Journalist Sam Stein Tries to Rescue Sen. Markey After Trying to Fight Musk, Who Didn’t Take the Bait

Journalist Sam Stein Tries to Rescue Sen. Markey After Trying to Fight Musk, Who Didn’t Take the Bait

“Are we Russia or China, Sam?”

I am not of the Elon Musk worship clan. He’s not a savior or anything like that, but like President Donald Trump, he can break people just by being.

Musk triggers people just for existing, which helps expose a person’s true intentions and personality.

The whole fiasco over check-marked and verified accounts brought out the mob, including Sen. Ed Markey (D-MA). He wasted his time and a Washington Post reporter’s time by making said reporter develop a fake account, impersonating him, getting verified, etc.

Markey boasted about it because he lacks self-awareness, demanding answers and blah blah from Musk.

You know, he could have just reported it to Twitter, but that doesn’t give Markey the attention he craves from others. In fact:

Well, Musk snarked back.

Markey, who, I guess, is not used to people mocking him, used the government to attack a private citizen.

Excuse me?

If that doesn’t scare you, then I don’t know what would.

If Congress can go after Elon Musk, they sure as heck can go after you and me. And we don’t have Musk’s lawyers.

Then here comes Politico White House Editor and MSNBC talking head Sam Stein backing Markey against Musk.

Always risky…hmmm…did Stein forget how to do his job? Also, Musk didn’t attack Markey. He snarked and made fun of his Twitter account.

Don’t go through my tweets, Sam!

We all know politicians hunger for power, and the establishment media carries water for the Democrats.

But Musk and Trump made them break any facade they had to expose their true selves.

Now we have receipts proving Markey doesn’t care about his job or his constituents, and Stein finds it “risky” to be anything but agreeable to members of Congress.

The media is taking Markey’s side.

This is odd because the media didn’t have a problem when people snarked at Trump.

The Daily Beast’s AJ McDougall said, “Elon Musk just picked on the wrong lawmaker.”

ALL in Congress need mocking, pointing-at, and heckled. They see themselves as royalty and need kicking down many rungs.

Another day, another 50 cents after tax.

People have a tendency to take Twitter far too seriously.

Elon Musk walks and talks and laughs like what he is: a really good engineer.

That a US Senator would dare threaten a person like this over a minor tweak in a Tweet tells me that Sen. Markey is unworthy of his high public office, at least for today.

That our news media is trying to turn this stupid threat into some kind of reality tells me that our media has all the depth of an oil slick in a rain puddle. People who have no better judgment than to try to turn this minor non-event into news probably are not capable of figuring what’s important to me and the rest of the voters. This is why they don’t get my ear, nor my eyes, unless somebody else is choosing the channel.

Gosh, Musk stand and fights.
If only there was a guy in politics that would fight back without getting thrown under the bus…

Why should the parasite class be exempt from the rule the write for the rest of us?

    Because the parasites get to write the rules. Everything they impose on us should apply to them, including Social Security and Medicare, but nooooooo, they get special coverage because they are the self appointed “elites.”

Musk really needs to stick to space and cars and not politics. We are in a dangerous time politically with the Dem party becoming more like the CCP.

    “The Dems are becoming more like the CCP; therefore, Musk should desist from exposing their hypocrisy and authoritarian tendencies.” ¿?

      Whitewall in reply to moonmoth. | November 14, 2022 at 2:17 pm

      Elon can make Twitter work as he envisions it and by doing THAT it will do the talking to arrogant Senators like Markey instead of Elon. Succeed with Twitter first. The pols will keep.

    AF_Chief_Master_Sgt in reply to Whitewall. | November 14, 2022 at 12:30 pm

    Maybe Senators should not be using their political office to make others afraid to use their freedom of speech.

    Ironclaw in reply to Whitewall. | November 14, 2022 at 3:28 pm

    I see. Ignore the totalitarians until they become full-on nazis … great idea.

    JohnSmith100 in reply to Whitewall. | November 14, 2022 at 4:57 pm

    The same could be said for Sen. Markey, he should know better that to jab a business man with deep pockets and connections.

    Valerie in reply to Whitewall. | November 14, 2022 at 7:13 pm

    Too. Bloomin’. Late.

    He has bought Twitter and said he’s going to try to make it a place that does not censor based on political opinion. That, in itself, is a highly-charged political statement, in today’s current climate.

    And yet, his analysis is flawless: this country needs a place for a Committee of Correspondence that can handle a robust political discussion.

AF_Chief_Master_Sgt | November 14, 2022 at 12:26 pm

Senator: DO WHAT I FUCKING SAY OR WE WILL RUIN YOUR COMPANY THROUGH THE ADMINISTRATIVE STATE.

We The People: Maybe it is time to take away the power of ordinary people who get 2.3 million idiots in MassHole to put them in the Senate so he can LORD over 300+ million other ordinary people.

Nice company you got there Elon. It would be a shame if something happened to it.

The abject failure of those in power to shut down the Fauchi Fascists and the Branch Covidians instead of enabling them allowed the Karens to run wild. They fully revealed their totalitarian impulses and came to relish the taste of forcing Citizens to do their bidding.

Across the Nation only a very few leaders stood firm in rejecting the contrived crisis and told the totalitarians to pound sand. The failure of leadership by the rest of our political class emboldened the would be tyrants to seek other ways to impose their wishes and to not only silence dissenting voices but to destroy them.

    Like some wild animal that gets a taste for human blood, Democrats (and some Republicans, to be sure) get a taste for power and money, and can’t revert.

    Term limits.

      CommoChief in reply to Dimsdale. | November 15, 2022 at 10:33 am

      As much as I would prefer some sort of term limit the moment has passed for now. We have much bigger fish to fry in the immediate future.

      Perhaps once we have defeated the trans ideology, fixed the govt debt, restored energy independence, built the wall, ramped up interior immigration enforcement, enacted meaningful school choice.

These incidents are useful inasmuch as they demonstrate not just the contemptible and embarrassing slavishness and obsequiousness of the water-carrying media lapdogs/lackeys/propagandists, but, also, how intrinsically and obnoxiously totalitarian their political ethos is.

And, of course, the media twits’ total lack of self-awareness, with regard to how appallingly feckless and corrupt their toady act in perennially sucking up to Dumb-o-crat apparatchiks, and, parroting their narrative like trained seals, appears to rational minds.

Ed Markey is one of THE truly dimmest bulbs in the Senate. He’s perfect for the job, because he is completely ineffective. If only our other Senator, Big Chief Warren were as impotent as Markey.

Stein’s stupid musings are also funny, because the Dumb-o-crat media “journalists” love to portray themselves as allegedly “speaking truth to power,” shining knights on a crusade to slay the dragon, in the mold of Leftist media heroes Woodward and Bernstein, yet, in any incident in which these media twits actually are presented with a true opportunity to speak truth to power and go against the grain, e.g., with regard to the Russia Collusion hoax; the Wuhan Virus creation and “vaccines,” etc., they predictably and dutifully adhere to and parrot the Dumb-o-crat Party line and talking points, never risking anything or speaking out of turn or ruffling feathers.

That’s how utterly feckless and useless these hypocritical narcissists are.

Twitter should thank Markey for reporting the fraud, then permanently ban the WaPo reporter from Twitter. Maybe report him to the FBI for investigation of identity theft.

Nice company you have there. Would be a shame if some Fang-Banger Nuked it.

Sorry, I get my extortionate threats from the Feds interwingled, sometimes.

Whoa! I think Sam Stein pointed it out (‘though he certainly didn’t mean to)
If Markey can utilize his (elected by the people) position to attack individuals and “set the dogs on them”, then my country, the United States of America is in deep shit!

It sounds like Stalin would be proud of Malarkey and this urinalist.

    guyjones in reply to Ironclaw. | November 14, 2022 at 6:59 pm

    Or, Mao, Castro, Pol Pot, Idi Amin, “Papa Doc” Duvalier, Ayatollah Khomeini, et al. There are plenty of totalitarian thugs from despotic regimes large and small to use as ideological inspiration, where the vile Dumb-o-crats are concerned.

Strange how those authoritarian hack Dem politicians had no problem with Twitter when it “played ball” but now are threatening a private company with the full weight of government. Almost like Markey thinks Twitter is an essential service and so should not be in the business of censoring anyone much like a public utility.

    guyjones in reply to diver64. | November 14, 2022 at 7:09 pm

    The alacrity with which the Dumb-o-crats, their media lackeys/lapdogs and their corporate allies turned on on Twitter the minute that Musk closed on his acquisition, approaches light speed. Appalling and fascinating to witness. They can rationalize their boycotting machinations and vilification all they want, but, to rational minds it comes across as nothing more than an infantile and petulant tantrum/histrionics at losing control of an influential and decidedly biased media platform.

      Valerie in reply to guyjones. | November 14, 2022 at 7:19 pm

      It wasn’t just Twitter: it was Tesla, and it wasn’t on just one platform. It’s not the full-court press like they (still) use for the campaign of slander against Trump, but it’s there.

    BierceAmbrose in reply to diver64. | November 14, 2022 at 8:09 pm

    They were threatening n throwing brush-back pitches as soon as he got semi-serious about the purchase.

Nice work, Ms. Chastain!

So a reporter commits identity fraud against Twitter and the idiot Senator gets mad at the company owner…

What utter horseshit. And they call Republicans Fascists.

Am I the only one who reads his name as Sam Malarkey?? It just seems to fit better!
