CNN “media reporter” Brian Stelter Wednesday accused President Donald Trump of leading a “hate movement” against establishment press reporters and commentators (if they any longer pretend to draw that distinction.)
Discussing the Trump supporters who heckled CNN reporter Jim Acosta on Tuesday evening before Trump’s rally in Tampa, Florida, Stelter told CNN’s Hala Gorani, “I think what we are increasingly seeing from the president and his aides and his allies is a hate movement against the American press.”
“When you look at the behavior around Jim Acosta and some of the other reporter at these rallies, you really do see a hate movement,” he insisted.
Stelter said Trump is not just telling his supporters to ignore or not believe the legacy media. Instead, Stelter claimed, Trump’s “really telling people to hate journalists. He’s telling people that journalists are the enemy — literally the enemies of the people.”
“He’s treating the press corps as his opponent because it’s convenient and creates a perceived enemy for him to attack,” Stelter said. “That really is a hate movement and the results are what we see at these rallies. And because he’s holding rallies more and more often, we are seeing it more and more often.”
Um . . . seeing what? All the political violence in America, starting with the Soros-funded, screeching “Not my President!” so-called “Antifa” arson-and-demolition riots the week after the 2016 election, has been coming from the LEFT. Steve Scalise was shot and seriously injured by a DEMOCRAT gunman who checked before opening fire to make sure everyone on that baseball field was a REPUBLICAN.
(See: “542 Acts of Media-Approved Violence and Harassment Against Trump Supporters,” at https://www.breitbart.com/big-journalism/2018/07/05/rap-sheet-acts-of-media-approved-violence-and-harassment-against-trump-supporters/ .)
And Republican Scalise, barely recovered from the serious injuries sustained in that assassination attempt by a Democrat activist, is STILL getting death threats from Democrats. (See http://dailycaller.com/2018/08/02/steve-scalise-assassination-threats/ .)
Besides, do these simpering, coddled, six-figure-salary “media stars” think freedom of speech is a privilege granted only to them — not a right enjoyed by those who are finally ready to point out (maybe even by booing!) the harm their ridiculous, conspiracy-minded, get-Trump-at-any-cost contortions and duplicity are doing that part of the electorate who foolishly still rely on them for “the news”?
Note what’s missing from their sanctimonious whining. Do you hear them saying, “Why, we’re not one-sided, at all! — Just last week we ran a big expose on what a crooked prosecutor Robert Mueller is, pointing out the innocent men who rotted in jail thanks to his handling of the Whitey Bulger case”? Or “After all, we’ve spent scores of hours on-air, detailing how fraudulent the Carter Page FISA application was — that it essentially allowed and justified the Obama/Hillary camp to wiretap every phone and office of the Trump campaign, all based on ridiculous, salacious third-hand rumors bought and paid for by Miss Hillary — at which point we editorialized that this sounds like something out of a totalitarian state, that every FBI agent involved should go to prison for 20 years”?
Or, “Just a few days ago, we ran an hour-long special on everyone Bill Clinton ever raped or coerced into giving him a blowjob, how Hillary helped attack those women as “lying bimbos,” and how much worse those incidents were than these unsubstantiated claims that Donald Trump “bumped” somebody in a public space, or had consensual sex with a pretty woman, 20 years ago.”
No? You somehow missed their evidence that they’re struggling to be “fair, balanced, and even-handed?”
But they’re sure quick enough to criticize any journalist being allowed to ask a question at a news conference if he or she isn’t part of their Old Boys’ Club! (See: http://dailycaller.com/2018/06/07/media-meltdown-trump-daily-caller/ .)
What about Hillary Clinton’s smarmy little memorized, leering-grandma speech during the third debate (October, 2016) that “That is not the way our democracy works. We’ve been around for 240 years. We have had free and fair elections. We’ve accepted the outcomes when we may not have liked them.” (See https://www.cnn.com/2016/10/19/politics/presidential-debate-highlights/index.html . or http://time.com/4538117/presidential-debate-hillary-clinton-gaggle/ )
Is it only REPUBLICANS who have to accept defeat with good grace, “accept the outcomes when we may not have liked them,” and wonder where their messaging went wrong? Democrats, on the other hand, are free to pursue the narrative that the Republican who beat them fair and square — capturing so many states the Democrats couldn’t even “send in the lawyers” to “count the hanging chads” — is “illegitimate,” should have been impeached BEFORE HE EVEN TOOK OFFICE, because, because . . . someone in Lithuania or outer Kazakhstan set up some hoax Facebook accounts, which even Barack Obama declared COULD NOT HAVE HAD THE SLIGHTEST EFFECT ON OUR VOTE COUNT? ( see . . . http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2018/02/20/trump-turns-obama-quote-on-election-rigging-against-him-in-russia-debate.html .)
CNN political analyst David Gergen then doubled down on Wednesday evening, whimpering that blood will be on President Donald Trump’s hands if there is any violence committed against mainstream media reporters.
Speaking to host Anderson Cooper about Trump supporters who heckled and chanted “CNN sucks” at CNN reporter Jim Acosta before Trump’s Tuesday evening rally in Tampa, Gergen accused Trump of using “Stalinist” language when he calls left-wing journalists in the establishment media “enemies of the people.”
“If you put that together, which has a mob quality to it, and the culture of gun violence, that is a very combustible mix,” Gergen said. “What we saw last night and what we saw frequently at Sarah Palin rallies way back when. If there is violence against any reporter that’s tied to this, the blood is going to be on his hands.”
IT’S ALL LIES, 24/7
And so . . . when there are more violent attacks on Republican office-holders (as there will be — communists ALWAYS resort to violence), will these guys accept the blame for the vicious, fact-challenged, non-stop “Hate Trump” campaign they’ve now been running for more than two years? If — God forbid — someone attempts to kill President Trump or some member of his cabinet or immediate family, will these guys blame the so-called “journalists” who have been peddling an alternative reality, claiming Trump is a would-be Hitler?
I don’t think so.
President Trump has shown an admirable — sometimes even a frustrating — respect for the Constitution and its separation of powers, patiently waiting for the absurd obstructions by far-left lower-court judges of his perfectly lawful executive orders to work their way up through the appeals process . . . as opposed to Crooked Hillary (who broke all kinds of laws in order to accept hundreds of millions in bribes through the so called “Clinton Foundation” in exchange for selling Russia 20 percent of our uranium (and then to cover that up — hence the illegal private email server for official State Department business, and the 33,000 deleted emails that turned up on the Weiner laptop that the FBI never even examined — https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2018/08/03/fbi-vault-release-fbi-requested-data-forensics-on-huma-abedin-clinton-laptop-after-the-2016-election-not-before/ ) . . .
. . . while “Clinton Foundation” moneys did more to help Clinton relatives than actual Haitians after the big earthquake there (see https://www.gop.com/how-the-clintons-hurt-haiti/ ) . . .
. . . and as opposed to BOTH Barack Obama and Bill Clinton, who simply did end-runs around any Congress that tried to block their plans, signing “executive orders” and pretending those could properly substitute for duly debated and enacted legislation or treaty ratifications.
Yet the Yellowstream Media that now whines Trump isn’t allowed to criticize them have spent years, 24/7, carefully keeping their viewers and readers in the dark about the positive, pro-American, multi-racial atmosphere at any typical Trump rally, instead selecting tiny, deceptive sound bytes coupled with outright lies to try and convince the American public that Donald Trump is a clown, a buffoon, a dangerous warmonger (for refusing to start a war with Russia, mind you), and a homosexual who takes off his clothes and kneels down doggy-style to allow Russia’s Vladimir Putin to have his way with our President’s backside at every opportunity (Yes, late-night “comedian” Stephen Colbert on May 1, 2017, actually stated our President is Vladimir’s Putin’s “cock-holster” (see . . . https://deadline.com/2017/05/stephen-colbert-donald-trump-fcc-no-fine-mouth-cock-holster-monologue-1202101084/ ) . . .
. . . when Donald Trump isn’t hiring Russian whores to pee on his bed, mind you.
Yes, the Yellowstream Media is STILL peddling their absurd, made-up narrative — initially funded by the Hillary Clinton Presidential campaign through a shady outfit known as “GPS Fusion” — that Donald Trump once hired a bunch of Russian prostitutes to pee on his hotel-room bed.
So — once and for all, guys — now that you’ve had two years and multiple billions of dollars from Soros and the Koch Brothers and the globalist Wall Street gang to investigate that claim — what were the full names and ages of those prostitutes? On What date and during what specific hours were those particular prostitutes in Donald Trump’s Moscow hotel room? And what is the name and age and address of the witness who claims he or she saw this, so we can go interview them? Come on. Give us ONE OR TWO verifiable (or refutable — aye, there’s the rub) facts, details about that event. We’re waiting . . . waiting. Bob Mueller and company have had two years. Waiting . . .
OVER? THE WAR IS ABOUT TO BEGIN
I’ll tell you what’s going on, here. If the Russians had had the ability to help any American presidential candidate in 2016, they obviously would have helped HILLARY, whose official favors they already knew could be bought for a paltry $145 million in cash, without regard to how much such treason might hurt America. Trump, on the other hand, was a dangerous unknown, an American patriot with scary negotiating skills, a billionaire who wanted a strong military, who’d increase American fossil fuel production (which Hillary’s “green” regulations would continue to strangle) to compete with Mother Russia’s cash cow and who’d never shown he could be bought or backed down with ANY amount of cash or tough talk.
No, what’s going on here is that for almost 50 years our increasingly radical, leftist mainstream newsrooms — Yes, I mean at 98 percent of America’s television networks and daily newspapers, including those of the papers I’ve worked at — have covered up for the foibles, the misdeeds, the missteps, the downright felonies of people like plagiarist and child-handler Joe Biden, always-for-sale Hillary Clinton, her serial sexual molester (and probable rapist) husband bill, that champ of the casting couch Harvey Weinstein, and all the rest of the socialist Left. Meantime, they turn their “investigative ire” on smaller-government conservatives and conservatives only — making up stuff if they can’t find any real evidence of dirty dealing.
(Remember the high school yearbook where Alabama Senate candidate Judge Roy Moore’s signature “proved” he’d tried to kiss a 17-year-old waitress decades ago . . . only the now-superannuated waitress finally had to admit on TV that she forged part of the inscription? The Yellowstream Press STILL uses that Gloria Allred hit-and-run fantabulation to brand Moore — a Vietnam veteran with years of dedicated public service behind him, but anathema to the Left because he’s a happily married practicing Christian who insisted on displaying the Ten Commandments at his courthouse — a “child molester” at every opportunity.)
For going on 50 years, the expected — the only acceptable — response of a Republican president has been to shuffle a foot in the dirt, lower his head as he turns red in embarrassment, and whine, “Aw shucks, I don’t think I did anything THAT bad, fellas.”
When they’re allowed to say anything, at all.
But now, for the first time in 50 years, they encounter a conservative office-holder who won’t play the game by those rules — who refuses to crawl off in the corner, turn over on his back, and pee himself in embarrassment while pleading with them to “Stop, stop, OK, I’ll sign your trans-gender funding bill, I’ll grant amnesty to all your MS-13 rapists, I’ll let them build a mosque at Ground Zero, only stop, please stop calling me names!”
Instead, Donald Trump gives as good as he gets. He counter-attacks. He fires back. He calls a spade a spade — a liar a liar.
And his popularity ratings go UP! To 48 percent in their polls! (Meaning 60 percent really, since they count disgusted Trump supporters who hang up on them as “undecided.”)
And they can’t STAND it.
But here’s the good part: Rob Reiner, son of Carl Reiner (who had the benefit, in the comedy line, of being largely non-political and thus frequently actually funny) — the younger Reiner, the guy who was clearly typecast to play “Meathead” to Carol O’Connor’s Archie Bunker — said the other day that because Trump doesn’t merely cower and cover his head with his arms and allow the media to piss all over him, the way they pissed all over Mitt Romney and John McCain and George W. Bush, et cetera — and because Trump keeps calling for enforcing our immigration laws and deporting illegal aliens (which of course makes him as bad a racist as all those antebellum, slave-owning, um . . . Democrats), “we’re in right now, it might be the last stage of a civil war, the last battle is being fought. Hopefully it won’t be fought physically, but we are more divided than we ever have been.”
But here’s the thing, Rob. It’s not “the last battle of a civil war.” It’s the first.
Your side — the lying, globalist totalitarians intent on turning America into a Third-World “Service-Economy” hellhole — have had it all their way for 50 years. Just as King George assumed the American colonists would remain civil and peaceable while enduring his escalating insults and economic restrictions and tyrannies INDEFINITELY, that we’d ALWAYS settle for writing a “firm letter of protest,” so you’ve grown accustomed to the vast American majority who live between Wheeling and Sacramento shrugging and saying, “These bi-coastal folks sure are increasingly loony, but maybe it’s just a passing phase. Let’s get on with our lives.”
But here’s what the lying scum have yet to get their minds around: Donald Trump’s first election in 2016 — along with the Brexit vote in Britain and now the escape of Italy and Hungary and possibly Poland from the globalist plot to turn Europe into a Muslim enclave — mark the BEGINNING of the pendulum swinging back the other way.
This is your country. This is your country on Trump. And lots of folks who didn’t bother to vote for Trump in 2016 (the counties of the ones who did are marked in red, above) because the lying pollsters convinced them he couldn’t win, WILL flock to take their last two chances to endorse Trump’s common-sense, patriotic agenda in 2018 and 2020. Watch them.
The Republicans are going to GAIN seats in Congress in 2018 — even as the worst of the RINOS flee down the mooring ropes. Donald Trump — if he can avoid being shot by one of you communists, or at least survive like Steve Scalise and Ron Paul — will end up appointing FOUR Supreme Court justices (if not five.) And Democrats in 2020 will come face-to-face with the same reality Republicans had to confront after they thought the incompetent dilettante Franklin Roosevelt would go down to an easy defeat in 1936, only to have their clocks cleaned, to find themselves wandering in the wilderness for 20 years, wondering “What happened?”
Running on outright gun bans, open borders, unlimited illegal immigration by illiterate Third World criminals and cretins, abolishing (or it is now “prosecuting”?) hard-working American Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents, accepting millions of Muslim “refugees” who want to practice honor killing and Female Genital Mutilation and build mosques on our town greens and make us all bend to the will of Sharia Law (see . . . http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6018133/Landmark-ruling-sees-British-court-recognise-sharia-law-time.html ) — not to mention shooting up children aged 12 and younger with opposite-sex hormones so they grow up with no gender or reproductive ability, at all (but at least they won’t be promoting “male privilege” any more!) . . .
. . . is going to get their candidates elected in San Francisco and Berkeley, in Cambridge, Massachusetts (which gave us Fauxcahontas Warren), in Greenwich Village (where The New York Times just hired an editorial writer who contends white people are “only fit to live underground like groveling goblins” — see . . . http://dailycaller.com/2018/08/02/new-york-times-sarah-jeong-racist/ . . . and THAT’S IT.
It’s such a joy to finally see it and say it. The smug, arrogant, redistributionist Left took over the college campuses in the ’60s and ’70s, Hollywood and the media in the ’80s and ’90s. The brand of left-wing activism still absurdly called “Liberalism” (since its intolerance of real “diversity” of thought or behavior is more visible every day) can claim some legitimate accomplishments in the early years of its ascendancy — progress on racial equality, an end to jailing consenting adult homosexuals merely for their private preferences. All well and good. Indeed, things to be proud of.
But they couldn’t settle for modest, reasonable gains — increased tolerance for gays, equal workplace opportunity on a level playing field for women and racial minorities.
NOOO. They couldn’t be satisfied with the too-slow mechanisms of reasoned debate and change of popular opinion. Instead, no compelled compromise was ever permanent, ever seen as anything but a partial step — “We’ll settle for gun-sale background checks” lasted only until the next shooting committed by some kid wacked out on a prescribed psychoactive drug, at which point there were suddenly new demands for gun and magazine bans, including a requirement for micro-stamping of cartridges in ways which the California courts have now ruled are technically impossible and thus de facto ban all firearm sales . . . but which the same court holds HAVE TO BE ENFORCED, ANYWAY! (See . . . https://www.breitbart.com/california/2018/06/28/ca-supreme-court-upholds-impossible-gun-control-law/ , . . . or . . . https://www.nraila.org/articles/20180703/mission-impossible-california-court-upholds-microstamping-law .)
They had to use the manipulative, disruptive, totally cynical coercive tactics of Hitler’s brownshirts or communists like Saul Alinsky to impose same-sex marriage and other minority demands via judicial edict, their demands never satisfied, only escalating as they were cheered on by each coercive victory until they were finally willing to admit they sought nothing less than the utter destruction of traditional American, Judeo-Christian families and values — to insult, denigrate, shame, and eventually eliminate moderate, gun-owning, heterosexual white people, entirely.
They may never acknowledge it, but the current volume of their shrieking and heel-pounding indicates they’re finally starting to realize: They failed. Their sleepy victims have finally awakened to the piles of feces and used hypodermics littering the sidewalks.

Their “gun-free paradises” of Chicago and London are now the murder capitals of the civilized world. The tide has turned. The Privileged Leftist Elite now stand on the shore, watching the waters RECEDE, leaving a bunch of little fish flopping in the mud, unwilling to acknowledge what anyone who’s ever lived through one could tell them that means.
