So right here was the decidedly false headline at The HuffPost

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

Does anyone care about sharing airtime with a man who stated “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 penning 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 comfy having their adverts run on a present and community that welcomes Santorum as a commentator.

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

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

The place to start?

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

 Requested on Chris Cuomo’s present to debate what he stated, Chris stated this to Santorum: “This appeared such as you have been making an attempt 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’ll be able to see from the run-up, I used to be speaking concerning the founding of our nation. I had given an extended speak concerning the Structure, the Declaration of Independence, and the concepts behind these, and that I used to be saying we kind of created that anew, if you’ll. 

And I used to be not making an attempt to dismiss Native Individuals. In actual fact, I discussed them as a result of, sure, they have been right here and did have an effect. You’re proper. They’ve a huge effect, significantly within the west and lots of different areas of the nation, the place they’ve a huge effect 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’d by no means — and folks stated I’m making an attempt to dismiss what we did to the Native Individuals, removed from it. The best way we handled Native Individuals was horrific.”

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

However the race-obsessed HuffPost reporters, who fully omitted 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 risk to CNN advertisers thrown in.

Hmmm.

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

“The Huffington Put up has at all times been guided by the query: What works? Particularly, what attracts site 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 will be: “What works? Particularly, what attracts site 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 downside of demanding advertisers shut down this or that conservative voice goes on endlessly nowadays. 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 taking part in this recreation is about one factor: Bullying. Silencing factors of view they don’t like. Or, because it goes in at this time’s lingo, “de-platforming” somebody.

One would counsel to The HuffPost and those that 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 handle: Those that “foolishly sought energy by driving the again of the tiger ended up inside.”

Precisely.
