CNN Journos Are Throwing a Fit About a Trump Administration Official’s Pro-Western Civilization Comments
On June 29, 2020, writers Andrew Kaczynski and Nathan McDermott penned an op-ed at CNN attacking Merritt Corrigan, a deputy White House liaison at the US Agency for International Development, for some of the tweets she made between 2019 and 2020.
They claimed that she “has a history of inflammatory rhetoric aimed at refugees, the LGBTQ community and women.” CNN’s KFile analyzed several of the tweets from Corrigan’s account, “which were captured by the Internet Archive’s Wayback Machine.”
Corrigan was previously employed at Hungary’s Embassy in the U.S.where she tweeted in support of nationalist Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban on multiple occasions. She described him as “the shining champion of Western civilization,” according to ProPublica, which covered a number of Corrigan’s tweets on June 5.
Corrigan was also attacked for some of her anti-mass migration tweets. “Mass deportations when?,” Corrigan tweeted back in October 2019, linking to a 2010 article in which German Chancellor Angela Merkel declared that Germany’s multicultural experiment was a failure.
Corrigan also questioned radical feminist narratives, which bothered the hall monitors in the mainstream media. She was singled out in particular over a comment that she made in response to Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren’s statement in support of homosexual marriage during a Democratic presidential townhall.
“This sick statement by Warren, which glibly mocks a real crisis happening in our society, is exactly why women shouldn’t be in office. They will always advocate for themselves at the expense of men, and revel in it,” she tweeted back in October 2019.
In another tweet from that same month, Corrigan bashed conservative radio host Michael Knowles for sharing a picture of himself with a drag queen.
“Right wing gatekeepers have made it abundantly clear that their allegiance is to Satan and those who carry out his agenda of appalling sexual perversion over those who question the liberal status quo,” Corrigan tweeted.
It’s funny how outlets like CNN will obsess over people’s social media history, while turning a blind eye to journalists on the Left like the Washington Post’s global opinions editor Karen Attiah who recently declared that “White women are lucky that we are just calling them ‘Karen’s.’ And not calling for revenge,” in a tweet she quickly deleted.
CNN would be better served by actually reporting on the news and doing real journalism.
But that that might be too much to ask from a purveyor of Fake News like CNN which is more interested in perpetuating political correctness and distorting political developments to fit their globalist agenda.
