CBS News ran a story Thursday claiming that Washington, D.C firefighters recruits “might” be making a white power gesture- by making the famous ‘OK’ gesture in a class photo.
The story, first “reported” on by a Washington CBS affiliate, makes sensational and borderline defamatory claims about the recruit firefighters.
The CBS reporters dug up an old class photo of the firefighters where one of them was making the innocuous hand symbol. They then proceeded to launch a widely speculative witch hunt against them, reporting the “controversy” to the District of Columbia Fire and Emergency Medical Services.
The municipal agency has now launched an investigation into the recruit firefighters for the fake controversy, raising a specter of a possibility that CBS could ruin careers and lives with their fearmongering and yellow reporting.
The ‘OK’ hand symbol, made by pointing up one’s latter three fingers and holding their thumb and index finger together, has been used by individuals across broad swathes of American society for decades, including notorious liberals such as Barack Obama and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
A similar controversy was promptly shut down in December, when verified liberals tried to claim that West Point cadets were white supremacists for playing the “circle game” at an Army-Navy game. An investigation into the cadets vindicated them from the slanderous claims of elite media liberals.
Mainstream media operatives love nothing more than picking on easy targets with bogus, sensational accusations, using the playbook from infamous hate hoaxes such as the Covington Catholic incident with regularity. But the shutdown of the recent West Point hoax demonstrates the elite institutions the liberal media relies on for credibility may be tiring of their lies, leaving fake news purveyors such as CBS completely powerless in their endless quest to gin up fake controversies targeting American patriots.
CNN Pretty Boy Don Lemon Lumps All Trump Voters Together with Klansmen and Neo-Nazis in Vicious Rant
How on earth does this man have his own TV show?
On CNN Wednesday night, Don Lemon disparaged every single Trump voter by saying that they’re part of the same crowd as Klansmen and neo-Nazis.
In the transition from his show to Lemon’s, Chris Cuomo posed to Lemon a devil’s advocate position that “you can’t say everybody who voted for Trump is like the people who who went into the Capitol.” Lemon responded thus:
“If you are on that side, you need to think about the side you’re on. I’m never on the side of the Klan. Principled people, conservative or liberal, never on the Klan side. Principled people, conservative or liberal, never on the Nazi side. Principled people who are conservative or liberal, never on the side that treats their fellow Americans as ‘less than,’ that says that your fellow Americans should not exist, that says your fellow Americans should be in a concentration camp, or that sides with slavery, or sides with any sort of bigotry.”
Cuomo jumps in to continue playing devil’s advocate: “And if they say, ‘I don’t agree with those people, I just like Trump’s policies’?”
“Then get out the crowd with them,” Lemon says. “Get out of the crowd.”
Cuomo then retorts, again pretending to represent the other side: “‘I wasn’t in the crowd, I just voted for Trump.'”
Lemon replied: “You’re in the crowd who voted for Trump. If you voted for Trump, you voted for the person who the Klan supported. You voted for the person who Nazis support. You voted for the person who the alt-right supports. That’s the crowd you are in. You voted for the person who incited a crowd to go into the Capitol and potentially take the lives of lawmakers, took the lives of police officers, took the innocent lives who were there on the Capitol that day. You voted on that side. And the people in Washington are continuing to vote on that side.”
Quite the incoherent rant, don’t you think? For one, Klansmen and neo-Nazis are by and large not Trump supporters. Even if some were at one point, they were among the quickest to turn on Trump, for they realized that he was not and was never going to be Hitler 2.0. Plus, none of those who breached the Capitol were found to be members of the Klan or a neo-Nazi group. So there goes the thrust of Lemon’s argument.
Lemon also claims, without evidence, that Trump “incited” violence and encouraged his supporters to breach the Capitol. Even if you disapprove of Trump’s rhetoric, you cannot admit in good faith that he incited or encouraged any illegal activity.
Someone like Lemon should not be on TV. He is extraordinarily divisive and full of contempt for 75 million Americans.
