Despite President Trump’s full-throated denunciation of racism and white supremacy on Monday, NBC Nightly News was determined to place the weekend’s mass shootings at his feet. The network went to such extreme lengths for their narrative that they flew chief foreign correspondent Richard Engel all the way out to somewhere in Germany to give neo-Nazis a platform.
Over the weekend, MSNBC's AM Joy show demonstrated its inability to engage in sober criticism of President Donald Trump rather than descending into over the top hyperbole as two frequent guests of the show likened Trump supporters to Nazis and KKK members. Comedian Dean Obeidallah claimed that the word "Trump" is becoming a "modern-day swastika," MSNBC contributor Jason Johnson saw a "modern-day lynching" of Ilhan Omar and her "Squad" colleagues, and The Beat D.C's Tiffany Cross declared that a MAGA hat is equivalent to a "Nazi symbol" or "Klan hood."
On Thursday's Amanpour and Company on PBS, host Christiane Amanpour spent more than 20 minutes covering newly passed laws restricting abortion in a number of states, but only heard from the pro-abortion side as she spoke with liberal activist Gloria Steinem for almost 10 minutes, and then Planned Parenthood member, Dr. David Eisenberg, who performs abortions in Missouri.
On Sunday's Up with David Gura show on MSNBC, during a panel discussion lambasting White House officials like Kellyanne Conway for pushing "lies" and "propaganda" in their press appearances, the show made an on-screen misspelling that seems unlikely to have been an innocent typo as the chyron misquoted Conway as saying President Donald Trump "commended" neo-Nazis.
Is there any stereotype that leftists like to push more than that all Republicans are racist? Or neo-Nazis? What better way than to do that than through a bunch of rural white supremacists driving pick-up trucks suppressing black voters?
On Sunday's Up with David Gura on MSNBC, during a panel discussion of President Donald Trump criticizing U.S. immigration policy during a speech to the Republican Jewish Coalition, host Gura invited Lynn Sweet -- Washington bureau chief of the Chicago Sun-Times -- to complain about Jews who have responded favorably to Trump's rhetoric that was earlier in the segment likened to Nazi Germany.
On Wednesday's Full Frontal show on TBS, liberal comedienne Samantha Bee displayed the latest example of liberals throwing around accusations of racism as she not only suggested that Fox News viewers are Nazi sympathizers, but a segment about alleged voter suppression hinted that most whites are racist because they refuse to vote for Democrats.
If there’s one thing liberals are good at, it’s taking a small problem and turning it into a crisis with the fate of civilization itself at stake. A master of that tactic is Jennifer Wright, political editor at large for Harper’s Bazaar, who last week penned an article espousing the philosophy that “taking away people’s passports and citizenship is a precursor to genocide” while comparing President Donald Trump and the rest of the GOP to Nazi war criminals.
For much of the day on Friday and into the weekend, various hosts on both CNN and MSNBC were hard at work smearing Fox News host Laura Ingraham as someone who uses her show to promote "racist" and "white supremacist" views as they reacted to a commentary she gave on The Ingraham Angle show in which she advocated for merit-based immigration and lamented dramatic "massive demographic" changes.
They’ve called him a racist, a cult leader, and a foreign agent, but now they’re going the full “Hitler.” After just recently digging up some “professionals” willing to claim that the Trump movement is aimed at taking down democracy, Salon writer Chauncey Devega found a history professor with even less professional self-respect.
On New Day Saturday, CNN host Christi Paul gave liberal MoveOn.org activist Anna Galland a forum to promote weekend protests against enforcing border security laws, which included references to the Holocaust against Jews in Nazi Germany as well as the internment of Japanese-Americans in the 1940s. The CNN host even sounded like she thought it was a good idea to make such comparisons as she suggested that it might be effective in winning people over.
On Monday's Deadline: White House, MSNBC contributor Steve Schmidt railed against President Donald Trump and his supporters as the former Republican-turned-Democrat complained that the Trump "faction" is "trying to impose systematic cruelty upon all the rest of us," and even threw in a Hitler reference as he invoked "Munich circa 1928." Even though the former John McCain campaign strategist last week announced via Twitter that "I renounce my membership in the Republican Party" and pledged to vote for Democrats in the future, he was still credited on screen as a "Republican strategist."
