Far-left extremists are tearing apart the country and Democrats are doing nothing about it.
Even worse, the so-called mainstream media have largely turned a blind eye.
Now CNN said something about the rioting that will make you pull your hair out.
The death of George Floyd has spurred protesting and rioting and looting across the country.
The Democrats and their media allies have been invested in egging on the protesters.
During the recent Democratic National Convention, Barack Obama said that protesters were “the best of us.”
Joe Biden’s running mate Kamala Harris told protesters during an interview with Stephen Colbert not to let up.
The Democrats have been stoking the protests for months, but they made a big mistake.
They started a movement that quickly turned violent and they haven’t been able to control it.
In a desperate attempt to hide the radicalism of the protests, the so-called mainstream media have routinely called the protests “mostly peaceful.”
But as the dead bodies pile up and the carnage becomes more difficult to sanitize, the press’s narrative around the rioting is falling apart.
In one of the most absurd moments, CNN tried to convince viewers that the protests had been “mostly peaceful.”
You cannot make this up… A CNN reporter is standing in front of a building engulfed in flames and CNN’s chyron reads:

This isn’t even the first time something so absurd has happened.
MSNBC’s Ali Velshi called the violent protests “mostly peaceful” even though a building burned behind him.
Over 99% of the liberal media coverage of the protests has sanitized the violence, but that’s becoming increasingly difficult to do.
Several cities have been left in shambles as a result of the violence.
In Minneapolis, one police precinct was literally ceded to Antifa terrorists who immediately razed it to the ground.
Parts of Minneapolis now look bombed out, and progressive enclaves even complained to the New York Times about increased crime and homelessness encampments.
Despite liberals’ lofty ideals, the facts of life remain stubborn.
The American people can only be deceived for so long before they discover the truth.
Telling Americans that there’s nothing wrong when cities are on fire and people are getting killed is why trust in the so-called mainstream media is at historic lows.
They used up so much goodwill, and they’re struggling to get it back.
If they want to regain trust, they’re going to have to drop the absurd “mostly peaceful” line, but they just can’t help themselves.
