Mainstream Press In Overdrive Over Pentagon Nominee’s “Islamophobic” Tweets

( If there’s one thing the mainstream press doesn’t like, it’s people being elevated to high-profile positions if they’ve said something problematic on Twitter in the past. Their latest meltdown focuses on Army Brig. Gen. (Ret.) Anthony Tata, a Pentagon nominee who has been publicly shamed for old tweets he made about Islam and Obama.

At the beginning of June, President Trump nominated Tata to a role in the Pentagon, serving as a policy adviser. It is the third-highest position at the department and was nominated in part because of his desire to help President Trump bring more troops home from Afghanistan. His is a serious and influential role, and his work will be instrumental in bringing American troops home after years of service. But the press wants him out before he is confirmed by the Senate, which is currently controlled by the Democrats.

At least six Democrats have so far said that they will refuse to approve his nomination because of tweets he made about Muslims and Democrats. CNN unearthed some of the old tweets, where he once called Islam “the most oppressive violent religion” he knows of, and suggested former President Barack Obama was a “terrorist leader.”

Hey, if there’s anyone who might know anything about that, it’s a retired military vet…

Regardless, Tata still apologized for some of the tweets – notably the most controversial one he wrote on July 2, 2018.

“No the point is that Obama is a Muslim who got other countries involved via corporate greed to support a regime (Mullahs) that sponsors anti-West hatred and violence using money US unfroze or gave,” he said. “He made no secret of his belief that a weaker America made for a stronger world.”

I wonder how many Americans would disagree with that?

It prompted a giant backlash from the New York Times, Politico, and CNN who have produced several reports on him, likely egging on congressional leaders to refuse to nominate him. Interestingly, though, none of these outlets have discussed comments made by presumptive Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden that are even more racially inflammatory.

Let’s not forget that back in the 70s, Biden said he didn’t want his children to “grow up in a racial jungle” by making communities more diverse.

This is the man running to be president of the United States. What do you think is scarier, a president that suggested black people turn areas into “racial jungles,” or a Pentagon official who doesn’t trust Obama?
