Whoa … Earlier this week, Piers Morgan snidely asked, “Where would Britain be without you & your massive guns.” The obvious answer given by a few tweeters was, “Speaking German.” Morgan followed up by tweeting, “It was really good of America to join WW2 two years late, after millions had died. Many thanks.”
Of course the real history is different. Many Americans volunteered to join the war effort on their own. And American industry was unleashed to help the Allies even before a formal declaration of war. Oh, and there’s the fact that Roosevelt got heat from Americans for dedicating too many resources to the European theater when it was the Japanese who attacked the country. Way to denigrate Britain’s strongest ally, Piers.
Crowder was the real enemy … You’ll remember that a couple of weeks ago, Twitter suspended Steven Crowder for a week over a funny video featuring Sven self-identifying as a computer at a trans meetup at the SXSW festival. Who has Twitter not suspended? Jihadis who use the networks to foster hate and spread a violent ideology. Conservative Review’s Jordan Schachtel has all the details. I’d say this is unbelievable, but really, it isn’t.

About that Sinclair producer … Earlier this week, CNN media critic/cheerleader Brian Stelter got excited that a producer at a local Sinclair-owned station resigned over the announcement against fake news that Sinclair executives had local anchors read. There’s a big problem, though. The resignation proves the point of conservatives: the producer is actually a very vocal left-wing activist. Stelter and CNN presented the producer as an apolitical actor upset at the politicization of a local broadcast. The Daily Caller’s Peter Hasson blows that narrative completely out of the water. You don’t get to claim someone who organizes a Black Lives Matter rally is a nonpartisan “journalist.”
Brilliant … The National Review’s Kyle Smith wrote a piece titled, “Sinclair Broadcast Group’s outrageous assault on our democracy.” From the title, you may be asking why I’d highlight this. But it’s a brilliant piece of satire that skewers leftist arguments. The closing is a powerful defense of the First Amendment. It is well worth the read.
