Univision Fangirling of VP Harris at Mexico Presser, or MAJOR Security Breach?

0

When “María Fernanda from Univision” took the mic on Tuesday night and asked Vice President Kamala Harris a flattering question to cap off her trip to Mexico, it seemed like Univision’s sycophantic day had taken a turn for the worse. But the truth might be far worse than what it seems.

Watch as “Maria Fernanda from Univision” asked what seemed like a question totally in line with Univision’s editorial line, “I voted for you” aside:

 

 

SYMONE SANDERS: Our next question will come from Maria Fernanda. At Univision.

MARIA FERNANDA: Thank you, Madame Vice President. For me, it’s an honor because I actually got to vote for the first time as a nationalized(sic) citizen. I voted for you. So —

VICE PRESIDENT KAMALA HARRIS: Thank you.

MARIA FERNANDA: — my question is, what would you say to these women — those mothers and also women of color on both sides of the border, farmers, many of them who I see every day. As a message of hope, but also, what will you do for them in the next coming years?

HARRIS: That’s a great question. And thank you.

Slam dunk story. “Univision reporter fawns all over Kamala Harris” practically writes itself, especially after the earlier “Mexican cousin” story.

But as the video began to make the rounds on Twitter, we heard directly from Univision’s President of News, Daniel Coronell:

That’s as crystal clear a statement of disavowal as there can be.

Univision prime-time anchor Ilia Calderón also made a similar statement, tweeting:

Further complicating the issue is the fact that Univision Mexico City correspondent Jésica Zermeño (pictured below) was on site at the Harris press conference (who retweeted Coronell’s statement). 

Given all these elements, we are faced with one of only two possible scenarios which are, by degrees of exponential magnitude, far worse than the original “Univision reporter fangirls over Kamala, says ‘I voted for you’” story:

Coronell’s statement is true, in which case we are talking about a MAJOR security breach and vetting failure from the Secret Service, Mexican state security, and the White House press team (led by former CNN political commentator Symone Sanders) 
Coronell is lying, in which case (as my colleague Curtis Houck pointed out) Univision has a major journalistic scandal on their hands.

This is a developing story with multiple angles, and we will keep you posted as they unfold.

Biden revokes Trump’s TikTok ban, creates framework for guarding U.S. data

0

President Joe Biden on Wednesday rescinded former President Donald Trump’s executive orders that sought to effectively ban the Chinese-owned video app TikTok, instead replacing it with new guidelines for assessing apps’ potential risks to U.S. data.

Trump signed a slew of executive orders last year aimed at forcing TikTok, WeChat and other apps linked to China to shutter their U.S. operations, citing allegations that Amercians’ personal data could fall into the hands of government officials in Beijing. TikTok last year sued to block the actions, and the courtroom battle has since dragged into the Biden administration.

In its place, a new Biden executive order establishes a set of criteria to evaluate whether transactions involving software apps with ties to foreign adversaries threaten Americans’ data.

A senior Biden administration official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the order “is going to enable us to take strong steps to protect sensitive data of Americans from collection and utilization of foreign adversaries including China through connected software applications.”

The executive order additionally directs the Commerce Department to issue recommendations for regulatory and legislative action to “address the risk associated with foreign adversary connected software applications,” according to a White House news release.

A spokesperson for TikTok, which is owned by the Chinese tech giant ByteDance, declined to comment on Biden’s action. A WeChat spokesperson did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Biden’s action drew criticism on Wednesday from allies of Trump, who accused the president of being soft on China.

"This is a major mistake — shows alarming complacency regarding #China’s access to Americans’ personal information, as well as #China’s growing corporate influence," tweeted Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.), a China hawk and outspoken critic of TikTok.

The move comes a day after the Senate passed a massive bipartisan bill aimed at countering China’s technological rise.

Wednesday’s announcement is the latest instance of the Biden administration stepping back from a messy legal fight started by the Trump administration. Biden last month rescinded a Trump executive order that had ordered agencies to take a series of steps to limit a decades-old liability shield for digital platforms, which the former president had justified by alleging that social media networks like Facebook and Twitter systematically silence conservative voices.

Are Democrats Superheroes Now? CNN Wants Them to Save Democracy

0

Only Democrats can save democracy. Hadn’t you heard? Yahoo News national correspondent Brittany Shepherd joined Tuesday’s CNN Newsroom to discuss just how the party plans to do that. And no, she’s not a DNC employee. It just sounds that way. Shepherd noted that Republicans are too scared to do anything on the matter, “so now it is squarely on Democrats.”  

Host Jim Sciutto, citing the portion of former President Obama’s interview Anderson Cooper where the two discussed how Republicans are undermining democracy, wondered:

 

 

Obama is not alone in describing the current environment as a threat to the nation’s democratic system. President Biden has done the same, as have other Democratic lawmakers, by the way, some Republican lawmakers as well. I just wonder in your view who given the severity of those warnings among Democrats is providing the leadership to respond to that. I mean, if it that is the true crisis and challenge to this democracy in effect what are Democrats doing about it? Who’s leading the way? 

Shepherd began by expressing frustration that Republicans refuse go along with the premise that democracy itself is at stake:

Well, clearly, Jim, that leadership is not coming from the Republican Party. When you talk to Republican sources, staffers, you say well, ‘Democrats are levying pretty serious allegations against you. You’re a coward, no backbone, letting democracy slip by, by not speaking up.’ They say look what happened to Liz Cheney, look what happened to Brian Kemp over the weekend. He gets booed out of his own constituency and they say they fear for not just 2020 but for the political careers writ large. 

According to Shepherd, the White House concurs with this assessment, “So the White House realizes there is nothing Republicans are going to do until the midterm elections to fix this mess, frankly and so now it is squarely on Democrats and they’re thinking in the same terms that Obama and Anderson is talking about, voting rights, the ballot box is the only way to maybe turn what happened in Congress by electing more Democrats.”

As the minority party, Republicans also want to focus on Biden’s agenda and 2022, so of course they’re not interested in playing the media’s game of talking non-stop about 2020, especially when they say the fate of democracy depends on whether Democrats are successful in ramming through their agenda.

CNN Newsroom with Poppy Harlow and Jim Sciutto

10:06 AM ET

JIM SCIUTTO: Obama is not alone in describing the current environment as a threat to the nation’s democratic system. President Biden has done the same, as have other Democratic lawmakers, by the way, some Republican lawmakers as well. I just wonder in your view who given the severity of those warnings among Democrats is providing the leadership to respond to that. I mean, if it that is the true crisis and challenge to this democracy in effect what are Democrats doing about it? Who’s leading the way? 

BRITTANY SHEPHERD: Well, clearly, Jim, that leadership is not coming from the Republican Party. When you talk to Republican sources, staffers, you say well, “Democrats are levying pretty serious allegations against you. You’re a coward, no backbone, letting democracy slip by, by not speaking up.” They say look what happened to Liz Cheney, look what happened to Brian Kemp over the weekend. He gets booed out of his own constituency and they say they fear for not just 2020 but for the political careers writ large. So the White House realizes there is nothing Republicans are going to do until the midterm elections to fix this mess, frankly and so now it is squarely on Democrats and they’re thinking in the same terms that Obama and Anderson is talking about, voting rights, the ballot box is the only way to maybe turn what happened in Congress by electing more Democrats. And that’s why on the ground Democrats and progressives, not just at Joe Manchin and Krysten Sinema but at the White House for not putting their foot down because they believe this is the only way to essentially circumvent a problem they feel is pressing. Because Obama said in that interview, you know, he feels he lives in different world than Trump. And that’s certainly true. But in this reality, 73 million people voted for Trump. I believe the figure is about 60% of Republicans believe that Trump was shorted in some way for the election. That is reality. That’s not a bug of what is happening now. So it really has to happen in legislation, at least that’s how the White House is thinking about it.

ABC, CBS Ignore Harris’s Border Blunder, Tout Her Snapping at Critics

0

As NewsBusters documented on Tuesday, Vice President Kamala Harris delivered a colossal blunder when pressed by NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt on why she hadn’t visited the U.S.-Mexico border despite being the point person on the crisis.

Her bewildering comment about how she had not been to Europe either was completely ignored by ABC’s World News Tonight, while the CBS Evening News tried to strip the extreme flippantness from it by paraphrasing the quote.

Both networks were essentially acting as the presidential press shop. “We turn next here to Vice President Kamala Harris concluding her high stakes visit to Guatemala and Mexico, taking on border issues and the root causes of some of what the U.S. is seeing on the U.S. border with Mexico,” boasted ABC anchor Davis Muir.

He added: “The Vice President meeting today with Mexico’s President Obrador, insisting the U.S. must focus on the root causes of migration. She said this is not a quick fix in talking with reporters, and she was pressed again about when she’ll go to the U.S. border.”

Muir followed up with edited soundbites of Harris scolding her critics at a press conference:

If this were easy, it would have been handled a long time ago. And there is no question that it is complex, in fact. And that we have to navigate the complexities of it with a goal of solving it. [Transition] Listen, I’ve been to the border before, I will go again. But when I’m in Guatemala dealing with root causes, I think we should have a conversation about what’s going on in Guatemala.

 

 

Harris received a similar hero’s welcome from CBS anchor Norah O’Donnell. “Vice President Kamala Harris just wrapped up a two-day trip to Guatemala and Mexico focusing on the root issues of illegal immigration,” she boasted at the top of the segment. “But tonight, Harris is pushing back on criticism that she has yet to visit the southern border as new video reminds us why the situation is so dire.”

And senior White House correspondent Weijia Jiang grossly tried to use the case of an abandoned little girl at the border to bolster Harris’s mission:

New video from U.S. Border Patrol shows an abandoned five-year-old girl from Guatemala running alone along the wall in California. Agents quickly rescued her, but her journey illustrates the migrant crisis that Vice President Kamala Harris is tackling on a two-day trip.

“It’s her first big diplomatic assignment from President Biden,” Jiang touted.

Jiang did note Republican criticism of Harris’s refusal to visit the border and see the crisis first hand. But she then tried to take the awkwardness out of the Vice President’s flippant comment by just paraphrasing it: “Pressed about why not, Vice President Harris said she had not been to Europe, either.”

For NBC’s part, they did continue to share Harris’s blunder with viewers. But they also lauded the importance of her trip.

This attempt to imitate the White House press office was made possible because of the lucrative sponsorships from Progressive on both ABC and CBS. Their contact information is linked so you can tell them about the biased news they fund. CBS Evening News has also asked people to “text Norah” at this number: (202) 217-1107.

NORAH O’DONNELL: Vice President Kamala Harris just wrapped up a two-day trip to Guatemala and Mexico focusing on the root issues of illegal immigration. But tonight, Harris is pushing back on criticism that she has yet to visit the southern border as new video reminds us why the situation is so dire. Here is CBS’s Weijia Jiang.

WEIJIA JIANG: New video from U.S. Border Patrol shows an abandoned five-year-old girl from Guatemala running alone along the wall in California. Agents quickly rescued her, but her journey illustrates the migrant crisis that Vice President Kamala Harris is tackling on a two-day trip.

It is her first big diplomatic assignment from President Biden.

VP KAMALA HARRIS: We are embarking on a new era.

JIANG: Today, the Vice President met with Mexican president Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador after visiting Guatemala.

HARRIS: If this were easy, it would have been handled a long time ago. And there is no question that it is complex.

JIANG: The latest government figure show border apprehensions remain at a 20-year high. Republicans said acknowledging the problem is not enough.

SEN. JOHN CORNYN (R-TX): The Vice President is finally hitting the trail this week to talk about the border crisis. But that seems to be all it is is talk. The only problem is she’s not visiting the border.

JIANG: Pressed about why not, Vice President Harris said she had not been to Europe, either.

HARRIS: Listen, I’ve been to the border before. I will go again.

Outrageous: Brian Williams Pushes Ad Likening Antifa Terrorists to American Patriots

0

On Friday night, MSNBC host Brian Williams collaborated with the Lincoln Project in giving free publicity to the far-left Antifa terrorist group by shamelessly exploiting the Normandy invasion that was pivotal to defeating the Nazis in Europe.

Williams — who still has not informed viewers of the Lincoln Project’s ethical problems — concluded the show by showing the group’s new ad lauding Antifa members, likening them to World War II patriots.

Setting up the ad, the MSNBC host recalled:

Last thing before we go tonight. An important anniversary coming up this weekend. We hope you can take a moment and remember it. It was beyond bold. It was outlandish. Over 150,000 men invading the French coastline under withering German fire to begin their march across Europe where they would go on to win World War II 336 days later. While others will debate whether or not we could possibly mount such a thing today as broken as we are, there was a time when we saved the world from tyranny and fascism. If it wasn’t our finest hour, it’s hard to say what was. And the folks at the Lincoln Project are out with a reminder to all.

Even though Antifa members use violence against peaceful conservative activists and try to stifle free speech, the ad tried to claim that they are akin to heroic U.S. troops who stormed the beaches at Normandy as it began by showing World War II era images of American troops in Europe:

CLIP OF AD WITH NARRATOR: Who is Antifa? They stormed the beaches of Normandy, parachuted into the French countryside and gave their lives to face down and fight back against fascism. They took down Nazi machine gun nests, tore apart the Third Reich’s strong holds, liberated concentration camps, liberated France, Italy, Belgium, Holland. Anywhere Antifa saw fascism, they fearlessly and relentlessly annihilated it.

The ad eventually included images of Donald Trump and Fox News host Tucker Carlson as it concluded:

Fascism was defeated because of patriots like these — proud Americans who knew that the fight against fascists was not simply a battle between opposing nations, it was a war against inhumanity, a war that isn’t nice but cannot be lost, a war we still fight today. (shows image of Donald Trump) Anti-fascism, it’s not a cable news talking point. (shows image of Tucker Carlson) It’s an American ideal that should be memorialized because it was paid for in blood.

BOOM! France Strikes Back, Fines Google $220 Million Euros for ‘Dominant Position’

0

The French Competition Authority is cracking down on Google for “abusing its market power” to defeat its online advertising competition.

Europeans have no qualms hitting Big Tech where it hurts. “France’s competition watchdog fined Google 220 million euros ($268 million) on Monday for abusing its market power in the online advertising industry,” CNBC reported on Monday. “Google has agreed to pay the fine and end some of its self-preferencing practices, the watchdog said.”

President of the French Competition Authority Isabelle de Silva expressed in an announcement (verified using Google Translate) that French regulation will help many competitors actually have a fair chance in the market: “This sanction and these commitments will make it possible to re-establish a level playing field for all actors, and the ability of publishers to make the most of their advertising spaces.”

CNBC quoted de Silva scorching Google for crushing competitors: “These very serious practices have penalized competition in the emerging online advertising market, and have enabled Google not only to preserve but also to increase its dominant position.”

Legal Director of Google France Maria Gomri announced in a company blog that the search engine will rapidly be reforming its advertising system in response:

We recognise the role that ad tech plays in supporting access to content and information and we’re committed to working collaboratively with regulators and investing in new products and technologies that give publishers more choice and better results when using our platforms.

A reckoning for Google’s power over online advertising has been a long time coming. CNBC observed that “[t]he investigation came after U.S.-based News Corp, French newspaper Le Figaro and the Belgian press group Rossel filed a complaint against Google.”

France has been a vocal opponent of Big Tech in the past year.

French President Emmanuel Macron expressed outrage over Big Tech companies choosing to “suddenly cut the mic” and silence “all the platforms where it was possible for [former President Donald Trump] and his supporters to express themselves,” AP News reported Feb. 4. Macron torched Big Tech as he spoke at the Atlantic Council forum for cynically deciding to censor Trump “[a]t the very second when they were sure” that Trump would lose the presidency.

Macron also raked Big Tech companies over the coals for enabling violent political groups in both France and the U.S., according to Axios. Macron observed: “The new violence in our democracies, largely linked to these social networks” is now “our new way of life,” Axios reported.

Conservatives are under attack! Contact Google at (650) 253-000, or by mail to 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, and demand that Big Tech stop censoring conservatives while allowing brazenly unscientific nonsense to be pushed.

Bozell RIPS Facebook for Censoring Trump, ‘Interfering’ in 2020 Election & 2024 Campaign

0

“Facebook’s ruling on former President Donald Trump is just the latest evidence that Big Tech wields far too much power,” Media Research Center President L. Brent Bozell declared. “Leftist Facebook executives weren’t satisfied with interfering with the 2020 election. Now, they want to interfere with the 2024 campaign by knee-capping Trump before he can even get started.”

Former President Donald Trump will be suspended from Facebook for at least two years, Facebook announced. Additionally, it decided to change the way it moderates speech from public figures in a massive blow to free speech online.

Facebook said the effective start date for the suspension of Trump’s account began “the date of the initial suspension on January 7 this year,” Facebook VP of Global Affairs Nick Clegg said in a company blog post. Facebook also discussed new rules regarding “Heightened Penalties for Public Figures During Times of Civil Unrest and Ongoing Violence.” 

Bozell blasted the censorship, further stating in a tweet that “Facebook’s new policy for politicians sets itself as the sole ruling body determining who can campaign to its nearly three billion customers. Americans need to prove to Big Tech that we are more powerful than they are while we still can.”

The platform, in continuing to censor Trump, absurdly concluded that it is still convinced Trump’s calls for “peace” during the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol constituted a “risk to public safety.” Clegg said in the Facebook statement: “Given the gravity of the circumstances that led to Mr. Trump’s suspension, we believe his actions constituted a severe violation of our rules which merit the highest penalty available under the new enforcement protocols.” 

It is unclear whether the platform will allow Trump to return even after the two-year suspension has ended. “[W]e will look to experts to assess whether the risk to public safety has receded,” Clegg wrote in the company blog. “We will evaluate external factors, including instances of violence, restrictions on peaceful assembly and other markers of civil unrest.” Twitter, meanwhile, has refused to allow Trump back on its platform. 

Facebook even admitted that people on both the right and the left will be unhappy with its decision. “We know today’s decision will be criticized by many people on opposing sides of the political divide,” the company noted. 

Trump also weighed in on Facebook’s decision. “Facebook’s ruling is an insult to the record-setting 75M people, plus many others, who voted for us in the 2020 Rigged Presidential Election,” he said in a statement. “They shouldn’t be allowed to get away with this censoring and silencing, and ultimately, we will win. Our Country can’t take this abuse anymore!”

The platform also discussed its plans to increase transparency into its censorship policies moving forward: 

“We are also committing to being more transparent about the decisions we make and how they impact our users. As well as our updated enforcement protocols, we are also publishing our strike system, so that people know what actions our systems will take if they violate our policies.”

The announcement followed the Oversight Board’s decision in May to at least temporarily uphold Facebook’s ban of Trump. The Board insisted Facebook review the decision within six months. Previously, Clegg said that “we will treat speech from politicians as newsworthy content that should, as a general rule, be seen and heard.” However, Facebook has now made it clear that is no longer the case.

Conservatives are under attack. Contact Facebook headquarters at 1-650-308-7300 and demand that Big Tech be held to account to mirror the First Amendment while providing transparency, clarity on “hate speech” and equal footing for conservatives. If you have been censored, contact us at the Media Research Center contact form, and help us hold Big Tech accountable.

The ‘Can’t Do’ Narrative Continues

0

President Biden has pledged to “help narrow the racial wealth gap and reinvest in communities that have been left behind by failed policies.” He used the 100th anniversary of the Tulsa race massacre in Greenwood, a thriving African American community ravaged by a racist mob in 1921, as the occasion to promise more federal contracts for minority-owned companies and address discrimination in home appraisals for black families.

The Tulsa mob murdered more than 300 Black men, women and children over a two-day period, May 31 to June 1, forcing thousands to flee for their lives while watching their homes and businesses burn to the ground. No one was ever held responsible for the devastation.

But Biden’s Tulsa appearance and speech continues a narrative favored by Democrats that reinforces the wrong belief that African Americans can do nothing without government. Of course, if government were their savior, would it not have solved all the problems Democrats continually talk about, but do little to fix?

Democrats want to keep reminding us how bad race relations have been historically and how bad they are now, but even Democrats must admit we’ve made significant progress. I offer just a few statements from accomplished African Americans who faced crippling discrimination and racism in their day but still became successful. These motivational words point us in the direction we need to go and could move many from a dependence on government to lives of self-sufficiency.

If Ken Burns were presenting these statements as one of his great documentaries, it might start with a picture followed by these quotes:

“If you have no confidence in self, you are twice defeated in the race of life.” Marcus Garvey (a Black nationalist and leader of the Pan-Africanism movement, which sought to unify and connect people of African descent worldwide).

A case could be made for school choice for low-income students denied a good education in failing inner-city schools: “The purpose of education is to create in a person the ability to look at the world for himself, to make his own decisions.” (James Baldwin, writer).

Speaking of the need for school choice, here’s one from Frederick Douglass: “It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men.”

On giving up because one believes there is no way out of one’s circumstances: “We may (en)counter many defeats but we must not be defeated.” (Maya Angelou)

“I had to make my own living and my own opportunity. But I made it! Don’t sit down and wait for the opportunities to come. Get up and make them.” (Madam C.J. Walker, an African American entrepreneur, philanthropist and social activist).

Need more? Here’s one from Rosa Parks: “Each person must live their life as a model for others.”

This one seems absent from all American culture today, regardless of one’s race: “We all have dreams. In order to make dreams come into reality, it takes an awful lot of determination, dedication, self-discipline and effort.” (Jesse Owens, Olympic runner)

Why do we rarely hear such thoughts expressed by especially Democrats and even Republicans when speaking to and about African Americans? Why aren’t the successful used as role models instead of the constant focus on the unsuccessful?

The narrative should be: This is how we became successful, and this is how you can be successful too. Changing the narrative offers potentially better outcomes than the one presently being promoted by liberal politicians.

More Indoctrination: Pregnant Actress ‘Excited’ to Take Baby to Pride March ASAP

0

This is probably obvious advice by now, but no one, and we mean NO ONE, should be modeling their parenting skills off of Hollywood celebrities.

As part of their “Pride Month” edition, People Magazine interviewed bisexual Brooklyn Nine-Nine actress Stephanie Beatriz about her heterosexual marriage and being pregnant. And, as it seems to be all the rage these days, the piece spent a beat on how Beatriz will be grooming her new baby with LGBTQ propaganda as soon as possible.

That sounds swell, doesn’t it? Hollywood and the media seems to be going all in with scandalizing children right out of the cradle. 

The 40-year-old actress has an unconventional sexuality herself. She came out as a bisexual in college and that bit of sexual expression provided some of the background context as to why she’s so willing to confuse her child. People did seem enamored that someone of her sexual persuasion could actually settle into a monogamous relationship with a man, her husband, Brad.

Yeah, traditional marriage? How exceedingly quirky.

When prompted about how such a sexual trailblazer could end up in such a traditional marital scenario with a kid, Beatriz told the magazine she never imagined it could happen. “I didn’t think that a committed partnership was really for me,” she said, adding, “I couldn’t really see kids. It wasn’t that I was closed off to it. It was more that I couldn’t quite see how a baby fit into the life that I was building.”

But then Beatriz met Brad Hoss, an “extremely empathetic and open” man, and it was history. Though she assured the magazine that her marriage hasn’t altered her sexuality one bit. She said it hasn’t made her “any less queer… I was able to be my fullest, most authentic self around Brad. He’s extremely empathetic and open.” Wow, amazing.

And since Beatriz is all about keeping her unorthodox sexual persuasion alive for posterity, she then explained how she will be taking her baby to “Pride” marches to keep the flame alive.

“I’m excited to take our kid to Pride someday,” the actress exclaimed. “I am so excited for our kid to experience all of the love that our extended friend group are ready to shower on this kid.” 

Beatriz explained, “Many of our friends identify as LGBTQIA so I’m just really thrilled that we’re going to add another person to the world that is going to be ready to embrace everyone with open arms.” Here we go with the early indoctrination of children into the immoral sexual milieu. It’s one thing for a consenting adult to choose these things, but for a kid who has no real concept of sexuality at a young age to be thrown into it is depraved. 

But that doesn’t stop Hollywood and other forms of media. Recently DisneyPlus announced that they’d be bringing a sexually diverse reboot of The Proud Family to child audiences on their platform, and Nick Jr. favorite Blues Clues featured its own “Pride March” to induce feelings of equality among youngsters. Even Kellogg’s brand cereals are now putting LGBTQ crap on their sugary breakfast products. 

We need to get back to a time when we considered this type of thing grooming.

Insecure MSNBC Tars Republicans as ‘Mentally Fragile’ and ‘Weak’

0

Wednesday night’s The ReidOut provided yet another example of the liberal media’s blatant hatred for conservatives. During the “Absolute Worst” segment, Reid smeared Republicans as the absolute worst because of their “victim status envy.” Afterwards, she brought in Kurt Bardella, who agreed and juvenilely smeared Republicans as “mentally fragile, weak, scared little children in a corner.”

Reid opened the segment by addressing Republicans and their negative reaction to mask-mandates and other COVID policies and claimed they want “to be classed as victims.” Bardella quickly offered his opinion:

[T]here’s such a cognitive dissonance here. On one hand, the right likes to pride themselves on, quote-unquote, owning the libs, and calling everyone snowflakes. And on the other hand, they’re claiming to be victims. They’re delicate. They’re weak. They’re to be — you know, we’re supposed to feel pity for them. How horrible that they’re being infringed upon and attacked from the radicals, socialists, and all the things that they litter out there every single day. And the reality is, obviously, none of that is true. None of that is rooted in reality.

 

 

According to Bardella, the GOP can’t win when the conversation is rooted in facts and historical accuracy. As expected with the liberal media, he related this to fact-checking, a system that has been proven to promote leftist views: “…they’re hoping beyond hope that anybody who aligns with them won’t have the intellectual curiosity or ability to do a simple Google search and fact-check them.”

Naturally Reid ranted about how it is wrong for conservatives to call themselves victims, even as she played the race card. She even went on to make the bold claim that it is Republicans, not the radical left, who are constantly whining about being oppressed. With regards to COVID policy, Reid asked Bardella whether or not Republicans “want to spread COVID,” and he responded: “There has got to be a mental health explanation for the irrational desire to want to not wear a mask, go to super-spreader events, get everybody infected, infect their loved ones, their parents, their grandparents, watch them all die. And then they claim proudly that it’s their right to do that.”

Despite the obvious insecurity of left-wing MSNBC hosts and pundits who feel the need to constantly hurl vile insults at their political opponents, they claim those on the right are the ones playing the “victim.”

MSNBC’s The Reid Out
06/02/2021
7:41 p.m. Eastern

JOY REID: Joining me now is Kurt Bardella, “L.A. Times” contributor and Democratic Party strategist. And, Kurt, I mean, I hate to keep taking you back to the nightmare days of Breitbart, but I need for you to explain to me why Republicans have VSE, victim status envy. Why do they want so badly to redirect historic wrongs, especially racially-based wrongs, and make them themselves the star of that show and the victim? Why do they want to be classed as victims?

KURT BARDELLA: I mean, it’s a mania, Joy, here, I mean, because, again, there’s —there’s such a cognitive dissonance here. On one hand, the right likes to pride themselves on, quote-unquote, owning the libs, and calling everyone snowflakes. And on the other hand, they’re claiming to be victims. They’re delicate. They’re weak. They’re to be — you know, we’re supposed to feel pity for them. How horrible that they’re being infringed upon and attacked from the radicals, socialists, and all the things that they litter out there every single day. And the reality is, obviously, none of that is true. None of that is rooted in reality. But it’s the only thing that they can do. It’s the only fallback that they have.

They know that when the playing field is level, they can’t win. They know that in a conversation about actual public policy, about the things that truly impact people’s day-to-day lives, they can’t win. They know that in a conversation rooted in fact, reality, truth, historical accuracy and context, they can’t win. And so, they trot this line of B.S. out there every single day across the propaganda networks and channels, and they hope – they’re hoping beyond hope that anybody who aligns with them won’t have the intellectual curiosity or ability to do a simple Google search and fact-check them on their nonsense. That’s what they’re hoping.

REID: It’s wild, because, you know, right, they tried to sort of play that they’re the macho party. But there’s the least macho thing in the world is self-pity. And, you know, you’re sitting here as somebody who has talked about anti-Asian violence, how it’s impacted you.

You know, I’m a black person, so, hello, 1619 and on it’s been rough. But the whininess that you see — you don’t see that from people of color. Oh they’re literally like, they won’t let me wear — not wear a mask in Walmart, and I just want to go in Costco and cough on you.

You know, do you get the sense that they — is this that they want to spread COVID? Is that they feel it’s their right to spread COVID? Is this like a measles blanket thing from the puritans? What is this? Why do they seem to want to spread COVID?

BARDELLA: I go back to, it’s this mania, right? I mean, there has got to be a mental health explanation for the irrational desire to want to not wear a mask, go to super-spreader events, get everybody infected, infect their loved ones, their parents, their grandparents, watch them all die. And then the claim proudly that it’s their right to do that. That it`s somehow wrapped in this misguided sense of liberty and freedom. Those are the buzzwords, Joy — liberty, freedom.

REID: Yeah, it`s a right to die. It’s basically a right to die.

BARDELLA: Right, and the Republicans have been using those words and the blanket of patriotism as an excuse for all the oppression that they have put forward against communities of color, against working poor, against minorities and immigrants, and the least vulnerable among us. And so, this is the game that they continually play. And you’re right, it is — it is — talking about this wannabe macho party, this wannabe tough guy, strong man act that they pull, these people are the most mentally fragile, weak, scared little children in a corner, hiding people that you will ever find, because at the end of the day, when push comes to shove, and they get caught and they get pulled before court, they’re the ones crying to their lawyers now, saying, oh, I had Fox psychosis. I was — I can’t believe this happened. They fold immediately like a house of cards when they get called on their B.S.
