Skip to comments.Bozell Column: Our 'Intolerance Festival'
Posted on 09/15/2009 4:33:42 PM PDT by Justaham
Its very easy to be outraged by the way our "objective" media greeted the massive September 12 rally against Big Government in Washington and across the country. They treated it as a menacing surge of white anger, meanness, and racism. But all the media bias against this rally clearly illustrates one nagging truth for media liberals: they really dont think conservatives should be allowed to protest. Its somehow like a copyright violation.
On Monday nights "Countdown," MSNBCs David Shuster found the protest united "in apparent hatred of the current president, Barack Obama." It was undemocratic, a sign of people not accepting election results, and Shuster even suggested Sen. Jim DeMints speech at the rally signaled he favored a "military coup." The unglued anchorman also dismissed the crowd as "white, whiter, and whitest," all attending an "intolerance festival."

We don’t have to expose the MSM as liberal asses they are. They are doing it to themselves.
This event and the subsequent coverage thereof should end that issue once and for all.
Fortunatly this media wasn’t around in 1776.
Shuster probably doesn’t hate whites, or Republicans, either, for that matter.
This is just more of the common trait of the self-identified “intelligentsia”: they demonstrate their superiority, their transcendent morality, and their even-handedness by attacking their own.
It has nothing whatever to do with who is right or wrong; it has everything to do with showing everybody how smart you are.
Charlie Gibson did a wonderful job of proving your point this morning on talk radio.
I have listened at length to these “enlightened types” and while their selfrightousness is obviously on display,it often goes beyond that,almost a modern cult of self flagellation,they hate their own for its past “sins”.
This will help them even more than their attacks on the people attending the town halls. s/ They are going to have a hard time controlling all the backfires they are setting.
