Just minutes after the identity of the suspect behind this week’s vicious and hateful attacks on our democracy was released, the mainstream media wasted no time in finding the true culprit behind the despicable acts: Conservatives, Republicans, and President Trump.
CNN’s John Avlon went so far as to blame the “suspicious package” sent to actor Robert De Niro on one particular Fox News host.
“We don’t know who it is. We don’t know the motive, but what’s fascinating is you see a direct pattern between the President’s attacks on Twitter and stage being echoed and amplified by Fox News and other folks who contribute,” said Avlon.
“Why Robert De Niro? Well, one of the things that I found was that on October 15, Sean Hannity was doing a whole segment blasting De Niro for things he said on the Alec Baldwin show of all things,” he added.
Avlon conveniently forgets to mention the disgusting and hateful rhetoric spewed by De Niro in recent months; screaming “F**K Trump” at the Tony Awards.
“I mean, he’s so blatantly stupid,” Mr. De Niro said. “He’s a punk, he’s a dog, he’s a pig, he’s a con, a bullsh**t artist, a mutt.”
The Destroy-Trump media has completely ignored the Left’s vile calls for violence since the President’s inauguration; from Madonna fantasizing about blowing up the White House to leading Democrats’ begging their supporters to “confront” Trump aides at “restaurants” and “gasoline stations.”
I will not stop pointing out the calls for violence against President Trump as I have from day one.
“I deplore all violence of any kind. Legitimate and fair criticism of media bias and merely calling-out CNN’s obvious political aenda as a network that spends virtually every hour of every day demonizing a President they clearly hate is not only warranted but a healthy exercise of freedom of speech.”
I have said over and over again that we must protect all Americans and every American President; including President Obama with whom I have deep and profound political differences.
What Fake News CNN and Avlon are engaging in a desperate attempt to exploit and politicize the actions of an unhinged lunatic and conflate it with the fair and warranted criticism CNN deserves.
When Steve Scalise was shot on a baseball field by a fierce supporter of Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, here’s what I said:
It would be wrong, illogical and unfair to blame Bernie for the actions of a sick and deranged supporter.
From the Kavanaugh hearings -where people like Senator Graham were spit on- and afterwards, we have been witnessing Mini Mobs confronting fellow citizens and having them chased out of restaurants… Pam Bondi, Sarah Sanders, Secretary Nielsen, Ted Cruz and his wife, Senator MCConnell and his wife.
Boulders have been thrown through the window of Rep. Kevin McCarthy. The GOP headquarters in NYC has been vandalized.
The silence from the media and Democratic Party is deafening. CNN flat-out refuses to condemn these mobs.
I have been saying for months that the violent rhetoric and calls for public confrontations from leading Democrats -including Eric Holder and Hillary Clinton- will lead to a devastating conclusion.
We take out our political differences at the ballot box in this country.
My heart goes out to those who have had to deal with these threats. I have been through more than I am willing to make public, including white powder mailed to me. I had an assistant scared to death for hours on end in isolation as a result of one incident. And I have had numerous other real threats in my career, myself and my family.
Lunatics have no political boundaries; The Unabomber, the shooter of Steve Scalise and others.
To suggest honest vigorous debate and criticism is the motivating force behind one fringe and violent individual is intellectually lazy and, frankly, a cheap attempt to capitalize off of a serious incident.
Saying ‘CNN is fake News’ or ‘CNN sucks’ is a far cry from advocating for violence.
I deplore all violence of any kind. Legitimate and fair criticism of media bias and merely calling-out CNN’s obvious political agenda as a network that spends virtually every hour of every day demonizing a President they clearly hate is not only warranted but a healthy exercise of freedom of speech.
HIT JOB? Liberals SLAM GOP's Use of Term ‘MOB’ to Describe Left-Wing Protests
Liberal activists, left-wing legislators, and the mainstream media lashed-out at conservatives and GOP pundits this week over their use of the term “mob” to describe the outrageous, often-violent protests staged by Democrats in the wake of Judge Kavanaugh’s confirmation process.
“Liberal protesters – egged on by Democratic politicians – are openly embracing a more confrontational and aggressive approach, banging on the doors of the Supreme Court, confronting lawmakers outside their offices and chasing GOP officials out of restaurants,” writes Fox News.
“The radical Democrats have turned into an angry mob,” said President Trump during a political rally this week.
“Women across the country came together around this nomination to say #MeToo, to stand up against sexual abusers and harassers,” Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., tweeted this week “And all Donald Trump, Mitch McConnell, and Republican leaders have to say to them is that they’re a mob. Disgraceful.”
Decide for yourself if the term applies; watch the shocking video above.
‘MOB’ MENTALITY: Top Dem Says ‘MOB’ Same Term Used by ‘Segregationists’ in 1960s
Democratic philanthropist, activist, and billionaire Tom Steyer weighed-in this week on President Trump’s use of the term “mob” to describe violent anti-GOP activists throughout the country; suggesting similar language was used by “segregationists” in the 1960s.
Steyer was speaking with MSNBC when he was asked to comment on Trump’s use of the term during a recent rally; saying “Listen, this is a line that people have been using to put down broad-based protests since the civil rights movement.”
“This ‘mob’ statement is something that segregationists used to justify strong police actions against completely legal nonviolent protests,” he added. “So I look at this as absolutely another Republican move to try to inflame people, to try to scare people about what is really going on.”
