Sean Hannity defends Trump supporters who threatened CNN reporter



Sean Hannity defends Trump supporters who threatened CNN reporter

The theme of the week at The Strident Conservative has been conservatism and how, in the Age of Trump, conservative principles have been traded for power and privilege in Washington and with the so-called conservative media.

I’ve shared with you how this acquiescence to Trumpism has left the remnant of what remains of conservatism with little alternative other than to walk the road of conservative principles alone instead of walking with the crowd of compromising cowards going in the wrong direction.

I’ve written about how so-called conservatives in the House Freedom Caucus not only adopted Trump’s non-conservative policies while defending his indefensible behavior, but how they made loyalty to Trump the barometer of what constitutes a conservative in Washington.

I’ve also documented how so-called conservatives in the media have not only defended Trumps loathsome behavior but have praised him even when he attacks the Constitution. And I provided examples of what this looks like in stories about talk show host Hugh Hewitt and CRTV White House Correspondent John Miller.

Today I bring you another example of how Trumpism has corrupted the so-called conservative media from a well-known source of Trump-love, Sean Hannity from Trump Pravda (FOX News).

At a Florida rally Tuesday night, Trump’s loyal cult showed us where his attacks on what he calls “Fake News” is taking the country when they threatened and intimidated CNN Reporter Jim Acosta.

As we all know, Trump has CNN on his list of “enemies of the American people” and last week we witnessed another episode of his “Fake News” spiel when CNN Reporter Kaitlan Collins was banned from the White House for asking Trump tough questions.

Unlike the Collins incident, however, FOX News employees didn’t defend Jim Acosta. Instead, Hannity blamed him for the violent actions of #Cult45 and told him to get in line by reporting on Trump as he does or face the consequences.

“I’m actually going to give your network some advice, if you have an open mind and an open heart. The people of this country are screaming at you for a reason. They don’t like your unfair, abusively biased treatment of the president of the United States.

“If you want to earn the respect of all Americans, not the coastal elites in California, San Francisco and New York, maybe try reporting the entire story and getting rid of the bias. Maybe examine why people are saying this to us.

“In other words, coverage like (yours) from the White House correspondent at CNN … is why they are doing it.”

Biased treatment of the president? I bet if you look up the word irony in the dictionary, you’d find Hannity’s picture.

Irony aside, however, Hannity is a constant reminder of how so-called conservatives in media have traded principles for a seat on the Trump train. Actually, in Hannity’s case, he never had a seat on the Trump train; he’s been the engineer driving the dang thing ever since it left the station in 2016.

Does the leftist media rely on hateclicks?



Does the leftist media rely on hateclicks

Almost every sector in the economy seems to be doing well, except one: media. Many failed media organizations, slightly outside of the traditional mainstream established corporate media are struggling to pay the bills. Leftist outlets like The Weekly Standard and Think Progress have shut down due to the struggle. Buzzfeed has scaled back operations. Even ESPN has cut fat. Vox Media, a corporate outlet backed by NBC Universal, unsuccessfully went after Steven Crowder because of the success of independent media. The barrier to entries in media are low as technology increasingly reduces the intercessors between information and consumers of information. With an increasing number of intermediaries, people do not need to get their information from CNN or the NY Times.

A second premise I must insert is the prominence of leftist media to publish content that seems intentionally unpopular. There are several examples to pull from. The leftist outlets that trashed Dave Chappelle’s Sticks and Stones were ratioed hard on Twitter. Going after a comedy legend is perhaps one of the most benign examples. Social justice video clickbait farm, Now This, recently published a language policing video on “you guys” being politically incorrect and exclusive. The video was lampooned by the internet, but that video got views. The trash reviews on Sticks and Stones got clicks and were captured aggregated by Rotten Tomatoes. Clicks pay the bills; that’s why it’s called clickbait. But Buzzfeed’s listicles require so little talent anyone could produce them. The clickbait game has evolved, and out of this evolution is Hateclicks, a headline so universally despised outside the left side of the Overton Window that people click, thus providing the ad revenue to maintain these websites. It’s a bold strategy.

But to play devil’s advocate, the leftist media in incredibly lacking in the area of self-awareness. Pink News, a gay outlet, produced a video promoting pederasty, which was later removed. The removal of this video indicates it wasn’t about the hateclicks it undoubtedly received. Instead, this video was a bit of a Freudian slip. This Rainbow Jihad outlet refused to check themselves before they wrecked themselves on social media promoting pederasty. This wasn’t a drunken take, this was a video production. This wasn’t a contrarian opinion, this was groundwork for shaping society. The leftist media has taken an extremely friendly stance towards pedophilia, and after redefining gender to their own preferences, the next frontier seems to be pedophilia.

These opposing views can be married into how we observe the leftist media. For even Bernie Sanders realized his campaign for socialism could only survive by accepting conventional market forces. Such stunning lack of self-awareness, in the media, can be rewarded with revenue. That revenue serves as dopamine as the Leftist media sprints into the abyss of socialism and debauchery. It’s important to note that in their isolated urbanized communities, these elites think Twitter is real life. However, they are unmoved by being ratioed with rare exceptions.

Final Thoughts

Hateclicks are an increasingly vital revenue tactic for the Leftist media and it doesn’t seem to be going obsolete any time soon, as the leftist media is more interested in pushing an agenda rather than being popular to us lesser folks online. The amount of people who want to hear this propaganda is a different question. I do not make any recommendations to resist clicking and giving these companies ad revenue. It’s good to know what their saying when they strawman themselves. Beside, many of these organizations are unionizing which will ultimately hurt them, as the case with Think Progress.

The leftist media is, in many ways, suffocating itself out of existence, and hateclicks are merely unicorn blood delaying their demise.

As NY Times debunks its own Kavanaugh ‘bombshell,’ don’t expect Democrats to apologize



As NY Times debunks its own Kavanaugh bombshell dont expect Democrats to apologize

At least five Democratic candidates for president called for Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s impeachment after the NY Times ran a story about an uncorroborated allegation that “someone” at a party he was allegedly at while attending Yale may have done something to someone. Seriously, that’s the gist of the story. There are confusing details about genitalia being exposed by someone who may or may not have been Kavanaugh, though apparently nobody has any recollection of the incident… including the accuser.

Of course, the NY Times didn’t mention that part in their original story. They issued a correction today, but at this point the damage has been done. The story was so ridiculous that I vowed we wouldn’t cover it. Now that the story is no longer about the weak allegations and is instead about the propagandized actions of the NY Times and the unhinged responses by Democrats, I’ll allow this story to cover just a bit of it. Being editor has its perks.

After a Sunday full of raging emotional responses from the left and calls for impeachment by Democrats, the NY Times finally issued their correction. It’s essentially a complete debunking, but a story with this much political juice would never be retracted by the leftist publication, so this correction is the best we’ll get.

According to Mollie Hemingway at The Federalist:

More importantly than the procedural issue, however, is that several friends of the alleged victim in question say she has zero recollection of such incident.

That salient detail was omitted by the reporters.

A correction was added to the end of the article late Sunday night, after a full day of histrionic media coverage: It reads:

Editors’ Note: Sept. 15, 2019

An earlier version of this article, which was adapted from a forthcoming book, did not include one element of the book’s account regarding an assertion by a Yale classmate that friends of Brett Kavanaugh pushed his penis into the hand of a female student at a drunken dorm party. The book reports that the female student declined to be interviewed and friends say that she does not recall the incident. That information has been added to the article.

This is clever propaganda for the Democrats utilizing a tactic the NY Times has mastered in recent years. They spark a controversy for the sake of controversy and to distract from real issues. The Democrats pounce to score political points. Then, the publication issues a correction that will be seen by 1/100th of the people who read the original article and came to the conclusion that Kavanaugh should be impeached.

By the time news of the correction reaches more people, the Democrats will already have shifted from attacking Kavanaugh as a proxy for President Trump over this issue. At that point, they’ll pretend is was all about the old evidence proving he should never have been nominated or confirmed in the first place. Bravo, NY Times.

Presidential candidates Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris, Julián Castro, Cory Booker and Pete Buttigieg demonstrated stupidity by falling for the latest false accusation against Brett Kavanaugh. Now that it’s debunked, they should apologize. They won’t.

We will not be covering the latest Brett Kavanaugh accusations



We will not be covering the latest Brett Kavanaugh accusations

Update: Now that the story has been debunked, we’re running one more story on the issue.

Original Story:

Brett Kavanaugh is in the news again as mainstream media tries to draw our attention away from real stories so we’re focused on old accusations made last year about events that supposedly took place three decades ago. We’re not taking the bait. Neither should you.

The border crisis is helping criminals enter (or reenter) the country while causing a tremendous economic strain on taxpayers.

Iran is trying to tank the world economy in desperate moves to force their oil onto the market.

Democratic candidates are pushing for gun confiscations while saying they don’t want gun confiscations.

The investigation of the investigators who forced the Russia hoax onto all of us for two years is coming to a conclusion. Finally.

Violence is rampant on the streets across America, especially in cities where Democrats are in charge.

Big tech is doing everything within its tremendous power to sway the 2020 election to favor Democrats while suppressing conservative ideas.

Climate change alarmists are scaring the people into thinking we’re all going to die if we don’t give all of the money and power to bureaucrats.

Despite all of these pressing issues that actually affect Americans, the media wants our attention pointed towards a Supreme Court Justice who has already been forced to defend himself time and time again against ancient allegations. No. This isn’t journalism. This isn’t what Americans need to be talking about. There are real problems and possibly even real solutions to those problems if we’re willing to stop the smearing by the media and focus on actual issues.

As a crowdfunded news outlet, our responsibility is to the people and the truth, not whatever distraction corporate media outlets cook up to keep people looking in the wrong direction.

The Democrats’ puppets in mainstream media are trying to be puppetmasters over the people. Silly controversies stirred up are merely distractions from the disastrous policy proposals Democrats are pitching. We won’t participate.
