Stop The Instinctive Naivete

Joan Rivers used to say, “can we talk?” America, can we talk? I have about had it with our conservative or Republican brethren, while meaning well, putting on pretenses about what the left says. It really is sickening and naïve.

This is an instinctive reaction for some people. Just stop it! That is ignorant.

One of Hannity’s favorite talking points about the 2016 election is how media fell for the Russia hoax story. Can we dispense with that bullshit now? Mark Levin called Hannity on that one night. He told Sean no, MSM were in on it all along and were part of it. But they never just “fell for it.”

After his 2020 campaign kickoff, Trump did an interview with Hannity. Sure enough, Hannity reflexively used his talking point that media “fell for” that charade all the way. But immediately Trump disagreed and corrected him. He said MSM knew and were in on it, but they didn’t “fall for” anything. Why does our side do this so often?

AOC just made statements that, in fact, we have concentration camps on our border. A particularly nasty comment. So Fox talks about it and Laura says she is dumb or those comments aren’t right. She is shocked at how media are defending it. But the MSM and Democrats feel compelled. Let them defend it, or try.

Let’s get this straight, she said exactly what she meant to say. Don’t attribute it to some misstatement. And don’t expect her to apologize. It was entirely intentional. The reaction was predictable because she intended it. The comment was inflammatory by design. Being provocative is in their DNA as radicals. It is what they do. Who can attribute it to error? They get the desired benefits. Again, it is their M/O; it’s what they do.

That would be giving the media or AOC way too much benefit of the doubt. They are part of the radical strategy. Language is nasty because they mean it to be nasty. It is a form of sandbagging to misattribute their vile intent. It makes their sandbagging more effective.
