Here's a hint for those that don't feel like watching 3-4 min of video....it's the hats and the Trump support that made it happen.
He starts out acknowledging that the media got it wrong...and then blames Trump and the hats. Bottom line, for Trevor Noah, yeah, it sucks that the kids got death threats but that's what the 1st Amendment is all about.
You straight-up lied.
You lied like just about every other goddamned right winger here talking about these videos.
I watched his clip. He didn't. He read about it on a RW media site, but to try to make it look like he's better than those liberals he's attacking, he didn't provide the link to the article he read before running here. He linked to the clip, to make it look like HE was better.
An honest review:
He criticizes people for not watching their own bias. He criticizes that smug teenagers. He criticizes the media for not searching for all the videos first. He criticizes every single video-taker because they filmed things to make themselves look like victims.
He criticizes the kids for claiming (lying) they were scared and trying to diffuse a situation when the video showed them being brazen assholes to others and loving it.
MAGA hats: his point, as he explained painstakingly, was that wearing Trump’s MAGA gear conveys a very explicit message, which other people pick up on. Hence, he notes, an awful lot of Republicans don’t go around wearing MAGA gear. Thus, it’s pretty reasonable to assume that if someone is wearing a MAGA hat, they’re a strong believer in Trump’s anti-immigrant message. That’s what he talked about so damn much on the campaign trail, and in office.
In fact, he says it was “*****y” that the kid got death threats. He’s saying that’s wrong. Is this not serious enough for a comedian on a comedy show or something?
He then says the whole PROTEST thing was what the ‘national motto’ (or mode?) is all about: you go PROTEST, he says, then everyone goes home. That’s what the 1st is about. He does NOT in any sense say that the 1st Amd is about protecting death threats or anything like it.
I repeat: the point was that wearing a MAGA hat deliberately conveys a specific political message, so don't be offended if you do it and someone assumes you agree with that message. (my addition: It'd be like wearing Bernie gear than claiming you were gotten so horribly wrong because you actually think he's an evil socialist.)
In reality, he criticized the death threats.
And, in reality, he was saying the events in the videos are what America really is kind of about: protest, say your thing, go home.
Conclusion: Luther lied again. And I’m fairly sure we can guess what he thinks about anyone he sees wearing Bernie gear, though that would be naughty. Two wrongs don’t make a right.
