Customers of CRTV are unhappy after the company merged with BlazeTV to create BlazeMedia and conservative star Gavin McInnes was dropped from the new lineup.
“Blaze Media no longer has a relationship with Gavin McInnes, and per company policy, cannot comment on personnel matters,” the company said on Twitter.

Many right-wingers reacted harshly to the decision, vowing to cancel their subscriptions to the new service, and blaming Blaze founder Glenn Beck, a bona fide Trump hater, for McInnes’ firing.
“The new Blaze is already going up in flames. Glenn Beck ruins everything he touches,” said conservative YouTube star Mark Dice.
“I have already cancelled due to this terrible decision,” said Twitter user @JamesBrownInc.

McInnes is a controversial figure inasmuch as he founded the Proud Boys, a fraternal group of Trump-supporting nationalists. Blaze dropping McInnes represents the network’s move towards the political center, towards the pre-Trump brand of establishment conservatism which longs for the approval of the political left and will sacrifice conservative principles in order to pass the bad faith tests of its political adversaries.
Michelle Malkin, conservative firebrand and leading figure in the Trump movement, announced her departure from the network shortly after the merger.
“I am so proud of the investigative journalism I did for CRTV,” she said on Twitter. “So many heroes, so many compelling stories. I will not be continuing with the company, but wish my colleagues all the best.”

Former CRTV executive Gaston Mooney, who will serve as co-president of Blaze Media, gave no sign that the network who disassociate with McInnes in the days after the merger.
Leftist Group Pickets Outside of Senator Josh Hawley’s Home Demanding GOP Accept Electoral College Certification
A group of left-wing militants protested outside of Senator Josh Hawley’s Virginia home on Monday night, threatening to harass Republicans for declining to sign off on contested electoral college slates. The professional progressive activists, affiliated with Shutdown DC, demanded that Hawley relent on a plan to challenge ratification of the electoral college.

Shutdown DC has become known for aggressive and personalized harassment protest tactics, with members of the organization “protesting” outside of Tucker Carlson’s house and ringing his doorbell in 2018. The small crowd of protestors spoke of appearing on the streets of DC on Tuesday, when thousands of Donald Trump supporters will protest at the capitol demanding that Republican Senators and Congressmen delay the certification of electors from contested states.
One man in an orange hat threatened to protest outside of Hawley’s house every day.
“He should be ready for us to come back and visit him if he doesn’t abandon his dangerous, reckless, self-serving, racist attack on our democracy!”
The ShutDownDC protestors warned Hawley of their harassment tactics in a chant.
“We’ll be back! We’ll be back! We’ll be back!”
Local police arrived on the scene within minutes of the protestor’s arrival at the private residence. The mob was allowed to go through with their stunt, yelling into megaphones late into the night in the suburban neighborhood. They loitered on the sidewalk for about an hour before leaving.
The group littered at the scene, leaving placards with progressive mantras on the ground outside of Hawley’s house as they left. They weren’t cited.
Belligerent progressives are likely to continue the use of aggressive harassment tactics even after Donald Trump’s presidency, with Biden all but certain to be inaugurated as President later this month.
