What is extremism?
I’ve been labeled a “rightwing extremist” by the media. I sit in my house and comment on the news on social media. I share takes about politics, history, culture and other topics on my blog. I have a wife, a son and a dog and I reject violence.
I’ve been branded an “extremist” for ridiculing progressive and conservative liberals and banned from social media for rejecting conventional politics. In August, The Washington Post said that the White Nationalist threat was equal to the threat posed by ISIS.
So how does The Washington Post describe the leader of ISIS?
Now look at these other extremists.
This is how The Washington Post describes Twitter trolls and Ed Gillespie who used to be the milquetoast chairman of the RNC. It should make you think.
The fake news is more willing to label Ed Gillespie an “extremist” than Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. This is how skewed the perspective of “journalists” has become.
