The always hyperbolic presidential historian Jon Meacham made an appearance on MSNBC’s Hardball Tuesday, where he weighed in on President Trump’s description of his treatment throughout the impeachment inquiry as a “lynching.” After trashing President Trump as a racist, Meacham proceeded to trash the entire country as racist dating all the way back to its founding. In addition, Meacham compared the testimony of diplomat William Taylor that took place earlier in the day to the testimony of Richard Nixon’s White House Counsel John Dean during the Watergate hearings.
All three network morning shows Wednesday spent reports blasting President Trump for comparing the Democrats’ impeachment inquiry to a “lynching.” ABC, NBC and CBS seized on the racially-charged language, characterizing it as yet another example of Trump’s racial insensitivity. However, Joe Biden’s own history using the word to describe the Clinton impeachment, was given a pass by the networks, who couldn’t find the same outrage for the Democrat candidate.
Far-left filmmaker Michael Moore joined MSNBC’s Hardball and host Chris Matthews on Tuesday to not only trumpet his endorsement of Bernie Sanders (despite previous skepticism about the 2020 field) but offer the hideous claim that white Trump voters of all economic stripes are racist on the level of pro-apartheid South Africans. This ugly comparison came about part way through the block thanks to Matthews pondering “why” working class white voters “stick with” President Trump through all the controversies and now impeachment.
This week, ABC's How to Get Away With Murder continued its long streak of writing left-wing talking points as pretend drama. The show seems to have been created for the sole purpose of promoting both gay sex and left-wing propaganda. Past seasons have claimed that we are a country of racists, sexists and homophobes and shown gay threesomes. This season, the show's final, has already compared ICE agents to criminal gangs and fueled an anti-cop narrative.
Style mag GQ is trying to usher in the next wave of gender queer apparel and cosmetic choices, giving readers a full spread about how masculinity isn’t that important and the concept of a man is pretty much just a fugazi anyway. It’s just that … you’re a men’s magazine, guys.
There's no need for African American NBA players to stand with Hong Kong, not when America has far greater flaws, wrote The Shadow League blogger Carron J. Phillips. It's not their responsibility to save the world, especially a problem created by a white man, he argued. Instead, they should focus on overcoming white privilege and police brutality in America.
If you need an accurate update on some of the madness at the nation's institutions of higher learning, check out Minding the Campus, a nonprofit independent organization. John Leo, its editor in chief, says that the organization's prime mission is dedicated to the revival of intellectual pluralism and the best traditions of liberal education at America's colleges and universities. Leo's most recent compilation of campus madness leaves one nearly breathless.
In what many have seen as one of his more provocative moves to date, the larger-than-life rapper, producer, and clothing designer Kanye West has decided to take his new Christian-themed concerts to historically black Howard University, prompting more of the “Kanye, what are you doing?” responses from his former lefty colleagues who can’t stand that he’s an owner of a “Make America Great Again” hat.
Despite the fact that the Jeffrey Zucker-led CNN has created a cottage industry out of town halls involving presidential candidates and/or their liberal causes, CNN showed very little interest in recapping their four-and-a-half-hour, horrendously-rated Thursday night LGBTQ town hall with nine 2020 Democratic presidential candidates. Between midnight and 7:30 p.m. Eastern Friday (so 21 and a half hours total), CNN shows spent just under 25 minutes (24 minutes and 47 seconds) on a town hall that featured a slew of alienating takes.
On Thursday morning, as CNN geared up for its evening town hall special on gay rights with the Democratic presidential candidates, the network's New Day show ran a couple of segments on the issue of LGBT rights. One segment highlighted a reported increase in hate crimes against transgenders in which the story managed to invoke the unrelated upcoming Supreme Court case on LGBT discrimination by employers. And, speaking with the new president of the pro-gay Human Rights Campaign, co-host John Berman cued up his guest to complain that President Donald Trump has not been far enough to the left on gay rights.
Last week, Shonda Rhimes’ How to Get Away With Murder compared ICE agents to criminal gangs. This week’s episode, “Do You Think I’m a Bad Man?,” on October 10, turned law enforcement into the villains again with a story of a police officer killing an unarmed black man.
The record-breaking primetime series Law & Order: Special Victims Unit prides itself on its “ripped from the headlines” stories. Lately, however, it’s been more known for its heavily biased stories that take only one political side of the story. The same is true in the NBC show’s take on one of the most infamous recent fake hate crimes: the Jussie Smollett case.
