We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Did this group ever mow lawns, shovel snow, work a paper route, paint a fence, scoop ice cream, tutor a younger student, act as a life guard, work a cash register, detassle corn, dig potatoes, etc. between the ages of 8 and 15? Should I go on?
What this clip reveals is the power of the media to set the narrative-to call black white. The press is a lobbying arm of the most liberal of our people. They are actively promoting Marxist positions by shading coverage one way or another. I am now concerned about the arteries of public information being perverted more than any other issue.
The average American parrots what they have heard from the media rather than understanding the issues. We have lost the majority of the press, professorships, public teachers and pop culture to the Marxist among us. The "middle" in the medium of T.V. could accurately be called a liberal Democrat with anything to the right of that position portrayed as a form of evil.
Here is a question for you. When was the last time a conservative Christian was portrayed in a positive or at least neutral light on any T.V. show or movie? That is with 16% of the U.S. population self identifying as C.C. in the last census. Now-how many homosexuals have you seen portrayed on T.V. shows or movies in the last week in a positive light? Keep in mind that Gaylife.com publishes a stat of 4% of Americans as Gay/Lesbian or Bisexual.
We are in a re-education camp of a modern design. No need to force march people to a camp when you control virtually all they see and hear with the exceptions being very rare. What good is it to be correct if wrong is the currency of the realm?
I see it somewhat differently. The traditional journalists are not the most liberal, but mid-liberal. This allows them to maintain the myth that they are in the center, because they can see people to the left of themselves.
This also allows them to roll their eyes - a telling form of argument among themselves because it relies on social control rather than reason - when conservatives accuse them of serious bias. Those silly right-wingers! How can anyone take them seriously when they say things like that? Thus, they are not confronted with any need to examine themselves honestly.
I might be a little more charitably inclined towards these nincompoops if they also took on their bloated Democrat capitalist running dog icons, such as Nancy Pelosi and her annual $10,000 a day Christmas stay at a suite in a resort in Hawaii, or Al Gore and his power-gobbling megamasion or Obama and HIS $4 million Hawaii Christmas.
That is like watching a video of uneducated pirates announcing their intentions to storm the barricades of civilization and rob the citizens. Hopefully, besides being uneducated, they are also powerless. Funny, if the world saw the pirates down off of africa boarding the ships and stealing the product or negotiating the ransom, they would recognize them for the thieves and murderers they are. Why can't they see the same thing in these occupiers?
