A Tale Of Two Media

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair… Charles Dickens, A Tale of Two Cities

The discourse in America is being attacked by the liberal media because the people are attacking the plans of their chosen messiah. Obama has been spending like crazy, breaking campaign promises right and left and he has been pushing a Socialist agenda on the people. He and his Democratic minions as well as his Chicago thugs and SEIU goons are trying to stifle dissent by attacking the people who are expressing themselves. But what are we coming to? The signs that are displayed and the actions of the people are out of this world:

…protesters stalked his motorcade, assailed his limousine and stoned a car containing his advisers. Calling the President a terrorist, the demonstrators bullied passers-by, including gay softball players and a wheelchair-bound grandfather with multiple sclerosis.

One protester even brandished a sign that seemed to advocate the President’s assassination. The man held a large photo of the President that had been doctored to show a gun barrel pressed against his temple.

What kind of people would do this sort of thing? These are over the top antics by truly deranged people and the media are right to go after them because this is no way to express dissatisfaction. The media should not, however, say that these fringe elements represent an entire group of people.

Not to worry, the media did not even cover the event very much and none of the people were labeled as terrorists, whack jobs, nuts, or racists. This is because the paraphrased quote above is from a story describing how liberals reacted to President Bush when he attended a fundraiser in 2002.

The media did not cover this, the talking heads did not have any of them on TV discussing how dangerous they are and asking what kind of impression people should have and they were seen as people being patriotic by dissenting.

Now that Obama and his Democrats are catching hell the media are portraying people as nuts. Those who do have a Nazi symbol are pointed out by Nancy Pelosi (she did not point out the Nazi symbol at the Bush protest) and the media as representatives of an entire group of people and the group is stated to be all conservative. Democrats do not need Republican votes to pass anything so there must be more than just Republicans at these meetings.

This is how the media reacts to different parties. When Republicans are in power the protests are seen as dissent and the over the top stuff is ignored because the evil Republican deserves it. When a Democrat is in charge the media rally and start labeling people exercising their First Amendment rights as right wing nut jobs who are a bunch of racists that can’t stand a black man being in charge. This is what the media ignores while labeling you a nut job or dangerous:

Protesters slashed the tires of several state patrol cruisers and leapt onto an occupied police car, slamming the hood and blocking the windshield with placards. A female police officer was knocked to the street by advancing protesters, badly injuring her wrist.

The angry protest grew so violent that the Secret Service was forced to take the highly unusual step of using a backup route for Bush’s motorcade because the primary route had been compromised by protesters, one of whom pounded his fist on the president’s moving limousine.

Obama wants to stifle dissent and debate as evidenced by his statement that he wants those who caused the problem to be quiet and let him clean up the mess. There are plenty of people from both parties who are responsible for this mess so if he wants those who caused it to be quiet DC will sound like a library.

Pelosi and Hoyer called those who were up in arms un-American and Arlen Specter said that they do not represent most of America. As if a guy who can’t figure out what party he wants to be in knows what represents America.

Don’t let these elitists get you down. We have a formidable task in fighting the Socialists because we have to fight the elected as well as their media wing. The media will not report on their own mess but will hype up anything that will bring scorn to bear on the conservatives in this country.

Turn their programs off. Fight against government abuse. Vote every member of the House out of office next year. If you only vote for Democrats then vote for the primary challenger, same goes for Republicans. If there are no challengers in the primary then don’t vote for that particular candidate. If party is a secondary concern then vote for the other person. We can change the political landscape by voting them out of office.

We can also change what they do by voicing our opposition to their Socialist plans.

Now is the time for the next revolution. It needs to be peaceful (as long as the opposition keeps it that way) but effective.

UPDATE: Georgia Democrat David Scott’s office sign had a swastika painted on it. I don’t condone that kind of behavior (but rest assured the liberal media will blame it on a conservative extremist) but found what Scott said kind of interesting:

“We have got to make sure that the symbol of the swastika does not win, that the racial hatred that’s bubbling up does not win this debate,” Scott said in a telephone interview. “There’s so much hatred out there for President (Barack) Obama.” Yahoo News

I don’t remember Scott having this sentiment when the radical left was marching against Bush and proudly displaying that Nazi symbol.

    I signed a petition to Mikulski and received a form letter from her office which did not contain the truth about the health bill. I then emailed her and told her that she was not telling the truth, and that many of these democrats would no longer be in office after 2010. They do not know what the word “truth” means.

    Maybe if right-wingers would quit making up lies (birthism and deathism being only the latest), they wouldn’t find their words “attacked.”

    The capacity for wingnuts to perpetrate various acts of dishonesty and stupidity and then play the victim is sort of funny, but mostly it is pathetic and deserves nothing but loud and direct contempt.

      Man,I do not know who you think you are, but your side (the loony Liberal left) has made up so many lies about Bush in the past that you just need to sit down, shut up, and think about the past eight or so years. You all are STILL unhinged and insane ( I know- Redundant…), Perhaps when you can understand just what Hussein is doing to the country you will awaken- If you DO know, and you are easy with this, then you do not deserve to live here- you might as well live in France with the other cowards.

      • Big Dog says:

        Stanky, you should have a comedy show because what you wrote is pure comedy.

        People have a right to know if their leader meets the Constitutional requirement. Forgive people who won’t take a politician’s word.

        As Blake says, the lies from the left are tremendous. Each time a liberal’s lips move he is lying.

  3. Excellent points about all the dissent that GWB faced! We don’t hear a word about those in the lamestream media these days.

    Now is the time for the next revolution. It needs to be peaceful (as long as the opposition keeps it that way) but effective.

    I agree. If we don’t take a stand, America as we know her is lost!

    Wider and wider yawns the disconnect between the people and the so-called “public servants.” When the people have such a disconnect with their elitist government, upheaval is bound to come.

    I always wonder- if conservatives are in the minority, as the libbies always claim, how come Glenn Beck’s book is number one? Or Mark Levin, or Bill O’ Reilly, Sean Hannity, or Ann Coulter.
    I admit Coulter is kind of hot, but I certainly wouldn’t buy a book simply because of its cover- perhaps a libbie might, but I want to know what is inside the covers.
    Still, someone is buying them. I have not heard of ANY liberal who has had a number one bestseller unless its Hussein.
    That would be one left bestseller vs. what- at least five conservative bestsellers?
    If nothing else, it proves more conservatives know how to read.

      Hey, I just had a thought- according to The left, we are dressed better also. I am beginning to have a better self image. I still do not have a Brooks Brothers suit though- darn-
