Josh Hawley Claims Media Trying To Silence Him -- During Event Hosted By Media Outlet

Source: Huffington Post

Josh Hawley is convinced that media organizations are out to get him, trying to take away his voice as a powerless, everyday Republican senator from Missouri.

On Tuesday morning, Hawley’s latest grievance was directed at The Washington Post ― the outlet that was giving him a prominent platform to promote his new book.
“Don’t try to censor, cancel and silence me here,” Hawley said.
“Senator, we’re hosting you here,” technology policy reporter Cat Zakrzewski replied.


Republicans have made railing against “cancel culture” a significant part of their platform on social issues, claiming that society at large is hostile to their ideas and trying to banish them simply because they’re conservative. They believe that they are the real victims.
They often make these claims that they are being silenced from their prominent positions in government, at think tanks, in academia and in the media.

Indeed, on Tuesday, one of the nation’s most prominent newspapers gave Hawley ― a man who cheered on the mob that attacked that U.S. Capitol ― 30 minutes to promote his new book on taking on Big Tech and to share his ideas about political issues.

The sad thing is that 70% of all registered Republicans now buy this sort of bullshit.

1. All little Josh cares about is getting his face on the air,

and repeating his memes of being the victim.

3. Spoiled little brat. I'm embarrassed and I've lived in MO for roughly 60 years...

I've never ran into a fellow Missourian with the gutter mouth that he has...

6. As I understand it, he does not actually live in MO. He uses a relative's address. He lives in VA.

My condolences to VA.

8. I suspect that he's gunning to run for President one day...that's why (IMHO) he's shooting for

being the gutter mouth on the street, to be a rump replacement should that moment come (soon I hope with the idiot being charged for tax fraud, obstruction of justice and more. Why otherwise is he so quiet? I suspect that he knows the writing is on the wall.

No rest, no peace for these thugs...

9. Not related to your post, but....

Are you sure about those "bitter tears of Trump supporters"? They contain electrolytes, which plants love (or so I've been told).

12. Dammit! You mean to tell me we forgot to shut him up again? One of these days by golly ...

... I wouldn't dream of shutting him or his skivvy friends up. If it isn't self damning, it's at least unintentionally, unselfconsciously funny
