(Liberty Bell) – It’s amazing how much time the media spends on any horrific attack that they can spin in their favor, while completely ignoring the growing violence perpetrated by those who are so enraged that Trump is president they’ve forsaken whatever little regard for the law they may have had.
Over the weekend, while there was a virtual media blackout on the incident, an anti-Trump zealot drove his vehicle into a group of Trump supporters collecting registrations outside a Jacksonville, Florida Walmart.
Donald Trump Jr. is absolutely slamming the media for ignoring this event, declaring that the “silence was deafening” from the hypocritical left-wing media.
27-year-old Gregory Timm was arrested on Saturday after driving his van into a tent set up by pro-Trump Republicans.
According to a police report, Timm made videos both before and while he drove his van into the group.
He was seen smiling in his mug shots, and later told authorities that he hated Trump and that “someone had to take a stand.”
Although a few mainstream outlets did report on the attack, it was given very little coverage despite the highly disturbing nature of the story.
Can you even imagine the coverage if a Trump supporter had driven his truck into a group of Democrats simply registering voters?
The president’s son made the statement that the “the silence was deafening” during an appearance on Fox News.
Why is no one covering the act of political terrorism on Trump supporters simply registering voters?

“The violence against conservatives and Republicans and Trump supporters is so prevalent and so underreported if at all,” said Trump.
“If the shoe was on the other foot and that was some sort of pretend crazy, right-wing, alt-right whatever person doing it to a Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren (event), it would be the number one news story all over America, there’s not a journalist that wouldn’t be covering it ad nauseam for weeks, but when it happens to a Trump supporter…it’s getting to the point of tacit complicity from the left and from the media which are basically the same thing at this point,” he continued.
Trump pointed out the sheer hypocrisy of the lack of coverage, pointing out that if the tables had been turned, there would have been a media meltdown.
“It’s truly disgusting and honestly I’m getting sick of it and so are Americans,” Trump Jr. declared.
“Because they won’t cover it they’ve almost started condoning these sort of attacks and it’s truly disgusting,” he added, going on to challenging anyone in the mainstream media to “have the guts to actually say enough is enough.”
