Jim Acosta Attacks Trump, Blaming Him
for Deadly Events in Charlottesville

NewsBusters, by Curtis Houck

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 8/12/2017 5:22:30 PM

CNN senior White House correspondent Jim Acosta unleashed a series of tweets throughout the day on Saturday blaming President Trump for the white supremacists rally and subsequently deadly violence in Charlottesville, Virginia. “These are the consequences of sanitizing white supremacists who seek to be rebranded as part of American ‘right.’ They are peddling hatred,” Acosta complained in his first tweet. Acosta made no attempt to look at his own employer or the rest of the news media in the mirror for the amount of free publicity they’ve given neo-Nazis over the last few years, but that would require a level-headed kind

Now the mayor is blaming Trump as well. I am sick of this. Whose fault were the recent Berkeley riots? What about Baltimore two years ago. What about all the violence against POTUS supporters. We´ve got to MAGA and stop this leftoid nonsense.

If you want to place the blame on these events, it should rest on news organizations like CNN who encourage the weak minded to get out and protest because the coverage of the ensuing riot brings in revenue for the media.

The removal of Confederate statues is a deliberate provocation by the Left. They want this type of reaction to further their goals of destroying America. To turn one AMerican against another. It will never stop. Eventually George Washington will pay the price. He was a slave owner. He fought to create a country in which rich slave owners didn´t have to pay the English king his share of the profits. So a city and state will have to be renamed and we will get a new face on the one dollar bill. And the world´s largest phallic symbol will be renamed the Clinton Memorial. Can´t comment on Acosta´s remarks because I NEVER watch CNN.

The blame belongs on the fascists that directly caused the situation.
The guy was trapped in his car with them all around taunting him. Rocks were thrown striking his vehicle.
Was he to wait and see what they had in mind? Or do what any rational person would and place his life as more valuable than that of those assaulting him?

Of course idiot Acosta would think this is Trump´s fault, because Trump had the audacity to not only take on her Royal Thighness, Queen Hillary, but to also beat her. Today´s violence is the direct result of the Left´s persistent attempt to overturn the results of the 2016 election and to whitewash history by trying to erase Confederates from the history books. You can only attack one side so many times before the attacked have had enough of it and turn on the attackers. The Snowflakes ill-advised decision to take on the more extreme elements of The Right who came out to protest in Charlottesville was a recipe for disaster. Shame someone had to die, but it was inevitable, and the Left, embodied by morons like Acosta, only has itself to blame.

No Jim, liberalism and "PC historical revisionism" is what´s to blame here.

Let´s try this on for size, you lead the ´righteous fight´ to have Martin Luther King, Jr.´s ´raw´ FBI file released to the public... something that has been refused even 50 years after his death. What was it in that file the leftists want to remain buried??

If it´s "OK" to let MLK´s history to remain, then why not the VERY REAL history of the "War Between the States" over "States´ Rights???" It was NEVER about slavery, it was about secession from the Union, something your leftist fiends in California want to do right now... should we go to war against them too?

When that incident turned violent the police should have moved in immediately and arrested the rioters. That should have been done right away as there were not that many people who were acting out violently. If there is any political blame it is with the local and state politicians and police who allowed the incident to get out of control. This had nothing to do with President Trump no matter what the liberal Democrat grandstanding politicians claim.

No, it is the opposite, of course. Acosta and his leftist haters, so self-righteous and obnoxious, insisting that anything "white" must be disrespected, whether current or historic.

Go to Hades, Acosta.

These people really are trying their best to divide the country and cause violence. These paid "antifa" fascist thugs come with helmets, clubs, pepper spray and worse, intent on beating and intimidating anyone who they disagree with.

That causes a backlash. I am not defending running people down, but you can get away with your thuggery with no backlash for only so long, leftists.

It takes two to tango. Those groups came to Charlottesville to fight each other, no doubt about that. Obviously the local politicians and the police chief did not have an effective plan and were not ready to arrest those rioters, no matter what side they were on, once things got violent. That´s really unbelievable because last night the city tried to stop the demonstration and were overruled by a federal judge, so the city and state had to know that there a good prospect that violence would occur.

The grandstanding liberal progressive Democrats and some RINO´s are nitpicking President Trump´s after the fact statement on the incident attempting to put the blame on Trump. While in Chicago every weekend upwards on 25 people are shot in black violence and you never hear a peep out of those politicians.

This is the kind of death the Enemedia was fervently hoping for during the campaign, so they could pin death and violence on Trump as they tried to orchestrate Altamont type situations where "innocent victims" on the Left were murdered by Trumpian barbarians. We all know the Enemedia wanted this, it just came too far after the inauguration for them to score points.

I´m so sick of this arrogant, blustering, stupid excuse for a "journalist". Why is the White House putting up with this leftist gasbag is beyond me. He should´ve been shut down and gotten rid of a long time ago. However there he sits with an audacity that knows no bounds. I did not hear a peep from this person or his pathetic network in giving Obama any blame for the various racial riots that took place on his so-called watch. Jim Acosta and his ilk will continue to reap what they´ve sown and it won´t be pretty.

NEW YORK- They wash their hands of neo-Nazis and wag their fingers at leftists. They denounce a press corps they see as biased and controversies they view as manufactured. But in the frenzied blame game over the deadly violence at a rally of white supremacists, Donald Trump´s loyal base is happy to absolve the president himself. Even as Trump´s zig-zag response to the weekend bloodshed in Charlottesville, Virginia, has brought criticism from some Republican lawmakers, many men and women who helped put him in office remain unmoved by the latest uproar.

In the aftermath of President Trump’s press conference on Tuesday, in which he condemned neo-Nazism and white supremacism, but refused to condemn the alt-right by name and suggested that there were some “very fine people” at Friday night’s white supremacist rally, the Left has done what it does best: overstepped dramatically. Instead of condemning Trump for the moral degradation of separating the alt-right from white supremacism, instead of pushing Trump on exactly whom he was seeking to defend at the rallies on Friday night, the media and the broader Left immediately leapt to one decisive conclusion: Trump’s major error was

The Baltimore City Council unanimously passed a resolution Monday to remove the monuments, WTOP reported. “They [council members] could have started this back in August of last year, but of course nothing got done,” Ms. Pugh told

President Trump should have left well enough alone. His Monday denunciation of costumed sheet-wearers and Nazi wanna-bes could have cleared the way for Americans of all stripes to focus their outrage on things that matter more than presidential words. That would be the violence that is infecting our politics and the frightening acceptance of it as the new normal. But Trump’s defiance yesterday is sure to keep the media pot boiling over his rhetoric instead of an ominous reality. Namely, that real protestors don’t carry baseball bats, crowbars and mace.

The president of the Alliance for American Manufacturing has resigned from President Trump´s American Manufacturing Council, making him the fifth business leader to do so. “I’m resigning from the Manufacturing Jobs Initiative because it´s the right thing for me to do,” Scott Paul tweeted Tuesday. (Snip) Paul´s exit comes amid backlash over the president´s response to the violence at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va., over the weekend. Paul is joining Kenneth Frazier, the CEO of major pharmaceutical company Merck; Kevin Plank, the CEO of Under Armour; and Brian Krzanich, the CEO of Intel, who all resigned from the president’s

Some House Democrats renewed calls for Congress to impeach President Trump on Tuesday after he resorted to blaming "both sides´ for a violent rally in Charlottesville, Va., this past weekend organized by white nationalist groups. "POTUS is showing signs of erratic behavior and mental instability that place the country in grave danger," said Rep. Jackie Speier, D-Calif., in a tweet Tuesday night. "Time to invoke the 25th Amendment." (Tweet) Rep. Gwen Moore, D-Wis., also called on Republicans to initiate impeachment proceedings against Trump. "As we once again hear Donald J. Trump defend those responsible for the deadly riot in Charlottesville

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has weighed in on the weekend´s violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, castigating Donald Trump without naming him. ´We can have no tolerance for an ideology of racial hatred. There are no good neo-nazis,´ McConnell said in a statement. The choice of words, while careful, appeared to push back against Trump´s claim on Tuesday that some ´very fine people´ were among a crowd of white supremacists who rallied in the college town. McConnell´s wife, Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao, stood next to Trump on Tuesday as he insisted both sides of the weekend´s clash bore some responsibility for

Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina warned President Trump on Wednesday that his “words are dividing Americans, not healing them” in the wake of the bloody clashes in Virginia that has sparked a national conversation about white supremacists and race. Mr. Graham also vowed that Republicans will “fight back against the idea that the party of Lincoln has a welcome mat out for the David Dukes of the world.” “Through his statements yesterday, President Trump took a step backward by again suggesting there is moral equivalency between the white supremacist neo-Nazis and KKK members who attended the Charlottesville rally and people like

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), America’s largest Muslim civil rights group, is calling on state and local governments all over the United States to tear down all monuments and memorials commemorating Confederate leaders and the short-lived Confederate States of America. CAIR joined several groups asking for the removal of Confederate memorials in the wake of a “Unite the Right” white supremacist rally that turned violent over the weekend. (Snip) Nihad Awad, CAIR’s national executive director, urged state and local governments to erase every symbol and every vestige of Confederate history immediately. “A fitting response to the deadly terror attack

A crowd of ignorant protesters pulled down a bronze Confederate statue that stood before a county government building in Durham, North Carolina — the angry national backlash to the Charlottesville brouhaha over the Robert E. Lee monument. This is not how civil societies operate. And yet this is what the left has brought, and now cheers. What’s next — burning books with offensive content? Burning books written by those who used to own slaves? At the very least, museums will have to go. The problem with revising history based on a standard of “feeling offensive” — as this anti-Confederate craze is rooted — is that someone,

Former RNC chair Michael Steele says there is no other conclusion to be drawn: President Donald Trump is a racist. Speaking on the Steele & Ungar show — which airs on Sirius XM’s POTUS channel — the former RNC head blasted Trump’s response to Charlottesville. “This playing to the – it’s not even baser instincts. This is just raw, ugly, racism and hatred,” Steele said. “What, for votes? And so this is the Frankenstein monster that’s been created from a campaign that gave license to that.” Co-host Rick Ungar mentioned that a listener sent him an email asking if Steele thinks Trump

In Gainesville, Florida, workers hired by the Daughters of the Confederacy chipped away at a Confederate soldier´s statue, loaded it quietly on a truck and drove away with little fanfare. In Baltimore, Mayor Catherine Pugh said she´s ready to tear down all of her city´s Confederate statues, and the city council voted to have them destroyed. San Antonio lawmakers are looking ahead to removing a statue that many people wrongly assumed represented a famed Texas leader who died at the Alamo. Some people refused to wait. Protesters in Durham, North Carolina, used a rope to pull down the nearly century-old

Fox News viewers were livid after Dana Perino—long suspected to be someone, like Megyn Kelly, who cares more about the opinions of elites in New York and D.C. than Fox News’ viewers—smeared Breitbart News as a site for Nazis on Monday. It seems like the vapid Fox News host knows less about Breitbart News and the alt-right/new right than the Cuban Missile Crisis, which is saying quite a lot. Perino lashed out at President Donald Trump on The Five for allowing Nazis and the alt-right to seek “safe harbor under his wing” before adding that “the
