I know mocking the left and the media isn't the solution, but I do enjoy it. I don't feel bad or cheap about it either, because I know they earned it. It's fun, it's gratifying, and I'm not interested in sparing them any embarrassment. Those personal preferences and pleasantries aside, there’s also a more serious matter.
I understand that some people thought they could join hands with the media and the left and they'd take you in. I'm sorry they continue to reject you. It must be hard, trying to please them. You can keep feeding them all the anti-conservative propaganda you want, it won't help. Even with conservatives taking stands against Trump throughout the election and today, they still tie us to it. Sure, they pretended to extend the olive branch during the election, but that was when they wanted everyone to bend the knee. Now they're just raging that their trick backfired, and they're blaming you. I guess I could move past all that and be the bigger person, but I won't. I won't cut them any slack or extend them any grace.
If we are afraid that pointing out the bias of the media and the hypocrisy of the left is helping Trump, then we should just confess our irrelevance in the political arena. If we've given up on defending ourselves because we are afraid it might help the big-government nutjob governing in our name, then maybe it's time to hang it all up. Stop wasting time calling out bullshit and join the left in slamming conservatives. Time to make a confession in the public square that conservatives are all trash and make a formal pledge to the agenda. Maybe we can beg for forgiveness for existing. After we admit it was totally our fault the left pushed Trump and gave him free media in an attempt to rig the election for their candidate. That's pretty much what they ask for.
But what about Trump? Well to hell with Trump, too. He's right there with them. There isn't any justification to be found for Trump's actions in pointing out the hypocrisy of the left, nor in declaring the bias and inaccuracies of the media. Trump can be wrong, the media can be biased, and left can be hypocritical at the same time.
Choosing to ignore it is harmful. Remaining silent in the face of distortion is a surrender of the demand for truth, and you cannot be diligent against corruption or scandal while surrendering the demand for truth. The past eight years should've taught us that.
I'm not required to rebuild journalistic integrity. They'll have to do that on their own. Stop being a cheap date and buying and selling into inaccurate or distorted narratives about conservatives. Demand truth. There is no interest in defending, enabling, or aiding the kind of liberalism that seeks the destruction of conservatives. It's ideological suicide.
Just a gaggle of people from all over who have similar interests and loud opinions mixed with a dose of humor. We met on Twitter.
