Samantha Bee Denied Press Credentials At Conservative Summit

Well, if there’s one media outlet that won’t be attending the Western Conservative Summit hosted by the Centennial Institute this week, it’s Samantha Bee’s Full Frontal crew. It’s not like they were there to cover anything; they were there to make conservatives look bad—again. Yes, they’re a comedy media team. Yes, they’re total garbage human beings. And yes, the Centennial Institute could deny them credentials. If I applied to go to the left wing Netroots Nation again, I probably would be denied as well. 

In 2016, Samantha Bee’s production team came to the Western Conservative Summit. They did not provide fair coverage,” said Jeff Hunt, Director of the Centennial Institute and Chairman of the Western Conservative Summit in a press release. “Instead, they bullied and harassed our attendees. Conservatives are tired of being mistreated by the liberal media. Shows like Full Frontal with Samantha Bee are not intent on reporting but bullying and shaming conservatives. Her request for media credentials to the Western Conservative Summit has been denied.”

And this could be a blessing in disguise. I mean Samantha Bee has stepped on a rake multiple times, as she gives the progressive left an erotic massage with her show. She’s mocked a kid battling brain cancer at the Conservative Political Action Committee, she touted disgraced former New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, who has been accused of beating women, of being a superhero for fighting the Trump administration, and she said that a kid who believes in God was “Jerry Falwell in blond, larval form.” That latter incident occurred at this summit (via The Atlantic):

During the [2016] campaign, Bee dispatched a correspondent to go shoot fish in a barrel at something called the Western Conservative Summit, which the reporter described as “an annual Denver gathering popular with hard-right Christian conservatives.” He interviewed an earnest young boy who talked about going to church on Sundays and Bible study on Wednesdays, and about his hope to start a group called Children for Trump. For this, the boy—who spoke with the unguarded openness of a child who has assumed goodwill on the part of an adult—was described as “Jerry Falwell in blond, larval form.”

And now we have her calling Ivanka Trump, First Daughter and senior adviser to the president a “feckless c**t” for not standing up to her father’s immigration agenda. Yeah, she apologized, but after all of these instances, does she really mean it? No. She hates Trump, his family, his supporters, and rural America in general. It was a huge in-kind contribution, one that should be replayed for conservatives who might think that there could be a scintilla of good in an American liberal, and that we can get along. There isn’t and we can’t. Sorry, why would I waste my time with you, Mr. or Mrs. Liberal who thinks it’s fine to throw the c-word around when the person you’re trashing is not one of you? Why? There is liberal media privilege. It’s been around for decades. Should we get into the gutter with them? I’m not opposed, but I would rather beat them at the ballot box.

The Western Conservative Summit begins on June 8.
