HuffPost Lectures Trump On Rhetoric, While Delivering A Daily Dose Of Hate To Its Liberal Readers, an editorial by Investor’s Business Daily.
“The Hate Flows Down” reads the screaming headline on the Huffington Post front page. The story, of course, is how President Donald Trump is responsible for what appear to be explosive devices sent to liberals and prominent Democrats.
Who is the HuffPost to complain? Every day their front page is rife with violent and hateful rhetoric — all directed, of course, at Republicans. We looked at the front page of the HuffPost over the past few days, and here’s a sampling of the verbs the site’s headline writers chose for stories critical of Republicans:
- Tears Into
- Pounce on
- Take on
- Shoots down
- Brutally shuts down
… HuffPost routinely mocks Republicans, links them with fascists, and otherwise demonizes them. One recent headline declared that “Elite GOP Get Cozy With Fascists.” Another declared that “GOP Rep Goes Full Racist.” …
And on every issue, there are no shades of gray. Republicans are always cast as liars, cheats, schemers. Democrats — especially the far left ones — are always the heroes. …
True to form, the site is now pinning blame for the bomb scares on Trump’s choice of words when criticizing his political opponents or the leftist media. (To be sure, every other major media outlet is doing the same thing.)
But somehow, HuffPost never felt the need to self-reflect after a violent, deranged Bernie Sanders supporter tried to assassinate a group of Republican lawmakers, and nearly killed Rep. Steve Scalise. You might think they’d think twice about running stories with headlines like: “Trump And Republicans Expect You To Die, Joe Public.”
