Glenn Greenwald: The Journalistic Tattletale and Censorship Industry Suffers Several Well-Deserved Blows

I won’t pretend to understand these people.

They are humorless, hypersensitive, unfriendly middle class scolds and hall monitors who are obsessed with policing thoughts and words. They are the sworn enemy of all independent minded people. This is why the public hates them and nothing is more unifying among Trump voters.

These people are massive control freaks who are obsessed with micromanaging things which ultimately don’t matter as opposed to practical political goals like changing public policy. They assume that their own personal opinions, attitudes and tastes can be the standard of morality for over 300 million people, conflate the political arena with the moral sphere and sit in judgement of people on that basis. These people are enraged by slight differences of opinion even with other Americans on the Left. It is politically toxic and self defeating behavior. The Wokelash is coming and it is going to be epic.

Glenn Greenwald:

“A new and rapidly growing journalistic “beat” has arisen over the last several years that can best be described as an unholy mix of junior high hall-monitor tattling and Stasi-like citizen surveillance. It is half adolescent and half malevolent. Its primary objectives are control, censorship, and the destruction of reputations for fun and power. Though its epicenter is the largest corporate media outlets, it is the very antithesis of journalism.

I’ve written before about one particularly toxic strain of this authoritarian “reporting.” Teams of journalists at three of the most influential corporate media outlets — CNN’s “media reporters” (Brian Stelter and Oliver Darcy), NBC’s “disinformation space unit” (Ben Collins and Brandy Zadrozny), and the tech reporters of The New York Times (Mike Isaac, Kevin Roose, Sheera Frenkel) — devote the bulk of their “journalism” to searching for online spaces where they believe speech and conduct rules are being violated, flagging them, and then pleading that punitive action be taken (banning, censorship, content regulation, after-school detention). These hall-monitor reporters are a major factor explaining why tech monopolies, which (for reasons of self-interest and ideology) never wanted the responsibility to censor, now do so with abandon and seemingly arbitrary blunt force: they are shamed by the world’s loudest media companies when they do not. …

But this is now the prevailing ethos in corporate journalism. They have insufficient talent or skill, and even less desire, to take on real power centers: the military-industrial complex, the CIA and FBI, the clandestine security state, Wall Street, Silicon Valley monopolies, the corrupted and lying corporate media outlets they serve. So settling on this penny-ante, trivial bullshit — tattling, hall monitoring, speech policing: all in the most anti-intellectual, adolescent and primitive ways — is all they have. It’s all they are. It’s why they have fully earned the contempt and distrust in which the public holds them. …”

These people say that I am the “bigot.”

The term “bigot” was coined to describe fanatics who have their mindset. They get off on hunting down, censoring and destroying the lives of other people. I’m easy going compared to these people. I truly don’t give a shit what other people believe. Just look at the comment section on this website.

Why do these people act like this? Isn’t this supposed to be America? We used to pride ourselves on our republican political culture. It didn’t matter what another citizen thought about any given issue. It was their right to express their viewpoint. This was a free country. Those who disagreed could express their viewpoint and mutual respect allowed people to agree to disagree on various issues.

At some point though, millions of people began moving away from our traditions, losing their religion and losing touch with traditional morality and substituting in their place the -isms and -phobias of political correctness and became little tyrants and started organizing themselves into witch hunting mobs. It began with the rise of modernism which romanticized the interior world of the self and the ideal of self-actualization. Modernists became obsessed with the “transformation of consciousness.” Subsequent generations grafted on critical theory and repressive tolerance, which became political correctness, and then postmodernism and “social justice” crusading, which emerged as wokeness. It was this series of steps that led to the libertine authoritarian who is tormented by his inner Freudian psychologist.

Note: I share Andrew Anglin’s hatred of these people. Although I don’t care for Andrew Anglin, Nick Fuentes or Ricky Vaughn, I have never said that they should be censored, arrested or personally harmed.

  1. The White Liberal Greedy Cheating Class….that’s who these creatures are….subhuman morons(the late Brother Theodore once used this insult on David Letterman on the David Letterman show)…..are attempting to murder off RUSSIA…..SYRIA…..AND THE HISTORIC NATIVE BORN WHITE AMERICAN WORKING CLASS……Do they have any idea of what they are provoking?

    Another gruesome slaughter of the Orthodox Christian Russian speaking population in the Donbass region in the Ukraine….and the Iskander missile block busters will wipe out the US Special Forces aiding the Azov Brigade in the Ukraine….leading to an escalation that could lead to NUCLEAR WW3 in two weeks after the initial contact between the Russian Military and the HOMOSEXUAL PEDERAST US SPECIAL FORCES IN THE UKRAINE….

    MARY PHAGAN….MAY YOU REST IN ETERNAL PEACE….

    • Letterman had the most interesting guests. That includes musical guest as well, such as Captain Beefheart.

  2. Again false.

    All societies consolidate hegemony on some level and practice some lower case form of totalitarianism via control of institutions and holders of office.

    Whether that’s White America that enforced racial nationalism was part of every school, corporation, government office known to man. Or some Multicultural America that plasters diversity in every school, corporation, government office known to man. Whether that is America’s Liberalism itself that plasters liberty, freedom, democracy in every school, corporation, government office known to man. Liberalism (and its ideological descendants) just live in a delusion that it doesn’t engage in (low t) totalitarianism and presents itself to others that it doesn’t. It’s just less honest than true (capital T) Totalitarianism.

    Even free speech advocates must engage in (low t) totalitarianism order their uphold their ideas of free speech via control of institutions (but will be undermined because is a force that creates change) or others will clamp down on speech that goes against their ideals.

    All societies (and peoples) have their absolute and their sacred. That which is higher and more important than them and must spread to every facet of society. Their ideal is all encompassing and absolute. And ramifications for those who don’t adhere when the adherents/commissars alarm their faction who hold the institutions of power.

    You’re an amalgamation Hunter. A Nationalist with only a slight flirtation with Fascism in your questioning of Nationalism’s sufficiency on demographics like Japan, but still retain a lot your Liberalism (like views on Free Speech). Nationalism is still committed to Liberalism despite its reactionary flair, with live-let-live illusionary mentality, unwilling to accept the world where speech is not isolated onto itself (like Nations) and if we can all individually recluse and respect each other within our own enclaves of different speech/ideas (like Nations).

    Ideologies seek to dominate and adherents seek to spread its ideas to every facet of society in struggle against other ideologies vying for institutional power and the direction in which humanity heads.

    • “Ideologies seek to dominate”

      No it is humans that do that. Ideologies are just words.

      The word “populist” is being used to mean “policies in the interests of regular middle class white Americans” – it is not some Universal Ideal of “Populism.”

      But this is how the system works – they try to bury people’s material interests in a barrage of words called an “ideology.”

  3. How far have we fallen?

    The city of Minneapolis is in the planning stages of a massive, larger than life statue of George Floyd.

    The mayor said that the statue would be “a noble monument to the wonderful, exemplary life” of George Floyd. He sounded as if they were going to honor a war hero or a Christian saint who worked with the poor, instead of a violent convicted felon who went to prison 8 different times for serious crimes.

    When a nation chooses its “heroes” from a rouges gallery of violent criminals who never did anything with their lives except get high and rob people to get more drugs, that nation is finished as a great power or even a unified society. How many people in the US or even just Minnesota support the building of a larger than life statue of a violent black criminal? I’m guessing less than 10%.

    I have heard stories that this planned memorial/statue will be twice the size of the Columbus statue they tore down in Saint Paul; and that was a huge statue.

    • Where is the money coming from for this 100 foot tall monstrosity of a statue? I’m guessing from the White man’s taxes and the corporate shakedown racket that was so effective last year. No doubt the scumbag politicians will be there at its dedication, down on all fours, groveling and licking the asses of the local negroes. What an inspiration.

      Will the 100 foot tall statue of Saint George Floyd, patron saint of fentanyl users show him with his mighty arm outstretched, middle finger up in the air and a menacing sneer on his ugly countenance, a plastic bag with an ounce of fentanyl at his feet? That would be appropriate.

    • I heard somewhere that Baltimore was planning on taking down a statue of a Confederate soldier to put up a statue of some transvestite that was in John Waters movies. I don’t know if this was actually done. But it shows how sick many of these people are and how divorced they’ve become from common sense and any practical reality.

  4. A century ago, George Santayana, increasingly blackpilled about living in America (he eventually bailed on Burgerland for Mussolini’s Italy), claimed that Calvinist religion believes that sin exists, that sin deserves to be punished, and that it is beautiful when sin is punished.

    That’s pretty much all we saw in 2020 — the gung-ho cop, the sado-masochistic reactions to George Floyd’s demise, the Qtards, the election campaign, and now the reaction to the Capitol siege. Intellectual life in America’s highest academic institutions, Santayana complained (in 1920!) has not the spirit of science nor intellect, but duty. Mencken made similar observations around the same time — Americans care more about fighting bugaboos than real issues, American voters have no ideas but only vote against the other side, etc.

    “Most merciful God, we confess that we are in bondage to sin and cannot free ourselves. We have sinned against you in thought, word, and deed, by what we have done and by what we have left undone. We have not loved you with our whole heart; we have not loved our neighbors as ourselves…”

    Our traditions are alive and well; the McDeath Star is fully operational.

  5. 90% either strongly agree or somewhat agree that America is the greatest country in the world? Fucking retards,Put me in the 2% strongly disagree column.

  6. “Subsequent generations grafted on critical theory and repressive tolerance, which became political correctness, and then postmodernism and “social justice” crusading, which emerged as wokeness.”

    I think it’s way simpler.

    The left fell down on the everything it nurture side, in the nature or nurture debate around social differences before WW2, mostly because there were formal discrimination going on against women and blacks at the time. Next came the post-colonial debate, where the nurture side won hegemony, and we got the explanation that the non-white countries were poor because of colonization and exploitation from the white world.

    Colonization stopped and most non-white countries stayed poor, and formal discrimination against women and minorities stopped as well, and the group differences continued.

    What was now the mainstream now had two options, admit that the racists and sexists were correct, or they could double down, and claim that the observable differences were caused by forms of word based oppression.

    The first was not an option for anybody in academia or the media, as the racists and sexists had been purged from the mainstream, rather than convinced, so any defector to the “all differences stem from differences in nurture” orthodoxy was purged as well.

    Cleaning up the language and trying to integrate women and minorities to end the racism and sexism by letting everybody experience that we really are all the same did not remove the observable differences, and then the real woke insanity began. Only lunacy like the patriarchy, institutionalized racism and such were left as explanations, and the only way to remove this was by actual censorship and punishment of the ones that spread the racism and sexism virus to others.

  7. Bigotry is hatred without reason. The Jews like to throw that one around all the time, as if there is not a good enough reason already for hating those who killed Gods only son.

    • And the why you counter the Jew accusation of “bigot” is—-Why do you hate Christ? What was his crime? Why do you hate an innocent man who did know wrong, Christ killer?

      These are the three Jew identifier words—

      Nazi
      bigot
      the Romans killed Christ

      Those kykes do not call me bigot and get away with it, I will tell you that. Yeah I am a hater but I got a reason for hating the fzxcking the Jew, they persecute and torment the weak and the innocent, they killed the innocent Christ. And I hate their fzxcking guts.

  8. This is actually a really good article from Greenwald, I’ve never been a fan.

    I hope they keep canceling each other. It is WONDERFUL to see some Zionist Jew at the New York Times get fired by some crazy-assed “SJW of Color” or whatever for using a bad word or failing to applause long enough – or whatever.

    It’s great. It’s hilarious and entertaining and I hope they keep it up until NYT goes out of business. I haven’t read NYT since they published Judith Miller’s false Israeli propaganda about 9/11 and “WMDs.”

  9. There’s no such thing as journalism in the media anymore. It’s all about reading what the jews put on the teleprompter. There’s no investigation, just idiots repeating the lies put forth by their masters. They’re slaves and don’t even realize it.

  10. That “Jen Psaki” is the public face of these people. I have a feeling she is going to become one of the most hated people in America. She just represents the arrogance of these young, privileged, inexperienced, elitist females telling the rest of us how to live. A hall room monitor, puritan scold, Maoist cultural revolution tormentor.

    • I’ve shared the videos, but I haven’t watched a single one of her press conferences. I think it is good to have people like her in there. It will have a positive effect in the long run because they will alienate everyone.
