While in the perfect world, everyone should be accorded the same rights, in the current media directed one those who don’t conform to the currents of the moment are subjected to a media cannonade that would make the artillery barrage suffered in Verdun during the First World War look paltry by comparison. The is highly ironic as the liberal crowd that have been attributed with a consciousness that would hardly dissuade a blade of prairie vines from interrupting a superhighway have no tolerance for anyone of longstanding opinions that may predate their own. It seems the media artifice of what is touted as the irrevocable mass consensus of public opinion has become a virtual artillery piece to rain down scorn and derision upon any who hold to the right of differing opinions. We are not talking about withholding the last cup of fresh water in the midst of the Libyan desert but unconscionable abuse through denying a few pizzas and wedding cakes. How is it that the current sense of good manners precludes bringing up embarrassing issues about why our Muslim and Jewish neighbors engaged in a longstanding conflict cannot settle their differences without continued staggering financial support that grassroots middle Americans have been indirectly emptying their April bank accounts on behalf of at tax time since WWII? If it comes up to the question of numbers of people butchered needlessly back and forth then the Christian body count far exceeds by factors of ten or more, the combined totals of the latter over the last couple of hundred years. Or how, somehow the people that are paid to put on blue uniforms and the right to carry a gun are abusing a segment of the population that have a historically high rate of violent crimes of every description upon members of their own and other races. Now it seems that holding beliefs formerly considered mainstream has become an anathema to the few and must be overturned so as not to offend. I seems to recall somewhere in the history of that same time previous about ‘brown shirts’ and ‘black shirts’ in two not to far away lands demanding the same level of uncritical deference?
When you have the power of total control of the press and the persuasion of perpetual hard economic times at your disposal, I guess it is easy to keep the published opinions of your commentators firmly in tight lockstep. Wasn’t there some fellow, originally named Blair whose pen name was Orwell, who used to work at the BBC in London after WWII who wrote a novel about a journalist locked away within some fantastic world supposedly set in a not too distant future in a place called Airstrip One? How clever it must be to frame your cameras at the thickest parts of small crowds and prune a couple of convenient sound-bytes that stand in for the fabrication of overall public outrage? After all, the general public won’t lift their fingers or their butts to complain nor bother to stop buying the poison and substandard less than durable goods sold to them by spokespeople that in no way represent them or their default sense of culture. So they deserve to be led around on a leash and forced to swallow and insult or slight that some well-paid media ‘junk hound’ on either coast can think up. Heaven forbid that any consumer say something bad about a sponsor’s product! Especially if the parent company far up the chain of subsidiary has common board members with the network. The lessons learned from seventy years back when the forbears of the current empire wrecked a good part of the world so that they could clear the decks of competitors and call it a “Good War” have led to better breeding practices. Now if your outlandishly Gay Boy Scout leader demands your son or daughter accompany them on a long camping weekend, you should not’s dare to complain if they comes back home with an inverted sensibility for the taste for snails or oysters. If you have been asleep for the last seven years like some character spurted forth from the seminal pen of Washington Irving then its time that you understand what “CHANGE” really means! Your forward thinking body tattooed Gay-bait sons or daughters not having to pay for non-existent children to attend the colleges or universities that their underpaying low end jobs would not support anyhow. Have a nice day, S-U-C-K-E-R-S-!
