The City Pages – the Twin Cities’ media’s aggressively dumb and mindlessly aggressive little brother – engages in “Trump-shaming”, in an article that asks the question that’s on every Minnesotan’s “mind”:
Who among us would give to Donald Trump? These people, that’s who.
The article then publishes the names of everyone (they could find) who’s donated to Trump, from the $1,000 donations down to $19.
Now, let nobody be under the delusion that the City Pages is anything but the low end of the DFL’s PR chain, covering the “dumb, entitled, self-impressed would-be hipster” market segment.
But this is part of a larger Democrat strategy – and it’s nothing new. Back in 2010, the DFL used the media to help “shame” Tom Emmer’s corporate donors into acquiescence. Newspapers around the country have been trying to “gun-shame” carry permit holders (in states that have less-effective protections for permittees than Minnesota law does, thankfully) ever since they could. Even Minneapolis city councilwoman, Generalissima and Councilwoman for Life Alondra Cano, used/abused her position with the city to try to “shame” her critics by publicizing their personal contact information.
This is your Twin Cities media, doing its job.
No, I mean its real job.
