Andrew Klavan as regards the comments from Jim Acosta:

But, like virtually everything Acosta reports, this is just a reflection of his small-minded biases. The fact is, having a group of people scream at you and denigrate you is exactly what it feels like to be in America — if you don’t happen to be a coastal elite. It has felt this way for the last twenty years at least. Every television show you watch, every movie, every woman’s magazine, every comedian, and, yes, every news program tells you you suck. Your country sucks. Your culture sucks. Your religion and your morals suck. And you personally are one of those dumb-ass racists who clings to his Bible and talks funny.

If you believe your country should vet its immigrants, you’re racist. If you voted for Donald Trump, you’re racist. If you make a joke about Barack Obama on Facebook, you’re racist twice. If you think motherhood is a woman’s highest calling, you’re sexist. If you take it ill when Islamists blow you up in the name of their nasty little god, you’re Islamophobic. If you know that a man is a man even if he says he’s a woman, you’re transphobic. If you think it’s fair to debate whether homosexual actions are moral or not, you’re homophobic.

Every day. From every outlet. All the time. And now people are kangry. Wonder why.

The situation Klavan describes has been going on for many years now and frankly if there’s anything that surprises me about all of this is that it took this long for the press to be called to account for it.

I will include this as well, because it’s too important to point to ignore:

New York Times publisher A.G. Sulzberger says he told Trump his anti-press rhetoric could lead to violence. But the media’s anti-Trump rhetoric already has led to violence: public officials rat-packed and bullied, Trump supporters harassed, White House spokes-lady Sarah Sanders having to live under guard. And yet when Sanders pointed this out to Look-At-Me-I’m-Jim Acosta, Acosta stormed out of the room. Hell, if he doesn’t want to hear the truth, he could just stay home and watch CNN.

Clearly the signal being sent here is that Jim Acosta doesn’t mind violence, and anger, doesn’t mind hatred, so long as it isn’t directed against leftists.

And I’ve already addressed Pinch Sulzburger in these spaces, just yesterday…. But if you’d like a more recent example of the New York Times and its actions against the American people, here you go.

And look, ask yourself what the purpose of a free press is. The founders thought that a free press was supposed to be reinforcing the culture and thereby the Republic.

Jim Acosta, on the other hand, along with all too many of our Fifth Estate seems to feel that it is specifically designed so as to produce progressivism. Statism.

I’ll tell you something else. Acosta is being less than honest about his objection to Donald Trump per se.

Look I have made no bones about the fact that I have certain problems with Donald Trump. But, let’s be clear, here… this is not about Donald Trump and never has been. I’ve been saying all along that the fanaticism we see coming from the left these days has been there a long time before Donald Trump even thought about running for president…. And that anybody from the left that was not Hillary Clinton, would be receiving the same treatment as Donald Trump and his supporters are now. The fact is, this is not about Donald Trump, this is about the American people and their rejection of progressive statism.

Acosta, far from defending the freedom of the press as he claims, is in reality defending himself and his organization which has done nothing but promote progressive statism and deride the people that they claim to be “serving”.

And maybe, just maybe he and the rest of the Liberals occupying our press these days should think seriously that his being attacked at the Trump rally the other night was a reaction to his attacks and those of his buddies, over a period of decades. The low ratings that CNN has been getting these last several years, should have been his first clue… He and his are the cause of what he caught a taste of the other night.

I suggest ti you that the left and the Press have been playing the part of the bully against the American people for long enough now that they shouldn’t be surprised when the bully, in other words themselves, gets their comeuppance.

  1. YOU just don’t understand.

    He went to J School cause he was too stupid to get into Teacher college.
    He has a Degree, swiped it off the protractor all by himself.

    You could have been him, but lets be honest, you have a perfect face for radio.
