Violence broke out against conservatives at the Million MAGA March in Washington, D.C., on Saturday. The media ignored it almost entirely.
“I want to hear Joe Biden and Kamala Harris condemn Antifa/BLM criminals who assaulted and harassed peaceful demonstrators in DC today, including elderly and families,” political strategist Doug Stafford wrote on Twitter on Saturday. “Of course they won’t. And ‘media’ won’t make them.”
Of course they won’t. And “media” won’t make them.

A man is suffering from multiple stab wounds and at least 21 other people face criminal charges in the nation’s capital after Saturday’s “Million MAGA March” in support of President Donald Trump.
D.C. police say they recovered seven guns and are tending to two wounded officers following the rally.
“Watching video of people being assaulted and mobbed by BLM/Antifa in DC tonight brings back awful memories. Want an example of media bias? When Rand Paul and I spoke out about our mob assault, the AP reported our claim was ‘without evidence’ despite 10 minutes of video,” Paul’s wife Kelley Ashby Paul wrote on Twitter.

The Pauls were surrounded by what the senator described as a “crazed mob” after the Republican National Convention in August.
Rep. Lee Zeldin, R-N.Y., said the “media blackout” was “terrible” and “telling.”
“The President’s supporters have a right to peacefully rally supporting POTUS just like his opponents have that same right,” Zeldin wrote on Twitter. “The physical assaults today by violent leftists targeting his supporters is abhorrent. The near total media blackout of the violence is terrible… [and] telling.”

“When violent far left-wing extremists organize violence online, you can always count on the Twitter hall monitors to ignore it,” political commentator Mike Cernovich wrote on Twitter, calling members of the media “Antifa propagandists.”
Cernovich shared screenshots of NBC News’ Ben Collins and CNN’s Andrew Kaczynski tweeting about White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany’s response to the march and Kyle Rittenhouse, who allegedly killed two protesters and wounded a third during unrest in Kenosha, Wis.
Yep. Actual violence caught on video tonight – multiple horrific instances- and here’s what the media guys who REALLY CARE ABOUT EXTREMISM are posting.
