(NationalSentinel) Americans who follow news and events and are honest with themselves have long known that the so-called â€œmainstream mediaâ€Â has not been â€˜journalismâ€™ for quite some time, and instead has taken on the role of serving as the Democratic Partyâ€™s propaganda division.
In fact, some have speculated that the establishment press is really the intellectual policy driver behind the Democrat Party and that the media drives party thought, not the other way around.Â
Whichever version is accurate, whatÂ isÂ true is that the mainstream media hates this president, loathes conservatives in general, and heaps praise and adulation on anyone who denigrates both. If they are blatantly anti-American too, well, thatâ€™s just icing on the cake.
So it should come as no surprise to anyone who knows whatâ€™s going on thatÂ CNNÂ is one of the Leftâ€™s primary cheerleaders, as evidenced â€” again â€” by the way in which one of the networkâ€™s hosts covered the recentÂ Antifa memberâ€™s attack on an ICE detention facility in Tacoma, Washington.
As noted byÂ Zero Hedge, in recent monthsÂ CNNÂ ran a very positive piece about â€œRedneck Revolt,â€ another far-Left â€˜revolutionaryâ€™ organization that supports the Second Amendment insofar as itâ€™s necessary to arm themselves against presumed â€œfascistsâ€ â€” which is reallyÂ them, but theyâ€™re too indoctrinated with hate to realize it.
During the segment, which focused on the RR chapter of Tacoma, Willem Van Spronsen, the 69-year-old domestic terrorist who just attempted to firebomb the ICE facility, was seen as one of the groupâ€™s members.
â€œWell, it gets worse,â€ notesÂ Zero Hedgeâ€™s Tyler Durden. â€œNot only didÂ CNNÂ praise the John Brown Gun Club (the precursor to RR) in its May 5th episode of â€˜United Shades of Americaâ€™ with W. Kamau Bell, but the footage featured shot of Van Spronsen himself while commentary presented the group in a positive light.â€ (Related:Â Man with a rifle and â€œincendiary devicesâ€ attacks migrant detention center hours after a protest against ICE.)
Of course,Â CNNâ€™s commentary to the segment promoted the RR chapter as â€œwhite, liberal, progressive people, inclusive, friendly to the world.â€
CNN recently aired a documentary about the antifa militia whose member was killed in an ICE firebombing attack yesterday. You can see Mr van Sprossen at the 4 second time stamp in this trailer. https://t.co/3BJVp0hp4C

The â€˜mainstreamâ€™ media now serves as the primary enablers of Left-wing violence
Now, as the controversy surrounding Van Spronsenâ€™s attack spreads,Â CNNÂ has essentially gone to ground like the rest of theÂ propaganda mainstream media, remaining silent on the attack and most certainly on the networkâ€™s previous rosy coverage of a domestic terrorist (who, some say, may have belonged to a domestic terrorist group).
And, as noted byÂ Fox Newsâ€™ Tucker CarlsonÂ on his Monday night program, not a single 2020 Democratic presidential contender has spoken out about the attack to condemn it and the Left-wing anarchist organization to which Van Spronsen claims to have belonged.Â
â€œSo far, not a single Democratic presidential candidate condemned Saturdayâ€™s attack,â€ Carlson said. â€œWe hope weâ€™re wrong but as of right now, not a single Democrat has condemnedâ€¦a terror attack that took place on our own soilâ€ just days ago.
â€œBut why would they condemn it? Theyâ€™re on board with it,â€ theÂ Fox NewsÂ host continued. â€œJust a few weeks agoÂ The New York TimesÂ published an op-ed calling ICE agents complicit in â€˜mass atrocities,â€™ and then called for ICE agents to have their names and home addresses publicized.â€
It must be said that by likening the situation with illegal immigration by taking on the â€˜causeâ€™ of John Brown, an abolitionistÂ who tried to incite a slave revoltÂ by taking over a federal armory at Harperâ€™s Ferry, Va., in 1859, Antifa, Redneck Revolt, and other Left-wing â€˜revolutionariesâ€™ are setting themselves up as modern-day defenders of morality.
But unlike the slavery issue â€” people who were brought specifically to the United States for the purposes of indentured servitude â€”Â illegal immigrantsÂ are violating duly-passed laws that almost every nation on the planet has adopted. Borders are sovereign; sovereignty as a nation depends on borders.
So the issues are not at all the same, regardless of what these Left-wing nut jobs believe. They arenâ€™t descendants of Jim Brown; they are imitators of Fidel Castro and Soviet Russia, both of which represent tyranny, not liberty.
Leave it to mainstream media outlets likeÂ CNNÂ to promote their anti-American rhetoric and actions.Â
