Media Complicity in Democrat Threats  

We have to keep the foot right on [Trump’s] neck, take our heel, and twist it.  I would tell the president [Biden] and his campaign just, we got your back, dude.  We are going after him with a meat cleaver, okay? A rhetorical meat cleaver, … but that’s what we’re going to do”  

Democrat strategist James Carville to Democrat Jen Psaki on MSNBC, Jan. 30, 2024

They asked me would I like to debate [Trump], and I said … ‘If we were in high school, I’d take him behind the gym and beat the hell out of him,’” getting laughter and applause from crowd at University of Miami.

Joe Biden, CNN, March 21, 2018

One of the storylines the Democrat “News”-media Colluders (hereafter the DNC) has fabricated to manipulate the voters and “win” elections is that Donald Trump employs dangerously provocative violent rhetoric.    However, it only makes sense to make this kind of charge against Trump if the DNC is not equally at fault or worse in this same way.

Consider the DNC’s claim that Trump’s rhetoric provoked the crowd at the Capitol on Jan. 6th, 2021 to engage in an “insurrection” against the United States.  In fact, as longtime liberal activist and feminist Naomi Wolf points out, the DNC somehow managed not to inform the peasants that Trump told the crowd on Jan. 6th to assemble “peacefully and patriotically to make their voices heard” but that this had for some mysterious reason been deleted from the news coverage she saw!  One might get the idea that the DNC is trying to construct a fake narrative to keep themselves in money and power. 

It is true that Trump often makes people cringe by saying things he ought not say.  But it is also true that he did not say many of the worst things the DNC accuses him of saying.  If one can read at the 7th grade level one can easily verify that he never said he grabs women by the p***y.  He said “stars” do that.  The reason many people think he said that is that the Democrats and their poodles in what remains of our “news” media keep repeating this false claim.  The same is true for the DNC’s claims that he told people to inject bleach to cure the coronavirus, that he called all Mexicans rapists and drug traffickers, that he derided people from “s**thole” countries like Africa and Haiti, that he said he wants to be a dictator of re-elected, that he used Hitlerian language that immigrants poison the blood of Americans and so on and on.  Why can’t the DNC criticize Trump without distorting what he said?  

Further, Trump never said he would take someone behind the gym and “beat the hell out of them.”  He never said, as only a literally sick person would, that he would put his foot on someone’s neck, twist it, and never let them up.   He never said, as only a literally sadistic person would, that he would take a “meat cleaver” to one of his political enemies.  One can imagine the state of mouth-frothing hysteria in the DNC if Trump ever said he would twist his heel on someone’s neck or come after a political opponent with a meat cleaver!

And despite the DNC’s feigned respect for women, Carville called Paula Jones, who has accused his beloved Bill Clinton of sexual harassment, “trailer trash”.  Carville also said that “if one drags a $100 bill through a trailer park you never know what you’ll find.”  It seems like Carville respects poor people as little as respects Paula Jones.  Doesn’t the Democrat Party like to promote the impression that they are the Party of the poor?

Carville also displayed his grasp on reality by claiming that Christian politicians are more dangerous than al-Qaeda.  His Angst is occasioned by the election of Michael Johnson (R-LA) as Speaker of the House.  Carville does not, of course, present any evidence whatsoever that Johnson is dangerous but, being from the same state and, having a great sense of entitlement, only says, “I know these people.”  That’s called the fallacy of Irrelevant Authority.  Surprisingly, however, Mike Johnson has not flown any airplanes into buildings killing 3000 people.  So, what makes Mike Johnson so dangerous?  In September 2016, Johnson summarized his legal career as “defending religious freedom, the sanctity of human life, and biblical values, including the defence of traditional marriage, and other ideals like these when they’ve been under assault.”  Apparently, Baptists walking around quoting Jesus’ saying, “Love they neighbour as thyself” terrifies Carville.  Satan didn’t like it much either. 

Conservatives, who actually understand the Constitution, grant Carvelle’s Party the right to oppose Johnson’s views.  Unfortunately, Carville’s Party does not accord the same right to conservatives.  In 2020, what remains of the Washington Post published a story that depicted Johnson and other Republicans as “subhuman vermin” beside pictures of rats.  By the Democrat’s own “logic,” doesn’t that make the Washington Post a Hitlerian organization?   In fact, Carville’s Democrats, who, like fascists, cannot tolerate dissent, are the obvious genuine threat to American democracy.   It turns out that Republicans like Johnson are “dangerous” because they disagree with Democrats who must have everything their way.  It’s called “totalitarianism” because it requires total control of everything.   For Democrats, someone is “dangerous” because one disagrees with Democrats.  That is no longer allowed.

Even though Carville regularly spouts such vile totalitarian smears he is a regular honoured guest on the media, on Jim Acosta’s show, with Kaitlan Collins and Abby Phillip, with Bill Maher and Laura Coates, with Jonathan Karl, with Chuck Todd on Meet the Press, with Vox, etc.  Similarly, Rick Wilson, who now works with the Democrats, once said in 2022  that someone needs to “put a bullet in Trump”.  The response from the media was crickets.  Yet Wilson is still invited on MSNBC in 2023, the Katie Phang show in 2023, on PBS in 2022, on The Guardian across the pond in 2023, on DW (Germany) in 2023, etc.  Further, Wikipedia, which actually represents itself as an encyclopaedia, somehow manages not to mention Wilson’s remark about putting a bullet in Trump in its article on Wilson. 

After Biden’s SOTU speech (actually a hateful campaign speech), in which he yelled at Americans for an hour, MSNBC’s Nicole Wallace, who used to pretend to be a Republican, said Biden’s speech was “a punch in the face to every Republican in the room”.  Lovely aren’t they!  Despite the fact that the FBI has said the Jan. 6 Capitol Riot was not an insurrection, and that Trump told his supporters to protest “peacefully”, the so-called “news media” continues to paint him as a violent insurrectionist.   At the same time, explicitly vile violent rhetoric and actions from the Democrat side of the aisle is ignored or downplayed.  “News” media propagandists giggle while they themselves make or celebrate violent Democrat remarks.  In fact, the violent rhetoric from the DNC is far worse than anything said by Trump. That is why the DNC always has to change what Trump says to construct their fake narrative … and it is tearing the country apart: Not that any of them care.

  1. The dems don’t seem to realize what they are doing. They sputter and stutter and spit out lies and make it sound so juicy that even judges in the state supreme courts have begun to believe the lies. There is no break for President Trump. None. But the dems still manage to pull the wool over millions of Americans with the stories they make up and then pat themselves on the back for tying up President Trump in courts without allowing him the defense he’s entitled to. Time for the Dems to have THOSE shoes forced on their feet for a change. Where the heck is Justice?
