The Heartland Institute 

Media Chickens of the 

Frankfurt School Have

Come Home to Roost

By Michael Walsh  

Last week’s press conference was a physical and mental check-up on the White House press corps, whose jejunity, mental impairment, and ideological blindness bespoke a dangerous warning sign for both the White House and the nation. 

These people are sick, and getting sicker. And until they’re all in quarantine, we’re all in danger of catching what’s obviously now a deadly communicable disease.

According to Dr. Jackson, the president’s health is excellent, especially for a 71-year-old man who subsists on little sleep and an old-fashioned American diet... in the mechanistic world-view of “progressivism,” there can be no mysteries; everything must have a cause and effect, tied directly to diet, exercise, sex, race, and climate change.  Things cannot simply just be.

[Senator Flake] said. “An American president who cannot take criticism—who must constantly deflect and distort and distract—who must find someone else to blame—is charting a very dangerous path.”

Now Flake is a mendacious fool, who never would be have been re-elected in Arizona. Still, when he compares the sitting president to Josef Stalin and calls Trump’s derision of a manifestly dishonest media “an assault as unprecedented as it is unwarranted,” he’s also an ahistorical, ignorant fool.
