Sometimes it’s difficult to avoid getting the impression that people on the left just can’t resist the allure of using vulgarity on television. The childish glee they display in commenting at length, for days, on the rumor that Trump referred to a handful of countries by using a taboo term is very, very telling.
Recall a relatively famous episode of South Park in which the boy’s favorite cartoon was going to say a naughty word on air. The premise of the joke was that the children were overjoyed just to witness a taboo being broken on national television. The episode in reference also broke the naughty word barrier by saying one or more taboo terms well over 100 times during the program. The episode built to a climax when the “words of curse” were used enough times to summon demonic creatures who threatened to consume the world. The joke is that being excited about hearing a word that children are not allowed to say in a classroom is exceedingly childish.
But this is what we are seeing in the fallout of an unverified report that Donald Trump is supposed to have said a bad word in reference to Haiti and other countries in that region. Childishness.
After the Washington Post reported the alleged saying of the word of curse, CNN anchors began using the word constantly, over and over, for hours. They loved it. The word rolled off their tongues like rotten honey. Then they got to say their next favorite word, “racist.”
Yes, they used the report of Trump’s calling an African country unpleasant in an unpleasant way as a reason to, once again, call Trump a racist.
You’ve noticed, no doubt, that when the Clintons filched billions of dollars out of Haiti and were closely tied to kidnappings, and when a Clinton affiliate was convicted of child trafficking out of Haiti CNN didn’t even notice.
Why would they?
After all, where’s the excuse to curse in that story? When Hillary Clinton referred to young black men as “superpredators” in the 90s, you probably didn’t hear about it unless you were a Rush Limbaugh listener. That’s because this isn’t about convictions, defending the weak, or anything other than political tribalism and the desire to say a taboo word on air… over and over, and over.
The offending comment supposedly came after a meeting between Trump and Democrats. In that meeting, they agreed that Trump could move forward with his plans to construct the border wall in exchange for his approval of their plans for DACA.
This was actually an enormous concession on Trump’s part. It was such a great concession, in fact, that many Trump supporters are up in arms about it. They say, his recent leniency on DACA is a direct violation of his campaign promises. They say that DACA is disastrous for the country and economy. People on the left, naturally, think it’s wonderful. In fact, many Democrat leaders and even pundits on the left were saying how surprised they were.
To put it into perspective; Trump gave his opponents some leeway on immigration. Then many prominent people on the left were taken aback at how reasonable Trump was being. And then suddenly – almost as if they realized that they needed a way to go back to deriding Trump – the news about the s#ithole comment came out.
Boy, it almost seems that the whole doo-doo hole comment story is really quite strategically timed to bring Dems back from actually starting to like Trump. After all, if they don’t hate Trump then they don’t really have a party, do they?
Hating Trump is all they have, it’s the only thing they know how to do. Hating trump is their only idea. So, they fell off of their game for an afternoon and they need a way to get back on the hating Trump game. So what did they do?
They lied. That’s right. They lied. The claim that Trump called Haiti a ‘s#ithole’ is a lie.
Here’s how it went down.
The claim made the news. Then everybody squealed with naughty, mad, glee. Then Trump tweeted, “The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used. What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made – a big setback for DACA!”
The mainstream media has been lying nonstop about Trump for over two years now. So who’s got the better track record to judge this story by, Trump or the MSM? Trump does, obviously.
So what was our first clue that the claim is untrue? CNN’s first sentence on the topic was, “One of the sources briefed on the Thursday Oval Office meeting with lawmakers confirmed Trump asked, “Why do we want all these people from ‘shithole countries’ coming here?”
They don’t say who the source is. They don’t reference the person who first heard the comment or anyone in that meeting who heard it. They said, this; “A person familiar with the meeting said Illinois Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin and South Carolina GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham brought a plan to Trump that involved cutting the visa lottery in half and, at the behest of the Congressional Black Caucus, the rest would go to underrepresented countries in Africa and Temporary Protective Status nations, including Haiti. The person said the language was salty on both sides.”
So the language was “salty” on both sides and all we get to hear about is claims from someone who was “familiar” with the meeting? Who heard the comment? Who did he say it to? What kind of “salty” language came from the other side of the table?
We don’t know because the lame-stream media isn’t reporting on it.
The Washington Post actually broke the story, and this is what they said that Trump said, “Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?”
Those are two different sentences. So which is it? Did he say, “Why are we having…” or did he say, “Why do we want…”?
The CNN report references the Washington Post report as the breaking source. So why can’t they even accurately corroborate each other?
Even the WSJ couldn’t get the story straight. They published the wrong manuscript in their version of the story.
Alright, you’re probably thinking that’s a petty point- the sentences are similar enough. But think for a moment about the Trump controversy that this distracted us from the- Michael Wolff book. It was just at the moment when we were learning that Wolff is a known fabricator of political scuttlebutt. He’s a liar.
Add this to your long list of reasons to switch off the legacy media.
