America sees the future fast-forwarded


"In this war between the ruling class and the middle-class Tea Partiers, the mainstream media has abandoned the role of being on the sidelines as a referee and has joined the battle on the side of the ruling class. No longer is it a watchdog against abuses by the powerful or against institutional corruption. The media is now the attack dog against the Tea Party movement, the Constitution, and the populist revolt of middle-class Americans."
Tucson and the Kamikaze Left
By Richard Viguerie

Following their shellacking in the first regularly scheduled federal election of the Tea Party era, the political left and the ruling-class media made predictable calls for civility in political discourse. I say predictable because, as a general rule, the left and their media partners make calls for bipartisanship and civility only when conservatives ascend to political power, and they direct it only at conservatives, not at the extremists on their side.

The recent tragedy in Tucson, however, displayed in condensed hours and days the visceral, disgraceful desperation of the left and ruling-class media.

Americans, through the Tea Party movement, are in a peaceful political war against the ruling class. To the everyday Americans-turned-political-activists, this is a war for the future of the America we cherish. The ruling class understands this is a war against the self-dealing privilege and kleptocracy they've created over many decades.

The verbal and printed attacks on Tea Party conservatives following the Tucson tragedy, however, show that the left and ruling-class media are in kamikaze mode. They are sacrificing all semblance of decency and credibility -- or what little they have left -- to defeat the rise of small-government constitutional conservatives.

I'm amazed that NBC etc is still in business.

The more outrageous the Main Stream Media becomes, the more they wake up average America. Today's Main Stream Media has become irrelevant to the day to day living in this country.

Anon... Ratings are ignored and the broadcast networks become flashy vanity toys. The harder they push their politics, the more viewers they lose.

Woody... You have ton ask "When was the last time I watched a major network's national news?"

Case closed.

Some Donks in CT are reported to be urging Olbermann to run for Lieberman's seat in 2012. Is this an asylum, or what?

Nickie Goomba said...

Woman, that slow death seems way to slow for me. It's sort of like watching DC reach for his wallet to pick up a check. It seems to take forever.

Rhod... I don't see the downside.

American conservatives have jammed a stick into the liberals' ant hill. And just like ants, the little liberal workers are feverishly scurrying about carrying their pupae and larvae and curly light bulbs looking for a safe location while the bigger, fiercer warrior ants roam about gnashing their mandibles at anything that moves in the media.

I am so not going to listen to Barry Soetoro, the Indonesian gigolo, and his siren song tonight.

Great post:)

Siggie... I too will avoid the circus. I'll leave it to the MFM to filter the speech and explain to me why "Bama is so wonderful.

Even Pravda would have been embarrassed.

Nickie Goomba said...

Thanks, Toy. You're a classy frail, my dear.

I HATE the word 'watchdog' when it comes to guarding important things like nuklar proliferation or 'consumer interests'.
Or anything else important that doesn't directly involve my front or back yard.

Nickie Goomba said...

Kid... "Hate" is such an ugly word. This blog is nothing if not politically correct, so, you are banned for 20 minutes.

GNN will never tolerate hate speech. (GNN apologizes for the repeated use of the word "hate".)

(Oops. Sorry again.)

Nickie, I SWEAR I typed the word Unity...
