MSNBC or as radio commentator Mark Levin calls them MSLSD took fear mongering to a new low (can they go any lower than where they already are?) recently when commentator Katy Tur in an interview with Nebraska republican senator Deb Fisher suggested Trump would start targeting journalists for death.
MSNBC took its fear mongering smears of the Donald Trump administration to a dark new low Monday afternoon when reporter Katy Tur suggested the president’s war with the media would start racking up actual casualties. During an interview with Nebraska Senator Deb Fischer, a Republican, Tur suggested Trump would take a page from Russian President Vladimir Putin’s playbook and start targeting journalists for death.
“As we know, there’s, since 2000, been a couple dozen suspicious deaths of journalists in Russia who came out against the government there,” Tur reminded the Senator before unscrupulously suggesting Trumps distaste for the media would escalate, “Donald Trump has made no secret about going after journalists and his distaste for any news that doesn’t agree with him here. Do you find that this is a dangerous path he is heading down?”
Fischer defended the President, saying that it’s his job to foster relationships with leaders from countries around the globe. “And I believe that President Trump will recognize, or does recognize right now, who Putin is,” she added in his defense.
But Tur wasn’t having any of it, pressuring the Senator by asking, “What makes you say that he does recognize who Putin is when he hasn’t said so publicly?” The Senator tried to argue that the new president wasn’t going to sour the relationship right out of the gate, but was cut off by her interviewer. “There is a difference between attacking and flattering,” Tur spat.
And to suggest that Trump would follow Putin down a “dangerous path” and start assassinating journalist is vile. It’s reporting like this that helps to create the circumstances for the violent rhetoric we’re seeing from the left, such as Madonna talking about blowing up the White House and Sarah Silverman calling for a military coup.
KATY TUR: Senator, the junior senator in your state, Senator Ben Sasse, came out pretty strongly over the weekend condemning Donald Trump’s assertion that we are just as bad as Russia. When he said that, you know, we — America does bad and terrible things, too, when Bill O’Reilly asked him if Vladimir Putin was a killer.
Why — what is your sense of why this president is going above and beyond — bending over backwards, if you will — to stay away from criticizing the Russian president? And it’s almost give him an excuse. As we know, there’s, since 2000, been a couple dozen suspicious deaths of journalists in Russia who came out against the government there. Donald Trump has made no secret about going after journalists and his distaste for any news that doesn’t agree with him here. Do you find that this is a dangerous path he is heading down? MSNBC’s Tur Suggests Trump Will Be Responsible for ‘Suspicious Deaths’ of Journalists
Katy I would like to remind you of a song from the 60’s by Buffalo Springfield called
“For What It’s Worth” that says: Paranoia strikes deep/ into your heart it will creep/ Starts when you’re always afraid/Step out of line they’ll come and take you away!!! That’s what you sound like Katy.
Hey katy where were you during the Bill Clinton Administration when there were 52 mysterious deaths associated with him and more recently with Hillary there were at least seven mysterious deaths in one month all associated with situations that could expose her hmmmmm? You can read all about them below.
Katy and other reporters and various government officials seemed so shocked at Trump’s remarks to Bill O’Reilly when he said to him about calling Putin being a killer, “What makes you think we are so innocent?” I agree with him totally. We are not that innocent. To think otherwise is being totally naive.
Our CIA has done many underhanded covert operations where people have been killed. Obama authorized us to go after Quadafy in Libya and ordered troops there without the consensus of congress. Quadafy was killed by his own people backed by us when he was starting to turn around and support us. Going into Iraq was a huge mistake even though all the intelligence said otherwise. There were lots of not so innocent atrocities committed in Vietnam like the famous Mai Lai massacre by Lt. Calley.
In the Sylvester Stallone movie Expendables 3, Mel Gibson plays a CIA operative who goes rogue on his own with his own army. Although it is a Hollywood movie, it was written by Stallone who is a very patriotic and conservative republican as is Gibson both in real life. When Gibson as Conrad Stonebanks explains why he went rogue to some of Stallone’s people who he’s captured,I think, is very telling and so true about what really goes on:
“Before you all start grabbing bricks to stone me at the Hague you might wanna check your own hands for blood. The baddest survive. I didn’t make the rules. I was an American fighting for America. When the CIA wanted guys to do dangerous work in dangerous places they called us. When they didn’t want to get their hands dirty they called us. We cleared every hotspot they had. We bumped the bad guys so when the good guys rolled in they looked like heroes. We killed a lot, but we saved more lives than you could imagine. Then they tried to bury me. The moral here is never do business with the government.” Mel Gibson as Conrad Stonebanks in Expendables 3.
So Bill, katy, Marco and all the rest who expressed shock at Trump’s remarks, Trump is right, “What makes you think we’re so innocent?”
