First movies, then video games, and now memes. The media is outraged not by actual ANTIFA violence against Trump supporters but instead are targeting a meme video, which is being characterized as an “incitement to violence.”
The video was an adaptation of the Church Massacre scene from a film that grossed half-a-billion dollars at the box office. No one in the media had an issue with a man going into a church to slaughter Christians, in a video that has over 7,500,000 views.
You can watch the Trump meme video here:
You can watch the scene from Kingsman: The Secret Service Here:
Did that movie scene incite violence?
A Few Months after the release of Kingsman Dylan roof shot up a church
No one said anything when a movie depicted christian worshipers being massacred
Do you think the scene inspired violence against Christians? https://t.co/aFSi56uTH2

Many have pointed out that the New York Times sponsored Shakespeare in the Park. In 2017 the play depicted Trump being assassinated with knives.

And that the White House press corp laughed about violence against Trump supporters
When asked about actual violence against Trump supporters, members of the media audibly laugh. pic.twitter.com/kFsJygu1h0

Maybe 10 people saw the meme video. Now millions have.
And that the meme video wasn’t widely shown, and instead was played in some side room as an example (not an endorsement) of memes.
(This is the room where the meme video was shown.)
The media’s outrage is an example of amplifying a trivial true event to manufactures outrage.
They do this every day.
