After being unable to beat Donald Trump fair and square at the ballot box the Democrats and their media surrogates are going after Steve Bannon instead. The former head of Breitbart News who was recently tabbed as Trump’s White House strategist has been savagely attacked by a rudderless party that Republicans just mopped the floor with in a national election.
The attacks on Bannon have been fueled by Democrat front group the Southern Poverty Law Center who in their crusade to take down a key Trump administraiton figure are trashing Breitbart’s brand by falsely claiming that it is a ‘white nationalist’ site frequented by Neo-Nazis and the so-called alt-right while ignoring the fact that millions of other Americans who do not hold racist views are regular visitors.
While Dems are thrashing and foaming at the mouth over their crushing loss, the establishment media is turning it’s guns on Breitbart which along with other alternative media sites has emerged as the biggest winner of the election cycle. The national media has been an abject embarrassment with it’s unabashed shilling for Hillary Clinton and the falsehood that replaced reality for millions of fragile snowflakes that her election was a slam dunk.
Now Breitbart is reportedly fighting back through the courts by preparing to launch a lawsuit against a yet unnamed “major media company” over the scurrilous lies that the hugely popular site is on a level with Stromfront.org.
The Hill is reporting “Breitbart News planning lawsuit against ‘major media company'”:
Breitbart News is preparing a lawsuit against a “major media company” over claims that it is a white nationalist website, it said in an exclusive statement to The Hill.
The website has been under intense scrutiny since President-elect Donald Trump named Stephen Bannon as a senior White House counselor and strategist. Bannon is the former executive chairman of Breitbart News, and the site has become associated with the “alt-right” movement that helped propel Trump’s candidacy.
“Breitbart News Network, a pro-America, conservative website, is preparing a multi-million dollar lawsuit against a major media company for its baseless and defamatory claim that Breitbart News is a ‘white nationalist website,’” the statement reads.
“Breitbart News cannot allow such vicious racial lies to go unchallenged, especially by cynical, politically-motivated competitors seeking to diminish its 42 million monthly readers and its number one in the world political Facebook page. Breitbart News rejects racism in all its varied and ugly forms. Always has, always will,” the statement continues.
“The diversity of the company’s news coverage and its staff continue to embody Andrew Breitbart’s colorblind, distinctly American commitment to ‘E pluribus unum’—out of many, one.”
Breitbart News — which generated 240 million page views and attracted 37 million unique visitors in the month of October leading up to Election Day — would not comment on which major media company the publication plans to sue, nor when the suit will be filed.
Now that it’s apparent that the media has learned nothing after the election of Trump and won’t be abandoning it’s duty as a megaphone for the Democrats/establishment, the key may be in just suing the bastards. Just like the Trump team has threatened to do to mealy-mouthed Democrat Harry Reid whose irresponsible statement that the President-Elect is a “sexual predator” is a falsehood that is clearly an act of slander and character defamation that would make lesser beings subject to litigation.
It would be wonderful if the entity being sued is the Washington Post which is one of the most dishonest rags in the land and has served as a bastion for Trump hatred since the day that the man rode down that escalator to announce his candidacy.
Freedom of the press should not be extended to a pack of propagandists who have been hired engage in politically motivated yellow journalism and they should be discredited and run out of the profession entirely
