Yesterday President Trump referred to this sham “impeachment inquiry” as a lynching.
And suddenly all the people who used the word lynching in the past declared that using the word lynching means you’re a White Supremacist.
“Why, nobody would EVER be so careless and stupid to use a word like ‘lynching’ to describe a House inquiry! It’s beyond the pale!!! Only a racist White Supremacist would DARE use that word!”
Except, of course when Democrats and the media did it before the Age of Trump.
Then it was tickety-boo!
The funniest response was Joe Biden.
And how did then Senator Joe Biden refer to the impeachment of Bill Clinton?
You guessed it!
Well, as you can imagine, when Joe Biden caught wind of Joe Biden’s abhorrent and despicable use of the word lynching, Joe Biden quickly pivoted and tried to Biden-splain.
See, apparently when he used it, it was just a careless slip-up. But when Trump used it he did it deliberately.
Yeah. I’m not so sure the “I’m just stupid, but Trump’s racist!!” response makes Joe Biden look any better.
But Joe isn’t the only one who has, in the past, used the word lynching in such a way.
Now, the defense being offered for this is laughable.
“But that was over twenty years ago!!! Things have changed since then!! Nobody would use the word lynching in today’s climate unless of course he is a White Supremacist and a racist!!!”
But just four years ago, when Hillary Clinton was called before the Select Committee investigating the Benghazi attack, CNN published this editorial:
Let’s be honest. Lynching, lynch mob – these words have been used to describe this kind of political crap for years without so much as a whoopsie-daisy from Democrats or the media.
It isn’t that the times have changed.
The only thing that’s changed is President Trump is the one who used it.
The same media that is setting its hair on fire over Trump using the word lynching bent over backwards to defend Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez calling migrant detention centers “concentration camps.”
Speaking of which. Alexandria “the US is running concentration camps on the border” Ocasio-Cortez actually had the gall to pitch a fit over the President using the word lynching.
Last night on his show, Mark Levin described LynchingGate as yet another media “pseudo-event.”
And that’s precisely what it is.
It goes back to what Daniel Greenfield described as the “Abnormalization of Trump.”
Even if something has been said or done countless times before, once Trump says or does it, the media and the Democrats treat it as completely against the norm.
As Greenfield put it:
Nothing existed before Trump. Nothing will exist after him. The left is caught in an endless moment of perpetual struggle, stretched out by the nanosecond pace of Twitter and amplified by endless media discourses, of how extraordinarily bad this moment is. In that moment, the left never grows or learns, it writhes in the hellish agonies of its own hatred at Trump’s continuing unnatural existence.
Imagine 1984’s Two Minutes Hate stretched out over years. That’s the #resistance.
The phony outrage over Trump calling this sham impeachment inquiry a lynching fits this description to a T. They will ignore or dismiss other instances when lynching or lynch mob was used in the exact same manner because all that matters is abnormalizing Trump.
As Greenfield put it, “The media and the mindless lefties consuming it have built a senseless culture of outrage that is hostile to history and uninterested in the truth.”
It’s best to simply step away from the news and from social media until the phony outrage machine winds down. Take a walk in the fresh air, do some chores around the house, read a book, spend time with family, and leave these idiots to quiver and howl into the void.
Eventually, they’ll tire themselves out and find some new shiny Outrage Object to work themselves into a lather about.
It’s all fake.
The outrage is manufactured.
The “scandals” nonsensical.
But in the Age of the ResistanceLOL, manufactured outrage is all these idiots have left.
