• Popular Media Unreliable About Breonna Taylor Tragedy

    Surge Summary: The Mainstream Media got much wrong about the tragic Breonna Taylor case. Leftist commentators, of course, seem intent on pushing the racial aspect of the incident and stirring up an emotional reaction. Democratic vice-presidential candidate Joe Biden finally issued a statement condemning those who would respond with violence.

    The narrative that we have been given by the left-wing media for the last six months about what happened on that tragic night in Louisville when Breonna Taylor died was completely wrong.  Our hearts break for Ms. Taylor’s family.  She should not have died.

    But the evidence was submitted to a grand jury, and on every major point the media and their progressive allies were spreading false information.

    • The police did not go to the wrong address.
    • It was not a no-knock warrant.
    • The police officers identified themselves.
    • They entered the house and her boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, fired first, shooting an officer in the leg.

    There is zero evidence that the tragic events resulting in Taylor’s death had anything to do with race.

    The “no-knock raid” aspect of this case is so disturbing to many people, including conservatives, that Kentucky Senator Rand Paul introduced federal legislation to ban no-knock warrants and named the legislation after Taylor.

    Daniel Cameron, the conservative black attorney general of Kentucky who announced the grand jury’s decision yesterday, also announced the facts that were contrary to the left’s false narratives.  I urge you to watch his announcement.

    The left insists that Taylor was a victim of unacceptable police violence.  Well, a grand jury determined otherwise.  Officers returned fire after they were fired on.

    Last night, knowing full well the poisoned atmosphere we are in, commentators at CNN and MSNBC threw gasoline on the fire they knew was smoldering in Louisville and in other U.S. cities.  They ignored the facts and declared that racist police killed another black woman and nothing would happen to them.

    In fact, one CNN legal analyst went so far as to suggest that Attorney General Cameron “undermined his credibility” when he condemned mob violence.  Another MSNBC commentator denounced Cameron as “skinfolk but not kinfolk.”  In other words, he may have black skin, but he’s not really black, as Joe Biden might put it.

    This is how extreme the so-called “progressive left” has become.

    By the way, radical anti-Semite Linda Sarsour is in Louisville, stirring up trouble.  And there is evidence that Soros-funded rent-a-mobs were also involved in yesterday’s violence.

    After enough gasoline was poured on the fire, and a sniper attempted to murder two Louisville officers, the Biden campaign finally issued a statement saying violence wasn’t acceptable.
