(RightWing.org) – In this day and age, Liberal mainstream media news sites are known to go on the attack and gloss over what they believe are irrelevant issues. They did so with Hunter Biden’s laptop story during the final weeks of the 2020 presidential election, with smart people trying to get ahead of any potential problems. Whatever else people may have to say about him, no one can deny that Vivek Ramaswamy is quite intelligent and articulate, but now he’s being targeted for having some fairly inconsequential information about him removed from his Wikipedia page.
It’s All Relative
The Leftist site Mediaite has led a charge against Ramaswamy because he had someone edit information about him to remove an association with one of the most hated names by many Conservatives, George Soros. Naturally, anyone looking to become the 2024 Republican candidate to take down President Joe Biden would not want to give the Liberals anything they could use to connect the two men. But is that what really happened here?
In 2011, Ramaswamy was awarded a grant from the Paul & Daisy Soros Fellowships for New Americans Foundation to help “support work towards a JD [Juris Doctor] in law at Yale University.” The husband and wife are both Hungarian immigrants who came to America after World War II when their homeland was taken over by the Soviet Union, as did Paul’s younger brother George.
According to the foundation’s website, the program “is a $90,000 merit-based fellowship exclusively for immigrants and children of immigrants who are pursuing graduate degrees in the United States,” of which 30 are granted yearly. The hit piece also mentions the removal of comments about his position with the state of Ohio’s pandemic response team because Governor Mike DeWine was criticized by the Republicans for enforcing stricter lockdown orders than many other Red states.
Another smear campaign was written for The National Review, portraying itself as a Libertarian/Conservative news source by British-born author Charles C.W. Cooke, who coined the phrase Conservatarian to describe himself. Perhaps it’s unsurprising that both articles attack Ramaswamy since the author of the Mediaite piece, Isaac Schorr, just happens to be “a media and enterprise reporter for National Review.”
Cooke’s attack recounts the first time he came across Ramaswamy, who was speaking at an event in 2021, where he said the presidential hopeful “simpered and smirked” and that he “manages to say everything and nothing all at once.” In some ways, it seems that Cooke and Schorr could be the proverbial wolves in sheep’s clothing when it comes to their “conservative” credentials. The former’s Instagram page self-describes him as a “classic liberal” while the latter is listed as a writer on the Mediaite About page. Perhaps they are the ones who need to scrub their backgrounds.
