At midnight tonight, one of the most influential Conservative Blogs in America will make a significant transition. Hot Air, a blog created by Conservative writer and political pundit, Michelle Malkin will depart the WordPress platform and migrate over to Facebook.
Every since Michelle Malkin sold Hot Air back in 2010, what had once been a Conservative blog had been drifting to the left. With the transition to the Facebook platform that transition will now be complete. Hot Air will be Conservative by past reputation and in name only.
Its last EPIC thread is now well under way, as the individuals who commented in the threads at Hot Air over the last 10 years received the news and begin the painful process of saying their goodbyes.
Sadly, this day has been inevitable since 2010 when Hot Air was purchased by Salem Communications. For those unaware, Salem Communications is a Marxist Media Corporation pretending to be a Conservative Christian Media Corporation. Marxist dressed up in Christian clothing, Marxism preached as though it were Christianity.
For some years now, Hot Air has been doing the same thing, pretending to be a Conservative Blog, but in fact pushing a ever less subtle Socialist agenda. Open Borders, check, Reasonable Fire Arms Regulation, check, Same Sex Marriage, check…
The list of Marxist/Socialist agenda items that Hot Air either endorsed or tacitly endorsed just kept growing…
This is not the first time that a well known and highly respected blog has committed seppuku. Little Green Footballs, owned by 1970/1980s Jazz guitarist (of some note) Charles Johnston committed a similar act of seppuku. Hot Air’s Ed Morrissey found a less honest and less dramatic way of telling his customer base to go fuck themselves, but in the end, it amounts to the same thing.
The Social Justice Warriors own Facebook. Hot Air’s days of Conservative commentors voicing their Conservative opinions is over.
