When a wolf pack sends out one of its members to kill, is it really a "lone-wolf" attack? Hardly. But that's the mythology to which Sudip Kar-Gupta at Reuters was clinging on Thursday in covering the view of the attacks from France.
War on Terrorism
Put this one in the loony lefty bin. Hollywood actress Patricia Arquette, known for winning the best supporting actress Oscar two years ago, revealed she’s a conspiracy theorist last night on Twitter. After an Islamic terrorist killed 4 people and wounded at least 40 others in London Wednesday, the actress claimed it was all a ruse by President Trump to distract us from the FBI investigation into his ties with Russia:
ABC’s terror-themed drama Quantico is back again for its second season and ready to make conservatives and Donald Trump the enemy, instead of actual terrorists, according to a new report in the Hollywood Reporter. After a few attacks on Republicans, Tea Partiers and Trump fans in the first season, show frontrunner Joshua Safran said in an interview published Wednesday that he had plans for more overtly anti-Trump episodes in the works for season two.
During MSNBC’s live breaking news coverage of the suspected terrorist attacks in London on Wednesday, NBC News reporter Matt Bradley reported via phone from the British capital and was more worried about the violence helping conservative politicians than he was about the victims: “We've seen this rise of a kind of a right-wing movement here and throughout Europe. And this is only going to put wind in the sails of those who would say that this is an issue that needs to be looked at, that needs to be examined in terms of refugees.”
Late Wednesday evening, news broke that another liberal judge had put a temporary hold on the implementation of President Donald Trump’s travel ban. And during CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360, commentator Van Jones voiced his approval. “An action can be ruled unconstitutional if it's on the face of it, it looks like it's a good thing but there's an intent that's unconstitutional,” he argued, “There's a discriminatory intent here. And the discriminatory intent of the Trump administration is clear.”
As the Hollywood Left is wont to do, Tuesday night’s episode of NBC's Taken was filled with lessons on judgment and prejudice from a liberal point of view. In an effort to impart the lesson that not all Muslims are terrorists, Taken takes an extreme left turn that defies all logic and reason by shifting the blame for terrorism onto white, male, government officials.
Before Hardball host Chris Matthews and his panel predicted on Thursday President Trump Trump will be blamed for terror attacks if he cuts government spending, Matthews turned into a conspiracy theorist, inferring that Trump’s smile while declining to answer questions about a new WikiLeaks document dump was reason to question his “patriotic instincts.” The topic of Trump’s smirk came up at least five times in the hour-long show with the first instance popping up less than a minute in.
CBS demonstrated its list of priorities during Thursday’s CBS Evening News when the network completely ignored a violent and bloody ax attack in one of Germany’s largest train stations. Instead of reporting on the attack in Dusseldorf, “where five people were wounded [and] one seriously,” anchor Scott Pelley wasted roughly 18 seconds reporting on “a rising tide of popularity has made water the bestselling drink in America.”
In a display of irresponsibility on Thursday night, MSNBC’s Hardball panel predicted with hints of approval that “Leninist” President Trump will be to blame if disease outbreaks or terror attacks occur on U.S. soil during his presidency should he shrink the size of government spending and federal bureaucracy.
Lynne Stewart, whose long legal and illegal career included representing domestic terrorists in the 1980s and relaying a convicted Islamic terrorist's commands to his underlings last decade, died on Tuesday. The Associated Press's Larry Neumeister went out of his way to conceal and sanitize important aspects of Stewart's life and beliefs in his Wednesday afternoon obituary.
On Sunday's AM Joy on MSNBC, it was the place for conspiracy theories. Appearing as a guest to discuss President Donald Trump, far-left film director Rob Reiner fretted that Trump has "already invaded our country" because of hacking from Russia, and ended up seeming to seriously suggest that the President might either fake or stage a bombing of the U.S.S. Cole to justify a war with Iran.
It's becoming quite obvious that the Associated Press, which has tilted ever more to the left for several decades, has been on the verge of going completely off the rails since their coordinated plan to elect Hillary Clinton failed in November. Naturally, the AP has directed its ever-increasing hostility at Donald Trump and his administration since that fateful day — seldom more obviously than in Tammy Webber's treatment of Trump's tribute to Ryan and Carryn Owens in his Tuesday speech to a joint session of Congress.
