Media pushes big lie that Hamas UCLA supporters were peaceful

The actual facts are that the Hamas supporters had been harassing Jewish students and even violently assaulting them.

The media has settled on its ‘Big Lie’.

The UCLA version of the Big Lie is that the Hamas supporters and their encampment were “peaceful” and then they were attacked by violent Jewish counterprotesters.

You’ll see variations of this lie at local papers like the LA Times and the LA Daily News, and in the nationals, the New York Times, the Washington Post, and of course across a lot of cable news.

The actual facts are that the Hamas supporters had been harassing Jewish students and even violently assaulting them.

The day before the riot, I heard an account at my own table of a student being assaulted.

One of UCLA’s own professors was assaulted with no response from the university.

Professor Nir Hoftman, who has taught at UCLA for 22 years, was assaulted earlier this week while walking on campus looking down on his phone.

In an interview with Fox News, he described what had happened:

“They literally assaulted me on the way over here. I was walking to give the interview to a news station and two or three thugs tried to block my approach to the open area. I ignored them and one of them stood in front of me and said, ‘you can’t walk this way.”

Hoftman said that another person tackled him from the side and ripped his earbud from his ear before running off. “The security people who were there, were watching, not doing anything.”

The professor called what’s going on today in UCLA as “anarchy, it’s like the wild, wild west.”

And there is the Jewish student who was assaulted, which led to some Persian Jews coming back to kick some ass.

UCLA allowed Hamas supporters to block Jewish students from campus. They admitted it. And the media won’t report it.

The media is lying. It knows it’s lying. There’s video evidence that shows it’s lying. And it will go on lying because establishing and supporting an ideological leftist narrative is all it does anymore.
