The liberal media hate machine was running at full steam on Sunday in the wake of two mass shootings the left wanted to blame President Trump for. According to frequent NBC and MSNBC guest, radical Princeton professor Eddie Glaude, not only should we condemn the President but we also needed to condemn anyone who used the term “illegal immigrant”.
Former President George H.W. Bush was elected into office on his famous promise of “read my lips: no new taxes”. It was a promise he would come to break and many attribute to why he became a one-term president. As Sunday’s Meet the Press was nearing the end of its hour, NBC chief foreign affairs correspondent Andrea Mitchell praised the former President for breaking his promise to the public and raising taxes.
On VH1’s Daytime Divas, the first transgender host of the fictional daytime talk show “The Lunch Hour” was introduced, played by real life transgender actress and activist Janet Mock. Her appearance was used as an opportunity for the Christian host, Heather (Fiona Gubelmann), to confess that her child is transgender.
New York Times columnists and editors hmay condemn Republicans for limiting what their Democratic successors can do – as what’s happening after a tough loss by the sitting Republican governor of North Carolina Pat McCrory to Democrat Jim Cooper -- but the Times celebrates it when President Obama does it, or is being encouraged by left-wing groups to do so.
Another version of the liberal media’s self-serving falsehood that Democrats just play too nicely to win the Washington game appeared in Tuesday’s New York Times: David Leonhardt, former Washington bureau chief for the paper, subbed for David Brooks on Tuesday’s opinion page to whine that in the 2016 election cycle, “Democrats Had a Knife, G.O.P. a Gun."Leonhardt apparently forgot the threats send to electors pledged to Donald Trump, or the massive effort (egged on by the Times and other media outlets) to overturn the election results via sabotaging the Electoral College?
Are U.S. elections reliable? Should the results be universally respected and accepted? Can one challenge the results without being smeared as a threat to society or at least a poor loser? The New York Times can’t make its mind up. After Donald Trump refused to say he would accept the election results two weeks before the election (when the media was already crowning Hillary the winner), the Times was crammed with stories about the dictatorial dangers of refusing to accept election results. But when liberal anti-Trump protesters engaged in violent protest in the wake of Trump’s surprise victory, there was no problem. Similarly, the NYT seems fine with Green Party candidate Jill Stein’s expensive recount. No wailing about how the $7 million Stein has raised to fund the recount could have fed a hungry child or helped save the planet, just mildly encouraging reports with no hint of impropriety or threat, in the face of Stein hinting at vote fraud and refusing to accept the results of a free and fair election.
Our friend Brent Scher at the Washington Free Beacon noted that the New York Times editorial board has a funny double standard on recounts: North Carolina’s Republican governor Pat McCrory is a pathetic whiner to contest the results, but recounts for Hillary don’t require comment...except for a Monday grumblefest titled “Donald Trump’s Lies About the Popular Vote.”
Green Party presidential nominee Jill Stein’s demand for presidential recounts in three states will cost millions of dollars for no effect, but the Times is more upset about the man they call “North Carolina’s Sore Loser."
The North Carolina media have been predictably out of control since the state passed and signed the transgender bathroom law, but their behavior sunk even further following the Orlando terror attack when WRAL chief political correspondent Laura Leslie suggested backers of the law were to blame for the shooting because of their “rhetoric” “in the wake of this horrific anti-gay crime.”
Like a tried and true liberal lapdog, the North Carolina media have applied a full-court press (pun intended) to attack Republican Governor Pat McCrory over the transgender bathroom law to the point that the leftist site Politifact hounded McCrory over a general statement that the pro-gay Human Rights Campaign (HRC) is both powerful and full of secret donors.
In a column that showcases the leftist belief that the ends justify the means, the Charlotte Observer and its parent company McClatchy have expressed nothing short of support for the economic boycotts of North Carolina in light of Republicans remaining defiant after Governor Pat McCrory signed a bathroom bill to ensure that people use the bathroom according to the gender they were born with.
The latest salvos in the struggle over whether a law passed during March in North Carolina forces transgender people to use public restrooms that don't correspond with their “gender identity” came on Monday, when Dan Savage tweeted that those who disagree with House Bill 2 should leave jars filled with their urine at Republican Governor Pat McCrory's office.
The strategy promoted by the gay activist and columnist drew the immediate attention of Noah Michelson, an editorial director on the liberal Huffington Post website, who called Savage's idea a “brilliantly gross” method of protesting the state's “Anti-LGBT Law.”
Again showing that he’s incapable of being simply humorous without going on liberal rants, NBC’s Late Night host Seth Meyers lashed out overnight Thursday into Friday by touting Ted Cruz as a “lizard dresse[d] up in a suit” and North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory as “fear mongering” for signing into law “hateful and discriminatory” transgender bathroom bills.
