There has been no shortage of liberal folks in the media making absolute shameful fools of themselves this week. Whether it’s so-called “comedians” wishing that they could punch the MAGA-hat wearing teen in Washington or liberal pundits on the news lying to the American people about the circumstances of the incident, a whole lot of people showed their true colors. Less than a year after Parkland, when all of these same people were telling us it was the height of our disgusting alt-right world for conservatives to attack David Hogg and his cohorts, the left showed us this week that they are hardly above launching a movement to destroy a teenage boy.
But radio superstar Rush Limbaugh was more disturbed by the many conservatives in the media who decided to hop on the teen-shaming bandwagon. Most of them NeverTrumpers by trade, these conservatives didn’t wait a second before buying the mainstream media narrative hook, line, and sinker. And while most of them have since apologized profusely for jumping the gun, Limbaugh said it was in all of our best interests to remember these individuals and adjust our judgements of them accordingly.
“The red flags should have gone up immediately, and everybody on our side should have called ’em out for what this was! But instead, we had people on the right condemning the kids,” he lamented. “And why? Why does this happen? They will tell you, ‘Because we must be honest and we must be filled with integrity.’ BS! These people are scared to death of the media and the first and only thing they care about is media approval.”
Limbaugh turned his condemnation on National Review, whose authors wrote several early stories bashing the MAGA teen and his friends before all the facts were in. He condemned Meghan McCain of “The View,” who couldn’t wait to tell the world how disgusting she found the Covington Catholic School kids and their horrible actions (which included chanting school songs and…you know…smiling.)
“None of this would have gotten anywhere near as far along as it has if we had any winners on our side rather than graceful losers,” Limbaugh said. “We were willing to gracefully lose the election. These people, some on our side, have admitted they voted for Hillary Clinton rather than Trump.
“We will gladly be graceful losers so as to maintain the respect of the Washington establishment led by the Drive-By Media,” he continued. “We will throw kids, future Republicans, people that we ought to be encouraging — we’ll throw ’em overboard in a matter of seconds — on the strength of one still shot photo on CNN!”
By the way, you can expand Limbaugh’s comments in many directions, including the conservative media credulity on the BuzzFeed story about Michael Cohen last weekend and the condemnation over Rep. Steve King’s supposedly “racist” remarks to the New York Times. One of these days, conservatives are going to wake up to the fact that we are in a cold WAR against the left in this country. Maybe then they’ll stop falling for these obvious decoys.
