Hillary Clinton VS Donald J. Trump – Biased Media Edition [Meme]

It was an accident 800

Via William Teach:

So, Donald Trump, surprisingly, said something very inarticulately. I know, you’re shocked that someone off teleprompter could say something poorly. Funny, the media never made a big deal out of some guy saying “If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun”, in which the full quote is even more violence laden

“If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun,” Obama said. “Because from what I understand folks in Philly like a good brawl. I’ve seen Eagles fans.”

Anyhow, stories abound. Liberals are vexed. Here’s the NY Times Editorial Board, to go along with several other stories at the Times, including another opinion piece by Thomas Freidman (Oh, and Joe Scarborough just went with “dog whistle” twice in 20 seconds, his guest went with Orwellian. And Joe says it’s a suggestion of fascism and revolt. And crossed a Rubicon. I should probably stop listening while typing)

Further Into the Muck With Mr. Trump

Three months from the presidential election, and one day after his running mate promised “specific policy proposals for how we rebuild this country at home and abroad,” Americans find themselves asking whether Donald Trump has called for the assassination of Hillary Clinton.

On Tuesday at a rally in North Carolina, Mr. Trump falsely charged, as he has before, that “Hillary wants to abolish, essentially abolish, the Second Amendment.” Then he added: “If she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do, folks. Although the Second Amendment people, maybe there is, I don’t know.”

Directly behind him, a supporter’s jaw dropped. Afterward, Mr. Trump’s campaign issued an utterly mystifying statement about the “power of unification,” suggesting that Mr. Trump was referring to the political power of Second Amendment supporters, and was not advocating violence. The National Rifle Association, which has endorsed Mr. Trump, concurred with his statement on Supreme Court justices and did not specifically address the rest of his remarks.

Let’s be clear: if Hillary or another Democrat made this statement, the press would be in full cover mode, explaining this away, much as they’ve done for Hillary’s email server, her coughing, pretty much everything.

Was it a threat? Mr. Trump’s campaign has been marked by extraordinarily combative rhetoric. At another rally, he said he would like to punch a protester in the face and see him leave “on a stretcher.” His supporters have shouted “kill her” when he mentions Mrs. Clinton. The Republican convention heard cries of “lock her up.” A New Hampshire delegate, Al Baldasaro, called for Mrs. Clinton to “be put in the firing line and shot for treason.”

Um, there were plenty of cries for “lock her up” at the DNC, as well.

Seldom, if ever, have Americans been exposed to a candidate so willing to descend to the depths of bigotry and intolerance as Mr. Trump. That he would make Tuesday’s comment amid sinking poll numbers and a wave of Republican defections suggests that when bathed in the adulation of a crowd, Mr. Trump is unable to control himself.

Because no Democrat would ever do something like sick his followers on someone. No Democrat would use the power of the State to violate the rights of opposition groups. No Democrat would speak out against private citizens and groups, such as the Koch brothers, the NRA, Rush Limbaugh, for engaging in their 1st Amendment Rights. The list of abuses, bigotry and intolerance, is long.

What Trump said was stupid, and most non-unhinged people would understand that he didn’t say that Hillary should be assassinated. He was speaking in Typical Buffoon. It’s what he does.

Meanwhile, Hillary’s non-sanctioned, insecure email server potentially led to the death of an Iranian nuclear scientist, for which the media went into full cover mode.

Regardless, I’m awaiting the media to finally make a big deal out of Obama’s extreme violence laden “If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun” quote.
