CNN hired a writer who is a Nazi. How are we that surprised? Both CNN and the Nazis are antisemitic totalitarian socialists. So, where is the great epiphany? The actual surprise is that they haven’t hired more Nazis, as they obviously would fit in so well with the corporate culture of the network. And CNN HQ in Atlanta? Wouldn’t it be more politically and intellectually appropriate if it was festooned like the Reichstag circa 1941? Yup. This is expected from CNN types. If they only hire more Communists their staff will become entirely consistent with their Ribbentrop/Molotov views.
FNC: CNN is under fire for having hired a writer who posted several times on social media that he believes the world needs another ‘Hitler.’ Social media users demanded that the network respond after discovering the tweets from one of its freelance contributors, Adeel Raja, who has written dozens of pieces for the outlet. After some digging, it turned out to be one of several messages Raja has posted praising the Nazi leader.”
“The only reason I am supporting Germany in the finals – Hitler was a German and he did good with those Jews!” Raja wrote during the 2014 FIFA World Cup. Raja last was employed by CNN on Sept. 16, 2020. He still lists his affiliation with the network on LinkedIn. Of course he does. He felt comfortable there.
“Hail Hitler!” he wrote the next day. Twitter users posted screenshots of the messages.
This guy has 54 articles under his byline at CNN. They should probably fire whoever does their background checks. pic.twitter.com/yNr7iT29nD

CNN tried to cover their posterior. It didn’t work. “Adeel Raja has never been a CNN employee. As a freelancer, his reporting contributed to some newsgathering efforts from Islamabad. However, in light of these abhorrent statements, he will not be working with CNN again in any capacity.”
In related news, much to the disappointment of Raja and CNN, Israeli PM Bibi Netanyahu is taking care of business in Gaza.
“In response to HUNDREDS of rockets in the last 24 hours, the IDF has struck a number of significant terror targets and terror operatives across the Gaza Strip, marking our largest strike since 2014,” the Israeli Defense Forces wrote on Twitter. “We are currently striking more terror targets in Gaza.”
“We’ll do whatever it takes to restore order and quiet, and the security of our people and deterrence,” Netanyahu said on “Face the Nation” on Sunday. “We’re trying to degrade Hamas’ terrorist abilities and to degrade their will to do this again.”
