The radical leftists who have staffed up the legacy media are losing all pretenses of being neutral reporters, and coming out of the closet as rabid partisans lately. It is one thing to openly swoon over Barack Obama at off-the-record events, which keeps the general public out of the loop, while privately reaffirming media solidarity as partisans. But it is quite something else to put one's name on a publication which argues for delegitimizing opposition to the Anointed One.Slate online magazine advocates the same thing today: destroy the GOP. Remove all barriers to the Left's communization of the nation once known as the United States of America. With victory in sight, the left is impatient to seal the deal, finish the job: destroy American liberty and replace it with a collectivist tyranny.
This latest development again underscores the deepening divide between right and left in America. It could have easily been foreseen that it would come to this. For years the left has had a near monopoly on information and news reporting, and this monopoly has borne fruit, the biggest of which is Barack Obama.
At this point in our history, I do not see an electoral pathway to preserve the liberties bequeathed to us by the Founding Fathers and the Constitution. It may require another American Revolution or civil war. Possibly the best alternative is peaceful secession of the various states, forming new associations and new unions based on commonly-held values.
I doubt, however, that the left will allow a peaceful solution. They are all about power and force. What you or I want is not a concern to them. We are mere putty to be molded to their will and vision.
