Hard to believe, but Abraham Lincoln, often called the Great Emancipator, is now apparently being targeted by some portion of the feral thugs of the #BlackLivesMatter cells. OK, not that hard to believe. He was, after all, allegedly White and, therefore, racist insofar as that sort are concerned.
Sick, twisted, deranged, but not something any American can really be surprised by anymore.
By all normative American standards, if we were to grade the worth of the Democrats – and I do mean they’re worth as persons, not just their job performance – we would have to give them all an “F.” They have repeatedly and utterly failed to prove that they have any worth at all.
Honestly, were it not for the fact that their inherent right to their lives is Constitutionally enumerated and not predicated on worthiness or on having earned it, we’d be well-served by accepting that they’re Lebensunwertes Leben and acting accordingly.
Then, that’s part of difference between Americans and Democrats. Americans know that the Constitution is, depending upon one’s theology, either Divine Law or Natural, and must be abided by and obeyed even when the immediate result has some negative consequences and trails. It’d be the rankest of hypocrisy for Americans to act against the Democrats in a manner that is fundamental to the Democrats’ lack of worth in the first place.
It’s actually painful for me to write this, but fairness and honesty require me to do so. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY14) aka AOC aka Baby Shart has a valid point. While her and the others of our domestic and racial enemies’ “Defund The Police” screeds and demands are vile, dangerous, and a threat to the People of our nation, she’s right to point our the smoke and mirrors bullshit, virtue signaling, response by DeBlasio and NYC City Council.
“Defunding police means defunding police,” the Democrat said in a statement Tuesday to the Gotham Gazette, Fox News reported. “It does not mean budget tricks or funny math. It does not mean moving school police officers from the NYPD budget to the Department of Education’s budget so the exact same police remain in schools.
“It does not mean counting overtime cuts as cuts, even as NYPD ignores every attempt by City Council to curb overtime spending and overspends on overtime anyways,” she continued. “It does not mean hiring more police officers while cutting more than $800 million from NYC schools.
— Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez
Yeah, her underlying desires being antithetical to all that’s right in the nation doesn’t mean she’s wrong to call out NYC government if their supposed response to those desires was nothing more that playing Three Card Monty with budget buckets and official naming conventions.
Yeah, I pretty much called it, not that it was in any way difficult to predict this series of events. With the Blacks’ race riots having “flamed out” due to the public having grown bored with hearing about them, the Lamestream Media is right back at reporting about “upsurges” in new Coronavirus cases.
Leave No Crisis Unchurned
Honestly though, it’s even all do to the Lamestream Media’s utter hatred of President Trump and their slavish devotion to the Democrat party. That just means that there’s no “downside” to the behavior. Nor is it primarily due to their narcissism, hubris, and gloating over their control of public knowledge and sentiment. Again, that just means that there’s no “downside” to the behavior.
The Lamestream Media has us lurching from crisis to crisis, with no resolution mentioned for any of them, because they need to do so. They literally feed off crises; they need them and to churn them to survive.
News – especially America’s primary vector for it, television – stopped being a cost center and became not only a profit-and-loss center but a cash cow for stations and networks by the beginning of the 1970s. This naturally degenerated into the ultimate rejection of the values of the “Golden Age of Cronkite, Huntley and Brinkley,” cable news networks.
NOTE: Fox Television Stations, LLC – 32 local stations – makes close $1,000,000,000 a year from news broadcasts. Yes, close to 1 billion USD per year off of local news.
So, being both profit-and-loss center and a cash cow forces the media to get ratings so that they can sell commercial ad spots. And that’s what they have to do. Understand. the actual business of television stations isn’t producing or airing content, it’s selling commercial ad spots for as much money as their market will bear.
Of course, they flock to whatever the public sentiment is at that time and, of course, the try to gin up as much “attention” as they can whenever there’s a crisis to be used. It’s the way – the only way – that they can stay in business.
So, just keep that in mind whenever your listening to the news. Remember that their ratings determine what they can sell commercial ad spots for and that this is how those stations stay in business and how those reporters keep their jobs – which are getting ratings, not reporting the news.
