Bari Weiss Explains How the World Has Gone Mad

Bari Weiss is no right-winger, but she is sensible enough to have been bullied out of the liberal establishment. A second-rate intellect like Brian Stelter should never have let her on his show, much less throw her a hanging slider like the antagonistic question, “In what ways has the world gone mad?”

It was like watching a line drive take the pitcher’s head off:

In other words, the moonbattery Brian Stelter ineptly markets is depraved and tyrannical.

Defund the Media

Americans are zeroing in on their true enemies — namely, the Biden Regime and the “mainstream” establishment media largely responsible for placing it in power and propping it up with an endless barrage of authoritarian propaganda. In NYC Saturday, protesters against vaccine mandates and the media that pushes them marched from Times Square.

Freedomnews.TV reports:

The protesters stopped at the New York Times Building where they chanted “Defund The Media” and put stickers on the front door that read: “The media is the virus.”

They then marched to Hudson Yards where they chanted more against CNN.

The video is encouraging:

“Defund the media” is a play on the moonbat mantra to defund the police. Aside from the mealy-mouthed Marxists on PBS and NPR, most of the MSM is not directly funded by taxpayers yet, although Democrats want to directly subsidize the propagandists who keep them in power.

The Let’s Go Brandon slogan was also in evidence; it was highly appropriate, given that it both defies Biden and ridicules the media.

Simple and to the Point

The Let’s Go Brandon message needs to be spread at every possible opportunity. As the man says, it is simple and to the point, expressing resistance to both the corrupt, incompetent Marxist in the White House and the mendacious media establishment that put him there:

You can even set the message to rap (R-rated version):

Katie Couric Gave Ruth Bader Ginsburg Ideological Whitewash

Moonbats worship the late leftist Supreme Court justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. However, not even the notorious RBG achieved perfect wokeness. Her place in the liberal pantheon was secured in part by whitewashing by information gatekeeper Katie Couric:

Couric selectively edited her 2016 interview with Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg by omitting negative comments the justice made about those who kneel during the national anthem, she admitted in her new memoir.

At the time, everyone but fringe leftists understood that the fading mediocrity Colin Kaepernick behaved contemptibly by indulging in disrespectful antics during the anthem, the Black Lives Matter propaganda blitz that mainstreamed his posturing not having occurred.

Ginsburg told Couric she was opposed to the action, saying those who kneel during the anthem were showing “contempt for a government that has made it possible for their parents and grandparents to live a decent life,” according to new reporting by the Daily Mail.

That opinion was left on the cutting room floor. Couric left in Ginsburg’s remark that kneeling athletes are “dumb and disrespectful,” but without letting her explain why.

Looks like Ginsburg tried to walk back her comments anyway, having realized that she had strayed off the liberal reservation:

[T]he day after their sit-down, the head of public affairs for the Supreme Court emailed Couric to say the late justice had “misspoken” and asked that it be removed from the story.

This isn’t the first time Katie Cupcake has employed selective editing on behalf of the party line:

[Stephen] Gutowski, reporting for the Washington Free Beacon at the time, broke the story in 2016 that a Couric documentary edited her interview with pro-gun activists to make them look dumbfounded by one of her questions. The documentary showed them sitting in silence after she asked them about how to prevent terrorists and felons from purchasing guns without background checks, but in reality they immediately answered according to their own audio of the interview.

The liberal news establishment is comprised of ham-fisted propagandists whose job is to prop up the Democrat Party and its radical agenda. This is why so-called journalists do not fear censorship but rather scream for more of it.

NBC Sports Gaslights Comically on “F*** Joe Biden” Chant

As the corrupt, demented, tyrannical Marxist creep in the White House systematically destroys our country, the F*** Joe Biden chant grows louder. An NBC Sports reporter interviewing NASCAR driver Brandon Brown at the Talladega Superspeedway was forced to acknowledge it. Her attempt to gaslight was comedy gold:

“Brandon, you also told me— as you can hear the chants from the crowd,” the reporter said as she was interrupted by the raucous crowd chanting, “F*** Joe Biden.”

The reporter, however, said the crowd was chanting “Let’s go Brandon,” in support of Brown’s victory.

NASCAR posted video of the interview on a social media channel but then took it down without explanation. People must have failed to hear what NBC told them to hear.

As his catastrophic presidency flounders, the F*** Joe Biden chant is gaining ground:

The anti-Biden chant has appeared at numerous college football games, a boxing match, an MLB game, and even at the Ryder Cup.

The chants come as Biden faces massive legislative battles on Capitol Hill; sharp criticism over his administration’s handling of the COVID-19 pandemic, border crisis, and Afghanistan withdrawal; and cratering support in polls.

The liberal establishment was able to drag this sick joke across the finish line, but it won’t be able to prop up Biden for long.

Watch this to inoculate yourself against believing anything you are told by the liberal establishment media:

If they will lie this blatantly about something that you can directly perceive with your own ears, imagine how far they stray from the truth on everything else.

60 Minutes to Reveal Facebook Is Insufficiently Repressive

Amazingly enough, 60 Minutes is still on the air, even after frittering away the last dregs of its credibility. Moonbats won’t want to miss it this Sunday, when a whistleblowing insider reveals that Facebook is not sufficiently hostile to free speech to satisfy the CBS thought police:

A former Facebook employee says … Facebook is lying to the public and investors about the effectiveness of its campaigns to eradicate hate, violence and misinformation from its platforms. …

Ahead of the 2020 election, Facebook put safety systems in place in part to reduce the spread of misinformation.

“Misinformation” can be defined as any opinions or factual information contradicting the current party line.

Most of those changes were turned off after the election. She says this is an example of Facebook prioritizing growth over safety and calls it a betrayal of democracy.

Like safeguards against voter fraud, free speech is a betrayal of democracy according to Democrats.

Facebook went out of its way to censor information that might have averted Biden’s election. But CBS is still not satisfied.

It doesn’t occur to liberal media propagandists that after reverence for free speech has been killed off, a shift in power could put them out of business.

New Yorker Magazine Promotes Ecoterrorism

The liberal elite is not moderate. It is radical. The flagship publication of pretentious highbrow liberals even promotes the crippling of the economy through ecoterrorism:

New Yorker magazine platformed a Swedish climate change activist who advocates blowing up pipelines in the name of climate justice on a recent episode of its “New Yorker Radio Hour” podcast.

The term “climate justice” is a warning that you have entered the realm of dangerous maniacs.

Andreas Malm is an associate professor at Sweden’s Lund University, and the author of the book “How to Blow Up a Pipeline: Learning to Fight in a World on Fire.” Malm’s book does not only have an eye-catching title; he actually advocates destroying any and all fossil fuel infrastructure.

“Damage and destroy new CO2-emitting devices,” Malm exhorts his readers.

Every mechanical device emits harmless CO2 in its operation and/or production, as does every human with each exhalation.

Modern environmentalism is a cover not just for communism, but for psychopathic nihilism. Not that Malm is not a Marxist:

“Property,” writes Andreas Malm, “will cost us the earth.”

Back when insufferable frauds like Leonard Bernstein were throwing parties for the Black Panther Party, extreme moonbat posturing was known as “radical chic.” With the federal government actually inflicting lunatic policies based on radical left ideology, it is no longer a harmless pose.

Vote for the people New Yorker wants you to and there is no need to dynamite pipelines; Joe Biden will destroy them. The effect — skyrocketing energy prices — is the same as if an Earth First radical did it with dynamite. The effect on the supposedly endangered climate is also the same: absolutely nil.

Malm predictably used the megaphone provided to him by the New Yorker to promote the destruction of property, explicitly calling for blowing up the pipelines needed to efficiently transport resources. New Yorker is unlikely to amplify viewpoints the leftist ruling class does not endorse. Imagine hearing someone on a New Yorker podcast worry about the effects of displacing the white working class with easily exploitable masses imported from the Third World.

Other pillars of the liberal establishment that have provided a sympathetic platform for Malm’s sociopathic views include the New York Times and the New Republic. Vox cofounder Ezra Klein has compared the ecoterrorism Malm calls for to the American Revolution and the civil rights movement, although Klein at least acknowledges that driving up energy prices by destroying pipelines hurts the poor the most.

So as to enjoy the cushy life of a college professor rather than risk prison, Malm leaves it to others to sabotage pipelines. However, he has admitted to deflating the tires of SUVs in order to save the climate. Seriously.

Exploited Child Gets Covid Vaccine for 12th Birthday Present

The establishment “news” media consists of propaganda so ham-fisted, it must trigger the gag reflex even in some liberals. In an NBC News piece demonizing those who won’t succumb to Covid panic, we are manipulated by the heart-breaking story of police officer Charles Roberts, who died of Covid at age 45 because — according to his widow — other people didn’t take it seriously enough. To quote:

“He took the virus very seriously, but because other people all didn’t, and there wasn’t vaccinations then, and there wasn’t great testing… I mean, he never had the opportunity to get the vaccine…”

Whether the vaccine was not available at the time or he chose not to get it is unclear. Given how long it’s been out there, the latter seems more likely.

Now she is honoring his memory by getting their son vaxxed for his 12th birthday. Giving a child that young a vaccine for a disease that is not serious in children when the long-term consequences of the vaccine are unknown does not seem wise, but parents are advised to consult with their doctors. Do not consult with the moonbats running the news media.

Everyone’s heart goes out to bereaved families. But that is all the more reason to resent the media exploiting grief to lead us around by the nose. Actual statistics would be more helpful than tearjerker tales regarding whether kids should get the jab.

The YouTube comments are a hoot. A few samples:

I’m not convinced his birthday wish wasn’t for a ‘Great Reset’.

He’ll have a booster in celebration of Thanksgiving

When I was 12, all I ever wanted was a needle in my arm…. No toys, no PlayStation, Nintendo or Xbox.. Just a needle.. Said NO child ever

He will be taking them boosters for the rest of his life.

As a Birthday gift when I was 12, my mom took me to get my very first colonoscopy, I was so excited

Truly… the most pathetic, cringe-worthy thing I’ve ever seen in television

Omg, his mouth is an extension of his mother’s

This is so heartbreaking that anyone would do this to a child.

He didn’t need a gift nbc paid him enough to buy his own

Totally thought they were paid actors until the mom said they were not paid actors.

They forgot to tell you that he actually was bought a candy bar for his birthday and found his golden vaccination card within

As we all know, children LOVE shots! Why wouldn’t this kid want one for his birthday? Your propaganda is pathetic.

On and on they go, with virtually every comment expressing extreme skepticism. The media has cashed in the last of its credibility hyping Covid hysteria. This is actually a good thing, since NBC News et al. will have none left to help Democrats inflict lockdown-level tyranny in the name of the global warming hoax.

Superman Versus the Anti-Vaxxers

Comic books are good for more than promoting sexual perversion and anti-Americanism. Liberal establishmentarians also use them to spread Covid propaganda.

Tim Pool and Jack Posobiec remind us how lucky we are to have been of the age to read comic books back before leftists subverted them:

Once a cultural medium has been taken over by moonbats, it is useless as anything but a woke propaganda organ.

Ultimate Moonbat Headline

At least the lefties at Jacobin named their publication appropriately. Merriam-Webster defines “Jacobin” as “a member of an extremist or radical political group.” Wikipedia adds that in France, where the term originated during the nightmarish French Revolution, nowadays “Jacobin” usually refers to an advocate of “strong central government powers and/or supporters of extensive government intervention to transform society.” A Jacobin is a left-wing maniac of the type that produced this actual headline:

You Know Who Else Opposed Vaccine Mandates? Hitler.

The article proves that if you oppose Joe Biden’s handlers forcing you to take a vaccine regardless of whether it makes any sense for you, you are literally just like Hitler. Hitler relaxed vaccine mandates because he was bad and wanted people to die. Anyone who opposes vaccine mandates must have the same motive.

Give it up, Babylon Bee. Today’s leftists are impossible to parody.

Climate Math at The Economist

Formerly prestigious pillars of the liberal establishment like The Economist have cashed in their credibility to prop up the anthropogenic global warming hoax. Once again, Tony Heller counters today’s media propaganda with what was reported earlier. Archives reveal that global cooling caused disastrous weather throughout the 1970s, making a mockery of the lies we are told today:

You can see why Ingsoc employed Winston Smith to put down the memory hole past communications from the ruling oligarchy that countered the current party line. To impose the tyranny that the climate change crisis was fabricated to enable, progressives will have to erase the historical record.

CNN’s Kasie Hunt Goes Off Reservation

Uh oh. CNN just hired Kasie Hunt and already she is off the reservation. Check out her Twitter thread on the final day of the recall election that threatened to dethrone California’s personification of the liberal ruling class:

CA GOV BIG PICTURE: One of the top Democrats in the country got caught living like an elite while everyone else suffered. Elites vs. the rest is the driving force in our politics right now and Democrats have a tough needle to thread both in California & nationwide…

Of all the Democrat DAISNAID hypocrites, Newsom is among the most irritating, due to his skeevy cheesiness. Few will forget him dining indoors with lobbyists at the extravagantly expensive French Laundry while other restaurants were forced to close due to the same pointlessly tyrannical Covid restrictions that also shut down public schools while he sent his own to a ritzy private school.

Democrats need to prove they can govern for EVERYBODY, and if you look at California — it’s not necessarily the best test case for national Democrats (see: concern about homelessness, crime, etc) …

Only Biden himself could make it more obvious than Newsom that the Democrat Party serves Democrats alone and is viciously hostile to everyone else.

Republicans not named Trump did learn they had unrealized opportunities with working class voters (including Black and Latino voters) as they watched 2020 returns roll in …

Democrats will have to work hard to prevent Hispanics from assimilating, because once they do, many if not most will switch parties.

Obviously California is a Special Place — but the fact that a Democratic national star in waiting *faced* a recall and then had to fight hard for it midway through the campaign does say a lot about the potential challenges Democrats face across the map …

Only 8 months into his administration, Democrats would have to cheat on an industrial scale to get Biden through a recall election. Already, only mindlessly loyal Democrats approval of this disastrous presidency. As the full impact of this shuffling catastrophe filters through his mainstream media defenses, his support will continue to collapse.

…especially if President Biden can’t demonstrate he’s capable of getting the resurgent pandemic under control, has another competence crisis a la Afghanistan, can’t get his budget plan through Congress, etc.

If there is one thing we can count on with a corrupt, incompetent, senile leftist in the White House, it is more crises coming over the horizon.

Hunt’s astute analysis was not well received by the rest of the liberal media. This thoughtful counteranalysis by an MSNBC “intelligence commentator” is representative:

Let’s hope most of them really are too arrogant to acknowledge their arrogance and rein it in before next year’s midterms.

Rise of Citizen Journalists

A major development over the past few years has been the collapse of the mainstream media’s credibility. By now, only the most clueless fail to realize that the media establishment regards the public as idiot children to be manipulated on behalf of a political agenda. This creates opportunities for citizen journalists like Tim Pool. Mainstream media refugee John Stossel reports on a genuine reporter:

Despite holding some alarmingly left-wing political views, Tim Pool respects free speech and factual reality, which makes him a menace to the liberal establishment. One of him is worth any number of toadies like Lester Holt.

People who want to know what is really going on will keep tuning out Big Media. Good thing for the Democrat Party that it can count on Big Tech, which will surely crack down on Pool and others when they become sufficiently threatening.
