At Trump Rally, Crowd Roasts Jim Acosta

And yet they do not finish the meal.

Meanwhile, AllahPundit is whining about it worse than Acosta himself, because of course he is.

He's almost as hysterical about this as xe was about "baby-jails" and "toddler prisons," as he shrieked about when, get this, all his liberal pals were shrieking about it too. The validation from Jake Tapper in his DMs must have been E-P-I-C.

A few questions for the future Daily Beast "journalist:"

1. The media has the right to free speech, obviously. Does Trump, the president, not possess this right as well. Do his supporters at the rally not possess it?

2. Do you imagine that the world is split into castes, like a "Blogger" caste and "Commenter" caste, where the Commenter caste owes the Blogger caste hushed reverence with no backtalk?

I wonder if AllahPrincess is all butthurt from his commenters hating him (because he does nothing but bait and troll them), so maybe he imagines Jim Acosta is the "blogger" here, and these disreputable swine catcalling him are the Mean Commenters Filled With Toxic Hate. So naturally he sympathizes with the simp, and demands awestruck reverence for the Man With the Microphone and Makeup.

3. If Trump's baiting of the press puts the press at some imagined marginal increased danger from a rando psycho, what effect do you think CNN's constant claims that the president is a traitor and living breathing threat to national security and Our Very Republic Itself might have on the intentions of a rando psycho? Or does that not matter? Do only #MediaLivesMatter?

4. Do you deny CNN is an all-but-freely-admitted political actor at this point? You used to think it was; but perhaps you have executed a Jen Rubin-like pirouette on this point. (#MuhEternalPrinciples and all.) Assuming you still acknowledge CNN and the demonically megalomaniacal Jim Acosta to be political actors like any member of the DNC, what level of quiet respect do you think Trump's supporters would owe to, say, Adam Schiff doing a live shot at a Trump event?

5. How many stories has CNN run on Social Justice Warriors shutting down speakers completely, or just beating the shit out of them, with any kind of editorial statement that this is a bad thing? And don't, please, tell me that CNN doesn't editorialize; they editorialize constantly, whenever they feel like scolding bad behavior.

Their profound disintrest in the left's mob-and-riot-and-shutdown tactics, and their lack of any negative commentary about this habit, tells me that CNN approves of such tactics and considers them justified behavior, not bad behavior.

If they approve of such tactics when employed by the left against the right, why the fuck would anyone still pretending to be "center right" or "conservatarian" or whatever your bullshit claimed politics intercede to scold people at a partisan political rally for taking the minor action of just heckling a partisan reporter? Why should CNN, which approves of even rioting to shut down speakers it doesn't cotton to, have any additional rights to not be merely heckled?

Why do you agree with the left's claims that that they are simply entitled to more rights and more privileges than the right?

...

I've asked this before: If you're an alternate media source that does nothing but parrot, except more hysterically, the exact claims made by the dominant media -- what is the point of you? What is your actual contribution?
