Fox News appears to erase references to white nationalists from a news article
Conservative media giant Fox News appears to have made changes to some of its original reporting over the weekend, reports that initially mentioned a rally of white nationalists outside the Manhattan mayor’s residence to protest against the vaccination warrants of the city.
Saturday afternoon, white supremacist activist Nick fuentes and his supporters – who call themselves “groypers” – are said to have gathered outside Gracie Mansion to protest New York City’s mandate to have all people vaccinated against COVID-19 to participate in activities at the inside.
Those activities include indoor dining, indoor fitness and indoor entertainment. The tenure – and the Brooklyn Nets star Kyrie Irvingrefusal to get the shot – led the All-Star goalie for the New York NBA team to be benched until his medical condition or tenure changed.
Mayor of New York Bill de Blasio also ordered the vaccination of public workers in the city such as firefighters and police officers, as well as health workers. Protests against the warrants in the city continue.
At Saturday’s rally, Fuentes, who has been called an anti-Semite, advocate of segregation and white nationalist leader, and his supporters reportedly clashed with far-left anti-fascist activists.

The daily beast said he wrote: “Fox News uses ADL talking points on me and AF”, adding: “Scum”.

Additionally, the new version was more critical of the “Antifa protesters,” later calling them “Antifa radicals,” while referring to America First and the Grypers as “anti-vaccine protesters.”
As previously reported, Fuentes is a supporter of “America First”, which is also the title of his podcast and the name of the group he founded, which he identifies as a “conservative Christian” organization. He publicly opposes, among other things, immigration – both illegal and legal – globalism, gay and transgender rights, and feminism.
