For decades now, we in the United States have been trained to watch and listen to specific experts and pundits to find out how we should feel or think about any one person, incident or issue. In 2016, with a presidential candidate able to speak directly to the people for only the second time in fifty years, the media’s influence is reduced to talking to the few who are actually still paying attention to them. In the gatekeeper role, this election cycle, the mainstream media has told their followers that one candidate, Donald Trump, is just a hate-mongering, racist, violence inducing misogynist ignoramus who has all the grace and class of a bulldozer.
(Okay, I embellished a little at that last modifier.)
Without having watched much of the mainstream media’s coverage of Trump rallies – including Fox – there is no way to judge just how honest, trustworthy and thorough the reporting has been. Well, one black cop, Brandon Tatum, a good citizen who wants to be informed on the issues before deciding on who to vote for (GOOD FOR HIM!), was curious and attended a Trump rally in Tuscon, Arizona. At this point, Trump is being targeted where ever he is. In the ten minute video below, this gentleman gives a first hand account of what he saw and heard while he was there, and it bears no resemblance to the narrative being pushed by the organs of influence.
Let’s just say it: this cop gets it. It’s not Trump or his followers that are the issue, or the people inciting violence, it’s the protesters. THEY are the ones in the wrong. They are the ones violating the civil rights of peaceful assembly and speech. They are interloping on a privately paid for and held event. THAT is what is NOT being reported.
Thank you so very much to people like this cop who are willing to speak out and give witness and testimony to the truth. Thankfully, enough people have now viewed this video that if it does get scrubbed and blocked from the various social media platforms, there can be no denying it exists.
