Conservative Clergy of Color Condemns AP’s Orwellian Revision of the Term, “Riot”

October 5, 2020

The Ministry of Truth is hard at work

 

Tampa, FL – In a stunning move that’s getting no attention from the mainstream media, The Associated Press quietly changed its definition of the term “riot” last week to better conform to the Black Lives Matter narrative. In a series of tweets posted September 30, the AP now urges reporters to “Use care” when using the term riot because “riot suggests uncontrolled chaos and pandemonium.”

“This is horrifying! The AP relinquished its credibility years ago, but I have to say this is a new low. They’ve now firmly planted their flag as Black Lives Matter’s Ministry of Truth. As far as I’m concerned they are now the Orwellian Press,” said Bishop Aubrey Shines, founder of CCC and author of the new book “Eight Questions About Race.

The AP goes on to say that focusing on property damage “has been used in the past to stigmatize broad swaths of people protesting against lynching, police brutality or for racial justice, going back to the urban uprisings of the 1960s.”

As the icing on the cake, the AP finally suggests that a protest can be “peaceful or violent,” despite the Constitution clearly stating otherwise.

“I’m happy to know yet another mainstream media outlet has thrown its lot in with BLM. No one is talking about this story when it’s one of the most critical facing us today. A protest cannot be violent, end of story, and no amount of revisionist garbage like this will change that fact,” Bishop Shines said.
