Skip to comments.The Biker and the Lion (A lesson in politics)

A Harley biker is riding by the zoo in Washington, DC when he sees a little girl leaning into the lion's cage. Suddenly, the lion grabs her by the cuff of her jacket and tries to pull her inside to slaughter her, under the eyes of her screaming parents.
The biker jumps off his Harley, runs to the cage and hits the lion square on the nose with a powerful punch. Whimpering from the pain the lion jumps back letting go of the girl, and the biker brings her to her terrified parents, who thank him endlessly. A reporter has watched the whole event.
The reporter addressing the Harley rider says, 'Sir, this was the most gallant and brave thing I've seen a man do in my whole life.'
The Harley rider replies, 'Why, it was nothing, really, the lion was behind bars. I just saw this little kid in danger and acted as I felt right.'
The reporter says, 'Well, I'll make sure this won't go unnoticed. I'm a journalist, you know, and tomorrow's paper will have this story on the front page. So, what do you do for a living and what political affiliation do you have?'
The biker replies, 'I'm a U.S.Marine and a Republican.' The journalist leaves.
The following morning the biker buys the paper to see if it indeed brings news of his actions, and reads, on the front page:
U.S.MARINE-BIKER ASSAULTS AFRICAN IMMIGRANT AND STEALS HIS LUNCH
That pretty much sums up the liberal news media's approach to the news these days.
I’d say that certainly does sum up the liberal MSM alright.
MSM doesn’t even get the truth as close as the journalist in the story.
Truth leaves Freepers speechless.
They forgot “unfairly incarcerated”
Good one. Now that you’ve told us this true-life story, can you give us a joke?
I read this as I was listening to Harry Reid announce that they socialists have reached an agreement on a health bill.
As he spins his lies, I can’t help but think about how the state run media has helped to get us here to this point: the end of democracy and capitalism in America.
Ok. A llama walks into a bar and orders a drink. The bartender says “We don’t get many llamas in here!’’. The llama say’s “Yeah, and at these prices you won’t get many more’’. Ok, so it’s ‘’llame but we’re talking llamas here.:-)
