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.
Not cool. Not cool at all.

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.
Not to be snarky, but Melania can probably use a week’s rest from Blabbermouth Don. Sounds heavenly to me.

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

Wow. Real classy folks. “When they go low we go high.” Right? ????

Must be miserable to have your president in your head 24/7. Is it really enjoyable for you to be so hateful all the time? Doesn't it get old??

How precious. Another loving, compassionate tolerant liberal. So full of love and grace.

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.

Unrepentant YouTube Decides to Suspend Mainstream News Channel Over ‘Misinformation’
The barons of the Information Revolution are no less corrupt than those of the Industrial Revolution before them.
There are concerns that the barons of the Information Revolution, much like the barons of the Industrial Revolution, are exploiting their content producers at an unsustainable clip, and creating a very dangerous bottleneck in the world of free speech. Given just how much of the internet’s traffic flows through just a few sites, it is imperative that we keep a keen eye on what platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube are doing. They are the new gatekeepers of nearly the entire breadth of current information, and if they were to choose to keep us in the dark on any particular issue, it would be quite easy for them to do so. That’s why the latest news from YouTube is so terrifying. YouTube said Sunday it had barred Sky News Australia from uploading new content for one week, citing concerns about Covid-19 misinformation. The move comes after a review of posts uploaded by the Rupert Murdoch-owned TV channel, which has a substantial online presence. “We have clear and established Covid-19 medical misinformation policies… to prevent the spread of Covid-19 misinformation that could cause real-world harm,” a YouTube statement said. With 1.86 million YouTube subscribers, the channel — which is owned by a subsidiary of Murdoch’s News Corp — has a conservative following well beyond Australia. The mainstream media and the mainstream social networks haven’t always gotten their COVD info right, either, which makes their declarations regarding “misinformation” all the more laughable. Early on in the pandemic, these platforms pushed back against the possibility that the virus itself may have been a part of some sort of lab leak, even going so far as to censor any such discussion. Over a year later, and as health experts began to suggest this yes, this was truly a possibility, the premature nature of…
CNN Anchor Goes on Insulting Rant Against the Unvaccinated
Oh, spare us the drama, Chris.
When it comes to the heated and prolonged debate that this nation has been having on the subject of vaccines, it is just about impossible to say something that won’t offend somebody. This is the Coke versus Pepsi of the 2020’s; the Yankees/Red Sox of medicine. There is no grey area, and there is no middle ground. And, if you had any doubt about what side of the argument CNN anchors Don Lemon and Chris Cuomo were on, you needn’t worry any longer. Anchor Don Lemon said, “I still am flummoxed by the misinformation over the vaccine, people refusing to get vaccinated and also refusing to wear masks. Every day seems like it gets worse. And I don’t mean that. I mean the people who are dying, who are actually coming down with it, especially the children… I mean, just heartbreaking.” And then came the insults… Cuomo said, “People seen with significant cases and hospitalizations are getting younger. Part of the metric here is ignorance, but part of it is also arrogance, this misplaced sense of righteous indignation, and resistance that they believe is a false manifestation of freedom. This is not an issue of freedom. Of course, you have freedom to make choices about your own body. Let’s put to the side the irony that so many of these people don’t want to afford that freedom to women. But what we’re saying is, does it mean it’s the right choice? And these suggestions, I think the vaccine is safe, but you have the freedom to take it, but I don’t know that the science lines up, but I don’t know why they’re changing the guidance. These suggestions feel resistance. I think it’s a mistake.” Vaccine hesitancy is believed to account for a majority of the unvaccinated population in America today.
