CNN White House Reporter Has History of Homophobic Tweets

Published

Adding to the list of cable news reporters who have expressed disdain for gay people, homophobic Tweets from CNN’s White House reporter were unearthed Sunday.

“Idk if I wanna room with a lesbian,” said CNN’s Kaitlan Collins in a 2011 Tweet.

“Prologue to Canterbury Tales, you fag,” she said in the same year.

“I get off at 4 fag!” she said in another Tweet.

Responding to the controversy, Collins took to Twitter to apologize.

“When I was in college, I used ignorant language in a few tweets to my friends. It was immature but it doesn’t represent the way I feel at all. I regret it and apologize,” she said.

CNN has not issued a statement on Collins’ Tweets, and likely will sweep them under the rug.

A few months ago MSNBC host Joy Ann Reid’s blog, filled with homophobic rants, made headlines for its despicable content. Reid denied the that she wrote the posts, claimed that she was hacked and filed an FBI report on the alleged hacking. She later admitted to writing the posts and sheepishly apologized. She was not disciplined by MSNBC or the FBI for filing a false report. David Brock and his left-wing operation Media Matters even defended Reid’s homophobia.

Collins’ language might be offensive, but offensive speech is protected under the First Amendment.

Conservatives, though, are pointing out the obvious double-standard applied based on political affiliation. A right-wing reporter who said those words would  likely never live them down, a point which is not lost on many right-wing commentators.

“Kaitlan Collins is a ‘Twitter cop.’ She publicly shames people for old tweets. I am not remotely offended by her old jokes about “f-gs” and Ebola, but anyone at FoxNews would be over,” said right-wing pundit, author and lawyer Mike Cernovich.

As Trump Leaves Office, Media Cites Ineffectiveness of Lockdowns and Democratic Leaders Display Eagerness to Reopen

Right on cue.

Published

on

With President Donald Trump’s impending exit from the White House, many are starting to perceive pivots from Democratic leaders and the mainstream media on the ineffectiveness of lockdowns and the reopening of society.

For example, Newsweek ran an article Thursday titled “COVID Lockdowns May Have No Clear Benefit vs Other Voluntary Measures, International Study Shows.” The study, published in the European Journal of Clinical Investigation, found through a mathematical model that there was “no clear, significant beneficial effect of [more restrictive measures] on [COVID-19] case growth in any country.”

This is just one study, of course, so it may not reflect objective reality any more than one study which concludes that lockdowns saved “millions of lives.” But after getting bombarded with messages from the media that lockdowns were necessary—with the opposite message found only on explicitly conservative outlets like Big League Politics—it may seem too coincidental to see such a story while the changing of the presidential guard takes place.

Not only that, it also comes at a time when some Democratic leaders appear to be chomping at the bit to reopen restaurants, bars, and schools—after several months of harsh insistence that they all must stay closed in the name of “safety” and “public health.”

On Monday, for example, Governor Andrew Cuomo of New York called for the reopening of the state’s economy “smartly and safely.”

“We simply cannot stay closed until the vaccine hits critical mass. The cost is too high. We will have nothing left to open. We must reopen the economy, but we must do it smartly and safely,” Cuomo tweeted.

Mayor of Chicago Lori Lightfoot put out a similar call on Thursday, saying that bars and restaurants need to reopen “as quickly as possible” because it will help those businesses survive and reduce the number of large private parties and gatherings.

And incoming president Joe Biden recently pitched a $175 billion plan to return children to school, $130 billion of which would be for public elementary, middle, and high schools, the other $35 billion for colleges and universities. Many teachers unions stubbornly refused to return to in-person classes for the longest time, but now that Biden has come out in support of in-person classes, don’t be surprised to see them suddenly change their tune.

The left is so predictable, isn’t it?
