Forget 1776 and all that: The New York Times wants to "reframe" your benighted understanding of the nation's founding, which they date to 1619, when the original sin of slavery first began to spread, as the first Africans were brought to North America as slaves. This year marks the 400th anniversary of that event, and the Times is primed to put slavery in the center of the American story, and redefine capitalism as slavery while they’re at it. The first salvo came in the special edition of the Sunday Magazine, stuffed with left-wing opinions, from the economy to junk food to medical care to the political system and traffic jams in Atlanta, with verything tied back to slavery.
Following Face the Nation host Margaret Brennan’s interview with self-described Democratic socialist Bernie Sanders, New York Times columnist and CBS News political analyst Jamelle Bouie dismissed the idea that Sanders wants to radically transform America into a socialist country before delivering a public service announcement on behalf of a “very, very robust welfare state.”
Two years after he compared President Trump’s victory to the defeat of Civil War Reconstruction, CBS News contributor and Slate columnist Jamelle Bouie was back on the eyeball network to offer takes on the 2018 midterms, most notably insinuating that the victories of Republicans in states like Florida and Georgia weren’t exactly legit because of — wait for it — “voter suppression.”
If you forget that Harvey Weinstein sexual harassed women, he’s actually a pretty decent guy, and if you ignore enough facts, you’ll believe liberals always put morals above politics … unlike those decadent conservatives.
At this point, lefties pretty much need oven mitts to handle their overused Race Card.That thing’s been pushed to the limit like an ‘83 Yugo trying to reach highway cruising speed. The latest play is on immigration and voting.
As has been stated previously, the liberal media made total fools out of themselves last Wednesday night when they rushed to claim President Trump had slammed all immigrants as “animals.” And when the video of the full context came out, nearly all of them issued corrections and retractions. Yet despite the media’s own retractions, panelists on CBS’s Face the Nation and CNN’s Reliable Sources thought it was fair to do that to the President given his past comments about immigrants.
On CBS’s Face the Nation, moderator John Dickerson asked his political roundtable if there were any stories they felt were not getting enough news coverage. Predictably, the liberal journalists on the panel fretted that Republican efforts on the state level to “ban abortion” and engage in “voter suppression” were happening “completely under the radar.”
The elite have their versions of ambulance chasers. In the wake of a national tragedy, the insensitive calls from wealthy celebrities and journalists to join the bandwagon of liberal political activism showcases their complete lack of empathy.
Liberals in the media and Hollywood were outraged after former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer made a guest appearance on stage to poke fun at himself at the Emmy Awards in Los Angeles, September 17. Offended journalists from several major media outlets took to Twitter to complain that Spicer’s appearance wasn’t funny in the slightest, but it “normalized” him as a “liar.”
Many elected Republican officials including the President have repeatedly condemned the white supremacists and Neo-Nazis that turned up in Charlottesville, VA. But that hasn’t stopped the liberal media from tagging the whole party and conservative movement as unrepentant racists. The following is a collection of the most egregious attacks on Republicans (so far) in the week following the Charlottesville tragedy.
In the aftermath of the Charlottesville attack, two of the Big Three Networks (ABC and NBC) were quick to cast blame on President Trump for the violence and the lives lost on Sunday. To round out the Big Three, CBS brought up the rear during Face the Nation where guest Jamelle Bouie argued that if one was looking for the “roots” of the attack, “you don’t have to look very far from the White House.”
To vociferously oppose MS-13 is to, in so many words, descend from the rhetorical lineage of lynch-mob sympathizers in the Jim Crow south. So says Slate’s Jamelle Bouie in his Thursday piece “Make America Afraid Again”:
