Fake revolt at Politico

The media wants you to think that Ben Shapiro isn't actually on their side:

The suppression of any and all things conservative took an ugly turn yesterday when Politico staffers recoiled at the invitation to conservative writer Ben Shapiro to join the staff for the online publication’s popular “Playbook” section on Thursday.

One staffer said in a Politico company-wide Slack channel that Shapiro has a “long history of bigoted and incendiary commentary.” This is a baseless, false allegation. Shapiro may be a partisan, but he’s hardly a bomb-thrower. Shapiro wrote in his “Playbook” posting, “Republicans believe that Democrats and the overwhelmingly liberal media see impeachment as an attempt to cudgel them collectively by lumping them in with the Capitol rioters thanks to their support for Trump.”

This is self-evident. Besides, Shapiro was claiming it was what Republicans believe, not him personally. Democrats and the left may be uncomfortable being called out for their despicable politics but, given the attempts to stifle conservative thought on social media and elsewhere, what other conclusion can be drawn?

This is how the bifactional ruling party attempts to convince you to accept their gatekeepers as your opinion leaders. Remember how well it worked with Jordan Peterson - he must be the right-wing hero for whom conservatives have been waiting if he bravely stands up to the liberal media on one trivial issue that no one actually cares about, right!

The Shapiros, Petersons, Pragers and other conservative frauds are actually worse than the Left they pretend to fight because they are successfully deceiving you. But in truth, they are little satans serving the same evil master. As are the Ed Driscolls of the world who try to sell you the slapfight as real.

It's interesting to note that this attempt to burnish Shapiro's conservative credentials has appeared so soon after he found himself putting a foot wrong with conservatives again, this time with regards to the widespread approval of the storming of the Capitol.

Vox, in these types of posts, you often include Dennis Prager. Yet I dont think you've specified your criticism. Im aware of your reasons for Shapiro, Malkin, Peterson, etc. Can you clarify re Prager?

Blogger mjkeegs January 17, 2021 11:08 AM  

Is there any place for people like Shapiro and Prager to at least get people thinking in the right direction? I have to think their views are closer to the truth than the mainstream voices on the left. From personal experience, I wouldn't have even found Owen when I did if it wasn't for the Andrew Klavan podcast. Subsequently I wouldn't have eventually found Vox when I did.

Interestingly enough it was Shapiru calling VD a white supremacist that led me to this blog to confirm what I correctly suspected as lies.

Sometimes the 'gatekeepers' inadvertently serve as gateway drugs to those in search of the actual truth. The likes of Shapiru and Peterson can serve a function in a weird way, just not always the one their masters pay them to serve.

Vox can probably give more and better, but I remember Dalrock called out Prager as a churchian Judeo-christian, a worm-tongue spreading a false gospel.

Yep. More psyops.
Electing Trump bought us time to prepare for what came after. And we wasted it eating popcorn and watching psyops.
The most important thing he did was reawaken Nationalism in our country. People started to snap out of the globalist trance. After the Nov. steal, normies are starting to wake up to how bad things really are, but they're still working through the stages of grief, from denial to bargaining.
Things now are as bad as they get. If they've already started rounding dissidents up and executing them, you would not now about it because the information lockdown is near complete.
Trust God. You are the plan.
Stop looking to be lead by others. Be the leader!
If you won't get out in meat space and have meaningful risk taking nonviolent confrontations now, then you don't have what it takes to wage war when the time comes for that.

I'm tired of the holohoax praise Israel fellate Jew in endless tedium. How the hell did Israel become an important political issue? Why can't I$rael and Jew$ fight their own damn wars over in the ME? This seems to have occurred during the late 80's or early 90's. Maybe someone older or historically knowledgeable can help me here.

It's notable that another multimillionaire Jew bastard passed away last week after and will be buried in Israel. He also gave a plane flight to a known (((traitor))) who had an Israeli citizenship card waiting when he landed. But hey, America's best trustworthy friend forever, right?

In 2010 I recall the media making such a fuss over Sarah Palin and "her" Tea Party. Ooga booga they are out to get you.
10 minutes with a browser and you would know that Palin had nothing to do with the tea party, it's founding nearly a decade prior, and that it was heavily credited to Ron Paul who was known to attend the rallies.

That's when I really started to actually see that which I already suspected. It's just around then probably they started to get more careless in thinking everybody is as dumb as they are.

Blogger Evan E January 17, 2021 11:55 AM  

It's time we kill the term conservative. Conservatives haven't conserved squat. My local talk radio guy spends half his time apologizing. It's pathetic. I like Nationalist, as keeping a nation implies conservative principles by default, while also distancing from globalism, multiculturalism, and the absurdities of AnCaps.

Why is Dennis Prager, a fat, old Jewish guy with a fat old wife giving anyone marriage advice?

I don't want my American history taught to me by old Jews.

I'm so fucking tired of hearing people complain about how terrible Israel is being treated.

I'm so tired of being fed lies about Judeo-Christian heritage when there is none.

Blogger BeatYourHeadIn January 17, 2021 11:59 AM  

There's a place for them in the opposing camp, where they act as herdsmen for those souls who are discontented with the progressive agenda, but sufficiently blinded by the tamer or convoluted aspects of the propaganda campaign.

The reason they seem to direct individuals to vox and Owen and other truth seekers (and direct them, hopefully, to truly independent thinking) is IMO accidental.

They are there to lul the lazy and steer them towards the approved fold. Ask yourself how many that don´t go further in their quest for truth and stay on the reservation and you´ll see why they are there.

There is no place for liars, because liars actively prevent the truth from being told. Neo-Conservatism" ideology isn't American. It actively distorts American ideology to subvert and undermine the nation.

Prager sends out desperate pleas for help in pushing back against the elites narrative. All while hosting dinners that cost $700 a plate.

Shapiro such an obvious fake and liar. How many times has he stabbed someone on the Center-Right in the back to curry favor with Liberals? And then flip-flopped when the heat got too strong? Just label him a "Liberal". That's what all these fakes are, they're liberal who just disagree with the Leftists on a few issues. They all play on the same team, and pretend to oppose each other. Think Trotsky and Stalin.

Maybe I am way out of touch with all that approved crap that I never hear them say what exactly they want to conserve. But they are lucky men right wingers never ask questions so those guys can just make a living playing the stooge to their "liberal" accomplices.

I thank God that I don't have to rely on my own strength. I cannot speak the universe into existence. I cannot flood the Earth. I cannot call down fire from Heaven to destroy nations.

But, I know the one who can and when he stretches forth His hand who can turn it back?

Psalm 23
1 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.

2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.

3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.

4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.

Yes. The true battle, in a nutshell, is nationalism vs. globalism. Today's "conservatives" are just liberal globalists fighting over the details with other liberal globalists; and ceding ground continually, as we know.

It's sometimes dismaying how well this fraud works. I have an acquaintance, a small businessman. He home schooled all four of his sons. He's very religious. He supports Trump all the way. And yet he was convinced that Ben Shapiro is on his side. I've been working on separating him from that falsehood.

Do not label Shapiro as a liberal. Label him correctly. He is a jew, an Israel Firster, playing his part in the ancient jew trick known as the dialectic, which jews use to create conflict and division in a society, leading to civil conflict and destruction. He is a little snake who should be drowned in pigs blood.

American Thinker is no better. First, they turned off their comments section, then they caved to Dominion Software after Dominion’s lawyers sent them a nastygram. So I emailed them and called them cowards. I actually got a reply back. Thy compared their complete surrender to Washington’s retreat from the British. I called BS on that and then replied back, “ The other nice thing about George Washington was that he was renowned for his civility”. Cuckservative is truly an apt moniker for these .

The problem with Prager is he constantly lectures whites never to do identity politics while he does identity politics for his ethnicity. He’s smart enough to see this, so I have to conclude he’s knowingly giving out losing advice.

Shapiro's bragging he's got Candace Owens to hook up with him on the Daily Wire. My first reaction was surprise she'd connect with that Slime but then I remembered that last year Candace refused to be a speaker at Trump's GOP convention. Her excuse back then for distancing herself from our president didn't sit well with me but I gave her the benefit of the doubt. But now that I see who she's cuddling up with today, there's no doubt in my mind Candace is NOT the person she purports to be.

Boy, Trump's really exposing the creatures of the night.

I never liked Ben Shapiro; I took an instant and instinctive dislike to him, even though the "conservative" pundits like Sean Hannity sung his praises. And how on Earth did he get a radio show? Did you ever listen to him? He's f*cking ANNOYING! But yeah, I never thought he was a nationalist/populist; I always knew, even at an instinctive level, that he's a globalist and poseur...

They're all so twee and trite now, emaciated rats scurrying for tiny scrap of attention in the back-alleys of the internet. --Oh for the days of "Crossfire" during the Reagan administration, where we could have our opinions spoon-fed to us by the likes of the "liberal" icons Tom Braden (a cabal spook who ghost-wrote comedies on the side, to be later replaced on the show by the (((unctuously faggoty))) Michael Kinsley) and the ostensible "paleoconservative" Pat Buchanan (yet another Irish Catholic trained by Washington DC Jesuits, but he's a Southern boy, donchya know, so gimme a wild rebel yell, ya mouthbreater puddingbrains) who always seemed like best pals with his co-host when the studio lights were dim.

In 1991, after a string of vote-throwing political stints, Pat would revitalize a derelict career by transforming into a professional poison-drinker. The subsequent tradcon virtue-signal ejection of Buchanan from polite society (utilizing William F. Buckley Jr. and National Review) was arguably the first major instance of orchestrated deplatforming of a manufactured troll.
