Open Media Assault On GOP Candidate
"Apparatchiks of the Democratic Party"
A Commentary by J. D. Longstreet
have lived through a lot of presidential election cycles since FDR and I
must tell you, this one is, indeed, strange -- to say the least!
For the first time in my memory, the Mainstream Media is in open assault in the GOP candidate for President.
so-called "fourth estate" (A nick-name for the press) has dropped all
pretense at being non-biased and have thrown their lot in with President
Obama and the democrats and have turned all their fury loose on his
challenger, Mitt Romney, the GOP candidate.
The MsM has finally lost the little respect that still remained among the public for their vocation.
What we are witnessing here is a slobbering love affair between the media and Obama. It is profane and it is vulgar. I COULD
say it is dishonorable and insulting, but, you already know that. And,
frankly, I'm not entirely sure they even understand what "honor" is,
If I still had my press credentials, I'd tear them up out of pure unadulterated shame.
is common knowledge that the MsM is, far and away, left-leaning around
the globe. But here in the US, they're "leaning" no more. For all
intents and purposes they are now apparatchiks of the Democratic Party.
We saw the press "set-up" an ambush of Romney last week all because he dares tell the truth about the Obama Administration's disgraceful
handling of the Libyan consulate/embassy attack. How dare a republican
candidate for President point out that THEIR man -- Obama -- had
screwed-up! The fact that Obama had, indeed, acted as the narcissist
that he is, and even went so far as to attend a fund raising affair
while the Ambassador HE sent to Libya was being murdered and dragged
through the streets of Benghazi -- well, that was beside the point. The
point, so far as the media was concerned, was that "Obama be shielded and protected"
and that Romney be made to look as though he was unduly attacking a
President who was deeply concerned for the welfare of the Ambassador and
the three other men employed by the State Department who also lost
Problem is, the American public could see for
themselves on their own TV sets just how concerned Obama was. He was in
full campaign mode speaking and raking in the dough at a fund raiser!
So much for "respect" for those folks on the front lines of the
diplomatic service risking their lives in Obama's name.
It was disgusting behavior by the President.
then the MsM began to "play" with polling data to make it seem that the
Romney campaign was in a death spiral. They cherry picked polls and
data to prove their "facts." Then they began what seemed, for all the
world, as a coordinated attack on th Romney Campaign by the "elites" of
Within the past few hours of this writing, they are
now lambasting Romney for having said that supporters of Obama were
dependent upon the government.
Yep! Romney, again spoke the truth -- and he is being pilloried for it by the MsM.
all this simply points to another truth concerning the MsM. They are,
indeed, elite. They are insulated form the unwashed masses out herein
the hinterlands who already know that what Romney said about the
government dependent hordes supporting Obama for President is TRUE!
I know having the temerity to utter such a truth makes me a racist.
While I'm at it, I may as well solidify my position as a racist by
uttering another truth. Once Obama is ejected from the Oval Office, it
will be a cold day in Hell before another black man takes up residence
at 16000 Pennsylvania Avenue. Obama and his socialist agenda has done
immeasurable harm to the ranks of black politicians everywhere. It will
be generations before they are able to regain even a portion of the
trust we, in the proletariat, once had for them.
As for the MsM -- they are on the way out. They have only hastened their exit with their
willful undisguised assault on an honorable man such as Mr. Romney.
Their sad unrestrained debauched behavior in reporting on this election
cycle has earned them derision , distrust, and distaste by honorable men
and women in -- and out -- of politics in America as well as the
general public -- the consumers of their untrustworthy reporting.
was apparent over the past few days that even folks on the left side of
the political spectrum in America cringed at the abusive manner the MsM
was/is attacking Mr. Romney. They, too, are repelled at the
demonstration of rabidity on display in the ranks of the MsM's elite.
warned months ago, that this would be the dirtiest campaign in
America's history and we have been proven more than a little prescient.
We also warned that Romney would have to fight and win over Obama, the
Democratic Party, and the Mainstream Media in America to gain the
In my opinion, the American electorate has already
decided for whom it will cast its ballot(s). That small (but
increasing) number of Independent voters, nationwide, may well be the
"ace n the hole," if you will, as the deciding factor in this election.
We can only pray that they are as disgusted with the behavior of the
MsM as we are and will cast their ballots for decency, for honor, for
just "plain ole respect." If they do -- Romney will win and maybe, just
maybe, there will be a slim chance that that precious quality of
conforming to standards of propriety and morality will have, at least, A
CHANCE of rebirth in a nation so badly mauled by the incompetence of
another leftist social experiment -- America's first black President.
must not be allowed to fail. The MsM has taken it upon themselves to
insure the success of the Obama Administration. Unfortunately, Obama's
abysmal failure is writ large across America -- and the globe -- with
the smoke, fire, and murder of Americans in the diplomatic service.
THAT must be minimized by the MsM if their fairy tale of a successful
Obama Presidency is to survive. They seemed to have missed entirely the
American public's conclusion that success within the Obama
administration is -- and has been for a very long time -- comatose or
worse. Their efforts display only how "out of touch" with the American
public the MsM really is.
One can only hope the American voter
will be as angry as this scribe at the MsM's machinations -- their less
than crafty plot to insure Obama's reelection -- and will vote their
anger at the ballot box successfully showing Obama the door AND giving
the MsM the back of America's collective hand.
