At this point, one is almost not surprised by anything put out by the fake news network, in particular public disservices such as CNN and MSNBC. The key word is almost. As CNN may have managed to stun the most diehard cynics yet with its most recent “expert” featured.
“Dr.” Bandy X. Lee, who CNN openly highlighted as one of their “reliable” sources on the network, actually dedicated part of her social media feed to how superior Hitler is over Trump.
The kicker? She posted the following on Monday, right before the official election today.
“Donald Trump is not an Adolf Hitler. At least Hitler improved the daily life of his followers, had discipline, and required more of himself to gain the respect of his followers. Even with the same pathology, there are varying degrees of competence.” [Source: The Daily Wire]
That is correct. This “expert” was selected to speak during prime time hour on a network that routinely compared Trump to Hitler from 2016 onwards, with the implication being that Trump was not only the worst president of all time, but also the most dangerous.
That same exact network has decided that Hitler is a more acceptable leader than Trump, as out of all the “experts” available at its disposal, apparently Ms. Lee was their best option.
And for those who may attempt to defend CNN by saying the network did not know about her views in advance, they are out of luck. Like a typical leftist that remains curiously untouched by Twitter, Ms. Lee had also proclaimed her Hitler-praising views across social media well before her appearance on CNN.
In other words, CNN knew well in advance exactly what they were signing up for by having Ms. Lee appear during primetime “news” hour.
Perhaps one of the most frightening aspects of this mind-bogglingly bad decision is the fact that CNN actually had an ultra-leftist audience for this garbage. That is just how sick those afflicted with Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS) are.
Ultra-leftist America-haters actually watch and praise the type of garbage that routinely constitutes “news” for the left, also known as anti-American propaganda to anyone with even a modicum of critical thinking skills left.
Speaking of critical thinking, Ms. Lee was also a signatory to an open letter (predictably) published in The New York Times in 2017, which asserted that Trump’s intolerance towards different viewpoints.
“Mr. Trump’s speech and actions demonstrate an inability to tolerate views different from his own, leading to rage reactions. His words and behavior suggest a profound inability to empathize. Individuals with these traits distort reality to suit their psychological state, attacking facts and those who convey them (journalists, scientists).
In a powerful leader, these attacks are likely to increase, as his personal myth of greatness appears to be confirmed. We believe that the grave emotional instability indicated by Mr. Trump’s speech and actions makes him incapable of serving safely as president.” [Source: The Daily Wire]
The above is almost comical, if it weren’t so pathetic. So, let’s get this straight. Trump has “an inability to tolerate views different from his own.” On top of that, he is also prone to flying into “rage reactions” when presented with different views.
Last time anyone checked, it has been neither Trump nor his supporters who descend into “grave emotional instability” upon being presented with different viewpoints. On the contrary, all the leftist lunatics from New York to Portland who are susceptible to “rage reactions.”
Unless, of course, blinding police and viciously beating Trump supporters is not an act of “rage” by fake news media standards. Since Hitler is apparently more acceptable than Trump, guess it wouldn’t be.
These are the types of people supposed to lead America into the future?
Even worse, Lee removed her tweet (curiously, once again, Twitter didn’t feel the need to censor her), yet, like a typical leftist, she couldn’t simply remove the tweet and apologize for her despicable lack of judgment (not to mention a basic moral compass).
She complained that her post was supposed to be “thought provoking,” and she also complained about people being upset by her post. On top of that, she went as far to compare Hitler’s death toll to Trump’s supposed death toll.
“If we cannot look at parallels in history and learn from them, we are truly poised to repeat it,” Lee went on. “I say so in heartbreak for the 11+ million lives lost, not in their minimization (currently, we are looking at 7 billion at risk, without exaggeration if we soberly thought of it).” [Source: Fox News]
Ah. So Hitler “only” killed 11 million, whereas Trump can apparently kill 7 billion. Now the message is clear. Clearly terrifying, that is.
And for that matter, exactly which “parallels” is Ms. Lee speaking of? Is Trump attempting to take over Europe (or any other region) by force? No, on the contrary, he’s been nominated by a few countries for the Nobel Peace Prize.
Not much of a “parallel” between Hitler and Trump in that regard.
For someone who goes by “Dr.” and works at Yale, is Ms. Lee truly incapable of distinguishing between a violent, utterly incomprehensible genocide spearheaded by one of history’s greatest psychopaths and a manufactured Chinese virus that no country has been able to get a handle of? For that matter, when is Trump suddenly responsible for 7 billion? Isn’t the left always screaming that America shouldn’t be the world police?
Regardless, CNN’s abysmal choice of a “mental health expert” the day before the election was another gargantuan boondoggle on their part.
Hopefully, Americans will very shortly have a strong sense of who will really lead the nation in the next four years, and it won’t be a leader who would ever tolerate the intolerant views of such an “expert.”
God help us all if Democrat “experts” like this are used to guide America’s future.
