Rarely a day goes by when you don’t find CNN covering up the insane violence erupting in the streets of American cities, but they really took it to the next level on Tuesday night. Reporting live from Kenosha, Wisconsin, where riots are churning in the wake of Jacob Blake’s shooting, a CNN reporter attempted to downplay the raging fires behind him in the background.
But what really caught everyone’s attention was the unintentionally hilarious chyron running across the bottom of the screen. It was there that viewers learned that the Kenosha protests were “fiery but mostly peaceful.”
It’s almost difficult to get angry when the left is this incompetent.
“What you’re seeing behind me is one of multiple locations that have been burning in Kenosha, Wisconsin, over the course of the night,” the CNN reporter said. “A second night since Jacob Blake was seen shot in the back seven times by a police officer.
“And what you are seeing now, these images came and come in stark contrast to what we saw over the course of the daytime hours in Kenosha and into the early evening, which were largely peaceful demonstrations in the face of law enforcement,” the reporter continued. “It wasn’t until night fell that things began to get a little bit more contentious, things were thrown back and forth. Police started using some of those crowd disbursal tactics like teargas, even playing really loud sounds to push them out.”
Oh dear, not loud sounds!
“And then, what you are seeing, the common that ties all of this together, is an express of anger and frustration over what people feel like has become an all too familiar story playing out in places from across the country, not just here in Kenosha, Wisconsin,” the reporter concluded.
Propaganda only works, of course, when it isn’t so obvious. You can’t actually show burning buildings in the background and then convince Americans that the protests are peaceful. You can’t just say “Jacob Blake” over and over again and convince Americans to turn away from the fact that he had a knife in his car. Every single one of these “unarmed black man” stories turns out to be a lot more complicated upon further review, and yet the media runs the same narrative every single time.
How long will Americans keep falling for it?
