Since the November elections earlier this week resulted in nothing close to a blue wave for Democrats, two stories have since popped up regarding journalists, though with largely varying coverage of them.
First, and the story being covered the most, is Jim Acosta playing the victim after he put his hands on a female White House staffer whose job was to pass the microphone to other members of the White House press corps, but Jim refused to let her take away the mic because he wanted to continue badgering the President.
During the event, which was caught on camera, Jim Acosta was making comments, rather than asking questions, directed towards the President. When Trump wanted the mic to go to someone else, the female staffer had to perform her duties of passing the mic to whomever Trump had chosen to speak. However, Jim refused to hand over the microphone, and when the staffer tried to take it away from him, he put his hands in the crease of her elbow in a defensive manner to keep her from taking away the mic.
Now, I will give Jim the benefit of the doubt and say that he probably didn’t mean to do that and only did it in the heat of the moment, out of reaction over someone getting a bit too close to him. However, whatever sympathy I could feel for him goes away when he says he didn’t put his hand on her (video evidence proves otherwise) and goes as far as to say, when back on with CNN, that Trump had been targeting the media and he was trying to shut them down in response to Trump revoking his access to the press corps.
That’s an actual complaint he had in the aftermath of the incident. He didn’t apologize to the female staffer for touching her, even if it had been out of reaction, and even tries to make himself the victim of some injustice.
Due to this incident, the media chooses to side with Acosta and say that the President is attacking the media and trying to shut them down like the “fascist” he is, even though fascists control the media, not fight them (does that ring any bells of previous presidents?).
Now, let’s move on to the second story relating to a journalist, but one who actually has received threats: Tucker Carlson’s home was nearly broken into by an Antifa mob of about 20 people on Wednesday night.
While Carlson was prepping for his show, he received a text from his wife, who was at home at the time, detailing that she was in the kitchen about to make dinner when she heard loud noises and banging on her door. She didn’t know there was a mob outside, thought someone was trying to break in (they likely were), and hid in the pantry.
The reason we know this was an Antifa mob is because the hate group Smash Racism DC posted a video of the mob on Twitter (which has since been deleted by Twitter), which shows chants for Carlson that he was a racist, that he should leave town and were overall making threats towards him (even though he wasn’t there at the time). And in the video, a woman can be heard saying she wants to “bring a pipe bomb” to Carlson’s home.
Tucker Carlson detailed a bit of the event, saying: “Someone started throwing himself against the front door and actually cracked the front door.” Unless that person is a massive moron (they probably are anyway) and was simply expressing his anger by banging himself against the door, I see no reason to believe whoever was doing it was not trying to get inside.
What reason would someone have to throw themselves against someone’s front door, eventually cracking it? Either that person was trying to get inside in a really stupid way, or was simply incredibly moronic, hurting himself while expressing his anger (I’m assuming it was a man, but it could’ve been a woman).
Carlson has, as mentioned, a wife and four young children. Thankfully, he and his children were not inside at this time, but his wife was and she was terrified.
But is the media going to be talking about this, at least to the same extent that they are talking about Acosta? Are they going to say Carlson is the victim of threats like Acosta is? Of course not.
If they do talk about it, it will either be slightly mentioned and then be ignored, or the media will somehow try to justify the actions of the mob. People on Twitter certainly are trying to justify it.
But both of these situations highlight the incessant hypocrisy of the Left and the media. When Jim Acosta puts his hands on a female staffer to keep her from taking away a mic that doesn’t belong to him, and he’s temporarily banned from the White House as a result, the media rushes in to defend him and his actions, denying what he did and trying to characterize Trump as a fascist who is trying to shut down the media.
When Tucker Carlson is actually threatened by a hateful group of people surrounding his house, one of whom stated she wanted to bring a pipe bomb to the home of someone who has a wife and FOUR YOUNG CHILDREN, and with one of them likely trying to break in, all you’ll get is crickets at best and flat out sociopaths who couldn’t give a damn about the family that was just threatened due to Carlson’s beliefs.
And by the way, it’s not like this was a crowd protesting something Carlson said that maybe he shouldn’t have. It was a crowd protesting and threatening someone for holding a different view. It was a crowd that thoroughly believes Carlson is hurting people by exposing the truth about Antifa, the media and the Left in general. It was a crowd that, because they think Carlson is hurting people with words, wanted to hurt him physically and possibly even kill him and his family if that woman on the video was serious about a pipe bomb.
And it’s not like a pipe bomb is hard to make. It’s considered an IED (Improvised Explosive Device) precisely because it’s not hard to make. One of them could have actually made one, lit it, and thrown it inside Carlson’s home. A Molotov cocktail is also not hard to make, and could potentially do quite some damage as well.
So what you have in one corner is a fake news propagandist who calls himself a journalist complaining and crying over the fact that his inexcusable actions were punished (like a child throwing a tantrum), claiming Trump is out to get him and the media. In the other corner, you have a conservative journalist who was threatened at his own home (though he wasn’t there) by a deranged mob of Leftist lunatics who legitimately wish to cause him physical harm that could go as far as to kill him and his family.
Which one of the two will get more coverage? A snowflake “journalist” complaining that daddy took away his toy because he was being bad or a right-winger journalist having a mob of psychopaths at his literal doorstep threatening him and calling for him to leave the very town he grew up in just because he has different views from them?
And let’s not ignore the fact that these deranged lunatics believe the things they believe because they buy into the media narrative that Republicans and conservatives are racists, bigot, homophobes who want to harm people and even kill them by taking away their healthcare, which is up there in terms of massive lies in the history of the world, alongside “I did not have sexual relations with that woman”, “if you like your doctor, you keep your doctor” and “Nazis were not socialists”.
I know that it might be taboo to try to say that it’s because of the media that these people do what they do, but let me ask you this: if the media were covering Trump, and by extension Republicans, fairly and not saying they are racists and fascists, would such mobs show up, particularly as often as they do?
If the media were honest, would Antifa be around, or at least have as many people in their ranks as they do?
You might not want to believe that the media has much or anything to do with the actions of these deranged psychopaths, but their constant attacks on Trump and conservatives creates within their base at least a good number of people who thoroughly believe that crap and will want to take serious action apart from voting against them.
If the words and actions of the media lead others to justify acts of violence and/or harassment, then the media truly is the enemy of the people.
