Media Screams Foul Over Trump Massacre Video

The mainstream media is screaming foul over a video shown last week at a Trump resort for a pro-Trump conference. The intentionally amateurish video places news outlet logos and Democrat politicians and other Trump foes faces into a video of a church massacre from the movie “The Kingsman”. Donald Trump had nothing to do with this video, although he is apparently a fan of the owner of the website where it first appeared last year. The massacre occurs at “The Church of Fake News”. Hmmm. Why would that be?

Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke weighed in:

At a conference of Trump supporters, they played a video of our president murdering journalists in a church. Last year, a Trump supporter sent bombs to CNN—and a shooter entered a church yesterday. This video isn’t funny. It will get people killed.

But, in The Kingsman movie, the violent scene was not going to incite a thing. From

Following a trail of breadcrumbs, Colin Firth’s Galahad tracks Samuel L. Jackson’s Valentine to a congregation filled with racist, anti-semitic, abortion-damning, atheist-scorning, potentially inbred humans. Valentine uses this site as a testing ground for his new device that makes people go ape-shit violent towards one another.

Massacring the cretins mentioned above is fine, but don’t attack the media. By the way, here is the video of the Trump massacre:

The New York Times’ Maggie Habberman and Michael S. Schmidt opined yesterday:

Throughout his 2016 campaign and presidency, Mr. Trump has sought to demonize the news media, partly out of frustration about the coverage of his administration and partly because he likes to have an opponent to target. Mr. Trump has also sought to undermine confidence in the mainstream media, some of his advisers acknowledge privately, to make people doubt the accuracy of less favorable accounts of what goes on in his administration.

Habberman and Schmidt have it totally backwards. President Donald Trump is following, not leading, in this case. The collective media have undermined themselves for decades. In 1968, “Uncle” Walter Cronkite lied about the Tet Offensive. In 1993, NBC settled a suit with General Motors over exploding gas tanks.

And, today, ABC News was caught using footage from Knob Creek Gun Range in Kentucky. They claimed the gun range footage was a battle between the Turks and the Kurds. Here is how ABC News reported it in the original broadcasts:

“This video, obtained by ABC News, appears to show the fury of the Turkish attack on the border town of Tal Abyad,” senior foreign correspondent Ian Pannell, who is in Syria, said Monday on Good Morning America.

As he spoke, ABC aired footage showing undisclosed gunmen firing tracer bullets at undisclosed targets, causing massive, fiery explosions. Furious stuff indeed.

Earlier, on Sunday, ABC News anchor Tom Llamas also aired the allegedly shocking footage, claiming it showed a fierce Turkish attack on Kurd civilians.

“The situation rapidly spiraling out of control in northern Syria. One week since President Trump ordered U.S. forces out of that region, effectively abandoning America’s allies in the fight against [the Islamic State],” he said.

Llamas then described the video as it aired on-screen.

“This video right here appearing to show Turkey’s military bombing Kurd civilians in a Syrian border town. The Kurds, who fought alongside the U.S. against ISIS. Now, horrific reports of atrocities committed by Turkish-backed fighters on those very allies,” he added.

Of course, it’s very easy to mistake Western Kentucky for Syria. Read the preceding with a ton of sarcasm.

Every news caster on the mainstream media outlets fairly drips with their hatred and condescension of Trump and anyone who even, ever, thought of voting for Trump.

Like I said, Donald Trump is a follower, not a leader, in the distrust of media. If we revile the media, they have only themselves to blame. The Church of Fake News Massacre video is silly and amateurish. We, the sane people with a sense of humor, see it for what it is. We don’t want anyone in the media harmed. We just wish they would tell the truth, for once.

    Of note, the video was not authorized to be shown by the people putting on the conference…

    Killing h8ers by hollyweird was just fine. by Colin and Samuel too. but how dare you point this at the sweet innocent media/sarc (Media, you all have taken sides. It was your actions that spawned this. your sweetness has long been spent (decades))

  • GWB says:

    they played a video
    That makes it sound like (intentionally) they used it as part of a presentation to the people attending the event. They did NOT. It was playing on a loop in a side room with a dozen other videos and meme “art”. And that room was apparently empty of people. The “they” in this case was not the conference organizers or any speaker.
    (Always the first question you should ask when someone says “they did something”: “Who is ‘they‘?”

    a Trump supporter sent bombs to CNN
    Well, no, he sent wannabe bombs. Or your idiot employees wouldn’t have treated them as cavalierly as they did.

    a shooter entered a church yesterday
    Which had nothing to do with the video, nor political differences. (And, btw, what a horridly passive way to say that a man shot two people and bashed another before being tackled by the wedding guests.)

    Mr. Trump has sought to demonize the news media
    No. He has sought to exploit the contempt in which the news media is held by the electorate.
    But, since when have news reciters ever understood cause-and-effect?
    As you say:President Donald Trump is following, not leading

    obtained by ABC News
    appears to show the fury
    That right there tells me someone sent them the footage and told them it was of Syria, and they hedged their bets. The producers had no way of knowing if it was shot in Syria, and they didn’t want any lawsuits.

    it’s very easy to mistake Western Kentucky for Syria
    Well, actually it is, given in that scenario it’s TOTALLY DARK and there’s explosions and gunfire. I’m betting you didn’t know it was Kentucky, either. It does speak to their gullibility and their reliance on Paliwood stringers for their “news”, though.

    The Church of Fake News Massacre video is silly and amateurish.
    Actually, I think it’s grotesque (the original and the ‘parody’ one). (BTW, I think the “amateurish” bit is intentional, in order to prove it’s a ‘parody’ and prevent legal issues.) I’m not happy it exists, and not happy you repeated it here.
    BUT, I’m not going to demand you take it down, nor form a Twit mob to harass you, nor demand the gov’t stop it. I’ll just say “We should be better than this level of grotesquery” and leave it at that.

    OMG! What a vile and disgusting video. I’m absolutely positive that those people who were outraged and sickened by the Kathy Griffin photo holding tRump’s decapitated head will blow their minds over this video given how much worse it is compared to the Griffin photo. I’m not surprised at the general VG response … moving into their camps of “when you do it it’s wrong” … “when we do it, it’s perfectly acceptable.”

    • GWB says:

      No. This is not worse than the Griffin decapitation photo.
      But it is something that we should not encourage.

    • Scott says:

      Now Kevin, I know this will be hard for you to understand, but I’ll try to use small words. When Kathy Griffin held that severed head, people on the right got upset with HER, and called HER out for it. Not Hillary, not Obama, but the PERSON THAT ACTUALLY DID IT!… so, as GWB, zenman, and Toni ALL pointed out (which the left did NOT do with Griffin), is that this video is something that should not have been done, and again UNLIKE the left, the put the blame on THE PEOPLE WHO MADE THE VIDEO!, While all you crypto-commie leftist America haters try to blame President Trump, who had nothing to do with it.
      While I don’t expect you to grasp those not so subtle differences, folks with functioning brains can see that you’re trying to compare apples to walnuts…So please stop sniffing glue, you really can’t spare the brain cells

  • GWB says:

    BTW, the footage that ABC ran of “Syria” turns out to have been first attributed to “Syria” by a Turk (mayor of Ankara, past or present) who is notorious for misinformation campaigns. So, the “reliance on Paliwood stringers” comment was SPOT-ON.
