As MSNBC prepares to air a
monumental hit piece on the increasingly popular
anti-incumbent sentiment sweeping the U.S., attempting to portray
the Tea Party movement as violent, an important video from the
Alex Jones archives provides a timely reminder that those pointing
fingers at others for being violent are actually the only ones
engaging in any violence.
Back in early September 2008, it was MSNBC staff members who
attempted to silence free speech by physically assaulting a
group of 9/11 truth activists and Ron Paul supporters (the original
Tea Party), led by Alex Jones, during the takeover of a live
Chris Matthews broadcast at the DNC in Denver.
One staff member, who displayed his credentials to get backstage after assaulting
Alex Jones, is even seen on camera using either a knife or a
wirecutting tool to severe the cord to Jones’ bullhorn–
clearly demonstrating that his intent was to destroy equipment
and that he was not simply caught up in the moment.
Members of the primarily pro-Obama crowd also pushed Jones
and his crew members and assaulted and smudged their cameras
and equipment, with the cooperation and participation of the
MSNBC crew– one of whom smudged his own saliva all over
an obviously expensive (and sensitive) camera lens.
A man in the crowd also flagrantly hit cameraman Richard Reeves,
who was quietly filming from a few feet away and gave no pretext
for personal attack.
Alex Jones & crew were not deterred, however, and returned
some fifteen minutes later with Luke Rudkowski, several members
of We Are Change Colorado and two more bullhorns– boldly
asserting that any attempt to silence free speech would be met
with a literal redoubling of efforts.
9/11 Truth thus challenged the tightly-controlled corporate
media by dominating the airwaves with chants of "9/11 was
an inside job", "Investigate 9/11" and other
statements for nearly two hours on MSNBC– positions that
are never reported on the mainstream media cable channels.
Watch the video:
As we have consistently illuminated, while the corporate media
and particularly MSNBC has repeatedly claimed that anti-big
government activists are dangerous and intent on violence, the
only violence dished out during numerous public events has
come from maniacal Obama supporters who are loathe
to accept anyone exercising their free speech to criticize or
challenge their dear leader.
MSNBC's spin on such incidents spiraled to ridiculous levels
this week as video of an assault by Democratic Congressman Bob
Etheridge on two student reporters, for which Etheridge later
profusely apologized for, was described
by Chris Matthews as an "ambush" on the
Congressman, against which he was forced to defend himself.
