CNN Fires Jeffrey Lord for Calling Fascist Media Matters President a Fascist

CNN has fired Trump loyalist Jeffrey Lord after the longtime conservative commentator and columnist sent a two-word tweet to fascist, anti-free speech Media Matters president Angelo Carusone, who has made a slimy, anti-American career out of trying to shut down big voices on the right who is opposed to the communist takeover of America and those who he’s unable to win arguments with in the arena of ideas.

First, some background. Jeffrey Lord, a former Reagan administration official, has had a column at The American Spectator for several years. On Thursday, he penned a piece characterizing Media Matters for America (MMFA) as a George Soros-funded fascist organization and called out Angelo Carusone for his attempts to end the careers of big voices on the Right, like Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Bill O’Reilly, etc.

Here’s an excerpt of what Lord wrote at The American Spectator:

It is not a lie, Angelo, that you and MMF are trying to end Sean Hannity’s free speech. You have been playing this fascist game for years with others — Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Bill O’Reilly etc etc. If there is a conservative with an audience of any size your fascist instinct is not to debate honestly but to simply silence the opposition. Period. Threaten their sponsors and bully.

This is America, Angelo. Not Fascist Italy, Nazi Germany or Communist Russia.

I have no intention of calling for some regulatory God somewhere or some pooh-bah donor to shut you down or defund you.

I really do believe in free speech. And the dirty little secret here?

Your attempt to get Sean Hannity — now that the wider world is on to your game — is only going to help him. Just like it helped Rush Limbaugh before that.  And for that matter? You are helping President Trump.”

The key point here is that the Left in this country cannot argue their anti-American ideology and they have to do it through the use of force and bully tactics, very similar to the way the Left has implemented their anti-human tyrannies throughout human history. Jeffrey Lord, while over the top in his support of Trump at times while on CNN, is absolutely correct on this.

Fast-forward a few hours later and this exchange took place on Twitter between Lord and Carusone, an exchange in which Lord mocked Carusone as being a fascist by using an old Nazi salute:

This triggered CNN, as they don’t like their fellow Democrats being outed as the fascists that they are.  “Nazi salutes are indefensible,” a CNN spokesperson said in a statement. “Jeffrey Lord is no longer with the network.”

Jeffrey Lord was clearly mocking Media Matters’ Angelo Carusone, yet Lord got attacked viciously on Twitter as if he’s himself a Nazi.

His responses were spot on and here’s a sampling:

CNN is clearly not dumb enough to think Lord’s mocking tweet was serious. Obviously, they were looking for a reason to fire him and the Soros stooges over at Media Matters probably whined enough to make it happen.
