    Surge Summary: Wednesday, CNN’s Jake Tapper questioned the patriotism of disabled veteran/Republican Representative Brian Mast for challenging Democrats on impeachment of Donald Trump over the storming of the U.S. Capitol. No push back from his network – where other hosts had said nothing or even supported Leftist violence over the past several months.

    During [Wednesday]’s coverage of the House impeachment debate, CNN’s Jake Tapper launched into a disgusting attack against Rep. Brian Mast, a combat veteran who lost his legs in Afghanistan.

    Mast questioned the House Democrats’ lack of rules and procedure for [Wednesday]’s “snap impeachment.”  Normally, the House Judiciary Committee would hold hearings, conduct some investigation, depose witnesses, etc.  None of that happened this time.  Instead, articles of impeachment were drafted in secret and delivered straight to the House floor for a rushed vote.

    When Mast dared to question this gross abuse of the rules for a vindictive, partisan impeachment, Tapper had the audacity to question Mast’s patriotism, saying, “Congressman Brian Mast, a Republican from Florida, who lost his legs, by the way, fighting for democracy abroad, although I don’t know about his commitment to it here in the United States. . .”

    Tapper should be fired.  But there was no push back [Wednesday] from anyone on CNN.

    The talking heads on CNN have repeatedly made excuses for Antifa and the BLM rioters.  And they are still justifying the left’s violence.  This week, Don Lemon and Chris Cuomo once again raved about the rioting over the summer.

    There it is, folks.  They have freedom of speech.  We don’t.  They have the right to assemble.  We don’t.  And, apparently, they have a right to engage in violence too.
