The on air shooter was racially motivated. Hmmm… How are the narrative enforcers gonna handle this?
I have come up with a useful new metric. It is a measure of how much time Republicans and ostensible conservatives spend criticizing and feigning outrage about Trump vs. criticizing Democrats and Establishment Republicans. It is expressed as a ratio. For example 2:1. I call it the stooge quotient. Expressed in a sentence: “Man, did you see S.E. Cupp on CNN today? Her stooge quotient was off the charts.”
Hmmm… So I guess this pledging fidelity to the party thing only works one way. When did Beck become such an Establishment stooge? I thought he was run off from Fox because he was too much of a free agent and didn’t hew close enough to the party line. Now he’s running interference for the ruling class. Someone must have something on him.
Trump made a negative comment about Megyn Kelly last night as she returned to her show on Fox News, Ailes wants an apology. Not gonna happen.
I totally disagree with the FOX statement,” Trump responded. “I do not think Megyn Kelly is a quality journalist. I think her questioning of me, despite all of the polls saying I won the debate, was very unfair. Hopefully in the future I will be proven wrong and she will be able to elevate her standards to a level of professionalism that a network such as FOX deserves.
Jack Hunter and the rest of the staff at Rare have descended into parody. Rare, as I understand it, was supposed to be a conservative site that leaned libertarian and hoped to attract a younger crowd, but Trump has made them come unhinged. Today they posted a story attempting to PC smear Trump because David Duke is glad he is speaking up about immigration. So what? It’s about time someone spoke up on immigration, and if it happens to be someone Hunter and the Rare boys believe is a less than perfect vehicle like Trump, then the blame falls on potentially better vehicles who have sat back and hemmed and hawed on immigration because they are beholden to the fat cat cheap labor lobby and/or they fear being accused of wrongthink by PC enforcers at sites like Rare. “Sites like Rare.” Do you realize how pathetic it is to have to say that? Rare is now in the PC enforcement business with the likes of Slate and Salon. It’s just pitiful.
I’ve been surprised at how baffled the pundit class has been by Trump and his success. I’m not surprised that they don’t like it, but people who get paid to think about politics shouldn’t be so stumped by him. But Pat Buchanan gets him, of course. Read this.
Enter the Donald. If there is a single theme behind his message, it would seem to be a call for a New Nationalism or New Patriotism.
He is going to “make America great again.”
