They say 87% of statistics are made up. The problem with that statement is that if mainstream media puts out a statistic, 100% are made up. The same can be said about narratives as they pertain to President Trump, law and order, or just about anything that has to do with politics, culture, or religion. They have an agenda driving the narrative, and that agenda is working against the truth.
One of the most egregious examples of this in recent weeks is the ongoing and ever-evolving riot narrative in Portland. At first, they pretended like there were no riots at all. Then, once the Department of Justice sent in federal law enforcement agents to protect federal property, the narrative shifted to the notion that there actually were riots, and those riots were in response to the federal law enforcement’s presence.
This is, of course, an idiotic lie to tell because the riots started a month BEFORE federal law enforcement showed up in Portland. For mainstream media to say the riots were caused by federal law enforcement assumes they were fortune tellers divining the future. But the biggest lie came when federal law enforcement left. Here are some examples:
- WaPo on July 31: Trump ordered federal forces to quell Portland protests. But the chaos ended as soon as they left.
- Al Jazeera on July 31: Portland calm as federal agents hand over to local police
- NPR on August 6: Portland Protests De-Escalate As Federal Agents Leave City Streets
Here’s the problem. There was no deescalation. The riots didn’t end. Calm didn’t return. In fact, the riots got worse and have continued to get worse for over a month since mainstream media heralded the so-called “rebuke” against President Trump.
In the latest episode of the Rucker Report, JD breaks down what has happened and why mainstream media continues to distort the activities in Portland. If they admit there are riots, they’d have to admit the riots didn’t end as the media said they did when federal law enforcement pulled out of Portland over a month ago.
Portland riots started before federal law enforcement got there and they continued long after they left. They’re still happening today, but mainstream media swore to us they ended when “troops” were pulled out. This is fake news.
