Whack Corey Stewart Goes After CNN For 'Exploiting Heyer's Death' To Blame Far Right

Sat, 19 Aug 2017 00:00:01 +0000

CNN's Chris Cuomo calmly battled Virginia Senatorial hopeful Corey Stewart as he complained that CNN refused to agree with Trump's "both sides" argument, refused to call the murder of Heather Heyer terrorism, claimed CNN was exploiting her death and whined about the Confederate statues being taken down.

Since no current Republican members of the Senate refused to go on air to support Trump, we get hacks like Corey Stewart out there to cause chaos.

Stewart, who is running against Tim Kaine in Virginia apparently memorized his copy of Trump's talking points, about how correct the president was over the violence in Charlottesville, during a white supremacist protest.

Stewart was belligerent from the beginning of the interview to the end and for the most part thought he was interviewing Chris Cuomo as his guest.

Over and over again, Stewart demanded to know why Cuomo and CNN refused to condemn 'violent leftist groups' like Antifa, even though Antifa protected those people under attack by the far right lunatics.

Stewart said, "What is even more tragic though is CNN tried to exploit this woman’s death to try to say all this violence was caused by the far right when you know darn well that there was violence by both sides, Antifa is a violent radical left wing organization which you and other liberals have refused to condemn."

Trumper Bashes CNN For Airing Susan Bro's Words About Trump And Her Daughter

Fri, 18 Aug 2017 23:00:02 +0000

Ed Martin, a favorite of Phyllis Schlafly, attacked CNN's Kate Bolduan and CNN for airing a portion of Susan Bro's passionate response, telling GMA why she refused to take Trump's calls after his horrific press conference on Tuesday.

Since Republican members of Congress are refusing to show up on cable news to defend Trump's despicable actions, low level hacks like Corey Stewart and now Martin are being booked in their places and they are gutter-low.

Earlier in the program, host Bolduan had played a GMA clip with Susan Bro, Heather Heyer's mother, which irked Trump supporter Ed Martin. He was particularly agitated over Chris Cillizza's prediction that there is a "political reckoning" coming.

Bolduan's panel contained Martin, Keith Boykin and Ana Navarra.

Bolduan started the segment by asking Martin about Susan Bro's words, "If no other comment matters, if no one else's matters, shouldn't Susan Bro's comment matter? Shouldn't the president listen to her?

Martin said, " I think he will." After saying some words about what a tragedy Heyer's death was he went on.

"On the other hand, you're say we are not talking politics -- sounds to me you used it at the beginning of the hour as a political cudgel, not as something about morality --

Bolduan replied, "Me?

Martin, "Yeah, you guys, you played it."

"That I used it as a political cudgel? No, I played what a grieving mother said on TV today," Kate said.

Johnny Cash Family Tells Nazis: Don't Wear 'Man In Black' T-Shirts

Fri, 18 Aug 2017 22:00:01 +0000

From Rosanne Cash

A message from the children of Johnny Cash:

We were alerted to a video of a young man in Charlottesville, a self-proclaimed neo-Nazi, spewing hatred and bile. He was wearing a t-shirt emblazoned with the name of Johnny Cash, our father. We were sickened by the association.

Johnny Cash was a man whose heart beat with the rhythm of love and social justice. He received humanitarian awards from, among others, the Jewish National Fund, B’nai Brith, and the United Nations. He championed the rights of Native Americans, protested the war in Vietnam, was a voice for the poor, the struggling and the disenfranchised, and an advocate for the rights of prisoners. Along with our sister Rosanne, he was on the advisory board of an organization solely devoted to preventing gun violence among children. His pacifism and inclusive patriotism were two of his most defining characteristics. He would be horrified at even a casual use of his name or image for an idea or a cause founded in persecution and hatred. The white supremacists and neo-Nazis who marched in Charlottesville are poison in our society, and an insult to every American hero who wore a uniform to fight the Nazis in WWII. Several men in the extended Cash family were among those who served with honor.

Our dad told each of us, over and over throughout our lives, "Children, you can choose love or hate. I choose love."

CNN Documents Trump's Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Month

Fri, 18 Aug 2017 20:47:00 +0000

Trump has insisted on several occasions that no other presidency has accomplished as much as his in the first six months of its existence.

Looking at this list of the last four weeks alone that CNN has put together, there may be some truth to that. But there's nothing here that really merits the term "accomplishment" so much as it does "incompetence."

But as George Costanza famously said, when you lump it all together in a short period, it's impressive.

It has been a chaotic four weeks, even by these White House standards.

So let's just all take a moment just to remind you what has happened, incredibly significant events, one after the other.

In no particular order, President Trump--in the last four weeks--has:

Alex Jones Gets Coffee Dumped On His Head In Seattle

Fri, 18 Aug 2017 19:05:00 +0000

Alex Jones ran around Seattle with a camera trying to bully people until a citizen laughed in his face and dumped his thermos filled with coffee on his head.

Jones was ranting about the media not calling the terror attack in Barcelona, 'Islamic terror" as he held up a USA Today newspaper. When a passerby flipped him off, he yelled, " you're a coward."

"You're not an intellectual, you're a fake and a fraud," Jones yelled.

When the guy flipped him the bird again while walking away, Jones ran after him across the street like a maniac.

It looked like Jones was loaded up on something that gave him some extra energy and anger, I wonder what it was? The guy didn't seem intimated and told him to "f*ck off."

The pedestrian kept flipping him off as Jones huffed and puffed with a few fuckyous of his own.

"I said f*ck you," the man said.

Then another passerby started to mock him, "You're trash," he said.

Jones went after him too, "Come tell me on camera" and asked who "intellectually" he was.

"Intellectually, who I am? I'm your momma," he cackled in his face.

"This is what they're turning people into," Jones said.

When Jones said, "A literal slave of the system," the man dumped a thermos of coffee on his head, laughing.

"See that!' As Jones came near, he raised his mug to defend himself.

"I have to get to work, where they have more coffee."




CNN Guest Cut Off After Claims Abraham Lincoln And Adolf Hitler 'Have A Lot In Common'

Fri, 18 Aug 2017 18:55:00 +0000

Bill Starnes, Trump supporter and a member of the North Carolina chapter of the Sons of Confederate Veterans, joined CNN's Brooke Baldwin to discuss his views on why confederate statues should remain standing. It's all for "history's sake," of course.

Right out of the gate, Starnes did not make much of an impression when he lobbed the tired old talking point about the Civil War being about "states' rights" and not slavery. Baldwin, having none of that, gently corrected him by reminding him that the consensus among historians is that "the Civil War wasn't about state's rights and secession," but instead about "upholding the economic system of slavery."

After quoting a Harvard professor and historian, Baldwin chided him. "I mean, I know as a proud southerner, you don't want to hear that, but you can't rewrite history."

"I'm not trying to rewrite history," Starnes shot back. "The professor there needs to actually study some history before he opens his mouth and says something that stupid. "

In a style Jeffrey Lord would have applauded, Starnes then launched into a diatribe about how there was no legislation being worked on to end slavery on the federal level, while snarkily suggesting that perhaps Baldwin should do her homework before an interview.

"With all due respect, as a fellow southerner, with all due respect, I did do my homework and I did cite this so please sir don't tell me to do homework," she said.

Fox News Host Receives Death Threats After Criticizing Trump

Fri, 18 Aug 2017 18:30:01 +0000

Fox News host Eboni Williams is reportedly receiving death threats after she blasted Trump for his “both sides” remarks about the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville. Apparently, Williams’ long record of pandering to Trump supporters on the air has not inoculated her from their intolerant rage.

Williams, an African American, said this during her commentary segment of The Fox News Specialists on Monday:

WILLIAMS: Mr. President, your initial remarks were cowardly and dangerous, and they indeed warranted a second statement. Here’s why. Your presidential campaign slogan, "Make America great again," well, it rose many questions for many: Were Jews, blacks, gays, and Hispanics included in the return of America to her great glory years, or would some of us be left out? Well, I was legitimately unsure. But absent more conclusive evidence, I was willing to give you the benefit of the doubt. I can no longer do that, Mr. President. No more benefit. All doubt.

UPDATED: Bannon Out As White House Political Director

Fri, 18 Aug 2017 16:06:00 +0000

Reports are coming fast and furious that Steve Bannon, former head of Brietbart and current White House Chief Strategist, may be out of a job right now.

Drudge first broke it with cable news following closely after.

----

Looks like the KKK is having an unannounced and unapproved march in Durham, North Carolina, right now. Oh, and they have no permit. Will Donald Trump denounce them on this technicality like he did the Charlottesville counter protesters?

Ha, just kidding.

The Herald Sun is reporting that a march may be underway today in relation to the removal of a confederate statue earlier this week. In response to the threat of a march, the Durham County Sheriff’s Office closed East Main Street in front of the old courthouse.

Gov. LePage: Removing Confederate Statues Just Like Tearing Down NYC 9/11 Memorial

Fri, 18 Aug 2017 15:00:01 +0000

Maine Governor Paul LePage told WGAN-AM's Ken Altshuler and Matt Gagnon that the idea of lefties wanting to get rid of Confederate monuments is just like going to "New York City right now and taking down the monument of those who perished in 9/11. That, it will come to that."

Is there any Governor more odious than Paul LePage?

How is that comparison even on the same plane of existence? All monuments are not created equal, you cretinous a-hole.

You don't revel in the good old days of the south, who traitorously seceded from the country and fought a four year bloody battle to keep slavery alive in America.

To all you jackass Trump surrogates, we have a President's Day, (Washington's Birthday) a national holiday celebrated in late February, but Jefferson Davis, the president of the Confederate States is not celebrated as a national holiday. This is because Davis was the president of treason, no more and no less.

The host at least knew that those Confederate statues that Trump, the KKK and Gov. LePage are so worried and enraged about were put there to intimidate the African American community during the civil right's movement.

LaPage's response was "Oh, come on. That's today. Next week George Washington is gone."
