If you are among those who are awake and paying attention (and I assume this is the vast majority of RNL readers), no doubt you’ve heard a Leftist crying about how the right wants to censor or silence their voice. But have you ever noticed that, when it comes to the part that really matters – actions, not words – it is almost always the Left who tries to use force of some kind to silence their opposition? And do you ever notice the smug, arrogant and condescending air these people have about them in just assuming that theirs – a numerically minority voice – is somehow superior to the opinions of the masses and, therefore, should be allowed to trample the free speech rights of others?
Well, silencing the opposition is what these three stories are all about – up to and including the use of govt. regulation and laws to eliminate an entire business that is in competition with them. I just thought I’d bring them to your attention because, unless you watch FOX News, you’re not likely to see them. And even if you do watch FOX News, there are stories you will miss unless you also include the “new media” in your daily routine:
In this story, Pelosi is trying to invoke her supposed faith as a barrier to more questioning. Not only that, but she is assuming to be superior to the Pope in that she has turned the Church’s doctrine on its head in the effort to shut down that questioning.
This story is about the true feelings and opinions of the vast majority of those in the “main stream” (i.e. legacy) media who call themselves “journalists.” In it, we find that many of these “journalists” honestly believe and openly called for the government to forcibly shut down their opposition, including all of FOX News (among themselves, that is – never publicly). You should watch the video clip in this story.
[NOTE: Hannity claims “we” broke several stories, including the Black Liberation Theology story. In reality, that story came to FOX via Bill O’Reilly, who in turn got it from his contacts in the new media. This is just another example of the establishment media trying to take credit for the great work being done by the new media.]
And this story is a perfect illustration of the claim being made in the last story. It shows one of these self-appointed, elitist “journalists” losing her temper, forgetting she is on the air and telling another person to shut up and mind his place. What we should note is that she not only thinks she has the authority to tell him to silence his voice, but that she has the authority to tell him what his “role” is in society and the media.
Note also that she is not alone in this: often times, when the liberal in any debate is losing and knows it, they will reveal their true colors. Obama has even done this on several occasions. Which leads to something else we can learn from this: if a person has to hide who they really are and what they really believe from the public, they should not be considered a “good” person, nor should they ever be considered for public office. In both cases, they have demonstrated – through their actions – that they will lie and, therefore, cannot and should not be trusted.
