On January 8th, a madman opened fire on a crowd of people in Tucson, Arizona.
On January 9th, the media-as-piranha began their feeding frenzy on Sarah Palin.
On January 21, 2011, Palin's approval rating dropped to a new low of 38%.
"You say it enough and you repeat the lie, repeat the lie, repeat the lie until eventually people believe it."
When Congressman Steve Cohen made the above remark he was attempting to paint the G.O.P as Nazis, but in reality he was reading directly from the play book of the Left and their public relations operating arm, otherwise known as the media.
The Tucson Solution PR takedown of Palin was fast, effective and complete. It was accomplished despite an absolute lack of evidence of any involvement on her part. But what's most troubling is that the voices who stand in opposition to the leftist takeover of this country knew the shootings were being exploited in true Emanuelean fashion -- "Never let a crisis go to waste." The play was telegraphed. They saw it coming, watched it happen, and still were unable to prevent it. This is a sad and scary day for any Liberty-loving citizen who is paying attention and properly assessed the Left Wing process of destruction and its success.
The media should be vilified for the sheer barbarity of exploiting such a tragedy for political gain. Instead, they emerge victorious and clean. The Wicked Witch of the Left and the flying monkey media ravaged an opposing political force. They are the enemy: focused, partisan and inhumane. God help our nation if conservatives do not find a way to effectively counter with more than equal force.
Sarah Palin proved to be a formidable political force when she flexed her muscles in the 2010 midterms. The Left is determined to not let it happen again in 2012, so they went to work on the not-so-independent minds of Independents - the true controlling class of voters in American politics. They bombarded them with an unrelenting barrage of false images on television, the blogging community and in newspapers.
They took Sarah Palin from the political playing field and like the little monster from the Twilight Zone sent her to the corn field. Monster, an apt description.
Cohen was correct when he made his Goebbels references. He just had the party wrong.
