The Washington Post which has served as the nexus of anti-Trump propaganda has just rolled out a brand-new slogan that will serve as the rallying cry for the ongoing witch hunt against the democratically elected President of the United States.
In a bid to meld its comic book quality coverage and raving editorial diatribes with the ominous theme of a Batman movie the WAPO proudly presents:
DEMOCRACY DIES IN DARKNESS!!!

The motto is reportedly a favorite of the bloated, power suckling zombie that used to be Bob Woodward.
Billionaire WAPO owner and venomous Trump adversary Jeff Bezos reportedly took a liking to it given his paper’s flair for the dramatic as a cheap way to put a new gloss on their tired horseshit.
Conservative blog Hot Air smacks it into the upper deck by connecting with a 101-mph fastball of truth:
Turns out this purplish prose is a favorite saying of Post editor Bob Woodward, who’s been using it to celebrate the media clergy for years. Post owner Jeff Bezos picked it up somewhere along the line and started using the phrase himself. Only now, though, a month into Trump’s administration, did the paper see fit to put it beneath its masthead as a sort of mission statement. The timing gives the slogan the same effect as that dopey NBC News story from a few days ago noting that Trump would not, in fact, become the shortest-serving president in American history. It’s a declaration of opposition to the new administration. If it wasn’t, they would have slapped it on the front page back when Barack Obama, a.k.a. “the greatest enemy of press freedom that we have encountered in at least a generation,” started snooping in journalists’ phone records.
Indeed. The WAPO was MIA when Barry was using near century old espionage laws to wage a war on journalists but that is the point when it comes to neocon-infested propaganda mill which serves as a guardian of America’s putrid political elite.
With a renewed sense of mission I guess that we can probably expect more WAPO whoppers like that discredited blacklist of 200 independent media sites accused of being in bed with Putin or the fiction of the Russians hacking Vermont’s power grid.
Both of those lurid fairy tales ended up with an editor’s addendum as did the latest screaming scoop about the CIA agent who quit out of protest against Trump. The WAPO neglected to include the very pertinent fact that the guy was a Hillary Clinton donor – you would think that details like this would be caught before they become an embarrassment.
It’s also more than a bit ironic that a fish wrap which has spared no effort to overturn the election of a democratically elected president is now marketing itself as a guardian of democracy.
But wait, it gets better….
Pravda on the Potomac is ushering in its new era by adding longtime Democrat party slime demon and former Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta as a regular contributor.
The Hill reports “Washington Post hires John Podesta as columnist”:
John Podesta, Hillary Clinton’s former presidential campaign chairman, has joined The Washington Post as a contributing columnist, according to a Thursday announcement by the paper.
“No one knows more about how Washington works, how the White House operates, and how policy ideas are translated into reality than John Podesta,” said the Post’s editorial page editor, Fred Hiatt, in a statement.
“His long experience in Congress, inside two Democratic White Houses and on the front lines of numerous presidential campaigns, will offer readers vital insight into Washington and politics at the start of a new era.”
Podesta had recently written two op-eds for the Post slamming the Trump administration on Russia and the president’s war with the media.
The 68-year-old Chicago native served as chief of staff to President Bill Clinton and was a counselor to President Obama.

Indeed, Podesta knows the inner workings of the D.C. shit bog – those 50,000 + WikiLeaks emails are a testament to that.
He will make a fine addition to the fake news peddling, poison pen wielding Trump haters already on the payroll at the War And Propaganda Orifice.
Seriously, you just can’t make stuff like this up.
