WaPo reporter LITERALLY does what Vivek Ramaswamy said she would over "white supremacy" answer, gets fact-checked hard
If they weren't so evil and detrimental to our country, you could almost admire journalismers shamelessness and lack of self respect. Vivek Ramaswamy told a Washington Post content creator exactly what she would do as he was making her look stupid... and she did it anyway. It's remarkable.
To recap. Hours after the White House announced he was kicking off his campaign with a Saturday speech claiming everyone who disagrees with him is white supremacist (I'm paraphrasing), a WaPo journalismer asked Vivek to condemn white supremacy twice. Let's focus on this one sentence from Vivek's response.
"I know you're going to go print this headline tomorrow, I know how your game works, 'Vivek Ramaswamy Won't Condemn White Supremacy.'"
She did it anyway.
I went with a screencapture so you had a moment to appreciate the journalisming before BOOM goes the community notes.
I asked Vivek if he condemned white supremacy. Vivek said to “stop picking on this farce of some figment that exists at some infinitesimally small fringe.” He said he condemns “vicious racial discrimination” but would not “bend the knee” and condemn white supremacy. https://t.co/mwNTKGKF1w

Vivek gave her thoughtful paragraphs when all she wanted was a five-second soundbite. One where the candidate repeated specific words back to her in a specific order she demanded.
Here's Ramaswamy's full answer:
I'm not going to recite some catechism for you. I'm against vicious racial discrimination in this country. I'm not pledging allegiance to your new religion of modern wokeism, which actually fit the test. I'm not going to bend the knee to your religion. I'm not going to ask you to bend to mine and I'm not going to bend the knee to yours.
And frankly, this is why people have lost trust, and I know you're going to go print this headline tomorrow, I know how your game works, "Vivek Ramaswamy Won't Condemn White Supremacy." Because you asked a stupid question. The reality is, I condemn vicious racial discrimination in this country, but the kind of vicious racial discrimination we see today is discrimination on the basis of race in a very different direction.
After Steve King announced he was endorsing me, predictably a lame reporter from @WaPo tried to get me to play the game of “denouncing white supremacy,” while she refused to actually define “white supremacy” which in recent years encompasses concepts like “punctuality” & “the… pic.twitter.com/V4e01qcsqw

We saw this last year with Dave Portnoy. El Pres was throwing a pizza festival to support local pizza places, but he also goes on Fox News and told a bad joke ten years ago, so the media looks for any excuse to destroy him. That includes calling the pizza place and asking "Hey, did you hear all these bad things about Portnoy?"
The journalisming industry doesn't care. As long as they get shout-outs from within their elitist NYC/DC bubbles, it doesn't matter that the rest of us see through their bullsh*t. Yet, for some reason, when a poll comes out listing journalism as the least trusted institution in America, they don't understand why.
Brodigan is Grand Poobah of this here website and when he isn't writing words about things enjoys day drinking, pro-wrestling, and country music. You can find him on the Twitter too.
