NOTE: Title shortened due to ATS title limitations.

Seriously, does this hate know no bounds?!?! This is just openly disgusting and unwarranted attacks upon the president for no good reason.


A BuzzFeed News world editor faced backlash Sunday for taking a swipe at President Trump while tweeting an article about the attacks in Sri Lanka on Easter.

"Suspect we’d be hearing a lot more outrage from Trump and co. if the Christians killed in Sri Lanka were white," Miriam Elder tweeted with a link to BuzzFeed News.

And, how did her employer respond to this attack when asked?


When contacted by Fox News, BuzzFeed News responded: “No comment from us.”


No comment?!?! Well, this exposes them for what they truly are, race baiting propagandists.

Anyone who takes ANYTHING buzzfeed says even remotely seriously is mentally deficient.

When it comes to garbage journalism, they are pretty much at the bottom. So I'm not surprised they "dug" up such a "hot take" on the sri lanka story.

I have a lot of self hate, but I can't fathom what it would be like to be such a putrid peddler of hate as some of these "journalist" and go home and look at myself in the mirror.

Astounding.

Trump isn't racist, he treats everyone who works for him the same, color doesn't matter, he fires anyone who does not preform as they are supposed to preform. Trump does kind of respect people who like to work for a living....

He is pretty old school.

It's a simple formula, you pull your weight and bring in more than you take(money wise). You do that, and make a buck, for you and for him, he couldn't give 2 #s less about what you are or what you do.

He's a pure capitalist, from what I gather. Which is actually what the US dream is all about.

Buzzfeed editor = Anyone with a laptop, coffee shop wifi access and enough pocket change to buy a double soy latte with cream.

Some people just don't know how pathetic they are.

That's BuzzFeed for you, these folk come up with articles that are just ridiculous. Hell their next article could be '23 reasons how to tell your pets are gay'

Terrorist attack, hundreds dead, investigations will follow, end of f^^^^^g story. How Trump got dragged into this baffles me.

I like buzzfeed, it's one of the better sources for comedy these days.

I know that isn't their intent, but man some of their # is just gold. Doubly so when you realize that they are serious.

Honestly, the internet wouldn't be what it is without them. So they have that going for them.

I hate pieces like this because logically I have to defend Trump.

It's impossible to be critical of him when people are so unhinged they'll conflate anything to buzzwords (pun intended).

So when I do say something critical of him I get grouped with these asshats.

Useful effing idiots.

Anyone who likes Trump should praise these ass clowns, seriously.

Buzzfeed have obviously really crossed a line here... it was totally uncalled for.

After all, Trump already posted a tweet expressing his condolences for the 138 million people who lost their lives.

Whilst quite inappropriate, and politicizing a tragedy, the point is spot on.

Not necessarily the Trump and co. part, but definitely the western part.

Evidence? The thread on the attack here on ATS has just over 100 replies at the time of this posting.

I will even admit my own indifference to it.

It's terrible, but I don't really care.

It is indifference because of the location and no personal connection to it, not because of their color.

Buzzfeed Editor = "Instagram Model"

LOL

"YouTube Reviewer"

People who think they are influencers. Those people are worse than lawyers and developers.

What does that have more to do with though? The fact they're Sri Lankan or the fact that no one in the Western Press gives two shakes of a rat's @ss if a bunch of Christians of *any* color or nationality get bombed to kingdom come? Let's be honest. The people targeted and killed at Christchurch were no more white than these people were, but we were all outraged by it. Those victims fit the narrative, so did their attacker. The idea that Christians get targeted for being Christian doesn't fit the preferred press narrative and so gets as much attention as black on black violence in the ghettos.

You want to know why practically no one knows anything here? Ask the editors in the press rooms why *they* don't care, and they're as liberal as you'll find anywhere.

And had this been muslims, the editor would have said that Trump would be more outraged if the victims were Christians. They never stop, just like the left when it comes to police "brutality." If they shoot the threat, they could have tased. If they tase the threat, they could have used force. If they use force, they could have just arrested. If they just arrest, they're still in the wrong and racist. It's always a no-win situation with these hardcore trolls.

Oh you mean like "Easter Worshippers"? difference here? Trumps was a typo.

Democrats and the liberal media would be more outraged if the victims weren't Christians.

Buzzfeed was a propaganda outlet for the Steele dossier, and other fake news used to illegally spy on Trump.

They are bought and paid for by Perkins Coie.
