“A pile of rocks”: Confederate monument controversy is fake news

Jay FayzaRebel Columnist

Have you ever heard of "the Summer of the Shark"? It refers to the summer of 2001, when the American news media, despite having no evidence, spun the narrative that shark attacks were on the rise

The media often takes small stories and turns them into big ones, and it's happening right now in regards to Confederate statues and flags.

I grew up in America. I've seen my fair share of Confederate statues and it doesn't bother me in the slightest.

And it's not just me. A poll from NPR/PBS Newshour shows 62 per cent of Americans wanted the Confederate monuments to stay while 27 per cent want them removed.

Among black people, 44 per cent want the statues to remain and 40 per cent want them removed. 

Just like "the Summer of the Shark," the media has got people worked up and angry over a nothing burger.

More evidence the Mainstream Media is responsible for inciting hatred, violence and inspiring thuggery.

And of course the moronic left thinks they have the majority on their side. LMAO!

Jay Fayza, you’re right, it is despicable!

That’s exactly what it is.
A distraction from the real issues. Such as the leftist violence underway in the U.S.
