Conservatives & Republicans
On Saturday's AM Joy on MSNBC, as the show spent much of its time reacting to President Donald Trump's response to white racists rallying in Charlottesville last weekend, recurring MSNBC guest and self-described Republican Richard Painter repeatedly demonized the Christian right as he lumped them in with white racists as extremists who should be denounced by Trump and other Republican leaders to drive them out of the party. Painter -- a former legal counsel for the George W. Bush White House -- trashed conservative Christians as "fake Christians" and "phony Christians" who "couldn't read a Bible if they tried."
Late in the going on Thursday’s CNN Tonight, two eyebrow-raising claims arose when host Don Lemon compared Robert E. Lee statues to having schools named after Osama Bin Laden while political commentator Keith Boykin defended the Missouri liberal who called for President Trump’s assassination.
Promoting his one-man anti-Trump Broadway show on NBC’s Late Night With Seth Meyers early Friday morning, left-wing activist Michael Moore admitted the reality of the President’s 2016 election victory: “You have to say, ‘Donald Trump outsmarted us all.’ And then deal with the throw-up that’s in your mouth....It’s the truth.”
One can always count on the left to overreach. Thursday’s Hardball featured MSNBC legal analyst Paul Butler arguing that President Trump’s Charlottesville response was only a continuation of “white racism” put forth by former Republican Presidents Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan. To make the show’s more loony, guest Erroll Southers later argued that “the right-wing” is “the greatest threat to our nation’s homeland and national security” thanks to Trump.
On Wednesday's All In show on MSNBC, substitute host Joy Reid presided over two recurring MSNBC guests who hurled hyperbolic accusations against Republicans into a discussion of President Donald Trump's reaction to the Charlottesville violence. In one segment, "life-long Republican" Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson asserted that "my Republican party has racists all over it."
Media Research Center (MRC) President Brent Bozell issued a statement today in response to a Wednesday evening interview between MTP Daily host Chuck Todd and Mark Bray, a prominent voice in the radical left-wing Antifa movement. The Antifa supporter went unchallenged as he promoted his violent extremist beliefs to MSNBC viewers:
On Monday's Anderson Cooper 360, the smearing of Steve Bannon went so far as to claim that he and other White House advisors have "ties to hate groups" as host Cooper set up a discussion of rumors that he might soon leave the White House. As if the right-leaning Breitbart News might be a "hate group," Cooper cited Bannon's time there, and his quote from more than a year ago about giving a "platform to the Alt-Right."
In the wake of President Trump’s wild press conference in the lobby of Trump Tower, the Big Three Networks put extra focus on Trump, along with questions about how he views race in the United States. So come Wednesday, NBC Nightly News aired a report where they sat down with a self-described white nationalist to hear him sing the praises of the President. In contrast, CBS Evening News held a small focus group where they spoke with three Republican women, two black and one white, who defended Trump.
Liberal business executives are leaping like lemmings from President Donald Trump's manufacturing advisory council. Good riddance. These silly string-spined CEOs have sided with social justice agitators, Beltway media enablers and Democratic resistance knuckleheads who believe Trump was wrong to condemn violence and hatred on all sides of the political spectrum.
In the South during the Jim Crow era, the "one-drop rule," codified into law, asserted that if a person had just one drop of African-American blood, they were considered "black." I wonder what we'd learn if we gave former KKK leader David Duke and the "white nationalists" who caused havoc in Charlottesville last Saturday a DNA test to determine their racial makeup?
During MSNBC’s 1 p.m. ET hour on Wednesday, NBC News correspondent Morgan Radford turned to the one regime on earth most like the Nazis in order lecture the United States on race relations. The reporter actually cited a tweet from Iran’s brutal anti-Semitic dictator Ali Khamenei as an example of “global criticism” of President Trump’s reaction to Charlottesville.
Appearing as a guest on Wednesday's CNN Newsroom, CNN senior political reporter Nia-Malika Henderson claimed that the Republican party has been "playing the race card" for "many decades" as she commented on Republican reaction to President Donald Trump's recent comments in which he seemed to give cover to white racist rally participants in Charlottesville.
