The enemedia is so desperate to defame and destroy President Trump that they don’t care how ridiculous they make themselves look in doing so. Confronted with the genuine antisemitism of the Jew-hating Muslim Rep. Ilhan Omar, they dredge up the imaginary antisemitism of President Trump, the most pro-Israel President in history, based on a willful misunderstanding of words he spoke about the infamous Charlottesville rally. CNN is shameless in its endless barrage of anti-Trump, anti-American propaganda. These “news” networks are doing everything they can to destroy this country.
“‘CNN Tonight’ Muddies Waters on Anti-Semitism, Downplays Omar to Bash Trump,” by Curtis Houck, Newsbusters, March 7, 2019:
To close out Wednesday’s CNN Tonight, fill-in host Erin Burnett, a CNN correspondent, and two panelists spent over 10 minutes trying to muddy the waters on anti-Semitism, downplaying Minnesota Democratic Congresswoman Ilhan Omar’s long history of anti-Semitic comments because the President’s Charlottesville comments and white supremacists are the ones worth denouncing (instead of both).
So, in other words, Orange Man Bad. Good strategy, guys! Supposedly, some forms of anti-Semitism aren’t as bad as the others.
Burnett started the first of two segments by noting that President Trump fired off a tweet hours earlier blasting Omar and the Democratic Party’s refusal to unequivocally condemn her.
It was after reading the Trump tweet that she smugly went after Trump as a raging hypocrite, implying he’s okay with anti-Semitism and then keeping the charade going in the first question to far-left commentator and weekend host Van Jones (click “expand”):
BURNETT: Okay, now, there is a point, but there is also this point, that comment is coming from a person who said there were good people in this group.
CHARLOTTESVILLE PROTESTERS: Jews will not replace us! Jews will not replace us! Jews will not replace us!
BURNETT: So presumably some of those are good people….[P]ot-kettle-sim is not always the best way to look at the world. However, we just saw what was said there. The President said there were good people on both sides. Obviously, you know, either still believing that or believing he should, you know, that people should have ignored that he said it. How can he make this stand now?
Jones responded that Trump’s “just not a good person to make these kinds of interventions against bias and bigotry because there have been so many acts of bias and bigotry coming from the right that he just hasn’t spoken out against forcefully enough” and thus he doesn’t “have the moral credibility to denounce these kinds of things” even though Democrats should be careful to not “give aid and comfort to anti-Jewish bigots.”
Talk about twisting yourself into a pretzel.
Political commentator Alice Stewart was the lone non-liberal on hand and hit all the right points, but it came after this slanted lead-in from Burnett (click “expand”):
And you know, Alice, when you look at the issue here of the President, right, obviously, it was Charlottesville. But on anti-Semitism, you know, this President, we talk often about a dog whistles that he puts out on white supremacy, but when it comes to anti-Semitism, right? He once tweeted out an image once of Hillary Clinton. The “most corrupt candidate ever” was inside the Star of David on top of a pile of cash. Then he was in front of an audience of Republican Jewish Committee members and called them negotiators. He said they wouldn’t support him because he didn’t want to accept their money which is obviously an inappropriate joke that he made. Then he said don’t say I’m anti- Semitic. I have these beautiful Jewish grandbabies, referring to Ivanka’s children. Does he have moral authority on this, Alice?
Never Trump darling Max Boot was the last panelist to weigh in and Burnett again tried to tip the scales, blasting Trump as “so flawed” because he “has encouraged anti-Semitic things said, anti-Semitic things, racist things, and misogynistic things regularly.”…
