Trump and the Judge:  Liberal Media Bias At Work

Liberal media doesn’t report judge’s political activism related to his Mexican heritage or his association with the law group that supports illegal immigrants.   

I’ve said it before: you can’t trust the media. They are not on your side. They are on their side. Like many liberals, they think they know best and that it’s their job to control what you know and how you think.  

Take for instance this absurd mess about Donald Trump’s statements about the judge. He said he believed that Gonzalo Curiel, the judge in the Trump University class action lawsuit, was not being fair to him because the judge had a bias against him because of his stance on controlling illegal Mexican immigration. The media made sure you heard his basic comment. But have you heard that the judge is a member of the San Diego La Raza Lawyers Association, a La Raza affiliated law group that advocates for illegal immigrants? And have you heard that that same law group has contributed significantly to the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign?

So what is this “La Raza” group?   La Raza means “The Race” in Spanish. Can you imagine if a white judge belonged to an organization called “The Race”? Their group motto is “Everything for The Race. Outside The Race…Nothing!” Labor icon César Chávez was a critic of La Raza, calling it the “Hispanic KKK”. The judge’s group uses their legal experience to fight against immigration control laws, border fences, etc and support drivers licenses and free tuition for illegals. It is not unreasonable for Donald Trump to say that a judge with this kind of affiliation could be biased against him. Reporters should have told us about these connections but that would have destroyed the narrative of Trump as a racist.

Now that Hillary Clinton has secured her nomination as the Democrat Party candidate, the liberal media are uniting in their effort to tear down Donald Trump. They will take his comments out of context or make sure you know only the part of any story that they want you to know. And they will use their self-propelled “controversy” stories about Trump to divert your attention away from the ethical and legal troubles of Hillary Clinton.

If you fell for the liberal media’s efforts to portray Trump as a racist, don’t feel too bad. Republican politicians, who have been themselves attacked for decades by the same liberal media, fell for the story hook, line and sinker. In typical invertebrate style, they all folded like lawn chairs and rushed to any available microphone to bash Trump themselves. They should know better by now. Their weakness is another reason why so many conservative voters want them booted out of their positions.  

With that said, Trump does share some of the blame. He should not be making public comments about an active lawsuit. And he should have a spokesperson (or a full press team for that matter) responsible for handling these kind of issues. Hopefully, he learned an important lesson from this fiasco. It is a lesson that all of us should understand. The liberal media are not our friends and we cannot expect balanced reporting from them.
