PJ Media covered the recent musings of the Lincoln Project, an organization supposedly comprised of ‘Republicans’ who viciously opposed the reelection of former President Trump, instead electing to throw their support behind Joe Biden.
Recently, the Lincoln Project put out an ad attacking Trump and Fox News following media reports of animosity between the two, then discussing it in a press release.
“In a new ad, The Lincoln Project tells Donald Trump that Fox News is ignoring him and hoping he will just disappear as they raise Ron DeSantis’s profile,” reads the press release. “Despite all the money he’s made Murdoch, Hannity, and Carlson, they laugh at him and think he’s terrible. It’s time for Donald Trump to get back on Twitter and reclaim his audience before it’s too late.”
.@FoxNews doesn't want to air our ad because they're uncomfortable with the truth. Fox doesn't want people to know what they really think about Trump and his sycophants. Let's expose Fox News for what they really are: frauds.pic.twitter.com/PnxTOR8ruu

According to PJ Media, the Lincoln Project said Fox News is a bunch of “snowflakes” who are “too afraid to let their audience see the truth” due to their decision to not broadcast the attack ad.
As the outlet noted, the Lincoln Project, which characterizes itself as “a leading pro-democracy organization in the United States — dedicated to the preservation, protection, and defense of democracy,” regularly attacks conservatism despite ostensibly claiming to represent it.
A prime example of this was seen in 2021 when the group staged a political stunt in which they sent goons to pose as pretend “white supremacists” who supposedly supported then-Virginia GOP gubernatorial candidate Glenn Youngkin.
After it was revealed his organization was responsible for the display, co-founder Stuart Stevens refused to apologize upon being asked by CNN’s Chris Cuomo if he would do so.
“Listen,” began Stevens. “Every day I hear people pleading with the Lincoln Project to help show Democrats how to win, how to play hardball. You know, this is an example.”
Another co-founder of the group, John Weaver, exited in disgrace after he admitted to sending extremely “inappropriate” messages to dozens of young men. Allegations against Weaver included that he would offer men job opportunities while urging copulation, with one saying he engaged in intercourse only to not receive work. Weaver allegedly referred to numerous men as “my boy,” complimenting the hair of some in addition to asking questions about their genitals.
Weaver has since come out as gay, adding that he loves both his wife and kids. He has served as a political strategist for numerous establishment Republican candidates, including George H.W. Bush, John McCain, and John Kasich.
