According to the website "Your News Wire" (yournewswire.com, YNW) Denzel Washington said that "Trump's Election Saved Us From Orwellian Police State". He said this in regards to the Devin Nunes memo. This would be the memo in Nunes staff members cherry picked info to falsely state that the FISA warrant to keep an eye on Carter Page relied solely on the Christopher Steele dossier and that falsely claims the FBI lied to a FISA judge by excluding this information.
|"If the Democrats had won the election, we never would have found out they were using false documents to get warrants to spy on American citizens and political opponents. We never would have known this. Think about it!" said Denzel Washington at a press conference in New York. (2/3/2018 yournewswire article by Baxter Dmitry).|
|Willis Hart: On Denzel Washington Recognizing the Potential Nastiness of a Hillary Presidency and Having the Balls to Say Something About it. [YouTube video from Screen Hoopla in which a picture of Denzil is displayed while Mr. Hoopla reads the yournewswire article]. It's nice to know that not everyone in Hollywood is brain-diseased. Well done, Denzel. (2/7/2018 at 3:49pm).|
|Rational Wiki: YourNewsWire... is a Los Angeles-based clickbait fake news website known for disseminating conspiracy theories and misleading information ... Joel Harding (a Kremlin propaganda expert) believed that Russians were using YourNewsWire as a mule or proxy to spread disinformation.|
Regarding Denzel Washington, Snopes says he "has been a supporter of Barack Obama in the past, but as of August 2016 he had not formally endorsed any presidential candidate". So, did Denzel go from being an Obama to a Trump supporter? Given the fact that YNW is a fake news site, I'm guessing no.
|Snopes: There is no evidence that Washington made this comment, though it isn’t the first time he has been accused of being a Trump supporter without factual support. At a red carpet event for his film "Fences" he responded to a question about how he voted in 2016 with "none of your business". YourNewsWire is a fake news site that is notorious for making up sensational quotes and attributing them to celebrities or politicians. For example the site started a false rumor that actor Sylvester Stallone said former President Barack Obama was a "closeted homosexual" and claimed, again falsely, that actress Julia Roberts had said former First Lady Michelle Obama “isn’t fit to clean Melania Trump's toilet". (Did Denzel Washington Say Trump's Election Saved Us From an "Orwellian Police State"?).|
Willis must be suffering from a very serious "brain disease" to be buying into all these fake news story. The YouTube "video" he includes with his post isn't even a video, but someone reading the YNW article while a still picture of Denzel is displayed. Something that SHOULD automatically cause someone interested in the truth to independently verify the claim that Denzel actually said anything of the sort.
Anway, I assume that Willis, given that he says "well done" in regards to the fake quote, agrees with it. Despite it being utter stupidity. Stupidity because Congress JUST reauthorized the FISA law with ZERO changes. So, IF the FISA law means the US is an "Orwellian Police State", the police states persists. Trump's election did NOT "save us" from it. Nunes ONLY objects to this supposed "FISA abuse" in regards to the FISA warrant granted to spy on Carter Page.
|Slate: Last week, Congress passed a bill to reauthorize Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act for six years. Section 702 is the surveillance law that authorizes the government to target foreigners located abroad to collect foreign intelligence information. However, we know that the government also sweeps up substantial quantities of Americans' communications under Section 702. Despite the public's calls for additional privacy protections, Congress passed the bill and called it a reform while hoping that no one would notice that it actually increases privacy risks.|
...the definition of foreign intelligence information that may be collected includes anything that is relevant to U.S. foreign affairs, which means that foreign journalists, activists, scientists, doctors, lawyers, and businesspeople could be targeted. (Americans Wanted More Privacy Protections. Congress Gave Them Fewer by Robyn Green).
So, what Slate is saying is that, Trump's election DID save us from an Orwellian Police state. Looks like I was wrong. I mean that sarcastically, of course. My God, is Willis Hart a trumping moron or what?
BTW, even though I'd absolutely support revising Section 702 of FISA to provide more protections for American citizens (something that has NOT happened under Trump. Although I admit it likely wouldn't have happened under Hillary either) it definitely appears as though the Carter Page warrant was 100% on the up and up. There was no abuse, and that trumpers think the Devin Nunes memo discredits the Mueller investigation (as trumpy moron Sean Hannity believes) is further proof that these people are surely brain diseased. In the extreme.
Video: YouTube Willis includes in his post in which "Screen Hoopla" reads YNW article containing FAKE Denzel Washington quote (3:20). Based on this video, which is 100% BULLSHIT, Willis concludes "that that not everyone in Hollywood is brain-diseased" and offers kudos to Mr. Washington, saying "well done, Denzel" (for having a fake quote attributed to him). Idiot!!!
