Here’s why the supercommittee is failing, in one sentence: Democrats wanted the rich to pay more in taxes towards deficit reduction, and Republicans wanted the rich to pay less in taxes towards deficit reduction.
Okay, that’s fine, it’s one thing to have conviction in your beliefs, but it’s quite another thing to say there’s only one side to the story (surprise – their’s!) and that only one side of the story should be reported by the media!
Any news outlet that doesn’t convey this basic fact to readers and viewers with total clarity is obscuring, rather than illuminating, what actually happened here.
Yes, because far be it for the media to do their job as journalists and report the fact that there are two sides to the story! You have to love the way most liberals cannot even hide their desire to be living in an authoritarian state with a state-controlled media. ONLY ONE SIDE DESERVES CONSIDERATION – OURS!
As a lover of words, my favorite line from the advocate for tyranny was some fine poetry in the most Orwellian sense:
we will be inundated with reams of bogus false equivalence reporting about it
So I tweet back to my friend (former friend in his book) the following:
RT @moment_um: “bogus false equivalence reporting” – lefties hate idea of 2 sides 2 story, no wonder every dictatorship on Earth is leftist
Me personally? I like freedom, I like having my ideas challenged, I like the debate. So very sad that so many liberals want to surround themselves with only the like-minded, choosing to live in a tiny little pond of political clones of themselves.
The authoritarian streak runs deep in so many liberals, they don’t even disguise their hate for freedom, they don’t want their ideas challenged, they don’t like the ideas of free speech and a free debate, their idea of a perfect world is a world where everyone thinks in absolute lock step. How utterly, unbelievably boring.
Is it any wonder that every single totalitarian dictatorship on this Earth is left-wing, socialist, communist with a state-controlled media? This is the left-wing version of a perfect world – a boot smashing a human face forever.
