This montage of American media blaming Trump for New Zealand terror attack is SHOCKING

“The language he uses in his manifesto is all about invaders. It’s also language the President Trump used in a campaign ad before the midterm election,” said CNN anchor John Berman in his snippet in the clip below.

This montage, put together by Grabien, is shocking. It is shocking because of how casually they blame the president, and how they don’t bother with any caveats at all. You would think that at least saying “we can’t draw a direct line” or “yes this psycho brought up Trump, but his manifesto had a whole lot else in it too” or even “despite calling Trump a “symbol”, the killer’s references to motivation relied heavily on 8chan ideology” would be the rule. But nope. No caveat. No other bad guys. Not even the actual bad guys. It’s just Trump. Just like everything else, he’s the only bad guy.

Watch this montage, via Grabien.

One clip not included was highlighted by Newsbusters on Friday morning, where a CNN contributor just seconds after hearing the Prime Minister of New Zealand talk about the details of the attack, made his very first comment be about Trump.



This obsessive focus is so bad for us all. Seems like some folks are confused about that, even around here. But don’t be confused, the Trump obsession is bad. This kind of thing is how you fail to realize a threat: By not understanding what is really behind it, or everything that is behind it.

It’s also crazy short-sighted to simply make Donald Trump the hook to hang every bad thing that ever happens on. Is it possible when he’s gone the whole world just becomes some utopia and nothing bad ever happens again?

IT’S NOT??

Then what the heck are you doing, CNN? This terror attack should be an alarm, alright. It should be an alarm about a threat that is complicated, that is internal to each country but exists across the globe, but has dozens of fathers.

But no. No no. Don’t caveat. Hey don’t be careful at all. Don’t point out the dozens of threads of this terrible story and the investigation of it. No, forget all that. Just blame Trump. That’ll fix it. Right?

If y’all pray, you should pray. For the victims. For New Zealand. And for the benighted American press landscape that may doom us all for its lazy, incurious, dishonest, partisan ignorance.

Just pray. Even though Ocasio-Cortez thinks it’s a waste of time.

The evil jackhole actually posted, “Were/are you a supporter of Donald Trump?
As a symbol of renewed white identity and common purpose? Sure. As a policy maker and leader? Dear god no.”

The media always ignores the last part of that. CNN doesn’t care about money or ratings, their TDS is terminal.

They see Islamic terrorist as their partners in bringing down our country, our Constitution and our Judeo-Christian values. It is why they are more outraged at a Mosque attack than a Synagogue or Gay Nightclub attack (if perpetrated by a Muslim). My hope is that Americans and others are waking up to their lies and deceit.

I was thinking last night . . . if this “white guy” terrorist is somehow automatically far right (which he apparently actually IS) and all responsibility for him is attributed to Trump alone, then why aren’t all the “brown” people terrorists automatically the direct responsibility of the Democrats/the Left?

Funny how those terrorists are also somehow the fault of white people, eh?

According to Breitbart he loved Communist China and was glad America was in decline. The more he is exposed as a leftist white supremacist the less the media will talk about him. The Left, the Democrats and the MSM are the true racist, elitist in this world and always have been.

What Trump calls the situation at the border is absolutely spot on. It’s an invasion. It doesn’t have to be military and it is largely organized. Never does he say immigrants aren’t welcome here. He says we want them here but they have to come legally.

Funny how the left doesn’t consider rhetoric when their rhetoric directly inspires thugs to murder cops.

Christian Persecution and Genocide Is Worse Now Than “Any Time in History,” Report Says

Shameful Silence: Media Has Ignored Christian Genocide

Christians in most of the world are suffering massive, sustained and very bloody persecution at the hands of Muslim extremists. The American broadcast networks are reluctant to report on it, let alone call the atrocity what it is (and what the Obama administration has admitted it is: genocide.

As we lament this horrible tragedy in New Zealand, where is the similar outcry against the slaughter of Christians in Nigeria by Muslims. I think the count was over 120 in the past few days. Maybe CNN will report on that after they think of a way to link those killings to Trump.

I am firmly convinced one of the biggest reasons the Right continually loses is because they don’t hit back. The Left is a bunch of rabid bullies and the, Right, trying to be respectful and fearing being labeled a hater, cowers in a corner not letting the uninformed hear the other side of the argument. So when all your hear is Leftist talking points stated with conviction and how wrong the Right is, is it any wonder people would vote and support the Left and their policies?
Being nice only works in a civilized society that gives mutual respect to each other. Without that, the “civil” side is just a door mat. It’s time for the Right to stop being a doormat!

Honestly, I said it last night while talking with a friend as soon as the news came out, they will blame this tragedy on Trump’s rhetoric. I’m not surprised at all and kinda surprised anyone would think the LEFT would do something so stupid. These idiots came up with the “Russia Hoax” for Christ’s sake. They will do anything to take him down. The game-plan is simple…Regardless of the truth, lie, lie, lie, and be negative when talking Trump.

Instead of worrying about if Muslims feel safe in New Zealand, the media should be asking if Christians, or the average New Zealand citizen feels safe in New Zealand(?), but they have no intention of seeking out the truth. Their agenda consists of delegitimizing New Zealand’s decision to restrict immigration from the Middle East over the past 10 years, and advancing the notion that the United Nations should dictate their immigration policy, and then blaming any consequences of left wing ‘compassion’ on Trump and right wing politicians. It’s the same thing we’ve seen in Europe, and it probably isn’t far away from everyday life in the United States. If Muslims want to create a world where it’s kill or be killed, it’s suicidal to sit back and watch as they destroy cultures worldwide.
