Talking About Dumb Tweets…

I’m glad I never supported Elizabeth Warren and don’t have to feel embarrassed after she posted this:

Zuckerberg went on Fox News—a hate-for-profit machine that gives a megaphone to racists and conspiracy theorists—to talk about how social media platforms should essentially allow politicians to lie without consequences. This is eroding our democracy.

I especially love the word “allow.” She thinks all those billionaires she likes to fake-condemn should be in the business of allowing or not allowing us to speak, read, and think. She believes that the political space should be ruled by three extremely rich guys whom nobody elected to any office.

To Warren, “democracy” is about Zuckerberg allowing or not allowing us, his serfs, whatever it pleases him. She thinks Zuckerberg needs more power, not less. She pouts at Zuckerberg when he resists the idea of completely occupying our political space.

Warren is not an outlier. She’s exactly what progressivism (leftism, whatever) is about. The state should wither away, and three gigantic corporations will rule the world, forcing everybody to take the same diversity classes. And everybody will sit at home, fat, doped up, glassy-eyed and recite woke mantras over dinners of insect burgers and Diet Coke.

  1. I think this link may deserve even a whole post – Rod Dreher linked to “this lengthy list of policy decisions by the Trump administration to contradict” his former view Trump “wasted his presidency on tweeting and starting stupid controversies instead of getting stuff done.”

    Each year from 2017 to 2020 has a long list of actions.

    This was in Dreher’s post which main subject was about trans in sports:

    // Trump, Trans, And Second Thoughts

    Connecticut’s policy allowing transgender girls to compete as girls in high school sports violates the civil rights of athletes who have always identified as female, the U.S. Education Department has determined in a decision that could force the state to change course to keep federal funding and influence others to do the same.

    1. I deeply respect Rod but he doesn’t understand marketing and branding like Trump does. Tweeting outrageous stuff is indispensable when you have 100% of the media (except for exactly 2 Fox personalities) hating you to death.

      Trump’s problem is not tweeting. It’s that Jared and Ivanka have squeezed every supporter of the actual Trump agenda out of the White House and he’s let them. And we are seeing the results right now with the riots and we saw them with H1B visa increases, etc.

  2. Warren has repeatedly labeled Fox News as “a hate-for-profit machine that gives a megaphone to racists and conspiracy theorists…”

    …Which can only mean that the vast majority of its viewers clearly fall into Hillary’s infamous category of “deplorables.” So Warren has no desire to try to win any of them over.

    Biden is doing something very unusual, running to the left rather than pivoting back toward the center after winning the primary. Some Democratic insiders are urging him to select Warren as his VP.

    If this happens, you will see a serious question tested in the general election: Biden will pick up a lot of disenchanted Bernie and Warren voters who think Biden himself is a semi-senile old centrist and might otherwise stay home on election day — but he will scare away moderate independents and and centrist Democrats who are more afraid of Warren’s far-left socialist agenda than they are of Trump.

    VP choices almost NEVER affect the election outcome (Johnson in 1960 is considered the only exception in the 20th Century, winning Texas for Kennedy), but 2020 is no normal election, considering Biden’s rapidly failing lucidity.

    So if Biden selects Warren, it will be very interesting to see how this choice affects his standoff with Trump in November.

    1. Unfortunately, as a result of the riots and Klobuchar’s involvement in the story, Klobuchar is out as a possible VP pick. It’s a shame because she was the only sane one of all.

  3. In case you missed this post and the interesting article it links to:

    I am NOT a company man! I am an empowered creative with a non-conformist outlook that is valued in our diverse workspace!

    This essay in American Affairs Journal is full of insights into how educated professionals conduct themselves as corporate bureaucrats while portraying themselves as non-conformists.
