ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE: Associated Press Blames the ‘Brutal Colonial Past’ of France for ‘Inciting’ Muslim Terror
The Associated Press (AP) has proven yet again why the fake news media is the enemy of the people, essentially blaming France for the wave of Islamic terror that is sweeping the country.
The offensive, anti-Western tweet, which has since been deleted by the AP, can be seen here:
The AP was immediately roasted for their extremely offensive and callous tweet blaming the victims of Islamic terrorism in France for their own plight:

This is an abhorrent take. Killing teachers and nuns is a response to secularism, Macron and France’s “colonial past”?

Hey, remember Salman Rushdie? Why did HE incite anger in the Muslim world? Was it his brutal colonial past perchance?

Always reminding the European "brutal colonial past"…
It's time that they excuse themselves for the brutal invasion on half Europe during centuries!! (from s.VII to s. XIX).
But they'll never do it 'cause they are willing to invade Europe again.
That's the point.

Brutal colonial past during 80 years what about arabic colonisation during 600 years in Spain. Submission

In my vast Christian country, we have suffered our eons of colonial muslim past, but we don't and we won't go about beheading people and setting them on fire for desecrating our symbols, or for having enslaved, butchered, raped, and sold our progenitors in maghreb. Explain that!

Some people lost their lives in barbaric attacks. But somehow, French people have to be sensitive because of their colonial past and whatever BS is written. Yeah right.

AP attempted to massage the language when they re-published a similar tweet to promote their article after deleting their initial tweet:
This replaces a tweet about France and the Muslim world that asked why France “incites” anger. The word was not intended to convey that France instigates anger against it.
— The Associated Press (@AP) November 1, 2020
It wasn’t any more well-received that their first incendiary message:
It is EXACTLY what you intended

You’re saying "colonial past" as though Muslims are against the actions incurred during colonial days? Even though they continue those actions into present days? So they’re the only tribe that gets to act in that manner?

If only you had a wordsmith within your organization? Oh, wait… you did mean the intent, you just couldn’t take the heat. The real story is why in 2020 a group of people will resort to beheading people because their feelings are hurt.

Splitting hairs. You still choose to position this scenario as if France is the problem, and not the religious extremists who are beheading French citizens in broad daylight. Yellow journalism, at its finest.

The whole premise is ridiculous. Any country that adheres to secular values is a target of religious extremism. It’s not their values that are the problem, it is the values of those who murder in the name of their god.

Obviously @AP intended to say that France incited the anger because that's the only reasonable reading of the original tweet.

"This word we chose to convey a specific meaning was not intended to convey that meaning."

The article itself is not much better than the offensive tweets, as the AP desperately tries to make excuses for Islamic terrorism. They actually have the nerve to claim that staunch globalist French President Emmanuel Macron is some kind of anti-Muslim hardliner.
They contend that “a law Macron plans to introduce to crack down on Islamist fundamentalists he contends are turning some communities against the state and threatening pillars of French society, including schools” is what is inciting the Muslims, who refuse to assimilate to the nation they are intent upon invading and overthrowing.
“The words the president uses have provoked outrage as well. He said the planned law was aimed at Islamist “separatism,” which raised fears of the further alienation of French Muslims,” the AP added.
Big League Politics has reported on the extreme bias and lack of integrity from the AP in the past, such as when they muted a rape victim’s truth to protect the Democrats:
The Associated Press admitted in a report on Tara Reade’s allegations of sexual assault against Joe Biden that it interviewed the former Senate staffer in 2019, only to decline publishing the interview.
The AP claims that it “declined to publish details of the 2019 interviews at the time because reporters were unable to corroborate her allegations, and aspects of her story contradicted other reporting.”
The news organization claims that the interview was later “deleted” in accordance with practices related to old material. However, notes from the interview reveal Reade’s account regarding to Biden engaging in behavior such as touching her shoulders and neck and playing with her hair.
It’s questionable that such an interview was thrown out on the basis of it supposed lack of corroboration, considering Reade did veritably work as a Senate staffer at the time. Some of Reade’s associates have since come forward to corroborate hearing of the claims at the time.
Reade’s allegation is unproven, and we can’t rush to accept anything as fact on the basis of it. The best possible option is to investigate evidence and witness accounts, and AP’s deletion of its interview seems to have disregarded the journalistic imperative to do exactly that.
The AP discussed a Senate report Reade had filed as a Senate staffer about Joe Biden’s conduct, and the news agency claimed the report she had filed didn’t include any reference of sexual harassment or assault. Reade herself denied the AP’s claim about the interview that had buried, stating that the report she filed referenced such conduct.
The AP is synonymous with mainstream news reporting, which is probably why the industry is dying a pathetic and humiliating death.
