The media and their Democrat colleagues have wasted no time pushing a new narrative as the takeaway from this week’s FBI raid on former President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home: Be on the lookout for ‘right-wing violence.’
While the obvious assessment is that the FBI and DOJ’s actions under the leadership of Attorney General Merrick Garland are politically motivated, the left has slowly morphed their focus from an unprecedented assault on a former President into specious claims that supporters of Trump are itching to react violently.
Following years of agitation from Democrats, the media, and deep state anti-Trump officials culminating in this week’s raid, liberals have feigned outrage at the … well, justifiable outrage coming from the right.
It began when The Guardian published a piece taking the focus off of the actions taken by the FBI and DOJ and instead accusing Republicans of “weaponizing” the raid.
“A bitterly polarized reaction to an FBI search of Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home on Monday threatened to enflame America’s political divisions,” they wrote within hours of the news surfacing.
“Their florid rhetoric will do little to assuage fears that a prosecution of Trump could lead to social unrest and even political violence,” The Guardian worried.

Democrat Eric Swalwell Joins in the New Narrative
Having been granted cover by the media through a narrative suggesting Republicans are “weaponizing” their response to the FBI raid, low-intelligence Democrats quickly followed suit.
Enter Chinese spy connoisseur Eric Swalwell, the California Representative who clearly suffers from a history of being thrown into his own gym locker throughout his childhood.
Swalwell accused Republicans of “fomenting violence” and agitating for “chaos” with their justifiable outrage at the raid.
“It’s very clear that Republicans have recognized that they can no longer win elections with votes, and so they’re leaning in hard to try to win elections with violence, and they are fomenting that violence right now,” he said in an interview with MSNBC’s Chris Hayes.
“This is who they are now, they are a chaos party,” he added.
This, coming from a Democrat whose supporters encouraged race riots, bailed out violent protesters and attempted murderers, and screeched to their supporters every chance they got to harass Republicans in public.
Media is Pushing Violence Narrative From Trump Supporters
As we continue our anatomy of media bias which is morphing the FBI Trump raid story from one of federal government corruption to one of fabricated threats of violence, we see that the narrative isn’t exclusively coming from left-wing outlets.
Sure, the Washington Post published a story alleging that “for months, right-wing agitators with millions of followers have peddled the idea that a moment was coming soon when violence would become necessary — a patriotic duty — to save the republic.”
Frightening what MAGA Republicans are stoking in our country. Calling for Americans to “abandon trust in the FBI, the electoral system, schools — virtually all functions of government” is a strategic choice to justify their calls to violence. #VoteThemOut https://t.co/eujIxct19p

The FBI raid, they write, might just be that moment.
They accuse “a chorus of Republican lawmakers, conservative talk-show hosts, anti-government provocateurs and pro-Trump conspiracy theorists” of “issuing explicit or thinly veiled calls for violence.”
For “months, right-wing agitators” have been pushing violence? Odd, I don’t recall hearing much about that as I was too busy reading reports on abortion lovers publishing maps to homes of Supreme Court justices and one left-wing lunatic in particular being arrested for attempting to assassinate Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
The Post’s twisting of the narrative is but one example. Go ahead and take at Google search results and you’ll see the echo chamber has shifted the ‘right-wing violence’ is coming into overdrive.
As predicted the far left & their media mouthpieces are laying the groundwork to criminalize opposition by arguing that anyone outraged by the FBI raid is “dangerous” & “fomenting violence” https://t.co/tIDYpyiMrv

Even Fox News jumped on the bandwagon.
“There are growing concerns Wednesday about the safety of FBI agents, FBI Director Christopher Wray and Garland following the search of Mar-a-Lago on Monday,” they reported.
“Authorities monitoring social media posts are spotting a significant increase in death threats aimed toward agents, Wray and Garland, with these threats continuing at a steady pace online,” Fox adds.
It’s clear as day what is happening here in my view.
The media paints a narrative, Democrats run with it and they bang it into their followers’ heads repeatedly until one day, some lunatic does take action.
Once that happens, they will justify a crackdown on their political opponents – the gun control push will continue, limiting free speech will continue, attacking parents as ‘domestic terrorists’ will increase, IRS agents will come after conservative Americans, raids will become more commonplace, and jail time will become the new norm.
Democrats will implement these tactics – as they already have – and the media, who once investigated such acts of corruption, will publish glowing reports on the scourge of Trump supporters being shut down in America.
