Conservative Media Feeling Victimized Again

Media Matters quotes conservative media reacting to their very bad week culminating with the indictments of conservative stalwarts such as Dinesh D’Souza and Gov. Bob McDonnell, as well as ongoing investigations into Gov. Chris Christie’s evolving Bridgegate scandal.

Drudge:

Alex Jones:

“Emergency Alert!!!: This is it, we are in deep shit! If they get away with this they will come for all of us, that’s how it works!!!”

Laura Ingraham:

“We are criminalizing political dissent in the United States of America. Welcome to the Brave New World of retribution justice.”

Rush Limbaugh:

“Democrats are out to criminalize as many Republicans and Conservatives as they can.”

Fox Nation Headline:

Is There A COORDINATED VAST LEFT-WING CONSPIRACY?

Fox News Headline(because Fox Nation and Fox News are totally independent schools of thought):

‘SELECTIVE’ CHARGES? Feds indict filmmaker behind anti-Obama doc?

NEWSMAX headline:

Payback: ’2016 Obama’ Movie’s D’Souza Indicted

In one of his less-crazy comments, former Rep. Joe Walsh and current host of his own show on public airwaves, no less, knows exactly what this is all about: The NAZIs.

They’re adorable. First nut who shows up with a gun at a Democratic party office wins a free shout-out from Right wing media.

    They have no fucking SHAME whatsoever.

    So the indictments of Bob McDonnell on bribery and corruption charges and Dinesh D’Souza on campaign finance charges are payback for … criticizing Barack Obama?

    Wow. There’s a pattern here!

    I mean, look what’s happened to all those racist crackers patriots with their ARs and eccentrically-spelled signs declaring Obama to be a Kenyan Nazi fascist communist Muslim. They were mistreated by law enforcement in the worst imaginable way: they were allowed to scream and yell and wave their fists in the air and then go home.

    And Fox News Channel is still broadcasting! With no governmental interference at all!

    And Matt Drudge and Alex Jones are still on the internet!

    Wake up, sheeple!

    No, the Right isn’t at all insane.

    And because I must:

    Boo-fucking-hoo, you right wing crybabies. We’re fresh out of fucks to give you.

    How long before the Heroes of Their Own Private Mythology™ take this to the next level?

    Probably never. Deep down they’re cowards. They want to feel like heroes and martyrs, not actually be heroes and martyrs.

    And that’s ignoring the shoe-on-the-other-foot hypocrisy of people who tried to “criminalize political dissent” in 2002, 2003 and 2004, who wanted Michael Moore jailed and executed, who cheered the outing of a CIA agent to punish her husband for “questioning the administration,” and on and on and on.

    This needs to be shown and watched again and again and again and again.

  • JWheels

    Yes, there could be a “vast left-wing conspiracy” out to punish all those Patriotic Good Old-Fashioned Conservative Americans™ simply for doing their duty in defending liberty against the forces of evil wrapped in the skin of a Communo-Fascist-Muslim African-American-Kenyan president. ORRR it could just be that the people in question really are just that corrupt. Nahh… the first one is the only one that makes sense.

  • Lady Willpower

    What a bunch of whiners. And they think we’re the pussies?

  • Sabyen91

    Republicans used to pride themselves in being tough. Now they whine about every little hangnail. Oh, and Obama invented hangnails.

    • GeauxGhoti

      I’d love to see these guys face Teddy Roosevelt…

  • Badgerite

    The Christie Administration shut down traffic on one of the busiest bridges in the world right around the anniversary of 9/11. And since legitimate governmental reason for this could be found and the people doing it left a trail of incriminating emails, one has to believe it was done for reasons of political retribution against someone, probably not a Republican.
    What the right seems to want is a ‘Get Out of Jail Free’ card. But being in positions entrusted by the people with acting in their interest is not monopoly. You either take that responsibility seriously or face the legal consequences. Here’s a hanky.

    • Churchlady320

      No no – the ‘get out of jail free card’ is Jesus. They wish to be knighted for their worldly deeds since it manifests their specialness as The Elect. Rules can’t possibly be applied to THEM.

  • Churchlady320

    Government doesn’t need to bring down the RW extremists. They’re doing a beautiful job all on their own.

  • Lady Willpower

    “They are going after the Obama critics with indictments.”

    Who is this “they?”

    • Christopher Foxx

      The American system of Justice.

      You know, the thing Republicans hate.

  • Christopher Foxx


    First Christie, second McDonnell, after that, D’Souza, then they came for…?

    … the rest of the criminals.

    You see, Republicans. That’s how it works in a law-abiding society. You break the laws, you get indicted.

  • Sean Richardson

    Want to play a fun game? Take a Google-look at what Joe Walsh says about Chris Christie outside of being able to lump him in as some unfairly targetted Obama critic. He hates the guy. He specifically says he’s not a real Republican. But now, he’s trying to claim him.
