AP Deletes ‘Offensive’ Tweet to Please Leftists, Gets Bashed By Leftists Anyway

Published

on

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 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?

Bill de Blasio Booed off Stage at George Floyd Memorial Event

Even New Yorkers are sick of the left-wing mayor.

Published

New York City mayor Bill de Blasio was roundly booed off stage during an appearance at a George Floyd memorial event on Thursday, with a raucous crowd drowning out the mayor’s remarks with boos and a torrent of profanity.

A Brooklyn pastor tried to encourage the crowd to treat de Blasio with respect, but he was roundly booed anyway.

De Blasio continued with his remarks, even though it was clear the crowd at the memorial didn’t want to hear from him. At points he couldn’t even be heard because the booing was so loud.

De Blasio’s as left-wing as they come, but he’s become increasingly unpopular in New York City for his handling of the Floyd race riots, which have surfaced in force in the already coronavirus-stricken city. Some New Yorkers are incensed with the curfew instituted to deter looting, and others are angry with the city’s total inability to deter the looting anyway. Governor Andrew Cuomo has already threatened to override de Blasio’s authority in order to put an end to the mass-scale rioting and looting in the city.

More than 700 rioters were arrested on Monday night alone, and more than 60 NYPD officers had to be hospitalized as a result of injuries sustained in the riots. The police department has increasingly given up on the prospect of restoring law and order in New York City, frustrated by de Blasio’s continual refusal to allow law enforcement to actually stop the widespread riots.
