Flashback: Christian Journalist Physically Removed from Presser During Obama Administration

Published

on

There’s been much hand-wringing by the mainstream press over the past week after petulant CNN propaganda man Jim Acosta had his White House press credentials revoked after repeatedly hijacking press briefings and then putting his hands on a female White House intern.

“Press Secretary Sarah Sanders lied,” CNN said. “This unprecedented decision is a threat to our democracy and the country deserves better. Jim Acosta has our full support.”

Now, video has surfaced of a 2009 incident when a black female Christian reporter was physically dragged out of a press area.

Reverend Brenda Lee was working for the Georgia Informer at the time, and she had a press pass for the briefing.

“All of a sudden, the staffer member – a male, white – left and this time he comes back with four people,” Lee said. “And so they said they wanted me to follow them, and it’s like, you know what, I’m here to get a story. What is the problem here.”

Video shows Lee being physically dragged out of the event by several Secret Service members. The Indianapolis Star was one of the few outlets to cover the event at the time. She reportedly wanted to ask the president questions about his stance on “traditional marriage.”

“And then the officer said ‘we can do this the easy way, or we can do this the hard way,'” Lee said. “One person immediately dropped out, but the other three persisted in dragging me past the press and back to the area where the security people were.”

There was no national outrage. There were no think-pieces from mainstream press outlets about what this meant for the state of the First Amendment and the freedom of the press in America. Why not?

Because it was Obama, the media’s darling, who ordered this abomination. Not President Donald J. Trump. Truly despicable.

Biden Rebuffs Advisors’ Demands to Censor OANN, Newsmax, Fox News By Executive Order

Biden advisors have sought to ban conservative media from federal housing.

Published

According to a White House source, President Joe Biden has rebuffed suggestions that he sign an executive order that would ban certain conservative news networks from being broadcast to federal housing complexes.

The order would’ve named One America News Network, Newsmax, and Fox News by name. The former two networks are known for a broadly pro-Donald Trump editorial stance, with Fox split between establishment liberal and conservative content.

Authoritarian liberals advising President Biden are said to have suggested that Biden crack down on television and media networks which dissent from the administration’s policy views, citing the raucous US Capitol protest earlier this month as an imperative to clamp down on the opposition.

The executive order in question would most prominently affect military housing, where the cable channels in question are accessible through cable services contracted through the military services. The order, which never progressed beyond suggestions to President Biden, may even have gone so far as to restrict the television channels from private housing organizations contracted to provide lodging to military service members and their families.

Biden even went so far as to dismiss the censorship attempt as “nonsense,” according to a White House source familiar with the exchange. It’s likely that attempts to sign and enforce it would’ve been shut down by the judiciary, representing a clear attempt to discriminate against the very viewing of political expression within federal buildings.

As an authoritarian streak grows more prominent in the intolerant attitudes of American liberals, it appears President Biden himself is at least skeptical to the slightest degree of governmental censorship attempts, although Biden has never so much as even made reference to the censorship practices utilized by Big Tech companies against tens of millions of Americans.
