Liberal media propagandists spin NYC terror attack — Videos

On Tuesday,  Sayfullo Saipov, an Uzbek national who screamed, “Allahu Akbar” during an attack in which at least six people were killed in Lower Manhattan, mowed down a number of pedestrians, killing eight and injured about a dozen others.  Propagandists in the so-called “mainstream media,” known here as the Democrat-media complex, are twisting themselves into pretzels spinning the attack.

Earlier, we told you about CNN’s Jake Tapper, who made an unbelievable statement trying to minimize the impact of Saipov’s declaration.

But there’s more — much more.

Malcolm Nance, a “terrorism analyst” for MSNBC, for example, tried to deflect by saying the attack had nothing to do with Islam.

“What you’re seeing is not Islam, whatsoever . . . None of that is Islamic. It’s anti-Islamic,” he said.

Here’s video:

New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof tried to spin the attack as a win for gun control.

“The NYC terrorist had a pellet gun and a paintball gun. Good thing that in NYC he couldn’t buy assault rifles, or the toll would be higher,” he said on Twitter.

“Dude, really?” Twitchy asked, adding:

There are certainly multiple levels to address there, first and foremost:



Breitbart added:

Keep in mind that Kristof works for the same New York Times that responded to the June 14 Alexandria attack by trying to temper Americans’ desire to be armed to stave off mass public attacks. The NYT editorial board admitted that “all people in that situation, unarmed and under fire, would long to be able to protect themselves and their friends.” But after admitting the desire to be armed for self-defense, they criticized the idea of a society where people are actually armed to protect themselves:

Yet consider the society Americans would have to live in–the choices they would have to make–to enable that kind of defense. Every member of Congress, and every other American of whatever age, would have to go to baseball practice, or to school, or to work, or to the post office, or to the health clinic–or to any other place mass shootings now take place–with a gun on their hip.

MSNBC propagandist Joy Reid offered this vomit-inducing analysis:

Response to her tweet was met with the requisite mockery.



Keep in mind, this is the same Joy Reid who hosts regular softball interviews with Maxine Waters, the California Democrat obsessed with impeachment and conspiracy theories about Russia.

She’s also the same talking head who suggested Rep. Steve Scalise deserved to be shot due to his conservative record.

The Gateway Pundit’s Jim Hoft said CNN Crime and Justice reporter Shimon Prokupecz refused to share a description of Saipov:

No doubt there’ll be plenty more “hot takes” by the liberal media.  Who knows, maybe someone will try to blame the NRA.  Or the Russians…
