|Thompson arrested for "being Black while operating a laptop."|
A few days ago when Donald Trump said that the recent spate of attacks and threats against Jewish institutions were possibly not caused by anti-Semitism, he was mocked and sneered at by the Lugenpresse (lying media).
Guess what? Yes, he was right again.
The police have now arrested the man responsible for the bomb threats to Jewish centres, and he is a Black leftist. Not only this, but he is even a fully signed-up member of the Lugenpresse, having previously been fired from his job at major on-line Leftist news site The Intercept.
The man in question is Juan Thompson, who laughably tried to blame the threats on an ex-girlfriend, who he pretended was trying to frame him. Thompson was fired from the Intercept last year for fabricating quotes for his articles as Mediaite.com reported:
An investigation into [Juan Thompson]’s reporting turned up three instances in which quotes were attributed to people who said they had not been interviewed. In other instances, quotes were attributed to individuals we could not reach, who could not remember speaking with him, or whose identities could not be confirmed,” Editor-in-chief Betsy Reed announced in a note to readers.
Thompson went to great lengths to deceive his editors, creating an email account to impersonate a source and lying about his reporting methods,” she continues, noting that he even created a fake email account to impersonate Reed herself."
What has to be said here is that the Lugenpresse did not fire Thompson merely for lying, but for lying in a way that made the fact that they all lie all the time blatantly obvious. To lie as much as the Lugenpresse does and get away with it, requires certain standards of plausibility and deniability. The Lugenpresse prefer subtle distortion, the use of emphasis and omission, the application of double standards, etc. to get its poisonous lies across. A naive liar like Thompson is the worst thing for them.
So, another way to read this story is as an example of "affirmative action" gone wrong. It is almost the rule in the Lugenpresse for Black journalists to be promoted high above their ability to successfully lie. Thompson is merely the latest example. Does anyone remember Jayson Blair at the New York Times?
