Washington Put up columnist Jennifer Rubin is terrified. Truly, strike that. Rubin is now into utter, full-blown hysteria.
“Can we even want the Republican Social gathering?” she wails.
Then Fox News headlines her subsequent bout with hysteria.
Washington Put up’s Jennifer Rubin calls to ‘defund’ Walter Reed after Trump publicizes White Home return
‘Any MD who publicly endorses this madness must lose his/her license. Interval,’ Rubin declared
The story reported:
“Trump’s medical workforce, led by White Home doctor Dr. Sean Conley, reaffirmed the president’s optimism, with Conley noting Trump’s situation had improved from when he was admitted Friday, whereas including he “could not solely be out of the woods but.”
Rubin responded with a tirade blasting the president, who she known as a “menace to everybody round you,” and the docs accountable for his restoration.
“Any MD who publicly endorses this madness must lose his/her license. Interval,” Rubin declared in considered one of a number of tweets, one other writing, “Congress may wish to defund Walter Reed. It’s a public well being hazard.”
All of which is to say, Jennifer Rubin has whipped her agitation right into a frenzied panic — sheer hysteria. (Readers will do not forget that Rubin finally, belatedly eliminated the wildly inaccurate “conservative” label from her bio in 2018.)
Fox reported her feverish hysterics in regards to the GOP this manner:
“Within the column — headlined “Can we even want the Republican Social gathering?” — Rubin made the case that President Trump has sealed the GOP’s destiny after “years of racism and xenophobia” as a minority depending on “White grievance and cultural resentment.”
“The disagreeable reality for these anticipated to say ‘there are superb individuals’ in each events is that, other than just a few stray governors and Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah), there actually will not be superb individuals operating the Republican Social gathering,” she wrote. “They’ve offered their souls to Trump and both passively or actively purchased into white supremacy and spiritual authoritarianism. They waged struggle on the Structure and goal actuality. There’s nothing redeeming in any of that — or within the right-wing media machine encompassing the deluded true believers and money-hungry charlatans keen to throw crimson meat to an viewers they suppose consists of uneducated bigots.”
Obtained that? The social gathering of Ben Carson, Herschel Walker, Vernon Robinson, Deneen Borelli, Diamond and Silk, Paris Dennard and plenty of, many extra distinguished African – Individuals is the social gathering of “white supremacy.” Proper.
Recall Dr. Ben Carson’s knowledge of white liberals, which would appear to obviously apply to Rubin.
“Effectively, they’re essentially the most racist individuals there are. You realize, they put you in somewhat class, somewhat field — it’s important to suppose this manner. How might you dare come off the plantation?”
To make use of Dr. Carson’s analogy, Jennifer Rubin, as with many white liberals, views herself because the mistress of the liberal plantation – clueless that she is presenting herself as precisely the champion of the white supremacy she thinks she is denouncing.
However her pro-claimed racial superiority views apart, what’s putting is her virus-induced hysteria. Defund Walter Reed as a result of it handled and launched the President? Shut down the army’s premiere medical heart that gives “care and providers to greater than 1 million beneficiaries yearly”?
Nice concept. Let’s punish the women and men of the American army as a result of Rubin hates the commander-in-chief.
That is now not accountable commentary. On high of her race-card taking part in that is sheer hysterical nuttiness. Rubin exemplifies a degree made in a July column by The Wall Avenue Journal’s Holman Jenkins on the flat-out lies from The Washington Put up in its protection of the Trump July third speech at Mt. Rushmore. Jenkins column was titled:
The Press on Mount Rushmore
When Donald Trump is gone and forgotten, the media’s lies gained’t be really easy to overlook.
Jenkins wrote – daring print provided:
“Each American, no matter how she or he feels about Donald Trump, ought to learn his July 3 speech at Mount Rushmore after which the Washington Put up account of the speech by Robert Costa and Philip Rucker. The Put up account begins: “President Trump’s unyielding push to protect Accomplice symbols and the legacy of white domination, crystallized by his harsh denunciation of the racial justice motion Friday evening at Mount Rushmore . . .”
Besides that Mr. Trump made no reference to the Confederacy or any of its symbols. His solely reference to the Civil Struggle was to Abraham Lincoln and the abolition of slavery as a success of the American Revolution.
Sen. Tammy Duckworth, as many commentators on the suitable famous, additionally lied when she stated Mr. Trump “spent all his time speaking about useless traitors.” He talked about not a single chief or champion of the Confederacy.
…Which I’m guessing signifies that Trump-defending pundits aren’t the one ones troubled by the Rubicon we’ve crossed when mainstream press retailers and a U.S. senator flagrantly lie in regards to the content material of a presidential tackle.
Seemingly effortlessly, although, he has incited individuals and establishments that do have one thing to lose to wreck their very own reputations: The FBI, CNN, our universities, and so forth.
Tens of tens of millions of voters who plan to vote towards Mr. Trump within the fall hardly want Put up lies to offer them extra cause to take action. However tens of millions of others will vote for Mr. Trump, or take into account voting for him, precisely as a result of the Washington Put up lies about him. Their wavering assist at this level in his ill-starred presidency is sustained solely by the deranged dishonesty of his opponents.
So right here we’re: America faces the virus, the protests, a brand new and harmful pressure with China, and essentially the most tumultuous election in latest reminiscence. And it does so with out thought management well worth the identify, with solely mental and emotional chaos, from a few of our once-credible information organizations.”
What Rubin fails to grasp – and he or she is hardly alone on this within the “mainstream” leftist press – is that sheer, frenzied hysteria over the virus, on high of the systemic racism that may be a hallmark of the adherents of the plantation mentality that gave beginning to a Democratic Social gathering with repeated on-the- file assist for slavery, segregation, lynching, the Klan and now identification politics – the son of segregation – will precisely give political gas to, as Jenkins says, those that are contemplating “voting for him, precisely as a result of The Washington Put up lies about him.”
Briefly? Rubin exemplifies precisely what’s unsuitable with the American Left. They want the race card to win elections, and their media figures are so emotionally fragile on this pandemic that the virus has whipped them into an emotional frenzied panic that alerts nothing greater than a public emotional breakdown.
Which is concurrently as pathetic as it’s disgraceful.
