Cain Versus the Lynch Mob
Hi Tech Lynching is here again! Shades of Justice Clarence Thomas and Anita Hill. They're going to play the same sadistic power game they lost with Justice Thomas. Well, let 'em try, but now they are facing a revived conservative media. This is a trial of strength. When Clarence Thomas was nominated to the Supreme Court he had few defenders. Today we have talk radio and the blogs.
As a morality play this looks like Snidely Whiplash against Little Nell. The Corporate Media are widely hated and distrusted, and not just by conservatives. They are so.... mean-spirited, blood-thirsty, and lynch-mob-like. They have all the moral refinement of mafia thugs. Justice Thomas was the first one to call them a "high tech lynch mob," and they were so shocked, they let off for long enough to get a decent Senate Judiciary vote.
Well, let "High Tech Lynch Mob" be their epitaph. We've had the Yellow Press, we've had the three-network monopoly, and now we have the Lynch Mob Pres.
How amazingly the liberals give themselves away -- especially when it comes to bullying human beings they think they own. Has it ever been more obvious that the left is out to turn people into slaves? Black slaves, women slaves, poor slaves, illegal immigrant slaves, and lately, grossly ignorant college student slaves, all the little brainwashees who are camping out (on command) to Occupy the filthy rich. Like their parents.
The latest stunt is 600,000 petition signatures demanding total forgiveness of college loans. That's a personal gift of up to $40,000.00 per year for four years, not including personal upkeep, dorm fees and condoms. Why don't they just come out and say "We demand $160,000.00 each"? We've seen the "Me generation." This is the "Gimme!" generation.
The left is not tolerant, and it's certainly not compassionate. They are control freaks, and if you escape their slave plantation they will send their media dogs howling after your hide. This is Uncle Tom's Cabin all over again, with Liza running over the ice floes at night, chased by slave hunters and their yapping dogs.
And yet -- we've seen good people who will stand up to such media lynch mobs. Herman Cain is doing great, even as the media are setting up their howling at the moon. Sarah Palin and Michelle Bachman have been hurt, but I refuse to believe they are out of the running. Plastic Mitt Romney will get assaulted for his religion again, as soon as the liberals think they have a clear shot at him. We know it's going to happen.
Ronald Reagan got to know the lynch-mob left when he was President of the Screen Actors' Guild, and the communists were constantly agitating to take over Hollywood. That experience shaped his policies toward the Soviet Empire when he became President. Like Pope Paul II, Reagan received a bullet for his honesty, but he survived and won the Cold War.
Margaret Thatcher was almost assassinated by the rad-left IRA. A "comedian" of the left just called for the assassination of Sarah Palin. The left lives by accusing normal, decent people of being haters, and then they reveal their own inner hellfire to the world.
They're not hiding their hatreds any more. The hate on that side of the political arena is amazing to behold.
They hate Benjamin Netanyahu. When the Egypt-Israel Peace Treaty was signed they hated Menachem Begin. In the UK, with Margaret Thatcher in fragile old age, the puffed-up BBC still seethes with hatred against the best British Prime Minister since Winston Churchill. Look at the steep decline of the UK since Thatcher left office.
The left is not for peace. They are not for the poor or the oppressed. If they were, they would want to liberate the people of North Korea. They would have constant headlines condemning black slavery in Mauritania and the Sudan, and the sexual slavery of women in all the Shari'a states -- Saudi Arabia, Iran, all the rest.
The left can't say a kind word for the genuine slaves of this world. The Left covers it up wherever it exists. The Progs are not "progressive," but reactionary. Slave-taking lynch mobs are ancient.
That's what the grinning kid with the "We're 99%!" sign at the Occupy demos are all about. It's just that old, old, old totalitarianism, and it always attracts goofy teenagers who can't figure out what to do with their lives. It always has. The Hitler Youth was a lot of ignorant and brainwashed teenagers who loved those uniforms and the goose-stepping. They were idealistic, you see. They wanted a better world, and the first step was to kill a lot of people.
The left is not a political philosophy. It's a seething mass neurosis.
I hope that Herman Cain can sustain the courage and inner strength to stand up to the mob. I sure hope that conservatives around the world will support his stand wholeheartedly. This is the Abe Lincoln test, but it's also a character test for every decent American.
I still want to know more about Herman Cain, but I want to make up my own mind, and I sure don't want the high-tech lynch mob to do it for me.
