David French Gets Paid to Hate You

Posted on | May 8, 2021 | Comments Off on David French Gets Paid to Hate You

Ace of Spades points out that The Dispatch, “[f]ounded by conservative thought leaders Steve Hayes, Jonah Goldberg, and David French,” has been avidly defending Facebook’s ban of President Trump, without disclosing that The Dispatch “has a financial relationship” with Facebook.

In case you’ve forgotten, The Dispatch was launched in late 2019 and, by early 2020, had acquired something north of $6 million in investment capital from . . . Well, who, exactly? Good luck on finding news reports with that information, but suffice it to say that it came from rich people who hate Trump voters, and according to Ace, this includes Facebook.

What this means is that Facebook and other rich liberals are paying David French to smear you (and the other 70+ million Americans who voted for Donald Trump) as an extremely dangerous “white supremacist” who should be prohibited from using the Internet at all.

These “conservative thought leaders” — the ones who believe that every decent person with “principles” will always vote for Democrats — have not abandoned their lucrative grift now that its original purpose (i.e., electing Joe Biden and a Democratic congressional majority) has been accomplished. Instead, David French and his friends are engaged in a scorched-earth vengeance campaign to destroy the lives of everyone who voted for Trump, because that’s what they’re getting paid to do.

Let us stipulate, arguendo, that David French may be acting in good conscience. That is to say, perhaps French — who is, after all, an alumnus of Harvard Law School — actually does believe you are a dangerously ignorant, hate-filled crypto-Nazi who deserves to be arrested by federal authorities and locked up in Leavenworth. This is what every Harvard alumnus thinks, that the 70+ million Americans who voted for Trump are an existential threat more dangerous than al-Qaeda or ISIS.

The point, however, is that the people who run Facebook think you’re dangerous, and they’re paying David French‘s bills, so when he goes on CNN to join Brian Stelter in warning the CNN audience about how dangerous Trump voters are, it’s because that’s how French earns his pay.
