Jeffrey Lord explains leftist fascism … Jeffrey Lord, who also writes for Conservative Review, published an article at the American Spectator calling out liberal fascism — specifically, campaigns by Media Matters for America to silence conservative thought. Until yesterday Lord was employed by CNN as a commentator.
Then Media Matters responded after Lord mockingly used the phrase “Sieg Heil” in response to MMFA’s Angelo Carusone correcting Lord’s spelling. As anyone with half a brain can see from the full exchange, the phrase was used to mock the fascist tactics by which the organization tries to silence thought.
CNN caves and fires Lord … Predictably, CNN caved to the pressure from MMFA and “severed ties” with Lord, whom Brian Stelter described as one of CNN’s best conservative analysts.
My take … I took both MMFA and CNN to task for stifling speech and differing viewpoints. It is not the goal of leftists like MMFA to simply offer differing viewpoints. They want to remove dissenting opinion from the public sphere completely.

The AP went there … In a tweet the Associated Press asks: “If North Korea sent missiles toward Guam or the US, could the US missile defense system shoot them down? Should it?” I mean, who even asks that question?
Newsweek comes out against high heels … Today’s proof that Trump Derangement Syndrome is real? Newsweek published an article about the women in Trump’s life wearing high heels and how that’s “horrifying.” The patriarchy is real, folks, or something.
More cuts at the New York Times … Despite the paper’s leading role in the “Resistance,” the New York Times is looking to cut more than just jobs, according to crosstown rival the New York Post. The Post reports that the broadsheet is looking to cut its weekly print magazine, as well the printed book section.
