Instead media portrays perpetrator as victim because she was pepper-sprayed in response.
There is a continuing pattern of the media falsely trying to portray Trump rally attendees as violent, when in fact almost all confrontations were provoked by violent and intimidating conduct of anti-Trump protesters.
We saw this extensively when Trump’s Chicago rally was shut down after near riots by anti-Trump activists who infiltrated the rally venue.
And we saw it yesterday at a Trump rally in Janesville, WI.
The headlines, such as at The Hill, scream about how a protester was peppered sprayed directly in the face.

I don’t know the man’s age, but in many states a physical assault on a person over a certain age (usually 60 or 65) get accelerated charging, turning what would be a misdemeanor battery into a felony.
As critical as I have been of Trump and some of his supporters, it’s equally true that the media has an agenda.
It’s the same agenda used against the Tea Party — to portray an overwhelmingly peaceful group of people as violent, and to portray the violent leftist perpetrators as victims.
