Mother Jones’ Clara Jeffery smears actor Adam Baldwin; Baldwin fights back; Updated

Reading is hard. Especially when you’re a liberal who’s hell-bent on smearing an articulate, unapologetic conservative. When Clara Jeffery saw this headline:

Screen Shot 2013-03-11 at 2.57.45 PM

She tweeted out to her followers that Adam Baldwin is a tax delinquent. Never mind that Adam and Stephen are not, in fact, the same person, much less related. She had garbage to spew and, darn it, she wasn’t about to let facts get in the way! Or let them stop her from calling him a “psuedo-celebrity [sic] sexist gun troll”:

Really, Clara?

No dice. She eventually deleted her tweet, but she didn’t apologize for her lies — or her idiocy. In fact, she doubled down on the sliminess:

Pathetic. Then again, what else could you expect from a lefty journo-tool like Jeffery?

No kidding. Baldwin rightfully gave Jeffery the business:

What a nasty piece of work.

***

Update:

Ace points out Jeffery’s — and the Left’s — stunning hypocrisy when it comes to journalistic integrity:

Evidently, intellectual honesty just isn’t all that important to Jeffery.

***

Update:

Jeffery has tweeted another faux-pology:

She feels she’s earned the right to be outraged because of this:

Thing is, Baldwin never called her that.

A bit of background on that meme here.

Oh well. Jeffery’s got no time for the pesky truth.

Leftist tools like Jeffery live for it.

    Wow. I’ve gotta wonder about what sort of parents she had, and what she may be doing to that beautiful little boy in the picture with her, the poor thing.

      She’s doing with the child what liberals do. Hiding behind him.

      She had parents that named her “Clara”… No wonder she goes through life as a nasty hag.

    Give her hell Adam, if I was him I would file charges just to prove a point.

    “My apologies to Stephen Baldwin, who plead guilty to tax evasion http://nyack.patch.com/articles/stephen-baldwin …, is not troll @adamsbalwin.”

    ________________

    Shouldn’t that be pled or pleaded? Guess that’s why she’s a “co-editor” not a proofreader.

      And “psuedo” and “adamsbalwin”

      I wonder how much of whose money got pissed away on her ‘education’.

      I think it is “plead”, although I hate to say it. Being a co-editor at Mother Jones is about as prestigious as being President of the Lollipop Guild though.

      • Rebekah Kloeppel

        Technically, it’s “pleaded”, but the colloquial “pled” has gained greater acceptability over the past few decades. Although, that a college dropout should know better than an editor of a national publication should be cause for concern…

      • Judy B

        Lollipop Guild does in fact have some merit, the same cannot be said for Mother Jones.

  • Infinite_Indeterminism

    I’m not quite sure what’s the biggest problem here, the arrogance or the conceit…

    On second thought, I think I’ll go for the total lack of insight into the possibility that other people might actually remember this, and use it for a data point in their evaluation of her.

  • Billie Slash

    Does anybody actually read Mother Jones?? The relevancy of this rag is about the same as the electric car.

    I can’t really blame her for anything other than vindictiveness and laziness, I get the Baldwins confused all the time, besides Alec, he’s the ultra-libterd on 30 Rock and the obnoxious Capital One commercials that are always on TV.

    • mdtljt

      Stephen’s the Blonde Baldwin…Adam isn’t a Baldwin Brother…well, not one of those brothers. Also Stephen is the lone conservative…or he was a while back at least, so this sorry excuse actually apologized to an avowed enemy…bless her silly heart…

      My coworker, who is of Somali descent, has the married surname of Moore. Never once have I thought she was related to Michael or Julianne 😉 Simply having the same last name and vocation does not necessarily mean they are related. As a self avowed editor, it is pretty frightening that she failed to do basic research before spewing libel.

  • vino veritas

    Sue Mr. Baldwin. Sue the god damned tie dyed, eco-friendly, hemp pants off her unwashed, unshaven, lying ass! It’s way past time for the regular morally conscious sane citizens in this country take the gloves off and start giving these narcissistic lunatic liberals the much needed skull cracking they deserve. A good public financial flogging should send a message to smear merchant/propagandists like her employer that the free ride is over and their complicit pals in the mass media will not be able to help or save them when they violate the civil rights of their critics and the law, in general. Conservatives need to be as aggressive as possible in answering the lies of these people and going after them where it will hurt.
    BTW, I enjoyed your work on a number of shows (particularly The X-Files and Angel).
    Keep on making those far left hollywood freaks sweat like nervous pigs whenever they see you coming.

  • Jim

    Does she even understand what a “troll” is? Trolls say inflammatory things they don’t really mean, purely to anger others. Baldwin on the other hand, expresses his beliefs sincerely, and Clara can’t handle it.

  • RichardBlaine

    Adam and Steve… has to be a joke in there somewhere…

    And then she called Steven Adam’s brother when anyone who is a half-interested in pop-culture knows The Baldwin Brothers and Col. John Casey himself are in no way, shape, or form related. Lying, then going for snark, and sounding like an absolute dumb-ass. That’s modern liberal discourse for you.

    The liberal left just don’t understand logic, reason or meme’s, evidently. Since they do know how to attack, disagreeing with them is attacking. Be careful @ClaraJeffery, your ignorance is showing.

    I don’t seem to remember people like Jeffery saying being called a c**t was a bad thing when Democrats were wearing “SARAH PALIN IS A C**T” t-shirts. Anyone else remember her speaking up?

    Great responses Adam, though she’s not worth the energy to lambast honestly.

  • Axelgreaser

    (Clearing throat) Uh, might I suggest that the rag MOTHER JONES consider dropping the ‘Jones’ for another more colorful surname which begins with an ‘F’ and ends in an ‘r.’ A word one might use in reference to any number of insane liberals now choking our existence with their short sightedness, shortcomings and shortness in general. A word which is rooted in an old British legal acronym. Can’t guess? Clue: There are a large quantity of them serving in our government and a big one or two, or three or four, at the very top, if that clears things up at all. A real bunch of Mothers.

  • QBallBrazil

    Look for next Mother Jones article to report (sources from “Hollywood” insiders) that Mr.Baldwin accidentally shot his kid brother when he was younger and hustled kids in highschool for protection money. Oh, and beat up Matt Dillion.

    Why is anyone shocked? It’s Mother Jones, the black gossip rag. They always twist facts, lie and accuse any opposition of being racist.

    @Clara Jeffery – NEVER mess with Jayne Cobb. And by all means please educate yourself, just a wee bit, on the fact that Adam isn’t related to those Baldwin brothers. #ClaraJefferyBigFrigginIdiot

  • Robin Nelson-Herlihy

    Well, I like Adam Baldwin for sticking up for himself and calling out liberal lies. What a bunch of crap to name call someone for their beliefs. I like how Adam tweeted”Hi @ClaraJeffery: Please apologize for and retract your libel.” Interesting how Jeffery calls Mr. Baldwin a troll. When it seems a troll is one who will frequent sites such as Twitter and completely smear and degrade one without having facts to back them. This is where Mr. Baldwin has the complete upper hand here. Yee-ha, intelligence prevails!

  • Robin Nelson-Herlihy

    Oh yeah, I hope Mr. Baldwin frequents Twitchy so he can see there are even more people out there that supports his views. Sorry, I just don’t do the Twitter thing.

  • Ken Alan Draper

    Anyone surprised by this? after all Micheal moore used to be an editor of Mother Jones. and we all know that moore is completely full of fecal material.

  • Kenneth James Abbott

    Well, in their defense, if Mother Jones issued an apology every time they slandered someone, they’d never have time for anything else.

  • Diane Stephan

    She’s the type that probably plugs her fingers in her ears and yells la la la when someone tries to present the facts.

  • RightThinking1

    rino,

    I notice the Left grant themselves a lot of latitude when they overstep the bounds of legitimate/non-legitimate behavior (we needn’t bother to discuss civil/non-civil behavior). I’m going to take a leap here and guess that you believe that Bradley Manning did a ‘good’ thing.

    You still have nothing germane to offer, do you? One would have thought that your brief sabbatical from trolling would have been spent sharpening your rhetorical skills, yet that appears to not be the case.

    Yeah, after trying to hold down a conversation with lib trolls like you for more than a few minutes I often do. Usually its Tylenol Extra Strength followed by some Tums. Need to head the store tomorrow. Isn’t there a bridge somewhere you should be troll dancing under?

    Glad to see you missed me on my “sabbatical”. Hugs and kisses back!!! And yes I’m glad to be back on mm2

  • wwbdinct

    It’s even better to see that your posts are still getting deleted! But what would you expect when you’re so deranged and mentally ill that you would prefer a woman get raped rather than have a gun to defend herself.

    “sabbatical” . . . read “basement interweb privileges restored by mummy & daddy after daddy’s special friend got him, ahem, returned from the graybar motel!”
