ATLANTA – Media types, especially those at CNN, can’t bear to hear of Antifa-types being labeled as ‘mobs.’ Besides, just because a group of hateful people walks like a mob, and talks like a mob, doesn’t mean it’s a mob. Right?
“I don’t like the ‘M’ word. I prefer to refer to them as flash mobs,” CNN’s Brooke Baldwin admitted. “They’re just a bunch of people who spontaneously decide to harass, attack, and fight Trump supporters. A true mob would be made up of a bunch of angry people suddenly deciding to harass, attack, and fight Trump supporters. See? Totally different.”
Brian Stelter, also from CNN, said, “When I see people on my side hitting or beating up a Trump supporter with a baseball bat, I consider that performance art. Sometimes violence can be beautiful, IF it benefits the Left. I like the term ‘flash mob’ better too. It sounds friendlier.”
“Who doesn’t love a good flash mob?” Baldwin asked. “They’re fun, energetic, happy events – just like Antifa protests! The term ‘mob’ conjures up ugly images, but these people yelling at politicians in restaurants, etc. are just expressing their joy at those who disagree with them. That’s the way I’m telling the story anyway.”
Don Lemon said he loves when Antifa protesters enhance their performances with visual effects. “When they add pepper spray, smoke bombs (especially the colored ones), or fire to their public shows, I think it really brings people together. And it shows they put some thought into their actions. I appreciate that kind of effort.”
