    Dear Mainstream Media, Don’t You Dare Whitewash Anti-Trump Violence

    Dear Mainstream Media, Don’t You Dare Whitewash
    Anti-Trump Violence

    By David French

    Last night, anti-Trump protesters rioted in Costa Mesa, California. Yes, rioted. That’s what you call it when “demonstrations” turn into this:

    Or this:

    Just imagine for a moment the shrieking outrage if Trump supporters had tried to flip a car outside a Hillary Clinton rally. Imagine the fury at the sight
    of a bloody man wearing a Hillary shirt. So how did the mainstream media cover the anti-Trump riot? Hot Air’s Larry O’Connor has the details:

    Check out the LA Times headline: Protests rage outside Trump rally in Orange County; 17 arrested, police car smashed.

    Maybe it’s me, but if your headline includes the phrase: “police car smashed,” perhaps you should go ahead and call it a riot and not the benign and righteous sounding “protest.”

    The Times write-up of the ugly violence begins with more apologetic language: “Hundreds of demonstrators filled the street outside the Orange County
    amphitheater where Donald Trump held a rally Thursday night…”

    “Demonstrators”??? This is a very deliberate use of language. When you have a righteous cause, you’re a “demonstrator.” The Times is using language
    equating these thugs with someone marching in Selma. “Demonstrators” sounds heroic.

    The Washington Post used the morally-neutral term “clashed.”

    Trump protesters clashed with police officers here after a campaign rally Thursday hosted by the Republican presidential candidate.

    It’s just a clash, folks. Who knows how it started? Then there was this tweet from an L.A. Times reporter:

    Ruben Vives Verified account ‏@LATvives

    It appears the #DonaldTrump storm has passed #CostaMesa

    David Jones ‏@Jones3400 Apr 29 @LATvives Riot caused by Anti-Trump protestors. Thugs trying to disrupt a peaceful assembly.

    I’m sorry, but an anti-Trump riot is not a “Donald Trump storm.”

    Let’s state this as plainly as possible: Nothing Trump has done justifies a violent response. Nothing. Yet the more the media whitewashes this violence
    and applies its typical double standard to left-wing thugs, the more the violence will escalate.

    Clearly the media sympathizes with these Mexican flag-waving crowds in much the same way that it sympathized with the rioters at Ferguson and
    Baltimore. But when you excuse political violence, you tend to get more of it. We know leftist radicals aren’t shy about taking so-called “direct action”
    to intimidate opponents. We also know that at least some Trump supporters are spoiling for a fight. Trump himself has been spoiling for a fight. We risk
    the worst political violence in a generation. Am I wrong to believe that some in the media are thrilled at the prospect — so long as the Left is leading
    the charge?

    Donald Trump is not spoiling for violence. He hasn't caused any of this. The sole reason we have anti-Trump protests is because of illegal aliens and sympathetic immigrants glorified by those trying to destroy our country with illegal immigration, massive excess legal immigration and bad trade deals. Trump Supporters are not responsible for this, this is all at the hands of illegal aliens, immigrants and those sympathetic to both.

    It's time for legal immigrants who are US citizens to stand with Trump and demand an end to illegal immigration. It's time for Muslims who are US citizens to stand with Trump and demand an end to an open door policy to Muslim immigration when they have not been properly vetted.

    It's very simple. Once you become an American, then you are only an American. That's it. That's the way it's been since this country was founded and that's the way it must remain. Americans will not tolerate an invasion of foreigners into our country whose loyalty is to another country and another group of citizens. Period.
