‘Bloodbath’: Watch the Media Lie About Trump in Real Time

19 March 2024

3.3 MINS

The media lied about Trump, again. It’s a lie worth dissecting, if only to prepare us for the next one.

Like so many clapping seals, the corporate press found their talking point on Sunday, and set out to convince the world that Donald Trump had incited violence at a weekend rally in Dayton, Ohio.

What the headlines lacked in creativity they made up for in repetition: “Trump says there will be a ‘bloodbath’ if he loses the election.” “Trump Defends His Warning of a ‘Blood Bath for the Country’.” “The True Threat of Donald Trump’s “Bloodbath” Speech.”

President Joe Biden likewise capitalised on the headlines, retweeting a nine-second video clip of Trump’s remarks, and claiming, “It’s clear this guy wants another January 6”.

There was only one problem, of course. Former president Donald Trump was speaking about the auto industry.

Addressing the threat to American manufacturing jobs posed by cheap Mexican and Chinese imports, Trump said:

We’re going to put a 100 percent tariff on every single car that comes across the line and you’re not going to be able to sell those cars, if I get elected. Now if I don’t get elected, it’s going to be a bloodbath. That’s going to be the least of it. It’s going to be a bloodbath for the country. That’ll be the least of it. But they’re not going to sell those cars.

Even a few seconds of footage either side of Trump’s “it’s going to be a bloodbath for the country” line makes it clear he was speaking about an economic disaster.

The Iron Law of Woke Projection

The use of the word “bloodbath” in its metaphorical sense is so commonplace it hardly requires explanation — though the journalists feigning ignorance would do well to read up at Merriam-Webster, Wiktionary.org or Dictionary.com.

They would also do well to watch this two-minute video of Trump-hating media figures using the word “bloodbath” in exactly the same way he did:

So are we to believe they’re all guilty of inciting violence too?

Since irony is our theme here, let’s take a look at another two-minute video, this time of Trump’s enemies calling for literal violence against him and his supporters:

So, just to clarify: if Trump uses the word “bloodbath” metaphorically, he is worse than Hitler. But if Trump’s enemies literally incite violence, they get a free pass because they’re on the correct side of the political aisle, a.k.a. the party of love and compassion.

(They’re also above criticism for their proud involvement in the abortion bloodbath that has resulted in the deaths of well over 63 million unborn babies in the United States).

The Iron Law of Woke Projection never misses — namely: when the woke accuse others of a particular behaviour, you can be certain they are guilty of that same behaviour themselves.

Another Trump Hoax to Add to the List

For further irony, consider that the Trump Bloodbath Hoax is brought to you by all the same people eager to convince you that misinformation and disinformation pose an existential threat to humanity and must be censored. In the upside-down world they are seeking to create, they are allowed to misinform you, but you must be silenced for telling the truth.

By the way, if this is the first time you have encountered such a clearcut case of media dishonesty about Donald Trump, you may be interested to learn that it is only the latest in a very long and illustrious list of similar hoaxes. Other instances include:

The ‘Trump Mocked a Reporter’s Disability’ Hoax
The Russian Collusion Hoax
The Steele Dossier Hoax
The ‘Trump Called Nazis Very Fine People’ Hoax
The ‘Trump Overfed Koi Fish in Japan’ Hoax
The ‘Trump Tried to Grab the Steering Wheel of the Beast’ Hoax
The ‘Trump Put Migrant Kids in Cages’ Hoax
The Jussie Smollett Hoax
The Covington Catholic Kids Hoax
The ‘Trump Told People to Drink Bleach’ Hoax
The ‘Covid Lab Leak is a Conspiracy Theory’ Hoax
The Bubba Wallace Hoax
The ‘Trump Used Teargas to Clear Protestors for a Bible Photo Op’ Hoax
The ‘Mostly Peaceful Protests’ Hoax
The Gretchen Whitmer Kidnapping Plot Hoax
The ‘Hunter Biden’s Laptop was Russian Disinformation’ Hoax
The ‘No Court Found Major Fraud in the 2020 Election’ Hoax

Add it to the list!

    (1) Truth is absolutely paramount. Satan constantly uses blatant lies to try to achieve his goals. He always has. Communists alias Marxists alias Leftists constantly use blatant lies to try to achieve their goals. Such people need to be constantly challenged to validate the truth of what they say, under threat of being held up to public ridicule (or even taken to court) if they are found to be blatantly lying. (2) The ‘everyday person in the street’ needs to be constantly encouraged to exercise discernment as to what to believe and what to reject. One of the Ten Commandments is that no-one should bear false witness against anyone. Blatant liars are thumbing their nose against God Himself, and need to be warned that they CANNOT get away with it in the end. They will have to answer to Him for it.
