Conservatives Are In Danger; Democrats, Media Helped Put Them There, by Katrina Pierson, an adviser for Donald J. Trump for President Inc.
CNN’s Jim Acosta recently declared himself a candidate for the most out-of-touch person in the country. “I’m very worried that the hostility whipped up by Trump and some in conservative media will result in somebody getting hurt,” Acosta tweeted after being subjected to a “CNN sucks” chant during a Trump rally.
Acosta’s lack of self-awareness is reflective of the mainstream media as a whole. Liberal journalists may fear the dystopian fantasy they’ve concocted in their heads, but outside of their self-aggrandizing bubble, it’s Trump supporters and conservatives who are routinely harassed and attacked.
And the hostility whipped up by the reckless rhetoric of Democrat leaders and their collaborators in the media is largely to blame for this travesty.
Last week, conservative activists Charlie Kirk and Candace Owens were attacked by a mob of liberals affiliated with Antifa while eating breakfast. Just the week before, a Massachusetts woman intentionally rammed her car into another car because it had a Trump bumper sticker on it. …
There follows excerpts from the long and growing list, then:
These attacks aren’t new, either. Trump rallies throughout the 2016 presidential campaign were mired in violence. Trump supporters were attacked at rallies in California, and violent, anti-Trump “protesters” in Chicago showed up with such force and intensity that a Trump campaign rally there had to be shut down.
Ever since Donald Trump first secured the Republican nomination for president, the mainstream media pushed a steady stream of propaganda comparing President Trump and his supporters to the most evil characters in the history of the world, including those guilty of genocide.
For over two years now, the Democrats’ media henchmen have been spreading this message of fear, trying to convince vast swathes of Americans that Trump supporters threaten their way of life. Meanwhile, radical Democrats such as Kamala Harris and Maxine Waters employ “resistance” rhetoric that risks further encouraging violence against the Left’s political enemies. …
In their zeal to subvert a sitting president, the mainstream media and the Democrats are stoking a wave of political violence that hasn’t been seen in this country for decades.
