This isn’t some Alt-Right nut. This is coming from a Congressman representing a district in Michigan, Jack Bergman.
I am not a big fan of the sycophantic political ones, though these are often not terrible. There are good moments in every single episode. But the ones that are not political are amazingly hilarious. Like the one with Steve Carell. And Will Ferrell. And Conan. And Jennifer Aniston. I wish Zach would do more of ’em.
Having disgraced news anchor Dan Rather, who I have dubbed “Dan Blather,” teach (or more aptly, preach) a course on journalistic integrity is like having Nazis promoting tolerance.
You want me to spend 19 bucks on this nonsense. The company behind this gag, called Udemy, should be paying me to watch this drivel.
Rather was fired from the CBS Evening News after a thorough investigation into a story about George W. Bush. It was a smear job and not a very good one. The documents on which the news story was based proved to be fake.
But it was too good a smear to waste on fact checking. It was an example of the recent media narrative on fake news. However, most will conveniently ignore this example. It’s a bit too inconvenient.
Yet, to this day, despite the overwhelming evidence otherwise, Rather continues to believe that the story is true, which shows just how biased and insular he really is. He is a die hard liberal, an activist masquerading as a journalist. But these days he is far from alone.
He, like so many others in the media, is a joke and has been for a very long time. One of the greatest moments of the Bush 41 era is when George H. W. Bush fought back while being interviewed by Rather. Unfortunately, it was a rare moment. Bush 41 was a bit too conciliatory and polite.
Thankfully, we have entered a new era. Trump has thrown out these outmoded conventions.
The police are the heroes
Ben Stein writing at the American Spectator gives us some perspective and numbers on the police and the state of black culture in America.
“It’s a total utter lie that police shootings are a major cause of black deaths.”
Most are suicides, sadly.
“The huge majority of the rest are black-on-black gang and drug related shootings.”
That’s the major, underlying issue here: the lack of courage within the black community to confront what really plagues their neighborhoods. It’s the crime, the violence, the drugs.
“The Obama clique makes no effort at all to rein in these gangs. The gangs kill and no one proposes any laws about it at all.”
President Obama has been much a president. Sure, he’s won two elections. He’s held the office. But he has been everything but presidential. He has shown virtually no leadership on these and other critical issues.
“There is a giant super crisis among blacks: Violence. Drugs. The collapse of the family. Pitiful education. Low participation in the labor force. None of this is caused by the police.”
Federal, state and local leaders must begin to address the collapse of the black family and their communities.
How dare you, Organizing for America! How dare you threaten a cute, little bunny rabbit!
And in the attempt to sell crap to Americans who usually demand freebies!
Healthcare for all!
Contraception for all!
Abortion for all!
Shouldn’t the swag be free, too?
Oh, the irony.
At least there’s free shipping. Is it really free though? Gotta spend more than forty bucks.
What a revealing lesson in liberalism.
The healthcare, the abortions, the condoms et al aren’t really free. There is a cost associated with all, often more than just monetary.
Ceding power to the government means less power for the people. And, of course, someone, no matter what they say, has to pay the bill.
What this very commercial propaganda campaign really looks to accomplish, based on the merchandise available, is to pressure the spineless Senate Republicans into confirming Judge Garland to succeed Justice Scalia.
P.S. No one threatened to harm the bunny, by the way. I just made that part up.
