CNN just took their war on Donald Trump to a scary new level.
No one had ever seen anything like it.
That’s because one CNN host wants the FBI to censor Trump supporters for this insane reason.
Host Christiane Amanpour interviewed disgraced former FBI Director James Comey about the Mueller report as well as the FBI’s involvement in the 2016 election.
At one point in the interview, Amanpour asked Comey if the FBI should have rounded up Trump supporters and either jailed or censored them for chanting “lock her up!” during Trump rallies.
“Do you, in retrospect, wish that people like yourself, the head of the FBI, the people in charge of law and order, had shut down that language, that it was dangerous potentially, that it could have created violence, that it’s kind of hate speech? Should that have been allowed?” Amanpour asked Comey.
“That’s not a role for government to play,” the disgraced former FBI Director responded. “The beauty of this country is people can say what they want, even if it’s misleading and it’s demagoguery. The people who should have shut it down were Republicans, who understand the rule of law and the values that they claim to stand for. Shame on them, but it wasn’t a role for government to play.”
Even though Comey did not take the bait, Amanpour’s intentions were clear.
A CNN host wanted to unleash the FBI on their political opponents and jail them for engaging in speech that Democrats don’t like.
Many Americans believe that is the frightening face of the future of the American left.
CNN –which is a fake news network best known for policing social media platforms and agitating for the liberal Silicon Valley tech overlords to ban Trump supporters – is now taking their quest to silence the right to political rallies.
Activists at CNN successfully lobbied tech firms to ban pro-Trump radio host Alex Jones because he engaged in “hate speech.”
To liberals like the anti-free speech totalitarians at CNN, hate speech is defined as all speech liberals disagree with.
“Hate speech” and “dehumanizing” speech are the new umbrellas they seek to define all conservative speech under.
Once pro-Trump, pro-Life, pro-Second Amendment, Christian or other “unacceptable” forms of speech are classified as hateful or dehumanizing, it is a simple task for social media companies to censor it from their platforms since their terms of service ban those types of speech.
The catch is – and liberals understand this – Twitter, Facebook, Google and their compatriots never define what hate speech is.
They leave it up to the left-leaning content monitors to decide.
Now CNN – after seeing how successful this playbook is in banning conservatives from social media – wants to take it to the next level.
It’s not enough to erase conservatives from the internet.
Now their hosts agitate for the FBI to jail Trump supporters because they participated in a chant one of their anchors didn’t approve of.
