"ALL THE BOLSHEVIKS' CHILDREN" (ABC)
By: Selwyn Duke
It wasnt just that
ABCs Brian Ross was wrong in suggesting
that the Jim Holmes he found on a Tea Party website was the same man who
committed the heinous crime in Aurora, Colorado. Its
that his comment was indicative of stupidity and corruption.
Ross had thought for a moment and possessed a grasp of reality, he wouldve realized
that Jim Holmes is a common name belonging to many hundreds of men throughout
the nation. If he had some integrity and a
desire to be even-handed, he would have vetted the information more before airing
itjust as he would have if at issue had been an alleged left-wing association.
imagine if someone appeared on TV shortly after the Aurora tragedy and stated, not just to
provide biographical info but with an ominous implication, We now know that Holmes
attended UC Riverside
Ill be the first to say that modern academia does teach insanity; nonetheless, since
this school isnt known to orchestrate terrorist acts, it wouldnt leap to mind
to implicate it in Holmess atrocity. The
fact is that any given person will have had a number of associations in his life, and few,
if any, will bear relevance to a crime he may commit.
there can be only two reasons why ABC would mention a possible Holmes/Tea Party (TP)
association: either its people want to demonize conservatives every chance they get, or
they think traditionalist thought constitutes a pathology.
It turns out that Effluent Stream Media leftists are deeply involved in
doing the former and generally believe the latter.
you see, my last line contains what is called a correct profile. Because it happens to be true. On the other hand, if leftists were intellectually
honest, theyd accept that the TP has been remarkably civilized. Unlike Only Whining Socialists (OWS), its events
arent marked by sexual abuse, the occasional rape, violence, vandalism and slovenly,
anti-social behavior. Rather, TP attendees
protest peacefully, abide by the law, listen to speeches and then go home, leaving the
site behind them clean and tidy. Its the
difference between sane citizens and those who mistake police cars for toilet bowls.
fact, ABC hewed so closely to the leftist profile its uncanny. Liberals have been trying for ages to get the goods
on the TP, but the most their sleuthing has uncovered is an allegation that a black
politician was targeted by one or two TP attendees with a racial epithet that, curiously,
wasnt caught on audio or video despite todays ubiquity of electronic devices. And it must be frustrating. That darn reality just refuses to conform to leftist
And sometimes prejudices
persecute those who promote them. Ross might
have learned this through his corrupted act, if liberals were receptive to reality and
could learn anything contrary to their deified feelings.
Note that corrupted isnt quite the same as
corrupt, even though many leftists are both.
When we say a computer file is corrupted, all thats being recognized is that
its degraded and cannot function properly. And
to whatever extent liberals are willfully corrupt, they are certainly corrupted. They cannot, and do not, function properly.
is, by the way, why ex-newsman Dan Rathers career was scuttled (far too late)
through an act that was somewhat reminiscent of Rosss.
When Rather peddled
documents purporting to show that George W. Bush shirked his military duties, he
didnt know they were forged. They did,
however, align with his prejudices. Why,
thats exactly how these conservatives are! This
has to be true; it makes sense. But only
when youre senseless. Just as with Ross,
if a leftist person or entity stood to be impugned through the reportage, Rather would
have moved mountains to discover if the documents were authentic; that is, if he would
have considered doing the story at all. Instead,
after a career running with the bulls of his own bovine excrement, he finally suffered a
trampling of his own design.
Ill be blunt. As is often the case, when
leftists accuse conservatives of failings, it is projection. Traditionalist thought is not
unthought is a pathology.
a severe one that destroys everything it touches.
Peter Schweizer reported
in his piece Don't listen to the liberalsRight-wingers really are nicer
people, latest research shows, studies have borne out what Ive always known:
Liberals are cheap, ungenerous, uncharitable, unloving, self-centered, envious, greedy and
covetous. Theyre less likely than
conservatives to devote time to ailing or needy loved ones, and they even hug their
children less. And this reflects one reason
why they support big government: they assuage their consciences by outsourcing their
charity. Ill add to this that
theyre lustful, prideful, wrathful, often slothful and, if Michael Moore is any
indication, gluttonous as well. In a word,
they are the Seven Deadly Sins incarnate.
for ABC, since news obviously isnt its bag, I have a programming suggestion. It could replace a certain long-running but
recently cancelled soap opera its famous for with something that can be called
All the Bolsheviks Children. This
could break new ground and help rebuild ABCs reputation for honesty, as it would be
the most self-revelatory reality show in history.
