As a site who had one of our memes tweeted by Trump I find this interesting.
CNN tracked down the Redditer who created the CNN body-slam gif and threatened to out his real name. What was even more gross was the admonition that followed-
CNN is not publishing “HanA**holeSolo’s” name because he is a private citizen who has issued an extensive statement of apology, showed remorse by saying he has taken down all his offending posts, and because he said he is not going to repeat this ugly behavior on social media again. In addition, he said his statement could serve as an example to others not to do the same.
CNN reserves the right to publish his identity should any of that change.
“Not going to repeat this ugly behavior on social media again”?
“CNN reserves the right to publish his identity should any of that change?”
What the ef is going on here? CNN is blackmailing a private citizen who did NOTHING WRONG!!!!
Wait, I take that back. What the person did wrong was say that this “serves as an example to others not to do the same.”
Yeah, sure. CNN is going to keep me from posting stuff like this-
And if I don’t stop they are going to do what? They are going to find out my real name and publish it so something bad can happen to me?
CNN’s stance was that Trump’s tweet was going to cause something bad to happen to a journalist, and then they threaten to dox people in hope that something bad happens to them.
Screw CNN sideways.

And I’m not all that happy with Ben Shapiro, who can’t even report this story without lobbing in several jabs at Trump. Doesn’t this repressed bore realize that Trump is causing this upheaval? He is laying bare the issue of a thuggish left-wing press for all to see and the right is winning the fight, no thanks to people who still don’t get it.
I get Shapiro’s point. We all do. Trump embarrasses him. WGAS?????????
Trump is my tool to achieve what I want achieved politically, no matter what the “tone” is.
In his piece Ben Shapiro says (with an exclamation point) that the left’s behavior did not cause a man to shoot republican congressmen. So what is Trump’s behavior going to do? What’s the great fear? We’re all going to start mocking handicapped people? (Which Trump never did, by the way.)
Ben would like to have everything done his way – on a lecture circuit that no one cares about, no one responds to, which accomplishes very little.
A body slam gif by a no name at Reddit did more to expose the left than Shapiro has done since he put down his fiddle.
