A Philosophical Holocaust

For those who don’t believe these liberal-inspired times are not truly dangerous to basic – BASIC – freedoms such as the right to assemble and freedom of the press, there are revelations to which they should pay close attention.

Following its reporting that reporters and editorial writers of major news organizations felt it not only proper but necessary to brand as “racist” anyone who disagrees with the Obama agenda, The Daily Caller has now published another terrifying expose of the liberal mindset.

As if branding opposition with disgusting (and inaccurate) labels weren’t enough, these “journalists” and political elitists want to carry it to federal censorship.  In todays report, a producer for National Public Radio wishes for (and delights in the thought of) Rush Limbaugh dying of a heart attack, saying she would “Laugh loudly like a maniac and watch his eyes bug out.

Fox News, to no real surprise, was a prime target for this band of folks who are so much better than the rest of us.

Jonathan Zasloff, a law professor at UCLA, suggested that the federal government simply yank Fox off the air. “I hate to open this can of worms,” he wrote, “but is there any reason why the FCC couldn’t simply pull their broadcasting permit once it expires?”  [emphasis added]

Think about that; disagree with the liberal screed and be removed from public debate?

THIS is the growing legacy of the government and society that’s been allowed to exist and proliferate.

Tea Party activists are also targets of scorn:

… is anyone starting to see parallels here between the teabaggers and their tactics and the rise of the Brownshirts?” asked Bloomberg’s Ryan Donmoyer. “Esp. Now that it’s getting violent? Reminds me of the Beer Hall fracases of the 1920s.”

This is particularly ironic.  Main Street America is now a Nazi-like threat?  It’s the infuriating Left-Putsch that is imposing a fascist grip of censorship and opposition demonization.  They – the people who contributed to this vile exchange and those who share those views – are creating a philosophical holocaust in America.

How are these intellectual criminals going to justify their disgust for the constitution?

I suspect they won’t.  I suspect they don’t care.

  1. Charlie, I wish you were writing of “The Hill.” This is why I am saying that what we need is a “Glorious Revolution” like the one in England in 1688. England determined in those few months what kind of a people they would be and what they would not be. It was a revolution of temperament and no one was hurt.

  2. In a way I was startled by the bluntness, the directness, of the JournoList excerpts, but was not too surprised at the attitude they conveyed and activities the participants promoted.

    What’s disturbing is the willingness of these folks to use their positions to act as gatekeepers of information essential to the proper functioning of the democratic political processes. They are willing to use all means necessary to divert the public’s attention away from the examination of a candidate’s character, going so far as to slander opponents with charges of racism or whatever to do so.

    Perhaps “controlled press” is too strong a phrase, but they were certainly bent on coordinating their efforts on behalf of those candidates they favored. Few of the JornoList participants seem bothered by that nor saw the irony in having to hide aspects of a candidate’s background from public scrutiny as necessary for that candidate’s success. The last thing they want is an informed electorate.

    What the JornoList excerpts also show is the two-faced mendacity of many members. In their public roles of professor of journalism or fair-minded editor of a respected journal, they present themselves as models of probity, good sense, and even temperament. Yet in the locker room they’d revel in the tricks, taunts, and other shenanigans undertaken to promote their narrow viewpoint.

  3. “Getting violent”??? Those aren’t conservatives rioting in Greece because their socialized programs and entitlements are being taken away.
