Wonder what you would find if you frisked the liberal main stream media?
Answer: They love calling their opponents “unpatriotic.”
Pretty ironic if you ask me. Of course, it’s just typical rhetoric you hear from the far-left who cannot make legitimate arguments so they resort to demonizing the competition. Plain and simple.
Here is a little demonization from the liberal media calling conservatives “Un-American” during the last 10 months or so:
Bill Press, syndicated columnist and former CNN host: “There’s only one thing left: to rename the party for what it really stands for. It’s no longer the Republican Party; it’s the Hate America Party.”
Eugene Robinson, Washington Post columnist: “Why, oh why, do conservatives hate America so?…As Republican leaders — except RNC Chairman Michael Steele — are beginning to realize, “I’m With the Taliban Against America” is not likely to be a winning slogan.”
CNN Headline News host Joy Behar: Guest Richard Belzer: “We see, you know, they`re cheering when we don`t get the Olympics and – and demeaning the Nobel Prize…Joy Behar: Right, which is so un-American.
MSNBC’s host Ed Schultz: “This attack on President Obama trying to get the Olympics is about the most un-American thing I think I’ve ever seen.”
Radio host Cynthia Hardy on MSNBC’s Hardball: “So [with the case of Rep. Joe Wilson] what you get is this blatant disregard for the office of the presidency, which is extremely un-American.”
MSNBC’s host Ed Schultz: “Rush must have been popping a few too many pills that particular day. Turning a hopeful message about the resiliency of Americans into a partisan attack. That’s un-American ‘Psycho Talk,’ which is par for the course.”
Blogger Steve Clemons, appearing on MSNBC: “Jesse Helms of North Carolina was chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee for many years. And many of these folks that have come into their own today, particularly in the Bush administration, were essentially tutored by Helms to bring, you know, somewhat of a ‘Fortress America’ attitude to the comments, which are, I think, quite unpatriotic.”
CNN Headline News host Joy Behar: “Now why don`t you figure that this is a little unpatriotic for [Palin] to go to Hong Kong and badmouth the president of the United States? At the very least it’s disrespectful.”
Newsweek‘s Jonathan Alter, appearing on MSNBC: “But they’re trying to delegitimize him in any way they can, be as disrespectful, not just to him but to the office as they can. And to my mind, to be actually, what I would call unpatriotic in their approach.”
MSNBC host Keith Olbermann: “How are Democrats, anything but at best — I`ll use this combination — irresponsible at worst, unpatriotic for giving that party more say than utterly necessary than what they have already in many amendments of this bill in health care reform.”
How can you call conservatives unpatriotic? In general, the ideology of conservatives is based on the traditional values that founded this great country. Granted, the Republican Party has lost their way throughout the years, but hopefully they’ll jump back on the right path soon.
As for the idea of a nanny state (that the far-left adores) it is just simply absurd and headed down the road of tyranny. I know there are good Democrats out there, but for the far-left… They’d love to toss a rope across the Atlantic Ocean to Western Europe and pull us together. Here’s an idea: Instead of wasting your time trying to ‘change’ America into a nanny state, why don’t you just move over there so you can sip your beverage with your pinky up in the air, pay huge taxes, and be pampered by the government. Please, I insist.
Side-Note: I am sure there were a small number of people who wanted to spite the President over the Olympics, but the majority of the opposition came from listening to what HALF the people of Chicago wanted. This might shock all you liberals out there, but half of Chicago DIDN’T want the Olympics. Reminder: It brings monster debt to almost every city, but I guess spending is one of your stronger characteristics.
But of course, like most liberals, they feel they know what’s best for everyone and that they’re on Earth to put you down the right path… Involuntary.
