…by the right.
Why do we eat our own?
You may not have heard of DC McAllister before. but she’s a writer who’s done a ton of work for The Federalist and The Daily Wire as a staff writer. She’s been doing it for a long, long time, the type of person who’s consistent, putting out really good writing work. The kind of person you’d want at your writing outfit. She’s not a celebrity, not all over the news all the time for her shock-jock style antics or with long legs at the end of the desk in a short skirt. She’s just a good writer.
And it doesn’t matter, cuz the right is not about merit as much as they like to squawk like they are.
Our establishment only cares about optics, and what the left thinks of them. It’s the most idiotic thing I’ve ever seen, and it’s why we consistently lose. Our leaders constantly apologize to the left for being, even when the base and even they probably don’t agree.
McAllister made a vulgar tweet, one which was actually pretty true, even if it was a little cringy in the way it was stated. And there’s context to it.
She’d been under fire by a social media mob for talking badly about The View, which is the most horrendous awful program on television. Meghan McCain is used as a token whipping girl against hardcore leftist crazies. She’s used as an optic to be “fair” but in reality it’s just about mocking conservatives and Christians with a smirk saying “See, this is what they are.” It’s their platform, and enemy territory.
McAllister’s tweet was taken as a personal slight to McCain, when it wasn’t meant as such, and the internet went wild going after McAllister. People kept piling in and suddenly a New York Magazine writer by the name of Yashar Ali chimed in concern trolling her.
He’s a leftist, he works for New York Magazine. He’s a vocal homosexual as well. He made a comment implying that McAllister’s husband was beating her.
It was too much for McAllister.
Her tweet (since deleted) was: “Oh so sad. @yashar is lost. He doesn’t know his purpose as a man. He doesn’t know his purpose as a human being. He doesn’t know his purpose as an Individual. So he wallows and tries to find himself in another man’s asshole. Sad.”
While vulgar, she’s not wrong. And second, since he pushed about her husband, it’s firmly in a personal realm.
Naturally everyone flipped out. Ben Shapiro made his standard virtue signaling, everyone in the establishment turned on McAllister for “homophobia.”
Who’s cheering at her firing?
Jezebel, Salon, USA Today.
People who aren’t going to give the Daily Wire or the Federalist the time of day. People who are here to bring these companies down. They’re not going to get cookies from these groups for throwing their writer under the bus when she was under heavy internet mob attack and lost her cool. That’s all that happened.
And most of their audiences agree with her, even if we aren’t into the vulgar elements of what she said. Obviously someone who’s criticizing a masculine man and turning away from God to a sinful lifestyle is lost. There’s nothing wrong with saying that.
When will our side learn? This happens every time. We can’t even TALK about issues anymore because of the way the left frames them and we accept it.
It’s disappointing. And I stand with DC McAllister even though she did the wrong thing… by apologizing. But that’s another blog topic.
If you appreciate the right, support our cultural efforts. The establishment doesn’t give culture the time of day, leaving us to flail much like their commentators. You are the ones who can make the change. Culture pushes the Overton window. Culture is what influences the next generation. Back Flying Sparks today and help make a change.
