The 'Atlantic' just caved to Media Matters in Kevin Williamson firing

Why does David Brock and Media Matters STILL have any kind of sway in the media anymore? If you don’t know, Media Matters is a liberal hit-squad that scours the internet, TV, newspapers and public speeches to find anything they can from conservative voices, with the specific intent of taking them out of context.

Their entire goal is to silence dissenting voices and opinion, but I’m finding it hard --- in this day and age --- to understand their relevance. First of all their leader, David Brock, only started his crusade to defend and shill for Hillary Clinton, but she’s not relevant anymore. Politically, she doesn’t even exist. So why are they still around?

And second, this isn’t 10 years ago. People have the ability to do their own fact-checking. There’s more variety on the internet for news and information than ever before. So why is the media still so scared of them?

The Atlantic was the latest to give in to Media Matters’ pressure with the firing of Kevin Williamson. Sure the Atlantic is a liberal publication, but at least they were intellectuals. For years, the Atlantic had been LESS mudslinging and MORE intellectual conversation that you probably disagreed with, but you could AT LEAST consider.

So the kings of thought crime went to work.

After Trump became president, that all but stopped. When the Atlantic hired conservative columnist Kevin Williamson a few weeks ago, this was apparently too much for David Brock and Media Matters to bear. They couldn’t just stand aside and allow a popular conservative voice at an established liberal media publication. That would be a disaster. So the kings of thought crime went to work.

Three days ago, Media Matters began releasing hit pieces to damage Williamson’s image. They dug out a comment from a podcast and a corresponding tweet that he made FOUR YEARS AGO. Williamson suggested that women who commit abortions should be subject to capital punishment.

On the surface, that definitely sounds like a shock comment, but later in the podcast, he makes it clear that he doesn’t like capital punishment. So his intention seemed pretty obvious that Williamson was trying to make a point showing the moral similarity between abortion and murder.

That RIGHT THERE is exactly the kind of deep critical thinking that you’d expect to find at the Atlantic. And actually, they must have agreed because they hired Williamson away from the National Review, knowing full well that he made these comments back in 2014.

Someone wrote a book about this before. It’s called 1984.

This wasn’t a secret. 99 percent of the staff at the Atlantic probably disagree with Williamson in general, but that would have made for some solid --- point vs counterpoint --- reading. But Media Matters couldn’t take it. Why the Atlantic is so concerned with what some outdated and washed up liberal hit-squad cares about is beyond me.

When will this stop? When there’s only one point of view and no debate ON ANYTHING? If you believe someone is wrong, you have a conversation with them, but we don’t do that anymore. Opposing views are SILENCED, and those who voice them are PULVERIZED.

Someone wrote a book about this before. It’s called 1984. Welcome to the state of the mainstream media today.

POLL: What did YOU think about the 2nd GOP presidential debate?

Wednesday was a big night for the Republican presidential candidates during the second GOP debate... OR WAS IT?

Glenn wasn't impressed with the debate. In fact, he went as far as to say it was the worst Presidential debate BY FAR he had ever seen for THIS reason: NO ONE discussed the major issues that Americans are actually facing.

Inflation has doubled Americans' grocery bills. Gas is nearing a historic record of $100/barrel. We have DOUBLED our national deficit. Bidenomics and the globalists' green agenda pose an existential threat to core American industries while we continue to fund the Ukrainian people's pensions and small businesses. It is as if our government has forgotten the American people.

A recent spike in COVID cases has triggered the left's alarm bells, and the following institutions have begun to reinstate COVID-era mandates. You might want to avoid them if you enjoy breathing freely...

There was a time when both the Left and the Right agreed that parents have the final say in raising their children... Not anymore.

In the People's Republic of California, the STATE, not parents, will determine whether children should undergo transgender treatments. The California state legislature just passed a law that will require judges in child custody cases to consider whether parents support a child’s gender transition. According to the law, the state now thinks total affirmation is an integral part of a child’s “health, safety, and welfare.”

We are inching closer to a dystopia where the state, not the parents, have ultimate rights over their children, a history that people from former Soviet nations would feign repeating.

The Biden admin has let in MORE illegal aliens than the populations of THESE 15 states

There are currently an estimated 16.8 MILLION illegal aliens residing in the United States as of June 2023, according to the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR). This number is already 1.3 million higher than FAIR's January 2022 estimate of 15.5 million and a 2.3 million increase from its end-of-2020 estimate. Even Democrats like New York City's Mayor Adams Mayor Adams are waking up to what Conservatives have been warning for years: we are in a border CRISIS.

However, this isn't the same border crisis that Republicans were warning about back in 2010. In the first two years of the Biden administration alone, the illegal alien population increased by 16 PERCENT nationwide, imposing a whopping net cost of $150.6 BILLION PER YEAR on American taxpayers. That is nearly DOUBLE the total amount that the Biden administration has sent to Ukraine.

This isn't the same border crisis that Republicans were warning about back in 2010.

These large numbers often make it difficult to conceptualize the sheer impact of illegal immigration on the United States. To put it in perspective, we have listed ALL 15 states and the District of Colombia that have smaller populations than the 2.3 MILLION illegal immigrants, who have entered the U.S. under the Biden administration. That is more than the entire populations of Wyoming, Vermont, and South Dakota COMBINED—and the American taxpayers have to pay the price.

Here are all 16 states/districts that have FEWER people than the illegal immigrants who have entered the U.S. under the Biden administration.

1. New Mexico

Population: 2,110,011

2. Idaho

Population: 1,973,752
