Update: Bernie Sanders is now effectively a hostage of #BlackLivesMatter. Sanders has the PC Blues. The people that went to hear Saint Bernard could not do so because of three politically correct leftist criminals. These are the wages of leftist politically correct speech codes and criminal coddling. Trump would have had them arrested. Jeb Bush and Erick Erickson would have gone the Saint Bernard PC route.
Breaking: Trump out at #RSG15. Yeah, Donald Trump is having a “binders full of women” Mitt Romney moment as the establishment right borrows PC speech codes from the establishment left to destroy anti-political establishment Donald Trump. Friday night on CNN Donald Trump attacked Mr. Chris Wallace and Megyn Kelly by stating blood was coming out of their eyes as they smeared Donald Trump during Thursday night’s debate. Now things have become twisted as they usually do when Big Media protects its own.
Those that deplore Donald Trump’s exquisite use of English can go to Hell. For too long the American People have needed a major figure to attack Big Media with the same nastiness Big Media employs. For too long the American People have needed someone to stand up and tell the unvarnished truth for everyone to hear.
Now Donald Trump is telling the truth and attacking Big Media. Instead of applause from those that decry speech codes, hate speech laws, the politically correct stranglehold that declares certain issues out of bounds, Donald Trump gets attacked. That the attacks come from alleged conservatives who have made careers decrying the leftist PC culture should infuriate freedom loving Americans.
When Donald Trump responded with verbal fists against the attacks by John McCain the accusation from the PC police was that Trump had insulted veterans. That failed to destroy Trump so the establishment tried again.
When Donald Trump defended his use of language in his years long war against Rosie O’Donnell and declared war on politically correct “tone” sentinels such as Megyn Kelly who tried a “war on women” war on Trump that failed too. So the establishment tried again.
When Donald Trump swatted blood-sucking mosquito Rand Paul at Thursday’s debate the accusation from the PC police was that Trump had insulted the hearing impaired. That failed so the establishment tried again.
Now the accusation from the PC police is that Donald Trump has attacked Megyn Kelly unfairly and in a sexist and misogynist way. It’s the “war on women” war on Trump.
Hypocrites! Vipers brood!
An hour before midnight last night the “leader” of the website and convention “Red State” informed the Donald Trump campaign that Donald Trump was “disinvited” to speak to their Red State Convention. The leader of Red State, Erick Erickson, then invited Megyn Kelly in Donald Trump’s stead.
Those of us who witnessed the sexism and misogyny against Hillary Clinton by Barack Obama in 2008 are extra angry. We don’t recall Red State denunciations when Barack Obama said this about Hillary:
“I understand that Senator Clinton periodically, when she’s feeling down, launches attacks as a way of trying to boost her appeal,” Obama said.
We don’t recall Erick Erickson clenching his vagina when Barack Obama exploited sexism and misogyny to beat Hillary Clinton. It was the rare conservative, such as Jim Geraghty, that noted the sexism and misogyny utilized by Barack Obama against Hillary Clinton in 2008:
Okay, there’s also the time Obama, after a particularly tough exchange with Hillary, told a crowd, “You challenge the status quo and suddenly the claws come out.” And, “You know, over the last several weeks since she fell behind, she’s resorted to what’s called ‘kitchen sink’ strategies. . . . She’s got the kitchen sink flying, and the china flying, and the, you know, the buffet is coming at me.” Also, “I understand that Senator Clinton, periodically when she’s feeling down, launches attacks as a way of trying to boost her appeal.” (This one is especially benign, considering he went with “periodically” instead of “every 28 days or so.”) And when Obama offered the backhanded compliment “You’re likeable enough, Hillary” in a New Hampshire debate, some women may have wondered why we never heard this kind of jab at John Edwards or Bill Richardson.
Few on the left, other than us, spoke up clearly as Sarah Palin was smeared and attacked. The sexism and misogyny against Sarah Palin should have choked Erick Erickson but he apparently survived.
Now Erick Erickson is offended by something Donald Trump said. This Erick Erickson is offended by Donald Trump:
Thinking of showing my son a picture of AJ McCarron’s girlfriend and reminding him to be a quarterback.
The latest tribune of women’s rights is this Erick Erickson:
Fox News Host Megyn Kelly Shreds Lou Dobbs And Erick Erickson Over Women In The Workplace
Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly just conducted a heated interview with colleagues Erick Erickson and Lou Dobbs over recent controversial comments the pair made about women’s roles as family “breadwinners.”
While discussing a recent study that showed 40 percent of American households with children have female breadwinners on Wednesday, Erickson called it “anti-science” for men not to play a “dominant” role in a family.
It was something to which Kelly clearly objected when she brought the pair on Friday afternoon.
“I was offended by your piece,” Kelly told Erickson, adding that she was not an “emo liberal” that Erickson subsequently called out while addressing criticism of his comments.
“Just because you have people who agree with you doesn’t mean it’s not offensive.”
Megyn Kelly appears to be strong enough not to need big ol’ Viking Erick Erickson to defend her. Looks like Erick Erickson could use someone to defend him from her. Yet Erick Erickson decided he would protect the little woman and use the favorite trick of the left to censor and silence Donald Trump with PC police terror. So this red-faced Red State pig Erick Erickson is the new hero of women?
Here’s what happened:
Donald Trump disinvited to speak at RedState event; Megyn Kelly invited
ATLANTA — Conservative commentator Erick Erickson on Friday night disinvited GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump from speaking at an activist conference he is hosting here this weekend, citing disparaging remarks Trump made hours earlier on CNN about Fox News Channel anchor Megyn Kelly. [snip]
Trump’s campaign said in a statement that Erickson’s decision was “another example of weakness through being politically correct. For all the people who were looking forward to Mr. Trump coming, we will miss you. Blame Erick Erickson, your weak and pathetic leader. We’ll now be doing another campaign stop at another location.”
Trump’s CNN interview Friday evening instantly drew controversy and criticism after he said Kelly, one of the moderators of Thursday’s Republican presidential debate in Cleveland, “had blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her wherever.” [snip]
He has also drawn criticism for saying impolitic things, once calling retired Supreme Court Justice David Souter an “[expletive] child molester” and First Lady Michelle Obama a “Marxist harpy.” He has since apologized for both comments.
Trump’s words about Kelly simply went too far, Erickson said Friday, making him, someone who enjoys and appreciates barbed political rhetoric, uncomfortable and queasy. And with his invited guest dominating the 2016 race, and few if any conservatives reining him in, Erickson thought he’d try. [snip]
I’ve gotten a lot of people e-mailing me telling me thank you. Reporters, conservatives, other politicians.
No surprise the political establishment is happy with Red State pig Erick Erickson.
But what really happened? What did Donald Trump say? Here is the full interview:
Colorful? Yeah, real colorful. You can just see the blood red as Donald Trump attacks both Chris Wallace and Megyn Kelly with the blood-out-of-eyes comment. The only clip played by the establishment tools is the section about Kelly, not the extended version with Trump saying Wallace too had blood coming out of his eyes. We suppose we’ll have to get a sound specialist to determine whether Trump said “her, whatever” or “her, wherever.” Whatever.
It does not explain the Red State disinvitation nor the invitation to Megyn Kelly. Is Megyn Kelly running for president? Kelly, Wallace and Baier, were all attacked as unfair by Donald Trump. We’re sure they don’t like the attacks. But they deserve the attacks especially since they had more speaking time than any individual candidate at the debate.
Remember that guy we wrote about at HotAir who swore he would never vote for Donald Trump, that Donald Trump was dead to him because of what he said about John McCain? The same guy that a few days later wrote he would vote for Trump in the general election and that he has been wrong about Trump every single time? That guy has a different take on the Red State controversy. Trump out at RSG15: another view
Everything he does is outside the normal political process. The man has taken the rule book, set it on fire and dumped the ashes on the heads of everyone else. And what seems to be driving everyone in the politico class to drink is that he still manages to stay on top. This is perhaps the reminder we all needed. There was a time when the rise of blogs was attributed to the fact that so many Americans were sick of seeing a handful of network news stars acting as the gatekeepers of how the election game should be played. Social media and citizen journalists came in like barbarians at the gates and threw down the old order. But now we’ve been doing it for so long that new media outlets such as Salem Media Group properties like RedState and Hot Air are hosting major political events like RSG and even getting in on moderating debates. (Hugh Hewitt is also part of the Salem network and will take on those duties later in the campaign cycle.)
The point is that, having reached these dizzying heights (if you find them to be such), have we begun to assume the role of the previous gatekeepers, feeling that we can define what the boundaries of acceptable behavior are? [snip]
In the end it is the public who makes the final call, and if they decide that what Trump is doing is good enough for them to keep him as their standard bearer, we were the ones who got it wrong. [snip]
[DISCLOSURE: I’d thought this would go without saying, but for new visitors it is probably worth noting that Hot Air and RedState are properties of Salem Media Group, as are Townhall, Twitchy, Bearing Arms, Human Events, and numerous other print, radio and sundry media outlets.]
Old gatekeepers, meet the new gatekeepers. Leftist PC police meet your auxiliary force the Right-wing PC police following leftist PC laws. All the forces of the establishment are armed and ready to make Donald Trump bleed for what comes out of his mouth in front of national television cameras.
Resist we must. From the left or from the right, we will resist the speech police and the censorship of politically correct control of free speech and a free people. The bullsh*t establishment “conservatives” who decry the tyranny of the establishment left want to impose the tyranny of the right using the same techniques and politically correct speech codes concocted by the left.
Although Red State uses leftist PC police law Red State is not “blue.” Red State is yellow.
