Ace of Spades richly deserves the Shiv of the Week award for this post in which he takes a steaming dump on Brian Stelter’s penishead and notes that transparency has starkly exposed the lying, malicious, corrupt, leftoid shills which populate every tier of the chaimstream media.
As Mollie Hemingway has said several times, Twitter did improve transparency, and that transparency in turn reduced trust in media.
You showed yourselves for what you really are. We noticed. We adjusted our estimates of you according to the new information.
The thing is, what twitter exposed was not that you were leftwing. We already new that.
What twitter exposed was that you were also dumb, easily duped, eager to believe self-justifying conspiracy theories, thin-skinned, arrogant, incompetent, disgracefully lazy, psychologically (and almost certainly physically) inadequate, dunderheadedly unimaginative and unwilling to consider any idea not within the braindead leftwing Incela Corridor Conventional Wisdom Bubble, prone to the most cowardly go-along-to-get-along sort of groupthink, and weak.
Before Twitter, you were removed from us. Anyone who’s removed seems exalted. We knew you were leftwing political operators, but, and I hate to admit this, your remoteness made you seem like you were… elite.
Now we’ve seen what you really are. You’re C- minus students and fat-assed pencil pushers with a nose for sniffing out the right dicks to suck.
You’re fucking pathetic. You’re Salon Commenters with a personal makeup budget.
That’s what Twitter revealed.
Ace is proof that a person becomes a better writer and thinker when the veil of lies is lifted and forced politeness and aversion to hard truths is abandoned. If I didn’t know better, I’d think Ace was on the precipice of tangling with the [Special Person] Question.
I like to believe I had a positive, osmotic effect on all these newly minted shivlords.
You did, but no one will ever admit it. But don’t feel bad, you escaped Cassandra’s fate. She had the gift of prophecy but was cursed because no one would listen to her. People have listened to you but your curse is, you’ll never get the credit.
If I have helped birth a revolution, I can live without the credit.
PS It’s all on-topic, every last jot and tittle. Pat Buchanan had a couple of great articles this week, one on the separation of political victories from policy victories, and the second on the Democreeps’ descent into nauseating pandering to their black voters, and slandering of America’s heritage.
PPS Dems today:

My heart breaks. No really, it does, I swear it.
