ITEM BY ROLLING STONE EDITOR MATT TAIBBI EXAMINES WAYS THAT DEMOCRATS ARE NOW AN INTOLERANT FASCIST MOB

Matt TaibbiWE NEED THIRD PARTIES! DEMOCRATS WANT A ONE-PARTY NATION! The Democrats and their media outlets have become an intolerant fascist mob whose war on the rest of us continues unabated. Rolling Stone editor Matt Taibbi is well-known for his hatred of de facto Third Party President Donald Trump but he also speaks out about the intolerance and fascist behavior that have driven so many former Democrats like me to #WALKAWAY from that crazed, frothing at the mouth political party.

In a recent piece Taibbi pointed out how the Democrats have become dangerously irrational, from their Trump “Russian collusion” delusions up through their insane attempt to destroy anyone who expresses anything less than admiration for the destructive riots that Democrats have unleashed by hiding behind George Floyd’s death.

AAAAAAAAAWOMAN WITH SIGN

NO DEMOCRAT WOULD ALLOW THIS SIGN IN A CLASSROOM OR OFFICE

Often grouping them together as “the left,” Matt runs down a list of ways that the Democrats, their media outlets, their social media corporations and the “educational institutions” (LMAO) that they have a virtual monopolistic hold over are acting outside of the ballot box – indeed, outside of the entire political system – to force what amounts to one-party rule on the rest of us. Links are below but first some excerpts:

“It feels liberating to say after years of tiptoeing around the fact, but the American left has lost its mind. It’s become a cowardly mob of upper-class social media addicts, Twitter Robespierres who move from discipline to discipline torching reputations and jobs with breathtaking casualness.”

“The leaders of this new movement are replacing traditional liberal beliefs about tolerance, free inquiry, and even racial harmony with ideas so toxic and unattractive that they eschew debate, moving straight to shaming, threats, and intimidation. They are counting on the guilt-ridden, self-flagellating nature of traditional American progressives, who will not stand up for themselves, and will walk to the Razor voluntarily.”

“They’ve conned organization after organization into empowering panels to search out thoughtcrime, and it’s established now that anything can be an offense, from a UCLA professor placed under investigation for reading Martin Luther King’s “Letter from a Birmingham Jail” out loud to a data scientist fired* from a research firm for — get this — retweeting an academic study suggesting nonviolent protests may be more politically effective than violent ones!”

” … The New York Times, the InterceptVox, the Philadelphia Inquirier, Variety, and others saw challenges to management.”

” … Probably the most disturbing story involved Intercept writer Lee Fang, one of a fast-shrinking number of young reporters actually skilled in investigative journalism. Fang’s work in the area of campaign finance especially has led to concrete impact, including a record fine to a conservative Super PAC: few young reporters have done more to combat corruption.”

“…Yet Fang found himself denounced online as a racist, then hauled before H.R. His crime? During protests, he tweeted this interview with an African-American man named Maximum Fr, who described having two cousins murdered in the East Oakland neighborhood where he grew up.”

“Saying his aunt is still not over those killings, Max asked: I always question, why does a Black life matter only when a white man takes it?… Like, if a white man takes my life tonight, it’s going to be national news, but if a Black man takes my life, it might not even be spoken of… It’s stuff just like that that I just want in the mix.”

“… A significant number of Fang’s co-workers, nearly all white, as well as reporters from other major news organizations like the New York Times and MSNBC and political activists (one former Elizabeth Warren staffer tweeted, “Get him!”), issued likes and messages of support for the notion that Fang was a racist. Though he had support within the organization, no one among his co-workers was willing to say anything in his defense publicly.”

” … To save his career, Fang had to craft a public apology for “insensitivity to the lived experience of others.” According to one friend of his, it’s been communicated to Fang that his continued employment at The Intercept is contingent upon avoiding comments that may upset colleagues.”

” … After the 2016 election, we began to see staff uprisings. In one case, publishers at the Nation faced a revolt – from the Editor-in-Chief on down – after an article by Aaron Mate and Patrick Lawrence questioning the evidentiary basis for Russiagate claims was run. Subsequent events, including the recent declassification of congressional testimony, revealed that Mate especially was right to point out that officials had no evidence for a Trump-Russia collusion case. It’s precisely because such unpopular views often turn out to be valid that we stress publishing and debating them in the press.”

Looters different from protestors” … Kathleen Kingsbury [The NYT’s newest opinion page editor], issued a staff directive essentially telling employees they now had a veto over anything that made them uncomfortable: “Anyone who sees any piece of Opinion journalism, headlines, social posts, photos—you name it—that gives you the slightest pause, please call or text me immediately.”

“… All these episodes sent a signal to everyone in a business already shedding jobs at an extraordinary rate that failure to toe certain editorial lines can and will result in the loss of your job. Perhaps additionally, you could face a public shaming campaign in which you will be denounced as a racist and rendered unemployable.”

“… Looting in some communities has been so bad that people have been left without banks to cash checks, or pharmacies to fill prescriptions; business owners have been wiped out (“My life is gone,” commented one Philly store owner); a car dealership in San Leandro, California saw 74 cars stolen in a single night. It isn’t the whole story, but it’s demonstrably true that violence, arson, and rioting are occurring.”

“However, because it is politically untenable to discuss this in ways that do not suggest support, reporters have been twisting themselves into knots. We are seeing headlines previously imaginable only in The Onion, e.g., “27 police officers injured during largely peaceful anti-racism protests in London.”

 — Matt Vespa, writing about Taibbi’s piece, observed:

” … the inability of the media to counter it due to the lefty mob is probably why issues like “Defund the Police” seem like it’s a popular position. It’s not. Taibbi noted polls “show 65% of Americans oppose [defunding the police], including 62% of Democrats, with just 15% of all people, and only 33% of African-Americans, in support.”

“But if you shame, de-platform, and purge those liberals who haven’t gone totally insane from your ranks, I could see how abolishing the police could seem like a possibility if you’re a lefty loon.”

“The media appears to be a place where there can be no debate, where its writers work in fear, and the political correctness enforcers acting like ISIS’ religious police watch their every move.”

*** Wow. Good for Matt Taibbi for his piece. If only America had something like, oh, say, an OPPOSITION PARTY whose career politicians would speak out like this about what the Democrats are doing. The Republican Party has long been a joke and continues to prove how utterly useless it is when a Rolling Stone editor shows more courage and insight than it collectively does.

By the way, the only thing Taibbi left out is the way that the left’s “educational institutions” (LMAO) behave the same way as their media outlets do and were doing so long ago.

  1. Des

    I followed your link and read the Rolling Stone article just to see it for myself. How uplifting to find a little dose of reality in such an unsuspecting place! Great point of yours that Matt Taibbi shows a lot more courage than most Republican politicians. My day will go a little better now. Thanks!

  2. Here in Spain we are done with our socialist-communist party ruling us.
    But I do have hope that in the U.S, people will not fall to the socialist-communist propaganda. I believe you guys are just mentally weird differently, most of you I do believe want to get back to work, no hand downs from the government, just work your ass off. It is hard to wake up at 5 a.m and go to work, but I did find it at the end of the day refreshing, I felt I accomplished something. Hard and pissed off overall, but I did accomplish something. I do believe that is the mentality of quite a lot of Americans, and that mentality will help to not let the so called leaders of the left to turn that country to a Venezuela type of dictatorship. Which is what the left in the U.S wants, that way they are permanently in power while the rest of the population is looking around where the freaking toilet paper is, still amazes me here in Spain why people are so focused on having the toilet paper, food? Na, we need toilet paper. Like in Venezuela, actually there they don´t even have neither toilet paper nor food, and Spain is going that route, we are pretty much done with this government we have, but I do believe that the U.S will come on top after whenever this pandemic ends, that nobody know when, but just most of the people in the U.S will make it happen. I hope.

    • I certainly hope you are right. I have a bad feeling that this November there will be more riots if the left doesn’t get the results they want. Or they will drag things out by pretending there was voter suppression and that they do not have to accept the results.

  8. Gregory

    You and Taibbi are both absolutely right about how far gone the Democrats are now.

    I love watching others join us former democrats in being disgusted with what the democrats have become.
