This has not been a very good week for the so-called Free Press. Between their slobbering defense of the indefensible Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and their running interference for that stupid slob Jerry Nadler, these purveyors of “facts first,” have traded in their journalism creds to play Human Shields.
And before you scroll down to the comments to say, “Well, duh, Dianny. We all knew that!” (come on, you know you were planning on doing that), the purpose of this post isn’t to break the news to you that the so-called “news” media have become Human Shields.
We know they are.
And that’s the point.
What strikes me about the latest examples of this transformation from “brave firefighter journalists” to human shields is how utterly oblivious these guys are that we know they’re doing it.
It’s like the Emperor’s New Clothes. They continue to parade around as if they’re brave defenders of the Free Press and unbiased, neutral purveyors of Truth – completely unaware that we can see for ourselves that they’ve chosen the form of Human Shields.
And they’re making utter morons of themselves.
Look at how far out on a limb these guys were willing to go to explain, justify and defend Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s hideous concentration camp gaffe.
When Liz Cheney made the perfectly valid point that comparing the detention centers on our southern border to places where Jews were exterminated by the millions, the always stupid Chris Cuomo actually thought this response was somehow helpful in shielding little AOC.
Exterminated? We use that for pests not people. https://t.co/pvJrUu4QmG— Christopher C. Cuomo (@ChrisCuomo) June 19, 2019
Really, Chris, you idiotic buffoon? Good grief, if you think that tweet somehow put Liz Cheney in her place while protecting AOC, you guys not only suck at journalism, you suck at being Human Shields.
Hey dumbass, the Nazis treated the Jews like pests. They sought the total annihilation of the Jewish people and they did so by dehumanizing us. https://t.co/DolmiWSIeD— Elliott Hamilton (@ElliottRHams) June 19, 2019
The fact that idiots like Chris Cuomo would torch whatever tiny shred of credibility they might have left in order to rush to the defense of a clown like AOC is bad enough.
But the fact that they are completely unaware that we can see exactly what they’re doing is what’s absolutely stunning to me.
I mean if you guys are going to be out of the closet human shields, could you at least acknowledge to yourselves that we can see you and hear you?
You’re not fooling anyone – except maybe yourselves.
Okay, and maybe Alyssa Milano. But I doubt it’s hard to fool her.
As much as MSNBC bubble-head Katy Tur wants to believe “journalists” are like firefighters, nobody here on Planet Earth believes that for a second.
Unless of course they’re the kind of firefighters who enter a burning building, completely ignore the people trapped inside while they rush to rescue the arsonist who started the blaze.
Last night they began rushing into the smoldering wreckage of Jerry Nadler’s sexist treatment of Hope Hicks. And once again, they did so to shield Nadler.
Do you have evidence — either from sources or his prior behavior — that would suggest he did that intentionally? https://t.co/G7eSE2AADw— Glenn Thrush (@GlennThrush) June 20, 2019
He’s had recent health issues, to be blunt, and if you see him walking around the Capitol you can see him physically manifesting the strain and exhaustion. That’s not to say you are wrong, but there might be another explanation… That’s all I’m driving at… https://t.co/IWaxnnLSq1— Glenn Thrush (@GlennThrush) June 20, 2019
Ah, the lengths they will go to play the role of Human Shields for their Democrat Party masters. It really is shameful.
Eventually these “firefighters” are going to have to put out the blazing inferno that was once their reputations.
pretty sure Nadler didn’t call her “Ms. Lewandowski” on purpose— John Harwood (@JohnJHarwood) June 21, 2019
Yes. It is an easy mistake to make. I mean who doesn’t accidentally say “Lewandowski” when they meant to say “Hicks?” And not just once, but three times. Sure, I can see that.
It’s exactly like getting Dan and Don mixed up. Or Kirsten and Kristen. I mean Lewandowski and Hicks are just so damn similar! Who wouldn’t make that mistake?!
Ask yourself this question. Would these Human Shields give Donald J. Trump the benefit of the doubt if he called someone by the wrong name not once but three times?
Would they bend over backwards to excuse a gaffe nowhere near as awful as AOC’s concentration camp drivel if it was said by Congressman Dan Crenshaw?
Of course not.
They serve as the Democrat Party’s Human Shields.
Yet, and again here’s the part that really gets to me, they continue to pretend we can’t see what they’re doing.
Just the other week, Don Lemon actually scoffed at the idea that his show – and CNN in general — was liberal.
Are they delusional?
Or do they think we’re completely stupid?
Speaking of Don Lemon, the insufferable diarist Jim Acosta appeared on his show last week and actually asserted, “We are defenders of the people, and we want to defend the people because we are devoted to the people.”
Yeah. The only people these Human Shields “defend” are Democrat politicians.
The only people they are devoted to are elected officials with a D after their name.
And the fact that these Human Shields continue to believe that we see them as courageous defenders of Truth, Justice and a Free Press really has me questioning their sanity.
But don’t worry. It’s totally okay for me to question their sanity. After all, these brave, unbiased firefighters have been spending the last two and a half years questioning the sanity of President Trump.
