I wish to extend my deepest gratitude to the Huffington Post
for the article about Steven Crowder's alleged inane CPAC comment about rape
) because it illustrates perfectly the left's devious ways of reporting about the news in general and about conservatives in particular.
The person who made an inane comment
about rape was NOT Steven Crowder;
it was ASHLEY JUDD!
In case you're interested, “Ashley Judd … tweeted that purchasing apple products is akin to rape" (Oh, and by the way, "the intelligent, young, successful and beautiful Ms. Judd" tweeted that comment from… "her iPhone”!)
Hence the Huffington Post
hence Steven Crowder's mockery.
hence Steven Crowder's like-minded
That's right: Crowder's reason for mentioning rape
was the exact same
as the Huffington Post
's reason for writing about rape,
i.e., not to make
an inane comment about the crime,
but to highlight a VIP's inane comment about the crime.
1) the Huffington Post
got it (deliberately?) wrong;
Crowder got the identity of the "idiot" (for want of a better word) correctly
while Ariana Huffington's article got it wrong (indeed, what it did
in a sense amounted to — gleefully — shooting the messenger)
And this brings us to the next point:
Ashley Judd is a liberal making an inane rape comment, and — BECAUSE
she was comparing a hideous crime to the ultra-evil nightmarish capitalistic system, it turned out that, indeed, there was
no outrage, either at the time or later (now), from the Huffington Post or from other liberals. (Indeed, that's the reason why I felt it necessary to add: "In case you're interested"…)
And when a conservative makes a comment not
about rape per se but
about an inane comment
about rape (Ashley Judd's),
the left went,
Gotcha! — now we can do our usual bit,
ignore the backstory completely and pin this on those awful, terrible, heartless conservatives!
: Good Deed Department — Thank you for going to the Huffington Post's original reporting (sic) of this event and favoriting my similar-sounding comment
(not for my sake, but for Steve's and, yes, for the entire conservative movement's)…
