Stephen King Posts Horrible Tweet About Melania Trump While She’s Recovering From Kidney Surgery

This is just plain awful.

If you’ve spent any significant amount of time on social media platform Twitter, you’re well aware that horror author Stephen King is a radical liberal who seems to struggle deeply with recognizing when his comments are inappropriate, almost as if he doesn’t have a filter between his brain and his fingers.

He’s not been shy at all about attacking President Trump, who he seems to loathe with a passion, tweeting negative things about him on a daily basis.

Well, it seems King went just a bit too far with his latest attack on the Trump family, as he posted a rather vicious tweet about their marriage all while First Lady Melania Trump is recovering from kidney surgery.

The horror author (who hasn’t written a good book in decades) took to Twitter on Monday to post a cruel and disgusting joke about first lady Melania Trump, who had just undergone emergency surgery for a kidney ailment — a surgery that will keep her in the hospital for a week.

“Not to be snarky, but Melania can probably use a week’s rest from Blabbermouth Don,” King tweeted. “Sounds heavenly to me,” he wrote moments after the White House announced the surgery.

Other folks on Twitter had some strong opinions about King’s barb, and they weren’t exactly what you’d call agreeable:

Look, it’s not necessary to insult Mr. King’s work in order to point out that his views on politics leave much to be desired and are skewed far from how the real world works. It seems a little much to insinuate that many of the bestselling books he’s written over the last 10 years are all junk, just because his politics are terrible.

Having said that, his politics are terrible. This tweet shows a complete lack of empathy, an inability to relate to the basic human condition which goes far beyond our political beliefs and ideology. This is not at all what tolerance looks like.

Rather than focus on taking digs at the people we believe to be our enemies, we should be finding common ground, wishing each other well, helping one another. All King’s comments do is serve to further divide people at a time when we’re already so far part from each other.

America needs less of this kind of rhetoric.

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…
