USA – -(Ammoland.com)- Two media responses could be heard when Donald Trump reached out to minorities and reminded them that decades of Democrat leadership had not worked for them and their children.
The first response was to refute the charge. ”Most black Americans don't live in poverty, just as most white Americans don't.”, wrote the Washington Post. And the rest of the media followed suit.
They ignored the fact of violent ‘hot spots‘, that is, the fact that violence is not spread evenly over our country. They ignored the presence of our out-of-control inner city poverty in areas ruled by Democrats whose only program for improvement seems to be a constant call for more, and stronger, gun control.
The second response was an expression of horror that Trump had not visited minority communities. All media outlets were horrified because the message was misplaced. ”How dare Trump ignore blacks and Hispanics!'‘, they parroted to each other.
We know that the future can usually be predicted from past actions. So let us predict.
Because there have been riots at previous rallys this political season, and because the more violent ‘Black Lives Matter' group would be in close proximity If Trump takes media advice and brings his message of a better future to inner city minorities, there will be riots.
Some people may be harmed or killed – maybe even law enforcement personnel. And then the media will bitterly complain about Trump's responsibility for the violence and blame him for poor judgment and irresponsible plans.
And then, we can predict, if even one person is arrested with a gun…the media will have the chutzpah to demand stronger gun laws.
The vicious liberal media circle will continue, as Edward R. Murrow rolls over in his grave.
