The Associated Press learned the hard way Monday that it is impossible to please the angry grievance-mongers on the political left.
“We’ve removed an
@AP tweet from Oct. 21 that said a migrant caravan in Mexico was ‘like a ragtag army of the poor.’ That wording was poorly chosen and has been removed from our coverage of the caravan,” the news organization said.
In short, AP was shamed by the political left into deleting its prior coverage because the leftists found the words “offensive.” But the retraction did not deter the leftists, who will always find something to be outraged about.
“And then repeated [the wording] in our retraction. Just in case you missed it the first time,” said Twitter user Janet Johnson in response.
“Even ‘caravan’ feels to me you’re not looking at this from a purpose of the actions by a group of displaced individuals’ perspective but hey here we are,” said Twitter user Andriaan Bester.
This reporter has no idea what that sentence even means, other than that Bester does not like the word “caravan” being associated with the foreign invaders.
Speaking of “invaders” a Twitter user called “The Hoarse Whisperer” was displeased with AP’s wording.
“‘Hi, we made the suffering and underprivileged sound like invading militants and just in case you missed, here it is again.'” You’re class acts, AP. Class. Acts.”
These people must be a bundle of fun at parties.
Perhaps the AP has learned a lesson today. Bending a knee to social justice warriors never works. Why bother?
SICK: University of Rhode Island Professor Erik Loomis Believes There’s “Nothing Wrong” With Murder of Aaron Danielson
Why is he still teaching?
A University of Rhode Island professor argued that there is “nothing wrong” with the murder of Portland conservative demonstrator Jay Danielson last month on his personal blog. Danielson, a Patriot Prayer demonstator, was murdered by “100% ANTIFA” militant Michael Reinoehl. Reinoehl admitted to the murder shortly before being killed by US Marshals, who sought to apprehend the homicide suspect when he wielded an assault rifle.
Loomis,who identifies himself as a historian on Twitter, rebutted an argument citing that Reinoehl admitted to murdering Danielson. On a blog comment, he wrote, “he killed a fascist. I see nothing wrong with it, at least from a moral perspective.”
He went on to elaborate in his defense of the murder in a later blog comment.
“Yes, sometimes violence is necessary, say to avoid greater physical harm, i.e. self-defense, or to defeat a literal army of fascists who are trying to kill people. But, ideologically, I think the idea that violence is good if it’s against our political enemies is a core part of fascism, and so the ideological opposition to that idea should be its opposite – that violence as a general rule is bad, unless the specific context of that situation requires a violent response.”
Reinoehl laid in wait in a Portland parking lot to ambush and murder Aaron Danielson during a Patriot Prayer caravan through the city, chambering a handgun before he even approached Danielson. He was charged with second-degree murder in the killing, although his death at the hands of law enforcement serving his arrest warrant ensures he won’t face a trial for his actions.
Loomis has gone on to accost anyone who challenges his endorsement of the murder as a “fascist.”
That's right. And no fascists will intimidate me either. Including you.
