The Media’s Hypocritical Coverage of Today’s Violence

President Trump today strongly condemned the violence that took place at the ‘Unite the Right’ rally in Charlottesville, VA, but nothing that Trump says is ever good enough to satisfy the mainstream media. The ‘Unite the Right’ rally was planned months in advance as a peaceful protest, with organizers going through all of the proper channels to obtain the required legal permits to exercise their first amendment rights at Emancipation Park – the site of the statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee that is scheduled to be torn down. Then, a few days prior to the rally, the city of Charlottesville (in an attempt to suppress their free speech) used a heckler’s veto to rescind the permit – claiming it would place “undo pressure” on the police. ‘Unite the Right’ organizer Jason Kessler demanded an emergency hearing in Federal Court and on Friday evening won a temporary injunction allowing the rally to go on.

Today, as bus loads of Black Lives Matters counterprotestors showed up in an attempt to shut down the rally using violence – the police department should have done its job to protect the ‘Unite the Right’ protestors who had a legal right to be there. Instead, the police department ordered the rally an “unlawful assembly” and threatened to arrest everybody – totally ignoring the judge’s ruling and blatantly violating the first amendment rights of the ‘Unite the Right’ protestors. After forcing peaceful ‘Unite the Right’ protestors into the streets, violence ensued between them and the Black Lives Matters counterprotestors.

The mainstream media praised the Black Lives Matters counterprotestors for showing up without a permit and causing today’s violence, and attacked the ‘Unite the Right’ protestors by calling them terrorists. After President Trump strongly condemned today’s “hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides”, he was attacked by the mainstream media for not specifically criticizing the ‘Unite the Right’ rally, which the media referred to as a “white nationalist” rally. According to the media, if a crowd chants “black lives matter” it’s a civil rights march but if they chant “white lives matter” it’s a white supremacist march.

Take a look at how the NY Times described President Obama’s condemnation of the Black Lives Matters riots that occurred in Baltimore on April 28, 2015 and compare it to the article they published this evening criticizing Trump’s “vague” condemnation of today’s violence.

A number of people do obtain notice that they have been officially dumped by their own insurance company and many have to struggle to get more insurance after a cancellation. Affordable auto insurance rates usually are hard to get after a cancellation. Understanding the main reasons concerning the auto insurance termination can help car owners prevent sacrificing one of the most important privileges offered.
