Tea Party Targeted by â€œAll the Bolsheviksâ€™ Childrenâ€ (ABC)
Selwyn Duke | July 25, 2012
It wasnâ€™t just that ABCâ€™s Brian Ross was wrong in suggesting that the â€œJim Holmesâ€ he found on a Tea Party website was the same man who committed the heinous crime in Aurora, Colorado.Â Itâ€™s that his comment was indicative of stupidity and corruption.
If Ross had thought for a moment and possessed a grasp of reality, he wouldâ€™ve realized that â€œJim Holmesâ€ is a common name belonging to many hundreds of men throughout the nation. Â If he had some integrity and a desire to be even-handed, he would have vetted the information more before airing itâ€”just as he would have if at issue had been an alleged left-wing association.
Just imagine if someone appeared on TV shortly after the Aurora tragedy and stated, not just to provide biographical info but with an ominous implication, â€œWe now know that Holmes attended UC Riversideâ€¦.â€Â Now, Iâ€™ll be the first to say that modern academia does teach insanity; nonetheless, since this school isnâ€™t known to orchestrate terrorist acts, it wouldnâ€™t leap to mind to implicate it in Holmesâ€™s atrocity. Â The fact is that any given person will have had a number of associations in his life, and few, if any, will bear relevance to a crime he may commit.
So there can be only two reasons why ABC would mention a possible Holmes/Tea Party (TP) association: either its people want to demonize conservatives every chance they get, or they think traditionalist thought constitutes a pathology.Â It turns out that Effluent Stream Media leftists are deeply involved in doing the former and generally believe the latter.
Now, you see, my last line contains what is called a correct profile.Â Because it happens to be true. Â On the other hand, if leftists were intellectually honest, theyâ€™d accept that the TP has been remarkably civilized.Â Unlike Only Whining Socialists (OWS), its events arenâ€™t marked by sexual abuse, the occasional rape, violence, vandalism and slovenly, anti-social behavior.Â Rather, TP attendees protest peacefully, abide by the law, listen to speeches and then go home, leaving the site behind them clean and tidy.Â Itâ€™s the difference between sane citizens and those who mistake police cars for toilet bowls.
In fact, ABC hewed so closely to the leftist profile itâ€™s uncanny. Â Liberals have been trying for ages to get the goods on the TP, but the most their sleuthing has uncovered is an allegation that a black politician was targeted by one or two TP attendees with a racial epithet that, curiously, wasnâ€™t caught on audio or video despite todayâ€™s ubiquity of electronic devices.Â And it must be frustrating. Â That darn reality just refuses to conform to leftist prejudices.
And sometimes prejudices persecute those who promote them. Â Ross might have learned this through his corrupted act, if liberals were receptive to reality and could learn anything contrary to their deified feelings.Â Note that â€œcorruptedâ€ isnâ€™t quite the same as â€œcorrupt,â€ even though many leftists are both.Â When we say a computer file is corrupted, all thatâ€™s being recognized is that itâ€™s degraded and cannot function properly. Â And to whatever extent liberals are willfully corrupt, they are certainly corrupted.Â They cannot, and do not, function properly.
This is, by the way, why ex-newsman Dan Ratherâ€™s career was scuttled (far too late) through an act that was somewhat reminiscent of Rossâ€™s.Â When Rather peddled documents purporting to show that George W. Bush shirked his military duties, he didnâ€™t know they were forged.Â They did, however, align with his prejudices.Â â€œWhy, thatâ€™s exactly how these conservatives are! Â This has to be true; it makes sense.â€ Â But only when youâ€™re senseless. Â Just as with Ross, if a leftist person or entity stood to be impugned through the reportage, Rather would have moved mountains to discover if the documents were authentic; that is, if he would have considered doing the story at all. Â Instead, after a career running with the bulls of his own bovine excrement, he finally suffered a trampling of his own design.
So Iâ€™ll be blunt. Â As is often the case, when leftists accuse conservatives of failings, it is projection. Traditionalist thought is not a pathology.
Liberal unthought is a pathology.
And a severe one that destroys everything it touches.
As Peter Schweizer reported in his piece â€œDon’t listen to the liberalsâ€”Right-wingers really are nicer people, latest research shows,â€ studies have borne out what Iâ€™ve always known: Liberals are cheap, ungenerous, uncharitable, unloving, self-centered, envious, greedy and covetous.Â Theyâ€™re less likely than conservatives to devote time to ailing or needy loved ones, and they even hug their children less. Â And this reflects one reason why they support big government: they assuage their consciences by outsourcing their charity. Â Iâ€™ll add to this that theyâ€™re lustful, prideful, wrathful, often slothful and, if Michael Moore is any indication, gluttonous as well. Â In a word, they are the Seven Deadly Sins incarnate.
As for ABC, since news obviously isnâ€™t its bag, I have a programming suggestion.Â It could replace a certain long-running but recently cancelled soap opera itâ€™s famous for with something that can be called â€œAll the Bolsheviksâ€™ Children.â€Â This could break new ground and help rebuild ABCâ€™s reputation for honesty, as it would be the most self-revelatory reality show in history.
