The Left used to congratulate itself on being the "Free Speech Movement" and celebrate the rebellious anarchists who used obscene words and forced sexually graphic images and conversations into the public square. Conservatives were the ones who insisted on decency in the public discourse, and demanded regulation, both within the private sector as well as from the federal government, to protect the public from that obscenity.

But now, as the world turns upside down on sexuality and gender, leftists are becoming the ones who censor and fine. Instead of a Hays Code for decency, there's a Gays Code. Breaking the new language rules of the LGBT lobby can now cost you very dearly. And literally.

The New York Times proclaimed the results of their six-week “investigation” on the front page of the Sunday paper. They discovered that Donald Trump is kind of sleazy around women. They want us to know this right now – not six months ago – when it’s clear he’s the Republican nominee against Mrs. Bill Clinton.

No Republican is surprised. Their shameless partisanship knows no bounds.

“Like the amputated limb felt long after it has been cut off, I miss Trayvon Martin,” the famous orator said. Who would utter such an elaborate expression of white guilt? Try star PBS filmmaker Ken Burns, gushing his way through a government-funded honor: the “Jefferson Lecture,” the “nation’s highest honor for intellectual achievement” awarded by Obama’s National Endowment for the Humanities.

One certainly hopes Mr. Burns will assuage his amputation-level grief by sending the entirety of the NEH’s $10,000 cash prize for this lecture to Trayvon’s mother.

Barack Obama’s political appointees are not only celebrated by the media as the best and brightest America has to offer. They are promoted as so bright they are allowed to boast about how they masterfully manipulate the press, like sculpting a smelly can of journalistic Play-Doh.

The New York Times Magazine wrote a long profile of Obama’s foreign-policy communications whiz Ben Rhodes, lauded as “the master shaper and retailer of Obama's foreign-policy narratives, at a time when the killer wave of social media has washed away the sand castles of the traditional press.”

The White House Correspondents Association throws an enormous annual dinner that’s a pillar of the Washington power-elite scene. This year they picked Stephen Colbert’s Comedy Central replacement, Larry Wilmore. He was seriously unfunny, and he knew it. But the media coverage made it clear that Wilmore suffered badly in comparison – not to Colbert, but to his opening act, “comedian-in-chief” Barack Obama.

Start with who was awarded the comedy soundbites. On the morning, evening, and Sunday shows on ABC, CBS, and NBC, we counted 35 Obama jokes replayed. Wilmore had two soundbites – and one of them wasn’t a joke...it was a tribute to Obama.

Politico’s bi-monthly magazine published their third annual “Media Issue,” complete with polls of reporters – who are perhaps the most resistant to being polled, fearing how they might reveal which viewpoint is ideologically dominant in the press.

But the media’s true tilt might be implied from the question “Knowing what you know now, who do think will be the next president?” It wasn’t close. Among campaign reporters, 86 percent said Hillary, and 10 percent Trump (three percent said Sanders). Among the White House reporters, 88 percent picked Hillary, and 11 percent said Trump.

The liberal opinion site that calls itself “PolitiFact” insists it’s just a “fact-checking” website. When choosing to assess whether a politician’s claim is true or false, their “About Us” page says they ask “Is the statement rooted in a fact that is verifiable? We don’t check opinions, and we recognize that in the world of speechmaking and political rhetoric, there is license for hyperbole.”   

With rare genetic exceptions, when it comes to humans, there is probably not a fact more verifiable than one’s gender. But guess what? On April 26, the website Mediaite carried the eye-grabbing headline: “PolitiFact Rules It’s Now Objectively False to Call Transgender Women Men.”

At the very end of the April 16 Saturday Night Live, the NBC skit show mocked the Christian movie God’s Not Dead 2, which like its predecessor explores how modern American culture denies the existence of God, especially in our classrooms. It did so by mocking God Himself.

NBC mocked the idea that Christians are being denied religious freedom. Cast member Vanessa Bayer played a baker who refuses to bake a wedding cake for two gay men, proclaiming “I want to deny basic goods and services to gay people.” An ACLU lawyer for the gay couple takes her to court to force her to say "God is gay." In her triumphant moment in court, she instead yells out "God... is a boob man!"

HBO should stand for History Bungling Office. Over and over again, they have abused their disclaimer that “This film is a fact-based dramatization.” They re-litigated Al Gore’s 2000  “victory” in Recount. They viciously cartooned Sarah Palin’s vice-presidential candidacy in Game Change. Now they’re smearing Clarence Thomas as a pervert and painting Anita Hill as a saint of sexual harassment in Confirmation.

The makers of this “fact-based” movie claim it’s balanced. Baloney. The advertisements give away the game. Over the face of actress (and executive producer) Kerry Washington playing St. Anita are the words “It only takes one voice to change history.”

If the conventional wisdom had ruled in this election cycle, America’s most prominent journalists would have been painted the traditional portrait. Hillary Clinton and the Democrats warmly reminded the country of her husband’s allegedly centrist presidency. Conversely, whoever the Republicans nominated would be declared either (a) too conservative to win or (b) ruined by trying to placate those crazy Tea Party people who inevitably make the moderates unelectable.

Hillary’s long and frustrating march to put away her socialist competitor Bernie Sanders has disrupted the narrative. She cannot package herself as centrist. The media elite will admit Sanders has dragged her to the left. But that doesn’t mean her increasing leftism could damage the Democrats with independent voters.

Back in the 1980s, Bruce Springsteen and other rock stars formed Artists United Against Apartheid and performed a song proclaiming “I ain’t gonna play Sun City,” referencing a resort in South Africa. The song mocked the Reagan administration’s “constructive engagement” policy in South Africa, but rock stars routinely performed in the totalitarian Soviet Union, believing that was incredibly constructive.

Today, Springsteen and other Artists of Conscience have a burning new cause of injustice. “Transgender women” with male anatomy must be allowed to celebrate their chosen identity in the girls’ bathroom. The Left has gone berserk.

Now that the Republican campaign looks like it will last until a contested convention in Cleveland, Donald Trump and his supporters assert the whole system looks undemocratic.

But if democracy was organized to give everyone a fair and equal shot to impress the voters based on their knowledge and experience, then this system has been rigged for Donald Trump for the last nine months. The media - not just the liberal media, but some "conservative" media, too - have been the gale-force wind beneath Trump's wings.

HBO shocked the world on April 4 by unveiling a 100-minute documentary honoring the legacy and legislative career of Sen. Jesse Helms.

Delayed April Fool’s. No, instead, they did feature Senator Helms – as a villain to kick off a 100-minute documentary deeply honoring the life and art of Robert Mapplethorpe, the infamous anti-Christian, penis-obsessed purveyor of sadomasochistic black-and-white photography. This defines the ideological and anti-religious sensibilities of HBO.

Less than a year ago, ABC’s George Stephanopoulos admitted to Politico that he had made $75,000 in undisclosed contributions to the charitable foundation-slash-campaign operation of his former employers Bill and Hillary Clinton. He personally pledged he wouldn’t moderate a Republican primary debate this year. But ABC News issued a statement of support for Stephanopoulos and insisted it “would take no punitive action against him."

It’s bad enough that ABC never even considered removing this self-evident Clinton loyalist from its “objective” political coverage. They even allow him to conduct softball interviews with Hillary Clinton, and won’t even insist on reminding viewers of his substantial financial support of the woman he’s interviewing.

Actress Susan Sarandon embodies the definitive caricature of the raving socialist so brimming with “compassion” and with an estimated net worth of $50 million. She infuriated liberals by telling MSNBC host Chris Hayes on March 28 that she can only envision Bernie Sanders for president: “I really want to be on the right side of history and this is a shot we're not going to have in my lifetime to have a candidate that's so morally consistent,” while Hillary Clinton is a stalking horse for Wall Street or “fracking or Monsanto.”

She wouldn’t relent and say she’d vote for Hillary instead of Trump: “Some people feel Donald Trump will bring the revolution immediately if he gets in then things will really, you know, explode.”

The National Enquirer’s brand in journalism is synonymous with factually unsupported drivel of the lowest kind. It is a sacred truth that no responsible journalist should produce the kind of garbage found in this tabloid. 
 
But somehow it’s perfectly appropriate for the same responsible journalists to report the sleaze, over and over, emphasizing, of course, that the source is that awful National Enquirer.

To Catholics, the week before Easter is “Holy Week,” a time to prepare for the church’s highlight of the year, celebrating the resurrection of Jesus. To Hollywood, it is a time to flog the Catholic Church with vicious portrayals of corruption and hypocrisy.

Hollywood insists it's product reflects a market demand. There is no market demand for this. It is Hollywood, and only Hollywood, that wishes to celebrate its bigotry toward Catholics.

The smoke hadn’t cleared from the airport in Brussels and already the press was issuing its typical lament: This will only stoke Europe’s “right wing” and spread “rampant Islamophobia.”

NBC’s Richard Engel complained on the “Today” program that “We're already seeing the rise of the right wing. We're already seeing rise of hate attacks, where people will use the kind of terrorist attacks, these kind of incidents, to vilify all of the Muslim community. Which, of course, only makes the situation worse. Because then people feel isolated, ostracized, ghettoized, and they retreat into their own communities.”

No one doubts that the “fake news” shows on Comedy Central are propaganda organs for liberalism. NPR and MSNBC hosts have swooned over the soothing satirical nightcaps for the snarky liberal. Apparently, that genre isn’t enough. Now the channel’s situation comedies are pushing the Democrats.

In the March 16 episode of the millennial-female sitcom “Broad City,” the buffoonish main character (played by Ilana Glazer) volunteers for the Hillary for President campaign – so enthusiastically she put “Rodham” in her name, as in “Ilana Rodham Wexler.”

In the liberal lexicon, “backlash” is a word that only describes conservatives getting what’s coming to them. But as MSNBC reduces its number of shows and time slots for race-obsessed black hosts, this was bound to happen. The hashtag as the Left began to devour itself was “#MSNBCSoWhite.”

When MSNBC hired leftist hosts who were fixated on race, it was only natural that MSNBC would be trashed as "going white” when the reality of MSNBC’s terrible ratings for hosting seminars of academics about how badly America stinks cost Comcast some serious cash.
