As a public service announcement I caution all before reading this critique of the Huffington Post article referenced below to ensure that you are sitting down and that there are no sharp objects around before proceeding.
A stunning revelation has just been discovered that may very well shock you! A crack writer at HuffPo, Lee Stranahan, in reference to the multiple death threats against Wisconsin Republicans not being reported in the media, states;
“Ignoring the story of these threats is deeply, fundamentally wrong. It’s bad, biased journalism that will lead to no possible good outcome and progressives should be leading the charge against it.”
So, just to be sure we have it straight, the progressives that are responsible for the criminal bias in today’s media should be leading the charge against it? Really?
Although, in all fairness, I suppose it’s encouraging to see at least one zealot from the left crawl out from under his rock and see the truth. I say that because it’s almost comical that Mr. Stranahan had to do a Google search to discover that… brace yourself… the media in this country just may be dishonest and…steady now… that conservatives are actually right when accusing the media of being biased in favor of the left;
“Just before writing this article, I did a Google search and it’s stunning to find out that the right wing media really isn’t exaggerating — proven death threats against politicians are being ignored by the supposedly honest media.”
I suppose we should thank Andrew Breitbart for engaging this fellow in good old fashioned capitalism (Breitbart hired him to work on the Pigford Settlement story), which apparently has stimulated his sense of discovery. Could this be the secret to conquering the left?
The writer goes on to ask the question, “Is this really what liberalism has come to in 2011?”
In asking this question, he unknowingly stumbles upon another great discovery; that there are substantive differences between traditional liberals and far left progressives. It’s the latter that wish to destroy America as it exists today. Something today’s liberals need to understand and then make the choice as to which side of that goal they wish to stand.
As we continue the important national debate now taking place in the streets of America, a debate that ultimately boils down to government’s role in our society and man’s ability to govern himself or not, I must say it’s very discouraging to realize just how out of touch with reality many on the left are in this country.
For those who have always claimed to have cornered the market when it comes to intelligent, independent thought, it seems that there yet more discoveries to be made…
