Arrests Made By FBI After Unnerving Death Threats Against Conservative Activist

This political violence has no place in a free and prosperous society, and we must come together, left and right, to condemn it.

Folks, we are all Americans, and it may be high time to remind ourselves of that fact.

Our nation is living in unprecedented political times, at least for those of us who are under the age of 150.  Not since the Civil War has there been this much animosity among the American people, and it’s no secret where this nonsense is coming from:  The sensationalist mainstream media, whose ratings and paychecks are dependent upon whether or not we tune in and watch commercials.

And if their own salaciousness isn’t even to shove us into anarchy, the fact that the “news” is now a competitive business, all of these networks are competing with one another in order to garner your viewership…further escalating the hyperbole and nonsense.

All of this vitriol has culminated in violence, or threats of violence, aimed in purely political directions.

Ben Shapiro is just the latest victim.

A man was arrested in Washington state on Wednesday after reportedly making death threats against conservative talk show host Ben Shapiro.

Shapiro told Fox News he couldn’t comment on pending legal proceedings but confirmed the situation, as reported by TMZ, on Twitter, thanking law enforcement “for their quick and hard work here.”

The suspect reportedly threatened both Shapiro and his family. Sources told the outlet the threats were “extremely serious.”

Shapiro, who currently serves as editor-in-chief of The Daily Wire and hosted an election show on Fox News last year, filed a report with the Los Angeles Police Department related to the threats, according to TMZ.

A palpable turn in the public-political relationship occurred early in the Trump presidency, after Kathy Griffin’s “Trump beheading” photoshoot gave way, just two weeks to the day later, to the attempted assassination of the GOP charity baseball team by former Bernie Sanders campaign worker James T. Hodgkinson.

Liberal PAC Takes Aim at Fox News with Unforgivable Comparisons

This supercharged hyperbole is continuing to drive our nation apart.

Published

There is no denying that the American media landscape is rife with hyperbole at this point.  In fact, it’s hard to witness even a few moments of cable “news” without being completely showered in unbelievable comparisons and outright vitriol in 2021, and this ever-angsty ethos has now found its way out of the newsroom and into politics proper. The latest symptom of this unkempt rage comes to us from a Democratic political action committee who have decided to take aim at Fox News. A recent video by the progressive MeidasTouch PAC calls on viewers to reject the GOP while comparing Republican leaders and Fox News figures to militant preachers and radical clerics, accusing them of fueling “the biggest terror threats.” The fresh 80-second clip, published Sunday, was released in a tweet marking a decade from the killing of the late notorious terrorist leader Osama bin Laden. “Today, the biggest terror threats we face are homegrown, being fueled by GOP leaders and their propaganda networks,” the tweet reads, before calling on “all patriotic Americans” to resign from the GOP. And it gets worse: While flashing images of war and terrorists, the video begins by stating that, “In every country torn by strife, violence, and hardship, men and women are drawn to extremist leaders, promising to take on the enemies of their people.” The video then displays a Confederate flag, Branch Davidian leader David Koresh and Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh. “In America, some of our lost souls respond in a similar way to the call of influential voices,” the clip continues. The video then flashes images featuring Fox News hosts Tucker Carlson, Jeanine Pirro, and Sean Hannity, as well as Fox News contributor Geraldo Rivera. “But instead of militant preachers or radical clerics, every single night in America they can listen…

Joe Rogan Caves to Mainstream Media Over Vaccine Statement

Did the oligarchy just bludgeon free speech at Joe Rogan’s expense?

Published

Joe Rogan is a bit of an anomaly within the media realm, having recreated the way in which many of us consume informative content. Instead of packaging his brand of interview show into a 22-minute or 46-minute standardized slot, Rogan decided to allow for long form, freestyle content, with some episodes pushing well past the three hour mark with even a single guest.  This was largely seen as a refreshing boost to the very idea of free speech as it allowed for explanations of positions that would never have been possible within the mainstream media’s allowed portion-size. But when Rogan finally took a deal to bring his massively popular show to Spotify, there were concerns that the program may lose a bit of its freedom, or that it might be subject to peer pressure from the world at large. Those fears may have come true this week. Joe Rogan retracted his comments on Thursday after receiving backlash online for suggesting young, healthy people shouldn’t worry about getting the COVID-19 vaccination. “I am not an anti-vax person,” Rogan said on his popular Spotify podcast “The Joe Rogan Experience.” “In fact, I said I believe they are safe and I encourage many people to take them. I just said if you’re a young healthy person, you don’t need it. Their argument was you need it for other people. But that’s a different conversation. And yes, that makes sense,” he continued. The host continued… Rogan, 53, clarified, “I am not a doctor. I am a f***ing moron. I am a cage-fighting commentator… I am not a respected source of information even for me. But I at least try to be honest about what I am saying.” Vaccine hesitancy has been a bit of an obstacle in our nation’s reopening plan, and some lawmakers are…
