Michael Eric Dyson, liberal ‘View’ hosts say Trump’s mention of ‘Gone with the Wind’ was racially motivated

Liberal commentator Michael Eric Dyson attacked President Trump on Friday, arguing that he was racist for pushing for a return of “Gone with the Wind” and criticizing the movie “Parasite.” “The View” showed a clip of Trump arguing at a Colorado rally Thursday that “Parasite” shouldn’t have received an Academy Award. He also panned the choice of a South Korean film for best picture. “What the hell was that all about?” Trump asked. He added: “Can we get like ‘Gone with the Wind’ back, please?” “Yeah, let’s get ‘Birth of the Nation’ back because we don’t have enough of that kind of kowtowing and cooning,” Dyson said, referring to a movie that’s long considered to be racist. “The View” then muted the comments that followed and it’s unclear what exactly he said. Co-host Sunny Hostin took issue with Trump’s “Make America Great Again” slogan, arguing that Trump thought America was great in 1939 when “Gone with the Wind” was released. Dyson added that the movie was about “subordinating black people to white folk.” “Let’s bring back the Civil War, let’s bring back slavery,” said co-host Ana Navarro, speaking on how she believes Trump feels about the film. “Gone with the Wind” has come under fire for its depiction of slavery and African Americans. In 2017, a historic theater in Memphis, Tenn., which had shown “Gone With the Wind” screenings for decades, decided to remove the classic film from its schedule due to its racially “insensitive” content. At the time, Orpheum Theater President Batterson explained the decision by saying , “As an organization whose stated mission is to ‘entertain, educate and enlighten the communities it serves,’ the Orpheum cannot show a film that is insensitive to a large segment of its local population.” The wife of late “Gone With the Wind” actor Fred Crane was outraged over the theater’s decision to ban the film. “By making a statement, they are trying to make a problem,” Terry Lynne Crane told Fox News at the time. “They are inciting racial division and it’s only escalating.”

Exactly right, Ma’am.  This is just another pathetic, disingenuous attempt to label Trump a racist.  It’s the standard Democrat talking point that they push over and over.  Trump liked the movie ‘Gone with the Wind;’ a movie that won TEN academy awards and is considered one of the greatest classic movies of all time.  So what?  It’s a great movie!   That’s all Trump was saying when he disagreed with ‘Parasite’ winning an Oscar.  That’s all   But, because the setting of the movie was during the Civil War when yes, blacks were slaves in the DEMOCRAT south, these self-righteous, sanctimonious, liberal elitists jumped at the opportunity to call Trump a racist.  Then, to make matters worse, you have these brain surgeons on The View suggesting that Trump, in an election year no less, actually intended to make a racist comment.  In other words, he consciously tried to be offensive to a large voting segment in an election year.  Yeah, Michael and Sunny, that’s what he intended…morons.  This is self-serving, agenda driven nonsense gone crazy.  And this is why more and more people are turning away from these race hustlers on the left.

Opinion/Analysis: Fox News More than Triples CNN’s Collapsing Viewership

Even with the Democrat primary in high gear, the U.S.S. CNN’s ratings are still beyond pathetic. The far-left CNN, a hate network that spreads conspiracy theories and promotes violence against President Trump and his supporters, could not even average a million viewers during the same week New Hampshire came out to vote. Worse still, CNN’s chief nemesis, Fox News, annihilated the fake news network in the ratings by averaging more than three times — three times! — as many primetime viewers as CNNLOL. Here’s the primetime breakdown of average viewers during the week of February 10: Fox: 3.2 million MSNBC: 1.677 million CNNLOL: 969,000 As you can see, during the first presidential primary in four years (Iowa is a caucus), CNNLOL belly-flopped into ninth place, losing to HGTV, TLC, the History Channel, and only barely beating the Hallmark Channel. How is that even possible? Wait, it gets worse… Here’s the total day viewership average for that same week: Fox: 1.743 million MSNBC: 920,000 CNNLOL: 630,000 Seriously, how is it even possible for a cable channel that’s currently available in some 85 million homes to attract only 630,000 average viewers throughout the day — especially during the week of the New Hampshire primary? Here’s a better question… How is it possible that CNN chief Jeff Zucker, who has not only failed to dig CNN’s ratings out of the dirt, but who has forever destroyed the credibility of CNN as a respected brand, still has a job? Numbers this low do not just point to a failure to attract viewers, they point to a flat-out rejection of CNNLOL by the American people. CNN is a joke now, a national punch-line… Throughout the country, CNN is shorthand for “fake news.” This failure and the overwhelming dominance of Fox News has to be especially bitter for a network that has devoted countless programming hours and much of its public identity to attacking and destroying Fox News… CNNLOL is obsessed with Fox, is constantly smearing Fox as dishonest, hysterical, and even “dangerous.” But here’s Fox, not just kicking CNN’s pasty fatass, but rubbing CNN’s face in the dirt, kicking in CNN’s door, raiding CNN’s refrigerator, petting CNN’s dog, and seducing CNN’s older sister. Compared to this same week last year, Fox is up 27 percent in total primetime viewers and 18 percent in total day viewers. Compared to this same week last year, CNNLOL is down five percent in primetime viewers and nine percent in total day. The only good news for CNN is that it lost a lower percentage of viewers than MSNBC, which was down 14 percent in prime time and 15 percent in total day. Okay, but… MSNBC still nearly doubled CNNLOL in total primetime viewers. CNN lost viewers during the week of the New Hampshire primary. How glorious is that? CNN expends all this energy, money, time… CNN is constantly running at a thousand-miler-per-hour… and for what? No one’s listening. No one’s watching. No one cares. CNN has no impact on anything anymore. It’s just Hate Porn for a sad, smug, and increasingly small subculture of crybaby conspiracy theorists and bitter sore losers. You tired of winning yet? Yeah, me neither.

HAHAHA!!!  That was hilarious!!   Thanks to John Nolte for that cocky, yet spot-on analysis of CNN’s demise.  CNN threw all its eggs into one basket; attacking Trump, and his supporters.   That’s not journalism.  Its  agenda-driven advocacy.  CNN used to be a dry, boring news network…basically like CSPAN.  Now it has devolved into this extreme liberal hack network that competes with MSNBC for who can pander the most to the most extreme liberal fringes of the Democrat demographic.  Basically it’s just a competition between the two of how many times they can say that Trump sucks, is a racist, is xenophobic, hates immigrants, and on and on in a given day.  That is why more and more viewers of those two failing networks are getting fed up, and are turning to Fox News which at least has SOME semblance of balance, and multiple points of view are heard during their hard news segments; something that doesn’t exist at CNN or MSNBC.  For many folks, the whole Michael Avenatti fiasco was the last straw.

Chelsea Handler Humiliated for Falsely Suggesting Trump Only Exonerates White People

Comedian Chelsea Handler was hammered after she falsely suggested that President Donald Trump only exonerates or pardons white people. Handler got dragged on social media by commenters who pointed out that among the people President Trump chose this week for clemency are Angela Stanton-King, Tynice Nichole Hall, and Crystal Munoz — who are black and Native American. Two years ago, President Trump also granted clemency to Alice Johnson, who is black. President Trump enacted clemency actions on Tuesday for 11 individuals who served time for a range of crimes including drug-related offenses and white-collar fraud. Chelsea Handler, whose most recent Netflix project is a documentary about “white privilege,” appeared to attempted to paint President Trump as a racist by incorrectly implying in a tweet that he only exonerates white people. Angela Stanton-King, who served time for her role in a stolen vehicle ring, pointed out to Handler that she is black. Other Twitter commenters hammered Handler for her inaccurate comment, noting that President Trump’s clemency list was diverse in a way that reflects the racial make-up of the U.S. Of the 11 individuals who received a presidential pardon or commutation, at least three, or 27 percent, count as racial minorities. The racial minority population in the U.S. is estimated at around 23 percent, according to 2010 census figures. Since the passage of the First Step Act under President Trump, 96 percent of people who have been resentenced under the act’s retroactivity provision have been racial minorities, according to data provided by The Sentencing Project. Handler’s Netflix documentary on white privilege — Hello, Privilege. It’s Me, Chelsea — debuted last year to largely negative reviews, with critics saying it amounts to a “misguided reckoning” and noting that she is actively “exploiting her wokeness” and “profiting off a film about her white privilege.”

Chelsea is a nauseating, self-serving, self-righteous, extreme liberal elitist stricken with Trump Derangement Syndrome.  And, with Netflix’s assistance, she’s peddling the standard “Trump is a racist” talking point, regardless of facts to the contrary.  She’s out saying that Trump only pardons white people.  That is factually false.  But, the facts don’t matter to her, or her followers.

Behar: 2020 Dems Under Too Much Scrutiny — Republicans Are the ‘Most Racist’

Co-host Joy Behar defended 2020 Democratic hopeful Michael Bloomberg’s record on race relations over the objections of co-host Sunny Hostin on Friday’s broadcast of ABC’s “The View.” Behar said, “Here’s my point, the stop and frisk thing I think will be counteracted by some of the following. When he was mayor, not that—listen…I’m not shilling for Mayor Bloomberg yet, but I think there’s another side to the story.” Co-host Meghan McCain said, “You kind of are. You like him.” Behar said, “I like him, fine, I do. I like Biden too. I like all of them. I told you I’ll vote for any of them. I’ll vote for Peewee Herman, I told you. But let’s talk about this. He created an office to tackle poverty when he was mayor. He greatly expanded city contracts with businesses owned by minorities and women. He created the young men’s initiative to help black and Latino men stay on track for success, and he reduced incarceration by 40% and juvenile confinement by more than 60%. That is the balance to the stop and frisk that the black community is looking at. You know, as Sunny says every day, no one can win the primary without the black vote. Hostin said, “I think his record, though, Joy, is problematic. I really do. Not only does he have the stop and frisk issue, but he has also the redlining thing … he made it racial. He did.” Behar said, “Why are you so strict on Democrats and lenient on Republicans who have the most racist policies and the most racist track record? Why? Every single one who’s running probably has— this is a racist country, right? Hostin said, “Yeah.” Behar said, “Every single one of them has something in their background that doesn’t look good for race.

And THAT is what Joy Behar, and the rest of these liberal media tools, are falling back to; the race card.  For Dems, its the fallback position; playing the race card.  Joy is in hysterics.  Her pathological hatred (i.e. Trump Derangement Syndrome) for Trump is so intense, that even she admits she’d vote for the fictitious Peewee Herman character.  So, out comes the race card.  After all, Trump is the most racist president we’ve ever had, right?  America is starting to see through that unfounded Dem talking point…and that’s just one of the reasons Joy and her friends are in hysterics.

Ex-CNN darling Michael Avenatti convicted of trying to extort Nike

Brian Stelter and Joy Behar thought he could run for president in 2020. Now he’s going to jail. Former liberal media darling and frequent CNN guest Michael Avenatti won’t be offering anti-Trump talking points on cable news anytime soon after the disgraced lawyer on Friday was found guilty of trying to extort Nike. A New York jury found Avenatti, 48, guilty on three counts, including extortion, wire fraud and transmission of interstate communications with intent to extort. He faces up to 42 years in prison and did not testify in the case against him. Back in 2018, a Media Research Center study revealed that Avenatti, who represented a porn star in a lawsuit against President Trump, appeared on CNN a whopping 74 times over a 10-week period and the network’s in-house media critic famously declared the now-disgraced porn lawyer was a legitimate threat to challenge Trump in the 2020 presidential election. Stelter told Avenatti on air, “Looking ahead to 2020, one of the reasons why I’m taking you seriously as a [2020 presidential] contender is because of your presence on cable news.” At the height of Avenatti’s fame, he spent his rare time away from CNN’s greenroom partying with the network’s anchors while regularly appearing on late-night shows, MSNBC and “The View.” Juanita Scarlett, a former aide to Andrew Cuomo, the Democratic governor of New York and brother of CNN host Chris Cuomo, once tweeted — and then deleted – a photo of herself with Avenatti and another CNN host, Don Lemon, who apparently hosted a bash at his posh Hamptons home. It’s unclear how many other CNN personalities were at Lemon’s “Sag Harbor soiree,” but it was clear Avenatti had a cozy relationship with the liberal network prior to his drastic fall from grace. CNN was even accused of downplaying Avenatti’s Nov. 2018 arrest and Stelter once admitted critics “have a legit reason to dunk on me” when he chalked up omitting a negative story about Avenatti from his newsletter to a mix up. “After being called everything from a political and legal expert to the ‘man who could take down Trump’ and given hundreds of segments and hours of television time from both CNN and MSNBC, Michael Avenatti is headed to jail,”author and political satirist Tim Young told Fox News. “Not only has he proven himself to be a fraud, but he’s exposed the fact that these networks are willing to book literally anyone who confirms their Trump Derangement Syndrome.” Young said Stelter’s theory that Avenatti was a legitimate contender for president shows the CNN pundit has a “complete lack of understanding of the media and political sphere” for valuing a now-convicted felon over most politicians in America. “It’s an important reminder that people aren’t smarter than you or better judges of character just because they have a major media platform,” Young added. CNN did not immediately respond to a request for comment. MRC analysts Bill D’Agostino and Rich Noyes wrote in 2018 that there “no guest in CNN’s recent history who has been given as much free media exposure by the network as Avenatti” received. But CNN wasn’t the only liberal network to parade Avenatti in front of the camera. Over the same 10-week period, Avenatti appeared on MSNBC 57 times, according to the study. “On a single day [May 3 2018], MSNBC featured Avenatti a stunning seven times,” D’Agostino and Noyes wrote. “While CNN has been the friendliest network… MSNBC has been close behind.” He was also asked about a potential run at the White House on ABC News’ “The View” in August 2018. The disgraced lawyer was accused of trying to extort up to $25 million from Nike by threatening to go public with evidence that the company had paid off the families of young NBA-bound athletes. For about two weeks, prosecutors called several witnesses, including lawyers and Nike employees, and played recordings of Avenatti at his meeting with Nike attorneys. The defense’s case consisted of documents and stipulations insisting that Avenatti was only being an aggressive attorney and was working on behalf of his client. However, the client, Gary Franklin, the founder and coach of youth basketball team California Supreme, testified in court that Avenatti didn’t keep him in the loop of the negotiations with the athletic giant. Avenatti hasn’t been able to appear on CNN, or anywhere else, as he was in custody after violating bail conditions in a federal case against him in California and was housed at Manhattan’s Metropolitan Correctional Center during the trial. The once famed lawyer for adult-film star Stormy Daniels faces two other trials. In a second trial in Manhattan, he faces charges that he cheated Daniels out of the proceeds of a book deal. The most serious charges are in a federal case in Los Angeles, where he is accused of defrauding clients and others. Avenatti has denied all charges and insisted that they were part of an ongoing vendetta by the Trump administration after he represented Daniels in her litigation against the president. Donald Trump Jr. reacted to Avenatti’s conviction by sharing a Free Beacon montage of his frequent media appearances.

One word…karma.   The “creepy porn lawyer,” as Tucker Carlson referred to Michael Avenatti, is who he is.  Most of America could see right through him.  But, the dominantly liberal mainstream media, especially CNN and MSNBC (and The View) were so consumed with their extreme liberal bias and their pathological Trump Derangement Syndrome, that they latched onto him almost as a savior of sorts; someone who could take down Trump.  As such, Brian Stelter and Don Lemon over at CNN, and people like Chris Matthews and Rachel Maddow over at MSNBC have been exposed for who and what they are.  They’re not just extremely liberal, agenda-driven, elitist tools who are consumed with Trump Derangement Syndrome.  We already knew that.  What America now knows, is that they’re complete idiots.  And, those who watch or listen to them, have been following total buffoons.  These liberal elitist media figures talk down to us normal folk.  They really think they’re smarter than the rest of us.  But, THEY are the ones who got conned by the “creepy porn lawyer,” and the rest of America wasn’t.  Gotta love this.

Gutfeld rips media after Avenatti verdict: Their ‘deranged filter’ depicted ‘bald bozo’ as anti-Trump savior

The mainstream media failed to see convicted attorney Michael Avenatti for who he really was, but latched onto him because he seemed able to damage President Trump, Greg Gutfeld said on “The Five” Friday. Earlier Friday, a federal jury in Manhattan convicted Avenatti of trying to extort athleticwear giant Nike, but not before he made hundreds of appearances on the likes of CNN and MSNBC, Gutfeld said after playing a montage of TV hosts praising the onetime attorney for adult film star Stormy Daniels. “‘The Five’ saw him for what he was, but the clowns from the [media] … they couldn’t because they have a deranged filter,” Gutfeld said. “All they saw when they looked at this clown was somebody that could hurt Trump, so they all lined up to kiss the bald bozo’s ring,” The montage featured CNN anchors Christopher Cuomo and Don Lemon, MSNBC hosts Chris Matthews and Lawrence O’Donnell, and CBS “Late Show” host Stephen Colbert. “This is a piece of evidence that shows you the corporate media cannot be trusted,” Gutfeld continued, adding that those same media figures portray themselves as more knowledgeable and sophisticated than the American people. “But they are credulous. They’ll take in anybody. They are a tribe looking for a savior and that’s what they saw in this guy.” At the height of Avenatti’s fame, images circulated on social media that showed him partying with CNN anchors. Juanita Scarlett, a former aide to New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (brother of Chris Cuomo) once tweeted — and then deleted – a photo of herself with Avenatti and another CNN anchor, Don Lemon, who apparently hosted a bash at his posh Hamptons home. Avenatti, 48, was convicted of extortion, wire fraud and transmission of interstate communications with intent to extort. He faces up to 42 years in prison.

Greg is exactly right.  These morons at CNN and MSNBC, and other liberal media types like Joy Behar over at The View saw in Avenatti someone that could bring down Trump..

Being Fired by Trump Does Not Make You a Holocaust Victim

Lawfare’s Benjamin Wittes, one of the media’s favorite Donald Trump antagonists, took to Twitter this weekend to pen a transcendently nonsensical thread comparing the firing of a handful of bureaucrats to the rounding up of political undesirables in the lead-up to the Holocaust. It’s wouldn’t be a huge deal, except that this kind of hysterical reaction has now been normalized in American discourse, illustrating that once-rational people have either lost all sense of history or are willing to belittle the past for short-term political gain. My bet is on the latter. Here’s how Wittes begins his updated version of Martin Niemöller’s famous poem: When fellow Hungarians came for my grandfather — he was one of the first to be deported from the country — they sent him to sweep mines on the Eastern Front before handing him over to the Germans at Mauthausen and then Gunskirchen. At some point he perished, no doubt, in a vile and undignified manner, perhaps succumbing to starvation or typhoid or dysentery, or maybe he was shot in the head and left in a shallow unmarked grave. We don’t know. His wife and son, the latter of whom he would never meet, would never find out how he died, despite decades of trying. His loss, like the deaths of millions of other powerless and now anonymous victims of that age, would have repercussions that reverberate today. When “they” came for James Comey, on the other hand, he landed a massive book deal, made millions on the speaking circuit, wagged his finger at his former boss through social media to his million followers, and spent some quality time with family. He never once had to worry about state-sanctioned violence. Comey, a man powerful enough to oversee a cooked-up investigation into a presidential candidate, merely lost a job. Like Comey, all the alleged victims on Wittes’s ludicrous list served at the pleasure of the president and could be fired by Donald Trump for almost any reason he desired, just as they could have been fired by Barack Obama or Jimmy Carter or FDR. Many of the people on the list, in fact, have been investigated by the inspector general, who found that they acted either incompetently or potentially illegally. Government bureaucrats aren’t endowed with a God-given right to work in the executive branch of the United States government. Most of these “victims” will find lucrative work elsewhere. None, I confidently say, are going to be thrown into camps. If you don’t like who Trump fires, or how he fires them, you can always vote for another candidate. It might come as a surprise to those who, through hyperbole, demean the real victims of history, but Nazi Germany didn’t hold impeachment hearings for their leaders in 1938, there was no institutional anti-Hitler media in 1939, and most people in 1940 did not publicly accuse Hitler of being a seditious criminal and madman. Those who did, such as Martin Niemöller, ended up in Sachsenhausen and Dachau, not the green room at CNN.

No kidding!  More fake news from the dominantly liberal mainstream media, and those afflicted with Trump Derangement Syndrome.  For more, click on the text above.
