It’s bad enough Eric Boehlert stole Mark Steyn’s putdown for his Media Matters colleagues, a.k.a., “George Soros Steno Pool.”
“Conspiracy stenographer Matthew Vadum types up the nonsense for David Horowitz’s Newsreal,” types Boehlert, in a refreshingly typo-lite post.
Vadum had wondered why police still hadn’t charged union thugs for beating anti-Obamacare protester Kenneth Gladney back in August. As Vadum explained:
…police had arrested multiple uniformed Service Employees International Union (SEIU) members for assaulting Kenneth Gladney in St. Louis. (The SEIU is an integral component of Health Care for America Now, the Soros-funded coterie pushing for the government health care takeover.) One of the accused in Gladneyâ€™s attack justified himself by saying, â€œHe attacked America!â€ Ironically, he claimed Gladney had attacked America while handing out flags bearing the inscription, â€œDonâ€™t Tread on Me,â€ the slogan of the American Revolution. (Hereâ€™s the video of the aftermath.) Media reports indicate that a black SEIU member arrested in the assault called Gladney, who is also black, a racial slur, indicating he does not see his opponent as an authentic member of his own race.
The official Media Matters line about the Gladney incident is that “right wing nuts” are blowing the event out of proportion. Except now, according to Boehlert, we’re also “anti-law enforcement” crazies, too, for wondering why charges haven’t been laid. That’s pretty rich coming from leftists, who’ve rarely met a cop killer they didn’t like.
(By the way: Mark Steyn sits in for Rush Limbaugh today. Which means “the Zacharys” at Media Matters will be dutifully taking down his every “offensive” word. Which is nothing at all like stenography…)
