Funnyhow you guys seem to be on a different page.
Simple observation concludes than 95% msm does not cover left wing violence in a consistant manner. I cant put it in simpler terms for you.

False accusation...it was in the Washington Post. It was on NPR. It was in the NYT. It was on my local news.The AP covered it. It was given air time, as well, on several outlets, that I am aware: ABC, CBS, NBC, BBC...Probably more.

It happened July 14th. Perhaps you don't get your news from credible news organizations and sites, and that is why you missed the reporting of this incident?
Not what the article in the OP was saying.

It is very easy to imagine how a similar attack, with political loyalties reversed, would have been reported. In fact, you don’t have to imagine it: Look to last year’s Cesar Sayoc “pipe bomb spree,” which became a referendum on whether President Trump’s “violent rhetoric” somehow encouraged violence of this kind. Conservatives warned then, and should say again now, that tying lone attacks by obvious lunatics to some kind of aura cast by controversial politicians is a toxic kind of discourse which needlessly and dangerously escalates the moral stakes of political disagreement.

what the hell are you babbling about? crisis actors?

no, you didn’t read it. If you had you would know that the premise was not that there was NO coverage, but that it was so minimal.

I know people who know the ICE facility bomber (small rural community, everyone knows everyone), and consensus is that he was always too intense, and that, for personal reasons, he intended to commit suicide by cop. No, I don't know anyone who thinks that was a good idea. Among other reasons, it's not at all fair to the cops.

I have no doubt he hated Trump and Hannity, but that doesn't appear to be what motivated him to carry a bomb.

i saw the age and that set off alarms..Antifa is anti-fascist which i agree with however just as one had peaceful civil rights leaders and violence supporting ones..history shows violence is NOT the answer....


the age was a tip-off to other issues lol!
