Harmeet Dhillon Appears on FNC’s ‘The Ingraham Angle’ To Discuss the Left Rushing To Blame NZ Massacre on Trump
According to Dhillon:
It’s become a response in the media to the left and the mainstream media to blame the president for anything. I almost expect if Dana Bash heard it in her ear that, “are aliens attacking the United States or attacking the Earth?” She would say that this is related to Trump’s foreign policy. They have a knee-jerk reaction to that, but that’s corrosive. Their words matter. We hear them blaming the president for his words. It’s reflexive blame and not looking at the problem is what’s at the heart of what’s going on. We have become so divided. The media is not hoping to bring us together and help with us understanding, but rather tearing us apart. It’s exactly what this terrorist wanted in this situation. His manifesto was seated with references to cultural issues and cultural disputes, and naming the president and people who support him, so they took the bait and they are doing exactly what the terrorists wanted.
It’s demagoguery [on Kirsten’s statement on CNN]. There is no other word for it. In my piece, I pointed out that two major attacks happened on U.S. Soil against people of faith in Charleston, against Christian in Wisconsin while President Obama was the president. Nobody blamed Obama for that and they shouldn’t. It’s not the president’s fault if we have haters, if we have disintegration of fellowship in our society and troubled people doing these types of things. We need to confront the root causes and not look at convenient targets. They are doing a big disservice to the president, to the president’s supporters, but in the face of this grieving, when we should be trying to come together as human beings, of all people of faith and all people in this world, to create this division, it’s despicable. It’s not, I’m sure, what some of them thought they went into journalism for, but that is exactly what they are doing.
This is Trump derangement syndrome. While it is — on a day when so many people lost their lives and we have these types of cultural divisions and the terrorists wanted this, to see our American journalists doing exactly what he wanted is disappointing. Their initial reaction, they move past it and try to look at what really happened here and bring us closer together and not look for convenient scapegoats.
