Media bias or the new liberal reality??

By lostand confused   2016 Mar 13, 12:32pm 4952 views   33 comments   watch   quote      

Ok, so I drove again to the trump rally in Bloomington, IL today-since the fascist/Nazi dems denied me my 1st amendment rights on Friday in Chicago.

Those attending the rally had to walk past protestors screaming nasty stuff. Mind you the majority of the rally goers were peaceful families-kids, families, grandma coming in for the show on a Sunday-but all had to walk past the wall of protestors screaming incredibly nasty stuff. Now there were huge crowds and some including me could not get in as the building had reached capacity , so trudged back past the vile protestors. Some young college kids/Bernie supporters pointed at me and yelled and asked me if trump deported me from his rally and then they all laughed. I guess because I am non white? Others were taunted and thrown vile insults as they were peacefully going back to the cars-families, people with walkers etc.

There were media , but you think they will report on the vile racist, hateful protestors? You think they will report on the peaceful trump rally attendees who peacefully walked passed these vile imbeciles-most looked like college kids and BLM and some Mexicans- and had insult after insult hurled at them.

Nope they will capture the one person amongst the 10,000+ crowd who couldn't take it anymore and decked one of the protestors and say that is the proof that trump supporters are crazy. This is not hidden, but right out in the open-I guess it does not fit the narrative.

I always heard of the term of media bias, but now seeing it in action -am wondering is it just on purpose or maybe the liberal worldview is so strong that except some online sources, nobody dare cross the PC line and only report the PC sanctioned view.

But you can see this behavior in campuses-in Yale where that Black girl was screaming obscenities at her professor-in my day that would have got you expelled-which is what trump is bemoaning the days gone by-if 100 people scream obscenities at 1,000s of families and children as they pass by-they would have got a good thumping and would have learned to behave the next time.

I really find it interesting the spin of the media especially the left-even the right except trump won't touch it. I don't know about the election-maybe the left will shame the right and independents and Ihllary will win-but interesting to experience these concepts yourself.

No offense, there's something called the internet and cell phone video/viral videos. If the protesters were doing anything that bad... then there would be tons of video of it online. Everyone and their MOM has a cellphone camera. Go upload it to YOUTUBE and post a link to every website you can find. If it's offensive enough... It will gain traction and go viral... otherwise... you're anecdotes are meaningless.

I'm not saying the protesters are all peaceful.. but the media doesn't have nearly the power you think. The mass media constantly plays catch up with the internet. Show me a video of a black protestor cursing at a small white child until they cry... and post it online... Believe me it will get attention.

Nobody except the protestors are going to the rally expecting trouble. I drove 3 + hrs to get there and then parked the car and walked over in the rain as probably did many of the families. We were just going there to listen to trump. The protestors were the vile ones whose sole purpose is to cause trouble.

Many of us, me included have decent jobs and don't want to be on TV or camera as it will cause issues. We seen plenty were people expressed political views-wether that be gays and progressives have targeted them on the internet and harassed them and forced them to be fired. The protestors/bums want to be on camera, want to cause a scene.

In today's world having anti leftist views and being caught on camera can easily ruin your professional life for ever-because once it goes online, it can never be erased. So no, unless you are a bum with nothing to lose, most of the trump supporters won't be taking videos and posting on the interent-not in this PC climate.

The media which is right there can easily capture the protestors and what theya re screaming and show it to the world-but nope it is trump's fault.

If true, I hope they did not go any further than this.

You do know that these people are attending a speech by a candidate who has discussed the size of his penis on national television, yes? And advocated for people to be physically assaulted? Perhaps these grannies and children should not be at a Trump rally in the first place, since it's not what I'd call family friendly.

I have little sympathy for people attending fascist rallies, but they should be allowed free entrance and egress unmolested.

If the leftists (just like me, Patrick!) shouting at them had behaved like Cliven Bundy and his supporters, by phoning in bomb threats to local businesses and threatening local stockyards to prevent the sale of their seized cattle, then I would be very much in favor of the arrest and trial of the leftists, who are exactly like me. Hell, I should arrest myself.

(BTW, Cliven Bundy et. al are clearly leftists - you can tell by their behavior, and are therefore just like me.)

And if Hillary was a liberal, you'd have a point. Instead, what this shows is that the media has a "bribe politicians for favors" bias.

Do what Trump says, punch those people in the face. Our founding fathers were willing to die for freedom, you Trump sissies wont even stand up for yourselves. Sad

I could provoke Susan Boyle, and Captain Skully to punch me in the face and take turns kicking me in the ribs after I fell, if I tried hard enough and had every news network there for the footage.

Most moderate republicans I know don't want Trump to be President, just like all the democrats (who vote for democrats like Obama who might as well be a moderate republican 30 ears ago), but they don't go to his rallies to protest.

I don't know who those protesters are. Maybe they are paid actors ? Seriously, because what does a protester think they are going to accomplish by taunting people that are either total Trump fans or people that are checking him out. The only effect it might have is stirring up more hate from the Trump base, which is has been the basis of Trumps success from the start.

Yeah, Trump would never do that.

If they aren't hired to be part of his show, then those protesters are just an extreme fringe that have responded to Trumps inciting hate in a different way. They don't represent the typical person who would never vote for Trump.

Hillary Clinton reminisced about her days as first lady and a trip to Tuzla, Bosnia, she made in March 1996.

"I remember landing under sniper fire. There was supposed to be some kind of a greeting ceremony at the airport, but instead we just ran with our heads down to get into the vehicles to get to our base."

But that's not what happened, as demonstrated by CBS News video that shows Clinton arriving on the tarmac under no visible duress, and greeting a child who offers her a copy of a poem. The Washington Post Factchecker also turned a skeptical eye on Clinton's comments, reporting that a review of more than 100 news stories from the time documented no security threats to the First Lady.

hitlery you have nothing going for you and you have a sexual predictor for a husband.
hitlery you can't be trusted and you are a habitual liar.
hitlery ... even your party is finding out that you are not a worthy candidate.
hitlery your are losing to a SOCIALIST ... what does that say about you?
your new television ad is funny, how about we put up ads with your screaming and throwing various items from the Oval Office at bill. How about your shrill voice screaming at the American People and your scream at bill that he will not continue to embarrass you with is whoring around and then you destroying those women (the same women you say you are protecting) hitlery you can't have it both ways.

If you're bothered by candidates who lie, you're certainly not going to vote for Trump, are you? That would be a bit hypocritical.

lol--that's complete bullshit.

This is an article from 2011--long before any Presidential run.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/04/29/donald-trump-blacks-lawsuit_n_855553.html

"But Trump has been called out several times for racial insensitivity by former co-workers and civil rights activists. In 1991, Trump was accused of making racial slurs against black people in a book written by John R. O’Donnell, former president of Trump Plaza Hotel & Casino, called “Trumped!” O’Donnell wrote that Trump once said, in reference to a black accountant at Trump Plaza, “laziness is a trait in blacks.” He also told O’Donnell: “Black guys counting my money! I hate it. The only kind of people I want counting my money are short guys that wear yarmulkes every day.”

"Yet the most damaging episode in the saga of Trump’s fractured relationship with the black community came in 1973, when his family’s real-estate company, Trump Management Corporation, was sued by the Justice Department for alleged racial discrimination. At the time, Trump was the company’s president. Just last month, at Trump’s Comedy Central roast, Snoop Dogg referenced the case by joking about Trump’s potential 2012 run for the White House: “Why not? It wouldn’t be the first time he pushed a black family out of their home.”

The left has spewed hate since at least the 1970s. That's why the left has nothing to do with liberalism and liberals will have nothing to do with the left.

The left and the right are the same in everything but their pet peeves. Their tactics and ideology of cultural control are identical.

I'm glad you've decided for me before I have. I just want the facts to be straight here. If someone wants to vote for Trump--that's fine. But do so with your eyes open.

Clearly his Dad was a racist and probably had more to do with the issue than Donald did, but he was President of the company. With that power comes some responsibility as well. So, let's not pretend that this is some conspiracy to smear his good name.

He also has intentionally said racist things in this race, that nobody denies are racist.

He's appealing to a certain voting block and everyone knows that. He might not be a racist, but he play's one on TV.

So that meme is beyond stupid.

fucktard, it takes a pretty solid pattern of discrimination to show up on HUD's radar for racial discrimination in rentals.

So, he was racist then, he's racist now by his own words, but whatever…

Yeah-I think very few can vote/support trigglypuff! For me , I know Trump has his flaws, but he is the one talking about America first, job s, H1B, illegal immigrants taking low skilled American jobs, China decimating our manufacturing, the evil of free trade.
Bernie talks a lot, but I am scared of the socialist ideas-I think he needs to sell that better-as in not a Cuba/soviet type socialism.

I think the bulk of the repub base revolted against their religious nuts/super corporate types and are supporting Trump. if he does not deliver-there will be hell to pay for all. Where I am , I see people decimated by rust belt and just stuck here. But if tech jobs, scientist jobs, R&D jobs are all moving-what can we do?? Obozo keeps talking about college and education-but why go to college and incur debt when jobs are being off shored.

Bernie may represent the tea party phase of the dems-an utter revolt against the establishment-the NAFTA and the TPP types. Maybe the next candidate may be a Trumpian figure who can actually win-who knows the majority of America may unite against the politicians -leaving only the fringe on each side.

I would say if we are able to see past our labels- 50-70% want the same thing apart from abortion/gays etc.
