A crazed liberal who harassed a Trump supporter in a “Make America Great Again” hat at a restaurant before publicizing the incident in a Twitter post has been revealed as a former Democrat National Committee staffer.

TJ Helmstetter initially bragged about the incident before being piled on publicly for his unhinged, intolerant behavior. He then locked down his Twitter after realizing how badly he embarrassed himself in a series of posts.

In an op/ed that Helmstetter wrote for The Hill in 2017, he is credited in the byline as an employee “in the communications department of the Democratic National Committee from July 2015 until December 2016, ending the cycle as Associate Communications Director.”

His by-line indicated that Helmstetter is a veteran Democratic Party operative working in “communications efforts at the Progressive Change Campaign Committee, the Working Families Party, and three U.S. House races.”

In a subsequent post, Helmstetter described how the management of the Hill Country Barbecue and Market refused to kowtow to his demands after he called them demanding reprisal after the fact.

“Just called the manager there and his answer was “we are an equal opportunity restaurant who welcomes all political viewpoints” before hanging up on me. cool, except MAGA hats actually make clear that POC and LGBT are not welcome at all,” he wrote in a Tweet.

Helmstetter’s incomprehensible blow up is emblematic of the mass insanity that is taking hold within the Democratic Party. It is not a few bad liberal apples who have lost their marbles because of President Trump, but rather, the entire bunch has embraced senseless radicalism, and their extremism is threatening the safety of others.

BABY: CNN’s Brian Stelter Becomes Early Adapter of New Twitter ‘Disable Replies’ Feature

The mainstream media operative doesn’t want feedback.

CNN presenter Brian Stelter has become a quick adopter of a new Twitter feature that enables users to shut down replies to their tweets, essentially cutting off any potential for negative feedback and allowing unpopular verified journalists to propagate their own echo chambers.

The feature was implemented on Thursday by Twitter, and was roundly criticized by many of the platform’s users as a betrayal of the free-speech and democratic ideals the website originally stood for. The feature essentially allows verified and artificially promoted mainstream media personalities to escape criticism for dishonest reporting, lies, and political bias.

Stelter utilized the feature in a tweet about business challenges to the model of traditional print and local media. It would’ve gone without saying that his narrative would’ve been challenged by many Twitter users keen to point out that the erosion of traditional print media has coincided with rampant left-wing and institutional bias within the industry.

Replies to the tweet are disabled, but many users found a way to ensure that Stelter’s lightweight media proclivities were responded to in kind by those who are critical of cable mainstream media. Users who Stelter follows are able to reply to the tweet, and some who he deems acceptable within his own echo chamber were keen to call him out.

It’s almost certain that CNN hacks such as Stelter will continue to use the anti-democratic and elitist feature, hoping to shield themselves from accusations of dishonesty.

We’ve entered a new dark age of the internet where the original late 1990’s principles of free expression, intellectual curiosity, and open dialogue are being eroded by political and media elites terrified that their neoliberal vision for society is quickly becoming discredited. The ‘disable replies’ feature on Twitter is merely the latest indicator of such a phenomenon, but self-proclaimed ‘objective journalists’ such as Stelter might not prove as able to shut down criticism of themselves as they might hope.
