Bozell & Graham Column: Treason? A Common Liberal Accusation – Watching.ml

toobin 15 - Bozell & Graham Column: Treason? A Common Liberal Accusation - Watching.ml

President Trump heard somebody yell “treason” within the viewers at a speech in Cinncinati as he talked about the Democratic pouting on the State of the Union handle. “Somebody said, treasonous,” he mused. “I mean, yeah, I guess, why not?” 


The media outrage was summarized by CNN analyst Jeffrey Toobin: “It is so grotesque! It is so appalling…I just wonder what the cost is, in terms of the future of our civic discourse!”

At this level we must always simply begin laughing on the press. These self-appointed watchdogs of the “civic discourse” weren’t a bit outraged when liberals tossed that T-phrase like a Frisbee at anybody criticizing President Obama. Here are just some examples.

June 11, 2014: CNN anchor Carol Costello introduced on leftist Cliff Schecter to advertise his article suggesting leaders of the National Rifle Association have been “treasonous and murderous.” Costello might solely add: “Um, I don’t know. That’s really strong.”

July 9, 2014: MSNBC host Michael Eric Dyson went ballistic over Sarah Palin’s suggestion that Obama be impeached: “The President’s push towards positive and crucial change was met with treasonous accusations.”

June 27, 2015: The Daily Beast posted an article on dissenters within the Supreme Court’s homosexual-marriage determination:“Did The Four Dissenting Justices In Gay Marriage Case Just Suggest Treason?” Contributor Jay Michaelson instructed anybody criticizing the courtroom majority created a “shocking display of treason.”

October 1, 2015: Leftist radio talker Thom Hartmann was incensed that anybody might take into account Kevin McCarthy for House speaker, citing some Republican inauguration-evening conspiracy to disclaim Obama any success. “They have committed treason. Maybe not the kind of treason that is elevated to the level of a prosecution or firing squad….a moral treason.”

In reality, this liberal treason speak simply stored going below Trump, however he grew to become the perpetrator. 

March 2, 2017: CNN contributor Maria Cardona, on Attorney General Jeff Sessions: “He knows he is smack in the middle of this investigation having to do with perhaps treasonous activities by the Trump campaign.”

March 28, 2017: MSNBC anchor Kate Snow introduced on liberal historian Douglas Brinkley, selling his quote: “You told the Washington Post last week that, quote, ‘There’s a smell of treason in the air,’ when it comes to this [Russia] investigation.”

May 11, 2017, On ABC’s “The View,” co-host Joy Behar screeched concerning the press being barred from a Trump assembly with Russian overseas minister Sergei Lavrov: “This is treason to me! This is un-American!”

June 25, 2017: Hollywood director Rob Reiner uncorked treason as a Twitter hashtag. “When Fox says that DT colluding with the enemy is not a crime, the fight to save Democracy is now an all out war. US-Stay strong. #Treason”

July 18, 2017: Former MSNBC star Keith Olbermann tweeted in reply to the president asserting most individuals in politics would have met a overseas official to get unfavourable info on their opponent: “Sure! Benedict Arnold would have. And Aaron Burr. And Charles Lindbergh. And Quisling. And Marshal Petain. That’s politics! Annnnnd treason!”

Speaking of “grotesque” and “appalling” overstatements, let’s seek the advice of the accuser himself, Jeffrey Toobin, responding on CNN on January three, 2018 to Steve Bannon suggesting Donald Trump Jr was treasonous: “The idea that people involved in an American presidential campaign would greedily reach out to the Russian government for dirt on their opponent, as Donald Trump Jr. and company did, does feel treasonous in a sort of colloquial sense.”

Liberals are the worst hypocrites on “civic discourse.”
