In a Twitter thread discussing the results of the French presidential election, disgraced Lincoln Project co-founder Rick Wilson called for people to “mow down” journalist Glenn Greenwald and former Trump adviser Steve Bannon.
Wilson began his Sunday afternoon thread by saying incumbent French President Emmanuel Macron didn’t just “beat” National Rally candidate Marine Le Pen, but “he crushed her.”
“There’s no upside for the end of the decades-long Le Pen investment by Putin and others,” Wilson wrote. “The phony populism couldn’t hide the inner core of her pro-Putin, anti-immigrant, not-so-covert racial appeals,” he added. “Putin was — as Macron ably pointed out in one of the most decisive debate performances in history — her banker.”
In the thread, Wilson issued a threat to those he deemed Macron’s “enemies abroad,” which included Russian President Vladimir Putin, former White House chief strategist Bannon, and independent reporter Greenwald.
“Macron should understand that his enemies abroad — Putin, Bannon, Greenwald et al — won’t rest and won’t stop coming,” said Wilson. “They need to mow them down before a cleaner, smarter version of Le Pen emerges.” “Complacency is death for democracies. In America, too many believe that being rid of Trump ended the threat to our republic and its democratic system,” Wilson concluded. “They only have to win decisively in one big election and that’s the ballgame.”
Following the thread, Greenwald responded, questioning, “I wonder how long a tweet urging that foreign leaders ‘mow down’ AOC or Pete Buttigieg would last?” We’re independent and can’t be cancelled. The establishment media is increasingly dedicated to divisive cancel culture, corporate wokeism, and political correctness, all while covering up corruption from the corridors of power. The need for fact-based journalism and thoughtful analysis has never been greater. When you support The Post Millennial, you support freedom of the press at a […]
They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We just launched a GiveSendGo page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
