The Triumph of the Treasonous Liberal Media
January 19 20007 | jveritas

Posted on 01/19/2007 7:21:33 AM PST by jveritas

In the last 2 years the treasonous liberal media has perfected the art of controlling the knee jerk conservatives in even more efficient way than they control their own left wing lunatic base. It is shocking to see the large number of conservatives who fell pray to the lies and distortions of the liberal media. The liberal media succeeded through lies and distortions and incredible gullibility by many conservatives to divide the conservative base, and drew a wedge between many of them and the President as well between them and the Republican Party.

Many times during the day, we see instant knee jerk reactions by people on this forum, on other conservative forums, on radio talk shows stupidly reacting to a misleading title, or a distorted article printed by the liberal press or broadcasted on liberal news networks. The knee jerk conservatives get all riled up against the President or the Republican party because they constantly believe and without any rational thought the lies that are written in the New York Times, the Washington Post, AP etc… or broadcasted on CBS, CNN, NBC, ABC, MSNBC etc…

The irony is that those same knee jerk conservatives have this condescending attitude and call the voters the “Sheeple” because in their mind the voters believe everything the liberal media tell them, when in reality it them who do believe the lies of the liberal media. There is no danger when liberals believe their own media because it is expected, but it is very dangerous for conservatives to fall for these lies because it will divide our base.

So yes, the liberal treasonous media has been very triumphant in the last 2 years, they mastered the tactics of dividing conservatives among themselves and rallying some against President Bush and the Republican party, this "some" were stupid enough to stay home in the last elections and caused the Republicans to lose Congress.

WAKE UP.

Lesson: Don't blame the base for the party leaderships' shortcomings.

Maybe not - but we can certainly blame the "base" for sitting out the 2006 election and allowing the dems to seize control of Congress and putting Nazi Lugosi 2nd in line for the White House.

What principles? staying home and help electing left wing communist liberals? Please spare me the lessons of principles.

Do you disagree that the best way for Republicans to win is to start acting like conservatives again?

If you want to win elections, you don't browbeat people into voting for you. That's the Democrats' way. You give them a reason to vote FOR you. That was the genius of the Contract with America. The Republican base wants their candidates to be conservative--small government, pro-traditional values, strong on defense, and stampers out of corruption.

When a party utterly fails to come through on three out of the four issues its supporters hold dear, it's a recipe for disaster. That's what we saw in '06. We'll see it again in '08 unless the RNC leadership wises up.

It's up to the Party to give the people a reason to come out and vote FOR them--aside from "Boo! The Democrats!" When the party fails to uphold the principles that got them into power in the first place, they should expect to lose.

I expected them to lose as early as January 2004 when Arlen Specter was crowing about how he was going to "moderate" the GOP as chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee. From that point on, they've done few things to placate the base and MANY things to irritate the base further. I'm convinced we need a wholesale leadership change at RNC.

Newt for RNC Chair!!!

"It appears that the Republicans have lost their advantage on the philosophical issue of the size of government. Among the people who voted in this past election, 59% favor a smaller government with fewer services, and only 28% favor a larger government with many services. Among those who voted for a Republican for Congress, they favor smaller government by a 5-to-1 margin. However, the plurality of voters who voted Democratic also supports smaller government. In the past, these voters wouldn’t consider the Democratic Party an option."

Kind of looks to me like it was the squishy middle that elected Democrats, not conservatives nearly all of whom voted R.

There was NEVER any reason to turn on the President and the GOP. National survival dictates supporting them.

Suicidally minded nitwits are not political geniuses.

Continuation of the Iraq war to victory is all the reason any right-minded patriot needed to vote GOP. Those who do not understand this can never help conservativism and never will.

And the "base" did not turn on the party but the unrelenting criticism AMPLIFIED by the Treason Media turned off the moderates and Independents. We do not live in an era where criticism of the Party or its leadership can be left at that because the Treason Media will not allow it. Rather it is then used to cut the throats of Republicans.

I don't see how Republicans EVER get elected ANYWHERE given the Treason Media control of the public mind including conservatives. Foley is a perfect example of a NOTHING being created and turned into something huge. Nothing wrong was done (except by the RATS), no crimes were broken, no promises unfulfilled. It was a total nothing in fact but exploded into a huge story by the hammering of the Treason Media.

Meanwhile HUGE stories which would help the GOP and President are suppressed, distorted into their opposite or ignored through minimal coveraga.

Actually I don't think the base refused to vote GOP but the defection of moderate democrats and Independents because they were affected by the criticism of the GOP and disillusioned as to its ability to get the job done.

The squishy middle and the hopelessly muddled put the Party of Treason in power again.

Clearly it was not the conservatives who refused to vote for Allen or Santorum or Talent or Burns. These were among the strongest conservative voices in the Senate and future leaders. Conservatives were happy with them.

There you go--proving my point.
The Dems knew more about it than the Reps did and held it for release until after Foley could not be replaced on the ballot.
In not a single instance was it shown that Foley made an improper advance to a minor.
All the salacious stuff which the Reps didn't have was to adults, themselves homosexuals and folks perfectly capable of pushing the delete button if they didn't wish to continue the communications.

With what Hastert knew there was nothing that could be done. There simply was no other way to deal with this --a facially innocent email to a former page whose parents wanted no further investigation--without headlines accusing the Republicans of homophobia.

You were had.

That ought to be enough - if you don't think so then you have no right to complain about what the democrats do (which will be to destroy our nation).

Anyone who had a hand in allowing the dems to take control and do that is to blame - using the excuse that the GOP is not far enough right is not a valid reason to hand the fate of the country over to the treasonous democrats.

Which would you rather have - someone in power who agrees with 60% of what you believe in or someone in power who agrees with 5% of what you believe in?

With G. W. Bush, we did indeed have a case where I agreed with about 60% of what he stood for. I was happy to work for him, send him $$, and vote for him. With Rudy McRomney, I'm looking at about 20% tops.

Plus, two out of the three are pro-baby-killing and all three are pro-pretend-marriage. Those are litmus test issues that I won't turn my back on under any circumstances.
