Social media witch-hunts are no different to the old kind – just bigger. Although the west’s appetite for witch-hunting has long been sated, the urge to persecute has not, which explains why the idea remains so useful.

Social media witch-hunts are no different to the old kind – just bigger

Politicians and celebrities and journalists use the term “witch-hunt” all the time. In March this year the blogger Craig Charles Haley described “social media witch-hunts” as “witch-hunts on steroids”. Accusations go viral, globally, within hours, and “instead of having dozens of angry voices baying for your blood”, writes Haley, “you have tens of thousands”. Typically the accusers are cowardly, ignorant, offensive and openly misogynistic. When the historian Mary Beard appeared on BBC’s Question Time, she received torrents of abuse from internet trolls, less about what she had said than about how she looks. In the victimisation of public figures like Beard, we instantly recognise the witch-hunting paradigm: a mob pointing at an older woman, exposed in public and outspoken.

Yet much of what we know, from folklore and fiction, is wrong. A political history of the term “witch hunt” The term “witch hunt” has renewed cultural and political resonance, largely because it’s one of President Trump’s preferred strategies for deflecting criticism and mobilizing his base.

A political history of the term “witch hunt”

Since assuming office, Trump has tweeted some variant of the phrase “WITCH HUNT!” More than 120 times in response to the Mueller investigation and critics including the “Fake News,” congressional Democrats, Hillary Clinton, various intelligence agencies, former President Obama, and “leakers” within the administration itself. These tweets reflect the modern usage of the term — as a metaphor that delegitimizes an investigation by calling out the partisan biases and ideological motives underlying accusations of wrongdoing. But the use of the term “witch hunt” is more than just partisan maneuvering. It contains a gender dynamic that’s often overlooked, particularly when a man in a position of power identifies himself as the target of a witch hunt.

Le raisonnement par syllogisme

Ce raisonnement consiste en deux propositions dont on déduit une troisième ; il est ordinairement fondé sur un des deux principes suivants, où il n’y a pas d’erreur possible : Ce qui convient à l’idée d’une généralité, convient à chacun des individus qui composent cette généralité.Ce qui ne convient pas à l’idée d’une généralité, ne convient à aucun des individus.

Bewitched tweaked ’60s gender roles and became one of the first feminist sitcoms. For most of the history of television, the barrier to syndication—and to profitability—has been 100 episodes.

The shows that have made it to that mark are an unusual group. Many were big hits. Some found small cult audiences. Still others just hung on as best they could and never posted numbers quite low enough to be canceled. In 100 Episodes, we examine the shows that made it to that number, considering both how they advanced and reflected the medium and what contributed to their popularity.

The ’60s were unquestionably the top decade for high-concept sitcoms. Bewitched S1 E26 Introduction (Samantha Wants to Drive) BEWITCHED Be It Ever So Mortgaged S01 EP02.
