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.

Dallas Jenkins is a storyteller — and he's telling the most important story of all time in a way that many believed was impossible.

Jenkins is the creator of "The Chosen," a free, crowdfunded series about the life of Jesus that rivals Hollywood productions. And Season 2 could not have arrived at a better time — on Easter weekend 2021. Church attendance has dropped, people are hungry for something bigger than all of us, and many are choosing social justice activism, political parties, or even the climate change movement as "religions" over God.

This Easter weekend, Jenkins joined Glenn on the "Glenn Beck Podcast" to discuss the aspects of Jesus that often get overlooked and break through the misconceptions about who Jesus really is to paint a clear picture of why America needs Emmanuel, "God with us," now more than ever.

Award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program this week to argue the Biden administration's border crisis is "enabling" drug cartels, allowing them to exploit migrants, use border wall construction roads, and cross the border much more easily.

Lara, who has witnessed and experienced firsthand some of the worst violence around the world as a war correspondent for CBS News, told Glenn it's "not an overstatement" to call the cartels in Mexico "the most violent and powerful criminal organizations on the face of the earth." And while they're "at war with us, we've been asleep at the wheel."

But Lara also offers solutions that the U.S. can enact to stop these horrific atrocities.

"There's more than 30,000 Mexican civilians who are massacred every year in Mexico by the cartels. And that's just the bodies that the Mexican government owns up to or knows about, right?" Lara said. "There's Mexicans buried in unmarked mass graves all across the country. I mean, everyone knows that the violence of the cartels is not like anything anyone has ever seen before. It even pales in comparison to, at times, to what terrorist groups like ISIS have done."

Lara went on to explain some of the unspeakable acts of violence and murder that occur at the hands of the Mexican cartels — 98% of which go uninvestigated.

"That's not unprosecuted, Glenn. That's uninvestigated," Lara emphasized. "[Cartels] operate with impunity. So the law enforcement guy, the policemen, the marine, the National Guardsmen, who are trying to do the right thing, who are not in the pocket of the cartels — what chance do those guys have? They've got no chance. You know where they end up? In one of those unmarked graves."

Have you noticed an insane number of companies "going woke" lately? There's a big reason for why this is happening NOW, and it's not just virtue-signaling. Big corporations, one by one, are pulling the trigger on an initiative that has been in the works for about a decade.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes the framework that was built and inserted into business schools all across the countries. Critical race theory, gender, and "social justice" were given a higher priority than just doing good business.

Glenn has the documents that reveal what's coming to YOUR business or the company you work for and what will happen to companies that don't comply. And what started out as an indoctrination at the university level is now being taught in public schools K-12. They're teaching our kids to be equity activists right under our noses, and the indoctrination is working.

First, President Joe Biden nixed the Keystone XL Pipeline, driving the price at the pump through the roof. Now, Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg has floated the idea of taxing every mile you drive as a way to pay for Biden's massive infrastructure spending proposal. So much for buying an electric car to save money at the pump. It's almost as if they want you to feel the coming pain as deeply as possible.
