CNN anchor Jim Acosta made disgusting and dangerous comparisons between right-wing Americans and the Taliban.
Acosta made his comparison during CNN’s “Newsroom” on Saturday, claiming, “Some members of the far-right in this country have apparently decided they will resort to intimidation, and in some cases, even violence to get what they want. They could sweep into power faster than the experts thought possible. Sound familiar? Sort of like an American Taliban. It is starting to look like a combination of theocracy and thugocracy.”
CNN is making no attempt to disguise its disdain for American conservatives in comparing them to literal terrorists who butcher people by the hundreds.
Acosta continued saying, “The leaders of this MAGAban movement, people Marjorie, Madison, and Tucker, they’re not counting on an intelligence failure or a lack of planning on your part. They’re counting on a lack of courage to stand up for your rights in this country. Does that ring a bell? The anti-immigration, anti-democratic, anti-women’s rights forces have all sought these kinds of changes for years, even decades, in this country. Their operation to change America forever is well underway.”
It is worth remembering that liberals like Acosta were the same people who accused former President Trump of creating division in the nation with hateful rhetoric.
Acosta seems to believe that his decision to compare half of America to literal terrorists is somehow different from what he accused President Trump of doing.
