The following dialogue took place this morning between CNN host Alisyn Camerota and former NBC hotshot/current CNN commentator David Gregory:
CAMEROTA: “You can draw a direct line from all of the vitriol and hate rhetoric about the caravan that’s some 2,000 miles away from our border and the gunman in Pittsburgh, who referenced that, and somehow turned it into an attack on Jews.”
GREGORY: “There’s no question that the president who has waged rhetorical war — and worse, when you talk about family separations on immigrants and suggesting that they’re vermin and infesting the country — you cannot ignore how that can be heard by people who hate immigrants, who are afraid of anyone who they think is going to change their way of life, and who hates Jews.”
There you go.
If President Trump opposes a caravan comprised of thousands of migrants , organized and sustained by leftists, who have no problem stating their intention to illegally enter the United States, it means he is part and parcel of a deadly anti-Semitic hate attack in Pittsburgh.
Does it get more insane than this?
A question for Ms. Camerata and Mr. Gregory: have you said a word about the virulently anti-Semitic, Israel-hating activities on college campuses around the country? Connected it in any way to bowers?
Or the decades-long anti-Semitic ravings of louis farrakhan, including his comment, just a week ago, equating Jews to termites?
Or the Democrat congresspeople who not only have consorted with farrakhan but, in one case, called him “an outstanding human being” – including keith ellison, who is now running to be attorney general in Minnesota?
Or the love of media’s life, President Barack Obama, who spent 8 years crapping on Israel?
Nope, none of this bears at all on the actions of an anti-Semite murderer.
That designation falls exclusively on President Donald Trump, whose daughter and grandchildren are Jewish, and who has done more for Jews and Israel than any President in recent memory.
The sad part is that this desperate attempt to conflate President Trump and robert bowers will work for some people.
The good news I strongly suspect, is that – as was the case with Kavanaugh and the “caravan” – it is likely to repulse even more people than it works for.
It would be hard to overstate how much I hope this is the case.
