CNN serves up ‘reformed’ white nationalist to swear Trump’s ‘nationalist’ label is a ‘bull horn’ to racists

The diminutive white nationalist movement in the United States that few knew even existed found itself thrust onto the national stage by the liberal media in its quest to destroy President Donald Trump.

A handful of personalities looking to take advantage of the limelight gladly perform for the anti-Trump media, to include a “former” white supremacist peddling a book.

CNN, which all but dedicates 24/7 coverage to denigrating the president, ignores the fact that his oldest daughter, Ivanka, converted to Judaism before marrying husband Jared Kushner to suggest that Trump is a driving force behind a “rising tide of hate” that includes anti-Semitic behavior.

Confident that their viewers are too stupid to see the ploy at hand, the network gave “reformed” white supremacist Christian Picciolini a national stage to indict Trump.

Noting that when “somebody with power gives them words that back up what they believe,” Picciolini said “there’s a certain subsegment of these extremist groups that will act.”

It’s worth noting that Picciolini is the co-founder of Life After Hate, a Chicago-based nonprofit “dedicated to combating right-wing domestic extremists,” as the New York Times described the group’s purpose in Aug. 2017.

The group was awarded a $400,000 federal grant by the Obama administration, with then-Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson praising their work, but the grant would later be rescinded by Trump administration, the paper reported.

The Times cited “a former government official with knowledge of the grant,” to say it was revoked in response to tweets from Picciolini that were critical of the president.

Not content with subtleties, CNN host S.E. Cupp, who’s considered a conservative, got specific, naming Trump as she asked her guest if white supremacists care what the president of the United States says or doesn’t say?

Picciolini, who left the movement 30 years ago, said that while these groups may not be inclined to support somebody in government, “everything he’s saying is in line with their policies, with their beliefs and we see white supremacists like David Duke who openly support Donald Trump’s policies.”

Cupp, nodding in agreement with her guest, then played a clip of Trump saying he’s a “nationalist” — she failed to offer any context on the comment, that he was talking about love of country and later denied that there was any racist connotation.

“What did you think when you heard that?” she asked her guest, who hit the softball pitch out of the park to the glee of the anti-Trump network.

“I mean, it was loud like a bull horn to me, I didn’t hear a dog whistle,” Picciolini said. “And what I heard was his call to white nationalists saying that I’m behind you.”

For liberals who hate America, loving your country is seen as a racist act.

He proceeded to then link Trump to a series of recent events, to include the shooting at the Pittsburgh synagogue, while Cupp there like a toad on a stump.

“Since then, we’ve seen four tragedies occur,” he said. “We’ve had the pipe bombings, we’ve had the tragedy in Pittsburgh at the synagogue. In Louisville — in Kentucky, we saw two African-Americans killed by a white supremacist and there are reports today that the shooting in Florida was actually committed by somebody who was far right leaning with white supremacist ideals who’s part of the involuntary celibate movement.”

“So this is going to continue and people need to be held accountable for their words.”

The last two incidents named by Picciolini are still under investigation and it’s unclear at this point what the motives were.
