Award Winning Journalist: It Has Become ‘Too Dangerous’ to Cover US Political Events

Published

on

Award winning independent journalist Tim Pool, who is widely celebrated for his unbiased presentation of events, has announced that he does not believe it is safe for him to cover US political rallies due to escalating threats from antifa, as well as escalating trolls from the right.

“When I go to these events who are creepy stalkers who are conservative leaning trolls and then there is antifa sending me threats, it’s just become too weird,” Pool told Big League Politics.

In a video statement, Pool noted that most of his coverage is international — from Sweden to Ukraine. He is also known to occasionally cover domestic events, however, including the free speech rallies and riots in Ferguson and Baltimore.

“On the antifa side, I get death threats, they post lies about me, they make up crazy stories accusing me of being a fed,” Pool begins. “I was forced to flee Venezuela because some of these activists thought it would be funny to convince people in Venezuela that I was a spy.”

He explained that he has had people attempt to get into his Ubers, his home address emailed to him, and on Saturday — someone sneaking up on him attempting to steal his hat. He stated that while stealing his hat is generally meaningless, it presents the possibility that someone may sneak up on him and hit him.

“The antifa guy assaulted me, it was verbal — the conservative troll actually grabbed me,” Pool told BLP. “One was meant to be harmless fun, but now I am on edge because people think they can come up and put their hands on me.”

He noted that while he has had to deal with some creeps on the right — only members of the far left have actually threatened his safety.

“The extreme right has never threatened or attacked me,” Pool told BLP. “I have never been physically attacked by the extreme right, only the extreme left. However, it isn’t just one issue that is making it clear that it is reckless to show up without security — and I don’t want security.”

On Saturday, supporters of President Donald Trump gathered in Boston to hold a free speech rally. Pool was in town to cover it when someone from the free speech side snuck up behind him and attempted to snatch the hat off his head, he was also verbally attacked by a member of antifa.

“If you put your hands on me I’ll knock your teeth out, I don’t give a fuck who you think you are,” Pool told BLP. “The only reason I didn’t in this case was because we had the entire Boston PD surrounding us. If I had, I would have been the one to be arrested.”

“You have people in antifa saying ‘punch a Nazi,’ and then people up on that hill were calling me a Nazi — on the livesteam people were saying that I am a Nazi sympathizer and that I’m a known alt-right person or whatever,” Pool said.

Pool is one of the rare journalists who does not publicly express his political views and will criticize both sides. Sadly, this has made him a target of more extreme members of both sides.

“I’m at the point where people feel welcome to come up and put their hands on me,” Pool said. “Are people on the left going to think it’s okay to come up and punch me in the face?”

Due to his increased notoriety, Pool believes that he now faces a serious threat at domestic events — where as internationally he is rarely recognized. He explained that he does not want to be part of the stories he is covering.

Lexington, Kentucky Mayor Proposes Defunding Emergency Rental Assistance to Fund Critical Race Indoctrination

What a waste.

Published

on

The mayor of Lexington, Kentucky has aroused community backlash after supporting a proposal to fund implicit bias training for city employees using funds previously appropriated for coronavirus emergency rental assistance.

A left-wing housing group wants Mayor Linda Gorton to fund racialist implicit bias training by defunding the city’s police department, as opposed to stripping a rental assistance program instituted to help Lexington residents in the midst of the coronavirus recession.

Gorton’s critical race indoctrination program has an estimated investment of $120,000. Funding for the program is expressly removed from a remaining $240,000 allocated earlier in the year for rental assistance.

Gorton is yet to respond to criticism over her plan to defund housing assistance for left-wing ideological training.

Other national progressives have fought to implement left-wing critical race theory trainings even as the American public reels from the effects of the coronavirus pandemic. President Donald Trump signed two executive orders this year banning the use of divisive “trainings” by federal agencies or government contractors. Sources working with Joe Biden’s purported transition have indicated that the neoliberal Democrat will reverse the executive orders if he’s inaugurated, reinstalling critical race theory in government.

It’s hard to think of a more apt representation of luxury progressivism, defunding common-sense rental assistance for beleaguered people in order to enrich a woke ideologue for giving anti-white lectures.
