Fake News King Gateway Pundit Proves He’s Not Just A Bad Reporter, He’s A Bad Person
That’s quite a headline from a guy, Jim Jamitis, whose colleague (who he references in his piece), Susan Wright, is amongst the most vile cretins on the internet.
If you support Trump you’re a Branch Trumpidian, Melania Trump wears plastic Bond-o on her face, Trump is incapable of talking policy – and these are her compliments.
At a campaign stop in Marion, Indiana today, Senator Ted Cruz came face-to-face with the vile, classless idiocy of the basic, 2-brain celled Branch Trumpidian.
Cruz answered the slack-jawed dullards, in regards to their mindless repeating of Trumpidian slogans.
One gets the impression that we’re one generation away from President Honey Boo-Boo.
…if these people are supporting Trump, they’re teaching their kids to talk like Trump… Woe to the Republic.
I’ve not seen anywhere where Wright delineates between someone who has simply voted for Trump and the basic 2 brain-celled Trumpidian. We’re all slack-jawed dullards.
So, with this as our baseline, I was eager to see what made Jim Hoft a “bad person,” you know, beyond being a vile, classless, slack-jawed, 2 brain-celled dullard.
Let’s start with the “Bad Reporter” part.
I will concede that Gateway has jumped the gun in its zeal to be first (a function of focusing on traffic rather than accuracy) on a story here and there. But if this makes Jim Hoft a bad reporter, let the reporter without sin cast the first stone.
I’d much prefer a reporter who’s goofed a story on breaking news (and corrects it) than a conservative reporter who takes their time writing a piece that declares a fellow conservative is the KING of Fake News. I reserve that title for the left.
So what makes Hoft a “bad person”?
Branch Trumpidians– It’s a segment of Trump supporters who are not satisfied unless every person on the political right vows unconditional allegiance to the man they seem to see as something more than just a President. They have a religious fervor and no tolerance for infidels who don’t bow and pray toward Mar-a-lago five times a day.
Back during the 2003 invasion of Iraq, Saddam Hussein’s Information Minister Muhammad Said al-Sahhafearn earned the comical nickname of “Baghdad Bob” for his laughable statements to the press about how Iraqi forces were delivering a humiliating defeat to the attacking Americans. The truth of what was really happening was obvious, yet “Bob” insisted that there were no Americans anywhere near Baghdad and those who were elsewhere in Iraq were committing mass suicide rather than face up to the Iraqi army. Donald Trump has his own version of “Baghdad Bob.” His name is Jim Hoft, aka The Gateway Pundit and was once a legitimate blogger but has since overdosed on Trumpism’s hallucinogenic Koolaid.
One can say the same about RedState, no?
What do we call the segment of Trump detractors who are not satisfied unless every blog on the political right is using “Branch Trumpidians” to describe the slack-jawed mouthbreathers that don’t quite see what Trump has done to warrant such pig-piling?
And who is Baghdad Bob in this equation?
Trump won and RedState is still fighting. The truth about what really happened is obvious, to coin a Jamitis phrase.
Jamitis tries again to convince readers that Hoft is a “bad person.”
He tells the tale of the former good friends, Dana Loesch, and her husband, Mr. Dana Loesch, falling out of favor with one another. They were good friends, but seem to have cooled off over the issue of Trump.
Loesch took umbrage with Hoft characterizing her as #NeverTrump. She denies the charge, even though she was among the writers for National Review that put together a special issue imploring slack-jawed Americans from electing their God, 2 brain-celled Trump. If she finally got on board with Trump, it was done with a lot less fanfare than the turkey shoot.
Jamitis says Hoft’s speculation that he was disinvited to a speaking event in St. Louis at Loesch’s request is a symptom of his “derangement.”
I have no special knowledge to know whether Hoft is correct or not. But if he’s incorrect, how does this make him a “bad person” on par with Baghdad Bob?
RedState is participating in hit pieces, which is fine. They are on the low road, which isn’t the road they claim to travel on.
