CNN Columnist: Term ‘Patriot’ Has ‘Racist Overtones’

Published

A CNN columnist has now decided that the word “patriot” is out of bounds because it has “racist overtones.”

“The US is preparing to send 5,000 troops to the border. It is called “Operation Faithful Patriot.” Why does everything tagged “patriot” or “freedom” seem tainted with racist overtones?” Carol Costello asked on Twitter.

Once again, CNN is beating the “racist” drum. It is now impossible to have a civilized conversation about American immigration policy – let alone oppose illegal immigration –  without some elitist snob in cable news crying “racism.” But this is a new low.

Patriotism is something that Americans used to be able to hold with pride. Now, CNN is shaming people who hold that trait as “racists.” Since when did “patriot” become a dirty word? Do the New England Patriots of the National Football League have to change their nickname?

To answer Costello’s question, everything “tagged patriot” has “racist overtones” because the hucksters at CNN and other cable news outlets are more than happy to make a buck off of driving racial division in America. It is an epidemic of greed as bad, if not worse, than any greed on Wall Street that the political left constantly bemoans.

Greed in the banking industry may affect Americans’ wallets, but greed in the news industry is literally tearing the fabric of this nation apart. Race-baiting for money is out of hand, and CNN ought to be appalled that it has devolved into peddling this smut.

Media Lied: President Trump Did Not Claim Operation Desert Storm Occurred During the Vietnam War

The corporate media has been peddling an edited clip.

Published

The mainstream media falsely reported that President Donald Trump confused the setting of ‘Operation Desert Storm,’ a military name for the 1990 Gulf War, during a July 4th speech on the White House lawn on Sunday. The media accused President Trump of falsely stating that Desert Storm was a military operation that took place during the Vietnam War.

Liberals associated with political organizations such as the Lincoln Project and media groups such as PoliticusUSA displayed edited video clips and made dishonest claims that the President had conflated Operation Desert Storm and the Vietnam war, hoping to score a partisan political point.

In contrast to the claims of partisan liberals, President Trump clearly drew a distinction between combat operations in Vietnam and in Kuwait in 1990, having referred to the events in successive fashion.

Other mainstream media pundits and journalists shared claims that Trump had made the mistake, going on to delete their false claims after the erroneous nature of the claim became apparent on social media. Twitter ultimately ended up labeling the claims that the President conflated the two as “manipulated media,” possibly hoping to score credibility with conservatives by executing the bare minimum of content moderation as the platform rampantly censors the free speech of President Trump, conservatives, and right-wingers.

A reporter from MSNBC is yet to delete her tweet falsely accusing the President of confusing Desert Storm and Vietnam, even after the clip she originally retweeted has been delete in acknowledgment of its dishonesty.

These are some very dishonest people, folks.
