Never one to be outdone with tasteless, inappropriate insults to conservatives, CNN actually accused “Right-wing” Americans — the network’s code word for conservatives, liberty lovers, Trump supporters, and constitutionalists — of being the real enemy.
“America’s 9/11 Amnesia,” the chyron below the host read — as though conservatives were responsible for killing thousands, destroying billions of dollars’ worth of real estate, and attacking the Pentagon.
“The striking similarities between the KKK and Islamist jihadis,” the host said.
The implications of the segment are clear: Let’s forget about Islamic terrorists who kill every single day of the year in some part of the world, and focus instead on … the KKK.
When was the last time the KKK killed anyone in America? Oh, that’s right. It was in the 1900s, when Democrats who founded the group after the Civil War were still lynching blacks because they didn’t like them. Because of their skin color. Because Democrats were — and remain — racists, haters, and intolerant bigots.
Want to see and hear proof? Listen to Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, and Rashida Tlaib for a half-hour. Talk about three Democrat lawmakers who hate America as founded, these three could just as easily be members of the Iranian parliament.
Another implication of the garbage CNN segment above was that “Right wingers” more often than anyone else are responsible for political violence in our country.
Sometimes “right-wing” Americans are responsible for violence. Sometimes.
Just not a majority of the time. No, that dubious honor goes to the Left-wing anarchy-loving idiots of Antifa and groups aligned with them. The proof is all over the place for anyone who cares to look for it. CNN knows that but chooses instead to create and report the false narrative that Antifa’s political opposites are more responsible for violence than they are. Reporting honestly and truthfully would mean the network couldn’t spread its anti-conservative, anti-President Trump hate. On the 9/11 anniversary. By calling more than half the country “terrorists.”
What’s going on at CNN is more than just an unhealthy disdain for a president and his supporters. What CNN is doing is ginning up hatred for its political opponents. Reports like this one are big dog whistles to the Left that it’s okay not only to hate people like Trump supporters but to incite others to act against them.
After all, if you’re fighting and even killing “terrorists,” how can that be wrong? (Related: HuffPo: Violence against Trump okay, violence against Clinton and Obama, not so much.)
The time has come for the government of the United States to take a look at what CNN is reporting and consider whether the network has a right to remain on the air. And we don’t need to hear cries of “First Amendment! First Amendment!”
The First Amendment does not condone the incitement of violence against persons.
When you’re providing aid and comfort to our enemies — in this case, Islamic extremists — your right to freedom of speech ends.
Just like you can’t yell “Fire!” in a crowded theater, slander or plagiarize someone, you can’t arbitrarily declare that half the country is an enemy of the other half.
That’s incitement. That’s sedition. That’s treasonous.
CNN has given up its right to exist. It’s not a news network, it’s become a propaganda outlet for those who mean us harm. CNN should be shut down, period.
