Joe the Undecided Voter: Now Media "Vetting" Randomly Chosen Undecided Voter Who Dared to Ask Hillary About Obamacare

I'm sure none of you are surprised by the media's behavior here: You saw them "vet" Joe the Plumber for asking Obama about wealth redistribution. The problem wasn't the question Joe asked -- it was Obama's response. Obama casually admitted his desire to "spread the wealth around," and instead of taking that as the news of the day -- an actual admission of socialist intent -- the media set itself on destroying Joe the Plumber for daring to ask a presidential candidate a question when that candidate had actually gone to his neighborhood, ostensibly to meet and answer questions from voters.

Well, Ken Bone hurt Hillary a little by asking a straight and fair question about Obamacare, so now he must be destroyed:

Bone is being assailed for agreeing with the George Zimmerman jury that Zimmerman acted in self-defense -- even while thinking he's a "dirty old shit bag" otherwise.

Gizmodo needs you to know he has watched porn, and even commented upon it:

Lest you think this is just the Gawker Gang, nope: The allegedly professional, non-blog media is in on the #WhenDoesJustinesPlaneLand? hunt.

CNN needs you to know he wrote dirty words on Reddit:

The New York Times is of course among the ringleaders:

So there's our media: Afflicting those who afflict the comfortable, and comforting those who afflict the afflicted.

By the way, how far do we want to take this "vetting of people who ask questions," media?

Jake Tapper tweeted that people in the media who are themselves guilty of sexual harassment/abuse of women should perhaps take a lower profile in handling the Trump allegations:

I'm sure the hell interested to know who he had in mind.

Apparently he was accused -- amazingly! -- of meaning victims of sexual assault should take a lower profile, when he obviously means the perpetrators should take a lower profile. He had to clarify his meaning -- I assume after people determined to shut him up did what they do, which is to make furious and spurious accusations of Thoughtcrimes.

I don't think a lot of people quite understand what's happening here: This is actually the overclass declaring war on anyone who does not swear fealty towards them.
