The coastal and urban elites have been given the word that they must virtue signal on three new fronts: “fake news,” the Dakota pipeline and the refusal to use the term “Alt-Right.”
The “fake news” buzz is all about censorship, points out Karol Markowicz of the New York Post. “What the left is trying to do is designate anything outside its ideological bubble as suspect on its face,” she writes.
Sophia Wilansky litterally blew off her right hand to virtue signal to fellow Leftists her opposition to the Dakota pipeline. Truly bizarre behavior. Leftists are celebrating the Obama regime’s acquiesce to their demands on this issue, but Trump will likely reverse this decision immediately – and the New York protester will have traveled all that way to blow off her hand for nothing.
Leftists are demanding that the US media either not use the term “Alt-Right” or be sure to describe it as a racist, homophobic, sexist and evil movement of uneducated degerate hate-mongers in their “news” coverage of the fast-growing movement. This pits the Progressive media against their fellow Progressive urbanites and has already moved the US media even further to the Left as an advocacy coalition. It comes after the New York Times admitted it blew it on its heavily biased coverage of the Trump campaign and wants to move back in the direction of real journaliam. So much for that thought!
