Liberals gone wild.

The last thing that Liberals want is open dialogue.  The democratic presidential contenders refused to appear at a Fox News sponsored debate after the liberal activist groups applied their progressive activist pressure.  Why?  These liberal groups do not like Fox.  Got a grudge against fair and balanced.  Got a grudge against contrary opinion.  Got a grudge against anyone challenging them on anything.   Now Robert Greenwald and company are going after the advertisers on Fox News.  Can’t win an argument, so threaten the innocent advertisers. 

“MoveOn.org, the Campaign for America’s Future and liberal blogs like DailyKos.com are asking thousands of supporters to monitor who is advertising on the network. Once a database is gathered, an organized phone-calling campaign will begin, said Jim Gilliam, vice president of media strategy for Brave New Films, a company that has made anti-Fox videos.”   About 5000 have signed up to be watchdogs in local areas where the initial efforts will begin.  “It’s a lot more effective for Sam’s Diner to get calls from 10 people in his town than going to the consumer complaint department of some pharmaceutical company,” Gilliam said.”   more….

Lowe’s pulled it’s ads from Fox, and Home Depot is targeted as the next to receive thousands of ranting calls from the sheep at moveon and DailyKos.   It reminds me of the tactics used by Martha Burk against the Augusta Golf Club.  Why did she not like Augusta?   They do not admit women into membership.  Well golly gee whiz.  What a tragedy of justice for a private organization to choose their own membership requirements.  Amazing is the thunking of these folks. 

There is a blog out there lost in time called “Fox Attacks, they distort, we reply.”  Their entire purpose is to destroy Fox News.   They don’t like Bill O’Reilly and Robert Murdock for exposing some of the ranting’s and hate attacks of the left.  Bill is supposed to be nicer.  Let the liberal guests take over the show.   The O’Reilly show is called the “O’Loofah Factor” and Bill just puts out there his “racist, sexist and downright stupid content” for a fair and balanced show.  Other transgressions of Fox include “fighting the scientific truth of the climate crisis,”  “attacking, mocking and smearing Black America,” and “the erroneous and slanted stories about Barack Obama.” 

And that is not nice.  That is considered an attack, a smear job.   

What is it about these “progressive liberal left-wing nutcases that do not want an open debate for all of America to see themselves?   What could be wrong with a Lincoln-Douglas style of debate?   What could be wrong with democrats hosting a democrat debate sponsored by Fox?   If the democrat arguments and their knowledge and understanding of the issues are not open to be scrutinized by the opposition, then they should run away and quit.  Let’s have some details.  Why do liberals think Universal healthcare is the best for America.  How would the performance of doctors be affected?  Would the doctors be subjected to price controls for their procedures, why, or why not?  How would that affect the patient?  Would the waiting times for procedures increase, and why, or why not?  Would illegal immigrants be granted the same as citizens, and why or why not?  How would the feds control who gets a treatment and who does not, when would the treatment be performed and where and by whom?  Any choices open for the patient to decide, what and what not?   Could a person choose their own doctor, why or why not?  If a doctor disagreed with the system, what would be his options?  Would hospitals be subjected to lawsuits for malpractice?  Doctors?  The government?   Someone has to pay for this system, so who would that be and how much?  If that does not cover the costs, then who pays?  On and on and on.  But tough questions are not asked.   Those questions above are simple, but could any of the democrat contenders deliberate on any of those for 15 minutes?

Canada has been under a Universal Health care system and it has been reported that many more Canadians are choosing to pay their own way and come to America for treatments.  Why?  How would your system differ?  How would it be better? or worse?

 

No, I don’t see the liberal democrats desiring a real honest to goodness open debate of the real issues facing America today.  Their arguments are too thin and fall apart under the least amount of pressure.

 

Now DailyKos has come up with a new conspiracy theory.  They are unashamedly “suggesting football star Pat Tillman was murdered in Afghanistan on orders from the White House.”  Oh but it’s only raising questions…..and suspicions. 

The democratic congress will soon call for another one of their investigative hearings wasting millions more.  CNN and C-Span will produce it.  DailyKos will inform their sheep daily and shoot instructions and “the questions to ask” to the committee, and call for additional heads to roll, since Bill O’Reilly still has his.

  1. You forgot to mention that this was started by FOX when they got JetBlue to stop advertising on dailykos. Bill O claimed that he was never going to fly on JetBlue again (or something). The liberal bloggers are just responding in kind. If Fox can’t take it, they shouldn’t have started the boycott business. Here is the youtube video that started the response.
