Viewers were astounded and confused at the bizarre comparison CNN’s Wolf Blitzer made during the cable network’s coverage of the terrible terrorist attack in Barcelona Thursday.
Jim Sciutto seemed to make the attempt to tie the attack in Barcelona to that in Charlottesville by white supremacist at an “alt-right” rally against left-wing counter-protesters.
“But the final point I would make, Wolf, is just this note,” Schiutto said, “that in light of the uproar of the last several days, 5 days apart you have a white supremacist in Charlottesville use a vehicle to kill, and here you have attackers at least following the modus operandi of terrorists, using vehicles apparently to kill as well” . . .
Some took to twitter to criticize Blitzer for offering that terrorists in Europe might have been somehow inspired by the white supremacist attack in Virginia.

@wolfblitzer Really, Barcelona a copycat of what happened in Cville? Seriously? Can you not provide fodder to the fake news narrative?
