The elite media in the United States has finally decided to give up any pretense of balance in their reporting.
One of the biggest affirmations that American’s want to stay free of big government control took place on Saturday, September 12, 2009. The event drew over a million people. Some estimate up to 1.7 million. That is not counting the tens of thousands of Americans who attended “tea parties” in their own cities on that same date and previously.
The elite print media reported that “tens of thousands” attended the Washington, D.C. event. Most of the elite print media buried the report many pages into their newspapers. Following suit, the liberal Minneapolis Star Tribune carried the story on page A20 (September 13, 2009). The Strib stated that the event was built on the momentum from the tea parties “held nationwide to protest tax policies, along with growing resentment over the economic stimulus packages and bank bailouts”.
As if this wasn’t bad enough, some in the elite broadcast media denied any knowledge of the Washington event, foremost of which was Charles Gibson who stated in an interview with WLS in Chicago that he purposefully ignored the event while sailing in Maine.
We all know that the tea parties were not just about tax and financial policies. They demonstrated a growing realization that President Obama and his far left, radical administration want to create a liberal fascist state. The protests are about the fact that those attending and millions more want LIMITED GOVERNMENT as prescribed by the Constitution of the United States.
As usual the elite media downplayed the grass roots effort to protect the Constitution. Apparently the perceived value of grass roots protests only exists when carried out by the left as is demonstrated by the focus on the “Occupy Wall Street” morons.
Even before the Washington Tea Party events, the media demonstrated its biased view. When Van Jones resigned from his role in the Obama administration as the “green jobs czar” due to the fact that he had stated on tape that he was a communist and due to the fact that he promoted many other anti-American views, the press stated that conservatives “allege” that he was a communist. They ignored his own statements asserting that he is a communist and all of the other anti-American assertions made by Jones himself.
By the way, does anyone find it strange that President Obama has continued to hire “czars”? Isn’t that a Russian title? Just asking.
Later in 2009, the press once again outdid itself. Following a strong barrage from the conservative media, the elite media finally addressed the issue concerning ACORN (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now). The New York Times (Scott Shane, as reported in the Minneapolis Star Tribune, September 16, 2009) stated that ACORN “had done some work for the campaign”. The report stated that “conservative activists and broadcasters were gleeful about the success” of a sting operation in which ACORN workers instructed a presumed pimp and his hooker on how to deal with tax issues given that they wanted to import Latina children as prostitutes. The article stated that “it was the latest scalp claimed by those on the right who hope to weaken the Obama administration by attacking its allies and appointees they view as leftist”.
First of all, those allies and appointees ARE leftist by their own admission. This is not something made up by the right. Secondly, ACORN demonstrated that it is not guided by law but by their interest in weakening this country by supporting illegal activity such as tax evasion and illegal immigration. But the leftist press cannot acknowledge those facts since they are the mouth piece for President Obama and the rest of the liberal fascists.
Surprisingly, in 2009, the Democrat controlled Senate voted 83-7 to prohibit the Department of Housing and Urban Development from giving federal housing money to ACORN. If a Democrat controlled Senate takes that type of action, the issue must be even worse than we know.
Fortunately for America, ACORN filed Chapter 7 bankruptcy in November 0f 2010. Of course Ameerica will have to bail them out, but at least they are less of a problem now than they were before.
The Times report as carried by the Star Tribune also mentioned that on September 11, the Census Bureau dropped ACORN as a national partner in the 2010 census. No comment was made about why that might have happened. Could it have been due to the fraud that was committed by ACORN during the last election?
This all makes sense when it is clear that the media has joined the Obama Administration in an effort to promote what they consider to be an ideal world – National Socialism (i.e., fascism). No longer do the media even pretend to present a balanced view of national and world events. If not for the internet, Fox News, and conservative talk radio, Americans would continue to live as oblivions, as we did during the Walter Cronkite era. At least now those who are willing to do a little research can learn the truth. It is up to all of us to do so.
The truth sets us free and to ignore the truth will make us all the slaves of big government. Just ask the Germans who were alive during World War II.
