The "rap sheet" is now up to 190 examples going back to 2016, but what caught my attention is how each month, as the media continues with their mass hysteria, the number of attacks, harassment and examples of the media not only justifying it, but in some cases deliberately inciting these events, has increased considerably.
Let me put this in context. As of writing this, there are 72 linked examples from January 2018 through July 7, 2018. (Note - The list is being updated so there may be more added) The breakdown for the months is as follows.
January: 1 February: 3 March: 4 April: 4 May: 4 June 42 July 1-7: 14
By June the average was more than one a day (10 times the number from the months before), and within just the first seven days of July, the average is two a day.
MEDIA INSPIRES AND ATTEMPTS TO JUSTIFY ATTACKS ON TRUMP SUPPORTERS
Aside from the media's apocalyptic coverage of just about everything under the sun to generate hate, vitriol, harassment, and violence against Trump officials and his supporters, we have noted, time and time again, the media's reckless disregard for the attacks they have incited, basically shrugging them off as if anyone that supports the President deserves to be harassed and attacked.
The examples range from the media inciting actual harassment by declaring that Trump administration officials deserve a "life sentence" of harassment (Wapo), to calling on Democrats to "take a page from The Godfather" and "go to the mattresses" to stop Trumpís Supreme Court nominee (NYT), to attempting to justify an attack on a minor who was wearing a MAGA hat by an adult after the man ripped the hat (and hair) off the teenager before throwing a coke in his face. (CNN commentator on Twitter)
As ANP previously reported, on July 4th a 16-year old and a couple of his friends were at a burger joint, when out of nowhere a man approached them, tore the MAGA hat one of the teenagers was wearing right off his head, then picked up a cup with soda in it and tossed it in the teenager's face, before walking off calling the kid a nigger. This was captured on a 20 second video.
In response to the viral tweet with the video, some blue-checked guy said "Wish I could take the high road. But your MAGA hat reads like a swastika to me. So ummm ... hmmm. Yeah. Maybe Iím no longer a decent person." CNN commentator Marc Lamont Hill then responded with an emoji representing "tears of joy." Someone else chimed in and asked "So it's ok to do this to half the country? So basically you want war?" Hill responded by saying "I actually donít advocate throwing drinks on people. Not at all. But yes, i think MAGA hats (deliberately) reflect a movement that conjures racism, homophobia, xenophobia, etc. So yes, itís a little harder to feel sympathy when someone gets Coca Cola thrown on him."
I am not sure which is more disturbing, that CNN has a commentator that would attempt justify an attack on a minor, by an adult, simply because the teen supports his President or that 1,666 other liberals "liked" his comment. (Note the 666 - Evil people!) I don't count the retweets as support because some people retweet in order to criticize what someone has said.
Here is the 20 second video again for those that haven't seen what this CNN commentator and other blue-checked liberals on Twitter are attempting to excuse and justify.
Also on July 4th, another man,†Jeff Good from Boynton Beach, Florida, was attacked in his own yard because he had a Trump flag. He said the man ordered him to take it down, when he refused, the man punched him. Good automatically attempted to punch back, got his arm stuck in the guys window, then was dragged about 30 feet.
On July 6th a Long Island man was arrested after threatening to kill supporters of Republican†Representative Lee Zeldin and President Trump.
Also on July 6th, Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz, a Democrat that had previously touted that he proudly voted for Hillary Clinton, told Tucker Carlson that because of his defense for president Trump gaainst what he considers unethical legal maneuvers being aimed at him, a woman at a Martha's Vineyard party stated "if Dershowitz were here tonight, Iíd stab him through the heart."
In June alone there were 10 times more documented cases of media-inspired harassment, attacks, and death threats against conservatives than the months prior, and in July there have been 14 examples in just the first seven days.
So as we see the constant whining on the part of people like CNN's Brian Stelter about the president pushing back against the fake news, the misleading stories geared towards inciting liberals, and calling them "bad people," while they show absolutely "no self-awareness" regarding their own encouragement and calls for harassment against Trump supporters and administration officials, let me offer them the same response as their own commentator offered "Itís a little harder to feel sympathy" for them, at all.
