Green Room

Steven Crowder and accusing the accusers

posted at 12:17 pm on December 12, 2012 by

Pinpoint precision from R.S. McCain on what yesterday’s burst of denialism from the left was all about. It’s not really denialism; it’s delegitimization.

What the hell is this silly gibberish? Are these people crazy?

No, they’re engaged in a systematic effort to create confusion and discourage mainstream journalists from reporting on the incident.

“Accuse the accusers“! Re-arrange the narrative of events so that a story that obviously makes the Left look bad is, instead, a story about the Right unjustly trying to make the Left look bad.

This perversion of the narrative makes the teller of the tale (“Crowder works for Fox News! Stranahan works for Breitbart!”) the pre-demonized focus of the story, the villain whose tale can’t be trusted by any mainstream, legitimate journalist. And you can bet that any MSM reporter who does try to report honestly on what happened in Lansing will be brutally excoriated by Media Matters and others on the Left for taking this incident seriously as actual news.

This side, the deny/discredit side, is one wing of the lefty response; the other is the “he had it coming” wing. It’ll be darkly fascinating watching them jockey for position as the collapse of the blue-state model brings more Crowder-ish encounters.

i’m glad i made you laugh. that was the point.

sesquipedalian on December 12, 2012 at 4:47 PM

Oh, so now you “think” you are a good comedian, too? ROFLMAO@you!

Remember when I spoke the truth about you by calling you a bad-humored dingbat? As a response to your comment here, some helpful insight into why I said it: did you know that Stephen Colbert makes me laugh, too, but, because I find his comedy to be so lame and awful I cannot believe that anyone could be so simple as to like it, only at him rather than in the manner he is hoping to achieve?

Guess what? You are still a bad-humored dingbat who suffers from unwarranted and delusional self-superiority! :D

I really get enjoyment out of watching those stupid mouth breathing union thugs lose in state after state. Soon they may have to get real jobs, and then the crying will really start. What a bunch of babies!

Be careful … sesquipedalian is a fascist, a self proclaimed pretty fascist at that. They’re the worst kind.

darwin on December 12, 2012 at 5:07 PM

i’m now officially the most popular commenter at hotair.

sesquipedalian on December 12, 2012 at 2:21 PM

Good for you! Do you win a prize?

Del Dolemonte on December 12, 2012 at 5:18 PM

No one is saving your comments in a vault, sesqui.

Good Solid B-Plus on December 12, 2012 at 2:55 PM

Yes we are.

sesquipedalian on December 12, 2012 at 5:21 PM

Yes we are.

Del Dolemonte on December 12, 2012 at 5:19 PM

There’s no need to. It’s all easily accessible via a quick search.

Also, the guy who admits he would never confront his ideological opponents in person is talking about having ‘big balls.’

Lulz.

somehow you’d be more convincing if you weren’t roflmao at my jokes.

sesquipedalian on December 12, 2012 at 5:26 PM

The first self-styled comic in history who criticizes laughter at his jokes.

Very strange…

Good Solid B-Plus on December 12, 2012 at 5:23 PM

big balls and good sense.

sesquipedalian on December 12, 2012 at 5:35 PM

big balls and good sense.

sesquipedalian on December 12, 2012 at 5:35 PM

Give one example of you having ‘big balls.’ Being an anonymous commenter on a conservative website doesn’t count.

Good Solid B-Plus on December 12, 2012 at 5:41 PM

big balls and good sense.

sesquipedalian on December 12, 2012 at 5:35 PM

You think too much of yourself. Typical liberal. But you’re really nothing new and fresh; anything and everything you might propose to say has been heard and discounted among us by liberals better than lil’ ole you for years.

Liam on December 12, 2012 at 5:49 PM

at least i’m pretty.

sesquipedalian on November 15, 2012 at 3:40 PM

You’re a woman? Are you also a blonde? By the way, you’re not the least bit funny.

theaddora on December 12, 2012 at 5:50 PM

big balls and good sense.

sesquipedalian on December 12, 2012 at 5:35 PM

You’re also no lady with a raunchy mouth like that. But being a fascist liberal, that goes without saying.

sesquipedalian on November 15, 2012 at 3:40 PM

So do Rosanne Barr and Rosie O’Donnell.

Like you, they’re not ‘keepers’, either, even among lesbians.

Liam on December 12, 2012 at 6:03 PM

Sesqui…pssst…your snark is pretty lame…just thought you should know…you’re really not that smart. Just because the boys tell you you’re pretty and smart does not make it so.

Every day, all the time, or just at last call?

Liam on December 12, 2012 at 6:16 PM

Realistically, Ses, the way you present yourself around here, you would muck up your own funeral, you’re such a miserable failure at your every word and enterprise.

Liam on December 12, 2012 at 6:22 PM

Well, I see Sissy Hooligan ruined another thread.

I debate, please. The lib didn’t, and finally shut up. I see no ruination, no loss to us.

Liam on December 12, 2012 at 6:31 PM

Incomprehensible memes:

1. Peace-loving Muslims
2. Peace-loving union goons

Bitter Clinger on December 12, 2012 at 12:24 PM

New Army manual prohibits any negative references to Islam. Wouldn’t that be a violation of the liberal-created separation of church and state?

Nutstuyu on December 12, 2012 at 6:38 PM

Only from behind and only with the lights off.

i’m now officially the most popular notorious commenter at hotair.

of course the dude is a bloody idiot for going there to provoke the crowd. but the reason he had it coming is not just showing up, it’s his long, irritating oeuvre that finally caught up with him.

sesquipedalian on December 12, 2012 at 2:21 PM

I saw you were having trouble spelling “notorious,” so I thought I’d give you a hand.

sesquipedalian on December 12, 2012 at 4:33

Nah. You’re just an attention whore.

Any attention at all – even negative – sends thrills up your leg.

Plus your nifty little martyr complex…”speaking truth to power”…blah, blah, blah.

You have no courage at all. You’re just a pest…like a gnat.
