As we all know, CNN is the most leftwing news outlet in America; we also know that the left is a hotbed of rabid anti-Semitism. That rabid anti-Semitism bared its sharp teeth on CNN Monday night when reporter Martin Savidge used the Paris terror attacks as a teachable moment to explain the difference between Jews and “just people.”
I think what really has shaken the people of Paris, they’ve grown accustom to the idea that of course the city is a target. But this particular assault, aside from the sheer numbers of people that were killed or wounded, it was the neighborhoods that were struck. It was the fact that this time no one was spared. It wasn’t that a person was picked out because of their faith. It wasn’t because a person was picked out because of their jobs such as Charlie Hebdo. This was just people — any kind of person. And that has really shaken the people of Paris. This time you could not explain it away as somebody else’s threat.
On what planet is an attack on Jews not an attack on all of us? On what planet is an attack on journalists and satiric cartoonists, like those at Charlie Hebdo, not an attack on all of us?
It is not as though this CNN reporter quoted Parisians spouting this filth; he certainly didn’t interview anyone. These are his own thoughts, his own analysis.
The Daily Caller’s Jamie Weinstein perfectly illustrates how CNN’s unconscionable reasoning perfectly aligns with that of the Obama Administration:
“There’s something different about what happened from Charlie Hebdo, and I think everybody would feel that,” Kerry said, referring to the attack on cartoonists who had lampooned Islam, and other religions, in their satirical magazine. “There was a sort of particularized focus and perhaps even a legitimacy in terms of – not a legitimacy, but a rationale that you could attach yourself to somehow and say, ‘Okay, they’re really angry because of this and that.’ This Friday was absolutely indiscriminate.”
This war is one between Islamist Barbarians and the civilized world. Period.
Whether it is Jews or homosexuals or left-wing journalists or a one-eyed Eskimo transsexual with a wooden leg, CNN might see a difference between “just people” and Them, but decent people do not.
