As the war of hatred against the president rages on, real damage is being done to people’s lives by it.
One of the most damaging things that the left-wing media does is to offer fame and notoriety to anyone who picks up a gun and kills a bunch of people. We’ve have been trying to tell the media for years that their insistence on publishing the name and faces of killers, using emotive language describing the body counts and modes of death inflicted on the victims encourages copycats. There has not been a widely publicized shooting in the last 20 years that hasn’t had copycats leaping into action within days.
But they don’t listen. If they did, they would miss out on all those tasty advertising dollars. And they wouldn’t be wrongly credited for forwarding the war on gun rights.
This isn’t the only direct harm that the media does with its selective and deceptive coverage. Right now, there is a situation underway in South Africa with the potential to evolve into genocide. Farmers of Dutch and British heritage who have lived there for generations, tending the land and providing food for the whole region are under attack from local thugs. The local government has openly authorized the seizure of their land without compensation. This has emboldened murderous criminals who are never punished.
The story was reported on briefly and President Donald Trump sent out a tweet on the subject. Shockingly, every other news outlet immediately condemned the coverage as racist.
But here is a South African man who will tell you the truth first hand, and the pain behind his eyes is gut-wrenching.
