Your Thanksgiving Day Open Thread

Your Beloved Blog Editrix Wishes Everyone a Happy Thanksgiving, and turns things over to you the readers. Post your links. Say your piece.

In the spirit of Thanksgiving, I wanted to take a moment and thank you all for the many comments over the past year. Whether it was about politics, ideology, activism, or something else, I’ve thoroughly appreciated hearing your insights. You inspire me with your infectious passion. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for filling me with optimism. Happy Thanksgiving - Jan


 

So, Turns out There's Actually Scientific Data Liberals Are More Likely To Have Mental Problems

The results of a study, which was conducted off a self-reported poll by Pew Research in March on this year, indicated that across all races and age groups, those who identified as conservative were far less likely to have been diagnosed with a mental illness by a doctor.  Ph.D. student Zach Goldberg took the overall data and created a chart to show how likely a person is to develop mental illness based on race and political affiliation. Not surprising if you have been paying attention, Whites who identified as "very liberal" - AKA the majority of our nation's socialistic woketard leftists – were far more prone to emotional and mental problems.
 

When filtered by race, the problem becomes even more defined. Whites who identified as "very liberal" – you know, the young soft skulls of Antifa and BLM, and those espousing Critical Race Theory and professing their white guilt – are twice as likely as their non-white counterparts to suffer from mental illness.


Among white liberals, the most affected group were far-left women. 56.3% of white leftist females admitted stress and mental health issues. But then we already knew about them ........

The Line Will Be Forming on the Right


Once upon a time, archaeologists dug up a Babylonian clay tablet describing a ceremony where the Chief Priest of Marduk slapped the King, as hard as he could. If the king cried it was a blessing on the nation. Now I'm not saying I want to try out a god-king theocracy or anything like that you see, but this 'to restore cosmological order, slap the king around a bit' concept intrigues me.  Let's explore, shall we!
When he [the king] arrives before Bel [also known as Marduk], the high Priest leaves, taking the mace, the loop and the scepter. He [also] takes the crown of his kingship. He then brings them before Bel and places them on a pedestal before Bel. He leaves and strikes the king's cheek.  If, as he strikes his cheek, tears flow, Bel is friendly. If tears do not flow, Bel is angry. The enemy will arise and bring about his downfall.  He places [the king] behind him and brings him before Bel. He drags him in by his ears. He forces him to kneel down on the ground. The king says the following only once.
"I have not sinned, Lord of all Lands. I have not neglected your divinity. … I have not struck the cheek of those under my protection, I have not belittled them."
After [The High Priest] has spoken, the king retains his dignity as usual. [The High Priest] retrieves the mace, loop, scepter, and crown and hands them back over to the king. [1]
The ceremony has a heavy focus on warding off abuses of power. Along with things you'd expect from an old-timey oath of office like military defense and religious duties, it covers not being an asshole to the powerless.

In any case, the symbolic message is clear. Even kings are helpless, naked mortals before the gods.  The political message is also clear. If this looks like priests making the head of state their lil bitch, well … yeah.

Why is this ceremony relevant today you ask your Editrix?  First, it's a lovely reminder that people have always been kinky.  But second, an most importantly, in modern terms our educated Founding Fathers made "We The People" the Priest,  and the "King" the nation's elected leader.  And just like the Babylonian's priest, the founders insisted America's leaders "not be agents of chaos who interferes in the daily lives of ordinary people."

Correct power imbalances are so traditional, the old gods made kings kneel for it.  So be careful, "Mr. President-Elect". Watch who you let influence you or else the line to slap you around could soon be forming.

The Party of Science. Democrats??

CNN Resident Soft Skull, Don Lemon

Is there anything more hilarious than the idea of someone at CNN, the most vicious divider of the american public, suggesting it might be time now to come together as Americans??  On Friday’s CNN Tonight, Don Lemon and his buddy Fareed Zakaria teamed up for a mutual masterbation session and orgy of bashing Republicans for daring to disagree with CNN. Among other things, Lemon attacked Trump voters as “people who don’t believe in science,” “facts,” and “reality”.

Lots of people (most of them Democrats) think of the Democrat Party as the party of science, in asserting themselves as people of rationality and objective facts (as opposed to people of “blind” faith), and their ideological opponents.

I wonder, was Lemon speaking of disagreeing with his 'Party of Science' that believes a heart beat is not life? That it's vessel is just insignificant tissue and an unwanted intrusion if one chooses it to be so. Science?  Insignificant tissue is the wart on the back of you hand, or a benign tumor. Neither of which could grow to stand on the surface of the Moon, or create Great Art or Music.

Or was he speaking of the 'Party of Science' that believes a man can be a women just because they want to be, that if a person’s gender identity does not match his or her sex, then that person’s sex is determined by his or her gender identity. To assert that a person changes his or her sex whenever his or her “internal sense of being male or female” changes means somebody flunked Biology 101.

Or maybe he speaks of the Party of Science on climate change, of the consensus that the planet has been warming due to human carbon emissions. The climate trend over the last several hundred years is not one anybody credible disputes, because the climate has been Changing For The Last 4 Billion Years!! We are still retreating from the last Ice Age!

I could go on, but you get the idea. Media today like CNN is pure propaganda, with their prominent sidebar of covid death tolls and positive test numbers, but no sign of asymptomatic cases, recovery stats or false positives. Just fear mongering. 

And Science is not always settled. Just as history has to be revisited as facts are discovered, science cannot see absolute truths in some areas. Only what can be ascertained by the facts that are known. But activist and the media, emotions and propaganda, do not hold the keys to the truth. And Don Lemon is a real Dickhead. Don't be like Don Lemon.

or Tater Stelter.......

Noted German Doctor of Alternative Medicine and Lockdown Critic Arrested By Merkel's Gestapo Live on YouTube Stream

While Frau Merkel sips champagne at the G20 summit, her state police are raiding the homes and arresting German Covid lockdown critics. With shades of the WW2 Gestapo raid on a Dutch attic we are all familiar with, this arrest was captured live and is causing a stir everywhere but in the American media.

The renowned German Chemist and Alternative Medicine Doctor, Andreas Noack, was arrested while engaged in a live stream internet (Webinar) conference. The Doctor has criticized the lockdown measures and the new law the german government just passed called the 'Infection Protection Law.' They didn’t just send normal police, they’ve sent in the USK (Unterstützungskommando) which usually raids hideouts of terrorists and known armed and dangerous criminals.

The video shows the doctor’s door getting kicked in, and police treating him like a violent insurgent for his expression of ideas. Policemen can be heard banging furiously on the door of the place, where Dr. Noack was broadcasting. “It’s the police,” a man can be heard saying off-camera in panic. The video then shows police barging into the building forcing Dr. Andreas Noack to the ground. The police then proceed to terminate his live stream. 

With the way NYC's oppressive treatment of some religious minorities have been lately, let's hope Mayor Wilhelm De Blasio doesn't get any ideas....

Now Boys & Girls, Let's Pay a Visit to Mr. Keith's Padded Room

Who Knows What the Truth is Anymore.....


After four long years of sustained, berserk attacks on the fabric of reality by the democrat Party, and "We have Them now, They're all going to jail, Just wait" BS coming from the right, the media they both support has become a parasitic organism that has latched onto the throat of the nation and will not let go. There is no way to repair or rehabilitate a media who's mindset is too hardwired into their business model, the careers (and book deals) of too many influential voices in the press are built on it, and too many young minds are irreparably warped too early on and too deeply as they are coming up and osmosing the norms of their profession.

Every time I hear or see or read the same, lavishly remunerated sock puppets jackhammering home the same, patently false narratives for the umpteen millionth time from impregnable media fortress that reach several million more people a week than I ever have or ever will, this is what it sounds like to me:
"Alpha children wear grey.  They work much harder than we do, because they're so frightfully clever.  I'm really awfully glad I'm a Beta, because I don't work so hard. And then we are much better than the Gammas and Deltas. Gammas are stupid. They all wear green, and Delta children wear khaki. Oh no, I don't want to play with Delta children......" - Aldous Huxley, BNW
As corrupt and crippled as our politics has become, our system still demands that, every few years, the people who make our laws undergo a certain amount of scrutiny and an up-or-down hiring decision by the people they propose to represent. But as you may have noticed, that scrutiny is now routinely bent out of shape, so wildly distorted that on any given day all we seem to have is a choice of poisons; a fire-hose of relentless lies, irrelevant trivia, breathless horse-race gibberish, poll number recitations and 30 second ads.

And that is because the deciders who dictate the parameters of that political discussion, the Villagers who conspire to whisper "I'm really awfully glad I'm a Beta, because I don't work so hard. And then we are much better than the Gammas and Deltas. Gammas are stupid. They all wear green, and Delta children wear khaki." into our nation's ears a hundred times a day from a dozen angles, are themselves almost never scrutinized and held to account at all.

Congratulation to Squinty & Meat Puppet. All it took was a Hemlock Martini


We've spent most of the last four or five years making fun of, excessively degrading, and pointing out the rank hypocrisy of Joe & Mika and the soft skulls at MSNBC.  But now, in the present call for healing, and in the spirit of reconciliation, we humble ourselves and congratulate the Dynamic Duo of Morning TDS Drama Talk for being Numero Uno in that always important media time slot,  when most of America is shitin' shavin' and showerin', or thinking about the ecstasy of their first sip of their morning caffeine fix, or screaming to stop shoving Cherriors up you little brother nose!!

But be careful Joe, and don't strain your elbow patting yourselves on the back.  Just remember, as your hero Barky O' once said, "You Didn't Build That."

You see, it wasn't your morning dramatic repackaging of the very same rhetoric you used the morning before, or your foot stomping, doorslaming critique of everything DJT.  It wasn't you postulating everything you were once against or your frequent unhinged conspiracy theories No, it wasn't your illustrious crew; little pip Willie Geist nodding in agreement, gleefully awaiting his reward, or the disgraced, ethically challenged presidential historian John Meacham.  Nay, even the never-trumper and grifter extraordinaire Ricky Wilson or the Right Reverend Al who has added so much to your broadcast could take credit.  

No Joe. It took Fox News to drink the poison and commit suicide by alienating 60% of their viewers. Sorry to tell you Joe. 

But tell Mika to keep her tits up, it could be a lot worse. You both could be on CNN.

The Democrats’ Guide to Losing Gracefully

Below are excerpts from the Ann Coulter column of 11/12/2020. I have never really been a big Coulter fan as I find her crass, and off putting in a Hillary Clinton way.  BUT, she seems more often than not directly over the target and droppin' bombs. This is one of her more informative kicks to the groin of the dems recently......
I hope someone is recording the media’s demands that Trump supporters ACCEPT THE RESULTS OF THE ELECTION! inasmuch as the Democrats refuse to accept the results of any presidential election they lose, unless it’s a landslide, and sometimes even then. 
After George W. Bush won the 2000 election — despite the media depressing Bush turnout in Florida by calling the state for Gore when polls were still open in the conservative panhandle — Gore contested the election until Dec. 13, the day after the Supreme Court called off the endless recounts (in only certain Florida counties) demanded by Gore. 
The next day, Gore conceded. But that still wasn’t the end of it! Weeks later, the Congressional Black Caucus tried to prevent congressional certification of the Electoral College for Bush, raising objection after objection on the House floor. 
Over the course of the next year, the Florida ballots were painstakingly recounted, paid for by the same media outlets (New York Times, CNN, The Washington Post and the Associated Press) currently telling you to shut up and accept the results. 
When Bush was reelected in 2004, Democrats again refused to accept the results of the election, and again attempted to block Congress’ counting of electoral votes, this time with the connivance of Sen. Barbara Boxer.   Their smoking gun? The election results in Ohio didn’t match the exit polls!......"
Here's her list of the last 11 Presidential Election Results, according to Democrats:
 
 — 1972: Nixon landslide — no provable cheating.
 — 1976: Carter won — FAIR ELECTION, CLEAN AS A WHISTLE!! 
 — 1980: Reagan won by traitorously colluding with Iran to prevent the release of American          hostages before the election!
— 1984: Reagan landslide — no provable cheating.
— 1988: Bush 41 won in a landslide because of his racist Willie Horton ads.
— 1992: Clinton won with 43% of the vote — FAIR ELECTION, CLEAN AS A WHISTLE!!
— 1996: Clinton won with 49% of the vote — FAIR ELECTION, CLEAN AS A WHISTLE!!
— 2000: Bush 43 was “selected, not elected” after the Supreme Court stole it for him.
— 2004: Bush won because of Diebold hacking the voting machines in Ohio.
— 2008: Obama won — FAIR ELECTION, CLEAN AS A WHISTLE!!
— 2012: Obama won — FAIR ELECTION, CLEAN AS A WHISTLE!!
— 2016: Trump won after colluding with Russia to persuade them to purchase $200,000 in        Facebook ads.

If that’s how we’re supposed to “accept the results of the election,” then WOW — game on!

Exactly What Would It Take to Convince Anyone of Election Rigging?


The media and Big Tech are working overtime to censor, crush reports and dispute any evidence of voter irregularities. So a lot of people don’t even know what is being alleged in the numerous sworn affidavits. I desperately want to believe that people, if presented the evidence, will accept it. Or at the very least be open to it, awaiting further confirmation.  

Now before I go any further, I want to ask a simple question: Remember that a) lying in a sworn affidavit to a court is a crime. And b) doing anything that is seen as helping Trump will subject you to all manner of hell.  In light of that, do you believe the countless witnesses who now have sworn to seeing illegal activity leading up to and through the election would lie?  

Now, for those fair-minded people who support Biden, may I ask a few questions?

Pray Tell. Do you believe...

......It would be wrong for election supervisors to coach workers to correct mail-in ballots for Biden, but not for Trump?
......That it would also be wrong for election workers to coach voters to vote for Biden and Democrats, and follow them to the ballot station?
......It would be wrong for poll workers to go out to a Biden-Harris van in the middle of the night and fill out ballots?
......That it would be likewise wrong for poll workers to fill in the names of people who hadn’t yet voted when a “voter” comes in who is not on the voter rolls?
......It’s wrong for poll workers to ignore matching signature requirements?
......That it’s wrong for counting centers to keep Republican poll watchers from observing hundreds of thousands of mail-in ballots? ......It was wrong for Philadelphia Democrats to ignore a court order that demanded poll watchers have their rightful access?
......That it’s wrong for a Democratic- controlled ballot-counting center Fulton County, Georgia to tell GOP observers they were done counting for the night
….then resume counting the minute the observers left?
......It was wrong for Nevada voting officials to fabricate proof of residence data for non-eligible voters?
......That it was likewise wrong for postal supervisors in several states to order workers to post-date late arriving ballots, so it would falsely appear they arrived on time?
......It is wrong to cast ballots using the dead?
......That it is wrong to count ballots from people ineligible to vote in a particular state?
......It is wrong for a state supreme court to ignore state law and the U.S. constitution to change the voting rules right before an election? Rules guaranteed to make the process more susceptible to fraud?

Each of those statements is asserted in 131 sworn affidavits from poll workers, poll watchers and whistleblowers or happened in broad daylight. So please answer me honestly: How many of these wrongs laid out are you willing to outright dismiss? Doesn’t fairness dictate you at least listen to what these people have to say? 

How many people must swear under penalty of imprisonment for perjury before you acknowledge the vote tallies are horribly tarnished? Would Any of This Be Suspicious?

ZERO Media Ethics: Paid MSNBC Contributor Has Been Writing Biden’s Speeches


The New York Times revealed in Monday's edition that the former $2 Newsweek editor, Politically Correct Historian, and paid MSNBC/NBC contributor Jon Meacham, while appearing almost daily as a contributor to the networks political coverage has been writing speeches for Joe Biden, including his much heralded Saturday night “victory speech”.

The networks never disclosed the fact that Meacham, one of the more vicious Trump critics and a fixture on 'Squinty & Meat Puppet in the Morning', was actually a paid Biden campaign member.

This failure of disclosure and lack of ethics isn't entirely surprising and network seemed not to care that Meacham openly endorsed Biden during the campaign and spoke at the Democratic National Convention.  And that’s in addition to the fact that their ethically-challenged ranks include the disgraced plagiarizer Mike Barnicle, notorious homophobe Joy Reid, who makes Alex Jones sound like William F. Buckley, America's leading race pimp & tax evader Al Sharpton and the legendary lying Brian Williams.

Meacham teamed up with Lying Brian Saturday night to gloat on the election results and chime in on Biden's most excellent "Presidential Victory Speech" he failed to reveal he crafted. This is but a brief glimpse of the media smoke that will be blown to cover the Biden/Harris sideshow these next 4 years.

A Well Known Member of the Media Shares Their Thoughts on the 2020 Election

These are the thoughts below of a media member, not just a reporter with a laptop, one with major airtime on an alleged News Network.  After what we have seen and heard the last 10 months, I find it's not difficult at all to believe most major national media think along the same lines in relation to their jobs of informing the public. They have not hid it well. This one in particular...... 

A Twitter Feed Thread Reader Unroll

1)  Been trying to keep it out of my mind, but had things gone the other way? Tonight I'd be thinking about how we would cover tripled mass death once Trump fully unleashed his herd immunity plan, whether Russia would see all sanctions dropped, whether Barr would start arresting Dems

2)  including former Obama officials left and right on made-up charges, and millions would suffer once SCOTUS eliminated healthcare while congress sat idle.  I'd fear a frenzy of police violence against protesters and Black people. And the world would be done with us. We'd be alone.

3)  And in the streets today and tonight, instead of jubilant crowds, dancing and singing, there might be armed gunman roaming the streets swinging AR-15s over their shoulders and guttural shouting about how libs better watch out because Trump said "stand back and stand by" so...

4)  Neo-Nazis would be fully unleashed. Stephen Miller would be able to shut down all non-white immigration and mass-deport DACA recipients. Trump would go full autocrat and it's not clear we'd have any meaningful voting rights left. And now we know Republicans would abet it all.

5)  If things had gone down differently, we would be covering a country that would no longer be a democracy in any reasonable sense. It's not clear a full Kleptocrat Trump would ever leave. That's what today would have been like had Biden and Harris not won. That's not hyperbole.

6)  Thank God none of that happened. But as many have warned, we came as close this week as we ever have to losing our democracy. 70 million Americans voted to just give it away, in order to preserve their vision of a white-dominated, 1950s America.

7)  That means our democracy is super fragile. Not everyone is even invested in it. So we need to stay woke and stay vigilant. The enemy isn't just without, it is within our society; lurking in people's fears and prejudices, ready to be used and abused by bad men.

8)  We will soon be rid of one bad man (though he has 72 more days to wreak havoc). But bad men remain in power still. They are still there, and in some cases, safely re-elected and free to do whatever it is they want, to glop up more power for themselves. It's pretty frightening. But for now, I'm just relieved that the worst didn't happen.
____________________________________

Now you might expect statements like this to come from a bitter, liquored up Hillary Clinton or one of the many unhinged soft skull virtue signaling Hollywood pretenders.  But it's not. It's but a sign of journalism's slow suicide.  It's the sick mental excretions of a petty and vicious race baiter and inventor of 'Time Traveling Hackers' she blamed for exposing her past online bigotry and homophobia, who was promoted to a network political analyst, then awarded with an evening network program.  And sadly, with the power and protection of her melanin count will soon be out front and center to defend at all cost Biden/Harris no matter what, no matter the evidence of any corruption, incompetence or scandal and will convince many their eyes and ears lie to them.

The Social Justice Warriors Took a Damaging Broadside.


When every vote cast (real and fraudulent) has been counted, Joe Biden will probably have enough states to claim victory. But this is not a moment for Democrats to celebrate as it could have been.  Arrogant Democrats failed to win a Senate majority and appears to have lost ground in the House.  Some want San Fran Nan's head on a spike, and an internal party civil war may be ahead.  That means that Biden is on track to be a weak, ineffectual president governing at the mercy of Mitch McConnell's Machiavellian machinations.

So much for the Democratic fantasy, the one that seemingly never dies, of unobstructed rule.  Democrats didn't just want to win and govern in the name of a deeply divided nation's fractured sense of the common good.  No, they want to lead a moral revolution, to transform the country.  Not only enacting a long list of new policies, but making a series of institutional changes that would entrench their power far into the future.  Pack the Supreme Court.  Add left-leaning states.  Break up others to give the left huge margins in the Senate.  Get rid of the Electoral College.  Abolish the police.  Rewrite the nation's history, with white supremacy and racism placed at the very center. Ensure 'equity' not just in opportunity but in outcomes.  Hell, maybe they'd even establish a Truth and Reconciliation Commission. Despite the screaming and yelling in the streets by the toxic soft skulls, nothing from the poisonous progressive-fantasy wish list will come anywhere close to passing congress. 

Instead, we will have grinding, obstructive gridlock. Social Justice warriors like the squad will demand that Biden push through progressive priorities by executive order.  But if he does,  the country will move closer to witnessing a conservative backlash that results in Republicans taking control of the House and increasing their margin in the Senate in November 2022, rendering the Biden administration even more fully dead in the water.

Democrats live in a country with a large, passionate opposition. Arrogant talk of demographic inevitabilities and transformative changes to lock Republicans out of power in the name of "democracy" has the effect of inspiring that opposition to unite against them, rendering political success less assured and more tenuous.

Tucker Carlson Completely Eviscerates the Media's Analysts and Bad Predictions

This clip speaks for itself.  Carlson took to the air during election coverage to point out in his typical most excellent fashion how terrible our intellectual betters in the media are at their jobs. They’ve been suggesting to viewers and their tweeter followers a coming bluewave and a presidential blow-out for months now.  That’s clearly not going to happen now.  Republicans are now a heavy favorite to keep the Senate at this point.  So, with such a miserable record of late, what future is there for poll analysts and CNN’s genius election commentators now?  Perhaps teaching creative writing or learning to code might be a better match for their skill set?

The Invention of "the mathematical president-elect"


"If news organizations declare Joe Biden the mathematical president-elect, he plans to address the nation as its new leader" the leftist News Organ Axios reports in "Scoop: Biden's plan to assert control."
"Biden advisers learned the lesson of 2000, when Al Gore hung back while George W. Bush declared victory in that contested election, putting the Democrat on the defensive while Bush acted like the winner. So if Biden is declared the winner, he'll begin forming his government and looking presidential — and won't yield to doubts Trump might try to sow."
It's very interested in the tone of this report because just yesterday Axios reported on DJT's supposed devious, anti-democratic totalitarian plan to do the same thing. 

Here's the Axios piece: " Scoop: Trump's plan to declare premature victory "Axios treated Trump as though he'd be doing something wrong to declare victory early. This strategic move was portrayed as premised on "false" and "baseless" claims. But when Biden has the same strategic plan, it's presented as wise and a defense against "doubts Trump might try to sow."

Now, I assume Axios would defend itself by saying the 2 plans are different. Trump's purported plan is to say the election night count should predominate and we should be suspicious of whatever gets counted later. It's expected that more Trump supporters will vote in person on Election Day and more Biden supporters mailed in their votes. Biden's plan is based on something that "news organizations declare" — that Biden is "the mathematical president-elect."

I think we can expect news organizations to declare things that help Biden, and what exactly is this math?! Is it something like the number of uncounted ballots and an assumption about the proportion of these ballots that should go for Biden?

Vox.com Yglesias Suggest Directing Violent Acts by Biden/Harris Supporters Toward Trump Properties.


Excerpts from Sister Toldjah@RedState

I’ve said before, Democrats, the media, and social media platforms like Twitter and Facebook always hold themselves to different standards than they do folks on the right. They hold Republicans to two standards, and themselves to none. Wash, rinse, repeat.

We’ve been listening to our intellectual betters in the mainstream media for weeks now tell us that if any post-election violence goes down, that Trump supporters will be the ones stoking it and participating in it because they simply will not be able to control themselves if President Trump loses to Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden.

CNN senior media correspondent Tater Stelter and his sidekick Olie Darcy have both been two of many who have pushed this bunk, ignoring the fact that business owners in Democrat-run cities across America have boarding up their buildings over the last several days because they’ve been witness to the Antifa/BLM-led riots that have plagued their cities since the death of George Floyd back on May 25th. Needless to say, they don’t want their businesses to be among the victims of the far left’s wrath.

In contrast to StelterCo., Vox.com co-founder and senior correspondent Matt Yglesias doesn’t appear to be interested in participating in such a high degree of media gaslighting. While that’s something to be thankful for on election eve, what is alarming about journalist Yglesias’ hot take on what might happen in the aftermath of the election was his encouragement of violence against Trump-owned properties in the event he “steals” the election. He urged rioters to hit Trump’s hotel in DC – where men, women, and children would be sleeping and hotel staff working – if they felt like “smashing windows”: 
While it’s true Yglesias eventually did delete his tweet, it was several hours later, and only after conservatives called him out for it – not any of his colleagues in the media, nor the hall monitors at Twitter.

Strangely enough, the same media firefighters – including Stelter and all the rest – could simply not be bothered to condemn a fellow journalist for encouraging the very type of violence they say will be coming from supporters of President Trump.
