Speaking of mainstream media encouraging violence on the left, the very fake news outlet also known as CNN (Clinton News Network) reached a new low after scrubbing a headline that called Antifa violent. If you wonder why that happened, well, Antifa complained, i.e. they didn’t like it and CNN caved. This is mainstream media journalism at its best. The original CNN headline can be admired below:
The original article was signed by Chris Welch and Sara Ganim and it was titled “Unmasking the leftist Antifa movement: Activists seek peace through violence.
But then, according to CNN’s own editorial note, CNN news changed the title of the story on Sunday after members of the domestic terrorist group Antifa complained. The story was re-dubbed “Unmasking the leftist Antifa movement”. At the bottom of the article, you can read the clarification:
“Editor’s note: This story has been updated to clarify that counter-protesters say they are not to blame for the violence at the Charlottesville protest. The story’s headline has also been updated,”
CNN literally scrubbed a headline which called Antifa violent because Antifa did not like it.

The article contains a video which depicts Antifa operatives wearing full combat gear while giving an interview for CNN. They all wear black attire, with black sunglasses and bandanas/hats covering their faces, like all peaceful protesters do. The question is, if Antifa are so peaceful, why do they try so hard to hide their identities? Why show up with bottles of urine, gas mask, and various weapons???
I’ve never known anyone who does something out of peace and love, take so much effort to come across as sinister. Even if the headline was changed to appease Antifa, the article still describes the violence purported by its operatives. And speaking of Charlottesville violence, let me see if I understand this correctly: black people who were never slaves, are fighting white people who were never Nazis, over a statue erected by Democrats, because Democrats can’t stand their own history anymore. And somehow it’s all President Trump’s fault.
