Since she posed the theme, it is only fitting to present in matching imagery my rebuttal to MSNBC host’s Rachel Maddow’s current Washington Post opinion column, “Republicans bank on fear in this election.”
Ironically, Maddow’s choice of Halloween provides the perfect setting for rebuttal; for, in its thinking, feeling and actions, under aka Obama, journalism is certifiably dead.
No surprise, to we who endure an endless barrage of necrotic ‘news’ in which political Truth is effectively destroyed by zombie journalists, editors and media executives. It’s routine psychodrama, since aka Obama’s fiendish 2008 Campaign to seize the Office Of United States President. Under vigilant, punitive watch by well-placed saboteurs, alternately sweetened by lures of ‘special treatment’, the American media’s souls have been slaughtered.
Evidence lies strewn everywhere. Everywhere.
Consider the once-great Washington Post, former employer of investigative reporters Woodward and Bernstein, whose relentless, brave work led to the resignation of President Nixon.
Today, spun in the glow of Ms. Maddow’s literary talent, Washington Post powers-that-be routinely regard her opinions print-worthy. Technique and Truth, however, are not synonymous. Nor are Talent and Truth.
Post-mortem examination of Maddow’s thoughts on the meaning of America’s 2014 Midterm Elections provides chilling evidence of Zombie Journalism.
Keep in mind that to Maddow and The Left, a frightening specter is looming: Democrats have lost control.
Masquerading as journalist, smugly, Maddow slays her demon.
Why are Republicans favored by We The People over Democrats? According to her, American voters have fallen under the spell of baseless fear-mongering.
Alas, had Washington Post one authentically alive Editor, s/he would quickly grasp that it had been drawn into quite the ‘drama diabolique’.
For, by publishing this column, a reader, any reader, can reasonably assume the following are editorial positions of Washington Post:
- American Journalists beheaded – what us, worry?
- ISIS slaughtering thousands – oh well, c’est la guerre!
- Borders over-run by violent criminals – that’s the southern states’ problem.
- An Ebola Epidemic? – how preposterous!
- Election/Ballot Fraud – wink, wink, nothing to see here, let’s move on.
“This year, the closing argument from the Republican side is a whole bunch of ghastly fantasies: Ebola, the Islamic State, vague but nefarious aspersions about stolen elections and a whole bunch of terrifying fantasies about our border with Mexico.”
‘Ghastly fantasies’, eh?
The fantasy is Maddow’s, a spun-from-the-depths-of-denial rationale for why America is resoundingly recoiling from aka Obama and his Democrat Party: she characterizes the 2014 Elections as “the most deeply craven, vacuous political season in years”.
Well, Ms. Maddow, this Rag-Tag Patriot has a thing or two to tell you.
What’s ‘vacuous’ is the place at Washington Post – and at all MSM organizations – where authentic journalists used to dwell. Where editors used to stand for journalistic Integrity. Where the sign that hung over every decent newsroom read: “Dogged Pursuit Of Truth”.
Like a scene from a true horror film, America’s newsrooms now are populated with credentialed, talented zombies in Persistent Pursuit of Political Agenda. Spookily, their souls are hollow. By every important criteria, their ‘place’ in journalism history is vacant. Wicked deed after wicked deed of aka Obama and his Administration not only pass through these so-called newsrooms unnoticed, they go unpunished.
Does this Heinous Truth strike terror in the hearts of Americans? Absolutely.
That’s why We The People are resoundingly rejecting aka Obama and his Party. That’s why even liberals are screaming, and running away. The fear is real; fear not just of the threats Maddow ridicules, but of the terrifying reality of Life in America within the clutches of the God-less.
Meanwhile, back at what used to be Washington Post, and at places purporting to be news outlets across this country, under a tattered aegis of Journalism, editors busy themselves quashing ‘unfavorable’ stories, whilst writers masquerading as reporters spin Truth into dust. In desecrated offices, ghosts of The Politically Wicked dance, delighted by residence in once-hallowed spaces. From kitchen table to commuter lap to office desk, The Party of Sin grins, assuring themselves that if indeed they behaved badly, surely Washington Post would be exposing them, and calling on Lady Justice!
And so it goes, in these last days of Identity Fraud “Obama” and his cadre of politically radical criminal comrades, who still hold faith that dressing respectably masks their devious souls. Hitler stole power by appearing ‘respectable’, they reason. It’s all about the visual. The carefully spun story.
In a Halloween world, perhaps.
Aka: The World Of Zombie Journalism.
Where, so it goes, for the weighty tons of brittle bones who each day dress up as journalists and editors; then, each night rest, steeped in self-congratulations on a good day’s work done. Yes, a good day’s work, judged solely by a hefty salary ‘earned’; the standard not Did we use our platforms to tell Americans the Truth? But, rather: Did we effectively use [in Truth, abuse] our platforms to pointedly drive home our ‘Agenda’?
Halloween, and every other day, We The People of The United States are no longer tricked. We cringe from the lies. We retch from the reek of deceit. In newspapers, newscasts, journalistic websites, despite prodigious efforts to disguise them, we clearly discern America’s Menacing Shadows, where Light once shone.
Lo, these past wicked years, yes, what with the layers of lies, thick billowing smoke, dazzling mirrors, strategically placed saboteurs, zombie media, and highly skilled deceivers, We The People had trouble fingering America’s Political Evildoers. It took us time to discern what they’d been up to. Not to worry. We are authentically alive. Revulsion has set in. No matter how prettily they self-label, immediately, we now recognize the poison in their ‘treats’.
For the Truth is: on the heels of Halloween, in marches All Saints Day. Lady Justice, America’s authentic standard-bearer, has re-appeared, with a vengeance. Masks will be torn off; wicked souls, exposed–and punished; zombies, thrown into the abyss. This, how actual human history plays out.
Via Maddow, Washington Post, by its own hand, imparts to America very wicked ‘wisdom’: Far more important than Political Integrity, our “Halloween candy was cheap this year.” With its endorsement of Maddow’s column, Washington Post agrees: that is the standard by which America’s political well-being ought be judged.
