Kellyanne Conway says comedians making religious jokes are the real culprits

Conway Meets Reporters

As I continue to say, Donald Trump, the Republican party and the right-wing media outlets have radicalized these domestic terrorists. Trump is the main one, using the language of dog-whistle anti-Semitism and white supremacy and outright Nazism. Robert Bowers, the terrorist who murdered Jewish people in a Pittsburgh synagogue, was like so many Trump-era terrorists: he left large breadcrumbs on social media, detailing his hatred and his violent viewpoint. He was obsessed with the “migrant caravan” story which Trump has been promoting as a racist scare tactic for the midterms.

Bowers frequently posted about the “migrant caravan,” a group of several thousand refugees walking to the U.S.-Mexico border from Honduras to seek asylum. Preventing refugees in the caravan from entering the United States has been a major talking point among right-wing commentators and President Donald Trump, who has spoken about it in recent pre-midterm election stump speeches.

Bowers’ anti-Semitic posts and his apparent disdain for the caravan are tied to a viral image that appears to show refugees hopping onto the bed of a truck with a Star of David on the side. The image has been widely shared on far-right forums like 4chan and the Russian propaganda operation USA Really. He reposted a screenshot of a video of the caravan that had aired on Fox News, as well as other networks, that does not mention the symbol.

That link is crystal clear: Trump, in conjunction with Fox News and right-wing propaganda sites, spread these conspiracies about the caravan to rile up their racist base. And the racist base listened, and decided to send pipe bombs and load their AR-15 and shoot up houses of worship. But to Trump’s senior advisor Kellyanne Conway, the real culprit is… comedians who make jokes about religion. Yes, she’s trying that. She’s also claiming that the people in the Trump administration are the REAL victims.

Don’t let this a–hole get away with any of this. Jesus, I’m sorry this is such a downer, but I think it’s important to discuss this. Robert Bowers HATED Jewish people. He attacked a house of worship because he had been radicalized by Donald Trump and many others. Enough.

And since he can’t help himself, Kellyanne’s unhinged boss stepped all over her message on Twitter this morning:

I never fail to shiver and feel sick to my stomach whenever he calls the media the “true enemy of the people.” Hug a journalist today, because Trump is giving orders to all of his violent Deplorables to target journalists yet again.

    Well, her boss and this administration are a bad joke and a bunch of clowns ,so I guess we know where to lay the blame

  2. Kitten says:

    So tired of being patronized by these assholes. The incessant, blatant lies they try to force down our throats is just exhausting at this point.

    And this woman is rotting from the inside out–it’s why she looks like that.

    • Lizzie says:

      Precisely. Her face is a religious joke.

    • Esmom says:

      She’s vile. Even more vile is imagining her and/or a group of Trump’s people brainstorming about how they could twist this to blame anyone but themselves. Monsters. I was despairing over the weekend but now I’m enraged again.

    This is The Big Lie. They are actively creating a cult of personality around Trump. Every step they have taken since Trump was first rumored to be running has been to achive this goal. It behooves the entire world for the USA to be absorbed in a civil war (that WILL happen), to have people like Kanye trying to get a Black Nationalist group going, to make white Christians terrified of anyone who even has a slighy tan, and for everyone to think that Trump is the only person they can trust. Buckle up, kids. Anyone who thinks this election cycle will bring good news is delusional and naive. By all means, vote, like you did two years ago when THREE MILLION VOTES DID NOT COUNT. Gerrymandering, fraud, voter suppression and intimidation… We have a criminal government. They will not leave power unless forced out with violence. The military supports Trump, and he is expanding them rapidly. This is a normal part of an historical formula. Until normal people don’t laugh at the idea of SERVING their country as leaders, rather than thinking they are patriots for getting a damn I Voted sticker every few years, we will have people like this causing bombings, shootings, and worse.

    • Giddy says:

      Wow! You state that we are heading toward civil war and that Trump will not leave the government unless forced out with violence. You say that those of us who believe that change can happen through our votes are delusional. That is a very extremist point of view. I hope and pray that you are wrong.

      • BabyJane says:

        IDK… Stallin is basically referencing the Declaration of Independence, so, I kinda believe s/he is right.

  4. Who ARE These People? says:

    Why do any mainstream media outlets still have her on or cover her?

  5. Nicegirl says:

    I’m becoming afraid to tweet articles now; I’m worried for the safety of all journalists.

  6. Eric says:

    Sure Jan.

    Incite the next unhinged MAGAt to unleash a holy hell upon journalists/people of “color”*

    * anyone who isn’t a white “evangelical” racist

  7. RMCB says:

    Coming up with spin is really showing on her. That much ugliness wears one down.

  8. tw says:

    she is vile

  9. Cranberry says:

    She is so vile. I don’t know how she can live with herself or any body else for that matter.

  10. holly hobby says:

    Suckabee is too. She had a presser that basically denied everything and reinforced the media is bad concept. Oh boo hoo I’m sorry you WH staffers can’t eat a taco outside in peace. It must be so much harder than people who’s lives are threatened or were killed by the hill billies they cultivate.
