If I understand the Left (and the “far-left!”) correctly, anyone to the right of Maxine Waters is not merely “conservative,” “traditional,” “conventional,” or heaven forbid a “moderate,” no no no. You’re a fascist, and by golly, even if you’re black, you’re a “radical” “racist” “right-wing extremist,” a “white supremacist,” and parenthetically, a “Republican.” It’s hard to not laugh. And so I do.

Today’s laughable left-wing blather is from the Globe & Mail’s Lawrence Martin (my bolding):

…Hit hard by Charlottesville were far-right outlets that have supported Mr.Trump. With Fox News, whose support he desperately needs, Mr. Trump is losing ground as well. …

… James Murdoch is not about to turn it into a more balanced media vehicle like the traditional U.S. networks, but he is likely to move it in a more conventionally conservative direction…

Whoooboy. CNN, NBC, ABC, CBS, see — they’re “balanced” — notwithstanding their demonstrably left and far-left bias in actual fact. FNC is not merely “conservative-tolerant,” as I correctly — and in a balanced way — dub them, they’re actually “far-right.”  (Notice there’s rarely just a plain old “right” or a “center-right” — it’s always “far-right?” Also notice MSNBC and CNN are never described as “far-left.” There is no “far-left” to the “balanced” set.)

And so — again if I understand correctly — Lawrence Martin is “balanced,” while those to the right of him are “far-right” — even if they’re liberals. Like Maxine Waters, this is stupidity.
