Reza Aslan, an extremely inflammatory “journalist” who is a host at CNN, said in 2012 that wanted a Republican congressman to be raped and that he didn’t want to be misunderstood, he meant it.
Just to be clear I was indeed wishing someone would rape congressman Todd Akin. I’d hate to be misunderstood.

The tweet somehow went unnoticed for a long period of time but was just recently discovered.
People exploded in rage over the tweet and the fact that CNN employs someone who calls for violent crimes against others…

It has been a rough few weeks for CNN with Kathy Griffin making a beheading video, being caught staging a fake protest, and now this.
CNN is a disgrace!
