It’s always fun to watch an example of “Operation Backfire” unfold right before your eyes.
And we’re seeing it happening today.
After promoting the hell out of this weekend’s nationwide protests against ICE, CNN suddenly realized their mistake and like Emily Litella are meekly whimpering, “Never mind!”

Yes. A massive political mistake that you guys at CNN helped to gin up, you dummies.
I guess somebody at CNN finally combed through the results of that Harvard/Harris poll from June 27 and realized they were promoting a wildly unpopular movement.
And since CNN’s priority isn’t reporting the news but securing this fading “Blue Wave,” they have to back-peddle big time.
"Um. About those protests that we promoted the heck out of on Saturday? Well … nevermind." https://t.co/j9JMGemckj

Now, granted, this is being billed as an opinion piece.
Which, seems redundant since, well, it’s from CNN.
But here’s the writer’s biggest concern:
With Democrats attacking ICE, the administration has been given an opening to paint its opponents as extreme, radical and a threat to national security.
“Paint its opponents?”
Honey, if the semi-gloss acrylic fits…
The fact is, nobody needs to “paint” the Abolish ICE movement as “extreme, radical and a threat to national security.” Mostly because it’s the unvarnished truth.
But the fact is Democrats can only win if they pretend that they’re not extreme.
And this Abolish ICE movement pulls the curtain back and lets us all see just how radical these Democrats really are.
And that is exactly why CNN is panicking.
They know they pushed too hard and too far. And the radical Abolish ICE movement is already blowing up in their faces like a trick cigar.
But at this point, publishing an opinion piece after you’ve already promoted the heck out this is a day late and a dollar short.
