Conservative bloggers, activists and political pundits frequently bemoan the blatant bias that we see every day in the media. Indeed, it has become so glaringly obvious that only the most dense person would not recognize it. The left has turned the field of journalism into a mockery. No standards, no truth, no-holds-barred. All’s fair in their tacit agreement to use their broadcasting power to defeat anyone who stands in the way of implementing the left’s agenda for America.
The most recent example came on the heels of Senator Marco Rubio’s State of the Union speech when he had the audacity to need a drink of water. How dare he commit such a faux pas. The left-wing propaganda machine played it and replayed it in its predictable attempts to make Rubio look like an incompetent bumbler.
What to do about it? Even the soft-spoken Dr. Benjamin Carson mentioned it in follow-up interviews he conducted after his much-watched speech at the National Prayer Breakfast. In response to his critics who tried to shame him for daring to give a speech that challenged President Obama’s vision for the country at a prayer breakfast, he reminded everyone that Obama is not a monarch and that our government is here to serve us not the other way around.
Dr. Carson’s answer to what to do about the political correctness police is to speak up. The left’s tactics are designed to silence us and only allow their side to be heard (because they’re so tolerant and all). And we must resist that pressure and speak out no matter where we are or who is present.
Good advice. I would like to see the pretense dropped and less cooperation with left-wing journalists altogether. They need to be seen for what they are — our enemies. Why does our side continue to walk into their camp knowing every question and comment will be laced with propaganda and innuendo designed to destroy, belittle and marginalize us? At some point, we must recognize that this is stupid on our part.
Well, that’s enough for now. I’ll leave you with some good music by Jon Gibson to enjoy on this President’s Day Monday or, more accurately, Washington’s Birthday. (See the link for Mike DeVine’s history of how the name has been changed unofficially.)
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES Marco Rubio’s concession speech tonight did not get full air time on CNN, but they showed the most important part. Listen to Senator Rubio humbly explain his loss: “I’m disappointed with tonight. I want you to understand, I want you to understand something. Our disappointment tonight is not on you, it’s on me.

Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES It sure seems that way. Christie is reportedly heading home to New Jersey to re-evaluate his candidacy. He was very clearly a dog backed into a corner in the New Hampshire debate, and he attacked who he saw as the biggest threat on the way to being the “Establishment” candidate – Marco Rubio. However, the strategy did not work, | Read More »
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES Sadly, it appears that New Hampshire may have muddied the GOP field, rather than clarifying it. Even though Kasich and Jeb do not have obvious paths forward to the nomination, they are going to convince themselves that they do, at least through Super Tuesday – and they will probably find donors who will indulge that belief. Somewhere, Donald Trump | Read More »
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES The GOP Establishment is bound to be looking at New Hampshire, a state where they perform well, seeing Donald Trump coming away with a major and distant first place, and weeping to themselves that their party has gone so terribly awry. There are a couple of things I’d like to say to them, but in the interest of keeping | Read More »
