A Liar By Any Other Name…
The crisis continues in what passes for journalism in America, as we see the typical hypocritical double-standards from the “dishonest media” and their misled victims continuing to “protest” Donald Trump’s election as US President after more than 300 days in office, from same sectors who roasted Trump for declaring he would not straightaway accept the election result, pending suspicions of rigging.
Some people at the New York Times must not have forgotten last year when Publisher Arthur O. Sulzberger Jr. vowed to “rededicate” his paper to reporting honestly, following their dishonest reporting of the Trump Campaign, because the very next day, New York Times reporters hypocritically hailed anti-Trump demonstrators in “Protesters Take Anti-Trump Message to His Doorstep, and Plan Next Steps.”
Maybe that’s why our Quote for Today Committee chose Hitler’s Nazi Propaganda Minister Dr. Joseph Goebbels’ “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it, especially all those Dumbed-Down, Self-Absorbed, Media-Influenced, Celebrity-Obsessed, Politically-Correct, Uninformed, Short-Attention-Span, Free-Stuff Grabbing, Low-Information Obama Supporters Who Put The Positively Worst President In History In The White House—Twice, And Had Planned To Give Obama A Third Term By Voting For “Crooked Hillary,” And Get All Of Their “Fake News” From Our Local Obama Supporters In The Press, Like The Ones At The Fishwrap, and on Channels 5, 9, 12, and 19.
Hurley the Historian says according to the History Channel, on Friday’s date in 1973, President Richard Nixon insisted he was not a crook, but that whopper was only surpassed when Presidential Pants-dropper Bill Clinton wagged his finger at the camera and swore “I did not have sex with that woman — Ms. Lewinsky.” These days, some people are just comparing those whoppers with a few of Obama’s campaign promises, which cynics are finally calling either “lying” or “incompetence.”
So the biggest problem for our so-called journalists these days would be coming up with a way to report Obama and all those Dishonest DemocRATS lied without having to call them “Liars.” It sounds so judgmental.
Four years ago, Dishonest DemocRAT House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer claimed it was not a lie when Obama told Americans they could keep their plans, because people interpreted what he said “expansively,” whatever the hell that’s supposed to mean.
And how about when the “as yet un-rededicated” New York Times called Obama’s “Keep Your Plan Lie” an “Incorrect Promise?” That was the first time we’d seen that expression used—EVER! And all of this was because it wouldn’t have been Politically Correct for any of our Kneepad Liberals in the Press to call our Previous Political Prevaricator in the White House a “Liar.”
These days, many people say “Crooked Hillary” is coming into her own as America’s Worst Liar in Political History.
So wait a minute, maybe if Perfidious Politicians just used words that meant the same thing as “Lies” and “Liars,” it might not sound so bad.
