The CNN narrative took a major blow today as they tried to drum up anti-Trump propaganda. Brooke Baldwin was set to interview a Syrian man, Kassem Eid, and and led the piece with a clip of Hillary Clinton saying “we cannot speak of protecting Syria’s babies, and in the next breath close America’s doors to them”. It is clear that CNN intended to gave Kassem critisize Trump’s policies. But they got a surprise instead.
Kassem took CNN to task on their continued silence over the Syrian gas attacks, not only of recent times, but also under Obama’s watch in 2013. He talked about how no one was listening to the suffering taking place.
Whilst we can look at the video and be happy that CNN received a much needed wake up call, Kassem’s point should not be ignored. We should not be guilty of the same deliberate “ignorance” of the MSM. Many may support a non-interventionist approach to troubles in the Middle East (and there is a lot of evidence to suggest that we have actually made the area less safe), but it is wrong to stand by and let innocent people be murdered.
Whether it turns out to be Assad or Syrian Rebels responsible for the attacks, the victims are the same: innocents. Concerted, coordinated action with other countries is needed to either provide safe havens (in the area) or to remove the chemical and biological weapons (like Obama said he had done). Don’t be like CNN and the MSM, listen to the voices of those that are being afflicted.
A set up by CNN to try and push the anti-Trump narrative experienced a major detour today when a survivor of a gas attack in 2013 didn’t follow the line of propaganda that CNN was pushing. CNN pundit Brooke Baldwin had interviewed this victim of the 2013 attack just 3 days ago. This survivor spoke of the attacks on innocents setting up the liberal humanitarian perspective.
Fast forward to today when we have the aftermath of last night’s airstrike, Ms. Baldwin brought Kassem Eid back to frame a narrative about President Trump launching an airstrike in Syria, but being unwilling to accept Syrian refugees. They wanted to make Trump out to be a hypocrite.
To set up the attack on Trump, CNN producers showed Hillary Clinton saying, “we cannot speak of protecting Syria’s babies, and in the next breath close America’s doors to them“.
What happened next shocked Baldwin and she couldn’t shut this guy down fast enough…Epic!
