With four days to go the reports from MSM are all about Democrats closing in and various other tactics to deflate Republican turnout. For the disclaimer, I acknowledge that as election day looms in our immediate future, races do tighten. This is a common event in our elections, especially with how MSM covers the polls. But this seems to go a bit further than that and for me is reminiscent of the 2004 election, and MSM efforts to close the gap for Kerry to defeat Bush. Recall, that effort failed then too!
Take for example, this headline on Hot Air that is credited to Reuters: “Hot New Election Read from Reuters: Tea Party Candidates Are Scaring Republicans Into Voting Democratic.” (Hot Air)
There have also been reports throughout media that demonstrate Democrats, progressives and their media minions want to “shame” conservatives and Republicans into not voting for the candidate of their choice with efforts at defaming any who would vote for a Tea Party supported candidate as “bigot, racist, redneck moron,” etc. This is an effort to make the conservative voter feel that if they pull the lever for a conservative politico, they are willingly joining the group of the lowest of the low, better known as conservatives who have the temerity to not agree with progressives. I mean it’s not an effort to get their base to hate us – that’s a given, no?
Recall John Kerry’s comment a few weeks ago about “It’s absurd. We’ve lost our minds,” … We’re in a period of know-nothingism in the country, where truth and science and facts don’t weigh in. It’s all short-order, lowest common denominator, cheap-seat politics.” (Townhall)
It seems political insults have become a fine art form. It reminds me of my writing, but when I defame them I am told I am a bad boy for doing it, but when the professional progressive mainstream media sycophant does it, why it’s true and clever. What a load. Hypocrites – every one of them!
What about DNC efforts, picked up and forwarded wall to wall by MSNBC and other unapologetic leftist media, that the US Chamber of Commerce is a filter for foreign money to elect Republicans and conservatives? Are readers aware that literally dozen upon dozens of Democrats and non-biased news sources have come out and screamed this is pure, unmitigated BS? How about research that shows that by at least 2 to 1, foreign money goes to Democrats, especially filtered through the unions? (National Review)
Honestly, it seems to me Democrats and progressives are really the ones who will dare to ask “Are ya gonna believe me or are ya going to believe your lying eyes?” They will do something that is a mirror image of what Republicans and conservatives do and then scream and point fingers that a conservative is doing “X.”
Lastly, are Democrats in various races actually closing the gaps? In some cases, for sure, but in some cases, I have seen media claim “Democrat X closing gap” and the poll reveals they closed their trailing position from 8 points to 7 points. Isn’t that a bit like it being late in the 4th quarter, down by 24, and your team connects on a field goal? While technically correct, the flavor of the story doesn’t change, now does it? Yet the hopeful and complaint media “used car salesman” is trying their damned best to paint in the Democrat voters mind that yet there is still a chance to eliminate those horrible people who don’t agree with them.
I am not for crushing anyone’s hopes, even Democrats. I want to crush their political dreams, not just their hopes! Why? Because when it comes to this game, and politics is indeed a dirty game, these cats are the purveyors of uber dirty, beyond the pale politics where so long as ya win, it’s all okay. I do not want to win anything through cheating – not now, not ever.
Sorta like the forwarding of the principle, “The ends justify the means.” And just for the record history is filled with ideologies that believed that concept too. So far most have fallen by the wayside, as this one will too. The day of reckoning is nearly upon us.
