The MSM Wages War On Police, And Tries To Rewrite History
I don't know why Liberals struggle to understand this, but we need the police. They deter crime and ensure that our laws are upheld. They protect us and are there in our time of need. But according to libs they are practically the army of evil. Last summer BLM and Antifa wreaked havoc on cities all across America. They rioted, committing a whole slew of crimes including arson and numerous assaults. But now the Media is trying to rewrite history and claiming that the police were too tough on the "peaceful" protester last summer. Even though the police were called off many times which in some cases lead to whole city blocks being occupied...
"Nine months after the death of George Floyd triggered a massive wave of riots and looting, The New York Times has issued a lengthy report about what happened — and blamed it all on the police.
In a recent front-page story headlined, “In City After City, Police Mishandled Black Lives Matter Protests,” the paper predictably lays the entire blame on cops, rather than on radicals who wrecked commercial districts and caused at least 25 deaths and thousands of injuries.
In the heat of the crisis, mainstream outlets called the riots “protests.” It was an eye-wateringly brazen attempt at gaslighting, belied, in some cases, by reporters claiming the “protesters” were “mostly peaceful,” even as the cityscapes behind them were ablaze."
"The recent Times story fits neatly into a narrative about police brutality, in which predatory, violent cops are spreading havoc rather than keeping the peace. The report portrays police across the nation as “poorly trained, heavily militarized and unprepared” for mass unrest."
"It’s true that cops need more funding for recruitment and training."
"But whose fault is that? Politicians task police with stopping crime and a host of other jobs, lately including enforcing arbitrary lockdown rules. So it isn’t hard to see why they weren’t prepared for a Black Lives intifada on US streets."
This is pathetic. BLM and Antifa were rioting. They demanded the police be defunded, which led to even more lawlessness, with crime rates exploding in any blue city that gave in to their demands. Libs can sugarcoat it however they want, but it doesn't change the fact that there were riots last year and they were by no means caused by the police.
