CNN Political Analyst Calls Benghazi Hero Racist. Here’s the Reason Why.

Published

on

CNN political analyst and USA Today columnist Kirsten Powers decided to let loose with a vicious attack against one of the heroes involved in the Benghazi massacre, labeling him a racist, which, as we’re all well aware these days, is a classic left-wing strategy when attempting to avoid a factual debate of any kind.

Powers called Kris Paronto, a member of the CIA annex security team who guarded the Benghazi CIA annex during the horrific 2012 terrorist attack that left four American citizens dead, a racist for criticizing her tweet which stated that white people’s feelings didn’t matter when choosing a costume for Halloween.

Powers had tweeted, “Dear white people who are upset that you can’t dress up as another race or culture for Halloween: your feelings don’t matter. The only feelings that matter are of those who feel disrespected/mocked by you appropriating their culture for entertainment. Show some common decency.”

Paronto replied on Twitter with a picture of “Game of Thrones” character Daenerys Targaryen surrounded by her acolytes, captioning it, “How Kirsten Powers sees herself after complaining about white people dressing up as other ethnicities for Halloween.”

Powers responded by tweeting that Paronto was a racist, writing, “Sorry racists, but people of color don’t need a white savior. But they need white people speaking up about racial discrimination and no amount of harassment by crazy racists online is going to stop me from doing that.”

Powers seems to be on the warpath lately, having penned a piece on Thursday coming after NBC host Megyn Kelly after making comments about blackface, comments which have seemingly cost Kelly her job.

In her op-ed attacking Kelly, Powers claimed, “After defending blackface, she is reportedly on her way out of the Today show, where she anchors the third hour, and perhaps of NBC altogether. But the original sin was that Kelly was hired by NBC at all.”

Ouch.

The real question to ask at this point is what, exactly, gotten into Powers to turn her so vicious? Does this kind of approach actually help win hearts and minds over to her cause or convince folks her viewpoint is correct?

It’s hard to fathom anyone responding positively to her attacks, but it is a pretty strange time we live in, so who knows?

Ocasio-Cortez Says Democrat Party Is A ‘Center-Conservative Party’ — Not A ‘Left Party’

Yes, she actually said these words…

Of all the absolutely ridiculous thoughts that come from the lips of freshman Democrat Socialist lawmaker Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY), this sentence might just take the cake. Actually, it might just take the entire bakery. It’s as if AOC literally said the sun is the moon and the moon doesn’t exist. It is that stunning and blatantly ignorant. You know, it’s almost as if AOC legitimately has no clue about what she speaks. I wonder how liberals will feel about this. See for yourself, via Washington Examiner: Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said the Democratic Party leans to the right of the political center. She said, “We don’t have a left party in the United States. The Democratic Party is not a left party. The Democratic Party is a center or center-conservative party.” AOC added, “We can’t even get a floor vote on Medicare for All, not even a floor vote that gets voted down. So, this is not a left party. There are a lot of true believers that we can ‘capitalism’ our way out of poverty in the Democratic Party. If anything, that’s probably the majority.” Reactions: https://twitter.com/bpjauburn/status/1219422563883016198?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1219422563883016198&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2020%2F01%2F20%2Faoc-democrats-are-center-conservative-and-believe-you-can-capitalism-your-way-out-of-poverty%2F https://twitter.com/ericsaid691/status/1219420015402856448?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1219420015402856448&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2020%2F01%2F20%2Faoc-democrats-are-center-conservative-and-believe-you-can-capitalism-your-way-out-of-poverty%2F https://twitter.com/thecheesefeed/status/1219397437837545473?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1219397437837545473&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2020%2F01%2F20%2Faoc-democrats-are-center-conservative-and-believe-you-can-capitalism-your-way-out-of-poverty%2F https://twitter.com/kalel1324/status/1219376539583774723?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1219376539583774723&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2020%2F01%2F20%2Faoc-democrats-are-center-conservative-and-believe-you-can-capitalism-your-way-out-of-poverty%2F https://twitter.com/MrSagacious/status/1219432046021500929?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1219432046021500929&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2020%2F01%2F20%2Faoc-democrats-are-center-conservative-and-believe-you-can-capitalism-your-way-out-of-poverty%2F https://twitter.com/NickKnox8/status/1219385743623249920?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1219385743623249920&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2020%2F01%2F20%2Faoc-democrats-are-center-conservative-and-believe-you-can-capitalism-your-way-out-of-poverty%2F https://twitter.com/mckenney1971/status/1219430553113501696?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1219430553113501696&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2020%2F01%2F20%2Faoc-democrats-are-center-conservative-and-believe-you-can-capitalism-your-way-out-of-poverty%2F President Ocasio-Cortez, anyone? Apparently, the far-left radical thinks about the idea. Could there be anything scarier for America? During a podcast interview, AOC admitted she thinks about running for POTUS “every once in a while.” AOC spoke with Yahoo! News’ Skullduggery podcast Sunday about a variety of issues, and the conversation eventually turned to her thoughts on the 2020 election and her own sights for higher office. AOC: “I don’t know, I really don’t know,” the freshman congresswoman said of her next steps in politics. “I think about it every once in a while but […] this is pretty hard already.” LISTEN: https://twitter.com/SkullduggeryPod/status/1117777587110129671?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1117777587110129671&ref_url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.theamericanmirror.com%2Focasio-cortez-every-once-in-a-while-thinks-about-running-for-president-says-biden-doesnt-particularly-animate-her%2F H/T: Twitchy

Jim Jordan & 7 Other House Conservatives Named to Trump’s Impeachment Team [Details]

How will Dems respond to this?

John Salvatore

Reps. Jim Jordan (OH) and Lee Zeldin (NY) are two of the seven House Republicans appointed to President Trump’s impeachment team. Who are the other five? Let’s get into it, via The Hill: The White House announced Monday that President Trump appointed several prominent Republican House members to advise his impeachment defense team ahead of the Senate trial set to begin this week. GOP Reps. Jim Jordan (Ohio), John Ratcliffe Texas), Mike Johnson (La.), Mark Meadows (N.C.), Debbie Lesko (Ariz.), Lee Zeldin (N.Y.), Elise Stefanik (N.Y.) and Doug Collins are set to play leading roles. Continued: A statement from the White House said the lawmakers “have provided guidance to the White House team, which was prohibited from participating in the proceedings concocted by Democrats in the House of Representatives” throughout the House proceedings and would continue to do so in the Senate. At this rate, no matter how hard the left tries, it would appear Trump has 2020 all but in the bag. Great for America, bad for the left. But what’s bad in the eyes of the left is usually good for the left – they just can’t see it. Liberals. SMH.

Let’s see how that plays out for them. As we’ve seen so far, it’s not going well. In fact, it’s going very poorly.
