A Virginia radio host who served as the state’s Chairman for the Donald J. Trump presidential campaign in 2016 voted for racist Democrat Gov. Ralph Northam, and recently bucked the same populist movement that elected Trump.
“I voted for State Senator Ralph Northam for Democratic Lieutenant Governor nominee,” John Fredericks said in 2013.
Fredericks now hosts a syndicated radio show.
“Northam has a solid reputation for being approachable and open to dissenting dialogue. And he is not shy about working with legislators on both sides of the aisle to do what he believes is the right thing,” he continued. “Bottom-line: you can have a meaningful conversation with him, regardless of your political differences.”
Fredericks was obviously dead wrong about Northam. Both sides of the political aisle are trying to have a “meaningful conversation” about Northam’s resignation after Big League Politics outed him as a blackface or KKK hood-wearing racist. Northam has refused to answer to anyone.
After endorsements from prominent Republicans like Fredericks in his bid for Lieutenant Governor, Northam moved up the ranks quickly, winning the state’s governorship in 2017.
Fredericks’ transgressions do not end with his vote for Northam, though.
In December, he was quoted in The Washington Post bashing Republican U.S. Senate nominee Corey Stewart, Virginia’s torch-bearer of the same populist movement that propelled Trump to the presidency.
“This party has to have a public exorcism of Corey Stewart — complete with holy water and green vomit,” he told the paper.
Fredericks provided no explanation for his shapeshifting, but presumably he bought into the fake press narrative that Stewart is a “racist.” This, after he voted for an actual racist. The Republican Party of Virginia – which missed some great opposition research against Northam and Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax who stands accused of two rapes – was grieving after it rolled over to leftists in the mainstream press and only tepidly backed Stewart in his 2018 run against Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Va.). Ironically, the party feared being labeled as “racists” while governor of the state received a pass for actual racism, and his lieutenant received a pass for alleged sexual assault.
At what point will the GOP tire of being lapped by Democrats? Is there even a point to having a Republican party if it simply operates on all of the premises established by the political left and their ilk in the mainstream press?
Virginia, once again, will be a key battleground state for Trump in 2020.
Fredericks avoided BLP’s poignant questions about his vote for Northam and rebuke of Stewart, and instead said that he voted for Ed Gillespie in the 2017 gubernatorial race against Northam – three years after voting for Northam in a primary. He also said that he would not “re-litigate the failed Corey Stewart for Senate campaign,” and touted the size of his radio show.

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.
Is this the kind of "news" that needs to be saved? This looks like state TV to me. (P.S. why do you have the comments restricted? Can't take criticism?)https://t.co/LyzHr811jh

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.
