“Wilding” ain’t news, taking down Trump is

Arizona Republic’s pathetic* attempt to reverse its death spiral

The Arizona Republic newspaper has long been known as the Periódico de la República de Arizona for its deep commitment to open borders and bonding to amnesty for the illegals invading Arizona — and fanning out to the rest of the U.S. It is also known as the Repugnant and the Repulsive, names given to the disseminator of skewed news, long before we ever heard of fake news. The Daily Regurgitation has become our favorite AKA, since identical stories and accompanying photos appear on consecutive days or even in the same issue. The exact report and photos on the Westward Ho hotel renovations ran Sunday and Monday.

Looking for coverage of the estimated 40 – 60 teen marauders who commandeered a BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) train Saturday night, robbing and beating passengers — leaving some with face and head injuries? You won’t find it here. The newspaper specializes in disseminating AP feed and USAToday leftward lurches. There is no op-ed page. Opposing views are not welcome.

Instead you’ll be treated to endless bashing of President Trump, routinely and appallingly referred to or depicted in editorial cartoons as Hitler — trivializing the systematic and gruesome murderer of millions. Though the mischaracterization is reprehensible, it’s what they do.

The shocking BART case is eerily similar to what became known as the “wilding” case involving a gang of teens who savagely brutalized a 28-year-old investment banker jogging through Central Park in 1989.  She was left unrecognizable and comatose by her attackers, who assaulted at least nine people during their rampage.

Though they distort the news the newspaper’s execs are savvy enough to understand harsh realities. Its readership is mainly retirees. They won’t be around forever. Insulting the intelligence of readers causes many of them to ditch their subscriptions such as when the newspaper endorsed scandal-plagued liberal Hillary Clinton for president.

Despite the gloom and doom reports from the Arizona Repugnant, the actual barometer of President Trump is American confidence in his policies. They are evidenced in the fact that the stock market continues to soar during his first hundred days, breaking records. This is today’ report.

Hard-copy issues aren’t cost effective. Even the foolish attempts at coolness fall flat.  Case in point was Monday’s main front page headline, “Valley has 99 problems, but triple digits ain’t one.” This accompanied a one paragraph follow-up. With literacy in short supply, it’s a fair bet the newspaper is no longer used as a teaching tool in classrooms.

* According to the Cambridge Dictionary, the word “pathetic“ is defined as “unsuccessful, useless or worthless.“ That definition fit’s the state’s largest newspaper to a “T.”

    The Arizona Republic is on life support, and deserves to be! I read it occasionally at the office and am appalled at the blatant hatred against Pres. Trump.

    In that original GOP presidential field of 17 candidates, I never thought of Donald Trump emerging as the front runner. However, he ran a winning campaign and America, (even the haters) are benefiting from his victory, regardless of the liberal’s inability to admit it.

    There is a mob mentality out there that is fostered by newspapers like the Arizona Republic and other media outlets. The hyena like pack that protests his every move is funded by anti-American, globalist multi billionaire George Soros. He also bankrolls Hillary Clinton and John McCain.. See a pattern here?

    Missing description of the “40-60 teens” – wonder why??? Police not releasing the video because some may be minors – really?

      Black youth are a substantial number of Oakland’s population. Poverty is high. Many belong to gangs.

        Vince – I know the demographics – what I was trying to point out is the propagandists will not report facts because they can’t stand to report truth only an agenda. And IF they were black youths/gang members it won’t fit their narrative of racists whites and how the Dem policies have decimated the communities. You provided facts :) thx

      I wasn’t questioning your information, just enlarging upon it. Your comments often mirror my thoughts.

      As to the Central Park jogger mentioned in the post, when that vicious crime occurred, even though some of the perpetrators were as young as 14, their names were all noted in the press. I have never thought protecting the IDs of criminals, regardless of their age, made any sense. If they are old enough to engage in brutality, they are old enough to be identified.

      Kathy: We were away over the Easter holiday and were talking with a couple from Des Moines, Iowa. They were ecstatic that their daughter just moved to CA. She’s a child psychologist in L.A., also has a non-profit business dealing with children and is working on her doctorate. They turned out to be very liberal, which was not a surprise. The subject of Chicago shootings (every weekend) came up and they both referred to the criminals as “teens” who have a ‘terrible’ upbringing – in poverty…….blah, blah, blah. I tried to be polite and listened…until I couldn’t take it any longer and said ‘I call them criminals, many of whom don’t like whites, who sometimes murder innocent people, including children. They seemed like very naïve folk from the Midwest. And I’m sure they didn’t vote for Trump. We need to stop protecting criminals with phony PC stuff.

      • Frankly Speaking says:

        Glad you’re back. Your comments were missed here. Also glad you set the liberals straight. Growing up in poverty is no excuse for criminality. I personally know several people who have overcome such obstacles though determination and a strong desire to succeed. I’m one of them!

    The story regarding the BART trains being targeted by “mobs of teens” is not new. This has been going on for some time, but the media fails to cover it. They’ve just within the past few weeks hired a new police chief for BART. Yes, the Bay Area Rapid Transit has its own police chief and department. Yet, not one uniformed officer or undercover officer was around on Saturday when this latest terroristic act took place.

    In this day of constant tweets, Instagram, snapchat, etc., I wonder why none of it got recorded.

    Cell phones were stolen by the dozens, yet it seems that none of the robbery victims or the police have tried to track their stolen phones.

    I notice that the California tourism board is running frequent ads on various cable TV channels. Wait till the out-of-towners find out that Jerry & Co. have just passed an additional 12 cent per gallon gas tax. Bandits.

    You may be interested to know that the light rail system here in the Valley has its own secret problems. Directly attributed to the fact that multiple political jurisdictions are involved in the decision making process on Every.Little. Thing.
    There are numerous government agencies and well as private sector companies in the daily mix, yet one doesn’t know what the other is doing.

    Just another boondoggle.

    This State could really benefit from some good ole investigative reporting. Digging for the ‘who, what, where, when, why, and how’
    has gone out of style for reporters and many police agencies.
    And law-abiding taxpayers and their families are always the ones who pay the price.
