The Patriot Post® · An Unrelenting Leftist Hatefest
November 8, 2016, was a watershed moment in American history. It was the night when decades of leftist propaganda, all centered around the self-aggrandizing assertion they were the most tolerant and enlightened people in the nation, was revealed as utterly fraudulent.
In its place, hate and hysteria, rigidly enforced by rank hypocrisy — directed at Donald Trump, his family, his associates and his supporters — has become the dominant mindset in the leftist universe.
Roseanne Barr was universally scorned for her racist tweets directed at Barack Obama’s senior adviser Valerie Jarrett. Meanwhile, MSNBC’s Joy Reid engaged in anti-homosexual blogging and lied about it. Moreover, newly discovered blog entries included the image of Sen. John McCain’s head photoshopped onto the body of the Virginia Tech shooter, suggestions that Israeli Jews should go back to Europe, and a post that encouraged her readers to check out “Loose Change 9/11,” alleging the 9/11 terrorist attacks were perpetrated by the U.S. government.
By contrast, Reid not only remains on the air, she was tapped to host an MSNBC town hall, “Everyday Racism in America,” only hours after Barr’s tweet. Reid was joined by Jarrett, who spoke about Barr’s tweet as a “teachable moment” — while sitting next to Al Sharpton, whose use of the “n word,” rants about “Chinamen” and “Greek homos” and an anti-Semitic reference to a Jewish shopkeeper with a store in Harlem as a “white interloper” earned him a job at MSNBC, numerous visits to Barack Obama’s White House, and a 2014 Politico column describing him as the former president’s “go to man on race.”
The contemptible double standard that tossed Barr under the bus while Reid was not only protected by her network but legitimized as a spokesperson on race is also a “teachable moment.”
For the double standard on steroids we turn to Samantha Bee. On her TBS-hosted show, “Full Frontal,” the so-called comedienne referred to Ivanka Trump as a “feckless c—t” on a program that is scripted, edited and pre-taped — meaning it had the approval, not only of Bee, but TBS itself, before being aired. Bee apologized and TBS stated that it was “our mistake too, and we regret it.”
Mistake? Columnist Maggie Serota called it a “calculated risk measured against the cheap outrage it would incur from the opportunistic right which makes the swift apology all the more disappointing.”
Cheap outrage from the opportunistic Right? Serota is a member in good standing of a deranged Left that sought to justify Bee’s shamelessness. Propagandist Michael Moore called it a “brilliant rant against Ivanka.” “Honestly I think Samantha Bee was being generous,” wrote comedian Billy Eichner. Actress Sally Field took it another direction, tweeting, “I like Samantha Bee a lot, but she is flat wrong to call Ivanka a c—t. C—s are powerful, beautiful, nurturing and honest.”
Really, Ms. Field? So if Bee had referred to, say, Michelle Obama the same way, you’d applaud it? Would Bee still be receiving an award like she got Thursday night at the TV Academy’s annual Honors event? Moreover, where are the pu—y-hatted storm troopers of the Woman’s Marches and their #MeToo movement? Their silence is especially deafening — and quite revealing.
Leftist women are “more equal” than non-leftist women.
It gets worse. Leftists are so invested in smearing the president, “guilt by association” is reaching metastatic levels. As recently as last Thursday, Google listed Nazism as one of the California Republican Party’s ideologies in its “knowledge panel” next to its search results.
Like Reid, Google blamed someone else for the “error.” “Sometimes people vandalize public information sources, like Wikipedia, which can impact the information that appears in search,” a spokesperson for the company told Fox News.
Those “vandals” have been busy. Google’s knowledge panel also labeled North Carolina Republican state senator Trudy Wade a bigot.
What was/is genuine Nazism? Among many things, it was the co-option of hate and hysteria into a political movement, replete with a specific group of people who were/are demonized as the root cause of every societal problem.
In America, the fringe, or “alt-right” as they are now labeled by the media, behave in exactly that manner. On the other side of the political divide, a panoply of groups embraced by mainstream leftists and the Democrat/Media Complex routinely demonize those they deem to be beneath contempt. The Black Lives Matter movement demonizes “murderous” police. The LGBTQ community demonizes “bigoted” Christians. Academia demonizes “privileged” white males and allows conservative speakers to be shouted down or run off campus in fear of their lives. Bicoastal elitists contemptuously dismiss the entire middle of the nation as “flyover country,” populated by those described by the last two Democrat Party standard-bearers as “deplorables,” xenophobes and misogynists, (Hillary Clinton), who “cling to guns, God and religion,” and maybe “just want to fall back into their tribe” (Barack Obama).
What is genuine bigotry? “Roseanne’s problem turned out to be that she far too authentically represented the actual worldview of a significant chunk of the Trump base,” tweeted MSNBC’s Chris Hayes. “Haters and losers may the Trump’s most durable base of support,” stated columnist Erin Gloria Ryan. “There’s No Such Thing as a Good Trump Voter” states the title of a Jamelle Bouie column. Pro-Trump black voters are “useful idiots,” declared Juan Williams.
“The Left’s carnage-inducing words and images have reached their apotheosis,” columnist Deroy Murdock asserted. “It’s far past time for liberals to stop whining about an election they lost fair and square, leash the dogs of war, and, instead, craft a positive agenda for the American people.”
Murdock wrote that column just under a year ago — shortly after a socialist opened fire on a baseball diamond filled with Republican lawmakers, nearly killing Rep. Steve Scalise. And despite his assertion that leftist hatred had reached its apotheosis, contempt for Trump and his supporters has intensified, not waned.
“Everything changed once Trump got elected,” asserts Fox TV host Tucker Carlson. “Celebrities threatened to abandon this country, business leaders started behaving like political activists. Candidates for office embraced positions so extreme that they had rejected them just months before. News reporters became rigid propagandists.”
Compared to what? A re-ignited North Korea summit. An American embassy in Jerusalem, fulfilling a promise made in 1995. A"right-to-try" bill giving gravely ill patients access to experimental drugs. Record wage growth and record-low unemployment for blacks.
The Left’s reaction? “May’s jobs report shows that strong employment numbers mean little to the families hit with soaring new costs under the Republicans’ watch,” asserts Nancy Pelosi. “There’s no question today’s job report is good news, including the news that we’re as closest we’ve ever been to full employment in the black community. But what’s full employment without full respect?” asks CNN anchor Don Lemon.
Far better for Americans than your racist presumptions and the Left’s unrelenting hatred and hysteria, Mr. Lemon.
