Extremists on the Set

From driftglass:

For example, as I sit here, I appear to be the only contrarian curmudgeon who did not view Jake Tapper cutting off Stephen Miller’s microphone after that wind-up toy brownshirt Gish Galloped around the studio and back again as some sort of triumph of Truth and Journalism.

No, Jake. In fact Truth and Journalism took another size 13 steel-toed Timberland to the yam sack the minute you decided to let this degenerate liar on teevee at all.

Allow me to explain.

Miller’s showed up with one objective in mind — the same objective as Ann Coulter, Milo Yiannopoulos, Ben Shapiro, Richard Spencer and pretty much every other bomb-throwing Conservative goon every time someone in authority is stupid enough to give them a public platform. To come right off the blocks as loud and offensive and relentlessly noxious as possible so that they either bulldoze right over anyone who gets in their way, or to get themselves cut off.

We have a comment policy (sort of)

We often encounter extreme amounts of spam targeting more controversial posts. This tends to annoy and confuse Aunt Tildy. If your comment is accidentally omitted, please help her out by resubmitting, perhaps including a note telling us what happened. If you find comments closed, we can still put yours in its proper place. Just attach to another post with an explanation.

Aunt Tildy appreciates most every comment. Truly. But she has what could be an unrealistic view of the innocence of younger readers. She may hesitate when profanity becomes extreme.

In some cases, you might follow our lead. When we ruffle her delicate sensibilities, a soft apology has usually helped.
