The Alt-Left controls journalism

Ever wonder why the Mediacrats focus so much attention on the alt-right?

Gamergate used to be a debate about the alt-left’s takeover of journalism. Now that the alt-left controls journalism, period, it’s become a national debate about fake news.

“Sarah Jeong’s racism isn’t an isolated incident. It’s a culture that is taking over newsrooms. The complete disregard for facts, the pervasive contempt for the political opposition, the impassioned victimhood, and the ravening hatred poorly disguised as comedy now defines the media.

“And so we don’t talk about the alt-left, because when we talk about the alt-left, we’re talking about the media.”

Tagesspiegel

It reads, “Login failed. User account ‘BenGoldstein’ was blocked.”

I cut out Islam, made no jokes (or only benign ones), did not comment on gender…didn’t help. The narrow-mindedness has become extreme. There is no way that my choice of words, the “tone”, could have been a problem. Others actually behave rudely. Most of my comments were on the topic of antisemitism.

I would lie if I said that I don’t find this whole development depressing. How can a culture fall so deeply so fast? Germans are specialists.

And the French are following. According to ZEIT the Supreme court ruled today that the principle of “fraternite” allows people to hide illegal immigrants and break the laws. This is the most ridiculous verdict I have ever heard. It is the abolishment of laws as such and their replacement with gut feelings.

And there is this glib cheering that the article conveyed. The commenters…

Rule 5: Aliss Bonython

Fish Camp

Mr. Boy drove off to College Station this morning to participate in Texas A&M University’s four-day “Fish Camp” for incoming freshmen. As in “fresh fish.”

Originally an invention of the Corps of Cadets when A&M was an all-male military school (officially co-ed in ’63 but not actually until women were allowed in the Corps in ’74), Fish Camp included some inevitable harassment of the newbies. It was only the prelude to Fish Year.

Mr. B. says it’s not that way now. Camp (in cabins around a lake) is just a chance to learn Aggie traditions while making new friends, with time out for swimming and games. We’ll see.

Newspapers collude to attack Trump

Gee, haven’t they (and radio and TV and some of the Internet) been doing that since 2016?. But this is a special effort called and coordinated by the Boston Globe (owned sold by the NYSlimes in 2013) due to Trump’s general “fake news” criticism and his “enemy of the people” charge against specific outlets.

“I hope it would educate readers to realize that an attack on the First Amendment is unacceptable,’’ said Marjorie Pritchard, deputy managing editor for the editorial page of The Boston Globe. ‘‘We are a free and independent press, it is one of the most sacred principles enshrined in the Constitution.’’

Ah, but the First Amendment doesn’t say the government can’t criticize the news media.

“Mr. Trump enjoys free speech just as his media adversaries do. Rather, the First Amendment prevents government from infringing on the rights of Americans to speak and publish. And on that score, there’s a reasonable case that Mr. Trump’s predecessor presented a greater threat to press freedom, to say nothing of Mr. Trump’s 2016 opponent. Mrs. Clinton wanted to restrict the ability of Americans to make a documentary about her. We don’t recall editorial boards joining together to announce they were not with her.”

UPDATE: Another recovering journalist: “By Friday, those pages will be in the bottom of recycle bins and bird cages. And in their cozy, mutual isolations, millions on both sides will feel sure once more that they’re in the right.”

The Renegade Jew

“[William] Kristol is a renegade Jew, and an apologist for anti-Constitutional, illegal manipulation by America’s self-designated ‘deep state.’ His hatred for Donald Trump has unhinged him. Decent people should cross the street to avoid walking too close to him.”—Orthodox Jew David P. Goldman.

I am growing tired of Kristol’s magazine The Weekly Standard. It was a fairly objective conservative take on the news until it became as mindlessly anti-Trump as Kristol himself. Who has become a renegade Jew by betraying critical Jewish interests, such as Trump’s more-than-Bronco’s support of Israel just because it’s Trump.

Lonesome Dove

Barbara Ellen and me watched the conclusion of Lonesome Dove the other night, weeping at the appropriate parts because we’re both suckers for cinematic manipulation.

I thought the ending was weak but after all that came before it was acceptable. I still like the book better.
