So right here was the decidedly false headline at The HuffPost

CNN Advertisers Silent On Rick Santorum’s Racist Feedback About Native People

Does anyone care about sharing airtime with a man who mentioned “nothing” existed in America earlier than white colonizers arrived?

This completely false piece of left wing propaganda by writers  Jennifer Bendery and Amanda Terkel, falsely accused Santorum, a CNN contributor, of racism. Then the 2 went on to demand silencing Santorum, by scripting this: 

On Monday, a CNN spokeswoman didn’t reply to yet one more request for remark ― for the fifth time ― about whether or not the community plans to maintain Santorum on contract.

So HuffPost contacted all 37 advertisers whose commercials aired throughout Cuomo’s present on Could 3 ― the night time he introduced on Santorum to defend his feedback. None of them returned a request for touch upon whether or not they have been snug having their adverts run on a present and community that welcomes Santorum as a commentator.

Right here’s an inventory of all of the advertisers who ran commercials throughout Cuomo’s Could 3 present:”

There have been 37 advertisers, all fastidiously listed beneath this demand to silence Santorum.

The place to start?

Final week on this house I made some extent of correcting the document on precisely what Rick Santorum had mentioned. Noting that the American Left has a infamous historical past for racism, I made some extent of what Santorum mentioned on Chris Cuomo’s present. It was this:

 Requested on Chris Cuomo’s present to debate what he mentioned, Chris mentioned this to Santorum: “This appeared such as you have been attempting to erase variety within the curiosity of some White Christian proper.”

To which Santorum responded this fashion, daring print provided for emphasis: 

“No, no, no, no, no. Simply to be clear, what I used to be not saying was that Native American tradition–I misspoke. What I used to be speaking about is, as you possibly can see from the run-up, I used to be speaking concerning the founding of our nation. I had given a protracted speak concerning the Structure, the Declaration of Independence, and the concepts behind these, and that I used to be saying we form of created that anew, if you’ll. 

And I used to be not attempting to dismiss Native People. In truth, I discussed them as a result of, sure, they have been right here and did have an effect. You’re proper. They’ve a big impact, significantly within the west and plenty of different areas of the nation, the place they’ve a big impact on American tradition. I used to be speaking about — and I misspoke on this respect — I used to be speaking concerning the founding and the rules embodied within the founding. I might by no means — and other people mentioned I’m attempting to dismiss what we did to the Native People, removed from it. The way in which we handled Native People was horrific.”

In different phrases, Santorum was simple, mentioned that he had “misspoke” and went on to make clear precisely that he would by no means…. dismiss what we did to the Native People, removed from it. The way in which we handled Native People was horrific.”

However the race-obsessed HuffPost reporters, who utterly disregarded Santorum’s clarification, instantly performed the race card, utilizing their very own leftist racist obsessions to demand that Santorum be fired, with a not-so-veiled menace to CNN advertisers thrown in.

Hmmm.

Over there at The New York Instances was a June, 2015 profile of the HuffPo.  Amongst different issues it mentioned this: 

“The Huffington Publish has all the time been guided by the query: What works? Specifically, what attracts visitors?”

Which is to say on this case, falsely accusing Santorum of racism, then threatening CNN advertisers with a none-too-unsubtle marketing campaign to get Santorum silenced, is designed for one factor and one factor solely. To cite from the Instances that might be: “What works? Specifically, what attracts visitors.”

Inevitably it raises the apparent query. How would The HuffPost react if there was a marketing campaign in conservative media to stress HuffPo advertisers to get HuffPo writers fired as a result of they sound like David Duke?

This drawback of demanding advertisers shut down this or that conservative voice goes on endlessly today. The demand to stress advertisers to drop Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity or Laura Ingraham by no means ends. Members of Congress have proposed having cable carriers cease carrying Fox Information, Newsmax and One America Information. When Rush Limbaugh was alive and thriving he was focused in the identical style.

Let’s be clear. Whomever is on the market enjoying this sport is about one factor: Bullying. Silencing factors of view they don’t like. Or, because it goes in in the present day’s lingo, “de-platforming” somebody.

One would recommend to The HuffPost and people who signal on to this cancel tradition censorship fascism: Watch out what you want for. And recall the knowledge of a president who started his profession as a author, John F. Kennedy.  

Stated JFK in his inaugural tackle: Those that “foolishly sought energy by using the again of the tiger ended up inside.”

Precisely.
