The newest Consumer Price Index report is awful. Last month, inflation hit the highest level since 1981. Perhaps it is just coincidence, but the national media are all about the January 6, 2021 “insurrection.”

Fox News is not going along. You can criticize the Jan 6 riot, but let’s not forget what happened the year before.
Flashback May 2020: At night, the far-left rioters surrounded the White House and tried tearing apart the protective barrier so they could storm the building. Secret Service and law enforcement were injured by the violent extremists. #CapitolRiot pic.twitter.com/pvxs5pPJzM

I knew there was a lot of rank hypocrisy regarding media handling of the BLM and Jan 7 capitol riots, but by the time of the hearings I’d forgotten that the former actually involved outright storming the White House. https://t.co/SJnn45OBbC

The Associated Press wrote a widely syndicated article worried that “white supremacists” still have too much reach on social media.
White nationalists and supremacists on social media platforms are using coded hashtags and innuendo to rile up thousands of followers on divisive issues that federal officials warn might drive some extremists to violently attack public places in the U.S. https://t.co/OIgeHuloPr

Here’s how it begins:
The social media posts are of a distinct type. They hint darkly that the CIA or the FBI are behind mass shootings. They traffic in racist, sexist and homophobic tropes. They revel in the prospect of a “white boy summer.”
“White Boy Summer” is a hip-hop song by Tom Hanks’s son about “women, strip clubs, money and online adult entertainment.”

The AP goes on:
U.S. extremists are mimicking the social media strategy used by the Islamic State group, which turned to subtle language and images across Telegram, Facebook and YouTube a decade ago to evade the industry-wide crackdown of the terrorist group’s online presence, said Mia Bloom, a communications professor at Georgia State University.
Who is Mia Bloom?

She got in trouble about a year ago for allegedly calling a colleague a vulgar word. This led to some intra-left squabbling.
1. “Regardless of intent or ignorance of a second meaning”. I’m done with y’all.
I found myself just staring at Mia’s initial comments a few hours ago, wondering what state of mind I would need to be in to call someone who mildly critiqued my work a bitch and a whore. https://t.co/NXJA8k9Zd9

4. Instead, Mia decided to DM Nimmi on Linkedin, and call her an “embittered bitch” at 10:50pm. Getting no response, she went back the next morning and added the word thevadiyal at 9:49am. https://t.co/abdohCP7cy

Twitter squabbling is the theme of the week. At the Washington Post, a newspaper many people used to take seriously, the drama began when reporter Dave Weigel retweeted an insensitive joke. The Washington Post’s Felicia Sonmez posted:
Fantastic to work at a news outlet where retweets like this are allowed! pic.twitter.com/zs4dX4qprH
— Felicia Sonmez (@feliciasonmez) June 3, 2022
Mr. Weigel was suspended for a month without pay. Fox found that Mr. Weigel had defended Miss Sonmez when she got into her own Twitter scrape. The favor was not returned. Instead, Miss Sonmez escalated and kept embarrassing her employer on social media.
Objecting to sexism is not “clout chasing.” It’s not “harassment.” And it’s certainly not “cruelty.”

Example 5 billion and then some. Especially great when a statement from your newspaper’s executive editor provides fodder for *more* harassment. pic.twitter.com/nwNLPOcSDm
— Felicia Sonmez (@feliciasonmez) June 5, 2022
Miss Sonmez tweeted for days about her problems with the Post. She did not listen to a fellow reporter who told her to “please stop.”
I stand by what I wrote in that email. In 2018, I was punished after I told my editors I needed to take a walk around the block after reading a difficult story.
Other colleagues have been punished for their trauma far more recently, but their stories aren’t mine to tell. 1/ https://t.co/uLXvL2fVmA
— Felicia Sonmez (@feliciasonmez) June 9, 2022
And so, the Post fired her. Presumably Mr. Weigel will return to his job in about a month.
Cat fights like these seem bizarre to normal people with real jobs, but they show how media power works. A journalist can direct the online mob, but sometimes, the mob turns on them. I don’t know whether to believe them when lefties claim racism, sexism, and other “isms” make their jobs a nightmare, but “wokeness” seems to be a tool they resort to in status fights with colleagues.
It must be exhausting to live this way. For the first time, I felt bad for journalists. But not for long.

South Africa is exactly what race realists would expect it to be. Most whites, whatever they say, do not want to live in black-run countries or neighborhoods. If that is racism, almost every white person in the world is racist. And the word means nothing.
I’ve long thought that at least some whites who claim to be some form of LGBTQ+ just want to be “victims.” It doesn’t appear to work.
‘When you’re an LGBTQI+ person of colour and you walk into a white space, you know.’ – @MsLadyPhyll, one of the founders of @ukblackpride 🏳️🌈@Nmozz spoke to LGBTQ+ activists about what ‘white gay privilege’ is, and why it is vital to be aware of it 👇🏿https://t.co/gOS03HSGLK

An activist vaguely connected with the United Nations has an important message:
Stop being ignorant about white privilege. It does NOT mean you’re racist. It does NOT mean your life has been easy. It does NOT mean you don’t face struggles too. It means your life isn’t made harder by your skin color. THAT’S IT. HAVE SOME EMPATHY. DON’T MAKE IT ABOUT YOU.

It’s hard to make it not about us when we are attacked as white people.

But remember: White nationalists are a terror threat. The excuse for suppressing us is that talking about race might make people violent. If that’s true, left-wing journalists have blood on their hands.

Governor Ron DeSantis’s (R-FL) press secretary tweeted a leaked document.
From new DHS whistleblower documents: draft brief being prepared for DHS Secretary’s meeting with Twitter executives to discuss how Big Tech & the federal government can collaborate to stifle dissent—er, “disinformation.”

Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) and Joshua Hawley (R-MO) wrote to the DHS demanding details on June 7. Their letter began:
Department of Homeland Security (DHS) information obtained by our offices through protected whistleblower disclosures raises serious concerns about DHS’s recently-paused Disinformation Governance Board (DGB) . . . . [C]ontrary to your May 4, 2022, testimony before the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs, the DGB was established to serve as much more than a simple “working group” to “develop guidelines, standards, [and] guardrails” for protecting civil rights and civil liberties. . . . DGB was designed to be the Department’s central hub, clearinghouse and gatekeeper for Administration policy and response to whatever it happened to decide was “disinformation.”
Nina Jankowitz would have been the head of the Biden Administration’s “Disinformation Governance Board.” It’s getting hard to believe that censorship of white advocates and political dissidents comes only from the private sector.
Finally, white NFL fans should take a hard look at themselves.

On Wednesday, Del Rio defended a reply he made on Twitter two days earlier, when he tweeted, “Would love to understand ‘the whole story’ about why the summer of riots, looting, burning and the destruction of personal property is never discussed but this is??? #CommonSense.”
