Senior Newsweek writer falsely claims ‘racist voter suppression’ to blame for Clinton-Trump tie

On Thursday, Newsweek senior writer Alexander Nazaryan issued a tweet in which he claimed that “racist voter suppression” is the reason GOP nominee Donald Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton are tied in North Carolina.


“Racist voter suppression does wonders for your chances of winning a state,” he wrote.


“The senior writer didn’t explain what he specifically meant by his statement, but it could be a reference to a recent lawsuit filed by the NAACP that alleges that several counties in the Tarheel State “disproportionately target[ed] blacks” when they purged their voter rolls,” Newsbusters Matthew Balan wrote.

It turns out that Nazaryan has a bit of a history when it comes to comments like this.

Balan added:

Nazaryan got into hot water earlier in 2016, after he likened Ted Cruz’s campaign to the Nazis on Twitter. The liberal writer later deleted the Tweet, and said his smear was “not fair to his totally decent supporters, as much as dislike the man himself.” He also revealed how far his “dislike” for the Texas senator went: “Ted Cruz is an atrocity of a human being.”

He also targeted Trump supporters:


But hey, there’s no bias here, right?  If you think there is, chances are you’re a Russian agent, according to the insane left.

Keep in mind this is the same Newsweek that declared Obama “god of all things” back in November 2010:

Newsweek god of all thingsAnd it seems the publication really hates conservatives

No bias there, right?
