In what has to be one of the most embarrassing moments in the history of journalism, CNN’s Wolf Blitzer attempted to conflate the riots in Charlottesville, Virginia last weekend with the Islamic terrorist attacks in Barcelona, Spain on Thursday, an attack that ISIS has claimed responsibility for.
Here’s resident CNN leftist Jim Sciutto, an Obama operative masquerading as a journalist, setting up the narrative for Wolf Blitzer that the Jihadist vehicular attack was a “copycat” of the horrific white supremacist car attack in Charlottesville:
“And the final point I would make, Wolf, is just know that, in light of the uproar over the last several days, five days apart you have white supremacists in Charlottesville use a vehicle to kill and here you have attackers at least following the modus operandi of terrorists using vehicles apparently to kill as well and that…those shared tactics that should be alarming.”
Blitzer took the ball and ran straight to crazy-town:
“There will be questions, if not what happened in Barcelona, was at all — at all — a copycat version of what happened in Charlottesville, Virginia. Even though they may be different characters and different political ambitions, they use the same killing device. A vehicle going at high speed into a group, a large group, of pedestrians and as local police are saying, at least one person is now dead. 32 injured. Many of them in critical condition right now.”
Because radical Islamic terrorists had never thought of using a vehicle as a weapon before Charlottesville, right fellas? There have been a plethora of Islamic terrorist attacks this year alone using cars, vans, or trucks — it’s even in the ISIS playbook.
So why would CNN, known for trafficking in “fake news” try so hard to conflate the completely unrelated attack in Barcelona with the one in Charlottesville, which was a war of fascists versus communists?
Obviously, they have an interest in keeping Charlottesville story from moving off the front page as they see the story damaging to Trump. Is there any other reason for this shameful reporting? Any responsible network, which CNN is not, would fire Wolf Blitzer for this shameful political spin, acting as a Democrat Party hack rather than the straight news anchor he’s supposed to be.
