Skip to comments.CNN Analyst Avlon: CPAC's 'Saving Freedom' Theme 'A Little Extreme'

AVLON: Well, the theme of this conference, below the podium and in the seminar rooms, is 'saving freedom,' and that's certainly how the participants view this. They believe themselves to be saving freedom, fighting against socialism...while they can build a bridge to independents on the issue of fiscal conservatism...if you try to extend that and then say it's a fight against socialism, which is the general consensus right now, that seems like a bridge too far. This is a group of people, when they say 'saving freedom,' they're confusing, at heart, losing an election with living under tyranny. That's a message that strikes a lot of independents as a little extreme.
They squeal the most when we’re winning. LOL
We will do just that CNN. And you ain’t gonna like the outcome. I doubt you will around to enjoy it though.
Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha CNN what a joke!!!
Ummmm..we are winning the elections right now..we have won three straight states that 0bama won by wide margins in 2008.
And we ARE living under an 0bama socialist tyrannical regime.
Democrats’ “We’re Patriots, Too” theme a little extreme.
I’ve met John Avlon. In April 2009 he was shocked at my suggestion that Obama is a Communist.
Months later, what do we learn? Obama was quietly HIRING AVOWED COMMUNISTS all along.
Anita Dunn - avowed Maoist.
Ron Bloom - avowed Maoist.
Van Jones - avowed Communist.
Sorry, John, we have them on VIDEOTAPE praising MAO and COMMUNISM.
Don’t even get me started on Cass Sunstein, Zeke Emanuel and John Holdren.
Obama ENDED the FBI background checks for vetting White House personnel. He did this to allow the hiring of the Communists listed above.
Avlon won’t acknowledge any danger until “Obama is stuffing Jews in ovens.” According to self-styled moderates, any event that falls short of a “second Holocaust” is “no cause for alarm.”
After meeting Avlon (and a parade of mini-Avlons) I wrote the following two columns, exploring how Obama compares to another National Socialist, Adolf Hitler:
“This is a group of people, when they say ‘saving freedom,’ they’re confusing, at heart, losing an election with living under tyranny.”
Winning an election is not equal to becoming an emperor. Not representing the will of the people and doing what you want regardless of how they feel IS TYRANNY.
To paraphrase what Ann Coulter said in response to a question about The New York Times...that’s okay, nobody watches CNN anyway.
Avlon’s position, both the time I met him, and the following 2 times I’ve seen him on TV, is always the same:
“Allow your freedom to be taken from you by these so-called Socialists, THEN if it gets bad enough and approaches Nazi Germany or Cuba, your argument may hold water.”
No thanks, John. We’re not waiting until the USA is destroyed before we present our side of the argument for your approval.
If Avlon cannot recognize a steady march toward Socialism/Communism led by Obama/Reid/Pelosi, then what good is he?
And why is he in the media business? Perhaps because the MSM’s job is telling us “Don’t worry, we’re just going to take THIS PART of your freedom, then we promise we’ll stop right there.”
I imagine that the bozos at CNN would find freedom “a little extreme”. Most communists do.
He’s built his career on being an independent and moderate, so he’s got to tsk-tsk the right, no matter their positions or the situation in the country. Like most ‘moderates’, he’s defined himself as being by others.
I would like just ONE of these socialist douchebags to read the dictionary definition of “Socialism” and then tell the American people on live television how that does NOT fit with what the socialists in congress are doing to us.
*being defined by others*
This is a recurrent sophomoric taunt from the left since Nov 2008, "We won, nah, nah, you stink, nah, nah". Obama does it often also..."Well I did win the election". They are bad winners and losers. But I don't waste all that much time analysing drivel from radical lesbian tv commentators, radical racist blacks or effeminate spittle spewing East Coast idiots in the MSM. They say these things to get a rise out of you and I. Ignore their taunts and insults, just out hustle , out work and out vote them. Remember how good it felt when Scott Brown won, let's make that happen all over.
“But I don’t waste all that much time analysing drivel from radical lesbian tv commentators, radical racist blacks or effeminate spittle spewing East Coast idiots in the MSM.”
The funny thing is, I knew exactly who you were talking about! Even without names. ;)
More and more people realize what’s at stake. The liberty we have is unprecedented, in an organized affluent society. Once it’s gone, it’s gone.
