You know the world is upside down (as if you didn’t already) when most American media (leftist media) defends the actions of thug, terrorists, rapists, murderers over the actions of your commander in chief. As this has become a regular occurrence, most followers of conservative news outlets are used to it, but the average Joe, soccer mom, disengaged citizen might miss the “nuance.”
We’re here to tell ya, it’s outrageous. And it needs to stop. While Trump is furiously working to drain the swamp, the media is working in like fashion to throw roadblocks in his way, at every turn.
The Federalist has a great outline of these events, via Twitter.
News outlets including the Associated Press and The New York Times took comments from Trump regarding MS-13 gang members out of context Wednesday, misleading readers to believe he referred to immigrants generally as “animals.”
When these outlets and journos were called out for their extremely misleading reporting, many of them chose to defend MS-13 rather than walk back their criticism of Trump. This is a gang with the motto, “kill, rape, control.”
Twitter is the new liberal media go to for conservative hate.
however repugnant their actions, MS-13 gang members are human beings IMHO

Trump: “These aren’t people. These are animals.”
No one would condemn these words more than Jesus Christ.
Christians who don’t condemn these words don’t understand their own religion. https://t.co/VJwrbYdKne

Even if he was referring to the tiny percentage of immigrants who commit crimes, his efforts to conflate criminals with all illegal immigrants is repulsive, as is calling any human being an “animal.”

Gee, I dunno, Keith. I would refer to rapists and murderers as animals, too. Why wouldn’t you?
Trump referring to human beings as "animals" is the same dehumanization tactic used by slave traders and slave owners to justify the oppression of black people for hundreds of years. https://t.co/6LY6XJwFH4

Murderers, rapists, and animals. This is how the President views undocumented immigrants. These degrading words are also how despots around the world dehumanize those they persecute.
The only protection? A vigilant citizenry and the rule of law. https://t.co/hSATf0OxCV

When all of our great-great-grandparents came to America they weren’t “animals,” and these people aren’t either.

These were just a few examples in The Federalist piece. There were many more. Please tell me I’m not the only one who sees the warped “logic” (and I use the term loosely) in comparing legal immigrants, to cold blooded murderers and rapists.
