Morning Greatness: Media Intoxicated With Proud Boys Obsession

Good Thursday morning.

Here is what’s on the president’s agenda today:

  • The president  participates in a roundtable with supporters in Bedminster, New Jersey
  • President Trump delivers remarks at a fundraising committee reception Bedminster, New Jersey

Two minutes of hate:

The media is still squawking about Tuesday’s presidential debate. Yesterday I wrote about how the gossip girls in the prestige media were ruminating about Biden refusing to debate again because the ORANGE MAN BAD was a barbaric oaf, throwing food and feces all over the venerated debate ritual. Well, as is tradition with the Democrats, when things don’t go their way they change the rules. Now the Presidential Debate Commission has announced it will make changes to “ensure a more orderly discussion.”  We can add this to the list of all the other rules the Democrats have changed because the filthy casuals did not behave in their own interest: trying get rid of the electoral college because the dummies in Arkansas don’t want to be governed by the coastal mandarins; or packing the SCOTUS because the court is full of stupid conservatives; or getting rid of voter ID requirements because citizens are not capable of voting in their own self-interest.

Let’s talk about the Proud Boys. I don’t know much about the group but I do know a few very important things: they aren’t burning down the cities, they aren’t beating people up, they aren’t attacking law enforcement with explosives, they aren’t accosting peaceful folks eating their meals outside, they aren’t singling people out based on their race for harassment, they aren’t looting local businesses and they aren’t vandalizing public property. So what’s the problem ? The media is OBSESSED with them. Have they instigated violence? I don’t think so. Can the media name one act of unprovoked aggression on the part of the Proud Boys? They never do in their televised coffee klatches and journalism slam books. The media and the Democrats have singled them out because they have rejected the sacred mythology of progressive race and social doctrine. We’ve seen the same thing for QAnon. The pages of the New Yorker, Vice, The Atlantic, the New York Times are bewitched and infatuated with QAnon, their tabloids are filled with warnings and scare pieces about QAnon. But why? They aren’t hurting people, they aren’t committing crimes. Alas, they are committing thoughtcrimes just like the Proud Boys are. We live in the age of the citizen prosecutor lead by the priestly class of self-anointed elitists. Deviate from the holy scriptures of leftism at your own risk, the specter of ritual defamation is always hovering. Here’s a video of some Proud Boys. They seem HORRIFIC.


Finally, I want to share some thoughts about Holy Jame Comey’s testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee. On Wednesday, his Holiness appeared for some questioning. That useless slag Lindsey Graham avoided holding a hearing with these derp state conspirators until no one was paying attention or people were so beaten down by the scope of the unchecked depravity they just gave up hope of any degree of justice.  The purpose of Wednesday’s spectacle on was to allow Comey to burp up some sound bites for the cable scandal sheets where he says he thinks the RUSSIANS have something on Trump even though we spent tens of millions of dollars for rabid Trump haters to forensically deconstruct Trump’s life and the life of anyone in Trump’s orbit. Comey was sworn in and simply claimed he didn’t remember anything or didn’t know about anything irregular going on at the FBI. Sure, it’s entirely plausible that the director of the FBI would not know the details of an extremely sensitive and serious investigation such as surveilling a presidential campaign. And of course, Comey testified he is proud of the FBI’s effort. I guess we could say he’s a proud boy.
