Posted on 12/07/2018 8:48:45 AM PST by rktman
International human rights attorney Amal Clooney accused President Trump of putting the lives of journalists in danger with his rhetoric in a speech at the United Nations Correspondents Association Awards this week.
She said that journalists were under attack, in autocratic regimes from North Korea to the Philippines to Hungary.
The U.S. president has given such regimes a green light and labeled the press in this country the enemy of the people, she argued.
President Trump has used and tweeted the enemy of the people label about media he considers to be fake news.
And of course, two months ago, Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi walked into a consulate in Istanbul, and was brutally tortured to death, Clooney added.

Can someone get this horse face a bag of oats? Lets give her mouth something to do other than spew Trump hate
She’s be a nobody if Clooney hadn’t married her.
The Clooneys were ranting and raving about the illegal camp they had to pass down the road from their Italian villa. Some animals are more equal than others.
Ask the people what they think of the press.
Much like Obama saw America as the cause of all of the problems in the world.
But it makes no difference to them. Trump's got "orange" hair so he must be at fault.
But to the point. The media in this country are enemies of the people.
They are in bed with the party opposing Trump.
Horsefeathers. One of my earliest memories in AZ was investigative reporter Don Bolles getting blown up. That was in the ‘70’s.
Orange man bad.
Okay, but what does his wife think?
Yeah, their precious Lake Como hideaway. What’s the word? Schadenfreude? God’s gonna get me for this.
I got occasional editorials printed in my local rag many moons ago. Does that mean I’m also a “journalist”, and entitled to all the Special People protections??
...and yet, NO ONE is attacking journalists!
Unless you count antifa storming Carlson’s house.
Funny how the lefties run interference for the other side not doing what they actually do
Publishing an article now and then was supposed to provide invicible armor for terrorists. The totalitarian left is apoplectic that the premise was proven false.
After all "Thou shalt not bear False Witness"
Anal is a big Muslim Brotherhood supporter as was her family.
So I suppose that when Saudis killed Bin Ladin’s so called reporter friend its Trump’s fault? Typical liberal logic.
Just another Loonie Cloony
"...wonder what the Nazi collaborator would look like bald and tatted"
The following is submitted for contemplation in light of current events:
“Springfield, Ills, April 6, 1859
Messrs. Henry L. Pierce, & others.
Your kind note inviting me to attend a Festival in Boston, on the 13th. Inst. in honor of the birth-day of Thomas Jefferson, was duly received. My engagements are such that I can not attend.
Bearing in mind that about seventy years ago, two great political parties were first formed in this country, that Thomas Jefferson was the head of one of them, and Boston the head-quarters of the other, it is both curious and interesting that those supposed to descend politically from the party opposed to Jefferson should now be celebrating his birthday in their own original seat of empire, while those claiming political descent from him have nearly ceased to breathe his name everywhere.
Remembering too, that the Jefferson party were formed upon its supposed superior devotion to the personal rights of men, holding the rights of property to be secondary only, and greatly inferior, and then assuming that the so-called democracy of to-day, are the Jefferson, and their opponents, the anti-Jefferson parties, it will be equally interesting to note how completely the two have changed hands as to the principle upon which they were originally supposed to be divided.
The democracy of to-day hold the liberty of one man to be absolutely nothing, when in conflict with another man’s right of property. Republicans, on the contrary, are for both the man and the dollar; but in cases of conflict, the man before the dollar.
I remember once being much amused at seeing two partially intoxicated men engage in a fight with their great-coats on, which fight, after a long, and rather harmless contest, ended in each having fought himself out of his own coat, and into that of the other. If the two leading parties of this day are really identical with the two in the days of Jefferson and Adams, they have perfomed the same feat as the two drunken men.
But soberly, it is now no child’s play to save the principles of Jefferson from total overthrow in this nation.
One would start with great confidence that he could convince any sane child that the simpler propositions of Euclid are true; but, nevertheless, he would fail, utterly, with one who should deny the definitions and axioms. The principles of Jefferson are the definitions and axioms of free society.
And yet they are denied and evaded, with no small show of success.
One dashingly calls them “glittering generalities”; another bluntly calls them “self evident lies”; and still others insidiously argue that they apply only to “superior races.”
These expressions, differing in form, are identical in object and effect—the supplanting the principles of free government, and restoring those of classification, caste, and legitimacy. They would delight a convocation of crowned heads, plotting against the people. They are the van-guard—the miners, and sappers—of returning despotism.
We must repulse them, or they will subjugate us.
This is a world of compensations; and he who would be no slave, must consent to have no slave. Those who deny freedom to others, deserve it not for themselves; and, under a just God, can not long retain it.
All honor to Jefferson—to the man who, in the concrete pressure of a struggle for national independence by a single people, had the coolness, forecast, and capacity to introduce into a merely revolutionary document, an abstract truth, applicable to all men and all times, and so to embalm it there, that to-day, and in all coming days, it shall be a rebuke and a stumbling-block to the very harbingers of re-appearing tyranny and oppression.
Your obedient Servant
Re-read, please, the following words, and think of the Progressives’ demand for conformity of speech and expression—a totalitarian demand typical of totalitarian regimes: “These expressions, differing in form, are identical in object and effectthe supplanting the principles of free government, and restoring those of classification, caste, and legitimacy. They would delight a convocation of crowned heads, plotting against the people. They are the van-guardthe miners, and sappersof returning despotism.
“We must repulse them, or they will subjugate us.
“This is a world of compensations; and he who would be no slave, must consent to have no slave. Those who deny freedom to others, deserve it not for themselves; and, under a just God, can not long retain it.” - A. Lincoln
Maybe she and George should take a stroll through downtown London and get back to us later.
Thanks for the correction.
Journalist put plenty of people’s lives in danger with their awful reporting
