The corporate-controlled press is desperate to keep the Capitol Hill riot front and center.
It’s being used as a pretext for all of the Left’s bad ideas.
But liberal journalists were mocked endlessly for the ridiculous thing they said about January 6.
“Woke” millennial journalists are still traumatized by the Capitol Hill riot, and they want everyone to know about it.
Vice News ran a story titled, “‘So, So Angry’: Reporters Who Survived the Capitol Riot Are Still Struggling.”
The tweet for the article was mercilessly ratioed (more comments than retweets and likes combined), and reporters from both the Left and the Right mocked the piece.
Aaron Maté, a progressive journalist for The Nation who immediately called out Russiagate as nonsense, tweeted:
Confronting trauma is one of the most valuable human endeavors. Reducing it to a solipsistic exercise for self-important Beltway media personalties is a perversion of that experience. The real Capitol trauma is that which its occupants inflict on their own country and the world. https://t.co/WnjHnSrv8S

Richie McGinniss of The Daily Caller had an even more savage takedown of the privileged journalists whinging about January 6:
Oh wait, there were no all-important legacy reporters there, NYT reporter went home because she was scared

Throughout 2020, the corporate-controlled press played down the violent riots as “mostly peaceful” despite the widespread vandalism, looting, and even murder.
The narcissism of these millennial journalists is likely the downstream effects of what authors Jonathan Haidt and Greg Lukianoff discussed in The Coddling of the American Mind.
These journalists were raised on safetyism and protection from any and all negative emotions, and many of them lack resilience.
They’ve also been conditioned to believe that victimhood is a badge of honor.
It’s self-serving nonsense, and it’s amazing to see the Left and Right come together in order to rebuke them.
Bill Maher surprisingly defended Ron DeSantis against one insane media attack
The Democrats and their media comrades are gunning for Ron DeSantis.
They try to turn every move he makes into a scandal.
But Bill Maher surprisingly defended Ron DeSantis against one insane media attack.
Comedian Bill Maher is close to being expelled from the Church of the Left.
The lifelong liberal host of Real Time with Bill Maher on HBO has ruffled feathers among leftists for his refusal to go along with every single bit of leftist dogma.
Maher recently pushed back against Democrats’ demonization of Florida’s Parental Rights in Education bill that Governor Ron DeSantis intends to sign into law.
The bill precludes public schools from participating in classroom discussions on sexual orientation and gender identity in grades K-3, and requires schools to notify parents if their kids are assuming a different gender identity at school.
The Left predictably screeched and called it the “Don’t Say Gay” bill, even though the word “gay” does not appear anywhere in the bill and does not preclude teachers from having individual discussions with children.
During a recent episode of his show, Maher challenged leftist New York Times columnist Frank Bruni regarding the bill.
Maher said, “So we’re talking about very young kids who, you know, as always with this stuff, you know this. It’s not like there’s no kernel of truth in that maybe kids that young shouldn’t be thinking about sex at all . . . I don’t think it’s specific. It’s not like you’re not allowed to literally not say ‘gay.’ They just don’t want teachers talking about it; they think it’s the province of parents.”
That is a completely reasonable take, but leftists have turned the bill into some insane attack on gay and transgender children.
Leftists in entertainment joined together and put pressure on Disney to take action against DeSantis.
California Governor Gavin Newsom even tried to lure Disney jobs back into his state.
Disney, the door is open to bring those jobs back to California – the state that actually represents the values of your workers. https://t.co/kbCi7Zgs90

Newsom is kidding himself if any companies are itching to pay more in taxes, especially when the far-left Democratic supermajority considers doubling state taxes.
But DeSantis has stood tall against the leftist attacks.
DeSantis said in a recent appearance, “[T]he chance that I am going to back down from my commitment to students and back down from my commitment to parents’ rights simply because of fraudulent media narratives or pressure from woke corporations, the chances of that are zero.”
Maher also recently questioned the talking point that Vladimir Putin didn’t invade during Donald Trump’s Presidency because he was doing Putin’s bidding and there was no need.
Maher is capturing the sentiment of a lot of liberals who are looking around and finding too much insanity on the Left.
The liberal comic has mentioned several times that he has not changed – the Left has changed.
That’s precisely correct.
Liberal positions from 20 years ago have now become “right-wing.”
One terrifying media prediction about Justin Trudeau just came true
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau clearly hates freedom.
That’s why he’s cracked down so hard on the trucker convoy.
And one terrifying media prediction about Trudeau just came true.
Former conservative Arianna Huffington took a hard-left turn and created the Huffington Post.
HuffPo almost exclusively spits out left-wing nonsense, but occasionally some common sense will seep through.
Such was the case when HuffPo published an op-ed from a conservative writer in 2014 that predicted Justin Trudeau would become a fascist ruler.
In the piece titled, “Why Canada Will Become a Dictatorship Under Trudeau,” self-described conservative writer Daniel Dickin foresaw the future eight years ago.
Dickin wrote that the “leader of [the Liberal] party does what he wants, when he wants, and no one dares question him. Would a Prime Minister Trudeau arbitrarily whip the vote and outlaw certain moral questions? Could Prime Minister Trudeau be trusted to make decisions for the good of the country, not just for his personal self-worth? Would Trudeau call in the police to enforce his vision? Let’s hope we never have the opportunity to ask those questions.”
Unfortunately, the world is getting to see what Prime Minister Trudeau is unleashing on the Canadian people.
Trudeau mandated COVID vaccines, and enacted emergency powers to enforce them on truckers.
Then his government froze the bank accounts of people who contributed to the freedom convoy.
Trudeau is the epitome of a fascist globalist elite who thinks he knows what’s best for all of his subjects.
Dickin laid out his case by explaining that Trudeau “is the man who admitted he ‘admires China’s basic dictatorship.’ It wasn’t just a sarcastic comment – he seriously said that he admires the dictatorship because they can get things done quickly. And it’s becoming clearer that Trudeau not only admires the dictatorship – he runs the Liberal Party like one too.”
Trudeau and other left-wing elites have long marveled at the “efficiency” of the Chinese Communist Party.
Barack Obama himself lamented the fact he couldn’t just snap his fingers and bulldoze people’s rights the way that the CCP can.
Trudeau is cut from the same cloth.
In fact, Trudeau was part of the Young Global Leader program administered by the globalist billionaires’ club the World Economic Forum.
Dickin also explained that “[t]he Liberal caucus randomly learned one morning early last year that their leader had come up with a new diktat: that all Liberals would be expected, no, required, to vote pro-choice.”
The fascist warning signs were there for Trudeau eight years ago.
Unfortunately, not enough people were paying attention.
Now he has established a foundation for Democrats in the United States to emulate.
NBC’s Chuck Todd will have you seeing red with this January 6 meltdown
The corporate-controlled media celebrated January 6 like the Super Bowl.
Members of the press hyped up the day in hopes of helping Joe Biden restart his Presidency.
And NBC’s Chuck Todd will have you seeing red with this January 6 meltdown.
Joe Biden delivered one of the ugliest and most divisive speeches in American history on the one-year anniversary of the riot at the Capitol.
Biden singled out Donald Trump and his 74,000,000 voters as threats to democracy, claimed the January melee was worse than the Civil War and called for passing legislation to rig elections so Democrats never lose power.
NBC’s Chuck Todd led the corporate-controlled media parade in gaslighting the American people into thinking that Biden’s dangerous declaration of war on Trump and his supporters amounted to the greatest defense of American democracy since Abraham Lincoln.
Todd declared it was a moral imperative for Biden to launch a deranged rhetorical assault on Trump and his voters.
“I think it was something that he had been avoiding. Look, what was remarkable to me about it is we went a year without him responding to this. He wanted to stay above this. And a lot of people thought this, that if you ignore some of the craziest rantings of the former president, maybe he’ll fade away. Maybe this will wear itself out. One year later, that’s not the case. That’s why this president of the United States, Joe Biden, had to do what he did. He had to do it for history’s sake,” Todd stated.
Todd then outrageously claimed a politician giving a speech where said politician attacked his political opponents and their political agenda was not political.
“I think this was probably easily the most important speech he’s given as president, and I think it’s his best. I’ll tell you this. You think that speech was partisan. Then you believe the former president’s lies. It’s only a partisan speech if you think there’s somehow a truthful dispute here. If you’re pro-democracy and pro-America, it is hard to look at that speech and say, ‘Oh, it’s politically skewed,” Todd added.
Todd’s comments were instructive.
Democrats want to appropriate the word “democracy” to be a catch all for their socialist legislative agenda.
Joe Biden pressures Democrats to blow up the legislative filibuster so Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer can ram a bill into law that destroys any protections against fraud in American elections.
But once Democrats “carve out” an exception for so-called “pro-democracy” legislation, they can nuke the filibuster permanently to pass mass amnesty for illegal aliens, gun bans and confiscation, packing the Supreme Court, and adding new states with permanent Democrat Senate seats.
Todd knows this.
And he supports every bit of it.
That is why Todd went to such lengths to lie to viewers about Biden’s speech not being political.
