You’d think they’d learn – but they haven’t. You’d think the left in America would learn that insulting the American electorate, calling the very people whose votes they hope to win all kinds of vile, nasty, hurtful names is no way to bring them over to your side. It’s not a particularly difficult concept to grasp, but they just can’t help themselves.
After having been called racsits, haters, xenophobes, homophobes, Islamaphobes and worse for the past eight years, Americans revolted last November and pushed Donald Trump into the White House. And now rather than tone it down, one of the left’s principal mouthpieces, good ‘ol CNN, has gone nuclear.
The Daily Caller reports that CNN has come right out with it and claimed that all “Trump voters are white supremacists by default“:
“CNN used the voices of a few professors and activists to assert anyone who voted for President Donald Trump is a white supremacist in a news report Wednesday, and to blame these “ordinary” people for the violence in Charlottesville.
Trump voters helped advance white supremacy by giving them room to operate, CNN reported based on the assertions of others in a piece headlined, “‘White Supremacists by default’: How ordinary people made Charlottesville possible.”
“It’s easy to focus on the angry white men in paramilitary gear who looked like they were mobilizing for a race war in the Virginia college town,” CNN reported. “But it’s the ordinary people — the voters who elected a reality TV star with a record of making racially insensitive comments, the people who move out of the neighborhood when people of color move in, the family members who ignore a relative’s anti-Semitism — who give these type of men room to operate.”
CNN put the weight of the assertion on the views of what they described as “activists, historians and victims of extremism,” but made no visible effort to question their assertions or provide a counter point of view. Fordham University professor Mark Naison’s, for example, is quoted prominently in the piece accusing tens of millions of Americans of being white supremacists.
“We are a country with a few million passionate white supremacists — and tens of millions of white supremacists by default,” Naison told CNN. He’s a political activist and history professor. He compared all Trump voters to “nice people” who facilitated the horrific violence of the Holocaust and the genocide in Rwanda by looking the other way.
In a ‘different but the same’ story run right alongside it, the Daily Caller writes about a Clemson Professor who has come forward with his own brand of hatred in claiming that ALL Republicans are “racist scum”.
Keep it up, left. Keep it up. Keep pouring on the hate, keep right on calling the American people every name in the book. It’s working great. (If you’re a conservative, that is.) People aren’t attracted to hate and bitterness; they’re repulsed by it. All your anger, vileness and hate has done is elect Donald Trump and a whole lot of other Republicans. It’s likely to re-elect him and follow that up with eight years of President Pence. You are the best strategists the Republican Party has had in decades.
