Accuracy in Media

Highlighting the anti-Trump liberal sentiment during this commencement (i.e. college graduation) season, CNN’s Fareed Zakaria said that liberals say that they are tolerant, but their recent actions say the opposite.

He pointed to the walkout protest by about one hundred Notre Dame students during Vice President Mike Pence’s commencement address, violent protests directed at Charles Murray, and boos during Betsy DeVos’s speech at Bethune-Cookman University.

Zakaria criticized the liberals for not protecting the freedom of thought on allegedly-liberal-minded (i.e. open-minded) college campuses. He called it “an attitude of self-righteousness.”

This take is not a hot take, but a common sense take by Zakaria.

    Liberals claims they want open borders, no more nationalities or flags, no labels for people, no gender identities for anyone and one world sameness for everyone, the age old selling points of communism everywhere. EXCEPT, as soon as they got any kind of voice they started to group up, they gave themselves labels of BLM and LGBTQ and OCCUPY, they began to circle the wagons when challenged by anyone, demanded protections from other points of view and started to attack verbally and physically anyone who disagreed with them. They of course refuse to acknowledge they are the hypocritical, crazy, intolerant, bigots they accuse everyone else of being. Despite, just as Obama was, being so sure of their own genius, they are less evolved than than chimps, since some chimps are capable of self awareness.

    It’s rare that someone on the Clinton News Network gets it right, but Fareed, for once, got it right on this one. He came to his senses; let’s hope he doesn’t lose them again with his next report.

    Leftists say they believe in freedom of speech… but only that which dovetails / is in lockstep with their own opinions. Stray from that and they become fascists. UC Berkeley is just the tip of the hypocrisy iceberg.

    So sorry Fareed does not see that the problem runs deeper than self-righteousness. It is scary just how much liberal ideology and philosophy has changed since Obama came on the scene. Having lived under the administration of 10 presidents and being an independent, I do believe sincerely Obama will go down in history as the worst president in American history. Obama did more to destroy this beautiful and glorious country in 8 years than any other person. (Tears, tears, tears))

    I still have a lot of respect for Fareed Zakaria, even though he’s an often, outspoken anti-Trump commentator, but he always explains himself for the whys of his statements. I only wish other anti-Trump protagonists would do the same rather than just making outrageous, vicious, hate-filled comments with very few facts to back them up. Huntley and Brinkley, where are you in our time of need?

    How Fareed Zakaria got a Sunday show is beyond me.

  • TellTheTruth-2

    LOL .. Hi Fareed.

  • TellTheTruth-2

    Actually it was his ZioCON/Communist masters who groomed him at the University of Chicgago and installed him in office.

    At least one seems to have a clue about reality. Most socialist d3emocrats appear to have a “1984” Orwellian mindset. They change or define words to suite themselves (rewrite the dictionary). They try to change or reinvent history and even current events. They support freedom of speech but only if it agrees with their own views. They use what ever tactics they can (to include violence) to shut down any opposition. They are disrespectful of our nation an d all that it stands for.

    I find that in my life under 10 presidents that F. Rosevelt, Kennedy, Johnson, Clinton and Obama have uplifted this country to new heights. I am not stuck in the past of prejudices, illogical religious concepts, and aversion to reality but welcome our ever expanding knowledge and freedoms.

    This is the first time that Zacarias has ever criticized the Left.Usually he is a mouthpiece for them.

  • glencove

    Agree strongly!

  • glencove

    Fared always seems to complement Obama.
