Former AZ Governor Jan Brewer Defends Trump’s Charlottesville Remarks, Faces Vicious Backlash

By now, you know the routine: Defend Trump. Get called a racist.

Leftards have nothing left but character assassination.

AZ Central

Former Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer, in an appearance on CNN Tuesday evening, defended President Donald Trump’s contention Tuesday that many of those who opposed the white-supremacist groups staging a rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, on Saturday are equally to blame for the violence that erupted during the event.

Brewer, who supported Trump’s presidential run, was asked by CNN host Don Lemon whether she was ashamed by the president’s comments made at a press conference Tuesday, where he doubled down on his initial remarks suggesting that counterprotesters who stood up to the racist groups were equally responsible for the violence that unfolded.

“No. Absolutely not. I was not ashamed. I think he took the bull by the horns, he spoke from his heart,’’ she said on the nationally televised broadcast.

“He has denounced the Ku Klux Klan and the neo-Nazis. He has done it over and over, and David Duke. But you keep reporting he hasn’t done it,’’ she said.

When Lemon suggested that Trump only named the groups in a prepared statement Monday “under duress’’ after major fallout from his initial response on Saturday, Brewer said there was nothing wrong with what he said in his first statement.

“I thought his speech on Saturday was fine. I thought the one on Monday was terrific. I thought today he came forward and spoke from his heart. He doesn’t want this. We need to bring our country together.’’

She denounced the KKK and described what happened in Charlottesville as “horrible,’’ but then added, “The fact of the matter is, there were groups there to the far left, and to the far right.’’

Brewer appeared with CNN political commentator and Republican Ana Navarro, who angrily ripped Trump for his remarks and Republicans who had been hesitant to criticize him until now, while lashing out at those who continue to defend him.

“I think that Trump apologists are going to justify and pretend that things he says, and that they’re seeing him say, did not happen,’’ Navarro said.

“To my party, to the Republicans who are speaking out today, my question is, ‘What the hell took you so long?’ When someone shows you who they are the first time, believe them.’’

Republican U.S. Sens. John McCain and Jeff Flake of Arizona both denounced the white-supremacist groups after Saturday’s violent protest along with any effort to equate the two sides.

Lemon then showed a clip of Trump’s controversial statement during his presidential campaign in which he said Mexico sends mostly “rapists’’ and other criminal elements into the United States.

Brewer responded by defending that statement as well, saying, “As a (former) border governor, we know that we’re not getting the best of what Mexico can send us. We know the drug cartels are down there. We know the rapists are coming across, and then they go to sanctuary cities, and then they head back, and then they come back here again. This is America. American people ought to be protected also.’’

Pressed again by Lemon on Trump’s remarks about the Charlottesville violence, Brewer said: “From everything I heard, I don’t have a problem with it.”

Vapid, idiotic nonsense is the order of the night on Twitter this early Wednesday A.M. This nonsense is one of the top trends on Twitter.

CNN Fires Conservative Pundit Over Mocking “Sieg Heil” Comment Aimed at Liberal Censors

CNN has proved once again that the Communist News Network has no sense of proportion or of righteousness.

One of their few conservative commentators, Jeff Lord, has been fired for the Twitter exchange you see above.

When you go to work for CNN, you’re making a deal with the devil, who has a way of turning on you.

BBC

CNN has parted company with a conservative commentator after he tweeted a Nazi salute at a prominent liberal critic.

Jeffrey Lord tweeted “Sieg Heil” in response to an exchange with the head of Media Matters for America.

He later said his comment had been misunderstood and that he was mocking fascists.

A CNN spokesperson said in a statement: “Nazi salutes are indefensible. Jeffrey Lord is no longer with the network.”

CNN described Mr Lord as one of its best known commentators and the first explicitly pro-Trump commentator to join the network.

Mr Lord has regularly sparred with Angelo Carusone, president of Media Matters for America.

Things came to a head on Thursday when Mr Lord tweeted at Mr Carusone, linking to a column he had written describing the group as “Media Matters Fascists, the anti-free speech bigots”.

Mr Carusone, whose name had been misspelt as “Corusone” in the headline, responded: “Your headline has a mistake in it. Why do you expect anyone to take you seriously when you don’t take yourself seriously.”

Mr Lord responded with: “Sieg Heil!”

He later defended his actions, saying he was mocking Nazis and fascists, and criticised CNN’s decision to sever ties with him.

“I feel they are caving to bullies here,” he said in a telephone interview.

First they came for MILO, but I was not a faggot and so I remained silent. Then, … blah, blah, blah.

Someone like Jeff Lord needs to be engaged in a Twitter war to show his street cred. But if he and other conservatives say anything meaningful, then they’re crucified.

It’s lose-lose.

One more thing. I wish these damn cuckservatives would stop comparing the left to Nazis. The left are communists. It’s a misrepresentation of history to break out the tired old Nazi stuff when battling the left.

JEFF LORD, FORMERLY WITH CNN.

This is CNN (Mark Dice Compilation Video)

In three and a half minutes, Mark shows you some of the “highlights” that have made CNN the laughingstock of news.

CNN has tried to have this video removed from the Internet.

From the youtube information box:

Published on Jul 14, 2017

CNN’s epic fails keep getting worse, and their channel has become almost impossible to distinguish from an SNL skit. Here are just a few of the most recent examples.

Styx gives a full report on Mark’s troubles with CNN as a result of the video above. He explains a number of issues relating to media today better than anyone else I’ve seen.

Poor Styx. Can’t he afford a shirt???!!! Less than 22 minutes.

Troll BG Kumbi: I Own the National Media Now!

There seems to be a massive amount of confusion among the alt-right about whether BG Kumbi (not his real name) is a troll or a real antifa leader.

Andrew Anglin at the Daily Stormer had proclaimed him a troll, but has done a 180 and now proclaims him as a true antifa leader.

Comments at Zerohedge are all over the place regarding how real Kumbi’s desire to “smash the fash” really is.

Below are the two videos that are creating a stir among the alt-right and alt-light. Even Eric Trump has allegedly Tweeted that the kid is a real antifa, believing in racist horses.

Watch! About 10 minutes total. Observe the photo of Karl Marx in the background and the bottle of lotion next to it.

Look at what a racist Trump supporter did to Kumbi’s window! LOL! Fake!

Following “America First” G-20 Appearance, Press Doubles Down on Stopping Trump at All Costs

During the G20 meetings in Hamburg, Germany on Friday and Saturday, you may have noticed that American president Donald Trump was wearing an American flag lapel pin, unlike other world leaders who wore a special G20 pin. His pin truly did put America First. See the Daily Mail for more details.

Since the G20 meetings ended on Saturday, I’ve observed a big uptick in negative stories that feature Trump in a bad light.

For about 36 hours there was a bit of a moratorium on Trump bashing, probably because there was nothing but positive news coming out of Hamburg related to Trump.

All of this has abruptly changed. A Guardian headline offers an example: Australian journalist demolishes Trump at G20: ‘biggest threat to the west’.

While there are too many to go through, among the biggest negative stories out in the last few hours:

1. How dare Ivanka Trump sit in briefly for the president at a G20 confab?
2. Did former KGB agent Vladimir Putin get the better of Trump in their meeting?
3. Team Trump met with a Russian lawyer during the campaign.

All of this should be recognized as nonsense. It’s nothing but Trump hating reporters writing fake news in order to meet an editor’s deadline to come up with a story.

It’s not clear as of this writing, but we may get a new firestorm of liberal protest as Donald Trump, Jr. has retweeted a video of the President in a fighter jet shooting down another fighter labeled CNN.

Here’s the retweet:

Don Jr. also posted it on his Instagram page.

The Daily Mail is covering the fighter jet meme story under the headline “Meme War-round two.”

You have to wonder if this footage from the movie Top Gun will cause CNN to accuse Trump of threatening to crash reporter’s planes.

By the way, I don’t recall, but is that a Russian jet that is being shot down in the film?

One more thing. Watch what racist Trump does to help a black man.

Woman Professor Claims Alt-Right Memes Dangerous to Democracy

A woman professor, Sophia A. McClennen, laments the legacy media’s loss of its monopoly on the production of propaganda.

She claims that alt-right Internet memes, such as the Trump Tweet showing him body slamming CNN, are dangerous. That’s pseudointellectual nonsense coming from a woman professor who will probably receive a raise and promotion for writing this shallow piece.

I’ve excerpted about a third of it.

Excerpt from Salon

Forget fake news — alt-right memes could do more damage to democracy

As BuzzFeed notes, there is “a sprawling new universe of far-right internet personalities who have aligned themselves with a ‘new right’ or ‘alt-right’ or ‘new far-right’ political youth movement in the US.” This group is interested in moving their trolling into the real world.

Whether on Reddit or YouTube or another form of social media these alt-right rants share a few key beliefs. As Malia Rolt explains in a piece on YouTube and the alt-right, those posting right-wing hate speech “all believe that the media is untrustworthy and political correctness has gone too far, and see advocacy for equality for all as a threat to freedom of speech.”

The issue of freedom of speech and social media, of course, is a tricky issue since all of the platforms have rules and restrictions over the sort of content they allow. And yet, there is some evidence to suggest that the application of those rules may indeed favor aggressive speech by the right more than from other quarters.

For instance, a report from ProPublica suggests that Facebook’s internal rules for censoring hate speech is biased to favor both the right and celebrity users. In contrast, “Facebook users who don’t mince words in criticizing racism and police killings of racial minorities say that their posts are often taken down.”

They compare two posts. One by a U.S. congressman who wrote a post after a terrorist attack in London that called for the slaughter of “radicalized” Muslims. “Hunt them, identify them, and kill them,” declared U.S. Rep. Clay Higgins, a Louisiana Republican. “Kill them all. For the sake of all that is good and righteous. Kill them all.” And one by Boston poet and Black Lives Matter activist DiDi Delgado: “All white people are racist. Start from this reference point, or you’ve already failed.”

Delgado’s post was removed and her Facebook account was disabled for seven days. Higgins’ post was untouched. Such practices certainly suggest deep political biases in the ways that Facebook censors users.

All of this combines to suggest that, while each social media platform has a different identity and different content rules, there is increasing evidence that right-wing hate speech is growing in power and force across the major social media platforms and into everyday life.

What this week’s Trump Twitter war against the mainstream news media teaches us is that CNN should be worried — but not about Trump’s attacks, rather about the fact that an increasing number of U.S. citizens are forming their political ideas based on alt-right rants, and not on anything that even remotely resembles information.

Microchip has been banned from Twitter over 100 times. He’s far from alone. Recall that MILO was permanently banned and has never come back. Microchip gets back on via trickery until Twitter discovers he’s back, when they ban him again.

The point is that the rules do not favor the alt-right. Another point is that the media is obviously not trustworthy.

McClennan’s essay starts with the wrong premise. The only way to break the media monopoly is through alternative media, citizen journalism, taking matters one Tweet, comment, and blog post at a time.

The “fake news” phrase has come into widespread use for a reason and if the professor doesn’t acknowledge that, she’s either stupid or lying.

LOOKS LIKE PROFESSOR MCCLENNEN WAS A BERNIE SUPPORTER.

Limbaugh: CNN Has Become A Laughing Stock And Doesn’t Know It

El Rushbo may not be alt-right but he does understand a goodly number of political currents swirling around in America. On Wednesday he called out CNN as a laughingstock, after the network threatened to reveal personal information about the person who created the now infamous video of Trump body slamming CNN.

On Thursday, President Duda of Poland Tweeted out a “fake news” Tweet. On Friday, at the G20 meeting, President Putin of Russia mocked the press too.

Real Clear Politics

Rush Limbaugh talks CNN on the Thursday edition of his nationally-syndicated radio show:

RUSH LIMBAUGH: And so today Jim Acosta accused Trump of engaging in fake news. The definition of fake news at CNN is if Trump takes a question from a conservative reporter, a friendly reporter. That is fake news. Acosta actually tweeted, “Isn’t it a fake news conference to take a question from a reporter who is essentially an ally of the White House.”

Now, in order to understand what comes next, you have to understand who Acosta is. He’s like everybody else in Washington. These are pseudointellectuals. You must understand the way they see themselves. They see themselves as better, smarter, more important, more relevant, more necessary, just generally better people than all the rest of us. They have no humility whatsoever. They do not know what they don’t know.

They have no capability of humility. They have no ability to admit that there are things that they don’t know. As such they are ripe to be made fools of. And this Acosta guy is basically putting his own bag of manure in front of himself and stepping in it every day. Trump is just assisting a little bit, but he’s not even collecting the manure. CNN’s doing that. Trump may be furnishing the bag, but these people are putting it in front of themselves and then stepping in it.

So Acosta tweets, “Isn’t it a fake news conference to take a question from a reporter who is essentially an ally of the White House?” Donald Trump Jr. responds. “So by that logic, Little Jim, every news conference for the last eight years with Obama was fake news. You would know.” But it isn’t just Donald Trump Jr. Ari Fleischer: “Jim, do you care to guess how many questions I took from reporters who went on to join the Obama White House?” Ari Fleischer was Bush’s first press secretary.

Here’s Acosta saying these conservative reporters, you know, they’re Trump’s allies, they’re supporters of Trump, these conservative people. That means it’s fake news. And Ari Fleischer is pointing out, you know, Jim, how many of your buddies who are in the press corps during the Bush administration then went on to join the actual Obama administration?

The tweets, the memes, the gifs making fun of CNN with Trump savaging them, they’re getting too many to watch, too many to count. CNN has become a laughingstock and doesn’t know it. That’s what’s funny about it. They don’t know it. They’re aware of all of this, but because they have no humility and because they have no sense of their true place in the universe, they are incapable of actually having this register in terms of its reality.

So Trump’s press conference is in Poland — oh, by the way, let me tell you about this. There’s another thing about Poland. The Drive-By Media today, a couple different places, reported that Trump is so unpopular in Poland. This is a flat-out lie. I mean, this is just total flat-out fake news. They reported Trump as so unpopular in Poland that they had to bus in the few supporters in the country they could find that would cheer Trump.

That’s not at all what happened.

Trump is so popular the Polish government had to organize the numbers of people and they sponsored bus trips to facilitate traffic management and logistics and all that. There were so many people that wanted to see Trump that they found a way to bus them in and keep it somewhat organized.
