Analysis: For CNN, anyone on the left is ‘anti-hate’ — even violent masked mayhem-driving thugs

Apparently CNN thinks violent leftists can’t be “hate groups.” How else to explain the network downplaying the violent actions of Antifa, a group the Obama administration determined were perpetrators of “domestic terrorist violence?” That’s exactly what we saw with CNN’s coverage of the “Unite the Right” rally in Washington, D.C., this Sunday. About 40 white nationalists left their parents’ basements to gather in the nation’s capital on the anniversary of the deadly Charlottesville riot. This time, the racists were dramatically outnumbered by 200 violent and masked Antifa anarchists. Antifa behaved as they always have—violently. Fox News reported, “Members of Antifa were seen launching eggs, fireworks and water bottles at police officers and the Secret Service, beating people in the street and threatening members of the media…” Media covered the violence in real time on social media. There is film of the violence. Peaceful demonstrators captured the violence on cell phone video and posted attacks on the police and media for the world to see. Americans have watched for years now as Antifa has attacked members of the media, police and even innocent bystanders. The increase of violence so alarmed the Obama administration that “’Federal authorities have been warning state and local officials since early 2016 that leftist extremists known as ‘antifa’ had become increasingly confrontational and dangerous, so much so that the Department of Homeland Security formally classified their activities as “domestic terrorist violence,’ according to interviews and confidential law enforcement documents,” as Politico reported in September 2016. Yet this weekend, the mask-wearing thugs – their violence well-documented for everyone to see – were actually described by CNN as an “anti-hate” group. That’s right. A CNN screen banner during coverage of the violence announced, “Anti-hate groups dramatically outnumber white supremacists in DC.” Apparently, for CNN, you can throw things at cops and attack journalists but as long as you’re on the left-wing hate-Trump end of the political spectrum that’s some A-OK anti-hate expression going on out there. This is one of the reasons Americans have lost trust in mainstream media. They aren’t asking for news with which they agree all the time, they simply want the actual news. Gallup reported in 2016 “Americans’ trust and confidence in the mass media ‘to report the news fully, accurately and fairly’ has dropped to its lowest level in Gallup polling history.” In CNN’s case, the American public see a previously respected news organization abandon its duty to report the news in order to promote the fiction that Americans are divided and President Trump is at fault. That’s the bottom line here—there is such an investment by legacy media to cast the president as a racist, and dividing the American people as a result, that even an event as clear as this had to be manipulated to fit that narrative. The actual news is this: the average American could get more people at a backyard barbeque or poker game than the racists managed to organize this weekend, even with nonstop national news coverage. And 200 violent anarchists used it as yet another opportunity to put on masks, riot, and chant slogans about evil America and capitalism. A divided America this does not make, however the media chooses to cover it. It was a pathetic gathering of irrelevant malcontents spewing hateful messages that Americans reject en masse, but desperate for the attention they knew the mainstream media would give them. For CNN, it also showed their desperation to mold it into their latest Trump-hating narrative about an America they imagine and loathe. The good news is, Americans no longer allow other people to feed them a false reality. We’re told the nation is divided by race. Yet, African-American support for the president has doubled in the last year, from 15 percent in 2017 to 29 percent now, according to Rasmussen. In a recent Harvard Harris poll, Hispanic support for the president increased 10 points. This is happening because in real life everyone’s lives are improving due to the president’s policies. But CNN needed to frame a clearly hate-filled event in a way that confirmed their fiction of racism stoked by President Trump. Here is the irony: CNN cast as “anti-hate” a group designated by the Obama administration as dangerous and violent – and they did it because they can’t see past their own hatred of Trump and anyone who voted for him.

Exactly!!  And well said, Tammy.  NY Times best-selling author, and radio talk-show host Tammy Bruce was the author of that spot-on analysis.  Excellent!!   🙂

Analysis: Anti-Trump media manages to spin electoral victories into defeats

Candidates supported by President Trump did well in a special congressional election in Ohio and in primaries Tuesday, although some races remained too close to call. But the anti-Trump media did their best to paint the outcome of the voting as bad news for the president. Journalists worked hard to spin a pro-Democratic narrative before the voting. For example, CNN anchor Don Lemon said Republicans are “people who will lie, steal, and cheat, lie to their mother, lie to themselves about what’s right of this country, about truth and facts.” Neutral objective journalism, right? Journalists also talked a lot about a “blue wave” and “a major sign of trouble for Republicans” before the votes were counted. Politico wrote of “Democrats surging.” Sort of like what they predicted back in 2016 when they said President Hillary Clinton would be occupying the Oval Office in January 2017. They were wrong this time, too. That didn’t stop the typical spin. CNBC’s John Harwood used Twitter to say winning was a sign the GOP was going to lose in November. He retweeted a comment saying, “it’s hard to remember when so many victories were such a bad omen going into November.” Harwood even claimed the “GOP has a corruption problem in mid-term elections.” Election season makes people say stupid things. That’s why Democratic socialist media darling Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez compared a request that she debate to “catcalling.” The Daily Wire’s Ben Shapiro made the invitation and even offered to pay $10,000 to her campaign or a charity of her choosing. The result was just the latest public relations disaster for the lefty candidate. (You know it’s a bad move when even The New York Times makes you look bad for your comment.) Incredibly, Washington Post media columnist Margaret Sullivan gave a one word support of Ocasio-Cortez, writing simply: “Preach.” Apparently, even asking a liberal millennial woman to debate is now a #MeToo moment. One final point about the media’s post-election distortions. It’s widely known and little reported (now) that midterms are typically bad for the party in power. Here’s NPR back in 2014 explaining: “History tells us that midterm elections are bad – sometimes very bad – for the party that controls the White House.” So, yes, the rules say the GOP is supposed to lose seats in Congress in November. But journalists want to treat the voting as a referendum on President Trump and not politics as usual. It’s almost like they’re whistling past the graveyard of their predictions. Maybe that’s why Don Lemon is now thanking politicians who even watch CNN.

Limbaugh: Jim Acosta’s peers upset that voters can finally stand up to ‘garbage people’ insults

Rush Limbaugh says journalists who chastise the behavior of President Trump’s supporters at rallies are really upset that Americans can respond to “garbage human” insults in 2018. The man behind the “golden EIB” microphone celebrated 30 years on air by telling listeners how much has changed over the decades. Mr. Trump’s Tuesday rally in Tampa, Florida, along with anger over the heckling of CNN’s Jim Acosta, prompted a monologue on media bias. “Let me just share with you a report here from somebody at Politico,” the conservative said. “‘Politico reporter Marc Caputo mocked attendees of President Donald Trump’s Tampa rally Tuesday night, referring to them as toothless ‘garbage people.’ After nearly 11 hours, Caputo posts an apology. ‘I need to apologize for tweeting caustic remarks after seeing a reporter berated & abused. Hate begets hate. My comments referred ONLY to those jeering and swearing at the man, not a broad swath of people. But the fault is mine for causing confusion and feeding anger.’” At issue were rally attendees who shouted “CNN sucks” while the network’s chief White House correspondent spoke with colleague Wolf Blitzer. Mr. Limbaugh essentially said that modern technology and various social media platforms allow viewers to regularly see that they are viewed with contempt by journalists. “[Trump voters are] basically a bunch of disjointed, angry people who cannot adapt to the transforming of American culture and society [to reporters],” Mr. Limbaugh said. “They are a bunch of toothless, brain-dead people sitting on the deck out in front of the shack playing the banjo as Burt Reynolds and the boys go rafting by. That’s what [reporters] think of your average Trump voter, and this guy just happened to let it out.” The radio host also asserted that Mr. Acosta “secretly and privately loves” the attention he’s getting because he goes out of his way to be adversarial with the president. “Outside of this, he’s a typical CNN no-name,” Mr. Limbaugh said. “But Trump and his administration have singled him out because Acosta decides to play rude, decides to be a provocateur. He knows Trump is gonna hit back, and I’ve maintained that Acosta loves it secretly every time it happens.” “Acosta gets to go out and play like he’s actually at war and that there are real bullets being fired and he’s risking his life to go to a Trump rally and report what’s going on there,” he continued. “What they really can’t stand is that Trump still sells out and the people there are still madly in love with and totally supportive of Trump.”

Exactly!!  And well said, Rush!  As usual, “El Rushbo” nails it with an insight that nobody else talks about.  Jim probably DOES relish the spotlight…and yet he’s such a brazen disingenuous, liberal hypocrite.  Anyway..  Congrats to Rush on his 30 year anniversary behind the “golden EIB microphone!”  We hope you’re around another 30!  “Dittos!!”   🙂

Terror Expert Compares Reaction to Trump’s Russia Efforts to Obama’s: ‘It’s Glaring Hypocrisy’

Former U.S. Army Special Forces member Jim Hanson said that the criticism President Trump is facing for meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin is hypocritical to what the Obama administration faced in 2012. Hanson, during an appearance on “Fox & Friends,” specifically called out former President Barack Obama’s hot mic incident with then-Russian President Dmitry Medvedev and the lax media reaction to it. Obama told Medvedev that after the 2012 election, he’d “have more flexibility.” The former U.S. president and Medvedev were talking about missile defense, Hanson added, saying that the world’s security was actually being put at risk. “The media at that point in time had nothing to say,” he said. “Now, President Trump wants to make a less-antagonistic relationship with the Russians … and all of a sudden it’s the worst thing that ever happened. It’s glaring hypocrisy.” Trump is set to meet with Putin on Monday in Helsinki, Finland. Hanson said that the entire stature of Obama’s foreign policy was “cringing capitulation.” “It was ‘America last,’” he said. “It ended up making the world a much more dangerous place.” Hanson also recalled the 2009 meeting between then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, during which Clinton presented Lavrov with a physical “reset” button to signify resetting relations with Russia. “Hillary walks into that meeting asking for nothing … she’s telling them ‘OK, you can have whatever you want from us,’” Hanson said.

The hypocrisy is indeed, breathtaking.  Thanks to former U.S. Army Special Forces member Jim Hanson for calling out the dominantly liberal mainstream media, and Democrat politicians, who are using today’s summit between President Trump and President Putin as an excuse to have another beat-up Trump session.  The rhetoric has been SO over the top, that it isn’t worth even paying attention to.

CNN’s Mudd: Trump Is a White, Rich Guy Saying ‘I Don’t Like People Coming In Who Don’t Look Like Us’

Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” network counterterrorism analyst Philip Mudd reacted to President Donald Trump criticizing Europe’s immigration policies. During an interview with British tabloid The Sun, Trump said, “I think what’s happened to Europe is a shame. I think the immigration allowing the immigration to take place in Europe is a shame. I think it changed the fabric of Europe. And unless you act very quickly, it’s never going to be what it was, and I don’t mean that in a positive way. I think you’re losing your culture.” Mudd answered, “This is not about culture. This is about race. I guess if we don’t want immigration in the united states we get rid of little Italy and Irish out of Boston, Mexicans out of the Southwest and rid of Asian americans out of the west coast and my hometown which was revitalized by Cubans, they’ve got to go home too.” He continued, “The difference he’s talking about, and I see this as a white guy, it’s brown people and black people going into Europe, people from embattled states in Africa and people form the Syria conflict. If we want to talk about this straight, we shouldn’t talk about culture. We ought to talk about race. It’s a white guy who is a rich guy from Manhattan saying I don’t like people coming in who don’t look like us.”

No, you stupid tool..  That’s NOT what he said at all, you race-baiting, agenda-driven, liberal hypocrite!  He said Europe has a certain culture.  That’s true!  And, when you import in vast numbers people from other cultures, it changes that culture.  That’s simply a FACT.  Ask the poor women and young girls who were preyed upon, and raped, on New Year’s eve in Germany (Berlin, Munich, etc) by Muslim males who came from Syria and elsewhere.  Germany is the poster child of what has happened to Europe when Muslims from northern Africa and the Middle East (who aren’t even vetted) suddenly show up in large numbers.  Look at the 44% rise in homicides in London in 2017 thanks, in large part, to the same.  Trump is 100% correct in saying that mass immigration to Europe from these predominantly Muslim nations is changing the culture of Europe.  He just doesn’t give a damn about political correctness, and is the only one honest to just say it…probably knowing that self-righteous, tools like Philip will use the opportunity to play the race card.  Nice try.  Your name is Mudd.  How appropriate..  And people still wonder why Trump calls CNN, MSNBC, NBC, and others “fake news.”..

Trump supporters turn out in London a day after protests

Thousands of Trump supporters and right-wing activists took to the nation’s capital on Saturday — a day after anti-Trump protesters had dominated the city. While the displays of right-wing support were nowhere near as large as the enormous anti-Trump march that demanded the international media’s attention the day before, it was still a significant show of support for Trump from those eager to counter the claim that Trump had been unanimously rejected by Britons. The day started with a small pro-Trump rally outside the U.S. Embassy, featuring numerous red “MAGA” hats and U.S. and U.K. flags — as well as a few anti-Hillary Clinton shirts. Later, approximately 3,000 people turned out near Trafalgar Square to show their backing of Trump as well as jailed right-wing and anti-Islam activist Tommy Robinson. “Oh Tommy Tommy, Tommy Tommy Tommy Tommy Robinson,” the football chant for the activist thundered throughout the event. Robinson, the ex-leader of the English Defense League, was jailed for 13 months beginning earlier in May for contempt of court after being arrested filming outside a court in Leeds. His supporters have claimed that the law was applied unevenly and have expressed concern for his safety in prison, considering his history of criticizing Islam. A number of right-wing groups were present at the march, including Generation Identity — which calls itself a “European patriotic youth movement” — as well as a number of right-wing Western politicians. Controversial Dutch MP Geert Wilders made an address by video, while Rep. Paul Gosar, R-Ariz., spoke about the importance of free speech. The speeches were a blend of support for Trump, Robinson and also concerns about the danger of mass migration and the importance of national sovereignty. U.S. flags were again in abundance, as well as pro-Trump banners and placards reading “Britain Loves Trump.” “The rubbish that was spouted about Trump yesterday, it’s complete unjustified vitriol against him,” Robert Stevens, wearing a Trump T-shirt, said…

Didn’t hear about this yesterday, did ya?  It was not reported on MSNBC, CNN, ABC, CNBS, or NBC.  And, it was very briefly glossed over on Fox News.  For more, and to see a few pics of this pro-Trump rally in London yesterday, click on the text above.     🙂

MSNBC’s Chris Matthews Mocks Deplorables: Trump ‘Dog-Training These People’

MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews lambasted President Donald Trump on Tuesday for his criticism of NATO defense spending — and casually dropped the charge that Trump’s rallies are “dog training” for his heartland voters. Matthews accused Trump of being more critical of NATO’s defense spending budget than Russian aggression towards Europe before insulting attendees of his recent rally in Great Falls, Montana. “He is taking a Republican Party, a grassroots party that’s spent 60, 70 years leading the war in the Cold War, hating the Russians for all their aggressiveness in the world and taking over the countries on the border and being tyrannical the way they are now and he has those people cheering against Western Europe,” he said. “He’s dog-training these people.” Sahil Kapur, a national political reporter for Bloomberg, told Matthews that President Trump’s statements would have been met with scorn from conservatives if former President Barack Obama had uttered them. “I think President Trump is doing this on a level that would make a lot of Republicans nervous,” he speculated. Turning his attention to President Trump’s supporters, Matthews criticized rally attendees for cheering proposals aimed at giving NATO allies more responsibility of their own security concerns. “They’re not getting paid. They’re not running for anything. Those regular people that show up for a Trump rally are cheering the attacks on our European allies and cheering ‘give a chance to little Putin,’” he complained. Over breakfast in Brussels with NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg on Wednesday, President Trump lamented how the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline may leave Germany and other European countries perilously dependent on Russia for its energy needs. “It is very sad when Germany makes a massive oil and gas deal with Russia, where we’re supposed to be guarding against Russia, and Germany goes and pays out billions and billions of dollars a year to Russia,” the President said. “We’re protecting Germany, we’re protecting France, we’re protecting all of these countries.” “We’re paying a lot of money to protect, this has been going on for decades… it’s very unfair to our country, it’s very unfair to our taxpayers… these countries need to step it up, not over a ten year period, but immediately,” he added. President Trump told NATO allies on Wednesday they should commit to increasing military spending from 2 percent to 4 percent of their GDP by 2024.

Chris Matthews, who suffers from “Trump Derangement Syndrome,” is a nauseating, extreme liberal, sanctimonious, hate-filled, piece of garbage.  He is the old-guard poster child of the meltdown that is happening at MSNBC, and the rest of the dominantly liberal mainstream media.  All he does is make ad hominem attacks on anyone who is a true conservative, Republican, or Trump supporter…and, of course, his pathological fixation on President Trump is beyond silly.  Trump was 100% right to demand that the other NATO member countries pay the 2% of their (infinitely smaller) GDP which they have agreed to contractually for decades.  And, President Trump is not the only President to demand that.  Reagan, Clinton, W, and even Obama demanded the same thing!!  It’s just that Chris doesn’t like Trump.  So, he is attacking him because..well…he’s Trump.  The hypocrisy is breathtaking.  But, Chris the blowhard is not interested in facts; only bloviating.  Tool..
