Nolte: Cillizza's Trump-in-Crosshairs Tweet Is CNN's Latest 'Assassination Dogwhistle' | Breitbart: Chris Cillizza, a far-left staffer at the anti-Trump CNN, claims that a now-deleted tweet of his that flashed what looked like a rifle’s crosshairs over video of President Donald Trump, was an error. For a whole lot of reasons, this is difficult to believe, especially when you look at the basement-rated CNN’s history of “assassination dogwhistles” aimed at the president.
Intent matters, so we must first take a look at what CNN believes. This is fairly easy because time and again and again, CNN has told us that it believes images, rhetoric, and symbols can provoke and be to blame for violence, murder, and even political assassinations. CNN makes no secret of this belief.
