War on Terrorism
As expected, CNN responded to President Trump’s weekend tweet criticizing CNN International by basking in self-righteous indignation, including a Monday afternoon response by Wolf Blitzer that featured hilarious claims such as CNNi being “free and independent” while proving Trump’s point by inviting on a former Obama official to sing their praises.
NBC’s The Brave continues to show us not only the clearly awesome actions of military members but the global context as well. In yet another display of unashamed pride for service, the latest episode takes on the truly despicable enemy of Islamic terrorism in the West.
A BuzzFeed columnist has declared that "Cars don’t belong on the streets of big cities, and we should do everything in our power to get rid of them." We've seen this idea proposed by environmentalists from time to time based on "climate change," and by urban planners in the name of creating a few blocks of open space, but Jessie Singer's advocacy of a total ban is largely in response to Tuesday's terrorist attack in New York City.
GQ host and former MSNBC crazy Keith Olbermann joined the ladies of ABC’s The View on Friday and he came locked and loaded with head-shaking statements, chiefly his belief that President Trump has been worse for America than Osama bin Laden. In addition, Olbermann made the stark admission that he owes George W. Bush and John McCain apologies for trashing them and wishes Bush could have had a third term as President instead of Trump being in the White House now.
Who does David Jolly think he is? Joe Scarborough? On Wednesday’s Hardball, the frequent MSNBC guest and former Florida Republican Congressman blasted his party as racists for not pushing for gun control post-Las Vegas by a white shooter but calling for immigration changes following Tuesday’s Manhattan terror attack by an Uzbeki immigrant.
"Shout 'Allahu Akbar,' because this strikes fear in the hearts of the non-believers." Who knew hijacker Mohammed Atta's parting words, discovered in his journal after the 9/11 attacks, would become a national punchline? The louder and more frequently jihadists around the globe shriek their signature battle cry, the more fervently multicultural apologists deny its meaning. They've transformed the Islamic supremacists' obvious and explicit call for violence into a bland utterance of peace as indiscernible and nonsensical as "Aloha Snackbar."
The terrorist truck attack in Manhattan by an Uzbekistan national, inspired by ISIS propaganda, was the ostensible subject of Max Fisher and Amanda Taub’s “The Interpreter” column in Thursday’s New York Times. But it was more of an exercise in trying to weaken the link between “terrorism” and radical Islam. The authors gain revealed their liberal priorities by fretting over even labeling such attacks by radical Islamists as terrorism: “This Time Was Terror. What About Las Vegas?” And a front-page story downplayed, in typical Times fashion, the Islamic connection, asserting "there is no single reason" someone would commit such an act, blaming "monsters inside" him.
In the wake of the New York City truck attack, President Trump called on Congress to eliminate the Diversity Visa Lottery Program since the terrorist used the program to enter the United States in 2010. It was an idea that had bipartisan support in the past, but on Wednesday the broadcast networks claimed the President was exploiting a tragedy for political gain. Yet they themselves have a long history of doing just that after mass shootings.
Whether he was joking or not, CNN senior White House correspondent Jim Acosta made a fool of himself on Wednesday afternoon, spreading fake news that President Trump “now has the world record for injecting politics into the aftermath of a terror attack” for suggesting changes to immigration policy after Tuesday’s Manhattan terror attack. Turns out, as we’ll see, the news media, and particularly CNN, may be the real record holders.
Just like clockwork, following Tuesday’s ISIS-inspired terrorist attack in New York City, the liberal media quickly painted American Muslims as the real victims. In a story published on NBCNews.com just hours after a jihadist used a rental truck to kill eight people and injure twelve others in lower Manhattan, reporter Chris Fuchs warned: “In the wake of Tuesday’s attack, some Muslim Americans and community leaders expressed concerns over how their religion would be perceived and whether Muslims would become targets of violence.”
In the aftermath of Tuesday’s terror attack in New York City, Wednesday’s Morning Joe devoted most of their broadcast to the story, with the hosts and guests repeatedly trashing President Trump for his tweets suggesting that tougher restrictions on immigration were needed to prevent future attacks by immigrants like the Uzbek national who killed eight people. The liberal panelists were also upset by Trump pointing out that Democratic Senator Chuck Schumer supported the visa lottery program that reportedly allowed the terrorist into the U.S. back in 2010.
Just hours after news broke that a radical inspired by ISIS drove into a bikepath, killing eight people and injuring over a dozen others, MSNBC was already out deflecting blame from the radical religious ideology behind the attack. The network’s terrorism analyst, Malcolm Nance, defended Islam, saying it wasn’t responsible for Tuesday’s terror attack. He even brought Christianity into the mix, saying that sometimes Christians were responsible for terror.
