A witch and a monkey: The worst of NC’s political driveby media, or The freakin’ Wizard of Oz? (You make the call.)

binker1In 2013, we BUSTED WRAL’s Mark “Binky” Binker for running with an utter fabrication about the late senator Martin Nesbitt allegedly calling then-DHHS secretary Aldona Wos a ‘witch.’  NO ONE — not named Binker — could find any actual evidence it happened.  Yet, WRAL never apologized.  And Binky STILL has a job. (Amazingly, so does Laura Leslie.  She’s been seen showing her face around the legislative building in recent days.)

Well, it appears The N&O’s Colin “Gay Stuff!!!!!!!!!”™ Campbell is trying to give Binky a run for his money in the ”Most weaselly, mealy-mouthed biased punk in the press room” contest.  (It’s a crowded field.  The OPPOSITE of what the environment is like in the newsroom over at Colin’s money-bleeding, layoff-ravaged employer’s offices.) binker roll

In 2014, Binky and Colin’s former colleague John Frank covered a pro-life group’s award presentation to Greg Brannon and came away with some asinine drivel about him praising slavery. Colin went to the Donald Trump Rally in Raleigh last night.  He devoted an unusual amount of column inches to some millenial Bernie Sanders supporters AND THIS: 

[…] Someone in the crowd yelled out “he’s a monkey” while Trump was speaking about Obama.[…]

Really?  In a crowd of nearly 4000, ol’ Colin was able to discern that AND be sure that it was not one of the Bernie Sanders folks or Progress NC troublemakers he also showed love to in his report?  (Perhaps the alleged perpetrator was ACTUALLY commenting while pointing out Messr. Campbell to his friends.) 

Why was it necessary to print that?

ObST7IJuI’m a Carolina Panthers fan.  Should I be held responsible for everything every drunk in a Panthers jersey says or does in the stands on Game Day?  Should Ron Rivera?

If you think the answer is YES, then driveby media fire should be trained on Hillary and Bernie over all of those vicious, rioting thugs terrorizing seniors, women and children simply trying to attend a Trump speech.  (I bet every one of them is a registered DEM with a Hillary or Bernie sticker pasted somewhere on at least one of their possessions.)  There weren’t a lot of Young Republicans tearing up Ferguson, Missouri or Baltimore.  I BET there were *a few* Hillary or BarryO voters. 

I understand the guy that shot up the Orlando club was a Democrat who thought Hillary was great. Should Ma-Damn™ be held responsible for what he did? 

I don’t necessarily endorse EVERYTHING Haymaker fans say or do.  I appreciate their support of our work here.  But they are adults and OUTSIDE my sphere of influence.  (I am not their daddy.) normal_monkey_witch

I think if you commissioned a study to identify the political preferences of the perpetrators of some of the rudest, vilest, most violent behavior in our society, the findings would be heavily weighted toward The Left and the Democrats.

Ol’ Colin is dipped his toe into the time-honored driveby tradition of smearing ANY and EVERY Republican pol (and their supporters) as racist.  It’s kind of like McCarthy’s use of “communist” in the 50s.  Who wants to be slapped with THAT label?

You can throw the word ‘racist’ out there, and can make almost any white person / person in power back off and back away.

It’s starting to look like Binky and “Gay Stuff!!!” might have a bright post-driveby future in writing fairy tales.

  1. “… the political preferences of the perpetrators of some of the rudest, vilest, most violent behavior in our society, the findings would be heavily weighted toward The Left and the Democrats.”
    That is, you will not be surprised, completely opposite of what I would estimate. I am sure it would depend on just WHO is doing the assessment/their criteria.

    1. Well just take into account that you do not see Conservatives in the street cursing, or at UNC BOG meetings disrupting business and taking over podiums, or shouting down speakers who may not espouse their views (just Google Triggly Puff to see an example of that one), or have their funding for speakers shut down as it usually is on any college campus.

      Heck, how often are leftists called racists, homophobes, etc. at the first word they speak? This systemic name calling is only done in order to shut down debate rather than to evaluate if the point of view is valid. The leftist snowflakes cannot take their perspective being brought into question, because as history always shows, they are wrong.

      You obviously are not paying attention to the tactics of the radical left or are just in denial since you are a member of the group.

      1. You need to get out more. Sure what you said happens.
        So does the pummeling of people of color who show up at Trump rallies. And the vile names I and others have been called for expressing opinions at other web sites by professed Conservatives is ridiculous. Your last two paragraphs mirrored right back at you.

        1. Hmmm, I wold like to see a conservative blog that can compete with the hate I used to get for bringing up points at C Fitzsimons’ blog. They must have had paid trolls there to scare off dissent as when I visit now without commenting they have all disappeared. I would like to see your “examples” as I am either just drawn to blogs like this site that have some manners or I am missing out on the fun.

          I would also like to see the examples of pummeling people at Trump rallies….last I saw in San Jose it was the opposite in that the progressives organized a mob and were beating Trump supporters and throwing eggs. I would bet if you provided “evidence” it would be the usual leftist/Alinsky tactic of sending someone in to cause a disturbance in order to get that specific reaction.

  2. Most of NC’s media these days seems to be a cross between Pravda and TASS of Stalin’s day and the National Enquirer of today. They are an ideologically biased joke, and probably less competent than the Enquirer in uncovering actual news..

    How far out they are is illustrated by the Charlotte Observer editorial that schoolgirls just just learn to live with having anatomical boys in their showers. These clowns are way off in la-la land.

    1. Well, how many people actually read those clowns anyway. You can tell from the red ink they are all spilling that the people are seeing through the sham. All they are doing these days is preaching to the choir…and fewer and fewer of them can read….or afford a newspaper.

  3. I agree with the fact that the leftists insist on projecting on their opponents. They typically devolve into shutuppery very quickly. It is always hilarious to me when they say Conservatives are bigots, racists, etc. when they are the epitome of those adjectives.

    I think it is very unfortunate the media has devolved into a pawn of the Radical Left. It used to be that you had an outlet for each side of the story, I just finished reading some material on the Linclon Douglas debates and it was noted that there were papers supporting each side. These days you have only one perspective available in the mainstream which is unfortunate. I imagine that history is not going to look kindly on the first part of this century. Between the one sided political views, and the faux science of globalclimatewarmingcoolingchange that is all over the media…they will be looked on as a laughing stock.

  4. There is a wealth of information on the Internet. The Daily Haymaker being one of them!
    I have not had TV for 7 years and rarely read a newspaper. They insult my intelligence!

  5. Correction please. McCarthy accused no one of being a ” communist” that wasn’t one. As a junior senator, he was tasked with an awesome responsibility. Though he did his job well considering the howling and opposition he faced, it was the same type of smears and distorted attacks that are used against legislators trying to do their jobs today.
