Star Trek has always been a little political, but lately the long-running science-fiction franchise has suffered from social justice wokeness and Trump derangement syndrome. Unfortunately, it seems like the latest series Star Trek: Picard will take the same route as it questions the “moral authority” of once iconic institutions. Not even Patrick Stewart’s return as Picard can save the political spiral.



Amanda Marcotte is back with another searing indictment of President Trump, and by searing we mean she’s focused on bashing “white conservative” America and their self-manufactured, Fox News-curated victim status again.

 


Amanda Marcotte in Friday's Salon compared the Republican senators at the impeachment trial of being a throwback to the Jim Crow era due to jury nullification. Her latest wacky shtick is that those Republicans will probably act as a throwback to Jim Crow due to jury nullification.



Paul Rosenberg devoted 3,000 words in the left-wing Salon to refuting the indisputable liberal bias of the press: “Not fake news: Major study finds no 'liberal bias' in media -- but there are other problems -- Yes, the media is liberal -- but there's no 'gatekeeping bias.' If anything, journalists have become too cautious.” That "Not fake news..." bit in the headline is ironic, given that the counter-example Rosenberg highlights is actual “fake news,” not content analysis, as my colleague Tim Graham pointed out. Still Rosenberg was obliged to make some concessions to the conservative case.



Salon’s politics writer Amanda Marcotte has been putting 110% into being the Grinch this Christmas. On Christmas day, she followed up her attack on Christians who wish each other "Merry Christmas," by directly comparing Hallmark Channel Christmas specials to Nazi propaganda.



Most conservatives and liberals enjoy Christmas enough to just have a good time, though every once in awhile you get a Scrooge who refuses to fathom the reason of the season and badmouths the holiday and those who celebrate it. Salon’s politics writer Amanda Marcotte doubled down on her hatred for Christmas by calling those who celebrate it hypocrites who mean “fuck you” when they say “Merry Christmas.”

 


How bitter are anti-Tump leftists? Feminist Scrooge Amanda Marcotte is saying “Bah Humbug!” to the Christmas season this year, all because Donald J. Trump is the president.

 


Even those who work at Google have noticed the search engine’s unfair tilt towards liberal news outlets. Google engineer Greg Coppola, who was suspended by his company for speaking to Project Veritas, published a July 25 post on Medium analyzing Google News. Coppola re-enacted a project done by PJ Media’s Paula Boylard in order to demonstrate Google’s liberal manipulation of its algorithms



Unlike many of her fellow leftists, such as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez who despite the visual evidence absurdly claimed that the July 4 speech by President Donald Trump was "poorly attended," Salon politics writer Amanda Marcotte admitted the truth about the size of the large crowd. However, while conceding the evidence was true, Marcotte rationalized it by claiming the big turnout was due to..... racism. 



Yesterday, the medical journal Annals of Internal Medicine released a study on the physical health effects of abortion and the left-wing media jumped on it. While most media outlets simply reported what the publication stated, Salon decided to take the extra step of inserting their own lefty conclusions.



Americans don’t learn much about the American founding in school anymore, so other institutions have stepped into the gap, including progressive Broadway. So we get rapping Hamilton, and now a play whose point is to convince us that the Constitution is a largely obsolete document in our brave new world, leading to societal problems, particularly in putting “women’s bodies on the line.



Hollywood may be one big sexually perverse cesspool, but for it’s languid denizens, it’s still not weird enough. Bisexual actress Kristen Stewart had a lot to say about LGBTQ representation in Hollywood this past week, demanding that the tired old straight people angle needs to go in favor of a whole new set of gay fictional material.
