Sen. Blackburn, Trump Jr. Slam Karine Jean-Pierre For False Claim About Michael Knowles: ‘Spewing Misinformation And Lies’ | Eastern North Carolina Now

    White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre faced backlash late this week after falsely claiming during a White House press briefing that Daily Wire host Michael Knowles called for the "eradication of transgender people" during a speech at CPAC.

    During her comments to reporters, Jean-Pierre referenced Knowles' speech last Saturday when he called for the "eradication" of radical gender ideology. Several Left-wing media outlets which initially claimed that Knowles called for the "eradication" of people, not an ideology, later corrected their reporting. But Jean-Pierre, just before misrepresenting Knowles' words, said the White House must "call out the shameful, hateful, and dangerous attacks that we have been seeing on the LGBTQI community."

    "Look, it started with a speaker at a conservative conference calling for the eradication of transgender people," Jean-Pierre falsely claimed.

    Knowles responded on Twitter by asking Jean-Pierre, "why are you lying about what I said?"

    Several major conservative figures defended Knowles in response to Jean-Pierre's false claims.

    Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) tweeted: "The White House and @PressSec have become experts at spewing misinformation and lies. They want to scare Americans into submission. @michaeljknowles"

    Donald Trump Jr. tweeted, "For all of their BS crying and smears of Tucker for courageously reporting on the J6 footage, no group of people routinely and knowingly misrepresents the truth to fit their fictional narratives more than the Biden White House."

    Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) defended Knowles in response to a question from the far-Left publication New Republic, saying, "By transgenderism, I assume he means the ideology of suggesting to kids who are suffering anxiety, depression, or what have you that there's something fundamentally wrong with their bodies and they need to change their gender."

    "We're having that debate in Missouri right now about whether we should push kids toward gender reassignment surgery," he added. "I think no, no, no, no, no, no."

    During the CPAC speech, Knowles argued that gender ideology is built on false premises about the human condition and that it could not be imposed or indulged in any context without granting credence to those premises, which undermines the foundations of society itself.

    "For the good of society and especially for the good of the poor people who have fallen prey to this confusion, transgenderism must be eradicated from public life entirely, the whole preposterous ideology - at every level," Knowles said.

    Left-wing outlets and Democrat politicians quickly reacted in outrage to Knowles' speech, misconstruing his comments as targeting individuals, not an ideology. The Daily Wire promptly demanded retractions and apologies from Rolling Stone, Yahoo News, Huffington Post, and The Daily Beast over their coverage of his speech.

    The Daily Beast edited its original headline, which stated Knowles called for the "transgender community" to be eradicated, to reflect that the podcast host called for eradicating "transgenderism," not people who believe they are transgender. Rolling Stone made a similar update.

    Knowles told Fox News Channel's Tucker Carlson on Monday night that he was surprised by the media headlines, and a California lawmaker who accused him of calling for "genocide."

    "I have been called all sorts of nasty things by the liberal press, Tucker, so I tend to expect everything," Knowles began, conceding, "But I have to admit being accused of genocide did take me by surprise."

Considering how abjectly corrupt and civilly abusive the Left has become regarding the corrosive effect of their elected leaders; their entrenched and ruling bureaucracy; employing their failed Education Industry as Indoctrinators; their collusive private sector operators, such as the terminally discredited Legacy Media and Big Tech censorship of Free Speech: What will be the best course forward for hardworking Middle Americans, including the Patriot Class?
  Withdraw from society, go underground and plan for a resurgence when it is feasible to do so.
  Work within the confines of better policy by the People's government, once good sense and sanity is restored in the electorate at large, to achieve such.
  Are you a crazy, nut-job Insurrectionist? Everything is perfect within our plan to achieve our intended goals for the Socialist Left.
  Secession to form a true Constitutional Republic.

Karine Jean-Pierre checks a bunch of boxes as Press Secretary, which is all important in the Biden - Harris Administration, as the "first Black person, and the first openly LGBT."

Karine Jean-Pierre, however, checks yet one more auspicious box as the absolute worst Press Secretary is modern times. Since 1955, Karine Jean-Pierre sets a high standard for her infamous combination of constant incompetence, and abject dishonesty.

It does appear that Karine Jean-Pierre's previous positions in the propaganda business, serving her masters at and MSNBC, prepared her poorly for her Now pathetic purpose as the nation's chief information officer.
