Kneeling was protesting the growing police state
-Too many deaths by police
-Cops that look the other way when dirty things go down. Cops that have eachothers back rather than the backs of those whom they swore to serve.
- A justice system that imprisons more people than every other country combined.
---Mainstream media makes it about the military and about the flag.

The Tea Party was about corrupt government
---- Mainstream media made it look like just a bunch of rednecks

Occupy Wall Street was about corrupt banking system and wall street being in bed with the government.
---- Mainstream media made it look like just a bunch of hippys

Very observant OP Another example is climate change, they want just enough fear that you vote Democratic, but not so much fear that you go off and form a third party with Bernie Sanders. So when things get too hot, and their corporate backers become imperiled, they dial back the thermometer:

Protesting the Dakota pipeline is not cut and dried

Why Obama’s top scientist just called keeping fossil fuels in the ground ‘unrealistic’

[link to www.washingtonpost.com (secure)]

Then on the other side of the world, that no one sees, this goes on, but never gets reported in the MSM:

How Hillary Clinton’s State Department Sold Fracking to the World

h**p://www.*otherjones.com/politics/2014/09/hillary-clinton-f​racking-shale-state-department-chevron/

Despite the Paris Agreement, China and India Continue To Build Coal Plants

The synopsis is that if you just get your news from the MSM, you have very limited or erroneous view of the world. As Julian Assange pointed out, when you read something from the MSM, you are reading "weapon-ized text".

In occupy wallstreet coverage mainstream media never did a story on corruption in wall street.

No story about political donations.

No story of about legislation that doesn't make any sense because it benefits a corporation and hurts the people.

No story about said legislation being strategically thrown into the middle of seemly unrelated bills or budget proposals

Did see many stories about people breaking windows of a bank. No mention that undercover officers were instructed to play apart of the crowd, were the first ones in the bank, and were actively trying to get people to go inside the bank

Did see many stories of the trash left behind. No mention that protesters were driven out of camps by police before they could even gather their belongings. No stories of the police being instructed to cut tents, break laptops, and that they created much of the mess.
