Journalists as Storm Troopers

Once upon a time real Nazis roamed through Europe. When they first took power they were supported by a group called the SA, the Storm Troopers led by Ernst Rohm. Among the tactics practiced by the SA was public harassment of Jewish citizens. They added to that, beatings on the street, boycotts of Jewish businesses, efforts to ensure that Jews could not find employment. And that was just for a start.

Doesn’t that sound familiar? Today’s Democratic Party and their enablers in the mainstream media treat Trump supporters and other Republicans the way the SA treated Jews. Rep. Maxine Waters led the parade of Democrats calling for systematic harassment of Trump cabinet members. And the hapless and hopeless Jennifer Rubin, blogging for the Washington Post, called for all Republicans to be incinerated. Perhaps Rubin is not smart enough to know that the other word for such a bonfire is Holocaust, meaning burnt sacrifice, but she has still showered herself with ignominy.

Now, we read that two of the main honchos on CNN, in their effort to promote their brand by stoking the impeachment narrative, are encouraging their reporters to harass Republican senators… the better to see the impeached president convicted.

CNN’s political director urged the news team to get “in their faces” of all Republican senators on a daily basis, both at work and at home, about President Trump’s Ukraine phone call, according to undercover audio.

Project Veritas posted an audio snippet last week as part of its #ExposeCNN investigation on the network’s morning “rundown call” featuring CNN Worldwide CEO Jeffrey Zucker and political director David Chalian discussing how to “brand” Republicans.

“I think we have to be in their faces of all 53 Republican senators on as much of a daily basis as possible, whether they’re at home or on the hill, asking each one of them, is it okay for the President of the United States to apply pressure to a foreign country in hopes of getting a domestic political opponent investigated?” said Mr. Chalian on the audio.

Don’t give them any peace. Harass them at work. Harass them at home. These people have turned into the fascists they think they are fighting. It’s a sad commentary on the current state of the media. It is not going to end well.

I Look at California losing power as good news. It's obviously going to spread all over the country in time. The difference between chaos and complexity is you know the origins of a complex system. We're definitely at that point where things are breaking down but if they weren't breaking down and we turned the levers of power over the people that hated us there would be a white genocide. Its going to make it easier for white people to survive if the whole civilization breaks down. Lemonade out of lemons!

As Prof. Reynolds says (daily, or very nearly every day) "journalists" and "TV news readers" are democrat operatives with by-lines and chyrons.

CNN is a subsidiary of AT&T.

I think this point should always be included in discussion of CNN bias and bad behavior.

Jennifer Rubin is what is known among our Tribe as a "shonde for the goyim".
