Aftermath of Barstow and Main Waukesha Parade mass casualty attack of Nov. 21, 2021

By John McClaughry

Last month there was an horrific report out of Waukesha, Wisconsin, where a crazed driver ran his SUV through a Christmas parade, killing six people.

Douglas Andrews at Patriot Post noticed how the event was described by liberal news media.

“Waukesha will hold a moment of silence today,” tweeted CNN, “marking one week since a car drove through a city Christmas parade, killing six people and injuring scores of others.”

Got that, writes Andrews? “According to CNN, a car drove through a city Christmas parade and took all those lives. A car. All by itself. Without anyone’s hands on the wheel. Without anyone’s foot on the gas pedal.”

“Similarly, on June 17, 2015, in Charleston, South Carolina, a Glock semiautomatic pistol opened fired during a Bible study at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church, killing nine people, all of them black.”

“If the mainstream media can report candidly on Dylann Roof, the young white racist who cold-bloodedly murdered those nine black worshipers, why can’t those same scribes tell the truth about the black man who murdered those six white people in lily-white Waukesha?”

“If a lie is defined as the failure to tell the whole truth, then CNN is clearly lying. The truth doesn’t support their narrative of noble black victims and evil white oppressors. The truth, though, is that a black racist career criminal and Black Lives Matter supporter named Darrell Brooks mowed down all those people in Waukesha.”

  1. The first Red SUV to be persecuted by the main slime media… because of silence
    on black crime… You can always count on tragedies which the snooze media don’t
    report the assailants race being caused by blacks.. If it isn’t a white (supremacist)
    it will get no mention from them.. if it is a white they will be called supremacist to fit
    the D/P agenda.. Best to not support them at all and get your news on line from
    multiple non main media sites.. shut off the boob tube as it’s controlled media barring
    a few independent minded reporters (Tucker Carlson, Jessie Waters, for analysis and Newsmax for least managed news)

  2. The USA is supposed to have a free and impartial press, the watch dog of the nation.
    These broadcasts news stations are regulated by the FCC, that is regulated by congress. It is painfully apparent that most of the so called main stream media isn’t free at all nor are they impartial. You can see it right here in Vermont also. That is anyone with a thinking brain can see it.

    My question is, if these news agencies can censor by omission, flat out lie, slander and act as a publicity wing of a political party is this a free press? Where is the oversight? Shouldn’t there be laws regulating a lying press or a slandering press? Why is there even a Federal Communications Commission or congressional committees to regulate, if they don’t regulate? CNN and MSNBC are out of control as are others. If the public is not informed with the whole story or the whole truth the nation becomes the useful idiots as noted in the 2020 election that was swayed by all the players in the media business.

    • Yes Dano the media was supposed to be the entity keeping the political
      wing in check instead of promoting/covering for one side and demeaning
      and lying about the other.. they’ve outlived (or more so perverted) their usefulness as a check
      and balance…
