Patrician media et al. are raging over the stupid parody video at Trump Miami only because they can use it to attack him. It was part of a "meme exhibit" in a room next to the back kitchen that was entirely empty. It had nothing to do w/his campaign.
The video is distasteful, itself a crude South Park-style edited scene from a 2014 spy comedy film. I don't like jokes about political violence, but if MSM are truly concerned about this video, I wonder why they have brought MILLIONS of eyes to it when it was otherwise obscure.
It's a shame that there is no reporting on the families who went on stage at the conference ballroom to talk about how they've been permanently separated from their children due to lax border security. The preventable killings of Americans should be more offensive than a meme.
You'd had to be paying really, really close attention to one particular small monitor to notice that part of video. I went in room to interview angel mom @sabine_durden, who told me about her son, because it was silent, empty & far from main conference. Neither one of us noticed.
@sabine_durden I'm deeply familiar w/politically-motivated violence against media. I was beaten by an antifa mob & robbed in Portland for filming on my GoPro. I spoke about this on stage at the conference. The meme video is unethical, but so are journalists who use it to drum up fake rage.
