Wall Street Journal Gives Platform To ‘Conservative’ Who Wants White Working Class to Die Off



The Wall Street Journal has finally found a “conservative” whom they are willing to give a platform.

Kevin D. Williamson recently made headlines when he was hired away from the all-but-dead National Review to write “conservative” opinions at the leftist rag The Atlantic. The notorious #NeverTrumper was hilariously fired just weeks later for writing a conservative opinion. Who could have seen that coming?

In response, he was given a platform in the The Wall Street Journal to complain about his experience. In an article titled “When the Twitter Mob Came For Me,” Williamson whined about the public backlash to the anti-abortion article that led to his firing.

The once-renowned Wall Street Journal seems to have found a conservative whom they can tolerate – one who has openly celebrated the death of the white working class.

In a bizarre piece written for the National Review in February, 2017, shortly after the inauguration of President Donald J. Trump, Williamson bashed those who care about the plight of the white working class in America as “non-conservative.” The article was called “America’s ‘White Working Class’ Needs to Move (On).”

“No conservative social critic ever blinked an eye or coughed up his cognac when the best advice from the right to the discontented and ambitious poor was to get out of the ghetto or the barrio, get an education, get a job, and start a new life and a new family in some more prosperous corner of the county or country,” he wrote. “But the dead and dying and white towns of Appalachia and the Rust Belt are another story. ‘Why should they have to go elsewhere?’ our freshly created populists demand.”

There are several complex answers to this question: Declining mobility since the 1980’s being one of them. Excessive mortgage debt (brought to us by the “true conservatives” in the Bush administration) is another.

But Williamson was bent on a bizarre attempt at white-knighting for the urban poor and lashing out at Trump’s message of reviving rural working-class communities in middle America. So far, Trump’s plan has worked, and the market has boomed accordingly, much to the disdain of “true conservatives” like Williamson.

In the same vein, he wrote a piece called “White Working Class Populism and Conservatism are Incompatible.”

The message was basically the same – the manufacturing jobs aren’t coming back, so bug off, hillbillies. As if lowering corporate tax rates to entice manufacturers to move back to America, which Trump has done, is somehow non-conservative.

“White people acting white have embraced the ethic of the white underclass, which is distinct from the white working class, which has the distinguishing feature of regular gainful employment,” he wrote. “The manners of the white underclass are Trump’s — vulgar, aggressive, boastful, selfish, promiscuous, consumerist.”

These elitist snobs have nothing but contempt for average people, and they wonder why they are universally hated, but the left and right alike. With “conservatives” like this, who needs liberals? Williamson does not understand the working-class, and has no business writing opinions on it. The working class does not sit around sipping cognac all day and theorizing, and are gladly accepting jobs that are becoming available to them thanks to the Trump administration.

As for Williamson’s white hate, firing from The Atlantic, and whining in The Wall Street Journal, maybe he should take his own advice and just move on.

Democrat Congressman BLOCKS U.S. Veterans After Saying Strzok Deserves Purple Heart



After receiving massive blowback and criticism for proclaiming that disgraced FBI agent Peter Strzok deserves a purple heart, Congressman Steve Cohen, a Democrat who represents Tennessee’s 9th Congressional District, has decided to block Veterans who are responding to his ignorant remarks on Twitter.

During Strzok’s Congressional testimony on Thursday, Rep. Cohen sparked outrage when he told disgraced FBI agent Peter Strzok that he should be awarded a Purple Heart.

“If I could give you a Purple Heart, I would. You deserve one. This has been an attack on you, in a way to attack Mr. Mueller, in the investigation that is to get at Russia collusion involved in our election,” Rep. Cohen said.
Cohen’s belief that Strzok deserves a Purple Heart, one of the highest military decorations that is awarded in the name of the US president to members of the military who are wounded or killed in any action against an enemy of the United States, quickly sparked outrage online by people who knew better than to make such a disrespectful and insulting comparison.

After receiving a lot of backlash the day following the testimony, Cohen said he now regrets what he said. “I regret using the term ‘Purple Heart.’ I used it metaphorically, not literally. I never thought literally it should be given to Agent Strzok.”

Instead of apologizing to Veterans who fought and risked their lives for our country, Rep. Cohen is using the block feature on Twitter so that Veterans and other critics can’t respond to Rep. Cohen.

Rep. Cohen has blocked so many veterans that a Twitter user created a Twitter page for all of the people, mostly veterans, who have been blacked by Cohen.

Hundreds of users took to Twitter on Saturday morning to explain why they are blocked by Rep. Cohen with the hashtag #HeBlockedMeToo.


“I wish my four surgeries to rebuild me were metaphoric. You owe us an apology, not a clarification of the words you used,” one U.S. Veteran tweeted.

One user tweeted, “I told him the story of how my uncle got his Purple Heart in Vietnam & died from Agent Orange. Told him he owed Veterans a very public apology. He blocked me.”

Despite these heartfelt messages from twitter users whose family members received the Purple Heart and veterans who were wounded in war, Rep. Cohen has continued to block people, blocking
Generals, Colonels, members of Congress and wounded Veterans.

US Army veteran Mark Footerman, who is also a fellow for Hill Vets, an organization that encourages veterans to create global impact tweeted, “Member of Congress, Rep. Cohen, has blocked me, an Army veteran, for criticizing his deeply disturbing statement that Peter Strzok deserves a Purple Heart because he has sat through a tough congressional hearing.”

A female combat veteran tweeted, “I was blocked but @RepCohen is a coward…this female Marine Veteran will call TN Rep Steve Cohen a coward all day @RepCohen is a coward #RepCohenIsACowardlyDemrat Democrats can’t handle the truth.”

James T, A US Air Force Veteran tweeted, “Funny, I just checked and I’m blocked too and I’ve never tweeted about him or to him. Maybe he blocks all veterans. What an ass.”

A wounded combat veteran tweeted, “This is what happens when a wounded vet stands up to a Congressman who wants to give a Purple Heart to lying, narcissistic cheater. Apparently, he [Rep.Cohen] hates Veterans.”

One user who said they only created Twitter so that they could reply to Cohen’s outrageous comments said they were immediately blocked by the Congressman. “I joined Twitter so that my voice would get through to @RepCohen. Looks like it did. He blocked me 1 hour and 30 min after I created my Twitter account.”

Cohen’s belief that Strzok deserves a Purple Heart, one of the highest military decorations that is awarded in the name of the US president to members of the military who are wounded or killed in any action against an enemy of the United States, quickly sparked outrage online by people who knew better than to make such a disrespectful and insulting comparison.

Not only was Rep. Cohen’s statement a slap in the face to all service men and women who have fought and served for the United States, but his intentional blocking of Veterans suggests that he has no respect or consideration for US veterans. On top of being anti-Veteran, anti-American, and anti-free speech, Rep. Cohen’s actions may have him in direct violation of the law. In May, a federal district court judge ruled that President Trump can’t block people from following his Twitter account. According to the judge, elected officials who block tweets with differing opinions constitutes viewpoint discrimination, which violates the First Amendment.

Thus, if President Trump cannot block twitter users who have opposing views, neither can Rep. Cohen, who is also an elected US politician.

Rep. Cohen’s office did not reply with a request for comment as to why the Democrat Congressman is intentionally blocking US veterans and Conservatives on Twitter.

Here is a collection of tweets from other US veterans and twitter users who also took to social media to ask why they had been blocked by Rep.Cohen.
