Huffington Post Embarrasses Themselves (Again)

Huffington Post is a disgrace to “News Media”. Time and time again, the news aggregate site pushes narratives through exaggeration, manipulation, and a blatant disregard for context.

Last week, Huffington Post published an editorial entitled “Could It Be Time To Deny White Men The Franchise?”; written by a South African man masquerading as a supposed feminist, “Shelley Garland.” The article made its rounds, questioning whether the time has come to put an end to whites practicing their fundamentally American, constitutionally inherent right to vote. As conservatives and all rational human beings everywhere possessing a modicum of human decency, intellect, logic/reason, and common sense might point out – the premise of said article serves as yet another egregious example of the left’s slippery slope into total irrationality. Thankfully and laughably, the article was one of satire; and, it does an amazing job calling to attention the amateur hour goings on over at HuffPo.

It seems we owe the man responsible an appreciative round of applause for how his work has so effectively thrown an unfortunate spotlight on how far the left has fallen in terms of some of their outrageous attempts to fill the role of “harbingers of (false) equality”. It seems the entire ideology has devolved into total chaos, the lengths gone to by liberals as part of this so-called “resistance” has been difficult to take in as a person of logic and reason. A patriot who loves this country.

One consolation – And, its been a rather crucial one – has been that the left has made it so ridiculously and satisfyingly simple to make fun of them and their many “movements”. It would be considered comic gold if it weren’t for the tragic implications the overwhelming spike in radical liberals have brought to bare; particularly, in recent months.

As a writer interested in politics, it’s almost overwhelming to discern what, among all the insanity we’ve all been witnessing, should I spend my time rebutting, debating, and writing about. Just when you think the left couldn’t possibly become any more outlandish and juvenile – no matter how often the hi-jinx they perpetrate devolves to chaos and violence… demonstrating repeatedly sad hypocrisy on nearly every issue on the (D) platform (tolerance, anyone?) – liberal America never ceases to amaze me.

There was a time when liberals and conservatives could debate issues, protest and counter-protest one another, share ideas, yet still come together as fellow Americans. For Huffington Post, it wasn’t the failure or lack of professionalism required to fully vet the absurdly titled article that’s so incomprehensible; the ultimate failure is an indicative one: publishing the satirical article means the staff and editors at HuffPo actually consider the article’s premise a fair question – one they wished millions of readers and visitors to their farcical-liberal-incarnation-of-Drudge-Report website to consider in all seriousness.

The downward spiral in liberal attitudes and behavior holds significant relevance considering the recent faux pas made by HuffPo’s staff as it’s precisely the sort of premise and language, found in the satirical article their editors actually took seriously enough to publish, that has led to the ever-increasing incitement and divisiveness perpetrated by radical and moderate left-wing activists alike.

The democratic party once consisted of a great many centrists, moderates, and patriotic Americans who, while having some level of fundamental aversion to some conservative ideals, the democratic base loved and believed in America; however, the once overwhelmingly moderate democratic base seems to have all but disappeared from the political landscape.

Organizations such as ‘Occupy Wall Street’, ‘Antifa’, ‘Black Lives Matter’ (BLM), etc. seem to have infiltrated all levels of liberal and democratic discourse. It’s the irresponsible reporting by outlets such as Huffington Post which seem to enable, encourage, and lend credence to these radical extremist groups with whom no sensible American – democrat or otherwise – can stand behind in good conscience. Moderate democrats seem to have become a thing of the past; the militant liberal has fought, bullied, and boycotted into the main-fold, leaving even moderates obliged to “go along to get along”.

Below, you can read an excerpt of the article HuffPo published in earnest. The article has since been taken down, but the full text is still making its rounds on the interwebs:

“Some of the biggest blows to the progressive cause in the past year have often been due to the votes of white men,” the piece stated. “If white men were not allowed to vote, it is unlikely that the United Kingdom would be leaving the European Union, it is unlikely that Donald Trump would now be the President of the United States, and it is unlikely that the Democratic Alliance would now be governing four of South Africa’s biggest cities.” 

“If white men no longer had the vote, the progressive cause would be strengthened. It would not be necessary to deny white men indefinitely — the denial of the vote to white men for 20 years (just less than a generation) would go some way to seeing a decline in the influence of reactionary and neo-liberal ideology in the world,” it continued, adding that although “it may be unfair . . . a moratorium on the franchise for white males for a period of between 20 and 30 years is a small price to pay for the pain inflicted by white males on others.”

ANTIFA or ISIS? The left’s downward spiral into violence, intolerance, and an apparent affinity for masking up like criminals is not a good look on them. Sadly, little to no liberal democrat politicians or media organizations have felt any responsibility to rein in any of the egregious violence perpetrated by a growing base of extremist supporters. Democrats are on the precipice of becoming an extremist organization if this chaos continues to go unchecked by democrat leadership and the media…

It’s well-known that liberal America loves Hollywood celebrities, music stars, and pop-culture. They seem to ascribe to all of it; what those in these industries say, what they believe, what they expect their followers to aspire to.

It’s safe to say, liberals have Hollywood and pop-culture cornered, conquered, and will remain conjoined together for the unforeseeable future. And, that’s okay. As each year passes, it grows more and more clear that many Americans are starting to finally question the intellectual capacities of these influential “stars” as they continue to prove, time and time again, that their expertise is better suited in front of the camera; sticking with simple worries such as how those plastic surgery scars are healing up. 

Since liberals have the pop-culture market cornered, it is time conservatives work towards cornering a market of our own – aside from our affinity for and application of logic, fairness, and reason – Liberals continue to unknowingly create such a prolific volume of potential fodder to be used by conservatives across the nation. It would be a shame if collectively, the conservatives of this country find themselves unable to use the means to which the hateful, spiteful, violent folks of the “resistance” have repeatedly resorted.

One thing many should know by now about liberals is – liberals just love… they need to be “cool”. They need to be accepted. They need to follow the status quo; it should be readily apparent to any casual observer among us that without that love and acceptance they garner through shared ideological beliefs, many would likely go back to the days when you’d be hard-pressed to find a liberal democrat who cared enough about politics to even vote in mid-term elections.

The “loud” liberal expressions this nation’s been subjected to, since Barack Obama’s presidency and the very profound cultural evolution which ensued, at a time were not nearly as outrageous and consistently deplorable. The reasons for this unfortunate evolution in American culture among liberals are too many to name – but, it’s a worthy matter to discuss at another time. To treat the wounds suffered by our national collective, we must first diagnose the illness: liberalism. Then, perhaps a thorough and complete understanding of the variables which led to the unprecedented partisan divide in which we live. Racially, economically, globally, the stance of the United States has tragically lost standing on every front. It’s a wonder how liberal Americans have thus far seemed completely incapable of observing the steady decline we’ve all faced together as a result of liberalism’s grasp.

This incident over at Huffington Post was a great achievement for the man who wrote it. He not only wrote some great satire that, in all honesty, confounded even me as I read it, incredulous at yet another example of liberalism gone-too-far. I believed its veracity simply because nothing surprises me anymore with liberals and the lengths they will go to.

The hilarious thing is not even the editors at Huffington Post picked up on the fact the man wrote, what in a sane world would be considered something way over the line. What’s concerning is the reality the piece passed through editors, who actually gave the go-ahead, feeling the argument was one worthy of mass publication which would be read by potentially millions of American citizens.

The Huffington Post is NOT a news organization. They’re a disgrace to news, American culture, and to American heritage and tradition. We citizens with philosophical and political beliefs grounded in logic and reason, hard yet fair decisions focused on long-term benefits for all American citizens, can only hope this latest infiltration of the liberal propaganda machine serves as a harbinger of things to come. Perhaps a coordinated effort put forth by conservatives to take advantage of the left’s own lunacy might one day help mitigate the left’s devolution into the violence, divisive and uninformed hatred, and the nonsensical tantrum throwing routinely observable in cities all across this nation.
