Soyboy Beta Cucks Are White Knighting Rashida Tlaib on Her "Motherf***er" Passionate Language, As I Predicted

They spend all day and all night hall monitoring Trump (and us) about "coarsening our public discourse" -- but suddenly they've found a Foul Language Hill they're willing to die to defend.

That hill, of course, is a Democrat hill, and an anti-Trump hill. They will take whatever position is necessary to put them On The Other Side, because, obviously, they are On the Other Side.

This is what reflexive partisans like Jen Rubin and Bill Kristol do -- they take positions based on their pre-existing and very temporary partisan needs, not "eternal principles" as they usually claim.

Now we have someone using the term "motherfucker" about the President of the United States -- quite obviously "coarsening the public dialogue" that they're forever sissy-lisping about when it's in the form of a Trump Tweet -- and now searching for ways to attack the GOP for Tlaib's outburst.

Obviously, Bill Kristol could not wait to attack the GOP for a leftwing Democrats' sin:

Note that he frames this as a dispute over tactics. But is it? He barely acknowledges Tlaib's comment The real condemnation is directed at for the GOP, which did not make the comment-- "unctuously smarmy," he damns them.

This motherfucker should talk lisp!

Strange that the GOP should get rapped so hard for what one of Bill Kristol's political allies said!

Then we have Seth Mandel, who also wants to defend Tlaib's language by bringing up another point -- one that turns out to be #FakeNews, but I'll get to that in a moment.

Here's the text of what he claimed, in case he deletes his tweet -- which I expect him to do.

Seth Mandel


Rashida Tlaib has a map in her office where Israel is covered over and relabeled "Palestine" but people are clutching pearls today because she cursed?

Decline is a choice, and it's a choice we've already made, apparently.

So yes, we have Seth Mandel making an attack on Tlaib, but notice he can't make that attack without attacking the rest of the GOP for "clutching pearls" over her "curse."

Again: He always needs to put himself crosswise with the GOP to show his liberal friends and liberal NeverTrump allies he's not like the Deplorable Garbage People.

Here's the problem: this fucking idiot is shitting out #FakeNews to make this point.

And Clarity Media just named him editor of the new "Washington Examiner Magazine," which I usually call Cuckshed Weekly.

So, here is the map he's complaining of:

The following is irrelevant to my point, but it's funny, so let me include it:

Now, back to Soyboy Beta Cuck Seth Mandel.

His tweet strongly implies that Tlaib put up that post-It note which labels Israel as "Palestine." He says she "has" a map so altered, which implies this alteration continues, and the alteration is of her doing.

Is it? Notice he doesn't say so explicitly. He hedges with a lot of slipperly language to avoid making a factual declaration.

Should the Editor in Chief of a supposed news and opinion weekly get so slippery and evasive with facts?

He deliberately resorts to a passive verb -- "has" -- instead of an active one, like "bought," or "mounted," or "created," or "altered."

"Has" in her office is used here to merely mean "exists or has previously existed" in her office. But it also can be read as implying that she possesses and owns the alteration to it, the Post-It note.

All of this passive and elusive language is designed to obscure a fact:

That he doesn't know the facts.

That he doesn't know how this map came to be altered. And rather than saying so forthrightly, like "I don't know how this map came to be, but it's standing (or was standing, at least) in her office," he resorts to obfuscatory constructions to, well, obfuscate.

Did Tlaib put that post-it on the map? It's kind of an important question, isn't it?

Especially if you're the Editor in Chief of Cuckshed Weekly, things like "verified facts" ought to matter to you.

It also ought to matter to the people who just entrusted you to run their magazine and make it both prestigious and non-defamatory.

Personally, I just run this blog, and when I heard about this story, I held off on reporting it, and did NOT include it with my Tlaib post, because I didn't have solid sourcing to indicate 1, that this was even real or 2, that Tlaib did this.

I'm glad I did hold off on it.

I don't want to defend Tlaib and I have all the same suspicions you all have about her. I would agree with this Soyboy Beta Cuck that she certainly agrees with the sentiment that this map episode suggests.

But that's not the same as slanderously implying, as a factual matter, that the alteration was hers.

So here's how the Post-It came to be on the map, as explained by the guy who put it there, just after he put it there:

What he says is that when Tlaib was being sworn in -- that is, when she was not present in the office -- he himself put the Post-It on the map.

In other words, she did not know he was going to do this, did not ask him to do this, and as far as we know, did not ever know he did this. We don't know, for example, that he left it up.

He's a comedian. I mean, obviously he's not funny, but that's what he claims his trade is in his Twitter bio.

He certainly seems to have been an invited guest of Tlaib, and sure, I'd grant that Tlaib almost surely agrees with him on the question of wiping Israel off the map, but I would not imply, in an act of actionable defamation by implication, that Tlaib herself altered the map or that she approved of this or that she even know of this.

Especially if I were the newly installed "Editor in Chief" of Cuckshed Weekly.

"Things I believe are probably true" are not the same as "thing which I have verified as reportable facts."

Does Seth Mandel have any reporting to back up his innuendo? Does he have verified reporting that Tlaib approved of this Post-It? Does he even know she even knew about it at all?

Does this Editor in Chief know that defamation-by-innuendo is actually actionable? Even if you craftily avoid saying the forbidden defamatory words, if you still hint at them, you can be sued.

Does Clarity Media know his twitter bio identifies him as " Executive Editor, Washington Examiner Mag" and thus puts them on the hook for any fake news and/or actionable libels he tosses out there?

Were I the Editor in Chief of a cuck magazine designed to flatter NeverTrumpers' unearned sense of superiority, I would be more professional about casual slander and I would refrain from resorting to dishonestly evasive constructions to avoid admitting which facts I didn't actually know to be facts.

I'm additionally amused that his attack on us thuggish members of the GOP who pointed out Tlaib's vulgar language -- which I don't care about, to be honest, but it's worth pointing out that the leftwing media and the slightly less leftwing NeverTrump media have pretended to care about for two and a half motherfucking years -- instead of focusing on what really matters, which is Seth Mandel's fact-free speculation/innuendo that Tlaib put this Post-It on the map herself or approved of it being put on the map.

Let's rewrite Sethie's tweet to better accord with the apparent facts:

A guest of Rashida Tlaib's (I assume) put a Post-It on a map relabeling Israel as Palstine and I do not know and cannot confirm that Tlaib saw this map or knew a thing about it, and yet these thuggish troglodyte Republicans are criticizing her more for something she was documented to have said on videotape rather than some fact-free speculation about her after-the-fact knowledge of what a completely different person did?

Rewritten accurately, with the facts actually included -- it doesn't seem so strange that the GOP would focus on the thing we know, as a factual matter, she actually said, rather than the thing we 1, know she did not say and 2, do not even know if she knew was said in her absence?

It doesn't seem strange at all to me that the GOP would criticize Tlaib for what we know she actually did and not criticize her so much for stuff she did not do and maybe didn't even know about.

But that's what it takes to be a NeverTrumper in the Age of Trump -- contriving exciting new reasons to criticize Deplorable Genuine Conservatives and party loyalists while not-so-subtly proclaiming their own imagined superiority.

Even if it means resorting to pumping out FakeNews and casual libel to do so.

I just can't get over how these motherfucking wife-sharing cucks never stop parading their imaginary superiority while demonstrating at every turn their complete inadequacy and incompetency.

Decline is a choice, and it's a choice we've already made, apparently.

Well, Phil Anschultz and Ryan McKibben certainly have chosen a decline in editorial standards, Sethie.

By the way: The cucks make fun of Breitbart all the time. They charge Breitbart with peddling nuclear-hot-takes and sloppy assumptions and implications that are either fake news or very close to fake news.

Breitbart also talked around the facts to avoid stating whether or not Tlaib had anything to do with this map while suggesting that maybe she did.

Just like the Washington Examiner Magazine's new Editor in Chief did.

So will the cucks rally 'round their fellow soyboy beta cuck for something they'd endlessly mock Breitbart for?

Answer: Yes, of course they will. Because the cuck NeverTrumpers are intense tribalists, constantly linking and retweeting each other's garbage and of course always lining up like soldier ants to defend each other.

All the while criticizing other people for their alleged sin of being "too tribalistic."

PS, if you're on Twitter, please alert Seth Mandel to the fact that he pushed out FakeNews. And let Clarity Media know they might have to have a talk with him while you're at it. I wouldn't want them to have to shut down Cuckshed Weekly in six months (instead of a year) due to Seth Mandel's YOLO attitude towards defamatory statements.
