‘Facts be DAMNED’: Drew Holden torches Dems, media, and blue-checks over Lancaster narrative in EPIC receipt-filled thread

The Lancaster narrative is spinning and ‘evolving’ right before our very eyes, and it’s absolute garbage … as usual. Drew Holden, as he often does, took the media to task in another brilliantly brutal thread using their own headlines, narratives, and writing against them and it’s a beautiful, beautiful thing. 🧵Thread🧵 We’re seeing a narrative evolve in real time in Lancaster, PA that omits the fact that the man who was shot & killed by police was actively trying to kill a police officer, even w/ bodycam evidence. Enormously irresponsible, especially given the current climate. pic.twitter.com/BYgToAfFfG — Drew Holden (@DrewHolden360) September 14, 2020 This new breed of mob likes to make heroes out of let’s face it, not great people. The guy CHARGED the policeman with a knife. What do you think happens to anyone who charges a cop with a knife? Any idea? Exactly what happened. Don’t be stupid. Simple enough. Drew’s thread is something else: We’ll start with @AP. They just so happened to leave out the reason why the officer was running away – a direct threat against his life – but managed to get the suspects race involved. pic.twitter.com/ZZ7XZyU4vm — Drew Holden (@DrewHolden360) September 14, 2020 The AP has gotten just as bad as anyone else, sadly. Reporting from @AP got picked up all over, as it does, and recycled through the same lens. Here’s @usnews, who manage to scrub the knife detail and focus instead on the trendy topics: police shootings and protests. pic.twitter.com/yc3oOSZHxE — Drew Holden (@DrewHolden360) September 14, 2020 The knife is a key detail. Gosh, why would they scrap that? Yeah yeah, we know, we’re just being smartas*es. Which is exactly the problem. By shoehorning a very obviously justified police use of force into the current narrative, you erase the details that matter. @PhillyInquirer did the same thing, facts be damned. pic.twitter.com/9Bi7nfDHy3 — Drew Holden (@DrewHolden360) September 14, 2020 Knife-wielding man. There, fixed it for them. Absolutely zero mention of what precipitated the deadly shooting from @YahooNews. pic.twitter.com/wWtVQPmfeK — Drew Holden (@DrewHolden360) September 14, 2020 Side note, what is with that guy’s hair? What’s in it? Cement? Same thing from @guardian – completely omits the key details, even after all the relevant information is publicly available. pic.twitter.com/vEky4HuoeJ — Drew Holden (@DrewHolden360) September 14, 2020 The freakin’ bodycam footage SHOWS THE ATTACK and crickets. And more of the same from @syracusedotcom pic.twitter.com/ZzDoxs72Vo — Drew Holden (@DrewHolden360) September 14, 2020 Repugnant. Here’s @thehill pic.twitter.com/DSsH9tW5jh — Drew Holden (@DrewHolden360) September 14, 2020 Protest. That’s adorable. @Newsweek was – not surprisingly – the least responsible with their reporting. pic.twitter.com/Ujm0qMSj6O — Drew Holden (@DrewHolden360) September 14, 2020 Newsweek sucks. There’s a reason they were sold for $1. Just sayin’. And by the time the dust has settled and the damage has been surveyed by the “protestors,” the situation that led to it has been all but forgotten. Here’s @AP again and @PennLive pic.twitter.com/YZDGQtwATr — Drew Holden (@DrewHolden360) September 14, 2020 Heartbreaking day. FFS. IT’S ALL THE COP’S FAULT. I usually leave out local stations because they do a hard and thankless job, but you can already see the narrative forming here. pic.twitter.com/2H35lIJhvD — Drew Holden (@DrewHolden360) September 14, 2020 Dude had a knife. Dude charged the cop. Dude had stabbed other people. C’mon, media, don’t make us do your jobs for you. And the usual arsonists jumped on the pile. It is absolutely impossible to look at the bodycam video and conclude that the “police summarily executed” anyone, @greg_doucette. pic.twitter.com/le5CXdy3ji — Drew Holden (@DrewHolden360) September 14, 2020 Douche-ette. Sorry. That’s immature. But deserved. And the usual clickbait folks jump in. Here’s @revolttv. pic.twitter.com/Jickep7PLO — Drew Holden (@DrewHolden360) September 14, 2020 Erupts. Like a volcano? Heh. And before you know it, the issue – framed in a way that doesn’t fit the facts – is trending on twitter. Shouldn’t need to be pointed out but this is REALLY bad. pic.twitter.com/XEYnYtTr5Q — Drew Holden (@DrewHolden360) September 14, 2020 Twitter loves their riots. Yup. This death, like any other, is a tragedy. But that doesn’t mean it fits your world view or advances your narrative just because of a few of the details of the event. If reporting obfuscates more than it reveals about these kinds of things, we’ll all be worse off. — Drew Holden (@DrewHolden360) September 14, 2020 What he said. I have a bad feeling this thread will need to be added on to as more places pick up the story, especially national outlets. — Drew Holden (@DrewHolden360) September 14, 2020 We’ll keep an eye on his thread because he’s probably right … there will be more of these headlines. Also, shouldn’t be lost on anyone that all of this is happening while two officers in LA are battling for their lives after someone attempted to assassinate them. You want to know where the anti-police animus comes from? I’ve got a guess. — Drew Holden (@DrewHolden360) September 14, 2020 Ooh, ooh, we know! *** Related: ‘ENOUGH!’ Mollie Hemingway UNLOADS on The Atlantic’s Yoni Appelbaum in 1 BRUTAL tweet for pushing Vindman/Russia conspiracy BS ‘THIS is why the Left HATES us and our honest reporting’: Forbes admits Elijah Schaffer’s coverage of Lancaster riots might sway PA to Trump ‘Vote Dem or we’ll kill the country.’ The Atlantic’s Shadi Hamid deletes tweet and runs after being REKT for saying the quiet part out loud (we got it!) recent stories

'THIS is why the Left HATES us and our honest reporting': Forbes admits Elijah Schaffer's coverage of Lancaster riots might sway PA to Trump

Honest reporting?! There will BE no honest reporting here! Heh. Forbes says our coverage of the riots last night might sway the Pennsylvania election in favor of Trump If Biden doesn’t respond properly. That’s why they hate us: our honest reporting is actually swaying public opinion and influencing the election https://t.co/Uv884aZTa4 — ELIJAH RIOT (@ElijahSchaffer) September 14, 2020 From Forbes: With the hot summer of protests turning into an equally angry election autumn, issues of police violence, and the breakouts of violent anti-police protests are sure to dominate the nation’s attention. As a result, the leaders of the Black Lives Matter movement and others who have called for an end of unjust police violence have an important task ahead of them. Thy must help the protesters that have swelled the streets better understand when anti-police anger is righteous, and when it is unjustified. Failing to do so harms their cause, and their chances of success of creating real and lasting reform. And for Joe Biden, he must navigate another explosive issue in an essential battleground state that voted for Trump in 2016. All eyes will be focused on how Biden addresses the incident, and how he explains to the American people where the line between proper protests and the need for law and order should be drawn. As the campaign hits its stretch run, Biden must address this issue, and the protests in Lancaster, like his election depends on it … Because it likely does. Ya’ think? Gosh, and here we thought Democrats threatening Americans to vote for them OR ELSE would somehow sway public opinion. Heh. Guess Americans like to be showed the truth, who would have guessed? — ELIJAH RIOT (@ElijahSchaffer) September 14, 2020 Right? We’re super shocked. Totally. Oh my gosh, Forbes changed the word riot to protest within an hour pic.twitter.com/rtGAvO3rG2 — ELIJAH RIOT (@ElijahSchaffer) September 14, 2020 HA HA HA HA HA HA HA Sorry, if we don’t laugh we’ll never stop throwing up.
