It’s whiplash-inducing how fast Milo had been tossed under the bus.
Before judging, make sure you know all the facts. Unfortunately too many people on the right (mea culpa, I’m as guilty of this as most) take the liberal headlines at face value and recoil from certain individuals. This happened with Mike Flynn and now it’s happening with Milo. In both cases people have made judgments based on partial information, which is what the other side wants. It isn’t for nothing that the late Andrew Breitbart referred to this as “war.”
I love many of the pundits and podcasters who make their home here on Ricochet. I hold them in high regard, especially the more curmudgeonly types (looking at you, Kevin). But it needs to be said that anytime news reports come out painting someone who identifies as being on the right in a negative light we need to stop, wait and be 100 percent certain that we have all the facts.
I hate that this next bit sounds somewhat conspiratorial, but here goes. The institutional left fronted by the whining, virtue-signaling press corps and backed by the meretricious satraps of the deep state has shown that their philosophy is that the ends always justify the means. Democracy, honesty, decency, morality, probity, these are, in their eyes, weapons to be used when they work and set aside when they don’t.
It pains me to say, but I don’t think this is a war we can win playing by the Marquess of Queensbury rules at this point.
So, I look for my allies where I can find them and make common cause with those who would work with me to muck out the Augean Stables for the left.
