Here is a short list of prominent conservatives and independent thinkers who've been accused by their critics of being an "Uncle Tom" or some other vitriolic variation on the overplayed left-wing theme of being a traitor to their race or gender ("Aunt Tomasina," "Uncle Juan," "Aunt Jemima," "Uncle Wong," etc.)[.]
Yet again today, Rush Limbaugh demonstrated why he has remained the dominant figure on the radio airwaves for more than three decades -- few other observers dissect liberals and their endless pathologies with such precision and consistency. Why is it, Limbaugh was asked during a recent outing with friends, that liberals appear intent on savaging Senator Marco Rubio, who emerged after the Parkland school massacre as the most high-profile Republican willing to compromise with Democrats on firearms.
Using a debunked photo of Parkland student Emma Gonzalez ripping apart the Constitution and a Facebook post from Republican Congressman Steve King (Iowa) as cudgels, CNN Newsroom fill-in host Jim Sciutto and New York Times columnist Charles Blow rallied on Monday afternoon to defend the anti-gun, far-left Parkland students from conservative criticism.
On Monday's New Day, CNN host Alisyn Camerota finally conducted an interview with liberal gun control activists in a manner that didn't simply give them a forum to push their agenda and make incendiary comments about the NRA and Republicans, but actually spent several questions challenging them for demonizing their opponents. And, over the weekend during live coverage of the March for Our Lives rally, Camerota admitted that she had "mischaracterized" Florida Republican Senator Marco Rubio's response to the Parkland school shootings.
The Sunday morning after the so-called March for Our Lives rally where hundreds of thousands of anti-gun kids parroted liberal chants and slogans, the liberal network news outlets of ABC and NBC were eager to throw heaps of praise on them. It was the first story that they got to that morning and each one of them was focused on where the “movement” was going and what change they could possibly bring on the issue.
El tiroteo atroz ocurrido en una escuela en Parkland, Florida le ha dado a Univisión (así como al resto de los medios nacionales en los Estados Unidos) una oportunidad dorada de ir en pos de dos de sus pasiones: la promoción de una agenda de control de armas hasta llegar a la derogación de la Segunda Enmienda, y abrir un frente nuevo en su guerra de casi siete años contra el senador Marco Rubio.
On Thursday's All In show, MSNBC host Chris Hayes tried to correct Florida Republican Senator Marco Rubio's assertion that most Americans would oppose a general ban on semi-automatic rifles, but the self-described liberal caricature instead demonstrated that he is uninformed about guns as he assumed that the term "assault rifle," that is used by gun control advocates, refers to all semi-automatic rifles as if the two terms were interchangeable.
The horrible school shooting at Parkland, Florida has presented Univision's news division (as well as the rest of the U.S. Spanish-language news media) with a golden opportunity to pursue two of its passions: promoting gun control up to, and including, repeal of the Second Amendment; and its war against U.S. Senator Marco Rubio of almost seven years.
During his radio program on Thursday afternoon, February 22, conservative icon Rush Limbaugh hammered the “so-called Town Hall” that aired the previous night on the Cable News Network as a “disgrace” and the result of “a lifetime of propagandizing and indoctrination in the schools.”
La presentadora de Telemundo María Celeste Arrarás vuelve a la carga, apropiándose del tiroteo horrendo ocurrido en Parkland, Florida como fundamento de un editorial viciado contra el senador Marco Rubio, lleno de falacias, inconsistencias y difamaciones- todo en pos de la agenda de control de armas tan prevalente en nuestros medios nacionales de habla hispana.
Wednesday's CNN town hall to promote gun control and gun grabbing was off the rails from the very start. So-called moderator Jake Tapper sat back as the wild crowd targeted Republican Senator Marco Rubio with boos and jeers for basically just being there. The wildest moment allowed by Tapper was when Parkland, Florida student Cameron Kasky smeared the Senator by equating him to the shooter that killed 17 of his classmates.
On Tuesday, Florida Senator Marco Rubio took to Twitter to sarcastically endorse a Washington Post hit piece against him entitled “Rubio faces backlash from students, gun control advocates after shooting.” The Republican lawmaker came up with a more fitting title as he mocked the paper: “Truly insightful must read by @WashingtonPost:’Rubio faces backlash from liberal groups that have long opposed him.’”
