They can’t stand other opinions. They can’t. They cannot be allowed to live. The people who hold them must be targeted and smeared. All must bow before the unholy altar of American progressivism. If you can’t convince them, destroy them, or deprogram them. That’s what The Washington Post’s Eugene Robinson and Nikole Hannah-Jones wanted yesterday. Grabien’s Tom Elliott clipped the madness.
People who support Trump are mentally defective, so they must be deprogrammed. What does that mean? Sounds Stalinist in the extreme. It also reeks of Chinese Cultural Revolution underpinnings. Those who do not believe what we believe are off to the camps. It’s nothing new. It only exposes the illiberal nature of the progressive Left. There can be no deviations. ALL must bow to the narrative. You must take this position on this issue or risk annihilation. Ever wonder why so many liberal policies are intrusive and mandatory? They don’t want to bother convincing you anymore, partially because most voters can see on its face that most of what liberal America offers is trash. That’s why you’re forced to do things with a gun to your head. You’ve seen the memes.
On Thursday, news sites including the Washington Post, Vox, Newsweek, the Mirror, and the Huffington Post, displayed graphic hardcore pornography on some old articles.
Articles dating from 2015 to 2017 on a number of news websites that include embedded videos, including some with young audiences, are now displaying the pornography, all from a site called “5 Star HD Porn.” The discovery was first spotted by anonymous posters on 4chan, with a thread posted on the website’s /pol/ board detailing a number of articles that had been afflicted. The pornographic titles include such names as “Abigal and Eva are hungry for c*ck,” and “Megan gets stretched out.”
The articles ranged from “serious” mainstream news articles, such as a Washington Post story from January 2017 about Paul Ryan stopping somebody from dabbing in a photo, a Huffington Post article from May 2017 about Martin Shkreli being permanently banned from Twitter, and an article from the Australian’s Herald Sun from June 2016 about the age of an Australian NBA player. Other affected sites including Vox, the Mirror, Rolling Stone, Business Insider Australia, Newsweek, Kotaku, Vanity Fair, and most disturbingly, Teen Vogue.
On Wednesday’s Andrea Mitchell Reports, MSNBC regulars fearmongered about the possibility that the world will become uninhabitable for humans unless the Joe Biden administration can enact regulations on the fossil fuel industry that were blocked by President Donald Trump.
MSNBC weekend host Jonathan Capehart made absurd suggestions that humans might have to fly into space to find a place to live: “We have to get a handle on this — otherwise, we’re all going to be looking for seats on… the Branson rocket — the Bezos rocket — the Musk rocket up for another place that’s habitable for human life.”
Historian Jon Meacham hinted that there might not be anyone alive in the future to admonish their ancestors for not acting in the present.
Host Andrea Mitchell began the segment by blaming “climate change” for recent weather disasters involving wildfires and flooding. “And extreme weather wreaking havoc worldwide as the experts say climate change taking place even faster with greater impact than ever predicted.” She then brought aboard Meacham and began by asking him if the current extreme weather events are a critical time in history.
A leaked internal email from CNN’s Washington bureau chief complains that the “carrot” is no longer working in terms of convincing Americans to get vaccinated and that authorities need to start using the “stick.”
The message, which was mistakenly sent to conservative activist Charlie Kirk, was only intended to be seen by other CNN colleagues.
Although Fox News didn’t name the individual responsible for the comment during an interview segment between Tucker Carlson and Kirk, CNN’s Washington bureau chief is also the network’s senior vice president, Sam Feist.
The email’s subject line was, “FW: #NEWS: A majority of unvaccinated Americans say they’re unlikely to get the Covd-19 vaccine, regardless of outreach efforts.”
“This is the point re: carrot vs. stick. The carrot is no longer going to work,” wrote the author in the body of the email.
In an act of striking transparency, Florida Agricultural Commissioner and self-proclaimed “qualified candidate for governor” Nikki Fried accidentally admitted that the corporate media is controlled by the Democratic Party.
“Ron DeSantis has Fox News, but we have everyone else. Florida will be blue in 2022,” Fried tweeted.
The Democrat Florida gubernatorial candidate’s tweet displays her confidence not only in the corporate media’s overwhelming left-wing bias but also that this bias can and will be leveraged to propel her and other Democrats to electoral success in the 2022 elections. But while Fried boasts about this one-sidedness, Americans’ trust in the media has spiraled downward, with the annual Edelman Trust Barometer, shared exclusively with Axios, revealing it is at an all-time low.
“For the first time ever, fewer than half of all Americans have trust in traditional media,” Axios said in January, citing the poll and reporting that 58 percent of Americans believe that “most news organizations are more concerned with supporting an ideology or political position than with informing the public.”
The White House is not only stepping up its campaign to bring pressure to bear on online content and providers and sources that the Biden administration considers to be misinformation, but is also broadening the scope of the narrative and potential targets of censorship.
After recently announcing plans to “hold platforms accountable” for spreading misinformation – a point White House comms director Kate Bedingfield is telling the media President Biden spoke about “aggressively” – it’s now the turn of conservative news outlets to get a warning.
“There are conservative news outlets who are creating irresponsible content,” Bedingfield said.
Loving America is Hate Speech.
This is the toxic rhetoric pushed by the far left.
They hate America and don’t even hide it anymore.
Why hide it?
MSNBC tech reporter Dan Patterson warned viewers to be on the lookout for hate speech like “patriot” online.
It is used by a very dangerous group of Americans.
California Representative Ro Khanna announced on Monday that he’d just hung out with Iraq war architect Bill Kristol and had a wonderful exchange of ideas, fully discrediting the myth of the progressive Democrat with a single tweet.
“Bill Kristol is one of the most thoughtful voices in defending liberalism and democratic institutions in our country,” Khanna tweeted. “Learned a lot in our conversation about shaping also an inclusive narrative around American patriotism.”
When Khanna’s Twitter followers began reacting with shock and disgust at a congressman who is generally regarded as one of the most progressive elected officials on Capitol Hill saying sweet things about a murderous arch-neocon, he added:
“I was a strong and early critic of the war in Iraq, and Kristol and I have very different worldviews on foreign policy. But to have a discussion about strengthening liberalism and liberal institutions with people you disagree is in my view needed in a pluralistic democracy.”
“I’m back in the office after a stimulating lunch with Ro Khanna and see he’s tweeted about it,” Kristol posted on Twitter. “Which is fine! But not with some on the Left! I’m sure Ro can take the heat. As for me, I benefited from our talk, and admire Ro’s willingness to argue—and occasionally (gasp!) agree.”
It’s really odious how they’re framing this get-together as two men from differing ideological backgrounds overcoming their little disagreements to find common ground. We’re talking about someone who has pushed for psychopathic acts of military violence at every opportunity throughout his entire career, and has had an ungodly amount of success in doing so. As the co-founder of the influential neoconservative think tank Project for the New American Century and major Bush administration thought leader, Kristol played a key role in manufacturing support for the invasion of Iraq and ushering in an unprecedented new era of US military expansionism, a fact for which he remains completely unapologetic.
The invasion killed at least a million Iraqis, and arguably more than twice that. We’re not talking about two people setting aside their disagreements about farming subsidies or net neutrality here, we’re talking about fucking murder. Murder at a scale so massive it’s impossible to fully wrap your mind around it. Mass murder is not a difference of opinion, it’s mass murder. It’s no more an ideological position than stomping on kittens is an ideological position.
Saying you disagree with Bill Kristol’s engineering the Iraq war but found plenty of common ground on liberalism and patriotism is the same as saying you disagree with Jared Fogle on his raping children but found plenty of common ground on his fondness for Subway sandwiches.
It’s like announcing you just had lunch with serial killer Edmund Kemper and, while you disagree with his policy of murdering women and copulating with their severed heads, you really respect his opinions on immigration.
I’m actually being charitable here. There’s not a pedophile or serial killer on earth who has contributed as much death and suffering to our world as William Kristol.
