George Will Hates The Liberals So Much, All Of Them, For Their Non-Existent Issue

News

George Will was one of those Intellectual Conservatives who was championed by the Liberals for his courageous, journalistic act of questioning Sarah Palin's ability to run the country, which she would have had to do when John McCain died on his third day in office. Will, naturally, was labeled a big city fairy who never would have had the courage to raise a Down Syndrome baby, except for the Down Syndrome baby that he did in fact raise. Well all that election nonsense is over, right, so Will was apparently trying to build back his conservative "base" points with yesterday's bizarre wingnut rant about the fuckin' liberals and their obvious plans to reinstate the Fairness Doctrine, which the liberals have no intention of reinstating.


You can tell it will be a bad George Will column if he doesn't trace the contemporary issue at hand to some mid-11th century British common law ruling within the first four sentences:

Reactionary liberalism, the ideology of many Democrats, holds that inconvenient rights, such as secret ballots in unionization elections, should be repealed; that existing failures, such as GM, should be preserved; and, with special perversity, that repealed mistakes, such as the "fairness doctrine," should be repeated. That Orwellian name was designed to disguise the doctrine's use as the government's instrument for preventing fair competition in the broadcasting of political commentary.

Ahh, well that blanket should cover just about everything. No! More!

If reactionary liberals, unsatisfied with dominating the mainstream media, academia and Hollywood, were competitive on talk radio, they would be uninterested in reviving the fairness doctrine. Having so sullied liberalism's name that they have taken to calling themselves progressives, liberals are now ruining the reputation of reactionaries, which really is unfair.

As Matt Yglesias said yesterday, in about as succinct a fashion as this crap deserves, "Nobody is trying to revive the fairness doctrine. I’m not sure how many times this can be said."

On the other hand, maybe liberal reactionary Matt Yglesias is trying to revive the fairness doctrine with his Hollywood friends, which really is unfair.

A guest post by "Knitsy McPurlson," which we suspect is not a real name.

Yr Wonkette is not the only website run by brilliant peoples unafraid to poke people with sharp, pointy sticks. Ravelry.com – a website for knitters, crocheters, and other folks interested in textiles and fiber arts – is poking people with knitting needles, which are very sharp indeed.

This past weekend, Ravelry.com's founders showed the world how easy it is to de-platform white nationalists and racists when they banned all "support of Donald Trump and his administration" from their website, concluding they "cannot provide a space that is inclusive of all and also allow support for open white supremacy." Seems like people smart enough to decode a knitting pattern are also smart enough to decode Trump's not-so-hidden message of racism and white nationalism.

One day, God willing, my grandchildren will click open their history textbooks and read about the Central American migrant internment camps. They'll learn about sick kids, locked in cages, kept hungry and dirty and cold for weeks on end, and they'll be horrified.

"Bubbie," they'll say, "how could this happen in America? How could there be toddlers sleeping on the ground without blankets, without soap or toothbrushes to clean themselves?"

"I don't know. I wish I had done more. I'm ashamed," I'll say. We will all have to answer for this atrocity. But some of us will have to answer more than others. Not just the archvillains like Stephen Miller and John Kelly, but the people who kept right on doing their jobs, even as those jobs morphed into defending concentration camps.
