After Attacking Fred Trump, Daily Beast Doesn’t Want You To Attack Pete Buttigieg’s Father

Once again, the corporate media attempts to change the rules of the game.

Published

A left wing conspiracy theory website that spent considerable time and effort smearing President Donald J. Trump’s father, Fred, is now upset at those criticizing the openly Marxist father of presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg.

“Evidently the father’s sins are to be passed down automatically to the offspring,” said The Daily Beast said in an opinion piece called “The Grotesque Red-Baiting of Mayor Pete Buttigieg.”

The author took offense to a news story published by The Washington Examiner, which noted that Buttigieg’s father, Joseph, was Marxist professor who “lauded the communist manifesto.” The attack on Joseph did not sit well with the op-ed writer over at The Daily Beast.

“Only in the time of Trumpist demagoguery, it seems, are self-proclaimed conservatives and Trump supporters ready and willing to go back in time to the most foolish and inane attacks from a sordid era in our nation’s past,” the author proclaimed.

Except the site did the exact same thing to Trump and his father in March of 2016. Not only is this trend tried and true, but The Daily Beast gladly took part in it during the good old days during the Trump campaign.

“Fred Trump had at one point been charged with seeking to overcharge veterans for subsidized housing,” the left wing rag reported. “He also had been the subject of front-page allegations that he had run up millions in overcharges in a government-funded project. He had denied it all and had not been criminally charged. Now he would show them all with Trump’s triumph by the sea.”

Those remarks about Trump’s father came in the context of a piece which accused Fred Trump of trying to “kill Coney Island,” published as a hit on Trump during his presidential campaign.

There was no hand-wringing about whether attacks on the father of a presidential candidate were in bounds from The Daily Beast back in those days. After all, they had a job to do – smear Trump into oblivion and derail his campaign.

Per usual for the leftist corporate media, they failed. Now they want to change the rules.

New York Times Writer Blames Evangelical Christians for Chinese Coronavirus

Not China’s Communist Party.

Published

on

A New York Times writer published a column largely assigning blame for America’s Chinese coronavirus epidemic on Evangelical Christians.

In Stewart’s column, titled ‘The Religious Right’s Hostility to Science is Crippling Our Coronavirus Response,’ she frames conservative Christians for a supposed lacking national effort to contain the disease. Stewart alleges that Christians within the administration are preventing the federal government from recognizing ‘science,’ repeating a trope long alleged by liberals that their political opponents are supposedly ignorant of the discipline.
In the article, Stewart claims that “Donald Trump rose to power with the determined assistance of a movement that denies science, bashes government and prioritized loyalty over professional expertise. In the current crisis, we are all reaping what that movement has sown.”

She fails that recognize that scientific experts on viral outbreaks such as Dr. Anthony Fauci have informed the federal government’s response since the beginning of the crisis.

Stewart fails to mention that it was progressive liberals across the world who largely opposed international travel bans, a scientifically verifiable means of virus transmission and spread. The European Union lagged well behind the United States and Canada in placing curbs on travel across borders.

Perhaps most egregiously, she fails to even so much as assign any culpability for America’s coronavirus epidemic on the Chinese Communist Party, which failed to so much as even admit the scale of the problem as the disease first took the form of a true public health pandemic in China. The CCP’s negligent cover-up of the coronavirus epidemic in undoubtedly the most ‘unscientific’ governmental approach to the virus, with grave consequences. And China’s authoritarian leaders are by no means conservative Christians.

Stewart’s reaching move to blame Evangelicals for the coronavirus outbreak in America is merely a reactionary take from a cultural liberal seeking to impute political commentary in the midst of a pandemic.
