Why CNN is now a target

Since the election of Trump, CNN has gone completely out of its way to distort reality to support its preferred narratives.  See recent example below (helpfully recaptioned at the bottom to bring us back to reality):

CNN's world

Full disclosure: I personally scrolled back through CNN’s Twitter feed to confirm that yes, they did in fact Tweet that message and image.  I also visited EuroNews to confirm the quote that was added to the bottom of the image above. (Due diligence is more important today than ever before).

This is how little respect CNN has for the average viewer’s intelligence.  (To be fair, even the college-educated aren’t necessarily prepared to think critically these days.)  It took me less than five minutes to confirm both parts of the meme above, and to cross check with other news sites that noted the more violent aspects of the G20 Summit protests.  Yet CNN boils it down on Twitter to a “we are the world” gathering of “peaceful” protestors.  Even in their own photo, the question should come up “why so many police officers there?”  But answering that question would mean looking at the long history of Leftist violence at such international meetings (such as the “Battle in Seattle.”).  There are many like me who also distrust the globalist agenda for different reasons, but you don’t (yet) see us acting like this on a regular basis.

Angry at the deception yet?  In the event you think this is just an isolated instance of malpractice on CNN’s part, here’s some more reading for you.  This isn’t new for CNN — or, for that matter, most of the corporate media world (I include Fox in that as well, for what it’s worth).  The divide between reality and their reporting has been growing for some time.  With the election of Obama, however, most of what was left of the pretense of objective journalism was jettisoned in order to enable the Anointed One’s “fundamental transform(ation)” of America.

CNN’s reputation deserves the trashing it’s currently experiencing.  But while it’s fun to see the media get a well-deserved comeuppance, let’s also remember that if there’s to be a restoration in this nation critical thinking and rational discourse MUST be taught and emphasized again — even in policy areas where the facts are very uncomfortable to the individually messianic “we can save the world” worldview.

Saturday Sounds

Seems the Left isn’t happy with Dana Loesch’s recent NRA ad that addresses their violent methodologies.  The NRA is happy to tell them to “get over themselves.”

By the way, the “clinched fist of truth” may catch on.  There is a saying that “during times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act.”

OK, Left: “you say you want a revolution…”

The patience… it runs out

I wonder how much more of this we’ll see in the months ahead:

A Make America Great Again rally that began with a dove release to symbolize peace turned violent when supporters were doused with pepper spray by anti-Trump protesters in Southern California…

In addition to the angry scuffles on Huntington Beach, protesters clashed with MAGA marchers in Philadelphia and in Seaside Heights, New Jersey. There were also rallies across the country in Lansing, Boston, and Providence, Rhode Island.

The pepper-sprayed marchers were seen cringing in pain as other supporters clad in Trump t-shirts helped them. One man in an army green Trump hat angrily chased a protester with an American flag.

Read the entire piece at the link above, and note the many photos of the event.

For decades, traditional Americans have been called racist… and shrugged it off.

For years, openly anti-American groups have hurled insult after insult at our nation’s history and heritage… and were ignored as kooks with nothing better to do.

In recent months, juvenile idiots pretending to be protestors have blocked freeways, vandalized stores belonging to companies that publicly seem to agree with their politics(?!?), and the rest of America looked on and began to ask “what the **** is going on?”

Now we have black-clad, masked “protestors” interfering with the free speech rights of Trump supporters, to the point of open assault (that’s what using pepper spray is — and if not used in self-defense, it’s a crime).  In this case, a few Soros minions learned the hard way the patriots are finally losing their tolerance for this sort of thing.

More of these lessons are needed.
