Wow, it took CNN and Christiane Amanpour for us to actually have a little respect for James Comey

Former FBI Director James Comey is literally a joke these days as far as social media goes … he likes to have cryptic pictures of himself taken looking away from the camera at … something. A corn field, a highway, the ocean, whatever. His mind is in a deep state.
But we have to give James Comey props for calling out an idiotic question asked by CNN’s Christiane Amanpour — the journalist who, after President Trump’s election, summoned other journalists from their eight-year slumber to “commit to real reporting” in a world in which journalism and democracy were in “mortal peril.”
Well, she was right about journalism being in mortal peril, and the ones trying hardest to kill it off completely all seem to work for CNN. Watch Amanpour ask Comey if perhaps the FBI should have “shut down” some of Trump’s campaign rhetoric, seeing as it was “dangerous.”



CNN's @camanpour asks @Comey if he should've used the FBI to censor "lock her up" chants because they amount to "hate speech." She also says the chants could be "dangerous."

Comey reminds her that's not how we do things in the United States. https://dailycaller.com/2019/04/02/cnn-christine-amanpour-fbi-james-comey-lock-her-up/ 

Again, props to Comey for shutting her down, and explaining that it’s not the role of government to censor speech.
Huh. Well, stopped clocks are occasionally correct too. Good on @Comey for remembering some basic civics.

And someone make a note to never ever give @camanpour any power.

Lock people up for chanting “lock her up” because it is perceived as hate speech? You would think that journalists who “embody” the First Amendment would understand why important that sanctity of that principle is. Et tu @camanpour???


And for CNN, the 2019 thing is to try still to undo the 2016 thing somehow.
Frightening when a reporter asks about the benefits of shutting down speech offensive to her favored candidate.

He @camanpour - you think you’re going to bring your euro-trash statist control over free speech to the America? If you even dream of censoring free speech in the USA you better wake up and apologize. GFY.

She's forgetting this is America and not Europe! We still have free speech here, partly because we still have the 2A here as well!πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ

And she would be right at the front of the line screeching about the first amendment if anyone suggested that she should perhaps not say something.

Free speech for me, but not for thee.
