CNN Disrupts RNC to Defend Rioters, ‘We Should Beat This Kid Up’


CNN interrupted Wednesday’s Republican National Committee proceedings four times (compared to the ZERO times they interrupted night three of the DNC), and they did it in the most disgusting of ways. Between consistently shoddy co-host Jake Tapper defending violent riots in Kenosha, Wisconsin, and left-wing activist Van Jones calling for a 17-year-old to be beaten up, the network was unhinged. On top of that, CNN’s mean girls lashed out at female speakers.

During CNN’s longest interruption of either convention (15 minutes and 51 seconds), Tapper delivered breaking information found on the Kenosha shooter’s social media accounts. Suggesting it was something they anticipated “was going to break throughout the night,” Tapper warned that Kyle Rittenhouse was a Trump supporter and wanted birthday money donated to a pro-police nonprofit (click “expand”):

That’s right Wolf. We’re learning that social media accounts believed to belong to the 17-year-old Kenosha shooting suspect, Kyle Rittenhouse portray a young man who has an affinity for guns, who says that he’s pro-police, and who is a supporter of President Trump’s.

A Facebook profile and TikTok bio both refer to the Blue Lives Matter movement, which is a pro-police response to Black Lives Matter. In a post on December 22nd, 2018, Rittenhouse wrote that for his birthday he was asking for donations for a non-profit organization called Humanizing the Badge, along with a post that said the group sought to forge stronger relationships between law enforcement officers and the communities they serve. Videos posted on a TikTok account show individuals taking part in target practice and assembling a long rifle.

So, we’re learning more about this individual who is accused, Wolf, accused of shooting two individuals in Kenosha, two apparent protestors in Kenosha, Wisconsin last night.

Insisting that Rittenhouse had shot “protesters” and not the violent rioters who were caught on multiple cameras attacking him, Tapper moaned about how “Republican officials” were “talking about these protestors in very dehumanizing ways.

Of course, Tapper didn’t care about how he was defended the leftist rioters who were incinerating peoples’ homes and their livelihoods. Instead, he whined about RNC speakers denouncing the leftist mobs:

 

 

We heard Kristi Noem, the governor say today, “Democrat-run cities across this country are being overrun by violent mobs.” We talked — Burgess Owens, “mobs are torch our cities.” I have not heard any tempering of that language…

Tapper then whined about how “the Republican campaign, the Republican convention” were not “adjusting even a little bit their language about protestors seems rather irresponsible.”

Moments after Tapper finished defending the violence, Jones lashed out at Republicans. “But there’s some irresponsible and reckless choices that have been made, I think, by this convention to lift up people who are irresponsible pointing guns at people who are not armed, that is irresponsible,” he said. He was speaking of the McCloskeys, who defended their home from a BLM mob in St. Louis.

He then appeared to call for Rittenhouse to be assaulted:

So I think, tonight, I want to wait, I want to hear from this vice president. My prayer is that he will try to bring us together. My prayer is that the left won’t beat this kid up because he likes Donald Trump. We should beat this kid up because he is doing irresponsible things and has been pulled into an irresponsible movement that the President needs to denounce.

And back in CNN’s second interruption of the night, chief political correspondent Dana Bash mispronounced the name of White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany, calling her “Kelly.” She then decried McEnany and the other female speakers for “trying to soften the President’s edges in a big way” when it came to women voters.

Their last break pushed out a speech from acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell, the first openly-gay cabinet-level official.  

CNN was clearly shifting gears into a more offensive attack strategy halfway through the RNC, and once again being complicit with violence. This is CNN.

This support for violent rioters was made possible because of lucrative sponsorships from Kia, and ClearChoice. Their contact information is linked so you can tell them about what they’re funding.

DANA BASH: That was counselor to the president, Kellyanne Conway. And Abby, I have heard, as I am sure you have covering the Trump administration, Kellyanne try to talk about the President in the way she did just for a national, international audience, as someone who empowers women like her.

But the fact that she decided to put this front and center following Kelly [Kayleigh] McEnany, following other women who are trying to soften the President’s edges in a big way, and try to give permission to female voters who look at the president as crass, as misogynistic, as somebody who may agree with what they believe in policy-wise, but not in terms of how he operates, and not in terms of how he treats women, give them permission to vote for him. Unclear if it’s going to work, but they certainly went all out.

WOLF BLITZER: I want to go back to Jake. I understand, Jake, you’re getting some new information about the shooting suspect in Kenosha, Wisconsin?

JAKE TAPPER: That’s right Wolf. We’re learning that social media accounts believed to belong to the 17-year-old Kenosha shooting suspect, Kyle Rittenhouse portray a young man who has an affinity for guns, who says that he’s pro-police, and who is a supporter of President Trump’s.

A Facebook profile and TikTok bio both refer to the Blue Lives Matter movement, which is a pro-police response to Black Lives Matter. In a post on December 22nd, 2018, Rittenhouse wrote that for his birthday he was asking for donations for a non-profit organization called Humanizing the Badge, along with a post that said the group sought to forge stronger relationships between law enforcement officers and the communities they serve. Videos posted on a TikTok account show individuals taking part in target practice and assembling a long rifle.

So, we’re learning more about this individual who is accused, Wolf, accused of shooting two individuals in Kenosha, two apparent protestors in Kenosha, Wisconsin last night.

And I have say, we’ve known that this was going to break throughout the night. And I wondered if that was going to temper at all some of the language we have heard from Republican officials talking about the mob, talking about these protestors in very dehumanizing ways.

We heard Kristi Noem, the governor say today, “Democrat-run cities across this country are being overrun by violent mobs.” We talked — Burgess Owens, “mobs are torch our cities.” I have not heard any tempering of that language even though—

Look, this individual, if he is guilty, he’s responsible for his crimes. Not any of the individuals he supports including President Trump. But the idea that a supporter of President Trump is accused of killing protestors last night has not resulted in the Republican campaign, the Republican convention adjusting even a little bit their language about protestors seems rather irresponsible.

BLITZER: Yeah, it certainly does.

VAN JONES: But there’s some irresponsible and reckless choices that have been made, I think, by this convention to lift up people who are irresponsible pointing guns at people who are not armed, that is irresponsible.

So I think, tonight, I want to wait, I want to hear from this vice president. My prayer is that he will try to bring us together.
