Just So We’re Clear…

I tend to cut people a lot of slack on things that some see as outrages, cover-ups and howlers.

For example, when Joe Rogan couldn’t get Sanjay Gupta to condemn CNN for calling Rogan’s Ivermectin treatment “horse medicine”, some screamed foul. And it was a terrible look – but what, yo8u want a guy to shade his employer on the biggest podcast in the world? Be reailstic.

And a few weeks back, when the pit reporters translated “F**k Joe Biden” into “Let’s Go Brandon”, some howled the network was covering up for Biden’s growing unpopularity. No – in that case, she was doing what everyone working live in the world of broadcast (as opposed to cable or webcasting) is trained to do from the first time they take a microphone in front of a crowd; take any FCC violations that slip through and try to neutralize them, to prevent as many FCC complaints against their hundreds of affiliates broadcast licenses as possible. Because someone will complain.

(And honestly, that particular meme may be the closest thing to “fun” we’ll have this political cycle).

And so my inner solomonic pollyanna is fighting with my pouncing Republican and education-reform zealot on this bit here:

A badly chosen example in the heat of what sounds like a pretty annoying moment? Perhaps.

Evidence that Ms. Peddy reallly thinks there’s a legitimate opposing view on the Holocaust? I doubt it.

But the idea that teachers are baffled about providing multiple points of view on things that are controversial – Columbus, the 1619 Project, the founding of the country, the roots of the Second Amendment, the causes and motivations of the Civil War, how different the USSR and Nazis weren’t, and on and on?

I can’t really pollyanna my way around that.

  1. There were some very fine people on both sides of the Holocaust!?

    Just an embarrassment to our nation and an insult to the memory of all those who lost their lives in the Holocaust and those that fought and died to end that evil during WWII.

  2. Dear god, debunked lie drools out of the trolls mouth. Wish I could bet you a grand in person that that is false, would love embarrassing you AND taking you money.



    Two links bozo. Come up with proof or get the hell out of here forever, I am sick and tired of your long disproven lies.

    Mitch, pleas stop letting this bi**h buttf**k this site and its honest commenters (and you). He cannot provide contrary proof, it is a hoax, and he knows it. Its time Mitch, grow a pair and ban him already.

    Or risk losing your regs.

  3. Jeezus effing christ on a pony. You went to NBC as a resource for this “event”? You don’t see any connection whatsoever that NBC is not reporting on the Loudon rapes and hammering on this?

    For months now, NBC News has been assailing the concerned parents of Southlake, Texas because they’ve been standing up to the tide of critical race theory being crammed down the throats of their children. And on Thursday, despite new details in the already outrageous Loudoun County high school rapes story, NBC Nightly News continued their assault on the community that has had enough of liberal propaganda. They even deceptively edited audio to make it seem as though the parents were support of the Holocaust.

    And then, of course, the little weasel (el comadrejita) sees your attempt to be fair as his opening to piss all over the place.

    And then you have the nerve to take a chin-stroking, kinda skeptical position on this? They’re effing playing you, man. Don’t you ever get tired of this?

  4. jdm, I gotta wonder myself why Mitch enjoys this kind of abuse. Little puta sh*ts all over him and his place. I’m about outta here myself.

  5. Who pays for the schools?
    Local taxpayers.
    Who should determine what is taught at the school?
    Local taxpayers.
    It is difficult to imagine that a person other than the local taxpayers has the same investment in the future of the children attending the local schools.
    When you have an education industry with a different agenda than the people whose children are being educated, you will have problems, and those problems will never cease.

  6. jdm, and as far as sources go, I went to google (yeah, I know) to find a link to one of the many thousands of debunking’s of the fine people hoax, and google put on the first page only lamestream mediots repeating the hoax. Yup, layers and layers of fact checkers.

  7. MP, the last few years have really pulled the curtain back on how evil the left is, whether it’s hispanics in Texas or parents of schoolchildren anywhere, people are beginning to understand how much worse dhimmicraps make their lives.

  8. MP, I remember an exchange from years back (can’t recall the participants or specific quotes, only the upshot).

    An education expert was asserting s/he knew as much about children as parents did, and therefore was qualified to make decisions about the children.

    The parent’s reponse: “Really? What are their names?”

  9. There were some very fine people on both sides of the Holocaust!?

    Emery tells us in as few words as possible that his listening and reading comprehension skills will likely never improve.

    The “very fine people” canard is no different than other lies like “I can see Russia from my house” or “Jimmy Carter wasn’t a bad president.”

  10. kinlaw, everything you say is true, but I’ve learned a lot here. There are a number of perceptive writers here. And occasionally, beating up on a troll is good practice.

  11. Mitch, how many times must the adults point out that the fine people hoax is just that, a hoax, and why do we have to put up with it here?

    Different opinion; fine.

    Endlessly repeating lies, it’s time for it to go.

  12. My “in moderation” comment had 2 links to articles debunking the fine people hoax, but if Mitch is good with a pos pi**ing on him and his site whatever.

  13. The Daily Wire claims a scalp:
    The Daily Wire has recently hired a full-time investigative reporter. Because the MSM is captive to the left.
    I’d much rather give my political money to non-politicians that are religiously motivated than to politicians, so the money I used to give to the GOP now goes to the Wire. People who are sincerely religious are harder to corrupt than businessmen.
    I do what I can.

  15. Good news for the educrats is that if they want an “opposing view” on the Holocaust to present, there are a number of constituent groups on the far left who will be willing to present it. I can think of an economics major from Brown who could even give a seminar on the subject with three of her friends from Congress. Heck, for that matter, I can think of a community organizer from Chicago who did his part to help it be repeated by providing tens of billions of dollars to the Iranians.

    Just sayin’.

  16. Media critic Freddie de Boer (definitely worth reading in full for the info on the economic collapse of the writing for publication profession):
    In the span of a decade or so, essentially all professional media not explicitly branded as conservative has been taken over by a school of politics that emerged from humanities departments at elite universities and began colonizing the college educated through social media. Those politics are obscure, they are confusing, they are socially and culturally extreme, they are expressed in a bizarre vocabulary, they are deeply alienating to many, and they are very unpopular by any definition. The vast majority of the country is not woke, including the vast majority of women and people of color. How could it possibly be healthy for the entire media industry to be captured by any single niche political movement, let alone one that nobody likes? Why does no one in media seem willing to have an honest, uncomfortable conversation about the near-total takeover of their industry by a fringe ideology?

    Now consider that 80% of democrats trust the media to tell them the truth. You can’t keep up the lie forever, and when the crash comes it is going to be ugly.

  17. Law prof Tom Smith on the metastasizing woke child rape scandal in the Loudon, VA school district:
    “This is a situation that is just so awful that it’s difficult to believe it’s really happening and it almost defies words.” It is pretty awful, isn’t it? But this is what you get when you have school boards that believe their job is not just to educate children, as their parents would, but to remake society. Nobody evil starts out thinking — I’m going to be evil. Well, perhaps a few do. Most just think they know what’s good, more than almost everybody else. They’re experts after all. It proceeds, step by small step. And the next thing you know, you have a boy in a dress in the girls’ restroom, sodomizing a crying girl. You say to yourself, ok, it might have happened, but there’s a bigger picture here, a more important end. And the girl’s parents’ child has to be made to seem a liar. And pretty soon, you’re the baddie. That’s how I imagine it, anyway. That’s giving them the benefit of the doubt. But we mustn’t forget, this story is really happening and it’s too horrible for words.

    This is what happens when you ignore the evidence of your senses and allow your ideology to define reality. Our elites and intellectual class are full of this woke nonsense.

  18. “This is what happens when you ignore the evidence of your senses and allow your ideology to define reality.”

    As Emery likes to put on display every time he huffs some Donald Trump brand spray paint and tells us all about “fine people” or “horse dewormer” or whatever thoroughly debunked lie he’s hanging on to (for whatever reason) so tightly.
