Here at the Radical Agenda, we’ve learned the hard way never to overestimate the dignity of leftists. Whenever you think they have done the most despicable thing possible, just wait 24 hours and they will prove you wrong quite reliably.
It has really gotten to a point where nobody event finds it surprising, much less alarming when the media gets caught lying these days. Their “lie big, retract small” strategy is why savages still roam the streets saying “hands up don’t shoot” while rioting and setting buildings on fire. I don’t even think most of their viewers believe this Russia nonsense anymore.
Trying to violently topple a duly elected President, and blatantly lying about whatever they dreamed up the night before has become normalized. We don’t even expect them to tell the truth anymore. Generally however, we don’t expect them to track down meme makers online and threaten to dox them on one of the largest cable news networks in America.
That’s exactly what CNN just did though. CNN targeted Reddit user HanAssholeSolo because he took credit for a meme posted by President Donald Trump. A meme in which a scene from a World Wrestling Entertainment skit featuring Trump had CNN’s logo superimposed on the face of someone Trump skillfully beat the tar out of. If they had left it alone, everybody would have forgotten about it in 24 hours, but the liberal media wanted their pound of flesh.
Communists everywhere insisted this retweeted gif was an open call to start lynching lügenpresse agents on sight. They flooded wires and airwaves with hyperbole that made the Radical Agenda look like NPR. Rather than dissuading Trump’s army of shitposters however, it predictably resulted in the mass proliferation of violent anti-CNN and Pro-Trump memes, many of which were well catalogued by Mike Cernovich.
Like any prepubescent child, CNN threw a temper tantrum over the ridicule. They tracked down the original meme maker on reddit. They found out his other posts had what they described as “racist and anti-Semitic imagery”. They found out his true identity, and then they blackmailed him into removing all his prior posts and promising never to do it again. If he does, CNN says they reserve the right to publicize his true identity, and destroy his life.
If the election coverage hadn’t proven beyond a doubt that these networks are little more than propaganda factories, perhaps people will stop taking their journalism credentials seriously now that they are literally doxxing reddit users for making fun of them online. They insist that Trump’s tweet was inciting violence against journalists, but when journalists decide to go interfering with the lives of private citizens, we all know who to blame when someone gets hurt.
