On Wednesday morning, House Speaker Paul Ryan announced that he would not be seeking re-election to the House in November. Predictably, the GOP leader’s stepping-down was celebrated by liberals across the Twitterverse.
I had thought the Antifa scum had calmed down after news reports that government was treating them like domestic terrorists. Or, if nothing else, I figured they had gone to ground or under it. This is the first truly demented piece I’ve seen on IGD in some time.
Headlined: “On Yellow Ribbons and Counter-Insurgency: From a Veteran,” it purports to tell a veteran’s view of why America is evil. Certainly, we’ve seen anti-American veterans before. Remember when John Kerry claimed to have tossed his medals?
When it comes to hitting new lows in journalism, never underestimate Univision.
The Huffington Post -- home of some notably hateful rants, like the ex-Washington Post writer who said unlike George W. Bush, "You could argue that even the world’s worst fascist dictators at least meant well" -- has a line contributors can cross. On Sunday night, it was the notion of executing President Trump for treason...and a cast of accessories including Steve Bannon, Kellyanne Fitzpatrick, the Vice President, the Senate Majority Leader, and the Speaker of the House! The unhinged HuffPost contributor was Jason Fuller.
President Trump’s decision to pull out of the Paris Climate Agreement was highly controversial on Thursday, with Democrats and even some Republicans opposing the move. MSNBC, anxious to bring on a level headed dissenter from Trump’s decision, brought Donny Deutsch onto Nicolle Wallace’s Deadline: White House.
Rolling Stone published a February 28 story which featured North Carolina state senator Jeff Jackson (D) who vociferously blamed President Trump for the Jewish community center bomb threats around the nation. Bad timing for him because just three days later, on Friday, a suspect was arrested for the JCC threats. Very inconveniently for Jackson and many liberals the suspect, Juan Thompson, turned out to be an anti-Trump leftist. So what was the reaction of Jackson and the Rolling Stone? Contrition? An apology? Naw. Complete silence.
There has been no shortage of vitriol directed at President Donald Trump, but one CEO recently went beyond criticism to what could be viewed as a threat.Ted Kornblum, Founder and CEO of Magnatone guitar amplifier company, posted on Jan. 30, “Rest easy people, it’ll take only 100 days till Trump gets a bullet in the head!”
Actor and former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger said “Hello” to hypocrisy and “Hasta la vista, baby” to climate purity. The New Celebrity Apprentice started with Schwarzenegger looking suave and putting on sunglasses in a giant, gas-guzzling hummer. What it didn’t explain was the glaring hypocrisy of a fossil fuel alarmist like Schwarzenegger driving the king of all gas hogs.
Al llegar al fin del 2016 y comienzo del 2017 hay una práctica en Univisión y Telemundo que sigue igual: la habitual descripción deshonesta y descuidada de la política de inmigración del presidente electo Donald Trump - que procura mayor cumplimiento de las leyes inmigratorias del país - con la etiqueta "anti-inmigrante".
As we reach the end of 2016 and the beginning of 2017, one thing remains a constant at Univision and Telemundo: the careless and calumnious characterization of Donald Trump's pro-law enforcement immigration policy as "anti-immigrant." During recent coverage of International Migrants Day marches in New York City and Los Angeles, Telemundo's news anchors essentially adopted the marchers' anti-Trump take as their own.
On December 8, 2016, Fusion, the millennial-targeted television network owned by the nation's largest Spanish-language broadcaster, Univision, posted an online cartoon titled "The best case scenarios under Trump."
In the wake of Donald Trump’s election, another overpaid, self-righteous entertainer lectured us about how we ought to live our lives, asking, “america, what the fuck is wrong with you?” Musician Moby, an ardent Hillary Clinton supporter, shared an open letter to America with Billboard the day after the election. In it, he bemoaned the election of a, you guessed it, “dim-witted, racist, misogynist.” “Hopefully,” Moby also mused, “somehow, america will finally wake up the fact that republicans are simply, terrible.”
