Sinclair’s Anti-BLM Rhetoric

Post by sinklair » Mon Sep 14, 2020 5:37 pm

Sinclair is a conservative broadcaster. We get it. However the people they hire continue to spew hate language in its national must run coverage. Ex-Fox anchor Eric Bolling is the latest to disparage Black Lives Matter protestors.

First, there is a difference between BLM protestors and rioters. One is legal protected First Amendment speech. Rioting is a crime, regardless of the “message” behind it.

So-called “Defunding the Police” measures are aimed at providing more resources for mental health, homelessness, sexual assault, etc. — efforts not traditionally part of police training aimed at reducing recidivism.

You’d think Bolling and others in Sinclair would actually be read up on the issues to have a substantive debate on whether this approach is a good one. But instead, he purposely spreads false narratives aimed at sowing division.

Bolling works at in journalism. If an employee at 25-66 aired a story that distorted President Trump’s record, you can bet that Sinclair Senior VP of News Scott Livingston would make sure that employee was on the unemployment line that same day. However there’s no such consequence for Bolling for spreading false BLM information.

Another reason why the FCC should break up Sinclair or reject its licenses to run local stations. And the new GM and News Director need to stop airing this propaganda. Do their own work and report factual information instead of airing these slanted corporate reports.

After seeing them shoot conservatives and cops, it is reasonable to be anti BLM. Doesn't anyone notice that behind those masks are a bunch of white communist weirdos?

Another example of Sinclair’s reporting where they equate constitutionally protracted protesting with rioting and other crimes — they are not the same.

If a conservative group were PEACEFULLY protesting, no one would be calling for the loss of federal benefits. This is a concerted effort by Sinclair to confuse the argument for their own agenda.

BLM = Burn, Loot, Murder.


Ask not what your country can do FOR you; ask what they are about to do TO YOU!!

BLM has nothing to do with black lives, if it ever did. It's a communist group, led mainly by white radicals, using African Americans, and trying to foment revolution. Fascism and Communism are two sides of the same coin, so he phrase ANTIFA has no meaning that makes sense. Unless you are a communist, you should have no use for BLM. They wear masks to hide their true identity, and to hide their whiteness, not to prevent virus spread. Note that if you look closely, the black mask hides a white face. Smiling faces pretend to be your friend, and show no traces, of the evil that lurks within-Undisputed Truth.

Hey Buzzboard Moderator: is promotion of violence acceptable or are you going to start banning posters like BrianP?
