‘Shahs of Sunset’ Christiane Amanpoor Mocks ‘Poor Me’ America

Celebrity, Donald Trump, Foreign Policy, Iran, Journalism, Media, Race

In ways intellectual, Christiane Amanpoor is impoverished. The famous CNN anchor, however, is not poor. Amanpoor’s net worth is $12.5 Million. She’s lived, loved and worked among the upper echelons her entire life, in her birth place of Iran, too. Amanpoor is more authentically “Shahs of Sunset” than ordinary America.

Read how Amapoor conflates America (“rich”) with Americans (many of whom are awfully poor).

Via Media Matters comes Christian Amanpoor’s take on Trump’s America. She apparently is unfamiliar with white, working-class demographics:

CHRISTIANE AMANPOUR: [Donald Trump] always comes back to the dollars and cents. So, America’s broke, therefore, America’s weak. These are not true, right, so everybody else has to pony up. This is a businessman’s view of the world, presumably. But it doesn’t make sense when he talks about, for instance, NATO. NATO is not obsolete. Yes, NATO was created 60-plus years ago in response to the Soviet threat. But still, NATO is the organizing principle by which American and the Western democracies’ security is taken care of. And NATO is not just about the United States putting money in. It’s about all the other countries putting in their two percent of GDP as well. Now, they don’t all, that’s true, and America wants them to put more than they do right now. But a good number, nearly half of the NATO countries, put their two percent of GDP in. And the other countries do certain things that America doesn’t do. Now, America, because it is the most powerful military in the world, does a lot of the heavy lifting. You know, you have a military operation and America will do the troop lifting, for instance. Or it will do, you know, many of those kinds of things. But many of the other countries, whether it’s in Afghanistan or elsewhere, pick up a huge lot of the burden as well.

BROOKE BALDWIN (HOST): What about his point on nukes, how he said specifically he would be open to allowing Japan and South Korea to build their own nuclear arsenals so they can protect themselves from North Korea and China?

AMANPOUR: Well again, that puts on its head decades of the United States and its Pacific allies’ security relationship, and this is one of the first times we’ve heard a serious candidate, if not the first time, who will probably be the nominee for the Republican Party, put that forward, and it’s not a Republican sort of point of view that I’ve ever heard in previous elections. This poor me, America’s weak kind of thing is not the way Republicans generally see their view, and Americans’ view in the world. So one of the reasons why Japan does not have a nuclear arsenal is because of the horror that Japan committed during the Second World War. So Japan has been kind of forced to be a pacifist, pretty much, state. It has a military but it’s not an offensive military capability. And so there was a tradeoff. OK, you trade that off. And if there’s a problem, we’ll come to your rescue. But in the meantime, you’ll help us keep the peace in many other ways in that region. So that’s one of the reasons why Japan doesn’t have nukes. And then of course, well, when it comes to ISIS and all the other things, you need allies to be able to go and help you. [CNN, CNN Newsroom with Brooke Baldwin, 3/28/16]

UPDATED: Traitors Ted Cruz & John Kasich Use Orwellian Speak To Tarnish Trump

Constitution, Donald Trump, Elections, Free Speech, Gender, Individual Rights, Race, Republicans

The presidential aspirations of Ted Cruz and John Kasich ought to be sealed, OVER, after both blamed Donald Trump, using the “toxic environment” Orwellian Speak, for Chicago mob violence, the kind that burnt down Ferguson and will burn down this country. (Related “Ferguson: Thankful For The Founding Fathers’ Legal Legacy.”)

Said Kasich (Dr. Phil of politics):

Before Trump spoke in Dayton on Saturday, Ohio Gov. John Kasich said the real estate mogul had created a “toxic environment.”
“There is no place for this,” he said. “There is no place for a national leader to prey on the fears of the people who live in our country.”

Said traitor Ted Cruz, via The Conservative Treehouse:

The responsibility starts at the top. The candidate is responsible for the culture of the campaign. Trump disrespects voters, encourages violence and assaults the press.

There you have it. Like little liberals, Republicans capitulate to and psychologize about mob violence and mob rule.

UPDATE (3/13):

No Place For Trump’s Older, Whiter America

Donald Trump, Left-Liberalism, Media, Race, Racism

An old guy at a Trump rally for once feels like someone is standing up for him. He gets carried away at a generally orderly Trump rally and thumps a young black hooligan, who’s being escorted out and is extending the middle finger to the Trump audience. The feminized, crazed media fret for days over the intolerable “violence” perpetrated by John McGraw, 78, against dreadlocks Rakeem Jones. By failing to humor the media’s pet protester groups, Trump is said to be fomenting fascism.

Next, 9,000 of the same Rakeem-Jones type hooligans—they’ll brook no disagreement and no change in their privileged, forever-oppressed minority status—converge on a Trump rally to be held at the University of Illinois, Chicago. Trump is forced to cancel the rally. One Farris Ahmad celebrates his victory over little Valerie Schmitt, 65, a Trump supporter from Naperville, Ill. Ms. Schmitt, 65, “teared up as she watched the protesters celebrate”:

“I’m so hurt, I’m so upset — we were so excited. I just can’t believe there’s that many people that would come in here and destroy this.’

Wake up, lady.
