Joe Biden has been echoing the leftwing media. They are reporting that the six men responsible for the plot to kidnap and kill Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer were encouraged by the president and were “rightwing” militia members. Is that the truth? Well, Biden and the mainstream media were once again not being totally truthful, and that’s why they got a big reality check. You don’t want to miss this.

With only 25 days until the presidential election, the mainstream media’s sole goal is to smear President Donald Trump any way they can. Then, all Joe Biden has to do is come along and back up their claims.

That’s how this major news story about the plot to “kidnap and kill” Gov. Whitmer comes into play. It’s imperative the media back up the Biden campaign’s accusation that President Donald Trump is a supporter of white supremacists and neo-Nazis.

So, when a plot to kidnap and kill Whitmer broke, the mainstream media immediately kicked into high gear to spread that the six men arrested were huge Trump supporters and “rightwing” militia members.

Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel, who is a Democrat, said on Thursday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Live With Katy Tur,” that Trump’s rhetoric played a role in the plot to violently overthrow the state government by kidnaping Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, thwarted by the FBI.

“Things escalated exponentially recently, and first of all, of course, having a president that seems to condone these types of actions,” Nessel claimed. “Certainly, I would say more than dog whistles out there. Right? I mean, very good people on both sides. And as you indicated before, tweets to liberate Michigan. What does that mean exactly?”

The Washington Post claims the six men were part of the “boogaloo bois” who they also claim are “far-right-extremists.”

Twenty-six-year-old Joseph Morrison, the group’s “commander,” went by “Boogalo Bunyan” online, authorities say.

Then, you have Joe Biden trying to tie the six men to Trump claiming way back in April when the president tweeted, “Liberate Michigan,” he spurred on these “rightwing militiamen.”

“There is a throughline from President Trump’s dog whistles and tolerance of hate, vengeance, and lawlessness to plots such as this one. He is giving oxygen to the bigotry and hate we see on the march in our country,” Biden said.

It sure appears the Michigan attorney general, the Washington Post, and Joe Biden are all echoing the same talking points meant to paint Trump as a rightwing extremist who encouraged these men.

But there’s just one big problem. 

There is evidence to suggest the six men were anarchists, more likely leftwing extremists and supporters of Antifa. First, a simple search of the term “boogloo bois” will take you to a post by the Department of Justice.

“Two Self-Described ‘Boogaloo Bois’ Charged with Attempting to Provide Material Support to Hamas,” the DOJ states. “Boogaloo Bois discussed committing acts of violence against police officers to overthrow the U.S. government.”

Wow, that sure doesn’t sound like Trump supporters. That sounds an awful lot like Antifa members. 

But that’s not all. Social-media posts by Brandon Caserta — one of the six who faces 19 felony charges, including state terrorism counts — show the man excoriating Mr. Trump while sitting in front of an anarchist “Antifa-style” flag.

“Trump is not your friend, dude. And it amazes me that people actually believe that when he’s shown over and over and over again that he’s a tyrant,” the suspect says. “Every single person that works for government is your enemy, dude.”

The video, first reported by director Robby Starbuck, prompted him to question the media’s integrity.

“Caserta has an anarchist flag behind him and in YouTube videos trashes police. He’s not a Republican, he’s an anarchist,” Starbuck said.

“Why did it take me to pull all these videos to give people access to the truth about the ideology these guys have?” he tweeted Thursday. “It says a lot about the state of journalism that a director/producer had to dig these clips up because we all know we can’t trust mainstream news to do their job.”

Starbuck added: “Democrats and the media say President Donald Trump inspired these idiots who plotted to kidnap Gov. Gretchen Whitmer. They’re lying. As this key member of the plot makes very clear, he hated Trump too. They’re government and police hating anarchists. Don’t fall for the lies!”

Nowhere does the Department of Justice say the “Boogaloo Bois” or the “Wolverine Watchmen” is rightwing militia. Nowhere can you find any evidence of the six men supporting President Trump. That leap was made by Gov. Whitmer, and the mainstream media ran with it.

This is just another example of how dangerous the media has become. Sadly, there will be Americans who hear of this story and really believe Trump is to blame and that white supremacists groups are the biggest threat to America.

Sure, there are neo-Nazi groups active in America. But are they the biggest threat we face? That’s what the Democrats and their media cohorts want you to believe. We know it’s Antifa and Black Lives Matter that have been rioting and causing so much damage since the end of May.

All Joe Biden and his campaign have are lies to sell to Americans. That’s why we must get the truth out to as many as possible before Election Day.
