “The environment has changed. I’ve witnessed the transition.”

The RTDNA has begun compiling anti-press incidents that it self-righteously calls the “press freedom tracker”. Last year, the first time a count was kept, there were 48 incidents; the count so far this year is 39, including:

  • The June 28 shooting at the Capital Gazette in Annapolis, Maryland, where five people were killed.
  • In October, an intruder was shot after kicking down glass doors at Fox’s local station in Washington, DC.
  • In Dallas, Texas, a man purposely crashed a pick-up truck into the side of a TV station.
  • In Miami, a reporter and a photographer were physically attacked while doing a live shot.
  • In North Carolina, a news crew had its power cable cut while covering a demonstration.
  • CNN correspondent Jim Acostawho is barred from the White House for being rude, combative, and assaulting a White House intern by putting his hand on her arm to stop her from doing her job — has been the target of chants and epithets when covering Trump rallies, including one recently where a man looked at him and made a motion like he was slitting a throat.
  • When WFMZ-TV photographer Chris Post arrived to cover an immigration rally, a man in a car asked him where he was going. Told it was a pro-immigration rally, the man became agitated and stepped on his accelerator, stopping just short of hitting Post. On the same day, a man shouted “fake news” at Post while driving by in a pick-up truck. Post said, “I’m 6-foot-5, 300 pounds. I’ve had somebody try to grab my camera. When it gets to that point, where does it stop? It’s a tough time to be a journalist.” But Post also had an experience while driving through a fast-food pickup line that gave him hope. He was handed a cup of coffee and told the woman in line ahead of him had bought it, wanting to pass along the message “thank you for what you do.”
  • Caitlin Penna, a freelance photographer from Durham, N.C., said she constantly has her guard up on assignments. Even her conservative family is suspicious of her. “I’m pretty sure my grandmother thinks I’m this far-left liberal because of the things I cover,” she said. One night she was unwinding at a local bar and struck up a conversation with a man nearby. When she discussed what she did, the man said, “you report fake news” and walked away.
  • Nic Coury, a freelance photographer who works in California’s affluent Monterey County, said: “Since the election, people are emboldened more.” Coury has been called part of the liberal scum media, an enemy of the state and told he and his colleagues lie all the time. When conservative Arizona politician and law enforcement officer Joe Arpaio made a local appearance, “it was like walking into the dragon’s lair.”

Some journalists are quitting because of the hostility. The hostility she’s felt from the public recently was one of the reasons why Los Angeles KNBC-TV news photographer Lori Bentley-Law decided to quit the business after 24 years.

In her blog post explaining why she was leaving, like other journalists such as Acosta who are devoid of introspection, Bentley-Law blames public hostility entirely on President Trump, as if his supporters are brain-dead zombies who can’t and don’t think on their own. She whined that when a president describes the press as enemies of the people, “attitudes shift and the field crews get the brunt of the abuse. And it’s not just from one side. We get it all the way around, pretty much on a daily basis.”

She says that although there are other factors that contributed to her desire to leave, including shoulder woes from carrying heavy equipment for many years and a constant diet of murders and other depressing story assignments, the current environment is definitely part of it. One recent day, a person in a Mercedes prevented her KNBC news van from getting off a highway until several exits beyond her destination. On another occasion, a man stuck his bare butt out the window and defecated. Bentley-Law wrote:

“I don’t want to be immersed in sadness every day. I don’t ever want a cute little girl in pigtails to look up at me and say, ‘We hate you.’ I don’t want to hear ‘fake news’ shouted at me anymore, or to be flipped off while driving my news van.”

Bentley-Law was flooded with texts and emails from frustrated journalists across the country who’d read her blog. Declining to be interviewed, Bentley-Law said via email: “I suppose my experience isn’t unique and certainly resonated.”
