Don't you hate it when a hit piece goes bad?
According to "The Freedom First Network,"
That’s what The Daily Beast and freelance journalist Robert Silverman attempted to do with a piece titled, “How Big-Time Right-Wing Trolls Tied Waukesha Killings to BLM.”
Sometimes, it's hard to see your own prejudices. And that, unfortunately, is particularly true of the left.
The story is an blatant attempt to gaslight their leftist readership into denying that Brooks supported Black Lives Matter. He did. It’s not even a question to anyone who has seen his social media posts over the years, of which Ngo reported several. But Silverman makes ambiguous distinctions to misdirect his readership, noting that there is no evidence that Brooks participated in BLM movement activities. As he noted in the article:
None of those posts, or others floating around online and purportedly shared by Brooks, display anything resembling participation in the Black Lives Matter movement. In other posts, he expresses hostility towards white people, gives a thumbs up to a Black nationalist group, and cheers the removal of statues, along with others justifying his previous crimes and sharing his untalented rap music.
The story is a bit complicated. But here is what the article at Freedom First says, in part.
Brooks, like millions of other Americans, supports Black Lives Matter. And like millions of other Americans, that support does not necessarily translate into them going to BLM rallies or participating in any of the riots attributed to the group over the last year and a half. But Ngo never claimed that Brooks was an active member of the group who participated in their activities. He rightly reported that Brooks is a supporter of not only BLM but other origins of sentiment that echo hatred towards white people, law enforcement, and government.
The piece published by The Daily Beast is a smokescreen. It’s designed to convince their most gullible readers that Brooks did not support BLM because Ngo, Pool, and other polarizing figures mentioned in the article like Laura Loomer and Marjorie Taylor Greene are the ones spreading a “false narrative.” This piece is literally propaganda with the sole intention of cornering their fellow leftists into believing that if they think Brooks was a BLM supporter, than they’re agreeing with Ngo, Pool, Loomer, and Greene.
The Daily Beast is typical left. But if you want to know more, take a look at the original article HERE.
