overtons window said: "His syncophants love him though." This is all that is left. What Salem knows about talk radio, which is all Trump all the time, does not apply to blogs and specifically Redstate. https://www.thedailybeast.com/for-talk-radio-president-trump-is-the-gift-that-keeps-on-giving It was always about the comments and thus the commentators, the writers were there to facilitate the commentators. Once they rid themselves of writers to facilitate comments, there was nothing left other than commentators that agreed with each other. As it stands Redstate has approx 10 commentators that agree with each other and will regularly comment on a post.
Hot Air is becoming like that as well. Same commenters and if you dare go against Trump, beware...

I've never been called so many insulting things by a mod before, anywhere. I signed up because of the horrid streams of words Seton writes over there. He doesn't seem to understand patent's, the internet, or the major tech companies. I made a habit of posting corrections when they got the facts wrong, and that drove Neil nuts. He viewed his posts (and Seton's) as beyond criticism, and never would discuss facts, only insult those that disagree or provide counter evidence.
Did you try to go against Trump with streiff? I do not find him amenable to any criticism.
The intolerant thought control police masquerading as moderators, killed the site.
The thing about the posters at RedState is that they thrive on contention. They aren't happy just posting agreements with each other; they revel in lashing out at those who don't bow to Trump. That's why their postings are now minimal and ho-hum, and that's also why many of them now comment here - where they can again show their contentious, disagreeable side to those of us who don't toe the line. They just gotta whine, gripe, blame and complain. Cases in point: ColonelRace and cynicalnerd - keep grumbling ContentiousGuys, we kind of enjoy your desperation, but know you're not making an ounce of headway here. If your "man" was actually above reproach, you wouldn't feel the need to constantly run interference for him, now would you?
