The MSM is complicit in much treason, election fraud,
failing to vet (on purpose), and undermining
the US Constitution.

Please don’t tell my mom I’m a journalist. She still thinks I play piano in a whorehouse.

From the article: "Journalism is not intended as a weapon . . . it is used to inform, not inflame."

Unless the subject is conservatives, Christians, or Republicans.

“I wonder what happens when queer couples go to a Muslim baker for a wedding cake?”

Simple, short answer: Mr. Muslim goes ‘full Red Queen’ on them - screams “Allahu Fubar!” and then hacks their heads off while screaming “Sentence first, trail later! Off with their heads! Off with their heads!”

They won't; they want to isolate Christians and keep Muslims on the sidelines as long as they can.
