Gold Star Families: Rioters Pushed Us, Spat On Us

And none of the media is reporting on it, except FoxNews.

Mary Katherine Ham did bring it up on an opinion panel on CNN -- but she's not a reporter, and I don't know if I'd call her "media" in the way I mean it. And her entire point was that the media -- including CNN, where she was speaking from, which pretends to care so much about Gold Star families -- wasn't reporting the story.

“I think we can all agree that the tone of protesting yesterday was different than today,” Ham said. “This is a nonpartisan organization holding this ball, they work for a non-partisan foundation and are Gold Star families, but when they went in they were surrounded by protesters and they were spit upon and cursed at — on the way in and the way out.”

“They were shaken, but fine — but [it’s] very disappointing,” she added.

“I don’t think this characterizes the march and the movement that we saw out here today,” she said. “I want to be careful about that because I think that that’s something people have unfairly done to conservative movements in the past and to Tea Partiers, where you pick one thing and you go: ‘Look at those awful people out there, their concerns should be dismissed.'”

“But this is part of the story, as is Madonna saying she thinks about blowing up the White House,” she said. “Those are not great things. If it were a conservative movement, we would hear a lot about it. If you don’t think that the left has some prejudices of its own that can lead it very astray like it did last night in that instance, then you’re wrong. And if you think that that’s not part of the reason many turned to Trump, then you’re also wrong.”

A guy at the Philadephia Inquirer was then spurred to write about the incident, but obviously, the media is not exactly lining up to make this the Story of the Day.

Video at the link.

In fact, there's an awful lot of bad behavior by leftists that their fellow leftists in the media aren't covering but are instead covering up.

Gee, I wonder why.

And that's not even to mention a leftist setting a female Trump supporter's hair on fire.

Newsweek just published a post explicitly approving of political violence, titled "The Infinite Joy of Watching a Nazi Get Punched in the Face, Set to Music." This video showed a black-balacava'd anarchist sucker-punching "Indentarian"/Nazi Richard Spencer. And Newsweek thought it was so, so funny.

They've now deleted this post.

Former White House aid Jon Favreau said that every time a video of a Nazi geting punched in the face is posted, he'll laugh about it.

A leftist shot a man outside a Milo speech, claiming his victim was a "Nazi." (He wasn't -- but what would it matter if he was?) The school in question wasn't bothered by the shooter -- but wanted to know why Milo had been permitted to speak there.

The left, and the media (but I repeat myself), is increasingly forward-leaning about justifying violence against political actors they don't like, apparently not realizing they are political actors people don't like.

Way to think it through, guys.
