It was nothing more than a caption on an image from Tuesday night’s violence by anti-Trump protesters after the president spoke in Phoenix, but it has created a significant backlash for Reuters, the news organization that transmitted it.

It showed a man in a cowboy hat, holding a crutch, addressing someone with some vehemence. Couple other people were standing around, including one taking pictures.

“Pro-Trump supporters face off with peace activists during protests outside a Trump rally in Phoenix. REUTERS/Sandy Huffaker,” said the caption.

Which generated a collective gasp from those who commented on Twitchy and other locations.

Monica Crowley simply said “‘peace activists’” while Vince Coglianese added, “Didn’t the ‘peace activists’ throw rocks at the cops?”

The leftists who have been protesting Trump at his every appearance already call themselves “antifa,” an abbreviation for anti-fascist, but demand that any speech but their own be silenced, any ideas but their own are bigotry, and any goals but their own are “hate.”

Sen. Tom Coburn has come up with the answer to a Washington bureaucracy that doesn’t seem to care about the Constitution, or American people: An Article V convention, which he describes in “Smashing the DC Monopoly: Using Article V to Restore Freedom and Stop Runaway Government.”

The rally was in a state where Trump beat Hillary Clinton handily, and he was firing up his base.

“Eddie” responded to Reuters, “Antifa are peace activists now? Hard to process how disingenuous our media has become.”

Piper Fogle added, “What happened #2: Trump supporters in Phoenix blocked from leaving rally before being assaulted by left-wing rioters.”

“Asa J” said, “‘Peace activists’ This is how stupid the mainstream media thinks your are,” and “Connie Hair” said, “Calling antifa ‘peace activists’ is Orwellian.”

Explained “BlueReaganite”: “‘Peace activists’ Throw Urine. Slash horses. Attack grandma. Smash windows. Set fires. Throw rocks. Harass police. Shoot Congressmen.”

Twitchy also reported how anti-Trump protesters threw punches at Trump supporters in a pickup truck, and how police fired what apparently was a pepper spray shell at an anti-Trump protester, hitting him in the groin, leaving him writhing on the ground. This happened just a few seconds after he had kicked a tear gas bomb back at police.

AP cast the event negatively for the president, claiming he was “trying to recapture the fervor that helped put him in office.”

The agency reported the president said he thinks the U.S. will probably end the North American Free Trade Agreement, criticized Arizona’s Sens. Jeff Flake and John McCain, although not by name, saying the Senate was only one vote away from overhauling Obamacare (McCain voted against it), and another senator was “weak on borders.”

President Trump also said it may take a federal government shutdown to get Congress to provide funding for his border wall.

And he signaled he may pardon former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, saying the lawman is “going to be just fine” following a conviction for contempt of court.

AP revealed that it was “protesters” who “engaged in minor scuffles and shouting matches with President Donald Trump’s supporters.”

The anti-Trump protesters were reported to be throwing water bottles at police, who responded with tear gas, with an official statement confirming, “Police have responded with pepper balls and oc spray in an attempt to disperse the crowd and stop the assaults.”

It was Politico that reported when CNN anchor Don Lemon was infuriated by Trump’s speech, he unleashed a rant:

“It was devoid of wisdom,” Lemon claimed of Trump’s comments, on air. “There was no gravitas. There was no sanity there. He was like a child blaming a sibling on something else.”

Lemon went on and on, “Well, what do you say to that? I’m just going to speak from the heart here – what we have witnessed is a total eclipse of the facts. He’s unhinged. It’s embarrassing.”

Fox News host Sean Hannity, however, explained why some of the Trump comments appeared.

“It is a disgrace how other media lied to the American people. And they continue to lie every single day,” he said.

Sen. Tom Coburn has come up with the answer to a Washington bureaucracy that doesn’t seem to care about the Constitution, or American people: An Article V convention, which he describes in “Smashing the DC Monopoly: Using Article V to Restore Freedom and Stop Runaway Government.”
