Liberal PropagandaNewsweek, despite its un-bias sounding name has lost all threads to reality. They freely reference the John Lewis' trip through the tea party and the racial slurs hurled at him. What they don't tell you is that he was followed by a whole camera crew and the audio and reactions of those on camera don't corroborate any evidence that racial slurs were slung. Emanuel Cleaver was spat on but what they don't tell you is that watching video the spit comes from a protestor yelling at him and spit coming from his mouth. He didn't purposefully spit, and we all have had an incident where talking to someone saliva has been sent flying. He was spit on but it was clearly accidental. None of this matters though according to Newsweek. The article, “Drowning in Hate,” by Ellis Cose desperately defines conservatives and tea party members as racists.
“What happens when [the citizens of] a country can't talk to one another constructively,” said Cleaver's spokesperson. Obamacare. I will remind everyone that we are coming off of a controversial war where Democrats voted for the war and every financial bill for it but were against it. Democrats offered nothing constructive on the war. Obama was outspoken about not supporting the incredibly successful surge in Iraq. Obama came in with huge majorities and met two major obstacles to health reform. The Republicans and the American people. When Republicans and the American people said no to Obamacare, apparently they weren't talking constructively. I always thought being constructive meant that you listened to people, the people spoke in polls. Is it any surprise that there is a backlash when a highly popularized bill is rejected by the public and the administration passes it anyway?
Democrats are mad that there is heated rhetoric over health care but isn't it obvious that passing something the American people don't want would be heated? “An analysis by Media Matters for America, a media-watchdog group, blames the irresponsible and harshly partisan language for much of the misinformation accepted by a shockingly high percentage of the public.” This is basically saying that liberal media plus the White House couldn't overcome the message of Fox News. I believe in America, and that means that the best argument wins. If the White House and liberal media can't overcome Fox News then Fox is probably right. To say different is to say that the American people are stupid.
This administration has campaigned constantly for this health care bill and they haven't convinced the people it is good for them. The backlash isn't because of conservative commentators that people agree with, it is because of a liberal agenda being forced upon the American people. The article goes on to point out a militia that was raided. It was a conservative militia and I don't support it and most of America doesn't support a violent overthrow of the United States government. Still the article blames conservative rhetoric rather than wondering if passing a huge socialist bill against the will of the people might, in some way, possibly, have something to do with it.
If you don't believe me yet then please listen to this last bit. Keith Olbermann recently criticized Rush Limbaugh for referring to the Obama administration as a regime. He said it was unheard of and that McCarthy hadn't even done such a terrible thing. That is the guy who promoted an arbitrary manhunt for communists in government. The funny thing is that if you google “Bush Regime,” thousands of hits pop up including ones from Olbermann himself. Liberals make a hobby horse of obfuscation. They don't have real points but they have enacted a media sense of guerilla warfare. They push an idea until it is debunked and then they switch and go for something else. They don't bother with history or anything that could put their lies to the test. Talk to a liberal for ten minutes, if you can, and try and get them to refute your points. It won't turn out well. If you have a subscription to Newsweek, cancel it. Those guys totally blow.
