Stay Woke: Yet Another "Hate Crime" Revealed As Staged | Main | Obama: After Leaving the White House, I Need to be "Still" With My Own Thoughts So I Can "Process" What Just Happened
December 27, 2016

"LISTEN TO US:" ABCNews' "Objective" Head Political "Analyst" Trolls Christians, Republicans on Christmas Eve

I deliberately didn't post this story on Christmas Eve or Christmas day because I didn't want to drop a hate-bomb on everyone.

But it should be noted.

There are a couple of problems with it. First, it's attempting to inject hatred and ill-will into Christmas Eve.

Second, it's not just trolling, it's old, unorginal trolling -- leftists trot this same meme out every Christmas.

Third, it's wrong.

As many Biblically-literate people noted, Joseph and Mary were not "migrants;" they were travelers reporting to the local government center for mandatory government-ordered census-taking.

But whatever, he's super-Christian or whatever.

He then feigned shock that people were taking his obviously contrary-to-the-spirit-of-the-season trolling as trolling:

But he wasn't done quite yet. He then decided to give the game away by shrieking that "Trump fans" wouldn't listen to him:

Note his rather obvious hatred for "Trump fans" -- I don't remember him ever calling out "Obama fans."

And that's what this is all about, isn't it? Trump fans will not listen to Matthew J. Dowd. You know, the objective, fact-based Head Political Analyst for ABCNews who gets everything wrong and in fact apologized a short time ago for being rotten to people who contradicted his claim that Trump could never win. (More on that later.)

I missed this on the first go: He actually has a political agitation organization called, get this, "Listen To Us."

And no, I'm not kidding. It's emblazoned on his Twitter masthead.

He then made some demands. You know, like a hostage-taker:

Then he seems to have began babbling incoherently that we should all trust the polls as "facts" -- the same polls that were so badly wrong just 50 or so days ago:

But Dowd has been attacking anyone suggesting that the polls might be wrong for a long while now:

Host Joe Scarborough first talked about the disservice the media did to the American people during the 2016 election by dismissing anyone who said that Donald Trump had a chance of winning the presidency over Hillary Clinton.

Scarborough then brought up ABCs Matthew Dowd and said he would write multiple nasty messages if someone said they believed Trump would win. Co-host Mika Brzezinski then brought up Stephanopoulos.

Astoundingly -- I think DrewM. pointed this out -- this was the hack who just a short time ago (on November 11th) promised he would do better.

As I move on from the aftermath of the presidential election, these words from the Latin Mass I attended as a youth bounced around in my head -- "mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa."

The rough translation is "My fault, My fault, My greatest fault".

I want to take this opportunity to say I was wrong about who would win the election. But my biggest regret, and what I would like to apologize for is the arrogant, close-minded, judgmental, and sometimes mean-spirited way I related to many who believed Trump would win.

They were right, and I was wrong.

I had seen many things coming in this election that turned out to be on target, but for the big finale, I was way, way off. This is primarily because I stopped listening, focused too much on data, and didn't allow counter evidence to be absorbed in a meaningful way.

I became too bunkered in New York City (away from my home in Central Texas) in the last few months, and didn't pay attention to the local stories where another portion of America lives and breathes. Too many of my discussions centered around polling, the horserace, and odds, and not enough on the conversations on the ground.


[I]n the fall, I became convinced Trump would lose, and after the three debates, even put odds on Clinton winning at 95 percent.

Mea Culpa. I was dead wrong.

Instead of casting my prediction as an educated guess or an informed opinion, I treated it as an inarguable fact. In the past, I have said making numerical predictions is faux math, and still I did it anyway. I should have followed St. John of the Cross and held a place of the unknowing: where truth doesn't come as much through the head, as from the heart and the love we show others.

And thus as I said my biggest blunder was in how I treated people of differing opinions. Mea Maxima Culpa.

Dowd's promise seems to have lasted as long as one of his hero Obama's.

Now this wretched c**t is posting all this shit about loving thy neighbor and love overcoming division and hatred:

And this is the head political analyst of ABCNews.

A shopowner who keeps a known, admitted, unreformable thief at the cash register cannot blame the thief for thieving. He can only blame himself.

Their fault -- their maximum fault.

Update: A commenter says he was Bush-Cheney's political consultant in the 2004 election. Which I guess would make him a #NeverTrumper, rather than an outright leftist.

Just the soft sort of Polite Company Republican the media loves to hire.

Ah well. The #NeverTrump crew is as bitterly unhinged as their fellow travelers on the left.
