UNITY? BLM, Antifa mobs attack Trump supporters, Biden silent

Even after several GOP lawmakers called out Biden, the so-called “president-elect,” on social media, he did not even acknowledge the violence.

“I pledge to be a president who seeks not to divide, but unify. Who doesn’t see red states or blue states, only sees the United States…let’s give each other a chance. It’s time to put away the harsh rhetoric, lower the temperature, see each other again.”

These words came directly from Joe Biden himself during his first address to the nation as the media’s president-elect. 

What happened to that call for unity over the weekend? 

Crickets. 

As President Trump continues to pursue legal challenges, thousands of his supporters gathered in the nation’s capital Saturday for the “Million MAGA March,” showing their support and expressing concerns over the integrity of the 2020 election. 

But, it did not take long for violence to ensue. 

The march was pillaged by violent Black Lives Matter and Antifa mobs who encircled and viciously attacked isolated Trump supporters.

Even after several GOP lawmakers called out Biden, the so-called “president-elect,” on social media, he did not even acknowledge the violence. 

And, the silence was nothing short of deafening. 

The left-wing media also failed, once again, to cover the violence by left-wing extremist groups in an effort to further glorify their president-elect. Yet, if the situation were reversed, they would be thirsty to replay footage like a broken record and hound President Trump to denounce the actions of these groups, which he has done several times. 

Joe Biden, however? He’s off the hook.

GOP chairwoman Ronna McDaniel called out Biden and the media for turning a blind eye to the violence.

“The lack of attention on this is a disgrace,” she tweeted. 

Joe Biden called on the American people to come together, but refused to denounce the actions of his radical supporters.

The hypocrisy of the matter is chilling.

If he truly wants the unity he proclaims, this would be a good place to start.

    His silence just proves his irresponsibility as a supposed leader. He reminds me of when my kids played characters when they were growing up. Shame that his name will be in history as Hidin’ Biden who wouldn’t know what true leadership is, and was responsible for tryin to destroy the greatest country in the world!

Twitter Releases Redesigned Orange and Red ‘Misinformation’ Labels

Twitter is doubling down on letting you know when they think your internet behavior is uncouth

Twitter is doubling down on letting you know when they think your internet behavior is uncouth. Reportedly the company has been testing new labels since July, and “are an update from those Twitter used for election misinformation before and after the 2020 presidential contest” reports the Associated Press.

The new designs include added orange and red labels to “stand out” more than the old blue version, which blended with Twitter’s blue color scheme. However, the company was also cautious, as “its tests showed that if a label is too eye-catching, it leads to more people to retweet and reply to the original tweet.”

The AP writes those labels used in the presidential election “drew criticism for not doing enough to keep people from spreading obvious falsehoods.” Therefore the redesign will launch on Tuesday in hopes of being “easier to notice.”

The AP states experts say such labels are helpful to users and allow the big tech social media giants to “sidestep the more difficult work of content moderation – that is, deciding whether or not to remove posts, photos and videos that spread conspiracies and falsehoods.”

In its testing phase, Twitter said the redesigned labels showed a 17% increase in “click-through-rate” meaning more people would click on the labels to read the information debunking false or misleading tweets. “Misleading tweets that got the redesigned label – with an orange icon and the words ‘stay informed’ were also less likely to be retweeted or liked than those with the original labels.”

Twitter labels three types of misinformation: “manipulated media,” such as videos and audio believed to have been deceptively altered in ways that could cause real-world harm; election and voting-related misinformation and false or misleading tweets related to COVID-19.

The AP adds “tweets with more serious misinformation – for instance, a tweet claiming that vaccines cause autism – will get a stronger label, with the world ‘misleading’ and a red exclamation point. It won’t be possible to reply to, like or retweet these messages.”

Social Media Goes Wild During MSNBC’s Election Night Meltdown

“MSNBC is currently going through the 7 stages of grief on an endless loop in real-time”

Social media was thoroughly entertained by MSNBC’s “meltdown” over the November 2 election results rolling in. The cable channel likely got a little boost in viewership as Twitter users suggested others quickly turn to the channel to enjoy the comedy special.

As Virginia Republican gubernatorial candidate Glenn Youngkin began to take a clear advantage over Democrat Terry McAuliffe, “MSNBC hosts had public meltdowns that made for must-see TV among conservatives” write Fox News.

“If you want to give yourself a treat, turn on MSNBC” Ann Coulter tweeted. National Review critic and writer Kyle Smith tweeted, “Every conservative I know is watching MSNBC.” Meghan McCain wrote, “MSNBC is on nothing short of an emotional journey to Narnia tonight.”

Radio host Buck Sexton tweeted, “MSNBC is currently going through the 7 stages of grief on an endless loop in real-time.” The panel of hosts, Rachel Maddow, Joy Reid and Nicolle Wallace “spent much of the night making excuses and blaming Youngkin’s success on the backlash to critical race theory, which they claim doesn’t exist” writes Fox News.

Once word got out that Wallace made the claim critical race theory doesn’t exist, “the outspoken, right-leaning crowd that typically wouldn’t dare admit to watching the far-left network couldn’t help themselves on Election Night.”

It wasn’t just the words of the hosts that garnered attention, but also the station’s coverage, which was in essence, denial. NewsBusters managing editor Curtis Houck shared many of the clips from the MSNBC hosts throughout the night, including when the network dropped out of covering gubernatorial races in favor of Republican candidates and covered New York City Democrat Eric Adams’ victory speech instead.

“MSNBC’s election night co-hosts made it clear that they were pessimistic about their chances as they instead continued to lie about gubernatorial candidate Glenn Youngkin, his voters, and Republicans write large by calling them ‘dangerous’ human beings ‘to our national security’ and racists ‘in fleece’ peddling ‘lies’ about critical race theory,” wrote Houck.
