Andrew Klavan Reveals Why American Political Discourse is So Brutal Today, And The Media Plays a Huge Role

He’s on to something here.

If you’ve spent more than five minutes on social media, and, for whatever sadistic reason, decided to view the comment section on a news story involving a political topic of some sort, you’ve no doubt witnessed the full expression of the Christian doctrine of total depravity.

Yes, if anyone has any doubts about the absolutely wicked, corrupt nature of mankind, just reading online comments will spell it all out for you pretty clearly.

Why are we so divided these days? Why can’t people seem to have a decent conversation about politics without wanting to bash each other’s brains out?

Andrew Kalvan might have the answer and it has a lot to do with the media.

Trump or Biden, who will win?

“I think the reason we can’t talk is because the media stands between Left and Right, and 8% of the people, the radical left, are running 85% of the media,” The Daily Wire podcast host explained on Monday’s episode of “The Andrew Klavan Show.” “By the media, I don’t just mean however you’re getting your news, I’m talking about Hollywood, I’m talking about social media. It was amazing to watch social media this weekend; I think a lot of people just took the weekend off and weren’t on it, so the only people who were left were angry people, people who always say ‘I’m so outraged!’ It was endless, and I started to crack up after a while. It was kind of funny.”

Klavan also criticized New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd for calling President Donald Trump the “real American Psycho” and Republicans not supporting the White House “malefactors.”

“What she’s saying here is just because other Republicans attack Trump, doesn’t mean we should like other Republicans; they all stink,” he explained. “The point she is making is hate Trump, but don’t forget to hate all the other Republicans as well. At least that’s honest, they’re not saying, ‘Oh it started with Trump’ — they’re saying we’ve hated you all this time — it never occurs to her that maybe Trump is a reaction to all that hatred she was pouring on people.”

What’s getting in the way? It’s that day after day, speaking to their base, telling them “don’t forget, it’s not enough hate, it’s good that you hate Donald Trump, but you’re not hating enough, you’re not outraged enough, you’re not mean enough.” That’s how we get this stuff, like what’s happening to Tucker Carlson.

Klavan is on to something here.

The hatred these folks have for the right is absolutely nothing new. It’s the way they’ve been for ages now, and they’ve never really been shy about expressing their hatred for conservatives.

And that’s precisely what has led to the slap to the snout the left received from the election of Donald Trump to the presidency. Which, instead of learning their lesson and maybe toning down the hate and learning to actually engage the issues, they’ve turned up the heat even more.

One has to wonder what it’s going to take for these people to get it.

Leftist Woman On Murdered Portland Man: ‘Tough Luck. Don’t Be A F— Trump Supporter’

This is who they are…

Imagine being so consumed with hate for the president of the United States that you are 100% fine with a man being murdered in cold blood simply for being a Trump supporter. It’s as if Jay Bishop (aka Aaron Danielson) was not a human being or something. This kind of reaction is the direct result of a lying mainstream media, racist Black Lives Matter movement, ignorant Hollywood elites, and do-nothing Congressional Democrats. And it is pathetic.

The officials said the suspect, Michael Forest Reinoehl, 48, was killed during the encounter in Lacey, Wash., southwest of Seattle, when a federal fugitive task force moved to apprehend him. An arrest warrant had been issued by the Portland police earlier Thursday, on the same day that Vice News published an interview with Mr. Reinoehl in which he appeared to admit to the shooting, saying, “I had no choice.” Here’s a clip featuring Reinoehl… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gfMnZX7Z56o

‘I’m Not Making This Up’ — Biden: Trump Responsible For ‘All The People’ Who Died From COVID-19

Trump, not China. Remember that.

CNN continues to give Joe Biden a platform to spout nonsense without being fact-checked. The network remains intent on lying to its viewers, simply because they believe President Trump is evil. If POTUS made a comment similar to what Joe just said about deaths from COVID-19, it would make headline news. But since the former VP made the comments, he gets a pass. Just remember that Joe isn’t blaming China, where the virus originated. No, he’s placing the blame on Trump for the deaths of, well, everyone.

The popular NBC sketch show announced on Wednesday that the “Ace Ventura” actor will be the new celebrity impersonator to tackle Biden when the show returns on Oct. 3. Like Alec Baldwin’s Donald Trump, Carrey is expected to be the new go-to person for the show whenever they need to poke fun at the politics of the day, especially the month before an election. Let’s hear your thoughts on Biden in the comment section…
