This past week we all got yet another series of examples of how the media establishment and the left’s outrage factory never seem overly worried when liberals advocate for the death of conservatives, but then they go apoplectic when any conservative gets into such “violent rhetoric.”
Last week we had two prominent liberals seen celebrating the idea that conservatives should be killed or somehow harmed, and a second pair of incidents where conservatives elbowed the left in a similar manner, but only the two conservatives were attacked and their livelihood threatened.
In one case, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey complimented and shared an article that called for the end of bipartisanship and the initiation of a civil war between Democrats and conservatives during which conservatives should all be destroyed.
On Thursday, April 5, Dorsey tweeted “great read” to an article posted to the website Medium by fascist liberal Peter Leyden who said that “there’s no bipartisan way forward” in America and that liberalism “must win.” He also characterized his goal as another “American Civil War.”

Incredibly, fascist Leyden proclaimed that the bankrupt and bleeding state of California is proof that single party rule (by that he means only Democrats) is the way to fix everything wrong with the nation.
This is one of the most idiotic proclamations written so far this year.
California, despite its mass wealth inequality, growing lack of social cohesion, poverty, and soaring housing costs “provides a model for America as a whole,” according to Leyden and Teixeira. Interestingly enough, they claimed the state’s economy is booming, although arguably not for long. They also oddly claimed the state is running on surpluses without acknowledging its debt crisis.
So, Leyden wants conservatives killed in a new “American Civil War.” And Twitter’s chief, Jack Dorsey thinks that is “great.”
But, understand what this means. This means that Jack Dorsey, a man who is programing and leading a social media company that is supposed to be based on “free speech,” is advocating for and actively working to institute the silencing of everyone with whom he disagrees.
Now, if Dorsey was a conservative and was leading one of the largest social media companies in the world, the left would be braying like stuck pigs over the threat they would (rightly) see to their free speech.
But as it is… we got crickets over Dorsey’s tweet. No one in the left-wing media called for his ouster from Twitter, no one sent him a death threat, and no one cried about the obvious threat to our freedoms.
The second act came from David Crosby, the senile, left-wing, hippy-dippy, drug addled rocker from the 60s band Crosby, Still, and Nash.
On Saturday, Crosby took to his Twitter account and tweeted “Burn, baby, burn” in response to a fire that occurred at Trump Tower in New York City. The fire, which occurred on Saturday morning, left one man dead and several firefighters injured.
The blaze had absolutely nothing at all to do with politics nor did the victim have anything to do with Donald Trump. But there was the aged rocker happily tweeting out his glee over an incident that resulted in a man’s death.
Crosby has attacked right of center Americans before. Not long ago he proudly announced that he doesn’t want non-liberals to come to his concerts or listen to his music. He has many times said he “doesn’t need them” in his life. His hate is highly venomous.
Cosby soon deleted the tweet, but it doesn’t matter because he also did not apologize for posting it.
Now, again, imagine if a prominent conservative had tweeted out his glee at the death of a man who lived in a building owned by, say, Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama. The left media would still be engaged in a lynching party of such a person. But today, it is once again crickets in the old media establishment over Crosby’s hateful tweet.
Now contrast that with the one incident from last week that we are already all familiar with and that is the media lynching of Fox News host Laura Ingraham.
I won’t revisit her case in its entirety, but the short of it is that Ingraham made a very mild joke about anti-gun Parkland student David Hogg. Hogg retaliated for this mild swipe by calling for Ingrham’s advertisers to quit her show. The left piled on in a huge way and in only a few days Ingraham lost a dozen major sponsors. Only ONE publicly stood by her side.
The upshot of this incident is that Laura Ingraham made an innocuous joke about the anti-gun punk and the left went into overtime to utterly destroy Laura Ingraham.
A mild joke led to the left trying to destroy her. No free speech for Laura!
The second case was the firing of purportedly conservative commentator Kevin D. Williamson.
Now, before we go any farther, I am not a fan of Williamson in any way whatever. He is shrill, offhanded, and doesn’t seem to have any coherent ideology. But, he is an anti-Trumper and worked for a nominally conservative magazine (it was National Review). That is why the left-wing magazine The Atlantic, hired him away from his former employer. The Atlantic was thrilled to have a rabid Trump hater who can attack from the right whereas all its other employees are typical, extreme liberals.
But then the fascist, left-wing outrage factory geared up to destroy Williamson before he even got started at the liberal magazine.
Once Williamson was hired, liberals began to comb through his years of tweets to find something — ANYTHING — they could use as a weapon against him. Eventually they found several tweets where the writer said that women who commit abortion should be treated as murderers. He feels abortion is almost always wrong and it should be thought of as the murder of an unborn baby.
Apparently, in at least one tweet, Williamson said that women who get an abortion should be brought up on charges and if convicted should be put to death in keeping with any particular state’s laws on corporal punishment.
However, Williamson also noted that he almost always opposes the death penalty, so in essence he wasn’t personally agreeing that women who have abortions should face the death penalty, but he still thinks that abortion is murder.
There are a lot of subtleties to his argument and he fully admitted he was trying to be provocative with his argument, but none of these facts — or the truth — mattered to the left. Liberals used this tenuous series of tweets to destroy Williamson.
Seemingly only hours later, Jeffrey Goldberg, the editor of The Atlantic, turned around and fired Williamson only days after hiring him and claiming he was a perfect fit for the liberal rag.
Without a doubt, if Williamson was a liberal hired by a conservative magazine, but some conservatives found some distasteful tweets he had made… well, the truth is, nothing would have happened. In that case Williamson would still be happily pecking away at his keyboard to force his anti-Trump screeds on his audience.
So, what we have here are four perfect examples of how the hypocrite left needs to be destroyed, not coddled and treated like a legitimate ideology.
