As Twitchy reported, #NeverTrumper David French seems to see two Republican Parties: there are the ones like Gov. Ron DeSantis cozying up to MAGA, and there are the moderate alternatives, like ex-Vice President Mike Pence, who stuck up for the FBI Wednesday. The MAGA wing of the party isn’t just dangerous; according to ex-CIA Director Gen. Michael Hayden, it’s the most dangerous political force out there by a wide margin:
I agree. And I was the CIA Director https://t.co/LRAHDDyy4n

You think it’s a problem that the former CIA director thinks half of Americans are literally worse than the jihadi terrorists he routinely killed?

Nonsense, @davereaboi! Republicans make up 28% of voters, not half of Americans. As @CIA Director, @GenMhayden didn’t routinely kill anyone. And you maka helluva leap to suggest the General wants to kill Republicans. Calling today’s GOP very dangerous, sure. https://t.co/MJlp3mJQPl

Here’s Larry—Mike Hayden’s coffee boy at CIA—who wants to quibble about only 28% of Americans being worse than Al Qaeda, not 50%.

Killed? Maybe not. But imprisoned? We can see that. Look at how much effort the government has put into tracking down every grandmother who took a selfie inside the Capitol on January 6.
Back in January, Randi Weingarten shared how excited she was that her union was partnering with something called NewsGuard to help students identify “misinformation.”
I'm really excited about this partnership with Newsguard. Students across the country will have access to this tool to help them identify misinformation. https://t.co/pwsfREiIyN

Guess who sits on the board of NewsGuard … Gen. Michael Hayden. Tristan Justice reports for The Federalist:
Hayden, who just more than a decade ago was authorizing drone strikes to gun down violent extremists, is currently on the advisory board of a left-wing misinformation group that brands itself as a disinformation watchdog.
NewsGuard is a popular pro-censorship browser extension that’s being deployed in schools to indoctrinate students on acceptable news sources.
Hayden was also among the more than 50 former intelligence officials who signed a joint letter published with Politico to dismiss the Hunter Biden laptop as Russian disinformation in October 2020 despite early confirmation of the computer’s legitimacy. Even after Politico conceded the laptop’s authenticity 11 months later, Hayden doubled down on the false claim that its contents are instruments of a Russian disinformation campaign.
Thank goodness we were shielded from that Russian disinformation before the 2020 election.

He’s also a brain-damaged buffoon whose incompetence helped lead to 9/11 and the Iraq WMD fiasco. https://t.co/w0vjxLG05x

This POS should be in prison.

This snake should never have been anywhere near a public office. He's a left wing zealot hater of President Trump. Must have plenty of skeletons in his closet that he's afraid the next Trump administration will expose.

Tell me how objective he can be.
— ghopper0110 (@ghopper0110) August 18, 2022
I’m just glad he’s still ok! With all those murderous, GOP radicals on the loose, it’s just amazing he hasn’t been murdered by vengeful Republicans.

These people always manage to find news gigs no matter how badly they failed in their former careers.
