Ashton Birdie Whitty, a conservative from Berkeley, California, posted a video of Fox News’ Tucker Carlson interviewing a student who said that CNN scripted questions for their town hall debate on gun violence.
Whitty posted and commented on Carlson’s interview with Colton Haab, a hero who saved lives during the horrific shooting at a high school in Parkland, Florida.
“Well Youtube removed my video. Claiming I was bullying,” Whitty told Big League Politics.
“The entire video was nothing more than my own commentary and reaction to Tucker Carlson’s interview. And the basis of my video was ‘These kids are not actors but CNN is using them to push their own political bias,'” Whitty said, referring to some Parkland students who have spoken out in favor of gun control. “I even made sure to say these kids aren’t actors.”

“Tucker Carlson’s interview was proof that while CNN may not be hiring actors, they are certainly picking and choosing who to represent the tragedy that was the Parkland Florida shooting,” Whitty continued. “They were using scripted questions as Colton Haab said in his interview. I think this only proves that CNN cares little about how to protect these students and more so about their own political agenda. They have gone out of their way to make a few number of students famous while silencing the ones with a different perspective. It’s frustrating as someone who has seen this on college campuses (UC Berkeley for example) to see this in high schools — especially after tragedy.”
“I was only commenting on Tucker Carlson’s interview. I was in no way targeting any group of people. I was commenting on CNN, a corporation, for using these kids’ faces and voices to push their own agenda,” Whitty said.
“And it’s also essential to point out I’m now being censored for saying this, for speaking out against a corporation for using these kids,” Whitty concluded.
Fox News’ version of the interview is still active on Youtube:
Colton Haab, a member of the Junior ROTC program at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School saved lived during last week’s shooting that left 17 people dead. But when he had questions for CNN’s Town Hall with lawmakers about the shooting, CNN refused to let him ask the question, and instead gave him a scripted question. Haab refused to attend the Town Hall for that reason.
During the shooting, when most students were running for cover, Haab jumped into action. Once he assessed the situation and realized what was going on, he began gathering students into a classroom, and he covered them in Kevlar mats that can both hide the students, and slow bullets if shot. Kevlar is a soft material often used in bullet proof vests.
Haab’s actions were heroic, and likely saved lives that day. But despite his heroism, CNN still refused to give him a chance to say what he wanted, and instead wanted to force him read a scripted question.
Rohlfing’s excerpt ends.
In the interest of full disclosure, I, Patrick Howley, worked for Tucker Carlson for years at The Daily Caller. He is an honorable man and an intrepid journalist with an unflagging regard for the truth. For his employees over the years, his show is the primetime TV realization of the amazing potential we saw every day in the office at our treasured editorial meetings. Censorship of his fans and of content featuring Carlson raises questions about the role of moderators on modern social media.
POLL: 72% of Republicans Want Party Leaders Affiliated With Donald Trump’s Policies, Even if Biden Wins
Republicans strongly support Trump’s policies.
New post-election polling reveals that Republican voters want party leaders affiliated with Donald Trump’s “America First” policy vision, even in the event that Joe Biden is ultimately inaugurated as President in January.
The final outcome of the presidential election is still pending litigation in several swing states.
Voter Omnibus’s survey questioned 1,001 national voters on the matter last week, including 465 Republican-aligned voters.
An outright plurality of Republican and Republican-leaning voters want the party to continue with Donald Trump himself as the leader of the party, with 39% of voters expressing such a view.
33% of Republican-aligned voters want the party to continue with new leaders who are more “disciplined.” Combined, these constituencies form a strong majority of 72% in support of the Trump agenda.
A paltry constituency of Republicans desire to see the party return to the Bush/Romney approach of neoconservative globalism, signaling poor prospects for liberal conservatives to regain control of the Republican party.
Republicans are far more concerned that weak Republicans won’t fight against Democrats or abandon Trump’s “America First” policy approach than they are that they’ll advance Trump’s agenda.
Trump is the most popular potential 2024 candidate in the event he leaves office in January.
It’s hard to imagine any politician beating a former President, especially a figure with the political legacy of Donald Trump, in a Republican primary. The fundamentals for a 2024 Trump campaign are strong if he leaves office in January, and it appears that the desire for Republican leaders who share the President’s “America First” vision is overwhelming.
