Protester Falsely Smeared as White Supremacist by Journalist Photoshopping Sign

A photo of an anti-lockdown protester’s sign was photoshopped to make it look like the pro-freedom woman is a white supremacist.

A so-called journalist has been caught photoshopping a photo of an anti-lockdown protester’s sign to make it look like the pro-freedom woman is a white supremacist.

On April 20, Jill Cooper of Murrysville, Pennsylvania, attended a rally in Pittsburgh to protest the state’s continued draconian lockdowns that are destroying small businesses all across the state, according to AmericanThinker.

Before she hit the road, her husband reportedly made her a sign that read, “Free Small Business.” You know. To free them from the lockdown.

Cooper knows that these absurd lockdowns are destroying businesses that people have worked so hard to build. And she wanted her government officials to know her point of view… as is her right as an American citizen.

In any case, Cooper’s “Free Small Business” sign was photographed by Pittsburgh Post photographer Andrew Rush (seen in the photo in the upper right-hand corner of the tweet below).

But a few days later, the photo began making its way around the Internet in an altered form, one where Cooper’s sign was turned into a white supremacist slogan.

Journalist Andy Ngo took note of the doctored photo in a May 2 tweet. And he found the tweet from a so-called “journalist” Talia Lavin, who worked for the New Yorker

Cooper’s sign now read “Work Sets You Free,” which is the same slogan the Nazis used at concentration camps during WWII.

When she saw the photo of her sign having been altered, Cooper said, “I felt violated when I saw the photo. I couldn’t believe that someone would blatantly doctor a photo of me to make me appear as a Nazi supporter. How evil. What has world come too [sic] if you lie and distort to get your false message out about Trump supporters and OPEN PA protesters. I am just furious.”

This is far from the first time Lavin has used faked images and false claims to tar someone as a Nazi or a white supremacist. Lavin resigned from the New Yorker in 2018 after accusing ICE agent Justin Gaertner of sporting a “Nazi tattoo.” But, after she gained thousands of re-tweets with her accusation, she later admitted that the tattoo was actually the insignia of the U.S. Army unit he served with in Afghanistan.

Lavin likes to lie about people and tar them as racists.

CNN Announces Plan to Include More Race Pushing in Coverage of ‘News’

CNN has announced the creation of a new “race team” whose job will be to inject race-baiting in every story possible.

Published

CNN has announced the creation of a new “race team” whose job will be to inject leftist race-baiting in every story possible.

On Monday, the network’s chief, Jeff Zucker, sent out a memo to employees announcing the “new expanded race team” that will make race the focus in as many stories as possible from now on.

Zucker praised the network’s coverage as “powerful” and “emotional” and credited CNN with helping to “shed a light on the growing movement against institutional racism.”

“Today, I am pleased to announce that we are making an even more significant, sustained commitment to ensure race coverage is a permanent part of our journalism,” Zucker said in the memo, according to TVNewser.

“Many talented journalists around the organization work on or around race,” he continued, praising Sara Sidner, Mallory Simon, John Blake, Abby Phillip, and Brandon Tensley, and “dozens of CNN journalists who regularly report out stories on this beat across Digital, Newsgathering, our contributors, and beyond.”

“Race touches every aspect of our lives, and therefore every area of our coverage,” he said. “That work will continue. It must.”

“In that spirit, we are pleased to share the news of a new and expanded race team, which will contribute to all CNN platforms,” he announced.

“This team will build on what so many do already at CNN and will provide the needed structure to cover this beat with more focus and force,” he continued.

The team, per the memo, will “break news and cover the stories and conversations around race,” including what Zucker called “the systemic racism that the majority of Americans now acknowledge exists.”

Zucker insisted that the team will force racism angles into nearly every story to show “how race is intertwined with inequality in business, politics, sports, media, housing, healthcare, and education.”

Once again, we see that CNN believes it is its job to create fake news to fit a political agenda instead of reporting on actual events in an honest way.

No wonder CNN is now the lowest rated cable news outlet on the air.

‘New York Times’ Calls Mount Rushmore ‘White Supremacist’ Monument

The anti-American ‘New York Times’ is getting slammed for saying that Mount Rushmore is a monument to white supremacy.

Published

on

The anti-American New York Times is getting slammed for saying that Mount Rushmore is a monument to white supremacy and should be removed.

The paper ran a report with the headline “How Mount Rushmore Became Mount Rushmore,” which outlined how Trump’s July 4th celebration “invited even more scrutiny” regarding the monument’s history.

According to Fox News:

Along with the criticisms George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Theodore Roosevelt have faced in recent weeks, the Times reported the condemnation from Native Americans since the monument was built on indigenous land. It also noted how the sculptor Gutzon Borglum had “strong bonds with leaders of the Ku Klux Klan” and has a documented history of espousing white supremacist and anti-Semitic rhetoric.

The story was bad enough, but the tweet the Times sent out was far worse.

“Mount Rushmore was built on land that belonged to the Lakota tribe and sculpted by a man who had strong bonds with the Ku Klux Klan. It features the faces of 2 U.S. presidents who were slaveholders,” the paper tweeted.

Critics blasted the tweet:

Perhaps most amusingly, PragerU really gored the New York Times.

“In 1851, @nytimes founding editor Henry Jarvis Raymond published an editorial in which he supported a slaveowner’s legal right to recover his escaped slaves,” the website tweeted.

Eventually, the Times deleted the tweet.

‘New York Times’ Caught Lying Over Claims Russia Paid Taliban to Kill American Soldiers

The U.S. intelligence community was shocked when the ‘NY Times’ posted a fake news story claiming Russia paid the Taliban to kill Americans.

Published

on

Members of the U.S. intelligence community were shocked last Friday when the New York Times posted a fake news story claiming that Russia paid the Taliban a bounty for every American they killed.

But almost immediately, nearly every intelligence agency on all sides of the issue claimed that the story was false. Even the Taliban debunked it!

The story was published on June 26, and entitled, “Russia Secretly Offered Afghan Militants Bounties to Kill U.S. Troops, Intelligence Says.”

In the fake news, the Times said that an “anonymous source” inside the U.S. intel community told them that Russia hoped “to destabilize the West or take revenge on turncoats, had covertly offered rewards for successful attacks last year.”

The paper also claimed that both President Trump and Vice President Pence were told about this bounty system for dead Americans.

But the Taliban was the first to refute the idea.

Even in the paper’s article, the Taliban’s spokesman, Zabihullah Mujahid, said they had no “such relations with any intelligence agency.” He labeled the accusation as an attempt to “defame” the Taliban.

“These kinds of deals with the Russian intelligence agency are baseless — our target killings and assassinations were ongoing in years before, and we did it on our own resources,” Mujahid insisted. “That changed after our deal with the Americans, and their lives are secure and we don’t attack them.”

The Russians also came out saying they had no such program.

As for Trump, he said he’s never taken a briefing on any such Russian program.

“Nobody briefed or told me, @VP Pence, or Chief of Staff @MarkMeadows about the so-called attacks on our troops in Afghanistan by Russians, as reported through an “anonymous source” by the Fake News @nytimes. Everybody is denying it & there have not been many attacks on us,” he tweeted, adding, “Nobody’s been tougher on Russia than the Trump Administration. With Corrupt Joe Biden & Obama, Russia had a field day, taking over important parts of Ukraine – Where’s Hunter? Probably just another phony Times hit job, just like their failed Russia Hoax. Who is their ‘source’?”

Director of National Intelligence, John Ratcliffe, also said he confirmed that Trump and Pence weren’t briefed on any such Russian program.

The most telling part of this nonsense is also right on the Times story:

The intelligence assessment is said to be based at least in part on interrogations of captured Afghan militants and criminals. The officials did not describe the mechanics of the Russian operation, such as how targets were picked or how money changed hands. It is also not clear whether Russian operatives had deployed inside Afghanistan or met with their Taliban counterparts elsewhere.

Notice how the only thing the story is based on is the claim that the Russians paid for U.S. scalps. But there are no details, not even the smallest detail, about this supposed practice.

In other words, the New York Times published an entire story on an “anonymous” claim that every intel agency denies, that has no back up, even from the Taliban, and that contains not even the tiniest detail about the so-called practice.

Can you say fake news?

In fact, I’d dare say it is worse than mere fake news. It is what the Times HOPED would be happening. They’d love to see out troops assassinated for a bounty.

Black Trump Supporter Busts Fake News CNN Using Him as ‘Protester’

A black Trump supporter hilariously busted the lies of CNN wide open when he turned up at the president’s rally in Tulsa.

Published

A black Trump supporter hilariously busted the lies of CNN wide open when he turned up at the president’s rally in Tulsa only to have CNN use his photo as if he was an anti-Trump protester.

On Saturday, Right Side Broadcasting blogger Liz Williams ran across black Trump supporter Bruce Carter. During her short interview with the Trump supporter, the man told her that he found out that while he was in Tulsa to show his support for Trump, CNN was using his picture for other purposes.

At one point in her interview, Williams mentioned the media.

Upon the mention of the media, Carter said “but you just mentioned the news, so someone just sent me this clip with me on CNN sometime this morning.”

Carter showed Liz his cell phone upon which was a screen shot of a CNN report with Carter’s picture and a caption reading, “Tulsa Braces For Clashes.”

As it happens, CNN used the photo of Carter as if he was protesting against Trump.

Sadly, even Carter wasn’t surprised that fake news CNN so badly misused his image.

Here is the image that CNN used:

Newspapers Move to Capitalize ‘Black’ and ‘Brown’ — But Keep ‘white’ in Lower Case

“Journalists” are now moving to PC our language further by always capitalizing black and brown when talking about race, but purposefully NOT capitalizing white.

“Journalists” are now moving to PC our language further by always capitalizing black and brown when talking about race, but purposefully NOT capitalizing white for the same usage

A Chicago media critic recently announced that the Chicago Sun-Times is adopting this new usage. But the Times is only one of dozens of newspapers and “news” entities that are glomming onto this absurd activism this month.

According to Chicago writer Robert Feder:

The Chicago Sun-Times became the latest news organization to revise its style guide Monday by capitalizing the words “Black” and “Brown” when referring to “a culture, ethnicity or community of people.”

The style change, announced in an email to staff, follows similar moves by The Los Angeles Times, The USA TODAY Network, BuzzFeed News, NBC News, MSNBC and others.

“Our decision to capitalize Black is an acknowledgment of the longstanding inequities that have existed in our country, and the unique role that Black art and culture have played in our society,” Chris Fusco, executive editor of the paper, said in a statement. “Cultural trends among white people, e.g. Italian Americans, Irish Americans, etc., are more disparate, hence our decision not to capitalize white.

“We’re hopeful our readers will understand — and appreciate — this distinction.”

Here is how this fool explained it to his staff in an internal memo:

  • Whenever practical, we should strive to be as specific as possible when describing ethnicities in stories, e.g. African American, Latino, Latina, Asian and Native American.
  • We will capitalize the “B” in Black when referring to a culture, ethnicity or community of people. This puts the word on the same level as capitalized descriptors of people of color, e.g. Hispanic, Latino, Asian, etc.
  • In the event the terms Black and Brown are used to collectively describe a group, we will capitalize the “B” in both words, e.g. Black and Brown communities.
  • We will continue to lowercase the “w” in white, which is a wider descriptor of people of numerous origins. Of the city’s 4,767 firefighters and paramedics, 65.2% are white, 16.6% are Black and 15.9% are Hispanic.

This is all built on lies.

If you are going to capitalize black and brown because they are “races,” then you must also capitalize white. There is no logical reason other than racist, left-wing, activism not to capitalize white.

The truth is, black is not a singular thing. You can be black and be from the Spanish speaking world, and therefore be Hispanic. Not only that, but Africa is a whole, giant, damn continent, not a single group of people. There are dozens of religions, ethnicities, and peoples in Africa.

And “brown” is more like slang than black! There are literally hundreds of “brown” people scattered all over the world. And few of them have any ties one to the other.

I agree that “white” is “people of numerous origins.” But so is black and brown. And why is he ignoring “yellow”? Does Chris Fusco hate Asians?

This is not language. It is not clarity. It is not reporting. It is race-based, left-wing activism.

Welcome to “journalism.”

NBC Works with Foreign Groups to Force Google to Deplatform Conservative Sites — Then Botches Story

On Tuesday evening NBC posted a story showing how it worked with foreign groups to force Google to demonitize two conservative websites.

Published

On Tuesday evening NBC posted a story showing how it worked with foreign groups to force Google to demonitize two conservative websites, but then botched the details of its own story.

NBC News reporter Adele-Momoko Fraser cited the two foreign non-profit organizations and profusely thanked them for their “collaboration” in trying to force Google to demonetize two conservative websites, The Federalist, and ZeroHedge.

Fraser was deliriously happy that these anti-American foreign entities helped her attempt to destroy two perfectly mainstream American conservative websites by destroying their source of income.

NBC then went on to report that the two sites had been banned from Google ads because they posted “racist articles” about the ongoing Black Lives Matter protests.

As Breitbart News noted: “Fraser noted in her article that NBC News had been responsible, in part, for Google’s decision to demonetize The Federalist: ‘Google blocked The Federalist from its advertising platform after the NBC News Verification Unit brought the project to its attention. ZeroHedge had already been demonetized prior to NBC News’ enquiry, Google said.'”

But it turns out that NBC botched its own “gotcha” story. Google later reported that The Federalist had not been banned, but only warned.

Even worse for NBC’s fake news report, neither site had been confronted over “racist articles.”

Instead, the two sites were warned because of the intemperate posts by readers down in the comments sections.

Regardless, how is it “journalism” for NBC to target website they don’t like and then agitate for their destruction? That isn’t reporting on the news. That is activism to MAKE the news.

As you can see, once again the media is proven to be an enemy to free speech and the American way.

Democrats Push Faked Photo of ‘Dark White House’ to Slam Donald Trump During Riots

On Tuesday, left-wingers and Democrats began pushing a fake photo to attack Trump, with the chief culprit being two-time loser, Hillary Clinton.

Published

On Tuesday, left-wingers and Democrats began pushing a fake photo to attack Donald Trump, with the chief culprit being two-time loser, Hillary Clinton.

The fake meme consisted of a photo of the White House during the Obama years all lit up in the radical gay “rainbow” colors. That photo was juxtaposed with one purportedly taken during the Trump years and showed a White House in the dark.

To this, Clinton added the caption “Elections matter.”

But the whole meme is a lie. The White House under Trump was never dark like that. Indeed, the image was dated 2015. Who was president in 2015? Obama.

Worse, the photo Clinton shared had been altered.

Per Washington Examiner:

The original image was uploaded to Getty Images’s iStock photo website on Dec. 21, 2015, though it is unclear when the photo was taken. In the photos shared on social media, it has been edited to make the portico hanging lantern and several other lights around the White House appear to be off.

The Associated Press fact check said that according to its own photos of the White House taken Sunday night, the front was “illuminated by exterior lights and the portico lantern [was] turned on” while the interior was dark.

That didn’t stop a host of left-wing Democrats from tweeting the lie.

Many others, including New Jersey Rep. Bill Pascrell, a Democrat, shared the image while claiming that Trump turned off the lights as Secret Service transported him to a basement bunker Friday amid violent protests outside the White House.

David Axelrod, a former adviser to President Barack Obama, also shared the tweet on Monday. “Perfect symbolism. If ever the country needed the occupant of the White House to shed light, and not heat, now is the time. Sadly, the lights are out,” he said.

And there you have it. Democrats are liars.
