Julia Ioffe, Formerly at New Republic and Politico, Soon at the Atlantic, Accuses Trump of "F***ing" His Daughter Ivanka

The liberal reaction is interesting.

Ioffe's contract with Politico was almost up; in response to this tweet by Ioffe, they chose to terminate her contract early.

The Atlantic, where she's headed now, chose to defend her. They did promise she'd behave more professionally in the future.

Good luck on that!

Valleywag's Sam Biddle -- the ringmaster of two vicious Twitter scalp-hunting expeditions, one against Justine Sacco and the other against Brendan Eich, now dares to say this about Politico's early-termination of his ideological ally:

Mollie Hemingway recalls how the left treated a Republican who made a much-less-disparaging remark about a Democrat president's child.

When Elizabeth Lauten, a very minor congressional staffer no one ever heard of, remarked that she thought one of the Obama daughters was acting ungraciously, the Washington Post -- not Buzzfeed, but the Washington Post -- actually assigned a foreign policy reporter to dig up dirt on this nobody.

And man, did the Washington Post go to town on this very minor figure:

So people are naturally a bit curious as to why liberals are in outrage mode against the outrage against Ioffe, when they've not only been in favor of scalp-hunting before, but in fact have been the ringleaders.

Elizabeth Lauten, a relative nobody, was driven from her job. Reporters were actually camped out on her front lawn for having posted something on FaceBook.

Mollie Hemingway previously wrote about the media lynching of Elizabeth Lauten here.

Meanwhile, Julia Ioffe, allegedly a "reporter" who "reports" "objectively" on "real news" -- and note that Elizabeth Lauten had no such restraints as far as nonpartisanship; she is was a Republican staffer -- is apparently to be coddled, indulged, and indeed promoted.

There is no possible justification for this, except for the one they strongly imply but few have the courage to say openly: It's because Julia Ioffe is a leftist and the media-government complex has decided that leftists simply have more rights -- more freedoms, more latitude, more humanity -- than others.

This will not stand.

People will kill or die before they permit another group to subordinate them into second class citizens.

Keep it up, fellas. Keep it up.
