Fake news media: Trump’s ‘rock-throwing’ words to blame for event that took place before he made statement

According to the liberal mainstream media, President Trump is pretty much to blame for everything.  Now, we’re supposed to believe that a statement the president made on Thursday is to blame for an incident that took place on Monday.  For those from Rio Linda, as Rush Limbaugh might say, that means Trump is to blame for something that happened a full three days before he uttered his “rock-throwing” warning.

According to the New York Times:

The Nigerian Army, part of a military criticized for rampant human rights abuses, on Friday used the words of President Trump to justify its fatal shootings of rock-throwing protesters.

Soldiers opened fire this past Monday on a march of about 1,000 Islamic Shia activists who had been blocking traffic in the capital, Abuja. Videos circulated on social media showed several protesters hurling rocks at the heavily armed soldiers who then shot fleeing protesters in the back.

The Nigerian military said three protesters were killed but the toll appears to have been much higher.

The article added:

Ibrahim Musa, a spokesman for the Shia group, said that on Monday security forces refused to let protesters, who numbered no more than 1,000, pass the checkpoint as they marched toward their destination. He said 13 other protesters were killed during two other marches this week, one before and one after Monday’s deadly march.

“Rocks are not equal to bullets,” he said. “The use of force is disproportionate. I don’t think President Trump is a good example — even in America many are critical of him. I am surprised that the Army will use Trump as a role model.”

Others weighed in:

“So,” Twitchy said, “if we’re understanding this correctly, the Nigerian Army shooting rock-wielding protesters this past Monday is Donald Trump’s fault because of a speech he gave … yesterday.”

Reaction is pretty much what you’d expect:

No, it’s not:

Of course.  Just like Mitt Romney is to blame for the AD 79 eruption of Mount Vesuvius

Yeah, that’s the ticket.

It’s more than just despicable.  It simply shows that the so-called “mainstream media” is nothing more than the propaganda arm of the Democrat Party.
