Hey CNN, take a knee. If you want Donald Trump and America to take you seriously, headlines like Clearly, the Trump administration has a problem with Jews don’t help.
We were witnessing a deliberate effort to push the Jewish victims of genocide into the gray area of killings in general and of faceless and nameless crimes. It was a tell-tale trope of Holocaust deniers and, in the United States no less than anywhere else, one of the hallmarks of the new anti-Semitism. Terrible, but true.
That President Trump, during a visit to the National Museum of African American History and Culture, and after 11 bomb threats were phoned in to Jewish community centers around the country, later says that anti-Semitism is “horrible” and “painful,” does not change the general picture. What is the value of a reaction which comes, not from the heart, but after a storm of pleas, criticisms and protests?
Trump has many flaws. We have no issue with said flaws being called out. Heck, we have a video series of Trump impersonations. Trump is human, he’s going to screw up from time to time. But hating Jews? Not one of Trump’s many flaws. See also his Jewish son in law. After that, skip over to Trump’s fervent and passionate support of Israel. Related, see his close relationship with Netanyahu.
Actually, the author touched on the Bibi alliance in his hit piece against Trump…
And, that the Israeli Prime Minister takes no exception to any of this, that he believes it fitting or perhaps just convenient to heap praise upon Mr. Trump, going so far as to describe him as an unmatched “supporter of the Jewish people and of the Jewish state” and that he does this while appearing in public with him and hamming up their friendship and complicity changes nothing either.
Ok, so the author is just a leftist douchelord of the fake news media kind. No real plot twist there. Unless he wrote about Obama being anti-Israel (see Bibi Netanyahu Throws Down: Directly SLAMS Obama, Kerry for Anti-Israel Resolution and John Kerry Actually Says “Israel can be Jewish OR Democratic. It cannot be both…”) and I missed it. Because if any recent president was a hater of the Jews, it was most certainly Barack “The Future Doesn’t Belong to People Who Mock the Prophet Muhammad” Obama, and not Donald “I Love Israel Bigly” Trump. So we’re clear.
This is why the whole “fake news” moniker has erupted like an embarrassing digestive malfunction. Why in the hell is CNN, a supposed news agency, posting this story at all? It might as well have heralded from a random blogger or a pedophile at Salon.com. If that were the case, no one would take issue with the baseless hit against Trump. But CNN so vehemently defends their bias, they’re still adamant they’re a “news” organization, pieces like this make their predicament worse. In case you’ve been redecorating your cave in industrial modern, CNN is having a clear fake news problem. In that they’re pushing a lot of fake news. They got sued for it.
But please, CNN. By all means. Keep insisting you’re an unbiased news organization simply tasked with reporting truth. We know Trump has fun tossing you to the public wolves for it.
