CNN Camera Crew Attacked At BLM Protest

Protester Throws Water Bottle at CNN Crew Who Gets Mocked After Falling Down

As rioters gathered again Wednesday night to do their part in fighting police brutality by violently attacking innocent people, looting stores, and other acts completely unrelated to police brutality, the rioters assaulted CNN crew members and chased them away.

“Man part of CNN crew for CNN reporter @miguelmarquez was hit in the head by a protester at the #BLM protest in Brooklyn Center, Minn. He falls to the ground from assault,” Andy Ngo, a journalist who covers domestic terrorism, wrote on Twitter. He later reported, “CNN reporter @miguelmarquez & his crew were violently chased away from the #BLM protest in Brooklyn Center, Minn.”

The riot broke out Wednesday night, marking the fourth consecutive night of rioting after the shooting of Daunte Wright by a police officer. Rioters gathered around the Brooklyn Center police headquarters, leading to an assembly that was deemed unlawful. According to USA Today, “One video showed one protester carrying the head of a fake pig on a pole near a fence outside the heavily guarded station as police monitored the crowd from the structure’s rooftop.”

Police were forced to use rubber bullets to attempt to disperse the crowd, as the rioters threw objects at the officers.

 “That’ll add to the zip-tie bruises I got the other night,” a rioter who was hit by a bullet told USA Today, unintentionally illustrating the power of propaganda through his determination to riot.

The attack on CNN crew members comes less than a year after rioters protested police brutality by attacking CNN headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia, after the shooting of George Floyd in May 2020.

    BLM has bitten the hand that makes excuses for them.

    The Left always turns on itself, and it couldn’t happen to a worse “Propaganda” machine.

    These “people” are so stupid they don’t even recognize their best supporters. CNN deserved it, though.

    I can’t say I feel sorry for CNN. I hate, loathe and despise that race-baiting, Marxist network of conspiring leftists.

National Public Radio Discontinues Reading the Declaration of Inependence

Published

A post by Todd Starnes alerts that National Public Radio (NPR) has ditched its annual ritual of reading the Declaration of Independence. NPR, derisively referred to by Starnes as “National Public Welfare Radio,” announced the cessation of reading the Declaration. Which staffers at the taxpayer-funded radio network had been reading aloud the document since 1988.

The void that would have resulted from not reading the Declaration was not unfilled. “Instead, NPR broadcast an 11-minute conversation about whether or not the Founding Fathers actually meant the words “all men are created equal.” Here’s a link if you’d like to listen to their “screed” (which also reminds us frequently that many of the Founding Fathers owned slaves).

Starnes disclosed that he owns “KWAM, the leading news talk radio station in Memphis, Tennessee. It angers me that my tax dollars are used to prop up a broadcast competitor that spits on our Founding Fathers and our Founding Documents.”

Interestingly, NPR’s newly voiced contempt and cynicism for the Declaration of Independence does not encompass refusing taxpayer-funded government support. Whether or not the Founding Fathers meant what they said and what they wrote may be grist for energetic banter on a radio program that is increasingly committed to shrill progressive virtue signaling. However, the topic of this discussion among smug well-remunerated media activists is irrelevant. The words of the Founding Fathers have been inspirational for two hundred and forty-six years and have been the moral and legal foundation used to free the slaves and develop Constitutional principles to ensure that slavery can never be implemented in this country. Slavery currently exists in several countries now, but NPR is dedicated to ignoring that scourge.

Trump Will Not Return To Twitter Despite Elon Musk Acquisition

Published

Donald Trump

On Monday, former President Donald Trump said that he is not going to return to Twitter, which he was permanently banned from last year, after Twitter’s board of directors unanimously approved the sale of the company to Elon Musk.

Trump told Fox News that he is “not going on Twitter” and that he is instead going to be busy on his new social media platform, Truth Social.

“I am not going on Twitter, I am going to stay on TRUTH,” Trump told Fox News. “We’re taking in millions of people, and what we’re finding is that the response on TRUTH is much better than being on Twitter. Twitter has bots and fake accounts, and we are doing everything we can.”

“The bottom line is, no, I am not going back to Twitter,” Trump concluded.

As Fox News explained, “Trump was permanently suspended from Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Snapchat following the Jan. 6, 2021 Capitol riot. Twitter deemed a number of his tweets connected to the violent protests as inflammatory and warned of ‘the risk of further incitement of violence.’”

On Monday, Twitter’s board of directors unanimously agreed to be acquired by Elon Musk for $54.20 per share, or approximately $44 billion.

“The two sides worked through the night to hash out a deal that would be valued at $54.20 a share, or $44 billion,” The Wall Street Journal reported. “Twitter had been expected to rebuff the offer, which Mr. Musk made April 14 without saying how he would pay for it, and put in place a so-called poison pill to block him from increasing his stake. But after [Musk] disclosed that he has $46.5 billion in financing and the stock market swooned, Twitter changed its posture and opened the door to negotiations.”

In a press release, Musk highlighted the importance of free speech and Twitter’s role as a “digital town square.”

“Free speech is the bedrock of a functioning democracy, and Twitter is the digital town square where matters vital to the future of humanity are debated,” Musk said. “I also want to make Twitter better than ever by enhancing the product with new features, making the algorithms open source to increase trust, defeating the spam bots, and authenticating all humans. Twitter has tremendous potential – I look forward to working with the company and the community of users to unlock it.”
