Media distorts characterization of photo as an attack on all Latino people…
(Joshua Paladino, Liberty Headlines) The mainstream media collectively accused former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee of “bigotry” after he tweeted a picture of latino men gesturing gang signs with the caption, “Nancy Pelosi introduces her campaign committee for the take back of the House.”

Huckabee meant the picture to highlight the flow of MS-13 gang members into the United States.
The gang signs used in the photo are typical of MS-13.
New Yorker Writer Adam Davidson compared the tweet to Nazi propaganda, USA Today reported.
I know we’re cautioned to go easy on the Nazi parallels, but this is too clear an example.
This is no different from a Nazi-era cartoon of criminal Jews.
Huckabee should be ostracized and ashamed. https://t.co/lmMzU75XKP

The media distorted the characterization of the photo as an attack on all Latino people, much like when President Donald Trump referred to MS-13 gang members as “animals” and the mainstream media said he was talking about all immigrants.
TV anchor Soledad O’Brien accused him of bigotry.
Governor Huckabee, still a bigot. https://t.co/n9a4qDVxzl
