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

Yet, President Trump condemned those very acts. I think Jim Acosta is quite immature.

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.

They´ve partnered with liberal groups like ProPublica, BuzzFeed News, and the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) to make information about "hate events" easily accessible to journalists. And now, there are troubling signs that this tool could be used to ferret out writers and websites that run afoul of the progressive orthodoxy.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi issued a statement today declaring her support for the Congress to pass a resolution censuring President Donald Trump for “the repulsiveness” of his “words and actions.” “Every day, the president gives us further evidence of why such a censure is necessary,” said Pelosi. The censure resolution was introduced in the House of Representatives today by Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D.-N.Y.), Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman (D.-N.J.) and Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D.-Wash.). The resolution immediately gathered 77 co-sponsors, all of whom are Democrats. “The President’s remarks following the violence in Charlottesville over the weekend are a moral outrage,”

Federal authorities are investigating whether sensitive data was stolen from congressional offices by several Pakistani-American tech staffers and sold to Pakistani or Russian intelligence, knowledgeable sources say. What started out 16 months ago as a scandal involving the alleged theft of computer equipment from Congress has turned into a national-security investigation involving FBI surveillance of the suspects. Investigators now suspect that sensitive US government data — possibly including classified information — could have been compromised and may have been sold to hostile foreign governments that could use it to blackmail members of Congress or even put their lives at risk.

The chairman and president of the Kennedy Center said they were “grateful for this gesture” after it was announced President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump would not attend the Kennedy Center Honors in December. “The Kennedy Center respects the decision made today by the office of the president of the United States,” chairman David M. Rubenstein and president Deborah F. Rutter said in a joint statement. “In choosing not to participate in this year’s Honors activities, the administration has graciously signaled its respect for the Kennedy Center and ensures the Honors gala remains a deservingly special moment for the

As the “Russian Collusion” excuse for Hillary’s loss fails for want of evidence (and common sense) as did her “misogyny” claim before it, Hillary’s pal, Governor Terry McAuliffe, obviously thought he had another keen plan to keep his party from utter ruin. Instead, he is more likely to have stirred up a whirlwind, which will sink his party even further in the voters’ eyes. Led by Charlottesville Deputy Mayor Wes Bellamy (a McAuliffe appointee to the local school board now on leave for racist, sexist, homophobic tweets, the city council narrowly approved removing a statue of Robert E. Lee from

NEW YORK -- A former New York City police officer, whose claims of police corruption in the 1970s were chronicled in an Al Pacino movie, joined dozens of current and former officers Saturday at a rally in support of getting quarterback Colin Kaepernick a job in the NFL. Kaepernick, the former starting quarterback of the San Francisco 49ers, became a controversial figure last year after he refused to stand for the national anthem in what he called a protest against oppression of people of color. He opted out of his contract in March and became a free agent, but so

WASHINGTON — Five days after President Donald Trump took office, he signed an executive order that promised a swift, sharp crackdown on illegal immigration — immediate construction of a massive border wall, quick hiring of 5,000 new Border Patrol agents and stepped-up deportation of undocumented migrants. "Beginning today, the United States of America gets back control of its borders," Trump declared at the Jan. 25 ceremony at the Department of Homeland Security, which controls federal immigration agencies. Seven months later, construction of the wall has yet to begin, the number of Border Patrol officers has actually dropped by 220

As of Friday morning, the five flags other than the United States flag — representing Spain, France, Mexico, the Republic of Texas and the Confederacy — are being left to the history books.The park received criticism following last weekend’s violence in Charlottesville, Va., from TMZ, Fox News and others for flying the Confederate states flag. As a result, Six Flags Over Texas decided to take down all but the U.S. flag.

Thousands of anti-fascist protesters are marching through the streets of Boston in protest of right-wing activists hosting a ´free speech´ rally on Saturday. Only a handful of attendees could be spotted against the swarm of the estimated 15,000 counter-protesters who chanted loudly as they made their way towards Boston Common. Organizers of the rally had attempted to distance themselves from the neo-Nazis, white supremacists and others who fomented violence in Charlottesville last week. The city mayor had pleaded for counter-protesters to stay away, saying their presence would draw more attention to the far-right activists and could result in violence.
