You still don't get it, do you?
I thought NoahJ did a decent job, but I'll try to speak more slowly. Let' break it down shall we:
1. Steve Jobs is widely considered to be politically liberal (while I'll contend that on some issues he probably is and others he's probably not, let's concede this as the widely accepted view).
2. Steve jobs said some things (e.g., implied government obstruction was causing problems getting cell towers put in and that the NYT was making shit up) that are commonly assumed to be heard coming only from right-wing extremists.
3. [snark]Therefore Steve Jobs has not become a right-wing extremist.[/snark]
I believe that trumptman (perhaps he'll clarify) was being snarky/sarcastic/smart-assy. He was saying, I think
, here's someone who is obviously (or at least widely thought to be) politically liberal, and even he's
noting government obstruction of NYT bullshit.
He wasn't saying that Jobs is
conservative or a right-wing extremist, he was saying that even a liberal sees some things that are plain as day and calls a spade a spade (e.g. government obstruction and NYT bullshit).
I hope he'll clarify, but that's how I took the comment.
