CNN’s Jake Tapper Uses Images From the Holocaust to Attack Donald Trump and His Supporters

CNN anchor Jake Tapper used disturbing images from the Holocaust in an attempt to equate Donald Trump and his supporters to Nazi enablers for failing to “condemn” the former President for having dinner with Kanye West and little-known commentator Nick Fuentes.

Tapper’s reprehensible take was part of his closing monologue on “State of the Union” Sunday.

The diatribe was an effort to guilt Republican lawmakers – notably House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy and Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) – into denouncing a dinner in which Trump met with West and Fuentes, the latter two having made bizarre, mostly incomprehensible comments about Jews in recent days.

Tapper also referenced his great Uncle Edwin who was shot down and killed by the Germans during World War II.

“What are we talking about tolerating here? Anti-Semitism and Holocaust denial. Pure evil,” Tapper claimed. “The evil off camera in this photo.”

“See the little kid there on the left side showing the other kids the flower, see that kid? These are Hungarian Jews in 1944. And unbeknownst to them, they were waiting to be killed,” he continued. “They were about a hundred or 200 meters away from gas chambers.”

Jake Tapper Uses Holocaust Imagery to Condemn Trump Supporters

It’s truly difficult to take Tapper seriously when he dips into AOC-level commentary and tries to make the story about himself.

‘See, me and my Uncle Edwin fight Nazis, while the GOP won’t condemn a dinner with this loser nobody has ever heard of and that makes them Nazis.’

Or something.

And Tapper has been downright obsessed with the Fuentes controversy. Undoubtedly, thanks to this new narrative by the media, Fuentes has gained far more notoriety than if he had just been ignored. 

But “Get Trump” is the goal, not ignoring barely-known 20-year-olds on the internet.

Here he is suggesting anybody not condemning the dinner with Fuentes is essentially a Nazi themselves:

“These are images from inside those concentration camps where Jews, after years of being demonized by Nazis whose lies were first tolerated and then subsumed by politicians and the public, Jews were ghettoized and then rounded up and slaughtered. Along with millions of Roma, gays, Catholics and others.”

Ever the self-righteous jackwagon. This is the same guy who tried to shame people into being more ‘adult’ like him by wearing a mask alone in a room to stop the spread of COVID.

He is a virtue-signaler to the Nth degree. 

And hey, how much coverage has Jake Tapper given to the Azov Battalion in Ukraine? Surely, men running around with Wolfsangels, Sonnenrads, loving photos of Nazi collaborator Stepan Bandera, and other Nazi symbols on their uniforms are more worthy of coverage than some kid who has a podcast?

CNN Should Worry About CNN

Since Tapper is playing stupid association games he may want to look in-house prior to showing Holocaust imagery to shame people over a non-event dinner.

This is the same network that was forced to fire contributor Marc Lamont Hill following controversial comments he made about Israel.

Hill called for a “free Palestine from the river to the sea,” which, as the site StopAntiSemitism.org explains, is a “code for eradicating the State of Israel and its millions of Jews.”

‘Well, at least they fired him,’ you might argue.

But then there is current CNN anchor Don Lemon, who once told Louis Farrakhan that it was an “honor and a pleasure” to meet him during a flowery 2007 interview he later described as “amazing.”

Farrakhan is a rabid anti-Semite who has referred to Jews as “termites” and praised Hitler as “a very great man.”

Where is Tapper with his folder of Holocaust images and Uncle Edwin stories when he speaks about Don Lemon?

CNN consistently gives a platform to anti-Semite Representatives Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), the former who has called Israel “evil,” the latter of which has said thinking of the Holocaust provides her a “calming feeling” because afterward, Palestinians provided “a safe haven for Jews.”

For that matter, CNN famously propped Donald Trump up during his 2016 presidential elections and provided him a platform without which he might never have won. Now he’s the problem.

What would Uncle Edwin have thought about CNN’s own actions?

  • Tapper, either you are completely mad, an idiot or don't know your history! Were you there in Europe during WW2? No, I didn't think so! Stop comparing Trump to a Nazi. You look absolutely stupid when you do that! Because someone has dinner with an antisemitic person does not make him a Nazi! I, personally, would not have done so because I am Jewish, but Trump isn't. His daughter may have married a Jew, but Trump didn't. You have to learn how to separate things!

    • Unfortunately, the SPAM filters aren't perfect and net some perfectly legitimate comments as well (and seem to miss a lot of the SPAM). We're doing our best to get to everyone's comments!

  • Jake Tapper is the MOST DESPICABLE person perhaps on the entire planet ! He is a NOBODY using his platform to make an ass out of himself, and as they say "what goes around, comes around." Hopefully he will be fired, shamed, and exposed as the bigot he is

  • Tapper you’re a disgusting person for comparing people to the holocaust you have no idea what you’re talking about I had family members that died in the holocaust…KEEP Your MOUTH SHUT!!!!!

  • Yes. Because having dinner with people who may have different political views is EXACTLY the very same thing as committing GENOCIDE.

    (That would be SARCASM for all of you emotionally incontinent, mentally deficient Lefties/Democrats).

  • Jake Tapper is a prime example of a mindless, sick and demented individual who is most likely asylum material!
