If nothing else, the uproar over these spoiled NFL millionaires who work only 16 days a year but still feel the need to spit on the American flag and anthem, has proven once again that our national media is infected with a lethal dose of Groupthink.
Within the MSM, no one has shown the courage or even the ability to think for themselves. It is quite a thing to witness.
Just as fascinating is the media’s glaring, audacious hypocrisy — most especially from CNN. In its never-ending quest to destroy President Trump, the leftwing cable network’s credibility-killing shamelessness has been on display for quite a long time. But in defense of these crybaby one-percenters, it has been especially shameless.
- CNN’s Definition of ‘Divisive’
According to CNN, it is not at all divisive for a bunch of pampered millionaires to politicize a sport, to take a side in the culture wars during a football game, to openly disrespect the American flag and anthem.
No, according to CNN, this issue only gets “divisive” when you criticize this abominable behavior.
You see, in order to keep things from becoming divisive, normal people are just supposed to shut up and take it.
- Criticizing NFL Whiners Who Trash America Is … Raaaaaacist
While I believe Trump went too far in calling for NFL players to be fired, I personally cannot think of a more important role for an American president than to shame a bunch of millionaires expressing contempt for a country that has given them everything, including the freedom to disrespect that country.
Missing from this ongoing CNN smear is the fact that Trump also spent last week criticizing a number of white people, like Hillary Clinton, and even some white people in his own party, like Senators John McCain and Rand Paul.
- Trump Given Zero Credit for Criticizing His Own Billionaire Supporters
Does CNN not want politicians who are not bought?
Does CNN not want politicians willing to stand up against their own donors?
Does CNN not want politicians who are not puppets to big donors?
Then why is Trump getting zero credit for blasting away at the nine anti-American football owners who donated more than $10 million to his campaign and inauguration?
- Suddenly CNN Claims We Have First Amendment Rights in the Workplace
CNN’s Chris Cillizza, who is both breathtakingly dumb and a proven liar, best summed up the glaring hypocrisies at work here. In defiance of Trump and in defense of millionaires trashing America, Cillizza tweeted…
The US is literally premised on the right of people to freely express their beliefs without fear of reprisal[.]
But that is the athlete’s choice. If they want to speak out, they should be allowed to. That they are athletes is meaningless.
That we shouldn’t be allowed to express our 1st amendment rights because you happen to play a pro sport? Really?
Where was this very same CNN’s defense of Americans expressing their constitutional right to “freely express themselves without reprisal” when Christians bakers and florists protested participating in the sacramentalization of sin that is a same-sex marriage?
Well, as we all know, CNN did not defend those Christians; in fact, CNN spent countless hours smearing those Christians as haters and bigots.
Moreover, CNN mercilessly attacked Kim Davis, a Kentucky clerk protesting same-sex marriage by refusing to personally issue gay marriage licenses.
CNN was nowhere to be found in defense of Brenden Eich, the CEO of Mozilla, after he was bullied out of his job over his support of traditional marriage.
Where was the CNN campaign to defend the Google engineer fired just last month for expressing his pro-science opinion about gender?
And where was the CNN campaign to protect these very same NFL players when the league threatened to fine them for their free expression in support of police officers. 9/11 victims, and breast cancer awareness?
CNN so believes in the right to express yourself without fear of reprisal that CNN itself threatened to destroy a man’s life after he ridiculed CNN.
- CNN Claims Trump Is Distracted from Important Stuff
As I said above, I can think of nothing more important for a president than to defend our flag and country against a bunch of crybaby one-percenters.
But because this is a winning issue for Trump, and the left hates it when the right engages in the culture wars, CNN anchors are snidely and sarcastically criticizing Trump for his focus on “important things” — as though Trump cannot possibly do more than one thing at a time.
And yet, here was this very same CNN just last year gushing over President Obama’s annual NCAA tournament picks.
Oh, and here is CNN gushing over their Precious Barry’s 2015 picks.
Man alive, you just gotta see this to believe it…
- CNN Used to Be Fine With Presidents Who Told The NFL What to Do
When President Obama told the Washington Redskins to change their name, here was CNN’s reaction. No freak out, no questioning of Precious Barry’s focus on priorities…
But when a president criticizes a football team for trashing the flag, CNN goes nuclear.
What does that tell us about CNN?
