CNN Uses NZ Massacre to Bash Trump and Breitbart

2019 March 15

You knew this was coming – CNN, the network that does everything possible to downplay and often censor news of Islamic violence, has made the New Zealand masques massacre non-stop news and is using it to attack President Trump and conservative media.

When a Catholic or Protestant church is attacked by Muslims in Africa and 40, 50 or 60 people are killed (which happens with regularity), it is barely mentioned (if at all) and motives are always unknown. But, when mosques are attacked and Muslims are killed, it’s totally different.

At CNN, news is whatever fits its leftist agenda.

CNN’s Dana Bash falsely claimed President Trump and Breitbart News are to blame for the New Zealand mosque massacre.

This is not the first time the far-left Bash has, without evidence, spread conspiracy theories linking Trump to violence. What’s more, there is no record of the left-wing Bash ever pushing back against her own employers’ frequent calls for violence or the countless times CNN has openly encouraged and defended violence against the political right.

But as you will see in the video below, Bash is deliberately looking to deceive CNN viewers not only with a phony connection between Trump and the horror that unfolded in New Zealand Thursday night, but the fake news her fabricated connection is premised on:

BASH: I don’t even know what to say to that anymore, except…cut it out. And it’s not an accident that he said that with Breitbart. He thinks that those are his people. But the world is such that everything is connected today. And people who are crazy in New Zealand or anywhere else on the globe–can read Breitbart. And this is something we all have to remember and Michael Smerconish said so eloquently in the last hour, everybody with a microphone, especially leaders of countries, no matter which country it is, but especially the United States.

Bash is referring to and deliberately misinterpreting an exclusive interview Breitbart News conducted this week with the president. Regarding the left’s attempt to kill free speech, within the obvious context of political tactics, Breitbart News reported:

“So here’s the thing—it’s so terrible what’s happening,” Trump said when asked by Breitbart News Deputy Political Editor Amanda House about his anticipated executive order on campus free speech. “You know, the left plays a tougher game, it’s very funny. I actually think that the people on the right are tougher, but they don’t play it tougher. Okay? I can tell you I have the support of the police, the support of the military, the support of the Bikers for Trump – I have the tough people, but they don’t play it tough — until they go to a certain point, and then it would be very bad, very bad. But the left plays it cuter and tougher. Like with all the nonsense that they do in Congress … with all this invest[igations]—that’s all they want to do is –you know, they do things that are nasty. Republicans never played this.”

So, as you can see, Bash is intentionally taking Trump out of context. Only a fool or liar would see anything in those comments about violence.

Bash is also one of the reasons CNN is a national laughingstock when it comes to issues of credibility and ratings.

And CNN’s ratings continue to crater.

Just last week, when compared to last year, while Fox News and MSNBC saw a jump in viewership during this same time, CNN lost a whopping nine percent of its total day audience and a stunning 16 percent of its already anemic primetime audience.

Even Trump-hating leftists are tired of being lied to by the likes of a Dana Bash, who poses as an objective reporter when she’s just another left-wing commentator who lost her credibility years ago.

And no one likes to be lied to, to be played for a sucker, to be told one thing by a Dana Bash only to discover later she was looking to deceive you.

Hat tip: Breitbart

    Like clockwork and right into the shooters own fucking narrative, though I doubt CNN bothered to read the manifesto or share it’s content in full with viewers as it expose them as supporters of the shooter actually.

    Zero surprise.

    CNN reports whatever promotes its leftist agenda.

    Again, going back to Covington Catholic: What did the boys do to merit national coverage? They broke no laws and even according to the highly-edited fake video, at worst the boys were rude to a 62-year old Native American. They broke to laws.

    Why didn’t CNN check out Nathan Phillips? They certainly have the resources. Yet it was bloggers who discovered Phillips had never been to Vietnam, was a refrigerator repairman at a Marine installation in Nebraska, went AWOL three times and received a general rather than honorable discharge.

    Why? For CNN this was a seemingly a dream come true … like a man asking Dana Bash for a date.

    It’s racism straight up. Favored groups can do no wrong. But if a white person does something it has cosmic implications.

    Does anyone here honestly believe Dana Bash and the rest of the CNN crew weren’t filled with glee when they heard mosques had been attacked?

    4 You know they were absolutely ecstatic once they new it wasn’t another muzzie doing it, they’re uninterested in those stories out of the M.E or even Philippines.

    Yes, 9, bc3b, Deplorable Don is great 🙂

    Electoral College:

    :In their infinite wisdom, the United States’ Founders created the Electoral College to ensure the STATES were fairly represented. Why should one or two densely populated areas speak for the whole of the nation?
    The following list of statistics has been making the rounds on the Internet. It should finally put an end to the argument as to why the Electoral College makes sense.

    There are 3,141 counties in the United States.
    Trump won 3,084 of them.
    Clinton won 57.
    There are 62 counties in New York State.
    Trump won 46 of them.
    Clinton won 16.
    Clinton won the popular vote by approx. 1.5 million votes.
    In the 5 counties that encompass NYC, (Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Richmond & Queens) Clinton received well over 2 million more votes than Trump. (Clinton only won 4 of these counties; Trump won Richmond)
    Therefore these 5 counties alone, more than accounted for Clinton winning the popular vote of the entire country.
    These 5 counties comprise 319 square miles.
    The United States is comprised of 3,797,000 square miles.

    When you have a country that encompasses almost 4 million square miles of territory, it would be ludicrous to even suggest that the vote of those who inhabit a mere 319 square miles should dictate the outcome of a national election.
    Large, densely populated Democrat cities (NYC, Chicago, LA, etc.) DO NOT and SHOULD NOT speak for the rest of our country! Always remember that the word Democrat can be found in the dictionary between Delusional and Despicable
    And…it’s been verified and documented that those aforementioned 319 square miles are where the majority of our nation’s problems exist and continue to get worse on a daily basis.”

    Plus in time I think we’ll find that Hillary’s “popular vote” was made up of fake votes.

    6, about a third of the way through that tract. I’m impressed!
    Very sensible, very clear presentation.

    I see a date 1977 on that Glubb essay so it’s about 4 decades old?
    Without necessarily agreeing with his every observation, it’s a well thought out and lucidly explained thesis.

    Jim,

    That piece might be even older than that. Good chance that original concept might be 70 yrs old now. He has Orders of the Empire as long as my arm. Bio here — https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Bagot_Glub

    The general phases he outlines certainly fit the US if you use a start date of 1776. 10 generations @ 25 per puts us at 2026 for an end. Then just look at the issues we are facing and politicans we have and ….

    For those considering removing themselves from high tax states — https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-03-16/missouri-bill-would-require-every-resident-aged-18-34-possess-ar-15 — MO might be the place to consider.
