The Main Stream Media AND Washington “Swamp,” rained a hellstorm of blistering criticism on President Donald Trump labeling the Fake News Media as “The Enemy of the People.”
At the top of the blubbering heap of Anti-Trump crybabies was, of course, the abusively bias “news” network CNN. Yet, ever since the Charlottesville Riots, CNN has been showing themselves to be exactly that; an enemy of the American people.
Sure, they might not be an enemy to their foaming-at-the-mouth Radical Leftist “fans.” But for the nearly 60 Million Voters who elected Donald Trump, CNN has become something worse than “Fake News.” They’re dangerously close to becoming America’s loudest hate group, and the shameless endorsers of a new wave of anti-conservative domestic terrorism.
Here are five reasons why…
#1: CNN Is Irresponsibly Bias Against Conservatives
This was true ^ LONG before Donald Trump ever entered the picture. The problem is, NO Conservative candidate had the balls to stand up to CNN before Trump came along. But, since the day he announced his candidacy, Donald Trump has gone after CNN’s dishonest anti-conservative bias with boxing gloves.
Even now, President Trump refuses to kowtow to CNN’s loaded questions, false presuppositions and annoying habit of selectively quoting him and building inaccurate narratives around things he’s said.
This is the NUMBER ONE REASON Trump won in 2016. It’s also why I believe he and his support base will replace the Anti-Trump Republicans with Pro-Trump Candidates in 2018 AND win re-election in 2020.
Trump is the ONLY Presidential Candidate who has confronted CNN, and other dishonest, liberally bias “News” organizations, as the undercover propaganda operations they are.
Of course, practically everyone in the media has some political bias. That’s understandable. We’re only human. Conservatives like Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Mark Levin, Ann Coulter, Jeanine Pirro, Mark Stein and MANY others have a clear bias against the Political Left.
But nearly EVERYONE in the Conservative Media will OPENLY ADMIT their political biases. For example, Rush Limbaugh introduces his radio program as “The Limbaugh Institute for Anti-Leftist Studies” in practically EVERY one of his daily shows.
Yet, CNN stubbornly cowers behind the false pretense of objectivity and neutrality, while arrogantly positioning themselves as objective “journalists.” Still, their actions are showing smart Americans that CNN is not only irresponsibility bias against Conservative Americans, they’re shamelessly dishonest.
CNN ignored dozens of blatant Democrat scandals during the Obama Presidency. Their employees have handed debate questions to candidates like Hillary Clinton in advance, in hope to tilt the debate in her favor. They were caught red-handed helping Debbie Wasserman Schultz rig the Democratic Nomination in favor of Hillary Clinton.
They’ve been caught giving editorial authority to Liberal Politicians. At the same time, they selectively edit statements from Conservatives and re-contextualize them to create false, negative narratives.
During moments of the 2016 Presidential Debates, CNN’s debate “Moderators,” took it upon themselves to debate Trump instead of acting as neutral moderators.
CNN has re-positioned some of Trump’s JOKES as serious statements, in a desperate attempt to create false narratives. They’ve even bullied a teenage kid into removing a playful anti-CNN meme from his Reddit account. And of course, in practically EVERY White House Press Conference, Fake News Dough-Boy Jim Acosta badgers Trump and his Press Secretaries with loaded questions and false dilemmas, while incessantly interrupting them like a butthurt five-year-old kid as try to respond.
Even if CNN were JUST as hard on Liberal Politicians (which they aren’t) these behaviors would STILL be text book examples of journalistic malpractice.
Again, everyone has some political bias. But hiding behind the pretense of objective and neutrality while at the same time acting like the official Public Relations firm of one political party is flat out dishonest. Unless CNN practices SOME professional humility and even admits the possibility, that they MIGHT be out-of-control with their anti-conservative bias, they won’t have a prayer of saving their credibility.
But that’s just the first of CNN’s problems….
#2: CNN Has Been Irrationally Bias Against White Americans
Racism is an ugly and dangerous brand of ignorance. Every decent American knows this. But CNN and their ilk often support an irrational idea which is, in my opinion, worse than garden-variety racism. It’s the idea that racism and bigotry against White Americans is not only acceptable, but virtuous.
For example, CNN’s Jake Tapper has, during public interviews, minimized violence against whites. CNN has welcomed guests who make sport of violence against whites. They’ve hosted white-guilt-ridden closest racists who push anti-white narratives for the sake of positioning themselves as morally superior to other whites. CNN’s Anderson Cooper has welcomed narratives that rationalize anti-white hate crimes by blaming the attack on the VICTIM’S “mental health” while pretending the attackers motives are “still unknown.”
When Donald Trump won the 2016 Election, CNN Commentator Van Jones called it a “White Lash” against a Black President and a changing America. How many of Donald Trump’s 60 Million Voters voted AGAINST Hillary Clinton because of OBAMA’S race? None that I know of. All the Trump voters I know, many of whom were NOT white, did it because they thought he’d do a better job than Hillary Clinton.
Besides, so what if White Americans DID vote AGAINST the party (Democrats) that uses anti-white race-baiting as their primary campaign strategy?
Can you really accuse people of being bigots when they vote for candidates who DON’T demonize them in order to advance a political agenda?
Are white American’s required to tolerate being the targets of bigotry just to PROVE that they’re NOT bigots? That seems pretty damn racist to me.
But CNN took their hate to a new level when they politicized the Charlottesville riots in order to paint ALL Trump supporters as “White Supremacists by Default.” This is where CNN goes from bias and dishonest, to dangerous….
#3: CNN Recently Endorsed Domestic Terrorist Groups
CNN has shamelessly REFUSED to acknowledge the “Alt-Left’s” responsibility for starting the Charlottesville riots. Instead, they’ve unapologetically sided with them.
But what many people still don’t know that the Charlottesville riots started as mere non-violent protests. Yes, hundreds of the protesters were White Supremacists. But others were ordinary Americans who showed up to protest the removing of Robert E. Lee’s Statue. Donald Trump referred to these protestors as “very fine people.”
I’ve included a picture of them to the right of this paragraph. Do you see any Nazi or KKK items in this picture? Nope. Just American flags and some Pro-Trump memorabilia.
Yet, CNN has REFUSED to acknowledge that these people were even PRESENT in Charlottesville. Instead, in their usual dishonest manner, they re-interrupted the President’s “very fine people,” comment to be a comment about the White Supremacist protestors.
Personally, I don’t see the value in having a statue of a general who fought in favor of slavery in the Civil War. But that doesn’t change the fact that some America wanted the statue to stay. And NOT all of them are White Supremacists.
Is it right to lump every Conservative American in with the Radical Right bigots? CNN seems to think so. And I’ll show you shocking evidence of how far they’re willing to go with this narrative in a moment. But there’s another fact about Charlottesville CNN is completely ignoring.
The REAL White Supremacists were in Charlottesville on Friday night AND Saturday Night. Antifa and Black Lives Matter were only there Saturday, and that’s when the violence started. This is NOT a coincidence. Antifa was been using violence as a tool for intimidating their political opponents since long before Charlottesville.
In fact, Black Lives Matter interrupted the moment of silence to honor these fallen officers at the 2016 DNC Convention by chanting their slogan. One of their “Leaders” even threatened to riot in the streets if Donald Trump won the election. Anyone who saw the weeks of Anti-Trump rioting knows that they, and other Radical Leftist groups, made good on this threat.
But of course, CNN calls these riots “protests.” Even when the “protestors,” start fires, break windows, loot stores, smash cars, illegally block traffic and attack people who try to put out the fires.
And on Saturday night in Charlottesville, Antifa showed up AGAIN in their regular battle gear: black masks, shields, baseball bats, tear gas, nail-studded boards and balloons loaded with piss and shit. Black Lives Matter showed up with baseball bats. That’s when the violence started.
It ended when a 32 year-old woman was tragically killed by a White Supremacist driving a dodge charger. The “man” driving this car is now in jail on charges of murder, as he should be. But, are we really supposed to ignore the violence of Antifa and Black Lives Matter simply because the White Supremacists retaliated with violence themselves?
Again, CNN seems to think so. In fact, they’ve even endorsed Antifa with statements about them trying to achieve “peace through violence,” and by saying that there was also “violence on both sides of World War II.” This second excuse is disturbingly fallacious in two ways…
- World War II was a WAR, not a street riot
Violence is part of the package when nations are at war. But we’re talking about a street protest that only turned into a riot after the Alt-Left attacked the Alt-Right. Is CNN suggesting that America is already in a Civil War?
Or are they giving Antifa and Black Lives Matter a green light to make the FIRST STRIKE in our next Civil War? Maybe they’re just making a horribly fallacious argument. Either way, conflating a street riot with a World War is horribly dishonest and irrational way to excuse violence. Especially considering this….
- The Nazis started World War II
By saying there was “violence on both sides of World War II,” CNN is ignoring the fact that the “bad guys,” started the violence, while the “good guys” ended it. Of course, the riot in Charlottesville wasn’t that cut and dried. There were “bad guys” on both sides. But one side started the violence. And the ONLY group who would have been justified in finishing it, the Charlottesville police, simply stood by while the violence escalated.
Why didn’t the Charlottesville police do their job? Could it have anything to do with the Mayor of Charlottesville wanting Charlottesville to be the “Capital” of the Anti-Trump Resistance? Was he hoping that Antifa and Black Lives Matter would prevail and that no “innocent” people would be hurt or killed?
One thing is for sure. There’s a term we use to describe organized groups who use violence to advance a political agenda. Check out the United States official definition terrorism and judge for yourself where I’m going with this….
“[An] act of terrorism, means any activity that (A) involves a violent act or an act dangerous to human life that is a violation of the criminal laws of the United States or any State, or that would be a criminal violation if committed within the jurisdiction of the United States or of any State; and (B) appears to be intended (i) to intimidate or coerce a civilian population; (ii) to influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion; or (iii) to affect the conduct of a government by assassination or kidnapping.”
(SOURCE: United States Code Congressional and Administrative News, 98th Congress, Second Session, 1984, Oct. 19, volume 2; par. 3077, 98 STAT. 2707 [West Publishing Co., 1984])
At the time of this blog, more than 250,000 Americans have signed a petition to have Antifa labeled a Terrorist organization.
Still, CNN and their ilk rationalize Radical Left Violence by saying that certain types of SPEECH are “violent.” How can speech be violent?
An if we agree to label certain speech as violence, aren’t we dangerously close to the “thought policing” George Orwell talks about in his book “1984?”
Even if we passed laws against “violent” speech, what makes Antifa the judge, jury AND executioners in such matters?
If someone says something stupid or hateful, we have plenty of good people in this country who will either ignore them or shut them down with a solid counter-argument. But civil political discourse isn’t good enough for the Left anymore.
They want to make up for their lack of intellectual sophistication by intimidating people they disagree with. And after years of failing to accomplish this goals through name-calling and identity politics, they’re turning to violence. Of course, you can’t justify violence until you dehumanize the people you want to use violence against. This is why the Left uses identity politics to label their opponents as immoral people.
They label people who want our immigration laws enforced as “racists” or “xenophobes.” Dozens of Conservatives have been viciously attacked and had their careers and public reputations ruined simply for daring to talk about the differences between certain races or between the genders. This is ironic, considering how much the Left pretends to value diversity.
The Radical Left wants to set the new “moral” standards in America. But they also want to skip due-process and endorse groups like Antifa to punish people whom THEY consider to be immoral. Lately, their goal has been to label certain political ideas as hate speech, and to further define such hate speech, as a hate crime.
But here’s the actual definition of a hate crime…
“The precise definition of hate crime varies from state to state. Some states define a hate crime as any crime based on a belief regarding the victim’s race, religion, color, disability, sexual orientation, national origin, or ancestry. Some states exclude crimes based on a belief regarding the victim’s sexual orientation. Others limit their definition to certain crimes such as harassment, assault, and damage to property. In all states, the victim’s actual status is irrelevant. For example, if a victim is attacked by someone who believes that the victim is gay, the attack is a hate crime whether or not the victim is actually gay.” – Legal Dictionary Definition of Hate Crime
Notice it says “any crime.” Is speech a crime? No. If people want to believe in stupid ideas, and even march in the streets to defend them, let them. As long as we have civil discourse in this country, we can defeat bad ideas with rational arguments. And we already have laws to deal with people who try to replace civil discourse with violence. So what is the Left really afraid of?
They’re afraid their ideas won’t stand up against rational discourse. But since they typically think of themselves as intellectually superior to Conservatives, they rationalize this fear by labeling Conservatives as horrible people.
The truth is, there were only 400 White Supremacists in Charlottesville. Even if they’d become violent, what hope would they have against hundreds of millions of decent Americans? None. But if you believe CNN’s newest and most hateful narrative, you might think assume there’s more than 400 White Supremacists in this country…
#4: CNN Recently Dehumanized Nearly 60 Million Americas
About 59,535,522 people voted for Donald Trump in 2016. According to a CNN, all these voters are “White Supremacists by Default.” Here’s how CNN spun this sick narrative…
“It’s easy to focus on the angry white men in paramilitary gear who looked like they were mobilizing for a race war in the Virginia college town,” CNN reported. “But it’s the ordinary people — the voters who elected a reality TV star with a record of making racially insensitive comments, the people who move out of the neighborhood when people of color move in, the family members who ignore a relative’s anti-Semitism — who give these type of men room to operate.”
Okay, so far all we’ve heard is CNN’s usual, hysterical claims about Trump being a racist. But watch how they escalate this narrative using the opinions of Fordham University “professor” Mark Naison…
“We are a country with a few million passionate white supremacists — and tens of millions of white supremacists by default,”
That’s what Naison, a history professor and political activist, said to CNN. And again, here’s CNN paraphrasing him…
“That was the twisted formula that made the Holocaust and Rwanda possible and allowed Jim Crow segregation to survive: Nice people looked the other way while those with an appetite for violence did the dirty work,”
…and another quote…
“You have to have millions of people who are willing to be bystanders, who push aside evidence of racism, Islamophobia or sexism. You can’t have one without the other.”
…finally, CNN closed their remarks with this claim (hold your nose)…
“If you want to know why those white racists now feel so emboldened, it may help to look at all the ordinary people around you, your neighbors, your family members, your leaders. But first, start by looking at yourself.”
In my opinion, this twaddle ^ makes CNN America’s newest and loudest hate group. And if you follow their “violence against White Supremacists is justified,” rationale it’s easy to see just how dangerous this hateful narrative could become.
Clearly, CNN is out of control and needs to be called to account for this rhetoric before more people die in violent “Right vs Left” street riots. But that’s where things start to get messy with CNN…
#5: CNN Thinks They’re Above Criticism & Accountability
This, in my opinion, is the most disturbing thing about CNN. In spite of their irresponsible bias against Conservatives, their irrational bias against white voters, in spite of being repeatedly exposed for spreading false narratives, CNN seems to think they’re above ANY criticism from the public OR from President Trump.
Obama and Bill Clinton made their share of derogatory remarks against Fox News and against Conservatives like Rush Limbaugh.
Frankly, while I disagree with their substance, I thought some of Obama’s criticisms of Fox News were charming and funny. I also fully support his right to criticize the press.
That’s also why I believe CNN’s statements are NOT above criticism. I also don’t consider negative criticism against the press to be censorship. Yet, EVERY time President Trump attacks CNN for their irresponsible biases or dishonest “news” coverage, the bobble-heads at CNN fly into juvenile fits of “righteous” indignation.
In fact, CNN pulls this stunt when they come under ANY kind of criticism. Especially when it’s true. When James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas caught CNN program producers on hidden video, admitting to their organization’s agenda to put ratings above ethics, CNN accepted no responsibility. Instead, they responded with some vague statements about how they valued “diversity.” When they were further pressed on the scandal, and MORE videos came out, they became defensive and accused their critics of being “against the free press.”
This “anyone who criticizes us is either not credible, or against the first amendment,” attitude has become disturbing pattern with CNN. When President Trump of one of his spokespeople criticizes them for their bias or dishonesty, CNN anchors like Jake Tapper, Chris Cuomo, Don Lemon and others, barf out defensive claims about their critics being “un-American,” or “anti-free press,” or “anti-first amendment.”
How smug do you have to be to believe your first amendment rights forbid people from criticizing you? CNN claims their job is to “hold people in Washington Accountable.” Who’s holding CNN accountable? And why do they piss and moan about Donald Trump using Twitter to go over their heads and talk directly to the American people?
Is CNN entitled to an unchallenged monopoly of the political narrative in our country? In my opinion, NO ONE in the American press is above criticism. The fact that CNN thinks they are is deeply disturbing.
Especially with their history of irresponsible anti-Conservative bias, their bias against white Americans, their endorsement of domestic terrorist groups AND their gratuitous dehumanizing of nearly 60 million Americans as “White Supremacists by default.”
Maybe CNN should drop their smug pretense of objectivity and neutrality AND their attitude that the first amendment makes them exempt from criticism. Freedom of speech is NOT freedom from criticism. Unless CNN accepts this, they’ll only have themselves to blame when more and more Americans choose not to believe ANYTHING they reports as “news.”
That said, let’s finish up with President Trump’s original claim about organizations like CNN…
Is CNN Really the “Enemy of the American People?”
The Left has a nasty habit of labeling Trump and his supporters as “Nazis.” Apparently, they don’t know that Hitler’s 3rd Reich had the National Propaganda Media on THEIR side. On top of this, dictators will often jail or KILL their critics in order to silence them.
What does that say about CNN’s attempt to collude with the Democrats, the Rino Republicans and the Deep State to overthrow our elected President?
Maybe CNN should take their OWN advice and look in the mirror before they start hurling gratuitous accusations against half America’s voting populace. And, if they don’t like being called the “Enemy of the American People,” maybe should think twice before they turn 60 Million of us into their enemies.
