Before that purge, RedState there was a healthy mix of stories that were critical of Trump and supported him. Then, despite being trapped by some Trump critics, the tenor turned to the scene. Trump's left-wing critics wrote fewer entries and hostility toward those who were still doing it was justified.
We have personally learned that writers who dare to test President Trump or the MGA mentality are deliberately suppressed privately and even publicly criticized. In one case, one of us (Kimberley) wrote a piece that was critical of Trump's attempts to reject bomb threats as a liberal fraud. It has been posted, but all references to it on Twitter or Facebook have been deleted and done so constantly without explanation. Only after she spoke, she will learn not to split into social media, and Salem's management has taken steps to stop talking about the incident with colleagues.
Although we continued with the hope that the atmosphere could change, that approach is unsustainable.
