The Left’s inherent ideological cowardice

Ah, leftists. They like to talk, they love to prevaricate, they love their echo chambers where their fellow leftists will swoon over their “wokeness”. What they really do not love, is debate. They hate it so much they cry HARASSMENT when anyone tries to debate them, or tries to correct their false narratives. Kirsten Powers is a case in point

CNN political analyst Kirsten Powers announced she was deleting her Twitter application on Wednesday after she said she was harassed on the popular platform regarding her criticism of the Covington High School students’ interaction with Native American activist Nathan Phillips that went viral over the weekend.

“Every day I get up and say ‘no more Twitter’ and somehow end up back here,” Powers wrote to her more than 300,000 followers. “I always regret it. Deleting the app now.”

The decision by the former Clinton administration official and current USA Today columnist comes after she blamed the Covington High School students for “disrespecting an Indigenous elder” while criticizing some media outlets for playing “both sides” journalism.

“I agree with [Talking Points Memo editor and publisher Josh Marshall] that watching all the videos (which I did) does not change the fundamental problem: the boys disrespecting an Indigenous elder,” wrote Powers on Wednesday. “The [people] harassing me to change my mind cannot convince me I didn’t see what I saw. Learn to respect difference of opinion.”

“This ⁦@washingtonpost⁩ story captures the real lesson of this episode—don’t succumb to orchestrated harassment campaigns against journalists,” Powers wrote in another.

Translation “Even though my eyes tell me the media got it wrong, I cannot reject my beloved narrative. These boys are guilty because they are White, wearing MAGA hats, and attend Catholic school, so no should dare criticize, or even question the woke media’s take!”

Oh Ms. Powers, if you cannot take criticism………………
