FLASHBACK: Joe Walsh Exploded at his Constituents in UNHINGED Rant at Town Hall

Walsh was simply outraged that his constituents had the audacity to blame the massive banks for the 2007 financial crisis.

One-term Republican Congressman Joe Walsh has mounted a primary challenge to President Donald Trump, and from the looks of it the tone of his campaign is completely out of touch with Republican voters.

But this wouldn’t be the first time Walsh has stood sharply in opposition to Republicans and conservatives.

The one-term Congressman, who was elected in a fluke in 2010 before being retired by now-Senator Tammy Duckworth, furiously exploded at some of his own constituents in an irate 2011 rant.

Walsh simply couldn’t believe that some of his constituents were blaming the executives of corporate mega-banks for setting off the 2007 financial crisis. He repeated a set of free market talking points, completely refusing to acknowledge that the banks had any role in crashing the economy, even though they accepted an unprecedented bailout from the middle-class taxpayer after gambling and losing everything.

Watch the hilariously out of touch rant here:

Don’t blame banks, and don’t blame the marketplace for the mess we’re in right now.

What a joke.

Walsh’s rant serves as a embarrassing reminder for conservatives that there was in fact a time where their political leaders simply refused to ever even consider the possibility of corporate power being malevolent or destructive. During the early stages of the 2007 crisis, many Republicans simply refused to assign even the slightest blame to the globalist corporations for the mess they played a crucial role in creating.

Conservatives have become far more willing to criticize the oligarchic alliance of big business and big government that created the 2007 crisis Walsh speaks of ever since Donald Trump’s revolutionary 2016 campaign.

Walsh seems just as committed today to the stale, false conventional wisdom he was heard furiously demanding his own constituents accept in his 2011 rant. We’ll see how such thinking plays out with Republican voters.

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

The mainstream media operative doesn’t want feedback.

Published

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.
