Comment Of The Day: “’Nah, There’s No Mainstream Media Bias!’ As Chuck Todd Drops The Mask”

This fierce Comment of the Day by Steve-O-in NJ is one more think-piece in a slowly  completing jigsaw puzzle that promises to reveal an ugly, ugly picture.

I can’t quite make sense out of it yet, but I see other pieces; the attacks on Jews by blacks in New York, the rise of anti-Semistsm on the Left, Rep. Omar’s open mourning of an anti-American, murderous Iranian terrorist, Pete Buttigieg’s cynical use of God to make his partisan arguments, Joe Biden’s neon hypocrisy (Joe says he is a devout Catholic who adheres to his religion’s teachings, but he strongly supports abortion because he won’t “impose” his beliefs on others), the concerted efforts of LGTBG activists to bend small businesses owned by Christian to their will rather than leave them to their beliefs—the liberal contempt for religion and the religious is of long standing, and the Democrats have paid discounted prices for their arrogance.

I’m not sure how the pieces fit together yet, or how ugly the final picture will be.

Here is Steve-O’s Comment of the Day, taking off from a quote in the post, “‘Nah, There’s No Mainstream Media Bias!’ As Chuck Todd Drops The Mask”

“If you’re religious, you’re a dope, and you’re the problem. That’s what he thinks. That’s what most of them think.”

I wish it were that simple. Non-believers and nominal believers are pretty much the same as the rest of us. Militant atheists (the ones who constantly attack the beliefs of others) are usually miserable souls and relatively easily dismissed or walked away from. Chuck Todd is one of the insidious liberal elite who see religion as just one more item in the locker of things that can be weaponized against those he doesn’t agree with and wants to see gone. The liberal are happy to have the boost of black churches and ministers. They are happy to portray them as pillars of the community who bravely stand up to the oppressor and defy the racist system. They are happy to have the moral boost that synagogues can provide, whether it’s from the progressive ones for whom Judaism isn’t much more than spiritualized leftism, or the black-clad Orthodox who still count a few tattooed Holocaust survivors among them, both for themselves and because they are one more means to remind everyone that They Are Different And Must Be Respected, so no saying “Merry Christmas” or singing “Silent Night.” They are also happy to have whatever boost they can get from the mosques, and weaponize them to remind us that Not All Muslims Are Terrorists, in fact very few are, and most of them are SUCH warm people of faith, and don’t you feel stupid and cruel for not trusting them?

At the same time they weaponize Catholicism against its adherents, and say how dare you support a church that treats women as brood mares and acts as a procurer for pedophiles? They weaponize evangelical Christianity too, saying how dare you support a church that tells you how to think and supports those icky conservative values? Maybe they’re ok, just ok, mind you, with squishy Episcopalian churches that just exist to wave at the liberal agenda as it goes by, and Unitarian churches that just shrug and say “follow your journey and live your truth,” but probably more than half of them are actively hostile to Christianity in any form, and look down their noses at its adherents.

The Jews can light their candles in memory of oppression, the Muslims can call out what Obama called “the most beautiful sound in the world,” but, until you Christians put down that hateful old book of fairy tales and get with the program, we can’t and won’t think of you as being of any value, and we’ll just laugh at you while we drink our expensive wine and tell our jokes at conservatives’ expense.

By the way, why DID Sarah Palin have to study before she went to the doctor?

  1. The Jews can light their candles in memory of oppression, the Muslims can call out what Obama called “the most beautiful sound in the world,” but, until you Christians put down that hateful old book of fairy tales and get with the program, we can’t and won’t think of you as being of any value, and we’ll just laugh at you while we drink our expensive wine and tell our jokes at conservatives’ expense.

    It’s fine for the extreme political left to be openly bigoted towards Christians but not towards Jews or Muslims; we have been approaching this for a while. I have some long time liberal Christian friends that live in deeply progressive areas of Madison, WI who are really beginning to feel the open bigotry and yes persecution from the extreme left because they are Christians and it’s driving them to one of two places, hiding their religious beliefs or straight into the hands of the political right. I know a couple of families in the Madison, WI area that won’t put up Christmas lights, a tree, or show any outward visible acknowledgement that Christmas exists plus they’ve changed the church they attend to outside Madison.

    Christians need to stand up for their religious freedoms before they are pushed underground. “Ok Boomer” is getting more popular from the lunatics in the extreme left causing many to simply not engage with them, how will these wackos be addressing Christians?

    Through the brainwashed eyes of a progressive; being any combination of old, white, male or a Christian is the sign of evil.

  2. From the very progressive San Francisco: We are experiencing an noteable expansion of Christian sects in the Bay Area. My friends in the Cornerstone Church are providing meeting/worship locations for these new sects. I’m not sure what this means but it’s happening in the heartland of secularism. Can it be possible there is a pendulum swinging towards our fundamental values? I hope so . . .

  3. These past few weeks have been particularly disturbing both politically and socially and my pessimism about the USA is growing rapidly. It’s becoming very difficult to pinpoint any true optimism through the dense invisible smog of pessimism and hate that’s hanging low over the entire United States choking out all that’s good.

    I’m a people watcher during the Christmas season. For years, I actually spend time between Thanksgiving and Christmas wandering stores not for gifts but to watch and enjoy the sharing of good will. It’s a Christmas tradition of mine to essentially get filled up at Christmas time with the good will of others, I take it in. Sure there was a record amount of dollars spent during the Christmas season but did any of you look up from your Christmas list, look away from the racks and shelves to see people’s faces or talk to others as they were shopping?

    Something was different this year.

    People are actively withdrawing from public interactions with others. The lines of children to sit on Santa’s lap were much shorter than I’ve seen in the past. The smiles on peoples faces were either gone or very brief, straight faces were abound and eye contact seemed to be taboo. It’s as if fear of communicating with others was dominating. People looked at others that were smiling and saying things like “Merry Christmas” as if they were a pariah and they appeared to veere away from anyone that appeared to be happy. This Christmas season was different and not in a good way.

    Has all the political division, doomsday predictions, and open intimidation from the extreme left take its toll on society?

    I’m very perplexed and my experience this Christmas season has caused me to withdraw myself as I personally reflect on what I witnessed.

    • I never really thought to do that, I’m always scrambling to prepare through a tightening budget and various family or creative issues in the last two months of the year. While my faith in any organized religion has taken massive hits in recent decades, my faith is more deist who values Christian traditions, led by the goodwill of the holidays. As long as you treat others with goodwill, I don’t really care which of the six million names of God you follow.

      However, progressives have NO goodwill toward men (in the more general groupings of disapproved cultural groups OR men in general) now. Clearly the Islam-supporting Congress leaders have no goodwill to people who are different from them. That is dangerous to the Republic as they are being abusive of various majorities. Ever fracturing the body politic into smaller tribes is not a wise strategy in a two-party system. They seem to think this is Europe, that they can refuse to compromise with another party. But our two-party system has a long history pf both parties remaking themselves when they get too far from the public. The Republicans were the last new party to enter the top two slots and that was a hundred and sixty years ago. It should have been time for the Democrats to rebuild and revamp when Hilary’s loss cam, but they have metastasized their denial into a cancer.

      • “Ever fracturing the body politic into smaller tribes is not a wise strategy in a two-party system.”

        Keeping their end goal in mind, it is “wise” if you want to bring that system to its knees. You cannot destroy a system when the people are united behind that system, therefore, you divide and conquer. The ends justifies the means, right?

  4. It’s kind of ironic that Evangelicals are the strongest supporters of the State of Israel while Reformed Jews in America are mostly leftists. Anti-Semitism on university campus increases as well as hate crimes in their communities. Why won’t these people wake up. Exclusive country clubs are gone but they still think they’re living back in the FDR era.
