Fascismo Trump Shill Whines To Fox News About the ‘Erosion of Freedom’

The foremost personality trait of right-wing politcos is their unreserved devotion to shameless hypocrisy. They will start a sentence and manage to contradict themselves before they reach the period. It’s a skill that requires practice and commitment, but then what else do they have to do? It’s not like they ever do research or fact-checking.

Fox News, Stephen Miller

On Sunday morning’s episode of Maria Bartiromo’s Fox News Trump-Fluffing Hour, the host welcomed longtime Donald Trump mouthpiece and Senior White Nationalist Advisor, Stephen Miller. Like his führer, Miller still hasn’t figured out that he lost the election. And like so many other whiny conservatives, he believes that he’s a victim of a massive, invisible, liberal cabal that is suppressing him and censoring his speech. They generally make this complaint while on one of the most watched cable news networks or in the pages of national newspapers.

Despite Miller’s acute hatred for Democrats in general, and President Joe Biden in particular, he had the gall to offer Biden some typically self-serving and utterly useless advice (video below):

“President Biden has missed an historic opportunity to make good on his pledge to be a president for all Americans and to stand up and say the censorship must stop. The blacklisting must stop. We have to listen to and respect all viewpoints in America. But he has not done that.”

Never mind that even though Biden has only been in office for eleven days, he has repeatedly reached out to Republicans who snubbed him and continue to deny that he’s really president. And if Biden hasn’t called for an end to Republican censorship, it might be because he isn’t suffering from the delusions of victimhood that the Trump cultists are consumed by.

What’s more, Miller’s insistence that “We have to listen to and respect all viewpoints in America,” could not be more ridiculous. We most assuredly do not have to respect the opinions of QAnon crackpots who claim that Democrats are sex-trafficking baby-eaters. We do not – must not – respect the opinions of GOP cranks like Marjorie Taylor Greene, who believes that the mass murders of children were staged. And no sane person should respect the opinions of Rudy Giuliani, who blames the Trump Insurrection on Antifa. And we must never show respect for Fox News seditionists like Tucker Carlson who are openly advocating for a violent civil war.

But Miller wasn’t through whining yet (video below). Miller, who is best known for his affinity for the Third Reich, was compelled to deliver a lecture on “freedom” to Biden and the Democrats. “Freedom is a way of being,” he blurted out as if he were proud of his insightfulness. Then he elaborated…

“If we as Americans get to the point where we’re willing to discriminate against people based on their point of view, being whether they’re Republican or Democrat, conservative or liberal, we have fundamentally abandoned our core values. And you’re right, it’s gonna lead to we’re not gonna bank with you; we’re not gonna give you a mortgage; we’re not gonna lease you a car; we’re not gonna represent you in a court of law.

Miller might have extended that to say “We’re no not gonna bake you a wedding cake; we’re not not gonna rent you an apartment; we’re not gonna admit you to college.” But, of course, those are all things that he wants to prohibit people who don’t look like him from doing. His hypocrisy is like an avalanche barreling down the side of Bigotry Mountain. And Bartiromo just sits there and gawks at him adoringly. This is what it’s come to. The oppressors are complaining about being oppressed on their national television networks. Poor things. Don’t ya feel so sorry them?

HUH? Trump Chump Stephen Miller Tells Fox News He’s Forming a Slate of ‘Alternative Electors’

Donald Trump exhausted his last best hope to steal the election last week. The Supreme Court, that he thought he had stacked with servile flunkies, unanimously ruled against his lawsuit aiming to throw out millions of votes from states that Joe Biden had won decisively. That was after having already lost more than fifty court cases. And yet, Trump still whines that he was “never even given our day in court.”

Be sure to visit and follow News Corpse on Instagram.

Donald Trump, Constitution

Of course, Trump was given fifty days in court, where he failed to produce any evidence to support his election fraud claims. It’s been clear all along that the only court that Trump cared about was the court of public opinion where he could lie without the risk of committing perjury.

Continuing that campaign of disinformation, Trump got up early Monday morning to dispatch his Propaganda Advance Team. Their Senior White Nationalist Advisor, Stephen Miller, appeared on Fox News to deliver the administration’s sermon on anti-democratic election theft. And Miller’s presentation to the “Curvy Couch” potatoes of Fox and Friends was every thing you would expect:

“The only date in the Constitution is January 20, so we have more than enough time to right the wrong of this fraudulent election and certify Donald Trump as the winner of the election. As we speak, an alternate slate of electors in the contested states is going to vote and we are going to send those results to Congress. This will insure that all of our legal remedies remain open. That means that if we win these cases in the courts, that we can direct the alternate slate of electors to be certified.”

Miller asserted that upon completion of their ludicrous machinations “Donald Trump is the winner of this election.” He further claimed that he had “hundreds of violations that we’re documented.” He did not, however, explain why none of those allegedly documented violations were presented in court despite fifty opportunities to do so.

For regular observers of Trump’s Circus of Deceit, Miller’s buzzwords may sound familiar. His “alternative electors” must come from the same warped imagination as Kellyanne Conway’s “alternative facts.” And his distortion of the Constitution’s provisions for a democratic transfer of power ignore the laws associated with certifying the electoral votes (by December 8), the official casting of votes by the electoral college (on December 14), and Congress formalizing the outcome on January 6. January 20 is the day that the already certified president-elect is inaugurated and sworn in to office.

Miller’s contention that his alternate slate of electors can be sent to Congress and certified as legitimate is a fantasy that does not exist anywhere in the law. He is merely perpetuating the fraud that Trump has been blathering about for more than a month in his attempt to delude his dimwitted cult disciples – and probably himself – into believing that he still has a chance of serving another four years in the White House. He doesn’t!

More troubling is his flagrant lies that have the potential to incite violent responses to what Trump characterizes as an election that was “RIGGED,” and a presidency that was “STOLEN.” In fact, that’s precisely the response he’s seeking with inflammatory language that is an explicit call to “escalate dramatically” the opposition to American democratic principles.

To CNN’s Jake Tapper: You HAVE Wasted Enough of Your Viewers’ Time, So Stop Doing It

On Sunday morning’s episode of CNN’s State of the Union, there was a remarkable interview by Jake Tapper. His guest was Donald Trump’s senior advisor for policy, and thirty-two year old man still stuck in a temper tantrum he began as a five year old, Stephen Miller. The segment (video below) was a train wreck due to Miller’s relentless interruptions and shameless Trump-fluffing.

CNN Stephen Miller

Tapper took a fair amount of abuse from Miller who accused him of being condescending, snide, and joyful for opportunities to “stick the knife in.” These personal insults were designed to evade the actual questions that Tapper asked. For instance, Tapper inquired twice whether Trump met with the people that attended Don Jr.’s meeting with Russians at Trump Tower, as Steve Bannon said. In the course of Miller’s evasion, he never denied that Trump met with those Russians.

The majority of the interview consisted of Miller fawning over his boss. He described Trump as a political genius who “took down the Bush dynasty, took down the Clinton dynasty, took down the entire media complex.” Miller’s adoration of Trump was all-consuming and more than a little nauseating. He refused to allow a question to interrupt his arrogant filibustering. Which led to Tapper reclaiming control of his show and muzzling Trump’s unhinged attack dog:

“Okay, you’re not answering the questions, I get it. There’s one viewer that you care about right now and you’re being obsequious, you’re being a factotum in order to please him. And I think I’ve wasted enough of my viewers’ time.”

With that, Tapper went to a commercial. This was exactly how a journalist with integrity should behave under these circumstances. It’s one thing to assure that all sides have an opportunity to be heard, but it’s something else to permit a political shill to hijack a news program for the purpose of force-feeding propaganda to the audience. If an interview subject is more interested in spewing talking points than honestly answering questions, then the interview should be terminated. One measure of Tapper’s correctness is the rage-soaked and delusional response he got shortly after from Trump:

While Tapper did exactly the right thing in this instance, he and most other TV reporters too often let themselves be exploited by partisan mouthpieces. It’s a game that Trump has benefited from since his first day as a presidential candidate. Every news network routinely broadcast his rallies in their entirety, despite the fact that they rarely contained anything that was newsworthy. And as President, Trump has dispatched surrogates like Kellyanne Conway and Sarah Huckabee Sanders who view their jobs as being willing to lie without restraint in the service of Trump’s ego.

The media needs to reevaluate its relationship to this presidency. There has never been an administration that was so openly hostile to the press. Nor, ironically, one that so flagrantly exploits the press to deceive the public and advance such a brazenly dishonest agenda. Trump loves to bash the media that he relies on to disseminate his hatred for it. And there is no reason that the media should tolerate that.

The press needs to cut off right-wing trolls more often, and refuse to host those who repeatedly lie. They have to stop hiring bootlickers (like CNN’s Jason Miller and Jack Kingston), who add little substance to any debate and are as predictable as the sunrise. The media must recommit itself to its core mission of informing the public and exposing the truth. Hosting people like Stephen Miller does not advance that goal. CNN isn’t helping itself or the country by hosting pathological liars. That’s what Fox News is for.

WATCH: Assaulting a CNN Reporter is Hilarious to Tucker Carlson of Fox News

On Wednesday the White House press briefing briefly turned into rhetorical warfare. Donald Trump’s senior advisor, Stephen Miller, went ballistic on CNN reporter Jim Acosta. The issue was Trump’s latest xenophobic position on immigration reform. Acosta, the son of Cuban immigrants, asked if Trump’s policy amounted to “trying to engineer the racial and ethnic flow of people into this country.” Miller appeared to take the question personally. He lashed out at Acosta, calling him “outrageous, insulting, ignorant and foolish.”

Fox News Tucker Carlson

Miller’s juvenile response typifies the emotional immaturity of the Trump administration. We should probably be grateful that Miller didn’t hurl profanities or feces. But the worst reaction to this exchange came from Fox News on the program hosted by proud Trump Fluffer, Tucker Carlson. Carlson’s guest was right-wing crackpot Mark Steyn, who unleashed a tirade of vitriol and bile (video below). He said that:

“One of the reasons we need immigrants to come here and do the jobs Americans won’t do is because one of the jobs Americans won’t do is drag Jim Acosta out of there, kick him to the sidewalk, and say ‘If you wanna do the Jim Acosta Show there’s a rusting boxcar round the back of the freight yards with three semi-comatose hobos who are interested in it. But nobody else here is.'”

So Steyn ignored everything that Acosta said and dismissed all of the substance of the debate. However, he did propose physically assaulting Acosta and denying him the free press rights guaranteed in the Constitution. The notion of violently attacking a journalist struck Carlson as hilarious. He repeatedly laughed at the thought of a beaten reporter being kicked out of a press briefing. This is what tickles the pro-Trump media during an era in which even the President has encouraged violence against reporters. Trump famously denigrated the media as the enemy of the American people.”

Steyn went on to adopt a view of the Statue of Liberty that has been a staple of white supremacists for years. He said that:

“The French gave the Americans a pretty great Statue of Liberty. And then the Americans hammered a lousy poem by Emma Lazerus onto it and turned a pretty great Statue of Liberty into a Statue of Immigration. I regret that.”

Steyn is joining the Hate America First crowd by insulting the contributions of a poet whose “lousy” work was used to finance the pedestal of the Statue. But he is also echoing the White House. Miller made a similarly belittling comment at the press briefing, saying that:

“The Statue of Liberty is a symbol of liberty and light in the world. It’s a symbol of American liberty lighting the world. The poem that you’re referring to that was added later is not actually part of the original Statue of Liberty.”

And both of those comments reflect the abhorrent views of avowed white supremacist Richard Spencer:

For the record, the poem “The New Colossus” by Emma Lazarus made a simple plea of compassion and acceptance:

“Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free. The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me. I lift my lamp beside the golden door.”

Notice that there is nothing in there about skilled labor, education, preferred language, or personal wealth. It is plainly reaching a hand out to people in need. It’s a standard based on the necessity of the immigrant rather than the greed of the host nation. Unfortunately, the only standard recognized by Fox News and Tucker Carlson is personal self-interest and unfettered political power. And if that means committing assaults against journalists with whom you disagree, well that’s just hysterical, isn’t it?
