ANALYSIS/OPINION:

What is going on over at “Fair and Balanced” headquarters?

Fox News made its lede story Monday night that 11 Pittsburgh members of a national left-wing “social justice ” group calling itself “Bend the Arc” wrote an open letter saying President Trump is not welcome in Pittsburgh unless he renounces “white nationalism.”

Eleven?

White nationalism?

Why is that news?

Why is that Fox News news?

News is man bites dog, not dog bites man and certainly not hate-filled liberals bite Mr. Trump.

The Tree of Life synagogue in Squirrel Hill, where I grew up, has extended a welcome to the president in advance of his planned visit on Tuesday.

“The president of the United States is always welcome,” Rabbi Jeffrey Myers said. “I’m a citizen. He’s my president. He is certainly welcome.”

Not at all the message out of the midtown Manhattan headquarters of The New York Times, the paper that prints only the news that’s fit to print (as it defines “fit”).

You could practically see the regretful sweat and blood spilling from pores of The Times management as it forced itself to allow these words to appear in one of the paper’s stories about the psychopath’s murder of Jews in Pittsburgh:

“Not all Jewish leaders said Mr. Trump was unwelcome. Rabbi Jeffrey Myers, who was in the sanctuary leading a service for the Tree of Life congregation during the shootings, told CNN on Monday: ‘I’m a citizen. He’s my president. He is certainly welcome.’ “

Imagine, The Times having to acknowledge that “not all” Pittsburghers want to tell the president of the United States he is unwelcome in their city.

As for Bend the Arc, it may as well next write an open letter asking Mr. Trump: Yes or no, have you stopped beating your dog, starving your cat and silently worshiping Satan before you retire at night?

Will Fox News devote a half-hour news special to his refusal to answer the dog, cat and Satan question?

Will Mr. Trump’s Justice Department in the person of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein appoint a special counsel?

To do what?

To investigate whether Mr. Trump engaged in a hate crime in refusing to renounce his obvious lifelong involvement in the belief and practice of white nationalism?

And if not, why not, Mr. Rosenstein?

Hear that dog whistle?

Just as the blame-America-and-Trump-first left has long suspected, Mr. Rosenstein is a secret member of the white nationalist, Satanist, dog-beating, cat-starving movement.

If found guilty, he could be sentenced to a week of nonstop replays of the arrogant press corps’ insultingly framed questions to press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders at Monday’s White House press conference.

Or if convicted a second time for the same offense, he could face repeated replays of Shepard Smith explaining that nationalism is really the same philosophical basis of the National Socialist German Workers Party and Benito Mussolini’s fascist movement.

Instead of, as Mr. Trump insists it is, a desire to put the welfare, safety and advancement of one’s own country ahead of all others while respecting the sovereignty, value and right to self-determination of all others countries and their cultures.
