If there is one thing the media hates, it’s conservative minorities – especially conservative minority women.
The press will come guns blazing at anyone they think debunks the lie the media likes to spread that conservatives are only old, white men.
That’s why The Washington Post tried to destroy one pro-Trump Congresswoman with this racist attack.
Anna Paulina Luna is one of the rising stars coming out of the Midterm elections.
The Trump-supported Latina conservative won election to Congress and then became one of the 20 holdouts refusing to back Kevin McCarthy for Speaker of the House until he made concessions on rules and committee assignments to empower conservatives.
Luna bucking the Washington, D.C. establishment made her a target.
The Washington Post published a hit piece entitled “The Making of Anna Paulina Luna” where reporters Jacqueline Alemany and Alice Crites tried to turn Luna into another George Santos who fabricated her entire backstory.
Alemany and Crites claimed Luna never survived a home invasion, grew up with a father who spent time in jail, did not grow up in poverty, and that Luna was a registered Democrat.
These were all lies.
“Holy sh!t The Washington Post just tried to claim my dad was never incarcerated, left out comments from my mom, said I was a registered Democrat, and did not report a convo they had with a former roommate, and interviewed ‘family’ I don’t talk to. This is comical,” Luna wrote on Twitter.
The reporters wanted a story that fit the narrative they were trying to craft – that Luna was a serial fabulist who created a fictitious biography to win an election.
Alemany and Crites did not check simple facts and deliberately left out the perspective of individuals who knew Luna because their testimony did not fit their desired narrative.
The idea Luna was a registered Democrat in Washington State was an easily disprovable lie.
Washington State does not register by party.
You declared which party you are voting for in a primary.
The Post was forced to issue a correction when Luna and others pointed out this absurd mistake.
“A previous version of this story incorrectly stated that Anna Paulina Luna was registered as a Democrat in Washington state in 2017 based on an erroneous voter registration database. Washington state only requires voters to declare their party affiliation when they cast a ballot in a Presidential Primary,” The Post’s correction read.
A simple Google search would have provided this information.
But The Post didn’t care to check or didn’t want to check because the facts would have interfered with the story the reporters were trying to tell.
The Post then lied about Luna not being present during a home invasion.
In the story, the reporters falsely claimed that Luna’s roommate Brittany Brooks was the only person mentioned as home during the break-in that occurred in 2009 when the two lived together in Missouri when Luna served in the Air Force.
In reality, Luna’s name appeared on the police report and The Post was forced to issue a second correction.
“This story has been amended to clarify that Luna’s roommate in Missouri was the only person interviewed by police after a break-in at their apartment; she was not the only person mentioned in the police report,” The Post’s correction read.
The Post interviewed two individuals – Martina Michelle and Lamar Carson – who knew Luna, but left out what they said.
Michelle said The Post only quoted Brooks because Brooks had an ax to grind with Luna over politics.
“She has had this weird — I don’t know — obsession or vendetta against Anna, because she’s always bringing her up on Facebook, or Instagram, trying to cause issues,” Michelle stated.
In a statement to Fox News, Luna slammed The Post for a racist attack because leftists cannot stomach the idea of a conservative Latina challenging the Left.
“As I’ve said before, and as The Washington Post has clearly showcased, anyone who is a conservative minority is a threat to leftist control,” Luna said in a statement to Fox News Digital. “They can try to discredit me, but unfortunately for them, the facts completely blow their story out of the water.”
