Hillary Clinton’s former 2016 campaign press secretary, Brian Fallon, is not at all happy with academics who, according to his words “sellout leftism,” and has stated on Twitter he has a plan to carry out revenge against anyone who dares to break from the party line.
Given how evil and vindictive the left can be, especially those involved with the Clintons, is this sort of thing really all that surprising? Liberals hate it when folks actually think through individual issues by examining the facts for themselves rather than just adopting wholesale the Democratic Party platform.
So what’s Fallon going to do? Put them on a list.
Progressives should keep a list of names of the sellouts at Yale and elsewhere who are right now trying to smooth a path for the overturning of Roe and gutting of the New Deal. They should be unwelcome in future Democratic administrations.

Fallon has an extensive Democratic Party resume, having worked on the Kerry-Edwards campaign as a press aide in 2004, on the Robert Menendez 2006 senatorial campaign in a similar position, then later becoming chief spokesman for New York Senator Chuck Schumer. In 2011 he became the spokesman for the Senate Democratic Policy and Communications Center. In 2013 he moved to the Justice Department as the department’s director of public affairs under Attorney General Eric Holder.Trending:
In December 2015, after Hillary Clinton refused to apologize for falsely claiming that videos of Donald Trump’s statements regarding Islamic terrorism were being used by ISIS to recruit Muslims, Fallon stated, “Hell no. Hillary Clinton will not be apologizing to Donald Trump for correctly pointing out how his hateful rhetoric only helps ISIS recruit more terrorists. The person that needs to apologize in this matter is Donald Trump, for his hateful bigoted rhetoric toward Muslim Americans.”
Fallon was likely one of the “snotty-nosed kids” Bill Clinton referred to in late March 2016 when he reportedly snapped, “Those snotty-nosed kids over there are blowing this thing because nobody is listening to me.'”
Fallon’s suggestion was met with harsh online criticism:
Oh yeah inject that McCarthyism right into my veins that’s the pure stuff https://t.co/z3dGHLMXVl

Isn’t it ironic that so many on the left call conservatives “Hitler” and “Nazi” when it’s actually their behavior that more closely mirrors that sort of a belief system?
What really makes this hilarious is that by and large, the vast majority of leftists don’t even realize that’s how they are, making them completely clueless to their own hypocrisy.
At the end of the day, a person should be valued for their desire to approach issues with an analytical, critical mind, not just towing the line and believing something because everyone else believes it. That’s ridiculous.
Too bad they don’t value individualism. Guess it’s a bad idea to dare to go against the hive.
