Jake Tapper Joins the 'Enemies List' Brigade, Thoroughly Beclowns Self Along the Way

My colleague Nick Arama reported Friday on how prominent movers and shakers in the Democratic party, from members of Congress to liberal pundits to former staffers of failed Democratic presidential campaigns, were ramping up calls for an “Enemies List” of sorts in an effort to ensure that Trump administration officials and Trump supporters were ostracized by society for having the audacity to disagree with the Democratic agenda.

“Squad” leader Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) was one who floated the idea on her Twitter feed, as was Washington Post “Never Trumper” Jennifer Rubin. Two former
Pete Buttigieg campaign staffers even took it to the next level by actually creating a website where they vowed to “make sure anyone who took a paycheck to help Trump undermine America is held responsible for what they did.” Their now-deleted list includes 57 judges.

Not surprisingly, CNN’s Jake Tapper – who completely ripped off the “objective journalist” mask after Election Day – indicated in a couple of predictably condescending tweets today that he was on board with such efforts:

How’s that for “unity” and “healing”?

The irony of a supposedly “respectable journalist” like Tapper throwing questions of “character” in the mix considering his “Enemies List” endorsement included veiled threats and cheap shots was not lost on people:

I believe the term “mobster” is the appropriate term to be used here, especially when you consider that not only is Tapper flashing the greenlight to shame and shun conservatives over legitimate political disagreements, but he also took the “bend the knee” approach with the New York Post over Twitter locking them out of their account over the explosive Hunter Biden laptop story.

Sadly, Jake Tapper is proving the old adage true about how you can take a person out of their element, but you can’t take the element out of the person. In this case, you can take Tapper out of being a writer for the radically left-wing Salon magazine and out of being a former spokesman for a former Democratic Congresswoman, but you can’t take the radical leftist out of Jake Tapper.
