President Donald Trump posted a tweet recently in response to the London Bridge terrorist attack. He said, “We need to be smart, vigilant and tough. We need the courts to give us back our rights. We need the Travel Ban as an extra level of safety!”
To say this logical, measured statement didn’t sit well with CNN host Reza Aslan would be an understatement. In response, Aslan posted a tweet of his own: “This piece of $#@! is not just an embarrassment to America and a stain on the presidency. He’s an embarrassment to humankind.”
The CNN “journalist” has since removed the tweet and posted an “apology” for his obscene outburst: “I should not have used a profanity to describe the President when responding to his shocking reaction to the #LondonAttacks. My statement: When in the first few minutes of the terror attack in London, the President of the United States tweeted about his travel ban, I lost my cool and responded to him in a derogatory fashion. That’s not like me. I should have used better language to express my shock and frustration at the president’s lack of decorum and sympathy for the victims of London. I apologize for my choice of words.”
What the hell was “shocking” about the president’s reaction to the terrorists killing and maiming dozens of innocent civilians in London? Was it the part where he said, “we need to be smart?” That could be a bit of a stunner after the last 8 years, I guess.
Or perhaps it was the president suggesting we need to be “vigilant and tough” that left Aslan gob-smacked? And, how did Trump exhibit “lack of decorum and sympathy for the victims of London?” He made the statement in defense of the victims and in an attempt to see that innocents everywhere are protected from random slaughter in the future. Lack of decorum would be calling the president a “Piece of sh*t,”…you piece of sh*t.
Reza Aslan is also infamous for sitting down with an Aghori “guru” from a tiny, extremist, cannibalistic Hindu sect on an episode of his CNN show “Believer,” in which he had his face coated in ashes from cremated human bodies while he dined on (cooked) human brain tissue. Oh, and he drank an (alcoholic) drink out of a human skull before “dinner.”
Well, when in Rome, right? Gotta be tolerant and inclusive! That’s all that really matters. Love that multiculturalism!
The Aghori are devotees of the Hindu god Shiva. Orthodox Hindus flatly reject most of their beliefs and practices. Indian-Americans have understandably criticized CNN for highlighting the acts of a cult numbering less than 100 members, averring that it does not represent mainstream Hinduism. Don’t worry, mainstream Hindus, CNN itself is a cult, albeit one comprised of many more members than the Aghori can tout, and isn’t representative of mainstream anything.
At one point, the guru got angry at Aslan, shouting, “I will cut your head off if you keep talking so much.” I know how he feels. The guru also commenced eating his own feces before flinging it at Aslan.
Much like CNN does to its viewers.
