I deal with a lot of people and most of them don’t come as close to being the kind of conservative that I am. So the intolerance to other people’s opinions isn’t something that I understand. Most of the time I am very disappointed in the people I meet, but I figure if they’ve gotten through 30 to 40 years of life and still have liberal leanings toward things—a five-minute conversation with me isn’t going to change much for them—so I don’t waste the time talking. I deal with things as close to their level as I can allow myself and move on to the next topic without a thought. If I didn’t do that I couldn’t speak to anybody—but that’s OK, because that type of thing doesn’t do much for me anyway. But having an intolerance toward other points of view—if I functioned like that, I simply couldn’t live. That’s why it is so disgusting to me to see how the White House Correspondents media behaved Saturday night as President Trump stiffed them by doing something else in a different city that night. I don’t blame Trump at all—the media does cover him differently than say, President Obama. In spite of all their talk about being a relevant part of “democracy” the press clearly didn’t hold Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and Eric Holder to the level of scrutiny that they do anybody in the Trump administration—so it is they who created this mess—and only they can clean it up.
I’ve told you dear reader before, the communist insurgents from the 1950s sought openly to take over Hollywood and the American media hoping to advance those collectivist ideas a half a century later and bring down the capitalist republic envied around the world so that a global order could rise from the ashes. Public schools have assisted in this enterprise and that is why on May first 2017 there were communist demonstrations in cities across America that we wouldn’t have seen ten or twenty years ago. Those communist sympathizers are now in Hollywood and in our media and they have advanced that communist plot line. Not that long ago there were a sizable number of conservatives in those fields. There were always liberals in Hollywood and in the media, but they weren’t this obnoxious and insistent on shutting out conservative voices. But these days conservatives are under attack which is most evident at Fox News where all the old timers are losing their jobs to more progressive liberals. I felt sorry for Eric Bolling who had his new show debut at 5 PM on “May Day” and it was a disaster. Why did he have on Mark Cuban? He’s an idiot—I don’t want to hear from him. In fact I didn’t want to hear from anybody but Eric on his show—more opinions don’t equate to better thinking. But all Fox News could think to do in that time slot was another version of The Five. I listen to liberals all day long—I don’t want to hear them on my news after working hard all day. I’m open to other view points, but when it comes to my entertainment time—I’m going to choose people who are like-minded. If Fox News doesn’t give me what I’m looking for I’ll find other alternatives—and that is the real reason for the misery displayed at the Correspondent’s Dinner Saturday
The country is moving back toward conservatism and the Hollywood types along with their partners in the media don’t like it. They are not open to people with other opinions and it shows in the way the covered Obama. There were so many things they could have nailed him on, but because he was a black Democrat they literally gave him a free pass—but decided to put down the gauntlet for Trump and we all see it. Who do they think they’re kidding? They are the cause of all the divisiveness and when we don’t go along with their media plans—and just openly accept their stupid progressivism they think we are the ones who are intolerant. Check out the riots just this year at Berkeley. That will tell you everything you need to know.
For instance, I typically enjoy the Star Trek movies when they come out, so I watched the last one, Star Trek: Beyond. It was horrendously stupid—overly progressive and ridiculously political. They were more concerned with showing gay sex and multi-cultural civilization than in telling a good story—so the movie bombed. It was rejected at the box office just like most projects are that are overly sexualized toward a progressive direction—because the United States as a market is not liberal. When media companies start thinking their task is to make people into a certain thing by using art to take them there—they will likely fail if that art does not represent the demographic targeted by the art. Star Trek: Beyond might represent the gay people at a Pride parade with all their rainbows and dudes dressed in drag—but it doesn’t register with some mechanic in Wichita, Kansas who is certainly not thinking of sticking any part of himself in the ass of some hairy assed man. The media both in the press and in entertainment failed to understand their marketplace and thought they actually had the power to move culture instead of giving culture what it wants.
That is the big distinction, the liberals in the news media think they can shape the minds of their viewers and the hard reality tells them that people will leave and seek out other objectives. I seldom watched The Five on Fox because I didn’t want to hear from Jaun Williams or Bob Beckel. It’s nothing personal, I just don’t want to hear their liberal voices—it’s a waste of my time. It’s not that I’m intolerant, it’s that I don’t want to hear it—and that is what the media is missing now that we are in the age of Trump. They are making themselves less relevant day by day and they still don’t know it. By the way they behaved at the correspondent’s dinner—they really don’t understand America at all. They only understand the progressive culture of New York, Washington D.C. and a few cities in California—but no place else who actually watch their programming—or not, depending on choices.
Since Fox New canned O’Reilly and really Roger Ailes over the summer, I only watch Lou Dobbs and Brett Baier at 6 pm on the Fox owned networks. I caught the Tucker Carlson segment shown above while I had breakfast because the headline caught my eye. But I don’t have time to commit to a complete show if the people in it don’t represent what I want to see. I don’t need a lecture from a bunch of artists and leftists who will take their clothes off for anybody and smoke dope every now and then—to “open” my mind to other points of view. I know what works and what doesn’t and that’s pretty much it. Maybe when I was in my twenties I had things to learn. These days, nobody knows what I do because they don’t work as hard as I do for information—so there isn’t much for them to “teach” me. I just want the news—not some 26-year-old kid crying about fairness. I want to see reports on what’s going on in the world and if the press has to spin it at all, I want a conservative view-point. I don’t want to listen to liberals cry about every little particle floating around the universe.
It was very disingenuous to listen to the press complain about Trump because honestly, I’m not sure they know where they live. All they really accomplished was that they confirmed they didn’t understand the average Trump voter who has loaded up government positions with conservatives at all levels. It’s pretty bad that POLITICO released in its recent survey that no members of the press identify themselves as Republican—when the people they are covering most likely are—and the audience who wants their news. When a majority of the press are openly Democrats it becomes a larger problem and we saw it during the Obama years and the Clinton election where they lost. They didn’t understand what happened then, or why it was a problem, and they know even less now. Yet for them the world will go on without them—because that’s how things work. It’s just too bad their liberal college professors never taught them that so to save them from this present disgrace.
