Liberal weapons are losing their edge

By Tom Quiner

Marco Rubio is correct.

More and more Americans understand that the mainstream media is a public relations arm of the Democratic Party.

Their ostentatious leftward bias was on full display at the last Republican debate hosted by CNBC. (Tonight’s Republican debated is hosted by Fox’s business channel. Expect more balance.)

The MSM is doubling down in their efforts to destroy Dr. Ben Carson’s campaign. You’ve probably read about Politico’s hit job on the good doctor and how their reporters had to back pedal and correct some of their inaccurate reporting.

Then the Washington Post ran a sprawling hit piece on him on Sunday. Get a load of the biased rhetoric employed by their reporter:

“Carson’s personal accomplishments—and the work he has done to help black communities—still garner respect and pride among African Americans. Yet, while he has been a conservative for as long as he has been famous, many worry that he risks eroding his legacy in their community and transforming himself into a fringe political figure.”

The word ‘yet’ negates the sentence that precedes it.

And who are these ‘many’ who are so concerned about Carson’s legacy? And how ‘many’ are we talking about? In reality, the ‘many’ are liberals who fear an ‘uppity, conservative black man’ and need to put him in his place.

And what does the reporter mean by a “fringe” political figure? Good grief, the guy leads the polls. Despite predictions (and feverish longing among liberals) that his poll numbers would eventually crash and burn, they don’t.

This is the kind of reporting Barack Obama never got from the MSM.

Just look at Obama’s mentors. He was tutored by a  rogue’s gallery of anti-American mentors in his formative years:

Frank Marshall Davis was a communist and a pornographer. His sentiments were with the Soviet Union and Red China.

Roberto Unger is a philosopher, Brazilian politician, Obama’s former Harvard law professor, and a socialist.

Edward Said is Palestinian, an anti-colonialist, and anti-Israeli whom some say is a terrorist sympathizer.

Bill Ayers founded a communist underground group, The Weather Underground, that bombed public buildings and killed people.

The Reverend Jeremiah Wright was an anti-American, anti-Israeli preacher at the church Barack and Michelle Obama attended for two decades.

The media showed little appetite to explore these anti-American influences on the young Obama.

By contrast, here are the people Dr. Carson lists as his mentors:

  • William Jaeck, his fifth grade science teacher
  • Frank McCotter, his high school biology teacher
  • Lemuel Doakes, his band director
  • Aubrey Tompkins, the choir director at the church he attended while going to Yale

Normal people for Carson vs. America-haters for Obama.

Dr. Ben Carson is a disaster for the MSM and their progressive sycophants in the Democratic Party. He must be destroyed. Democrats have been winning some 90 to 95% of the Black vote during the Obama years.

If a Black Republican candidates pulls a mere 27% of the Black vote, Democrats lose.

That’s why the MSM is out to get Carson. But their bias is so obvious, it’s getting harder for them to get swing voters to take their hit pieces seriously.

    I would love a Cruz/Carson ticket.

      If a liberal wouldn’t vote for that ticket, then he or she must be racist and an enemy of DIVERSITY!

    Carson has no policy chops whatsoever and manages to have less practical experience than Obama. He’s being vetted because he is a frontrunner, as he should be. The reflexive “blame the media” song and dance he trots out whenever he gets caught in a jam is getting tiresome. I thought he looked like one of the weakest candidates tonight. I thought Kasich and Fiorina were among the strongest. Bush was better than he has been. Rubio and Cruz treaded water. Trump panders to idiots. Paul is a lovable wonk, but totally unelectable. Certainly a much more substantive debate than the last one.

      Nick, I agree with most of what you say. I do think the media is working overtime to dig up dirt on the good doctor, just as they worked overtime to give Mr. Obama a free pass. Paul certainly had his strongest debate. I don’t think Rubio gave a satisfactory answer to Paul’s assertion that the Rubio increase in the child tax credit would amount to a new $15 trillion entitlement (in lost tax revenues) over the next decade. Rubio needs to clarify and respond. Thanks for weighing in. I appreciate it.

    Carson poses a real threat to the liberal media, as well as liberal blacks. How dare a black become a Republican? They see him as a uncle Tom, moronic, unable to think on his feet, and yet, whenever the media attempts to make him look like a fool, he turns the tables on them. He is a thinker, unlike some of the libs, who tend to go with he flow. When he speaks, substance comes out of that mouth, instead of hot air. He may speak too slow for some, but at least we understand where he stands, and what he wants for this great country. He doesn’t have to yell or rant, in order to get his point across. The black community has been duped by the Dems for so long, that they would rather believe their lies, rather than the truth, spoken by a Republican. Blessings.

      Seems like a pretty accurate summary.
