Drudge Loves Infowars: Why?
Bill Quick

DRUDGE REPORT 2014®

Man Wearing 2nd Amendment T-shirt Thrown Out of Voting Booth…

Dunno why Drudge keeps pushing Infowars.

This story is bullshit.

I think the real crime here is laws preventing freedom of expression at polling places.  Seems to me such measures should be facially unconstitutional.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

Drudge Loves Infowars: Why? — 3 Comments

  1. Personally, my expressed viewpoint would have been: “If anybody who comes in here to vote is so weak-willed that they can be swayed into voting a particular way due to the printing on a t-shirt, that person should be declared, ipso facto, to be incompetent to cast a ballot in an acceptably legal manner”, or words to that effect.

    Having stated that, as firmly, loudly and publicly as possible, however, like Mr. Driskill, I would make the necessary “adjustment”, in this case, in order to go ahead and cast my ballot.

    Don’t allow the “perfect” to drive out the “good”.

    (My take on Drudge: I don’t really think it’s so much a desire to promote Infowars, but rather Drudge’s “numbers” maybe slipping a bit – he’s not nearly as “cutting-edge” as used to be the case – and therefore any little bit of “muckraking”, even if it’s only momentarily and/or partially valid, is used to feed the “feed”…)

    • Agreed – a friend of mine from my days working and living in FL used to call Drudge’s site “The Grudge Report”. I had to agree that, at times, that easily appeared to be the case.

      Point is, of course, Drudge’s “thing” is no longer nearly as out-in-front-of-it-all as it was, he’s doubtless feeling the results of that, and is thrashing as hard as possible to try to overcome that partial-loss of stature.

      And it ain’t workin’ – seems like he’s turning ever more into the supermarket/chain drugstore tabloid of the IntarToobs; next stop, three-headed half-alien babies being born in Idaho, and imminent invasion of Earth by giant semi-cockroaches from the Lesser Magellanic Cloud…no film or pics, ’cause the photog got eaten alive…
