Posted on 06/30/2016 11:57:23 AM PDT by Tolerance Sucks Rocks
CNN's Christiane Amanpour took her left-leaning, pro-European Union activism to a new level on Tuesday during an interview of pro-Brexit politician Daniel Hannan. Amanpour, who recently blasted the referendum as an example of "xenophobia", tried to implicate the British member of the European Parliament as somehow partially responsible for supposed post-vote "hate crimes." Hannan didn't take her clear bias sitting down, however: "You guys have been shouting 'racist' so long, you're not listening to what we were actually saying...if I was relying on CNN...I would think that this was nativist vote, a protectionist vote. It's the opposite." [video below]
The anchor began her unprofessional interrogation of the Brexit supporter by accusing the guest and his allies of not having a plan after the vote: "The question is being asked, what is the plan? And we're not hearing it from the main Brexit leaders." Hannan answered, in part, by noting that "48 percent of British people voted for no change....And so, we may have to temper what we're doing, and go for a more gradual and more phased repatriation of power, while leaving some of the existing stuff in place."
Amanpour pounced after this response, and contended that anti-E.U. activists were now backtracking in the wake of the referendum: "I'm hearing...a very much softer, gentler version of what you proposed during the campaign temper some of the stuff like what? Like immigration? Because you yourself have, sort of, stepped back." This sparked an extended exchange between the politician and the purported journalist:

Not an interview; a bullying.
These woman should have been immediately beaten for being in public not wearing her potato sack.
Journalists do not interview people in order to reveal facts.
Journalists put on a display to manipulate an audience and advance an ideology of death and destruction.
I’ve become convinced that its all satanic.
Amanpour needs an orientation vacation in a EU “refugee” center, although I doubt anything would change her world view.
Liberal heads exploding. Such a wonderful sight.
Just wait until Trump wins. Maybe mass suicides.
So don’t play with him, ‘cause you’re playing with fire.
If I think really, REALLY, hard, I can remember when journalist reported the news, rather than just express their own personal bias about events.
The Left is in full panic over rejection of their NWO!
“Ive become convinced that its all satanic.”
You can tell Satan is getting impatient with this Brexit curb on his one-world scheme as he literally seems to want to jump out of Amanpour and strangle Hannan till he surrenders!
Notice the people who are condemning Brexit lived in gated communities, away from everyday life. The left is good at pretending to be like the ordinary Joe, while swimming in riches.
Juan Willams should live on the south side of Chicago for a month. See how quick his attitude changes.
She’s a condescending arrogant bitch with an agenda.I don’t know why he would agree to an interview with such a person as her.
Today’s headline in the local rag’s financial page: Warren proposes using anti trust against large monopolies like comcast, google etc.
A total whole page devoted to pocohantas rant.
Meanwhile, months ago when Trump made a similar proposal, crickets.
Why does Amanpour have her panties all in a wad over it anyway? Reporters shouldn't get so emotional.
Hannan answered, in part, by noting that “48 percent of British people voted for no change....And so, we may have to temper what we’re doing, and go for a more gradual and more phased repatriation of power, while leaving some of the existing stuff in place.”
Red flag here. Hannan is a Never Trump snake and not to be trusted. He’s already talked about not limiting immigration to GB. Make no mistake: there are free traitor corportists like Hannan on the Leave side also.
Because that's what they do, they follow Obama and Hillary like lemmings.
AMANPOUR: Fifty-seven percent rise in hate crimes since Brexit 57 percent rise in hate crimes, according to your police
HANNAN: Oh, come on! In in 48 hours?
AMANPOUR: According to the police here I'm not making it up. I'm just asking you, are you concerned
I think that we can readily see this to be what it really is, a harridan harangue by Ms Amanpour! Great 'journalism' CNN, glad you are keeping up to the 'high' standard set by Ms Crowley in the 2012 President Debate!
