As an Independent who was once a Democrat, although never a liberal, I often wonder why Republicans and Conservatives aren’t more upset about how badly they are treated in this country.
The President of the United States, who is supposed to represent ALL the people in this country seldom misses a chance to denigrate citizens that don’t agree with him. He makes fun of people that don’t accept his view of life or his politics. He lies about their motives. He sits in the highest office in the land and insults 1/2 of the citizens of this country while he and his wife still whine like victims.
POTUS and FLOTUS have achieved more than most people can ever hope for and yet they are not satisfied. Are we somehow to blame for their success? Do we not fund, with taxpayer dollars, enough multimillion dollar vacations? What more do they want from us? Evidently everything is not enough.
The media is anti Republicans/Conservatives. It lies about them, it accuses them of horrible things and it treats them like an enemy. Terrorists can expect, and receive, more positive press than Republicans/Conservatives.
To listen to the liberal media, and some of the conservative media you would think Ted Cruz was worse than a terrorist in a suicide vest. The hate from the left and much of the right was palpable. Ted Cruz supporters were barely mentioned while Dimwit Donnie and the Trumpanzees coverage was YUGE! That tells me something about Ted Cruz and a whole lot more about his enemies. But Cruz supporters sat in front of their sets and watched channels that insulted and lied about him. They watched those channels every night. Some were even influenced by the lies.
Every day and night, in spite of all the lies to them and about them Republicans/Conservatives turn on their television sets and watch the very people that treat them and all they value so shamefully. They sit and listen as lies are told about them and the people they support and the very lives they lead. They help the ratings of those that malign them. WTH?
If you like getting kicked this may be your idea of a good time. If not, why are you there?
Why does any Republican/Conservative ever watch CBS, NBC or ABC? Their bias is so obvious that only a fool can’t see it. And yet there they sit, Ma and Pa Republican and watch while everything they support or believe is smeared and denigrated. And that doesn’t even address the lies. They must like getting treated like dirt or else why would they watch this dreck?
Few Republicans/Conservatives watch MSNBC, which is an infamous liberal channel. Many that do watch do it so they can repeat whatever offensive lies or distortions the liberal liars are telling on that particular day. Watch to be outraged? Not my idea of a good time. My take on MSNBC is that at least they don’t pretend to be anything but what they are – a liberal channel. ABC, NBC and CBS aren’t that honest.
CNN isn’t much better although the addition of Jake Tapper has given them some credibility. I suspect in the long run the station and it’s bias will do more to bring him down than he will be able to do to bring them up. One little honest light in all that darkness just isn’t enough.
Most people will tell you that media is dishonest. They have gone from once being a well respected profession to one that is not. They’ve earned every bit of that disrespect. Lie by lie, spin by spin and all the times they simply didn’t report something if it didn’t fit into a liberal agenda. I suspect they lie to themselves too lest they not be able to look in a mirror or sleep at night knowing what they have become. Or perhaps when you have become that dishonest your conscience doesn’t bother you at all anymore.
I do not watch MSM news programs of any kind. Ever!
Although some of my favorite entertainment programs are on CBS I never watch any news from their liberal liars. It would gag me to listen to one word coming from a scumbag like Scot Pelley’s mouth. He denigrates all I believe in. He praises all I hate. Why on earth would I watch him? I’m not a masochist.
If our values are so unimportant to us, if we care so little about being smeared and maligned and lied to and about then it doesn’t’ matter if we watch these evil people. If we do care then we are doing ourselves and everything we believe a serious disservice by allowing them into our lives and into our living rooms. We thank them for the disrespect by helping raise their ratings. Why do people do that?
Oh well, just another of the many things that mystifies me.
