God, Cardinal Dolan, and Obama’s MSM
Gene Lalor | September 9, 2012
Â If you missed the benediction offered by Cardinal Timothy Dolan at the end of the 2012 DemocratÂ National Convention, you had plenty of company.Â To say the least, television coverage of the bishop of the New York ArchdioceseÂ was spotty.Â
The DNC was forced to invite Dolan since he is aÂ highly influential bishop of the Catholic Church whoÂ had spoken at the GOP confabÂ the previousÂ week and Barack Hussein Obama desperately needs some Catholic votes in November, especially afterÂ his administration has declaredÂ Obamacare war against Catholics’ freedom to practice their religion.Â
However, that grudging invite didn’t compel Obama’s mainstream media to afford Dolan any attention since to do so would undercut their commitment toÂ his re-election at all costs.Â The cardinal was allowed to speak to theÂ thousands at the convention but that didn’t mean the president’s MSM would allowÂ their audience of millions to listen.Â Â
Fox News and C-SPAN were the only networks to coverÂ the cardinal’sÂ concluding prayer.Â Viewers on ABC, CNN, and PBS could faintly hearÂ his words and could barely see him in the distant backgroundÂ while their pundits analyzed Thursday night’s session in Charlotte andÂ MSNBC, CBS, and NBC dutifully and totally ignored everything he said.Â
The cardinal concludedÂ his impassionedÂ benediction byÂ thankingÂ the Almighty “for the great gift of our beloved country.Â For we are indeed ‘one nation under God,’ and ‘in God we trust.’Â So, dear God, bless America. You who live and reign forever and ever.Â Amen!”Â
During his brief prayer, Cardinal Dolan also touched upon other issues near and dear to the hearts of all true Christians, including the sanctity of all human life, protecting and saving the lives of the pre-born,Â and preserving the institution of traditional marriage, all issuesÂ far from the hearts and minds of Democrats at the DNC.
Along with the deity, those conceptsÂ had beenÂ roundly trashed at the convention which enthusiastically endorsed free abortion on demand, supported freeÂ birth controlÂ for all the Sandra-Flukers out there who demand thatÂ the public pay for their condoms, and advocated for the right ofÂ everyone to marry anyone and everything they so desired.Â Â

The benedictionÂ lacked theÂ drama of a former president who regarded the current president as a jokeÂ in 2008Â when Bill ClintonÂ declared that,Â ”A few years ago, this guy [Obama] would have been carrying our bagsâ€Â and in 2012Â praised him as the best thing to happen in America since he was in office.Â
Â Dolan’s chief goalÂ in the benediction was to remindÂ Americans thatÂ we didn’t build this nation withoutÂ God’s blessings and to remind Democrats thatÂ murdering pre-born babies and marrying people of the same sex were abominations in the sight of God and of most thinking human beings.Â
Even if they couldn’t or wouldn’t graspÂ Cardinal Dolan’s concerns and reasoning, someÂ Obamians apparently caught sufficient snippets ofÂ his address toÂ quickly postÂ amazingly-illiberal, venomousÂ tweets.
As LifeSiteNews put it, they â€œtweeted F-bombsâ€ to the Catholic leader.Â (Warning: If the reader is offended by graphic language, the reader should not try to understand leftists.)Â
Four years ago, foolish American voters cast a majority of their votes for a DemocratÂ candidateÂ few votersÂ knew and fewer understood.Â In 2012, most Americans understand who and what Barack Hussein Obama is and what he represents.Â As aÂ great African-American, Rep. Allen West,Â recently said, If America re-elects Obama we will get what we deserve.Â
We deserve much better than a proven incompetent who may understand organizing communities but hasn’t a clue as to how to lead a nation.Â Â We deserve muchÂ better than a politicianÂ committed to partial birth abortions and to mandating that babies who survive abortions die.Â Â Â We deserve much better than an angry black man committed to his father’s Marxist “dreams.”Â We deserve much better thanÂ a radicalÂ Saul-Alinskyite devoted to undermining the very system that made him president.Â
We deserve much better than a media more concerned with promoting partisan politics than with journalistic ethics.Â
