Outrage erupted over video purporting to show Border Patrol agents using whips on migrants in Del Rio, Texas, but many pointed out that the media was incorrectly reporting on the use of their reins.
The images captured by freelance photographer Paul Ratje near the migrant encampment quickly went viral online as many assumed the agents were using whips to dissuade migrants. This photograph by Paul Ratje (of a Border Patrol agent in Texas using a whip to stop Haitian refugees carrying bag… https://t.co/GqYwqCkYGh — Josh Kun (@Josh Kun) 1632162872.0 During Monday’s White House media briefing, a reporter asked press secretary Jen Psaki to comment on the video of the border agents “using what appear to be whips” on migrants.
“I have seen some of the footage. I don’t have the full context. I can’t imagine what context would make that appropriate, but I don’t have additional details,” responded Psaki. “I don’t think anyone seeing that footage would think it’s acceptable or appropriate.” Yamiche Alcindor of PBS pressed Psaki on the issue further, and described the Border Patrol as “seemingly using whips” before asking if they should be fired.
“I mean, Yamiche, it’s all good questions. We just saw this footage. It’s horrible to watch. I just have to get more information on it,” she replied.
CNN’s April Ryan interrupted but Psaki talked over her.
“Again, April, I don’t have more information on it. I’ve also seen the video. I can’t imagine what the scenario is where that would be appropriate,” Psaki said.
Ryan later retweeted the false claim that they were “whipping” the migrants, while Alcindor had earlier tweeted the false claim that one of the agents had “swung his whip menacingly” at the Haitians.
Many on social media ridiculed the news media personalities and pundits who repeated the false claim that whips were used in migrants.
“The reins are held in the rider’s hands. They are usually long enough to perhaps APPEAR whip-like and occasionally a rider will use it to spur the mount a bit. But reins are not whips. Border Patrol doesn’t carry whips,” explained reporter Mike Glenn of the Washington Times. Here’s the […]
PLEASE Help Us Fight the Good Fight
Today’s Goliath is the Mainstream Media Industrial Complex that brainwashes the masses.
Our mission is very straightforward: To counter the false narratives and nefarious agendas destroying America today. It isn’t easy for obvious reasons; despite incredible growth over the last year we are still a very tiny fish in a huge media pond. But we’re fighting and we will continue to do so, Lord willing, for as long as we possibly can. The battle for America’s present and future is too important for us to back down to the giants that stand in our way.
We need help. I don’t want to say “desperately,” but the need is definitely great. You will notice we do not bow to Big Tech by running Google or Facebook ads. So many in conservative media do because it’s lucrative, but I just can’t imagine taking a paycheck from the minions of evil. That’s why we’re so dependent on our readers to pay the bills and expand our reach.
If you have the means, please donate through our GivingFuel page or via PayPal. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
