It takes a village to raise a false narrative



It takes a village to raise a false narrative

The Left finally figures out how to blame Trump for Pittsburgh while blunting the effects of the illegal invasion.

Sometimes it’s quite fascinating to watch a story grow from the ether with the various sources adding their input to the construction until it coalesces and emerges as a theme or trend in it’s own right. In the case of the Pittsburgh shooting, the various factions in the media have struggled to develop a coherent narrative that will properly exploit the issue.

The tragic events of Saturday posed a difficult proposition for the nation’s Left and the national media [but we repeat ourselves]. This was a fine opportunity to capitalise on recent events and distract from the ‘crazy Democrats’ as Claire McCaskill’s campaign termed them. It was two-fold problem for them in exploiting the pain and suffering of others for maximum political advantage:

  1. How can they blame this on President Trump?
  2. How can they blunt the effect of the illegal invasion columns on the midterm election?

Hardly any mention of Gun Confiscation.

Being this close to the midterms, the issue of gun confiscation was almost immediately off the table. Although they did plug their favourite confiscation precursor: Intergalactic Background Checks [Or label variations – Universal, Enhanced or expanded] as usual. The Left certainly knows it’s audience, one can almost hear the whispers ‘Ikes snay on the gun ban ray’ to another who brought up the subject. They know that most people support the common sense human right of self-defense, so trying to deprive people of that right at this point in time was non-starter to be sure. Not that there are still a few pockets where the Left has managed to wring a few more infringements out of the 2nd amendment.

Never let a serious crisis go to waste.

Of course, those words must have echoed in Leftist ears as they strained to come up with an alternative exploitation of a crisis that they helped foster. Their next choice was to use this to denigrate President Trump, but then it came out that the murderer opposed the president. Worse yet, the people involved didn’t want to cooperate in this media narrative. Not that they didn’t try with some very creative headline writing that implies he’s the issue:

Some Pittsburgh residents want Donald Trump to stay away from their city

Trump to visit a Pittsburgh scarred by violence at synagogue

But this wasn’t the case, given the fact that the murderer was anti-trump and that the Rabbi from synagogue wouldn’t take the bait and blame the president.

The next target of opportunity: Free speech.

Having come out of the authoritarian closet as of late, the nation’s Socialist-Left next turned it’s ire to something they despise almost as much the human right of self-defense or the president: Free Speech.

First on the chopping block was the alternative to twitter: Gab. Yes, those who still pretend to be ‘Liberal’ quickly called for it’s suppression in the wake of the crisis. Soon enough, the speech platform’s corporate supporter quickly fled the scene, taking it off line.

That this happened so quickly should give pause to anyone who true champions of Liberty. Recall that it took several weeks in the previous instance for the ‘boom’ to be lowered on those opposition voices to the Left deemed to be unworthy of speaking in the electronic public square. This time around it only took a day or two before the most recent spate of repression to take place.

Never to let ‘Liberal’ label [implying support of Liberty] to stand in their way, Leftists have lined up a new target for their repression after taking down Gab: Instagram Is the Alt-Right’s New Favorite Haven.

Serendipity at last: Blame Trump for the proper words in describing the ‘caravan’

Reference a portion of the Oxford English Dictionary definition of the word Invasion:

1.1An incursion by a large number of people or things into a place or sphere of activity.
1.2An unwelcome intrusion into another’s domain.

Clearly, the Left found it’s ‘sweet spot’ in exploiting the mass murder in the Pittsburgh synagogue, use it to deflect the profoundly embarrassing issue of the illegal invasion while blaming the president. Simply tie the use of certain words to the tragedy and Viola! They managed to bring down two birds with one stone, they can attack Trump and certain media sources while going after politically incorrect words at the same time: Pittsburgh suspect echoed talking point that dominated Fox News airwaves.

(CNN)In the search for answers after the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting, there is newfound scrutiny on the suspect’s social media posts and how his anti-Semitism merged with a hatred of immigrants.

While there is no such invasion happening, this rhetoric has blanketed right-wing media in relation to the Central American migrant caravan that’s been in the news this month.

With this linguistic sleight of hand, they have now denigrated one of the most apt words for what could potentially take place while tying the President to a murderer.

Or there is this story for the Pravda of record: How Trump-Fed Conspiracies About Migrant Caravan Intersect With Deadly Hatred

MURPHYSBORO, Ill. — Alicia Hooten thinks the country has plenty of problems. “So many; so many,” she said warily, before settling on the one at the top of her mind with the midterm election just a week away. “I feel like we’re fighting for our freedom when it comes to our borders.”

She spoke while waiting for President Trump’s campaign rally on Saturday, hours after the deadly shootings in Pittsburgh. Ms. Hooten, a graphic designer from nearby Sparta, Ill., said she was especially concerned about the caravan of migrants in southern Mexico, calling it “a ploy to destroy America, and to bring us to our knees.”

Or this from that paragon of journalistic objectivity: Chris Matthews Suggests Connection Between Trump’s Migrant Caravan Rhetoric, Synagogue Shooting.

MSNBC host Chris Matthews suggested Monday night that the link between President Donald Trump and Saturday’s synagogue shooting need not be explicit to exist.

During the closing minutes of “Hardball,” Matthews, speaking into the camera, argued that, though there is no definitive proof of Trump’s responsibility, his rhetoric may have influenced a shooting at a synagogue in Pittsburgh. In particular, he linked Trump’s critical comments about the migrant “caravan,” a group of thousands moving through Mexico, to the gunman’s decision to murder Jews.

The Takeaway.

There is a vast difference between a conspiratorial plot and a collaborative effort. The present case is very much the latter in the present day national socialist media. One source will posit a narrative, with others seeing it’s effects and efficiency in furthering the cause. Others will follow on with other talking point tests until they all see the perfect solution and push it for all it’s worth.

It doesn’t get any better for the Left when they can use one news story to denigrate their favourite target while blunting that which proves President Trump correct on this issue.
