To protest or not to protest, that is the question … that’s not often asked by liberals. We presume it’s because they really don’t need an actual reason to be disruptive. Any event will do.
Compare a recent conservative disruption to two recent liberal disruptions.
At a Shakespeare in the Park performance, where the President of the United States is assassinated nightly in effigy, two vocal conservatives expressed their disapproval loudly. They’re likely just taking a cue from the theater company’s web site that says “the clash of opposing views leads to truth.”
Compare that to an event where outrage was expressed at the, gasp, saying of a prayer. And another example where merely saying the Pledge of Allegiance gets the same reaction as nails on a chalkboard, drowning a box of kittens or not appropriately genuflecting at the mention of Al Gore’s name.
If these are the types of activities that set off liberals, we need all the hope we can get that they don’t go rabid-raccoon-under-their-car-seat crazy over:
- Peaceful marches
- Red baseball caps
- Congressional baseball practice
- Disposable diapers
Oh… wait… never mind.
The intensity level of investigative journalism has just hit a new high, well at least compared to the previous eight years. Dreams of Watergate-like fame have returned for brave journalists across the country. They don’t need their own version of Deep Throat, although it would appear that the Trump administration is riddled with sources but without cool code names, just a quick trigger on their smart phones.
A great example is the recent energetic reporter who, gasp, caught Rick Perry reading the Drudge Report. No doubt the reporter snapped away hoping that he’d catch Secretary Perry pulling up a linked copy of Mein Kampf but apparently Drudge was the best, er worst, that it got. See for yourself, below.
The Drudge headline is a little blurry, likely due to the excited shaking as the reporter’s trembling hands held his phone. It actually reads “Great Again: +235,000.” Let’s give Perry a little credit though, he likely knew that surreptitiously browsing Drudge was the best way for positive news on job growth to get into the mainstream media’s coverage.
It’s too bad this hard hitting type of journalism is just now becoming an imposing force, otherwise perhaps a few these would have been reported.
