Self-parody press: Violent Mich. protest reported as 'mostly peaceful'

Oh, my. Media self-beclowning continues and, once again, Twitter was prescient. As Twitchy reported, lapdogs in the media ignored union thuggery and violence in Mich. They are far too busy inventing Tea Party violence! Twitter users just knew that the Michigan union thugs would be described as ‘mostly peaceful.’

Spooky … because, here we have it! You can’t make this up.

That’s right. The protests, full of violence and thuggery, were actually described as “mostly peaceful.” More from Jammie Wearing Fool:

We’ve been using that “mostly peaceful” gag for some time now, usually stemming from the violent Occupy rallies in 2011. Of course any time leftists agitators erupt into violence,–which is pretty much any time they get together–invariably there’s always some lamestream media outlet that calls the violence mostly peaceful.

There was a heavy police presence, but the protests were mostly peaceful. There were a few isolated incidents of clashes between protesters and police.

Dana Loesch, who interviewed Steven Crowder, a victim of a violent union goon attack, gives this alleged media outlet the business.

Amen, sister!

Sane Twitter users who refuse to accept “mostly peaceful” as NewSpeak for “outrageous violent thuggery perpetrated by fellow travelers, thus must be covered-up,” don’t hold back. Truth to power, baby.

It means that the Fourth Estate is dead. Journalism, shmournalism.

They have agendas and false narratives to push!

    Is anyone surprised at this “reporting” by these “journalists”? Our conservative/truthful media outlets must become stronger & more mainstream so the truth can get out there.

      But the voting majority is so brainwashed from decades of propaganda, how do we get the truth out there? Fox News is called “Faux News” and talk radio is thought of as “hate radio.” This is a much bigger problem than we ever imagined.

      We see the double standard and think, “It’s so obvious, how can they get away with it?” But we learned the cruel truth last month, they do.

    The fourth estate has become the fifth column. proceed accordingly.

      Let them march in column, the colonials showed the Red Coats just how bad that idea was on the way back to Boston from Lexington.

  • Grumpa Grumpus

    The Twin Towers were mostly untouched, and survived practically unscathed.

    They’re still mostly standing.

    Of course, I’m mostly joking.

    We’re besieged by cockroaches, it is sad, really.

    • SpinMeNot

      Nothing happened in Benghazi either, it was just a bit of … oh yeah, workplace violence.

      Holy crap on a cracker.


      • MoxieLouise

        It was just a bump (or four) in the road.

    • Jay Stevens

      The anti-Mursi demonstrations in Egypt were also “mostly peaceful”.

  • MoxieLouise

    There were faces bumping into fists and teeth flying out of mouths. But that was just clumsiness, mostly. Purely accidental.

    • mdtljt

      …kinda like MorOn the Younger “accidentally” beating the snot out of his girlfriend…got it…

      • MoxieLouise

        Exactly. Almost every day, girls end up with skull fractures and their heads in trash cans through some odd mishap. He’s a “good kid”, really he is.

    I’d say the American media is worthless, but it’s worse than that.

  • Josephine (D)

    The Toledo Blade is run by a left-wing loon who re-endorsed Obama this year. They’ve covered the a$$es of union thugs before; why not lie to do it?

  • Joseph Phillips

    Mostly peaceful should be reserved for news about the weather. The media are propagandists.

  • Daisy76

    This is one reason the conservative media must be able to provide “correction” to the so-called news that the left spews out.

  • Gregg Hammerquist

    I like how the the tent was said to have ‘collapsed’. Collapsed, torn down, it’s all the same.

  • Gregg Hammerquist

    “On the Capitol grounds, a big white tent erected for supporters of the
    legislation collapsed. There were no injuries, but union protesters
    reportedly helped bring down the tent.”

    They make it sound so nice!

      Carefully crafted ‘journalism’

  • Larry Gillreath

    “World War II was mostly peaceful, with some reports of light low-level skirmishes in several scattered locales in Europe, Asia, Pacific and North Africa.”
