As was the case with the Trayvon Martin and Mike Brown stories, in Baltimore last week, CNN distinguished itself as a Hate Network more than any other. Like most of the media, in order to keep the Jim Crow of The Welfare State in place, CNN treated the proven-failed leaders of Baltimore like they were heroes who will save the city. The left-wing Hate Network also went further in using their network to whip up more violence in Baltimore, especially against the police.
Baltimore was just more proof that Jeff Zucker has turned CNN into a 24/7 left-wing reality-show that is always looking for a villain, someone to demonize as a way to whip up the mob. And the demonized are almost always Christians, conservatives, police officers — anyone on the Right.
Zucker doesn’t care that CNN’s primetime ratings have collapsed -9%, or that his profits have fallen -5%. Along with President Obama, he is on a Cloward-Piven political crusade to stir hate and anarchy. If a few cops die, so be it. If 200 black businesses burn, so be it. All that matters is that the oppressive, controlling Welfare State that breeds dependence on Democrats, and by extension The State, remains in place.
Here are five times, solely for cynical and partisan political reasons, CNN openly attempted to whip up more violence in the poor, predominantly black neighborhood of Baltimore.
The fact that most of this incitement occurred just as the violence began to settle down should not be considered a coincidence:
- The Police Force Is Populated with Unstable War Veterans
In front of the still smoldering city of Baltimore and the whole world, afternoon CNN anchor Brooke Baldwin used her show to float the monstrous idea that the Baltimore police department might be handing unstable veterans badges and guns.
It would take CNN and Baldwin until the next morning to retract this incendiary charge (and outright smear of our veterans), and even then Baldwin never revealed exactly what it was she was retracting.
Over the years, I’ve seen some sick and twisted Narrative trial balloons. This one takes the cake.
- CNN Anchor Warns Baltimore Protester About Cops: “You Know How They Are”
Wednesday night, less than 48 hours after 200 black-owned businesses had been burnt out, and live on the air during primetime, CNN anchor Chris Cuomo warned a young, black Baltimore protester against the police, “Just be careful, cuz you know how they are …If you seem like you’re being provocative towards them, you know how things can go.”
Cuomo was not only intentionally sowing further seeds of distrust between the community and the police, he was lying. If anything, the restraint the police showed during the rioting went too far in the direction of inaction.
Cuomo’s behavior was so inexcusable that he had hide his true words and misquote himself in a Facebook defense to his fans.
- CNN During Monday’s Riot: ‘There Shouldn’t Be Calm … Uprising … Police Terrorism’
In real-time, as a poor, predominantly black city was besieged by savages intent on rioting, looting, and burning out 200 mostly black-owned businesses., a paid CNN commentator used his time on CNN to send this message: [emphasis added]
No, there shouldn’t be calm tonight. Black people are dying in the streets. They’ve been dying in the streets for months, years, decades, centuries. I think there can be resistance to oppression and when resistance occurs, you can’t circumscribe resistance. You can’t schedule a planned resistance. …
We also have to be very careful about the language we use to talk about this. I’m not calling these people rioters. I’m calling these uprisings and I think it’s an important distinction to make. This is not a riot. There have been uprisings in major cities and smaller cities around this country for the last year because of the violence against black female and male bodies forever and I think that’s what important here. …
What I’m saying is we can’t pathologize people who, after decades and centuries of police terrorism, have decided to respond in this way and when we use the language of thugs, when we use the language of riots, we make it seem as if it’s this pathological, dysfunctional, counter-productive[.]

The CNN employee quoted above is Marc Lamont Hill. To prove that cheering on the destruction of a poor, predominantly black neighborhood is encouraged on CNN, Hill was invited back during primetime just two days later….
- The Police are ‘An Occupying Force In the Hood’
As the rioting slowed, so did CNN’s ratings. What better time to hand the pro-riot Marc Lamont Hill the microphone:
I play basketball with them. I might drink with them, but it’s something about the job itself and the structure of law enforcement in America itself that becomes an occupying force and – they’re an occupying force in the hood. That’s my issue.
- CNN Reporter Intentionally Provokes Confrontation with Baltimore Cop: ‘Are We Under Martial Law’
CNN reporter Miguel Marquez was in the streets of Baltimore Friday night treating those violating the city’s curfew as heroes, and obviously hoping to manufacture and ignite a confrontation with the Baltimore police.
After a “frenetic melee” broke out in front of a CNN satellite truck (naturally), the police asked Marquez to move away. CNN was plenty close to film everything, even in close-up..
As things continued to heat up, a Baltimore cop very politely asked Marquez to move. Rather than act like a journalist and stay out of the story, he attempted to provoke the police officer:
Marquez asked “why’s that?” The officer responded, “because they asked you to, sir. Please comply.” Marquez asked “are we under martial law?” The officer continued to ask Marquez to move and said that there was a curfew, Marquez stated “the media has a right to work” in response.
Don Lemon could be heard off camera saying, “Miguel, it isn’t worth it. An indignant Marquez finally huffed off.
Also of note: The protestors blamed the police for the curfew, not the black Democrat mayor who put it in place, and of course no one at CNN ever corrected the record, including Don Lemon, who was anchoring from the studio
Jeff Zucker is a Bond villain come to life. And whether it is Ferguson or Baltimore or Oakland, his intended victims are always poor black people.
