Your life is not in danger because some people yell and hold up a “CNN sucks” signs. You look absolutely silly to most Americans when you try to present yourselves as valiant warriors risking your lives daily to stand around at the latest Trump rally. It’s just dumb. Besides, much of the elevated temperature in our discourse today can be directly traced back to the media themselves. They should try taking some responsibility for that before another unhinged leftist shoots up a group of duly elected representatives on a ball field or something.
Keep in mind, there’s never been one attack at a Trump rally on a journalist. NONE. There hasn't even been an attempted attack. There hasn’t even been a hint that someone might attack a journalist. Somehow, all that translates into their “lives” being “in jeopardy at these rallies.” What makes it even more ridiculous is the hypocrisy of the media. These same media members could hardly find outrage at Antifa shouting obscenities, physically assaulting Trump supporters, or blocking roadways. They have barely a comment when conservatives on college campuses are shouted down and forced to flee for their own safety. These are the same media members that have labeled DJT “literally Hitler,” called his supporters racists, and proclaimed that millions will die due to nominal policy changes. It’s the same media that has (at least indirectly) incited violence against Republicans with their sensationalist garbage and near constant demonizing of conservatives.
They've spent the better part of two years stoking conspiracy theories about Russia that have whipped up incredible acts of incivility. Many media members have personally attacked Trump supporters as dumb, toothless, idiots in no uncertain terms. These same networks will run uncritical coverage of resistance protests rife with “F*** Trump” signs everywhere, screaming lunatics, and pussy hats. Lest we forget, much of the very same media spent all day yesterday defending the New York Times and their hiring of Sarah Jeong, who’s racist screeds over a two year period on Twitter are as vile as it gets. But civility, am I right?
None of that ever motivated the media to be concerned about a climate of hate or incivility. It's not the heckling of a reporter that's a threat to The Republic. No, it's media bias reporting, hate-filled round-table panel rhetoric, and verbal assault disguised as news that is the real threat to the Republic.
