Legal Insurrection blog issues challenge to Media Matters (and so does this humble citizen blogger)

Posted by danishova on November 1, 2010

William Jacobson reports on Media Matters latest Newspeaky shenanigans:

David Brock, the founder of Media Matters, has a really important demand which requires everyone’s immediate attention:

Media Matters’ Brock challenges Palin to release tapes

"Sarah Palin has made serious accusations of journalistic malfeasance. Either Palin accurately described the tapes, or she did not. America’s news consumers need to know the truth about these serious accusations. The public in Alaska needs to know the truth so they are fully and correctly informed before they cast their ballots Tuesday. Palin has a responsibility to release the full, unedited tapes publicly and to all media."Now David Brock is not stupid.  He knows that there are no "tapes" to release.  The recording was left on the voicemail of a Joe Miller staffer, who has released the entire voicemail.  Even Greg Sargent has given up on the "release the tapes" meme.

As William Jacobson points out:

There is nothing Sarah Palin could release even if she wanted to.  The recording speaks for itself and shows that the CBS affiliate in Alaska was hoping to find "registered sex offenders" at a Joe Miller rally or a fight, so that it could report that angle as the Joe Miller story of the day.

Is this the best Media Matters, with all its Soros money, can do?

He issues the challenge here:

I have a challenge, as well:

"Legal Insurrection Blog challenges David Brock to refuse to accept donations to Media Matters from currency manipulators and speculators who want to undermine our national sovereignty."

Why are they asking Palin anyway?  Breitbart, not Palin, broke this story:

On Sunday Big Journalism broke the troubling KTVA (Anchorage) voicemail story that showed reporters and producers plotting how to smear GOP candidate Joe Miller.”

Palin’s just out there as Alaska’s most famous resident, speaking through the media  (eeevil Fox News) of the media, condemning the Alaskan station, accurately calling the reporters “corrupt bastards”.

But hey, I have a challenge too!;

To demonstrate that Media Matters is not just a bought-and-paid-for propaganda arm for George Soros, the Center for American Progress, Barack Obama, and the Democratic Party, Media Matters should demand that the L.A. Times release the allegedly incriminating tapes of Barack Obama allegedly praising alleged PLO spokesperson Rashid Khalidi, and allegedly saying:

"Israel has no God-given right to occupy Palestine" plus there’s been "genocide against the Palestinian people by Israelis.

Take that million Soros bucks and put firm, unrelenting, pressure on the L.A. Times, Mr. Brock.  Once these tapes are released I won’t have to keep saying “allegedly”. Indeed, if these alleged rumors are false, and if Media Matters mounts a successful challenge to the L.A. Times, these tapes could actually vindicate Obama and quell the disturbing rumors which have been circulating since 2008.  Sunlight. Disinfectant. And all that.  In the event that these alleged rumors are false, I (and hundreds of other bloggers, no doubt) will be happy to correct the records. To borrow a phrase from Bill O’Reilly, “What say you?”

Sarah Palin slaughters Lady Liberty

Posted by danishova on October 21, 2010

The persecution of Sarah Palin continues. I found this lovely piece of graphic art/propaganda via a Facebook Friend:

The exhibit is called “Art is a weapon!”.  Will they be serving Mooseburgers Lady Liberty Burgers, or is this a Vegan only event? I wish I still lived in New York City so I could attend the slide show and report back on it (and the audience reception). Would it be better to remain incognito or don a “Don’t Tread on Me” t-shirt?  (Saturday, October 23rd should any curious readers live in the vicinity)!

I wish I could say that my facebook friend is stupid or ignorant. He’s not. He’s actually brilliant, but like so many in his circle (which I would categorize as upper-class/Boho/elite) he has been indoctrinated into the sort of Leftist groupthink that manages to make dullards out of geniuses.  

I wish I could say that these artists are merely college sophomores peddling their sophomoric ideas. But it turns out that while they call themselves “subversives” they are solidly in the ‘mainstream’ of the art world (and no doubt I’m a yahoo for not being familiar with their work).  Here are the facebook autobiographies of the artists (emphasis mine):

Subversive visions of two Native New Yorkers will be projected to live music, as Eric Drooker explores his years as a street artist in Manhattan, creating graphic novels, paintings, and his infiltration of the mainstream.
Best known for his New Yorker covers, Drooker recently designed the animation for the feature film, HOWL.

Joining Drooker will be Zina Saunders, another NY native, whose work can be seen in national magazines and newspapers like Mother Jones (current cover!), The New York Times, The Progressive (current cover!), The Nation, The San Francisco Chronicle, The Wall Street Journal, and The New Republic.

Here is Eric Drooker’s website, with his prolific New Yorker portfolio.  He’s clearly a very talented artist.  Meanwhile, his colleague, Zina Saunders (who ironically, was hired by the WSJ to do a very nice portrait of Andrew Breitbart) really has a thing for Sarah Palin (don’t miss the animated version at her website):

“A confused & Frightened citizenry votes against its own self-interest”? “They say they’re taking back America but really they’re taking your money!!!”

Really? We’re taking their money?!!  How does that work exactly, Zina?  I wish you’d confer with your comrades at Mother Jones and get back to me with a precise explanation.

Ms. Saunders repeatedly uses this cartoonish “Republicans are monsters theme”.  McCain is Frankenstein’s monster!  Sharon Angle wants to blow things up! (Er, shouldn’t that be Bill Ayers in that illustration?).  Gitmo is a torture chamber

But back to Sarah Palin. Sarah Palin wants to slaughter Liberty!  She wants to take away our freedom! She’s an alien who wants to crush the middle class!  This is so demonstrably wrong that it would be amusing if not for the fact that this portrayal of Governor Palin as a monster is so widespread, and so unquestioningly accepted, that it’s actually, dare I say, ‘dangerous’.   Yep, it’s dangerous because history has shown time and again that Lenin was right when he said, “A lie told often enough becomes the truth”.  And sadly these artists are not merely being paid to spread someone else’s propaganda messages. They are clearly true believers.
