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.
She's rather wrong about the situation in Europe and the media. In fact things are much worse than she portrays.
Had the media reported in Europe (and possibly the US as well) that they'd been manipulated or for other reasons had incorrectly reported Israel as being genocidal child killing mass murderers, the media would NOT have gained credibility, people would have refused to believe that the media were now telling the truth and that Hamas/PLO is the real enemy here, that Israel is the victim.
This is simply because people have been force fed Islamic and anti-Semitic propaganda for so long, for many of them it's all they've ever heard, both from the media and from their school teachers in history, social sciences, religion, and geography classes.
Very few would have the mental stamina and the smarts both to realise that they've been fed propaganda as fact all their lives in this (or indeed in anything), and would just claim that the people now coming forward claiming they'd been duping their audiences for all that time are in fact Zionist conspirators paid by "the Jews" to spread lies.
So the media go on with their old mantra, not because they don't know better but because it's the only way to save their skins (and because it fits the political world view of the reporters quite nicely, most of which are so far to the left that Lenin'd be embarrassed for not being a "proper Marxist" if in their presence).
If you think NBC and ABC in America are biased and leftist, you (to paraphrase Ronald Reagan) ain't seen nothing yet.
I suspect that the record will show that the European jews, like their American counterparts, voted overwhelming for leftist socialist authoritarian rulers for the last 150 years. For the civilized safety that they are so well known for.
