What is it with the media and their death wish obsession?
First, it was nothing but threats against Trump for years, which were openly aided and abetted by various celebrities, comedians, and other individuals who have far too loud of a microphone.
Next, it was nothing but threats against anyone who dares to support Trump, in particular anyone who was anywhere near Washington, D.C. on January 6.
Now, apparently the media thinks it’s perfectly appropriate to ramp up threats against Supreme Court justices, or take every potential action to inflame tensions.
Just consider the attention given to “Ruth Sent Us,” an absurdly named group that the justice likely would not even want to be associated with, especially since the group can be held directly responsible for an attempt to take the life of Brett Kavanaugh.
Who can forget a disaffected 26-year-old, Nicholas John Roske, being arrested, and then having the gall to declare his life’s “purpose” was to take out conservative Supreme Court justices?
Breitbart Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow rebuked the group for downplaying Roske’s arrest, claiming it wasn’t a very big deal.
Marlow feels otherwise.
“Despite their role in the unprecedented protests in Supreme Court justices’ neighborhoods, Ruth Sent Us downplayed the arrest, saying it wasn’t a ‘serious’ assassination attempt,” Marlow remarked in disgust.
On the plus side, even Twitter apparently recognizes the group is violent.
“The group’s antics have, however, attracted the attention of TikTok, which briefly banned the group in May (but has since reinstated it),” Marlow continued, “and Twitter, where the group’s account is currently suspended, presumably due to the threats and harassment.”
However, while social media platforms may have actually kept “Ruth Sent Us” in check, at least more to a degree than other Democrats, a so-called “senior editor” in the media has gone on to encourage death against jusices once again.
In this unfunny scenario, Vox senior editor Ian Millhiser fantasizes about an obituary for Justice Samuel Alito.
“Justice Samuel Alito, who died on XXXX, was not devoid of any positive traits. He was a skilled attorney and a highly effective advocate for conservative causes,” Millhiser declared.
As usual, the editor had to politicize everything, keeping the partisanship going throughout the rest of his troubling exercise.
“Had he spent his career as a litigator, he would almost certainly be remembered as one of the Republican Party’s leading Supreme Court practitioners,” the editor drawled.
Ah, but of course. Be sure to bring up Republicans in an obituary.
“The problem is that Justice Alito was, indeed, one of the Republican Party’s leading Supreme Court advocates – but he embraced this role while he was a sitting justice,” concluded Millhiser.
Obsessed with Republicans much?
Regardless of how humorous he apparently thought he was, he clearly doesn’t think the arrest of Roske is that serious either; otherwise, he would never publicize something so irresponsible.
Though one might think otherwise when actually seeing what Roske has to say about Supreme Court justices.
“I could get at least one, which would change the votes for decades to come, and I am shooting for 3 all of the major decisions for the past 10 years have been along party lines,” Roske fantasized, “so if there are more liberal than conservative judges, they will have the power.”
These are the types of people the media inspire …
