Is Your Far-Right Anger Stoked Yet?

Posted on | April 22, 2019 | 2 Comments


According to the Washington Post, you are a far-right extremist if you think blowing up a church on Easter Sunday is . . . I don’t know, wrong or something. So apparently, it’s now OK to blow up churches, because only extremists would object. The headline here could have been:

“Dead Christians? Totally Awesome and Progressive!”



Professor Glenn Reynolds:

They don’t want you to be angry, even though they know you have things to be angry about. They want you to be ashamed, all the time, for disagreeing with them about, well, anything. Meanwhile they want to keep their own base angry and inflamed 24/7. News spin revolves around this to a huge degree.

Ace of Spades:

The Washington Post is playing the typical media game: downplay the Islamist violence directed at Christians and Westerners while remaining singularly concerned about possible future “backlash” against Muslims . . .
The pace of this game has accelerated. It used to be that the media would spend a day or two at least noticing that Islamists had murdered a bunch of people again before claiming The Real Crime is any possible hypothetical speculative future side-eye a woman in a hijab might get at Wal-Mart.
Now, they start claiming that Muslims Are the Real Victims here while they’re still gathering up the limbs sheered off of the victims.

What the liberal media have done with Islam, really, is an updated version of what they did with Communism during the Cold War. According to liberals, the greatest danger facing America circa 1950 was not Stalin or Mao; no, the real danger was “McCarthyism.” Don’t worry about those totalitarians with nuclear weapons pointed at us, said the liberals, what should seriously concern Americans is that a high-school teacher in Brooklyn or a screenwriter in Hollywood might lose his job for joining the Communist Party: “What about their civil rights?” And after it was pointed out that there were no civil rights under Communism — no free speech, no free press, etc. — the liberals next switched to the game of shouting “Fascist!” at anyone who made such a point. Anyone who seriously opposed Communism was always compared to Hitler by liberal smear merchants, who accused every prominent anti-Communist — from Richard Nixon to William F. Buckley Jr. to Barry Goldwater to Ronald Reagan — of being “paranoid” or having an “authoritarian personality.”

Fast-forward to the Trump era, and you’re a white supremacist if you’re OK with Kate Smith singing “God Bless America” at a hockey game.

The Left never learns any new tricks, they just go back to the same predictable playbook — character assassination, guilt by association, moral relativism, etc. — and expect to get away with it, as if no one could ever be clever enough to reverse-engineer their racket.
