They are probably stretching the definition of what a mural is in this case, but nonetheless the media are none too happy that a woman painted over part of the words “Black Lives Matter” in California.

This was revealed via video showing the woman, who the media are breathlessly describing by her race even though they never apply that standard to left-wing vandals.

You know who I haven’t seen the media describe as vandals, nor put any effort into identifying? Those tearing down 100-year-old statues across the country, including those of abolitionists and Founding Fathers. If a guy in a black mask and an anarchy A throws red paint on century-old Washington statute, it’s part of a “peaceful protest” against systematic racism. But let a white woman throw some paint on a two week old BLM screed and it’s suddenly all hands on deck.

Meanwhile, the media are still avoiding identifying the race of the man who ran over a woman and killed her in Seattle. Why? Because he was black and it was likely an accident, therefore it doesn’t fit the narrative. They’d rather continue to insinuate it was a white supremacist by being purposely vague in their headlines.

It’s almost as if the media are hopelessly biased, right?

The irony of the police being used to look for someone who vandalized the slogan of a group who supports defunding and abolishing the police isn’t lost here.

Laws for thee but not for me I guess.

Everything is so ridiculous right now. The media aren’t even attempting to present themselves as objective at this point and it’s driving the country further and further apart. All they had to do was report honestly on all the chaos and destruction going on and they just couldn’t manage to do it. CNN described Trump as “hyping up” statue destruction over the weekend, essentially asking you to not believe your lying eyes. Truth and facts simply don’t matter to these people.

Trump has an opportunity to take advantage of all of this and make this election a referendum on the radical left. It’s an open question whether he can remain focused enough to do so, but it’s his best shot at re-election.
