April Ryan hates the truth

April Ryan hates the truth

It probably doesn’t come as a galloping surprise that April Ryan hates the truth. April works for CNN.  And CNN is allergic to the truth.

Here’s the deal.

Yesterday, Baltimore Republican Kimberly Klacik announced that she would be running for the Maryland District 7 Congressional seat that up until recently was occupied by Elijah Cummings.

And April Ryan is super upset about it.


Well, this is why:

So, let me see if I get this straight.

Kimberly Klacik spent some time filming in the rat-infested, garbage-strewn squalor in Baltimore — interviewing the residents who have to put up with the conditions on a daily basis. She then posted those videos to Twitter.

Back in the old days, this was something journalists did.  They would go to an area, film it, interview people and report on it.

That might be why April Ryan is so angry.

You see, only journalists are supposed to do this kind of thing and Kimberly Klacik isn’t a journalist.

Of course, neither is April Ryan.  She’s a former jazz DJ.

But forget about that!

Moving on.

President Trump saw these videos on Twitter and retweeted them – calling attention to the rat-infested, garbage-strewn squalor that folks in Elijah Cummings’ district have to endure.

Trump called Cummings out for failing his own constituents and, according to April, “Cummings never got over the attack on him and the city.”

And now he’s dead.


Only, Klacik didn’t “create all the controversy.”  She didn’t import the rats or dump all that trash.  The controversy was there all along.  All Klacik did was pull back the curtain and show the world.

It’s true that, but for Klacik doing the job reporters don’t want to do, Americans would probably still not know that parts of Baltimore look like a slum in India.

But that’s not “creating a controversy.”  Instead it is reporting the truth.

And that, in a nutshell, is why April Ryan has such a problem with Kimberly Klacik.

Klacik exposed the truth.

And April Ryan hates the truth (when the truth makes a Democrat look bad).

For the former jazz DJ, it would have been better if the rest of the country remained ignorant to the fact that Elijah Cummings failed his constituents.  I’m sure the fact that Elijah’s wife hopes to replace him in Congress is a lot of the reason April is doing her level best to keep that truth hidden from view.

And with Kimberly Klacik entering that race, the truth of Cummings’ failure will be front and center.

That’s why April Ryan is going after Klacik.

But April isn’t the only one out to destroy Kimberly Klacik for having the temerity to expose the truth.

Ryan’s fellow CNN “media reporter” jumped into the replies of her tweet with this gem:

It’s hard to read April Ryan’s nasty tweet and not make the inference that Ryan is somehow blaming Klacik for Cummings’ death.

No, she doesn’t come out and say that.  But the implication is there.  And it didn’t go unnoticed.

Several people pointed that out yesterday, and Ryan huffily denied that’s what she meant.

Here’s just one example.

Problem is, some of the people making that inference have already begun to threaten Klacik to the point where she needs to hire security.

So if that wasn’t what April Ryan meant, perhaps she should have chosen her words more carefully.

Personally I think she intended to leave people with that impression.  She intended to rile up Leftists to go after Kimberly Klacik for committing the crime of exposing the truth about Baltimore.

It’s April Ryan after all.

This is the woman who sent her bodyguard to rough up a reporter for filming her speech, then claimed ignorance about it.

Here’s the thing. April Ryan isn’t a journalist.

She is, like CNN itself, a Democrat Party operative.

Her only job is to shield and protect Democrats by ensuring that their utter failures in leadership never see the light of day.

This is why she’s angry and resentful.

This is why she’s targeting Kimberly Klacik.

It’s the proverbial “shooting the messenger.”

Klacik exposed the very truth April Ryan is trying desperately to hide – namely that Elijah Cummings got fat, rich and happy while his constituents were living in squalor.

But in the end, April’s reckless attack on Kimberly Klacik might just backfire on her in a big, big way.

Here’s hoping it does.

    Oh yeah!
    She MADE her do it!
    She Made Trump “attack” Cummings!
    She made the mess in Baltimore and blamed Cummings for it!
    “The horror…the horror.”

    No one is credible @CNN. How do they sleep at night? Answer : probably with Quaaludes also known as Methaqualone.

    Truth or Love: What’s Your Choice?

    We live in a post-truth society—that’s what The Economist claimed two months ago. Not long ago, the Oxford English Dictionary chose “post-truth” as its Word of the Year. Go back a bit further and having 11 percent of America believe that you are “honest and trustworthy” was good enough to have a 9 percent lead in the race to be the next President of the United States.

    But of course even the polls were post-true.

    We are very confused about the truth:
    There’s the truth, and then there’s the naked truth.
    There’s the truth, and then there’s the gospel truth (though the Gospel is taken to be obviously false).
    There’s the honest truth, and then there’s the God’s honest truth (but that has nothing to do with God).

    We stretch the truth and bend the truth and twist the truth.
    We bury the truth because the truth hurts.
    When we want some­thing to be false, we knock on wood.
    When we want something to be true, we cross our fingers.
    Which wooden cross are we trusting in?

    Why do we have such a confused relationship with the truth?

    Fear. …. We are afraid of truth.

    Truth has so often been abused that experience has taught us the trajectory of truth—the trajectory of believing you are right and others are wrong—is from truth to disagreement to devaluing to intolerance to extremism to violence to terrorism ….

    And if that is the trajectory, then those committed to truth are in fact terrorists in the making. If that is the trajectory, then truth is an act of war, and an act of war leaves you with only two options: fight or flee.

    Most of Western society is fleeing. Everything around us is structured to avoid disagreement about the truth: We spend most of our time on Facebook and Twitter where we can “like” and “retweet” but there is no option to “dislike.”

    Sports no longer teach us how to disagree. In professional sports, we replay every call to avoid disagreement. In youth sports, we don’t keep score and everyone gets a trophy.

    When it comes to dating, we use online sites that “match” us with someone so similar in beliefs, background, and personality that as much disagreement as possible is avoided.
    We no longer meet people different from us at coffee shops because we go to drive-thru Starbucks.
    We no longer meet people while shopping because everything we could ever need or want is delivered to our door.
    Culturally, everything around us is set up to avoid disagreement.

    The alternative to fleeing is fighting. I was walking around Oxford University a few months ago, and two guys walking just ahead of me were having a spirited conversation about how crazy they found certain Christian positions on ethical issues. One of them wondered out loud whether the only solution would be to shame Christians out of their positions. His friend quickly responded, “Yeah, that’s what we should do! We should ridicule them mercilessly in the most insensitive ways we can think of.”
    That’s an exact quote.
    Then they both made a right turn and swiped their faculty cards to enter the University of Oxford Theoretical Physics building. These were probably scholars at Oxford, a place that prides itself on intellectual freedom and the exchange of ideas, and ‘merciless, insensitive ridicule’ was the best they could come up with for resolving disagreement. I found myself wondering how many beliefs they hold in theoretical physics that one day will be considered ridiculous.

    How does one get to this point?

    How does someone get to the point where ‘merciless ridicule’ seems like the best way forward?

    I think it’s because you come to see Truth as more important than Love.

    If Truth is greater than Love, then you fight—then the end goal of Truth justifies whatever means necessary, whether the means of haughty academics or the means of ISIS.

    If truth is greater than love, then love is a temptation—a distraction threatening to avert our attention from what is truly important; then those who disagree with us are enemies, and warmth toward our enemies must be extinguished in favor of the cold, hard facts.

    The alternative is that Love is greater than Truth. Then you flee. You flee from the dangers of Truth and adopt a pluralism that assures us “All truths are equally valid.”

    Does that include the claim that all truth claims are not equally valid?

    One college student recently told my colleague, Abdu Murray, that he doesn’t believe it is his place to disagree with anyone.
    Abdu said, “Sure you do.”
    The student said, “No I don’t.”
    Abdu said, “You just did.”

    Philosophically, that’s how quickly pluralism runs into incoherence.

    But if truth starts you down a path that ends in extremism, violence, and terrorism, then philosophical incoherence might seem like a price worth paying.

    Either Truth is greater than Love or Love is greater than Truth. Fight or flee. This is the cultural ultimatum we are living in. What’s your choice?

    Maybe there’s another way. Jesus disagreed with us. His very coming was an act of disagreement with us—a statement that we require saving because our lives have disagreed so badly with what God intended for them.

    But Jesus’s loving sacrifice for us was the very content of his disagreement; it was his very statement that we are sinners in need of a savior. God cut the link between disagreement and devaluing by making His communication of Truth one and the same as His communication of Love.

    Not ‘Truth is greater than Love.’
    Not ‘Love is greater than Truth.’
    “God is love” (1John 4:8), and God is Truth (John 14:6).
    And therefore Love is Truth.

    Only in Jesus does truth equal love, and therefore only Jesus can get us out of the cultural ultimatum we are stuck in: fight or flee.

    Every other worldview makes a choice between Love and Truth. Jesus refused to because in Him, and only in Him, Love and Truth are one and the same.

    So the next time we have a choice between Love and Truth, let’s refuse to choose. Instead, let’s remember when the Truth—Jesus Himself—was stretched.

    Let’s remember when the Truth was twisted and bent, when the Truth was naked.
    Let’s remember when the Truth hurt, and when the Truth was buried.
    Let us remember which wooden Cross we are trusting in.
    And let us remember that Love that is not Truth is not Love, and Truth that is not Love is not Truth.

    Why does April Ryan hate black people ??

  • November 11, 2019 at 10:00 pm

    It seems to me that President Trump made the remarks after Rep. Cummings took a couple of swipes at the boarder patrol and ice people. By now you would think that hitting at any part of the executive branch will bring some form of retaliation.
