October 19, 2010 Journalism? Or progressive propaganda
Journalism is no longer the age old watchdog it once was; it is now a propaganda arm for the progressive agenda. The journalists of the past were Americans first, and they took pride in uncovering stories about the ruling class abusing the taxpayer. During WWII journalists were once again Americans first and journalists second; they didn`t feel the need to report stories of how one should understand Hitler and his plight. The journalists of the past dug up the facts of a story and reported it to the public with the intention of letting people hear the story and decide for themselves; this is not the case in America today.
The journalism schools of today are pumping out liberal minded journalists like Henry Ford pumped out automobiles in the last century. The media of today finds the story and tells it from a prospective that leads people to a conclusion. They view a story through the eyes of political correctness and, progressive ideals instead
of reporting the facts. The media of today, when interviewing a politician, will throw the occasional hard ball to a democrat; but holds a template of racism, sexism, bigotry, and greed toward the republican. The media of today will ask relevant, educated questions of the democrat giving them the opportunity to explain his/her ideas; while turning to republican and asking a loaded question about greedy corporations or homosexuality. Give us a damn break you fool`s! There is more important issues going on in the world today other than two men/ women having sex, or if Rand Paul was a Buddhist in college.
The republicans, on the other hand, are so spineless that they fall for these loaded questions and stumble all over themselves trying to answer them; which lend credibility to the question in the end. Some of the Tea Party conservatives are not falling for the template that the left pulls their questions from; I have linked a video of Carly Fiorina being questioned in such a way by some drone reporter at a local
Tea Party event: ( //www.youtube.com/watch?v=HCT8Mnc7hhM ). I was proud to see her “smack down” this jerk by asking him if he happened to notice the thousands of voters around him who had real concerns about America; they don`t care if HP sold printer ink in India!!
Conservatives have got to take back the language in the debate; they have got to be willing to laugh in the face of progressives who call them racists, bigots, and homophobes; instead of having a “deer in the headlights” look on their faces. Conservatism is the majority philosophy according to every poll out there. The left, the progressives, they are the minority in the arena of ideas! It is a so refreshing to see a politician comeback and knock a question from some drone reporter out of the park. It is wonderful to see a conservative who has no fear of the politically correct
media and who will call it like it is. The American Electorate is starving for politicians who will answer a question straight out even if the answers are politically incorrect. The people want politicians who tell it like it is, straight from the hip, and are unafraid of what the polls say.
The religious right in the Republican Party (and I am a Christian) has done damage to our party on the issue of gay marriage and abortion. I am not for abortion, but I think god can be the judge of that issue. My bible tells me to leave judgment to him and I will not be judged. I can go along with making certain aspects of abortion illegal for moral and human rights issues; but some abortions are not the governments concern. The Republican Party has taken a hard stance on gay marriage which has alienated many conservatives who are gay. I don`t give a damn who you sleep with personally, or who you life partner is; I just want to live and let live in a free society. I do blame the gays, however, for feeling the need to put their sex life out there for all to see. I think we should leave our sex lives in the bedroom at home, if I have a fetish of some type I am not going to make it a political issue. I want to say to my gay brothers and sisters, I hope you will ignore the religious right and help us turn the Republican Party around on these issues.
The media will spend the next week running stories which are designed to depress and suppress the conservative vote. Use logic and critical thinking instead of emotion when thinking through these issues. The progressive always pulls on the emotional heart strings with their propaganda; logic is the enemy of the left.
