Left-wing newspapers certainly aren’t the defenders of free expression they used to be. Canada-based journalist Tracey Linderman filed a fear-mongering report for the U.K.’s Guardian newspaper Tuesday, entitled, “Activists condemn Canadian cinema chain for screening anti-abortion film: Cineplex Entertainment criticized for screening Unplanned, which is said to promote falsehoods about reproductive health.”
Left-wing Guardian columnist George Monbiot is often unhinged on climate issues. Now he’s blasted Royal Dutch Shell for extracting oil and gas that “will destroy our lives” and calling it a “planetary death machine.” Of course, his oil is evil attitude ignored all that the form of energy did to enable modern civilization’s existence and improve human life.
What is the ideal American family? Is it a loving mother and father with happy children living on their own property with a white picket fence? Nope, according to The Guardian, it’s a gender queer family of clown nuns.
This past May, NPR released a guideline for the terminology that should be used in regards to the abortion debate. The guideline stated, “Babies are not babies until they are born” and abortion clinics are “health clinics.” And war is peace and freedom is slavery and ignorance is strength -- just like Orwell said. This morning, following NPR’s lead, The Guardian announced that it will no longer call the Georgia abortion bill “the heartbeat bill” because it is “not medically accurate.” It will now be called “ the six week abortion ban.”
On Wednesday, The Huffington Post released an exclusive interview with Global Teacher Prize finalist Andrew Moffat to discuss his “No Outsider” teaching program in the U.K. that has been protested by many angry, religious parents, particularly from the Muslim community. The honest reporters at HuffPost U.K. framed Moffat’s program as promoting “equality across all sections of society” and teaching children about “diversity and LGBTQ rights,” with no regards to parents’ protests.
Mark Levin's book Unfreedom of the Press drew another hostile book review, this time from the leftist British newspaper The Guardian. The headline on Lloyd Green's review was "Mark Levin's Trumpist take on the first amendment...The passionate pro-Trump convert’s attack on the mainstream media occasionally sounds like ‘fake news’ itself." And yet in his very next book review, Mr. Green was fulsomely praising an actual fake-news purveyor, Michael Wolff.
Unlikely as it seems, during his trip to the United Kingdom, President Trump was greeted by a media establishment that is even more hostile than the one he'd left back home. Throughout the state visit, prominent UK news outlets published a litany of articles mocking the U.S. President and boosting his detractors.
Just when you think lefty political elites couldn’t get more detached from reality, they take a trip to Neverland. According to The Guardian, the U.N. Deputy High Commissioner for Human Rights Kate Gilmore believes that the “US policy on abortion is a form of extremist hate that amounts to the torture of women.” Supposedly, the pro-life bills that have passed across the country are indicative of a “crisis,” “organized and well-resourced by very extremist groups.” And by “extremist groups” she means “conservative, Christian organizations.”
Not content solely to use the offensive “climate denier” term against dissenting views on climate change, a Guardian writer adopted the term “extinction deniers” in a tirade against skeptics on May 23. Contributing writer Jim Tobias claimed Republicans instigated a “campaign of climate deception,” and smeared them as “extinction deniers” for listening to critics of an upcoming United Nations report during a May 22, House committee hearing.
In an article posted on Monday, The Guardian attacked what the liberal Tennessee Equality Project has dubbed the “Slate of Hate”-- a set of bills designed to protect religious liberty in Tennessee. The headline asserted that the state is “set to ‘legalize hate.’”
Just when it seemed The Guardian couldn’t become even more biased on climate issues than it already was, it announced updates to its “style guide” to even more extreme language on the subject.
The British paper announced on May 17, it now prefers “climate emergency, crisis or breakdown” to the phrase “climate change.” It also said “‘global heating’ is favoured over ‘global warming,’” but did not ban the other phrases.
Retired NBA career scoring champ Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is back on the attack with yet another stinging rebuke of conservatives in a commentary appearing in The Guardian. Abdul-Jabbar says he is a gun owner and "this is not a finger-wagging creed demanding the banning of all firearms." But before he's through with his latest diatribe, he's demanding legislative controls on who should be allowed to own a gun.
