DaTechGuy's 2nd Law of Democrat/Media Outrage

A while back we pos­tu­lated DaTechGuy’s the­ory (law) of Media Out­rage which states:

The level of Out­rage or inter­est of the media and their allies on the left con­cern­ing any insult or pre­var­i­ca­tion con­cern­ing a per­son or thing will rou­tinely be equal to the inverse of the degree of the polit­i­cal dis­tance between said media /​left­ists and and the tar­get of said insult or pre­var­i­ca­tion at the time it is made.

How­ever look­ing at the the­ory (law) as it stands it seems to be miss­ing a few things. First of all the the­ory (law) while sup­ported by the cur­rent evi­dence, only cov­ers words, and not so much actions or beliefs. nor does it con­vey the pro­gres­sion of cer­tain things from accept­able to unacceptable.

So I’d like to pro­pose a corol­lary to this the­ory or DaTechGuy’s 2nd Law of Democrat/​Media Outrage.

The level of accep­tance of the posi­tions and/​or actions of any group or orga­ni­za­tion by the left and media is directly pro­por­tional to their cur­rent or poten­tial value in elect­ing lib­eral Democrats.

As we noted in our first post in March, the test of any such the­ory or law requires evi­dent to show it is true. Namely can we see a pro­gres­sion on the media/​left posi­tions based on sup­port for the Demo­c­rat party?

As a mat­ter of fact we can!

We can see this pro­gres­sion in many ways for exam­ple take the con­fed­er­acy:

When Democ­rats’ national posi­tion depended on unwa­ver­ing sup­port from “the Solid South,” we got lots of pro-​Southern pro­pa­ganda: the Lost Cause, Gone With The Wind, Dis­ney­fied Uncle Remus, etc. As a vital Demo­c­rat con­stituency group, south­ern­ers, even prac­ti­cal neo-​Confederates, were absolved of all sins as long as they stayed in line.

A great exam­ple of this was cited by Dinesh D’Sousa

In fact as late as 2003 Howard Dean was say­ing things like this:

“I still want to be the can­di­date for guys with Con­fed­er­ate flags in their pickup trucks,” the for­mer Ver­mont gov­er­nor said in an inter­view pub­lished Sat­ur­day in the Des Moines Reg­is­ter. “We can’t beat George Bush unless we appeal to a broad cross-​section of Democrats.”

This is actu­ally no sur­prise because despite the MSM nar­ra­tives to the con­trary Democ­rats still held the major­ity of the State House of Rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the old con­fed­er­acy. But as the Democ­rats went far­ther left by 2008 and became a sec­u­lar party they con­tin­ued to lose states south of the Mason Dixon line until today of the bible belt and bor­der states only Delaware (which they first took in 2009) and Mary­land which they’ve con­tin­u­ally held for almost 100 years remain in their hands and the worm sud­denly turned. As Glenn Reynolds put it

Now the South isn’t “solid” any­more — or, more accu­rate, it’s becom­ing pretty solidly Repub­li­can — so rather than receiv­ing cul­tural dis­pen­sa­tions, it now gets tar­geted for cul­tural warfare.

Or con­sider Chris­tian­ity. As long as the Demo­c­rat Party had a large con­tin­gent of reli­gious vot­ers then the Bill Clin­tons, Hillary Clin­tons, Al Gores and even Barack Obama’s didn’t attack or demo­nize those who had fol­lowed the same teach­ings of Chris­tian­ity that have been taught for thou­sands of years. In fact back in the Clin­ton years the Democ­rats insisted that any­one claim­ing that the Democ­rats were push­ing for Gay Mar­riage were alarmists.

But once it became clear in 2012 that it was the Gay lobby and the money and votes they need would be more crit­i­cal Chris­tian­ity was some­thing to be ditched and Gay Mar­riage and Trans­gen­derism was to be embraced. When it became clear that even the Chris­t­ian black vote would not turn on Obama sud­denly any­one who didn’t fol­low the Gay Marriage/​Transgender agenda were big­ots and haters.

And then there is Islam. Dur­ing the 90’s and up until 2008 it was not con­tro­ver­sial for Amer­i­can pres­i­dent and mem­bers of con­gress to sup­port the wars against rad­i­cal Islam in Iraq or Afghanistan and to con­demn acts of Islamic Terror.

But once sup­port­ers of the Mus­lim Broth­er­hood started open­ing their wal­lets, par­tic­u­larly in big cities, to build mosques, and fund uni­ver­sity pro­grams, and Democ­rats fig­ured out that even they can’t vote the dead if their aborted and the ghastly Tom Hagen math takes over:

In 20 years the chil­dren of Mus­lims now being raised on the tenets of Sharia law in Amer­ica will be old enough to vote and Democ­rats going to make sure they get those votes when the time come, not now but 1020 years from now.

This is how sud­denly Orando goes from a ter­ror attack by a Gay hat­ing mus­lim to some­thing to be blamed on the GOP and the NRA.

It’s also how an Amer­i­can pres­i­dent (Obama) and sec­re­tary of state (Kerry) become will­ing to throw Israel under the bus to keep Islam and Bernie Bros happy.

the truth is the Bernie Sanders democ­rats are anti Israel and have spent the entire Obama admin­is­tra­tion court­ing a grow­ing seg­ment of the pop­u­la­tion that is pro dead jews and grow­ing a base, par­tic­u­larly on cam­pus that hates Israel openly and hates Jews clandestinely.

It’s also inci­den­tally why the ACLU, found itself under attack for uphold­ing one of the few non­par­ti­san prin­ci­ples they had retained, namely free speech. Once their defense of free speech was incon­ve­nient to the left the attacks began and the ACLU evolved, very quickly. Why?

But a new gen­er­a­tion of ACLU mem­bers and donors, who surged to the group after the elec­tion of Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump, know the group pri­mar­ily as a cham­pion of causes typ­i­cally aligned with the left, like press­ing for greater immi­grant and LGBT rights, and reduc­ing crim­i­nal penalties.

Since the elec­tion, the ACLU’s mem­ber­ship has nearly quadru­pled to 1.6 mil­lion and the group has received $83 mil­lion in online dona­tions, said Stacy Sul­li­van, an ACLU spokeswoman.

In Novem­ber, the ACLU solicited dona­tions on its home page with a pic­ture of the then president-​elect and the words, “We’ll see you in court.”

And as the corol­lary notes, the far­ther you get from the the left’s posi­tions, the less tol­er­ated your posi­tions become.

So if you are a group or indi­vid­ual or even a busi­ness and won­der how the left will react at any given time, my advice is to sim­ply apply DaTechGuy’s Laws of Democrat/​Media Out­rage and you can see what’s com­ing every sin­gle time.

A while back we postulated DaTechGuy’s theory (law) of Media Outrage which states:

The level of Outrage or interest of the media and their allies on the left concerning any insult or prevarication concerning a person or thing will routinely be equal to the inverse of the degree of the political distance between said media / leftists and and the target of said insult or prevarication at the time it is made.

However looking at the theory (law) as it stands it seems to be missing a few things.  First of all the theory (law) while supported by the current evidence, only covers words, and not so much actions or beliefs. nor does it convey the progression of certain things from acceptable to unacceptable.

So I’d like to propose a corollary to this theory  or DaTechGuy’s 2nd Law of Democrat/Media Outrage.

The level of acceptance of the positions and/or actions of any group or organization by the left and media is directly proportional to their current or potential value in electing liberal Democrats.

As we noted in our first post in March, the test of any such theory or law requires evident to show it is true.  Namely can we see a progression on the media/left positions based on support for the Democrat party?

As a matter of fact we can!

We can see this progression in many ways for example take the confederacy:

When Democrats’ national position depended on unwavering support from “the Solid South,” we got lots of pro-Southern propaganda: the Lost Cause, Gone With The Wind, Disneyfied Uncle Remus, etc. As a vital Democrat constituency group, southerners, even practical neo-Confederates, were absolved of all sins as long as they stayed in line.

A great example of this was cited by Dinesh D’Sousa

In fact as late as 2003  Howard Dean was saying things like this:

“I still want to be the candidate for guys with Confederate flags in their pickup trucks,” the former Vermont governor said in an interview published Saturday in the Des Moines Register. “We can’t beat George Bush unless we appeal to a broad cross-section of Democrats.”

This is actually no surprise because despite the MSM narratives to the contrary Democrats still held the majority of the State House of Representatives of the old confederacy.  But as the Democrats went farther left by 2008 and became a secular party they continued to lose states south of the Mason Dixon line until today of the bible belt and border states only Delaware (which they first took in 2009) and Maryland which they’ve continually held for almost 100 years remain in their hands and the worm suddenly turned.  As Glenn Reynolds put it

Now the South isn’t “solid” anymore — or, more accurate, it’s becoming pretty solidly Republican — so rather than receiving cultural dispensations, it now gets targeted for cultural warfare.

Or consider Christianity.  As long as the Democrat Party had a large contingent of religious voters then the Bill Clintons, Hillary Clintons, Al Gores and even Barack Obama’s didn’t attack or demonize those who had followed the same teachings of Christianity that have been taught for thousands of years.  In fact back in the Clinton years the Democrats insisted that anyone claiming that the Democrats were pushing for Gay Marriage were alarmists.

But once it became clear in 2012 that it was the Gay lobby and the money and votes they need would be more critical Christianity was something to be ditched and Gay Marriage and Transgenderism was to be embraced.  When it became clear that even the Christian black vote would not turn on Obama suddenly anyone who didn’t follow the Gay Marriage/Transgender agenda were bigots and haters.

And then there is Islam.  During the 90’s and up until 2008 it was not controversial for American president and members of congress to support the wars against radical Islam in Iraq or Afghanistan and to condemn acts of Islamic Terror.

But once supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood started opening their wallets, particularly in big cities, to build mosques, and fund university programs, and Democrats figured out that even they can’t vote the dead if their aborted and the ghastly Tom Hagen math takes over:

 In 20 years the children of Muslims now being raised on the tenets of Sharia law in America will be old enough to vote and Democrats going to make sure they get those votes when the time come, not now but 10-20 years from now. 

This is how suddenly Orando goes from a terror attack by a Gay hating muslim to something to be blamed on the GOP and the NRA.

It’s also how an American president (Obama) and secretary of state (Kerry) become willing to throw Israel under the bus to keep Islam and Bernie Bros happy.

the truth is the Bernie Sanders democrats are anti Israel and have spent the entire Obama administration courting a growing segment of the population that is pro dead jews and growing a base, particularly on campus that hates Israel openly and hates Jews clandestinely.

It’s also incidentally why the ACLU, found itself under attack for upholding one of the few nonpartisan principles they had retained, namely free speech.  Once their defense of free speech was inconvenient to the left the attacks began and the ACLU evolved, very quickly.  Why?

But a new generation of ACLU members and donors, who surged to the group after the election of President Donald Trump, know the group primarily as a champion of causes typically aligned with the left, like pressing for greater immigrant and LGBT rights, and reducing criminal penalties.

Since the election, the ACLU’s membership has nearly quadrupled to 1.6 million and the group has received $83 million in online donations, said Stacy Sullivan, an ACLU spokeswoman.

In November, the ACLU solicited donations on its home page with a picture of the then president-elect and the words, “We’ll see you in court.”

And as the corollary notes, the farther you get from the the left’s positions, the less tolerated your positions become.

So if you are a group or individual or even a business and wonder how the left will react at any given time, my advice is to simply apply DaTechGuy’s Laws of Democrat/Media Outrage and you can see what’s coming every single time.
