In light of the recent events surrounding the covert operation which ended the life of Osama Bin Laden as well as Colonel Gadhafi, I have been witnessing much in the news that absolutely leaves me befuddled and bordering on distressed and certainly confused.
First of all, the major media no longer even feign at a pretense of objectivity as best as I can tell. If I were less informed, I would have no choice but to conclude they work for the Democratic National committee. The utter hypocrisy let alone the outright cheer leading is more than I can consume and still maintain a modicum of sanity. Do they not hear themselves or better still, have they forgotten what they said/reported when a President of a party with which they disagree was in command?
They apparently had a major problem under Bush with some tough questioning of the enemy. Today we know this same tough questioning led to this ” capture/operation if you will “, but evidently that is simply OK or better for them, simply to be forgotten so the cheering of the chosen one may proceed. Secondly, our President and Attorney General decided to treat these types not as enemy combatants, but the same as US citizens with constitutional rights and given a day in court. The ACLU and the Media demanded this and Obama and Holder concurred and demurred. Well forgive me but what has changed that says these killers/combatants are no longer entitled to these rights and we have a green light to invade a sovereign nation and take them out? Torture bad, Killing Ok? Nobel Peace Prize anyone? See any hypocrisy from the media? I sure do.
Of course I will lose no sleep as to this result but the fawning by the press is more than I can stomach. What utter and blind hypocrisy. Or is it just blind ideology? Likely both. This new compliant media can best be described by me as an arm of the DNC. I see no other alternative.
Thirdly, our media always requests, nay demands an apology if a competing voice makes a statement which upsets them or their chosen Pol. I have heard only silence regarding the Left leaning Mike Malloy ( Radio Talker ) who in effect asked ” when will Seal Team 6 visit President Bush, who is responsible for more death than OBL”. A death wish to a former President. How charming for one so tolerant as he claims to be. Has the earth’s Axis tilted or have I? Obviously the vitriol will not go away anytime soon and the Nation is much the poorer for it. As to the Media, shame on yourselves for the consummate Dereliction of Duty you exhibit daily. Either report or go join the Peace Corps. God Bless our Great Seal teams and drones now and forever more. We owe them a major debt.
