Journalists Join the Hate Hoax Craze

No longer content to report on hate hoaxes with a naivete so willful as to qualify as mendacity, liberal journalists have begun to create their own. Here is one brought to you by the information warfare commandos at WaPo and Politico:

A Washington Post blogger responsible for launching a false story about Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Tuesday published an official apology Wednesday.

Tufts professor and Washington Post blogger Daniel Drezner helped kickstart the narrative that Sessions had referred to illegal immigrants as “filth” while delivering a speech before border agents at the U.S.-Mexico border.

He picked up the falsehood from Josh Dawsey of Politico:

Dawsey’s tweet crudely distorts his own source.

Possibly finding the story too good to check, Drezner amplified the original calumny. This must have worked a few moonbats into five-alarm states of righteous rage:

As for the reality behind these tweets,

Sessions did not call illegal immigrants filth. As the transcript of his prepared remarks made clear, he was calling Mexican gangs and drug cartels “filth.” Furthermore, when it was time for Sessions to actually deliver the speech, he omitted the word “filth” entirely.

Just as immigrants are constantly conflated with illegal immigrants, illegal immigrants are conflated with foreign gangs and drug cartels. Therefore, anything you say about foreign criminals (or almost say) you have said about immigrants, proving that you are a racist who ought to be subjected to the Two Minutes Hate.

Drezner and Dawsey have stretched propagandizing to the point of fabricating a hate incident that did not happen. Please welcome them to the Hate Hoax List.

    Please don’t tell me any of you are surprised by this. WaPo is notorious for making up “facts” out of whole cloth ala the NYSlimes just as Politico is for not fact checking.

    I watched Sessions’ speech. He clearly did refer to Mexican gangs and drug cartels as “filth”, contrary to the story.

    And Sessions was right to say so.

    Let me be the first one to say that illegal aliens actually are filth. Illegal aliens are thieves—of tax dollars, of living space, and of the rights of citizenship. Through their theft, illegal aliens are depriving American children of a future. Only the liberals who support illegal aliens are filthier than they are.
