Liberal repression of the news


Few media outlets report on an attack against Republican volunteers

Two Republicans are attacked as they volunteer for Texas Governor Greg Abbott

Mediaite tells us how two volunteers for Texas Governor Greg Abbott were attacked in Humble (north of Houston).

Two volunteers for Texas Governor Greg Abbott’s re-election campaign were attacked by a man near Houston, local officials told Fox News.

While door-knocking in Humble, Texas, the two volunteers were chased and attacked by a man who ripped the side view mirrors off their car, Abbott’s campaign said in a statement. He was reportedly arrested and charged with criminal mischief.

According to the campaign:

Yesterday, two Texans for Greg Abbott volunteers were assaulted by a man in the Humble while they were knocking on doors. The man chased the volunteers through a neighborhood, tried to drag them out of their car, and punched both side view mirrors off of the vehicle. The volunteers called police, who responded to the scene. After identifying the suspect, and finding pieces of the vehicle in his trash can, Harris County authorities took the suspect into custody and charged him with criminal mischief.

“Political violence is never acceptable,” Mark Miner, the communications director for Abbott’s campaign, said in a statement. “With just over a month until Election Day, the passion to win should never bubble over into something more dangerous. There is no place for this in Texas.”

Although the left always whines the most about our being able to protect ourselves, it has been the violent left that has hurt and killed

It has been the Left’s “bail reform” that has let felons onto the streets.

It was a loony Bernie supporter that shot Steve Scalise. It was a Democrat who ran over and killed a Republican teen.

However, we don’t know this (since this is not the focus of the media).

A media giant hides the story of a Republican teen being killed by a Democrat who held political grudges

CBS hides the alleged political motive behind a hit-and-run of Republican

Breitbart lays out the facts when CBS tries to obscure those inconvenient facts.

CBS News, a far-left propaganda outlet that spreads lies and conspiracy theories, is deliberately deceiving its readers about the reported motive behind the hit-and-run murder of an 18-year-old North Dakota man.

In the immediate wake of His Fraudulency Joe Biden declaring 65 million Trump supporters threats to America, 41-year-old Shannon Brandt deliberately ran down teenager Cayler Ellingson over a “political argument,” according to police reports. Police add that on the 911 call, Brandt accused the teenager of being “part of a Republican extremist group and [Brandt claimed] that he was afraid they were ‘coming to get him.’”

According to Ellingson’s mother, her son called her that night and asked if she knew who Brandt was. She did. Ellingson’s mother says her son called back later and said “he” or “they” were chasing him. After that, she wasn’t able to reach her son.

What makes this story a story is the alleged political motive, is the police reporting that this young man was run down for no other sin than being a Republican.

Because CBS finds that information inconvenient to the false narrative that only Trump supporters are violent threats to democracy, CBS chose to deceive its readers by not revealing the reported motive, which, per the police, was stated by the alleged murderer.

“North Dakota driver charged with fatally striking teenager says he purposely hit the teen after a political argument,” reads the CBS headline. Oh, okay … Please tell me more, CBS News. But wouldn’t you know it, nowhere does the story mention that the alleged murderer believed his victim was a dangerous Republican and a threat to him.

If this were a felon being held down by a cop

If, instead of a White Republican teen run over and killed by a Democrat who got out on bail within a week, a Black felon had been killed by a cop — would there be riots? Seems to me there were.

Seems to me that I not only watched Democrats riot for two years over that, I also saw:

  • A presidential candidate and his running mate contribute to the bail of felon rioters
  • Promises from Democrats that the riots would continue until they won
  • Televised ads this past weekend showing a female relative of the Black felon who died (where she said so much more needed to be done)

Since we are sinners, more needs to be done. All of us have a self-centered nature and look out for ourselves. Therefore, there will always be a need to help others. However, why is it always liberals that seem to ignore half of the equation?

A liberal company and its subsidiary uses financial discrimination to suppress dissention against radical gay agenda

“Gays Against Groomers” organization banned from PayPal and Venmo

Florida Voice reported on the discrimination against “Gays Against Groomers” by PayPal and its subsidiary Venmo.

The organization Gays Against Groomers announced they are banned from making any transactions with large payment processors PayPal and Venmo. 

Gays Against Groomers is a coalition of gay people created to stop the sexualization and abuse of young children. They were recently seen outside of a meeting with a digital billboard displaying anti-grooming messaging at a Miami-Dade County school board meeting.

The Miami-Dade School Board voted 8-1 against the H-11 action which would recognize October as ‘LGBTQ+ History Month.’ The proposal was rejected because parents believed it conflicted with the state’s Parental Rights in Education bill, which Gays Against Groomers also were not in favor of, saying it was parents’ right to decide whether to teach their children about gay and lesbian rights rather than teachers in public schools.

“We are an organization that consists entirely of gay people whose only mission is to safeguard children from abuse,” they say. “Woke homophobia is real.”

Moms for Liberty had a similar altercation with PayPal, having its funds frozen by the payment processing corporation. In August, DeSantis helped play a role in influencing the company to unfreeze their funds.

They said PayPal unfroze the money in the group’s account following Gov. Ron DeSantis’ announcement last week that Florida would crack down on “woke” banking.

I would hope that those gays who stand against grooming would speak out; however, it doesn’t seem the social media giants approve

If anyone has a voice that differs from the social media giants (as I do), they should expect to be minimized, defunded, and otherwise brought down.

Liberals pushing false narratives again (remember the Russian collusion hoax)

A TikTok influencer tells how a Democrat group offered to pay him $400 to push a false narrative

The Federalist outlines a case where a TikTok influencer was approached with an offer to push a false narrative.

A left-wing nonprofit focused on “fighting disinformation” allegedly offered a TikTok influencer $400 to spread lies about Republican involvement in the Jan. 6 U.S. Capitol riot.

Preston Moore, a lawyer with a large following on TikTok, told his followers in a video on his account that he was approached by the Good Information Foundation to make an “anti-Donald Trump propaganda post related to the January 6 investigation that is completely not true.”

After Preston said he was interested in collaborating, the foundation reportedly told him what to include in his post, including “images and scenes from the January 6th insurrection” and talking points like “the violence on January 6 was actually planned and paid for by Trump Republicans.” Specifically, the foundation told Preston he could say that the “Trump campaign paid literally millions of dollars to make January 6 happen” and that many Trump officials and Republican members of Congress were involved.

Other examples of “key messaging” Preston says the foundation highlighted for him to include was that “there is an ongoing threat of political violence or MAGA Republicans trying to overturn elections,” and that he should try to channel the anger of his followers to make them, as he summarized, “more likely to vote in the midterms.” 

When Moore responded to the email by asking, “What is the basis for the claim that the Trump campaign itself paid millions of dollars to make the January 6 siege of the Capitol happen?” he says the foundation refused to answer his question.

“We know of only one person who blew the whistle, but God only knows how many people are taking them up on this,” Scott Walter, president of Capital Research Center, told The Federalist. “Just how many TikTokers are they doing this with? How many Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook accounts are they targeting? How much money have they allocated? Because $400 is total chump change for these guys.”

Based on this, how much information can you trust from TikTok?

Then again, if I got my news from the source of the Tide pod challenge, maybe trust isn’t the central issue. Maybe I’m not really looking for information, but entertainment.

Again, a social media giant limits the conversation by removing a group

TikTok bans CatholicVote after they flag videos on LGBTQ agenda for kids

CatholicVote shows the hypocrisy of TikTok in their removal of CatholicVote.

The Big Tech video platform banned CatholicVote “for ‘hateful behavior’ after it posted videos calling attention to sexualized LGBT-themed children’s books and drag shows intended for kids,” reported Caroline Downey at the National Review:

While the platform has flagged the organization’s content in the past, today it was formally locked out from its account, Joshua Mercer, communications director for CatholicVote.org, told National Review.

TikTok had previously restricted the CatholicVote account on two occasions. 

In one video, CatholicVote intern Ethan Potter read passages of the “Pride”-themed book “Rick,” about a ten-year-old boy learning about sex and “gender identities” from an LGBTQ after-school program.

In the other case, CatholicVote posted a clip from a local news report about a drag event in Texas, where children were filmed interacting with an obscene performer. A woman who protested the event tells reporters in the video that she opposes drag events in general, but would not be getting involved if it weren’t for the children being exposed to it. “It’s kids now,” she says.

“It started with drag queen story hour, now it’s children’s books about sex and 10-year-olds throwing cash at grown men,” CatholicVote’s caption stated.

In both instances, TikTok claimed the posts were in “violation” of the platform’s “hateful behavior” policy. “We do not tolerate content that attacks or incites violence against an individual or a group of individuals on the basis of protected attributes,” read a notification sent to CatholicVote. “We do not allow content that includes hate speech, and we remove it from our platform. We also suspend or ban accounts that have multiple hate speech violations.”

Here, TikTok seems to show its CCP credentials

By eliminating the voice of CatholicVote, TikTok shows its origins with the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). 

Does this refer to the inclusion of conservative ideas or actual misinformation?

A report suggests that TikTok search results are riddled with misinformation

Detroit News mentions a report suggesting that TikTok searches result in multiple instances of misinformation.

TikTok may be the platform of choice for catchy videos, but anyone using it to learn about COVID-19, climate change or Russia’s invasion of Ukraine is likely to encounter misleading information, according to a research report published Wednesday.

Researchers at NewsGuard searched for content about prominent news topics on TikTok and say they found that nearly 1 in 5 of the videos automatically suggested by the platform contained misinformation.

Searches for information about “mRNA vaccine,” for instance, yielded five videos (out of the first 10) that contained misinformation, including baseless claims that the COVID-19 vaccine causes “permanent damage in children’s critical organs.”

Researchers looking for information about abortion, the 2020 election, the Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol, climate change or Russia’s invasion of Ukraine on TikTok found similarly misleading videos scattered among more accurate clips.

The amount of misinformation — and the ease with which it can be found — is especially troubling given TikTok’s popularity with young people, according to Steven Brill, founder of NewsGuard, a firm that monitors misinformation.

TikTok is the second most popular domain in the world, according to online performance and security company Cloudflare, exceeded only by Google.

Brill questioned whether ByteDance, the Chinese company that owns TikTok, is doing enough to stop misinformation or whether it deliberately allows misinformation to proliferate as a way to sow confusion in the U.S. and other Western democracies.

“It’s either incompetence or it’s something worse,” Brill told The Associated Press.

TikTok released a statement in response to NewsGuard’s report noting that its community guidelines prohibit harmful misinformation and that it works to promote authoritative content about important topics like COVID-19.

“We do not allow harmful misinformation, including medical misinformation, and we will remove it from the platform,” the company said.

Does this surprise anyone?

When the left (the source of the Russian collusion hoax, the golden showers hoax, and numerous other lies broadcast as fact for years) controls a media, they include lies. When the left (those who ignored the Hunter Biden laptop, Joe Biden’s Council on Foreign Relations “Well, son-of-a-bitch” admission on getting a prosecutor fired who was investigating his family, and many other oversights) controls the media, they sweep many things that would damn them under the rug.

  1. Since the top two stories (the attack on the two Abbott volunteers in Humble and the murder of the Republican teen) involve automobiles, have any of you heard a variation of the following:

    • Robert Francis (fake Latinex) “Beto” O’Rourke calls for a ban on all cars
    • Members of The View promise to either limit themselves to public transportation or walk everywhere they go until car violence ends
    • Joe Biden scribbles out an executive order banning the use of federal highways by “murderous vehicles”

  2. I believe this post is but the tip of that iceberg. Why anyone trusts the media simply blows my mind, but then people actually voted for, and elected, the worst president in our entire history. We must be geniuses.

    1. There are times when, at either Fix Bayonets or Searching History, the information is involved and complex. Rather than telling only half the story, or an abbreviated version that gives no credit to the events, I do two or mor parts. Since I only have five or six people who bother reading my blogs, it probably doesn’t matter — but I do understand about blogs in parts.
