CNN Host Asks Comey If He Should Have Stopped People Who Called to ‘Lock Up’ Hillary, as ‘Hate Speech’

CNN has often likes to push a narrative.

But in something of an astonishing discussion with former FBI Director James Comey, CNN anchor Christiane Amanpour also suggested the concept of the FBI going after and trying to shut down speech which she didn’t like.

Amanpour was talking to Comey about the FBI’s investigation into Hillary Clinton when she spoke about Trump supporters calling to “lock her up” in reference to Hillary Clinton.

From Daily Caller:

“Of course, ‘lock her up’ was a feature of the 2016 Trump campaign,” Amanpour said. “Do you in retrospect wish that people like yourself, the FBI, I mean, the people in charge of law and order, had shut down that language — that it was dangerous potentially, that it could’ve created violence, that it’s kind of hate speech. Should that have been allowed?”

Yikes.

This is America, not Great Britain. We actually have freedom of speech, which one would think that a journalist would know and care about exactly to protect such speech.

Scary that a journalist would actually think that way.

Ironically, however, they don’t see their own hand in creating the perception of President Donald Trump as some form of Russian agent or existential threat to the country, after pushing a false narrative for two years. They don’t view that as wrong or “hate speech.”

Comey of course said that that wasn’t his role to shut down speech, even though he called it “misleading” and “demagoguery.”

No, what it was was frustration at the failure of Comey and his brethren at the FBI and the DOJ to actually do their jobs, given the evidence in the matter.

And everyone who cared about the rule of law was properly concerned about how it was twisted and bent in the case of the investigations of Hillary Clinton and the Trump team.

Fortunately America is not Great Britain, despite the effort by those on the left to try to take us there.
