NeverTrump Website Red State Dies From Lack of Interest

Red State has announced they are closing up shop due to the fact that if people wanted to read NeverTrump propaganda they could just go to the DNC or Maxine Waters websites. Their opinions weren’t bought and paid for. Documents show that #NeverTrumpers were paid off to oppose trump in the primaries. Erick Erickson raked in $3 million in money funneled by the establishment Ricketts family and another 10 Gs from Paul Singer to oppose Trump in the primaries. Singer also gave big bucks to the #Nevertrump rag, the National Review.

From The Daily Caller documented that the Ricketts family funded Our Principles PAC to the tune of $3 million in February alone.  We should not be surprised when FEC filings show money from Our Principles PAC flowing to Resurgent Media, with the box “Oppose Trump” checked off as the Erickson media group’s purpose.

Principles PAC also bought over $400,000 for four year old books written by then #NeverTrumper Mark Levin. Others receiving PAC money was Glenn Beck, another #NeverTrumper. beck’s Blaze is also in deep financial trouble. Levin wisely moved away from the #NeverTrump movement once the nomination was won by Trump and the #NeverTrump money ran out.

Red State was a huge part of the #NeverTrump movement and Salem, who bought Red State from Erickson fired every writer on the payroll. There are rumors that some of the writers will be rehired but the #neverTrumpers will not be rehired.


CNN Money reported:

Salem Media, owner of the influential conservative outlet RedState, froze the site on Friday and dismissed many of its writers.

Bloggers were locked out of their accounts — some just temporarily, while the cuts were made, and others permanently.

Erick Erickson, the site’s longtime editor who left in 2015, tweeted about what he called the “mass firing” on Friday morning.

“Very sad to see, but not really surprising given Salem’s direction,” he wrote. “And, finally, after all these years, they’ve turned off my account.”

Multiple sources told CNNMoney that they believed conservative critics of President Trump were the writers targeted for removal.

“Insufficiently partisan” was the phrase one writer used in a RedState group chat.

As Trump continues to win, his enemies continue to lose.
