Allow me to bring to your attention what I think is just a great, touching, feel-good story of a High School football team, and its coach, giving up a shut-out football game to give a 15-year-old football player with Downs Syndrome a moment of glory by scoring a touch town. Sometimes, you can really feel love for ordinary Americans’ big hearts. (Unless you’re the President on Jay Leno–see below) Please take a moment to look at the brief video here.
In contrast, of course, there’s Barack Hussein Obama, not at all “ordinary,” staging Sunday’s extraordinary (for America) spectacular propaganda farce in which he appeared in five (5) Sunday morning network shows on politics. He promised “change” and this was a definite “change”: No President has ever been so audacious in managing the news; no president has ever demonstrated such audacity as to take over network broadcasts, one after the other, — except Fox News, which was not invited, alas, which was punished by exclusion.
There was the President, sitting in the same chair in the same setting, responding to the same questions with the same propagandistic answers, for five consecutive interviews by the TV celebrity interviewers who lined up like children to take their turn, ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, and even Univision, the monolingual Spanish speaking network that declines to speak English. (No doubt the 12-20 million illegal aliens in he country will appreciate being “included,” touched by such politically correct, liberal, Obamalove. But why is it “politically correct” to include a network making its money by appealing solely to people who refuse to learn English and supporting demonstrations of illegal aliens demanding instant amnesty, but not “politically incorrect” to exclude a major American, English-speaking network, Fox News,which appeals to millions of patriotic Americans who are fed up with the kowtowing media who were included, including, ludicrously, Univision, voice of illegal aliens?)
Everybody who was there, figuratively genuflected before him, eager to report his every “ahhh…ahhh” and shuffle-step stutter as he searched for words without his teleprompter there from which he could read the words approved for him by David Axelrod, Obama’s Rasputin.
There were network’ stars, doggy-like, eager to hear their “master’s voice,” as the old advertisement used to say, and to convey those words, “ahh…ahh’s” deleted from print media accounts, so that “the people” might be propagandized in a manner unprecedented in America, but not without historical precedent elsewhere, e.g., Mussolini’s Italy after his “youth movement” took power on a campaign of “hope and “change” and then changed Italy into a fascist state in 1922; Adolph Hitler following Mussolini’s model to establish fascist Germany and appoint Dr. Goebbel’s as his propaganda “czar;” Mao in communist China, letting loose the “Revolutionary Guards” composed of fanatic youths propagandized by Mao’s “Red Book;” Sadaam Hussein Al-Tariki in Iraq, etc., et al. Will the media which kowtowed on Sunday do so again if Obama openly appoints Axelrod or someone else as “Propaganda Czar”?
Fox News was not invited, excluded by the “inclusive” President, of course, not only to punish it but to send the message from tObama that he will punish media who don’t genuflect before him. After all, Fox is the broadcast medium which didn’t pre-empt its time to broadcast Obama’s Obamacare political speech before Congress, but which did expose Obama’s former client, ACORN, the fruit of his work as a “community organizer; ” and exposed, among other things, Obama’s “green” employment Czar, Van (real name: Anthony) Jones as a self-identified “communist” desiring not “reform” of aspects of America but radical revolution to overflow American constitutional capitalism; and which network is believed to have become the primary broadcast news source of American patriots who reject communists, socialists, and fascists like Obama’s Van Jones, an estimated 70,000 to 2-million of who gathered in Washington, D.C. to oppose a transformation of America which would increase the size and intrusion of government at the expense of freedom.
In short, the so-called “mainstream” media has been absolutely spineless in reporting on Obama himself and the Obama Regime. Indeed, George Orwell‘s “Big Brother” in “1984” could take lessons from Obama on emasculating the media.
However, the worms may be turning. The biggest worm of all, the New York Times says Obama’s managing the news was so blatant that it, “[W]as a remarkable–and remarkably overt–display of media management…. “Mr. Obama declined to discuss his proposals on the one network guaranteed to find fault (or change the topic to the ACORN scandal), Fox. And that made his star turn look like a media blitz than Medici vengeance…a rare sign of frustration and payback….”
Ohmygod–Obama criticized by the New York Times? Enjoy it because it’ll never happen again.
The America represented by those kids who cooperated to allow another kid to score a touchdown, that is the America worth supporting. Obama’s manipulation of media, or truth, should be condemned. It is conduct unworthy of an American president and it’s insulting to the American people.
