Self-parody press: Violent Mich. protest reported as ‘mostly peaceful’


Oh, my. Media self-beclowning continues and, once again, Twitter was prescient. As Twitchy reported, lapdogs in the media ignored union thuggery and violence in Mich. They are far too busy inventing Tea Party violence! Twitter users just knew that the Michigan union thugs would be described as ‘mostly peaceful.’

waiting for @jammiewf‘s favorite phrase:”Mostly peaceful demonstrations”

Spooky … because, here we have it! You can’t make this up.

Actual News Report From Lansing: ‘The protests were mostly peaceful’

— JWF (@JammieWF) December 12, 2012

That’s right. The protests, full of violence and thuggery, were actually described as “mostly peaceful.” More from Jammie Wearing Fool:

We’ve been using that “mostly peaceful” gag for some time now, usually stemming from the violent Occupy rallies in 2011. Of course any time leftists agitators erupt into violence,–which is pretty much any time they get together–invariably there’s always some lamestream media outlet that calls the violence mostly peaceful.

There was a heavy police presence, but the protests were mostly peaceful. There were a few isolated incidents of clashes between protesters and police.

Dana Loesch, who interviewed Steven Crowder, a victim of a violent union goon attack, gives this alleged media outlet the business.

This is some of the most biased trash I’ve read in a long time: cc @toledonews

Hi @toledonews , why wasn’t this filed under op/ed? ,

— Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) December 12, 2012

Hi @toledonews and @bladeautowriter you think this is “mostly peaceful?” ,

— Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) December 12, 2012

You cowardly rat bastard media types.

— Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) December 12, 2012

Amen, sister!

Sane Twitter users who refuse to accept “mostly peaceful” as NewSpeak for “outrageous violent thuggery perpetrated by fellow travelers, thus must be covered-up,” don’t hold back. Truth to power, baby.

#UnionThugary in #Michigan over #RTW was a simple “bumping into” according to #MSM @mihousedems @usatoday @scrowder…

@dloesch @toledonews Hawaii was “mostly spared” in WWII

“Mostly peaceful” Lansing anti-choice protests. Except for the property destruction and a few assault and batteries. Sure, ok.

Bias: Union thugs punch conservatives, destroy tents: “mostly peaceful,” but when Tea Party sprays saliva: “marred by violence.” @jammiewf

— Razor (@hale_razor) December 12, 2012

@dloesch @toledonews apparently the reporter must have missed the thugs tearing down the tent or slashing it.

@datechguyblog The killing fields were mostly peaceful, except for a couple million dead

@dloesch Come here, @toledonews.I’m going to be “mostly peaceful” to your face.

— Hired Mind (@thehiredmind) December 12, 2012

@votermom @dloeschWhat does mostly peaceful mean anyway. Ted Bundy spent most of his days not killing people. Nonetheless

It means that the Fourth Estate is dead. Journalism, shmournalism.

@dloesch @toledonews in the eyes of pro-union rags video evidence doesn’t count I guess.

They have agendas and false narratives to push!
