Rachel Maddow is justifiably taking heat for her tinfoil hat theory about Niger. But why is she the only one?
The left’s modus operandi goes like this: Trump is bad, evil, wrong, etc. Therefore, facts be damned. Bend and twist facts to meet the that perception of Trump. That’s why Maddow concocted her story.
Maddow isn’t the only one doing this. Hedge-fund queen and far left activist Amy Siskind tweets weird lists developed by some self-proclaimed “authoritarianism expert”. The lists are supposed to warn us of our dangerous slide into fascism. Siskind has yet to explain how we’re becoming a fascist nation yet she’s free to tweet against the regime.
There’s Cathy Areu. Recently on Fox she argued that Russian collusion “could be the reason” Trump was elected. Note the assumption evident in her reasoning: Trump couldn’t have been elected because of a whole host of liberal positions voters rejected. Trump could only have been elected if a hostile foreign power waged cyber war against our political process. Moreover, Areu presumes Trump’s election was a bad thing.
It’s at this point I’d bring up congresswoman Wilson and her unrepentant willingness to take the tragedy of a fallen Soldier and ride it into rock star status. Or the many on her side of the aisle that have piled on in order to make the narrative work.
