I don’t know about you, but despite seeing how much media has lied and spun things over time for political reasons, the breathtaking dishonesty with which they have been covering the BLM/Antifa anarchy is just a whole other level of manipulation.
From the poor “peaceful protester” myth about Antifa in Portland to the Trump “secret police” squad story, the lack of facts and the lack of understanding of government is just something else.
But I have to admit the media take on the naked woman “protester” in Portland is major league spin.
Here they go:

Let’s see what they say:

They’re literally comparing here to the Tank Man, the man who stood in the way of Chinese tanks coming in to crush actual peaceful student protesters. Government soldiers killed hundreds, if not thousands. No one is sure of the actual count.
To compare this naked person standing in front of police to help violent anarchists is as gross an analogy as one might get.
This is some serious mental illness not just on the part of the woman, but on the part of any media that thinks that is trying to spin this as somehow iconic.
She was able to sit there, because she knew that she was in no real danger from the police, unlike Tank Man. She was actually doing yoga moves and preening for the camera.
Then they made up this whole thing about her forcing them to leave with her “power.” As opposed to, since she was just being an idiot and not attacking them they left.
Hardly iconic, but I’ll go with idiotic.
Not to mention incredibly representative of all the problems inherent now in Portland, seriously messed up people looking for attention.
If you were impressed by that lady getting naked in front of Portland police, they have powerful protests like that every night at a strip club.
