Vice reporter Tess Owens, who callously mocked the plight of the Jan. 6 prisoners who have been held in solitary confinement and denied due process, has protected her tweets after being trolled by conservative comedian Alex Stein at CPAC in a schadenfreude super-spreader video that promptly went viral.
Taking his cues from liberal shock jocks like Hideous Howard Stern and Don Imus, conservative Alex Stein has built a career on acting out and ruthlessly mocking public figures for the things they do.
Remember, this is the guy who had the audacity to comment on Rep. Mouth-Breather Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s rear end, setting back the women’s lib and Latinx relations by at least fifty years.
But when the targets of your abrasive brand of humor are progressives, the rules are different. If Hideous Howard Stern goes after Melania Trump, it’s sharp-witted satire. If, however, Alex Stein goes after, say, a Vice reporter or (gasp!) Mouth-Breather Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, it’s a clear example of how misogynistic Republican bullies are and Dems run for their safe spaces.
So, while Stein may be considered an obnoxious, juvenile anti-comic by some, many conservatives couldn’t help but chuckle when he went after the mask-wearing Owens at CPAC on Saturday — especially after she dismissed as “political theater” a CPAC booth that, in dramatic fashion, called attention to those still being detained for their alleged involvement in the events of January 6, 2021.
As BizPac Review reported, a makeshift cell was erected in the CPAC convention hall at the Hilton Anatole in Dallas, TX. Inside, a barefoot man, later identified as #WalkAway founder Brandon Straka, clad in an orange jumpsuit and a Make America Great Again hat, sat weeping as audio testimonies played. Never once did Straka, who was arrested by an FBI SWAT team in the wake of Jan. 6, break character according to witnesses of the extraordinary display. Straka later pleaded guilty to being in a restricted area on the Capitol grounds that fateful day.
