What goes around, comes around. Just ask CNN, whose Atlanta headquarters was vandalized and destroyed by the same rioters that the left-wing network constantly inflames with its nonstop race-baiting.
Protests erupted outside CNN’s Atlanta headquarters on Friday amid nationwide riots decrying the death of George Floyd, a black Minneapolis man who was murdered by dirty cop Derek Chauvin. Chauvin was arrested yesterday and charged with third-degree murder and manslaughter.
An angry mob gathered outside the CNN office in Atlanta, smashing windows and spray-painting over the CNN sign while shouting “F*ck CNN!”
Several thugs also hurled exploding firecrackers into the lobby and reportedly shot BB guns. At one point, rioters jumped on top of the CNN sign while triumphantly holding a “Black Lives Matter” flag.
In response to the mayhem, rapper Killer Mike (an Atlanta native) said CNN has only itself to blame for the riots.
“I love CNN,” Killer Mike said at a press conference. “But what I’d like to say to CNN right now is: Karma’s a mother. STOP FEEDING FEAR AND ANGER EVERY DAY! Stop making people so fearful. Give them hope!”
A CNN reporter tweeted disturbing videos of windows being smashed and police cars being vandalized and set on fire by thugs chanting “F*ck CNN!”

Turning Point USA’s Benny Johnson pointed out that even as CNN reporters were being heckled and attacked and its Atlanta headquarters was being destroyed, the left-wing network downplayed the violence because it didn’t fit its race-baiting narrative that white people are the problem.
“This is true gaslighting,” Johnson tweeted. “CNN reporter on the ground in Minneapolis frantically insisting that the protesters are “peaceful” and “merry” as the same protesters tell him to go f*ck himself on live TV and throw bottles at him. Meanwhile, Atlanta CNN HQ burns.”

CNN’s Democratic opinion host Don Lemon constantly blames white people for all the problems in the world (even as he’s married to a white man).
However, Don — dubbed the “dumbest man in television” — didn’t have a critical word to say against the rioters who defaced his employer’s Atlanta headquarters.

Similarly, sanctimonious CNN pundits like Chris Cuomo (a.k.a. – Fredo Cuomo) did not criticize the Black Lives Matter and Antifa rioters for not practicing social distancing or wearing masks during their violent rampages across the country.
Keep in mind that left-wing panic pimps who were stoking terror over the coronavirus repeatedly scolded peaceful white protesters for wanting to go back to work.
A Black Trump supporter remarked: “Anyone else notice how the liberal media is no longer concerned about “social distancing” and are encouraging these riots across the country. Just a few days ago they were accusing Reopen America protesters of spreading the virus by peacefully protesting.”

Former CIA official analyst Buck Sexton tweeted: “The media has gone from COVID-shaming groups of 3 or more people peacefully enjoying some sunshine on the beach to saying not a word about the COVID risks from riotous mobs densely packed and often unmasked, as they burn down a neighborhood. It was never about your safety.”

All of the violent riots that occurred this week happened in left-wing, Democrat-run cities. That caused Ricochet editor Jon Gabriel to wonder: “Why are Democrat-run cities so violent?”
