This was a big weekend for Democrats denying history. First, and most shameful, after doing nothing whatsoever about that Chinese spy balloon they allowed to traverse our entire nation, the Biden Administration sent two senior officials to China (I picture them walking on their knees) to discuss “key issues in the bilateral relationship.”
As this report from Redstate.com notes, they would not comment on whether they would mention to China’s President the fact that they were doing this on the 34th anniversary of the Tiananmen Square massacre. I think I can guess, though, considering they don’t mind visiting even while China continues to engage in the same oppressive tactics by cracking down on protesters in Hong Kong just for trying to commemorate the slaughter in Tiananmen Square that Beijing wants to throw down the memory hole. It’s said that those who can’t remember the past are doomed to repeat it. China doesn’t want anyone to remember the past, and they’re willing to repeat it just to force people to forget it.
Also, CNN’s attempts to become a legitimate news network again are floundering. Conservatives still don’t trust them, while liberals just feel betrayed at not being fed the DNC narrative 24/7. It doesn’t help that they still can’t handle the truth, as evidenced by the way they tried to mark the third anniversary of the BLM/Antifa George Floyd riots by praising their own coverage of them as “unflinching, unrelenting, uncut.” More like “Unbelievable!”
Nick Arama at Redstate.com reminds us that it was CNN that gave us the concept (and the eternal Internet meme) about “fiery, but most peaceful protests.”
Hat tip to Brad Slager at Redstate for coining the perfect phrase for this total rewrite of CNN’s history of riot coverage: “Teargas-lighting.”
