CNN will go to any length necessary to attack Tucker Carlson.
He is essentially the anti-CNN on cable news after all.
And you won’t believe the four insane words CNN just used to smear Tucker Carlson.
While CNN spends all day spreading fake news to smear Donald Trump, his supporters, and anybody else who challenges their far-left agenda, Tucker Carlson speaks the truth.
Carlson talks about the issues the American people care about, that CNN won’t touch, which is why he has more than three times the viewers they do on their best day.
CNN host Jim Acosta, who is best known for making a fool of himself screaming at President Trump from the press room in the White House, devoted an entire segment of his show attacking Carlson.
His attacks are over Carlson sounding the alarm on plans to import millions of poorly-vetted Afghan refugees in the United States.
“If history is any guide, and it’s always a guide, we will see many refugees from Afghanistan resettle in our country in the coming months, probably in your neighborhood,” Carlson said on his show. “Over the next decade, that number may swell to the millions. So first we invade and then we’re invaded.”
Acosta responded to that segment by stating, “The pictures of Afghans clinging to military planes are not what riles up the Fox audience – it’s these images of Afghans loaded onto those planes. And leave it to Tucker Carlson, Fox’s ‘Ayatollah of Paranoia’ to take it one step too far.”
Acosta then quoted other conservative media figures, including Newsmax host Steve Cortes, who tweeted, “Raise your hand if you want this plane landing in your town.”
The CNN host responded to the Tweet, stating: “I can think of somebody raising her hand. Anybody ever heard the line, ‘Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free?’” referring to the Statue of Liberty poem, New Colossus.
“America has a long and proud history of welcoming refugees from war-torn countries,” he continued, stating that the Statue of Liberty has “always symbolized that beacon of hope to the world.”
Acosta of course ignores that the Statue of Liberty was not put in place by the founding fathers, or any American for that matter, and instead was gifted by France at the turn of the 20th century.
The quote on the statue is not an edict that must be followed, as many on the Left love to claim.
Acosta continued on to declare that these Afghans came to our aid, and “we can’t leave them behind.”
“The images out of Afghanistan are hard to look at,” he concluded. “There’s no question about it. Perhaps that’s to be expected when you try to end what’s been called the forever war. But if we want to end that forever war, if we really want to get home from Afghanistan, I know one light showing us the way.”
He’s acting as if the millions of Afghan refugees Democrats are demanding be imported all helped in the war effort, which is a completely ridiculous statement.
