"A reader of this site I was speaking with, who immigrated to the
United States from a communist country, said that amongst his friends,
they have a phrase to describe what happened in their countries: “first
came the pen, and then the fist.”
First the media softened the environment, and only then rulers like Ho Chi Minh came to power.
It is the media that has provided cover for the Emboldenment
of the anti-freedom groups of 2012. It is here that we need to bring
our battle, for the media sets the narrative, chooses
the protagonists and the scapegoats, and picks what is news, and what
the public will never hear about. It is local media, above all, that
reaches households on a daily basis who aren’t attuned to politics.
I’ve been observing my local media channels: ABC, NBC, CBS, PBS, and
the incredible emboldenment of their reporters to refuse to report–and
scoff at those who would challenge them–any news that does not fit their
narrative. They no longer hide it, they’ve talked on camera about their
plans to refuse to cover events. NBC Chicago reporters have now, multiple times, exposed themselves without fear. For who will report it?
If you plan to write your congressman or attend a townhall meeting,
consider calling out your local t.v. station instead. Write a letter to
the editor describing their actions rather than a politician’s.
The mainstream media has successfully softened the environment; the
politicians we elect and the decisions they make are just manifestations
of a media-indoctrinated culture.
Let’s make the word of 2013: Insurrection. (Legal, of course.)
Insurrection against the local media
Insurrection against the teachers union and their stranglehold over the next generation
Insurrection against keeping quiet at the dinner table or at your church
Insurrection against the elements that no longer keep quiet about
their desire to destroy America, and more important, the limits America
was founded to restrict against its government.
If we don’t insurrect (legally) in 2013, emboldenment will be
outshone by persecution, of which we who support freedom and America
have already had a taste."

"Our press has become the tip of the arrow for one political party, and more than anything, one political personality cult."
