Leftist Website Uses Image of White Protesters to Depict Story About Black Terror Suspect

Caught red handed.

Published

on

Far-left website Raw Story was caught using an image of white stay-at-home protesters to illustrate an article about a black terror suspect who allegedly planned to kill police officers.

The controversy surrounded an article by Raw Story writer and former ShareBlue pundit Matthew Chapman entitled Ohio man arrested for plot to kidnap police and stockpile their weapons for an ‘uprising’.

The article was originally posted on both Raw Story and Twitter with an image showing three white men wearing tactical gear. The clear implication in using the image suggested that one of the men in the photograph was the terror suspect.

However, according to Shutterstock’s original description of the image, it shows members of the Yellowstone Militia of Billings “protesting Montana’s stay at home orders.”

The actual suspect, 20-year-old Christian Stanley Ferguson, who was arrested “on charges that he concocted an elaborate plan to kidnap law enforcement officers, stockpile their weapons, and build up an arsenal to ‘start an uprising,'” looks like this.

After the discrepancy was pointed out by Mike Cernovich and others, Raw Story deleted the tweet, pulled the original image and replaced it with an image of police tape.

The Raw Story article still does not contain an image of Christian Stanley Ferguson’s mugshot.

“Why did you use a stock image from lawful protesters in a story about domestic terrorism?” Cernovich asked Chapman, who didn’t respond. “Do you realize you just falsely tied several men to a planned terrorist attack?”

“Lawsuit central heading your way!” Cernovich told Raw Story.

“Mr. Ferguson is innocent until proven guilty and judging by the affidavit and the FBI’s track record of entrapping the low IQ and the mentally ill, there’s a good chance the FBI and their informants just entrapped him,” writes Chris Menahan.

“From a liberal perspective, Raw Story could have taken the angle that this was the FBI oppressing a young, black, underprivileged PoC but I guess liberals worship the FBI now and think rural white folks with no systemic power are the oppressors of all mankind so they took a different path.”

Tulsi Gabbard Asks Biden: “Have You Declared Martial Law?”

“What is it that they are trying to accomplish now by creating an enduring presence?”

Former Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard asked Joe Biden if he had declared martial law after it was revealed that thousands of troops stationed in the capital will remain there until March.

As we highlighted earlier, at least 5,000 National Guard soldiers will remain in DC until the second impeachment trial of Donald Trump is completed, a process which won’t be concluded for at least six weeks.

“President @JoeBiden, have you declared martial law? Because that is what it’s starting to look and feel like. Let our troops get back home to their families,” Gabbard tweeted.

During an appearance on Fox News, Gabbard was asked if it was justified to have so many troops guard the Capitol building given that there was absolutely no unrest during or after Biden’s inauguration.

While asserting that troops had been “mistreated” after they were made to sleep on cement floors, the former Congresswoman said that the 25,000 troops used to occupy the capital was a massive overreaction given there was no evidence of an imminent attack.

“The militarization of our nation’s capital was not only uneccesary…to send that message both to the American people but to the world that somehow our nation’s capital us under attack and threat of a siege of taking over, I just don’t think that’s the message that we want to send to the American people and to the world,” she said.

The military veteran said there was no justification for keeping 5,000 troops in the capital, asking, “What is it that they are trying to accomplish now by creating an enduring presence? That sounds a lot like a lot of the stuff that we’ve seen happen overseas.”

Gabbard also called out Rep. Adam Schiff, who she said is “advocating for targeting half the country as potential domestic terrorists.”

Reports: Trump Has Been Talked Out Of Creating A ‘Patriot Party’

Trump no longer believes he’s under serious threat of impeachment

Reports suggest that President Trump has abandoned the idea of creating a new political party, and that he will instead focus for the next two years on helping Republicans win back the House and Senate.

The notion of Trump abandoning the GOP and creating a ‘Patriot Party’ was floated last week with a report in the Wall Street Journal noting that aides had suggested Trump was considering the idea.

The idea was provided more credence with Trump’s comments during his farewell speech, as he announced that “the movement we started is just beginning,” and that he would be “back in some form”.

However, senior Trump adviser Jason Miller told reporters that “The President has made clear his goal is to win back the House and Senate for Republicans in 2022.”

“There’s nothing that’s actively being planned regarding an effort outside of that, but it’s completely up to Republican Senators if this is something that becomes more serious,” Miller added.

New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman has also noted that several sources have confirmed Trump has been ‘talked out’ of the idea, because he no longer believes he’s under serious threat of impeachment:

While many expressed excitement at the idea of a ‘Patriot Party’, others noted that it would dilute the Democrats’ opposition and that leftists are actually in favour of the idea because they believe it will strengthen their hold on Congress.

Meanwhile, Senator Rand Paul has described the impeachment effort against Trump as a ‘farce’, saying that it should be ‘dismissed’ before weeks of time and resources are wasted on it.

In an op-ed Paul wrote “The Constitution says two things about impeachment — it is a tool to remove the office holder, and it must be presided over by the chief justice of the Supreme Court.”

“If Justice Roberts is not presiding over this, then it is not impeachment. This charade will be nothing more than bitter partisanship and political theater,” Paul urged.

The Senator also noted that the entire case hinges on proving that Trump incited violence by calling for supporters to ‘fight’ for their country.

“If we are to blame politicians for the most violent acts of their craziest supporters, then many of my colleagues would face some pretty harsh charges themselves. I’ve been shot at, assaulted and harassed by supporters of the left, including some who directly said the words of politicians moved them to this violence,” Paul declared.

“I was there at the ball field when a deranged Bernie Sanders supporter almost killed Steve Scalise and seriously wounded several others,” Paul continued, adding “At the time, Democrats were arguing that the GOP plan for health care was “you get sick, then they let you die.” Is it any wonder an insane left-wing gunman took that rhetoric to heart and concluded: “If the GOP is going to let me die then maybe I’ll just kill them first”?”

Paul continued, “I am more than willing to work with Democrats to find common ground on protecting civil liberties or ending some of our many foreign military interventions, but no unity or common ground will be found while Democrats continue to fight the last election. This so-called impeachment is a farce and should be dismissed before it is even allowed to begin.”

Martial Law Til March: National Guard To Be Kept In D.C. For Trump Impeachment Trial

“They’re soldiers, they are not Nancy Pelosi’s servants”

National Guard troops are to be kept in Washington D.C. until mid March, according to a Politico report, with sources claiming that the soldiers will stay until the Democrats’ second attempt at impeachment of President Trump is complete.

The report claims that 7,000 troops will remain until the trial gets underway in February, after which 5,000 will stay until it condoles, which is likely to be six weeks later.

The official justification for keeping troops around the Capitol is “impeachment security concerns,” according to the report.

However, the Guard have been given virtually no information about what they are required to do, with one soldier describing the situation as “very unusual for any military mission.”

As we reported last week, thousands of the troops were forced to sleep OUTSIDE and in a parking Garage near the Capitol building after a Democratic lawmaker complained that ONE guardsmen was not wearing a face mask.

Even though they were eventually let back into the Capitol building, thousands of the troops are sleeping on the cold hard floor between shifts.

The troops are not happy about being kept in close confinement, with hundreds of them having contracted COVID-19. Food is also in short supply, according to the troops.

“Even if they do arrive all on time, the calories are just not there for the amount of work we put in and time we’re spending on our feet, in the cold, in full gear,” one soldier said.

Another solider slammed the shameful conditions they are being forced to live in, saying “Quite frankly this is not a ‘combat zone’, so combat conditions shouldn’t apply.”

Republicans have accused Democrats of using the troops as a prop for ‘security theatre’.

Appearing on Fox News Friday, Florida’s Ron DeSantis said “They’re soldiers, they are not Nancy Pelosi’s servants.”

Along with DeSantis, Greg Gianforte of Montana, Chris Sununu of New Hampshire, and Greg Abbott of Texas have all announced they are ordering their troops home in the wake of the mistreatment.

“This is the most offensive thing I’ve ever heard. No one should ever question the loyalty or professionalism of the Texas National Guard,” Abbott tweeted. “I authorized more than 1,000 to go to DC. I’ll never do it again if they are disrespected like this.”

“I’ve ordered the immediate return of all New Hampshire National Guard from Washington DC. They did an outstanding job serving our nation’s capital in a time of strife and should be graciously praised, not subject to substandard conditions,” Sununu added.
