Keith Olbermann, another Corporate Media shill, threw an on-air tantrum today after Trump announced pro-Russian businessman Rex Tillerson as Secretary of State. Like many of the MSM, Olbermann has no journalistic credentials nor any political experience, yet is considered an expert on policy by most of the Cultural Marxists. After Trump's electoral victory, Olbermann changed the name of his show to The Resistance. Olbermann is paid $2 million annually and has estimated net worth around $35 million. GQ, which hosts Olbermann's show, is a subsidiary of media conglomerate Advance Publications---owned by the Newhouse Family. Public records show that this group donated $33,000 to the DNC and donated heavily to the Clinton Campaign and state Democratic Party organizations and races.
Olbermann completely broke down on The Resistance, shaking and slobbering in front of a shocked audience, as he howled off a series of anti-Russian invectives. "We have lost a war with Russia!" Olbermann screamed, "We are no longer a sovereign nation! We are no longer a democracy! We are no longer a free people! We are the victims of a bloodless coup!"
This coup, according to sportscaster-turned-pundit Olbermann, is engineered by Russia. He calls upon Obama to declare a State of National Emergency because of the "traitorous indifference of the Republican Party and Donald J. Trump."
"The Attorney General must immediately appoint a Special Prosecutor to investigate what Donald Trump knew, when he knew it, and what, if any collusive links exist now or existed earlier between the Republican National Committee and the Russian Federation."
Olbermann's conspiracy theories and on-air hysterics rival those of Right-Wing extremists whom he's criticized; like Alex Jones, Michael Savage, or Richard Spencer. In fact, Olbermann goes even further and says---at the end of the broadcast---what sounds ominously like a call to some kind of violent action:
"Permitting Donald Trump to assume the Office of President reduces the chances that we will have any future elections! The nation and our freedoms hang by a thread; and the military apparatus of our country is about to be handed over to scum! Who are beholden to scum! Russian scum! As things are today, January 20th will not be an inauguration, but the end of the United States as an independent country! It will not be a peaceful change of power---it will be a usurpation! And the usurper has no validity, no credibility, no authority under the Constitution. Resist!"
Here we have yet another entitled elitist posing as a populist and going completely berserk when things don't go his way. Recall, too, that Olbermann is part of the same chorus of media degenerates who've been calling for censorship of Right-Wing sites---allegedly on the grounds that they incite paranoia and violence. It's likely that the Left sees no hypocrisy in supporting Olbermann.
Smug, self-appointed Elites like Olbermann and his bosses at Advance live in constant dread of exposure. The foreign media, the Internet, and sites like Wiki Leaks and Open Secrets are proving that these people are not the Master Race they've been presenting themselves to be---in fact, they're usually even proven to be below the average American in terms of intelligence and moral character.
Part of next year's presumed efforts to drain the swamp can include public activism against the media machine.
