CNN Commentator Has Sickening Response To Teen Attacked for Wearing ‘MAGA’ Hat

Published

on

The divisiveness in our country has gotten worse and worse over the years. Now more than ever this country is divided and the American people can see it. Which is why the latest scandal surrounding teenage kids being attacked at a fast food restaurant for wearing a Make America Great Again hat should not shock you what so ever. But what reporters at the CNN news outlet said in response should completely shock you but also not considering their nefarious history.

The Western Journal reported,

“When a 16-year-old boy was assaulted for wearing a MAGA cap in a Texas Whataburger, allegedly by a 30-year-old man named Kino Jimenez, this probably should have been a cultural moment where we all checked ourselves. After all, this was a teenager — not even an adult — being physically accosted simply for wearing a piece of political regalia. Surely nobody could rationalize this, right? Oh, sorry. Forgot this was 2018. That means that everything — up to and including a 16-year-old having his hat stolen and a drink thrown in his face — is fair game. First there were unverified reports from local San Antonio media, picked up by other news outlets, that the young man had been engaging in racist talk before the attack. Those wonderful unsubstantiated slices of blaming an underage victim seem to have come from a single witness and were somewhat retracted and heavily qualified by the original source, although other media outlets had no problem repeating what sounds like the same single-source account.

Whether or not that’s true, however, doesn’t matter to some people. In fact, one TMZ reporter thinks that a MAGA hat is reason enough for a 16-year-old to be assaulted. And CNN contributor Marc Lamont Hill thinks that’s hysterical. It all began when Van Lathan — currently on the 15 minutes of fame clock for his contentious TMZ interview with Kanye West — said he was perfectly happy with anyone wearing the trademark piece of Trump paraphernalia being physically assaulted. “Wish I could take the high road,” Lathan responded to the original video on July 4. “But your MAGA hat reads like a swastika to me. So ummm … hmmm. Yeah. Maybe I’m no longer a decent person.”

Yeah, I’d agree with that last part. Clearly, a CNN contributor like Hill wouldn’t actually think that was acceptable, right? Well, have you watched CNN lately? If you have, you know that’s not out of their wheelhouse — and Hill, who’s already been hanging as far outside the CNN wheelhouse as one can get without being tossed overboard, thought this was hysterical. LOL a kid I don’t politically agree with got assaulted! That’s the very definition of hilarity. And, when some people said that maybe as uproarious as the CNN contributor and Temple University professor (because of course he’s a member of academia) found it, Hill doubled down, arguing that “it’s a little harder to feel sympathy when someone gets Coca Cola thrown on him” if he’s wearing political regalia he doesn’t agree with. A veritable Maxine Waters, this Hill. Perhaps he can buy out the Red Hen.

Now, keep in mind that this all transpired before any of the reports came out that the group which the young man who was assaulted was with may have said racist things. I again reiterate that these reports are single-sourced and have been partially retracted, but their veracity is rather beside the point here. They just thought it was hee-larious a teenager who they didn’t agree with got assaulted by a man who’s allegedly 30-years-old. And when called upon to defend their tacit endorsement of political violence against teenagers, what was their response? Well, the MAGA hat is pretty much like a swastika to them, so it’s totally defensible.

Of course, this is hardly surprising from Hill. In the wake of Trump’s election, Hill managed to grab a little slice of infamy by criticizing “mediocre negroes” like Steve Harvey who met with the president-elect, claiming they were part of his “exploitative campaign against black people.” “They keep bringing up comedians and actors and athletes to represent black interests. It’s demeaning, it’s disrespectful and it’s condescending,” Hill said. “Bring some people up there with expertise, Donald Trump, don’t just bring up people to entertain.”

One doth not need to be a dog to hear that whistle regarding entertainers. Regardless, Hill is pretty much a consistent agent of intolerance. And, no matter what the truth may be about Hunter Richard, the 16-year-old victim of the assault, he certainly sounds a lot more open-minded than Messrs. Hill and Lathan. “He has a right to his opinion,” Richard told the San Antonio Express-News regarding his alleged attacker. “I’m down for other opinions, and I’m open to conversations. Let’s talk through this and come to some sort of agreement or neutral ground.” “Let’s have a conversation if you care so deeply.” So who’s intolerant here?”

This country has become so divided that teenage kids getting a bite to eat at a fast food restaurant enjoying themselves cannot even eat in peace. If this had happened to a Hillary Clinton supporter or a supporter of Barack Obama then this narrative and discussion would be completely different. The news outlets would be freaking out but because it is against Trump supporters people are applauding it. Their needs to be a zero-tolerance policy for aggression like this. There is no reason why this type of behavior should go unnoticed.

Share if you agree that what happened to those teenage boys was wrong.

Share if you believe that they did not deserve that.

Share if you think that the CNN reporters actions are indicative of the disgusting behavior of CNN overall.

Share if the American people deserve better than this divisiveness.

Mueller Begs McConnell For Protection Bill – He Responds With Something Better

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell flatly rejected the need to approve legislation protecting the special counsel’s probe into the 2016 election, saying Wednesday there’s no evidence the investigation needs protection.

Mr. McConnell laid out Republicans’ goals for the lame-duck session of Congress, saying preventing a government shutdown is tops on the list, along with passing new rules to stop sexual harassment on Capitol Hill and approving a farm bill.

He flatly ruled out the chance of a partial government shutdown over border wall money and other spending fights.

And he dismissed the need for Congress to act on legislation Democrats and some Republicans want to protect special counsel Robert Mueller.

“I don’t think any legislation’s necessary,” Mr. McConnell said.

He said he speaks regularly with President Trump and while the president has made his distaste for the investigation clear, he’s never given an “indication” that he would attempt to shut down the probe.

Mr. McConnell said for his part he believes the investigation should be allowed to finish.

Democrats said they’re intent on getting Mueller protections approved during this lame-duck session of Congress.

Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer said Wednesday that those provisions, if they don’t pass as a stand-alone bill, need to be part of the year-end spending bill.

And Mr. Schumer drew lines over other parts of the spending bill, saying it should not go above the current $1.6 billion senators have included for new border security such as a wall.

Mr. Trump has demanded it include at least $5 billion in funding for his border wall. The House has passed a bill with that number, putting it on a crash course with senators.

Mr. Schumer said Congress should compromise by agreeing on the Senate’s number, and he told Mr. Trump to butt out of any negotiations.

“Every time he interferes, it gets bolluxed up,” the New York Democrat said.

Mr. Schumer also took a victory lap on last week’s election results, which saw his caucus likely lose one or two seats. The senator said that was still a victory for Democrats because it could have been much worse for them.

And he said voters sent a signal of support for Democrats’ policy ideas, which he said they’ll pursue even while in the minority in the Senate.

Elected Republican Majority Whip Just Announced – Will Shake Up The Senate

As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service in the world, RWN offers the following information published by: Daily Caller

South Dakota Sen. John Thune was elected to serve as the Republican Majority Whip Wednesday.

Thune was nominated by former whip, Texas Sen. John Cornyn. This comes as Cornyn met his three-term limit in the position. The majority whip is the second-ranking position in Senate leadership.

Republicans voted for other leadership positions Wednesday, making Missouri Republican Sen. Roy Blunt the Policy Committee chairman, Iowa Republican Sen. Joni Ernst was voted in as vice chairwoman of the GOP conference and Wyoming Republican Sen. John Barrasso will serve as Senate Republican Conference chairman, according to The Hill.

Thune has served as chairman of the Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee since 2015. He will now have to step down as chairman, after taking his new job as majority whip.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell praised Cornyn Wednesday, giving him a Louisville slugger baseball bat with “To John Cornyn – The Best Whip Ever,” written on it.

Meanwhile, The Hill has more on Joni Ernst elected to serve as vice chairwoman of the Senate Republican Conference:

Sen. Joni Ernst (R-Iowa) has been elected to serve as vice chairwoman of the Senate Republican Conference, becoming the first woman to be elected to a Senate GOP leadership position since 2010.

Ernst, a veteran of the Iraq War who served a total of 23 years in the military, is considered a rising star among her colleagues.

She defeated Sen. Deb Fischer (R-Neb.) in the only contested Senate Republican leadership race after months of quiet campaigning in the conference.

Senate Republicans saw Ernst as someone who might be a better communicator for the conference on television, while Fischer garnered praise as someone who worked diligently behind the scenes to build relationships with members of GOP leadership.

Ernst emerged as the winner after Senate Republicans met in the Old Senate Chamber on Wednesday morning to vote on the new leadership team for the 116th Congress.

McConnell was reelected as Senate majority leader, Sen. John Thune (R-S.D.) was elected as majority whip, Sen. John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) was elected as Senate Republican Conference chairman and Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.) was elected as Senate Republican Policy Committee chairman.

Ernst burst onto the national scene in 2014 with an ad recounting her upbringing on a farm where she castrated hogs and pledging that she would “make ‘em squeal” in Washington by cutting pork.

Senate Republicans say McConnell has been eager to add a woman to his elected leadership team after he came under criticism in 2017 for not appointing a woman to a special health-care working group he created.

A woman has not served as a member of the elected Senate GOP leadership since 2010, when Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) stepped down as vice chairwoman of the GOP conference after losing her primary race to conservative challenger Joe Miller.

Former Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-Texas) served as chairman of the Republican Policy Committee from 2007 to 2009, the highest-ranking position a woman has held in the Senate GOP leadership since Sen. Margaret Chase Smith (R-Maine) chaired the Senate Republican Conference in the early 1970s.

Fischer and Sen. Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.) already serve as informal counselors on McConnell’s leadership team.

Senate Republicans also came under scrutiny during Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court confirmation hearings over the all-male GOP membership of the Judiciary Committee.

McConnell says one of his priorities is to recruit more women to the Judiciary panel.
