REPORTER ACCUSES TRUMP OF ENCOURAGING POLITICAL VIOLENCE TRUMP FLIPS THE SCRIPT
Daily Caller ^ | 11/2/18 | Benny Johnson

Posted on 11/03/2018 2:55:29 AM PDT by JonnyFive

President Trump had a blunt response for a reporter accusing him of motivating political violence with his speech.

There has been a rash of politically motivated terror in the past two weeks. A right-wing zealot has been arrested in coordination with mail bombs sent to prominent Democrats and media targets, and a Synagogue was attacked by an anti-Semite, killing 11 members of the congregation.

This works.

I did the same thing, a decade ago, calling in to a local talk show.

The liberal host was asking how we could stop school shootings.

I told him the media had to stop glamorizing the school shooters.

He was shocked and shut up.

It was great.

Excerpt the OP failed to include:

As Trump was leaving the White House Friday, a reporter yelled, “You’re encouraging politically motivated violence with the way you speak.”

Trump pointed at the reporter and shot back, “You’re creating violence by your question.”

The reporter gasped, “Me?” and Trump replied, “You are creating — you.”

The president continued, saying that violence is stoked up by “fake news.”

As he explained to the reporter:

“A lot of the reporters are creating violence by not writing the truth. The fake news is creating violence. You know what? The people that support Trump and the people that support us, which is a lot of people, most people, many people, those people know when a story is true and when a story is false. If the media would write correctly and write accurately and write fairly, you’d have a lot less violence in the country.”

This actually nails it. If the press reported fairly there would be no such thing as Black Lives Matter.

BLM is based not only on lies about the Brown case, but also lies about statistics regarding cops shooting unarmed black men. First, they shoot a lot more unarmed white men. Second, they don’t actually shoot that many unarmed black men - it’s shockingly rare. Third, many of them are actually perps escaping a crime scene or arrest when it happens.

Another fact the Goebbels media omits...

93% of black homicides are “Black-on-Black”.

Where are the “Just-Us” warriors, Sharpton & Jackson?

Notice how that’s not even a question, just an accusation.

These people are no longer journalists, they are advocates.

He’s right. The synagogue was attacked by a Trump-hating anti-Semite.

A lot of the democrats running for office wouldn’t stand a chance if the mainstream media reported the truth about them. They ignore news that shows they are radical extremist, and it works at keeping a lot of voters in the dark. They attack Trump regardless of what he does, and downplay negative news about democrats if it becomes too big for them to just ignore completely. We need to find new ways to reach the less involved voters. If you don’t look for conservative news, you aren’t exposed to it anywhere near the level you are the leftist propaganda outlets.

Donald Trump still has his First Amendment rights just like any other US citizen, so what’s the problem?

I wonder if the “reporter” is aware of Maxine Waters...

Another case-in-point: yesterday, I was flipping channels and saw ali velshi say that “Trump lies, on average, 30 times per day”. Yeah, that’s tellin’ it like it isn’t.

That is just horsesheet reporting.

Mike Wallace at a townhall forum said journalists who know in advance of an attack on our troops should remain neutral and cover the carnage.

“Reporters first, Americans second”

Exactly! This so-called reporter is no different than the screaming protesters spewing accusations.
