I’m not talking about the nausea-inducing national debt and deficits as far as the eye can see. That’s bad enough. No, what’s enough to make you sick are the progressives calling Americans concerned about the future of our republic “terrorists.” Chris Matthews went as far as saying tea party Republicans are baby-killing terrorists. Joe Biden was quoted referring to the tea party as terrorists, yet ABC News and CBS News ignored it, and all NBC bothered to do was report Biden’s denial. Then today in the “Paper of Record” Joe Nocera accused the tea party of conducting a war on America.
You know what they say: Never negotiate with terrorists. It only encourages them.
These last few months, much of the country has watched in horror as the Tea Party Republicans have waged jihad on the American people. Their intransigent demands for deep spending cuts, coupled with their almost gleeful willingness to destroy one of America’s most invaluable assets, its full faith and credit, were incredibly irresponsible. But they didn’t care. Their goal, they believed, was worth blowing up the country for, if that’s what it took.
Like ideologues everywhere, they scorned compromise.
How vile and disgusting. It was enough to inspire Jonah Goldberg to tell the whole lot of them to go to hell.
Look, I am past exhausted talking about liberal media bias. It’s real, we all know it, and people who deny it aren’t even fooling themselves. But some things just have to be pointed out. This morning I watched the first 15 minutes of the Today Show. I don’t particularly love or even like the program, but I find it useful to see what the producers think is the big news of the day. And sometimes Chuck Todd is on, and I like him. If I sound defensive about watching the show it’s only because I am.
Anyway, the first ten minutes was about Gabby Giffords’ return to the House yesterday. I’m not sure it merited the full ten minutes or trumped the hard news that later followed, but it’s a great story and everyone is rooting for the lady, so I’m fine with it.
But think about this for a second. The Giffords shooting sent the media elite in this country into a bout of St. Vitus’s dance that would have warranted an army of exorcists in previous ages.
