In Wing Nut News: Laura Ingraham Blames Mainstream Liberal Media For Shootings Of Black Men

On the April 14 edition of the Ingraham Angle, Laura Ingraham told Texas Republican race-baiting clown Allen West – who back in December released a statement calling for Texas to secede because the SC wouldn’t nullify legal votes for Biden – that the mainstream media is telling black people, giving them the message that “you’re going to be shot if you’re pulled over, so run!”

Young black men today are being told over and over again by a – by a dominant media, a corporate media, that if you’re pulled over by the police, they’re going to shoot you. Are they not being told – basically sending that message to young black men, that you’re going to be shot if you’re pulled over, so run? Run, leave, speed away – and that’s when you have problems. You had it with George Floyd, who resisted arrest. You had it in this case. It’s tragic circumstances, it’s horrific, but they’re running away.”

“That’s part of a Marxist propaganda tool that the left is using,” the GOP clown agreed with her.

I have never heard a single left-leaning corporate media news anchor or commentator telling black men, or sending them a subtle message, that cop’s are going to shoot them if they don’t run. There have however, been many conservative media commentators – Ingraham among them – who have told their viewers time and time again, that police are non-violent, that black people are violent, are thugs and criminals, who want to riot and loot, and kill people. They send this message to their viewers when they tell them that Black Lives Matter are violent, that they’re terrorists, when they talk about black on black crime.

They’re not all running away. Jacob Blake didn’t run. He attempted to enter his vehicle. George Floyd didn’t run, neither did he resist arrest. If he did, it must have been while Chauvin had his knee pressed firmly into his neck.

Those who are running from the police, just might be doing so because they know that if they don’t run away, it’s because they know they will be killed. It is law enforcement that is sending this message, and it is clowns like Laura Ingraham that enable it.

In National News: Female Officer Who “Accidentally” Shot Duante Wright, Charged With Manslaughter

In National News: Female Officer Who “Accidentally” Shot Duante Wright, Charged With Manslaughter

The police officer – Kim Potter- who fatally shot twenty-year old Duante Wright Sunday afternoon in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, during a routine traffic stop, has been charged with second-degree manslaughter.

Potter, a twenty-six year veteran, resigned from the BCP on Tuesday. On Wednesday she was released on a 100,000 bond. She could face up to ten years in prison if convicted, a 20,000 fine or both.

Brooklyn Center police released body cam footage of the incident, in which Potter and the other officer present – Anthony Luckey – were attempting to take Wright into custody. Potter can be heard shouting,”Taser, taser, taser! Holy shit, I just shot him!” Potter is alleged to have mistaken her firearm for a taser.

They were attempting to take Wright into custody over a warrant that had been issued on April 02, according to a report by the Star Tribune. Wright had failed to make an initial court appearance in March on misdemeanor charges of carrying a gun without a permit. The charges were from a June 2020 incident in which Wright attempted to elude the police, also a misdemeanor.

The Wright family has retained civil rights attorney Benjamin Crump, who was also the attorney for the George Floyd family.

At a Tuesday press conference, Benjamin Crump said, “It’s unacceptable. It was intentional they stopped him. It was intentional they used the most force. They could have given him a ticket. That’s what they do in traffic citations. It reminds you of George Floyd. They could have given him a ticket for that. But when it’s black people in America, they engage in the most use of force and it ends up with deadly consequences. And that’s why we’re here today.”

A statement by the Wright family reads: “While we appreciate that the district attorney is pursuing justice for Duante, no conviction can give the Wright family their loved one back. Driving while black continues to result in a death sentence. A twenty-six year veteran of the force knows the difference between a taser and a firearm.”

In The News: Liz Cheney Says Gaetz Allegations Are “Sickening,” But No Comment On Whether He Should Resign

In The News: Liz Cheney Says Gaetz Allegations Are “Sickening,” But No Comment On Whether He Should Resign

During a weekend interview with CBS’s Margaret Brennan, Republican Representative Liz Cheney called the allegations against Matt Gaetz “sickening.”

Gaetz is the the Republican Congressman who has been alleged to have been involved in inappropriate behavior with a minor, and is currently under federal investigation into the allegations against him. The House Ethics Committee has also opened an investigation.

Gaetz was accused last week of paying an associate Joel Greenberg – who has also been alleged to have trafficked in sex with a minor – the amount of 900.000 via the Venmo app. Greenberg is reported to have sent the same amount to three young women for “tuition or school.”

When asked by Margret Brennan if she would call for Gaetz’s resignation, she offered no comment.

“Speaker Pelosi just said it’s up to your party to take responsibility for Congressman Gaetz, who as you know, is undergoing an ethics investigation. Are you ready to call for his resignation? Or are you going to wait?”

Cheney: “You know, as a mother of daughters, the charges certainly are sickening. And as the speaker noted, there’s an ethics investigation underway. There are also criminal investigations, and I’m not going to comment further on that right now.”

The interview ended at this point, with Cheney refusing to comment on the Gaetz situation. Which is odd since she had plenty to comment on Trump’s role in the assault on the Capitol.

“There’s no question the president formed the mob, the president incited the mob, the president addressed the mob. He lit the flame,” she told NBC news just after the assault.”

Which is also odd, since prior to being asked if she intended to call for Gaetz’s resignation, she had this to say on the event at the Capitol.

“Look, January 06 was clearly an attack that was an attempt to stop the counting of electoral votes. I just listened to speaker Pelosi say that, quote, right now we’re in a good place. We’re not in a good place. We absolutely need, and it is her responsibility to create a commission to study what happened, to understand what the ‘provocation’ was, to understand what happened to make sure it never happens again. After every major crisis in this country whether it is September 11th -“

Confusing, since back in January, she was sure Trump was responsible for the events at the Capitol. And if that’s the case, why would she be calling for Pelosi to form a commission to determine what happened? Everyone knows what happened. She voted to impeach Trump after the events at the Capitol, but has nothing to say about Gaetz’ innapropriate involvement with a minor?

One would think she would have plenty to say if he we’re a Democrat.
