UPDATE: CNN Host Regrets Trump, Nazi Comparison; Says ‘Should Not Have’ Compared ‘Two Thoughts’

posted by Hannity Staff - 13 seconds ago

CNN’s Christiane Amanpour backed-away from her incendiary comments last week that directly compared the Trump administration to Nazi atrocities; saying she should not have “juxtaposed” the two thoughts.

“I observed the 82nd anniversary of Kristallnacht, as I often do — it is the event that began the horrors of the Holocaust. I also noted President Trump’s attacks on history, facts, knowledge, and truth. I should not have juxtaposed the two thoughts,” Amanpour said at the end of her program on Monday.

 

“Hitler and his evils stand alone, of course, in history. I regret any pain my statement may have caused,” Amanpour continued. “My point was to say how democracy can potentially slip away, and how we must always zealously guard our democratic values.”

REPORT: Israel Demands CNN Issue Apology After Anchor Compared Trump Admin to ‘Nazi Kristallnacht’

posted by Hannity Staff - 20 hours ago

From Fox News:

Israel has demanded that CNN International anchor Christiane Amanpour apologize after comparing a deadly night at the start of the Holocaust to President Trump’s four years in the White House.

Amanpour said during a segment commemorating 82 years after Kristallnacht that the event “was the Nazis’ warning shot across the bow of our human civilization that led to genocide against a whole identity and, in that tower of burning books, it led to an attack on fact, knowledge, history, and proof.”

She continued, “After four years of a modern-day assault on those same values by Donald Trump, the Biden-Harris team pledges a return to normal.”

Israeli Minister of Diaspora Affairs Omer Yankelevich said Sunday that CNN “should be a partner in the global effort to fight anti-Semitism and not fuel the fire,” The Jerusalem Post reported.

“Using the memory of the Holocaust for cheap headlines or a political agenda is concerning and distorts the historical and moral truth,” Yankelevich added.

A NEW LOW: Dem. Rep. Directly Compares US Border Agents with NAZI Collaborators During WWII

posted by Hannity Staff - 2.27.19

Democratic Rep. Mary Gay Scanlon stunned reporters and audience members this week when she directly compared US Border Patrol Agents with those who simply “followed orders” from the Nazi regime during World War II.

Scanlon was speaking at a House Judiciary Committee hearing when she launched into her bizarre rant; saying “Just following orders is no more an excuse today than it was back in Germany.”

“When you say that the cause of migration is legal loopholes or bad judicial decisions, rather than the dire conditions of violence and poverty in these people’s home countries that’s literally driving them from home, I think it’s easier to slam the door against these kids and these families,” she said. “This hearing is a recognition and an insistence that on that humanity … a recognition that just following orders is no more an excuse today than it was back in Germany.”
