Evidence of that being that when Howard Dean lost out on his Party’s nomination to John Kerry in 2004, I wrote a column coming to Dean’s defense. In the piece, I outlined how this same media systematically sabotaged the Dean campaign. Why would these “unbiased journalists” do such a thing? Because they didn’t think Dean could beat Bush in the general election, and their hatred of the President trumped the ethics of not torpedoing Dean in favor of someone they thought could win.
Make no mistake, as Republicans or conservatives, if we don’t vote in this election, we are giving voice to those in the media who willingly betray their noble profession to manufacture a desired outcome. We would be making it easier for them to do something that is not only un-American, but purposely circumvents the will of our Founders.
In trampling the Constitution, these left of center “journalists,” see no problem inventing “facts” to further their partisan agenda. Such as, instead of the 30,000 to 60,000 civilian deaths in Iraq estimated by even some Democrat leaning studies, they tell the voters it’s really 650,000 dead and dare the Administration to knock down the lie.
In case that doesn’t do the trick, these partisan “journalists” think nothing of taking a truly evil video gift wrapped and handed to them by Islamist terrorists that shows American soldiers being murdered by sniper fire, and putting it on the air. Hitler’s propaganda minister surely smiling from Hell as the tape rolls.
Point being, the liberals in the media masquerading as journalists, will do anything to undermine those who don’t bow to their opinion and will. To counter such hubris and totalitarian thinking, we need to vote.
Think of it, not as a vote for those Republicans who have let us down, but rather, a vote in defense of democracy, and against those with unchecked power who seek to weaken that which our soldiers fight to preserve and bestow.
On election day, vote to honor liberty while sending a message to a media that has forgotten its sacred mission.
