Those who weighed in on this Covington Catholic High School student story include some members of the Catholic clergy, Catholic lay leaders, and non-Catholics. Some were temperate in their remarks and some were vicious. Some have issued a full-throated apology, while others have offered less than a complete apology. Others are sticking to their guns. Two persons went off the cliff.
Twitter has refused to delete many calls for violence by verified Twitter celebrities against conservative Catholic students or suspend the offenders stay from the platform. A fake news story falsely accused Covington Catholic High School students of harassing a Native American activist outraged the internet this past weekend. The story has since been corrected by some outlets, but the damage has been done. Twitter has still not taken down many of these threats or calls for violence.
The year 2017 unfolded into a massive surprise to liberals, who fully expected that before Christmas we would (a) all die in a nuclear war over Donald Trump’s tweets, or (b) be swearing in President Pence after Trump was impeached or petulantly quit because the news media were full of meanies. More than ever, the media see themselves as valiant tellers of truth. More than ever, most Americans peg them as emotionally intense leftists.
Remember when the left proudly hailed former President Barack Obama as a "Lightworker?" Time magazine was so in awe of Obama that they even compared him to Jesus, complete with halo pictures. Children of liberals were inducted into performing songs of praise for Obama that sounded as if they were singing about a Great Leader in Pyongyang. And yet Reza Aslan, former host of CNN's Believer, is now squawking about The dangerous cult of Donald Trump:
CNN on Friday belatedly made the right decision to cut ties with host Reza Aslan in the wake of his profanity-laced tirade against Donald Trump. According to a statement, “CNN has decided to not move forward with production” with his show Believer. Media Research Center President Brent Bozell issued the following statement about the MRC’s effort to hold Aslan accountable:
Variety’s Brian Steinberg reported on Friday afternoon that CNN has cut ties with far-left Believer host Reza Aslan following a nasty June 3 tweet using an expletive to attack President Trump following the London terror attacks. Promising more to come, Steinberg provided a CNN statement announcing the decision.
Some of CNN host Reza Aslan’s other disgusting and hateful tweets are mysteriously disappearing. The cable network star drew controversy when he called Donald Trump a “piece of shit” last weekend. He lamely “apologized” and declared, “That’s not like me.” Except, of course, it is.
On the Monday edition of the Fox Business Network’s Risk and Reward, the Media Research Center’s Tim Graham annihilated CNN’s lukewarm response to Believe host Reza Aslan’s vulgar tweet attacking President Donald Trump following Saturday night’s London terror attacks.
Apparently Reza Aslan, the star and executive producer of CNN's Believer documentary series is among those who haven't figured out that whatever you put out there on the Internet stays out there on the Internet. In "apologizing" for his profane, since-deleted tweet directed at President Donald Trump Saturday evening after the London terrorist attacks, Aslan claimed that "it's not like me" to respond as he did in a "derogatory fashion." Your Twitter history says otherwise, pal.
CNN host Reza Aslan went on a profanity-laced tirade against Donald Trump over the weekend. Media Research Center President Brent Bozell called pit Aslan and the liberal cable network. He issued the following statement:
