Baltimore Proving There Are “Two Americas” – and One Is A Potemkin Village Supported By Media…

A Potemkin Village is a best described as: “an impressive façade or show designed to hide an undesirable fact or condition“.

The media narrative surrounding the Baltimore Riots is one such construct.

These undesirable facts and conditions the progressives desperately need to avoid are  being brutally spotlighted in Baltimore Maryland. A cultural petri dish of necessary avoidance to hide the reality of progressive racial failure.

One easy to identify example of their efforts therein has recently surfaced.  It surrounds the media’s desperate desire to hide the violence within Baltimore.

The staff of the City Paper of Baltimore was challenged in their reporting. City Paper editors and writers framing the rioting masses as “peaceful protestors“, while the public at large sees “violent antagonists“.

One of the City Paper editors, Caitlin Goldblatt, was recently challenged over their peaceful protestor narrative with a picture of a young black male attempting to rob a white woman by snatching her purse. Stunningly Glodblatt responded by saying she was actually in the picture and what took place was factually divergent from the impression of the reader.

As you can see Goldblatt claimed the woman was actually trying to rob the young black male.

Of course the progressive co-builders of the Potemkin Village were thrilled to have such a poignant reference to use in their arsenal of deflection – and they quickly dispatched themselves to dispel the story of white folks being attacked by young black males.

However, the claim of Ms. Goldblatt is 100% nonsense.  The factual reality of the situation is exactly what was initially put forth:  The black street thug was trying to rob the lady. (See Video of The Attempt Here and embed below)

A person is left to ask themselves why would a direct eye-witness lie so blatantly about was taking place? A secondary issue arrises when you think of the employ of Ms. Goldblatt as an “editor” for the media outlet in the city.

caitlin 1Obviously Caitlin Goldblatt knows she was lying. Obviously the entire construct of her lie held an agenda. And obviously Ms. Goldblatt is selling the lie to the consuming public with an intentional design to hide or conceal the undesirable facts and conditions around Baltimore.

That’s how Potemkin Villages are constructed by media -who are so entrenched with an ideological bias- they lose complete credibility to the larger audience.

However, it does allow the façade to remain – and, in a larger sense, that’s really the objective.

Unfortunately, these lies have real life consequences for those who are living in the village (Baltimore) and subject to the action, or lack thereof, of the public officials who are by condition and consequence forced to retain those lies.

That’s exactly why the Major of Baltimore, the Potemkin Village, can’t reach out to the Governor for help. Meanwhile the villagers are attacked by the real life mob they are not allowed to admit exists among them.

In a larger sense, and given the context being highlighted, perhaps for once Hillary Clinton was right.

It does take a village, a Potemkin Village, to raise a modern more progressive child like Caitlin Goldblatt who will simply choose to polish the façade and continue selling the moonbattery.

…. and so it goes!

    Wow, just wow. Ms. Goldblatt has a lot of ‘splainin’ to do and some big apologies and maybe some slander damages (false accusation of a crime–attempted robbery–is slander per se) to pay the poor redheaded woman who was trying to calm things down and stop a thug from snatching her purse. But then, what are we to believe? The prognazis’ agitprop or our lying, video-enhanced eyes?

    BTW, City Paper is a weekly, mostly entertainment oriented tabloid. Now even more poignantly than before, like a provincial Baltimoron version of Rolling Stone. Don’t attribute too much significance to it. The Sun is the real newspaper in B’more, though it may not be a whole lot better.

      Liberals when caught don’t have to explain, they take care of the system and the system takes care of them, Lois Lerner? There is selective prosecution, like Bob Menendez, yes, but Harry reid, No. There is the chance that a few have to answer before a Judge, like Jesse Jackson Jr, so it not 100% guaranteed. Obama biggest push back hasn’t been the Republican Congress, but the Courts. Harry Reid went with the nuclear option to get Obama’s Court nominees appointed. The Courts will stop Obama’s Immigration Reform, not Congress withholding money from the DHS, same with ObamaCare Exchanges Tax Deduction.

    Another “witness” from the same propoganda rag tries to explain the incident but it is so convoluted and poorly written I can’t make much sense of it. One thing is clear though. The thug purse snatcher had looted vodka in that large bag.

    The pleading woman followed the protesters up to the bar Frank & Nic’s. She was reaching out at people and yelling. I stopped her from walking toward a protester who was throwing a chair at a window, and that’s when the picture was taken. City Paper contributors Caitlin Goldblatt and Gianna DeCarlo were also talking to the woman at this point and a protester with a big bag and a bottle of vodka that he clearly stole from one of the bars (it has a pourer on it) approached her. That’s where we got the image of a protester, who was most certainly looting, who looks like he’s stealing a purse, but I was there and I’m really not sure if that’s what is happening.

    He has Mark Fuhrmann on as well, who has struck me over the years as being slightly opportunistic but he just made a good honest reference when he spoke of the rioters as “the enemy” and said, “The enemy is determining the ROE here…..” and made comments along those lines.

    Hannitty often sounds like an antagonistic adolescent goofball but he gets some good interviews and these today are that.

      Tuesday morning, Sheriff Clarke fighting the good fight;

      *Clarke said it was clear to him that the mayor failed to have an operational plan or anticipate the riots and looting. 

      “To have called for a curfew tomorrow is malfeasance. To have called for a curfew tomorrow is misconduct in public office.”
      “One of the things I hate to see, as this city is being consumed by all this rioting and violence, is the police in retreat. I never want to see the police in retreat in this kind of situation,”

      “I’m tired of seeing our nation’s finest being put into these situations with no way to be able to defend themselves. You cannot put law enforcement officers into a riot situation and tie one hand behind their back with a main goal of not being able to escalate things. You meet force with force. That’s the only thing that these rioters understand. There were 15 casualties on the police side and I haven’t heard of one casualty on the side of the rioters,”

      “Those were pieces of concrete being thrown, which I think in some circumstances, a deadly force response is justifiable. I’m not saying to fully unload. But at the same time, when I see cops getting bricks and pieces of concrete thrown at them and all they can do is ward it off? They’re in a losing situation,”

      This is sub-human behavior. This is a subculture of the black community in Baltimore and it has to be crushed.*

      On an aside it is funny that Fox News calls Sheriff Clarke’s statement’s of fact about Mayor Rawlings-Blake “lashing out.”

    Further, has anyone else noticed how the MSM camera angles ALWAYS miss trouble? The helicopters can zoom in but don’t, the cameramen on the street are always focused at the police? We see them being hit, but NOT who is doing the hitting? Has anyone noticed how the left MSM doesn’t even bother reporting (CNN) or report on something else? or, if they do report, the reporting is generally of the bleeding heart variety: “the Church” and “the community leaders” “coming together”… that kinda thing?
    Or did anyone notice the woman on WBAL constantly freudian slipping: “some POLICE are currently throwing stones”, or “a handful of POLICE rioting down here”

    While correlation isn’t causation, has anyone noticed the complete and utter impotence of western civilization lately?

      Also notice last night that as one camera swung from the police line to pan across the crowd it dipped, and displayed nothing but belts, legs, and shoes. Then it rose again when pointed back at the police. This happened over and over again. Great care was taken to not show any faces in the crowd. Actually, probably would have gotten themselves beaten up rather quickly if they’d showed crowd faces.

My acquaintance, like Caitlin apparently, tells me that she learned in her vaunted Ivy League J-school that there is no objective standard of truth. We all have our own truth, and her job as a journalist is to report her truth to the masses in order to broaden our perspectives and help us to think what we SHOULD think, as opposed to what we WOULD think if there were somehow an OBJECTIVE standard of truth and someone accidentally reported it.

      She actually said this to me in all of her earnest, passionate millennial seriousness. I told her that I hated to disappoint her, but there IS an objective standard of truth. That she is entitled to her own OPINION, but not her own FACTS.

    Fortunately for me, my part of Baltimore has been quiet the last few hours. While leaving work as late as I did was probably not my brightest move, everything’s okay and I’m headed home.

    I’m home. My job is on the east side of Baltimore; a lot of what’s going on is on the west side. Which truth be told, doesn’t mean much, since Balmer is a small city.

    I didn’t know that things had gone bad as I was wrapped up in work, or I wouldn’t have left so late. There were very few people on my shuttle for this time of night…

You will see some of the violence of the evening and I think you’ll see me trying to help two people that I thought were in danger. One of them is struck with a bag of peanuts and falls to the crown and you can hear me try to explain to her that I’m with the protestors but I am trying to help her out. You’ll also hear me attempt to reason with the woman from the widely-shared images, trying to explain to her that she needed to get inside and that her being out there and walking towards the protestors was not helping. You also hear me screaming like a loud asshole at her and I regret that. I was trying to help and I could’ve done better.

      This is a good vid of the action @ 7:45. Based on this video and the one below @ 2:22, I think the blonde girl did throw the stool, though both videos pan away during the actual throw. The stool is definitely further forward on the curb by the time the camera pans back though, and she could be said to be making a ‘come at me bro’ stance.

      I think where the blonde girl got hit with peanuts can be seen on the overhead ‘Chaos in Baltimore’ video above @ 2:05. The lamppost is obscuring the view, but it does look like Brandon could be helping her up off the floor and then she gets escorted away by somebody else. It’s hard to see because of the lamppost in the way though.

    This is not a “dumb distraction” that the City Paper claims. Whether you see the video or still shots of it, it is pretty clear to any reasonable person, within the context of the looting and rioting, that she is being robbed of her purse. Why is a woman wearing high heels want to rob a black man’s “purse.”? C’mon. Really???
