Just when you think the morning newspaper publication couldn’t get any more insulting to Republicans, they say, “yes we can.”
Today we’re hit with it from Page 1 to the Appeal section to Local with a slap on the editorial page. I’m surprised they couldn’t work one in on the obit page. Surely Donald Trump has killed someone in Shelby County or one of the contiguous other state counties in the past few days.
Or the sports page, although it could be there. I’m just not sports person. Since Trump likes golf and owns golf courses I’m sure they can work on this.
Now that we’re down to fewer than 100 days before the election, media is doing its best to show Americans that Trump is a Nazi/Hitler/Stalin/serial killer/sexist/homophobe/racist/anti Islamic meanie. You know, the standard slime used against Republicans.
Page 1 talks about “Trump refuses to back down/Furor over his reply to Muslim soldier’s parents.” They leave out some important details about the father. From The Conservative Treehouse blog:
Kahn’s primary area of expertise -as advertised- is legal aide and legal services for Muslim immigration assistance.
Khizr Muazzam Kahna also used to work for Hogan, Hartson and Lovells law firm within Washington DC which has direct ties to the Clinton Foundation.
Hogan, Hartson, Lovells are one of the lobbying entities for Saudi affairs in Washington DC.
[…] Hogan Lovells LLP, another U.S. firm hired by the Saudis, is registered to work for the Royal Embassy of Saudi Arabia through 2016, disclosures show. Robert Kyle, a lobbyist from the firm, has bundled $50,850 for Clinton’s campaign”
Maybe not the pure American he proclaims.
Then we are treated to Kathleen Parker’s editorial, “At this point, we are all Democrats.” Says who? Since when has she been a Republican spokesperson? She works at the Washington Post, owned by Jeff Bezos who has made it his personal jihad to take Trump out. Besides, what does anyone in DC know about the rest of the country? They’ve been wrong so many times it renders them pointless.
The Local section talks about a woman in North Mississippi who was arrested for domestic assault last week. They played this yesterday, too. Tell me, what does domestic assault have to do with the Trump campaign? Why did they feel the need to point this out? Connection? Don’t see one. Others say she is not connected with the campaign, so why is this newsworthy?
Appeal gives us two hits. One talks about “mixed marriages” – that is where one is a Democrat and the other Republican. I guess we’re supposed to commiserate with the Democrat having to put up with the stupid GOPer.
The other article, “Scan of brain can predict political affiliation” continues the discord. Some scientist somewhere (and there always is one to drag up somewhere) says that we think differently because of our brains. The Republicans react from a part of the brain related to fight or flight fear response; for the Dems it’s the part associated with social and self awareness. He concludes thus the GOP convention “highlighted the fears among Americans by focusing on terrorism and crime while the Democrats touted hopeful themes of equality and unity.” He wants to reinforce the media narrative that Trump’s talk was dark and depressing while overlooking the anger of the Bernie-ites in Philly and the lack of answers to any problems given by them either.
I’ve seen this at play even on the Food pages. Remember how GHW Bush hated broccoli while opponent Michael Dukakis wanted to promote Belgian endive farming as a salvation to agricultural problems? The Dems are all about local, organic, healthy foods while Republicans eat junk and back – horror! – foods with GMOs in them. In other words, they are so much more spiritually and ethically above us.
The slogan “Yes we can” gets new meaning in today’s media. Yes we can get a terrible candidate riddled with corruption and lies elected. Yes we can defeat someone the people have chosen to lead them. Yes we can ignore any evils the Clintons have done while finding nothing but that with the Trumps.
Hold on, it’s going to be a rough few months.
