CNN’s Cuomo accused of ‘siding with the St. Louis mob’ during heated interview with armed homeowner

Westlake Legal Group Chris-Cuomo-CNN CNN's Cuomo accused of 'siding with the St. Louis mob' during heated interview with armed homeowner fox-news/media fox news fnc/media fnc Brian Flood article a23eaa59-10b6-5864-8e06-6467d4a01577

CNN’s Chris Cuomo was accused of siding with the “mob” on Tuesday night during a contentious interview with Mark McCloskey, the man who went viral for brandishing a gun alongside his wife as the couple protected their home from protesters.

The couple told police the protesters broke a gate to get onto the private street in St. Louis, and the pair say they only retrieved their firearms when they spotted “multiple” people who were already armed, police department records show.

Cuomo began the interview by asking McCloskey what if feels like to have become the “face of political resistance to the Black Lives Matter movement.”

ARMED PROTESTORS BROKE ION GATE, THREATENED COUPLE BEFORE THEY DREW GUNS, ATTORNEY SAYS

McCloskey shot back that it was a “completely ridiculous” statement and said he was simply protecting his home.

“I’m not the face of anything opposed to the Black Lives Matter movement, I was a person scared for my life,” he said. “I was a victim of a mob that came through the gate, I didn’t care what color they were.”

McCloskey then said he has watched his city crumble and evoked the tragic death of retired St. Louis police captain David Dorn, who was shot and killed when attempting to protect a pawnshop from looters last month.

ST. LOUIS COUPLE DRAW WEAPONS ON PROTESTERS HEADED TO MAYOR’S HOUSE: REPORT

Cuomo dismissed McCloskey’s fears and asked, “To be clear, did anything happen to you or your property?”

McCloskey said, “It’s called social intimidation … terrorism.”

Cuomo then scolded McCloskey for pointing a loaded weapon at protesters who were reportedly looking for the mayor’s home, but McCloskey said you cannot reach the mayor’s residence through his neighborhood. The two bickered over whether or not McCloskey was terrorized as the homeowner repeated claims that he felt threatened.

NewsBusters managing editor Curtis Houck wrote, “Cuomo spent over 13 minutes siding with the St. Louis mob” during his interview with McCloskey and his attorney, Albert Watkins.

“Instead of showing concern, Cuomo dismissed their right to feel safe in their homes, stand their ground when threatened by trespassers, and hilariously wondered whether it was necessary to brandish weapons since, in the end, the mob didn’t storm their house,” Houck wrote. “Cuomo apparently didn’t make the connection that brandishing guns would deter people from following through on their threats, but what do any of us know.”

Cuomo bickered with McCloskey and his attorney about the details of the encounter for several minutes, with the CNN host repeatedly dismissing concerns. At one point Cuomo mistakenly said President Trump deleted a tweet showing McCloskey and his wife touting their weapons.

“I’m glad you’re a mind reader, because no one else thinks you are,” McCloskey told Cuomo, who then corrected himself and said Trump did not delete the tweet.

Trump national security adviser surprised NY Times ‘ran with’ Russia bounty story, says info was ‘uncorroborated’

National Security Adviser Robert O’Brien said Wednesday that he was “surprised” after The New York Times and The Associated Press published explosive reports alleging that President Trump and his top officials had been aware of classified intelligence indicating that Russia was offering bounties to the Taliban for the deaths of American soldiers.

ROBERT O’BRIEN: NATIONAL SECURITY COUNCIL REFORMS – PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS MADE PEOPLE SAFER, NATION STRONGER

In an interview on “Fox & Friends” with hosts Steve Doocy, Ainsley Earhardt and Brian Kilmeade, O’Brien called the events that have unfolded since the reports were released “an unfortunate story.”

“Number one, no one is more concerned about the safety of America and the security of our armed forces – the men and women who serve us – than President Trump. And, he has [proven] that time and again during his presidency,” he asserted.

“Number two, no one has been tougher on Russia since the end of the Cold War than President Trump with multiple sanctions. And, for example, the United States provided Javelin missiles to Ukraine, which … the predecessor administration, the Obama-Biden administration refused to do,” O’Brien stated.

The White House has vehemently denied that President Trump was briefed on the issue despite reporting to the contrary. The New York Times reported late Monday that the bounty issue was in the written President’s Daily Brief earlier this year. It has been widely reported, however, that Trump does not read the detailed brief regularly, and is more often briefed on intelligence issues verbally.

On Tuesday, White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany accused The New York Times of “false” and “erroneous reporting,” saying that the president is only briefed on verified intelligence and claiming there were “dissenting opinions” within the intelligence community.

Reacting to the report late Monday, the Department of Defense claimed that there is “no corroborating evidence” to validate the allegations in the “open-source reports.”

In a statement on Tuesday, Secretary of Defense Mark Esper assured that he would continue to make sure any potential threat is taken seriously and that the Defense Department chain of command “and I are fully committed to ensuring American forces in the field have the best intelligence, weapons, equipment, protective gear, tactics and all necessary authorities to deal with any threats they might face in order to ensure their safety and mission success.”

President Trump himself has continuously denied on Twitter that either he or Vice President Mike Pence was briefed on the matter.

“The Russia Bounty story is just another made up by Fake News tale that is told only to damage me and the Republican Party. The secret source probably does not even exist, just like the story itself. If the discredited @nytimes has a source, reveal it. Just another HOAX!” he tweeted Wednesday morning

“’No corroborating evidence to back reports.’ Department of Defense. Do people still not understand that this is all a made up Fake News Media Hoax started to slander me & the Republican Party. I was never briefed because any info that they may have had did not rise to that level,” he added.

O’Brien echoed the words of the president.

“When it comes to the briefing, that’s another false story. And, I’m somewhat surprised that the ‘New York Times’ ran with that story,” he remarked.

“The president was not briefed because at the time of these allegations they were uncorroborated. The [Department of Defense] has come out. Secretary Esper’s prior segment just showed [he] said that it was uncorroborated,” he told the “Friends” hosts.

“The intelligence community does not have a consensus. And as a result, the president’s career CIA briefer decided not to brief him because it was unverified intelligence. And, by the way, she is an outstanding officer and knowing all the facts I know, I certainly support her decision.”

“Sadly, because of the leak, it may now become impossible ever to get to the bottom of this, to get to the truth of the matter,” O’Brien lamented.

“Someone decided to leak to hurt the president rather than uphold their obligations to the American people that they undertook when they became an intelligence officer or government employee,” he concluded.

Tim Graham: At Biden news conference, reporters throw softball questions at their favorite candidate

Everything about former Vice President Joe Biden’s Tuesday press conference underlines how the snarling, vicious media watchdogs covering the Trump administration will transform into cuddly little lapdogs if Biden is elected president.

Biden began with a 20-minute speech and CNN and MSNBC carried it live. These cable news channels often refuse to air White House press briefings and try not to give free air time to President Trump – just as CNN and MSNBC refused to air 96 percent of Trump’s Tulsa rally.

Then came the questions for Biden. The one that would seriously cause the president to tear out chunks of his hair came from Mike Memoli of NBC News. It can be summed up as this: You have a sizable lead. How do you keep winning?

ERIC TRUMP RIPS BIDEN AFTER FIRST PRESS CONFERENCE IN 89 DAYS: ‘THE MAN HAS NO FIGHT IN HIM’

By their softball questions, the press is signaling this question: And what can we do to help?

More from Opinions

Here’s the actual verbiage. “The polls today show you with a sizable national lead, a lead in a lot of the states that are critical in the Electoral College,” Memoli said. “I wonder, where do you think the race stands at this moment? What keeps you up at night as you look ahead? And can you maintain this advantage without campaigning in a traditional way, especially this fall when voters begin to really tune in?”

There is not an easier, more open-ended question to ask than “What’s the state of the race?”

The elite media pretend it’s preposterous that there’s a vast difference between their treatment of Republicans and Democrats.

It’s quite a contrast with what NBC’s Peter Alexander asked at the White House. On June 19, he threw a hardball at White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany, quoting Trump’s tweets about backstabbing former aides who write “tell-all” books.

“Why does the president keep hiring people who are ‘dumb as a rock,’ ‘overrated,’ ‘way over their heads,’ ‘wacko’ and ‘incompetent’?” Alexander asked.

The aggression quotient on these two questions is lion and lamb. Or rabid, man-eating lions and Lambchop the gentle puppet.

Associated Press reporter Alexandra Jaffe came first and just regurgitated Biden’s own vicious words about the president.

“We reported yesterday that President Trump was briefed as early as March of 2019 that Russia had ordered or offered bounties to the Taliban for the killing of U.S. soldiers,” Jaffe said. “You called his inaction on this issue a ‘betrayal.’ So broadly, what consequences do you think the president should face for that betrayal, and, specifically, what do you think Congress should do?”

That’s the question for Biden – how should Trump be punished?

Reporters love to paint Trump as Russian President Vladimir Putin’s poodle – or as a traitor.

Biden accused Trump of an “absolute dereliction of duty.”

Jaffe still wanted Biden to give Trump a punishment, asking: “What consequences should he face if these allegations are true or these reports are true?” The obvious answer is defeat in November.

CNN’s Arlette Saenz came up with a vague question about the racial “reckoning” that’s causing statues to be ripped down and asked Biden: “What do you think when you see the removal of some of these statues?” That’s better than Memoli, but she doesn’t sound like Biden’s own Jim Acosta.

Ed O’Keefe of CBS reminded Biden that he had boasted, “I’ll confront Putin” regarding the issue of election meddling issue and asked the former vice president: “Can you tell us what you would do to Putin?”

There was absolutely zero context about how the Obama-Biden policy toward Russia for eight years compares to Trump’s. Did President Barack Obama and Biden “confront” Putin back then? Didn’t they obviously fail to prevent this supposedly democracy-mangling Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election?

The elite media pretend it’s preposterous that there’s a vast difference between their treatment of Republicans and Democrats. They need to watch this puffball press conference again.

Mary Trump’s publisher claims no knowledge of NDA after judge’s halt order; says tell-all has shipped

The publisher of a “tell-all” book by a niece of President Trump said it might be unable to prevent her book from becoming public — adding it was unaware of any non-disclosure agreement that would prevent the book from being published — after a judge ordered a temporary halt on its release, according to reports.

Simon & Schuster said it had already shipped out thousands of a 75,000-copy run of Mary Trump’s “Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man.”

The books had already been printed before the New York Supreme Court judge’s ruling, The Washington Post reported.

NY JUDGE TEMPORARILY BLOCKS MARY TRUMP’S BOOK PUBLICATION

The book is scheduled to be released July 28 — less than four months before the presidential election — but Judge Hal Greenwald issued a temporary restraining order until he can hear arguments next week after the president’s younger brother, Robert Trump, filed a court action.

Robert Trump has claimed Mary Trump is barred from writing about private family affairs because of a nondisclosure agreement she signed as part of a settlement over her inheritance.

Mary Trump’s father was Fred Trump Jr., the president’s older brother, who died in 1981.

“We did not learn anything about Ms. Trump signing any agreement concerning her ability to speak about her litigation with her family until shortly after press broke concerning Ms. Trump’s Book about two weeks ago, well after the Book had been accepted, put into production, and printing had begun. And we never saw any purported agreement until this action was filed against Ms. Trump and Simon & Schuster,” company CEO Jonathan Karp wrote in an affadavit, according to The Daily Beast.

Mary Trump’s lawyer, Theodore Boutrous Jr., said they will file an immediate appeal over the ruling and claimed that although the halt is temporary it is a violation of the First Amendment.

“This book, which addresses matters of great public concern and importance about a sitting president in an election year, should not be suppressed even for one day,” he said, according to The Post.

Robert Trump, in a statement through his lawyer, Charles Harder, said he was  “very pleased” by the ruling, according to The New York Times.

Mary Trump is a clinical psychologist and uses “her education, insight, and intimate familiarity” with the Trump family to describe a “nightmare of traumas, destructive relationships, and a tragic combination of neglect and abuse,” according to the book’s description on Amazon.com.

The book is already a bestseller on Amazon based on presales.

Harder said they would “vigorously” litigate the case over Mary Trump’s “egregious conduct.”

He said she has caused “enormous damages” through her “breach of contract,” according to The Post.

Earlier this month, the Trump administration unsuccessfully sued former national security adviser John Bolton for breach of contract over his book about the president. That book, “The Room Where It Happened,” was released last week.

Laura Ingraham began Tuesday’s “The Ingraham Angle” with a call for “patriots” to “stand up for America” and against “the bullies of the Left,” reminding viewers of Republican victories in the recent past.

“Now, when we see this kind of behavior, it can look like our cause is hopeless, but it is not,” she said. “We’ve been through tough times before and we’ve come out on top and we can again now.

“Remember the 1970s and how bleak the outlook was for the country? …” Ingraham asked. “Watergate, the quagmire of Vietnam, the oil embargo, double-digit inflation, and of course, a lot of sky-high interest rates, not to mention a hostile media and the malaise of Jimmy Carter’s presidency. Well, a lot of people lost hope. They were convinced we would never be able to prevail over the Soviet Union or end communism.

DEMS TWEET THEN DELETE POST LINKING TRUMP’S MT. RUSHMORE EVENT TO ‘GLORIFYING WHITE SUPREMACY’

“But Ronald Reagan emerged to defend the greatness of America and then to call out the dangers from the other side,” Ingraham said. “He reminded us to have confidence in ourselves and to believe that the USA was worth defending.”

Ingraham went on to remind viewers that “the situation we face now isn’t really any more dire than we faced back then. By the way, back then, it included an immediate threat of a thermonuclear war.

“Remember how everyone at the same time was predicting the end of conservatism after Obama won in 2008? Well, I was there in 2009 and I spoke at some of the Tea Party events …”

“Well, Romney bombed out in 2012, of course he did, but we didn’t give up. [In] 2014, we took back the Senate. And two years later, we did the unthinkable and put Donald Trump in the White House,” Ingraham said. “Now, we did all of that with the political superstar, Barack Obama, as president.”

The host said the media want Americans to think Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden is unbeatable, while in fact the Democrats are making “huge mistakes.”

But Ingraham warned that “patriots” are the only thing standing in the way of a Democratic takeover of American government.

“So right now, we need patriots from every state, from every walk of life, from all races and backgrounds to stand up for America, to stand against the bullies of the left,” Ingraham said. “For years now, it’s been obvious that President Trump and the movement he leads is the last line of defense against the anti-Americanism the Left will unleash if it’s allowed to retake the levers of government.”

Trump Organization Executive Vice President Eric Trump told “Hannity” Tuesday that presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden‘s press conference showed that the former vice president “has no fight in him.”

“First of all, he had zero energy … I have to watch this stuff [and] I had a tough time watching it,” the president’s second son told host Sean Hannity. “I mean, everybody was falling asleep. He didn’t make any sense. He was stumbling through it … He has no confidence. He didn’t answer anything. Everything he said was very … generic. The man has no fight in him.”

BIDEN ACCUSES TRUMP OF ‘DERELICTION OF DUTY’ OVER RUSSIA BOUNTY REPORTS IN FIRST PRESS BRIEFING IN NEARLY 3 MONTHS 

Biden made some headlines while taking questions from reporters in Wilmington, Del., including his announcement that he would not hold any campaign rallies due to the coronavirus pandemic. He also said Confederate statues should be removed from public locations and placed in museums but urged government officials to “protect” statues of other historical figures like Christopher Columbus and George Washington.

The 77-year-old Biden also told Fox News’ Doug McKelway that he is “constantly tested” for cognitive decline.

Eric Trump trashed the media for its performance at the presser, saying it was another example of the double standard between its dealings with Biden and its dealings with his father, President Trump.

“You see these little softballs where Joe Biden’s going through this list … “Trump said. “And by the way, there’s no question he had the questions and the interview questions there, because every single time he called on somebody he looked down and he read his notes.”

“The double standard’s incredible. People see through it,” Trump said. “They see that the media is 99 percent in in that camp and they see how unfair the system is.”

Trump said he couldn’t picture Biden dealing with countries like China and Russia, while praising his father.

“Could you imagine him going against China? Can you imagine him going against Russia?” he asked. “My father’s taken on the entire world, taken on, you know, all of Europe. He’s taken on the U.N.. He’s taken on China. He’s taken on Mexico. He’s taken on everybody. Because guess what? They were all totally ripping apart our country and using and abusing us.”

Tucker Carlson calls on GOP voters to ‘demand three things from their candidates’ this November

Tucker Carlson called on voters to hold Republicans accountable Tuesday in the aftermath of his Monday interview with Sen. Mike Braun, R-Ind., about Braun’s introduction of a bill that would limit qualified immunity for law enforcement officers.

“An awful lot of Republican officeholders look very much like Mike Braun right now. Probably most of them. That’s a problem. In a moment like this, it is a severe and dangerous problem … ” the “Tucker Carlson Tonight” host. “Republicans at all levels could lose this fall. If they do, there will be profound consequences for you. People who supported Donald Trump will be punished, there’s definitely no question about that. There’s never been an American political party as radical and as angry as the Democrats are now.”

TUCKER PRESSES BRAUN OVER QUALIFIED IMMUNITY BILL: ‘YOU’RE TAKING YOUR CUES FROM CHUCK SCHUMER’

“Imagine them with unlimited power and that’s what they plan to get in their first year,” Carlson went on. “The point is, and it could not be clearer: Non-Democrats in America are in peril.”

Carlson said his interview with Braun was meant to remind viewers that Republicans were the only “shield” for non-Democrats.

“Yes, the Republican Party, flawed and infuriating though it often is. The fact remains, the GOP is the only institution still open to the rest of us, to Americans who want to live as they did just 15 years ago, quietly, productively, without being harassed and harangued by self-righteous lunatics who mean them harm. And they do,” Carlson said. “If you want to be left alone to do your job and raise your family in this country, you will need a protector. That protector must be the Republican Party. There are no other options, but it must be a very different kind of Republican Party.”

The host called on Republican voters to “demand three things from their candidates. And if they don’t provide them, don’t vote for them.

“First is vigorous defense of total equality under the law. We are equal because we are citizens. Every American has precisely the same rights as every other American. Period. That is the promise of America,” Carlson said. “It’s why millions of people move here for a long time … It was obvious, but it no longer is obvious. And there are many who are working in the opposite direction. Republicans must counterbalance this. They must work as hard as they can to make America fair again.”

BRAUN KNOCKS SENATE DEMS OVER ‘TERRIBLE THREAT’ TO BLOCK GOP POLICE REFORM BILL

“Don’t get caught in pointless debates about whether or not this is a racist country,” Carlson added. “Clearly it isn’t. Prove it by making it less racist by making it a colorblind meritocracy. That’s our promise.”

Carlson next called on Republicans to “defend our freedom of speech.”

“We are not a free society without that,” Carlson said. “This is not simply a debate about the First Amendment and its limits. It’s bigger than that and more important. If you can’t articulate something, if you’re not allowed, you can’t think. And that’s precisely why authoritarians try to control language. They’re trying to control your mind. Republicans should lead the fight against this without shame. Americans have the absolute right to tell the truth. This is not negotiable.

“Nor, by the way, is it a theoretical concern of interest only to intellectuals. Everything depends on it. If you can’t think freely, you can’t solve problems. Try to build a hydro plant or fly a commercial airplane. If certain categories of thought are off limits to you, it doesn’t work. The power grid collapses. Planes crash. Society degrades. No speech means no science, no art, no civilization.

Carlson’s final point was “we must never forget that in the end, the Republican Party exists to serve the interests of normal people.”

“Can Republican officeholders change their party?” Carlson asked. “Yes, they can. We just have to make them.”

NY Times columnist Paul Krugman slammed for saying coronavirus is ‘coming for white supremacists driving golf carts’

New York Times columnist Paul Krugman was slammed on social media over a tweet mocking Florida senior citizens who are vulnerable to the coronavirus.

Several states are seeing a spike in coronavirus cases, including Florida. A report from Bloomberg News noted that a “record number” of Floridians ages 75 and older are testing positive for the virus at a more rapid rate than in past weeks.

The economist, however, appeared gleeful by the life-threatening news.

“Reality is coming for white supremacists driving golf carts,” the 67-year-old columnist tweeted while sharing the article.

TIME MAGAZINE BLASTED AFTER WRITER CALLS FOR SUPERHEROES TO BE ‘RE-EXAMINED’ ALONG WITH POLICE

The jab against Florida’s seniors may have been referring to the controversial video President Trump shared on Twitter on Sunday showing one of his supporters in a parade of golf carts shouting “White power” in response to anti-Trump protesters during a recent clash in The Villages. Trump took down the tweet after swift condemnation with the White House stating that the president didn’t hear the remark.

Krugman’s tweet sparked fierce criticism.

“What a shameful thing to say,” Washington Examiner contributor Brad Polumbo reacted.

“How long until there’s an actual terrorist attack based off of all this unhinged/dehumanizing rhetoric that has flooded media?” writer Zaid Jilani asked.

“What a sick remark. Once upon a time, I was a fan of yours. Or is this a parody account?” economist Geert Noels wrote.

Several others, including The Intercept editor Glenn Greenwald, called Krugman “sociopathic” for writing such a tweet.

Tim Scott blasts ‘liberal Democrats’ for sending him racist messages: ‘Audacious, repugnant behavior’

Westlake Legal Group 3a14a104-image-10 Tim Scott blasts 'liberal Democrats' for sending him racist messages: 'Audacious, repugnant behavior' Victor Garcia fox-news/us/crime/police-and-law-enforcement fox-news/shows/the-story fox-news/politics/senate/republicans fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox-news/media fox news fnc/media fnc article 7e439b1a-14e6-54e9-99e0-57e0c8c656d9

Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C., told “The Story” Tuesday that “liberal Democrats” were responsible for the offensive voicemail messages he received at the height of his push for police reform.

Scott, the lone black Republican senator, played the messages for his Republican colleagues during a closed-door lunch last week.

“We had dozens — more than a dozen of them,” Scott told host Martha MacCallum. “I only played two of them, which were the most racially offensive comments from liberals in this country. They called to say that I was in their crosshairs.

“It was so profanity-laced, you can’t play five seconds of those videos on your show because there are that many f-bombs, the n-word — by liberal Democrats — causing a stir in my office, threatening my life. It is the most audacious, repugnant behavior I’ve seen in a very long time.”

SENATE REPUBLICANS’ POLICE REFORM BILL FAILS ON TEST VOTE AMID DEM OPPOSITION

Scott also responded to House Majority Whip James Clyburn‘s claim earlier in the program that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., was the reason Democrats blocked debate on Scott’s police reform bill last week.

Clyburn, D-S.C., told MacCallum that Scott’s frustration over the failure of his bill “ought to be with Mitch McConnell” and added that the majority leader should have let Scott work with Sens. Cory Booker, D-N.J., and Kamala Harris, D-Calif., on bipartisan legislation.

“I had multiple conversations with Democrats, including those two [Booker and Harris], about what they saw that needed to be changed in the bill,” Scott told host Martha MacCallum. “Now, I offered them … 20 amendments to do the changing. They still walked away from the opportunity.”

Scott admitted that “I would certainly add to my legislation [a ban on] carotid [chokeholds] … But if that is our disagreement, that’s solved in 30 seconds.”

Scott also reacted to a viral video taken last week of a white female protester screaming at a group of police officers. One of the officers, who is white, tells the woman not to address him on the issue because his wife is black, prompting the protester to ask the officer for proof and produce a picture.

“The uneducated are showing up in droves and unfortunately, they’re getting microphones because they have been empowered not by the historical perspective, not — as Congressman Clyburn said — an assessment and an evaluation based on historical understanding. That’s out the window,” Scott said.

“It’s chaos and chaos leads to anarchy. And that’s dangerous, very dangerous for this nation. And we need to force the conversation in the public forum so that adults can have conversations where we agree to disagree without being disagreeable. It can happen. It hasn’t happened in too long.”

Time magazine blasted after writer calls for superheroes to be ‘re-examined’ along with police

A piece published by Time raised eyebrows after calling for a cultural reckoning of how superheroes are depicted amid the national dialogue that has cracked down on how TV shows and films portray police and law enforcement.

Time writer Eliana Dockterman began the piece — titled “We’re Re-examining How We Portray Cops Onscreen. Now It’s Time to Talk About Superheroes” — by noting the recent cancellations of “Cops” and “Live PD” following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, and how even “Paw Patrol” has become a target.

“But as we engage in this long overdue conversation about law enforcement, it’s high time we also talk about the most popular characters in film, the ones who decide the parameters of justice and often enact them with violence: superheroes,” Dockterman wrote Monday.

She described superheroes as “cops with capes who enact justice with their powers” who are usually “straight, white men who either function as an extension of a broken U.S. justice system or as vigilantes without any checks on their powers.”

DAVE PORTNOY, JEMELE HILL IGNITE ‘CANCEL CULTURE’ WAR OVER PAST REMARKS

“When Batman ignores orders and goes rogue, there’s no oversight committee to assess whether Bruce Wayne’s biases influence who he brings to justice and how. Heroes like Iron Man occasionally feel guilt about the casualties they inflict, but ultimately empower themselves again and again to draw those moral lines,” Dockterman said.

The Time writer blamed superhero creators being white men behind how very few films “reckon with issues of systemic racism — let alone sexism, homophobia, transphobia and other forms of bigotry embedded in the justice system or the inherent biases these superheroes might carry with them as they patrol the streets, or the universe.”

She cited the “Blade” films, “Black Panther” and “Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse” as examples fo superhero flicks that do a better job at elevating the conversation, and praised “Watchmen” for directly engaging with “corruption in policing,” noting how the recent HBO miniseries tackles the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre and the white nationalist terrorist organization that served as the antagonist.

NY TIMES COLUMNIST: ‘YES, EVEN GEORGE WASHINGTON’ STATUES MUST GO

“If Hollywood is to do better in telling these stories, more creators of color need to be given the reins to tell them,” Dockterman said.

She added: “Only when this creative freedom is encouraged and Hollywood offers more opportunities to BIPOC creators — and white creators use their capital to support creators who are too often overlooked — will we get more superhero tales that adequately grapple with the complexity of justice in America.”

Critics took to Twitter to pan the piece.

“GTFO,” Ben Shapiro wrote.

“Superheroes are canceled!” Human Events managing editor Ian Miles Cheong tweeted.

“Did the Joker write this?” Daily Wire contributor Harry Khachatrian asked.

“America is finally addressing the important questions,” podcast host Jamie Weinstein said.
