AoSHQ Podcast: Special Guest, National Review's Charles C. W. Cooke | Main | My Live-Tweet of the Dueling Weiner/Filner Press Conferences
July 26, 2013

New Yorker Begins The Collective's Coordinated Mass-Hate on Anthony Weiner

Via Twitchy.

As I said in the podcast, it's not true that the media-Democratic complex never goes after a Democrat.

It works like this:

For as long as possible, the Media-Democratic Complex attempts to save a Democrat by either not reporting the story at all, and refusing comment on it, or, if forced to comment, by offering vague condemnations (to pretend they're betrayed) with shows of support for the beleagured leftist (to maintain solidarity within The Collective).

However, at some point, sometimes, this NO ENEMIES TO THE LEFT strategy becomes untenable. At this point, The Collective turns viciously on the one they had been protecting, for two reasons:

1, out of genuine emotional anger at having been forced to protect him so long, and

2, in order to make a Conspicuous Show of their fidelity to the principles they pretend to believe.

They sort of ignore the part where they're actually the last ones to the party and in fact had be pressured/shamed into coming at all.

But to make up for their tardiness, they slather on vehemence.

They will protect you inside the soft, warm, wet Collective, but at some point, if you become a threat to The Collective, they will vomit you out and spit poison at you.

This is the pantomime of the Distancing/Purifying phase.

Objection: Ace, You're Just Describing the Basic Dynamics of a Firing or a Break-Up. Yes yes yes, you're right. Yes, a firing goes this way -- letting the unsuitable worker hang on for far too long, often followed by a decisive, and sometimes hard-hearted, termination.

And so too break-ups, where long-suppressed disenchantments suddenly rise to the surface, resulting in a clear, binary, you-are-out-of-my-life declaration.

But this is the sort of behavior one expects within an organization or within an affiliative relationship.

Yes, it may be normal for the Democrat Party to behave this way when they ultimately fire a troublesome employee.

What's the media excuse for doing the exact same thing, at the exact same time their political wing, the Democrat Party, does it?

Was the media in the same organization as Weiner? Was the media in an affiliative, affectionate relationship with him, which has now been irreparably damaged and must be called off with the finality of a Break-Up Letter?

The answer to these questions is "Yes." The Media Party is the real enemy, and the Democrat Party is just the group of lowlifes whose various drug problems and infidelities are not so notorious as to blockade them from seeking actual elective office.
