On Tuesday morning, NPR’s Morning Edition skipped over an inconvenient part of a leftist chant as they ripped down a statue honoring the Conferate soldier in Durham, North Carolina. Jeff Tiberii of NPR affiliate WUNC-FM began by reporting the protesters chanted "No KKK, No Fascist USA" bounced off the old county courthouse in Durham, leaving out the phrase "No Cops." Or the phrase "No Trump."
Remember all the recent caterwauling about President Donald Trump's policy towards North Korea in the mainstream media in general and at CNN in particular? Folks like the reliably ridiculous Chris Cillizza slammed a Trump tweet about "locked and loaded" as inflamatory because many people supposedly would not read the rest of the tweet which puts that term in context.
Get it? The vile racists who promoted violence in Charlottesvile, Virginia over the weekend, groups that include the KKK and Nazis, are part of the “far right” and “hard line conservatives.” That’s according to the New York Times in a front page story on Tuesday. Including the headline, the paper used the phrase “far right” or “conservative” six times to connect racist thugs to the political right.
Despite President Trump condemning white supremacist hate groups by name on Monday for the violence in Charlottesville, on Tuesday, the network morning shows lined up to blame the President for the rise of such groups and having “emboldened” them with his 2016 campaign.
When a lib turns on their movement’s idol, something must be very wrong indeed. So when Ta-Nehisi Coates blamed the Obama administration for allowing white supremacy to happen, one has to wonder if their common sense left them completely.
Ta-Nehisi Coates, the race-obsessed National Correspondent for The Atlantic, gave an interview on August 15 to taxpayer-subsidized Pacifica Radio's Democracy Now, where he offered his opinion on Trump, racism (of course), Charlottesville, and white supremacy, as a plug for his new book, We Were Eight Years in Power: An American Tragedy. And, while Republicans of course are the biggest culprits for allowing racism to continue, Coates stated that even former President Obama was in some way responsible.
As Hollywood reacted to the incidents that happened on Saturday in Charlottesville, some people definitely overreacted. Lorde, a pop star from New Zealand, offered her two cents on Twitter. On Saturday, August 12, as everyone panicked over the white supremacist rally, Lorde tweeted out, “Being a privileged white non-US citizen, I feel like tweeting to reinforce how horrific POC treatment here is unnecessary and inappropriate.”
Climate alarmist Al Gore’s second film, An Inconvenient Sequel, failed to heat up the box-office, falling from 16th to 18th over the Aug. 11-13 weekend. It’s a dramatic fall from glory for the climate alarmist whose first film, An Inconvenient Truth, won several awards including an Oscar and grossed $24 million.
Since early April, the New York Times has presented a weekly "Red Century" series of op-eds dedicated to "Exploring the history and legacy of Communism, 100 years after the Russian Revolution" in 1917. The competition for the worst "communism wasn't all that bad" entry was pretty close until Saturday (seen in Sunday's print edition), when Kristen R. Ghodsee, a University of Pennsylvania professor of Russian and East European studies, told readers that "Women Had Better Sex Under Socialism," and deigned to tell us why.
On Friday's Real Time show on HBO, host Bill Maher; MSNBC contributor and historian Jon Meacham; and CNN host Fareed Zakaria all admitted that it is not necessarily "racist" for one to have concerns about whether immigrants are assimilating properly into American culture after Maher brought up Zakaria's recent article criticizing Democrats on the subject. After Zakaria made an argument similar to his recent commentary, Meacham -- a former Newsweek editor -- noted that assimilation by immigrants has always been a legitimate topic of concern before blaming Republicans for making it look "racist" to have such a debate.
This is a good demonstration of the worst use of anonymous sources -- not to provide sensitive and valuable information, but to insult people with no consequences. Yahoo News is circulating a report from Tom Porter of the dying husk of a magazine called Newsweek about how President Trump announced his daughter Ivanka would had the U.S. delegation at the Global Entrepreneurship Summit in southern India in November. The magazine writer noted a former Time reporter tweeted that an Indian diplomat, whose name he didn't reveal, remarked on Ivanka: "We regard Ivanka Trump the way we do half-wit Saudi princes. It's in our national interest to flatter them.”
During Monday’s MTP Daily, MSNBC’s Katy Tur proved once again she wasn’t ready for prime time when she got into a heated argument with Ohio Representative Mike Tuner about whether or not President Trump had ever denounced hate groups during the 2016 campaign. “I don't think he did. I was there every day,” she chided her guest who was accurately saying Trump did.
NBC’s Midnight, Texas focuses on the denizens of a small town named Midnight which includes vampires, witches, spirits, and other supernatural creatures. Overall, the show, while never passing into the realm of interesting, tows the line between the fantasy and political. Unfortunately, now they’ve brought in symbols from Christianity, which means it’s time to be called out.
Even though the next presidential election won’t be held for more than three years, Donald Trump’s campaign staff is already hard at work, including the production of a 30-second television advertisement entitled “Let President Trump Do His Job.” It doesn’t take long for the ad to attack the Republican official’s “enemies” in both the mainstream media and Congress.
On Monday, President Trump called out the racist hate groups involved in Saturday’s chaos in Charlottesville, Virginia. In addition to calling them “evil” and “repugnant,” Trump said: “Those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs including the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists and other hate groups.” This full throated denouncement was exactly what the Big Three Networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) craved from the President, but now that they had it, they shifted their attacks to: “What took him so long?”
Colin Kaepernick's protest during the 2016 NFL season is on the verge of getting dwarfed. This weekend's start of NFL preseason games and the left-stream media narrative that President Trump failed to "condemn far-right demonstrators" at Charlottesville has ignited a heightened new state of athlete protests.
