Try to avoid letting media hype trick you into making any bad decisions, like voting for an Obamacrat or doing what this dumbass did. K? Seriously, don’t be this guy.

Normally, I leave economic commentary to ILC, because it’s his bag. But he probably has much better things to do on NYE than I do, and there is commentary to be made. According to the MFM and the Democrat Party — but I repeat myself — the economy under Obama is doing totes amazeballs, and anyone who says otherwise is a racist Bible-Thumper bitterly clinging to his ‘Duck Dynasty’ bib’alls.
However, when you look at the actual math (which liberals hate because math is emotionless and rational), the real picture is one where Government spending and debt have exploded and the private economy has withered or, at best, stagnated.
Not even reliable left-wing rag Mother Jones is buying the hype of the so-called economic recovery.
Under Obama and the Democrats, stagnation has become the new normal. There is no plan for economic recovery. They are only hoping they can continue to borrow and spend enough to keep the plates spinning until January 2017, and keep ginning up divisive controversies like ‘Duck Dynasty,’ the ‘War on Women’ and Trayvon Martin to keep the country divided and distracted from their economic failures.
When pro-lifers like myself suggest adoption as the preferred alternative to abortion, it is common for pro-abortionists to sneer, “Yeah, as if conservatives are ever going to adopt an unwanted black baby.”
And then, they attack Mitt Romney’s family for adopting a black baby… because Racism.
On MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry on Sunday, the panel was discussing several topics of the “of the year” variety. In the below clip, panelists are shown photos ‘of the year” and asked to offer humorous captions. Host Harris-Perry shows a Romney family photo that includes his adopted grandchild, who happens to be black, and this is the reaction:The panelists start laughing the moment the photo is on the screen, because obviously. Then the first response is Pia Glenn off-camera sing-songing “one of these things is not like the others, one of these things just isn’t the same” and the rest of the panel chuckles along. It’s funny because Romney is white and his grandson isn’t, which is obviously hilarious. Because as everyone knows, the races should not mix.
Do ya think Melissa Harris-Perry suspects the Romney’s were motivated by tokenism to adopt a black baby because that’s the precise reason MSNBC was motivated to hire her as an anchor? Iowahawk does.
Update: Melissa Harris-Perry issues the pro-forma liberal fauxpology. Next week, back in-line at the chanting circle.
Progressives manufacture the consensus of their own intelligence and insist that it proves them right.
Imagine a million people walking in a circle and shouting, “WE’RE SMART AND WE’RE RIGHT. WE’RE RIGHT BECAUSE WE’RE SMART. WE’RE SMART BECAUSE WE’RE RIGHT.” Now imagine that these marching morons dominate academia, the government bureaucracy and the entertainment industry allowing them to spend billions yelling their idiot message until it outshouts everyone else while ignoring the disasters in their wake because they are too smart to fail.
That is liberalism.
And if you aren’t walking in the circle, chanting the chant… then you must be a racist, ignorant, Bible-thumping, redneck, extremist, anti-woman, hick.
Since I will have more to say about which candidate we will endorse in 2016 than any other editor at the Times, let me be clear: We have not chosen Mrs. Clinton. We have not chosen anyone. I can also state definitively that there was no editorial/newsroom conspiracy of any kind, because I knew nothing about the Benghazi article until I read it in the paper on Sunday.
“Let me be clear”… “I knew nothing until I read about it in the paper…” Gosh, those cadences sound familiar.
Are the left-wing media nothing more than mindless bleating sheep? You tell me.
Keep this in mind as they all start blathering over the wonders of Obamacare, and how awesome Hillary is.
Update: On a related note… Check out the MSDNC 2013 Highlight Reel.
‘With the first link, the chain is forged. The first speech censured…the first thought forbidden…the first freedom denied–chains us all irrevocably.’ Those words were uttered by Judge Aaron Satie, as wisdom…and warning. The first time any man’s freedom is trodden on, we’re all damaged.” – Star Trek: The Next Generation “The Drumhead“
Hollywood used to think blacklists and the suppression of free speech were terrible things when applied to communists who were working to undermine and destroy the United States of America; but blacklists and suppression are now good things when used to advance the Gay Agenda. But GLAAD has shown them that blacklisting can be a very effective tool in squashing free speech that they don’t agree with.
Within hours of GLAAD’s publication of my addition to the list, which amounts to an excommunication from polite society, an e-mail was sent to the president of my university, along with dozens of other high officials in California, with the announcement: ROBERT OSCAR LOPEZ PLACED ON GLAAD WATCH LIST.
Aside from that one fling on Al Jazeera, since GLAAD placed me on their blacklist, no secular media outlet has invited me on its show in the United States. In-depth interviews with me have been broadcast in Chile, Russia, France, Ireland, and a number of other nations. In the United States, Christian broadcasters like the American Family Association and Frank Sontag’s “Faith and Reason” show in Los Angeles have interviewed me. And I’d been interviewed, prior to the GLAAD blacklisting, by Minnesota affiliates of NBC, CBS, Fox, and NPR, as well as a number of newspapers. Since GLAAD’s blacklisting, none.
Prior to GLAAD’s blacklisting, I had received calls from people at universities discussing their interest in having me come to campus and give speeches. Three were working with me to set up dates. Since GLAAD’s blacklisting, none. Those who had discussed this with me said point-blank that their superiors did not want to create controversy.
The idea behind this form of proactive speech suppression is simple; punish one man and terrify a thousand more into silence for fear of losing their careers, their income, their social standing.
And underneath it all, leftist progressives don’t really respect teh gheys, they just patronize them for the sake of political correctness, so they can flaunt their “tolerance” they way Victorians flaunted their piety. But every once in a while, the mask slips, as with Alec Baldwin, Al Franken, Tracy Morgan and others… and gay leftists are made aware of the sad little secret that those who are supposed to be their biggest supporters privately loathe and ridicule them.
I imagine that explains at least some of their inconsulable bitterness.
Thomas the Tank Engine has been blamed for a lack of women train drivers by the shadow transport secretary.
Mary Creagh said it was a ‘national scandal’ that there were so few women drivers on the railways, but was ridiculed for saying that the popular children’s story was partly to blame.
She said all the main characters in the original books – published in the 1940s – are male, and the only female characters are an ‘annoyance, a nuisance and in some cases a danger’ to the railway.
According to her Wikipedia page, Mary Creagh is a typical leftist whackjob whose previous achievements include campaigns against carbonated beverages and hot water, and who has been described as “lacking in balanced judgment.”
Needless to say, she will never have to worry about being added to GLAAD’s blacklist.
I am making predictions, and I challenge Jeff and the othe cob loggers to make some as well. I don’t claim to be a psychic, but I feel pretty good about these predictions.
- The Republicans will totally cave to Obama on the Debt Ceiling, just like they caved on the Budget Deal. The Republican leadership will clap each other on the back over the great deal they got and the MFM will cheer, and spending will continue unabated.
- Obamacare will continue to cause hardship and suffering; the administration will continue to issue exemptions and extensions to try and contain the political damage.
- Republicans will pick up 2-4 seats in the Senate but will fall short of a majority. Democrats will run their usual “War on Women” campaign together wih rampant use of social media to spread outrageous lies about GOP candidates, because that stuff works so well with the Democrats’ low information voter base
- A Democrat congressman, senator, or governor will be found to have engaged in sexual misconduct; the MFM will protect him per Standard Operating Procedure unless defending him becomes politically untenable.
- House Republicans will sneak through an Amnesty Bill in the lame duck session, perhaps earlier.
- There will be a new Obama scandal involving corruption and the abuse of power; the MFM will do their level best to bury it and delegitimize it.
- Media hype over gay athletes at Sochi will eclipse coverage of the actual sporting events.
- More evidence will emerge debunking the hoax of Anthropogenic Global Warming; it will be ignored by the media and the Government.
- There will be a shooting in a gun-free zone, which will receive much media coverage, which will wane after the shooter cannot be connected to the Tea Party or the NRA.
- An atheist group will sue because a town’s innocuous display of religious, specifically Christian, symbols claming it made them all angry and hurt their feelers stuff. Also, Bill Maher will continue to spout things far more offensive than Phil Robertson without consequence.
I predict that my predictions will prove much more accurate than those of this Nobel-prize winning leftist:
One of the more interesting things to happen since the ‘Duck Dynasty’ drama moved in to fill the void in a very slow holiday news cycle is that the left suddenly became champions of employers’ rights. Employers may not have the right to refuse to provide employees with free contraception, according to the left, but they sure do have the right to fire and punish people who make GLAAD all mad and stuff.
But what if the scenario were different? What if A&E were a bakery that, as a matter of company policy, did not provide cakes for same sex weddings. And what if Phil Robertson were an employee of that company who spoke out against that policy and was fired. Would GLAAD and the left still champion an employer’s right to fire an employee simply for saying things the management disagreed with?
For people who are intellectually consistent, the rights of the employer would not change based on the content of the speech. However, one cannot help but think that the left would respond differently if a different ox were being gored.
