The United Nations human rights chief thinks that Trump's criticism of journalists as “fake news” is an attack on the free press, and could incite violence against journalists.
I have two big problems with Zeid Ra’ad al-Hussein’s concerns.
The first problem is obvious:
I’m pretty sure Zeid Ra’ad al-Hussein has something better to do than worry about the hurt feelings of some mildly insulted journalists in the freest country on the planet.
And secondly, the violence against reporters isn't coming at the behest of Trump but rather from his sworn enemies on the far left, Antifa, who have attacked journalists in Montreal and Berkeley.
I was assaulted by a left wing activist at the anti-Trump Women’s March in Edmonton.
The UN is pretending to defend freedom while leading the attack against it.
