Reporter Gets Horrific Death Threats After Exposing Creator Of Trump’s CNN Tweet

Over the past 48 hours, one of the main topics of discussion has been a strange video President Trump tweeted out on Sunday which shows him violently assaulting a man who has a CNN logo superimposed over his face. Apparently this is Trump’s way of saying that he hates CNN and wants to body slam them if given a chance.

Shortly after the video was released, Jared Yates Sexton, a journalist who teaches writing and linguistics at Georgia Southern University, revealed that the video the president had retweeted had been created by a Reddit user with the name “HanAssholeSolo.”

HanAssholeSolo, it should be noted, is fond of posting anti-Semitic and anti-Islamic threats on Reddit. Earlier this month, he even posted a list of all the Jewish employees of CNN. In other words, he’s a racist douchebag who is one of the reasons there’s so much hatred and intolerance in the world. Yep, he’s your typical Trump supporter.

Sexton now reports that he’s been receiving extremely graphic and disturbing death threats from other racist pieces of shit who have suddenly decided that he’s the bad guy:

Has the Trump administration spoken out on the subject of these threats against a man who did nothing other than make the public aware of where such hateful images are coming from? The silence from Trump and all of his associates has been deafening.

This is all part of a larger narrative taking place in our country now that we have Donald Trump in the White House. Trump has trafficked in threats and intimidation for decades, and now he has the ultimate forum from which he can broadcast his hate speech.

But it’s important to reiterate that journalism, a free press, and the First Amendment are not the enemies here. The enemy is the festering, cancerous pustule who resides in the Oval Office and goes by the name Donald J. Trump. He is complicit in the increasing violence against minorities and others who disagree with him that we see across our country. And all of this will eventually lead to his downfall.

We must all realize something important about this moment in our nation’s history, and we must band together to defeat it. As Jared Sexton himself noted:

The cancer is growing, but rest assured it will eventually be excised.
