This is just weird and creepy. Why are they all posting identical language about how proud they are to work at the Washington Post, like from a script handed down by a cult leader? ImageImageImageImage
They're still doing this. More and more: all saying exactly the same thing with the exact same words, publicly professing their love for the Washington Post in identical language. This is not healthy behavior. Why are they doing this? ImageImageImageImage
I suppose this is how these WashPost reporters have decided to condemn @feliciasonmez for her 5 days of maniacal attacks on her colleagues and attempt to get several fired, but it's bizarre how they all use the same coordinated cryptic language and waited this long. Cowardly.
The Post's @feliciasonmez is now mocking all of her newsroom colleagues for using identical language to defend management against her.

May this never end! The vindictive sociopathy of these vipers on vivid display here is what prevails in all of these liberal corporate outlets. Image
The Washington Post's civil war continues. Long may it rage.🔥 ImageImage
The utterly unhinged insanity you're seeing drive this five-day Washington Post civil war is the prevailing ethos at all of these liberal corporate media outlets, most elite campuses, etc. It just usually gets contained before the public can witness it in its full derangement.

LOL. If you spend 5 years praising and rehabilitating Bill Kristol, Nicolle Wallace, David Frum, Max Boot, Jennifer Rubin, John Brennan, James Clapper and Robert Mueller, it's really not that far of a leap - in fact, it's inevitable - that you'll end up cheering Dick Cheney.👇
I'll be on Fox tonight, during the 8pm hour, discussing the liberal reaction to the Dick Cheney video, and the real reasons Dick and Liz Cheney -- like the Bush family -- despise Donald Trump (hint: it's not because they're noble patriots who cherish the rule of law).
"Congresswoman Liz Cheney is a leader of great courage, patriotism and integrity." -- House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, May 12, 2021.

Replace the phrase "just as destructive as" with "infinitely worse than" and this sentence will become accurate:
By whatever metric one uses -- civil liberties assaults, attacks on the rule of law, support for savage tyrants, sheer death and destruction -- nothing compares to what was done via bipartisan neoconservatism during the first decade of the War on Terror:

It was a widespread consensus of liberals from 2001-2008 that Dick Cheney wasn't just misguided or politically wrong, but was a tyrannical monster, a war criminal and deeply corrupt goon (Halliburton).

Do they ever ask themselves why he now harbors so much contempt for Trump?

In the article the NYT prepared for Election Day about @bgmasters to make you think he's even scarier than Trump, @SamAdlerBell uses Master's association with Curtis Yarvin. Are the views laid out here scary? Are they false? Are they even right-wing??

nytimes.com/2022/08/03/opi…
That a set of unelected, permanent power factions run DC - independent of election outcomes - was what Eisenhower warned of. Leftist foreign policy scholars long called it the Deep State. Leftist economists called it "rule by oligarchy." Liberals now cast it as scary and radical.
Also: note how fast the liberal punditocracy moved from "Trump is a once-in-a-lifetime Hitler-like danger!!" to "whichever mildly anti-establishment Republicans come after Trump are *worse than Trump*"! Much like 2003 Bush was Hitler but is now nice.

First DeSantis, now Masters.

Bernie doesn't even pretend any more to have anything resembling a left-wing foreign policy or any minimal divergence from the neocon-driven Dem Party's foreign policy dogma.

Opposing NATO expansion was long a mainstream liberal view. Now only Hawley & Paul will get near it:
Even during the Cold War, extreme militarists recognized: the most dangerous act would be driving Russia and China into a union, then declaring their united alliance the US's main enemy.

Seemingly overnight under Biden, this madness became DC consensus:

NEW: Court Rejects Google's Attempt to Dismiss Rumble's Antitrust Lawsuit, Ensuring Vast Discovery

greenwald.substack.com/p/court-reject…
An unusual and significant court ruling entitles YouTube's free speech competitor, Rumble, to obtain long-hidden internal documents on Google's search engine manipulations, as well as onerous requirements it imposes on the market to force YouTube down the throats of the public.
Rumble has experienced massive growth since mid-2020, when millions began migrating away from YouTube due to anger of Big Tech's escalating pre-election censorship. That growth has only intensified with increasing Google censorship over COVID, 1/6 and Ukraine.

Here @mtaibbi reviews the 2 films by the great documentarian Alex Lee Moyer: on "incel" subculture ("TFW No GF") and her latest, a documentary on Alex Jones ("Alex's War"). My admiration for Moyer's filmmaking is what caused me to agree to host the premiere, and I'm glad I did.👇
Separately, Taibbi interviews Moyer about her interest in outcasts (incels and Jones), and why journalists can't understand her films: because she does *journalism*, showing viewers the truth and lets them decide, rather than performatively denouncing:

taibbi.substack.com/p/im-just-goin…
In his review, Taibbi highlights a crucial point. Corporate journalists think people like Jones are isolated, while they remains omnipotent arbiters of nobility. The opposite is true: The Jones film is the #1 on Amazon, ahead of Top Gun, while liberal corporate media collapses.
