CNN has stepped up it’s nasty rhetoric towards American voters. Jim Acosta, who was verbally assaulted by elderly Trump supporters at a rally, said things about those voters he would never say about Antifa crowds throwing urine and rocks at police officers. David Gergen stated that if something happens to someone in the media the blood will be on Trump’s hands. That’s interesting, I suppose he’s sort of admitting that Steve Scalise’s blood is on CNN’s hands. It took until August 17, 2018 before a mainstream media outlet would actually call out Antifa as a violent group, even though they constantly physically confronted media members at their mob rallies.
Speaking of media “whipping up violence”, the NYT’s new editorial board member Sarah Jeong had quite the opinion about cops. In addition to calling for killing all men, Jeong also said equality and fairness would require homeless people to be able to murder cops with no repercussions. In fact, Jeong didn’t just fantasize about violence against cops, but actually called for it on a couple occasions too. I wonder if Jim Acosta has ever met Sarah Jeong? I wonder if that would change his thoughts about how it’s conservative media ginning up violence because they occasionally use the phrase “fake news”?
Another liberal judge, DC District Court Judge John Bates, has ruled that Obama’s DACA executive order cannot be repealed. While he granted the administration time to come up with alternatives, this sets a very dangerous precedent. The idea that executive orders could be made the eternal law of the land through judicial fiat removes the constitutional form of government that the United States was built on. People who are afraid of Trump being a tyrant or dictator should have more fear of the precedent set here. What protects us from tyranny is laws being written in Congress. If Congress doesn’t want to replace the DACA executive order with a real law, the courts cannot just step in and make the DACA executive order the irreversible law of the land. Both sides of the aisle should be upset about this ruling. Or at least anyone who opposes tyranny and supports our constitutional form of government.
