Sad but completely predictable given the rotten state of the media – CNN in particular – and the Democratic party’s descent into the throes of hatred unseen since 1930’s Nazi Germany…
The media is continuing to mainstream the most extreme elements of the Democratic party and on Sunday, radical Rep. Rashida Tlaib was given a forum to spew her hatred on CNN’s “State Of The Union” with Jake Tapper.
By virtue of being a Muslim woman, Tlaib is in big demand as the “news” shows rush to exploit the tragic and senseless massacres at two New Zealand mosques in order to open yet another line of attack against President Trump.
Tlaib who has vowed to “impeach the motherf*cker” was welcomed with open arms by her fellow Trump hater who gave her free reign to use the dead in Christchurch as an excuse to push back against critics of her virulently anti-Semitic colleague Ilhan Omar.
The Minnesota freshman has been under sustained fire for her unrepentant hatred of Isreal and Jew-bashing and Tlaib has been one of her most staunch defenders along with the Farrakhan supporters that are deeply embedded within the Congressional Black Caucus.
The mosque slaughter is akin to manna from heaven to the extremists who have been able to steamroll their opposition and in the process, promote their own intolerance and racism.
In Congresswoman Tlaib’s case, it is her clear dislike for white Trump supporters as well as all Americans who believe in the enforcement of immigration laws as well as the construction of a border wall which is a national security issue that has been misrepresented by the political left as somehow being racist.
TAPPER: “You also said in a statement after the attack that you were angry at those who follow the white supremacy agenda in my own country that sends a signal across a world that massacres like this are some kind of call to action. Who were you specifically talking about?”
TLAIB: “The ones that stay silent and the ones that support the Muslim ban. Not only once, but twice, three times did we in this nation say to the world and to everyone in this country that Muslims don’t belong here. From the fact that every time we talk about a wall, it’s not about a structure, but about xenophobia, it’s about racism. It’s a symbol in so many ways of targeting brown and black people in our country. The fact that we continue to stay silent is what’s going to make us as a country less safe. And I can tell you, it’s not just brown, black people speaking up, it’s also white Americans across this country that are very distressed and also feel less safe because we’re not speaking up against white nationalism.”
Note that the host didn’t rebut the congresswoman’s false statement about a “Muslim ban” which distorts the president’s reasonable proposal to limit travel from a handful of countries that are hotbeds of terrorism.
Now Tlaib defends Omar’s anti-Semitism by portraying her as the victim as the tepid Tapper lets her get away with it.

Not content to simply exploit the victims of the shooting, she uses her own children as human shields:

It used to be that just calling someone a racist was enough for Democrats, now it has evolved into whoever they disagree with is a “white supremacist” or “Nazi” and this dangerous dishonesty has been sanctioned by the media.
And just as George Orwell wrote in his influential classic Nineteen Eighty-Four, 2+2= 5 which is exactly what Tlaib is suggesting by equating the revulsion of anti-Semitism to Islamophobia.
Sadly but not surprisingly, Tapper let her get away with the sort of disgusting bigotry that CNN has become a forum for in these sick days of fear and loathing and the rise of the totalitarian left.
There will never be a decrease in hatred as long as the media allows the real racists and bigots to get away with this sort of garbage that is, unfortunately, believed by many angry and gullible people looking for someone else to blame for their failings.
