Jeff Zucker, CEO of CNN

To the CEO of CNN, Jeff Zucker:

Kathy Griffin, the B-list comedian who you feature as a host for your annual New Year's Eve coverage, thinks a faux-murderous photo shoot is comedy. She is depicted in an ISIS-style photo holding a severed and bloodied prop head that looks like President Trump. This isn't art and her pathetic apologies after-the-fact aren't enough.

President Trump's opponents on the left continually charge his supporters with inciting violence. Yet, Kathy Griffin, an ardent anti-Trumper, is doing exactly that. It was done in a clear attempt to stir up hatred and normalize violent images.

This is becoming a very scary trend on the left and must be stopped. Since Trump was inaugurated in January we have seen the following:

1. Kathy Griffin 'beheaded' The President
2. Snoop Dogg 'shot' The President in a music video
3. The President's 11 year-old son was called a 'future serial killer' & 'animal mutilator' by prominent writers on Twitter
4. Madonna declared, to a cheering audience, that we should 'blow up the White House'
5. Teacher suspended for pointing a 'gun' at Trump, screaming 'Die! Die! Die!'
6. Sarah Silverman calls for an American 'military overthrow' of Trump
7. Stephen Colbert went on a vulgar rant that spurred an FCC investigation

To the head of CNN, we demand that you remove Kathy Griffin from your New Year's Even line-up and refuse to provide her any airtime on your network. Violence doesn't deserve a mouthpiece.

Signed,

Conservative Corps
