Charlie Kirk: Tired of ‘Being Lectured By Activist Press’ Over ‘Domestic Violent Extremists’

“Do you think you would have heard about the story of a 41-year-old man who got in a car and hunted down an 18-year-old, if that 18-year-old was a black Democrat?”

“Domestic violent extremist” is a new political buzzword, and conservative radio host and podcaster Charlie Kirk is tired of the phrase already, pointing out, in his view, it is only used to describe conservatives.

“Every time you turn on the television they’re talking about domestic violent extremists. We watch MSNBC so you don’t have to,” Kirk said. “So when they talk about domestic violent extremists, who exactly are they talking about? Well, they’re trying to create a caricature. They’re trying to create an idea that half the country is ready to start and foment a civil war. When you look at the news — especially in the last couple of days — you have to ask the question who exactly is committing the acts of domestic violent extremism? Who’s the one actually doing domestic violent extremism?”

Kirk then continued by pointing out the lack of media coverage surrounding the murder of a North Dakota teenager.

“Did you hear about the incident of somebody who hunted down a teenager based on their political views? Do you think you would have heard about the story of a 41-year-old man who got in a car and hunted down an 18-year-old, if that 18-year-old was a black Democrat? You think you would have heard about that story? Would you be getting push notifications from Apple News? Front page of CNN.com? Do you think that it would be something that would probably get denunciations from every major political leader?”

The Charlie Kirk Show host then lamented the use of the phrase and how it will be used to continue government overreach.

“We are being lectured to, non-stop, by the people in the activist press, about domestic violent extremism. They’re talking about it on cable television, they’re talking about it in congressional hearings, they’re talking about it as justification to expand and strengthen the Patriot Act, and this entire national security leviathan.”

Sean Hannity: ‘I Don’t Want to Be a Hall Monitor’ During DeSantis/Newsom Debate

Fox News host Sean Hannity is set to moderate a debate between Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) and Gov. Gavin Newsom (D-CA) Thursday, and he says he won’t be part of the story Friday morning.

During The Sean Hannity Show Tuesday, the longtime syndicated radio host said he has vowed to not overstep his duties as a moderator, despite what Newsom has told others.

“I’ve been working very hard on preparing for this debate and just laying out the topics and letting them go at it,” Hannity said. “I’m not going to be debating — Gavin has been saying ‘Two on one’, but nope. I’m just bringing up the topics.

“I’m not going to be debating. I will bring up the topic, try and make the question short, and let them get into it. If it warrants another follow-up, it warrants another follow-up…and the format, I think, is fair,” Hannity continued. “I told both sides I’m going to allow some breathing room. I don’t want to be a hall monitor. I really don’t. I don’t feel like Chris Wallace here.”

Fox News will present DeSantis vs. Newsom: The Great Red vs. Blue State Debate from 9-10:30 PM ET on Thursday. The debate will also be simulcast on FOX News Radio. After the debate, Hannity will provide a live reaction with a panel of guests from 10:30 to 11:00 PM/ET.

Earlier this week, X owner Elon Musk shared a meme that questioned whether or not “PizzaGate” — the widely debunked conspiracy theory that claimed prominent political figures were operating a child sex operation out of the basement of a Washington D.C. pizza parlor — was real. In response, Keith Olbermann has announced his plans to depart the platform, which drew the ire of many conservative pundits.

In a post to X, Olbermann directly attributed his departure from the platform to the meme shared by Musk.

“After Musk’s endorsement of the QAnon Pizzagate conspiracy theory, I won’t be posting here any more,” Olbermann wrote. “There are a couple of prescheduled promos for the Podcast, the last runs ~10PM I’m on the other socials under my name or some variation of Countdown With KO/Keith Olbermann.”

He went on to call Musk “an antisemite and a moron who will eat the latest shit one of his sycophants hands him”. He continued by noting that he no longer views the platform as “an effective means of promotion”, sharing that in a recent episode of his Countdown with Keith Olbermann podcast that featured 125,000 views or downloads, only 22 total came from X.

After the declaration, several conservative media members and content creators mocked Olbermann for his stance.
